Although awards season has kicked off in America, you can rest assured that fashion styles have matriculated from across the pond. Just last night, Chloe Moretz wore a Smythson clutch with her yellow neon dress, Naomi Watts ruled the red carpet in an Alexander McQueen gown, Jennifer Lawrence rocked an insanely stylish pair of Nicholas Kirkwood heels, Heidi Klum showed off serious leg in a Julien MacDonald dress, and then there was Emma Watson, who we know represented her British roots in Tabitha Simmons shoes and a Peter Pilloto dress. Check out all these amazing dresses and accessories here!
This week in London, Alesha Dixon embraced the hot Summer weather in a Julien Macdonald gown at the Glamour Women of the Year Awards, while The Saturdays' Mollie King wore the mullet hem number way back in July last year. The short-front long-back style is fast becoming a favourite silhouette for Britain's Got Talent judge Alesha, but did she wear this particular frock better than Mollie? Vote below to let me know whether Alesha or Mollie wore it best!
Not only were the lovely ladies of the UK present for last night's big awards show, but a few prominent British designer dresses also made their way across the pond for the formal affair. Glee's Dianna Agron wore a red lace stunner from Giles Deacon, Nicole Richie glittered in Julien MacDonald, Busy Philipps was draped in a Grecian-inspired dress from Alice Temperely and Kate Winslet wore a Jenny Packham number that is sure to go down in the history of elegant award show dresses. Out of these four looks, whose do you like best?
Day four was an exciting one for London Fashion Week as it included shows by Christopher Kane, Giles and Burberry Prorsum. Burberry created an enormous space in Hyde Park to present the collection proving how much of a super power the brand is. Erdem also presented his latest collection which included watercolour prints in elegant shapes and cuts. There was also a presentation of Holly Fulton's latest work which was inspired by the New York skyline. Click through to see my favourite looks from day four.
The gorgeous Heidi Klum is glowing on the carpet tonight, opting for a gold, shoulder-baring Julien Macdonald gown. It's a bit of a '70s style moment, complete with a pair of multicolored snakeskin platforms; but natural makeup, gold studs, and simple swept-back hair keep things from going over the top. This gets my vote — what do you think?

January isn't even over yet, and Tali Lennox is already having an amazing 2011. The upcoming model (and daughter of musical legend Annie Lennox) has been unveiled as the face of two major brands this weekend; Acne and Julien Macdonald for Debenhams. The two very different campaigns show off Tali's versatility as a model. She is signed up to Next (this agency also represents Alexa Chung and Karlie Kloss amongst others), has already appeared on the catwalk at Dolce and Gabbana and looks set to be a name to remember.

This evening, the British Fashion Awards took place at the Savoy in London. The typically glitzy event attracted a host of stylish stars including Victoria Beckham, Naomi Campbell, Lara Stone and Alexa Chung.

In case you who hadn't noticed yet, the 1970s is turning in to a trend phenomenon for Spring! Not least in beauty. The New York runways were rammed with 1970s influences and it looks like the vibe continued in London. The catwalk atTopshop Unique looked like a tribute to high volume '70s glamour. (Check out this crazy backstage shot below. Cool, right?! I wouldn't want to try combing that one out!)
Next came Julien Macdonald's show, which worked a sultry Sharon Tate theme with winged eye makeup and Valley of the Dolls style hair. Then there was Twenty8Twelve, House of Holland and Basso & Brooke, all of which ran with a distinct '70s looks, with loose languid centre-parted waves and simple makeup. (Twenty8Twelve's was more of a Virgin Suicides feel. Meanwhile House of Holland went for full Boogie Nights pool party glamour.)

Backstage at fashion shows is like a different world. Models are roaming around with hair clips and bobby pins, meanwhile stylists, manicurists and makeup artists work like well-oiled machines to get each model ready for their runway moment. My favourite shots of fashion weeks are usually backstage ones. They're great for getting an insight in to how looks are created, not to mention getting a sense of the buzzy fashion week atmosphere. I rounded up my top shots from London Fashion Week to take a look at (Including this fab one of models sleeping at Topshop Unique). Click through this slideshow to check them out. Enjoy!
Last night, I was lucky enough to be invited to the Net-a-Porter 10th birthday celebration. The party was held at their brand new offices in Westfield White City and it was star studded. We sipped on peach bellinis and champagne whilst the DJ played classic disco tracks. Founder of the eboutique Natalie Massenet made a speech where she thanked everybody in the room and apologised to all the husbands! Click through to see photos from the party. Happy 10th Birthday Net-a-Porter!
