Esprit Dior Tokyo 2015 Front Row

Esprit Dior Tokyo 2015 Front Row

A trio of Dior-outfitted darlings showed up for the Esprit Dior Tokyo 2015 Fashion Show at Ryogoku Kokugikan on Thursday (December 11) in Japan. However, their looks couldn’t have been more different.

Hailee Steinfeld: The starlet donned a Christian Dior Spring 2014 Couture embroidered, off-white silk cocoon-shaped dress with patent Dior pumps. Worn with nude makeup and a slick updo, the look follows Hailee’s sophisticated yet sweet style. Yet the hemline fell a few centimetres too short and the overall effect was too precious for my liking. You may remember that Angelababy wore a similar dress.

Audrey Tautou: The French star wore a Christian Dior grey wool embroidered coat with a Dior black wool top and cropped black pants, all accessorized with Dior T-bar heels and a mini Dior “Bar” bag. I’m not a fan of the shrunken silhouette of the coat or its gaping front.

Crystal Kay: Bringing a shock of colour to the front row, the Japanese recording artist stood out in a Christian Dior Fall 2014 orange silk dress worn with a Dior bright blue wool coat and a lemon-yellow Dior clutch. The contrasting hues surprisingly all worked together, yet it was the embellished nude Dior heels that really didn’t match here.

Katherine Waterston In Christian Dior – ‘Inherent Vice’ LA Premiere

Katherine Waterston In Christian Dior - 'Inherent Vice' LA Premiere

Katherine Waterston attended the premiere of Warner Bros. Pictures’ ‘Inherent Vice’ held at the TCL Chinese Theatre on Wednesday (December 10) in Hollywood, California.

On paper I shouldn’t be a fan of Katherine’s black-all-the-time minimalist style, yet once again I find myself totally captivated by her look.

The actress wore a black cold-shoulder Dior Fall 2014 satin and crepe flared dress styled with nothing but black Brian Atwood ‘Melly’ strappy sandals, a simple ponytail and a deep red lip colour.

Her style in part is much like Rooney Mara’s, yet Katherine appears to have much more confidence on the red carpet.

Felicity Jones in Christian Dior Couture – ‘The Theory of Everything’ London Premiere

Felicity Jones in Christian Dior Couture - 'The Theory of Everything' London Premiere

Felicity Jones took to the ‘blue’ carpet for the London premiere of ‘The Theory of Everything’ hosted at Odeon Leicester Square on Tuesday (December 9) in England.

The actress stunned in a Christian Dior Fall 2014 Couture dress that was nothing short of breathtaking.

Again breaking out of her all-black comfort zone, she wore this pristine, white quilted confection with statement embroidery. While the 18th century-inspired pannier-style silhouette wasn’t exactly figure-lengthening, the voluminous form was a risk that paid off in my view.

When styled with lavender metallic Dior pumps, a partless ’do, and a bright-pink lip, the frock fully took on modern, relevant appeal, rather than falling into an overly fussy trap.

The overall effect was one of precious doll-like quality—with a dash of edge. What say you?

Cameron Diaz In Christian Dior – ‘Annie’ World Premiere

Cameron Diaz attended the ‘Annie’ world premiere held at the Ziegfeld Theater on Sunday (December 7) in New York City joining Rose Byrne.

While I have fully accepted that the leg-baring sex kitten has perhaps gone for good, I can’t get excited about this Dior black iridescent tweed dress with an asymmetrical hemline.

It’s just a bit, well, dull. Which is a shame because everything else about this look, including the ankle-tie Dior shoes, I really like.

Lupita Nyong’o In Christian Dior – 2014 Massachusetts Conference For Women

Lupita Nyong'o In Christian Dior - 2014 Massachusetts Conference For Women

Lupita Nyong’o and former United States Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton attended the 2014 Massachusetts Conference for Women at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center on Thursday (December 4) in Boston, Massachusetts.

The actress wore a Dior pink trapeze dress with a Dior cream jacket styled with Dior Fine Jewelry and silver metallic Nicholas Kirkwood pumps.

I love that she continues to embrace colour. The pink and cream work so harmoniously together.

While the look is so very elegant, chic and event appropriate, I will admit my first thought was this would’ve made a great maternity red carpet look.

Ruth Wilson In Christian Dior – 2014 Gotham Independent Film Awards

Ruth Wilson In Christian Dior - 2014 Gotham Independent Film Awards

Ruth Wilson attended the 24th Annual Gotham Independent Film Awards held at Cipriani Wall Street on Monday (December 1) in New York City.

The British actress wore a Resort 2015 look from her go-to brand, Dior, selecting a Dior green and pale pink silk jacquard scarf top with embroidered black and white silk-blend high-waisted skirt topped off with a pair of metallic-silver Dior pumps.

There is always an edge to a Ruth Wilson look; here she channels that via the asymmetrical lines and directional updo, adding a ladylike polish with a pretty pink lip shade.
