Who Wore Balmain Better…Sophie Marceau or Kim Kardashian?

WWIB Balmain

Sophie Marceau was one of the best dressed women during Cannes Film Festival this year.

One of her many looks was this striped Balmain two-piece Fall 2015 look, which was later worn by Kim Kardashian to the Sudler Forum during the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity.

While some may vote against Kim just because she’s Kim, I am going to vote for Sophie because her trousers are not dragging on the floor and because of the way she styled the look amping up the chic appeal.

Kate Bosworth In Balmain – ‘The Art of More’ 2015 Summer TCA Tour Panel

Kate Bosworth In Balmain - 'The Art of More' 2015 Summer TCA Tour Panel

Kate Bosworth attended ‘The Art of More’ panel discussion during the Crackle portion of the 2015 Summer TCA Tour at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on Wednesday (August 5) in Beverly Hills, California.

I was going to start by saying that I don’t see Kate as a Balmain girl, but then I recalled that she’s had some quite notable Balmain moments at ModaOperandi’s shopping event and the 2013 Met Gala; cementing her status as a part of the Balmain Army.

On recent trip to Zara the other day, I saw a green suede dress and I said to myself, “it’s too early for suede”, but Kate was not sharing that sentiment when she donned this Balmain Resort 2016 frock.

This is not your standard-issue day time dress. This sumptuous regimented style cut from beige suede and fashioned with bold-shoulders and lace up detailing is salute-worthy.

The Jimmy Choo gold metallic ‘Darylin’ pumps are a tad beige for the look, but that bold red lip helps make up for it.

Who Wore Balmain Better…Jane Fonda or Abbey Lee?

Who Wore Balmain Better Jane Fonda or Abbey Lee

Jane Fonda pretty much shut down the red carpet while attending the 2015 Grammy Awards wearing a Balmain jumpsuit, before Abbey Lee wore the red version to the ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ LA premiere.

Abbey should win this; being the model here, right?

Wrong. The model absolutely lacks conviction, Jane totally owned the look with the fringed choker only adding to the overall drama which was perfect for the Grammys.

This was an easy win for the actress.

Meryl Streep In Balmain – The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

Meryl Streep In Balmain -  The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

Meryl Streep made a guest appearance on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ on Monday (August 3) to promote her latest movie, ‘Ricki And The Flash’.

There are several words I thought I would never put in the same sentence: Lady Gaga, normal; Kim Kardashian, BDOTW and Meryl Streep, Balmain; but they’ve all miraculously happened.

We all know Meryl doesn’t appear to be that interested in fashion, so that’s why her decision to wear this Balmain Pre-Fall 2015 jumpsuit is all the more intriguing.

Possessing all the label’s signatures: strong shoulders and nipped waist. I would say this is a win for Meryl for its sharp sophistication and modernity.

Do you agree?

‘Paper Towns’ New York Premiere Red Carpet Roundup

'Paper Towns' New York Premiere Red Carpet Roundup

Cara Delevingne’s sister, fellow catwalkers and co-stars joined the model/actress on the red carpet for the ‘Paper Towns’ New York premiere at AMC Loews Lincoln Square on Tuesday (July 21) in New York City.

Poppy Delevingne: The socialite wore a dainty Dolce & Gabbana carnation print mini for the occasion. The accessories really sell the look to me; Jennifer Behr ‘Contessa’ Swarovski crystal-embellished headband and all.

Karlie Kloss: The model opted for a more minimalist Calvin Klein look while sticking to neutral shades. I have to say I love this look for Karlie. Her red carpet style isn’t always that great – although things have been improving – so this is win for her.

Joan Smalls: While I like her floral print Balmain Pre-Fall 2015 skirt, the turtleneck sweater on a summers evening is a head scratcher.

Who Wore Balmain Better Karolina Kurkova or Kylie Jenner

Karolina Kurkova was the first to wear this leather Balmain Pre-Fall 2013 mini to the IWC FilmMakers dinner back in May 19 last year, before Kylie Jenner gave the piece its second run-out during the 2015 Billboard Music Award exactly a year later.

While I prefer Kylie’s open shoe choice, the overall presentation – belt, hair and fit – from Karolina possess much more finesse so she wins for me.

Jada Pinkett-Smith In Balmain – ‘Magic Mike XXL’ London Premiere

Jada Pinkett-Smith In Balmain - 'Magic Mike XXL' London Premiere

Jada Pinkett Smith attended the premiere of ‘Magic Mike XXL’ at Vue West End this evening (June 30) in London, England.

While an LBD isn’t always my preferred option, I love not only how this Balmain Fall 2015 sculpts Jada’s figure, but also how the sultry vibe is amplified courtesy of the shimmering fringed overlay.

I also noted the softer makeup. Often Jada’s makeup can be a tad harsh, but the lighter touch has allowed her beauty to really shine through on this occasion.

With just a selection of silver Monica Vinader rings and Giuseppe Zanotti sandals, her look was complete.
