Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Chanel Spring 2014 Couture Front Row

The Chanel Spring 2014 Couture show took place during Paris Fashion Week today in France. The front row attendees were treated to a show which looked like the designer had sought inspiration from his Spring 2009 Couture collection.

Tilda Swinton: The only person who really caught my eye in the front row was Tilda. The face of Chanel’s Pre-Fall 2013 collection opted for a Chanel Pre-Fall 2014 look, wearing a cashmere star-print sweater with a colourful fringed knit skirt, styled with an American flag scarf, knit tights and two-tone Chanel pumps. Coming from Scotland, she knows a thing or two about dressing for the current season.

Lily Allen: The Brit singer was also perched in the front row, opting for simple staples, jazzing up her look with a red-white-and-blue tweed coat, a colourful headpiece and a Chanel quilted shoulder bag. Adding yet more colour to her look, she opted for smoked blue eye makeup. Between Lupita Nyong’o, Keira Knightley and now Lily, I’m thinking I need to step up my eye-makeup game this season.

Olga Kurylenko: The actress went from temptress at Dior to quite pedestrian at Chanel. If it weren’t for the glossy red lips and those studded cuffs, I wouldn’t have even noticed this look.

Lily Allen In Chanel - 'Saving Mr Banks' London Film Festival Closing Night Gala Premiere

Lily Allen attended the Closing Night Gala premiere of ‘Saving Mr Banks’ during the 57th BFI London Film Festival held at the Odeon Leicester Square in London yesterday evening.

After a hiatus to concentrate on being a mother, the singer is back on the red carpet and it appears not much has changed as she’s wearing Chanel once again.

As she’s one of Uncle Karl’s favourite’s, she was able to go back into the archives to select this Chanel Fall 2011 gown featuring a white cap-sleeved top with black lace accents and a chiffon shredded black skirt accented with an embroidered-leaf waistband.

The look was given a pop of colour via her yellow manicure, with a Chanel ‘Lego’ clutch completing the look.

I do love it when celebs go back into the archives. It’s an opportunity for them to pick those pieces we wish we’d seen on the red carpet. Sadly, this wasn’t such an occasion as this dress has been worn twice before.

Zoe Kravitz wore it to the 2011 UNICEF Snowflake Ball and Emilia Clarke wore it to the 2012 SAG Awards.

I wonder who will wear it in 2014?

Lily Allen was one of the many famous faces who attended Chanel’s Fall 2011 presentation during Paris Fashion Week back in March.

There to support one of her favourite labels, the singer told the press on her way in “I’m here to see Karl for my wedding dress.”

Sitting front row, Lily wore a gorgeous modified emerald green Chanel Pre-Fall 2011 tweed coat.

She paired the coat with a LBD, Ray-Ban sunglasses, tights and black shoes but added some excitement with one killer accessory; an extremely covetable, bright red quilted Chanel bag.

Lily styled her hair into a super chic up-do and topped it off with lipstick to match her lovely bag.

Sarah Jessica Parker chose the runway version of the same coat to wear to the opening night of “Catch Me If You Can” on Broadway.

The actress styled her look completely differently to Lily, opting to wear it with a graphic black and white Oscar de la Renta cap sleeve sheath dress.

SJP added a pair of Christian Louboutin ‘Luxura’ ankle strap heels, a bronze studded cuff and diamond earrings as accessories.

Loose wavy hair and smoky eyes completed her look.

My vote is going to Lily because I think she looks incredibly sophisticated and pulls her entire look together perfectly. I love that Lily focused on two amazing pieces (the coat and purse) and kept everything else in black.

I appreciate SJP’s efforts to mix and match textures, prints and colours but I think there is a little too much going on and her eye makeup is too heavy for my taste.

Lily Allen caused a paparazzi frenzy when she arrived at LAX this week.

The singer traveled with two designer bags, and neither were Chanel.

Her Louis Vuitton Mon Monogram Pegase is initialed with L.R.C., which stands for Lily Rose Cooper. This has the media believing she has already married her partner Sam Cooper.

You can create your own Louis Vuitton Mon Monogram Pégase via an in-store computer simulation on LouisVuitton.com like I did in the picture above.

A set of two-tone initials of up to three letters, either vertical or diagonal stripes, or a combination of both initials and stripes can be chosen from a range of 17 different colours resulting in more than 200 million possible combinations per bag.

Lily also traveled with a Prada striped tote from the Spring 2011 collection.

Kate Hudson was the first to wear this Louis Vuitton monogrammed cape from the Pre-Fall 2010 collection back in April.

She wore it on the red carpet when she arrived at the Tribeca Film Festival Premiere of her movie “The Killer Inside.”

The actress teamed her outerwear with an LV LBD, Brian Atwood ‘Alix’ pumps, Hollywood waves and a gold clutch.

Lily Allen also wore hers cape with an LBD before taking her seat at the TopShop Unique Spring 2011 presentation during London Fashion Week last month.

The pregnant star managed to hide her growing baby bump under the cape.

She added black tights, heels and a red Chanel bag to her look.

I’ve never liked this cape on Kate. It looks so awkward whereas Lily it very much suits her laid back style so she wins for me.
