Diane Kruger In Chanel Couture – Front Row @ Chanel Couture

Diane Kruger is a Chanel front row regular, so it wasn’t a surprise to see her at the Chanel Fall 2011 Couture presentation in Paris last night.

She took her seat alongside beau Joshua Jackson wearing a Chanel Fall 2009 Couture dress.

The German actress gives Cate Blanchett a run for her money by looking exquisite in her white embellished dress with an asymmetrical hemline.

Everything about this look is classic Diane; effortless, unique, timeless, chic and BDOTW worthy.

Gold Sergio Rossi sandals, a loose updo, pink glossy lips and gold earrings completed her look.

It’s interesting how this Fall collection has also been worn by Karolina Kurkova for the royal wedding in Monaco.

Monaco Royal Wedding Guests

Naomi Campbell wore a one shoulder Alexander McQueen ombre floral embroidered dress to the Royal Wedding of Prince Albert II of Monaco and Princess Charlene of Monaco at the Prince’s Palace of Monaco.

She accessorized with an matching fringed shawl, an Alexander McQueen skull clutch and a peach coloured fascinator.

I was starting to tire of seeing fascinators as we’ve had an overload of them since the British royal wedding, but I love how this one complements the floral embroidered and the bottom half of her McQueen gown.

Chanel Resort 2012 Press Preview

Last week I attended the first Chanel Resort press day in London.

The collection was the first resort collection to be presented back in early May at the Hotel du Cap, in Antibes on the French Riviera.

I got a chance to see a few select pieces including bags, shoes, jewelry, jackets, the thong boots, beachwear, day dresses, evening wear and pear embellished gown which would be perfect for the red carpet or a Gala.

The accessories – as always – caught my eye. I was particularly taken with the mini black top handle bag along with the array of sequin clutches.

I keep marveling at the attention to detail. I loved all the embellishments such as pearls, sequins, floral appliqués and beaded details. They really add a lot to the selected pieces.

Pearl accented necklaces with the trademark logo draped on the mannequins along with fine jewelry including watches, rings, cuffs and bracelets.

The room perfectly captured the essence of the French Riviera with pebbles stones and sea blue deck chairs.

So far only Clemence Poesy and Kirsten Dunst have worn looks from this collection.

I would love to see that ivory backless dress on Cate Blanchett.

Cameron Diaz In Chanel – “Bad Teacher” New York Premiere

Cameron Diaz turned the heat (and her hemline) up several notches for the “Bad Teacher” New York Premiere tonight at the Ziegfeld Theatre.

The actress, who’s had an exhausting weekend promoting this movie, opted for a Chanel Spring 2011 mini dress on this occasion.

Without the boots, this black and white knit dress looks even shorter on Cameron.

Despite the exposed bra, this is my favourite look from Cameron on this so-so promo tour. This is the only look I will remember.

Her favourite Casadei pumps – which she’s been wearing throughout this promotional tour – and gold Cartier jewels completed her look.

Who Wore Chanel Better? Diane Kruger or Zhang Ziyi

Diane Kruger attended the “Unknown” Premiere during the 61st Berlin International Film Festival at the Berlinale Palace in Germany back in February.

The German actress looked divine wearing a Chanel Pre-Fall 2011 purple asymmetrical flowing dress with embellished sleeves and bodice detail.

A simple black clutch and Gucci ‘Kelis’ platform heels completed her look.

Zhang Ziyi wore the same dress when she arrived at the gala premiere of ‘Larry Crowne’ on the closing night of ScreenSingapore 2011 last week.

The Asian actress also opted for Gucci heels, but her triple platform pumps are horrific with this dress.

Both actresses opted for minimal jewels, but on shoe choice alone Diane wins by a very long distance for me.

Blake Lively In Chanel Couture – “Green Lantern” LA Premiere

Blake Lively aka “Legs or Boobs” opted for none of the above at the “Green Lantern” LA Premiere last night.

I had been really excited about this premiere, but after looking at her in this floral appliqué Chanel Spring 2009 Couture bridal gown the excitement slowly wore off.

There is not enough ‘Blake’ in this look for my liking.

Whilst she does look absolutely gorgeous, I also feel that this look is far too vanilla for her.

I do love the messy plait and the gradual movement back to natural blonde hair colour.

Lorraine Schwartz jewels and sparkling silver pumps completed her look.

BDOTW?
