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.

Michael Kors Dinner Hosted By Vogue

Michael Kors Dinner 1

There were many more stars who joined Rosie Huntington-Whiteley for the Michael Kors dinner hosted by Vogue in London yesterday evening.

Samantha Barks: The British actress strikes a pose wearing a sexy black bodysuit with an open back with black leggings from Michael Kors’ Pre-Fall 2013 collection, which she accented with a black leather corset-like belt. The smouldering brunette beauty completed her look with a black ‘Gia’ clutch and ‘Barbara’ heels from the Fall 2013 collection.

Daisy Lowe: The beautiful British model channelled her inner screen siren, wearing a Michael Kors Pre-Fall 2013 black lace dress with a full skirt. It’s the styling which gives the look a classic retro feel.

Yasmin Le Bon: The supermodel was just one of the attendees wearing stripes from Michael Kors Spring 2013 collection. Her midnight-blue-and-green striped shell-and-sequin pleat skirt, which was styled with green strappy sandals, was recently worn by Hilary Rhoda at the New York dinner party.

Style Spotlight – Miroslava Duma

Miroslava Duma is the daughter of senator Vasily Duma but has made her own name by taking massive strides into the world of fashion. She is the darling of the Russian fashion scene, an It Girl with a wardrobe to die for.

Best known for coveted collection of Hermes bags and Louis Vuitton scarves, Miroslava never puts a fashion foot wrong. She can be seen at all the fashion shows and has a loyal (and some might say obsessive) online following.

Miroslava started at Harper’s Bazaar, Russia and now contributes to L’Officiel Russia, Glamour Russia, the style section at Russian OK Magazine, and Russian Tatler.

Miroslava favourites used to be Missoni and Miu Miu, but she now admits to favouring designers such as Prada, Bottega Veneta, YSL, Lanvin, Alexander Wang and Russian designer Vika Gazinskaya.

As if she didn’t make us green with envy enough already she is also a young humanitarian and founder of the charity, “Mira’s Planet”.

Her style has just the right amount of edge to it and she does dressed down chic so well. She styles herself immaculately without looking too “put together”.

Take a look at some of her best ensembles below.
