Front Row @ Chanel Spring 2018

The final day of Paris Fashion Week brought with it a 50-foot waterfall like only designer Karl Lagerfeld can create at his water-themed Chanel Spring 2018 collection on Tuesday (October 3), where Chanel-clad guests sat front row to witness the show.

Clemence Poesy: Classic Chanel tweed took a less expected turn with Clemence’s pairing of pearls and cuffed pants. Lug-sole loafers completed the look, which had a certain unconventional boyish-charm.

Sophie Cookson: Meanwhile, the LBD got a Chanel lift with the logo belt, quilted clutch, and over-the-knee boots for an eternally chic look.

Monica Bellucci: Wearing her favoured colour of black, Monica kept her look simple and sophisticated with a coat and slim trousers.

Front Row @ Valentino Spring 2018

The Valentino Spring 2018 front row had no shortage of chic beauties eager to take in designer Pierpaolo Piccioli’s take on elegant whimsy during Paris Fashion Week on Sunday (October 1).

Natalia Vodianova: Her previous less-is-more M.O. at the Givenchy show was replaced by a more-is-more look in this Valentino Resort 2018 keyhole frock, resplendent with folk patterning. Glittery Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Luce’ ankle boots and a statement earring ensured this was no ordinary maxi dress.

Marion Cotillard: Offering up her blonde ’do in a punk faux-hawk of sorts, the actress donned a Valentino Resort 2018 ensemble that merged menswear-inspired pinstripes, sporty track pants, and feminine, sheer lace. What united the motley collection of trends was the sophisticated colour palette, to which the kelly-green, embellished sandals simply did not make sense.

Izabel Goulart: I loved the romantic simplicity and feminine seduction of this Valentino Resort 2018 plisse dress, which flowed so beautifully and effortlessly around Izabel’s silhouette as she walked. Here, the green accents made perfect sense in the subtle piping at the neckline, the bow at the waist, and her matching clutch.

Hiba Abouk In Christian Dior – 65th San Sebastian Film Festival Closing Gala

Hiba Abouk attended the closing gala for the 65th San Sebastian Film Festival at Kursaal on Saturday (September 30) in Spain.

Christian Dior has presented many sheer dress in recent collections with logo emblazoned underwear, but the Spanish actress proved that lining a look, doesn’t necessarily mean killing the look.

In fact the look is vastly improved as the rich embroidery really shines against the dense background.

This look is a perfect reflection of the present season bringing to mind romantic walks in a park as the leaves turn orange and brown.

Penelope Cruz In Atelier Versace – ‘Loving Pablo’ San Sebastian Film Photocall

Penelope Cruz went ultra glam for the ‘Loving Pablo’ photocall during 65th San Sebastian Film Festival on Saturday (September 30) in Spain wearing Atelier Versace.

As you would expect from any Atelier Versace gown there were plenty of sultry elements, however, I have a feeling that some might object the slit and the bare shoulder; wishing for one or the other.

I would’ve preferred this look sans sleeve and an updo rather than the ponytail.

Thoughts?

Front Row @ Givenchy Spring 2018

Paris Fashion Week saw a host of pretties on the front row at the Givenchy Spring 2018 show on Sunday (October 1) to witness designer Clare Waight Keller’s first collection for the label.

Lily Collins: Angelic with an edge. That’s exactly how I’d describe Lily’s diaphanous white lace dress punctuated by the black under-straps and mod white booties. I did find myself wishing for a more streamlined, barely-there black sandal here.

Cate Blanchett: Queen Cate was back in all her glory in this impossibly chic suiting ensemble. I love how the cropped proportions and the midnight-blue lip motif on the jacket—coupled with her pendant necklaces—brought a sense of unconventional yet effortless sophistication to the look.

Fan Bingbing: Despite its all-white palette, there was a dramatic allure that permeated this trench dress that saw Fan continuing to step across the line of her go-to, princess-and-platform styles. She balanced the subtle mystique of the sheer sleeves, which was echoed in the sheer gloves and sheer pants, with her sleek bun and bold red lip.

Monica Bellucci In Valentino – 65th San Sebastian Film Festival: Donostia Award

Monica Bellucci received the Donostia Award during 65th San Sebastian Film Festival on Wednesday (September 27) in Spain.

The Italian actress is a lover of all things black, but she will throw us a red or green curve ball every once in a while.

On this occasion her colour of choice was rose-pink, and I’m instantly smitten.

Some might say this is Valentino dress is dated, but I only see the beauty in this piece with its swathes of silk chiffon pleats which bring a lightness that is impossible to resist.

I especially love the delicate sleeves, that give the silhouette intrigue and augment the floaty, feminine allure.

In short, J’Adore.

Cartier jewels completed her look.
