Gwen Stefani In Balmain – ‘The Bling Ring’ LA Premiere

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’

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.

Lea Seydoux and Adele Exarchopoulos were inseparable once again this evening as they took to the red carpet for the Cannes Film Festival premiere for ‘La Vie D’Adele’ premiere on Thursday evening.

Adele Exarchopoulos: The French actress wore a Balmain ensemble from the Spring 2013 collection. Her silver, white and black harlequin woven look was styled with a Mel C tight ponytail and simple black pumps.

Lea Seydoux: Lea was the ying to Adele’s yang, opting for a very simple black Armani gown with emerald stone statement earrings. She, too, opted for a slick back ‘do.

Models @ amfAR’s 20th Annual Cinema Against AIDS

Models @ amfar 1

Here is a round up of all the models who took to the red carpet on Thursday evening for the amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala held at Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Cap d’Antibes, France on Thursday evening before taking to the runway for the fashion show.

Karolina Kurkova: Cavalli created an uber hot black cut-out gown for the sensational Kurkova. This woman couldn’t look bad if she tried. Aside from the serpent bracelet, she let the gown do all the talking…and it’s sayin’ “don’t I look hot?”

Joan Smalls: The gorgeous model worked a Givenchy Fall 2013 floral sequin sheer gown with a sheer sweater with leather appliqués. I had expected Ciara to have worn one of these looks by now. I didn’t have high hopes for this portion of the collection, but it does translate rather nicely off the runway. I am intrigued to see the look sans sweater.

Karlie Kloss: Is she just not trying anymore? The model wore a Louis Vuitton Pre-Fall 2013 look which is uber chic, but just not enough for a gala event. She could’ve worn anything she wanted, so I wonder why she chose to wear this. Maybe she just wanted to be less obvious like many of her fellow models at this event.

Karolina Kurkova In Balmain - 'For The Love Of Cinema' Event

Karolina Kurkova attended the ‘For The Love Of Cinema’ event hosted by Swiss luxury watch manufacturer IWC Schaffhausen at the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Antibes, France on Sunday alongside Naomi Watts.

The supermodel opted for a high-neck Balmain Pre-Fall 2013 long-sleeved black leather mini dress with gold piping throughout.

Her legs seem to go on for days in this look, which she styled with a gold-embellished belt and black booties.

Is it me, or are all these Balmain dresses starting to all look the same?

Miley Cyrus In Balmain – 2013 Billboard Music Awards

Miley Cyrus In Balmain - 2013 Billboard Music Awards
Miley Cyrus looked like the most glam race-car-driver ever at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards tonight, hosted by Tracy Morgan at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The entertainer skipped out on the gown memo and marched to the beat of her own flashy fashion drum in this power jumpsuit from the Balmain Spring 2013 collection.

Featuring glittery black-and-silver harlequin checks, overlaid with lacy basketry-inspired embroidery, this look was bold, brash and had the level of bravura that we’ve come to expect with the pompadour-flaunting starlet.

Even with the ’90s-era extravagance, I still found myself fascinated by this over-the-top moment. I almost wish Miley had taken it all the way by wearing the runway’s hula hoop earrings.

That platinum quiff and a deep scarlet lip completed the sporty glamazon-rocker effect.
