Jumpsuit of the Day: Tess Daly in MaxMara

Tess Daly in MaxMara

41-year-old Tess Daly arrived at the Television and Radio Industries Club Awards held at Grosvenor Hotel in Central London last week, dressed in this bright orange jumpsuit. As stylish and tasteful as it appears from the front, the side angle shows slits that run thigh-high, and a wide cut-out back. The colour is fresh and the cut is funky, but although the garment may be stunning from the front, but in the back it awkwardly clings in places it shouldnt… 

The jumpsuit appeared in the MaxMara Spring 2011 collection, shown last September at Milan Fashion Week. Actress Brooklyn Decker sported a purple jumpsuit from the same collection a few weeks ago; a similar backless and belted style, with high slits.

Fall/Winter 2011 Trend: Luxurious Leather

Designers at Fashion Weeks ditched the traditional leather jacket and replaced it with slinky dresses and full skirts made from leather (and patent leather).

Kevork Kiledjian used the lace that he incorporated into many of his other designs, to create panels in this leather dress. Cynthia Steffe layered  the fabric to create a wrap effect, and Project Runway winner Christian Siriano made an impact with this full leather skirt.

Fashion East, Giles and Osman at LFW

Fashion East put forth this leather shirt dress on the runway, while Giles opted for a catwoman-esque look, and Osman for a simple sleeveless dress.

Versace, MaxMara and Trussardi at MFW

The Versace collection included this punky jacket-dress with red buttons and a pleated skirt. MaxMara designed a simple leather top with a belt, and Trussardi created a cinch-like effect with the fabric in place of a waist belt.

Junya Watanabe, Lanvin and Loewe at PFW

Junya Watanabe’s leather dress with zippers has a futuristic look to it, whereas Lanvin and Loewe opted for city-girl looks with their pieces.

Stay tuned for more trends from the Fall/Winter 2011 RTW fashion weeks!

Jumpsuit of the Day: Brooklyn Decker decked out in Berlin

Brooklyn Decker in Berlin, Germany

Brooklyn Decker stars alongside Adam Sandler, Jennifer Aniston and Nicole Kidman in Just Go With It– a romantic comedy released in theatres earlier this month. Last Monday, at the film’s premiere in Berlin, Germany, Decker arrived in this purple silk jumpsuit, slightly upstaging her fellow cast members. Aniston on the other hand opted for an LBD…but with ruffles, frills, a lace cutout and asymmetrical sleeves it was far from drab.

Decker’s jumpsuit was designed by MaxMara. Heres’ how it looked on the runway at his Spring/Summer 2011 RTW fashion show in September at Milan Fashion Week:
