Best Dressed Of The Week – Sarah Jessica Parker In Mary Katrantzou & Emma Watson In Christian Dior

Best Dressed Of The Week - Sarah Jessica Parker In Mary Katrantzou & Emma Watson In Christian Dior

This week was very strong fashion-wise, so I am not surprised that there was a deadlock.

You couldn’t decide between Sarah Jessica Parker and Emma Watson.

Sarah for her unique, modern take on style at the New York Ballet with her embroidered Mary Katrantzou gown; and Emma who continues to leave us in awe, presenting an event-appropriate, sophisticated, chic look in Christian Dior.

I went for Sarah for the reason above and for not over-accessorizing.

Emma Watson In Christian Dior & BOSS – HeForShe Campaign Launch & After-Party

Emma Watson In Christian Dior & BOSS - HeForShe Campaign Launch & After-Party

Emma Watson attended two events on Saturday (September 20) for the HeForShe campaign held at the United Nations in New York City following her appointment as UN Women Goodwill Ambassador.

If I were Emma, when picking out my looks for these events I would’ve been thinking, what would fellow UN ambassador Angelina Jolie do? Tailored, conservative, muted colours and non-revealing.

Emma did all those things, adding chic into the equation.

HeForShe Campaign Launch: The first look was a Dior Resort 2015 heather-grey silk coat dress accented with a Dior silver-metal belt. The asymmetrical hemline adds a modern feel to the classic look, with the impeccable tailoring giving the piece a couture-like feel. Simple black Jimmy Choo ‘Abel’ pumps and Eva Fehren jewels completed her look.

HeForShe VIP After-Party: It may have been a party, but Emma’s look stayed strictly conservative. At first glance this is a classic BOSS LBD; however, the modern elements included a sheer back and skirt for adding subtle allure. The lip was a deep shade of red, with an M2Malletier green clutch also adding a pop of colour. The look was completed with Jimmy Choo ‘Abel’ pumps and a Jennifer Fisher gold choker.

I love how she managed to keep both looks interesting while still event appropriate.

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.
