Celebs everywhere are uniting against grey skies and dark days: it seems they are not quite ready to let go of the summer yet, and they are expressing this through their threads.

Brightening up autumn

Refusing to conform to the usual autumn trends of dark colours, thick coats and leather boots, actresses, TV and radio presenters and even princesses across the globe have waged war on warm clobber. Instead, they are sporting typical summer styles including bold prints and floral frocks.

All fruit and flowers

Rose Byrne kicked it off at the beginning of the week when she rocked a colourful floral frock at Fashion Week in New York. Taking a leaf out of her book, Holland Roden got fruity when she sported a lemon-print dress to the Alice + Olivia show also in New York.

Maybe Holland and Lauren Conrad were sharing style tips because she arrived for the same show in a flower clad mini-dress.

Closer to home, pregnant Fearne Cotton showed off her flower child side in a sixties style floral print number at her clothing line launch in London. Even Kate Middleton, who usually dons quite reserved clothes, wore a shiny white dress with a bold floral print when she visited Singapore as part of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee tour.

Colourful frocks are versatile

These ladies have proved that colourful threads are not just for barbeques or summer holidays: they can be worn for virtually any occasion amd any season.

We think it's fair to say that this week, fruit and flowers have ruled the red carpet. Whatever next?
