Front Row @ Miu Miu Cruise 2018 Show

The front row at the Miu Miu Cruise 2018 show, held during Haute Couture Paris Fashion Week on Sunday (July 2), was chock-full of Miu Miu-donning darlings—each embracing the quirky charm of the label in their own unique way.

Elle Fanning: Looking every bit like a modern-day Miu Miu princess, Elle masterfully wore a precious look from the Fall 2017 collection that got its sweet edge from the explosion of oversized paillettes and magpie-worthy embellishment. What better, then, than a pearl-encrusted headband—a modern girl’s tiara, of course—to top off her ballerina bun.

Alexa Chung: With a more traditional edgy offering in play, Alexa wore another interpretation of scintillating sequins in this silvery-gray frock topped off with a studded, leather moto jacket. Of course, it was the embellished buckle footwear in schoolgirl plaid that really put the look into the realm of signature Miu Miu quirk.

Teresa Palmer: While there would be no sparkling embellishment to speak of in Teresa’s look, the whimsical cherry print more than made up for it in this vintage-inspired, ruffle frock. The styling lent itself even more to the eccentric Miu Miu twist with costume-y bauble earrings, a seemingly out-of-place blue purse, and glittery platform heels each playing unusual companions whilst elevating the dress’s twee spirit.

Tommy Dorfman FROW at Spring 2018 Menswear Fashion Week

Tommy Dorfman has been a noticeable fixture on the front row at Spring 2018 Menswear Fashion Week in Milan and Paris, attending a trio of shows where the young actor looked as if he could have stepped straight from the runway himself.

Fendi show: At Fendi, he paid homage to the brand with a schoolboy-meets-sporty edge. Successfully wearing this mauve zipper sweater, emblazoned with racing stripes, alongside army-green pinstripe trousers was no small feat. But, he does so incredibly seamlessly. I love the additional quirk of the ‘Green’ knapsack, with athletic shoes rounding out the look.

Cerruti show: Letting his shirt do the talking at Cerruti on Friday (June 23), this tee-and-shorts number got a style-forward upgrade with the statement printed backpack and flatform footwear that made menswear sandals seem quite alright—good, even.

Balmain show: Adding knee-high socks to a pair of quilted, buckle sandals, Tommy continued to push the directional envelope at Balmain the next day, Saturday (June 24). Of course, it was his hyper-embellished, studded and mesh tunic dress that commanded much of the attention. Yet, he wore it with a spirit of easy nonchalance.

Gabrielle Union takes Menswear Spring 2018 Paris Fashion Week by storm

Gabrielle Union has taken the Menswear Spring 2018 edition of Paris Fashion Week by style storm, as she’s had more outfit changes than some models with a record seven looks and counting. Equally impressive, Dwayne Wade has been a style-forward partner-in-crime almost every step of the way.

Valentino Show: At the Valentino show on Wednesday (June 21), Gabrielle started off the whirlwind week with a relaxed note in a breezy, flowing Valentino Pre-Fall 2017 floral gown. Sure, it was a glorified maxi dress, but I was so pleased to see it without the runway’s sweater top. Plus, it translated beautifully on her. Dwayne Wade stood close by with his best, trend-forward attitude in place. He suited up in a Valentino plaid ensemble that was embroidered and chain-accented for additional edge. It was likely no accident that the three-piece suit’s plum-and-mint colour palette referenced Gabrielle’s dress.

Dior Homme Spring 2018 Show


Dior-clad fellas (and one femme!) collected together at the Dior Homme Spring 2018 show held during Paris Fashion Week on Saturday (June 24).

Jamie Bell: Handsomely dressed in a Dior Homme navy suit, Jamie let the streamlined nature of his ensemble do the talking with black Dior derbies to complete the dashing yet simple look.

Kate Mara: Maintaining a similarly uncomplicated edge, Kate donned a Dior little white dress that put up plenty of sweet simplicity in its fit-and-flare silhouette. Dior black ‘J’Adior’ slingbacks, Dior ‘Tribale’ earrings, and a Dior ‘I Feel Blue’ printed and embroidered clutch only enhanced its charm.

Rami Malek: The white and orange stitching provided just the right bit of quirky edge for this Dior Homme black suit, sportily accessorised with black Dior sneakers and ‘Dior Tailoring’ sunglasses. It fit Rami’s style personality perfectly.
