Ciara In Emilio Pucci – Elton John AIDS Foundation’s 12th Annual ‘An Enduring Vision’ Benefit Gala

Ciara In Emilio Pucci - Elton John AIDS Foundation’s 12th Annual ‘An Enduring Vision’ Benefit Gala

Ciara joined Allison Williams at the Elton John AIDS Foundation’s 12th annual ‘An Enduring Vision’ benefit gala at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City on Tuesday evening.

The songstress took a wild turn with her nearly neon-yellow Emilio Pucci Spring 2014 hooded dress that was cut low on top and high on the bottom.

The tasseled, plunging mini got an extra wallop of brash attitude via the styling, with the edgy Ciara choosing a chain-link choker necklace and black Christian Louboutin ‘Monicarina’ thigh-high leather boots.

I’m trying to imagine this look with more sophisticated shoes and accessories, but I’m still not convinced it could have turned into a gala-ready dress.

Lily Collins In MinkPink & Topshop and Ciara In Opening Ceremony – Hakkasan Restaurant

Lily Collins In MinkPink & Topshop and Ciara In Opening Ceremony - Hakkasan Restaurant

Lily Collins and Ciara were spotted having dinner at Hakkasan restaurant in Beverly Hills on Thursday evening.

If you are slightly surprised by this pairing, don’t be because it looks like they bonded over their love for Givenchy when seated front row at the Spring 2014 show during Paris Fashion Week earlier this month.

Lily Collins: The young starlet wore a black spaghetti-strapped Topshop jumpsuit with a V-neckline styled with a white faux-fur Minkpink jacket, black ankle-strap sandals and a pop of red via her clutch and lip colour.

Ciara: Did Ciara call ahead? Because she also worked a red-and-black look, wearing an Opening Ceremony ‘Lucky Rose’ knit sweater dress with rose appliqués styled with black leather Christian Louboutin Mado lace-up booties and a black Givenchy clutch. Like Lily, she sported a centre-parted ‘do; however, she opted for a neutral lip colour.

Ciara In Doriane Van Overeem & Topshop – Out In Paris

Ciara In Doriane Van Overeem & Topshop - Out In Paris

With Paris Fashion Week over, Ciara took time to indulge in some retail therapy, hitting up the Balmain boutique in Paris, France on Wednesday.

Joining the burgeoning vinyl trend, the singer donned a pink vinyl skirt from Topshop, which she paired with a fluffy mohair Doriane Van Overeem pink sweater which looks very cosy.
White accessories including quirky Miu Miu ‘Rasoir’ sunglasses and Gianvito Rossi pumps completed her look.

As you know, I’m not the biggest fan of white pumps, so I take them on a case-by-case basis. On this occasion they perfect the look.

Do you agree or will you never get on board with the white pumps trend?

Ciara In Valentino – Front Row @ Valentino Spring 2014

Ciara In Valentino - Front Row @ Valentino Spring 2014

Ciara’s first love in fashion is Givenchy, but she took time out to check out what Valentino had in store for us for Spring 2014, taking a front-row seat alongside an adoring Miroslava Duma during Paris Fashion Week yesterday afternoon.

The singer went glam, opting for a Valentino Fall 2013 black gown featuring a white lace bodice with leather inserts at the sides, and tonal lattice-beaded embellishment throughout.

When it comes to the singer wearing gowns, we’re used to seeing her in something sheer, feathered and with a thigh-high slit, so this demure look is rather refreshing.

A sleek bun would’ve perfected this look for me.

Front Row @ Paris Fashion Week

Front Row @ Paris Fashion Week

Here is a brief look at some of the lovely ladies who have been perched on the front row during Paris Fashion Week.

Ciara @ Givenchy: The singer, who has been both a muse for and a fan of the house of Givenchy for quite some time, donned a Fall 2013 look including a Givenchy abstract print sweater and a sexy Givenchy sheer Muslin skirt with a flounced hem.

Olivia Palermo @ Chloe: The socialite, who has been wearing a lot more high end than high street this season, donned a Chloe Fall 2013 navy blouse with polka-dot sheer panels with a light-blue Chloe Pre-Fall 2013 skirt styled with tan boots and a tan belt.

Lily Collins @ Givenchy: Opting to go goth with her ghostly makeup and berry lip colour, Lily donned the Givenchy Bambi print neoprene sweatshirt synonymous with the Fall 2013 collection as a mini dress. The Bambi-collage-print Givenchy clutch was a touch unimaginative, with black sandals completing the look.

Who Wore Givenchy Couture Better…Mariacarla Boscono or Ciara?

Who Wore Givenchy Couture Better Mariacarla Boscono or Ciara

Model Mariacarla Boscono attended the ‘Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty’ Costume Institute Gala held at The Metropolitan Museum Of Art back in 2011 with designer Riccardo Tisci, wearing a look from Givenchy’s Fall 2010 Couture collection.

Cut to last month, and Ciara donned the same sheer second-skin gown with dazzling embellishments and a feather-accented skirt to the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards.

With both opting for minimal makeup and wavy central-parted locks, I eventually went with Ciara as the details really pop against her skin tone.

Front Row @ NYFW Weekend Catch Up

Front Row @ NYFW Weekend Catch Up

Here’s a quick catch up of the front row who caught my eye during New York Fashion Week this weekend.

Ciara @ Prabal Gurung: The singer wore a pretty Prabal Gurung embroidered angular insert dress with a flared silhouette styled with bondage boots courtesy of Casadei, which were presented during the designer’s Fall 2013 collection.

Solange Knowles @ Alexander Wang: What’s not to love about Solange’s outfit? The colour, the quirky glasses, the Wang Resort 2014 skirt, that bag and those sexy sandals…? Perhaps it shouldn’t, but it ALL works.

Rihanna @ Opening Ceremony: It’s been a while since we saw Rihanna front row at NYFW, as she tends to skip the shows and head to the after-parties. On Sunday she was front and centre at Opening Ceremony wearing a grey Zac Posen satin floral dress with Underground ‘Wulfrun’ creepers with a Lynn Ban choker. A part of me wants to say it’s ridiculous to pair such a pretty dress with creepers, but I have to say she sells it to me, as per.
