Mouret Madness

Over the past month or so I've started to notice that every fashionable celebrity event is filled with Roland Mouret wearing stars and... well... I have a confession, he seems to have completely passed me by, I know absolutely nothing about the guy or his work, so I've been doing a fair bit of research on him.
First here are few celebs in his dresses...

 
 

As a Parisian gay-activist, it would be difficult for him not to be amazingly stylish but he is said to have "a native awareness of sensuality", which explains why his collections sell out within hours. His signature features are clinched silhouettes and subtle couture touches.
His 'Moon dress', made famous by our very own Victoria Beckham, was probably his biggest success, worn by numerous celebrities and selling out all over the world.
 


 Although I don't find his collections particularly fascinating I do think he understands the female form and the cuts of his dresses are simple but flattering, suitable for every occasion. Here's a few dresses I like from this seasons collection...


 
 



Sorry I haven't posted in a few days I've been kind of busy Christmas shopping etc(all sorted now apart from the parents). Oh and most of my friends are now back from uni so we had a bit of a party last night with a few too many drinking games. We also found some woks that we sat in and got the guys to drag us around the room while they were trying to play pool :) more fun than it sounds when you're a bit merry...


Hope you've all been having a fun Christmas period so far! Thank you all so much for following and all of your lovely comments, they make my day :D oh and don't forget to follow me on twitter here.

  2. His dresses are indeed cut to enhance the female form, and I adore them they are beautiful creations. I love your selection of new dresses, particularly the 3rd (lemon dress). I am glad to have found your blog.

  6. His dresses are beautiful, and definitley flatter the 'female form'. They're just not my style at all... a little too 'prim' for me! But so perfect for people like Victoria.

  7. My favourite of the looks is Reese Witherspoon, but maybe that's just because it is Reese and I love her. I didn't know too much about Roland either, but his dresses are classics. Not very in-your-face-fashion, but there is a subdued quality about his designs that I like.
