Armani Prive Spring 2014 Front Row

Armani Prive Spring 2014 Front Row

Celebs gathered to view the Giorgio Armani Prive Spring 2014 show as part of Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week on Tuesday (January 21) in Paris, France.

Paloma Faith: Always a delight to behold, Paloma of course opted for something uber glamorous, wearing a black pleated-fan-bodice Giorgio Armani Fall 2013 gown with a velvet skirt for her grand arrival. You may be thinking a gown is a bit OTT for a fashion show, but the show was at 8.30pm and was to be followed by a dinner – and this is Paloma Faith we are talking about, who never does things by halves.

Zhang Ziyi: The Asian actress was considerably more demure, wearing a magenta Giorgio Armani Spring 2014 embellished fitted jacket with black fitted pants, which she styled with black pumps and a black-and-white clutch. This look says everything about Armani: classic, timeless and oh so very elegant.

Kristin Scott Thomas: The English-French actress had the same idea as Zhang Ziyi, but sadly I wasn’t as enthused by Kristin’s execution. I much prefer the runway styling of this look, being orange, black and black rather than Kristin’s orange, orange, black and blue. Swap the orange silk blouse for a black one and lose the navy clutch and I would be more inclined to like this look.

    I actually prefer Kristin’s looks to Zhang’s :P, but Paloma is still my favourite of the bunch.
    Oh and btw, I think Karolina Kurkova wore the same or a similar dress as Paloma last year.

      I knew someone else wore that dress, but I couldn’t remember who! Thank you!

    Not liking any of these looks

    Zhang Ziyi all the way, simple, polished, elegant, her magenta jacket is very nice. Paloma – way ott (plus I think we’ve seen this gown before) Don’t like Kristin’s outfit, the orange jacket included.

    Kristin’s choice of the blue clutch is really a mystery. I agree with Nat39 that Zhang Ziyi is the best of these three, and she looks lovely if slightly boring.

    I hope to see even an Anna Dello Russo post on this front row because she looked amazing and incredibly elegant (yes, I can’t believe I said “elegant”).

      I agree! ADR looked lovely. Shock and awe!

    I can get on board with Paloma’s dress, but the hair really needed to get out of the way.

    The most pressing issue coming out of the Armani Prive show was W.W.C.W.? (What will Cate wear?) What do you think she will wear to the oscars?

    • Serenity January 23, 2014 at 02:02 #

      Her stylist Elizabeth Stewart was there, and she said she wanted to see if she could find something to top the Globes dress. She would only hint that she thinks ,”We have something amazing to work with for the Oscars”.

    Zhang is my favourite.

    • Yeliz January 22, 2014 at 21:25 #

      Ditto.

    Thank you Catherine for featuring Paoloma. She looks amazing!

    I know Paloma’s look is a tad OTT for this event but I still like it best!
