Louis Vuitton Spring 2015 Front Row

Louis Vuitton presented their Spring 2015 collection during Paris Fashion Week on Wednesday (October 1) to a mix of LV devotees and some new fans they have picked up along the way.

Jennifer Connelly: I was going to call Jennifer Connelly Nicolas Ghesquière’s biggest fan, but Charlotte Gainsbourg would dispute that. The actress selected an LV Resort 2015 black suit with red seams which on most I don’t think I would buy, mostly due to the leather neckline, but Jennifer sells the look to me with her confident pose and the elegance which oozes from every pore.

Charlotte Gainsbourg: The French beauty always nails it, this time working a Resort 2015 biker chic look which as always looks effortless. Even though I really dislike those front-zipper trousers, like Jennifer, Charlotte managed to sell this look to me in its entirety.

Michelle Williams: While Jennifer and Charlotte wear LV religiously, Michelle, who is the face of Louis Vuitton’s desirable bags for a third season, often wears the brand, selecting the easier pieces for her red carpet look. I found myself loving this sportier look from Michelle. The look feels fresh and effortless without compromising her style or the brand’s ethos.

Miu Miu Spring 2015 Front Row

Miu Miu Spring 2015 Front Row

Miuccia Prada presented her Miu Miu Spring 2015 collection during Paris Fashion Week on Wednesday (October 1) to a host of gorgeous starlets perched in the front row.

Shailene Woodley: Easily my favourite of the pack, the ‘Divergent’ star looked divine wearing a Miu Miu nude and blush colour-blocked deep V-neck dress accented by contrasting crochet seams, complemented with a gorgeous pair of lilac patent-leather pumps. Miu Miu often churn out sugary dresses, so I’m delighted to see Shailene in this more grown-up option – and did I mention how much I am in love with those shoes?

Léa Seydoux: The French beauty, who is officially/unofficially the face of Prada and Miu Miu, was of course front and centre at this show, wearing an alluring Miu Miu black crêpe and chiffon long-sleeved dress with a lace-panelled bodice. That lip is everything. I love the old Hollywood vibe she’s giving off here.

Hailee Steinfeld: The actress was the perfect embodiment of the Miu Miu brand, looking extra cute wearing a blush-pink Miu Miu dress featuring a contrast white trim and dainty jewelled collar. I can’t get enough of the pearl and crystal bow headband and the python Miu Miu clutch for an interesting contrast. Pink satin platform sandals finished her adorable look.

Valentino Spring 2015 Front Row

Valentino Spring 2015 Front Row

Valentino’s Spring 2015 collection was presented during Paris Fashion Week on Tuesday (September 30) in Paris, France.

Clotilde Courau: The French beauty was a glorious vision of loveliness wearing a red Valentino Resort 2015 sleeveless ladylike dress given an edge with a leather laser-cut studded collar. I also love the contrasting blue-grey pumps she’s working here.

Olivia Palermo: Working a chic, sharp coat and shorts combo in a vivid green hue, the socialite once again opted for her python dual-colour clutch, adding a pair of Aquazzura ‘Sexy Thing’ booties to her look. You can always rely on Olivia to present a chic look with an interesting twist.

Ciara: *Sighs* Methinks this look would’ve worked better with the coat buttoned and belted.

Chanel Spring 2015 Front Row

Karl Lagerfeld presented Chanel’s Spring 2015 collection during Paris Fashion Week on Tuesday (September 30) yesterday morning.

Elisa Sednaoui: The model brought some colour to the front row wearing a Chanel Resort 2015 ensemble with a distinct laidback vibe, which, as expected, she makes look chic and effortless.

Alexa Chung: As you know, Alexa has been impressing me of late with her red carpet choices, and I expected the same from this event; sadly, I was totally underwhelmed. It’s almost like no effort was put into this at all. The whole look is too boxy and not to my liking. She can do better, especially at Chanel.

Poppy Delevingne: The model/socialite also went down the easy breezy route, selecting a Chanel Resort 2015 red and white romper styled with gold sandals and a red Chanel bag. The look is effortless and chic and, most importantly, looks modern and elegant. She’s a great Chanel ambassador.

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 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.
