Fergie Gets Glamorous at Chanel Show

Through a sea of Chanel umbrellas, I am escorted to my seat for the Haute Couture Autumn/Winter show in Paris. The scene is breathtaking, like a fairytale wedding with white drapes, beautiful statues and white gardenias blossoming from either side of the catwalk. But there is one slight snag — the rain is threatening to wash the gravel catwalk away completely. As staff tend to the puddle-ridden runway, Fergie takes her seat next to Vanessa Paradis (aka Johnny Depp’s better half) on the front row. And the show begins. . .skin tight leather trousers encrusted with gems, feather adorned sunglasses, ball gowns in pastel shades with sparkling trims, lace and feather creations. The scene was like something out of a modern day Cinderella meets Barberella. “It was so glamorous” Fergie tells me backstage after the show. “I loved the long sleeve dress with gold medallions on it. That’s the one I want but I’ll have to shorten it about five inches because I’m not as tall as the models.” The ‘Glamorous’ singer and her pals left the backstage area wielding goodie bags and, more importantly, inspiration: “I’m getting new ideas for my video, I’m very inspired,” she revealed before jumping into her waiting car.

I love the outfit, especially the shoes! By who and where can I get them? Why she’s so serious? She looks like she doesn’t want to be there…

I think she is tacky; I hate her style.
Gorgeous boyfriend and awesome body but horrible style.

Fergie will never be glamourous, no matter how much her song says she is. I’ve always found she’s slightly bogan.

Joining the lollipop brigade, Ferg? Have a sammich. She’s too old to try and look like a trendy 20-something.
