Top names presenting at this year's London Fashion Week not only enjoy success in the UK, they also have a long history of finding favour on the world's red carpets. Victoria Beckham, Kate Moss and Liz Hurley have all chosen creations by Julien Macdonald, one of Britain's most celebrated creators, for high-profile outings. Then there was the risqué pink Macdonald number Kelly Brook wore to the premiere of Snatch, which almost upstaged the film itself, and who could forget the barely-there micro-mini Joely Richardson donned for the debut of Maybe Baby in 2000?
Kate Winslet opted for a scarlet sheath by Ben de Lisi when she attended the Oscars in 2002. And Julie Walters sported an elegant Jean Muir creation to the previous year's ceremony, when Billy Elliot was the talk of the town.
Another Londoner, Jenny Packham, has already found her way into the wardrobes of Nicole Kidman, Shirley Bassey and Sharon Stone, while the quirky femininity of Ronit Zilkha's evening and beachwear has won such notable fans as Beyonce and Mariah Carey.
Also popular in Hollywood are the romantic, flowing ensembles of Ghost, with Liv Tyler stepping out for the Pay It Forward premiere in a lime-green, sequin-encrusted top by the label. Fellow screen star Kate Hudson is also a fan, along with Catherine Zeta-Jones and Sandra Bullock. The husband-wife team of Suzanna Clements and Inacio Ribeiro have a similarly impressive client list, including Madonna, Michelle Pfeiffer and Demi Moore.
