Donna Karan Fall 2014 Front Row

Donna Karan Fall 2014 Front Row

Donna Karan, celebrating 30 years in the industry, had a star-studded front row at its New York Fashion Week show, including Rita Ora and Katie Holmes.

Kate Holmes: The actress wore a sexy Donna Karan look, donning a black halter-neck-style leather top nipped in at the waist, and a long pleated on-trend sheer skirt for the evening show. Tousled waves and soft makeup in nude hues rounded out her look. For me, it’s been a very long while since she looked this good.

Rita Ora: The British singer, and star of DKNY’s current ad campaign, took her brand of sexy down a very obvious route, wearing a Donna Karan black sheer-sleeved dress with a plunging neckline and gathered waist. Of course, the red lip was present, with black smoky eyes and sleek tresses. A selection of gold chains to complement her sandals accessorized her look.

Monique Lhuillier Fall 2014 Front Row

The front row at Monique Lhuillier’s Fall 2014 show presented during New York Fashion Week on Thursday (February 8) was packed with stars who we are very likely to see wearing the runway looks in the very near future.

Emmy Rossum: Known to wear her fair share of Monique Lhuillier dresses, the ‘Shameless’ actress was front and centre wearing a white lace blouse, bandeau and pencil skirt from the designer’s Spring 2014 collection. The ladylike look was styled with a chic updo, with a red glossy lip and metallic-gold Rupert Sanderson ‘Elbaa’ pumps adding a punch to the look.

Anna Kendrick: The girl who loves a girlie-girl frock was glowing in the front row wearing a gold belted jacquard mini dress with a flared skirt from the Spring 2013 collection, which she styled with ankle-strap gold sandals from Monique Lhuillier’s Fall 2013 collection. Blown-out waves and neutral makeup rounded out this golden look.

David Beckham In Ralph Lauren - Front Row @ Victoria Beckham Fall 2014

The whole of the Beckham family was front row at Victoria Beckham’s Fall 2014 presentation during New York Fashion Week on Sunday (February 9).

Looking smart and all very well behaved, this was the first runway show for Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz, with little Harper taking her front row seat for the second time.

Bursting with pride, David looked very handsome wearing a full Ralph Lauren look consisting of a Black Label navy blazer and Purple Label grey trousers, styled with a white Purple Label shirt, a yellow silk tie and a pocket square.

Whether he’s wearing Burberry Tailoring, Tom Ford, Belstaff or Ralph Lauren, the result is always the same: dapper and impeccably sharp.

Elie Saab Spring 2014 Couture Front Row

Elie Saab Spring 2014 Couture Front Row

There was as much beauty in the front row as there was on the runway on Wednesday afternoon for the Elie Saab Spring 2014 Couture show held in Paris during Couture week.

Paz Vega: The Spanish actress, who has been spending a lot of time stateside, wore a very ladylike Elie Saab frock with lace inserts and a chic peplum waist. Styled with a complementary Elie Saab clutch, she gave her look a fall-like touch by adding burgundy pumps to her look.

Olga Kurylenko: Fellow red carpet regular Olga was also in the front row, opting for a flirtier look, donning a green lace-accented frock styled with matching Elie Saab sandals and the same gold Elie Saab clutch that I also own. A simple ponytail and a watermelon-pink lip colour completed her look.

Which pieces from Elie Saab’s Spring 2014 Couture collection would you like to see on these lovely ladies?

Florence Welch In Valentino – Valentino Spring 2014 Couture Front Row

Florence Welch In Valentino - Valentino Spring 2014 Couture Front RowFlorence Welch was seated front and centre at the Valentino Spring 2014 Couture fashion show in Paris, France on Wednesday (January 22).

Looking like she planned her ensemble to perfectly match her surroundings, the songstress was well-coordinated to the flora and fauna backdrop in a Valentino Pre-Fall 2014 forest-green overcoat, aflutter with colourful butterflies.

She wore the quirky-beautiful coat over matching green separates, further highlighting the beauty of this hue against her flame-red locks.

With styling that stayed remarkably true to the lookbook, she rocked the same rust-brown ankle boots, alongside the complementary, butterfly-printed handbag.

Her nature look may have been the inspiration for her au naturel makeup, as she followed a barely-there approach to finish this statement-making entrance.

Armani Prive Spring 2014 Front Row

Armani Prive Spring 2014 Front Row

Celebs gathered to view the Giorgio Armani Prive Spring 2014 show as part of Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week on Tuesday (January 21) in Paris, France.

Paloma Faith: Always a delight to behold, Paloma of course opted for something uber glamorous, wearing a black pleated-fan-bodice Giorgio Armani Fall 2013 gown with a velvet skirt for her grand arrival. You may be thinking a gown is a bit OTT for a fashion show, but the show was at 8.30pm and was to be followed by a dinner – and this is Paloma Faith we are talking about, who never does things by halves.

Zhang Ziyi: The Asian actress was considerably more demure, wearing a magenta Giorgio Armani Spring 2014 embellished fitted jacket with black fitted pants, which she styled with black pumps and a black-and-white clutch. This look says everything about Armani: classic, timeless and oh so very elegant.

Kristin Scott Thomas: The English-French actress had the same idea as Zhang Ziyi, but sadly I wasn’t as enthused by Kristin’s execution. I much prefer the runway styling of this look, being orange, black and black rather than Kristin’s orange, orange, black and blue. Swap the orange silk blouse for a black one and lose the navy clutch and I would be more inclined to like this look.

Chanel Spring 2014 Couture Front Row

Chanel Spring 2014 Couture Front Row

The Chanel Spring 2014 Couture show took place during Paris Fashion Week today in France. The front row attendees were treated to a show which looked like the designer had sought inspiration from his Spring 2009 Couture collection.

Tilda Swinton: The only person who really caught my eye in the front row was Tilda. The face of Chanel’s Pre-Fall 2013 collection opted for a Chanel Pre-Fall 2014 look, wearing a cashmere star-print sweater with a colourful fringed knit skirt, styled with an American flag scarf, knit tights and two-tone Chanel pumps. Coming from Scotland, she knows a thing or two about dressing for the current season.

Lily Allen: The Brit singer was also perched in the front row, opting for simple staples, jazzing up her look with a red-white-and-blue tweed coat, a colourful headpiece and a Chanel quilted shoulder bag. Adding yet more colour to her look, she opted for smoked blue eye makeup. Between Lupita Nyong’o, Keira Knightley and now Lily, I’m thinking I need to step up my eye-makeup game this season.

Olga Kurylenko: The actress went from temptress at Dior to quite pedestrian at Chanel. If it weren’t for the glossy red lips and those studded cuffs, I wouldn’t have even noticed this look.
