London Fashion Week is over and it’s time to refresh your wardrobe. Judging by the runway pictures it’s time to dig out them old neon colours and give them a good iron because if it’s not loud it’s not on trend for spring/summer 2011. The LFW runways were a wash of rainbow, boldly clashing colours that are bound to brighten up your spring/summer 2011. This is going to be a big change from the minimal nude and camel colours of the autumn/winter but without a doubt it is something that we are all going to have fun with. Gucci, Marc Jacobs and Jil Sander are three of many LFW designers that are set to embrace the riot of rainbow colours this spring/summer.

I hope that I am one of many who are delighted to discover that lace is still very much on trend this season. Ok it’s nothing new but we can all sigh with relief that lace is firmly cemented in the fashion bible as a keeper. So whether your Heroes star Hayden Panettiere or Lauren Conrad lace is a must this season.
The Oscar dresses did not disappoint this year. Anne Hathaway defiantly gets the award for the most stunning selection of dresses in such a short space of time. She took the limelight with eight stunning dress changes ranging from a cream coloured strapless Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci gown to a stunning Tom Ford floor length, grey lace (yes lace) and crystal embellished dress. The best dressed for me would be have to be a tossup between Mila Kunis wearing Elie Saab couture (again lace) and Reese Witherspoon in her Sixties-style Armani Prive black gown.

Now onto the Oscar winners... It was no surprise that the King’s Speech topped the leader boards once again, I am now finding it even more embarrassing to admit that I still haven’t been to see it. Shame on me! I am delighted that Inception, The Social Network and Alice In Wonderland received Oscars. However my most deserving winner goes to the blooming Natalie Portman who won Best Actress for her performance in Black Swan and looked absolutely stunningin her purple Rodarte dress at the awards.

The Rite staring Colin O'Donoghue, Anthony Hopkins and Ciarán Hinds hit the cinemas this week and it is a must see. I went along to see its first day of release and my warning is it is not for the faint hearted. The storyline in a nutshell is an American seminary student travels to Italy to take an exorcism course, but do not judge until you have actually seen it. The exorcism scenes are not your usual disappointing, laughable scenes, The Rite actually delivers an exorcism film that is well worth seeing.
