Valentino Fall 2014 Couture Front Row Paris

Valentino presented their beautiful Fall 2014 Couture collection at the Hotel Salmon de Rothschild in Paris, France yesterday evening (July 9) during Couture Fashion Week.

Olivia Palermo: The socialite, who has been front and centre at most of the Couture shows, arrived wearing a Valentino Fall 2014 tri-colour white, black and red dress with a standard collar and colour-block skirt, which is the kind of dainty look we would expect from Olivia. We would also expect her to style the look with some interesting accessories, and she didn’t disappoint, carrying a green Valentino Gryphon fringed clutch and donning her favourite Sergio Rossi sandals. You may remember that Emma Stone wore this same dress during her ‘Spider-Man’ 2 promo tour.

Kim Kardashian: It was not a surprise to see Kim in attendance, considering Valentino Garavani opened up his Parisian estate for her and Kanye back in May, allowing them to host their pre-wedding brunch there. Wearing a plunging pale-blue Valentino gown (which I believe is from the Pre-Fall 2014 collection), she kept the styling simple, accessorizing with diamond jewels.

Emma Watson: Clocking up as many front row seats as Nina Dobrev, the British actress wore a Valentino Resort 2015 two-piece macramé lace bralet and high-waist maxi skirt, opting not to wear the white shirt we saw in the look book. I love how she gave this look an edge by donning a BLK DNM black leather jacket. The rest of the styling included red suede pumps, a dark-green M2Malletier Fabricca leather clutch and a single Delfina Delettrez ‘Fishing for Compliments’ pearl earring with two pearls. My girl crush deepens.

Who Wore Valentino Better Cate Blanchett Elettra Wiedemann

Cate Blanchett attended the opening night gala of the 10th Annual Dubai International Film Festival back in December wearing a gorgeous Valentino maroon short-sleeved cady gown featuring a column skirt and a cape-style bodice with overlay falling down her back.

What made this look so special was her breathtaking Hervé Van der Straeten ancient artisan-inspired tiered gold necklace.

Elettra Wiedemann wore the same dress to the New York Observer relaunch event, styling her look with red Jimmy Choo cut-out sandals and a Sabine G. white-gold necklace with white diamonds, emeralds and blue sapphires.

Elettra’s shoes don’t work for me; I find them quite jarring considering the simplicity of the rest of her look. However, with that necklace and her regal pose, this was an easy win for Cate.

Wedding Of Prince Amedeo Of Belgium And Elisabetta Maria Rosboch Von Wolkenstein

On Saturday (July 5) Prince Amedeo of Belgium and Elisabetta Rosboch von Wolkenstein were married at the Basilica Santa Maria in Trastevere, Rome, Italy.

The bride wore a breathtaking Valentino Haute Couture gown accompanied by a diamond tiara, diamond-and-pearl earrings and a cascading veil.

Her gown featured a high-neck illusion bodice and three-quarter-length sleeves made of finely dotted silk tulle trimmed in lace, which continued over the bodice of the gown. This lace detail and dotted silk tulle were repeated on the full skirt, which flowed into a light-as-air train.

Valentino continues to be the go-to designer for royal brides.

BDOTW 30 June 2014

There was a two-way tie this week with two very different Couture looks taking top honours.

Nicola Peltz’ heavenly Giambattista Valli Couture and Gren Wells fashion-forward Stéphane Rolland Couture dress both had 21% of the votes.

My pick was also Gren for donning the most unique look this week and for restoring my faith in Stéphane Rolland following Li Bingbing’s gown.

When it came to the fellas Ansel Elgort was the clear winner taking 43% of the votes for his military inspired Valentino look.

Alessandra Ambrosio In Valentino - GREAT Britain Reception

Alessandra Ambrosio attended the GREAT Britain Reception welcoming Prince Harry to Brazil on June 25 in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

The Victoria’s Secret model wore a long-sleeved white Valentino dress from the Fall 2013 collection with white strappy sandals and a Valentino bag.

The structure of the dress along with its lacey overlay give it plenty of visual appeal, and it shows off Alessandra’s enviable legs perfectly. I’m also loving how the white shoes pop against her brown skin.

An easy side braid, glowing skin and pink lips complete the model-worthy turn in front of the camera.
