Jaeger London Fall Collection 2010

Jaeger London presented blacks & neutrals for fall while incorporating fur, prints & cute boots. Walking the runway were familiar faces such as Joan Smalls, Tao Okamoto, Hanne Gaby Odiele were all among the cast to be seen. I loved the almost mod feel of the collection with the bucket hats. As the collection progressed I really responded to the neutral & earth tones used for the coats & suits. The whole collection was presented very well. The mix of black on brown was done in a very chic form as we viewed a caramel colored collar on a black coat. The leather skirt suit & drawstring pant on Okamoto were exceptionally memorable. The Jaeger team attempted to do velvet this season as well. Though not particularly far reaching in creativity, the collection is solid & a fair showing for fall.

Sunday night was a fashion filled night at the grammy’s. We had stars like Beyonce’ Lady Gaga Miley Cyrus, Jennifer Hudson, John Legend, David Guetta and so many more. I have compiled a list of some of the best and worst dressed stars of the night.

Alright now we know Lady Gaga is known for her out the box outfits and we know on anyone else, her dress would make us scratch our heads, or even laugh out loud. But it's Gaga, and Giorgio Armani himself collaborated on creating original show-stopping pieces like this just for the occasion. Armani was quoted saying "She is a modern fashion phenomenon," . And Gaga certainly was pleased: and she said "The series of pieces Mr. Armani created for me are truly iconic," . Looks like this was a match made in red carpet heaven! The dress, in case you missed it, looked like an up to date, spaced out version of Glenda’s dress from the wizard of oz

Taylor Swift may be a teenager, but her taste in gowns is wise beyond her years. The sparkly blue off-shoulder KAUFMANFRANCO gown is a stunner. She wore it extremely well and it’s a god thing Kanye didn’t come out when she beat Beyonce out for album of the year.

Mary J stepped out and said forget her age. The fuchsia color was bright, The cutouts were risqué, But somehow, sassy miss Mary J. Blige makes it all look elegant. We give her Gucci gown a thumbs up.

Heidi Klum never ever looks bad? The gilded mini by Emilio Pucci looks gorgeous on the model mom. Heidi Klum is one of the only women I know who can have 3 kids and go back to a size 2. She looked absolutely gorgeous Sunday night.

Miley Cyrus shows off her legs in a Herve Leger by Max Azria dress. We love the juxtaposition of long sleeves with a mini -- it's a classy, sexy look. The teen queen also wore blackened gold jewelry by OFIRA. Miley has been showing out a lot lately, I think she’s really maturing and actually has potential to be something Great.

Even though Keri Hilson didn’t win best new artist, she won one of the best dressed. Themermaid-bottom Dolce & Gabbana gown showed off Hilson's slim, curvy frame. Keri has never looked this good. I have a new respect for her because usually you would see her in something bright and kind of funky but she toned it down and made it work.

Jennifer Hudson has never looked better! The voluptuous star looked fabulously fashionable in this Victoria Beckham dress. I have been looking for some of Victoria Beckham’s stuff and to see it on Jennifer Hudson really pushed the envelope because she looked so Beautiful in that dress.

Some of us were iffy about this curve-hugging beige Stephane Rolland on Beyonce, but overall, the effect was different and pretty -- something unexpected. Speaking of unexpected, did you check out those silvery talons, and the unusual Lorraine Schwartz and OFIRA earrings, worth $200,000.

Usher took contrasting patterns to extremes, pairing a black and white polka dot tie and large check shirt with a grey suit with white piping. This every popular now with guys and suits and it’s something that all our guys listening need to look out for and get their hands on.

Maxwell defined simple style (and got hearts racing) by channeling Motown with retro sunglasses, a crisp black tux, white shirt and skinny black tie. This man’s grown and sexy style is worth so many words. He always has some nice fitted suit like I talked about last time, and it makes the ladies go bananas.

Worst Dressed.

Britney Spears did herself no favors by donning an unflattering black Dolce and Gabbana see-through mesh affair over a black bodysuit. Britney really could have missed me with that dress because it looked like she went to a fabric store, cut some fabric and wrapped it around her. It was a complete mess.

Ciara strolled the red carpet in a Givenchy getup that was a confusing combination of polka dots, twists, ties and lacy leggings that can only be described as the "sexy butler" look. But that’s trying to look at it in a positive light. I think Ciara tried way too hard make a fashion statement and failed miserably.

Rihanna graced the red carpet resplendent in a couture Elie Saab gown with a high neck, open back and intricate feathered detailing on the bodice. I just was not feeling Ri Ri’s dress at all. The feathers and neck brace was a disaster. It reminded me of what Lady Gaga wore to the VMA’S, the black dress with the neck brace and feathers. I usually let Rihanna make it because of her edginess but I cant let this one pass. She disappointed me.

Katy Perry, inspired by a recent trip to India with fiance Russell Brand, chose a figure-skimming, flesh-colored gown embellished with metallic flowers by designer Zac Posen. The unique dress appeared modest from the front, but plunged to show off her bare back. A sparkling bindi and beaded clutch tied together the Indian inspiration, and her Bettie Page hairstyle reminded us of her past forays into retro cool.

There were more stars that made it but we would be here all night talking about them. But over all I was pretty amazed at the amazing turnout of great fashion Sunday night. I tuned in to the pre show on E, and loved every moment of it. Then when the show came on I went crazy because their outfit changes were better than the red carpet dresses.
