Gucci Resort 2016 Front Row

Gucci Resort 2016 Front Row

Gucci presented their Resort 2016 collection in New York City on Thursday (June 4) where the sidewalk of West 22nd Street became a runway.

Dakota Johnson: The actress’ Gucci Fall 2015 dress easily meets the style quotient of elegance with its lace formation and whimsy red ribbon detail which matched her bold lip colour. I can’t extend my love to her Gucci black leather loafers, but I must admit they do add some character to the look. Dakota carried the Gucci ‘Dionysus’ shoulder bag which proved to be a popular choice at this event.

Gia Coppola: The director opted to borrow from the boys, wearing a taupe blouse and rust-coloured trousers which was presented during the Mens Fall 2015 collection. This be the key to explain the oversized nature of the look. Gia also styled her look with the Gucci loafers and a Gucci ‘Dionysus’ shoulder beige suede bag.

Miraslava Duma: The Russian editor was by far my favourite of the bunch, and that wasn’t all down to her dainty footwear choice. I love how her Gucci Fall 2015 iridescent peach zig zag lurex dress with candy pink fur cuffs strikes the perfect balance between whimsy and modest primness.

Dakota Johnson In Chanel Couture – 2015 Met Gala

Dakota Johnson In Chanel Couture - 2015 Met Gala

Dakota Johnson attended the ‘China: Through the Looking Glass’ 2015 Met Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday (May 4).

Flaunting her newly shorn bob, the ’50 Shades of Grey’ actress mirrored a glitzy disco ball in her Chanel Fall 2013 Couture sculpted, embellished minidress, which bore little resemblance to its original runway entrance.

She styled the frock with Chanel Fine Jewelry earrings and the Chanel limited edition Matryoshka bag from the Paris-Moscow Pre-Fall 2009 collection.

I think she may have shown up to the wrong party.

Chanel Paris-Salzburg 2014/15 Metiers d’Art Collection New York Fashion Show

CHANEL Paris-Salzburg 2014 15  new york

Bold names filled the front row of the Chanel Paris-Salzburg 2014/15 Metiers d’Art Collection at the Park Avenue Armory in New York City on Tuesday (March 31), where the collection of stars naturally all wore their Chanel head-to-toe best to watch the Austrian-inspired designs take to the runway.

Dakota Johnson: The ’50 Shades of Grey’ star continued to break outside her black-and-white-color shell in a warmly neutral Chanel Spring 2014 Couture dress with tonal button detailing. The strength of this look was in the silhouette that played with proportion in the cropped jacket and sleeves and defined waist. Sophisticatedly subtle with an edge, the look was styled with a classic black Chanel bag and tough-chic shoe boots.

Helen Lasichanh and Pharrell Williams: The power couple were well-coordinated; she in a characteristic, cropped Chanel jacket in multi-colour tweed mixed with the urban appeal of a sporty-luxe pair of gold grid shorts. Black tights, biker boots, and a white shoulder bag completed the split-personality look that somehow worked for Helen. As the face of the Paris-Salzburg 2014/15 collection, Pharrell obliged in regal style, rocking out a double-breasted, military-inspired coat with long white shorts and a captain’s hat. It was a performance-ready look, so it was only fitting that he later took the stage with Cara Delevingne to sing ‘CC The World.’

Christian Dior Fall 2015 Front Row

Christian Dior Fall 2015 Front Row

Earlier today (March 6) Christian Dior presented its Fall 2015 collection during Paris Fashion Week with a front row which didn’t included the usual suspects.

Dakota Johnson: Fresh from her promo tour for ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’, the actress who has been flitting between black and white red carpet looks settled for black on this occasion. I love how the off-the-shoulder style provides a fresh, modern-cool slant for this beautifully tailored tuxedo-inspired jumpsuit with a flattering, sophisticated silhouette. The pink cuff is a head scratcher, but the rest of the styling is perfectly complementary.

Hailee Steinfeld: I didn’t recognise Hailee in this Christian Dior Pre-Fall 2015 look. In fact I thought this was Kendall Jenner. The young actress is growing up fast; ditching girlie dresses for a more grown up look which still maintains a youthful flare. Aside from the out-of-place white clutch, I covet this look from head to toe, including that frosty pink lip.

Lorde: The singer added a backpack to her modern, minimalist Pre-Fall 2015 look which ordinarily I would frown at, but she made it work adding her own brand of cool to the look.

Dakota Johnson In Saint Laurent – 2015 Oscars

Dakota Johnson In Saint Laurent - 2015 Oscars

Dakota Johnson captured many a stare on the red carpet of the 2015 Oscars, hosted at the Dolby Theatre on Sunday (February 22) in Hollywood, California.

Finally breaking her black and white sartorial streak, the ’50 Shades of Grey’ starlet couldn’t have picked a more ravishing way to do so.

Her Saint Laurent embellished red column gown was a revelation that was still in keeping with her simple, unpretentious style, just taken up a few notches.

In addition to the bold colour, the power of the dress was in the asymmetric shoulder embellishment, structural bodice, and a thigh-high slit at the side to fulfill her characteristic, subtle sultry appeal.

Without a hint of try-hard, she balanced the jeweled detail of the dress with a Forevermark diamonds cuff on the opposing wrist, finishing the look with a simple ponytail and matching red lipstick.
