With the city scene of Hong Kong as a backdrop, Christian Dior hosted their Spring 2014 Couture fashion show on Wednesday (April 9), inviting along Asian and French stars.
Laetitia Casta: The French actress truly took my breath away wearing a multi-coloured fringed silk dress from Dior Fall 2013 Couture collection which she styled with an architectural metal belt and dual-colour strappy Dior sandals. Hair and makeup were kept simple to ensure her dress was the focus and how could it not be?
Gwei Lun Mei: Working a monotone look, the Asian beauty wore an uber chic minimalist look from Christian Dior’s Pre-Fall 2014 collection including a wool jacket, wide leg trousers and white clutch. I love this look just as much as Laetitia’s. So hip it hurts.
Lupita Nyong’o was your best dressed this week for the Christian Dior Couture gown she wore to the BAFTAs.
As much as I loved the gown and the colour against her skin, there was – much like her SAG Awards Ralph Lauren cape gown – a feeling of déjà vu.
Even without the déjà vu, I would’ve still crowned Carina Lau my favourite in her Ralph & Russo Couture pink cocktail dress, which was far more enticing and original in design. My runner up was Suki, also in Ralph & Russo.
The Burberry Prorsum Fall 2014 fashion show took place during London Fashion Week this afternoon (February 17).
As we’ve come to expect, the hottest ticket in town attracted a lot of celebrity faces, some of whom also attended the menswear show last month. Bradley Cooper didn’t take to the red carpet, but you can see him seated next to Anna Wintour below.
Paloma Faith: After working a summery BDOTY-worthy look for the menswear show, Paloma was in a more Fall-like mood. Wearing pieces from the Pre-Fall 2013 collection including a London landscape printed tee and green jacquard pencil skirt, she wore the same maroon hat she wore for her last red carpet appearance, but it worked much better on this occasion when styled with a matching coat.
Naomie Harris: While the coat-and-open-toe-sandals fashion police may not favour this look, I have to say I’m loving the chic combo of the velvet devore coat with the chartreuse velvet sandal. Did I say love? Yes, LOVE.
Continuing her show-stopping selection of Couture gowns, Carina Lau wowed on the red carpet of the Berlin Film Festival Closing Ceremony yesterday evening (February 15).
The Hong Kong actress wore a simply stunning Ralph & Russo Spring 2014 Couture dusty pink French Chantilly lace cocktail dress draped in silk organza.
Breathtakingly light and crafted so elegantly, the dress was perfect for Carina’s delicate frame.
All Carina needed was a simple shoe, and a gold sandal was a great choice so as not to distract from the oh-so-pretty lace dress. A chic up-do and simple stud earrings were the understated finishing touch.
Carina Lau arrived at the 15th anniversary banquet for the lifestyle magazine, ‘Modern Weekly,’ held in Shanghai, China on Saturday (December 14).
The Hong Kong actress wore a pearl-coloured design from the Giambattista Valli Spring 2013 Couture collection.
A balance of structure and delicacy, the frock featured a netted, embroidered overlay along with an exaggerated cape at the back.
I’m not sold on her styling, though. With the harsher metallic tones radiating from her clutch and peep-toe platform heels, along with a statement necklace that did nothing to complement the dress’s silhouette, this look lost some of its charm.
Perhaps softer makeup tones in blush-nudes and pinks would have helped complete the picture. What do you think?
