Last night’s Best Dressed: Urban cool

01 October 2009

From the red carpet at the MOBO Awards to the streets of Paris, we spotted some seriously stylish ensembles being flaunted last night. So here’s our pick of the best dressed for you to enjoy. And with extreme jealousy aside, do tell us who gets your vote…



Paris Fashion Week has begun! And first to get FROW-ing at the Gareth Pugh show is the ever fashion forward, Rihanna. And she’s sure to get noticed in this little number. Channelling Amber Rose by flaunting her assets, the songstress opts for a sheer Gareth Pugh dress with horizontal stripes and a clutch bag that (just about) cover her dignity. Thumbs up for her slick of dark red lippy - gothic gorgeous!

Alexandra Burke

The leaders of the urban music scene were out in full force for the MOBOs last night but the X Factor winner is by far our fave. Donned in this AW ’09 Emilio Pucci mini dress, Alex reminds us her glam-over is set to stay. Hurrah!

Victoria (and David) Beckham

Our Vicky arrived at the launch of Mr B’s collection for Adidas Originals dressed in this uber-flattering William Tempest frock. She looks a tad over-dressed standing next to her casual-cool hubby but brownie points for matching Beck's shirt to those velvet violet Brian Atwood heels. Altogether now, awww!

VV Brown

VV continued to make her mark in the fashion world on the MOBO red carpet thanks to this printed silk shift dress teamed with her much-loved furry Russian hat, popped atop her signature quiff. Now all we want to know is where can we get ourselves a pair of those legs!

Lady GaGa

La GaGa stuck to her wacky ways in NYC to launch her new headphones (yes, really). In ruffled bloomers, fishnet tights and Dame Edna style sunnies, she sure turned a few heads! No surprise there then…

Lily Cole

The Brit model works her fashion credentials in this pretty blue shift, dressed up by the regal-esque statement necklace. And check out those cute flats! It seems heels really are dying an (albeit slow) death... Plus, Autumn has officially arrived today people, so we’re pleased to see Lily’s cracked out her tights to keep those enviable pins nice and snug.

Kelly Rowland

Crikey! Kelly dons her biker leathers at the MOBOs and looks every inch the rock chick for it. Luckily her leopard print boots and mammoth curls detract from those trousers being a tinsy bit too tight…



Shakira, Shakira! Those hips certainly don’t lie thanks to this mega black belt that nips in her waist and exaggerates her curves. We’re loving the ultra-feminine dress that’s funked up by her killer heels. A she-wolf indeed!
