Rosie Huntington-Whiteley In Balmain – AEM Association Children Of The World For Rwanda Charity Dinner

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley In Balmain - AEM Association Children Of The World For Rwanda Charity DinnerRosie Huntington-Whiteley attended an annual charity dinner, hosted by The AEM Association Children of the World for Rwanda, held at Espace Pierre Cardin in Paris, France on Tuesday (December 17).

The supermodel strutted out a Balmain Spring 2012 plunging mini-frock, super-embellished in a black, white and gold beaded Art Deco-inspired pattern.

Although it delivered rocker-girl sexiness in spades, on Rosie, the glitzy-glam dress still retained an appropriate chicness. She did skip the waist-defining belt seen on the runway—not that she really needed it.

To complement the strong shoulder and leggy silhouette, Rosie put on a pair of high black ankle boots. She softened the look by styling her hair in bombshell waves, completing the effect with an exaggerated cat-eye and a deep pink lip.

You may remember Jennifer Hudson also wore this edgy rock-star dress, hers accented by a statement belt, last month.

Rihanna for Balmain Spring 2014

Rihanna for Balmain

Balmain unveiled the first pictures of Rihanna as the face of the French label’s Spring 2014 ad campaign this morning.

As someone who always gets first dibs on the collection, this should come as no surprise.

The Bajan singer was shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin for the campaign, posing seductively in a denim chain-accented piece and a pink houndstooth look with similar chain accents, both styled by her personal stylist Mel Ottenberg.

Balmain’s creative director Olivier Rousteing was positively gushing about casting Rihanna for this campaign, telling WWD “In front of the camera, she makes you feel like she is the only girl in the world. When the woman that inspires you wears your creations, your vision feels complete.”

Beyonce Knowles In Balmain – Mrs Carter Show World Tour

tumblr_mxtgjr0yts1rqgjz2o1_1280Beyonce Knowles continued her string of performances, as part of her Mrs Carter Show World Tour, on Saturday (December 14) at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois.

Having previously shown us glitzy garb from the likes of Pucci, David Koma and Dsquared², the songstress showed off a slightly sportier style in a custom Balmain number, which she wore whilst performing her new track, ‘XO.’

That said, the glamazon theme was still alive and well. The black-and-white romper was inspired by Balmain’s Spring 2013 collection, where graphic harlequin checks and ’90s-inspired power silhouettes permeated the runway.

She embellished the ensemble with an AllSaints ‘Valtari’ statement necklace, nude fishnets and black thigh-high boots, with long, wavy locks topping off this moment of her superstar stage time.

What is your fave Bey look so far?

Rihanna In Balmain – Nobu

Rihanna In Balmain - Nobu

Rihanna was spotted leaving the Gansevoort hotel in New York City to dine out at Nobu on Friday evening.

Surprisingly camera shy, the singer donned a Balmain Spring 2014 black long-sleeve leather jumpsuit which incorporates a white top as well as quilted shoulders and gold medallion buttons.

Her urban street-style look was accessorized with the same black leather Balmain boots with a gold toe-cap and the chunky gold jewelry we saw on the runway.

Barely-there makeup and a simple ponytail completed her look.

Does this look rev up her street style, or did she get lost on her way to a Harley-Davidson convention?

Jennifer Hudson In Balmain – Soul Train Awards 2013

Jennifer Hudson In Balmain - 2013 Soul Train Awards

Jennifer Hudson attended the Soul Train Awards at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada yesterday evening.

In the first of two looks, she wore an Art Deco-patterned Balmain Spring 2012 dress, which generously showcased her legs and décolletage via a thigh-skimming hemline and low-cut front. Just like the Balmain dress she wore a few weeks ago, this dress also came complete with long sleeves, padded shoulders, and a form-fitted outline.

She rocked her mini with a shiny black belt nipped at the waist, black studded lace-up Saint Laurent booties, and dramatic cat-eye makeup.

Do you think Jennifer nailed the sexy rocker vibe here, or is there a little too much going on in one look?
