Rosie Huntington-Whiteley & Nicole Richie In Balmain – Balmain LA Dinner Party

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley & Nicole Richie In Balmain - Balmain LA Dinner Party

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Nicole Richie attended a dinner party hosted by Balmain which was held at the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles, California on Thursday evening.
They were all, of course, wearing Balmain.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley: I kind of feel sorry for Rosie here as the Balmain Spring 2013 collection is not an easy one to pull off – even Zoe Saldana couldn’t get you to love it. The collection was an eyesore: a cropped padded-shouldered leather top with front-pocket detailing and an overworked multi-print flared mini skirt… I mean, really Olivier? This wouldn’t look great on anyone. I only like her fresh face and Balmain open-toe booties here.

Nicole Richie: The designer and ‘Fashion Star’ judge is my favourite here. Her Spring 2013 summery-hued frock with embroidered details was her perfect choice. Actually, I’m surprised the look didn’t overwhelm her as there is a lot going on.

Nicole Richie In Saint Laurent – AOL 2013 Digital Content NewFront

Nicole Richie In Saint Laurent - AOL 2013 Digital Content NewFront

Nicole Richie took to the red carpet for the AOL 2013 Digital Content NewFront in New York City on Tuesday evening.

The ‘Fashion Star’ judge wore a white Saint Laurent dress.

Thankfully not another one of the maxi dresses – lord knows we’ve seen enough of those courtesy of Salma Hayek, Miriam Yeung, Angelina Jolie, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Courtney Love and Lady Gaga.

Nicole selected a white funnel neck chain embellished cady dress which she paired with white Manolo Blahnik d’orsay pumps.

On paper I should dislike the look for the white pumps alone, but I find myself being totally charmed by this look which includes flawless hair and makeup. Nicole totally sells this look to me.

Does she sell it to you?

Nicole Richie In Emilio Pucci – Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Nicole Richie In Emilio Pucci - Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Nicole Richie made a guest appearance on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ which was taped in LA yesterday afternoon.

The ‘Fashion Star’ mentor, known for her boho-style, wore a sexy Emilio Pucci Fall 2013 jumpsuit.

Her glam 70s-style jumpsuit featured a waist nipping cummerbund and sheer chiffon inserts both at the front and running down the leg; showing off some major cleavage and a tattoo on her left hip.

You can’t help but take a second look at this risqué ensemble which she styled with a blue velvet Louboutins, a braid updo, oversized earrings and House of Harlow 1960 ‘Jude’ fringed clutch.

Nicole Richie In Helmut Lang, J Brand & Stella McCartney – The Today Show

Nicole Richie in Helmut Lang - The Today Show

Nicole Richie, who has also returned from Paris Fashion Week front row duty, was spotted out in New York City yesterday en route to the ‘Today’ show to promote the new season of ‘Fashion Star’.

Does her look qualify her as a fashion star? There is a lot going on here so let’s start from the top.

She wore a Helmut Lang Mongolian-fur jacket slung over her shoulders, which were bare as her Stella McCartney ‘Columbia’ fringe blouse was sleeveless.

J Brand’s ‘Super Skinny’ black leather pants gave her cool look a rock n’ roll edge, as did her House of Harlow circular sunglasses.

The rest of her accessories included snakeskin pumps and a tri-colour Fendi tote.

Take away the fringed top and we have a great look. With such a heavy, textural coat, the top feels a bit fussy.

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.

Black and White Celebrity Trend2

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.
