Esprit Dior Tokyo 2015 Front Row

Esprit Dior Tokyo 2015 Front Row

A trio of Dior-outfitted darlings showed up for the Esprit Dior Tokyo 2015 Fashion Show at Ryogoku Kokugikan on Thursday (December 11) in Japan. However, their looks couldn’t have been more different.

Hailee Steinfeld: The starlet donned a Christian Dior Spring 2014 Couture embroidered, off-white silk cocoon-shaped dress with patent Dior pumps. Worn with nude makeup and a slick updo, the look follows Hailee’s sophisticated yet sweet style. Yet the hemline fell a few centimetres too short and the overall effect was too precious for my liking. You may remember that Angelababy wore a similar dress.

Audrey Tautou: The French star wore a Christian Dior grey wool embroidered coat with a Dior black wool top and cropped black pants, all accessorized with Dior T-bar heels and a mini Dior “Bar” bag. I’m not a fan of the shrunken silhouette of the coat or its gaping front.

Crystal Kay: Bringing a shock of colour to the front row, the Japanese recording artist stood out in a Christian Dior Fall 2014 orange silk dress worn with a Dior bright blue wool coat and a lemon-yellow Dior clutch. The contrasting hues surprisingly all worked together, yet it was the embellished nude Dior heels that really didn’t match here.

Hailee Steinfeld In David Koma – 2014 GQ Men Of The Year Party

Hailee Steinfeld In David Koma - 2014 GQ Men Of The Year Party

Hailee Steinfeld attended the 2014 GQ Men Of The Year party held at the Chateau Marmont on Thursday (December 4) in Los Angeles, California.

The actress opted for a David Koma Fall 2014 black pencil dress – a suave portrayal of the feminine form with its slim-fitting silhouette.

Elevating the simple LBD to new heights, this piece features a leather-lined high neckline, which I would’ve loved seeing highlighted more had Hailee worn her hair up.

With her silver toe cap pumps disappearing into the black carpet, I feel like the look needs one more element to bring it alive.

Elie Saab Private Dinner Party #ElieSaabLA

Elie Saab Private Dinner Party #ElieSaabLA

Elie Saab hosted an event in LA on Thursday (November 13), finally getting a chance to meet all those ladies who he helps secure best-dressed status whenever they wear his gowns.

Ashley Madekwe: The gorgeous actress was by far my favourite at this event, wearing a teal look from the Spring 2015 collection styled with a cream Elie Saab clutch. It’s a typically chic offering, easy, effortless, tailored to perfection, with plenty of feminine appeal. I’m crushing on her new bangs too. This is a BDOTW contender if ever I saw one.

Lily Collins: The lady of the hour must have been Lily Collins, who had a breathtaking turn on the red carpet a few weeks ago wearing an Elie Saab ombre Couture gown which I’m pretty confident will be top of many BDOTY lists. Going for something less dramatic on this occasion, the actress wore an uber-chic short jumpsuit from the Spring 2015 collection spliced with a lace sleeve and ruffled detail, which she styled with a black Elie Saab bag and Louboutins. No Lily Collins look would be complete without a bold lip.

Hailee Steinfeld In Monique Lhuillier – ‘The Homesman’ AFI FEST 2014 Premiere

Hailee Steinfeld In Monique Lhuillier -  'The Homesman' AFI FEST 2014 Premiere

Hailee Steinfeld attended the AFI FEST 2014 ‘The Homesman’ premiere held at the Dolby Theatre on Tuesday (November 11) in Hollywood, California.

The actress wore a Monique Lhuillier Spring 2015 frock.

Following a few dresses by the red carpet designer which have failed to ignite my senses, this strapless purple dress with a tea-length brocade floral full skirt is a delight to behold, in both colour and design.

Especially when styled so effortlessly with nude sandals and stormy eye makeup in a shade of purple to complement the dress.

Hailee’s style has always been very consistent, full of girlish charm yet maintaining a high level of sophistication, and this look is the perfect embodiment of that fact.

Topshop Topman New York City Flagship Opening Dinner Party

Topshop Topman New York City Flagship Opening Dinner

Topshop and Topman hosted a dinner party to celebrate their new New York City 5th Avenue flagship store held at Grand Central Terminal on Tuesday (November 4) in New York City, inviting a host of celebs with the glaring omission of Ashley Madekwe and Demi Lovato.

Beyonce Knowles: Following the announcement of a Beyonce/Topshop 50-50 partnership to create a sportswear brand, the singer was no doubt top of the invite list. Giving her new shorter hairstyle a red carpet debut, the singer wore a Topshop flocked sequin bodycon dress which hugged her bootylicious bod. The dress may have been high street, but the jewels were high end courtesy of Lorraine Schwartz.

Ciara: As you know, the decline in Ciara’s style has been a bitter pill to swallow; however, on this occasion I am buying what she’s selling. This rugged laidback b-girl style consisting of a simple black top and Topshop leather look dungrees sees her back on track. Laden with a selection of rings, leather buckled boots and smoky eyes, lets pray it’s onwards and upwards from here on out.

Cara Delevingne: It may be black again, but it’s yet another super hot look for the model. Putting the L in LBD, this Topshop Exclusive mini packs a mighty punch with its halter neckline and gold detailing down the sides.

Michael Kors Celebrates The Launch Of Claiborne Swanson Frank’s ‘Young Hollywood’ Portrait Book

Michael Kors Claiborne Swanson Frank's 'Young Hollywood'

The Michael Kors launch of Claiborne Swanson Frank’s ‘Young Hollywood’ portrait book took place on Thursday (October 2) in Beverly Hills, California.

Hailee Steinfeld: The young star, who was just in Paris for the Miu Miu Spring 2015 show, wore a pretty white lace Michael Kors Resort 2015 dress. I love the tan-coloured accessories, which complemented the lining of her sheer dress, and the contrasting fuchsia lip adding a punchy flourish to her look.

Emmy Rossum: Giving us a sultry vixen look, the ‘Shameless’ actress ensured that all eyes were on her wearing a Michael Kors Resort 2015 plunging chiffon frock with a tiered ruffle skirt. Vamping up the look with kohl-rimmed eyes, a purple MICHAEL Michael Kors ‘Elsie’ clutch added a pop of colour, with her embellished Louboutins adding a touch of sparkle.

Julianne Hough: I keep going back and forth with Julianne’s look. On the one hand I love her Michael Kors Resort 2015 printed cropped suit, but both the matching clutch and brooch detail feel like overkill. I am grateful she didn’t go one step further and wear the matching printed pumps.
