Chanel Spring 2013 Couture Front Row

Chanel Spring 2013 Couture Front RowA diverse coterie of starlets held court at the Chanel Spring 2013 Couture presentation at the Grand Palais in Paris, including Clémence Poésy, Diane Kruger, Hailee Steinfeld and Rita Ora who all donned their own interpretations of the designer.

Karl Lagerfeld’s Couture runway was a study in gothic-tinged enchantment, but his front-row pretties were less coordinated in their kaleidoscope of looks that showed the many sides of Chanel.

Clémence Posey: The French actress kept things sleek and simple, albeit a bit one-note, in her grey tartan wool coat from Pre-Fall 2013. A black and blue Chanel bag (and a bright red pout) spiced up this look.

Diane Kruger: The German actress is a fashion girl, so it follows that her Spring 2013 black-and-white bustier dress would be ripped straight from the runway. But rather than the funky choker necklace and silver platforms, she went for a French schoolgirl vibe with a beret, a Chanel cross-body bag, Brian Atwood ‘David’ black suede boots and a side braid.

Hailee Steinfeld: The teen star also took the Pre-Fall 2013 collection for a spin with her multicolour cardigan, edged up with a black leather skirt and black cap. With Chanel’s neon yellow resin ‘Boy’ bag, this look ended up being a strange conglomeration of trends; it’s a wonder the young actress didn’t finish it off with a more dynamic shoe.

Rita Ora: The singer played the ultimate lady in red (and white) with her Spring 2013 cropped-sleeve, leather jacket and matching lipstick. But when worn over a lackluster white dress that scraped the floor and with a pair of heavy Alexander Wang leather lace up boots, this sassy songstress’s look may have pushed the boundaries of good fashion into sloppy territory.

Clemence Poesy In Louis Vuitton – Louis Vuitton Fashion Night In Shanghai

On day two of Louis Vuitton’s Paris-Shanghai extravaganza, Clemence Poésy was seated front row alongside Fan Bingbing for the Fall 2012 presentation held in Shanghai, China.

On this occasion the French beauty wore a Louis Vuitton Resort 2013 mini dress.

Her brocade mini dress with a flared skirt and pocket details was accessorized with the same stunning embellished collar we saw in the lookbook.

Along with the collar, her gold bow-front Louis Vuitton peep-toes keep the look young and fresh.

A fresh faced look provided the finishing touch.

The French actress styled a Louis Vuitton Resort 2013 lace tri-colour coat into a coat/dress for this special occasion.

Her trademark no-fuss look was accessorized with black Mary Janes and a clutch by another French designer, Olympia Le-Tan.

Purposely messy tresses and light makeup for a fresh face look provided the finishing touches.

Front Row @ Chanel Fall 2012 Couture

As always, it was a star-studded front row for the Chanel Fall 2013 Couture presentation on Tuesday morning.

Diane Kruger: I wasn’t too enamoured with Diane’s look. The blue Chanel Resort 2013 dress (her second from this collection) isn’t the issue, it’s the styling. The styling tells me she’s still on vacation mode. The baker boy hat and Christian Louboutin ‘Pigalle’ spike flats don’t work with this dress for me.

Poppy Delevigne: I much preferred Poppy’s look. Whilst considerably more laidback wearing a Chanel ensemble featuring a white shirt and denim skirt, the styling is perfected from her round sunnies to her shimmering Givenchy gold glitter sandals.

Alexa Chung: As always, I have a strong case of déjà vu when it comes to the British presenter. I’m sure many of you will agree that you feel like you’ve seen this look before….several times. Always in back-to-school mode, Alexa did opt for some interesting accessories on this occasion. Fur-trimmed Giuseppe Zanotti black strappy sandals and a mini Chanel patent quilted shoulder bag completed the look.

Leslie Mann: Usually I’m Leslie’s biggest fan, but I failed to get excited about her Chanel look which features an ivory pleated blouse which she teamed with a black tweed high-waisted pencil skirt. Her ensemble was very sophisticated but a tad boring, even with the addition of the red Chanel quilted bag.

Clemence Poesy: The French actress looked chic, as always, giving us an ‘I got dressed in 5 mins’ effortless look. Wearing a Chanel black embroidered and cap-sleeve dress with an A-line skirt and a cut-out back, she styled her look with a silver Chanel glitter clutch and black buckled Oxfords. Natural looking makeup and wavy tresses provided the finishing touches.

Milla Jovovich: This Chanel Resort 2013 dress is so very pretty, but feels too girlie for Milla. This look should’ve been saved for Elle Fanning.

Front Row @ Burberry Fall 2012

The front row of the Burberry Prorsum Fall 2012 show was jam packed with celebrities from all over the world, proving that Burberry is truly a global brand loved the world over.

The first to arrive were the Asian actresses.

Vivian Hsu: The actress struck a serious pose wearing a snakeskin Burberry Prorsum Pre-Fall 2012 coat. Blue tights and brown suede shearling-lined ankle boots completed her look.

‘Girls Generation': Thankfully, Seohyun, Yoona and Tiffany gave us some interesting shoes to drool over. I also need to thank them for giving us three very different looks from the Burberry Prorsum Spring 2012 collection. Seohyn wore a tribal-print coat, Yoona kept her look sweet wearing an emerald-green keyhole dress with a pleated bib, and Tiffany opted for a sexy ruched mini-print dress which is considerably shorter to the dress presented on the runway.
