Blake Lively In Balmain – Announcement Of The New Face Of L’Oreal Paris

Blake Lively In Balmain - Announcement Of The New Face Of L'Oreal Paris

Already the spokesperson for Gucci’s Première fragrance, Blake Lively was announced as the newest face of L’Oréal Paris via the brand Instagram yesterday morning.

The actress was clearly overjoyed about the partnership, saying, “I’m thrilled and honoured to join the incredible women who represent L’Oréal Paris. I grew up with the inspiration of their message, ‘We’re worth it’; what an important value to instil in women.”

Blake is in good company joining the L’Oréal Paris Dream Team, which includes Lara Stone (their newest ambassador), Gwen Stefani, Cheryl Cole, Freida Pinto, Julianne Moore, Jane Fonda, Fan Bingbing, Eva Longoria, Liya Kebede, Inès de La Fressange, Sonam Kapoor, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Doutzen Kroes.

Bring on Cannes 2014.

For the official announcement held at the Shangri-La Hotel Paris, France yesterday evening, the actress turned to another French brand, Balmain.

She donned a blue-and-white off-the-shoulder, long-sleeve Spring 2014 bouclé houndstooth dress with a pleated flounced skirt accented with a shimmering silver belt with a gold link-chain trim.
I love the dress. It’s so clean and fresh and therefore appropriate for a beauty launch.

The nude Christian Louboutin ‘Filter’ pumps with a shot of glamorous sparkle via her crystal-dipped heels wouldn’t have been my first choice, but they do an amazing job of elongating her slender legs.

I would’ve also preferred her hair up, but beauty does encompass hair, so glossy, flowing tresses were of course required here.

Jennifer Hudson In Balmain – Black Girls Rock! 2013

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.

Anna Dello Russo @ Paris Fashion Week Part II

ADR 1

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

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.
