Blanca Suarez In Balmain – 15th Malaga Film Festival

Blanca Suarez hit the red carpet at the Cervantes Theatre for the 15th Malaga Film Festival in Malaga, Spain, on Friday.

The beautiful actress selected a Balmain Resort 2012 dress.

Her colourful printed long-sleeve dress showed off her gorgeous figure and enviable legs.

Black strappy sandals and a blue box clutch accessorized her look, whilst her luscious ombre wavy locks and wing-tipped eyeliner provided the finishing touches.

I’m glad Blanca didn’t opt for the belt.

Elizabeth Olsen In Balmain – ‘Silent House’ Premiere

Elizabeth Olsen was in New York City last night to promote her latest movie, ‘Silent House’ at AMC Loews Lincoln Square.

The young actress wore a simple long sleeve black dress which she paired with a Balmain Spring 2012 jacket.

Her ivory jacket with gold embroidered details is the perfect example of making a look work for your style.

She didn’t try to give us Kate Moss just because she was wearing Balmain. She nonchalantly added the piece to her look along with a blue The Row clutch and black pumps with gold micro studs.

Flawless makeup made her baby blue eyes pop and she added a nude glossy lip colour to her look.

Katy Perry In Balmain – Maison Du Caviar Party

The thing about Zoe Saldana is she makes Balmain look so easy to wear.

Just last weekend she donned a sexy frock from the Spring 2012 collection, and despite the overtly sexy nature of the dress, she still looked classy.

Can the same be said for Katy Perry?

She wore a gold-beaded plunging Balmain Spring 2012 dress to the Maison Du Caviar party in Paris yesterday evening.

I have two problems with this look: the hair and the boobage.

The hair is an ongoing issue as it doesn’t work with everything…case-in-point.

The boobage is too much for this sexy dress. The pin which has shortened the plunge looks like it is about to give way at any moment.

It’s a no from me.

Balmain Fall 2012

Olivier Rousteing’s second season as creative director of Balmain proved to be more spectacular than the first.

With the French designer taking inspiration from the Fabergé eggs Richard Burton gave to Elizabeth Taylor, cue quilted signature military-inspired jackets, and skin-tight dresses adorned with pearls, crystals and beads.

I loved the rich baroque prints with leather lacing and pearl embellishments.

Pearls were everywhere, expect for the rich velvet pants, dresses and skirts, which were Balmainified with chunky belts with gold hardware.

We also saw leather jackets, tuxedo jackets with satin lapels and pyjama-style pieces covered with pearl embroidery. These were my favourite pieces within the collection.

The collection was part androgynous, part ultra-sexy with sleek silhouettes on a colour palette of rich forest green, nude and black.

I wouldn’t be surprised if Zoe Saldana has already placed her order for several pieces from this collection.

Front Row: Anna Wintour and Anna Dello Russo

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Tilda Swinton, Celine Dion, Noomi Rapace, Zoe Saldana, Ciara, Rihanna, Kristen Stewart, Halle Berry, Emmanuelle Alt and Zoe Kravitz
