Paris Fashion Week Front Row Trend: Black and White

Black and White Celebrity Trend

What’s black and white and seated front row at Paris fashion week?

Celebs, of course.

One of the major trends which reigned supreme at the Spring 2013 shows was black and white, ranging from mod 60s looks at Prada and Louis Vuitton, stripes at Marc Jacobs, Dolce & Gabbana and Michael Kors, and classic pieces at Chanel, Ralph Lauren and Saint Laurent, with Alexander Wang, Balmain, Narciso Rodriguez, Victoria Beckham, Jil Sander, and Moschino also sending solid, patterned or striped black-and-white looks down the runway.

The celebs who have championed this trend this week were Nicole Richie, who attended both the Stella McCartney and Givenchy shows in black and white, and Jessica Alba, who also rocked the trend at Stella McCartney and Valentino.

Chanel’s front row is one place we shouldn’t be surprised to see celebs showcasing this Spring 2013 trend. The elegant Jessica Chastain wore a white ruffled blouse with a pencil skirt, while Milla Jovovich rocked a masculine black-and-white pant look.

Usually one to start trends, Anna Dello Russo also took to the front row at Chanel wearing a playful black-and-white look, which would’ve been better suited to Elle Fanning, methinks.

The best thing about this trend is that it’s easy to wear and affordable. You can rock it with the simplest staples, like vest tops, tees, skirts, pants and dresses.

Stripes might be the hardest look to rock; take it too far and you could end up looking like you are wearing prison stripes.

Milla Jovovich In Armani Privé – 2012 DreamBall Gala

Milla Jovovich took to the red carpet at Cipriani 42nd Street to attend the 2012 DreamBall Gala in New York City yesterday evening.

The ‘Resident Evil: Retribution’ actress glided down the red carpet wearing an Armani Privé Spring 2012 gown.

Her silk strapless gown with a fitted bodice and voluminous skirt may be from the Spring 2012 collection, but the silver, green and black abstract reptilian-print gown is perfect for Fall.

A big gown needs a big personality and Milla is just the woman for the job.

She styled her look with green chain-accented earrings (which cheapen the look) and a black satin clutch.

Wavy side-swept locks and a shimmering nude lip colour completed her look.

Milla Jovovich In Reem Acra – ‘Resident Evil: Retribution’ Moscow Premiere

Milla Jovovich was spotted in Moscow last night for the ‘Resident Evil: Retribution’ premiere.

The actress and model chose a strapless Reem Acra dress for the event.

I’m torn. Although the fit is beautiful, the print is either awesome or what happens when you mix up a Jackson Pollock with a dog’s dinner.

The accessories are great on their own – I especially like the Edie Parker clutch – but I’m not sure they should all be put together.

The necklace is fighting a battle with the dress – and losing. Perhaps just the earrings and the dress would’ve been just right? Meanwhile, the toe-peep platforms look more picnic in the park than film premiere.

The soft curls and pretty berry lip completed the look.

Milla Jovovich In ERIN by Erin Fetherston – ‘Resident Evil: Retribution’ Tokyo Premiere

Milla Jovovich attended the world premiere of her latest movie ‘Resident Evil: Retribution’, held at Roppongi Hills in Tokyo, Japan, yesterday evening.

The actress donned a figure-hugging ERIN by Erin Fetherston Fall 2012 bandage dress with an oversized rose brocade bow accent.

Her YSL ‘Tribute’ pumps are a bit of a snooze, but she makes up for it by carrying a standout gold embellished Prada clutch and a bold red lip colour.

Styling her hair into her signature flipped ‘do, Milla completed her look with some sparkly statement jewels.

Do you like this look…or do you find it too tame for the usually extravagant actress?

Milla Jovovich For FLARE October 2012

Milla Jovovich is the October 2012 cover girl for Canada’s best-selling fashion magazine FLARE.

On the cover she wears a feminine navy Calvin Klein dress which was accessorized with statement jewellery including Fallon earrings, a CBD bangle and a Baccarat ring, whilst inside we see her wearing an edgier look from Peter Pilotto.

The model, mum and ‘Resident Evil: Retribution’ star talks about dealing with anxiety on set, her mother’s tough love, and finding love with her husband Paul W.S. Anderson.

On playing an action hero in ‘Resident Evil: Retribution’: “You have to spend the whole day in this state of perpetual fear. The fight-or-flight instinct is in overdrive. It was a headache! Literally, my head would be pounding at the end of the day!”

On how she survived childhood bullying: “I knew it was so temporary. School is going to disappear, and there’s a whole future out there.”

On how her mother scared her straight: “I would always hear her whispering in my ear, ‘I’ll kill myself if anything happens to you!’ So, I kind of knew when to say no; when not to continue the party, because I whole-heartedly believed that if anything had happened to me my mom would have killed herself.”

On finding love with director Paul W.S. Anderson on the ‘Resident Evil’ franchise: “It kind of seems typical, but there’s no one else that you talk with as much as the director. If you’re going to fall in love, it’s hard for it not to happen with that person—the one you’re spending the most time with, and having the most interesting conversations. I think it would have been challenging for me to have made the movies and had a boyfriend that wasn’t working on the film too, because you get so into it.”

Milla Jovovich In Arzu Kaprol – Mandarin Oriental Bodrum Opening

Milla Jovovich recently attended the opening of the Mandarin Oriental Bodrum in Turkey.

The ‘Resident Evil’ actress wore a Spring 2012 gown by Turkish designer Arzu Kaprol.

Her strapless printed dress with a gathered detail along the bust was simply styled with a gold clutch and red-hot lips.

I love the dress on the model, mostly because of how the thin ribbons managed to give the gown some shape.

Unfortunately that didn’t translate so well off the runway.
