Caroline Sieber Wears The Same Chanel Dress To Royal Ascot & Chanel’s Fall 2012 Couture Show

There once was a time when wearing the same thing twice was a major fashion faux pas.

But thanks to Anna Wintour who is likely to wear a Prada or Oscar de la Renta dress twice or thrice in quick secession, much like Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, those rules no longer apply.

Despite that, I was surprised to see stylist Caroline Sieber wearing the same Chanel dress within two weeks.

Sporting a black-and-white rose and feather-accented fascinator, she attended Royal Ascot in England wearing her Chanel dress with Louis Vuitton toe-cap pumps and a grey Chanel bag.

She gave the dress a second run out this week when she attended the Chanel Fall 2012 Couture show during Paris Fashion Week.

Keeping the sunshine off her fair skin, she opted for a sun hat on this occasion.

A nude clutch and matching suede ankle-strap peep-toes accessorized her look.

With the jewelled detail around the neckline of her dress, I’m surprised she opted to wear a necklace with this dress.

I much prefer the first look. The sun hat and nude heels don’t work at all for me. I’m quite disappointed by the second look to be honest.

Christopher Kane Resort 2013 On Moda Operandi

Most of the attendees for the Christian Dior Fall 2012 presentation of course wore Dior – even high-street loving Olivia Palermo.

The one person, aside from Donatella Versace and Anna Wintour, who didn’t wear Dior was Caroline Sieber.

She opted to wear a Christopher Kane pink sheer, print and pleated pelmet dress from the Resort 2013 collection, which she styled with black strappy sandals.

You will be delighted to know that you can pre-order this gorgeous dress from ModaOperandi right now.

The trunkshow for Christopher Kane, which started today, ends on July 10 so you have just 5 days to select your favourite pieces.

You have a wide selection ranging from floral-print tracksuits and black cracked leather jackets to ladylike lace, pleated and floral dresses to choose from.

The fashion-savvy Caroline picked the best piece, but my second favourite look is the printed princess dress.

Will a real princess select this look? She does favour British designers after all.

Chanel’s The Little Black Jacket Event

Karl Lagerfeld hosted Chanel’s The Little Black Jacket Event at the Swiss Institute in New York City yesterday evening, inviting a host of celebrities.

Lily Collins: The young actress wore an ivory look from Chanel’s Pre-Fall 2012 collection. This is most definitely something new for Lily. A sleeveless shirt was styled with a draped skirt. That extra hanging piece is really jarring and gives the skirt a diaper feel, which is a shame. I am also not crazy about the shoe choice, but I love the hair and makeup. I’m glad she opted to step out of her comfort zone.

Rinko Kikuchi: The Asian actress was one of the few who opted for a bright colour at this event. I love this teal chiffon dress and the glitter two-tone Chanel bag. The toe-cap Chanel pumps add an interesting contrast, much like her punky hairdo.

Leigh Lezark: No surprises that the DJ opted for the most daring look of this event. Her Spring 2012 look consisted of a black leather jacket paired with pearlized leather peach-coloured shorts.

Caroline Sieber In Christopher Kane – A Celebration Of The Arts

Last week Caroline Sieber attended A Celebration of the Arts at the Royal Academy of Arts in London.

The stylist wore a Christopher Kane ensemble inspired by the designer’s Spring 2012 collection.

Her bespoke look consisted of a hand-embroidered jewel chainmail sleeveless top with a matching skirt.

From the close-up you can see how divine the detailing is. I can imagine that it weighed a ton.

Louis Vuitton accessories perfected the look. Caroline added a mother-of-pearl striped miniaudiere and two-tone grey-and-chocolate bow-accented ostrich pumps.

Caroline Sieber In Alessandra Rich – Soiree Chopard ‘Mystery Party’

Caroline Sieber joined Erin Wasson on the red carpet last night for the Soiree Chopard ‘Mystery Party’ during Cannes Film Festival.

The stylist wore an Alessandra Rich Spring 2012 dress.

Her blue micro paillette column dress features an open back with long polka dot ribbons.

This is a cute, unexpected twist to a seductive evening look.

A black satin clutch, matching pumps and Chopard jewels provided the finishing touches.

It’s a shame that the stylist wasn’t more creative with her accessories.

You can buy Caroline’s Alessandra Rich gown without the open back and bow accents from Net-A-Porter.com.

2011 British Fashion Awards Red Carpet Up

Here are the rest of the stars who attended the 2011 British Fashion Awards.

Kristen McMenamy: The American model wore an ice-white Alexander McQueen Fall 2011 organza pearl embroidered dress to go with her ice-white hair.  Her matching McQueen accessories included a filigree skull clutch, python boots and fur scarf.

Stella McCartney: The designer was, of course, in a look from her recent Spring 2012 collection. Her printed jumpsuit epitomizes her chic, laidback style of dressing. Iron-straight hair and black sandals provided the finishing touches.

Caroline Sieber: Like Alexa Chung, the stylist also wore a look from the Christopher Kane Spring 2012 collection. Her iridescent plunging floral-print mini dress was unimaginatively paired with black pumps.
