Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley In Balmain - 2014 Met Gala

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley looks fierce on the red carpet for the 2014 Met Gala in New York City on Monday (May 5).

The model wore daring Balmain Fall 2014 from head to toe.

The wild combination of leopard print, leather and gold was pulled together with dramatic hoop earrings, sleek straight hair, very classic makeup and nude nails.

Although this look was one of my ultimate favorites from the fall 2014 collections, I just can’t get behind the choice to wear it to the gala. There is no denying that Rosie looks phenomenal, but I don’t think this ensemble was appropriate for the event. What are your thoughts?

Cheryl  Cole In Balmain & Frame Denim - LAX

Cheryl Cole recently showcased her new blonde hair at the X Factor press conference, and if you’ve seen her new commercial for L’Oréal Paris’ Feria Go Louder, it becomes clear why the Brit beauty whips around the long, sassy, lighter ombre locks during the TV spot.

Making her way through LAX on Sunday (April 27), the singer looked relaxed wearing a street-chic look.

The look features a Balmain pink quilted bomber jacket from the Resort 2014 collection that adds high-fashion appeal to her street-style silhouette.

Frame Denim jeans are becoming the must-have jeans for celebrities; Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Rihanna and Karlie Kloss are regularly seen wearing this brand. Cheryl has jumped on the bandwagon with her own ‘Le Skinny de Jeanne’ jeans in a light-blue wash with a distressed aesthetic.

Adding a bit of shine to her look, the singer accessorized with Givenchy metallic-copper pumps and Ray Ban aviator shades.

Shailene Woodley In Balmain - MTV Movie Awards 2014Shailene Woodley attended the MTV Movie Awards 2014, hosted today (April 13) at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California, where she is nominated for Best Kiss for her smooch with Miles Teller in ‘The Spectacular Now.’

Continuing her impressive fashion-girl streak, which really came alive during her ‘Divergent’ promo tour, the actress took an edgier approach in a Balmain Pre-Fall 2014 army-green ensemble featuring a cropped leather tee, knotted high at the waist, and a matching leather, pleated skirt.

The mix of African-safari sensibility and hip-hop flair, prevalent in designer Olivier Rousteing’s collection, was slightly diminished here without the extravagant accessories and embellished waistband seen on the runway.

Still, this little number had plenty of power and panache, especially when paired with black Balmain strappy, statement sandals.

If anything, her gold David Yurman earrings seemed a mere afterthought—a bit refined and quiet for a look such as this. But Shailene knows when enough is enough.

Rihanna In Balmain - Front Row @ Balmain Fall 2014Rihanna was front and center at the Balmain Fall 2014 runway show on Thursday (February 27) during Paris Fashion Week in France.

The sultry songstress naturally wore one of designer Olivier Rousteing’s looks from the Balmain Pre-Fall 2014 collection.

The monochromatic, army-green ensemble, consisting of tie-front jacket, wrap skirt and oversized cargo coat, exuded a sporty-sensual appeal—especially given her more skin-baring interpretation. Even so, this look still retained a certain measure of sophistication to enhance the sexy edge.

More signature RiRi rebel-rocker elements came into focus via strappy metallic heels and a collection of knuckle and midi rings—not to mention a Cleopatra black bob and insanely cool, vibrant lilac lip.

Only the likes of Rihanna could pull of this hip-hop safari statement with such aplomb. This is how to make a fierce FROW entrance. Do you agree?

Gillian Anderson In Vintage Balmain Couture - 2014 BAFTAsGillian Anderson took to the red carpet at the 2014 BAFTAs, hosted Sunday (February 16) at The Royal Opera House in London, England.

The actress selected a vintage 1949 Balmain haute couture gown from WilliamVintage.

Colour-blocked in shades of blue, the strapless dress featured a tiered bodice, which tied in the back with scarf-like panels that floated to the bottom of the navy ball skirt.

In keeping with the blue theme, she wore matching gemstone and diamond necklace and earrings.

Even so, something seemed to be missing here. Perhaps a statement lip lacquer, or a different ‘do, would have made all the difference.

Jared Leto In Balmain Homme - 39th Annual Los Angeles Film Critics Association AwardsBefore picking up his Best Supporting Actor trophy at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards, Jared Leto attended the 39th annual Los Angeles Film Critics Association Awards at the InterContinental Hotel in Century City, California on Saturday (January 11).

Like fellow attendees Adèle Exarchopoulos and Lupita Nyong’o, the ‘Dallas Buyers Club’ star took a monochromatic style stand. He posed in a Balmain Homme black-and-white tuxedo jacket and black trousers, worn with perfectly matched Jimmy Choo ‘Gentry’ lace-up shoes.

It was a striking, and still quirky, statement from Jared, who we can always count on to bring a bit of edgy flavour to his fashion.

He did quell the rocker-boy boldness a bit by choosing to slick his long locks back into a ponytail. Of course, the slightly unkempt beard was alive and kicking.
