The 2015 Awards season has officially started!

The 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards took place in Los Angeles, California on August 27th- and this year the red carpet was teeming with fabulousness!

Practically everyone stepped out looking fab (Lena Dunham……….girl…) and this red carpet has definitely made me excited for the upcoming fall shows and red carpet season leading up to the Oscars in 2015!

It’s a long list, but here are my favourite looks of the night!

Best Looks of the 2014 VMAs

The 2014 logo of the MTV Video Music Awards. Image MTV

The 2014 MTV Video Music Awards took place in Los Angeles, California on August 26th.

I’m going to be honest here and say that I never pay much attention to the “looks” seen on the VMA red carpet. It generally provides a limited supply of stylish red carpet looks, with most attendees showing up in outfits more suited for crazy stage costumes (Lady Gaga, I mean you) than the glamorous pre-show it should be (well maybe not glamourous– this isn’t after all, the Oscars).

That all changed this year, with most of the stars really stepping up their style game for both the red carpet and the show itself. The 2014 VMAs offered a lot of fresh, funky, street-style fabulous looks! How refreshing!

Here are my picks of the night’s best!

Jessie J

Jessie J kept it simple and glamorous in this pale lemon vintage Halston gown, which she paired with Charlotte Olympia heels and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry. Image GETTY IMAGES

Chanel Iman

I love Balmain and I love Chanel Iman! Putting them together resulted in red carpet perfection! She accessorized her look with Balmain leather jewelry and a pair of Casadei cage sandals. Image GETTY IMAGES

Gwen Stefani

Gwen Stefani looked gorgeous in this black and pink two-piece suit by L.A.M.B., crystal-studded Christian Louboutin pumps and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry.Simple makeup and a glamorous 40’s-inspired coiffure rounded out the starlet’s flawless look. Image GETTY IMAGES

Michelle Williams

Michelle Williams looked breezy and gorgeous in this graphic giraffe-print halter dress by Roberto Cavalli. Image GETTY IMAGES

Laverne Cox

The fabulous actress stunned in this sparkling Marc Bouwer mini and Jimmy Choo pumps. Image GETTY IMAGES

Miley Cyrus

I love Miley’s outfit! She braved the summery Los Angeles heat in this black leather look from the Alexandre Vauthier F/w 2014 Collection and silver Manolo Blahnik stilettos. It’s a bold choice and she pulled it off fabulously! Image GETTY IMAGES

Cher Lloyd

Another leather look! The brunette singer rocked this red hot Ina Soltani halterneck shift dress, which she paired with Jimmy Choo pumps and statement jewelry by Jacob & Co. Image GETTY IMAGES

Holland Roden

The actress looked simple and sweet in this net-overlay cutout dress by Milly. She accessorized her look with iridescent metallic Rupert Sanderson pumps and a sparkly Kotur clutch. Image GETTY IMAGES

Kelly Rowland

The proud mother-to-be was glowing in this glittery off-white Kaufmanfranco gown. She finished off her look with diamond jewelry by Lorraine Schwartz. She looks gorgeous! Image GETTY IMAGES

Charli XCX

This look works only because this is the VMAs. Charli XCX went for bright and bold in an electric Moschino x Jeremy Scott bodysuit, Nicholas Kirkwood shoes and a Vivienne Westwood clutch. Image GETTY IMAGES

Kendall Jenner

This is suprisingly chic! Kendall Jenner layered her Alon Livne trousers and mesh top with a La Perla bra, Giuseppe Zanotti shoes, a Jimmy Choo clutch and Jennifer Fisher jewelry. Image GETTY IMAGES

Beyoncé Knowles

Beyoncé may have worn two Zuhair Murad gowns on the red carpet, but this custom mosaic-print bodysuit by Tom Ford really stole the show! Her performance was the best of the night, and it was made even better by this fabulous outfit. Image GETTY IMAGES

Embrace the Rainbow?

Rainbow-hued hair has been around for a very long time.

Look back to the 1940s and 50s and it was a big thing for society ladies to sport glamorous updos in shades of pale blue, rose and lilac. In the 1970s punk idol Debbie Harry’s iconic platinum locks were sometimes tinted with a candy pink wash or decorated with graphic skunk-stripes, while in the 80s Annie Lennox sported a fire-engine red pixie cut. Gwen Stefani was rarely seen in the 90s without her hair dyed vibrant shades of pink, blue and orange, while Rihanna has gone cherry red many times since 2010. Katy Perry has followed suit by dying her enviable tresses every imaginable shade of violet, burgandy, blue, pink, lilac- even green!

The look is currently going through a mainstream renaissance, with stars like Rita Ora and Nicole Richie rocking the trend (sometimes to the extreme), but it has been a popular look around the fashion crowd for a much longer period.

Designers Vivienne Westwood and Betsey Johnson have had their psychedelic tresses for decades, while in recent years free-spirited models like Charlotte Free, Magdalena Frackowiak, Barbara Palvin and Chloe Nørgaard have embraced bold hair colours. Even those involved behind the scenes in the fashion world have been cottoning-on to the trend, with high-profile editors and stylists like Preetma Singh, Roberta Einer and Imogene Barron, being spotted with a variety of day – glow locks for the past few seasons. Let’s not even talk about the number of fashion bloggers who are currently trying out this look!

Designers have even been utilizing bright hair in their runway shows for the past few seasons; remember the Crayola-bright hues spotted at the Prada S/s 2014 show or the pastel bobs seen at the 2013 Chanel Resort show? Narciso Rodriguez, Alice and Olivia, Vena Cava, Thakoon…the list goes on and on, and it seems that there really hasn’t been a show in the past few seasons where a model with bright hair hasn’t been seen.

Extremely brave souls have dyed their whole heads, while the less courageous have incorporated wild colour into their look with chunky streaks, brightly-pigmented ombré effects and bold dip-dyed hairdos. From fluorescent neons to candyfloss pastels and deep jewel tones, it seems that no colour has been left untried!

With the Fall 2015 fashion season already in full swing, NYFW fast approaching, and countless trend reports already hitting newsstands, rainbow hair is predicted to get even bigger this winter.

I love this trend, but I’ll admit that I’m a little apprehensive to try it myself (I’m working my way up to trying a champagne pink!). It’s definitely not a look for the faint of heart. Bright hair is a look that guarantees a lot of attention- especially at non-fashion events where you’re basically the only attendee with rainbow locks. But I can see myself taking the plunge pretty soon. Maybe for the holidays… I’ll be doing some fabulous island hopping with my siblings and what goes better with a yacht than Caribbean sea tinged locks?

A word of caution to those of you considering this trend. With the harsh process of stripping your natural hair of all colour (blondes are incredibly lucky here!) and the vigilant post-dye regimen of deep conditioning treatments and colour touch-ups, you’ll have a look that’s incredibly high-maintenance. Colored hair also requires meticulous styling and color matching; it’s something that can very easily be ruined by the smallest style mistake, while picking the wrong shade initially could mean your color ends up either looking tacky or clashing horribly with your skin tone. Using too many styling products will turn your hair to straw, while under-using products will leave the hair unmanageable; over-cleansing horribly damages your hair while under-washing leaves your tresses looking greasy and stringy. Basically, its not an easy, breeze-y look – it takes understanding and work.

Let’s talk a little about styling. As I said above, bright hair only looks good if it’s meticulously styled. Try it long and flowing like a chic new-age hippie (think Chloe Nørgaard), in a simple braid, or worn in extremely glamourous Old Hollywood-styled coif. Personally, I prefer the third choice, and I think Rihanna and Nicole Richie’s red carpet hairdos are good examples of how to pull this trend off well. Simple, elegant and effortlessly chic, their rainbow – washed locks always look gorgeous when styled like this. Whatever style you choose, your hair must be kept in immaculate condition to pull this look off well.

Tempted to take the plunge? My advice is to not attempt to do this style at home, especially if it’s the first time you’re doing something so drastic. Invest your time and money into having your hair done by a professional, who can easily guide you out of mistakes in coloring, and will prevent your hair from becoming overly-damaged by the bleaching process.

Also, if you’re extremely apprehensive about dying your hair a bold colour, you by no means have to dye your whole head! Try some coloured highlights, chunky streaks, a bold ombré or even a dip-dye look. That said, there’s a world of high-quality temporary hair pigments out there if you really don’t want to take the plunge with something permanent. Be bold and experiment!

On a final note dear reader, I want to know what you think about this trend. Love it? Hate it? Find it cool, but not really your style? Let me know in the comments box!

Just please be sure you’re really looking Vogue fierce before you Instagram your new ‘do’!

Stay bold!

Biennale des Antiquaires Preview!

Biennale des Antiquaires is without a doubt the most prestigious jewelery event in the world. Held every two years at the Grand Palais in Paris, this event brings together the world’s top jewelers to showcase their finest and newest creations. 2014 marks the 27th installment of the event and I for one couldn’t be more excited for it!

A shot from Van Cleef and Arpels Peau d’Âne campaign, featuring the (clockwise from left) Prince Rouge clip: white gold, rose gold, pink and purple sapphires, red coral, diamonds and emerald; the Biches necklace: white gold, white diamonds, sapphires, malachite, turquoise, one pear-shaped emerald and emerald beads; and the Cascade Précieuse earrings: white gold, diamonds, sapphire and emerald beads. Image VAN CLEEF & ARPELS/GASPARD YURKIEVICH

Biennale is the quintessence of luxury; with breathtaking objects being found around each and every corner and it goes without saying that it is one of the most anticipated exhibitions in the world. As the Biennale’s main focus has always been on quality rather than quantity, this year is set to be smaller than previous installments. The exhibition has been edited and in 2014, just over 80 of the world’s finest craft houses will be showing as compared to the 150 in 2012.

2014’s event may be smaller, but it is no way limited when it comes to the calibre and the variety of pieces on display. In total 14 fine jewelers are taking part, including Giampiero Bodino Haute Joaillerie, Boucheron, David Morris, Graff Diamonds, Chaumet, Dior Haute Joaillerie, Piaget and Wallace Chan. Pair these companies with the brilliant set designs of Jacques Grange (who plans to transform the glass dome of Grand Palais into an exact recreation of the Versailles Gardens), and you get a fabulous event that no true lover of fine jewelery can afford to miss!

Biennale may not be open to the public until late September, but here you can see a small preview of my favourite pieces for the upcoming show. Enjoy!

Excuse the Fierce, it’s Balmain

Rihanna, Iman and Naomi Campbell (all in Balmain) by Emma Summerton for W Magazine Septemer 2014. Image W MAGAZINE/EMMA SUMMERTON

The new issue of W Magazine is out and in it there’s a fab article entitled Phresh out the Runway. It’s all about Balmain’s creative director, Olivier Rousteing, and it documents his whirlwind five year journey through the ranks of the fashion world that have resulted in him becoming the youngest head designer in the history of Maison Balmain.

Iman, Rihanna and Naomi Campbell by Emma Summerton for W Magazine September 2014. Image W MAGAZINE/EMMA SUMMERTON

In the article Rousteing discusses the various sources of his design inspiration and the aspirations he has for the future of the brand. His approach to design as a very simple one- the work he does for Balmain is just about, “Making beautiful clothes…There’s no need to be a torturer.” He also expresses his desire to incorporate more diversity and modernity into the rigid world of French fashion, boldly declaring, “My job is not just to design clothes but to also give a new vision to fashion.”

Which is where the fabulous trio of Naomi Campbell, Rihanna and Iman come in- gorgeous, confident, successful and extraordinarily progressively-minded, they perfectly represent Rousteing’s image of the the modern woman. “These women are inspiring to so many different people…bringing them together represents the concept I’m working toward,” he says.

For this I am thoroughly grateful to Olivier Rousteing. Not only do I love his laid-back approach to haute glamour and his drive to modify and modernize fashion’s restrictive image, but he’s provided me with an overdose of fierce!

Oh, and Rihanna is also W’s September covergirl, and stars in a wintery tribal-themed editorial by Mert and Marcus.
