Front Row @ Chanel Spring 2012 Couture

Chanel’s Spring 2012 Couture show which was held in Paris on Tuesday afternoon, brought out some of Hollywood’s most fashionable stars.

It was quite the monochromatic front row as the attendees showed off classic Chanel black-and-white chic.

Cameron Diaz: The actress played up her new mod ‘do in a long black Chanel Pre-Fall 2011 coat with metal petticoat button details. Her flawless body was wrapped in a form-fitting white Chanel Resort 2012 dress, paired with pointed black heels.

Diane Kruger: The German actress wore an unmistakably Chanel Pre-Fall 2012 coat-like dress in a black print, offset by a heavy white trim and embellished buttons. The prim dress was paired with over-the-knee boots.

Elizabeth Olsen: The Chanel front row newbie was the only one who dared to stray from the iconic black-and-white palette, wearing a navy double-breasted pea coat. The coat was worn over what appeared to be suede leggings and matching boots. Read More…

Celebs Front Row @ Armani Privé Spring 2012

Whilst waiting for the Armani Prive Spring 2012 show to start, people around Jessica Chastain started clapping. It wasn’t a slow ‘When are you going to start the show?’ clap, but a congratulatory round of applause.

It later turns out that the Oscar-nominated actress had just received the good news prior to the show.

So the question ‘Who are you wearing?’ has just been made redundant as the actress must surely wear Armani on Oscar night.

I couldn’t be happier considering the actress is a redhead and this Armani Prive S12 collection was made up of mostly green pieces. Perfect combination. No?

At the show she kept her look simple and elegant in true Armani style wearing a black long-sleeve dress with an orange beaded neckline.

You could’ve knocked me down with a feather as the actress was also carrying a clutch.

Cameron Diaz and Jessica were very playful in the front row. Livia Giuggioli was taking pictures of the actresses on their mobile phones. Jessica obviously wanted a picture to commemorate the joyous occasion of being an Oscar-nominated actress.

Cameron looked the best she has all week. Her shorter blonde locks, which many of you have been struggling to like, were finally under control. She also kept her look simple wearing black pants and a black sheer top under an ecru wool coat.

The actress has attended nearly every show this week. She is in town to shoot a Couture shoot with InStyle US.

She turned to Roberta Armani when the look below took to the runway and said, “OMG, that is so beautiful.”

Oscar dress or option for her InStyle Couture shoot?

We will have to wait and see.

Celebrities @ The Atelier Versace Spring 2012 Presentation

At the Atelier Versace Spring 2012 presentation in Paris this morning there may not have been a front row as such because we all stood for the presentation, but many stars gathered to celebrate the first Atelier Versace presentation since 2004.

Diane Kruger had jetted in especially from Las Vegas for the show. She wore a black-and-white Versace Resort 2012 palm print dress which is much improved from her previous look.

PVC-accented heels from the Versus Spring 2012 collection, plus a white belt and a wavy updo completed her look.

You can buy her Versace dress from Net-A-Porter.com. Read More…

Salma Hayek In Alexander McQueen – Alexander McQueen Spring 2012 Presentation

Salma Hayek attended the Alexander McQueen Spring 2012 presentation with her husband, Francois-Henri Pinault during Paris Fashion Week.

Carine Roitfeld holds the record for the fastest time to wear a Spring 2012 runway look, but Salma shares the title as she wore a very pretty coral Alexander McQueen Spring 2012 dress with a black belt whilst sitting in the front row.

I saw her commercial dress (which also comes in black) at the Alexander McQueen re-see in Paris yesterday.

She carried an Alexander McQueen Spring 2012 black ‘Sedna’ clutch with gold hardware.

This clutch is really special as it opens up to reveal the trademark gold skull clasps.

Princess Beatrice In Elie Saab – Elie Saab Spring 2012 Presentation

Princess Beatrice attended the Elie Saab Spring 2012 show in Paris yesterday – the only show she attended this fashion week.

When I arrived at the show I was told, “Princess is here”, to which I responded, “Fan Bingbing?”.

The person laughed and said, “No, the Princess, Princess Beatrice”.

As you know, I have a very soft spot for Princess B, so I was delighted to see her in the front row at the show wearing a red Elie Saab Resort 2012 dress.

She teamed her dress with black pumps (grrr) and a gold clutch.

Beatrice has worn Elie Saab several times for public and private events, so it’s no wonder she wanted to see the collection up close for herself.

I wonder which looks she will wear in the future.

Here are my picks.

Leighton Meester In Christian Dior – Christian Dior Spring 2012 Presentation

Leighton Meester was spotted making her way to the Christian Dior Spring 2012 presentation in Paris this afternoon.

The ‘Gossip Girl’ star looked adorable wearing a white Christian Dior dress.

Her pretty off-the-shoulder dress had a lightly ruffled top with a tiered skirt.

Whilst I’m not crazy about her black Louis Vuitton pumps with triple white bows, they do work well with the black and white theme plus they stop the overall look from being too sickly sweet.

Dior fine jewelry and a Dior ‘Promenade’ bag provided the finishing touches along with pretty pink lips and gorgeous waves.
