Cara Delevingne In Balmain – CR Fashion Book Issue No.5 Launch Party

Cara Delevingne In Balmain - CR Fashion Book Issue No copy

Cara Delevingne attended the CR Fashion Book Issue No.5 Launch Party held at The Peninsula Paris on Tuesday (September 30) in Paris, France.

Like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, the rebel model wore a Balmain Spring 2015 jumpsuit, opting to wear the look without the runway bandeau.

While Cara is working the hell out of the look, I don’t find those sheer striped trousers appealing.

I’m not bothered by the fact that her hot pants are revealed; I just think black trousers would’ve worked better for a sleeker, sexier look.

Who Wore Balmain Better…Kim Kardashian or Victoria Beckham?

Who Wore Balmain Better Kim Kardashian or Victoria Beckham

For the Vogue Foundation Gala back in July, Kim Kardashian wore a Balmain Fall 2014 military-style look consisting of a woven top and leopard-print skirt. She has since gone on to wear the brand on several occasions.

Having seen Victoria Beckham wearing the same skirt earlier this week, it’s become apparent that Kim has shortened hers.

Victoria opted to keep her look much simpler, shunning the military aspects of the collection and styling her look with black accessories and of course her trademark shades.

For some reason I think this might be a close contest in the poll, but for me there is only one winner – VB.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley In Balmain – CR Fashion Book Issue No.5 Launch Party

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley In Balmain - CR Fashion Book Issue No

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley attended the CR Fashion Book Issue No.5 Launch Party hosted by Carine Roitfeld held at The Peninsula Paris on Tuesday (September 30) in Paris, France.

The model, who had walked in the Balmain Spring 2015 runway show just a few days prior, wore a look from said collection and made it her own.

Her yellow, white and black sequined backless jumpsuit, which wouldn’t look out of place on the dance floor at Studio 54, was styled without the runway bandeau for a sexier look with a deeper plunge.

It’s the perfect high-octane party piece. Does Rosie sell it to you?

Victoria Beckham In Balmain – Out In London

Victoria Beckham In Balmain - Out In London

Victoria Beckham returned to London following a brief visit to New York to fulfil her duties as UN ambassador, so Saturday (September 27) was her first visit to her store since it opened in London on September 25.

Leaving the 36 Dover Street Mayfair location, the designer, who is known for her love of all things black, added a bit of spice to her look courtesy of her Balmain Fall 2014 leopard-print ponyskin skirt.

As much as I do think VB is her own best ambassador for her collection, I do love moments like this when she showcases another side to her style.

Keeping it simple with a black sweater, Manolo Blahnik shoes and a chain-accented bag, this falls into BDOTW territory for me… Does it for you?

You may remember that Kim Kardashian wore this same skirt back in July.

Balmain Spring 2015 Front Row

Balmain Spring 2015 Front Row

Olivier Rousteing presented his Spring 2015 collection for Balmain yesterday (September 25), sending some of our favourite models down the runway including Jourdan Dunn, Joan Smalls, Karlie Kloss and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Here’s a look at who saw the show first hand in the front row.

Noomi Rapace: Hmm… I’m starting to think that Noomi has lost her mojo. Usually styled to perfection, this zebra-print blazer and striped sequin dress effort doesn’t impress me much as the styling is so uninspired. You can tell she just threw it on.

Kim Kardashian: Seated in the front row alongside her mother and husband, Kanye West, to see her kid sister Kendal Jenner take the runway, the reality star made a better representation of a Balmain girl. Dressed in a Balmain Resort 2015 patterned frock, the piece was styled with Balmain lace-up booties and accessorized with a choker and cuffs from the Spring 2015 collection. Love her or hate her, she looked much better than Noomi Rapace.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley In Balmain – Coca Cola Life Launch

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley In Balmain - Coca Cola Life Launch

Having lent her gorgeous face to Moroccanoil earlier in the week, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley attended a photocall to launch Coca Cola Life on Friday (September 19) in London, England.

Opting for yet another plunging number, the British model wore a look from Balmain’s Resort 2015 collection.

The white cape-like mini frock with a black tie to the waist looks amazing on the lookbook model but I am not a fan of the modifications on Rosie.

Yes, wearing an original version would’ve been a tad much for the daytime launch, so saving this for another event would’ve been preferred to adding an illusion panel.

Hair- and makeup-wise she looked stunning, with snakeskin Giuseppe Zanotti sandals rounding out her look.
