Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Aquazzara x Olivia Palermo

Olivia Palermo has been the unofficial brand ambassador for the Florence-based footwear brand Aquazzura for quite some time, wearing a selection of their shoes – most often the ‘Sexy Thing’ sandals.

So it came as no surprise that Olivia and the brand have collaborated on a capsule collection of six shoe styles called Aquazzura x Olivia Palermo which will be sold in stores including Lane Crawford, Saks Fifth Avenue, Tsum and Holt Renfrew – and exclusively online at Net-A-Porter.com – in September, just in time for her to show them off while taking to the front row during Fashion Month.

The collection will include six styles from sexy sandals to over-the-knee boots, with the prices ranging from $600 to $1,625.

Valentino Fall 2014 Couture Front Row Paris

Valentino presented their beautiful Fall 2014 Couture collection at the Hotel Salmon de Rothschild in Paris, France yesterday evening (July 9) during Couture Fashion Week.

Olivia Palermo: The socialite, who has been front and centre at most of the Couture shows, arrived wearing a Valentino Fall 2014 tri-colour white, black and red dress with a standard collar and colour-block skirt, which is the kind of dainty look we would expect from Olivia. We would also expect her to style the look with some interesting accessories, and she didn’t disappoint, carrying a green Valentino Gryphon fringed clutch and donning her favourite Sergio Rossi sandals. You may remember that Emma Stone wore this same dress during her ‘Spider-Man’ 2 promo tour.

Kim Kardashian: It was not a surprise to see Kim in attendance, considering Valentino Garavani opened up his Parisian estate for her and Kanye back in May, allowing them to host their pre-wedding brunch there. Wearing a plunging pale-blue Valentino gown (which I believe is from the Pre-Fall 2014 collection), she kept the styling simple, accessorizing with diamond jewels.

Emma Watson: Clocking up as many front row seats as Nina Dobrev, the British actress wore a Valentino Resort 2015 two-piece macramé lace bralet and high-waist maxi skirt, opting not to wear the white shirt we saw in the look book. I love how she gave this look an edge by donning a BLK DNM black leather jacket. The rest of the styling included red suede pumps, a dark-green M2Malletier Fabricca leather clutch and a single Delfina Delettrez ‘Fishing for Compliments’ pearl earring with two pearls. My girl crush deepens.

Elie Saab Fall 2014 Front Row

Celebs took to the front row for the Elie Saab Fall 2014 Couture show presented during Couture Fashion Week in Paris this afternoon (July 9).

Nina Dobrev: Having worn an Elie Saab gown to the Bulgari event last night, the actress was front and centre, no doubt selecting potential looks for upcoming red carpet appearances. Opting for a sexy, laidback vibe, she wore a sheer black Elie Saab top with a mauve Elie Saab maxi skirt featuring a side slit, which she toughened up with a black Elie Saab leather jacket slung over her shoulders. The look was styled with an Elie Saab bordeaux ‘Poincarè’ clutch bag and black sandals.

Olivia Palermo: Continuing to champion pattern play, the socialite opted for a black and white look featuring a spotted Tibi top, Banana Republic floral-print trousers and a Christian Dior leopard-print bag. The look was pulled together with a chic black blazer and some sexy diamante-encrusted sandals.

Christian Dior Falll 2014 Couture Front Row

Christian Dior presented their Fall 2014 Haute Couture collection this afternoon (July 7) in Paris, France with a host of familiar faces in the front row.

Charlize Theron: The brand’s golden girl shimmered in the front row wearing a metallic-gold short-sleeved mini dress which showcased those gorgeous gams, which were elongated further with nude pumps. Yellow-gold Anita Ko diamond earring completed her look. Glamour in its simplest form.

Marion Cotillard: Of all the Dior ambassadors, the French actress has perhaps worn the brand most consistently. While not every look has been a hit, she is always a delight to watch. On this occasion she wore a Resort 2014 black top with a fold-over detail and printed silk-scarf panel paired with a high-waisted skirt. The styling was kept simple with Dior pumps and a Miss Dior bag, as was the hair and makeup. Anyone else think this look was crying out for a pair of red pumps?

Jennifer Lawrence: Despite going into her second term as a Dior ambassador, she is still the new kid on the block. Like Marion, Jennifer’s selections for Dior haven’t always been so well received, but on this occasion she proves herself a worthy ambassador, wearing a Resort 2014 ‘Noeud Dior’ printed silk-scarf top paired with a white suede high-waisted skirt. J’adore the two-tone black and white accessories, which included pumps with both ankle and asymmetrical straps, a patent-leather clutch, and Dior tribal earrings. We whine about Jennifer often looking too old in her Dior looks, but I’m sure you will agree this look doesn’t age her at all. This is one of my favourite JLaw/Dior looks (although not a fan of the makeup). And thank God her hairstylist realized they were working with a 20-something star and not Hillary Clinton.

Olivia Palermo In Haute Hippie & Zara - Shutterfly By Design Event

Olivia Palermo hosted the Shutterfly By Design event alongside Brit Morin and Michelle Workman on Wednesday (June 25) in New York City prior to her nuptials.

The socialite wore a colourful exotic look with a touch of Moroccan flair which is quite a feast for the eyes

You don’t know whether to look at her Haute Hippie ikat-print free-flowing blouse in vivid hues or her beautiful Zara embellished shorts first.

Your eye is then quickly drawn to her embellished loafers.

The top and shorts are perfection; the shoes, not so much.

Perhaps it was one embellished piece too far for me. I would’ve added a pair of nude sandals or ballet flats.

Do the shoes work for you?
