2015 Tribeca Film Festival Chanel Artists Dinner

2015 Tribeca Film Festival Chanel Artists Dinner

The 2015 Tribeca Film Festival Chanel Artists Dinner was hosted at Balthazar in New York City on Monday (April 20), where the fashion house’s famous fans gathered to raise a toast.

Zoe Kravitz: While it was lovely to see the actress’s softer side in this Chanel ensemble consisting of a pink cropped sweater and flirty, flared patterned skirt, I simply couldn’t get past those white pumps.

Cobie Smulders: I loved Cobie’s Chanel outing which artfully combined patterns in a painterly, watercolour top and tweed trousers. Her ‘Ladies First’ handbag put the final tongue-in-cheek zing into the look.

Michiel Huisman: He wore a navy Jack Wills suit and Haspel Clothing Hawaiian-print shirt with wife Tara Elders in an army-green dress and black shoulder bag. While it’s hard to argue with the actor’s handsome gaze, I simply don’t understand this island-inspired look on this occasion.

Zoe Kravitz In Balenciaga – ‘Good Kill’ Tribeca Film Festival Premiere

Zoe Kravitz In Balenciaga - ‘Good Kill’ Tribeca Film Festival Premiere
Zoe Kravitz joined January Jones at the premiere of ‘Good Kill’ during the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival at BMCC Tribeca PAC on Sunday (April 19) in New York City.

The exact opposite to January’s all-white look, Zoe’s Balenciaga Pre-Fall 2015 LBD saw her returning to familiar ground with her favoured colour, black.

Pared down from the lookbook, she styled the structured leather dress simply with black strappy sandals while pulling her braids into a ponytail.

A barely-there makeup palette softened the edges to round out this minimalistic entrance.

Zoe Kravitz In Christian Dior Couture – ‘Insurgent’ New York Premiere

Zoe Kravitz In Christian Dior Couture - 'Insurgent' New York Premiere
Zoe Kravitz attended the ‘Insurgent’ New York premiere, hosted at Ziegfeld Theater on Monday (March 16) in New York City.

Still staying away from her once-familiar all-black colour theme, the actress cut a striking profile in a Christian Dior Spring 2014 Couture geometrically embroidered pink and dark-ink-blue silk frock.

Directional in its sculpted, bell-shaped silhouette and the extended cape-like appendage at the back, the dress possessed the slightest of a sci-fi mood that proved perfect for the film.

Completing the dress were hints of jewelry, including a Dior choker necklace, Dior earrings and stacks of Dior rings. The necklace was unnecessary, given the impact of the dress, but it was so subtle that it didn’t prove too distracting.

Zoe Kravitz In Balenciaga – The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

Zoe Kravitz made a guest appearance on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ to promote her new movie, ‘Insurgent’, before playing a game of giant beer pong with the host.

No surprises that the actress wore an Alexander Wang for Balenciaga look, selecting a distinctly modern off-the-shoulder playsuit from the Spring 2015 collection, which was given an ultra-modern flair with sheer lilac sleeves.

I love this continual move away from all things black. This outfit really softens her look, despite the nose-ring.

Going light on the accessories, Zoe completed her look with white Balenciaga strappy sandals.

Guggenheim International Gala Dinner Hosted by Dior

Guggenheim International Gala Dinner Hosted by Dior

Following the pre-party the night before, last night (November 6) Dior hosted the Guggenheim International Gala Dinner in New York City, with some faces in attendance for a second time in a row.

Camilla Belle: Of course she would make a return, this time wearing a beautiful black silk Dior gown styled with Dior accessories and Chopard jewels. As gorgeous as the gown is, it doesn’t feel quite right for Camille. Put this in the hands of Eva Green, Angelina Jolie or Uma Thurman and we would see sparks fly. I prefer Camilla in bright, fresh hues like her Carolina Herrera gown from a few weeks ago.

Zoe Kravitz: The French brand continued to take the actress out of her all-black all-of-the-time style. On this occasion she wore a white silk crop top and layered silk skirt with a slit. I was on the fence with the Dior necklace, but on reflection the necklace makes the look. Perhaps the look would’ve been quite plain without it. White bow-front Dior heels rounded out her look.

Leelee Sobieski: The actress, who has been a Raf Simons fan for quite some time, attended the event wearing a lace-accented Dior rose-coloured wool and angora Fall 2014 coat with a Dior rose-coloured wool skirt and a simple tee. I love the coat more than the rest of her look. Perhaps she should’ve buttoned up the coat for the photocall.

Zoe was my favourite here. Who grabs your attention?

Guggenheim International Gala Pre-Party Presented by Dior

Guggenheim International Gala Pre-Party Presented by Dior

Dior hosted the Guggenheim International Gala Pre-Party on Wednesday (November 5) in New York City, so of course it was a Dior-fest attended by many celebs, including their favourite girl.

Marion Cotillard: The French beauty wore a strapless black Dior Couture frock made interesting by its layered flared skirt and accessories which included a Dior silver clutch and dual-coloured pink and red pointy Dior Couture ankle boots.

Camilla Belle: Working an equally interesting silhouette in this rise-and-fall hemline dress, the actress wore a pretty pink Dior rose silk leather satin dress enriched with silver cascading embellishments, but it’s the accessories, especially those dual-colour pink and yellow Dior heels, and the Dior ‘Be Dior’ bag which have me going weak at the knees.

Zoe Kravitz: When we think of Dior, cool isn’t a word that instantly springs to mind, yet Zoe oozes just that in her Spring 2015 white and navy jacquard cotton suit. It’s so refreshing not to see her wearing all-black or Alexander Wang. The look was styled with Dior earrings, Dior shoes and a ‘Be Dior’ handbag.
