Chanel Fall 2017 Front Row

Always a haute ticket, the Chanel Fall 2017 presentation on Tuesday (March 7) during Paris Fashion Week brought with it a set of unique Chanel style statements in the range of front-row looks that were spotted.

Rita Ora
: Going for a relaxed edginess, Rita wore a more laid-back statement in her metallic, floral-print blouse and slouchy leather-accented pants with the pop of her spring-green bag bringing an unexpected burst of colour to the darker look.

Lily Allen: Sculptural and chic, Lily played with proportion in her cape-sleeve coat styled with plush velvet pants for added texture. Her sunglasses, gigantic hoop earrings, and embellished handbag ensured there was a spirited personality to the serious side of the look.

Cara Delevingne: There was no risk for lack of attitude in the model’s ensemble, which saw her breathe a unique boldness into the prim sweater by pairing it with low-slung trousers and Supreme boxers. A Chanel choker and retro round shades completed her style-rebel ensemble.

Mademoiselle Prive Exhibition

Mademoiselle Prive Exhibition

Celebs were out in force to attended the Mademoiselle Prive Exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery on Monday (October 12) in London, England.

Julianne Moore: As always the actress took center-stage wearing an elaborate Chanel Fall 2015 Couture beaded suit. Adding a dazzling diamond necklace, the only thing bringing down this look are those bow accented booties.

Cara Delevingne: Having entranced us with her chic Saint Laurent suit earlier in the week, the model/actress serves up playful elegance wearing a classic Chanel LBD.

Vanessa Paradis: The French actress stood out donning a green Chanel Fall 2015 Couture free-flowing gown which couldn’t be a more perfect look considering her bohemian sensibilities.

Lily Allen In Miu Miu – LOVE Magazine Party

Lily Allen In Miu Miu - LOVE Magazine Party

Lily Allen attended the LOVE Magazine Party in London, England on Monday (September 21).

As we all know, Lily loves Chanel, but with her quirky sense of style I’m not surprised to see her wearing this Miu Miu Fall 2015 head-to-toe look.

I love how she made this look her own combining the prettiness of the summery prairie-style blouse with the retro flair of the mock-croc skirt.

While there’s beauty is this mish mash, the platform sandals stick out like a sore thumb.

Lily Allen In Chanel – XOYO

Lily Allen In Chanel - XOYO

Lily Allen was spotted aboard a hovertrax while taking smoke break outside XOYO in Shoreditch, London on Thursday (August 13), having watched Jay Electronica’s DJ set.

Many have questioned the Lily Allen/Chanel connection, and from this look I think it’s clear: Lily makes the brand look cool.

While some may have made this look overly prissy, Lily styled the colourful Chanel Spring 2014 crop top with a hoddie, sweatpants and sneakers, therefore totally making the look her own.

I don’t know about you, but I’m buying what she’s selling.

Lily Allen In Chanel Couture – Le Bal de la Rose 2015

Lily Allen In Chanel Couture - Le Bal de la Rose 2015

Lily Allen performed during the Rose Ball 2015 in aid of the Princess Grace Foundation at Sporting Monte-Carlo on Saturday (March 28) in Monte-Carlo, Monaco.

Sporting new dyed blonde tresses, the British singer wore a custom-made fringed Chanel Couture pink tulle gown with embroidered with silver sequins and pink pearls, but it’s the pink velvet coat with a collar embroidered with camellias which really made this look stand out.

Call me crazy, but I do find myself admiring the handiwork of Karl Lagerfeld’s pink coat.

It takes a certain kind of person to pull off such a creation, and Lily totally did justice to the look no matter how crazy it may appear.

Below is the sketch by Karl Lagerfeld and some pictures of the making of Lily Allen’s outfit.

Chanel Metiers d’Art Collection Pre-Fall 2015 Paris-Salzburg Front Row

Chanel Metiers d'Art Collection 201415 Paris-Salzburg Front Row

The Chanel Metiers d’Art Collection 2014/15 Paris-Salzburg was hosted on Tuesday (December 2) in Salzburg, Austria. Chanel-bedecked pretties were seated front and centre for the show.

Rooney Mara: The actress was dressed in a Chanel Fall 2014 Couture grey organza dress embellished with small concrete cubes and accented by balloon sleeves that corresponded with the full skirt embroidered with grey and gold rubber ribbons. Because the frock in itself was an art piece, she let it be the main exhibit with simple Chanel black pumps and the lightest sprinkling of Chanel Fine Jewelry to finish this statement look. The silhouette was girly, but the edginess was in the style-forward construction and materials.

Lily Allen: Working her own brand of edginess, the singer wore a Chanel Spring 2015 short-sleeve grey tweed coat over a blue knit top. It was rather demure—from the waist up. The Chanel Resort 2015 black sheer lace pants put the suggestive pop into this look, with a kitschy ‘lait de Coco’ Chanel milk-carton bag adding a final punch of humour. I just cannot get past her faded coral hair colour at the moment, though.

Àstrid Bergès-Frisbey: Working a sophisticated angle, the Franco-Spanish starlet wore a Chanel Spring 2015 matching black and white printed organza top and skirt with Chanel Fine Jewelry. Prim and feminine, she topped it off with mannish twist with her buckle boots and black tights.

Lily Allen In Vivienne Westwood – 2014 British Fashion Awards

Lily Allen In Vivienne Westwood - 2014 British Fashion Awards

Lily Allen turned heads with her own version of a mullet, as she entered the 2014 British Fashion Awards on Monday (December 1), which were held at the London Coliseum in London, England.

Never one to be a shrinking violet, she continued to indulge her quirky style personality in a Vivienne Westwood Spring 2015 baby-blue gown.

The short, cowl-neck dress was enveloped by a cape at the back, lending itself to a high-low effect. Unfortunately, the look translated as rumpled and ill-fitting.

For better or worse, the devilish styling helped distract attention away from the frock. Attaching a costume-y pair of gold-tipped pink horns within her melon-hued pixie cut, Lily finished the look with similarly silly and puzzling accessories. Nude pumps with teal toecaps and that metal chain handbag belonged nowhere near this concoction.

The devil’s all in the details of this mystifying look. Lily’s guardian fashion angels must have taken the day off.
