Christian Dior Spring 2015 Front Row

Christian Dior Spring 2015 Front Row

The Christian Dior front row is one I always look forward to during fashion week; however, on this occasion I was somewhat underwhelmed by the looks the ladies were displaying this afternoon (September 26) in Paris, France.

Marion Cotillard: The French actress and Dior ambassador kept her look uber-simple wearing a chic LBD with cobalt-blue velvet ankle boots. I don’t by any means dislike the look, but as always I want just a little bit more from Marion.

Olivia Palermo: The only person who piqued my interest was Olivia. If anyone can spark some life into an LBD it’s her. Her double-breasted coat dress with sheer sleeves was accented with a Dior Resort 2014 scarf, dual-colour Dior bag and a her favourite Jimmy Choo ‘Dream’ tassel-accented sandals.

Dakota Fanning: Wearing a black Dior Couture dress, the black accessories I don’t mind, but I couldn’t help but wish for a pop of colour to the lips or a new hairdo (as always) from Dakota.

Lanvin Spring 2015 Front Row

Lanvin Front Row Spring 2015

Noomi Rapace and Kim Kardashian, who earlier in the day had taken their front row seats at Balmain, also attended the Lanvin Spring 2015 show alongside Ciara on Thursday (September 25) in Paris, France during Fashion Week.

Noomi Rapace: Upon looking at this Lanvin Pre-Fall 2014 striped suit paired with a fur stole, I’ve just realized it’s not the clothes that I object to; rather, it’s the unfortunate hair and makeup Noomi is working during fashion week.

Kim Kardashian: The reality star didn’t need to do much to ensure all eyes were on her, but just in case she opted to attend the show with at least two-thirds of her breast hanging out. While she is wearing a top under the blazer, the look leaves little to the imagination.

Ciara: I was hoping that Ciara could save this front row but I’m a fan of neither the oversized leather Lanvin Fall 2014 coat nor the makeup. I hope she finds her way back to glory soon. I haven’t really liked anything she’s worn since she made her return to the red carpet.

Balmain Spring 2015 Front Row

Balmain Spring 2015 Front Row

Olivier Rousteing presented his Spring 2015 collection for Balmain yesterday (September 25), sending some of our favourite models down the runway including Jourdan Dunn, Joan Smalls, Karlie Kloss and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Here’s a look at who saw the show first hand in the front row.

Noomi Rapace: Hmm… I’m starting to think that Noomi has lost her mojo. Usually styled to perfection, this zebra-print blazer and striped sequin dress effort doesn’t impress me much as the styling is so uninspired. You can tell she just threw it on.

Kim Kardashian: Seated in the front row alongside her mother and husband, Kanye West, to see her kid sister Kendal Jenner take the runway, the reality star made a better representation of a Balmain girl. Dressed in a Balmain Resort 2015 patterned frock, the piece was styled with Balmain lace-up booties and accessorized with a choker and cuffs from the Spring 2015 collection. Love her or hate her, she looked much better than Noomi Rapace.

Versace Spring 2015 Front Row

Versace presented their Spring 2015 collection during Milan Fashion Week on Thursday (September 18) with a front row that of course included their biggest celebrity fan, aside from JLO – Heidi Klum.

Heidi Klum: Versace-fied from head to toe, the TV host was decked out in a black mini dress, which she paired with a studded leather jacket with laser-cut detailing on the sleeves, a gold medusa ring and black and gold suede Versace boots from the Fall 2014 collection. I have to say, this is one of her better Versace looks. I like that she found the right balance without looking like she tried too hard.

Bella Thorne: The young Disney star has become a FROW regular during Milan Fashion Week. Like Heidi, she also selected a fairly simple Versace Fall 2014 dress, letting the accessories amp up the look. The only thing I would remove here is the heavy eye makeup.

Araya A. Hargate: The Thai actress and L’Oreal ambassador opted to go in a different direction to the mini dress and leather jacket route selected by the other two, by wearing a gorgeous teal pantsuit with rose-gold button detailing from the Fall 2014 collection. The chic military-inspired look was styled with glossy waves and Versace shoes.

Emporio Armani Spring 2015 Front Row

Emporio Armani Spring 2015 Front Row

Ashley Madekwe and Bella Thorne were perched in the front row of the Emporio Armani Spring 2015 show during Milan Fashion Week yesterday afternoon (September 18).

Ashley Madekwe: Embodying the elegance of the brand to a tee, the actress wore a white Emporio Armani sleeveless blazer with slim-fit trousers. Styled in a timeless, chic manner with black and white accessories, I can’t help but be captivated by the enigmatic and androgynous cool appeal of this look.

Bella Thorne: The actress also went the black and white route while opting for separates with an all-round looser fit. This I found surprising, and refreshing, considering that her style often consists of tight-fitted mini dresses. However, the only thing I would change about this look is the shoes. There is something quite clownish about them.
