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

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.

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

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.

Pace Wu In Lanvin - Lancôme Show by Alber Elbaz Party

Following the Bulgari event earlier in the evening, Pace Wu arrived at the ‘Lancôme Show by Alber Elbaz’ party held at Le Trianon in Paris, France yesterday evening a totally different woman.

A woman with shorter hair – but fear not, the brown cropped ‘do is a wig. I really love this wig-wearing trend, also embraced by Fan Bingbing, Ciara and Zhang Ziyi during Cannes.

Pace selected a dress designed by the host, wearing a beautiful nude sculpted-ruffle one-shoulder design which sumptuously heightens the appeal of the draped cocktail dress.

Nude Jimmy Choo ‘Cosmic’ pumps and a wooden clutch completed her look.

You may remember that Kerry Washington wore this same dress to a Tod’s event back in May.

It’s gonna be hard to pick a Queen of Couture Week: Miroslava Duma or Pace Wu. Who has been working the front row and party circuit the best for you?
