Vogue Paris 95th Anniversary Party

Vogue Paris 95th Anniversary Party

A crush of chic beauties and models of the moment made for quite the spectacular showing at the Vogue Paris 95th Anniversary Party on Friday (October 3) in Paris, France.

Giovanna Battaglia: Everything was coming up roses, in rather dramatic fashion, for Giovanna who left no petal unturned in this Alexander McQueen Fall 2015 red rose organza and lace ruffle dress worn with a lace bra and black lace embroidered boots. I kind of wish that lace collar piece was missing in action.

Kendall Jenner
: The model went the sophisticatedly chic route in an Ulyana Sergeenko Fall 2015 Couture black velvet bustier gown constructed with a touch of youthful charm in the large collection of ruffle roses that dotted the hem of the dress. The finish of a ruby lip brought even more va-voom spirit.

Zoe Kravitz: Adding more rose-laced, flower-power to the proceedings, she rocked the Balenciaga Spring 2016 dress that she modeled during the label’s runway show paired with Balenciaga matching mules and complementary jewels. This is a more delicate side to Zoe’s style, but the full-on sheer story and high-waisted briefs has me fatigued on this occasion.

Laetitia Casta In Givenchy Couture – ‘Macbeth’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Laetitia Casta In Givenchy Couture -  'Macbeth' Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Laetitia Casta was at the ‘Macbeth’ premiere on Saturday (May 23) during the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival in Cannes France.

Dressing rather theatrically herself, she looked to the Givenchy Couture Fall 2012 collection for inspiration.

Heavy on the fringe and tassels, the black halter gown was an edgy turn for the French model.

Perhaps that’s even more reason why I found her rather dated ’do a strange, and semi-aging, complement to the look.

L’Oreal Paris Collection Exclusive Pure Reds Campaign

L'Oreal Paris Collection Exclusive Pure Reds campaign

Blake Lively, Zoe Saldana, Jane Fonda, Laetitia Casta, Julianne Moore, Liya Kebede, Freida Pinto, Eva Longoria, Natasha Poly and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan star in the latest L’Oreal Paris Collection Exclusive Pure Reds campaign, which was shot by Norman Jean Roy.

Each of the ambassadors are dressed in white (Zoe and Liya in Elie Saab Spring 2014) with a bold red lip, but the twist is they are not all wearing the same shade.

The red lip shades were inspired by their skin tones and even their hair colour to create the perfect match.

L’Oreal is hoping to diminish the fear of choosing such a bold lip colour with the new collection.

L’Oreal make-up artist Lynsey Alexander said, “The correct red should leave you feeling empowered, confident, and sexy all at once whilst ultimately being something you choose to wear and not something that wears you. There is most definitely a perfect red for everyone and if you apply one tone and feel conscious and aware of it then it’s not the one for you.”

All of our favourite L’Oreal girls appear in the ad, with the exception of new girl Kirsten Dunst, Cheryl Cole and Sonam Kapoor.

A few of the shades are below. I’m having a strong pull towards Laetitia’s deep rouge.

Who Wore Dolce & Gabbana Better…Laetitia Casta or Lucy Liu?

Who Wore Dolce & Gabbana Better Laetitia Casta or Lucy Liu

Back in February, Laetitia Casta attended a photocall during the 64th Festival di Sanremo 2014 wearing a Dolce & Gabbana dress featuring an illustration of Acropoli di Agrigento in Sicily.

Opting for a more conservative look than we are used to, she styled the look with a black blazer and bow-front pumps.

Lucy Liu wore the same dress a few months later to the Tony Awards nomination, adding a belt and keeping the styling to a minimum which won me over, so she wins for me.

Laetitia Casta In Christian Dior Couture – ‘Grace of Monaco’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere & Opening Ceremony

Laetitia Casta In Christian Dior Couture - ‘Grace of Monaco’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere & Opening Ceremony

Laetitia Casta attended the ‘Grace of Monaco’ premiere, which also served as the opening ceremony of the 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival this evening (May 14) in France.

Dressed in Dior, the French model wore a strapless Spring 2014 Couture gown with a rise-and-fall hemline detailed with crystal and organza appliqués.

I can still appreciate the beautiful details of this gown despite it being a tad too shapeless for my personal tastes, but I can’t forgive those black pumps with this look.

Dior has such a wide variety of pumps which would’ve been so complementary to this look, so her pedestrian choice baffles me.
