Rihanna In Vintage John Galliano – Spike TV’s ‘Guys Choice 2014′

Rihanna In Vintage John Galliano - Spike TV’s ‘Guys Choice 2014?

Rihanna accepted the Most Desirable Woman award onstage during Spike TV’s Guys’ Choice Awards 2014 held at Sony Pictures Studios on Saturday (June 7) in Culver City, California

Perhaps she should’ve saved her Adam Selman crystallized sheer dress for this occasion; I’m sure this audience would’ve fully appreciated it.

Instead, she kept her look really simple yet sexy, wearing a black silk vintage John Galliano spaghetti-strap below-the-knee dress styled with her favourite black Manolo Blahnik sandals and a selection of gold jewels.

She also kept it simple on the beauty front, with a glossy lip and shimmering eye makeup.

Iggy Azalea In John Galliano – MTV Movie Awards 2014

Iggy Azalea In John Galliano - MTV Movie Awards 2014Iggy Azalea was thinking pink at the MTV Movie Awards 2014, hosted at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California on Sunday (April 13),

She’s somewhat of a red-carpet wild child, so I wasn’t all that surprised to see her donning a creative concoction from the John Galliano Spring 2014 collection.

The bodice of the blush-hued dress was punctuated by a series of perforations and eye-popping, 3-D petal-like embellishment.

The techno, synthetic style continued all the way down to her Galliano footwear, as the Aussie rapper wore the same massive, cartoonish platform soles seen on the runway that delivered plenty of kitsch.

Too bad she likewise didn’t keep the sleek, waist-cinching belt—or the sassy coral lip. She did enhance the funky vibe via white eyeliner and a colossally teased and crimped, long ponytail.

Perhaps it’s her slouchy pose, or the shortened, just-above-the-ankle length of the dress, but this look just missed the mark in the figure-flattery department.

Allison Williams In John Galliano – Meet The Actors

Allison Williams In John Galliano - Meet The Actors

Allison Williams attended the ‘Meet the Actor’ session held at the Apple Store Soho in New York City on Thursday (January 23).

The ‘Girls’ actress wore a John Galliano Spring 2014 printed sweater top and flared skirt with black trims.

While I am the first to say that I wish to see Allison give us something other than the uptown/Oscar de la Renta girl, I’m not too sure this sporty look really suits her (yes, I have totally contradicted myself).

Maybe I would’ve preferred her look in the lavender hue we saw on the runway.

Thick black tights, black Christian Louboutin booties, Jennifer Fisher jewels, a simple bun and fresh-faced makeup completed her look.

Love or loathe?

Zhang Jingchu In John Galliano – Cosmo Beauty Awards 2013

Zhang Jingchu In John Galliano - Cosmo Beauty Awards 2013

Zhang Jingchu attended the Cosmo Beauty Awards 2013 held in Shanghai, China on Thursday.

The Chinese actress wore a floaty John Galliano Spring 2014 pink printed keyhole gown accented with a black patent-leather waistband, which she styled with a metallic-gold Bulgari ‘Lipstick’ clutch.

I love the construction of this formal, yet not over-the-top, elegant piece – especially the neckline.

Although I am not a fan of the clutch with this gown, I’m glad she didn’t over-accessorize the look.

Cameron Silver In John Galliano & Tom Ford – The WGSN Global Fashion Awards

Cameron Silver In John Galliano & Tom Ford - The WGSN Global Fashion Awards

Cameron Silver, founder of vintage emporium Decades, which is loved by Hollywood’s A-listers, was one of the presenters at the WGSN Global Fashion Awards at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London yesterday evening.

One of the presenters on the night, he didn’t fly all the way to London to be a wallflower, so he gave us two great looks – as we’ve come to expect.

Red Carpet: Dressed in John Galliano trench with a black Tom Ford bow tie, white Hermès Sur Mesure shirt, black Gaultier Couture pants and Bruno Magli pony skin slippers, I was surprised to see Cameron, by his standards, looking fairly conservative, but of course there was a twist with these bright red socks. It’s a shame you can’t see the details including satin trims on this exquisitely well-tailored trench coat.

Presenting: Now this is more like the Cameron I know and love. He did a quick change into a vintage Tom Ford for Gucci lush velvet tuxedo jacket with beautiful embroidered details – this picture isn’t quite doing the piece justice. The purple Tom Ford bow tie and Alberto Moretti slippers top off the look perfectly.

From 6pm – 8pm you can meet Cameron this evening, who will be signing his new book, ‘Decades: A Century of Fashion‘, at Selfridges, London in Women on 2.

The book showcases the past 100 years of fashion, decade by decade. Each chapter opens with a pair of women who epitomise rival hot trends, like the luminous Cheryl Tiegs versus the dark Bianca Jagger at Studio 54. The chapters close with a designer of the decade: think Chanel, YSL and Dior at their most fabulous.

Sun Li In John Galliano – Jimmy Choo Shanghai Event

Sun Li In John Galliano - Jimmy Choo Shanghai Event

Sun Li opted for a colourful, fashion-forward look for the Jimmy Choo commercial event hosted at the Massenet Hotel in Shanghai, China on Tuesday evening.

Known for wearing hot off the runway looks, she made a strong style statement wearing a John Galliano Spring 2014 yellow printed dress (which is slightly modified from the runway version) styled with a black patent leather belt and bright red Jimmy Choo ‘Farah’ booties with a twinkling ankle strap.

Having nailed the print trend while rocking an asymmetrical hem – which is having a bit of a moment – Li completed her bold style statement with a freshly tousled pixie cut, neutral lips and classic cat-eye liner.

Do you think she should’ve chosen either a neutral shoe or a bold, red lip to match the Jimmy Choo booties?

You can buy Sun Li’s Jimmy Choo ‘Farah’ Booties from Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus.

Rita Ora In Fendi & John Galliano – iHeartRadio LIVE

Rita Ora In Fendi  - iHeartRadio LIVE

Despite posing in a Maison Martin Margiela Couture look on instagram last night, Rita Ora didn’t wear the look for her red carpet arrival or performance for iHeartRadio LIVE presented by Bloomingdale’s yesterday evening.

We also now know that she only dyed the tips of her blonde hair both pink and orange to punk up her ‘do for Fall.

Red Carpet: Wearing head-to-toe Fendi the British singer wore a striped mink-and-knit sweater, striped mink skirt and leather booties with mink detail and sculpted heel all from the Fall 2013 collection. Beads of sweat are forming on my brow just looking at her in this outfit.

Rita Ora In  John Galliano - iHeartRadio LIVE

Performance: She had even more fun with her performance look donning a John Galliano Spring 2014 yellow frock with sheer inserts and laser-cut floral appliqués, styling the look with the black-and-yellow bow front wedges the dress was presented with on the runway. While I love the look, it may just be a tad too short and twee for Rita.

I know many of you do not like Rita’s style, so do you like either of these looks?

Front Row @ Paris Fashion Week

Front Row @ Paris Fashion Week

Here is a brief look at some of the lovely ladies who have been perched on the front row during Paris Fashion Week.

Ciara @ Givenchy: The singer, who has been both a muse for and a fan of the house of Givenchy for quite some time, donned a Fall 2013 look including a Givenchy abstract print sweater and a sexy Givenchy sheer Muslin skirt with a flounced hem.

Olivia Palermo @ Chloe: The socialite, who has been wearing a lot more high end than high street this season, donned a Chloe Fall 2013 navy blouse with polka-dot sheer panels with a light-blue Chloe Pre-Fall 2013 skirt styled with tan boots and a tan belt.

Lily Collins @ Givenchy: Opting to go goth with her ghostly makeup and berry lip colour, Lily donned the Givenchy Bambi print neoprene sweatshirt synonymous with the Fall 2013 collection as a mini dress. The Bambi-collage-print Givenchy clutch was a touch unimaginative, with black sandals completing the look.

Dita von Teese In John Galliano – International Beauty Show

Dita von Teese In John Galliano - International Beauty Show

Dita von Teese was a vision of perfection as she was spotted headed to the International Beauty Show held at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City on Sunday.

I was convinced she was wearing Dior, but she was actually wearing John Galliano.

She looked so very elegant wearing a John Galliano Spring 1995 micro-checked dress.

The vintage creation, with a bow detail on the shoulder and gathered, cascading detail on the hip, was styled with Fratelli Orsini black leather gloves, a black Analeena clutch, Moschino cat-eye sunglasses and Christian Louboutin pumps.

Looking like a sultry screen siren, this look ranks highly in her all-time best-ever looks.

I couldn’t find a runway picture, however you can see the dress in motion in the video below at point 0.43.
