Rooney Mara In Balenciaga – ‘Her’ Rome Film Festival Premiere

Rooney Mara In Balenciaga - 'Her' Rome Film Festival Premiere

Rooney Mara joined Scarlett Johansson on the red carpet for the ‘Her’ premiere during the 8th Rome Film Festival held at Auditorium Parco Della Musica in Italy yesterday evening.

If it’s not black, it’s white. So, having worn a black Louis Vuitton dress to the photocall, she donned white for the premiere, wearing a Balenciaga Spring 2014 dress – our first look at this collection off the runway.

The crushed-lurex and organza-veiled dress was considerably more fashion-forward than Scarlett’s choice and I prefer this of the two, but I just wish I felt she owned the look.

As usual, I feel like she is slightly intimidated by it, however, this is still BDOTW worthy.

B Brian Atwood ‘Labrea’ white leather sandals, a half-up, half-down hairstyle and rouge lip colour provided the finishing touches.

Kate Waterhouse In Balenciaga – Victoria Derby Day

Kate Waterhouse In Balenciaga - Victoria Derby Day

Kate Waterhouse was very much at home attending Victoria Derby Day at Flemington Racecourse in Melbourne, Australia on Saturday afternoon as she’s part of Australia’s racing royalty; she’s the daughter of leading thoroughbred trainer Gai Waterhouse and the granddaughter of racing legend Tommy “TJ” Smith.

Unlike Lara Bingle, Kate managed to toe the line between being fashionable and event appropriate, wearing a black Balenciaga Fall 2013 peplum dress creating a petal-shape silhouette with a plastron front and halter neckline.

A sexy pair of wrap sandals, a white floral appliqué Alexander McQueen clutch, drop earrings, and a Nerida Winter and Hardy Brothers vintage diamond-beaded lace half veil completed her look.

Kate has always been quite fond of veils. Not always successfully worn, but on this occasion it added an alluring, chic finish to her look.

Nina Garcia In Balenciaga – Marie Claire’s Shoes First Shopping Event At Saks Fifth Avenue

Nina Garcia In Balenciaga - Marie Claire's Shoes First Shopping Event At Saks Fifth Avenue

After 3 weeks of travelling attending shows in London, Milan and Paris, Nina Garcia looked fresh as a daisy hosting Marie Claire’s Shoes First shopping event At Saks Fifth Avenue in New York City yesterday evening.

The Creative Director of Marie Claire wore an all-black look featuring a Balenciaga short-sleeved jacket with a petal hem which hails from the Fall 2013 collection.

As someone who tends to tune out when it comes to all-black looks, there is a lot I love here, starting with the jacket, with the cropped pants and edgy open-toe ankle boots giving the look a cool, effortless vibe.

Salma Hayek Front Row @ Balenciaga Spring 2014

Salma Hayek was also making the rounds at Paris Fashion Week, as she attended the Balenciaga Spring 2014 show yesterday at the Paris Observatory.

Pledging her allegiance to the Spanish fashion label, the actress put on a monochrome Balenciaga Resort 2014 ensemble that featured a black waist-cinching ribbon-belt detail.

The graphic, graffiti-inspired print, which was rather hectic, was further edged up with heavy, black McQ Alexander McQueen sandal booties.

Keeping the look both fun and fashion-forward, she wore black-and-white geek-chic Balenciaga sunnies with dazzling, circle pendant earrings.

Longchamp Flagship Store Opening

Longchamp Flagship Store Opening 14 Sept

Longchamp celebrated the opening of its London flagship store on Regent Street on Saturday evening, inviting a host of celebrity guests.

I was lucky enough to be invited and mingled with a host of celebrity guests across the three floors while being thoroughly entertained by Alexa Chung and Pixie Geldof, who were spinning the decks (see my pictures below).

Zoe Saldana: The beautiful actress, who is currently in London filming her next blockbuster ‘Guardian of the Galaxy’, looked effortless wearing a draped-front ivory silk blouse and shorts from Longchamp’s Spring 2014 collection, which she styled with a ‘Roseau Box’ clutch and taupe Louboutins. She was such a delight, happily posing for a picture for us.

Kate Moss: The model, who has a very strong connection with Longchamp having designed bags for the brand, was the one person who everyone wanted to see close up. She didn’t disappoint, wearing a sexy black keyhole romper with a unique whiplash leather belt, which she accessorized with a blue Kate Moss for Longchamp clutch for a pop of colour.

Alexa Chung: The DJ was in great spirits on the night, opting for a black vinyl Jonathan Saunders ‘Jemima’ bustier dress from the Fall 2013 collection to showcase her darker and sexier side, which she styled with a cute pair of houndstooth ankle-strap pumps. The ivory cardi was just for the red carpet.

Emma Watson In Balenciaga – GQ Men Of The Year Awards

Emma Watson In Balenciaga - GQ Men Of The Year Awards

Emma Watson joined Jessie J with a modish midriff moment at the GQ Men of the Year Awards, hosted at The Royal Opera House in London this evening.

The young actress showed off a wide swath of toned skin in a Balenciaga Resort 2014 ensemble, featuring an ivory silk serge bolero top worn with boyish black trousers in cotton canvas and black sequin sling-back heels.

Rosy-hued makeup provided a feminine counterpoint to the more mannish angles of the look, as well as the exaggerated, architectural detail of the sculptural top.

As we start to see the signs of fall, the cropped-top trend shows no sign of waning.
