It's been a week of continuous fashion statements in style news this week what with the Golden Globes gowns and Kim Kardashian's manly tuxedo, not to mention Kate Middleton's shock choice of high street garment for her first official portrait.

The first portrait of Kate by artist Paul Emsley received torrid reviews including 'disastrous' and 'it looks nothing like her,' but amidst the devastation from art critics, Kate put her foot right in it in the style stakes.

Whilst other monarchs and royals including Elizabeth I will surround their paintings in opulent gowns and armour, Kate decided to choose a £57 French Connection blouse to sit for her first ever portrait. Nice one, Kate!

Meanwhile, in more exciting news, the Golden Globes happened this week where the likes of Jennifer Lopez in an exquisite nude and white embroidered Zuhair Murad gown and Megan Fox in a simple yet stunning Dolce & Gabbana pale beige number.

But one star who we just couldn't take our eyes off of was Kate Hudson, who blew everyone away in a borderline effortless manner by wearing a floor-grazing, slimming Alexander McQueen creation featuring a Victorian-inspired gold leaf embellished collar piece and waist belt.

Meanwhile, Taylor Swift looked almost unrecognisable in a voluminous satin Donna Karen plum coloured gown, leaving her bright red lipstick and full fringe at home for the evening as she continues to get over Harry Styles by looking hot at high profile events.

Leaving gowns aside, one star who didn't sport such a common ensemble was Kim Kardashian – who unveiled her weight gain fears due to her pregnancy by firstly admitting it, and secondly by wearing an androgynous tuxedo suit to mask her fear, and curves.

The black outfit did 'suit' her, and Kim looked incredible nevertheless with her slicked back on trend wet hair look and chequered black and white ankle boots keeping her contemporary and chic.

Kim was in New York with her sister Kourtney, arriving outside the The Late Show With David Letterman studios, the pair of them sporting the SS13 black and white trend.

Kourtney decided to girly her look up, however, with a white textured mini dress and fur-trimmed black jacket teamed with elegant black stilettos, creating a stark contrast with a more masculine-looking Kim.
