Front Row @ Armani Privé Fall 2012

The Armani Privé Fall 2012 show drew a sophisticated set of A-List celebs, as you would expect.

Leslie Mann: The actress, who attended the Chanel show earlier in the day, did a complete 180. Looking forgettable at Chanel, she wowed at Armani. With her hair swept to one side, the glamazon looked outstanding wearing an Armani LBD with a handkerchief hemline.

Zoe Saldana: It’s always a delight to see Zoe during fashion week. Looking impeccable from head-to-toe, the actress wore a shimmering coral Giorgio Armani Fall 2012 halter dress which she styled with black accessories. I have already picked out my Prive wish list for her.

Shailene Woodley: The ‘Descendants’ actress attended her first Couture runway show. She kept her look simple wearing an Armani Resort 2013 ivory ¾-sleeve jacket with black pants.

2010 Shanghai Film Festival – Part II

For the closing ceremony of the Shanghai Film Festival Michelle Yeoh wore a stunning orange one shoulder Atelier Versace Fall 2007 gown.

This was my favourite of her two looks during this festival.

I love the colour, the detail and the gold accessories. Definitely BDOTW worthy.

French actress Isabelle Huppert looked effortless wearing a white plunging striped gown which she paired with an ivory clutch.

Claire Danes also opted for a bright colour wearing a red halter gown with a mermaid hem.

Usually Claire opted for neutral colours so this pop of colour is most welcome.

08.09.09 Premiere

Venice Film Festival Catch Up

“South Of The Border” Premiere

Finally someone wears a Phoebe Philo’s Celine Resort 2010 look on the red carpet.

Granted the collection doesn’t have gowns or cute cocktail dresses, but I always pictured someone like Chloe Sevigny in the pieces.

Tilda Swinton walked the red carpet with Director Luca Guadagnino at this daytime premiere wearing a camel jacket, white top, black slightly cropped pants and strappy heels as per the runway.

I LOVE the look.

Forget Chloe, only Tilda can pull this off. On anyone else the jacket may have looked too boxy.

“White Material” Premiere

Speaking of class acts, Isabelle Huppert was head-to-clutch-to-toe in YSL.

My Best Dressed Cannes 2009 judge proves that her Cannes run was not a fluke, as she looks elegant wearing a YSL satin tank dress paired with biscotto satin slingback sandals and an emerald satin and sequined Muse clutch.

“Capitalism: A Love Story” Premiere

Tilda Swinton next look was a midnight blue Lanvin Pre-Fall 2009 gathered kimono sleeve dress.

Tilda appears to be a fan of Alber Elbaz designs as she has worn Lanvin on the red carpet many times before, especially on big occasions.

The actress pairs her dress with a Lanvin amber resin necklace and Lanvin suede pumps with metal mirrored heels.

I was just about to say that Italian TV presenter Simona Ventura had done a 180 from her first appearance at this festival when she wore an unfortunateDSquared gown, when I saw the twins.

I would’ve given her 10 out of 10 had she supported the twins.

At this point she gets a 7.

“The Informant!” Premiere

Luciana Damon is usually in the shadow of her famous husband Matt, but on this occasion it’s all about her in her stunning dusky rose gown.

I love unexpected way her gown sparkles with the dark stones sprinkled all over her gown.

Bad Lieutenant: Part Of Call New Orleans

I know many of you just can’t bring yourselves to say anything nice about Paris Hilton, but you have to give credit were credit is due.

I love this look.

She’s seems to love to channel old Hollywood for her red carpet looks lately.

Her hair is elegantly swept to the side in her plunging sequined Jenny Packham gown.

“Accident” Premiere

The Christian Dior Spring 2008 white gown Han Yuqin wore is slightly modified from the runway version, as it has less embellishments and plunge isn’t as deep but it’s still absolutely outstanding gown.

Michelle Ye paired her punky ‘do with a Dolce & Gabbana dress strapless black sequin gown with a rosette detail on the hip.

Kylie Minogue wore to the same dress to the Brit Awards.

“Between Two Worlds” Premiere

Huang Lu’s Moshino Fall 2009 gown has a silver-tone safety pin-embellished ruched centre detail.

The gown is made even more dramatic with a chiffon overlay.

I adore this gown.

Who Wore Louis Vuitton Better? Isabelle Huppert or Estelle

Not that many other people other than Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were noticed on the red carpet at the “Inglourious Basterds” Premiere during Cannes Film Festival, but Isabelle Huppert attend the premiere.

The fashion rebel of the Cannes jury members wore a black liquid tar futuristic Louis Vuitton Fall 2009 dress, with a black blazer, sheer tights and platform heels from the same collection.

Estelle wore the same dress recently with pink Alexander McQueen heels to the “Louis Vuitton Celebrates The 40th Anniversary Of The Lunar Landing” event in New York.

As much as I dislike her tights, I prefer Isabelle’s overall look. She took an edgy piece no one would have dared to think she would wear and make it look very chic and sophisticated.

Front Row At Armani Privé Fall 2009

Is Megan Fox serious? Like really?

She’s at a Couture show for Christ sake, can’t she at least pretend like she deserves to be there.

She should be taking acting advice from the great Cate Blanchett – who’s doing her best to ignore her – because lets face it pouting her way through “Transformers” doesn’t make one a good actress.

*All hail the Queen is back*

Cate Blanchett hasn’t been on the red carpet in a long while as she currently lives in Australia.

Cate and Giorgio Armani have a perfect working relationship.  He creates stunning pieces I’m sure with her in mind, which is why the star was the guest of honour at this show.

She didn’t wear any of the pieces on my wish list, but this Armani Privé Spring 2009 floral sheath dress with an oriental vibe is simply stunning on her and she wears it with such grace.

We are still and will never be worthy *bows*

Kasia Smutniak is the face of Giorgio Armani’s new fragrance ‘Idole d’Armani’.

Giorgio chose Kasia because she has a fresh and modern appeal which combines true feminine sensuality.  She is a rare beauty.

The stunning model wore a floral print Armani Privé Spring 2009 jacket, with a black skirt as she posed alongside the designer.

She wears one Armani Privé dress and this grants Megan Fox front row access and a seat next to the great Cate Blanchett?

Seriously what is this world coming to?

Her dove grey one-shoulder Armani Privé dress is gorgeous I won’t take that away from her, but the make-up once again lets her down.

She really needs to sack her make-up artist because she’s gone from orange to yellow now she’s just too pale.

Elsa Pataky always presents herself well. She’s always graceful, elegant and well dressed and knows a thing or two about Couture gowns so she has earned her spot in the front row.

Her bangs were a bit too blunt during Cannes but they have grown out to a more versatile length.

Her Giorgio Armani Pre-Fall 2009 LBD is simple but so so elegant. I love the silhouette it gives her and the silver details on the shoulders which she complements with a silver clutch.

My hero worship for Dasha Zhukova started off very high at the beginning of the week, but her stock is falling quite sharply.

She looks cute in her Thakoon Resort 2009 printed dress, but it’s much for fitting for an informal event not an Armani Privé show.

I almost missed this because I didn’t recognise her.

Katie Grand would have stood out. I wouldn’t have missed Katie Grand.

Isabelle Huppert also decided to dress down for the occasion considering she was the couture queen at Cannes Film Festival.

Très disappointing.

2009 Cannes Film Festival – “Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky” Premiere

Much better.

I hadn’t been a fan of Kerry Washington’s two previous looks, but she sure knows how to make me fall in love again.

She arrived on the red carpet wearing a flesh coloured Zuhair Murad Spring 2009 gown, covered in navy blue floral embellishments and a velvet navy ribbon.

We’ve seen this silhouette a lot at Cannes, but her floor-sweeping fishtail tulle train added to the overall glamour of the look.

Her bouffant was bouncy with beautiful tumbling curls, whilst her make-up kept light.

Myleene Klass wore a very similar version of this gown last week.

Charlotte Gainsbourg won the best actress prize at the Cannes Film Festival last night for her role as a grieving mother in the film ‘Antichrist’.

She arrived at this premiere with her husband wearing a gold studded Balenciaga Resort 2009 shortened dress, which she wore with black strappy Balenciaga heels.

I love her carefree approach to fashion.

Asia Argento has had a fantastic run on the red carpet at Cannes, and it seems her preferred collections were from Roberto Cavalli and Armani Privé.

She picked another outstanding Armani Privé Spring 2009 gown for this premiere.

It had a sculptural detail on the shoulder and the skirt, which then trails off into a stunning train.

Her heels compliment the gown, and I love the print which lines inside of this magnificent gown.

Georgina Chapman wore a satin-faced silk organza dress from her Marchesa Spring 2009 collection, which is architecturally pleated to dramatic effect but it looks slightly flat whilst standing so close too her husband.

Satin Louboutin’s complete the look.

Isabelle Huppert and Asia, will have to fight it out for the honour of ‘Queen of Couture’ at this years Cannes Film Festival. Both have worn such magnificent pieces.

Isabelle has worn some cutting edge and risqué pieces, but on this occasion she opted for a Spring 2009 Chanel Couture gown which was so elegant, delicate, and sophisticated.

Zhang Ziyi looked like a fairytale princess in this wonderful blush pink paillette covered gown, which was cut very low at the back.

Her gown was paired with a silver clutch, and she may have been inspired Paris Hilton as she wore a jeweled hair accessory.

When I saw Robin Wright Penn wearing this shimmering sheer black gown, the first person to come to mind was Sharon Stone.

That’s not a good thing.

Shu Qi’s blue one-shouldered Roberto Cavalli gown was embellished around waist, and on the shoulder strap with black crystals.

Her sapphire blue earrings and ring, complimented her gown beautifully.

Anna Mouglalis wore an eye-catching green satin gown, with an exaggerating bow, as she smoldered for the cameras.
