Red Carpet Fashion Awards

I hope you all keep up with my tweets and Instagram pictures from the MAC & Carine Roitfeld ‘Le Bal’ celebrations which took place yesterday at the Hotel Salomon de Rothschild during Paris Fashion Week.

One of the first to arrive was the lovely Karlie Kloss, my hero, who looked gorgeous wearing an Alexander Wang Spring 2013 fresh-off-the-runway look.

She got the ‘smoky eye’ memo, as did Poppy Delevingne, who smouldered on the red carpet wearing an Emilio Pucci black long-sleeve dress with a gold dragon from the recent Spring 2013 collection.

Carine Roitfeld arrived wearing signature all black Givenchy avec smoky eyes, the inspiration for the whole evening.

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.

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.

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.

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.
