Balmain x H&M Collection Launch Party

Balmain x H&M Collection Launch Party 1

The Balmain x H&M collection made its global runway debut in front of a celebrity-packed audience in New York City on Tuesday (October 20).

Kendall Jenner, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Diane Kruger, Gigi Hadid, Ellie Goulding, Jourdan Dunn, Alexa Chung, Coco Rocha and Kylie Jenner were among the guests to get an exclusive look at collection designed by Olivier Rousteing.

As you would expect, many of Olivier’s classic pieces have been created for this high-street collection. While the celebs stuck to a black and green colour palette, many of the runway looks incorporated colour and embellishments.

As this collection doesn’t appeal, I will not be standing in line when it goes on sale November 5, but I do like Kendall, Rosie’s, Jourdan’s and Alexa’s sexy, yet powerful looks.

Kate Hudson In Balmain – ‘Rock The Kasbah’ New York Premiere

Kate Hudson In Balmain - 'Rock The Kasbah' New York Premiere

Kate Hudson attended the ‘Rock The Kasbah’ New York premiere at AMC Loews Lincoln Square on Monday (October 19) in New York City.

Olivier Rousteing knows how to make a woman feel alluring and sexy and this Balmain Resort 2016 dress is the proof.

Dripping in gold metal, this absolutely dazzling piece ensured that all eyes were on Kate Hudson.

While the silhouette is nothing new for Kate, you can’t deny she’s rocking the hell out of this look.

Kendall Jenner’s Paris Fashion Week Style

Kendall Jenner Paris

Kendall Jenner has been taking Paris, France by storm over the last week or so, spotted out on no fewer than nine occasions during Paris Fashion Week with a wardrobe change in effect at every step of the way.

Look 1: Adding a touch of sartorial androgyny, the model took a structured approach in a Solace London ‘Kusama’ top paired with Elisabetta Franchi high-waisted trousers, Givenchy ‘Pandora’ wristlet, Dior ‘Technologic’ sunglasses, and Camilla and Marc ‘Honour’ flat loafers. I love the vibrancy of the cobalt blue.

Look 2: At a dinner at ‘Le Gabriel’ restaurant with Balmain designer Olivier Rousteing, she naturally was wearing Balmain in a lace-up jumpsuit with ruffled pant legs. I simply cannot make it past the see-through effect and visible panties, so the rest of the look falls victim to the transparency for me. The Givenchy ‘Pandora’ wristlet completed the look.

Look 3: While leaving Laperouse Restaurant, she donned a Balmain logo-print tank top with Balmain Spring 2016 high-waisted pants, which was a significantly more appropriate than her previous Balmain offering. Her favoured Givenchy ‘Pandora’ wristlet made another appearance showcasing its versatility yet again.

Vogue Paris 95th Anniversary Party

Vogue Paris 95th Anniversary Party

A crush of chic beauties and models of the moment made for quite the spectacular showing at the Vogue Paris 95th Anniversary Party on Friday (October 3) in Paris, France.

Giovanna Battaglia: Everything was coming up roses, in rather dramatic fashion, for Giovanna who left no petal unturned in this Alexander McQueen Fall 2015 red rose organza and lace ruffle dress worn with a lace bra and black lace embroidered boots. I kind of wish that lace collar piece was missing in action.

Kendall Jenner
: The model went the sophisticatedly chic route in an Ulyana Sergeenko Fall 2015 Couture black velvet bustier gown constructed with a touch of youthful charm in the large collection of ruffle roses that dotted the hem of the dress. The finish of a ruby lip brought even more va-voom spirit.

Zoe Kravitz: Adding more rose-laced, flower-power to the proceedings, she rocked the Balenciaga Spring 2016 dress that she modeled during the label’s runway show paired with Balenciaga matching mules and complementary jewels. This is a more delicate side to Zoe’s style, but the full-on sheer story and high-waisted briefs has me fatigued on this occasion.

Bella Thorne In Balmain – Macy’s Presents Fashion’s Front Row

Bella Thorne In Balmain - Macy's Presents Fashion's Front Row

Bella Thorne made an appearance at Macy’s Presents Fashion’s Front Row event at Madison Square Garden on Thursday (September 17) in New York City.

Continuing to be in a desperate hurry to advance way past her 17-years, the teen actress wore a Balmain Fall 2015 sheer lace outfit which left little to the imagination.

Had this been worn by Kim or Khloe Kardashian I wouldn’t have batted an eyelid, but it feels so wrong on young Bella.

The only thing I like here are her Jimmy Choo ‘Liltyh’ sandals.

Naomi Watts In Balmain – ‘Demolition’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Naomi Watts In Balmain - 'Demolition' Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Naomi Watts attended the opening night premiere of ‘Demolition’ during the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival on Thursday (September 10) in Toronto, Canada.

It hasn’t been a great week for Naomi. First the David Koma disaster and now this.

I adored this nude Balmain Resort 2016 gown when it was presented, but Naomi breathes no life into it. She’s just overwhelmed with ruffles.

I don’t often say this, but I would love to see this repeated on the red carpet. Preferably by someone taller who won’t look so washed out.
