Fan Bingbing In Louis Vuitton – Louis Vuitton Fall 2012 Presentation

Our favourite Asian actress, Fan Bingbing, has been M.I.A for a while.

I was delighted to see her in Paris for Louis Vuitton’s Fall 2012 presentation this morning.

Oh how I have missed her. I mean who else is going to show up at a fashion show channelling Hilda Ogden.

Whilst paying homage to the British TV legend wearing a white lace head wrap over her red curls, she wore a white Louis Vuitton Spring 2012 laser cut dress with a voluminous skirt.

I love the chic white wool coat worn over her shoulders. It gives her look cosy winter feel.

A white clutch and red platform pumps to match her red lips completed her look.

Alexander McQueen Fall 2012

The one thing I love about an Alexander McQueen show is that you can expect the unexpected.

In a dark-lit room with the fibre optic lights hanging from the ceiling, the first model stormed the runway wearing an ivory jacquard coat with a Mongolian fur collar.

As the show progressed, the feminine, futuristic looks became more explosive as they pulsated down the runway.

We saw coats, capes, jackets and skirts adorned with feathers, fur pom poms, Mongolian fur and laser-cut pony skin on leather.

One look had a degraded effect of mink, goat fur and ostrich feathers, which was paired with knee-high black mink-trimmed boots.

The pretty dresses with silver dandelion embroideries seem made for Florence Welch.

A selection of fuchsia looks followed which had metal and enamel embroideries shaped into blossoms with an atelier-like precision.

The finale looks sang ‘hello Lady Gaga’ very loudly. Even though the singer is petite, I can see her wearing the black shaved organza gown.

Key accessories included visors, which I’m sure we will see Bryan Boy wearing next fashion week, heel-less shoes and metal waistbands.

We may not get to see the majority of our favourite looks on the red carpet, it will be exciting to see who will get an opportunity to wear the first look.

Who are you hedging your bets on?

Front Row: Salma Hayek and Anna Wintour

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Lady Gaga, Florence Welch, Cate Blanchett, Tilda Swinton, Rose Byrne, Daphne Guinness and Anne Hathaway

Elizabeth Olsen In Balmain – ‘Silent House’ Premiere

Elizabeth Olsen was in New York City last night to promote her latest movie, ‘Silent House’ at AMC Loews Lincoln Square.

The young actress wore a simple long sleeve black dress which she paired with a Balmain Spring 2012 jacket.

Her ivory jacket with gold embroidered details is the perfect example of making a look work for your style.

She didn’t try to give us Kate Moss just because she was wearing Balmain. She nonchalantly added the piece to her look along with a blue The Row clutch and black pumps with gold micro studs.

Flawless makeup made her baby blue eyes pop and she added a nude glossy lip colour to her look.

Sarah Jessica Parker In Louis Vuitton – Louis Vuitton Fall 2012 Presentation

I love Sarah Jessica Parker, I really do, but she doesn’t half test my love.

If she’s not over accessorising, she wearing a cross body bag on the red carpet.

Today the actress was front row at Louis Vuitton during Paris Fashion Week wearing a Louis Vuitton Spring 2005 look which features my two pet peeves: a visible bra and white shoes.

I would’ve given her a pass on the white LV pumps, but I just can’t get on board with the bra which is visible via the lace part of her LWD.

This is such a huge shame because I love the dress, just not how she has presented it.

I do, however, love her voluminous mane.

Love or loathe?

Katy Perry In Moschino Cheap And Chic – Colette

Katy Perry took time out from making appearances in the front row at shows during Paris Fashion Week, for a bit of ‘me time’ shopping at Colette.

She donned a typically quirky look from the Moschino Cheap and Chic Fall 2012 collection.

The singer wore a rose Moshino Cheap and Chic double breasted coat over a makeup print dress with a black yoke from the same collection.

I’m glad she kept the pink pearls.

Miu Miu glitter shades, pink ankle strap pumps and an Edie Parker clutch completed her look.

This is more like the Katy Perry we know and love.

Pierre Balmain Fall 2012

Pierre Balmain’s Fall 2012 collection was presented in a grand venue during Paris Fashion Week on Monday.

The diffusion line to the Balmain offers the same edgy, rocker chic pieces as the mainline collection, but in a less studded, more youthful and affordable way.

On a colour palette of black, white and grey, the second season serves up biker jackets, blouses, tailored blazers with structured shoulders, shearling lined coats, chiffon printed tops, body conscious designs and boyish basics with feminine accents.

We do see micro studs on a wool coat, tunics and skinny pants for those who really want to feel like a rock star.

The new collection also has an accompanying film inspired by French and Italian films of the last fifties / early sixties starring Melissa Stasiuk alongside male model Adrien Sahores.
