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.

Lily Allen In Shrimps – Sushisamba

Lily Allen In Shrimps - Sushisamba

Lily Allen and husband Sam Cooper were spotted leaving Sushisamba after Lily’s performance at the second anniversary party of the restaurant in London last night (November 11).

The singer wore a black hooded tracksuit with a Shrimps faux fur coat from the London brand’s Fall 2014 collection.

These striped coats are becoming quite a celebrity favourite, with London lovelies such as Alexa Chung and Poppy Delevingne big fans of not only their coats, but also their clutches and scarves.

This quirky coat couldn’t be more perfect for the singer’s often offbeat style, but the head scratcher is wearing a faux fur coat with open-toe sandals.

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.

Lily Allen In Ashish & House of Holland – Terminal 5

Lily Allen In Ashish & House of Holland - Terminal 5

Lily Allen performed at Terminal 5 on Tuesday (September 23) in New York City.

The singer wore some eye-popping pieces – which came in three parts – helping her light up the stage during her performance.

You may feel like her ‘Lily’ pink sequin- and pearl-accented sweater is familiar; that’s because she wore a similar Ashish Fall 2014 sweater with a ‘USA’ motif earlier this year.

The rest of her look had even more of a quirk to it, with a baby-bottle sequin House of Holland skirt with a pink tulle hemline paired and an embellished House of Holland crop top.

While this kooky outfit has Christmas party written all over it, it, like Lily, has plenty of personality, plus it’s eye-catching enough that she would’ve been spotted by those in the cheap seats.

Who Wore Chanel Better…Diane Kruger or Lily Allen?

Who Wore Chanel Better

Diane Kruger wore a beautiful Chanel Pre-Fall 2014 ensemble featuring a crisp white shirt with a small black bow, plus a collarless jacket and a sheer-hemmed skirt decorated with red, white and blue star appliqués to ‘The Galapagos Affair: Satan Came to Eden’ premiere during the 64th Berlinale International Film Festival.

As always, the styling was on point, with her favourite Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ sandals and a small black clutch completing the look.

Lily Allen wore the same look back in May while out to dinner at the Chiltern Firehouse.

Some might question, is that the same look? It is but Lily styled it differently, opting to wear the cropped blouse unbuttoned and going sans bow.

Did Lily’s more relaxed version of this look win you over?

For me it’s an easy win for Diane.
