Kristen Stewart has been busy promoting her new movie The Runaways, this time joining the director for a screening in Austin at the SXSW Festival. Her sleek leather Jasmine Di Milo strapless dress looked great on its own, so she paired it simply with black satin pumps and a bracelet. Get her exact dress now!
>> Designers have been flocking back to London Fashion Week for Spring 2010 to help celebrate the event's 25th anniversary — the latest convert is Jasmine Di Milo — but London is also losing a few headliners: first Giles Deacon, and now Acquascutum. The latter brand, which has been under turmoil as of late after a failed buyout attempt led by former CEO Kim Winser — who promptly left the company afterwards — has been up for sale by parent company Renown since last year.
Renown is currently in advanced talks with its Chinese licensee YGM Trading Ltd, but today released this statement: “While Renown awaits a sale of Aquascutum, they are consolidating their investment in the business during this period, and will therefore not show this September.”
Meanwhile, Paris Fashion Week is said to be getting a little Los Angeles flavor: Christian Audigier says he's showing there for Spring 2010 this October and promises a performance by an unnamed "big celebrity" name.
Isla Fisher's character in Confessions of a Shopaholic loves color and layering, but the actress took another route at the film's UK premiere. This ensemble stopped me dead in my clicks — it's sexy as hell but doesn't lose its fashiony side. The black-sequin Jasmine Di Milo mini dress shows off Isla's killer gams, while her Jimmy Choo sandals highlight her feet. And the accessories couldn't be more right. The black-and-gold swirly clutch hypnotizes while her huge earrings and ring mesmerize. UK Fab wants to know, do you love it or hate it?

Anne Hathaway and former Spice Girl Emma Bunton were spotted wearing Jasmine di Milo's artistic confection. Sweet Anne kept her look simple, accessorizing with a pair of dangly earrings and hot reptilian pumps. Emma added some spice to her life — pun intended — with a gold necklace and bold bangle. A structured patent bag and matching heels finishes off her look. Note how Anne's makeup is minimal and Emma's is red hot. Both are working the dress, but which look do you prefer?
Keep an eye out for UK's latest and greatest designer, the 25-year-old Jasmine Di Milo. Her designs—edgy and youthful with a sophisticated rocker flair—have just been picked up by 29 global outlets, including a number of U.S. boutiques. The child of Finnish and Egyptian parents, Jasmine studied at the London College of Fashion and trained in fashion workrooms at Harrods alongside some of Britain's top talent.
Di Milo started designing back in 2003, and for several years, she's been showing off her wares in a boutique located on the first floor of Harrods, which you should definitely check out if you're ever in London. I can't wait to see the results from her first big fashion show next spring in Paris. If you decide to order her clothes online, keep in mind that the sizes are U.K., so go up two sizes to get the right fit. (If you are a U.S. size 6, order a U.K. size 10.) Check out two of my favorite pieces that are now available online.
I absolutely love this gorgeous and funky red Stretch Silk Bustier Dress. It's got a padded bra top and a boned bodice, and the bottom has a drop of stretch in the fabric to prevent static cling around your backside. Buy it here for $588.
