Jessie J hit The Voice UK stage last night. For the Semi Final show the coach donned super sexy purple mesh and lycra panel catsuit with cap sleeves and deep-v back detail by Alice Vandy.
Styled by Karl Willett, Jessie accessorized the look with Mawi statement earrings and necklace.
Jessie’s catsuit is available in black, white, red, purple and turquoise at Alice Vandy.

Jessie J was among the stars who attended the third annual ELLE Women in Music event.
She hit the red carpet wearing “Jana” matte black transparent leopard print dress with gold zip detail from cuff to cuff from Louis Heal for Luxury Latex diffusion range exploring the dichotomy of constructing glamorous eveningwear with atypical fabrics such as latex. Incorporating his trademark leopard print and penchant for bold metal hardware, Louis has designed three matte black latex dresses with slashes of gold zips running down arms and asymmetrically across torsos.
Vintage Chanel Lion Head Necklace from Liz Mendez Vintage and “Jemma” platform suede boot by Dolce Vita (available at Jildor in black and at Solestruck in a bunch of colours and prints) completed this sassy red carpet look.
For the performance Jessie donned custom red leopard catsuit by Alice Vandy, and her Jeffrey Campbell Black Silver Lita Spike ankle boots.
Loving the ombre hair, Jessie!

As promised in the previous “HER MANY…” chapter, here I come with another catsuit special. Jessie J is one of the queens of catsuits and this chapter is all about her many second skins you guys asked me about.
One of the first catsuits she wore last year was the engineered koi seamless lace knit Jessie donned for 2011 Brit Awards.
The catsuit, also featured on the “Who You Are” cover, was custom made for Jessie by Alexander McQueen (I’m sure some of you have the top or leggings in your closet).
During her performance at Birmingham’s O2 Academy, Jessie wore another custom made piece. Black one-leg one-sleeve studded catsuit by London based costume designer Lyall Hakaraia.
Lyall created several costumes for Jessie, including the sequins and beads embellished nude one-piece she rocked at MTV EMA stage.
For her performance on Jay Leno Show, she opted for yet another beautiful seamless knit second skin.
This black baby belongs to Faster by Mark Fast AW11 collection, and you can get it at Seven.
Jessie loves Mark Fast’s knits.
She wore several looks from both lines, including baby blue crystal embellished catsuit from Mark Fast SS11 collection and black second skin with cutout and mesh details from Faster by Mark Fast SS12 collection, she was photographed wearing at “Demons Never Die” UK premiere and Q Awards respectively.
For “her” YRL Magazine issue release party Jessie donned Warrior Full Body in black jersey and parchment mesh with cap sleeve, with back leg strap effect and shield front design from London-based designer Simon Preen.
Simon is another favorite designer of Jessie’s so I believe you’ll recognize most of the hand made minimal gothic fashion looks from his collection available at ASOS Marketplace.
At Glastonbury Festival stage it was black and white tribal print catsuit from Danish designer Sara Bro Jørgensen.
Sara graduated from Royal College of Art in 2010. Her work draws from 2D imagery and the multi-tonal qualities of black and white photography, employing a spectrum of fabrics from chunky hand knits to paper thin silk tulle.
The piece belongs to Sara’s SS11 collection.
For her very first concert at VIP Room in Paris, Jessie donned sleeveless yellow unitard with brush stroke print design, cut-away neckline with asymmetric strap and cross back detail from ASOS (currently available online).
And here she is at MOBO Awards rocking one of my top three favourites Jessie J catsuits ever.
Her “Jewel” catsuit belong to fusion of the art and fashion illustrations of 1920′s illustrator Erte as well as Michael Ende‘s German fantasy novel The Neverending Story inspired “Oracle” SS11 collection of Australian design duo Anna Plunkett and Luke Sales, the heads, hearts and hands behind Romance Was Born label.
Love. Love. Love.
At Blackberry Launch Event stage it was Galaxy Print Jumpsuit from Finnish-born Sini Moilanen‘s Tramp In Disguise label “It All Started From The Big Bang” collection, inspired by evolution theory.
Jessie’s boot above, embellished with Swarovski crystals, was work of London based stylist and costume designer Carley Hague, part of the 2011 MTV VMA look. Carley spent hours and hours Swarovski-ing the boot and the crutches (both the crystal corset and the tights were custom made by Lyall Hakaraia).
Since Carley custom made several garments for Jessie, including three tailor made catsuits (her specialty!), I virtually traveled to London and visit Carley in her studio.
Carley told me she cooperates with print designer Isobel Webster, who develops the prints for the catsuits she custom made for Jessie’s Children In Need Rocks Concert , BBC Radio 1 Xtra Live and Jingle Bell Ball 2011 performances (the metallic reptile print with chunky crystal embellishment catsuit is another of my Jessie J all time favorites) .
All below pieces were created and customized for Jessie. And now you know a little bit more about the lady behind them.
Visit Carley Hague to see more of her styling and design works.
For F 1 Rocks Jessie wore not one but two different catsuits.
The first one was custom made for her by London based model and fashion designer Alice Vandy.
The second, also custom made, is Galaxy Purple Catsuit designed by James Lillis for Black Milk (last pieces from the limited edition still available online!).
The last catsuit you asked me about was the purple catsuit Jessie donned for VH1 Divas performance.
The print is called Donuts and Meat Camo and the piece was custom made for Jessie by Cassette Playa (you’ll remember another Cassette Playa second skin from “Domino” video fashion credits).
Catsuit lover? Visit “Shopping Tips” section (you can also get in via sidebar banner) and check-out the first few I found for you. Much more coming. Catsuits, jumpsuits, bodysuits… Will keep you posted.
Most of above pieces most probably wouldn’t be seen on Jessie and many of them wouldn’t even exist, if it was not for her dear stylist, Kimi O’Neill.
Kimi has introduced me to several British talents I wouldn’t know today if it was not for her. Follow her on Tumblr or Twitter for the upcoming Jessie J fashion related news!
