Team Ahlan! were super excited to have tickets to the Maison Martin Margiela show yesterday, especially as Lady Gaga has been wearing a lot of outfits by the Belgian designer. Unfortunately the pop queen wasn’t on the FROW like we’d hoped, but the show itself was a pretty cool experience. The bubble theme continued even to the show invitations that were physical bottle of bubbles! Transparent floaty materials were used throughout the pieces, the collection was very futuristic. The packed audience was even allowed on to the catwalk after the show ended to take photos of the models! A bizarre experience – no wonder Gaga loves them so much!

Yesterday we also saw Kate Middleton’s favourite designer Jenny Packham reveal her latest collection. The designer, who has even dressed Angelina Jolie, is not a fan of casual wear, but instead reveals collection after collection of stunning evening dresses. This season, Packham took a slightly different approach with beaded minis in bright blue and lime green hues. Of course it wouldn’t be a Jenny Packham show without the obligatory red carpet gowns. The embellished gowns in nude hues were fit for a princess!  

Oscar de la Renta had a lot to live up to after last season’s collaboration with John Galliano, but he didn’t fail to impress. With Karlie Kloss leading the pack of models who were kitted out in monochrome dresses and smart separates as well as statement block colour tulle gowns. Very chic!

Yesterday was a quiet day on the celeb front as many of the A-listers began to head to London. However Paris Hilton and Karlie Kloss continued to party last night alongside Leonardo Dicaprio and Christina Hendricks.
