CR Fashion Book Issue 2 Cocktail Party

CR Fashion Book Issue 2 Cocktail Party

Carine Roitfeld launched the CR Fashion Book Issue 2 with a black-tie party held during Paris Fashion Week at the Hotel Shangri-La on Tuesday, to which she invited a host of celebs, including Kate Moss.

Jessica Chastain: The Oscar-nominated actress wore a black Givenchy Fall 2013 draped gown with sheer sleeves, which was accented with a thin black cable belt. The sleek look was styled with a gold clutch and coral lips.

Amanda Seyfried: The Givenchy-loving star wore a head-to-toe Givenchy look. Going against the all-black dress code, she added a light-blue lace blouse to her look, which consisted of a black leather and wool coat and black pencil skirt; she styled the look with Givenchy sandals and a Givenchy Rottweiler clutch.

Jessica Alba: The mum of two, who is becoming something of a front-row regular, followed the all-black rule to a T. Wearing a Valentino one-shoulder LBD with oversized velvet bows, she styled her look with black tights, black pumps and a black manicure. You would think those bows would be overwhelming, but I think Jessica makes this look work.

Paris Fashion Week Front Row Trend: Black and White

Black and White Celebrity Trend

What’s black and white and seated front row at Paris fashion week?

Celebs, of course.

One of the major trends which reigned supreme at the Spring 2013 shows was black and white, ranging from mod 60s looks at Prada and Louis Vuitton, stripes at Marc Jacobs, Dolce & Gabbana and Michael Kors, and classic pieces at Chanel, Ralph Lauren and Saint Laurent, with Alexander Wang, Balmain, Narciso Rodriguez, Victoria Beckham, Jil Sander, and Moschino also sending solid, patterned or striped black-and-white looks down the runway.

The celebs who have championed this trend this week were Nicole Richie, who attended both the Stella McCartney and Givenchy shows in black and white, and Jessica Alba, who also rocked the trend at Stella McCartney and Valentino.

Black and White Celebrity Trend2

Chanel’s front row is one place we shouldn’t be surprised to see celebs showcasing this Spring 2013 trend. The elegant Jessica Chastain wore a white ruffled blouse with a pencil skirt, while Milla Jovovich rocked a masculine black-and-white pant look.

Usually one to start trends, Anna Dello Russo also took to the front row at Chanel wearing a playful black-and-white look, which would’ve been better suited to Elle Fanning, methinks.

The best thing about this trend is that it’s easy to wear and affordable. You can rock it with the simplest staples, like vest tops, tees, skirts, pants and dresses.

Stripes might be the hardest look to rock; take it too far and you could end up looking like you are wearing prison stripes.

Jessica Chastain In Armani Privé – 2013 Oscars

2013Oscars_JessicaChastain

As one of the first stars on the 2013 Oscars red carpet, Jessica Chastain stunningly kick-started this evening at the Hollywood & Highland Center’s Dolby Theatre in California.

After her electric appearance in a cobalt blue Roland Mouret dress at the BAFTA Awards and a red Alexander McQueen design at the SAG Awards, the ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ nominee explored the other side of the colour spectrum today.

She wore a nude Armani Privé custom gown that screamed movie star.

This look unapologetically oozed old Hollywood glamour, especially with Jessica’s soft side-swept waves and her saturated ruby lip.

Normally with her fair skin tone and flame-red hair, this flesh-coloured, monotone palette could be problematic. But the subtle, sequin shimmer of the gown mixed with the bold lippie and the sparkle from Harry Winston diamond earrings and a ’60s-era Harry Winston bracelet pull it all together.

I’m glad she didn’t wear a necklace, though, as that would have cluttered the sweetheart neckline of this simply elegant gown.

Jessica Chastain In Chanel – 2013 Chanel Pre-Oscar Dinner

Jessica Chastain prepared for her night as an Oscar nominee at the Chanel Pre-Oscar Dinner hosted at Madeo Restaurant in Los Angeles on Saturday.

The ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ star wore a design from the Spring 2013 Couture collection.

Jessica was a vision in white—a colour which she’s often drawn to—in a silk pleated confection that looked airy and feminine. The crisscross halter neckline and bodice were accented with luxe blingy details.

The actress, whose style has been spot on as of late, styled the dress with sparkly champagne-colored open-toed heels, also by the hosting designer.

Jessica Chastain In Andrew Gn – TheWrap 4th Annual Pre-Oscar Party

Jessica Chastain In Andrew Gn - TheWrap 4th Annual Pre-Oscar Party

Jessica Chastain attended TheWrap 4th Annual Pre-Oscar Party at Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles in Beverly Hills, California on Wednesday evening.

Like me, she has two loves: blue and Andrew Gn’s classic designs, both of which are expertly showcased in this cobalt silk dress with a cape-like overlay with a beaded detail.

You may remember that Jessica selected a blue dress from the same Spring 2013 collection back in November.

On this occasion, she styled her look with nude Christian Louboutin pumps with side-swept strawberry-blonde locks and a pretty pink lip colour.
