Poppy Delevingne In Chanel - Charles Finch & Chanel Pre BAFTA Party

After a busy day front row at the London Fashion Week shows, Poppy Delevingne hot-footed it to Annabel’s in Mayfair last night (February 15) for the Charles Finch and Chanel pre-BAFTA party.

Chanel is a firm favourite for Poppy and you can see why in this elegant burgundy and pink ankle-grazing Chanel Spring 2014 dress. With a waist-cinching leather embellished belt, Poppy looked every inch the demure and sophisticated red carpet star.

A black quilted Chanel bag and classic pumps were all this look needed to retain its elegant allure.

I particularly like the cut-out sleeve detailing as it’s so refreshing to see a dress appropriately styled for the seasonality of London, and quite the opposite from the Burberry Prorsum dress Poppy had sported at Harvey Weinstein’s pre-BAFTA dinner the previous night. Do you agree?

Alicia Vikander In Chanel - Charles Finch & Chanel Pre BAFTA Party

Swedish actress and Chanel favourite, Alicia Vikander attended the Charles Finch and Chanel pre-BAFTA party yesterday evening (February 15) at London’s nightspot Annabel’s.

Wearing a black embroidered Chanel Spring 2014 top under a classic cropped evening jacket, Alicia kept her styling safe with a pair of rolled up skinny jeans and black courts.

I’ve seen this young actress in a variety of Chanel gowns in the past so this was a slightly disappointing turn from Alicia.

She’s an actress who really knows her own style and isn’t afraid to experiment just as she did with a stand-out Roksanda Ilincic dress at the Guldbaggen Awards recently, so although this latest look is lovely, I feel she could have done more.

Alicia did however add a kick of colour with her red quilted Chanel Boy bag. This is by far my favourite of the Chanel bag families and Alicia shows just how powerful a styling tool they can be. What do you think of this look?

Juana Acosta In Chanel - Bvlgari Private Party

Juana Acosta attended a Bvlgari private party in Madrid, Spain last week.

The gorgeous actress wore a Chanel Fall 2013 black velvet frock for the occasion featuring white cuffs, neckline and hemline.

Keeping the monochromatic theme going, she styled the dress with Carolina Herrera black-and-white sandals, adding a Bvlgari ring and the coveted plexiglass Chanel bag in the shape of the iconic Chanel No. 5 perfume bottle.

A bold red lip and simple ponytail rounded out this classic look.

You may remember that Julianne Hough wore this same dress earlier this month to Drew Barrymore’s book-launch party.

Jennifer Connelly In Chanel Couture - 'Aloft' Berlin Film Festival PremiereJennifer Connelly attended the ‘Aloft’ premiere, held today (February 12) during the 64th Berlinale International Film Festival at Berlinale Palast in Germany.

The actress, who earlier wore an impossibly chic Chanel frock to the film’s photocall, gave us a repeat performance of Chanel. Her black and white, feather and tulle gown from the Fall 2013 Couture collection was statement-making and sophisticated.

Both diaphanous and slightly directional, the sculpted, backless dress featured an interesting grouping of mixed textures that was nearly reminiscent of an abstract piece of art.

A small black Chanel bag was a simple, non-distracting pairing. She likewise skipped major jewels, letting the gown have centre stage.

I love that she finished the look with radiant, natural makeup, including a light pink lip, adding a final touch of edge via her knotted, braided updo.

Were you missing the wide black, dropped waistband seen on the runway?

Jennifer Connelly In Chanel - 'Aloft' Berlin Film Festival Photocall

It has felt like several lifetimes since we last saw Jennifer Connelly on the red carpet, but she was back attending the ‘Aloft’ photocall during the 64th Berlinale International Film Festival held at Grand Hyatt Hotel on Wednesday (February 12) in Berlin, Germany.

The actress, who once had a strong affiliation with Balenciaga, wore a Chanel Spring 2014 dress on this occasion.

Her black long-sleeved dress with a pearl-accented and gold-beaded yoke, back and sleeves was simply styled with black strappy sandals and a juicy red lip colour.

Chic personified. It doesn’t get much better.

I’m already looking forward to her blowing me away at this evening’s premiere.
