Gucci Host The Screening of James Franco's Documentary Film 'The Director'

Gucci hosted a private screening of James Franco’s documentary film ‘The Director’ held at the Royal Monceau Hotel in Paris, France on Wednesday (January 22).

Florence Welch: The singer wore a Gucci Spring 2014 black silk-chiffon kaftan (no surprises there) featuring metallic-purple inserts and bronze-and-blue sequin embroidery, worn over a black silk blouse and sheer black palazzo pants. Gucci accessories including a black plexiglass clutch and black suede platform sandals complemented her look, with a rouge lip colour and a braided updo providing the finishing touches.

Miroslava Duma: The pint-sized fashionista wore a Gucci Resort 2014 liquid-gold lamé jacket with a matching tunic and loose-fitting trousers, with a pair of brown leather Gucci platform sandals which aren’t that visible due to the extraordinary length of her pants.

Joan Smalls: The stunning model, who has fronted many campaigns for the brand, wore a Gucci Spring 2014 black spaghetti-strap plunging wrap dress with the signature bralet style, adding a black Gucci clutch and a pair of Gucci python lamé-and-suede sandals.

Elie Saab Spring 2014 Couture Front Row

There was as much beauty in the front row as there was on the runway on Wednesday afternoon for the Elie Saab Spring 2014 Couture show held in Paris during Couture week.

Paz Vega: The Spanish actress, who has been spending a lot of time stateside, wore a very ladylike Elie Saab frock with lace inserts and a chic peplum waist. Styled with a complementary Elie Saab clutch, she gave her look a fall-like touch by adding burgundy pumps to her look.

Olga Kurylenko: Fellow red carpet regular Olga was also in the front row, opting for a flirtier look, donning a green lace-accented frock styled with matching Elie Saab sandals and the same gold Elie Saab clutch that I also own. A simple ponytail and a watermelon-pink lip colour completed her look.

Chanel Spring 2014 Couture Front Row

The Chanel Spring 2014 Couture show took place during Paris Fashion Week today in France. The front row attendees were treated to a show which looked like the designer had sought inspiration from his Spring 2009 Couture collection.

Tilda Swinton: The only person who really caught my eye in the front row was Tilda. The face of Chanel’s Pre-Fall 2013 collection opted for a Chanel Pre-Fall 2014 look, wearing a cashmere star-print sweater with a colourful fringed knit skirt, styled with an American flag scarf, knit tights and two-tone Chanel pumps. Coming from Scotland, she knows a thing or two about dressing for the current season.

Lily Allen: The Brit singer was also perched in the front row, opting for simple staples, jazzing up her look with a red-white-and-blue tweed coat, a colourful headpiece and a Chanel quilted shoulder bag. Adding yet more colour to her look, she opted for smoked blue eye makeup. Between Lupita Nyong’o, Keira Knightley and now Lily, I’m thinking I need to step up my eye-makeup game this season.

Olga Kurylenko: The actress went from temptress at Dior to quite pedestrian at Chanel. If it weren’t for the glossy red lips and those studded cuffs, I wouldn’t have even noticed this look.

Christian Dior Spring 2014 Couture Front Row 2

Spring 2014 Couture Fashion Week continued today with a host of lovely ladies taking to the front row for Christian Dior’s show.

Kate Bosworth: The actress, who arrived with her husband Michael Polish, wore a Dior navy-blue-and-silver metallic embroidered top and skirt, which she styled with bi-colour Dior shoes. The look is very simple, letting the pieces speak for themselves without over-accessorizing, but a part of me feels like this look would be better suited to Chloe Grace Moretz.

Allison Williams: While her look sported many of the emblems we saw on the Christian Dior Spring 2014 runway, there was nothing back-to-school about her super-chic look. Following Diane Kruger’s trendy camel-coat-wearing lead, the actress also slung her Dior wool coat over her shoulder while wearing a burgundy knit top with burgundy leather pants. Opting for barely any makeup, she styled her look with an emblem-emblazoned ‘Lady Dior’ bag and bi-colour Dior shoes.

Olga Kurylenko: The Ukraine-born actress gave us the bombshell moment, looking super sexy wearing a Dior embroidered-and-printed pastel-metallic guipure top with a high-waist navy wool skirt. While I would lose the ivory-and-black Dior clutch, I would kill for those Dior multi-coloured pumps.

Isabel Marant pour H&M Launch Party

With the Isabel Marant pour H&M collection due to hit stores on November 14, the brand hosted a party in Paris, France to celebrate the impending launch at the Tennis Club De Paris yesterday evening.

Freida Pinto: The Indian beauty’s head-to-toe Isabel Marant pour H&M look is probably the most quintessential, featuring the brand’s signature printed and embellished trophy jacket (£199.99), silk black-and-white tiered skirt (£39.99) and slouchy boots (£149.99) to complete her bohemian-chic look. At the party she said “This is the second H&M collaboration that I’ve attended. I feel it’s important to collaborate with designers who young girls aspire to, but it’s also for girls like me who love shopping at H&M – to make fashion that is not just beautiful and classy but also affordable.”

Olga Kurylenko: The Ukrainian-born actress donned a metallic mini dress (£69.99) featuring three-quarter-length sleeves and a knotted, gathered drape detail at the bodice. She added a retro spin to her look with marcel waves, with a hot-red pout completing her look.

January Jones: While Freida and Olga nailed their looks, January looked a bit lost; her look, which included a white embossed top (£59.99) and printed pants (£59.99), was styled with a sloppy topknot which didn’t quite exude the cool Parisian it-girl vibe the brand is famed for. She said, “I think it’s really cool when a high-end designer does a collaboration like this and makes their designs easily accessible to everyone. The pieces are awesome – and coveted. I know many people that will be waiting in line on the 14th, it’s exciting.”

Do you have your eye on any of these pieces?

Will you be waiting in line on November 14?
