Front Row @ Valentino Spring 2018 Couture

The Valentino Spring 2018 Couture show was on Wednesday (January 24) during Paris Fashion Week, with a front row featuring plenty of Valentino beauties.

Kate Hudson: The actress has been serving up some sweet looks lately, and this Valentino Pre-Fall 2018 frock stay right in line with that girly vibe by virtue of its short length styled with dotted tights and platform shoes. Yet, her sleek hair and elegant earrings reflected the sophistication of the sculpted bodice, preventing the look from becoming too twee.

Shailene Woodley: While this Valentino Pre-Fall 2018 flared mini was certainly on the short side, I loved seeing Shailene have some flirty, youthful fun with fashion. The boots were the right way to wrap up this leopard-print dress—and even though they hit at mid-ankle, her legs still looked a mile long.

Lake Bell: Red was Lake’s colour du jour in this Valentino Spring 2018 number, where she fully committed to the hue from head to toe. It was undoubtedly striking despite its inherent quirkiness—and my wish that the poncho-style dress had a bit more shape.

Front Row @ Christian Dior Spring 2018 Couture

A couple of days after the Dior Homme show, more Dior-clad darlings descended on the Rodin Museum for the fashion house’s runway show, the first big one of Paris haute couture week on Monday (January 22).

Emily Blunt: Sleekly elegant styling was the only way to go for this ornately printed Christian Dior Pre-Fall 2018 frock, and Emily complied.

Annabelle Wallis: Statement shirts continue to be a relevant trend, and Annabelle’s fit the bill. I like how she styled it with the graphic jacket (which coincidentally reflected the show’s checquerboard set), high-waist, cropped trousers, and hat for a slice of Parisian rebel-chic.

Willow Smith: Perhaps taking a cue from the surrealist mood of the show in her white eye makeup, Willow offered a more girly perspective than we would expect from her urban-cool style in this sheer tulle gown juxtaposed with a tuxedo vest.

Introducing the L.K. Bennett x Preen Collection

Preen by Thornton Bregazzi and L.K. Bennett launch their first ever ready-to-wear collaboration today online and in selected L.K. Bennett stores.

Design duo Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi drew inspiration from the floral watercolours of Scottish artist Charles Rennie Mackintosh to create this timeless collection of luxury silk dresses, floral print skirts and soft knitwear. Rendered in a rich palette of pinks, purples, reds and blues, you’re sure to fall for this elegant capsule collection.

Olivia Palermo was of course the first to be spotted wearing a piece from the collection during London Fashion Week, wearing the gorgeous Valli dress which mixes white stripes, florals and bright colours.

The Preen designers have described the dress as a “great example of us drawing on an archive Preen design and adapting it with a new graphic floral print for the L.K. Bennett customer.”

Prices for the range, which comprises 16 pieces, start at £195 and go up to £550.

I wonder if we’ll see the Duchess in this collection?

Highlights include the Sonic Dark pink sequinned dress that will definitely attract compliments come party season.

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 @ 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.

Olivia Palermo rocks a French girl style Self-Portrait summer jumpsuit

Olivia Palermo was looking relaxed, super comfortable and oh-so-chic in her Self-Portrait Spring 2017 casual jumpsuit, which was the perfect item for her to switch gears.

I’ll admit, I didn’t like this at first, but I like that the foundation is simple and neutral with the addition of unexpected elements such as the buttons, trims, cut-out and lace which makes it all the more interesting and appealing.

I also love how the high-waisted fit and flared cuffs give the bottoms a 70’s-inspired touch.

Yes, there are some fit issues top end, but I’m loving this nonetheless.

Simple sneakers, Dior shades and a ‘Severine’ bag from her recently launched collaboration with meli melo, completed her look.

Women’s Health and Feed 2017 Party Under the Stars Party

A group of femmes descended on the Women’s Health and FEED’s sixth annual Party Under the Stars in Bridgehampton, New York on Saturday (August 5).

Olivia Palermo: Chic and breezy, Olivia donned a Diane von Furstenberg polka-dot maxi skirt that had a distinct ladylike modernity when paired with a lace ruffle blouse and metallic-accented sandals.

Freida Pinto: You may know Self-Portrait for its feminine, lace frocks. But, with this Resort 2018 ensemble, the brand explored ruffles and pleats in an eye-catching, black-and-white palette that Freida showed off beautifully with Kate Spade New York ‘Orchid’ sandals.
