Front Row @ Louis Vuitton Spring 2018

Many of the same stars who were at the opening of the Louis Vuitton boutique were seated front row at the Louis Vuitton Spring 2018 show the next day on Tuesday (October 3) during Paris Fashion Week. So, you will be excused if you’re already experiencing a certain kind of déjà vu.

Here, the lineup of the LV looks—take two—from the brand’s biggest fans.

Cate Blanchett: I had a slightly easier time embracing this directional look from Cate, as opposed to her more disjointed offering the day before. Perhaps some elements still seemed a bit forced, but no one can say this wasn’t a mullet-esque look—warrior-chic on the top, and business on the bottom.

Julianne Moore: Stepping away from the colour black, the actress was radiant in this rich, jade-green dress that had its own party happening at the back with the long fringe detail.

Alicia Vikander: Yet again, Alicia’s effortlessly chic look took top billing. In this case, it was her accessories—the handbag and booties, in particular—that really elevated this all-black ensemble.

Front Row @ Valentino Spring 2018

The Valentino Spring 2018 front row had no shortage of chic beauties eager to take in designer Pierpaolo Piccioli’s take on elegant whimsy during Paris Fashion Week on Sunday (October 1).

Natalia Vodianova: Her previous less-is-more M.O. at the Givenchy show was replaced by a more-is-more look in this Valentino Resort 2018 keyhole frock, resplendent with folk patterning. Glittery Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Luce’ ankle boots and a statement earring ensured this was no ordinary maxi dress.

Marion Cotillard: Offering up her blonde ’do in a punk faux-hawk of sorts, the actress donned a Valentino Resort 2018 ensemble that merged menswear-inspired pinstripes, sporty track pants, and feminine, sheer lace. What united the motley collection of trends was the sophisticated colour palette, to which the kelly-green, embellished sandals simply did not make sense.

Izabel Goulart: I loved the romantic simplicity and feminine seduction of this Valentino Resort 2018 plisse dress, which flowed so beautifully and effortlessly around Izabel’s silhouette as she walked. Here, the green accents made perfect sense in the subtle piping at the neckline, the bow at the waist, and her matching clutch.

Front Row @ Givenchy Spring 2018

Paris Fashion Week saw a host of pretties on the front row at the Givenchy Spring 2018 show on Sunday (October 1) to witness designer Clare Waight Keller’s first collection for the label.

Lily Collins: Angelic with an edge. That’s exactly how I’d describe Lily’s diaphanous white lace dress punctuated by the black under-straps and mod white booties. I did find myself wishing for a more streamlined, barely-there black sandal here.

Cate Blanchett: Queen Cate was back in all her glory in this impossibly chic suiting ensemble. I love how the cropped proportions and the midnight-blue lip motif on the jacket—coupled with her pendant necklaces—brought a sense of unconventional yet effortless sophistication to the look.

Fan Bingbing: Despite its all-white palette, there was a dramatic allure that permeated this trench dress that saw Fan continuing to step across the line of her go-to, princess-and-platform styles. She balanced the subtle mystique of the sheer sleeves, which was echoed in the sheer gloves and sheer pants, with her sleek bun and bold red lip.

Front Row @ Christian Dior Spring 2018

As could be expected, the Christian Dior Spring 2018 fashion show brought together a number of beautiful femmes to celebrate the new collection during Paris Fashion Week on Tuesday (September 26).

Natalia Vodianova: While we’ve seen the signature ‘ChristianDior’ straps on dresses before, I loved the beaded variation employed on this Dior orange feather dress that delivered the best of both worlds between whimsy and elegance. Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Janice’ black suede corset booties and a black velvet ‘Le Coeur de Dior’ bag rounded out the look with an edgy-Victorian, fall spirit.

Emily Ratajkowski: Opting to not wear Dior, Emily donned a Brock Collection Resort 2018 dress that walked the line between romantic softness and seduction with its corsetry bodice and thigh-high slit. The look was styled with Altuzarra D’Orsay canvas pumps.

Alexa Chung: The writing was on the walls—or the sweater and skirt—with this Christian Dior ‘Lascaux’ print ensemble that was inspired by the Paleolithic cave paintings in Lascaux, France. She also wore Dior black booties and a black glazed calfskin ‘C’est Dior’ flap bag to complete the artsy, casually sophisticated statement.

Natalia Vodianova In Christian Dior – Christian Dior 70 years of Creation ‘I Feel Blue’ Exhibition

Natalia Vodianova was on hand to help Christian Dior celebrate ’70 years of Creation’ at the Galeries Lafayette Haussmann on Tuesday (September 19) in Paris, France.

For those of you feeling very much o.v.e.r the Dior sheer dresses and logo underwear, this Fall 2017 look should come as a huge breath of fresh air.

Natalia’s look give us an opportunity to marvel at the Dior tailoring which embodies clean structural finesse.

Sharp, yet still utterly feminine, I love the festive nature of the look which was enhanced by the red velvet pumps.

One for the BDOTW list methinks.
