Front Row @ Christian Dior Fall 2012 Couture

Celebrities, editors, designers and even royalty were seated in the front row of the Christian Dior Fall 2012 Couture presentation held in Paris, France, this afternoon.

Mélanie Laurent: The French actress was my favourite from all the attendees at this event. I’m most in love with the printed bell-shaped tiered skirt which she styled with the same satin blush sleeveless top from the runway. I’m not missing the necklace, but I would’ve preferred it had she tied back her beachy wavy locks.

Princess Charlene of Monaco: Dressed in head-to-toe pink Dior, the Princess looked uber chic even though I wish she opted for a belt.

Anna Dello Russo: The editor-at-large for Vogue Nippon has always been fearless when it comes to fashion, but I’ve never seen her show off so much skin. Dressed in a hot-pink Fausto Puglisi Spring 2012 dress with cut-out details and an elaborate gold-embroidered detail, the look is styled with all pink accessories including a Valentino clutch and YSL shoes. TMI or fearless fashionista?

Anna Wintour In Marc Jacobs – 2012 CFDA Fashion Awards

It would not be a true fashion awards show without an Anna Wintour sighting.

The Editor-In Chief of American Vogue attended the 2012 CFDA Fashions Awards in New York City on Monday night wearing a Marc Jacobs dress – as she did last year – from the Resort 2013 collection.

While the collection debuted just yesterday, Anna had first dibs on the brightly coloured collection; adjusting her chosen floral dress into one of her beloved sheaths.

The sparkling floral print is a festive spin on Anna’s signature look, but in the styling department, it was business as usual.

Flawless bob? Check. Sunnies at night? Check. Favourite Manolo Blanhik heels? Check. Beaded necklace? Check.

Anna certainly has her signature style, and she is sticking to it.

I love the addition of the maroon belt and the beige croc clutch which is as rare as seeing Jessica Chastain carrying a clutch.

Anna Wintour In Prada & Bee Shaffer In Erdem – 2012 Met Gala

As host of the ‘Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations’ Costume Institute Gala, held in New York this evening, Anna Wintour was the first to arrive on the red carpet with her daughter, Bee Shaffer.

Anna surprisingly didn’t wear Chanel this year; instead she opted for a Prada custom-made gown with a gold lobster motif.

Wearing her favourite beaded necklace, and Manolo Blahnik kitten heels, no doubt, the Editor-in-Chief of American Vogue completed her look with a white fur cape.

Bee, who always wears a dramatic gown for this event, didn’t let us down by looking equally beautiful wearing an Erdem Fall 2012 gown.

The blue, black and white gown with embroidered lace had a V-necked line and a beautiful train.

Bee lets her beauty shine through with minimal makeup and stunning chandelier earrings.

What a great way to kick-start proceedings.

Anna Wintour In Versace – ‘Evita’ Opening Night

Here are a few words I never thought I would hear myself say: Anna Wintour in Versace.

The American Vogue editor-in-chief with a love for all things Prada, Chanel and Marni donned a look from the Versace Fall 2012 collection whilst stepping out to the ‘Evita’ opening night at the Marquis Theater in New York City.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe this is a Versace first. Well, at least in my blogging lifetime.

If it weren’t for her trademark Manolos, sunglasses and bob, I don’t think I would’ve believed that Wintour was wearing Versace.

Her cross macramé long-sleeve sheath dress with a high neckline was accented with a beaded necklace.

This was really a night for firsts, because I can’t recall ever seeing Anna carrying a clutch either. She usually makes do with just her Blackberry.

Is Anna revamping her style?

We will have to wait and see.

Anna Wintour In Tom Ford – Versace Étoile De La Mer Sunglasses Launch Party

Anna Wintour posed alongside Donatella Versace at her exclusive launch party to celebrate the new Versace Étoile De La Mer sunglasses collection in Paris, France during Couture Fashion Week.

The editor-in-chief of American Vogue wore a Tom Ford Fall 2011 dress.

My guess would’ve been that her brown floral print pleated dress was worn with her favourite Manolo Blahnik kitten heels, because she’s wearing her favourite beaded antique Georgian collet necklace – the two accessories seem to go hand-in-hand – but on this occasion she teamed the with tan boots.

I love the violet velvet sash worn by the model, but Anna’s look vastly improved without it.

What do you think?

Anna Wintour In Celine – Atelier Versace Spring 2012 Presentation

Anna Wintour joined Diane Kruger and Cameron Diaz in Paris this morning for the Atelier Versace Spring 2012 presentation.

The editor-in-chief of American Vogue has already got her hands on the latest Pre-Fall 2012 collection like so many lucky celebs.

She wore a digital print shirt dress which she teamed with a white belt and a fur coat from the same collection.

Shades, black tights and brown knee-high boots completed the look.

Whilst I share Anna’s love of prints, I find this particular look visually unappealing from head-to-toe.

Does anyone else notice the darker roots and lighter tips of her trademark bob?
