Rinko Kikuchi In Kenzo – Opening Ceremony Omotesando Flagship Store Opening

Rinko Kikuchi In Kenzo - Opening Ceremony Omotesando Flagship Store Opening

Rinko Kikuchi recently attended the Opening Ceremony Omotesando flagship store opening in Tokyo, Japan.

The usually chic actress slightly overcooked her look on this occasion.

I love the Kenzo Spring 2013 collection as much as Jessica Alba, Beyonce Knowles and Brandy Norwood, but there is just too much going on here for my liking.

Pairing the yellow clouded-print jacket and skirt would’ve sufficed; however, she also added a Kenzo cloud-print scarf, Kenzo lizard-embossed bag and Kenzo animal-print platform sandals into the mix.

Even Solange Knowles would say no to this much print going on in one look.

Chanel’s Fine Jewelry 80th Anniversary Celebration

Here are six more looks from the celebration of Chanel Fine Jewelry’s 80th anniversary of the ‘Bijoux De Diamants’ collection, created by Gabrielle Chanel, in New York City yesterday evening.

January Jones: After knocking it out of the fashion ballpark at the Emmys, I’m deeply disappointed by January on this occasion. Between the ghostly makeup, low bandeau and the off-white maxi skirt, the best way to sum up this Chanel Fall 2008 Couture look would be “a hot mess”.

Leigh Lezark: It was left to the DJ and FROWer to bring some glamour to proceedings. Leigh looked stunning wearing a black net Chanel Pre-Fall 2010 gown with PVC embroidery which was styled with a matching bolero with a high neckline. A Perspex clutch, a simple updo and barely there makeup save for kohl-rimmed eyes completed her look.

Giovanna Battaglia: The editor gives me a dilemma. Do I look at the shoes or her Chanel Resort 2013 dress first? Because both are screaming for my attention.

Chanel’s The Little Black Jacket Event

Karl Lagerfeld hosted Chanel’s The Little Black Jacket Event at the Swiss Institute in New York City yesterday evening, inviting a host of celebrities.

Lily Collins: The young actress wore an ivory look from Chanel’s Pre-Fall 2012 collection. This is most definitely something new for Lily. A sleeveless shirt was styled with a draped skirt. That extra hanging piece is really jarring and gives the skirt a diaper feel, which is a shame. I am also not crazy about the shoe choice, but I love the hair and makeup. I’m glad she opted to step out of her comfort zone.

Rinko Kikuchi: The Asian actress was one of the few who opted for a bright colour at this event. I love this teal chiffon dress and the glitter two-tone Chanel bag. The toe-cap Chanel pumps add an interesting contrast, much like her punky hairdo.

Leigh Lezark: No surprises that the DJ opted for the most daring look of this event. Her Spring 2012 look consisted of a black leather jacket paired with pearlized leather peach-coloured shorts.

Chanel Soho Boutique Re-Opening – Rinko Kikuchi In Chanel

Japanese actress Rinko Kikuchi was in New York for the re-opening of the Chanel Soho boutique.

This follows her appearance on the red carpet at the 2010 Venice Film Festival were we saw her wearing Chanel Couture.

On this occasion she wore look from the Pre-Fall 2010 collection.

It so strange to see Rinko in something so conservative, but she manages to still add some attitude to this modified black dress with chiffon flutter sleeves.

She could’ve hardly worn the runway version, but I would’ve loved it had this dress been a bit shorter.

For someone so fashion forward, I’m constantly baffled as to why Rinko has been pairing all her recent looks with Trib Two’s.

2010 Venice Film Festival “Norwegian Wood” Premiere – Rinko Kikuchi In Chanel Couture

Rinko Kikuchi also walked the red carpet at the “Norwegian Wood” Premiere during the 2010 Venice Film Festival last night.

She’s no stranger to Chanel Couture, so it wasn’t a surprise to see her wear one of the boldest pieces from their Fall 2010 Couture collection.

The Japanese actress wore a bronze embroidered dress which has been heavily modified from the runway.

The lace sleeves are longer and the lace part of the skirt has been shortened.

Unfortunately these two things take a lot away from the look and I really wish Rinko had worn the original version.

If anyone could’ve pulled it off it was her.

I think this is the first time we’ve seen YSL Trib Two’s on the red carpet at a prestigious European Film Festival.

Sadly they get a thumbs down from me too.

Which do you prefer the runway dress or Rinko’s version?
