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.

Louis Vuitton Fall 2017 Front Row

The ladies of the Louis Vuitton Fall 2017 front row made from an impressive—and impressively cohesive—showing at the Paris Fashion Week show on Tuesday (March 7), with all donning surprisingly well-coordinated looks from the house of LV.

Michelle Williams: A power LBD if there ever was one, this look proved that there’s nothing monotonous about the sultry-sweet lines of a black leather dress edged up further by a sharp pair of booties.

Sophie Turner: Commanding a chic, warrior-princess mood, the ‘Game of Thrones’ actress was also the ultimate fashion girl in this forward look. On paper, the furry vest, gathered leather skirt, and futuristic white boots would be strange bedfellows, but it works beautifully on Sophie.

Jennifer Connelly: The actress’s LV looks can be hit and miss. But she was at the top of her game with the sleek lines of this black dress accessorised by those striking white boots and graphic clutch.

Miu Miu Fall 2017 Front Row

The Miu Miu Fall 2017 show at Paris Fashion Week was presented on Tuesday (March 7), and it wasn’t without a group of PYTs all showing their support of designer Miuccia Prada with their girly Miu Miu looks.

Zoey Deutch: The quirk and charm of the label was well presented in this citron fur-cuffed coat accessorised with an equally furry sky-blue handbag and embellished heels. It had lighthearted sass and sophistication all wrapped into one.

Aja Naomi King: With a more classically ladylike approach, Aja wore a twist on tweed in her patterned overcoat paired with a simple blouse and skirt in shades of pink.

Jenna Coleman: I love the enlivening blue hue of this coat, which is like a breath of fresh air, with a touch of retro femininity in the floral-accented frock. The platform shoes were, of course, the mandatory bit of funky fun for the look.

Chanel Fall 2017 Front Row

Always a haute ticket, the Chanel Fall 2017 presentation on Tuesday (March 7) during Paris Fashion Week brought with it a set of unique Chanel style statements in the range of front-row looks that were spotted.

Rita Ora
: Going for a relaxed edginess, Rita wore a more laid-back statement in her metallic, floral-print blouse and slouchy leather-accented pants with the pop of her spring-green bag bringing an unexpected burst of colour to the darker look.

Lily Allen: Sculptural and chic, Lily played with proportion in her cape-sleeve coat styled with plush velvet pants for added texture. Her sunglasses, gigantic hoop earrings, and embellished handbag ensured there was a spirited personality to the serious side of the look.

Cara Delevingne: There was no risk for lack of attitude in the model’s ensemble, which saw her breathe a unique boldness into the prim sweater by pairing it with low-slung trousers and Supreme boxers. A Chanel choker and retro round shades completed her style-rebel ensemble.
