Front Row @ Elie Saab Spring 2012 Couture

Bérénice Bejo: The Oscar-nominated actress took her front-row seat at Elie Saab’s Spring 2012 Couture show yesterday following a succession of red carpet appearances wearing the designer’s threads. On this occasion she wore a raspberry fitted Resort 2012 dress with a ruffled detail on the hip and a plunging neckline. She accessorized with a matching clutch and black YSL sandals. As an Oscar nominee and considering her front-row appearance, I think it’s safe to say that she’s most definitely going to be wearing Elie Saab on February 26.

Olga Kurylenko: The Ukrainian actress donned a vibrant yellow Elie Saab Spring 2012 dress with lace panels on the front. Like the runway model she also paired her dress with matching sandals.

Sonam Kapoor: I have featured the Indian actress many times since Cannes Film Festival and I’m more entranced with her with every look. She has worn a variety of designers, but on this occasion she proudly represented her heritage wearing a traditional sari by Deepti Pruthi. This look was paired with an Elie Saab lace shrug and bejewelled flats. When she swept into the venue, everyone near me was whispering, “Who’s that?” I told those sitting near me that she’s the “Angelina Jolie of India”. I’m not entirely sure if that is true, but she did command your attention much like Ms Jolie. I know I always say this, but she is even more beautiful in the flesh. She is also surprisingly tall, as most celebrities I meet are shorter than expected.

Who Wore Elie Saab Better? Beyonce Knowles or Olga Kurylenko

Beyonce Knowles visited the “Late Show With David Letterman” at the Ed Sullivan Theater back in April last year.

It was a time when she was obsessed with Elie Saab’s Fall 2009 fitted dresses.

Whilst meeting the crowds she wore a dove grey Elie Saab Fall 2009 dress paired with trademark large earrings, and white Toni Maticevski peep-toes with multi-coloured mini rosette detail on the back.

Olga Kurylenko wore the same dress last week when she attended the Elie Saab Spring 2010 Couture show at Palais de Chaillot in Paris.

The shoes totally kill this look for me, as they are so boring in comparison to B’s heels. Plus Bey fills this dress a lot better so she wins for me

She look so beautiful as the straps wrap about her body like a “mummy”.

She definitely in contention for BDOTW.

Dita Von Teese, Elsa Pataky and Olga Kurylenko Front Row @ Elie Saab Spring 2010 Couture

Dita Von Teese, Elsa Pataky and Olga Kurylenko were the guests of Elie Saab at his Spring 2010 Couture show earlier today.

Our hearts stopped when Dita walked in wearing an electric blue Elie Saab Fall 2009 plunging dress.

Stunning in pictures, jaw-dropping gorgeous in the flesh with not a single hair out of place. She makes me ache with her level of perfection.

Elsa opted for a short sassy red Spring 2010 belted dress with black strappy heels.

Olga is stunning in the flesh. She happily spoke to reporters as she made her way to her seat wearing an Elie Saab Fall 2009 dove grey dress.

I’m not crazy about her choice of heels, but when your face is that gorgeous who’s looking at your feet?

Vogue/Bvlgari Charity Reception

Olga Kurylenko looks tantalizingly sexy in her black Jasmine di Milo Spring 2010 mini dress, but once again her footwear lets her down.

Just because the dress was presented with them on the runway, that doesn’t make it a good look.

Is the wild child growing up?

Peaches Geldof looked very sophisticated wearing a Dolce & Gabbana ruched dress with black patent heels to this event.

She appears to have moved on from the plum hair colour she was sporting this summer, to this rich auburn colour which really brings out her baby blues.

Bonnie Wright wore a black v-neck leather dress, but it’s her Prada Fall 2009 studded heels which I found myself drooling over.

Alex Curran made the trip down from Liverpool to London support this charity event.

The stylish WAG looked beautiful wearing a Josh Goot printed mini dress with black Topshop ankle boots and a black clutch.

I love this print which we have seen on Little Boots, it’s hauntingly beautiful.

Nancy Dell’Olio wore a draped gold lame three-quarter sleeve Lanvin Pre-Fall 2009 dress, with single pouf shoulder which we’ve seen on Charlize Theron and Jenna Elfman.

Runway To 2010 Campari Calendar Cocktail Party – Olga Kurylenko In Valentino Couture

Welcome back to the red carpet Olga Kurylenko, we’ve missed you and here’s is a perfect example of why we’ve missed you.


This red turtleneck Valentino Spring 2009 Couture gown with a thigh-high split is not easy to pull off.

The colour is divine, the split is sexy, the structure and draping is exquisite.

There is nothing I do not love about this look, as I do my best to ignore the t-bar heels.

Yes red heels would have been too obvious, but the t-bar heels feel to fussy for such an amazing gown.

The 2010 Campari Cocktail Party was to celebrate the released of the ‘Campari Milano’ calendar in which Olga is the star.

The Ukrainian actress follows in the footsteps of Jessica Alba, Salma Hayek and Eva Mendes who have all featured in a Campari calendar.

Olga looks stunning in the 12 pictures, which see her wearing a variety of designers from Gucci to Valentino to Fendi.

Who Wore YSL Better? Olga Kurylenko or Julie Gayet

When Ukrainian actress Olga Kurylenko was promoting Quantum of Solace in Amsterdam, she wore this outstanding black bowed Yves Saint Laurent Resort 2009 fuchsia silk gown, which she complimented with matching fuchsia earrings, with an ivory teardrop.

French actress Julie Gayet wore the very same gown in black, to the Spring Fever premiere during Cannes Film Festival yesterday evening.

As elegant as Julie’s gown is, Olga’s fuchsia version is so much more interesting, vivid and vibrant, so she wins for me.
