Zhang Ziyi In Jenny Packham – Jinji Hundred Flowers Film Festival

Zhang Ziyi In Jenny Packham - Jinji Hundred Flowers Film Festival

Zhang Ziyi attended the Jinji Hundred Flowers Film Festival in China on Saturday (September 27), where she picked up the Best Actress Award.

Perhaps knowing she was a dead-cert for the award, she selected a navy Jenny Packham Fall 2014 dress trimmed with sparkling gold detailing to complement her golden award.

The elegant streamline look – which showcases a bit more skin than we are used to seeing from Ziyi via the cut outs – is unstated glamour at its finest.

Louis Vuitton Spring 2015 Front Row

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.

Nieves Alvarez In Dsquared² – 2014 Icon Magazine Awards

Nieves Alvarez In Dsquared² - 2014 Icon Magazine Awards

Nieves Alvarez attended the 2014 Icon Magazine Awards held at the Italian Consulate on Wednesday (October 1) in Madrid, Spain.

Mastering the masculine trend to perfection, the model wore a Dsquared2 black double-breasted tuxedo with satin peaked lapels paired with a crisp white shirt and black bowtie.

I love her 100% commitment to this look: the steely glare, the manly pose, the slicked-back hair. Not trying to play this down at all works in her favour.

Adding slight feminine touches, she styled the look with Christian Louboutin accessories including peep-toe ankle-strap sandals and a crystallized clutch.

Does anyone here believe that Christian Louboutin flats or brogues would’ve worked better with this look, or are you enjoying this dominant masculine look with slight feminine touches?

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.

Juana Acosta In Andrew Gn & Stéphane Rolland – San Sebastian International Film Festival

Juana Acosta In Andrew Gn & Stéphane Rolland - San Sebastian International Film Festival

Juana Acosta continued her jury duty while attending a premiere during the San Sebastian International Film Festival this weekend.

‘Murieron Por Encima De Sus Posibilidades’ premiere: The actress wore an Andrew Gn Fall 2014 look. I love the lightweight feel of the look, plus the texture given to it via the feathers; however, it would’ve been interesting to see this look styled with accessories other than black.

62nd San Sebastian International Film Festival closing ceremony: On Sunday (September 27) the actress stunned again, this time wearing a Stéphane Rolland Couture white knit cape gown with appliqués in blue, silver and black at the hem of her skirt which, along with the cape, really bring this look alive. I didn’t ever think I would be so enamoured with a knit dress on the red carpet, but I’m floored. She perfected the the look with Baccara jewels, swept back hair and a dark-berry lip. Do you agree, or can you never get behind a knit dress on the red carpet?

Hailee Steinfeld In Mary Katrantzou – 2014 Teen Vogue Young Hollywood Party

Hailee Steinfeld In Mary Katrantzou - 2014 Teen Vogue Young Hollywood Party

Hailee Steinfeld attended the 2014 Teen Vogue Young Hollywood Party on Friday (September 26) in Los Angeles, California.

The young starlet took a spin in a Mary Katrantzou Fall 2014 midnight-blue dress with crystal and beaded embellishment, which she paired with Bionda Castana ‘Karlie’ black booties.

Devoid of the designer’s more recognizable, dynamic digital prints, the frock did have some fun with its robotic-like figures at the neckline and the voluminous, pleated party skirt.

Never afraid to flaunt quirkier fashion selections, Hailee instead veered in a more girly direction, embracing the youthful and fun spirit of the frock with her long waves.

While the more mannish footwear may have been worn in an effort to tame the sugary silhouette, they were a rather heavy, blocky finish.
