Chanel’s Spring 2015 ‘3 Girls, 3 Bags’ Campaign

chanel-3girls-3bags-vanessa-paradis-girl

Following the announcement back in January, Chanel’s Spring 2015 handbag campaign, ‘3 Girls, 3 Bags’, has finally been released.

The black-and-white campaign, which was photographed by Chanel creative director Karl Lagerfeld, features American actress Kristen Stewart, French actress Vanessa Paradis and model Alice Dellal, all of whom have posed for Chanel in the past.

Vanessa Paradis posed naked for Karl wearing only a Chanel pearl necklace and the new ‘Girl’ Chanel handbag inspired by the emblematic jacket of the house, which will no doubt become an instant classic.

Chanel’s two iconic handbags are represented by two of its newest ambassadors, Alice Dellal and Kristen Stewart.

Alice continues to be the face of the ‘Boy’ bag, which is particularly suited to her tougher, edgy, androgynous style, while Kristen lends her face to one of the French label’s enduring classics, the quilted ‘11.12’ handbag, looking rather smart yet older than her tender years in this campaign.

Juana Acosta In Oscar de la Renta – Gala Dinner for The Colombian President

Juana Acosta In Oscar de la Renta - Gala Dinner for The Colombian President

Juana Acosta attended a gala dinner held at the Royal Palace on March 2, 2015, in Madrid, Spain, for the Colombian president, Juan Manuel Santos, which would have been a huge honour for the Colombian actress.

She was certainly dressed for the occasion, wearing an Oscar de la Renta black Resort 2015 gown designed be worn to a gala.

Breathtaking beauty in its own right, the silver embroidery only serves to augment the already grandiose design, which needed little else, yet she styled the look with glossy waves and a glitter clutch.

A definite contender for BDOTW, wouldn’t you agree?

Julianne Hough In Reed Krakoff & Temperley London – SiriusXM Studios & AOL Studios

Julianne Hough In Temperley London - SiriusXM Studios & AOL Studios

Sibling performers Derek and Julianne Hough were out in New York City on Monday (March 2) to promote their ‘Move Live on Tour’, where they dance and sing before a live audience.

SiriusXM Studios: Julianne’s first stop was SiriusXM studios were she donned a luxe nude Reed Krakoff look featuring a perforated skirt that gave a slight contemporary edge to this feminine look while providing a delicate play on and welcome alternative to the overused sheer trend. I absolutely love her Kurt Geiger ‘Bond’ dual-print pumps, mostly because I own the exact same pair but also because nude head to toe with this look would’ve been too monotonous.

AOL Studios: The second look of the day had a more mannish flourish. The dancer/actress wore a black and white check Temperley London Spring 2015 look featuring culottes, which continue to be popular two seasons on. I love that she styled the look with a coordinating waistcoat, amping up the contemporary nature of this look, but I am not a fan of the nude Jerome C. Rousseau ‘Mill’s sandals on this occasion. They do nothing to enhance the look. She would’ve fared better with black ‘Nudists’.

Goya Toledo In Dolce & Gabbana – Fotogramas Awards

Goya Toledo In Dolce & Gabbana - Fotogramas Awards

Goya Toledo attended the Fotogramas Awards ceremony held at Joy Eslava on Monday (March 2) in Madrid, Spain.

Known for her love of all things Elie Saab, the actress opted for a different designer on this rare occasion, wearing Dolce & Gabbana.

Her ruched strapless dress, lavishly decorated with the brand’s signature carnations – a favourite of Domenico Dolce’s mother – had plenty of flamenco spirit infused by the ruffles enlivening the skirt.

A gold choker would’ve been my choice to take this down a more directional route, but Goya’s cuff and opulent gold earrings serve this exotic piece just as well.

Helen Mirren In Carmen Marc Valvo – Roundabout Theatre Company’s 2015 Spring Gala

Helen Mirren In Stella McCartney - Roundabout Theatre Company's 2015 Spring Gala

Helen Mirren attended the Roundabout Theatre Company’s 2015 Spring Gala held at the Grand Ballroom at the Waldorf Astoria on Monday (March 2) in New York City.

I think it’s safe to say we all want to be Helen Mirren when we grow up. The Great Dame just gets better with age.

Here she is looking stunning wearing a Carmen Marc Valvo long-sleeve gown featuring shimmering sheer panels that embolden her bodycon gown, resulting in a statement-making style designed to follow feminine curves and create the optical illusion of a tiny waist.

Perfectly poised and irrefutably elegant, the look was styled with diamond drop earrings and a simple box clutch.

Michelle Jenner In Oscar de la Renta – Fotogramas Awards

Michelle Jenner In Oscar de la Renta - Fotogramas Awards

Michelle Jenner attended the Fotogramas Awards ceremony held at Joy Eslava on Monday (March 2) in Madrid, Spain.

The Spanish beauty looked super-chic wearing an Oscar de la Renta graphic navy-blue and white floral-print gown featuring an off-shoulder scooped neckline that upholds notions of ultimate femininity.

While this is a typically classic look from Oscar de la Renta, I love how it is made modern thanks to the rise-and-fall hemline and the actress’s dual-colour silver and blue sandals.

You may remember that Kerry Washington wore this same dress to the Baby2Baby Gala back in November.
