Elie Saab Fall 2014 Front Row

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 Fall 2014 Couture Front Row

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 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?

Olivia Palermo’s Pattern Play Inspiration

Olivia Palermo's Pattern Play Inspiration

The Spring 2014 runways saw a rush of print-spiration at every turn—from painterly pop art and abstract graffiti brushstrokes to more ethnic motifs, striking digital prints and whimsical geometric collections of dots, lines and circles.

But rather than sending mixed messages, the mash-up of patterns proved a delightfully fresh way to wear the designs—which the celeb set was none too shy to model.

Resident trendsetter Olivia Palermo brought her street style to the next level when she indulged in a bit of pattern play.

Monochrome took on new meaning when she combined a striped Tibi top with a polka-dot Tibi blouse and checkerboard, high-waist Zara shorts for a super-chic assortment. Even her Nathalie Trad clutch provided another contrasting pattern, while those green Aquazurra wrap pumps couldn’t have been a better accessory to add a splash of sophisticated colour to the mix.

Design houses gave us even more mixed prints to consider, including Rodebjer’s loose silhouette of bold black-and-white stripes, Holly Fulton’s playful, swirling peach and pink polka dots, and Libertine’s ladylike blouse-and-skirt blend of dotted fun.

Olivia Palermo In Tibi – ‘Yves Saint Laurent’ New York Premiere

Olivia Palermo In Tibi - 'Yves Saint Laurent' New York Premiere

Olivia Palermo attended the Weinstein Company’s ‘Yves Saint Laurent’ premiere held at the Museum of Modern Art on Monday (June 16) in New York City.

I haven’t been the greatest fan of her recent red carpet looks, however, this sees her back on track.

The socialite wore a look from one of her favourite designers, Tibi, donning a white cropped jacket, pretty green, white and black asphalt striped cami top coordinated with a green Tibi ‘Sonoran’ eyelet skirt, which was partially adding some allure to her look.

Opting for exotic accessories, she styled her look with an animal-print skirt, snake-skin clutch and Sergio Rossi sandals.

The queen of accessories was on fire on this occasion.

I adore this look from head-to-toe.
