Who Wore Chanel Better? Emily Mortimer or Leigh Lezark

Emily Mortimer first wore this Chanel dress from the Paris-Monte Carlo Pre-Fall 2007 collection to the “Costume Institute Benefit Gala” in New York way back in May 2007.

I think Emily looks really cute here and I like that she’s gone for a similar coloured shoe.

The gold of her belt was a nice bit of styling, as it really pops against the blue of her dress.

Leigh Lezark then wore this dress to Chanel’s “Fete D’Hiver Fall Gala” in November 2009.

I adore this dress on Leigh as I think she looks so elegant in this royal blue, yet it still reflects her edgier side.

I can’t understand why she chose to wear black pumps though. It seems like such an unthoughtful end to such a great outfit.

As Emily styled it better she wins for me.

Chanel “Fete D’Hiver” Fall Gala

First Audrey Tautou, now Diane Kruger is making me fall in love with the Chanel Fall 2009 Couture collection.

Many of you have already made claims as to who your BDOTW is, well you hadn’t banked on Diane knocking it out of the fashion ball park at this event.

I don’t think we’ve ever seen so many major players bring their ‘A’ game in one week on the red carpet.

The magpie in me is drooling over the midnight blue sequins embroidered onto the dress, whilst the cynic in me is grateful she ditched the train.

The peplum skirt appears to be longer on Diane than on the runway which I prefer.

My only criticism is that the dress didn’t need the necklace.

Blake Lively is giving us everything we expect from her.

Signature pose – check
Flawless make-up – check

But in a refreshing change of pace, Blake opted for a classic black Chanel Resort 2010 gown covering both the twins and her legs.

She could’ve worn a cute sassy dress like Diane, but some may have said accused her for being too predictable.

I applaud her for switching things up.

I think the floral corsage necklace kept this look current for the young actress.

Leigh Lezark picked the perfect dress to suit her funky personality.

The blue tulle dress is cute, but Leigh still gives it plenty of attitude as you would expect.

Front Row @ Paris Fashion Week

John Galliano

Dita von Teese attended the John Galliano show wearing a lavender embroidered Christian Dior Resort 2010 plunging dress which tied at the waist.

The beautiful star wore her dress with a lust worthy pair of silver Christian Louboutin Archidisco T-Strap sandals.

Katy Perry and Russell Brand officially showed that they were a couple at this event.

She glowed in the front row wearing a pink strapless gown which had a floral embroidery detail snaking around her waist.

Miu Miu

Kate Moss and boyf Jamie Hince were in the front row at Miu Miu.

On the penultimate day of Paris Fashion Week it was very hot, so I admire Kate for wearing a turtle neck leather dress which must have been extremely uncomfortable.

She paired her dress with Christian Louboutin Pigalle heels and a studded belt from her Kate Moss for Topshop collection.

Renee Zellwegger was at Miu Miu wearing a LBD.

If the rumours about her and Carolina Herrera no longer working together are true, Renee would have been shopping for a new BFF designer in Paris.

Giambattista Valli

The bold Leigh Lezark wore a Giambattista Valli peacock feather coat which makes her look like big bird from Sesame Street.

Elettra Rosselini’s look is more demure in a red dress with black heels.

Front Row @ Chanel’s Spring 2010 Presentation

Rihanna sent the paparazzi crazy wearing a white bustier and a tweed high-waisted Chanel Pre-Fall 2009 skirt with a multitude of Chanel necklaces that would put Mr T to shame.

Keeping her shades on through-out the show Anna Wintour style, Rihanna also accessorized with a black and red Chanel hand muff/bag.

I bet Rihanna was furious that Leigh Lezark beat her to this Chanel Fall 2009 black and white print leotard over leggings situation.

I can’t really call it a look now can I?

The scary thing is a lot of thought went into this situation because Leigh took the leotard from Look 39, pairing it with the leggings from Look 40.

Despite this being Chanel, you just wouldn’t would you?

Even if Uncle Karl promised you a life-time supply of large quilted bags in various colours the shame of this would haunt you for life.

I got a very strong case of  de ja vu looking at Claudia Schiffer.

Unlike the rest of the celebs who relaxed in the front row, Lily Allen was at the Chanel Spring 2010 show during Paris Fashion Week in a work capacity

She looked adorable as she performed a live set for the waiting fashionistas.

I would assume her black and gold sequined Chanel dress adorned with ostrich feathers was custom made, but it could be part of the collection.

The singer also wore two tone tights with Chanel Spring 2009 Couture ankle strap heels.

Front Row @ Paris Fashion Week

Karl Lagerfeld

This is one of my favourite look of Paris Fashion Week, even if Katy Perry is slightly too busty for this Karl Lagerfeld Fall 2009 dress.

I love the structure, the dark taupe colour and the way the dress falls back over her shoulders.

Her look was paired with ankle booties and a Karl Lagerfeld Spring 2009 bag, which has the designers face printed on the front.

Rihanna surprisingly opted for a subtle look wearing all black.

Her look was paired with leather gloves and Christian Louboutin lace pumps.

Lanvin

Janet Jackson looked very sophisticated wearing a black Lanvin Pre-Fall 2009 dress with a ruffled detail on one shoulder.

Janet is officially the Sophia Bush of Fashion Week.

Hussein Chalayan

This is my favourite look from Rihanna so far at Paris Fashion Week.

This grey Hussein Chalayan Fall 2009 has an edge without going over the top, even with those thigh-high boots.

I hope she wears more from this designer in the future.

Givenchy

Many of you will be spitting fire that Rihanna is wearing Givenchy Couture, but at least she didn’t make it look comical.

Her black velvet Couture Fall 2009 jacket was paired with a simple LBD and black ankle boots.

Leigh Lezark opted for a Givenchy Resort 2010 look which included black pants, paired with a studded silk cowl-neck sleeveless top and a studded leather vest.

She really did pick the best look to suit her rock and roll style.

Sonia Rykiel

I’ve always loved this Sonia Rykiel Fall 2009 sparkling dress, and I’m so glad to see how cute yet sexy it looks on Katy Perry.

She wore her dress with a pair of Christian Louboutin pigalle’s.

Maison Martin Margiela

Michael Jackson gave us the glove, now Rihanna is trying to give us the Long sleeved glove.

I don’t think her Maison Martin Margiela white long sleeved glove will have the same impact, but she makes it work for what it is.

The disappointing thing was that her dress was so sheer, you could see her nipple ring and thong in some pictures.

Jean Paul Gaultier

Oh Dita von Teese.

Perfection, poise, sophistication and class just oozes from your every pore.

From the top of your head, to the tips of your bustier right down to your Louboutin’s.  You’re probably the only one really deserving to be front row at Paris Fashion Week.

Only you can bring the magic to this Jean Paul Gaultier Fall 2009 Couture dress like no one else could.

J’Adore Dita.  J’Adore.

Rihanna opted for a criss cross  jacket which showed off her satin bra.

Leather pants and Christian Louboutin Ni toi ni moi blue suede boots completed this crazy look.

Katy Perry was more demure wearing a Jean Paul Gaultier Fall 2009 black halter dress paired with a pigalle’s and a Chanel quilted bag.

Vivienne Westwood

Rihanna seems to not like wearing much clothes these days.

Here she opted for a Vivienne Westwood Fall 2009 black oversized blazer, which covered her bra and panties.

Thigh-high tan boot completed this “I got dress in a hurry” look.

Jessica Stroup being at Paris Fashion Week is exciting in that it shows she has a lot of fashion potential.

But like Blake Lively before her, she totally wrecks her opportunity by looking a complete mess in the front row.

Her Vivienne Westwood red strapless dress is horribly creased and terribly ill-fitting, plus her Brian Atwood Lola Suede pumps don’t work with her dress.

I hope she has time to redeem herself before she flies back to the US.

Christian Dior

Dita von Teese looks HAWT wearing a Christian Dior leather skirt suit.

If it looks very familiar, that’s because she wore a black wool version to the Wonderbra Party Edition Launch in London recently.

She teams her dress with grey metallic heels and a Christian Dior Resort 2010 leopard print bag.

Carine Roitfeld finally wore something besides her YSL vintage dress and Alaia heels for a nice change.

This time she opted for an Alexander McQueen Pre-Fall 2009 grey suit, paired with a grey sweater.

I love the positioning of the arm holes on this jacket.

Wang Lei opted for a simple Dior Pre-Fall 2009 grey dress with a neck tie, which is very similar to the grey skirt suit which was presented on the runway.

Rihanna tries to do Dita, but comes off looking quite ridiculous.

She also carried a bag from the Christian Dior Resort 2010 collection, and paired her dress with Christian Louboutin Studded Pigalle Pumps.

This is the worst look of the week.

Who Wore Chanel Better? Demi Moore or Leigh Lezark

The forever young Demi Moore gave us a throw back to the 80s with her big voluminous hair which revealed her pearl earrings at the UK premiere of ‘Flawless’ last year.

She walked the red carpet wearing a black Chanel dress with a peplum at the waist, and white lace sleeves fringed with beads.

Her sophisticated look was paired with black peep-toes and a matching clutch.

MisShapes’ Leigh Lezark attended the 6th Annual New Yorkers For Children Spring Dinner Dance in New York back in April wearing the same dress.

She decided to team her look with caged ankle boots, and a studded clutch.

This is hard because they both look great, but I think the style of dress is more suited to Demi so she wins for me.
