Sofia Coppola & Louis Vuitton Celebrate The New SC Bag Launch

Sofia Coppola & Louis Vuitton Celebrate The New SC Bag Launch

Celebs gathered to celebrate the new SC bag launch for Le Bon Marche and Louis Vuitton during Paris Fashion Week yesterday evening.

Dakota Fanning: The actress wore an LV Fall 2013 champagne-coloured slip dress with a lace hem, which she tried to prevent from looking like a nightie by adding a long brown coat to her look. It didn’t work. Louis Vuitton ‘Dramatic’ sandals and a SC for Louis Vuitton clutch.

Elle Fanning: Dakota’s younger sister had more success with her plaid LV Fall 2013 spaghetti-strap dress with an embellished hem. Beach waves and LV sandals completed her look.

Miranda Kerr: Carrying her new favourite bag, the LV ‘Capucines’ tote, the model wore a black LV dress which looks like it was returned from the ‘Mad Men’ costume department. While I do like the 60s secretary dress and the necklace, bag and pumps, I find the hairstyle ages her somewhat.

Sofia Coppola: The lady of the hour styled her all-white LV look with her SC for Louis Vuitton clutch, cuffs and tri-colour sandals. Effortless and chic as always.

Datoka Fanning In Chanel – Front Row @ Chanel Cruise 2014

Elle Fanning In Chanel - Front Row @ Chanel Cruise 2014

Can you believe that the Resort 2014 collections are already here?

Karl Lagerfeld unveiled his Cruise 2014 collection for Chanel yesterday in Singapore, which was attended by Dakota Fanning.

The actress, who was decked out in head-to-toe Chanel, wore a slightly modified version of a Fall 2013 look which took to the runway.

She opted to wear her strapless A-line dress without the sheer vest, plus she opted to wear her chain-accented ankle boots sans leather leg-warmers, and swapped the chunky Chanel jewels for a simple bracelet and oversized ring, with an obligatory Chanel chain-accented bag completing the look.

As always, the hair and makeup is extremely lacklustre.

Do you prefer Elle’s or the runway styling?

Dramatic Eyes At The Met Gala: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

Dramatic Eyes At The Met Gala The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

Dramatic eyes were a big trend at last night’s Met Gala, and while some were absolutely stunning, others completely missed the mark. Everyone might not agree with me here, but I really feel that you can do punk and look attractive while doing it. Case in point, these three lovely ladies:

Good:
Hailee Steinfeld’s eyes were total showstoppers last night. Her green and black cat-eyed look was edgy but beautiful, and totally punk-esque.

Another real winner was the always-flawless Diane Kruger. Her silvery gray smokey eyes almost had an ombré effect, with the lightest silver at the inner corners and the darkest at the outer corners. Gorgeous!

And finally, we have Nina Dobrev, who sported an intensely winged upper lid and a silver-lined lower lid. Very high-fashion punk!

Bad:
You have to give Elle Fanning props for having fun, but her winged electric blue and pink eyeshadow is more little girl playing dress-up than fashion’s biggest night.

As for January Jones, her look reads far more alien warrior than punk! The disconnected triangular shape of her liner is quite harsh, and coupled with the grayed out eyebrows, she looks a little creepy.

Ugly:
Ginnifer Goodwin is always a fashion and beauty risk-taker, but this one simply did not pay off. The heavy black shadow from lash to brow, along with the heavily shaded brow may be daring, but it’s also unfortunate. The only place this look belongs is on a raccoon.

Elle Fanning In Rodarte – 2013 Met Gala

Elle Fanning In Rodarte - 2013 Met Gala

Unlike her sister Dakota, who took a subtle approach to the night’s red carpet, Elle Fanning made quite a style statement at the Met Gala.

While her Rodarte tie-died swirl gown is decidedly more psychedelic than punk, it’s fun and youthful and a great choice for a 15-year-old on a red carpet.

And then there’s her makeup. The over-the-top winged navy and red eye shadow is the perfect match to the gown, and I definitely give her props for having fun with the theme, but is that actually punk? I’m not sure, but once again, you can’t fault a teenager for having a little fun on a night like tonight!

Are you liking Elle’s dramatic look, or is it too left field?

Elle Fanning In Lanvin – 24th Annual GLAAD Media Awards

Elle Fanning In Lanvin - Glaad Media Awards

Elle Fanning hit the red carpet on Saturday for the 24th Annual GLAAD Media Awards, held at the JW Marriott Los Angeles at L.A. Live.

The up-and-coming starlet once again showed us her mature fashion sense, selecting a Lanvin gown for the occasion.

Even though the wispy layers of this gown and her tiara headband lent a precious princess vibe to the look, I wasn’t quite as enchanted as I could have been.

The nude-blush hue of the dress, offset with the harsh black sash, wasn’t my favourite for Elle, and the colour revealed every rumple and wrinkle in the fabric.

It all actually seemed a bit safe for the young teen who is no stranger to high-concept, ripped-from-the-runway ensembles mixed with a good dose of crazy shoes.

But with her flushed complexion and white-blonde locks, she still managed to look angelic.

Elle Fanning In Rochas – 28th Santa Barbara International Film Festival’s Virtuoso Award Ceremony

Elle Fanning In Rochas - 28th Santa Barbara International Film Festival’s Virtuoso Award Ceremony

Elle Fanning joined Eddie Redmayne at the 28th Santa Barbara International Film Festival’s Virtuoso Award Ceremony held at the Arlington Theatre in Santa Barbara, California yesterday.

The teen star wore a Rochas Spring 2013 white brocade belted dress which featured slanted pockets.

Ripping the runway look, Elle also donned the white leather boxing boots but opted out of wearing the sunnies and silk headband.

Many of you went on record to say that Elle has the most undesirable footwear collection to hit the red carpet, so I’m sure you will agree that she’s worn much worse than these leather lace-up boots.

I wanna say I dislike them on principle, but I think they keep the look interesting.

White pumps or those Prada platforms she loves so much would’ve been too predictable.

Elle Fanning In Chanel – 2013 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards

Elle Fanning In Chanel - 2013 Critics' Choice Movie AwardsElle Fanning is somewhat of a fashion prodigy, and she showed us why at the 2013 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards, hosted last night at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California.

This up-and-coming starlet and Best Dressed Teen of 2012 selected head-to-toe Chanel Spring 2013 for her big night, where she was nominated for Best Young Actress in ‘Ginger & Rosa.’

She didn’t win the evening’s trophy, but she continued her style winning streak with the strapless column gown that featured quirky floral appliqués that only she could pull off. Likewise, her crazy and clunky silver platform clogs would normally be a no-go for anyone else, but they worked for her.

Good thing she left the overly dramatic collar choker necklace on the runway, though.

She even had us swooning over her playful pink eyeliner. Of course, her beaming, youthful grin is this girl’s best accoutrement.

Elle always leaves us in awe; we can’t wait to see what she puts on next.

Elle Fanning In Opening Ceremony & Dakota Fanning In Nina Ricci – 2013 J.Estina SS Presentation

Elle Fanning In Opening Ceremony & Dakota Fanning In Nina Ricci

Elle and Dakota Fanning attended a promotional event for the 2013 J.Estina SS presentation at the Shilla Hotel in Seoul, South Korea earlier today.

It’s rare for us to see the sisters on the red carpet together, so I had no idea that Elle towered over her older sister Dakota, who has reverted back to her natural blonde hue.

Dressed in cute mini dresses, Elle wore a pretty floral Opening Ceremony Resort 2013 frock with a stand-out blue python embellished clutch and a nude pair of Miu Miu platform bow-front peep-toes.

Elle’s choice of footwear could which could explain why she’s that much taller than Dakota as she wore metallic silver Miu Miu loafers with her ethereal white lace Nina Ricci Resort 2011 sleeveless dress.

Like Elle, Dakota carried a contrasting clutch which stood out against her simple look.

Both look cute, fresh and youthful, but I’m captivated by that gorgeous floral print on Elle’s dress and her soft subtle wavy tresses.
