The fashion runways were awash with more white than a Daz advert this spring/summer season. Featured on the catwalk of Christian Cota, Haakan and Gianfranco Ferré the models stunned in the clean, crisp look that turned even the darkest angels into erethral, whiter than white goddesses…
Wanting to get a piece of the fashion action, the celebs soon followed suit and white washed their own looks. Here’s a round-up of the best dressed women in white:
Before Cheryl Cole went into the hiding after the whole X Factor palava, she was spotted looking sensational in this white Stephane Rolland number at Cannes this year. The plunging neckline, gold accessories and sleek hair all amounted to a very sophisticated and sexy look.
Kim Kardashian simply oozes glamour in this halter Lanvin dress. The Grecian style and cinched in waist emphasise Kim’s fabulous curves and the flowing romantic look of the dress makes a refreshing change from her beloved body-con!
As always, Rihanna puts her own edgy twist on the latest trends, this time choosing to work her white look in androgynous chic. She keeps her Max Azria suit sexy with a daring neckline, feminine make-up and gorgeously tousled hair.

After the success of this years Oscar winning film Black Swan, ballerina chic is a must have for SS11, and luckily the catwalk offers plenty of inspiration. This trend is feminine, floaty and best worn through the plisse pleat.
At Lanvin, master of ladylike style Alber Elbaz, showed his knack for beautifully angelic feminine creations with models storming the runway in flowing pleated skirts in tones of dark navy and grey. Chloe, another leader in feminine fashion, also offered a ladylike ballet look from head to toe. Models wore their hair tightly pulled back and parted to the side while the clothes were in pale one-tone colours. The look was finished with those all important pleats, which reoccurred in gentle pastels in a very wearable skirt.
This essentially feminine trend goes hand in hand with simple pastel colours and block tones, and this was largely prevalent in the designers’ offerings. However, Christopher Kane’s popping neon brights featured pleats from the super skinny to wider kilt style, showing that today’s ballerinas aren’t all pliés and ponytails.
Get the look from the high street with Whistles, House of Fraser and Topshop who all have great pleated styles this spring.
