Rihanna In Christian Dior – Christian Dior Spring 2016 Front Row, Out In Paris & Vogue 95th Anniversary Party

Rihanna In Christian Dior - Christian Dior Spring 2016 Front Row, Out In Paris & Vogue 95th Anniversary Party

Rihanna had a busy time in Paris this weekend; fulfilling her Dior ambassadorial duties, shopping, sight-seeing and attending Vogue’s anniversary party.

Christian Dior Spring 2016 Front Row: I have to say I was blown away by Rihanna in this Dior Couture pale salmon neoprene coat – which is a surprised as I wasn’t too enamoured by it on the runway. Proving perhaps that Rihanna can sell Dior to me. Styled with Dior accessories, the look was so chic and fashion forward.

Dior Boutique: Making her way to the Dior boutique in Paris, the singer wore a head-to-toe Dior look which had me saying, “there is just too much going on”.

Gucci Spring 2016 Front Row

Gucci Spring 2016 Front Row

A group of Gucci-donning pretties were seated front row at the Gucci Spring 2016 show held during Milan Fashion Week on Wednesday (September 23) in Milan, Italy.

Dakota Johnson: This Gucci Fall 2015 frock, accented by a bow collar and bee brooches, saw the ‘Black Mass’ actress exploring the rich colourway of burgundy along with more ruffles and embellishment than we sometimes see from her sleekly simple statements. However, it only proved that this brand of feminine charm works for her just, as well.

Salma Hayek: Her Resort 2016 look likewise had a touch of darlingness with the embroidered sweater serving up a sweet retro sensibility balanced by iconic horsebit-belted skirt. I love the pop of the red leather Gucci GG ‘Marmont’ clutch that plays off the floral patchwork. The massive platform pumps were less successful.

Alexa Chung: While part of me wished to see the full detail of this Resort 2015 vintage-leaning dress and its embellished collar, the other part of me was just as happy about the chicly clean, modern edge that the black coat provided in pairing with the horsebit natural fur Gucci slippers.

Versus Versace Spring 2016

Catherine Kallon Versus Versace

Versace invited me to their Versus Versace Spring 2016 show on Saturday (September 19) in London during Fashion Week.

Now here’s something you thought you’d never see, me in all black; but it’s the Anthony Vaccarello X Versus Versace way.

Me wearing black has been like kryptonite to Superman, but I absolutely loved the look especially in motion.

This look had me thinking, perhaps I have written black off too harshly all these years.

My look was styled with Versace accessories including Versace sandals which pretty much sold the whole look to me, as I originally had my eye on an electric blue ensemble.

There were plenty of celebs who attended the show.

Gabrielle Union In Noam Hanoch, Self-Portrait & Rag & Bone – NYFWM Spring 2016 Front Row

Gabrielle Union In Noam Hanoch, Self-Portrait & Rag & Bone - NYFWM Spring 2016 Front Row

Gabrielle Union has become quite the Olivia Palermo of New York Fashion Week Men’s, as on Tuesday (July 14) the ‘Being Mary Jane’ actress sat front row at several shows alongside hubby Dwayne Wade.

Here are a handful of her looks.

EFM Engineered for Motion Show: No surprises that her black and nude Noam Hanoch jumpsuit is my favourite look. Not only for the sleek nature of the one-piece, but also for complementary styling which including Bionda Castana ‘Bay’ pumps and an Eddie Borgo ‘Boyd’ clutch.

Todd Snyder Show: Self-Portrait always delivers the perfect blend of classic and contemporary and that was most definitely the case with this embroidered-lace Pre-Fall 2015 dress, however, the partial lining is slightly throwing me off loving the look. The shoes score a perfect 10 however.

Rag & Bone Show: Even with the attempt to down play this look with the Rag & Bone bomber jacket, Gabrielle still oozes elegance wearing a navy Nili Lotan slip dress styled with Jimmy Choo grey sandals and a Clare V. clutch.

Which look was your favourite?

Valentino ‘Mirabilia Romae’ Fall 2015 Couture Front Row

Valentino 'Mirabilia Romae' Fall 2015 Couture Front Row

Valentino held their ‘Mirabilia Romae’ Fall 2015 Haute Couture show at Piazza Mignanelli on Thursday (July 9) in Rome, Italy.

This appeared to be a very fancy affair, as all the attendees were decked out in full-length gowns.

Gwyneth Paltrow: It’s great to see Gwyneth step outside that fitted-mini-dress box she’s so comfortable in, but this Valentino Fall 2015 shapeless sack of a dress doesn’t do it for me. The only thing I love is the colour, as she’s tends to stick to black or white.

Tilda Swinton: As you know I am a huge fan of Tilda’s style, yet I couldn’t get behind this Valentino Fall 2015 white gown. I don’t find it particularly flattering and I couldn’t get the image of a priests robe out of my mind.

Front Row @ Fall 2015 Couture Week

Front Row @ Fall 2015 Couture Week

Fashionable femmes have been in attendance at a range of shows during Paris Fall 2015 Couture Fashion Week in Paris, France.

Olivia Palermo: Included in her fashion show rounds, Olivia was at the Schiaparelli presentation on Monday (July 6), where she opted to wear a Christian Dior gingham frock. Styled with flats and a silk printed scarf, the ensemble did possess a certain charm. But the deep and wide plunge neckline did no favours to the otherwise sweet silhouette.

Paz Vega: While the sheer overload continues, I still absolutely loved Paz’s Ralph & Russo Couture outing at the Ralph & Russo Couture show on Tuesday (July 7). The combination of enchanting, laser-cut white lace and the glamorous, old-Hollywood peplum silhouette had me at hello—and the daring punch of the scorpion-encrusted clutch only furthered my affection for the look.

Lupita Nyong’o
: The actress was definitively elegant in a Maison Margiela sheer-paneled dress at the Maison Margiela Couture show on Wednesday (July 8). While the impeccable tailoring contributed to the success of the ensemble, it was refreshing to likewise see Lupita veer slightly outside the box with funky platform heels—although this would have been a nice occasion to bring in a vibrant lip, too.

Armani Privé Fall 2015 Front Row

Armani Privé Fall 2015 Couture Front Row

The Armani Prive Fall 2015 show took place on Tuesday (July 7) in Paris, France.

Naomi Watts: This white Giorgio Armani piece is a sheer delight with its delicate display of embroidered lace and straightforward design. I like how Naomi kept the styling simple with nude pumps. While I love this summery offering, what I’m most impressed about here is the amount of volume in Naomi’s hair.

Chrissy Tiegen: The handsome couple continue to do the rounds during fashion week. Chrissy is known for her love for Zuhair Murad gowns and John is known for his commitment to Gucci, so could this chic showing at Couture week see them switching to Armani? Unless Giorgio makes gowns for Chrissy that are plunging to the navel and slit to the thigh, I can’t see it, but I’m happy to be proved wrong.

Chanel Fall 2015 Couture Front Row

Chanel Fall 2015 Front Row

Kristen Stewart, Julianne Moore and Rita Ora were front and center at Karl Lagerfeld’s casino-themed Fall 2015 Chanel Couture show on Tuesday (July 7).

Kristen Stewart: As chic as her Chanel velvet suit is, the poor girl looked absolutely exhausted.

Julianne Moore: Invited to bring a touch of glamour to proceedings, the Oscar-winning actress wore an Oscar-worthy Chanel velvet green gown which was perhaps overcooked with that shooting-star necklace.

Rita Ora: What can I say other than poor Coco is spinning right now.
