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.

2017 Rose Ball Red Carpet Roundup

The 2017 Rose Ball in Monaco ushered in all-out glamour on Saturday (March 18) in support of the Princess Grace Foundation.

Charlotte Casiraghi
: Fashion royalty herself, Charlotte was stunningly outfitted in a vintage Chanel gown with embroidered sheer black overlay. Perhaps channeling her grandmother Grace Kelly’s classic style, she maintained the beauty of old Hollywood glamour in her glossy finger waves and matte red lip.

Princess Caroline of Hanover
: A striking confection if there ever was one, this Chanel creation was the epitome of elegance-meets-whimsicality. With its frill of exploded ruffles, brooch-clad collar neckline, and mixed bag of swirling prints, this was a look meant to thrill with its full-on fashion extravagance.

Beatrice Borromeo: With a lovely, embellished Alberta Ferretti navy gown, Beatrice’s look was the most subtle of the three. Even so, her necklace was an odd complement to the sheer neckline and the statement earrings. Extravagance is one thing, but these two jewelry pieces simply competed with each other and neither won.

Gucci Dinner In Honour of Alessandro Michele

Gucci Dinner In Honour of Alessandro Michele

Following Gucci’s Spring 2016 fashion show, François-Henri Pinault hosted a dinner party in honour of Alessandro Michele yesterday evening (September 23) in Milan, Italy.

Dakota Johnson: Following her FROW look and with so many interesting options available to her, I was slightly underwhelmed by Dakota’s Gucci Resort 2016 look. The Gucci metallic GG Marmont pumps try to lift the look, but I think the biggest detractor here are the tights.

Salma Hayek: We all know that Salma is at her best when her sex appeal is out to play, so I can’t say I am too enamoured by this Gucci Resort 2016 yellow skirt suit. The whole look read mother of the bride. Bring back sexy Salma.

Alexa Chung: The TV presenters fashion month usually skips Milan, but it would appear that Gucci have taken her under their wing this season, and I can’t say I’m surprised. Alessandro Michele granny-chic, glam-geek, androgynous aesthetic is perfectly suited to her style. On this occasion her Gucci Resort 2016 collection metallic gold pleated skirt provided the glam while her multi-coloured sweater brings out the geek.

Gucci Spring 2016 Front Row

Gucci Spring 2016 Front Row

A group of Gucci-donning pretties were seated front row at the Gucci Spring 2016 show held during Milan Fashion Week on Wednesday (September 23) in Milan, Italy.

Dakota Johnson: This Gucci Fall 2015 frock, accented by a bow collar and bee brooches, saw the ‘Black Mass’ actress exploring the rich colourway of burgundy along with more ruffles and embellishment than we sometimes see from her sleekly simple statements. However, it only proved that this brand of feminine charm works for her just, as well.

Salma Hayek: Her Resort 2016 look likewise had a touch of darlingness with the embroidered sweater serving up a sweet retro sensibility balanced by iconic horsebit-belted skirt. I love the pop of the red leather Gucci GG ‘Marmont’ clutch that plays off the floral patchwork. The massive platform pumps were less successful.

Alexa Chung: While part of me wished to see the full detail of this Resort 2015 vintage-leaning dress and its embellished collar, the other part of me was just as happy about the chicly clean, modern edge that the black coat provided in pairing with the horsebit natural fur Gucci slippers.

‘Carol’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere Red Carpet Roundup

Cannes 1

Here is a roundup of the rest from the ‘Carol’ during the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival on Sunday (May 17) in Cannes, France.

Charlotte Casiraghi: The royal served up one of the few summery looks we’ve seen on this red carpet, wearing a Gucci floral gown designed by Alessandro Michele. As you would expect she presents a perfectly polished graceful look.

Salma Hayek: The actress put on quite a display wearing a magenta hued Gucci gown which fit to perfection. The look couldn’t be more opposite to Charlotte’s, but it’s classic Salma – oozing with sex appeal.
