Vestiarie Collective Celebrates the Launch of Vintage with Karla Welch

Celebrity stylist Karla Welch hosted a private dinner in LA to celebrate the launch of Vintage on Vestiaire Collective at the Chateau Marmont on Wednesday (July 19).

Jaime King: This Vestiaire Collective vintage maxi dress was a very ‘Jaime’ look, what with its long, bohemian lines and bold fusion of Asian floral prints. The rich colour combination of royal hues with brighter, fiery oranges against her blonde locks is what I loved most.

Tracee Ellis Ross: Also indulging in an explosion of bright colour, Tracee also donned a vintage piece from Vestiaire Collective. With the play on sunrise and sunset hues, this peasant-style dress was a vibrant look for her. The belt was a great accessory, but I cannot say the same about the pink boots—although they did reinforce her quirky sartorial personality.

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.

Front Row @ Rodarte Spring 2018


It was Rodarte designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy’s first time to show in Paris, and their Spring 2018 presentation on Sunday (July 2) during Haute Couture Paris Fashion Week featured a trio of stars who were in attendance to take in the garden-centric setting.

Kirsten Dunst: I loved seeing this Fall 2017 blouse and skirt stripped down from its more overwrought original presentation, as it allowed the romantic side of its edgy, gothic beauty to shine. While a sleeker bun would have not gotten in the way of the ruffled, tulle shoulders, her curls did bring a relaxed femininity to the look that I could appreciate.

Brie Larson: Keeping the Rodarte jewels, including the highly decorative, statement earrings and bracelet, intact, Brie likewise embraced the darker whimsy of this Fall 2017 spidery lace dress. I am glad she nixed the boots in favour of a sleeker sandal.

Tracee Ellis Ross: Tracee can always be relied upon to embrace a quirky style viewpoint, but I couldn’t get on board with this black-and-white Fall 2016 lace dress—most especially because of her unusual selection of the beige Fall 2017 motorcycle jacket in ditzy florals that she wore atop it. Rodarte jewels in the form of that singular earring only made the look more clunky and confused.

Tracee Ellis Ross In Jenny Packham – 2017 amfAR Gala Cannes


Tracee Ellis Ross was in attendance with designer Jeremy Scott at the amfAR Gala Cannes on Thursday (May 25) during the Cannes Film Festival.

We can always count on the actress to bring her uniquely quirky style to the red carpet, and she delivered in this Jenny Packham Spring 2018 Bridal design.

While this look had nothing of a traditional wedding gown flavour, it did have tons of feisty personality in the wash of sequins and big feather sleeves—not to mention its fiery red hue.

It was a lot of dress, so that’s why I wish the fit of the plunge bodice and waistline along with the floor-puddling hemline had been more precisely tailored, as this look needed as much streamlining as it could get.

End of The Week Red Carpet Roundup

With Cannes in full swing, there were many more looks that took to the red carpet this past week outside of the film festival fashion scene.

Kerry Washington: I was so delighted with Kerry’s recent vibrant ensembles that this Monse Fall 2017 dress left me underwhelmed at the ‘Scandal’ Watch Party presented by The Paley Center for Media. Yet, it was still a chic showing from the actress. Malone Souliers ‘Savannah’ sandals completed her look.

Eleanor Tomlinson: A dainty Altuzarra Spring 2017 embroidered chiffon top provided a delicate counterpoint for black trousers and a black leather tie belt. Metallic ‘Parker’ sandals completed the casual-elegant look at ‘The Talk Of The Townhouse’ hosted by Jo Malone London.

Dakota Fanning: Sassy hot-pink won the prize in this youthfully fun Proenza Schouler ikat-inspired crepe wrap dress from the Pre-Fall 2017 collection, which Dakota strutted out at the 2017 Turner Upfront.
