It wasn’t just the ACE Awards that saw a red carpet rolled out in celebration of dazzling accessories last night, because over in the Hollywood Hills, a whole host of A-Listers were clamouring to grab a sneak peak at the Jimmy Choo for H&M collection. And it seems many were lucky enough to have the coveted treasures in their wardrobes already, as we spotted several wearing the sexy shoes and to-die-for bags. So now we've spent most of the day fashion-fantasising (in between working terribly hard, of course!): could we mere mortals get away with teaming those leather treggings with the sparkling zip-up cardigan à la Hayden Panettiere? Or perhaps we should try channelling Paris Hilton by wearing the jumpsuit with a colour-popping clutch... Oh, the combinations are endless! Get your celeb-spiration here.
Never one to let us down in the style stakes, Whitney Port paired her favourite Ashish leopard-print booties with an oversized biker jacket and statement clutch and we love her Heidi-esque braids – the ideal hairdo for bringing a feminine flair to her tough outfit. Hayden also worked the rock chick vibe with a flash of animal print, looking head-to-toe fabulous in the new collection and understandably so since she often indulges in guilt-free shopping sprees at the high-street store. 'I was recently in Italy and instead of going to other stores, I went straight to H&M,' the starlet said. Smart girl. Another leather-clad attendee was Jimmy Choo president herself, Tamara Mellon, who perfectly embodied what she described as the collection’s 'attitude and spirit of laid-back party glamour' in the leather one-shouldered dress Graziadaily knows is her hot pick from the collection.
Cat Deeley did us Brits proud in this embellished Christopher Kane for Topshop mini with dangling beads and a pair of killer heels. Not unlike Olivia Wilde, who also drew attention to her pins in this Swarovski crystal dress and studded gladiator heels, all straight from the collection. Who knew high-street dressing could be so bling!
Another sparkling member of the glitterati was Nicky Hilton who opted for a Jimmy Choo for H&M LBD complemented by her crystal-studded star clutch, while sister Paris toughened up her Barbie image with a funky jumpsuit from the collection, costing a bargainous £39.99. Her signature pink snuck in courtesy of the plastic clutch which retails at the same price! We always knew she was just like us, aside from the whole heiress thing...
M.I.A. performed at the event dressed in an awesome Jean Charles de Castelbajac shark dress with Jimmy Choo for H&M over the knee leather boots while Lost star Maggie Grace went for a more demure look and lived up to her name in this ivory dress, sexed up by her black patent pumps from the collection. And last but not least is little Lily Collins who’s been taking the fashion world by storm thanks to an endless stream of invites to all the hot events recently. How adorable does she look in this sparkling jacket and hareem trousers? We’re keeping our eye on this one!
Don't forget to nab your key pieces from the fashion and footwear collection when it hits UK stores on Saturday November 14th. We’ll see you at the front of the queue so get those shopping rules memorised!
