Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Valentino Fall 2014 Couture Front Row Paris

Valentino presented their beautiful Fall 2014 Couture collection at the Hotel Salmon de Rothschild in Paris, France yesterday evening (July 9) during Couture Fashion Week.

Olivia Palermo: The socialite, who has been front and centre at most of the Couture shows, arrived wearing a Valentino Fall 2014 tri-colour white, black and red dress with a standard collar and colour-block skirt, which is the kind of dainty look we would expect from Olivia. We would also expect her to style the look with some interesting accessories, and she didn’t disappoint, carrying a green Valentino Gryphon fringed clutch and donning her favourite Sergio Rossi sandals. You may remember that Emma Stone wore this same dress during her ‘Spider-Man’ 2 promo tour.

Kim Kardashian: It was not a surprise to see Kim in attendance, considering Valentino Garavani opened up his Parisian estate for her and Kanye back in May, allowing them to host their pre-wedding brunch there. Wearing a plunging pale-blue Valentino gown (which I believe is from the Pre-Fall 2014 collection), she kept the styling simple, accessorizing with diamond jewels.

Emma Watson: Clocking up as many front row seats as Nina Dobrev, the British actress wore a Valentino Resort 2015 two-piece macramé lace bralet and high-waist maxi skirt, opting not to wear the white shirt we saw in the look book. I love how she gave this look an edge by donning a BLK DNM black leather jacket. The rest of the styling included red suede pumps, a dark-green M2Malletier Fabricca leather clutch and a single Delfina Delettrez ‘Fishing for Compliments’ pearl earring with two pearls. My girl crush deepens.

Elie Saab Fall 2014 Front Row

Celebs took to the front row for the Elie Saab Fall 2014 Couture show presented during Couture Fashion Week in Paris this afternoon (July 9).

Nina Dobrev: Having worn an Elie Saab gown to the Bulgari event last night, the actress was front and centre, no doubt selecting potential looks for upcoming red carpet appearances. Opting for a sexy, laidback vibe, she wore a sheer black Elie Saab top with a mauve Elie Saab maxi skirt featuring a side slit, which she toughened up with a black Elie Saab leather jacket slung over her shoulders. The look was styled with an Elie Saab bordeaux ‘Poincarè’ clutch bag and black sandals.

Olivia Palermo: Continuing to champion pattern play, the socialite opted for a black and white look featuring a spotted Tibi top, Banana Republic floral-print trousers and a Christian Dior leopard-print bag. The look was pulled together with a chic black blazer and some sexy diamante-encrusted sandals.

Chanel Fall 2014 Couture Front Row

Chanel presented their Fall 2014 Couture collection this morning in Paris, France during Haute Couture Fashion Week and as you would expect their front row was jam packed with celebs.

Kristen Stewart: Hmm… what can I say? The look had a lot of potential, but I can’t take those sheer Chanel Resort 2015 Aladdin pants seriously.

Jared Leto: The actor/musician stayed true to his rocker style wearing a printed white back-to-front tee with a light denim shirt and skinny tweed pants from Chanel’s Pre-Fall 2014 collection.

Lily Collins: The actress wore a casual printed knit sweater with a confetti red and silver Chanel Pre-Fall 2014 pencil skirt which provided an interesting contrast to the rest of her I’m-just-popping-to-the-mall look. A fringed Chanel bag and simple grey pumps completed the look

Giambattista Valli Fall 2014 Couture Front Row

Giambattista Valli presented his Fall 2014 Couture show during Paris Fashion Week on Monday evening (July 7).

Sarah Close: The designer invited YouTube singing sensation Sarah Close to his show after falling for her charms: both beauty and talent. The lucky girl wore a Giambattista Valli Fall 2013 Couture white frock rendered with a blue embroidered bodice and a printed flared skirt. It’s a fairytale dress, perfect for the circumstances and the occasion, which she styled with white satin sandals.

Emma Watson: To close what was a busy day for the British actress, Emma kept it simple in black for this occasion. Wearing a drape-front black Grace blouse and J brand jeans, she styled the look with black pumps and a black bag, with only a touch of magenta to the lip providing a pop of colour. I would’ve died to have seen her wearing one of the dainty dresses from any of the GBV collections, but this is a chic showing nonetheless.

The Cosmopolitan Beauty Awards

The Cosmopolitan Beauty Awards took place at the Platea Restaurant on Monday (July 7) in Madrid, Spain. Here’s a look at five lovely ladies who caught my eye.

Dafne Fernandez: As you know I have had a long-time crush on Dafne’s style. The Spanish actress wore a gorgeous Burberry Prorsum Pre-Fall 2014 frock with a romantic, preternaturally pretty, simple design rendered in gauzy silk georgette in a fluttering silhouette with a deep V-neck and double slits in the skirt. The look was styled with burnt-orange Roger Vivier pumps, gold jewels and a luscious red lip.

Celia Freijeiro: The actress certainly stood out in her incredibly chic Roksanda Ilincic colour-block patchwork bouclé wool dress from the designer’s Spring 2013 collection. Adding one more colour into the mix, she opted for coral peep-toes, with a black clutch rounding out her look

Natalia de Molina: I almost didn’t recognise Natalia with her new red hair and blunt bangs. Opting for a pink and black frock with a chiffon wrap-layered skirt, this look is more fun and in tune with the spirit of the magazine.

Christian Dior Falll 2014 Couture Front Row

Christian Dior presented their Fall 2014 Haute Couture collection this afternoon (July 7) in Paris, France with a host of familiar faces in the front row.

Charlize Theron: The brand’s golden girl shimmered in the front row wearing a metallic-gold short-sleeved mini dress which showcased those gorgeous gams, which were elongated further with nude pumps. Yellow-gold Anita Ko diamond earring completed her look. Glamour in its simplest form.

Marion Cotillard: Of all the Dior ambassadors, the French actress has perhaps worn the brand most consistently. While not every look has been a hit, she is always a delight to watch. On this occasion she wore a Resort 2014 black top with a fold-over detail and printed silk-scarf panel paired with a high-waisted skirt. The styling was kept simple with Dior pumps and a Miss Dior bag, as was the hair and makeup. Anyone else think this look was crying out for a pair of red pumps?

Jennifer Lawrence: Despite going into her second term as a Dior ambassador, she is still the new kid on the block. Like Marion, Jennifer’s selections for Dior haven’t always been so well received, but on this occasion she proves herself a worthy ambassador, wearing a Resort 2014 ‘Noeud Dior’ printed silk-scarf top paired with a white suede high-waisted skirt. J’adore the two-tone black and white accessories, which included pumps with both ankle and asymmetrical straps, a patent-leather clutch, and Dior tribal earrings. We whine about Jennifer often looking too old in her Dior looks, but I’m sure you will agree this look doesn’t age her at all. This is one of my favourite JLaw/Dior looks (although not a fan of the makeup). And thank God her hairstylist realized they were working with a 20-something star and not Hillary Clinton.
