Front Row @ Gucci Spring 2018

As we might expect, the front row at the Gucci Spring 2018 show on Wednesday (September 20) during Milan Fashion Week was awash in a head-turning mix of bold prints and bright patterns from the label.

Dakota Johnson:
Starting the front row off with a bang, Dakota easily had one of my favoured looks in this colourful, pleated dress. I love the retro-forward, geometric print and the alluringly artsy mix of hues. The dragon-embroidered bag wouldn’t have been my first choice, though, for this look as it seemed so disparate from the mod mood.

Salma Hayek: Salma’s dress stood out for its prominent lack of pattern. But, it still charmed with the modern-Victorian lace detail and girlie bow at the waist that was very much in keeping with the star’s style.

Li Yuchun/Chris Lee: Never one to do fashion by halves, the entertainer presented a full-on fashion experience here. The cape may have been ‘Blind for Love,’ but I for one, don’t know where to look first between the Gucci signature print T-shirt, intricately patterned skirt, knee socks, and booties—not to mention the ear muffs. This was a performance piece, if nothing else.

Kering Women In Motion Cannes Dinner

The Kering Women in Motion Dinner was held during the 2017 Cannes Film Festival on Sunday (May 21), where Gucci outfitted a range of glamorous girls in attendance.

Charlotte Casiraghi: While the nude lining of this Gucci gown gave me pause, I was more relieved that there was a lining. Plus, the bright, verdant array of flowers offered a chipper and whimsically romantic note to the dress.

Salma Hayek Pinault: I could barely believe my eyes upon seeing Salma rock a pink-hair alter-ego. And, I couldn’t help but love the playful, va-va-voom vibe she was giving in this top-to-toe Gucci look. Maybe pastel-pink blondies really do have more fun.

Li Yuchun: Rocking a clashing array of plaid and prints, only Li could pull off the eclecticism of this Gucci Pre-Fall 2017 ensemble. However, she still couldn’t make me warm up to the neon-green, bow-topped booties.

2017 Billboard Music Awards Red Carpet Roundup

There were more looks that took to the red carpet at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday (May 21) in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Nicole Scherzinger: With an overt display of cleavage and ruffles, this Maria Lucia Hohan skin-tone gown was a bit of a dated eyeful.

Lorde: This red Givenchy design was a striking way to wear sheer without flashing the panties. Giuseppe Zanotti shoes completed the look.

Lea Michele: Despite its see-through mentality, this David Koma perforated dress conveyed chic, modern elegance on Lea, especially when styled with a twisted top knot and Cesare Paciotti shoes.

Chopard, Vanity Fair and HBO Cannes Parties

A Vanity Fair and HBO dinner party was held on Saturday (May 20) as part of the 2017 Cannes Film Festival, with a group of glamorous gals in attendance.

Julianne Moore: While the actress did stick to a darker colour palette, she brought a dose of whimsical fun in this Chanel Resort 2017 embellished gown with multi-hued, feathered pouf sleeves. Exchanging the pink sash for a black one along with a sleek bun and Chopard jewels ensured plenty of her signature modern elegance was brought to the table.

Chanel Resort 2018 Front Row

Designer Karl Lagerfeld brought the storied glories of ancient Greece to Paris as inspiration for his Chanel Resort 2018 show on Wednesday (May 3). A group of Chanel-donning darlings looked on from the front row.

Keira Knightley: Keira kept things sophisticated but very subdued in her lace overlay dress topped off with classic Chanel tweed. However, the look was begging for some element of allure—and the lacklustre olive shoes didn’t fit the bill.

Liu Shishi: How adorable was Liu in this sweater dress styled with a diaphanous blouse and sporty-chic lace-up heels. This is how Chanel does schoolgirl charm.

Charlotte Casiraghi: I loved this rich shade of navy blue on Charlotte, even if the flash wasn’t so kind to her bra underneath. However, the suede boots placed the look firmly in a fall mood.

Charlotte Casiraghi In Giambattista Valli – Montblanc & UNICEF Gala Dinner

Charlotte Casiraghi brought a touch of regal sophistication to the Montblanc & UNICEF gala dinner on Monday (April 3) in New York City.

The princess channelled an ethereal evening look wearing a Giambattista Valli white lace dress detailed with dainty black bows for an extra feminine flourish.

I’m probably in the minority when I say that I find Charlotte’s style very hit and miss, however, on this occasion I think this looks classically elegant.
