Lara Bingle Front Row At RAFW Spring Summer 2010/11

Rosemount Australian Fashion Week has started and the one everyone is watching in the front row is Lara Bingle.

The model started the week at the Ginger & Smart Spring 2010 show.

She looked stunning wearing a gorgeous peachy Ellery jacket paired with a simple grey mini dress and Nicholas Kirkwood heels.

I love how her jacket brightens up the simple dress.

Lara wore my favourite Burberry Prorsum Spring 2010 blue satin dress to both the Harper’s BAZAAR & BlackBerry’s White Bold Party and Jayson Brunsdon Spring 2010 show.

Again she wears her Nicholas Kirkwood heels plus the same military belt the dress was presented with.

With her hair off her face, we get to see those knotted shoulders.

At the Dion Lee Spring 2010 show we see Lara mixing an edgy Proenza Schouler Spring 2010 skirt with a black blazer by Ellery, a white shirt and leather Givenchy booties which I’m drooling over.

What do you think of Lara’s front row style?

Who Wore Prada Better? Lara Bingle or Lee Na Young

Model Lara Bingle wore this Prada Resort 2010 candy coloured dress with a draped back detail whilst promoting Aussie energy drink ‘Synergy’.

Lara loves Prada and it appears that Prada loves her, because she looks really fresh and youthful in this dress with her blonde beach hair worn down around her shoulders.

I would’ve liked to have seen her wear a different shoe to the grey suede Louboutin’s.

Actress Lee Na Young wore the same dress to the VIP screening of “Happy Change” earlier this year.

I like this on her but I not crazy about it on her.

When I see the nude heels Lee wore, I appreciated why Lara opted for a contrasting colour.

I think the nude top half of this dress washes Lee out a bit, so Lara wins for me.

Runway To Allan Border Medal – Lara Bingle In Michelle Jank

This fashion week I’ve been introduced to many Australian designers like Michael Angel, Kit Willow and now I can add Michelle Jank to that list thanks to Lara Bingle.

The Cricket WAG arrived at the “Allan Border Medal” ceremony in Melbourne with fiancé Michael Clarke.

As usual she looked A-Friggin-Mazing wearing a very simple, but incredibly sexy white Michelle Jank Spring 2010 gown with padded shoulders.

The gown draped deliciously off her toned tanned figure.

Instead of wearing jewels, Lara opted for temporary Chanel tattoos of draping necklaces and multiple bracelets which we saw presented in the Spring 2010 collection.

2009 Emirates Melbourne Cup Day & 2009 AAMI Victoria Derby Day

2009 Emirates Melbourne Cup Day

Like Ascot in the UK the Melbourne Cup Day is more about hats and fashion than horse-racing – from a woman’s point of view of course.

Kate Waterhouse oozed sophistication wearing a Chloé bow-detailed asymmetric silk blouse, which she paired with a high waisted white skirt and nude heels.

Normally I really hate a necklace worn with an asymmetrical top, but I’m surprised that it doesn’t bother me here.

Her hat perfects this stunning look.

I believe Jennifer Hawkins is wearing a stunning head-piece, but unfortunately I can barely make it out from the artwork behind her.

Laura Dundovic was my second favourite going for a black and beige colour co-ordinated look.

Model Sophie Monk opted for a sexier leopard print look.

I guess models can write their own fashion rule books, but it doesn’t feel quite right at this event.

More stunning hats.

Sonia Kruger looks stunning, I’m so jealous of her toned legs.

I love the fuschia colour of her look and her hat which looks like something a chic air stewardess would wear in the 70s.

I didn’t like anything about Olivia Newton-John’s look.  I may have like it had she not gone overboard with the boots and the lace gloves.

Zara Phillips’ Thread Social dress is unflattering on her from every angle.

Her Philip Treacy hat is nice though.

Designer Leona Edmiston had some extra pieces of tulle left over from designing her hat, so she incorporated the left-overs into her dress.

2009 AAMI Victoria Derby Day

Lara Bingle made sure all eyes were on her by wearing a large head-piece.

I’m sure it was mission accomplished, but every one was no doubt looking at her because of her deep plunging LBD than her hat.

Those of us outside Australia still don’t really know Lara, but the model is set to skate to international fame with news she will head to London in March for the UK series of “Torvill and Dean: Skating on Ice”.

Megan Gale’s black and white dress is so chic it hurts.

Loves it.

Jennifer Hawkins’ bold shoulder dress was covered with a lace overlay to complement her square lace head piece.

Who Wore Louis Vuitton Better? Rihanna or Lara Bingle

Rihanna opted for an edgy Louis Vuitton ensemble when she attended the “3rd Annual DKMS Gala” back in May.

The look included a raspberry tulip skirt, a metallic top, chunky Daisy choker, black knee-high Cancan boots, a red clutch and a spiky ring.

As you can see from the runway picture below she copied the whole look.

Australian model Lara Bingle yesterday arrived at the first anniversary party of the “Louis Vuitton Collins Street” in Melbourne, Australia.

She didn’t work the head-to-toe runway look, instead she added green suede pumps and a black Louis Vuitton Minaudiere clutch.

Firstly, I don’t like Lara choice of shoes. They are a bit safe for such a look.

Secondly, Lara is wearing such an interesting bold metallic top so I would have preferred her to pull her hair back to show it off.

Thirdly, this look suits Rihanna’s edgier style better, so she wins for me.
