Burberry Brings London To Shanghai

Burberry Shanghai 1

Burberry celebrated the launch of their new Shanghai flagship store by bringing London to Shanghai on Thursday (April 24).

Guests, including Burberry family members Cara Delevingne, Suki Waterhouse, Jamie Campbell Bower, Angelababy and Gwei Lun-Mei, took a journey celebrating the Burberry worlds of Britishness, heritage, music and fashion.

Suki Waterhouse: The British model wore a Burberry Prorsum Pre-Fall 2014 romantic, feminine black lace design made sultry by the side slit.

Cara Delevingne: Working a part-boyish, part-feminine look, the model wore a borrowed-from-the-boys cream shirt with a few buttons undone and a sheer crochet skirt, styled with a Burberry clutch and simple black pumps.

Carina Lau In Ralph & Russo Couture – 33rd Hong Kong Film Awards

Carina Lau In Ralph & Russo Couture - 33rd Hong Kong Film Awards

Carina Lau joined a host of stars on the red carpet for the 33rd Hong Kong Film Awards on Sunday (April 9) in Hong Kong.

Wearing her third look from Ralph & Russo’s Spring 2014 Couture collection, this is, I have to say, is my least favourite.

I loved the piece on the runway, however, in reality I’m not a fan of the sheer embellished trousers on the 48-year-old actress.

With regards to the styling, those Christian Louboutin glitter shoes, which I can’t get on board with for any look, somewhat cheapen this Couture look.

Dior Haute Couture Spring 2014 Hong Kong Show

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.

Dior Haute Couture Spring 2014 Hong Kong Show

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.

Carina Lau In Ralph & Russo – 8th Asian Film Awards

Carina Lau In Ralph & Russo - 8th Asian Film Awards

Carina Lau attended The 8th Asian Film Awards on Thursday (March 27) in Macau, China.

The actress can always be relied upon to bring us a breathtaking, dramatic look, and that was most evident in this Ralph & Russo Spring 2014 Couture design.

Made from the most delicate lace, the shimmering red one-sleeved gown with a sassy side slit was emboldened with a satin rosette detail on the bodice.

Rather than overwhelm, the petite star took on this spectacular piece opting for subtle makeup and swept-up hair to ensure nothing detracted from this work of art.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Lupita Nyong’o In Christian Dior Couture & Carina Lau In Ralph & Russo

Best Dressed Of The Week - Lupita Nyong'o In Christian Dior Couture & Carina Lau In Ralph & Russo

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.

Burberry Prorsum Fall 2014 Womenswear Show

Burberry Prorsum Fall 2014 Womenswear Show

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.
