Who Wore Chloé Better…Zhang Ziyi or Olivia Palermo?

Who Wore Chloé Better Zhang Ziyi or Olivia Palermo

Zhang Ziyi wore a Chloé Fall 2013 look consisting of a black polka sheer shirt with contrasting white trims with a polka-dot tulle skirt while fulfilling her judging duties on the ‘X Factor’ China finale back in June.

It was a look we didn’t love, especially when styled with white pumps, which many of you have never warmed to no matter how popular they became on the red carpet.

Olivia wore the same skirt with the runway top while attending the ‘Chloé Attitude’ book launch in Paris last month. She styled it with Manolo Blahnik pumps and a Dior clutch.

Both ladies proved that this was best left on the runway, but I will give this to Olivia as she went for the simpler runway top.

Giorgio Armani – One Night Only NYC

Giorgio Armani - One Night Only NYC

Stylishly clad stars collided at Giorgio Armani – One Night Only New York, held yesterday at SuperPier in New York City, with many, of course, trotting out mainly monochromatic looks from the event’s namesake designer.

Renee Zellweger: The actress skipped the skirt and suited up in a black, bow-accented blazer and loose trousers. Her minimal styling and barely-there makeup contributed to the more mannish aesthetic.

Hilary Swank: Also wearing the pants to the party, Hilary took a more dramatic approach with her slim-line pair worn with a glittery, nipped-in blazer top, further vamping up the look with strappy sandals, a smokey eye and loose waves.

Naomi Watts: Playing with proportion, the ‘Diana’ actress pulled off a silken, charcoal-grey top with billowy sleeves paired with a loose, floor-scraping black skirt. There was a lot of fabric to be had here, but there was still an effortless elegance with her swept-back locks and gemstone Monique Péan earrings.

Front Row @ Paris Fashion Week

Front Row @ Paris Fashion Week

Here is a brief look at some of the lovely ladies who have been perched on the front row during Paris Fashion Week.

Ciara @ Givenchy: The singer, who has been both a muse for and a fan of the house of Givenchy for quite some time, donned a Fall 2013 look including a Givenchy abstract print sweater and a sexy Givenchy sheer Muslin skirt with a flounced hem.

Olivia Palermo @ Chloe: The socialite, who has been wearing a lot more high end than high street this season, donned a Chloe Fall 2013 navy blouse with polka-dot sheer panels with a light-blue Chloe Pre-Fall 2013 skirt styled with tan boots and a tan belt.

Lily Collins @ Givenchy: Opting to go goth with her ghostly makeup and berry lip colour, Lily donned the Givenchy Bambi print neoprene sweatshirt synonymous with the Fall 2013 collection as a mini dress. The Bambi-collage-print Givenchy clutch was a touch unimaginative, with black sandals completing the look.

Olivia Palermo In Chloé – ‘Chloe Attitudes’ Book Launch Celebration

Olivia Palermo In Chloé - 'Chloe Attitudes' Book Launch Celebration

Olivia Palermo attended the ‘Chloe Attitudes’ book launch celebration which took place on Friday evening during Paris Fashion Week.

The seasoned FROWer opted to wear a Chloe Fall 2013 look which consisted of a simple black top styled with a heavenly white tulle polka-dot skirt with asymmetrical layers, which you may remember was recently worn by Zhang Ziyi.

Even with plenty of texture courtesy of the skirt, she didn’t shy away when it came to her choice of accessories, adding tri-colour Manolo Blahnik ‘Amiela’ pumps and a black-and-white splatter-paint Dior clutch, which she carried while taking her front row seat at the Spring 2014 show last week.

Tousled tresses and a glossy pink pout completed her look.

Olivia Palermo In Whistles – Moncler Flagship Opening

Olivia Palermo In Whistles - Moncler Flagship Opening

After a fairly quiet London Fashion Week, Olivia Palermo has been seen everywhere during Paris Fashion Week.

Yesterday evening she joined Anna Dello Russo at the Moncler New Flagship Opening party with boyfriend Johannes Huebl.

She donned a black cardigan and top with a sheer yoke, which was thankfully livened up with a Whistles ‘Chalk Check’ black-and-white sequin pencil skirt and Jimmy Choo ‘Dream’ python sandals with colourful tassel details which she has worn a few times before.

Are the shoes and skirt enough to liven up this look for you, or does it feel too sombre for a party?

You can buy Olivia’s Whistles ‘Chalk Check’ black-and-white sequin pencil skirt from Whistles.co.uk.
