Tilda Swinton In Valentino Couture – ‘Snowpiercer’ Seoul Press Conference

Tilda Swinton In Valentino Couture - 'Snowpiercer' Press Conference

Tilda Swinton attended the ‘Snowpiercer’ press conference held at Conrad Hotel earlier today in Seoul, South Korea.

The British actress, who’s known for her love of Haider Ackermann, Celine and recently Chanel, opted for a Valentino Fall 2013 Couture coat.

Her wide-sleeved mocha-coloured coat with laser-cut panels and a lace overlay worn over a silk taupe blouse was simply styled with beige pumps and a gold ring.

Barely-there makeup as standard completed her effortless, chic look.

I didn’t expect this piece to become a red carpet look; however, the one thing you can expect from Tilda is the unexpected.

‘Snowpiercer’ will open in South Korea on August 1.

Fan Bingbing In Valentino – ‘One Night Surprise’ Press Conference

Fan Bingbing In Valentino - 'One Night Surprise' Press Conference

Last time out, Fan Bingbing’s red carpet look didn’t fare so well, but she found her mojo when attending the ‘One Night Surprise’ press conference held at the Regent Hotel in Beijing, China on Friday.

The Asian beauty wore a pretty Valentino Resort 2013 pink frock with a white lace overlay on the bodice and a black satin bow.

This ultra-feminine, sugary choice is more like the Fan Bingbing I know and love; however, I have a feeling some will regard this dress as too twee for the actress.

With part of her hair pulled back, Bingbing styled her look with a pink flower bracelet and Sergio Rossi open-toe slingbacks.

Is she back to her best here, or do you have a toothache?

You may remember that Alexa Chung wore the green version of this dress late last year.

Maria Sharapova In Valentino – Porsche Design And Vogue Re-Opening Event

Maria Sharapova In Valentino - Porsche Design And Vogue Re-Opening Event

Maria Sharapova attended the Porsche Design and Vogue re-opening event at Porsche Design Beverly Hills in Beverly Hills, California yesterday evening.

The tennis player wore a Valentino Fall 2013 long-sleeved black dress featuring a contrast collar and yoke, a sheer organza insert at the shoulders, contrast buttoned cuffs and an inverted pleat at the front.

As someone not a fan of such shapeless dresses, I oddly find myself very intrigued by this look.

The styling, which included a gold Ferragamo clutch and black Louboutin pumps, is too muted for my liking, but works perfectly well with the dress.

A low-slung ponytail and barely there makeup completed the look.

Does this get a thumbs up or down from you?

You can buy Maria’s Valentino dress from Luisa via Roma US or Luisa via Roma UK.

Best Dressed of The Week – Zhang Ziyi In Valentino Couture & Pace Wu In Ulyana Sergeenko Couture

Best Dressed of The Week - Zhang Ziyi In Valentino Couture & Pace Wu In Ulyana Sergeenko Couture

You guys weren’t crazy about either Zhang Ziyi’s Lanvin look or her Giambattista Valli Couture gown; however, you fell head over heels in love with her Valentino Couture cape dress.

I had a much harder time picking a favourite, with Miroslava, Rinko, Naomie and Sandra all impressing, but my final winner was the gorgeous Pace Wu in Ulyana Sergeenko Couture.

Haute Couture Fall 2013 Red Carpet Wish List

Couture Wish List 1

With Fall 2013 Couture week behind us and the first piece already taken to the red carpet, here is a roundup of the looks I would love to see on the red carpet and who I would like to see wearing them.

Alexandre Vauthier Couture: This bedazzled and feathered confection has Grammys, Billboard Awards or MTV Music Awards written all over it, so this look gave me a bit of a conundrum. I would love to see it on Katy Perry because the blue would be divine against her pale skin and dark hair; however, with such a deep plunge and being so well endowed, it could be a wardrobe malfunction waiting to happen, so I switched my final choice to Jennifer Lopez, who would work that slit like no other.

Alexis Mabille Couture: While the burlesque queen Dita von Teese loves black, she does step out of her comfort zone from time to time. This puff-sleeved blouse and floral skirt combo would be a refreshing change. It would be too much to ask for the runway styling, as we all know she loves those retro waves and red lips, but I’m pretty confident she could pull this look off.

Valentino Fall 2013 Couture Front Row

Valentino Fall 2013 Couture Front Row

The front row of the Valentino Fall 2013 Couture presentation was nearly as drama-doused as the runway, as an array of lovelies let loose their fashion fantasies at the Hotel Salomon de Rothschild on Wednesday in Paris, France.

Olivia Palermo: Mingling hard and soft, Olivia is perhaps one of the few who can work a fluffy, frothy black tube frock, worn over a structured white button-down blouse, to her ultimate advantage. Never far from piles of accessories, she topped off her statement with a bronze and black gemstone necklace, statement cuffs, and a Valentino studded carved transparent clutch.

Zhang Ziyi: Giving us a red-haute moment, the Chinese actress stunned in a Valentino Spring 2013 Couture cape gown, worn with Christian Louboutin heels, Boucheron jewels and an Omega timepiece. The sophisticated, old-Hollywood spirit of this silhouette had me at hello.

Miroslava Duma: Many of you will be glad to see that Mira wore Valentino at the designer’s show, taking a bold step in this lapis-blue Valentino Fall 2013 frock. While her black tights and chunky-funky platform sandals could have raised some eyebrows, they really only served to draw even more attention to this retro-shift dress’s sublime saturated hue—and her red lippie.
