Paloma Faith In Burberry Prorsum – Harvey Weinstein’s Pre-BAFTA Dinner

Paloma Faith In Burberry Prorsum - Harvey Weinstein's Pre-BAFTA Dinner

The eternally wonderful Paloma Faith attended Harvey Weinstein’s annual pre-BAFTA dinner yesterday evening (February 14) at London’s Little House Mayfair.

Admired for her louder-than-life red carpet creations and fearless approach to colour, it came as quite a surprise to see Paloma wearing head-to-toe black. Albeit a beautiful Burberry Prorsum Resort 2014 lace look.

Wearing a figure-hugging black mid-length dress and sheer over-coat with delicate cut-out and sheer detailing draped elegantly over her shoulders, Paloma complemented her look with an embellished Burberry black satin clutch and patent courts.

What this look lacks in colour it more than makes up for in glamour and grace. Now I’m sure some fans will be disappointed by the dark palette but I really believe this really is one of the stars most alluring looks, and one which reminds me of old Hollywood glamour.

It has charm, sassiness and sophistication and with Pamola’s unfading confidence, it also oozes a new kind of understated pizazz.

And of course no Paloma look would be complete without a hint of colour. While her flame-red hair was tied in a chic up-do, an orangey-red lip and pillar-box red nail hues added a fiery kick. Bravo Paloma.

Paloma Faith In Dolce & Gabbana & ASOS – ‘Cuban Fury’ World Premiere

Paloma Faith In Dolce & Gabbana - ‘Cuban Fury’ World Premiere

Paloma Faith attended the world premiere of ‘Cuban Fury’ held at Vue Leicester Square on Thursday (February 6) in London joining Rashida Jones.

Despite the rain, she opted for yet another summery look, donning a Dolce & Gabbana floral-print sheath styled with matching platform sandals, a pretty pink ASOS cocoon coat, a maroon hat, flesh-coloured tights and a Dolce & Gabbana ‘Miss Sicily’ bag.

While I am probably the greatest fan of Paloma’s style, I’m not a fan of this look.

Her daytime floral dress feels not only so out of season but also so out of place at this event.

The tights send shivers down my spine, and not in a good way; the matching sandals are a tad cheesy; and the maroon hat doesn’t go with any part of her look.

I love the ASO coat and the floral-lined umbrella, but would save the dress for a summer’s evening premiere.

Armani Prive Spring 2014 Front Row

Armani Prive Spring 2014 Front Row

Celebs gathered to view the Giorgio Armani Prive Spring 2014 show as part of Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week on Tuesday (January 21) in Paris, France.

Paloma Faith: Always a delight to behold, Paloma of course opted for something uber glamorous, wearing a black pleated-fan-bodice Giorgio Armani Fall 2013 gown with a velvet skirt for her grand arrival. You may be thinking a gown is a bit OTT for a fashion show, but the show was at 8.30pm and was to be followed by a dinner – and this is Paloma Faith we are talking about, who never does things by halves.

Zhang Ziyi: The Asian actress was considerably more demure, wearing a magenta Giorgio Armani Spring 2014 embellished fitted jacket with black fitted pants, which she styled with black pumps and a black-and-white clutch. This look says everything about Armani: classic, timeless and oh so very elegant.

Kristin Scott Thomas: The English-French actress had the same idea as Zhang Ziyi, but sadly I wasn’t as enthused by Kristin’s execution. I much prefer the runway styling of this look, being orange, black and black rather than Kristin’s orange, orange, black and blue. Swap the orange silk blouse for a black one and lose the navy clutch and I would be more inclined to like this look.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Lea Seydoux In Prada & Miu Miu, Paloma Faith In Burberry Prorsum, Ian Somerhalder in Z Zegna & David Gandy

Best Dressed Of The Week - Lea Seydoux In Prada & Miu Miu, Paloma Faith In Burberry Prorsum

Our first Best Dressed of the Week of 2014 was quite a close-fought race.

Only one percent separated the ladies, with Lea Seydoux in her colourful printed Miu Miu dress and Prada coat your eventual winner.

I’m sure no one is surprised my heart went to Paloma Faith in her goosebump-inducing Burberry Prorsum Spring 2014 ensemble; as always, my girl never lets me down. The look was soft and sensual with plenty of drama.

Both making us consider pastel-hued coats this winter.

Best Dressed Of The Week -  Ian Somerhalder in Z Zegna & David Gandy

Two dapper dans took the prize for best dressed in the menswear department.

Ian Somerhalder in Z Zegna was your winner; something about his cheeky charm and the relaxed nature of his look no doubt won you over.

I selected David Gandy because, well, he is David Gandy, and that is now synonymous with great style and suave three-piece suits with impeccable tailoring.

Burberry Prorsum Fall 2014 Menswear Show

Burberry Prorsum Fall 2014 Menswear Show

The Burberry Prorsum Fall 2014 menswear show was held at Kensington Gardens earlier today (January 8) in London, with a host of London IT boys taking to the red carpet and a few ladies checking out the menswear show too.

Paloma Faith: As you know, I have a huge style crush on Paloma, and I’m delighted to see her working a hot-pink Burberry Prorsum Spring 2014 lace top and skirt styled with an oversized baby-blue coat and silver accessories. Yes, it’s not quite season appropriate, but I’m so captivated by these pastel hues and complementary pink lip that the rules will go out the window on this occasion.

Tinie Tempah: The British rapper has been front and centre at nearly every show during Men’s Collection week. Having attended the womenswear Spring 2014 show back in September, it’s no surprise to see fashion IT boy front row at this show. He wore a Del-Boy-inspired olive Burberry coat with a fur collar over his grey suit styled with brown monk-strap shoes.

Suki Waterhouse: Working a more season-appropriate look, the model wore a Burberry maroon suit featuring black lapels, which she styled with lace-up boots and a cream wool coat. Season appropriate? Yes. Likely to make my heart skip several beats like Paloma? Sadly, no but I still love the look.
