Gucci Spring 2015 Front Row

Gucci Spring 2015 Front Row

The front row at the Gucci Spring 2015 show, hosted today (September 7) during Milan Fashion Week in Milan, Italy, included a pretty trio of Gucci-wearing girls.

Kate Moss: Fresh from her appearance at the Burberry Prorsum Spring 2015 presentation on Monday, the supermodel punctuated her look with statement snake print. She paired the Gucci Resort 2015 green python leather coat with a black jersey dress, black suede platform high heel sandals and a pale-blue leather Jackie soft clutch. With minimal accessories and little fluff, it’s a very ‘Kate’ look, especially topped off with barely-there makeup and natural wavy strands.

Araya A. Hargate: Also jetting from the London Burberry Prorsum show to Milan, Araya was dressed in a Gucci Fall 2014 rose techno-fabric, short-sleeve frock with a pair of blue-python, high-heel boots with horsebit detail. With her round, oversized shades, I did love the spirited, retro stance she channeled.

Charlotte Casiraghi: The Monaco royal and the face of Gucci Cosmetics, which made its runway debut today, was the picture of effortless elegance, looking incredibly chic in a Gucci Fall 2014 black leather-trimmed sleeveless cocktail dress, sophisticatedly styled with impeccable makeup, naturally, and that great red lip.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Here is a quick roundup of some guys taking to the red carpet recently.

Ryan Reynolds: Blake Lively’s hubby was looking very sharp at the Toronto Film Festival premiere of his latest movie ‘The Voices’ on Thursday (September 11), where he joined his Miu Miu clad co-star Anna Kendrick. The actor wore a steely navy-blue head-to-toe Brunello Cucinelli look, opting to go sans tie and buttoning down his shirt. Even as someone who is not a huge fan of beards, I have to say this look is very distinguished on him.

Benjamin McKenzie: The actor joined Jada Pinkett Smith on the red carpet for the ‘Gotham’ premiere last night (September 15) wearing a Dior Homme dark-grey suit styled with a spotted tie with Jimmy Choo shoes and a Mont Blanc watch and tie-bar pin.

Josh Hutcherson: Opting for a classic Dior Homme black wool two-button peak-lapel suit, white cotton shirt, black silk tie, and black leather derbies to the ‘Escobar: Paradise Lost’ Toronto Film Festival premiere, the blazer doesn’t appear to fit too well. Perhaps he should’ve left it unbuttoned.

Burberry Prorsum Spring 2015 Front Row

Burberry Womenswear SS15 - Arrivals

A crush of beauties, and a handsome boy, were out in force for the Burberry Prorsum Spring 2015 fashion presentation on Monday (September 15) during London Fashion Week in London, England. This front row set was, of course, outfitted in all measures of the powerhouse British label for the big show.

Cara Delevingne: The model was front and centre—on the FROW instead of the runway—where she strutted out a sexy two-piece navy suit with multicoloured Burberry Prorsum sneakers and a contrasting plum Burberry Prorsum ‘Bee’ monogrammed bag, both fresh from the Spring 2015 collection. The unexpected mix of the skin-baring, bra-less plunge, worn with strands of necklaces, and the sporty appeal of the trainers delivers on Cara’s rebel edge. I can’t say that a part of me didn’t want to see the suit with a pair of heels, though. The matching red lip and red pocket square were amazing.

Kate Moss: Arm in arm with Cara, Kate belted on a sleek black trench over cropped black skinny pants, punctuating the look with teal-green heels, the Burberry Prorsum ‘Bloomsbury’ bag and cat-eye shades. This dynamic duo appear together in the current My Burberry fragrance campaign—talk about a perfect model match.

Fan Bingbing In Valentino – Valentino Beijng Yintai Store Opening

Valentino Opens New Store At Beijing Yintai Centre

Fan Bingbing was on hand to lend some glamour to the opening of the new Valentino store in Beijng Yintai in China on Friday (September 12).

With plenty of Bingbing-esque Valentino princess gowns at her disposal, the actress opted for something a bit more modern.

Fringe detail can be hit or miss, but I’m totally enamoured by her luxe leather double-breasted Resort 2015 coat which sees a classic style and silhouette turned into something fresh and new for the actress.

Sweeping her raven locks to one side in a braided ponytail, she completed her look with a deep red lip.

With so much going on north of her ankles, you can’t begrudge the platform heels on this occasion, which are modest by her standards.

Jennifer Connelly In Louis Vuitton – ‘Shelter’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Jennifer Connelly In Louis Vuitton - 'Shelter' Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Jennifer Connelly, much like fellow Louis Vuitton devotee Charlotte Gainsbourg, kept up her commitment to the French brand during the Toronto Film Festival while promoting her new movie, ‘Shelter’, on Friday (September 12), opting for two LBDs.

Photocall: The first was a photocall-appropriate Louis Vuitton textured top and corduroy skirt with a flounced hem. While I can see the chic-appeal this look is, I’m still feeling totally underwhelmed, much to my disappointment – I don’t believe I have ever put the words ‘Connelly’ and ‘underwhelmed’ in the same sentence.

Premiere: Shifting several gears, she went for sexy gothic glamour for the premiere, wearing another head-to-toe LV look. The intricate laser-cut lace overlay sets this apart from an average LBD, with white accessories elevating the look.

I wish these looks didn’t feel so similar, especially considering all that is available to her from this brand.
