Front Row @ Armani Prive Fall 2017

A trio of lovelies turned out for the Armani Prive Fall 2017 show as part of Haute Couture Paris Fashion Week on Tuesday (July 4), each representing a monochromatic Armani look.

Naomi Watts: While I loved the crisp structure of Naomi’s blazer, it lost some of its appeal against the exploded-floral-embroidered dress. The flared length of the frock felt awkward, but it was perhaps the nude shoe colour that was the most distracting miss.

Kate Winslet: The sparkling embellishment at the shoulder and waist of this LBD is what sold it to me—that, and how effortlessly Kate wore it. A sandal would have been preferred, though, to her Rupert Sanderson pumps.

Priyanka Chopra: Methinks the high-low hemline of this white frock ventured a bit too high. Nor did the diamond earrings mixed with the dress’s sportier drawstring detailing and black, lace-up shoes really come together.

What do you make of these three looks?

amfAR Paris Dinner 2017

The amfAR Paris Dinner was hosted at the Grand Palais on Sunday (July 2), and it certainly served up an eclectic array of looks.

Cindy Bruna: Statuesque and striking, the French model was a study in sleek simplicity in a Dsquared2 gown that looked to sharp tailoring and a mode of Le Smoking sensibility for inspiration. I love how the belted waist fully celebrated the structured sophistication with de Grisogono jewels adding a touch of sparkle.

Noemie Lenoir: Alternatively, there was no place for minimalism in this French model-actress’s Jean-Paul Gaultier Fall 2016 Couture ensemble. I was delighted to see this look stripped down from its original runway presentation, as the glittery sequin split tunic top and foliage-embossed pants were plenty decorative enough.

Sarah Snyder: Creating her own sexy, mod superheroine vibe out of this Fendi Pre-Fall 2017 high-low dress, Sarah styled the frock with what can only be called fierce Fendi over-the-knee boots that did reflect the red textural fabric on the underside of the skirt. Or, should we call it a cape.

Front Row @ Chanel Fall 2017 Couture

The front row of the Chanel Haute Couture Fall 2017 show at the Grand Palais on Tuesday (July 4) was especially star-studded this Paris Fashion Week season with so many stylish notables in attendance—and dressed in their Chanel best, naturally.

Kristen Stewart: I never imagined a cropped, sequin jumpsuit could look so relevant. But, I credit its seamless appeal to the minimal styling surrounding as Kristen makes it work with her sheer lack of accessories save for her classic black pumps and, of course, that edgy platinum buzz cut.

Pom Klementieff: The quintessential cool girl, Pom never ceases to impress with her inspired, impossibly chic style. My obsession continues with this look that provided an unexpected twist on classic Chanel tweed with this reverse jacket—with lapels cut low in the back—paired with black, cutoff denim and metallic heels. From the classic buttons, to the rebellious fray of the pant hem, to the singular sunny spark radiating from the quilted handbag, it’s the details here that make all the difference.

Cara Delevingne: Rounding out this trio of icy blondes, Cara also was on top form in her particular brand of edginess that actually didn’t involve a leggy mini this time out. Still, those slouchy, metallic trousers made her pins look a mile long. She rounded out her style warrior look with a Chanel choker and arm cuff along with a flirty, hot pink eye shadow that put plenty of pretty spunk into the look.

Front Row @ Giambattista Valli Fall 2017 Couture

As we all know, Giambattista Valli makes the most beautiful, magical dresses, so when I see how both Celine Dion and Olivia styled their front row looks I’m slightly perplexed.

Spring dresses with heavy fall shoes? In July? Mid-heat wave?

Sorry, I just don’t get it.

I suppose I can give Olivia a pass as her oxfords ground her feminine guipure lace look, but there will be no such forgiveness for Celine.

Her velvet over-the-knee burgundy boots don’t make any sense plus they totally overcook the look.

I hope this isn’t the beginning of the decline for Dion.

Zendaya Coleman Front Row @ Ralph & Russo Fall 2017 Couture

Following her Best Dressed of the Week triumph, Zendaya Coleman packed her favourite LeSilla white pumps and headed to Paris for Couture week, where she was the guest of honour at Ralph & Russo’s Fall 2017 Couture show.

Front Row: Try hard is something I believe is unfairly labelled to Zendaya, but that can’t be said about this Ralph & Russo Spring 2016 Couture look which is oozing with lady-like charm. For me she is a true style chameleon; always changing, evolving, surprising and delighting with effortless easy. Chopard jewels perfect this look.

Ralph & Russo Party: While a party is a good excuse to kick off those pumps, don a cocktail dress and hit the dancefloor, Zendaya opted to continue down the glamorous path with her bedazzled Ralph & Russo Spring 2017 Couture gown. Looking like royalty, the mood was elegant and refined, however, if I had to change one thing I would’ve opted for sandals here.

Front Row @ Schiaparelli Fall 2017 Couture

Olivia Palermo and Pixie Lott both wore their hearts on their sleeve—so to speak—while in attendance at the Schiaparelli Fall 2017 show on Monday (July 3) during Paris Fashion Week.

Olivia Palermo: This Schiaparelli look certainly captured my affection, several times over, as I was head over heels for its endearing spirit yet impossibly chic attitude. The darling whimsy of the heart, split open, on the crisply tailored dress was only magnified by the jacket—worn as a cape—with its hand-held heart embroidery.

Pixie Lott: The label’s heart motif showed up again in this free-flowing, red dress that definitely possessed its own charm. As for the notion that pink cannot be worn with red, Pixie would not subscribe as she brought in both hot neon and pastel varieties of the shade in shoes and hair, respectively.
