Celine Dion In Jil Sander – George V Hotel

Celine Dion and her husband, René Angélil, were spotted leaving ‘George V’ Hotel in Paris, France this afternoon.

The singer, who has reignited our girl crush for her splendid style, wore a Jil Sander Fall 2012 coat.

Her notched-lapel oversized wool coat with wide three-quarter length sleeves was styled with a light-grey scarf, dark-grey skinny jeans and nude accessories, including a Celine tote and pointy pumps.

What I’ve learned from this look is that grey and nude work so well together and that I also want to raid Celine’s closet.

You can buy Celine’s Jil Sander coat from farfetch.com US and farfetch.com.

Who Wore Jil Sander Better…Gui Lun Mei or Kasia Smutniak?

Gui Lun Mei attended the 14th Taipei Film Festival awards ceremony in Taipei, Taiwan, back in July, wearing my favourite piece from the Jil Sander Fall 2012 collection.

Her elegant navy wool dress which sits just off the shoulder was styled with simple black heels.

Kasia Smutniak, the breakout star of the 2012 Venice Film Festival, wore the same dress for photocall prior to the festival which announced her as the host of the opening and closing ceremonies.

While I prefer Kasia’s shoe choice, the illusion panel didn’t match her skin tone which I found bothersome, so Gui wins for me.

Jil Sander Spring 2013

The Jil Sander Spring 2013 collection can be summed up in a few words: simple, clean lines.

Jil, who returned to her namesake line in February after eight years, reminded us of her signature design aesthetic by serving up tailored separates, sleeveless dresses, oversized blazers, tulip skirts, A-line coats and pinafores, with plenty of cocoon shapes and oversized pockets on a mostly black, white, navy and maroon colour palette with the odd pop of red.

I loved a lot of this collection, but my favourites were presented towards the end with a selection of white pieces accented with iridescent polka dots.

Pale faced models sported a center-parted ponytail.

Key accessories included wristlet clutches, booties and two-tone knee-high boots with an asymmetrical zipper.

Front Row: Anna Dello Russo

Favourites: White shirt paired with white polka-dot skirt and white bell-sleeve blouse with red tulip skirt

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Tilda Swinton, Nicole Kidman, Leelee Sobieski, Victoria Beckham, Gwyneth Paltrow, Cate Blanchett

Clotilde Courau In Jil Sander – 2012 Deauville American Film Festival Opening Ceremony

Clotilde Courau attended the 2012 Deauville American Film Festival opening ceremony on Friday evening.

The Princess of Venice and Piedmont was radiant wearing a Jil Sander Fall 2012 dress. It’s great to see this collection finally receiving more attention by celebrities.

Her pretty pink bustier dress with a gathered skirt was styled with matching pink platform pumps, with dazzling jewels including a spectacular cocktail ring.

A side-parted modern updo completed her breathtaking look.

Kasia Smutniak In Jil Sander – 69th Venice International Film Festival Photocall

Before Venice Film Festival officially starts tomorrow, Kasia Smutniak attended a photocall yesterday afternoon to announce herself as the host of the 69th Venice International Film Festival’s Opening and Closing ceremonies.

The Polish-born actress and model wore a Jil Sander Fall 2012 dress for the occasion.

I would’ve loved this charming navy wool off-the-shoulder dress with a charming sweetheart neckline and a cinched-in waist which has the nude-illusion panel in the centre that matched her skin tone.

I find the contrast slightly distracting.

The actress was right to opt for the minimalist approach, keeping the look clean and only selecting neutral pumps, but I just can’t get over the glaring keyhole issue.

You may remember that Gui Lun Mei wore this same dress to the Taipei Film Festival Awards last month.

Kirsten Dunst In Jil Sander – The Tonight Show with Jay Leno

Kirsten Dunst made a guest appearance on ‘The Tonight Show with Jay Leno’ on Thursday evening to promote her latest movie, ‘Bachelorette’.

Despite the many summery pieces available from Raf Simons’ last Jil Sander Fall 2012 collection, the actress picked a very sombre black strapless dress.

This dress would’ve been perfect on the red carpet promoting a period piece, but she’s promoting a high-jinks summer comedy, so the whole look is hugely disconnected for me.

I may have got on board had she selected the runway heels, but then there’s the issue of the fit on the bust, which appears to be too tight.

Chloe black suede pumps, flawless make-up and a centre-parted bun completed her beautiful look; it’s just a shame it’s too grand for the occasion.
