Runway To "Lascars" Press Conference – Diane Kruger In Lanvin

Woohoo. She’s arrived.

Last night Diane Kruger attended a press conference during Cannes Film Festival for the animated movie Lascars, and she’s already giving us high fashion.

She wore a short pink Lanvin dress with puff sleeves, tights and Stuart Weitzman ‘Jardin’ T-Strap sandals.

This dress was originally presented as at top on the runway. Maybe that’s because it was too short to be considered a dress.

I’m not crazy about Diane’s shoe choice.

The tights I get because of the length of the skirt, but the angle of the picture ruins this a bit for me because I can see the inside lining of the dress.

Michelle Obama Wears Lanvin Sneakers To The Food Bank

On her 100th day in the White House, Michelle Obama volunteered, bagging food for hungry children at the Capital Area Food Bank.

The First Lady of Fashion was super casual, but still chic, wearing a J. Crew argyle cardigan, cropped pants, and snazzy Lanvin leather sneakers.

Her grey leather sneakers, had a purple metallic toe, and grey grosgrain ribbon laces.

I found a reversed colour version of Michelle’s sneakers with a patent grey metallic toe, from for £310/€345.90/$455.42.

The J.Crew cardigan was $188, but reduced to $99.99

Like I always say when it comes to Michelle, get it before it sells out.


Who Wore Lanvin Better? Maggie Gyllenhaal or Bibiana Fernandez

Maggie Gyllenhaal wore a custom-made longer version of the Lanvin leopard print dress that was presented on the runway, when she arrived at the Golden Globe Awards back in January.

She certainly stood out from the other actresses, because we don’t often see leopard print at major awards shows, but she pulled her look off well.

Last month, Spanish actress Bibiana Fernandez wore the runway version of this dress, with a gold pair of Christian Louboutin multi buckle sandals.

Both women look fantastic, but given the choice, I would take the shorter version, and Bibi heels are fierce, so she wins for me.


Lanvin London Boutique Opening Party

At Lanvin’s London boutique opening party, I am glad these two ladies opted for the most vibrant pieces.

Yasmin le Bon wore a three-tone blue one-shouldered Lanvin Spring 2009 dress.

She thankfully kept her accessories to a minimum, because this dress has a beautiful bouquet of floral embellishments that speak for themselves.

I love pink embellishments on the skirt, as they really pop against the navy blue. Her nude satin pumps completed the look.

Model Anouck Lepère wore a stunning nude Lanvin Spring 2009 strapless dress, which had glittering leopard print.

I like that Anouck wore her dress with a belt, to give her dress more shape, and her red double t-bar pumps were the perfect finishing touch.

Lanvin Comes To London

Tonight there will be an opening party for the newest addition on London’s Mount Street, as Lanvin first London boutique opens its doors.

Balenciaga, Marc Jacobs and Christian Louboutin have all opened stores on the same street in the past six months, so it’s in great company.

The new Lanvin store will have five floors of Parisian chic wrapped-up in a Grade 2 listed building, adding to Mount Street’s allure.

If you can’t get yourself to Mount Street, you can purchase Lanvin online.

Browns Fashion, and Matches Fashion have a whole range of Lanvin pieces. Net-A-Porter have accessories and shoes.

If you love Rita Wilson and Tilda Swinton’s stunning Lanvin pearl and chain sequin necklace, you can purchase it from Luisa via Roma for €1,026.

Rita seems to be wearing two, to add more drama to her satin aqua strapless gown.


Runway To “Duplicity” Paris Premiere – Julia Roberts In Lanvin

Julia Roberts is nothing but consistent. Her persistent to wear nothing but black, has got to the point that if she does wear another colour, I think I will faint from the shock.

Here she is AGAIN wearing black. This time she is wearing a Lanvin Resort 2009 black silk crepe trapeze cross-front evening gown.

I do like this gown, and I do think she made the right choice to wear this gown without the runway belt. I would have looked too contrived on Julia.

This dress is available to purchase from Luisaviaroma for €1,357.

She added a few droplets of colour via her black satin pumps with multi-coloured crystal detailing from the Lanvin Spring 2009 collection.

Lanvin Fall 2009

Lanvin’s Fall 2009 was created for the chic modern woman, who likes a lot of black.

I would kill to wear every piece, but after the colourful Spring 2009 collection, I was yearning for more colour from this collection. Their was one red 40s inspired suit, with a peplum waist – peplums appeared on many pieces. A few neutrals, steel blues, and grey features, but they were very few and far between.

Fur was featured heavily, with fur trims on coats, and fur stoles wrapped around models.

I loved the dresses that had ruffles cascading down the hip, and the strong silhouettes of most of the pieces. This collection will be a hit, regardless of the colour palette.

Oversize necklaces, feathered hair bands and long black leather gloves, were the main accessories for this collection.
