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.

Runway To The “The Imaginarium Of Doctor Parnassus” UK Premiere – Lily Cole In Chanel Couture

Lily Cole walked the red carpet in London last night for the UK premiere of her movie “The Imaginarium Of Doctor Parnassus”.

The British model/actress/Cambridge University student looked so statuesque wearing a Chanel Spring 2008 Couture black and white tired haltered gown with a flower detailed neckline.

I’m not so crazy about the shoes, but everything else works for me.

I believe this would have been difficult for many to pull off, but being the tall and beautiful Lily does it with ease.

This is the second Chanel Couture look the model has worn during this promotional tour. She first wore Chanel Couture in Cannes.

Who Wore Alexander McQueen Better? Cheryl Cole or Lily Cole

After her hike up Mount Kilimanjaro in aid of Comic Relief Cheryl Cole headed to 10 Downing Street to meet with Prime Minister Gordon Brown with her eight fellow celebrity climbers.

Cheryl of course stood out wearing an ivory knee length Alexander McQueen lace dress with tan  Rupert Sanderson platform heels, accessorized with a couple of simple bangles and coral Kenneth Jay Lane Coral droplet earrings.

Lily Cole wore the same dress with black and white strappy sandals when she attended a screening of ‘Time Bandits’ at The Electric Cinema in London back in June.

I can’t resist those coral earrings which add a pop of colour to her look, so Cheryl wins for me.

Who Wore Stella McCartney Better? Victoria Beckham, Lily Cole, Kate Walsh or Stella McCartney

It’s not unusual for Victoria Beckham to be first when it comes to fashion. She was the first to wear these Stella McCartney ankle zip skinny ombre jeans whilst making her way through Heathrow airport earlier this year.

She wore them with her leather Balmain jacket, Loewe hat, Christian Louboutin’s and white Kelly Travel bag.

Model/actress Lily Cole wore the same jeans with a loose fitting dusky pink top and multi-coloured strappy heels to “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus” Photo Call during Cannes Film Festival.

Kate Walsh wore hers with a sparkling Stella McCartney tank top during a photo call at the Monte Carlo TV Festival.

And finally the designer of these beautiful jeans – Stella McCartney – wore hers with a cropped jacket from her Resort 2010 collection to the presentation of her new collection at “The Corner” in Berlin.

This is a tough one, because everyone looks great minus Lily because I really dislike her shoes.

Stella wins this for me, as her look is the most effortless and most chic.

These jeans are available to purchase from Net-A-Porter international for £157.50/€206.50.

2009 Cannes Film Festival Catch Up – Part 4

“The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus” Premiere

Lily Cole looked like a fairytale princess in her pale blue Chanel Fall 2007 Couture gown.

As soon as I saw Lily, I immediately thought of Amy Adams’ character Giselle in the Disney movie Enchanted, as Lily has that same beautiful innocence.

Spanish Model and TV host Mar Saura, causes a stir by striking a sexy pose wearing a Nina Ricci Spring 2009 halter dress with a rise and fall hem.

The dress showed off her long legs and Jimmy Choo Pixie sandals.

Model Noemie Lenoir could wear a black sack and still shine, but instead opted for an Armani Privé Spring 2009 strapless gown.

Her stunning gown had an embroidered bell-shaped skirt and a sequin bodice.

Credit were credit is due, Peaches Geldof is trying.

But even in this electric blue strapless Roberto Cavalli gown, I’m still not particularly convinced she has turned over a new leaf.

“The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus” Photocall

Lily opted for a low key look for the photocall wearing a pale pink top with Stella McCartney ankle zip jeans and a pair of quite hideous pink and orange heels.

“Face” Premiere

Zhang Ziyi looked utterly divine in her pink floral Giorgio Armani Spring 2009 strapless gown with a twisted bodice.

The dress should have been the main focus – especially as her hair was pulled back and her make-up was subtle – but I find myself instantly drawn to her necklace.

What a magnificent piece it is, and I’m usually put off by a large statement pieces grabbing away the attention from the gown.

As much as I love Kerry Washington I don’t love her Monique Lhuillier gown, despite how elegant she looks.

I think it’s the lace one-sleeved top half which is putting me off.

When I saw her I really wanted to find something nice to say, but all I could think was I like her Roger Vivier black satin clutch.

Michelle Yeoh was the picture of elegance wearing a black shimmering Roberto Cavalli gown, with an exquisite silver necklace.

“Map of the Sounds of Tokyo” Premiere

This is something we don’t see very often from Rinko Kikuchi – a soft and sweet look.

Usually she’s wearing something cutting edge, couture, or well structured, so this white ethereal vintage Sophia Kokosalaki gown is a nice refreshing change.

Actress Elodie Bouchez wore a strapless Balmain Spring 2009 LBD with a studded belt  and Jimmy Choo Seattle sandals.

Elodie’s look has less sparkle, in comparison to the runway version because she opted for the black belt which I actually prefer.

“Map of the Sounds of Tokyo” Premiere

This more like the Rinko Kikuchi we know, wearing a piece that has a lot of personality.

Her Chanel Resort 2010 dress included a peplum on the waist, and gold detailing throughout.
