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.

Front Row @ Erdem Spring 2014

Front Row @ Erdem

London’s It girls took to the front row of Erdem’s Spring 2014 collection to see what lace-accented floral delights the designer had in store for us this time, with one PYT sticking out like a sore thumb.

Alexa Chung: The DJ didn’t appear to get the floral or lace memo, opting for a cosy Topshop knit sweater (which I have in pink) styled with a leather mini skirt, ankle boots and a Burberry Fall 2013 clutch. While she might not have towed the line with the dress code, the look is very much in tune with her style.

Poppy Delevingne: The socialite donned funky crystal-accented DSquared2 shades while wearing a pretty white frock with colourful floral appliqués from Erdem’s Resort 2014 collection which she styled with black pumps. While the footwear wouldn’t have been my first choice, they coordinate well with the black trims on her dress.

Pixie Geldof: I saw the socialite several times yesterday. While she changed her dress for each show – here she’s wearing an Erdem Pre-Fall 2013 floral frock – she did not part with her trusted Dolce & Gabbana animal-print clutch, or her burgundy booties showcased during Christopher Kane’s Fall 2013 collection.

Daisy Lowe: The model channeled her inner Courtney Love, styling her pretty white lace Erdem Resort 2014 frock with workman-like lace-up boots, with black Prada Heritage cat eye sunglasses and a Miu Miu ‘Bowling’ bag completing her look.

Front Row @ Topshop Unique Spring 2014

Topshop Unique

A long line of trendsters turned out for the Topshop Unique Spring 2014 runway, hosted at the Topshop Show Space in London on Sunday, where the FROW head-turners had on their hautest high-low looks.

Kate Moss: The supermodel struck an effortless yet cool-girl note in grey-and-black, leopard-print trousers, paired with a black jacket and heather-grey sweater. Oversized sunglasses, black booties and a blue-ceder Kate Moss for Longchamp clutch popped more attitude into this look.

Ashley Madekwe: Rocking a fire-engine shade of red, the ‘Revenge’ actress continued to make the show rounds in a cozy Topshop Unique beige jacket (which actually photographed more like mint green) and matching Boutique fuzzy jumper thrown over those bold-hued Unique trousers. Minimal makeup and a scraped-back ’do finished off the fiery look.

Ellie Goulding: The British songstress took a tougher approach with a black leather blazer and black crop top, which seemed a bit too intense for her Topshop Boutique baby-blue skirt. Her criss-cross, black-patent Unique shoes brought a heavy edge back.

Daisy Lowe In Louis Vuitton - Benefit Cosmetics Store Launch

After her disastrous look at the GQ Awards, Daisy Lowe was back to her best at the launch of Benefit Cosmetics’ new Carnaby Street boutique in London yesterday evening.

Looking sexy without a hint of trashy, the model wore a Louis Vuitton Fall 2013 grey striped spaghetti-strap dress with a lace trim around the neckline and degrade sequins at the hem.

Accessorizing with LV items, she selected the popular ‘Dramatic’ sandals in pink and the ‘Bijou’ minaudière which continues to be a celeb favourite.

Daisy Lowe In Saint Laurent – GQ Men of the Year Awards

Daisy Lowe In Saint Laurent - GQ Men of the Year Awards

Daisy Lowe took to the red carpet this evening for the GQ Men of the Year Awards held at The Royal Opera House in London.

I have always been a huge fan of the model, who hasn’t conformed to the size 0 model standard, but I kinda find myself looking at her in this Saint Laurent chiffon gown and having one word for her: “NO”.

No, I don’t want to see your underwear, which is on display thanks to that thigh-high slit.

No, this is not sexy. Quite the opposite. Trashy springs to mind.

Her Le Smoking black gown with a plunging neckline and satin lapels was full of gothic elegance when Miriam Yeung wore it earlier this year, but Daisy takes it to a town far beyond Tackyville, USA.

It’s a sad day when one girl can’t turn to the other and say “Love, your knickers are showing”.
