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.

Ciara In Givenchy Couture – 2013 MTV Video Music Awards #VMAs

Ciara In Givenchy Couture - 2013 MTV Video Music Awards #VMAs

Ciara looked stunning on the red carpet at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on Sunday evening.

It’s no surprise that she’s wearing Givenchy Couture, selecting a Fall 2010 second skin gloved-gown accented with strategically placed crystal embroidery and feathers at the hemline.

While I have a slight feeling of déjà vu – Florence Welch at the 2011 Grammys immediately springs to mind – it takes nothing away from how beautiful the singer looks.

One of my favourites of the night.

You may remember that Mariacarla Boscono wore this same gown to the 2011 Met Gala.

Ciara In Zara – NBC studios

Ciara In Zara - NBC studios

Ciara was spotted leaving the NBC studios in New York City, where she was promoting her new self-titled album.

Debuting a new darker ‘do with blonde streaks, she wore a head-to-toe neutral look composed of a sheer beige pearl-embroidered blouse and a matching skirt, both from Spanish retailer Zara.

Both pieces are from the Spring 2013 collection, so if you are now lusting over these items you may still find them in the sale section of your local Zara store.

Her high-street, high-on-glamour daytime look was styled with beige pumps and a selection of gold rings.

The singer recently showed off her manicure via Instagram, which showed diamond accents under her nails. Maybe this will kick-start a new trend. One I won’t be joining, I should add.
