Emma Watson In Givenchy – Vogue Foundation Gala

Emma Watson In Givenchy - Vogue Foundation Gala

Emma Watson attended the Vogue Foundation Gala during Couture Fashion Week held at the Palais Galliera on Wednesday (July 9) in Paris, France following the Valentino Fall 2014 Couture show.

Working an all-black look again, and working a contemporary look with just the right amount of cool, the British actress opted to man up, wearing a sleek Givenchy suit.

Trimmed with satin lapels, the boxy silhouette was countered with a black patent-leather belt with a black lace bra adding a hint of sex appeal.

Opting for two earrings on this occasion and a selection of rings, she completed her look with a red lip colour, black clutch and black peep-toes.

Valentino Fall 2014 Couture Front Row

Valentino Fall 2014 Couture Front Row Paris

Valentino presented their beautiful Fall 2014 Couture collection at the Hotel Salmon de Rothschild in Paris, France yesterday evening (July 9) during Couture Fashion Week.

Olivia Palermo: The socialite, who has been front and centre at most of the Couture shows, arrived wearing a Valentino Fall 2014 tri-colour white, black and red dress with a standard collar and colour-block skirt, which is the kind of dainty look we would expect from Olivia. We would also expect her to style the look with some interesting accessories, and she didn’t disappoint, carrying a green Valentino Gryphon fringed clutch and donning her favourite Sergio Rossi sandals. You may remember that Emma Stone wore this same dress during her ‘Spider-Man’ 2 promo tour.

Kim Kardashian: It was not a surprise to see Kim in attendance, considering Valentino Garavani opened up his Parisian estate for her and Kanye back in May, allowing them to host their pre-wedding brunch there. Wearing a plunging pale-blue Valentino gown (which I believe is from the Pre-Fall 2014 collection), she kept the styling simple, accessorizing with diamond jewels.

Emma Watson: Clocking up as many front row seats as Nina Dobrev, the British actress wore a Valentino Resort 2015 two-piece macramé lace bralet and high-waist maxi skirt, opting not to wear the white shirt we saw in the look book. I love how she gave this look an edge by donning a BLK DNM black leather jacket. The rest of the styling included red suede pumps, a dark-green M2Malletier Fabricca leather clutch and a single Delfina Delettrez ‘Fishing for Compliments’ pearl earring with two pearls. My girl crush deepens.

Giambattista Valli Fall 2014 Couture Front Row

Giambattista Valli Fall 2014 Couture Front Row

Giambattista Valli presented his Fall 2014 Couture show during Paris Fashion Week on Monday evening (July 7).

Sarah Close: The designer invited YouTube singing sensation Sarah Close to his show after falling for her charms: both beauty and talent. The lucky girl wore a Giambattista Valli Fall 2013 Couture white frock rendered with a blue embroidered bodice and a printed flared skirt. It’s a fairytale dress, perfect for the circumstances and the occasion, which she styled with white satin sandals.

Emma Watson: To close what was a busy day for the British actress, Emma kept it simple in black for this occasion. Wearing a drape-front black Grace blouse and J brand jeans, she styled the look with black pumps and a black bag, with only a touch of magenta to the lip providing a pop of colour. I would’ve died to have seen her wearing one of the dainty dresses from any of the GBV collections, but this is a chic showing nonetheless.

Dior Private Dinner Party

Dior Private Dinner Party

Following Dior’s presentation of their Fall 2014 Haute Couture collection, the FROWers attended a private party to celebrate the occasion in Paris, France.

Jennifer Lawrence: Still sporting the unfavourable makeup from earlier in the day, the actress opted for a super-short Dior bouclé dress enriched with metallic embroidery. Silver Dior pumps, a black clutch and a gold cuff amped up her look.

Marion Cotillard: The French actress let her raspberry mini Dior bag be the focus, selecting a grey and black Dior dress with a black overcoat protecting her from the rain. Only the bag and shoes pique my interest.

Emma Watson: Once again she steals the show, looking uber chic wearing a navy-blue Dior top with a floral-printed skirt from the Resort 2015 collection. A Dior clutch and navy suede Dior pumps accessorized her look, along with gold earrings and a bold red lip.

Who stands out for you here?

Christian Dior Fall 2014 Couture Front Row

Christian Dior Falll 2014 Couture Front Row

Christian Dior presented their Fall 2014 Haute Couture collection this afternoon (July 7) in Paris, France with a host of familiar faces in the front row.

Charlize Theron: The brand’s golden girl shimmered in the front row wearing a metallic-gold short-sleeved mini dress which showcased those gorgeous gams, which were elongated further with nude pumps. Yellow-gold Anita Ko diamond earring completed her look. Glamour in its simplest form.

Marion Cotillard: Of all the Dior ambassadors, the French actress has perhaps worn the brand most consistently. While not every look has been a hit, she is always a delight to watch. On this occasion she wore a Resort 2014 black top with a fold-over detail and printed silk-scarf panel paired with a high-waisted skirt. The styling was kept simple with Dior pumps and a Miss Dior bag, as was the hair and makeup. Anyone else think this look was crying out for a pair of red pumps?

Jennifer Lawrence: Despite going into her second term as a Dior ambassador, she is still the new kid on the block. Like Marion, Jennifer’s selections for Dior haven’t always been so well received, but on this occasion she proves herself a worthy ambassador, wearing a Resort 2014 ‘Noeud Dior’ printed silk-scarf top paired with a white suede high-waisted skirt. J’adore the two-tone black and white accessories, which included pumps with both ankle and asymmetrical straps, a patent-leather clutch, and Dior tribal earrings. We whine about Jennifer often looking too old in her Dior looks, but I’m sure you will agree this look doesn’t age her at all. This is one of my favourite JLaw/Dior looks (although not a fan of the makeup). And thank God her hairstylist realized they were working with a 20-something star and not Hillary Clinton.

Emma Watson In Ralph Lauren – The Royal Marsden Dinner

Emma Watson In Ralph Lauren - The Royal Marsden Dinner

Emma Watson also was in the mix, alongside Zhang Ziyi and Margot Robbie, at the Duke of Cambridge’s Royal Marsden dinner held on Tuesday (May 13) at Windsor Castle in England.

Following suit, she likewise kept the grey theme alive in her Ralph Lauren Fall 2014 ensemble, consisting of a beautifully draped skirt and a structured white button-down shirt.

The juxtaposition of the tailored top with the elegant fluidity of the skirt couldn’t have been more chic, especially when styled with a thin white belt, metallic box Roger Vivier Maxi Boite de Nuit clutch and that dramatic oxblood lip.

This ensemble was a classically effortless interpretation of the runway styling. Do you agree?

Repossi ear cuff, Ana Khour necklace and Monica Vinader ring also accessorized her look.
