Krysten Ritter In Balmain – Ocean Drive Magazine December Cover Party

Krysten Ritter In Balmain - Ocean Drive Magazine December Cover Party

Krysten Ritter attended the launch of her Ocean Drive Magazine December Cover held at the W South Beach on Friday (December 5) in Miami Beach, Florida.

The actress wore a Balmain frock with all the regimented traits of the French brand – bold shoulders, nipped-in waist and ultra-short length – yet it was rendered in a sweet bubblegum-pink shade.

Studded Giuseppe Zanotti pumps and a black Jimmy Choo clutch accessorised the look, with a light pink lip colour rounding it out.

Too sugary, or a look that couldn’t be more on point for her uber-girlie style?

Models @ The 2014 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show After-Party

Models @ The 2014 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show After-Party

Aside from Taylor Swift’s after-party look, there wasn’t much to shout about on the red carpet at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show held at London’s Earls Court on Tuesday (December 2) which had a distinct black or white theme.

Karlie Kloss: Standing out for its non-revealing nature was Karlie Kloss’s look. The figure-hugging silhouette and sexy slit worked in an artful juxtaposition with the demure high neck and almost Victorian bow to the neckline of the Alexander McQueen dress, which was styled with a skull-clasp clutch.

Alessandra Ambrosio: Too tight and so tacky. That pretty much sums up my feelings about this ridiculous yet expected Balmain Spring 2015 look. A sure contender for WDOTY.

Candice Swanepoel: Also taking the revealing route was Candice, whose Zuhair Murad white floral embroidered sheer long-sleeve Spring 2015 gown left precious little to the imagination.

Kim Kardashian In Balmain, Alexander McQueen & Torn by Ronny Kobo – ‘Fleur Fatale’ Dubai Fragrance Launch

Kim Kardashian In Balmain, Alexander McQueen & Torn by Ronny Kobo - 'Fleur Fatale' Dubai Fragrance Launch

Kim Kardashian is currently in Dubai where she is promoting her latest fragrance ‘Fleur Fatale’.

She kicked off her Monday night (November 24) with a launch event at Parfum Monde, before celebrating with an after party.

Launch Event: The reality star showed off her famous curves in a black Balmain knotted crop top with high-waisted Alexander McQueen smart trousers. Had she not been wearing a crop top, I would’ve been convinced she was wearing a corset of some kind, as she has a minuscule waist. The look was again complete with slicked-back tresses finished off with a bright red lip.

Party: Her second curve-enhancing look of the evening was a white Torn by Ronny Kobo halter dress rendered with a sleek allure with its sleek silhouette. Keeping the same hairstyle, the look was accessorized with her favourite Givenchy sandals.

Alessandra Ambrosio In Balmain & Azzaro Couture – 2014 Latin Grammy Awards

Alessandra Ambrosio In Balmain & Azzaro Couture - 2014 Latin Grammy Awards

Alessandra Ambrosio attended the 15th Annual Latin Grammy Awards held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on Thursday (November 20) in Las Vegas, Nevada where she served up two looks.

Red Carpet: Her first look of the evening was a Balmain Resort 2015 caped mini frock with a plunging neckline which will instantly make you recall a similar look Kim Kardashian wore to the VMAs a few months ago. I can’t say I’m a huge fan of the look. While she has the legs for it, I feel I have been there and done that with this piece, especially considering that Joan Smalls has been the only one to make this look work. At this point I do wish she’d work that Emilio Pucci frock I had for her on my wish list.

Show: I was even less enthused by the Azzaro Spring 2014 Couture white dress with an illusion panel outlined by crystal embellishments that she wore while presenting. Cut it at the thigh and it would make a great costume for ‘Dancing with the Stars’.

Not a great night for the gorgeous model.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley In Balmain – Harper’s Bazaar Women of the Year Awards

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley In Balmain - Harper’s Bazaar Women of the Year Awards

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley attended the Harper’s Bazaar Women of the Year Awards held at Claridge’s Hotel on Tuesday (November 4) in London, England, where she picked up the Model of the Year award.

It was Balmain again for the British beauty, who wore yet another trouser ensemble from the French brand’s Spring 2015 collection accented with a wide leather belt and styled with a gold-trimmed black choker.

Rosie looks great, there will be no denying of that fact, yet I miss her Antonio Berardi, Emilio Pucci and Gucci days.

This Balmain period is a bit stuck on repeat for my liking. I would like to see her return to more variety.

Having a case of déjà vu? Cara Delevingne wore parts of this look last month.

Juno Temple In Balmain – ‘Horns’ New York Premiere

Juno Temple In Balmain - 'Horns' New York Premiere

Juno Temple attended the New York premiere of ‘Horns’ held at Landmark’s Sunshine Cinema on Monday (October 27) in New York City.

Tuxedo dressing becomes a truly feminine proposition with this Balmain Resort 2015 frock.

It’s the yellow satin peaked lapels, cuffs and faux pockets plus gold military-style buttons that really elevate this dress to showpiece status.

Tempering the hemline with chunky platform heels, the actress also accessorized with a gold Edie Parker ‘Dani’ clutch.

What I love most about this look, and what seals it for me, is the sleek tresses which replace her signature wild curls.

She totally sells this look to me from head to toe. Is it working for you?
