Front Row @ Chanel Fall 2017 Couture

The front row of the Chanel Haute Couture Fall 2017 show at the Grand Palais on Tuesday (July 4) was especially star-studded this Paris Fashion Week season with so many stylish notables in attendance—and dressed in their Chanel best, naturally.

Kristen Stewart: I never imagined a cropped, sequin jumpsuit could look so relevant. But, I credit its seamless appeal to the minimal styling surrounding as Kristen makes it work with her sheer lack of accessories save for her classic black pumps and, of course, that edgy platinum buzz cut.

Pom Klementieff: The quintessential cool girl, Pom never ceases to impress with her inspired, impossibly chic style. My obsession continues with this look that provided an unexpected twist on classic Chanel tweed with this reverse jacket—with lapels cut low in the back—paired with black, cutoff denim and metallic heels. From the classic buttons, to the rebellious fray of the pant hem, to the singular sunny spark radiating from the quilted handbag, it’s the details here that make all the difference.

Cara Delevingne: Rounding out this trio of icy blondes, Cara also was on top form in her particular brand of edginess that actually didn’t involve a leggy mini this time out. Still, those slouchy, metallic trousers made her pins look a mile long. She rounded out her style warrior look with a Chanel choker and arm cuff along with a flirty, hot pink eye shadow that put plenty of pretty spunk into the look.

Pharrell Williams & Helen Lasichanh In Comme des Garçons – 2017 Met Gala

Pharrell Williams and Helen Lasichanh took to the red carpet together at 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1) in New York City.

While they both wore looks from the Comme des Garçons Fall 2017 collection, the two ensembles couldn’t have been more different.

Pharrell didn’t let his co-chair status cramp his laid-back style choices for the night, pairing tattered denim with a flannel shirt and a studded leather moto jacket.

As for Helen, that intense Kawakubo red came out to play again in this puffy variation on a jumpsuit. I can almost hear an Oompa-Loompa calling—he wants his outfit back.

Celebration Of Chanel’s Gabrielle Bag

Back in February, Chanel released the details of its forthcoming Gabrielle line, which was the brand’s first (major) new bag model since the ‘Boy’ bag back in 2011.

Chanel brand ambassadors – Kristen Stewart, Caroline de Maigret, Pharrell Williams and Cara Delevingne – will star in the campaign, however, only two of the three were on hand to host a party for the newest ‘IT’ bag at Giorgio Baldi on Thursday (April 6) in Santa Monica, California.

Lily Collins: There was a range of looks this event, but Lily’s tweed two-piece stayed true to the brands classic style.

Pharrell Williams: Leaving his Chanel pearls at home, the performer opted for a more sportier vibe on this occasion. The look almost has a 80s rapper vibe to it, the only thing missing is the chunky gold chain.

Katy Perry: If it wasn’t for the event, I would struggle to believe this was Chanel. It’s far too sloppy for my liking.

Chanel Fall 2017 Front Row

Always a haute ticket, the Chanel Fall 2017 presentation on Tuesday (March 7) during Paris Fashion Week brought with it a set of unique Chanel style statements in the range of front-row looks that were spotted.

Rita Ora
: Going for a relaxed edginess, Rita wore a more laid-back statement in her metallic, floral-print blouse and slouchy leather-accented pants with the pop of her spring-green bag bringing an unexpected burst of colour to the darker look.

Lily Allen: Sculptural and chic, Lily played with proportion in her cape-sleeve coat styled with plush velvet pants for added texture. Her sunglasses, gigantic hoop earrings, and embellished handbag ensured there was a spirited personality to the serious side of the look.

Cara Delevingne: There was no risk for lack of attitude in the model’s ensemble, which saw her breathe a unique boldness into the prim sweater by pairing it with low-slung trousers and Supreme boxers. A Chanel choker and retro round shades completed her style-rebel ensemble.

2017 Oscars Menswear Roundup

A handsome handful of guys also took to the red carpet for the 2017 Oscars on Sunday (February 26) in Hollywood, California.

David Oyelowo: The sharp suaveness of this Dolce & Gabbana tux, with its white dress jacket and contrast black labels, was undeniable. Christian Louboutin ‘Dada’ loafers capped off the look with a touch of polish.

Andrew Garfield: The classic black tuxedo received a slim-line, slightly cropped proportion in this Tom Ford number.

Riz Ahmed: Our third rendition of the tux came courtesy of Riz, who took his to more colourful territory in a blue Ermenegildo Zegna Couture suit accented with Montblanc studs and cufflinks and Christian Louboutin ‘Alpha Male’ shoes. For a couture piece, I would have expected a slightly more precise fit.

Charles Finch and Chanel Pre-Oscar Awards Dinner

The annual Charles Finch and Chanel Pre-Oscar Awards Dinner took place at Madeo Restaurant on Saturday (February 25) in Beverly Hills, California, with all our favourite stars in attendance.

Nicole Kidman: The grand dame looked as regal as ever in Chanel Spring 2017 Couture. While I wish she had kept the original length, she always excels in Chanel. The look was style with Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudistsong’ sandals and a smattering of diamonds.

Janelle Monáe: I’m sure many of you will be singing ‘hallelujah’ upon sight of Janelle not wearing black and white or a multitude of clashing prints. I’m more excited that this gold Chanel Pre-Fall 2017 tuxedo dress could be another indication that my Oscars prediction of a black-and-white-out could be coming to fruition. The look was styled with a Chanel bag and Christian Louboutin ‘Louloudance’ sandals.

Naomi Watts: Colour is like food to my soul, so consider me full and plenty satisfied by Naomi’s Chanel Spring 2017 explosive print frock. The clutch, not so much.
