Haute Couture Fall 2013 Red Carpet Wish List

Couture Wish List 1

With Fall 2013 Couture week behind us and the first piece already taken to the red carpet, here is a roundup of the looks I would love to see on the red carpet and who I would like to see wearing them.

Alexandre Vauthier Couture: This bedazzled and feathered confection has Grammys, Billboard Awards or MTV Music Awards written all over it, so this look gave me a bit of a conundrum. I would love to see it on Katy Perry because the blue would be divine against her pale skin and dark hair; however, with such a deep plunge and being so well endowed, it could be a wardrobe malfunction waiting to happen, so I switched my final choice to Jennifer Lopez, who would work that slit like no other.

Alexis Mabille Couture: While the burlesque queen Dita von Teese loves black, she does step out of her comfort zone from time to time. This puff-sleeved blouse and floral skirt combo would be a refreshing change. It would be too much to ask for the runway styling, as we all know she loves those retro waves and red lips, but I’m pretty confident she could pull this look off.

Rita Ora In Alexandre Vauthier – ‘Chime For Change: The Sound Of Change Live’ Media Room

Rita Ora In Alexandre Vauthier - ‘Chime For Change The Sound Of Change Live’ Media Room

After her performance at the ‘Chime For Change: The Sound Of Change Live’ Concert at Twickenham stadium on Saturday, where she wore a gold sequin one-of-a-kind Gucci suit, Rita Ora was spotted in the media room working a second look.

On this occasion she wore a white Alexandre Vauthier one-sleeve top with matching high-waist pants.

The British singer has worn several look by the French designer; each have served her well – until now.

I don’t know if it’s the look itself or the poor styling but nothing – sans her red pumps – are working for me here.

Rita is yet to wow me. When it comes to her style; I still don’t get her as I always feel like she is trying way too hard.

25.05.13 Premiere

Emmanuelle Seigner In Alexandre Vauthier – ‘La Venus a La Fourrure’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Emmanuelle Seigner In Alexandre Vauthier - 'La Venus a La Fourrure' Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Emmanuelle Seigner took to the red carpet this evening for the premiere of ‘La Venus a La Fourrure’ during Cannes Film Festival.

This is one red gown that didn’t fade into the red carpet.

The actress wore a custom Alexandre Vauthier low-cut silk jersey gown which she styled with red Christian Louboutin sandals.

Her daring gown instantly made me think of Blake Lively (before coming Mrs. Reynolds) because like Emmanuelle, Blake didn’t follow the legs or boobs rule.

I love the daring nature of the gown and Emmanuelle’s ‘if you’ve got it, flaunt it’ attitude. However, there are so many pictures of her looking down at her boobs to ensure she did not suffer a wardrobe malfunction, one has to wonder how comfortable she was in the dress.

Love or loathe?

Paz Vega In Alexandre Vauthier Couture – Bulgari Hosts ‘Cleopatra’ Cocktail

Paz Vega In Alexandre Vauthier Couture - Bulgari Hosts ‘Cleopatra’ Cocktail

Paz Vega joined Jessica Chastain on the red carpet at the Hotel Marriott in Cannes, France yesterday evening for the Bulgari Hosts ‘Cleopatra’ cocktail party.

The Spanish actress hasn’t been seen on the red carpet since her Stéphane Rolland disaster, so I hope she has a chance to redeem herself and give us a BDOTY-worthy look before this festival ends on Sunday.

Paz opted for a simple black-and-white Alexandre Vauthier Spring 2013 Couture look consisting of a white silk blouse and high-waisted silk pants, which is infinitely sexier than her last outing.

Black satin pumps and an Alexandre Vauthier clutch accessorized her look, with the stand-out piece being that breathtaking Bulgari necklace.

Rita Ora In Alexandre Vauthier Couture – Brit Awards 2013 After-Parties

Rita Ora In Alexandre Vauthier Couture - Brit Awards 2013 After-PartiesAfter her bizarre Ulyana Sergeenko bustle gown for the 2013 Brit Awards red carpet on Wednesday, Rita Ora slipped into something different for the after parties that evening.

Wearing her second leggy look from Alexandre Vauthier’s Spring 2013 Couture collection, the British songstress’s dress was even more daring than her first.

The halter neckline of the shiny, sequin dress featured a gold choker detail and a plunging back.

But that hip-high splice all the way up the side was the most glaring detail; that, and the ridiculously long train that no doubt proved to be quite a drag.

Rita’s plus-one for the Brit Awards parties was definitely her well-toned pin.

She kept on her same Giuseppe Zanotti wedge sandals, with the gold dagger-like ankle strap, that she wore with her Ulyana Sergeenko gown. (This time, you could see them.) And she accessorized with a Gucci clutch.

Peroxide blonde curls and a bright red lippie finished this loud look-at-her ensemble.

Rita Ora In Alexandre Vauthier & Moschino – International Woolmark Prize After Party

Rita Ora In Alexandre Vauthier Spring 2013 Couture

Rita Ora attended the International Woolmark Prize After Party during London Fashion Week on Saturday evening.

The singer wore another look by Alexandre Vauthier, this time from his recent Spring 2013 Couture collection which she styled with a black Moshino Pre-Fall 2013 coat with gold-and-white embrodierey

The midnight-blue-and-black dress with a gold-metal choker neck collar also featured a daring asymmetrical split.

Opting not to wear the designer’s preferred choice of Christian Louboutin heels, Rita upped the ante, wearing Jimmy Choo ‘Mogul’ gladiator high-heeled sandals.

A neon-pink pedicure, a berry manicure and her signature red lip and blonde wavy tresses completed her look.

You can buy Rita’s Jimmy Choo heels from Luisa via Roma US and Luisa via Roma UK.
