Chanel Fall 2013 Couture Show Front Row

Chanel Front Row 1

Chanel’s Fall 2013 Couture show took place at the Grand Palais in Paris, France this morning, with celebrity guests from all over the world taking seats in the front row.

Rihanna: The singer, who was out at dinner in Paris last night, wore a full-length Chanel cardigan from the Resort 2014 collection, making full use of the opening, which acted as a slit to show off her pins. As for the plunge, she decorated it with an array of Chanel pearl necklaces – just not enough to cover that tattoo on her chest. The rest of her accessories included a cream quilted vanity case and cream pumps with a black toecap, both of which are from the Chanel Resort 2014 collection. Even though this look could be considered just-rolled-out-of-bed, I have to say she makes it work for her.

Kristen Stewart: The ‘Twilight’ actress has sat front row at many shows for Balenciaga, but this was her first show during Couture week. No one should be surprised she opted for the shortest shorts Chanel have ever produced, teaming them with a white double-breasted jacket from Chanel’s Resort 2014 collection. Her menswear-inspired look was styled with black leather fingerless gloves, chain bracelets, Jean-Michel Cazabat Evangelina pumps, a slicked-back ponytail and smoky eyes. Love her or loathe her, she totally nailed this look. It’s everything I would expect from Kristen, with an extra dose of attitude.

Clemence Poesy: The French actress selected a Chanel Spring 2013 boucle skirt suit inspired by a classic tuxedo. While it’s an interesting look, it feels weighty. I would’ve loved Clemence to have selected something from the Resort 2014 collection.

Miroslava Duma In Stella McCartney – Giambattista Valli Fall 2013 Couture Show

Miroslava Duma In Stella McCartney - Giambattista Valli Fall 2013 Couture Show

Miroslava Duma continues to impress during Haute Couture Paris Fashion Week.

This time she was front row at the Giambattista Valli Fall 2013 Couture show, which was held at the Grand Palais in Paris, France on Monday evening.

The fashion editor no doubt stood out wearing a dual-colour white-and-neon-orange Stella McCartney Spring 2013 frock.

In order to protect her modesty, Miroslava wore a white bandeau under her dress which is clearly visible via the sheer panel. I wish this was a close match to her skin tone or covered the entire sheer panel altogether as I find it rather distracting, nullifying the overall effect of the dress.

Those peach pumps which you didn’t like with her Camilla and Marc look, plus a Stella McCartney wooden clutch, completed her look.

So far, this is my least favourite look from the usually flawless FROWer.

Miroslava Duma In Camilla and Marc – Atelier Versace Fall 2013 Front Row

Miroslava Duma In Camilla and Marc - Atelier Versace Fall 2013 Front Row

Miroslava Duma also stopped by the Atelier Versace Fall 2013 runway spectacle on Sunday, hosted during Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week in France.

Unlike some of the other front-row lovelies, this fashion girl didn’t wear Versace to the show. Instead, she clothed her petite frame in a geometrically structured Camilla and Marc Spring 2013 frock.

It was a bold way to go, with the patterned, oversized patchwork pieces that were pasted randomly onto the cerulean-blue skirt. I have a feeling some will find this flirty look utterly thrilling, and others, not so much.

The magenta print motif continued onto the shoulders of the white collared bodice, but Mira threw another colour into the mix with her selection of peach pumps.

Minimal makeup and a breezy, loose bob completed her summery entrance.

Christian Dior Fall 2013 Couture Front Row

Christian Dior Fall 2013 Couture Front Row

Several stars arrived at the Hotel Des Invalides in Paris, France this afternoon for the Christian Dior Fall 2013 Couture presentation, with Marion Cotillard as the surprise absentee.

Jennifer Lawrence: The Oscar-winning actress and current face of Miss Dior was of course front row, getting a first look at her next red carpet look, no doubt. Jennifer selected a printed pastel-metallic guipure top with charcoal wool trousers with a stripe down one side and pleats down the other from the Resort 2014 collection. Black Dior sunglasses, shoes and a Dior fine jewelry ‘Bois de Rose’ bracelet. You are expecting me to say that I dislike the black pumps; well, I am too busy saving all my dislike for those pants. The colour, the style, the pleats: nothing about them work for me.

Miroslava Duma: After a pretty lacklustre weekend fashion-wise, Miroslava finally gives me a red carpet look I can love. The fashion editor selected a Dior Resort 2014 ivory bustier dress with blue-, orange- and pink-striped panels, which she styled with an Hermes black bag and lust-worthy blue pumps.

Olivia Palermo: The socialite, who is a regular in the front row at Dior, wore a full Dior look. Usually she marches to the beat of her own drum and will wear even high-street looks like Zara and Topshop to Fashion week; on this occasion she wore a Dior white jacket paired with a pink-and-blue organza skirt with all-Dior accessories, including cuffs on both wrists, an embellished belt, and a white clutch. I love everything bar the skirt. I almost wish the jacket was long enough to pass off as a dress.

Who Wore Michael Kors Better…Cat Deeley, Doutzen Kros, Miroslava Duma, Yasmin le Bon or Nieves Alvarez?

Who Wore Michael Kors Better Cat Deeley, Doutzen Kros, Miroslava Duma, Yasmin le Bon or Nieves Alvarez

The navy-and-blue Michael Kors Spring 2013 look, featuring a crop top and pleated skirt, was so popular it made five appearances on the red carpet.

It was Cat Deeley who kick-started the obsession with this look when she wore it to the ‘Dukes of Melrose’ launch party back in March styled with a Mulberry bag.

A month later, model Doutzen Kros looked considerably more comfortable in her look which she wore to the Michael Kors and the United Nations World Food Programme dinner, styled with black Michael Kors accessories.

Fashion editor Miroslava Duma styled her look with PVC and black pumps at the Michael Kors London dinner party.

Yasmin le Bon wore the look with a longer top while hosting the Vogue Festival with the designer himself, and finally, Nieves Alvarez wore the much worn look to a Johnsons event in Madrid last month with Christian Louboutin boots, which didn’t work with her look.

Doutzen Kros wins for me as I prefer her overall styling. Cat was my least favourite as she looked the least comfortable rocking the crop top.
