Freida Pinto In Chanel – Chanel Cruise 2015

Freida Pinto In Chanel - Chanel Cruise 2015Freida Pinto also jetted to Dubai for the Chanel Cruise 2014/2015 photo call, where she joined Tilda Swinton and Dakota Fanning at The Island on Tuesday (May 13).

The actress stunned in an eclectic look from Chanel’s Pre-Fall 2014 collection featuring a white ruffled crop top and a tiered long skirt in a colourful Indian-inspired maroon print.

Whereas a statement ensemble such as this could go so wrong, Freida worked the western angle to her advantage—removing much of the over-hyped runway styling.

Skipping the cowboy boots, she did accessorize with a few strong statements, including black double cuffs and a black-and-nude clutch.

In exchange for a feather in her hair, she finished the look with a sparkling headband and a berry-tinged lip.

Dakota Fanning In Chanel Couture – Chanel Cruise 2015

Dakota Fanning In Chanel - Chanel Cruise 2015Dakota Fanning joined Tilda Swinton at the Chanel Cruise 2014/2015 photo call, hosted at The Island in Dubai on Tuesday (May 13).

Also donning a Chanel piece, the young starlet showed off a masterwork from the Spring 2014 Couture collection.

The corseted midriff, which pervaded this collection, was present here. But it was the dark mix of multi-coloured, near-iridescent feathers that fluttered across the entire frock that really made this an exotic head-turner.

The artistry of the dress had me at hello, but I wanted to say a firm goodbye to the unpolished and uninspired styling. This would have been the perfect opportunity for a sleek updo, a statement lip colour and anything besides black pumps.

Tilda Swinton In Chanel – Chanel Cruise 2015

Tilda Swinton In Chanel - Chanel Cruise 2015Tilda Swinton traveled to Dubai for the Chanel Cruise 2014/2015 photo call, hosted at The Island in the United Arab Emirates on Tuesday (May 13).

Taking a slightly less mannish approach, the actress was naturally wearing a Chanel look, this one a black tweed-like dress from the Fall 2014 collection.

The full sleeves and defined waist created a subtly dramatic silhouette that the statuesque Tilda can certainly manage.

Black pumps perhaps were lacking inspiration, but they proved a classic touch whilst diamond door-knocker cocktail rings added a faint glint of luxe shine to the ensemble.

The overall effect translated as nearly cinematic with Tilda’s far-off glance and the background setting.

Lily Allen In Chanel – Chiltern Firehouse

Lily Allen In Chanel - Chiltern Firehouse

Lily Allen was back home in London following Monday night’s Met Gala.

Not allowing jet lag to set in, the singer was spotted leaving the Chiltern Firehouse in London on Wednesday (May 7).

Dressing up for dinner, Lily wore a Chanel Pre-Fall 2014 black organza jacket and skirt accented with black, white and red stars, which is an inimitable statement look which glimmers from every angle.

It’s possible that this picture was taken at the end of her night as the collar on her white blouse is undone and she opted to go sans bow tie.

Simple black pumps and a black manicure completed her dinner-date look.

You may remember that Diane Kruger wore this look with considerably more polish to ‘The Galapagos Affair: Satan Came to Eden’ premiere during Berlinale Film Festival.

Mary-Kate Olsen In vintage Chanel & Ashley Olsen In vintage Gianfranco Ferré & – 2014 Met Gala

"Charles James: Beyond Fashion" Costume Institute Gala - Arrivals

Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen attended the ‘Charles James: Beyond Fashion’ Costume Institute Gala held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday (May 5) in New York City.

While their kid sister Elizabeth Olsen opted for a summery hue, Ashley and Mary-Kate worked a dark colour palette.

As you know, I have probably never been a fan of their style, but on this occasion I found myself not shouting ‘next’ upon seeing Mary-Kate’s striped vintage Chanel gown and Ashley’s military-inspired Gianfranco Ferré.

Neither was unnecessarily oversized and both accessorized perfectly, with Ashley just edging out as my favourite here as I favour the sleek design.

My one wish, as always, is that they would stand apart on the red carpet so we could get a good look at their frocks.

Lily Allen In Chanel Couture – 2014 Met Gala

Lily Allen In Chanel Couture - 2014 Met Gala

Lily Allen attended the 2014 Met Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday (May 5).

Working many shades of grey, she turned to the Chanel archives in a Fall 2012 Couture gown, which was embellished by ballet-pink accents via bows at the shoulders and ribbon panels.

Sparkle came in the form of Chanel Fine Jewelry pieces, and dynamic nail art brought some sass appeal.

So, too, did her dramatic, overly exaggerated cat-eye and her sculpted, jet-black hair, which was piled high atop her head, perhaps in an effort to bring in more vintage-inspired flair.
