Chanel Dinner Celebrating ‘N°5 THE FILM’ By Baz Luhrmann

Chanel Dinner Celebrating 'No5 THE FILM' By Baz Luhrmann

Chanel hosted a dinner party yesterday evening (October 13) in New York City to celebrate N°5 THE FILM by Baz Luhrmann, with plenty of usual suspects hitting the red carpet.

Lily Allen: Always on hand to show support for any Chanel project, the British singer wore a Chanel Resort 2015 boucle multi-coloured dress, which was presented as a coat, bringing a mod touch to her look with platform Chelsea boots.

Poppy Delevingne: The socialite looked beautiful and graceful wearing a colourful chiffon Resort 2015 look comprising three tiers, which she effortlessly styled with a blue Chanel clutch. She was by far my favourite at this event.

Gisele Bündchen: The Brazilian model, who appears in the film, selected a look from Chanel’s Fall 2014 Couture collection. Complementing the shimmering silver embellished look with silver accessories including a gorgeous pair of Jimmy Choo ‘Minati’ pumps with an asymmetrical strap, I can’t help but feel that no matter what she wears, she always looks the same. This is usually a good thing, but not on this occasion. She’s just doesn’t strike me as a Chanel girl. Her over the top posing at this event proved that.

Chanel Spring 2015 Front Row

chanel spring 2015

Karl Lagerfeld presented Chanel’s Spring 2015 collection during Paris Fashion Week on Tuesday (September 30) yesterday morning.

Elisa Sednaoui: The model brought some colour to the front row wearing a Chanel Resort 2015 ensemble with a distinct laidback vibe, which, as expected, she makes look chic and effortless.

Alexa Chung: As you know, Alexa has been impressing me of late with her red carpet choices, and I expected the same from this event; sadly, I was totally underwhelmed. It’s almost like no effort was put into this at all. The whole look is too boxy and not to my liking. She can do better, especially at Chanel.

Poppy Delevingne: The model/socialite also went down the easy breezy route, selecting a Chanel Resort 2015 red and white romper styled with gold sandals and a red Chanel bag. The look is effortless and chic and, most importantly, looks modern and elegant. She’s a great Chanel ambassador.

Chanel Tribeca Film Festival Artist Dinner

Chanel Tribeca Film Festival Artist DinnerA palette of pretty young things were spotted at the 9th annual Chanel Artists Dinner on Tuesday (April 22), hosted during the Tribeca Film Festival at Balthazar in New York City. The glamorous soiree invited plenty of Chanel-infused looks, naturally, with most of the lovelies showing their love for the label.

Greta Gerwig: Pretty in pink, the actress embraced spring with her Chanel Spring 2014 distressed tweed dress matched to a pink and orange Chanel clutch. Nude pumps, a nude lip and a slicked-back ’do ensured that all attention was directed to her bright frock.

Lily Aldridge
: The model struck a shimmering chic stance in a Chanel Resort 2014 navy embroidered dress with chiffon overlay, paired with a silver clutch. With her simply styled brunette strands and barely-there makeup, I love how effortlessly and beautifully she pulls off what could be a fussy, tired iteration of the sheer trend.

Burberry Host The XX In New York City

Burberry Host The XX In New York City

Burberry hosted an intimate performance by British band The XX in New York City earlier on Wednesday (March 19) at the Park Avenue Armory, inviting models and socialites who were all wearing Burberry Prorsum.

Erin Heatherton: The Victoria’s Secret model wore a Burberry Prorsum emerald-green lace off-the-shoulder dress from the Resort 2014 collection featuring a crystal-embellished waistband which made for a sophisticated and eternally elegant look. Just a pair of nude Loubies accessorized her look.

Harley Viera Newton: Working a pink-and-white look, the socialite donned a Burberry Prorsum Spring 2014 pink patterned crochet skirt, which you may remember we’ve seen on Angelababy, styled with a sheer dotted top, white pumps and a light-pink clutch. I adore the pink lip colour here, but sadly the revealing black bra snatches this away from being a BDOTW-worthy look.

Tali Lennox: The model wore a chic Burberry white frock styled with a Burberry Prorsum black-and-white striped fold-over clutch. What possessed her to wear those striped wedges with this look I will never know.

Longchamp Flagship Store Opening

Longchamp Flagship Store Opening 14 Sept

Longchamp celebrated the opening of its London flagship store on Regent Street on Saturday evening, inviting a host of celebrity guests.

I was lucky enough to be invited and mingled with a host of celebrity guests across the three floors while being thoroughly entertained by Alexa Chung and Pixie Geldof, who were spinning the decks (see my pictures below).

Zoe Saldana: The beautiful actress, who is currently in London filming her next blockbuster ‘Guardian of the Galaxy’, looked effortless wearing a draped-front ivory silk blouse and shorts from Longchamp’s Spring 2014 collection, which she styled with a ‘Roseau Box’ clutch and taupe Louboutins. She was such a delight, happily posing for a picture for us.

Kate Moss: The model, who has a very strong connection with Longchamp having designed bags for the brand, was the one person who everyone wanted to see close up. She didn’t disappoint, wearing a sexy black keyhole romper with a unique whiplash leather belt, which she accessorized with a blue Kate Moss for Longchamp clutch for a pop of colour.

Alexa Chung: The DJ was in great spirits on the night, opting for a black vinyl Jonathan Saunders ‘Jemima’ bustier dress from the Fall 2013 collection to showcase her darker and sexier side, which she styled with a cute pair of houndstooth ankle-strap pumps. The ivory cardi was just for the red carpet.

Front Row @ NYFW Weekend Catch Up

Front Row @ NYFW Weekend Catch Up

Here’s a quick catch up of the front row who caught my eye during New York Fashion Week this weekend.

Ciara @ Prabal Gurung: The singer wore a pretty Prabal Gurung embroidered angular insert dress with a flared silhouette styled with bondage boots courtesy of Casadei, which were presented during the designer’s Fall 2013 collection.

Solange Knowles @ Alexander Wang: What’s not to love about Solange’s outfit? The colour, the quirky glasses, the Wang Resort 2014 skirt, that bag and those sexy sandals…? Perhaps it shouldn’t, but it ALL works.

Rihanna @ Opening Ceremony: It’s been a while since we saw Rihanna front row at NYFW, as she tends to skip the shows and head to the after-parties. On Sunday she was front and centre at Opening Ceremony wearing a grey Zac Posen satin floral dress with Underground ‘Wulfrun’ creepers with a Lynn Ban choker. A part of me wants to say it’s ridiculous to pair such a pretty dress with creepers, but I have to say she sells it to me, as per.
