Who Wore Lanvin Better…Kerry Washington or Pace Wu?

WWIB Lanvin

Kerry Washington attended the Elle and Tod’s event held in her honour back in June wearing a Lanvin one-shoulder duchess satin dress with oversized ruffles on the shoulder.

The buttery-soft rose-beige dress was styled with a gold studded Tod’s clutch, butterscotch Louboutin pumps and a simple updo.

Sporting a cropped wig, Pace Wu wore the same dress while attending the ‘Lancôme Show by Alber Elbaz’ party during Paris Couture fashion week.

The Asian beauty who had been taking the front row by storm all week styled her look with nude Jimmy Choo ‘Cosmic’ pumps and a wooden Lanvin clutch.

It took a lot of toing and froing, but in the end I went with Kerry, mostly because I prefer her clutch. Other than that it was impossible to separate the two as both looked amazing in this frock.

You can buy their Lanvin dress from Neiman Marcus and  Nordstrom.

Who Wore Chloé Better…Pace Wu or Diane Kruger?

Who Wore Chloe Better Pace Wu or Diane Kruger

Pace Wu, who has dominated the front row at Paris Fashion Week for three seasons now, took her seat at the front row for Chloe’s Fall 2013 presentation wearing a look from their Spring 2013 collection.

She wore a silver-beaded and crystal-arrowed white crepe cropped tank with an ivory skirt styled with a Chloe clutch, silver Jimmy Choo ‘Lance’ sandals and a messy bun.

Going from the front row to the streets of LA, Diane Kruger wore the same top a few months later with Current/Elliott jeans, sandals, cat-eye sunglasses and the celeb favourite Balmain ‘Pierre’ bag.

Both ladies wore it well in their respective environments, but I have to go with Pace on this one. Despite being in a more formal setting, the look still has a playful appeal.

Pace Wu In Elie Saab – P&G’s Pro Series Shampoo Line Promotion Event

Pace Wu In Elie Saab - P&G's Pro Series Shampoo Line Promotion Event

Pace Wu attended a commercial event which saw her unveiled as the new ambassador for P&G’s Pro Series shampoo line on Friday in Beijing, China.

With green being the colour of the brand’s logo and product, Pace selected a green Elie Saab gown for the occasion.

Her chiffon emerald-green gown with a lace patterned bodice was effortlessly styled with a gold bracelet and enviable glossy wavy tresses.

I know what you are thinking: this is a tad OTT for a launch of a shampoo line, but in this instance she is selling glamour and you can’t get more glamorous than an Elie Saab gown.

Best Dressed of The Week - Zhang Ziyi In Valentino Couture & Pace Wu In Ulyana Sergeenko Couture

You guys weren’t crazy about either Zhang Ziyi’s Lanvin look or her Giambattista Valli Couture gown; however, you fell head over heels in love with her Valentino Couture cape dress.

I had a much harder time picking a favourite, with Miroslava, Rinko, Naomie and Sandra all impressing, but my final winner was the gorgeous Pace Wu in Ulyana Sergeenko Couture.

Who Was Your Best Dressed At Couture Week?

Who Was Your Best Dressed At Couture Week

Two ladies stood head and shoulders above all the fashionistas in the front row of Haute Couture fashion week: Miroslava Duma and Pace Wu.

The petite Russian fashion editor gave us an array of colourful looks ranging from a mini dress from Camilla and Marc, to a colourful Dior frock, denim shorts paired with a smart Chanel jacket, a sexy Jason Wu two-piece look, a flirty floral frock, and a sophisticated Fendi ensemble.

Pace Wu kept to a very neutral colour palette during the week, wearing white or nude frocks, starting with a fairytale-like Giambattista Valli strapless Couture gown and progressing through a ladylike Ulyana Sergeenko Couture frock, a one-shoulder Lanvin dress, a sheer Elie Saab dress and a ruffled Viktor & Rolf gown. The only other colour she opted for was a blue Ulyana Sergeenko gown with a familiar neckline.

Looking back, I love the variety of colour and the daring looks displayed by Miroslava, so she takes the crown for Couture Week Queen.

Viktor & Rolf Fall 2013 Couture Front Row

Victor & Rolf Fall 2013 Couture Front Row

Viktor & Rolf presented their Fall 2013 Couture show yesterday evening at La Gaîté Lyrique in Paris, France.

Pace Wu: The actress looked heavenly once again, wearing an ethereal Viktor & Rolf white silk short-sleeved gown with ruffle detailing from the Pre-Fall 2013 collection. Thankfully, she didn’t take the accessorizing and toughening up of this look too far, as she just added a gold-chain-accented black waistband all by Viktor & Rolf, a gold Charlotte Olympia clutch and a Hermes CDC bracelet.

Rose McGowan: The returned-to-brunette actress was also in attendance, wearing a Viktor & Rolf Resort 2013 black silk-chiffon halter-neck gown with a keyhole detail. A silver clutch and frosty-pink lip colour provided the finishing touches.

Elie Saab Fall 2013 Couture Front Row

Elie Saab Fall 2013 Couture Front Row

A group of glam-minded guests gathered to witness the sparkling, dramatic confections that floated down the runway at the Elie Saab Fall 2013 Couture show at the Palais Brongniart in Paris, France on Wednesday.

Pace Wu: The Asian beauty and red-carpet chameleon once again played the quick-change artist, casting her sporty cropped wig to the side for this sexy-romantic Elie Saab Spring 2013 dress. The solid geometric panels on the bodice edged up the sheer nude lace and flowing ballet skirt, which she paired with a silver box clutch and cream ankle-strap shoes.

Miroslava Duma: Veering away from her more style-forward entrances seen this Paris Haute-Couture Fashion Week, our FROW girl debuted a glossy, country-chic peasant dress, printed in a painterly Wedgwood blue. Matching Roger Vivier ‘Prismick’ heels put a mod spin on the floral frock. Yes, this look had charm, but I have to say that the sombre black-fringed shawl clouded what could have been a delightful little dress.

Petra Nemcova: Also feeling blue, the model snugged into a body-con Elie Saab square-neck dress. But, the positive benefits afforded by her glinting metallic-blue clutch and sandals could barely distract from the unnecessary black beads around her neck. Undoubtedly, her red-slicked smile stole the show.
