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.

Carina Lau In Ralph & Russo Couture – Berlin Film Festival Closing Ceremony

Carina Lau In Ralph & Russo Couture - Berlin Film Festival Closing Ceremony

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 In Giambattista Valli Couture – ‘Modern Weekly’ 15th Anniversary Banquet

Carina Lau In Giambattista Valli Couture - 'Modern Weekly' 15th Anniversary BanquetCarina 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?

Carina Lau In Versace – Charity Banquet

Carina Lau In Versace - Charity Banquet

Carina Lau attended a charity banquet on Monday in Hong Kong, China.

After taking my breath away in her Elie Saab Couture gown for the Golden Horse Awards, I can’t say I’m too enamoured by this Versace Fall 2013 dress.

The black one-sleeve dress with a slash detail, patent-leather collar and spiked detail on the shoulder screams glam punk, which for me isn’t in line with the actress’s style.

Give this to Miley or Rihanna and I’m buying it, but on Carina not so much.

Style-fit aside, I don’t like the overall styling starting with the shoes.

Carina Lau In Elie Saab Couture – 50th Golden Horse Awards

Carina Lau In Elie Saab Couture - 50th Golden Horse Awards

Carina Lau rounded out at trio of Elie Saab Couture gowns to take to the red carpet yesterday evening for the 50th Golden Horse Awards, held at Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall in Taipei, Taiwan.

Saving the best Elie Saab Couture gown until last, this silver embellished, taupe long-sleeve gown featuring a scarf neckline which gently falls down her back to meet the train, couldn’t be more beautifully showcased than it is here.

Even those dazzling drop earrings can’t upstage this beautiful gown.

Carina’s red carpet looks have veered on the twee side for most of the year, so this is easily one of her best looks of the year.

Carina Lau In Valentino Couture – Valentino Fashion Show & Store Opening

Carina Lau In Valentino Couture - Valentino Fashion Show & Store Opening

Carina Lau attended both the red-themed Valentino fashion show and the opening of the house’s second largest flagship in the world in Shanghai yesterday.

For the show, she wore a white Valentino Spring 2013 Couture dress with long sheer sleeves and distinct floral appliqué embellishments all over the skirt. Her bridal-esque look didn’t stop there, though; she accessorized with a matching white Valentino bag and pumps, too.

Carina Lau In Valentino – Lane Crawford Flagship-Store Opening Ceremony

Carina Lau In Valentino - Lane Crawford Flagship-Store Opening Ceremony

Carina Lau was feeling very blue while attending the Lane Crawford flagship-store opening ceremony at Shanghai Times Square in China yesterday evening.

The actress wore a head-to-toe look by one of her favourite brands: Valentino.

She wore a long-sleeved Valentino Fall 2013 tunic dress featuring a high round neck, an A-line waist and contrast lace overlay throughout.

I know the majority of you really disliked the black Valentino T-bar pumps made popular during Fashion Month, so I’m guessing the feeling is comparable for the blue pair Carina wore, mimicking the runway look.

She styled her look with a metal clutch, with a simple updo and pink lips providing the finishing touches.

While I love the colour, I find the dress a tad too twee for Carina.
