Who Wore Chanel Better…Keira Knightley or Astrid Berges-Frisbey?

Who Wore Chanel Better Keira Knightley or Astrid Berges-Frisbey

Keira Knightley wore a vintage Chanel navy dress with white trims including bow detailing to the Los Angeles premiere of ‘Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit’ back in January.

While hardly an exciting choice for an LA premiere, this ladylike look did suit Keira to a tee.

Fellow Chanel ambassador Astrid Berges-Frisbey wore the same dress during Deauville American Film Festival in September for the ‘I Origins’ Photocall.

Sadly, her styling fails to impress. The shoes give the look a matronly feel, the necklace overcooks the look and I am missing the second bow at the waist.

Keira wins this for her more favourable styling.

Chanel Spring 2015 Front Row

chanel spring 2015

Karl Lagerfeld presented Chanel’s Spring 2015 collection during Paris Fashion Week on Tuesday (September 30) yesterday morning.

Elisa Sednaoui: The model brought some colour to the front row wearing a Chanel Resort 2015 ensemble with a distinct laidback vibe, which, as expected, she makes look chic and effortless.

Alexa Chung: As you know, Alexa has been impressing me of late with her red carpet choices, and I expected the same from this event; sadly, I was totally underwhelmed. It’s almost like no effort was put into this at all. The whole look is too boxy and not to my liking. She can do better, especially at Chanel.

Poppy Delevingne: The model/socialite also went down the easy breezy route, selecting a Chanel Resort 2015 red and white romper styled with gold sandals and a red Chanel bag. The look is effortless and chic and, most importantly, looks modern and elegant. She’s a great Chanel ambassador.

Astrid Berges-Frisbey In Chanel – Deauville American Film Festival

Astrid Berges-Frisbey In Chanel - Deauville American Film Festival

Astrid Berges-Frisbey has made several stylish appearances on the red carpet during Deauville American Film Festival in France this week, with all of her looks courtesy of Chanel.
This comes as no surprise as the French beauty has been an ambassador of the brand for quite some time; unlike Keira Knightley, who will wear Valentino here and Simone Rocha there, Astrid stays fiercely committed to Chanel.

‘Before I Go To Sleep’ Premiere: Going for a more laidback, yet still dressy approach, the actress wore a simple white tee with a textured leather skirt, dialling the look down from the runway to make it her own, which worked in her favour. While I will mark her down for mixing her metals and carrying a shoulder bag when a clutch would’ve elevated the chicness of this look, she is always a class act on the red carpet.

‘I Origins’ Photocall: For her second look, she wore a navy and white dress which, despite the cute bow, still had a touch of schoolmarm to it. This was further compounded with the lace-up brogues and 40s updo. You may remember that fellow Chanel ambassador Keira Knightley wore this same dress back in January this year, with a lot more success methinks.

‘The November Man’ Premiere: Yesterday evening the actress dazzled in a Chanel Pre-Fall 2014 ballet-inspired black tulle gown rendered with gold star sequin embroidery throughout. Playing up the romantic mood of the look she teased her hair into a loose braid, accenting a complementary gold heart-shaped headband with Chanel pearls draped around her neck. Of the three looks this has to be my favourite as I’m swept away by the fairytale vibe, although I do find myself wanting to swap her shoes with Look 1.

Astrid Bergès-Frisbey joined Brit Marling at the ‘I Origins’ screening held at the Sunshine Landmark on Thursday (July 10) in New York City.

The Franco-Spanish actress and Chanel ambassador kept it simple and oh-so-very chic wearing a black silk dress with a step hem from Chanel’s Resort 2014 collection.

Accessorizing with a metal and strass necklace and belt, with a selection of Chanel Fine Jewelry including an ‘Etoile Filante’ ring, she completed her look with blue suede shoes.

Astrid Berges-Frisbey In Chanel – Deauville Film Festival Premieres & Closing Ceremony

Astrid Berges-Frisbey In Chanel - Deauville Film Festival Premieres & Closing Ceremony

If you were checking in this weekend, you’ll know that both Venice and Deauville Film Festival came to a close.

Astrid Berges-Frisbey, one of the Chanel ambassadors, attended both the ‘Killing Season’ premiere and the ‘Snowpierce’ premiere which closed the Deauville Film Festival.

‘Killing Season’ premiere: On Friday, she kept it very casual and laidback wearing a Chanel Fall 2013 look featuring a black tweed skirt with a fine-knit sweater, with Chanel grey-and-black pumps completing her look. Even though I respect her decision not to go all out as it wasn’t her premiere, this effort falls well below par for my liking.

‘Snowpierce’ premiere: Which is why I am delighted she had a second chance to make an impression at the ‘Snowpierce’ premiere, where she donned an enchanting Chanel Pre-Fall 2013 off-white wool-lace gown, which is a perfect look for the transitional season. Usually her purposely messy tresses bother me, but they add a lot of character to the look on this occasion.

What is to be appreciated here is how each look has been stripped back and made more wearable from the runway version.

Astrid Berges-Frisbey In Chanel Couture – ‘Only God Forgives’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Astrid Berges-Frisbey In Chanel Couture -  'Only God Forgives' Cannes Film Festival Premiere

We haven’t seen many above the knee dresses this Cannes Film Festival, however, Astrid Berges-Frisbey decided to buck the trend whilst attending the ‘Only God Forgives’ premiere at the Palais des Festivals this evening.

The French actress, who pretty much exclusively wears Chanel, wore a look from the brand’s Spring 2013 Couture collection.

Her white off-the-shoulder dress with a black lace overlay was styled with a red Chanel ‘Lego’ clutch, which has been a hit with celebrities since it was presented in the Spring 2013 ready-to-wear collection.

Chanel jewels and a matte red lip completed her look.

Does anyone else think that this would’ve been prettier as a gown?
