Front Row @ Armani Privé Spring 2015

Armani prive front row

As you would expect, the front row was packed with celebrities at the Armani Privé Spring 2015 show held during Paris Fashion Week in France yesterday evening (January 27).

Sonam Kapoor: The Indian goddess looked resplendent wearing an Armani Spring 2015 jumpsuit featuring an embellished body and sheer cropped trousers. I love this look for several reasons: the colour, the detailing and the subtle cultural references. She couldn’t have selected a more fitting piece. Having seen this in person last night, this picture is just not doing her justice. She was majestically exquisite.

Paz Vega: The Spanish beauty was back to her best, looking effortlessly statuesque and elegant in satin Armani separates. At first I wasn’t too sure about the coat, but it helped create a strong silhouette with the bold shoulders and long length.

Get The Look: Felicity Jones’ Producers Guild Awards Tousled Bun

Get The Look Felicity Jones' Producers Guild Awards Tousled Bun

Celebrity hairstylist Cervando Maldonado worked with Felicity Jones for the 2015 Producers Guild Awards on Saturday (January 24).

Cervando said, “My inspiration for the look was a modern tousled bun.”

Here’s how to get the look.

On damp hair he first applied Kerastase Volumactive Mousse from roots to ends. Then he sprayed Oscar Blandi Volumizing Spray throughout the hair.

Next he used a Harry Josh Blow Dryer and rough dried the hair until it was almost dry, using a comb on the top of the head and around the hairline to create lift and texture. He used a medium-sized Ibiza Boar Bristle Brush to blow out the hair starting on the top and the front of the head, taking it section by section to create lift and semi-smoothness. After blow drying each section, he put the hair in a small Velcro roller to create lift and hold. Once the hair was set in the rollers from the front of the head to the crown only, he smoothed out the hair around the face with the brush and left the rest of the hair at the back of the head in its natural texture.

Once the hair was dry, he took all of the rollers out except the one at the very front. He then used his hands to rake though the rest of the hair, pulling it up into a ponytail above the occipital bone. He pinched the hair in place and wrapped a bungee hair band around the hair to secure it. Next he took the ponytail and wrapped it around into a loose bun, using bobby pins and hair pins to hold it in place. He then took the last roller out and pushed the remaining hair back with his hands, pinning it in place right above the bun.

Next he sprayed a combination of Oribe Dry Texturing Spray and Sachajuan Volume Powder through the top of the hair and the bun to create great texture and keep the height in the front. He finished it all off with Sachajuan Super Strong Hold Hairspray, spraying lightly through the whole head for a great hold with a natural look.

Isabel Lucas In Jenny Packham – ‘The Loft’ LA Premiere

Isabel Lucas In Jenny Packham - 'The Loft' LA Premiere

Isabel Lucas attended the screening of ‘The Loft’ held at the Directors Guild Of America on Tuesday (January 27) in Los Angeles, California.

The Australian actress wore a Jenny Packham Fall 2014 gown.

In true Packham style, the exquisite piece made a serious impact due to its floor-grazing design and all-over silver sequin and crystal embellishments.

I was somewhat surprised by this choice as Isabel is known for her boho and often alternative laidback style, but she was in full glam mode for this occasion.

A simple updo and gold Lee Savage clutch rounded out her sparkling look.

Freida Pinto attended the 30th Santa Barbara International Film Festival Opening Night presentation of ‘Desert Dancer’ on Tuesday (January 27) in Santa Barbara, California.

The Indian actress wore a silvery-grey Mason by Michelle Mason dress in a streamlined silhouette with sheer panels showing off glimpses of skin for a touch of sensuality.

Oozing plenty of charm, both in style and character, the look was styled with a Dannijo statement necklace, which instantly elevates the look, and Salvatore Ferragamo shoes.
