Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Rihanna In Balmain - Sporting Monte-Carlo Festival

Rihanna hit the stage at the 2013 Monte Carlo Sporting Summer Festival held at ‘Salle des Etoiles’s of Sporting d’ete’ in Monaco last night.

Sporting a lighter blonde hairdo from her last outing, she wore a cute Balmain white pleated and flared low back tuxedo dress from the Resort 2013 collection featuring gold-tone engraved metallic buttons.

I’m not crazy about the Manolo Blahnik satin over-the-knee boots, but I love the rest of the styling which included Lynn Ban jewels and a one-of-a-kind Christian Dior cabochon bib necklace loaned to her from Lynn Ban’s personal collection.

Jolin Tsai In Balmain & Alexander McQueen - 24th Golden Melody Awards

The Golden Melody Awards is one of the world’s biggest Chinese-language pop-music annual events. It had its 24th event in Taipei, Taiwan on Saturday evening.

Jolin Tsai worked two different looks at the event.

Red Carpet: The singer showcased her style credentials wearing a blue-and-black Balmain Spring 2013 harlequin-printed leather look with stud details and padded shoulders. Platform lace-up booties and a quiffed ponytail completed her look.

Press Room: The singer took home the ‘Best Song of the Year’ award wearing a gold honeycombed Alexander McQueen Spring 2013 strapless frock, stripping back the runway styling entirely, opting just for shimmering fishnet tights and black-and-gold heels. I love that she made this look her own. I wish we could see more of this collection on the red carpet.

Celebs Love Balmain Pierre Bag

Meet ‘Pierre’—the plus-one that’s on the arm of all the fashion femmes.

The debut handbag from the house of Balmain, this classy companion is the result of a collaboration between Balmain’s creative director Olivier Rousteing and French jeweler Aurélie Bidermann.

And what an entrance the timeless yet trendy ‘Pierre’ has made, what with its lush suede—in Anthracite Grey, Camel and Cherry colours—its roomy interior, and the edgy faux-ivory tooth that coolly hangs from the handle.

Initially spotted in the stylish hands of Kate Moss, the purse received a few extra perks with her custom monogram and furry Fendi keychain that added some fluff to the front.

Unsurprisingly, Gwen Stefani gravitated towards the crimson version—it’s the perfect match to her poppy-red pout and her rocker-chic standard.

Proving the ‘Pierre’ is literally a model accessory, the bag has also been seen with runway royalty like Miranda Kerr and Rosie Huntington Whiteley, who made the sidewalk her catwalk when she strutted out the camel carryall. Model-cum-actress and fashion-girl Diane Kruger is obviously also a fan, going for the sophisticated shade of grey.

Do you have a crush on ‘Pierre,’ too?

Claire Julien In Balmain - 'The Bling Ring' LA Premiere

The last time we saw Claire Julien she was wearing a stunning frothy gown, which was in total contrast to the look she gave us on Tuesday evening at the Directors Guild Theater in California for ‘The Bling Ring’ LA premiere hosted by Louis Vuitton and Vanity Fair.

Like her other co-stars Emma Watson and Katie Chang, she also wore a non-Louis Vuitton look, opting instead for a Balmain Pre-Fall 2013 dress.

It’s hard to appreciate this look for two reasons: the déjà vu effect – Olga Kurylenko wore a similar look with more conviction – and the fact that her glossy tresses are competing with the print and high neckline.

The only things piquing my interest here are her metallic-gold Louboutins and gold clutch.

Gwen Stefani In Balmain - 'The Bling Ring' LA Premiere

Gwen Stefani also attended ‘The Bling Ring’ LA premiere, hosted by Louis Vuitton and Vanity Fair at the Directors Guild Theater in California on Tuesday evening.

The singer looked uber cool and sexy wearing a Balmain Spring 2013 leather ensemble.

Her look featured a white halter crop top and high-waisted tapered pants, which she styled with Giuseppe Zanotti’s most popular sandals to tread the red carpet, as well as a black clutch and mirror-accented leather belt.

You just can’t fault this look. It’s perfection from head to toe without a hint of try hard. This is the kind of effortlessness Rita Ora tries and fails to achieve.

You may remember that Rihanna wore this same look with a different belt while performing on the German TV programme ‘Wetten, dass..?’ back in December last year.

Lea Seydoux In Elie Saab & Adele Exarchopoulos In Balmain - 'Le Grand Journal'

Prior to taking to the red carpet for the Cannes Film Festival premiere of ‘La Vie D’Adele’, French actresses Lea Seydoux and Adele Exarchopoulos made a guest appearance on ‘Le Grand Journal’ for French TV channel Canal+.

Lea Seydoux: The beautiful actress wore a long-sleeved Elie Saab Fall 2013 lace dress with a fit-and-flare silhouette, which she styled with a delightful pair of fuchsia-pink Christian Louboutin peep-toes which matched her nail polish. The pops of pink make this look. I have loved all her looks during Cannes. The secret has been the effortless styling.

Adele Exarchopoulos: The actress is fast becoming a favourite. She wore a Balmain Resort 2013 black-and-white harlequin-and-striped jumpsuit, which she styled simply with black pumps. Balmain clearly works well with her; however, I would be interested to see her wear other designers to mix things up in the future.
