Charlotte Le Bon In Christian Dior – ‘La Promesse’ Paris Premiere

Charlotte Le Bon stepped out at the ‘La Promesse’ Paris premiere on Tuesday (November 21).

Christian Dior has been a fixture on the red carpet with countless celebrities donning the brand’s popular sheer dress with logo briefs and bra.

The French Canadian actress went in a different direction, teaming a Dior black silk bustier dress with a checkered wool jacket and Dior boots.

I love the fun, youthful feel the ensemble has with the jacket worn off her shoulders and the playful volume in the skirt.

Had it been a more formal affair, I would have said this is something better suited to a press conference. However, this was actually a more casual premiere so I think the separates were appropriate.

Paris Fashion Week ‘All-Denim’ Trend

Denim—in its many forms—is an eternally classic trend. But, Paris Fashion Week saw a number of darlings take their blues to the next level with head-to-toe looks.

And, what can we say, they certainly have good jeans, with this trio of unique Canadian tuxedos serving as proof.

At the Irving Penn exhibition private viewing, Charlotte Le Bon put her Christian Dior Fall 2017 denim to work for her with a work-wear aesthetic that took on casual-chic proportions.

Speaking of proportions, Bianca Brandolini d’Adda maximized hers at the Valentino Spring 2018 show with her Valentino Resort 2018 two-tone denim outfit. Though it also capitalized on the baggy and distressed trends, the end result was a cool-girl look done right.

When Erika Boldrin hit the streets of Paris, all eyes were on her in this oversized Balenciaga asymmetrical denim jacket that was so artfully askance that it even drew attention away from her vibrant accessories including a Loewe ‘Puzzle’ bag. I love how she partially tucked in the jacket to heighten the effect.

Irving Penn Exhibition Private Viewing Hosted by Vogue

A private viewing, hosted by Vogue, for the Irving Penn exhibition at the Grand Palais was held on Sunday (October 1) during Paris Fashion Week.

Adwoa Aboah: Taking a break from walking the runways at Paris Fashion Week, Adwoa posed in a Richard Quinn Spring 2018 look that offered an invigorating, happy mix of ditzy florals. You would think with so many bold, competing prints that this would translate as disjointed. But, on the contrary, I loved this look on Adwoa, and I also credit its success to her minimal approach to the styling, with a black sandal and red pout all she needed. Flower power, indeed.

Kylie Minogue: I think it’s safe to say that Kylie put this Alice McCall ‘More Than A Woman’ fringe gown to work for her—as it was made to be spun around. As fun as it was, I was a bit tassel fatigued and the muted, mauve-pink colour wasn’t my favourite for the vibrancy of the entertainer, but she attempted to bring a splash of vividness via her lipstick.

Dita von Teese: With a look that riffed on the field-of-poppies print from the Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2017 Couture collection, Dita maximized proportions with this look. I have mixed feelings on the balloon sleeves, as they might be lumped into a costume-y circus category. But, the colours were striking in contrast to the black pencil skirt.

Front Row @ Christian Dior Spring 2018

As could be expected, the Christian Dior Spring 2018 fashion show brought together a number of beautiful femmes to celebrate the new collection during Paris Fashion Week on Tuesday (September 26).

Natalia Vodianova: While we’ve seen the signature ‘ChristianDior’ straps on dresses before, I loved the beaded variation employed on this Dior orange feather dress that delivered the best of both worlds between whimsy and elegance. Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Janice’ black suede corset booties and a black velvet ‘Le Coeur de Dior’ bag rounded out the look with an edgy-Victorian, fall spirit.

Emily Ratajkowski: Opting to not wear Dior, Emily donned a Brock Collection Resort 2018 dress that walked the line between romantic softness and seduction with its corsetry bodice and thigh-high slit. The look was styled with Altuzarra D’Orsay canvas pumps.

Alexa Chung: The writing was on the walls—or the sweater and skirt—with this Christian Dior ‘Lascaux’ print ensemble that was inspired by the Paleolithic cave paintings in Lascaux, France. She also wore Dior black booties and a black glazed calfskin ‘C’est Dior’ flap bag to complete the artsy, casually sophisticated statement.

Charlotte Le Bon In Christian Dior – Deauville American Film Festival Closing Ceremony

After a series of appearances at the 43rd Deauville American Film Festival, Charlotte Le Bon rounded out her run at the closing ceremony on Saturday (September 9) in Deauville, France.

She’s worn Christian Dior exclusively throughout the festival, but I believe she may have saved the best for last in this Dior black wool and cashmere dress.

I love the playful simplicity yet sophisticatedly chic nature of the belted mini dress, which she enhanced with her high ponytail.

A Dior ‘J’Adior’ black clutch and Dior over-the-knee boots in black suede embellished with golden CD initials completed the look.

Charlotte Le Bon In Christian Dior – ‘The Promise’ Deauville American Film Festival Premiere

While many stars have been at the Venice Film Festival, Charlotte Le Bon has been frequenting the red carpets of the 43rd Deauville American Film Festival in France.

After attending the opening ceremony in Christian Dior, she continued with another look from the designer at the premiere of ‘The Promise’ on Sunday (September 3).

This Dior white wool and silk suit fuses the standard menswear-inspired separates with a distinct youthful femininity in its cropped proportions, which she accented with a long Dior black leather belt and Dior black suede pumps.

There were some of you who weren’t fans of her prior patchwork-effect dress, so how does this 180-turn fare?
