Charlotte Gainsbourg In Louis Vuitton - ‘Nymphomaniac Volume I’ New York Screening

Charlotte Gainsbourg joined Emmy Rossum and Stacy Martin for the ‘Nymphomaniac: Volume I’ New York screening at the Museum of Modern Art on Thursday (March 13) in New York City.

Once a fiercely loyal Balenciaga girl, it would appear her allegiance is to all things created by Nicolas Ghesquière.

The French actress wore an exact runway look head to toe from the Louis Vuitton Fall 2014 collection which included a white frill-collar blouse, yellow-and-black V-neck knit vest, vinyl black trousers and tan patent-leather ankle boots.

Few could pull this off, but she’s totally selling this look to me.

Balenciaga’s Creative Director, Nicolas Ghesquière, has forged a powerful bond with Charlotte Gainsbourg.

The French actress and singer is regarded as his muse and she has recently fronted the campaign for Balenciaga’s latest fragrance, l’Essence.

Charlotte is one of the jury members for Berlinale Film Festival, so we shouldn’t be surprised that all her looks so far have been Balenciaga.

On Thursday she joined Jake Gyllenhaal for the Jury Photocall during day one of the 62nd Berlinale Film Festival.

She wore one of my favourite looks from the Balenciaga Spring 2012 collection which included a simple white vest, paired with terracotta pants with an orange pocket.

This is a great look for Charlotte, but I prefer the colour of the runway shoes.

Charlotte Gainsbourg joined Kiki on the red carpet for the “Melancholia” Premiere during the 2011 Cannes Film Festival this evening.

From the sheer dress to the exposed bra this look makes me feel really uncomfortable.

Sorry if that makes me sound like a 50s housewife.

“A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Cure Parkinson’s” Benefit, New York

Whilst trying to keep up with Fashion Week, LeeAnn sent me a note to tell me to make sure I looked at the Dries van Noten Spring 2010 collection.

I’m glad she did because I instantly fell in love with the ethnic prints and the one-sleeved blazers.

I often wondered who would be the first to wear this collection, and that honour went to Julianne Moore.

She looked fabulous in this hard to pull off ensemble.

Her ethnic print wrap dress was paired with a black blazer trimmed with a white strip to complete this unusually chic look.

Granted it won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but I love it.

Wow.

Katharine McPhee blows me away wearing a Marchesa Fall 2009 one shoulder sculpted dress.

I’m even loving the hair with this look.

Either I’m coming down with something or Katharine just hit her first home run.

BDOTW contender.

Alexa Chung opted for a cheap yet chic Topshop studded one-shoulder dress paired with booties.

She arrived wearing a questionable leopard print coat.

‘Late Show With David Letterman’, New York

My first reaction was that I didn’t like Ashley Greene in this Bottega Veneta Resort 2010 striped suit, but after so many great red carpet dresses this look feels refreshing.

It also shows that both Ashley and her stylist are thinking outside the box, and not playing it safe.

My main problem is actually the striped shirt, because the suit is not so bad.

I think I would’ve loved this look if the shirt was a solid colour, or if Ashley had worn the same suit Penelope Cruz wore back in July.

London Evening Standard Theatre Awards, London

Anna Friel loves Antonio Berardi as she has worn his pieces many times before.

Not so many times that she needs an intervention like Leona Lewis does from Vivienne Westwood, but enough to know she appreciates his stunning designs.

The textured dress had an asymmetrical chiffon detail that moved beautifully on the runway.

Black pumps complete the look.

Christmas Illuminations Launch On The Champs-Elysees, Paris

Just last week I was complaining that we haven’t seen enough of Balenciaga’s Fall 2009 collection on the red carpet, and here we have Charlotte Gainsbourg upping the count to make 3 following Carine Roitfeld and Salma Hayek.

The actress arrived at this event wearing one of the printed plunging blouses paired with the lace bandeau, leather pants and peep-toe heels.

Aching cool as always.

“Brothers” New York Screening

For some reason I just can’t fall in love with Natalie Portman wearing this cute Jason Wu Spring 2010 strapless mini dress.

The dress has all the ingredients to make Natalie shine: the ruffles, the colour, the length and the contrasting waist belt, but it gets no love from me and I can’t figure out why.

The actress paired her dress with Aldo purple heels.

Emma Roberts opted for a Miu Miu Resort 2010 summery dress brought down with thick tights.

Navyboot Store Opening, Germany

Monica Cruz hasn’t yet met a Herve Leger bandaged dress she didn’t like.

This is 3 in a row.

Before Cheryl Cole, Cat Deeley was the nations sweetheart.

The TV presenter arrived at this event wearing Givenchy Holly strappy leather heels with a Preen Matt Lightening dress.

If you are thinking the dress looks a bit awkward, that’s because the thick strap on Cat’s right shoulder – as we are looking at it – should be on her left shoulder.

Regardless she still looks fabulous.

Much better.

I hadn’t been a fan of Kerry Washington’s two previous looks, but she sure knows how to make me fall in love again.

She arrived on the red carpet wearing a flesh coloured Zuhair Murad Spring 2009 gown, covered in navy blue floral embellishments and a velvet navy ribbon.

We’ve seen this silhouette a lot at Cannes, but her floor-sweeping fishtail tulle train added to the overall glamour of the look.

Her bouffant was bouncy with beautiful tumbling curls, whilst her make-up kept light.

Myleene Klass wore a very similar version of this gown last week.

Charlotte Gainsbourg won the best actress prize at the Cannes Film Festival last night for her role as a grieving mother in the film ‘Antichrist’.

She arrived at this premiere with her husband wearing a gold studded Balenciaga Resort 2009 shortened dress, which she wore with black strappy Balenciaga heels.

I love her carefree approach to fashion.

Asia Argento has had a fantastic run on the red carpet at Cannes, and it seems her preferred collections were from Roberto Cavalli and Armani Privé.

She picked another outstanding Armani Privé Spring 2009 gown for this premiere.

It had a sculptural detail on the shoulder and the skirt, which then trails off into a stunning train.

Her heels compliment the gown, and I love the print which lines inside of this magnificent gown.

Georgina Chapman wore a satin-faced silk organza dress from her Marchesa Spring 2009 collection, which is architecturally pleated to dramatic effect but it looks slightly flat whilst standing so close too her husband.

Satin Louboutin’s complete the look.

Isabelle Huppert and Asia, will have to fight it out for the honour of ‘Queen of Couture’ at this years Cannes Film Festival. Both have worn such magnificent pieces.

Isabelle has worn some cutting edge and risqué pieces, but on this occasion she opted for a Spring 2009 Chanel Couture gown which was so elegant, delicate, and sophisticated.

Zhang Ziyi looked like a fairytale princess in this wonderful blush pink paillette covered gown, which was cut very low at the back.

Her gown was paired with a silver clutch, and she may have been inspired Paris Hilton as she wore a jeweled hair accessory.

When I saw Robin Wright Penn wearing this shimmering sheer black gown, the first person to come to mind was Sharon Stone.

That’s not a good thing.

Shu Qi’s blue one-shouldered Roberto Cavalli gown was embellished around waist, and on the shoulder strap with black crystals.

Her sapphire blue earrings and ring, complimented her gown beautifully.

Anna Mouglalis wore an eye-catching green satin gown, with an exaggerating bow, as she smoldered for the cameras.

“Antichrist” Premiere

Charlotte Gainsbourg walked the red carpet at her movie premiere last night, looking stunning in a black and white splash print Balenciaga dress, with black strappy Balenciaga heels.

It may not be what you would expect to see on the Cannes red carpet, but this is very much Charlotte’s style, plus she is good friends with the designer Nicolas Ghesquière.

You can give a girl a pretty dress, expensive jewels and lessons on how to pose on the red carpet, but you can’t give her charisma.

Rosanna Arquette has that by the bucket load.

Like Kate Hudson she has a magnetism that draws you in, and I adore her cowl back gold sequin gown.

She’s just oozing sex appeal.

The Weinstein Company Celebrates NINE in Cannes

Marion Cotillard should have worn the runway belt with her Lanvin Spring 2009 dress, her dress has no shape without it.

Yves Saint Laurent cage ankle boots complete her all black look.

Quintessentially Hosts Party for Nowhere Boy At la plage

With t-bar Christian Louboutin heels, Georgina Chapman wore her own black and gold Marchesa embroidered silk dress with a draped chiffon overlay.

Both Miley Cyrus, and Heidi Klum have worn this stunning piece.

“A Night of Hollywood Domino”

I could have loved Paris Hilton in her silver sequin strapless Zuhair Murad Spring 2009 cocktail dress with a dramatic bow front, as it looks soooo gorgeous on the runway.

The problem for me is that Paris over did the accessories.

The accessories are competing with the dress, and the dress should stand alone.

Lily Cole already has incredibly long legs, so it beggars belief why she wore nude heels to elongate her legs even further.

Lily wears the now well worn Alberta Ferretti Spring 2009 taupe flapper dress.

Penelope Cruz wore an ivory John Richmond gown, with silver embellishments. I really wish she had removed her satin Balmain jacket for this photo. I’m dying to see the rest of the dress.

Olivia Palermo leaves me in despair as to why she wore YSL tribute sandals in black, with a pretty floral dress. She works in fashion right?

Malin Ackerman wore a bubble gum pink Versace dress, which has to be one of the most uninspired gowns I have seen at Cannes.

Peaches Geldof went head to toe red, wearing a red satin Dolce & Gabbana strapless bustier dress.

For once I like this look.
