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.

Clemence Poesy In Nina Ricci – Sidaction Gala Dinner 2012

Clemence Poesy joined an A-list crowd of gorgeous fashionista’s including Diane Kruger and Vanessa Paradis in Paris, France last night for the Sidaction Gala Dinner 2012.

The French actress wore a Nina Ricci Pre-Fall 2012 dress.

Her velvet black dress is very simple with subtle embellishments and rope detailing along the neckline and sleeves.

This uber chic look was styled with a Nina Ricci Spring 2012 clutch with a jewelled clasp and gold criss-cross pumps.

A simple updo with bangs framing her face and a pink lip colour completed her look.

Who Wore Chanel Better? Saoirse Ronan or Clemence Poesy

When Saoirse Ronan attended the New York screening of her movie ‘Hanna’ back in April, she wore a Chanel Pre-Fall 2011 dress with Jimmy Choo ‘Zone’ silver strappy sandals.

Her multi-coloured metallic polka-dot halter dress had an exquisite bejeweled neckline and was also accented with an embellished waistband.

Clemence Poesy wore the same dress to the Chanel Spring 2012 presentation during Paris Fashion Week exactly 6 months later.

The French actress swapped the embellished waistband for a velvet one.

Black Miu Miu suede peep-toes and a silver clutch completed her look.

Clemence wins for me.

I much prefer the silhouette of her dress with the velvet waistband and I think the overall fit is better on her.
