SAt Stella McCartney, VV Brown mixes a little softness with her signature edge.
SAs usual, Clemence Poesy is the ultimate modern gamine. At Chloe.
S Julia Restoin-Roitfeld takes a maximalist approach, but retains her mere's slightly goth aesthetic — at Givenchy.
SAlso at Givenchy, Nicole Richie pares down her look to the sexy, Emma Peel-ish essentials.
S Jade Williams gives a cool early-90s spin to Stella McCartney lace.
S Florence Welch — naturally — lends her Givenchy a dose of granny-chic cool.
S Daisy Lowe is quirky-cute at Sonia Rykiel.
S Rosamund Pike, a total, Lanvin lady.
S Liv Tyler has discovered one sure-fire way to deflect the paps: an enormous, snarling Givenchy Rottweiler plastered across one's midsection.

SDoes Kanye West signal the blessed end of the leopard reign? One can only hope, at Vivienne Westwood.
