Gucci Host The Screening of James Franco’s Documentary Film ‘The Director’

Gucci Host The Screening of James Franco's Documentary Film 'The Director'

Gucci hosted a private screening of James Franco’s documentary film ‘The Director’ held at the Royal Monceau Hotel in Paris, France on Wednesday (January 22).

Florence Welch: The singer wore a Gucci Spring 2014 black silk-chiffon kaftan (no surprises there) featuring metallic-purple inserts and bronze-and-blue sequin embroidery, worn over a black silk blouse and sheer black palazzo pants. Gucci accessories including a black plexiglass clutch and black suede platform sandals complemented her look, with a rouge lip colour and a braided updo providing the finishing touches.

Miroslava Duma: The pint-sized fashionista wore a Gucci Resort 2014 liquid-gold lamé jacket with a matching tunic and loose-fitting trousers, with a pair of brown leather Gucci platform sandals which aren’t that visible due to the extraordinary length of her pants.

Joan Smalls: The stunning model, who has fronted many campaigns for the brand, wore a Gucci Spring 2014 black spaghetti-strap plunging wrap dress with the signature bralet style, adding a black Gucci clutch and a pair of Gucci python lamé-and-suede sandals.

Miroslava Duma Loves Her…Charlotte Olympia ‘Time Piece’ Clutch

Miroslava Duma Loves Her Charlotte Olympia 'Time Piece' Clutch

While in Paris, Miroslava Duma’s front-row companion has been her Charlotte Olympia ‘Timepiece’ clutch bag, as previously worn by Diane Kruger.

I love how the quirky bag adds a chic yet offbeat touch to each of her looks, whether it’s standing out against a bright-yellow ensemble, complementing her white Valentino ensemble or blending well with a houndstooth coat or leather coat.

This perspex box clutch, which features a clock face and gold-tone gear latch that will truly stand the test of time, is accented with a gold-chain shoulder strap.

Who Wore Valentino Better…Miroslava Duma or Golshifteh Farahani?

Who Wore Valentino Better Miroslava Duma or Golshifteh Farahani

Miroslava Duma wore this electric-blue Valentino wool dress with scalloped detailing when she took her front row seat during the Valentino Fall 2013 Couture show back in July.

Even with the pop of red to the lips, the overall styling was too sombre for my taste and by her standards.

Golshifteh Farahani gave this dress a second run out not long after while attending the photocall for the 2013 Venice Film Festival.

Her styling wasn’t great either, adding silver Roger Vivier Virgule ‘Comma’ pumps and a blue Roger Vivier bag, but it’s much preferred over Miroslava’s so Golshifteh wins for me.

Christian Dior Fall 2013 Moscow Show

Christian Dior Fall 2013 Moscow Show

Raf Simons presented his Christian Dior Fall 2013 collection to the women of Russia yesterday.

Natalia Vodianova: Russia’s first lady of fashion was of course in attendance, wearing a pretty pink Dior double-breasted pant suit with a Lady Dior bag, white sandals and signature barely there makeup.

Miroslava Duma: The fashion editor, who recently returned from Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week, wasn’t showing any fashion week fatigue, looking lovely in her second Dior Resort 2014 dress, which ironically supersedes the Fall 2013 collection she was probably watching for the second time. Her colourful panelled and black-lace sleeveless dress was styled with black pumps with blue toe-caps and a red clutch. You may remember that Charlene, Princess of Monaco wore this same dress almost immediately after it was presented on the runway with a blue-lace panel.

Ravshana Kurkova: There were many other socialites who attended this event, but Ravshana caught my eye. She styled her Dior Pre-Fall 2013 hoop skirt – which we’ve seen three times in coral and once in blue – with a Peter Pilotto Resort 2013 yellow sleeveless jacquard-silk blouse with swirling sequin embellishments and a contrasting white collar (seen on Jada Pinkett-Smith). Since many of us are fatigued by this skirt already, I really appreciate the way she refreshed this look, especially with those delightful yellow sandals.

Who Was Your Best Dressed At Couture Week?

Who Was Your Best Dressed At Couture Week

Two ladies stood head and shoulders above all the fashionistas in the front row of Haute Couture fashion week: Miroslava Duma and Pace Wu.

The petite Russian fashion editor gave us an array of colourful looks ranging from a mini dress from Camilla and Marc, to a colourful Dior frock, denim shorts paired with a smart Chanel jacket, a sexy Jason Wu two-piece look, a flirty floral frock, and a sophisticated Fendi ensemble.

Pace Wu kept to a very neutral colour palette during the week, wearing white or nude frocks, starting with a fairytale-like Giambattista Valli strapless Couture gown and progressing through a ladylike Ulyana Sergeenko Couture frock, a one-shoulder Lanvin dress, a sheer Elie Saab dress and a ruffled Viktor & Rolf gown. The only other colour she opted for was a blue Ulyana Sergeenko gown with a familiar neckline.

Looking back, I love the variety of colour and the daring looks displayed by Miroslava, so she takes the crown for Couture Week Queen.

Fendi Opening Party & ‘The Glory Of Water’, Karl Lagerfeld’s Exhibition Preview

Fendi Opening Party & 'The Glory Of Water', Karl Lagerfeld's Exhibition Preview

Fendi held a party on Avenue Montaigne in Paris, France to celebrate the opening of a new store, which was followed by ‘The Glory Of Water’, Karl Lagerfeld’s exhibition preview yesterday evening.

Miroslava Duma: The fashion editor, who had attended the Elie Saab and Valentino shows earlier in the day, showed the brand some love by wearing brown leather culottes from their Spring 2013 collection with a taupe sleeveless silk top and strappy sandals. I love the addition of the quirky Fendi tri-colour cube clutch to add a fun talking-point piece to her sophisticated look. A hot-red lip colour and her favourite necklace provided the finishing touches.

Naomie Harris: Opting for a sculptural Fendi frock, the British actress donned a white texturized sleeveless dress with a central slit and peplum detail. Continuing her love for ankle boots, which I first noticed during her ‘Skyfall’ promo tour, she wore black Fendi patent-leather peep-toes with a white rubber pyramid-spiked heel, with a black Edie Parker ‘Jean’ clutch completing her look. Naomi has pretty much stuck to a black-and-white colour palette while attending events during Couture Week. Is it starting to get stale for you? I do not like anything here. The dress is too fussy and the shoes just don’t work.
