4 looks 1 girl fashion week paris solange knowles 2015

With Paris Fashion Week in full force, I’m unable to keep up with the fabulous sightings and street style. I’ll digest all I can and while I can, I’ll review some of the looks. Solange Knowles has been busy sitting front row at most of these shows. The fashionista has offered four strong looks so far. Which one are you digging?

It’s Spring and the sightings are getting more colourful, fun and bolder!

Today’s hot sightings include a mix of casual and high end sightings. Who sizzled and who fizzled? Let’s get cracking!

Lupita Nyongo’o made a great comeback after her latest flop at the CFDA 2014 Awards. Homegirl was shining like a morning star on Day 1 of the 2014 Maui Film Festival At Wailea. She paired a bold Calvin Klein tri-colour pencil dress with a pair of colourful strappy heel sandals. Colour blocking well done. Every element is working for Lupita here. No hair extensions, no bright eyeshadow. Just Lupita. I love this.

Emma Roberts was also at the event and I was in love with her white crochet bralet and matching pencil skirt. Adorable. By the way I need to visit this place! Everyone’s looking nice and tanned in crop tops and bold colours 🙂

It was all about bold colours for Solange Knowles too (can you tell it’s Spring???!) as she effortlessly worked the Gucci Beauty Launch event. A pink fitted blazer and matching cigarette trousers were on tap for Solo. She can do no wrong. J’adore. 

I want Hannah Bronfman’s dress! What cuteness 😉

Beyonce’s also in the mood for pink! The Pink Panther came out in her true colours as she stepped out for a date night with the hubby. I liked this.

She’s not in the mood for nude! Rihanna donned on a heavy black on black leather ensemble for a Paris charity event. She’s giving them. Fashion chameleon!

She later changed into another outfit for the evening. I love it.

 

It’s been warm down in London for the past few days so naturally the colourful ‘fits came out at the Glamour Women of the Year Awards.

Mollie King, Rochelle Humes and Vanessa White of The Saturdays looked amazing as always.

Samuel L Jackson showed up and out in an aqua suit. Serve Samuel!

Britain’s Got Talent judges Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon looked pretty.

Emma Willis was a bundle of sunshine in her bright maxi skirt and top combo.

And the book promotion continues! Kylie and Kendall Jenner looked all grown up as they stopped by The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.

Kylie opted for print top and black skirt. She later changed into a striped dress, biker jacket and her favourite Aquazzurra sandals. I love her hair.

Kendall Jenner looked chic in a black bustier top and pencil skirt which is a contrast to the turquoise trouser suit she donned yesterday. Expect to see a lot of their fashionable moments during this book promotion.

Meanwhile, Khloe Kardashian and Kourtney look casual as they go out for a sisterly walk in NYC. Damn, Khloe is in flats and she still looks so tall next to Kourtney in heels.

There you have it. Who wowed you? Who dared not?!

Happy Wednesday boos!!! A quick recap on yesterday’s hot sightings:

Beyonce Knowles and her sister Solange Knowles looked totally utterly fabulous at Gucci’s Chime For Change Event.

Beyonce went sans her braids in a white jumpsuit with a low front v-neck. Solange slayed for the gods in a bright orange blouse and white trousers. I’m loving her hair!

Blake Lively looked gorgeous in a mustard Gucci dress.

This is how casual chic is done guys! Cheryl Cole wowed in all white ensemble ahead of Radio 1 appearance. Her sheer blouse and white skinny jeans were uplifted by a pair of must-have £490 Saint Laurent Paris Lightning bolt leather pumps. Hawt!

Rihanna sure knows how to switch things up! She went for librarian chic in a sleeveless jumper, distressed jeans, killer pumps and a makeup free face on a stroll out and about in NYC.

Half of the Little Mix girl group were seen at the BBC Radio 1 music studios earlier today. Leigh-Anne Pinnock rocked a classic white crop top and distressed denim. White block sandals and sleek hair completed her look. Hot.

Band mate Perrie Edwards looked chic in a bright yellow jumper, a black skort, and black tights.

Another British girlband I love is The Saturdays. Rochelle Humes from the band hosted ‘This Morning’ alongside husband Marvin Humes. She looked gorgeous in a £39.50 A-Line Pleated Skater Dress from Marks & Spencer.

Kylie and Kendall Jenner are now authors! They attended their book signing looking stylish of course!

Kylie Jenner let her turquoise do the talking as she wore all black. Her black skater dress boasted box pleats and she paired it with £498 Aquazzura Amazon suede lace-up sandals.

Kendall Jenner opted for a navy blue dress featuring a keyhole cut out and suede pointed black pumps. Both sisters looked fab! Their book is a ghost-written teen fiction titled Rebels: The Story Of Lex And Livia. Will you be getting a copy?

Alicia Keys served up some cleavage at the 2014 Gordan Parks Foundation Awards Dinner & Auction In NY. She accessorized a wine coloured dress with a statement belt and black pumps.

Lala Anthony was giving face from every angle at the Starz ‘Power’ première after party. That makeup is on point.

Angelina Jolie looked classy and fab in a £1,880 silk-gossamer and stretch-wool jersey dress by Michael Kors at a Maleficient meet and greet in Shanghai.

Interesting: Angie was also wearing a gold version of her now famous ‘Maleficient’ heels which are custom made by Christian Louboutin. She’s been spotted in black and white versions already.

 

The white trend continues. Danity Kane members; Shannon Bex, Dawn Richard and Aubrey O’Day posed as they celebrated the release of their newest single ‘Lemonade’. Smoking. I’ve always loved them.

I loved Nicole Beharie‘s little white dress at Fox’s special screening of ‘Sleepy Hollow.’ However those black ankle booties are hot but were not the right shoes. Pretty girl though :/

Michelle Keegan launched her Lipsy Collection and showed of toned and tanned skin at the launch. Her biker jacket, high waisted shorts and lace inset top worked well for the event. Those legs!

Sarah Hyland wore an iridescent sequin shift dress to the Glamour Women of The Year Awards in London. Loving the new hair. This look was chic in my book.

 

That’s a lot of sightings!

Who were your top picks?

I think everyone looked cute 😉

Stay tuned for Style Diary!

The CFDA Fashion Awards is iconic for producing some of the the biggest fashion moments that go down in history. The annual event took place yesterday. So was history made? There was a lot of glitter, metallics, prints, draping and nudity. Let’s see who wore what:

Rihanna received the fashion icon of the year award. To whit, she kept every staring and talking. Her sheer custom made Adam Selman gown made entirely out of Swarovski crystals left nothing to the imagination. The gown came equipped with matching gloves and a scarf. Of course she looked good in it! Her body is the deal. Her unapologetic nature is what her fans have come to know and love her for. 

See the BadGal’s victory twerk. LOL!

Solange Knowles was not one to be left behind. Her sparkly custom made Calvin Klein dress was made to perfection. Love the hair and pink lips. What a fabulous comeback from the elevator episode.

Jennifer Hudson closely followed in a black gown

Chanel Iman looked every bit the supermodel in a Monique Lhuillier beaded gown.

Naomi Campbell and Tyson Beckford just complemented each others flawlessness. Naomi’s irridiscent gown and Tyson’s tuxedo were to die for.

Joan Smalls slayed in a cut out sexy gown and tousled hair.

Heidi Klum had me feeling thirsty for a fruit shake in this gorgeous maxi dress by Donna Karan. Very apt for the season. What a peachy delight!

Lupita Nyongo’o went bold in print. I wish the trousers were full and wide-legged instead of culottes but her face stayed flawless. If only she’d leave those hairpieces alone…

Chrissy Teigen was one of my favourites of the evening in a persimmon blazer and laser cut overlay dress by Rachel Roy. Nude Louboutin pumps finished her look. Yes!

Alicia Quarles looked pretty in a duchess satin crop shell top and a full matching skirt in bisque by Tia Cibani. Not my favourite look from her. Cute ensemble but the shoes are wrong.She’s beautiful though.

Blake Lively was dressed by Michael Kors in a playful and cute ensemble. I loved everything but the shoes. Blake is my girl though 😉

Style star Olivia Pallermo mixed textures in a fur top and fringe pencil skirt. Her shoes also featured some interesting detail. Nice.

Alessandra Ambrosio was a sight to behold in a strapless red silky gown.

Liya Kebede nailed effortless chic in a white blouse and print pencil skirt.

Yassss to Jessica Stam‘s white wide-legged jumpsuit with a cute keyhole cut on the front. I’d wear this now.

Emmy Rossum looked great in an olive green lace-inset gown by J.Mendel.

Marion Cotillard sported a white lace dress by Dior with a rather unique spin on the peplum trend. Interesting.

Bridget Moynahan went bold in a purple strapless dress. Nice.

Beth Behrs looked chic in a green crop top and maxi skirt. Love her shoes.

Stacey Bendet

Iman Abdulmajid‘s dress was little bit dated for my taste.

Ashley & Mary-Kate Olsen underwhelmed me in their black garments.

Rachel Roy rocked a floral gown underneath a black blazer. 

Sophia Bush looked beautiful in a white lace Marchesa gown. She could do without the necklace. Otherwise, stunning.

Hilary Rhoda was another favourite of mine. That peach fishtail lace dress is just stunning!

 

Zoey Deutch looked pretty in a floral skater dress.

My gay man crush Tom Ford looked dapper as usual.

Thom Browne pulled off the shorts suit.

Marc Jacobs was another dapper designer on the carpet.

 

Italo Zuccheli and Victor Cruz
