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.

Nicole Richie In Roberto Cavalli – 2013 Elton John AIDS Foundation Oscars Party

Nicole Richie In Roberto Cavalli - 2013 Vanity Fair Party Like Natalie Portman and Diane Kruger, Nicole Richie worked black-and-white to her advantage, when she attended the 2013 Elton John AIDS Foundation Oscars party, hosted on Sunday night in West Hollywood.

The starlet and designer took the plunge in a Roberto Cavalli gown.

I have to say it is nice to see a Cavalli number on the red carpet that isn’t peppered with paillettes, sparkly studs and over-the-top panache.

This minimalistic little number was just sexy enough to be dangerous, with that V-neck and those black racing stripes than ran across the shoulder and down the side.

Nicole accessorized with a demure necklace and a brilliant candy-apple-red House of Harlow 1960 ‘Marley’ clutch.

Her long, wavy bob and a nude lippie completed this mod look.

Elle’s Women In Television Celebration

Elle’s Women in Television Celebration

Elle’s Women in Television Celebration was hosted by the editor-in-chief Robin Myers at Soho House in West Hollywood, California yesterday evening.

Kiernan Shipka: Wearing a pretty pink embellished frock, the actress styled her look with Rupert Sanderson silver mirrored ‘Flare’ sandals and Kwiat jewels.

Ellie Kemper: J’adore Ellie’s Giorgio Armani strapless midnight-blue dress. It’s the magpie in me which is instantly drawn to this delightful embellished dress with a tulle overlay. A Kotur clutch and silver Rupert Sanderson ‘Jacoba’ peep-toe sandals showed off her red manicure.

Nicole Richie: After tweeting an Instagram picture of herself getting her hair cut two days ago, Nicole showcased the final results at the event. Repping her brand by accessorizing with House of Harlow accessories, the TV star kept her look simple, wearing a dove-grey zipper dress.

Nicole Richie In Naeem Khan - 2013 Golden Globe Awards

Nicole Richie gave me goosebumps when she took to the red carpet this evening for the 2013 Golden Globe Awards held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California.

The ‘Fashion Star’ judge was radiant wearing a Naeem Khan Spring 2013 pale blue floral embroidered and beaded jewel neckline gown.

On a cold January evening, she wisely opted for long sleeves, styling her look with a House of Harlow fringed bag, which is a nod to her wild side.

Veronica Lake waves, H.Stern Stars stud earrings and flawless makeup completed her look.

If this was not her best red carpet look ever, then it’s in the top two.

The ‘Winter Kate’ and ‘House of Harlow’ designer, who also is a board member for the organisation with Jessica, also wore a pink gown.

She opted for a sexier look wearing a Lorena Sarbu Fall 2012 blush-pink gown with a deep-plunging back and a train.

An ivory House of Harlow clutch, a barely seen House of Harlow ring and a stack of bracelets accessorized her über chic retro look, complete with ‘20s-inspired wavy hairstyle, smoky eyes and a pink lip colour.

Nicole Richie In Azzaro – The Ellen DeGeneres Show

Nicole Richie made a guest appearance on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ yesterday to promote her new fragrance, ‘Nicole by Nicole Richie’.

She looked great wearing an Azzaro Fall 2012 jumpsuit.

The black haltered jumpsuit with a sheer yoke was styled with black pumps, silver jewels and a beautiful silver brooch holding one side of her hair back.

The designer talked to Ellen about her family’s latest addition – a German Shepherd puppy named Ero – plus she was also tested by Ellen to see if she could identify her fragrance off the chest of some hunky, shirtless models.

It’s a tough job, but someone’s gotta do it.
