Front Row @ Giambattista Valli Fall 2017 Couture

As we all know, Giambattista Valli makes the most beautiful, magical dresses, so when I see how both Celine Dion and Olivia styled their front row looks I’m slightly perplexed.

Spring dresses with heavy fall shoes? In July? Mid-heat wave?

Sorry, I just don’t get it.

I suppose I can give Olivia a pass as her oxfords ground her feminine guipure lace look, but there will be no such forgiveness for Celine.

Her velvet over-the-knee burgundy boots don’t make any sense plus they totally overcook the look.

I hope this isn’t the beginning of the decline for Dion.

Front Row @ Schiaparelli Fall 2017 Couture

Olivia Palermo and Pixie Lott both wore their hearts on their sleeve—so to speak—while in attendance at the Schiaparelli Fall 2017 show on Monday (July 3) during Paris Fashion Week.

Olivia Palermo: This Schiaparelli look certainly captured my affection, several times over, as I was head over heels for its endearing spirit yet impossibly chic attitude. The darling whimsy of the heart, split open, on the crisply tailored dress was only magnified by the jacket—worn as a cape—with its hand-held heart embroidery.

Pixie Lott: The label’s heart motif showed up again in this free-flowing, red dress that definitely possessed its own charm. As for the notion that pink cannot be worn with red, Pixie would not subscribe as she brought in both hot neon and pastel varieties of the shade in shoes and hair, respectively.

Front Row @ Christian Dior Fall 2017 Couture

The front row at the Christian Dior Fall 2017 Couture show on Monday (July 3) during Paris Fashion Week was filled to the brim with Dior-donning darlings who showed their affection for the label in a diverse collection of ways.

Jennifer Lawrence: As we’d expect, Jennifer led the charge with a Dior look that couldn’t be missed—and may have been a bit warm-ish under the summer sun. However, I couldn’t help but be drawn to its quirky, cool-girl ways as it effortlessly mixed the sweet, sultry edge of the sheer lace frock (complete with the Dior briefs underneath) with the frontier spirit of a western hat and patterned, fringe cardigan. Even the Dior ‘Walkin’ Dior’ shoes and the ‘J’adior’ embroidered bag somehow fit in. I wouldn’t have believed it myself had I not seen it.

Robert Pattinson
: Looking as handsome as ever, Robert cut a fetching profile in a Dior Homme suit with an eye-catching, metallic pinstripe effect. I love how he reflected the lines in his striped shirt for a look that was sleekly put-together with just a hint of aloof, bad-boy edge.

Kirsten Dunst: Festooned with a collection of embroidered stars and hearts, this was such a darling, layered tulle frock on Kirsten. She didn’t overcook it either by letting the dress have top billing and paring back the styling to a simple pair of pumps and romantic waves.

Olivia Palermo In Banana Republic – 2017 CFDA Fashion Awards

I was excited to see Olivia Palermo at the 2017 CFDA Fashion Awards on Monday (June 5) in New York City, as she was debuting a look from her forthcoming capsule collection with Banana Republic.

It’s the label’s first-ever co-branded collection, and judging by this enviable dress, it was very much a good call to collaborate.

I love the rich cayenne hue in partnership with the femininity of the cold-shoulder silhouette and flounced bodice and sleeves. The button accents and belting offer a nearly trench-inspired mood for modern, classic appeal.

A shame about the less streamlined, real-life fit and the creases on Olivia, as they compromised its full potential.

Christian Dior Cruise 2018 Welcome Dinner

There were a chic set of Dior darlings in attendance for the Christian Dior Cruise 2018 Welcome Dinner in Malibu, California on Wednesday (May 10).

Freida Pinto: Making a chic statement in more ways than one, Freida dressed up her message tee with a sophisticated long gray skirt and navy overcoat along with cage sandals and a matte red lip.

Kiernan Shipka: The style-forward starlet kept it simple and sweet in a short, black velvet piece paired with sheer booties.

Juno Temple: Juno stayed firmly planted in fall with this heavy, black coat and what looked to be the same platform boots from her prior Marc Jacobs appearance. The creamy lace dress peeking through underneath was the only note of spring.

Burberry Celebrates The Launch Of The DK88 Bag

Burberry-wearing beauties came out in force to celebrate the launch of the Burberry DK88 Bag, hosted by Christopher Bailey, at Burberry Soho on Tuesday (May 2) in New York City.

Ruby Rose: I always look forward to seeing what Ruby has to offer on the red carpet, and her dynamic style took another cool-girl turn with this Burberry ensemble. It was like fashion’s very own Oreo cookie, with the crisp precision of black, menswear-inspired tailoring enveloped by the rich creaminess of a dramatic ivory cape. I love the metallic finish the handbag brought to the look, too.

Ellie Goulding: Laden with rich, textural embellishment, this patterned Burberry frock was only in need of a sleeker updo.

Serena Williams: Serena continued her tip-top pregnancy style with a vamped-up, lacy Burberry wrap dress in which she defined her burgeoning bump with a snakeskin belt.
