Sonam Kapoor Closes Ralph & Russo Couture

With a sweeping grand finale, Sonam Kapoor made her couture week debut by closing the Ralph & Russo Fall 2017 Couture show in Paris on Monday (July 3) with an exhilarating exit that will not soon be forgotten.

Show-stopping in magnitude, this lace bridal-inspired confection from the design house featured a head-spinning array of Swarovski crystal embellishment throughout followed by an elaborate peplum train to ensure the look carried as much dazzling drama from the back as from the front.

This would be no time for moderation, as matching jewelry and an embroidered, sheer lace veil delivered even more glittering extravagance for a head-to-toe bejewelled look that couldn’t have been more exquisitely worn than by this Bollywood beauty.

Front Row @ Valentino Fall 2017 Couture

Valentino closed Fall 2017 Couture Week in Paris on Wednesday (July 6), with the balmy evening leading attendees to opt for flowy gowns.

Laetitia Casta: Following her Vogue Paris Foundation dinner unimpressive look, the model turned things around in this feminine Valentino Fall 2017 halter number.

Brie Larson: Taking in her second show of the week, Brie’s Valentino Resort 2018 gown felt very similar to her first in that it makes a dark, whimsy statement; this time without any heavy jewels.

Sofia Coppola: The directors red carpet M.O. has always comfort and easy wearability; two things this simple green Valentino Resort 2018 dress possesses. I like how her accessories, mostly the necklace, prevents look this from feeling too causal for the event.

Front Row @ Elie Saab Fall 2017 Couture

The Elie Saab Fall 2017 Couture show was held on Wednesday (July 5) during Paris Fashion Week. Here, a glance at a few of the looks on the front row.

Nieves Alvarez: You may anticipate glittering embellishment and wispy chiffon with an Elie Saab look, but Nieves turned that notion on its head in this Elie Saab Spring 2017 jumpsuit styled with Giuseppe Zanotti sandals and a Bvlgari bag and jewels. Naturally, Nieves rocked this star power jumpsuit, and I love how sleekly fitted it was—not to mention its retro yet relevant influence in that flared leg.

Olivia Palermo: While Olivia did introduce some embellishment to her look, she moderated the effect of her bedazzled and feathered coat by contradictorily pairing it with ripped, cropped denim. The fringed, decorative mules tied the look together by echoing the statement jacket.

Clotilde Courau: With a more traditionally pretty Elie Saab look, Clotilde wore one of the designer’s gowns with this sheer number that was whimsically enlivened with luminescent, embroidered hearts throughout.

Front Row @ Armani Prive Fall 2017

A trio of lovelies turned out for the Armani Prive Fall 2017 show as part of Haute Couture Paris Fashion Week on Tuesday (July 4), each representing a monochromatic Armani look.

Naomi Watts: While I loved the crisp structure of Naomi’s blazer, it lost some of its appeal against the exploded-floral-embroidered dress. The flared length of the frock felt awkward, but it was perhaps the nude shoe colour that was the most distracting miss.

Kate Winslet: The sparkling embellishment at the shoulder and waist of this LBD is what sold it to me—that, and how effortlessly Kate wore it. A sandal would have been preferred, though, to her Rupert Sanderson pumps.

Priyanka Chopra: Methinks the high-low hemline of this white frock ventured a bit too high. Nor did the diamond earrings mixed with the dress’s sportier drawstring detailing and black, lace-up shoes really come together.

What do you make of these three looks?

Front Row @ Chanel Fall 2017 Couture

The front row of the Chanel Haute Couture Fall 2017 show at the Grand Palais on Tuesday (July 4) was especially star-studded this Paris Fashion Week season with so many stylish notables in attendance—and dressed in their Chanel best, naturally.

Kristen Stewart: I never imagined a cropped, sequin jumpsuit could look so relevant. But, I credit its seamless appeal to the minimal styling surrounding as Kristen makes it work with her sheer lack of accessories save for her classic black pumps and, of course, that edgy platinum buzz cut.

Pom Klementieff: The quintessential cool girl, Pom never ceases to impress with her inspired, impossibly chic style. My obsession continues with this look that provided an unexpected twist on classic Chanel tweed with this reverse jacket—with lapels cut low in the back—paired with black, cutoff denim and metallic heels. From the classic buttons, to the rebellious fray of the pant hem, to the singular sunny spark radiating from the quilted handbag, it’s the details here that make all the difference.

Cara Delevingne: Rounding out this trio of icy blondes, Cara also was on top form in her particular brand of edginess that actually didn’t involve a leggy mini this time out. Still, those slouchy, metallic trousers made her pins look a mile long. She rounded out her style warrior look with a Chanel choker and arm cuff along with a flirty, hot pink eye shadow that put plenty of pretty spunk into the look.
