Who Wore Carven Better…Leila Bekhti or Victoria Beckham?

Who Wore Carven Better Leila Bekhti or Victoria Beckham

French actress Leila Bekhti Carven wore the ‘Garden of Earthly Delights’ skirt from the Spring 2013 collection to the ‘Jury Un Certain Regard’ photo call during Cannes last year.

The artistic print called for a simple shirt as presented on the runway. Leila opted for white with navy peep toes completing her look.

Earlier this month, Victoria Beckham was spotted at LAX also pairing her skirt with a white shirt completing her look with Chloe wedges.

There really isn’t much in it apart from the shoes. As I prefer VB tan wedges, Victoria wins for me.

The X Factor Judges Press Conference

"The X Factor" Judges Press Conference

Simon Cowell, Kelly Rowland, Paulina Rubio, and Demi Lovato attended ‘The X Factor’ judges’ press conference held at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Uniondale, New York yesterday.

Kelly Rowland: The singer, who also judged the UK version of the show for one season, stepped out in style wearing a Carven Spring 2013 pillarbox-red dress in a flattering silhouette with cut-out details at the waist. Her short yet sleek frock was styled with metallic-gold pumps. I am looking forward to what she’s going to bring, style-wise, to this show.

Paulina Rubio: The same cannot be said for Paulina, as I have never been a fan of her style and this flammable-looking electric-blue satin dress does nothing to change that view, although I do love her degrade open-toe booties.

Demi Lovato: Without a single stitch of clothing coming from Topshop, the only judge, excluding Simon, to keep her spot on the judging line up wore a blue Christopher Kane mini dress with her favourite Saint Laurent ‘Janis’ pumps and the obligatory studded leather jacket from 3.1 Phillip Lim.

Glamour Women Of The Year Awards 2013

Glamour Women Of The Year Awards 2013

Here is a roundup of the rest of the looks from the Glamour Women of the Year Awards 2013, held at Berkeley Square Gardens in London on Tuesday evening.

Laura Whitmore: The Irish TV presenter wore a Carven collage-newsprint dress from the designer’s Pre-Fall 2013 collection. The A-line dress has plenty of personality and I’m glad to see she has just as much fun with the styling, adding a Sophia Webster ‘Speech’ Bubble clutch and bauble-accented heels by the same designer.

Myleene Klass: The singer/TV presenter glowed wearing a Rachel Gilbert hot-pink strapless frock styled with Stephen Webster jewels. She took home the Entrepreneur of the Year award.

Joanne Froggatt: Taking home the Best TV Actress award, Joanne opted for a fall-like hue when so many others were wearing summery frocks. Her maroon Alberta Ferretti dress was styled with metallic-silver Jimmy Choo pumps and a Christian Louboutin spiked clutch.

Victoria Beckham In Carven – LAX Airport

Victoria Beckham In Carven - LAX Airport

The Beckhams were spotted at LAX on Saturday afternoon en route home to London.

I almost fell of my chair when I saw Victoria Beckham’s look on this occasion.

The designer, who tends to stick to a fairly neutral colour palette, has been stepping out of her comfort zone of late, but I was still surprised to see her don this Carven Fall 2012 skirt.

Her ‘Garden of Earthly Delights’ skirt, a modern interpretation of a Renaissance print inspired by Dutch painter Hieronymus Bosch, was an instant hit with the fashion ‘It’ crowd. You couldn’t walk to a show during New York, London, Milan or Paris fashion week without spotting someone wearing this skirt.

Victoria styled her fashion-loving-art skirt with a simple white shirt and her favourite Chloe wedges.

You may remember that we first saw this skirt on the red carpet over a year ago, worn by Leila Bekhti during the 2012 Cannes Film Festival.

Emmy Rossum In Carven – Out In New York City

Emmy Rossum In Carven - Out In New York City

Prior to attending the Jeffrey Fashion Cares 10th Anniversary Celebration, Emmy Rossum was spotted out in Chelsea, New York sporting a very colourful outfit.
The actress wore a Carven Resort 2013 look.

She teamed a lightweight cotton shirt bearing an illustration of Paris with a matching jacket featuring a notch collar and bracelet-length sleeves.

Instead of opting for a hat trick of Paris-print pieces, as featured in the look book, Emmy added a bright-orange Carven skirt (from the same collection) with a flared ruffled hemline to provide a more interesting mix of textures and colours.

A baby-blue quilted shoulder bag and tan pumps accessorized her look.

She has been on fire this week, both on and off the carpet. The actress, who claims she doesn’t have a stylist, is doing a very fine job on her own.

Saoirse Ronan In Carven – SiriusXM Studios

Saoirse Ronan In Carven - SiriusXM Studios

Saoirse Ronan paid a visit to SiriusXM Studios in New York City yesterday afternoon to promote her new movie, ‘The Host’.

The Irish actress wore a Carven Pre-Fall 2013 look, which consisted of a green satin shirt with the designer’s signature Peter Pan collar in blue, with a forest-green flared tweed skirt.

My attention immediately went to her feet as she was wearing a striking pair of Monique Lhuillier ‘Blue Kid’ black-and-blue python-print heels from the designer’s debut Spring 2013 collection.

Barely-there makeup and a simple bun completed her daytime promo-tour look.
