Temperley London's Autumn Winter 2012 show
Watching Temperley's show during London Fashion Week in February, every one of us Graziettes was dreaming of being a princess. We gasped as navy silk gowns with opulent jewelled straps and floor-sweeping cream lace robes glided down the catwalk for the Autumn Winter 2012 collection fittingly entitled Renaissance.

Kate has, after all, worn the British designer's pieces on several occassions and let's not forget her sister Pippa caused a stampede when she FROW'ed at Temperley's Spring Summer 2012 show.

She was spotted at the American Idol studio last night rocking a gold sequin cropped jacket hot off the the British designer's catwalk, but rather than channelling the regal vibe, J-Lo stayed true to her signature ghetto fabulous style. Hats off to that! Not only did she pair the jacket with a pair of matching harem pants, she blinged it up with gold Jimmy Choo ‘Leila’ sandals and chunky Pomellato jewels, topped off by lashings of honey-toned extensions.

Of course, the songstress is a bona fide pop princess so if anyone can transform Temperley's fairytale pieces into decadent urban wear, it's Jenny from the block. Commenters, however, have compared the look to a 'tacky '80s flashback'. Yikes! So let's hear your verdict on Jennifer's golden girl look...
