Tilda Swinton In Lanvin – Lanvin Fall 2012 Presentation

Tilda Swinton joined Jessica Alba in the front row for the Lanvin Fall 2012 presentation on Friday evening during Paris Fashion Week.

Tilda looked regal in a long-sleeved Lanvin maroon dress with deep burgundy panel down one side.

The beautifully draped dress was cinched with a thin black grosgrain belt.

While this colour looks beautiful with Tilda’s fair skin, I’m a bit perplexed by her chunky shoe choice.

When you’re Tilda Swinton, you can get away with a lot, fashion-wise, but those shoes are just awful.

Ginnifer Goodwin In Shoshanna – ‘Extra’ Appearance

Ginnifer Goodwin stopped the Grove in L.A. on Friday for a taping of the television show, ‘Extra.’

After over-accessorizing at the 2012 Vanity Fair Oscars Party, Ginnifer kept her look simple in a black leather Shoshanna dress.

Ginnifer infused some colour into her look by adding orange suede Giuseppe Zanotti platforms with a matching bangle.

The orange gives the look some personality and prevents it from feeling too goth-like.

Gold studded earrings provided the finishing touches.

Maria Sharapova In Oscar de la Renta – A Beautiful Rebels Press Dinner

Tag Heuer hosted ‘A Beautiful Rebels’ press dinner’ with tennis star Maria Sharapova in New York City on Saturday evening.

The blonde beauty wore an Oscar de la Renta Fall 2012 dress, seen just a few weeks ago during New York Fashion Week.

Her silver bead embroidered ivory silk faille dress with feather trim was paired with butterfly-accented Giuseppe Zannoti shoes and a Tag Heuer watch.

Maria seems to like dressing in prim, girlie looks lately.

Do you think this style works for her, or would you like to see her in work a different look?

Andrew Gn Fall 2012

For Fall 2012, Andrew Gn took us back to a romantic Victorian era “without frills and a darker edge”, as described in the show notes.

This collection was also full of mostly black looks with white, navy, emerald green, violet, deep prune and fuchsia shades.

The designer served up his signature razor-shar tailoring on brocade coats, mutton sleeves coats with fox epaulets, and cocoon jackets with bracelet sleeves.

We also saw beautiful silk georgette blouses with embroidered yokes, asymmetrical jersey dresses and fitted pants before a succession of gorgeous gowns.

My favourite was the striking emerald-green mousseline gown with lace and jet embroidery and the black-and-bronze silk-jacquard draped gown.

Front Row: Leigh Lezark

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Andrea Riseborough, Rooney Mara, January Jones, Michelle Monaghan, Emma Stone, Ginnifer Goodwin, Kirsten Dunst, Amy Adams, Elizabeth Banks and Kristen Stewart

Sophia Bush In Katharine Kidd – Cocktail Reception Honoring Richard O’Barry

‘The Cove’ star Richard O’Barry was honored at a cocktail reception in LA on Saturday.

Actress, and well-known activist, Sophia Bush supported the animal-rights documentary star, wearing a Katharine Kidd A-line tank dress.

The sweet dress was accessorized with a ruby Yves Saint Laurent satin mail clutch and black Christian Louboutin ‘Pigalle’ point-toe pumps.

Her accessories unfortunately weigh down this simple, pretty dress.

The clutch would get a pass, but the shoes wouldn’t.

Paris Fashion Week Trend: Jil Sander Spring 2012 Veiled Beanies

Hats are often an overlooked statement accessory, but that is not the case when it comes to Fashion Week street style.

The latest trend to hit the streets of Paris Fashion Week comes courtesy of Jil Sander Spring 2012: veiled beanies.

Four were spotted inside Nina Ricci’s Fall 2012 show last week.

The netted mesh gives an edgy twist to the classic winter staple, while still remaining wearable.

Unsurprisingly, Anna Dello Russo kicked the trend a while ago, but it came into full force at the Balmain Fall 2012 presentation last Thursday. The gothic veil added a perfect touch to the Vogue editor’s all-black ensemble.

Proving the look is not just for the girls; fashion blogger Bryan Boy paired the hat with a printed Givenchy top while attending the Christian Dior Fall 2012 show on Friday.

The bold accessory has even caught on with the model crowd.

Supermodel Hanne Gaby Odiele, who has walked in almost every major show this season, took a break between shows to enjoy some gelato.

The omnipresent paparazzi and style bloggers were eager to snap a pic of the model indulging her sweet tooth whilst looking uber stylish.

Would you jump on this trend?
