Grazia Goes Live: Henry Holland Judges Fashion Jury Just 4 Days Before London Fashion Week!

14 February 2012

It’s just 3 days to go until London Fashion Week kicks off (met with a mixture of excitement and sheer terror from our fashion team!) and because we didn’t think Henry Holland had enough to be getting on with in preparation for his House of Holland A/W'12 collection showing on Saturday, we decided to pay one of our favourite designers a little visit to his Shoreditch studio to get a sneaky peek of his new wares PLUS his all-important verdict on the stars style for next week’s Fashion Jury.

Of course, Mr Holland may be slightly biased when commenting on stars like Alexa Chung and Leigh Lezark as of course, they are part of his inner circle and if they are in town this weekend, hopefully we might catch a glimpse of them on the FROW. Also in the firing line is actress Zoe Saldana and reality star Whitney Port so tune in to find out what Mr Holland thinks about their sartorial choices.

Grazia’s Editor-At-Large Angela Buttolph was lucky enough to get a glimpse of the fabulous A/W’12 collection but alas, dear readers, you will have to wait for our show report on Saturday as we simply can’t give anything away ahead of LFW. Also, don’t forget to check back here later today for some uber exciting exclusive Henry Holland gossip. How generous are we? It is Valentines Day after all and we do love you.

Angela Brimmer (Tue Feb 14 15:18:20 GMT 2012): "thank you for being quick".
Katherine Lilley (Tue Feb 14 15:59:53 GMT 2012): Zoe Saldana - This is fresh and strong, I will be trying elements of this outfit in the real world. 5/5 Whitney Port - The long-line jacket seems to swamp her and looks at odds with the miniature bag. I do love the boots though. 2/5 Alexa Chung - Surely this is her actual old school uniform, just with a cool bag and Friday night shoes. 2/5 Leigh Lezark - This fits her perfectly but doesn't excite me, it's missing her usual goth touch. 3/5
Fiona Howard (Tue Feb 14 17:08:36 GMT 2012): I think Alexa manages to carry off the 'preppy, quirky look' brilliantly. Her look is so effortless but stylish at the same and altogether she makes it work. The minimal accessories let the clothes do all the talking.
Sylvia Mulder (Tue Feb 14 17:50:42 GMT 2012): Loving how Whitney mixes her preppy collar and blazer with a floaty, feminine skirt. She always manages to infuse a few interesting and unexpected items into her outfit, without making it look too thought-out. And Zoe Saldana is rocking that fluorescent trend like nobody's business! Very few women would be able to pull off shiny, floral, turquoise trousers, but she apparently found a way to do it.
Gemma Moore (Tue Feb 14 22:40:44 GMT 2012): I absolutely adore Alexa Chung! She is just so quirky in all of the right ways! Loving the dress with the buttoned up collar, it's perfection. I only wish it were colder here in Australia so I could slip into something similar! Xx
Genna Louise Ingold (Wed Feb 15 09:28:23 GMT 2012): Zoe Saldana - WOWSERS. Zoe shows us how to rock a head to toe designer look. Glossy hair, glossy clothes and a mega watt smile to boot- superb! 5/5 Whitney Port - What makes this whole look work for me is her fabulous pink lippy and Vidal Sassoon hair! Miss Port is never afraid to mix things up in terms of lengths and styles, but I feel like she stopped thinking around the ankle mark... 3/5 Leigh Lezark - Miss Lezark has her edgy, goth look down to a fine art, but this falls flat for me. Although the gold structured dress is definitely unique, it's missing a certain 'something' 2.5 / 5. Alexa Chung - The Chung OWNS this look: sweet yet with a hint of sexy, muted colours and all eyes on the fabulous shoes and tights combo. 4/5
