What better way to cap off five fabulous days of fashion than with Roland Mouret himself? The French designer was in Singapore to present his much-awaited Autumn/Winter 2012 collection on the last night of the Audi Fashion Festival.
He stopped by to present the last show, shrugging off jet lag, at the behest of old friend Colin McDowell, who is also the Creative Director of the Audi Fashion week.
The French designer grabbed fashion headlines recently thanks to Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, who wore his all-white Lombard gown to an event in London and his navy Manon dress during an official trip to Canada. Celebrities such as former French first lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, Victoria Beckham and Dita Von Teese have worn his designs as well. In fact, Von Teese donned a Roland Mouret purple Gali dress at the Singapore Jewelfest last year.
But back to the runway: Mouret treated his fans and Singapore’s stylish set to soft hues of green, beige and blue on well-fitted, well-tailored, ready-to-wear pieces that can literally take you from the boardroom straight to the (rather classy) dinner table.
Models were decked out in fawn and cheetah prints, wool crepe tabards, tops, skirts and dresses with Mouret’s sophisticated signature drapes, sculptural lines and folds. Striking details like big pockets, grey fur and fabric belts make the lovely skirt suits sure winners in my book too.
Add in pumps or ankle boots, and you’re more than ready to step off the catwalk! No doubt the guests are hankering for their own Mouret right now.

The boys of “21 Jump Street” are back and are going undercover- this time in college! “omg! Insider” correspondent Keltie Knight was on the set of “22 Jump Street” with Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum and got the inside scoop on all the behind the scenes deets. Channing revealed that he has been doing most of his own stunt work for the film which hits theaters next June and admitted, “I'm getting too old for this. I'm banged up my body's not working like it used to.”
Bob Barker is back on “The Price Is Right” and “omg! Insider” correspondent Keltie Knight sat down with the TV legend and his successor, Drew Carey as they celebrated Bob’s 90th Birthday. The hit CBS show has been on the air for over four decades and Angelica McDaniel, Senior Vice President, Daytime, CBS Entertainment has a theory to the show’s success. “It’s the longest running game show in the history of TV and this is because of Bob Barker,” she explained.
“omg! Insider” co-anchor Kevin Frazier sat down with Lupita Nyong'o and she opened up about everything from fashion, her breakout role in “12 Years a Slave” and what has been the most overwhelming thing since the film’s release. She explained, “The red carpets are very overwhelming because there's all these flashes going at you and you know you get dazed and confused by all of it and people yelling your name first of all and you're like, ‘Wait, you know my name?’ you know.”
Arizona’s Joe Cantrell simply loves Walmart. The disabled former pro wrestler and family man would often take advantage of Walmart’s price matching guarantee on his twice-a-day visits. That is, until now. After an employee refused to match a deal on some Christmas ornaments, Joe complained to management and instead of dealing with it, management at the San Tan Valley Walmart called the Sheriff claiming they were being intimidated. Now poor Joe is banned for life! I guess he's a Target man now.
