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

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

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.

Paloma Faith In Dolce & Gabbana - Symphonic Grace Tour

On Wednesday evening Paloma Faith’s Symphonic Grace Tour came to a close at The Sage Gateshead in England.

We’ve seen many amazing tour customs, which will give Beyonce Knowles a run for her money in the best tour outfits of 2013, ranging from Tom Ford to Burberry.

Just when I thought she had given up her Dolce devotion, her final look came courtesy of her favourite Italian designers.

This scrumptious red velvet strapless dress with a flared skirt is hardly new – you may remember that Katy Perry wore it back in 2012 for her ‘Katy Perry: Part of Me 3D’ premiere – but like Katy, Paloma has the personality to pull off this look, adding her own flare with a matching netted fascinator and gold pumps, this time deciding upon a red lip to the consistent pink shade she had worn throughout this tour.

Paloma Faith In Tom Ford – In Concert

Following her concerts in London and Liverpool in England this weekend, Paloma Faith performed at the Bridgewater Hall in Manchester yesterday evening.

Doing what she does best – electrifying the stage – the British singer appears to have swapped her Dolce & Gabbana phase for a Tom Ford phase, donning her second look from the designer’s Fall 2013 collection.

Yesterday I featured her wearing an orange ‘Ka-Pow’ dress; this time she donned a black version with a double motif.

The theme for this tour is clearly colour, with hot-pink lips being the focus, and she appears to be outdoing her headwear with an even more elaborate fascinator than the last.
