Rocks?! Bit of an understatement.

Last night was one of my favourite nights of the year. Yes my dears, it was Swarovski Fashion Rocks for the Princes Trust, and as always, it didn't disappoint. Its a charity event where all the fashion houses collided with all the biggest names in fashion to provide a concert/catwalk for all the best celebrities to spectate. Its just a bit of fun really, and if you missed it, here are my notes on the night: 1. Quickly goes into action with Iggy Pop ironically partnered with Versace. Beautiful, flowing gowns to hardcore rockin'. Also great fun seeing Kate Moss headbanging and Gwyneth paltrow blocking her ears. 2. Then onto good ol' Lily Allen, [who looked very slim and gorgeous] with Chanel, her design fave. Lots of sparkles and futuristic cuts throughout. 3. Next, we saw a smoking-on-stage Johnny with Razorlight, teemed with Christopher bailey for Burberry, and saw leather, high gloss shoes and cuffs, and chunky knits, one of winters biggest trends. 4. Then, one of THE best singers, Roisin Murphy with Gucci, mostly flowing black peices with gold detailing. 5. Then YSL, and Mark Almond, one of the best collections, but was annoyingly hidden by Mark, and the violinists. 6. D. Shirley Bassey with Marchesa. A lovely romantic collection with gold, ruffles and feathers. 7. Next, to Armani with the beautiful Alicia Keys, who's key peices included the plunging corset and masculine suits, all in black and fuschia. 8. Then to THE BEST designer, and show of the night, Stella McCartney [No surprises there!!] and Shy Child. The models showed of the casual fuschia and black collection by playing musical chairs, [very entertaining!] lets just say, it was nice to see models smiling and acting as if they are indeed human. 9. [A barefoot] Joss Stone with the lovely Calvin Klien, showing simple lines, full skirts and cool prints and colours like mint and bright orange. 10. Timbaland & D&G with beyonce's best trend- padlocked shiny belts and full length shiny, sparkly dresses. Also showed a few ruffle-trim dresses which where nice. 11. Christopher Kane & Gossip [who i swear has gained weight?!] showed autumnal colours and thick tights, also lots of glitter and sequins. 12. Lastly, Nicole [PCD!] and Valentino, with lots of fluffy feathered peices and loose flowy, bright dresses with details. As a retiring present, Fashion rocks gave him a BIG diamond[?!] on stage as a goodbye. [Not that he needs it, im sure that hes earnt a good enough living to afford several big diamonds.] Then, as a finally, it was the Sugababes with 'Lady Marmalade' which was entertaining, especially when they got the sprinklers out =) Well.. im sorry there are no pictures, but as soon as i get them, i will post them up! Lotsa Love, Molly xo
