Nina Ricci Fall 2012

Upon arrival at the Jardin des Tuileries in Paris, prior to the Nina Ricci Fall 2012 presentation, we were met by a candlelit walkway which was very romantic as night fell in Paris.

Once we arrived in the venue we were once again seduced by the dim lighting and chandeliers which hung from the ceiling.

Peter Copping was inspired by a vision of a young girl exploring her mother’s and grandmother’s wardrobe.

She playfully mixes up, unpicks, re-sews and cuts up the pieces, presenting a contemporary collection of elegant items.

We saw a lot of tweed alongside silk, cashmere, silk chiffon, touches of fur and lots of sheer pieces.

Slip dresses and skirts were presented double splits with the right side lined. Sheer blouses were styled under chunky tweed skirt suits. Fur collars accented luxe wool coats and pencil skirts were worn low on the hips, as they would do if a young girl was playing dress up in mother’s clothes.

Key accessories included: lace-up boots, chic Mary Janes and a fur stoles with attached gloves.

I loved the bags. The ‘Smile’ was presented in patchwork python and quilted deerskin. The ‘La Rue’, which is a gorgeous grained calfskin or crocodile bowling bag will surely be a best seller, and the ‘VIP’, which is a bow-accented compact case decorated with coloured rhinestones which we will most definitely see on the red carpet.

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Kate Bosworth, Michelle Williams, Ashley Greene, Clemence Poesy, Keira Knightley, Freida Pinto, Naomi Watts, Kate Beckinsale, Nicole Kidman and Jennifer Aniston

Amanda Seyfried In Nina Ricci – ‘Gone’ LA Premiere

Amanda Seyfried walked the red carpet on Tuesday night for the LA premiere for her latest movie, ‘Gone.’

The starlet wore a blush-toned Nina Ricci Pre-Fall 2012 dress.

Her nude silk dress with a sheer patterned overlay was paired with Giuseppe Zanotti shoes and Nola Singer jewelry.

The dress is pretty, but I prefer a feistier Amanda on the red carpet.

As the lead actress this seems far too tame.

This look should’ve been saved for the new and improved Jennifer Aniston and Amanda should’ve called on her buddy Prabal Gurung to make things a little more interesting.

Clemence Poesy In Nina Ricci – Sidaction Gala Dinner 2012

Clemence Poesy joined an A-list crowd of gorgeous fashionista’s including Diane Kruger and Vanessa Paradis in Paris, France last night for the Sidaction Gala Dinner 2012.

The French actress wore a Nina Ricci Pre-Fall 2012 dress.

Her velvet black dress is very simple with subtle embellishments and rope detailing along the neckline and sleeves.

This uber chic look was styled with a Nina Ricci Spring 2012 clutch with a jewelled clasp and gold criss-cross pumps.

A simple updo with bangs framing her face and a pink lip colour completed her look.

Rooney Mara In Nina Ricci – 2012 Golden Globe Awards

Best Actress nominee Rooney Mara walked the red carpet at the 2012 Golden Globe Awards in LA this evening.

The moment we’ve been waiting for has finally arrived – unsurprisingly, Rooney decided to stick with her usual minimalistic look.

Rooney chose a self-described “comfortable” in her black Nina Ricci Pre-Fall 2012 gown with a plunging neckline and bow ribbon detailing

This is a subtle, girly detail from the stoic actress.

Her hair was styled in a lacquered, side-parted ponytail and natural makeup.

Fred Leighton jewels completed her look.

Keira Knightley In Nina Ricci – 2011 National Board Of Review Awards Gala

Keira Knightley attended the 2011 National Board Of Review Awards Gala in New York City last night.

It’s not often we see the British star opting for a head-to-toe black look, but she did so wearing a black Nina Ricci Resort 2012 dress.

Her cap-sleeve chiffon dress with a lace-front panel prevents this from being a typical LBD.

A Chanel handbag, black tights and black Roger Vivier velvet sandals blend into the background, so I wish she’d opted for pieces which stood out.

Wavy locks and dark coral lip colour finished the look.

Rarely do I say this about Keira, but she can do much better. I feel very let down by this look and I wish she’d kept the belt.

Shin Se-kyung In Nina Ricci – 2011 SBS Drama Awards

The 2011 SBS Drama Awards took place in Seoul, Korea last week, with many well-dressed attendees taking to the red carpet.

The beauty who caught my eye was Shin Se-kyung.

She looked very glamorous wearing a Nina Ricci Spring 2012 gown.

I’m sure this gown was on your red carpet wish list, because it was on mine.

This lovely lavender sweetheart neckline gown with gold metallic detailing around the bust was complemented with matching jewellery.

Despite the gold accents, Shin Se-kyung opted for a sparkling clutch and glitter-embellished peep-toes.

Do you think she played it right or should she have opted for simpler accessories?

A Week In Dasha Zhukova’s Closet

Russian fashion designer and magazine editor, Dasha Zhukova, was out and about in Miami last week, giving us a glimpse into her enviable closet.

On Tuesday evening, Dasha wore a Nina Ricci Spring 2012 cocktail dress to the Dior pop-up shop event.

The purple and lilac dress with 3 different floral prints was toughened up with a thin black belt, as seen on the runway, as well as Dasha’s addition of edgy, black leather gladiator heels.

To host the Louis Vuitton Art.sy Beachside Barbecue on Wednesday, Dasha wore a Christopher Kane Resort 2012 lace dress with a mod silhouette and raglan sleeves.

Metallic panels give this pretty dress a typically interesting Kane twist.

She accessorized with Alexander Wang Fabiana metallic leather sandals and a feather accented shoulder bag.

Dasha ended her week in another Nina Ricci Spring 2012 cocktail dress whist attending the world premiere preview of Marina Abramovic’s ‘The Artist Is Present’.

Black strappy platforms matched the black tulle peplum detailing on the waistband of her patchwork print floral dress.

Which of these three completely unique looks is your favorite?

Tuesday’s purple petal look with tough heels might just be a perfect combo.
