Vogue Paris 95th Anniversary Party

Vogue Paris 95th Anniversary Party

A crush of chic beauties and models of the moment made for quite the spectacular showing at the Vogue Paris 95th Anniversary Party on Friday (October 3) in Paris, France.

Giovanna Battaglia: Everything was coming up roses, in rather dramatic fashion, for Giovanna who left no petal unturned in this Alexander McQueen Fall 2015 red rose organza and lace ruffle dress worn with a lace bra and black lace embroidered boots. I kind of wish that lace collar piece was missing in action.

Kendall Jenner
: The model went the sophisticatedly chic route in an Ulyana Sergeenko Fall 2015 Couture black velvet bustier gown constructed with a touch of youthful charm in the large collection of ruffle roses that dotted the hem of the dress. The finish of a ruby lip brought even more va-voom spirit.

Zoe Kravitz: Adding more rose-laced, flower-power to the proceedings, she rocked the Balenciaga Spring 2016 dress that she modeled during the label’s runway show paired with Balenciaga matching mules and complementary jewels. This is a more delicate side to Zoe’s style, but the full-on sheer story and high-waisted briefs has me fatigued on this occasion.

Alexa Chung: Leaving her more androgynous style vibes at home, Alexa trotted out a Valentino Spring 2016 girly dress complete with a ruffled hem and black tie sash plus balletic lace-up pumps. But all I could focus on was the lack of support around the bodice—and that the dress appeared as if it could fall off at any second.

Izabel Goulart: Sliced and diced, shredded and skin-tight, this Alexandre Vauthier Fall 2015 Couture little red number was sizzling, rating high on the hot meter. I actually quite like that the top half of the look was more covered up in a blazer-inspired silhouette. Perhaps all the cutouts have you saying, next, but there’s no denying the model in her brought out the best in this dress.

Lily Donaldson: Shining brightly in metallics, she wore an asymmetrical Saint Laurent paisley-imprinted ensemble with black pumps that was a wardrobe malfunction waiting to happen on her right side.

Gigi Hadid: Also donning her same catwalk look that she walked in the Versace Spring 2016 show, Gigi turned heads in the playfully sexy, fringe-embroidered dress. Normally, overtly chunky platforms will find no favour with me, but her Versace Spring 2016 neon buckle soles punched up this look in top form when black pumps would have killed the energy.

Lily Aldridge: King Midas has nothing on Lily in her shimmering golden mini, with Lily also donning a sexy, embellished Fall 2015 Couture creation from the perennially sexy design house of Alexandre Vauthier. Of course, gold shoes from the collection were a must.

Laetitia Casta: Walking on the wild side in the most graceful way possible, Laetitia balanced the intense edge of boldly exploded animal print with the flowing silhouette in this Versus Versace Spring 2016 gown.

Vogue Paris 95th Anniversary Party4
Barbara Palvin: Déjà vu is the first word that sprung to mind in seeing this Ralph & Russo Couture Spring 2015 sheer, floral lace gown. ‘No, just no’ was the second set of words, as the dress just appeared tired and dated on the fresh young beauty.

Coco Rocha: Posing in a Temperley London Fall 2015 gold-embroidered design, the model proved that sheer gowns can be majestic and elegant.

Constance Jablonski: Impressively simple, the model’s minimalist Calvin Klein Collection white halter gown was a refreshing departure from some of the more contrived ensembles at the party—even if it perhaps could pass for bridal wear among some circles.

Lindsey Wixson: While she lost me with her styling and the curly bob, her Ulyana Sergeenko Demi Couture retro-esque, navy and red-patterned dress had an effortless, lighthearted spirit that possessed a sense of fun charm.

Bella Hadid: Not content to let the sheer black mania have a moment’s rest, Bella delivered her own brand of sultry allure in a Balmain plunge dress that left precious little to the imagination. From a distance, the see-through trellis detail and ruffles are fine, but upon closer inspection, there’s a missing piece of sophistication—and her lacklustre styling could have likewise used a breath of fresh air.

Vogue Paris 95th Anniversary Party6

Doutzen Kroes: Much like Constance, the model wore a sleek, body-skimming Calvin Klein Collection white gown to highlight her enviable curves. The simplicity allowed for a true celebration of her physique.

Irina Lazareanu: Channeling the glitz of disco ball mixed with glam-rocker edge, Irina wore a Saint Laurent dress with boots to add tough-luxe appeal. However, it still fell a bit flat.

Suki Waterhouse: Skipping the see-through, overtly sexy shtick, she wore a Temperley London Spring 2016 glittery chartreuse jumpsuit with Aquazzura ‘Very Eugenie’ platform heels. The black bag and shoes wouldn’t have been my first choice as they impart a sense of heaviness to all that shine factor, but the platforms were clearly chosen for their playful quirk.

    Kendall’s look is okay up until the white pom-poms on the bottom of her dress. Lily Donaldson’s dress is nice but MUCH to short.

  2. TinaL October 6, 2015 at 21:38 #

    Coco and Kendall.

  3. Caroline October 6, 2015 at 21:27 #

    I wish I could like anything from this round because they’re all beautiful but ugh no. Constance is my fav.

  4. TeaAtTwo October 6, 2015 at 20:29 #

    Constance and then Kendall are the only outfits that I really. Doutzen looks beautiful but the wrinkles in the dress are bothersome. Laetitia is working her dress but I don’t much care for the print. I would like to see someone don Giovanna’s dress without the harness and the boots. The others all need new stylists.

  5. Yeliz October 6, 2015 at 20:05 #

    Kendall is my favourite followed by Gigi and Constance.

  6. Betelgeuze October 6, 2015 at 19:58 #

    Coco Rocha is my favourite here. Also a shout-out to Alexa Chung for mixing up her usual beauty routine with that deep red lip.

  7. pinksugar October 6, 2015 at 18:28 #

    Loved Lily, Gigi, Coco, and Kendall. I never get the fuss over Zoe, she always looks a hot mess. Suki would have won me over had she left the clunky shoes at home.

  8. tuftufwang October 6, 2015 at 17:40 #

    Kendall looks fab. I just wished her styling rubs off a little on her sisters, especiallt Kylie and Kim, who are in dire need of help!!

  9. JHH36 October 6, 2015 at 17:37 #

    Kendall looks great as does Coco. The rest range from mediocre to try hard to awful, which is very disappointing given the event and how pretty these women are.

  10. Chris October 6, 2015 at 16:49 #

    Kendall looks awesome, maybe even BDOTW-worthy. I’m not too impressed by the rest… some okay-ish looks, some messes…

  11. Phoenix October 6, 2015 at 15:07 #

    Kendall looks fantastic. Constance is lovely.
    The rest have a rather dated feel to them or are just a complete mess.

  12. meme October 6, 2015 at 15:03 #

    Doutzen, Kendall and Coco are fabulous. All the sheer dresses are fug and when is this trend going to stop? Why do women want to be naked on the red carpet?

  13. Daria Zems October 6, 2015 at 14:33 #

    Amazing looks!

    With love from Russia!

    Kendall and Lily A. are the only ones who really nailed it for me. I kind of like Suki’s ensemble, but the styling is so off with the shoes and the bag. Everyone else ranges from Hot Mess to Boring to Dated.

    I couldn’t decide whether I like or not kendall’s look, but this pic have helped me: she, izabel, lily aldridge and constance are great! I zabel is among the few who can wear cut-outs, leather, fringes (etc) and still look good. Lily’s worked this shimmering dress amazingly, cause I’m not very keen about this kind of dress and I’m still loving it! constance was the super-chic minimal. Unfortunately, doutzen I can’t say the same about doutzen, she’s beautiful, but I just couldn’t like it as much as I wish.
    I think Barbara’s dress is unflattering;
    Lily donaldson’s played well and Suki could have amazed us if her shoes and bag were not these ones.

  16. Jenny October 6, 2015 at 11:25 #

    The first time ever I think Kendall looks elegant for once.

    Lily aldridge always on point, the styling is beautiful, those shoes and love the red lip.

    I like suki’s look but unsure if it was appropriate for the occasion.

  17. justme October 6, 2015 at 11:16 #

    Oddly enough, the two ladies in black are my favourites of the bunch.
    Kendall looks beautiful and Bella’s subdued presentation of an otherwise risqué dress works for me.

    Special mention to Gigi’s colourful ensemble. It’s not my cup of tea but it’s a fun look.

  18. CreoleLady October 6, 2015 at 10:42 #

    Love Constance’s Klein (polished perfection) whereas Doutzen represents minimalism gone wrong. Gigi Hadid (fab colors), Coco Rocha, Laetitia Casta and Kendall Jenner also look great.

  19. Evita October 6, 2015 at 10:25 #

    Coco is rocking her dress and dare I say that Kendall’s look is BDOTW-worthy?

  20. Christine October 6, 2015 at 10:21 #

    Kendall looks great

  21. Noemi October 6, 2015 at 10:04 #

    Kendall looks very beautiful but I always dislike that lenght when it comes to dresses, and most of all evening dresses.
    Lily Aldridge and Laetitia Casta are my favorite ones among these but I also loved how Leigh Lezark and Janice Alida were dressed.

  22. Amy October 6, 2015 at 09:20 #

    Kendall’s looking great here. her look is my fave of the bunch
    Coco is runner up and Lily gets the third place.
    Everybody else is either dull or trying too hard

  23. Alina October 6, 2015 at 08:41 #

    Kendall.

  24. alvaro_spain October 6, 2015 at 07:47 #

    Both Lilys, Izabel, Gigi and Constance are my faves!

  25. Ariya October 6, 2015 at 07:34 #

    Coco is my fav here with Kendall and Lily A a close second.
    Gigi looks good too.
    Although I love Suki’s culottes and Lindsey’s dress their styling baffles me.

  26. dafne October 6, 2015 at 07:11 #

    Ulyana Sergeenko is the winner! sych dresses have their own personality but Kendall Jenner and Lindsey Wixson wore them with style. best dressed for me ,both of them.

  27. Iva October 6, 2015 at 06:18 #
