Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Jennifer Hudson In Balmain - Black Girls Rock! 2013

Jennifer Hudson debuted a new ‘do on the red carpet for the Black Girls Rock! 2013 event which took place at New Jersey Performing Arts on Saturday in Newark, New Jersey.

In the first of three looks, the singer showcased her pixie cut wearing a Balmain black glitter jacquard v-neck long-sleeve dress featuring padded shoulders.

She rocked her hot look with Christian Louboutin ‘Mado’ lace-up over-the-knee boots, sheer tights, a statement ring and a punchy pink lip colour.

You may remember that Rihanna was the first to rock this Balmain mini to the VMAs after-party, ironically with the same haircut.

Fashion month wouldn’t be half as entertaining without Anna Dello Russo, so let’s catch up with our favourite fashion editor.

Christian Dior: Anna Dello Russo has been a fan of Fausto Puglisi long before the likes of Lily Collins and Bella Thorne fell for the designer’s charms. Once again she donned a Spring 2014 look fresh off the Milan runway, selecting a blue-and-black dress with a sculptured flared skirt with sequin palm-tree embellishments, styled with her favourite Tom Ford sandals.

Valentino: The quirk factor has been missing from Anna’s street-style repertoire for a few seasons – remember the season she loved wearing fruit on her head? Here her love for fancy hats returns, donning a black cap with Mickey Mouse ears with her Valentino Fall 2013 black-and-white look featuring Valentino black dress with a contrasting leather collar and cuffs with the Valentino patent-leather-and-suede T-bar pumps which are a favourite among the fashion set.

Celine: Having worn a top-to-toe Celine look last week, Anna selected another Pre-Fall 2013 look, donning a loose-fitted suit featuring a double-breasted blazer accented with gold buttons styled with black shoes with a gold-metal plate and her straw boater.

Givenchy: Anna jumped on the Bambi bandwagon at Givenchy. Like Lily Collins, she also opted to wear her sweater as a dress, adding a studded belt.

Front Row @ Paris Fashion Week

Here is a brief look at some of the lovely ladies who have been perched on the front row during Paris Fashion Week.

Ciara @ Givenchy: The singer, who has been both a muse for and a fan of the house of Givenchy for quite some time, donned a Fall 2013 look including a Givenchy abstract print sweater and a sexy Givenchy sheer Muslin skirt with a flounced hem.

Olivia Palermo @ Chloe: The socialite, who has been wearing a lot more high end than high street this season, donned a Chloe Fall 2013 navy blouse with polka-dot sheer panels with a light-blue Chloe Pre-Fall 2013 skirt styled with tan boots and a tan belt.

Lily Collins @ Givenchy: Opting to go goth with her ghostly makeup and berry lip colour, Lily donned the Givenchy Bambi print neoprene sweatshirt synonymous with the Fall 2013 collection as a mini dress. The Bambi-collage-print Givenchy clutch was a touch unimaginative, with black sandals completing the look.

Nicole Richie In Balmain - New York City

After hosting the 2013 Style Awards last night, Nicole Richie arrived at her hotel in New York City.

The designer put her stylish foot forward wearing a Balmain denim dress from the Resort 2014 commercial collection.

In true Olivier Rousteing style, the denim piece featured bold shoulders, elaborate gold-button detailing and a body-conscious silhouette, creating a harmonious military-inspired feminine mix.

Taking the military vibe a step further, Nicole added Bionda Castana ‘Roisin’ black booties with gold detailing to her look.

Rihanna In Balmain - VMAs After-Party

Rihanna joined Beyonce Knowles and Jay Z in the rooftop lounge of PH-D at the Dream Downtown in New York City on Sunday following the VMAs.

Not wanting to leave her cocktail behind, she was spotted leaving carrying her beverage, wearing a sexy Balmain long-sleeved jacquard mini dress styled with Manolo Blahnik sandals, the same Lynn Ban jewels she had worn earlier in the evening, plus a gold body chain.

This is a sexy Rihanna I can get on board with. Sexy without trying to damn hard.

“Why didn’t she wear this to the main event?” I’m sure many of you are asking.

I guess she didn’t want all eyes on her when she wasn’t a nominee, even though the camera panned to her several times during the live broadcast.

Lady Gaga In Balmain - Out In New York

We know that Lady Gaga has an obsession with Saint Laurent, but it would also appear that Balmain is steadily becoming one of her go-to brands too.

Yesterday the singer was spotting wearing her second look of the day courtesy of the Balmain Fall 2013 collection.

The bold-shouldered heavily embellished long-sleeved keyhole top was styled with black pants and butt-high suede boots, giving her Alaïa ankle boots a break.

I much prefer this over her second look. The top has plenty of detail to keep me interested, but I’m still waiting for Gaga to shock me.

Perhaps she’s saving that moment for the MTV Music Awards, which take place this Sunday.
