Melanie Laurent In Maxime Simoëns - 'The Homesman' Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Melanie Laurent attended ‘The Homesman’ premiere during the 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival on Sunday (May 18) in Cannes, France.

The actress looked beautiful wearing a Maxime Simoëns red and black chiffon gown embroidered with shimmering sequins from the Nosferatu Collection.

Adding a touch of bohemian flair to match the mood of her glittering confection, she styled her hair into a loose part-braid, with a silver cuff and black platform pumps rounding out her look.

Burberry Prorsum Fall 2014 Womenswear Show

Burberry Prorsum Fall 2014 Womenswear Show

The Burberry Prorsum Fall 2014 fashion show took place during London Fashion Week this afternoon (February 17).

As we’ve come to expect, the hottest ticket in town attracted a lot of celebrity faces, some of whom also attended the menswear show last month. Bradley Cooper didn’t take to the red carpet, but you can see him seated next to Anna Wintour below.

Paloma Faith: After working a summery BDOTY-worthy look for the menswear show, Paloma was in a more Fall-like mood. Wearing pieces from the Pre-Fall 2013 collection including a London landscape printed tee and green jacquard pencil skirt, she wore the same maroon hat she wore for her last red carpet appearance, but it worked much better on this occasion when styled with a matching coat.

Naomie Harris: While the coat-and-open-toe-sandals fashion police may not favour this look, I have to say I’m loving the chic combo of the velvet devore coat with the chartreuse velvet sandal. Did I say love? Yes, LOVE.

Melanie Laurent In Elie Saab Couture – ‘Aloft’ Berlin Film Festival Premiere

Melanie Laurent In Elie Saab Couture - 'Aloft' Berlin Film Festival PremiereMélanie Laurent joined Jennifer Connelly at the ‘Aloft’ premiere, held today (February 12) during the 64th Berlinale International Film Festival at the Berlinale Palast in Berlin, Germany.

The French actress was beautiful in blush, donning a rosy-nude Elie Saab Spring 2014 Couture confection. Subtle sparkle came via the beaded embellishment that was magically strewn across the belted gown.

She further enhanced the romantic entrance with a twisted, low ponytail ‘do, finishing the look with a light-pink lip.

Blushing beauty, or too one-note for your liking?

Melanie Laurent joined co-star Jennifer Connelly on the red carpet for the ‘Aloft’ photocall during the 64th Berlinale International Film Festival held at Grand Hyatt Hotel on Wednesday (February 12) in Berlin, Germany.

The French actress wore a modern, elegant ivory Maxime Simoëns Fall 2013 shirt dress cut with a girlish silhouette featuring a sheer yoke and sleeves, a detailed bodice and a dainty flared skirt.

I love how her frock is in total contrast to Jennifer’s look. I’m looking forward to them being a dynamic duo on the red carpet promoting this movie.

Python pumps and a chic updo completed her look.

Melanie Laurent joined model Karolina Kurkova and Adriana Lima for the IWC ‘Inside The Wave’ Gala event during the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) 2014 at Palexpo on Tuesday (January 21) in Geneva, Switzerland.

The French actress wore a strapless Maxime Simoëns Fall 2013 navy-blue gown with a fitted bodice and ball-skirt which was styled with a diamond necklace and mandatory IWC timepiece.

I would’ve liked to have seen someone taller wearing this gown. The skirt is somewhat overwhelming her.

Front Row @ Christian Dior Fall 2013

Dior Front Row 1

A group of bold-named beauties held court at Christian Dior’s Fall 2013 presentation to see Raf Simons’ arty collection in Paris on Friday afternoon. While none were as dramatically dressed as fellow show-goer Ulyana Sergeenko, they still impressed with top-to-toe looks from the designer.

Marion Cotillard: The French actress played it safe in a simple black coat worn over a monochrome dress and paired with black tights and pointy stilettos. The one perk that kept this look interesting to me; the adorable over-the-shoulder box handbag.

Olivia Palermo: Stepping out in a dress from Dior’s Spring 2013 collection, Olivia worked the stripes and the fringe to her advantage. She kept warm with a black overcoat that featured yet another trend: fur. I loved her bright matte red lip and the flash of patent lavender on her shoe.

Anna Dello Russo: Always willing to break the style rule book, Vogue Japan’s editor-at-large was the only one who eschewed Dior. Instead, she took fur to the max in her Fendi number, ripped right off the Fall 2013 runway. The result? An interesting mix of primitive and punk with a techno edge. Her fuzzy clutch was just as “hair”-raising.

Front Row @ Burberry Prorsum Fall 2013

Burberry Fall 2013 Front Row

As is customary, quite the coterie of starlets stylishly resided on Burberry Prorsum’s front row to see just what Christopher Bailey had in store for Fall 2013; a collection he titled “Trench Kisses, A Collection of Classics and Christine Keeler.” While it was hard to compete with the designer’s gorgeous runway heroines, many of these cool-girl guests rocked their Burberry best at London’s Kensington Gardens on Monday afternoon and gave the models a good run.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley: The British model and actress broke out a sleek coral-red pantsuit for her front-row seat at the show. Was it mannish? Yes. But with the slim fit and the impeccable tailoring, no to mention Rosie’s voluminous waves, she looked like she just stepped off the runway herself.

Freida Pinto: Opting for a cooler palette of jewel tones, the actress wore a dark sapphire corset and emerald green trouser from Burberry Prorsum’s colour-saturated Spring 2013 collection. Instead of the cropped biker jacket originally featured on the catwalk, Freida added a black sash detail to the peplum waist of the top. Without any accessories on this look, I would have at least liked to see the added zest of the runway’s golden yellow shoe. But she played off the black with her peep-toe wedge.

Rita Ora: We can always count on this British songstress to pump up the volume with her chameleon-like style. Here, she also went for a menswear-inspired statement with a navy suit that kept an edge with its ’80s slouch and rolled-up sleeves, paired back to stacks of colourful bangles, a “foxy” chain necklace and a T-shirt that playfully illustrated Rita’s new British BFF and model of the moment, “Queen” Cara Delevingne. The white version of those peep-toe wedges also made an appearance, as did a modernized bouffant-style ‘do.
