amfAR Cinema Against Aids Gala Red Carpet Roundup

amfAR Cinema Against Aids Gala Red Carpet Roundup

Here is a roundup of some of the other attendees at the amfAR Cinema Against AIDS gala held at the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Cap d’Antibes, France this evening (May 22).

Toni Garrn: The model wore an icy silk skirt-and-top combo by Italian brand Redemption Choppers. The liquid-silk top is decorated with metallic needles on the side in an attempt to add an edge to the lingerie-inspired look. Toni styled this to perfection.

Karolína Kurková: Not a red carpet event has gone by where I haven’t loved what the model has worn; sadly, that came to a crashing halt today. Such an uninspiring, unflattering Dior look for a gala – or any – event.

Chanel Iman: The model opted for yet another Reem Acra gown, selecting a gold-draped look which she styled with a gold Jimmy Choo clutch.

Karlie Kloss In Chanel Couture – amfAR Cinema Against Aids Gala

Karlie Kloss In Chanel Couture - amfAR Cinema Against Aids Gala

Karlie Kloss returned to the red carpet this evening (May 22) for the annual amfAR Cinema Against AIDS gala held at the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Cap d’Antibes, France.

Following her disappointing Valentino look for the opening ceremony, this Chanel Fall 2011 Couture look is a vast improvement, although the navy dress, accented with tonal and silver pearls, looks like something Anna Wintour would wear.

Styled with Bulgari, the model, as previously, opted for comfortable flats for this outing.

Much improved, or will you never get her red carpet style?

Lily Allen In Chanel Couture – Ivor Novello Awards

Lily Allen In Chanel Couture - Ivor Novello Awards

Fresh from Cannes, Lily Allen attended the Ivor Novello Awards held at The Grosvenor House Hotel today (May 22) in London, England.

Continuing her unwavering love for all things Chanel, the singer wore a Spring 2010 Couture mauve sequined tunic accented with floral appliqués.

Styled with the same yellow Chanel clutch she sported last time out and her favoured punchy pink lip, the look was completed with a pair of quadruple-stacked Christian Louboutin ‘Daffodile’ platform pumps.

I had hoped we had seen the back of these hooves on the red carpet.

Cara Delevingne In Chanel Couture – ‘The Search’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Cara Delevingne In Chanel Couture - ‘The Search’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Having attended several parties during Cannes Film Festival, Cara Delevingne made her first appearance on the red carpet at ‘The Search’ premiere this evening (May 21).

The model wore a Chanel Fall 2013 Couture silver and bronze sequin mini dress served up with plenty of attitude and styled with a black and white Chanel clutch and black sandals.

A peach-coloured Chanel clutch would’ve been so much more appealing here, but for once I find myself liking the less-heavy-on-the-eye makeup look.

What say you?

Chanel & Vanity Fair France Dinner Party

Chanel & Vanity Fair France Dinner Party
With the fashionable force of celebrities in town for the 67th annual Cannes Film Festival in France, no better time for another starry party. Chanel and ‘Vanity Fair’ took the opportunity to fete the occasion on Tuesday (May 20) with a dinner at the beachfront restaurant, Tetou, where a bevy of Chanel-clad beauties were on the scene.

Lily Allen: The British singer-songwriter was dressed in a blue tweed frock with glittery embroidery from the Chanel Spring 2012 Couture collection, which she paired with (not pictured) gunmetal metallic pumps. The classic silhouette received a punchy accent via the embellished cold-shoulder sleeves and patchwork hemline. While her blue pendant earrings may have been unnecessary given the glitz of the dress, the yellow Chanel clutch was definitely a questionable blot on this look.

Jessica Chastain: Whereas Lily went for shine, Jessica kept her look on a more subtle level, donning a Chanel Resort 2014 white tweed dress with pockets. From her flame-red locks to her barely-there makeup and natural nails, this was the embodiment of au naturel styling. We can’t see if her shoes added a spark, but were you bored, or did you appreciate her breezy, effortless beauty?

Poppy Delevingne Weds James Cook In Chanel Couture

Poppy Delevingne Weds James Cook In Chanel CouturePoppy Delevingne wed longtime beau James Cook on Friday (May 16) in what certainly was a glorious occasion at St. Paul’s Church in Knightsbridge, London.

She was the epitome of a beautiful and blushing bride, walking down the aisle in a Chanel Couture wedding gown—a masterwork of magical floral embroidery, lace and beading, all cascading into a long, romantic train.

Much like Poppy’s signature style, this confection stepped just sideways of traditional with its structured mini-dress-like top half and style-forward sheer skirting from the thigh down.

The design came off as fresh and effortless—yet still so very elegant—despite its intricate level of detail. Her styling, including the light wisp of a veil, soft blonde waves and radiant makeup, was just as graceful.

As rightly pointed out by many of you, Blake Lively wore this same dress to the Green Lantern LA premiere back in 2011.
