Couture AW12: Jessica Alba & Fan Bing Bing Dazzle At Atelier Versace

Yesterday, Italian fashion house Versace opened Paris Haute Couture at the iconic Ritz Paris to showcase their autumn/winter 2012 Atelier Versace collection. Last season the label returned to the couture schedule with a presentation, which included some incredible gowns that we’ve already seen on the red carpet, but last night they opened Couture week in style with a catwalk show, if I do say so myself back to wear they belong!!!

I am going to be blogging more on the collection, I don’t want to tease but it was a gorgeous pastel display of utlra-sexy gowns that I am sure the front row celebrities including Jessica Alba, Lea Michele, Fan Bing BingElizabeth Banks, and Christina Hendricks were picking out their next red carpet appearance looks from.

My favourite celebrity look had to be the Jessica Alba’s incredible strapless black leather Versace cocktail dress enriched by black swarowski crystals from the autumn/winter 2012 collection – how divine is this edgy dress and so unexpected from Jessica. I really think that Jessica should wear studs more often!!!

It was tough to choose my favourite look as I also adored Fan Bing Bing in her bright yellow Versace cocktail dress also from the autumn/winter 2012 collection, I love the silver chain-metal detailing to the front and side.

Also gracing the front row was a demure Lea Michele, who actually looked good in a bright orange Versace cocktail dress with grey leather inserts on the front, but what got me was how tiny she is next to Cory Monteith.

The OTT and totally Versace award has to go to M.I.A. who wore a vintage Gianni Versace printed outfit consisting of gold printed lycra leggings, a gold printed top and leather jacket.

Who gets your best dressed award?

PFW Front Row: Rachel Bilson Has A Barbie Moment

Who: Actress Rachel Bilson

Where: Front row at the Christian Dior fashion show at Espace Ephemere Tuileries during Paris Fashion Week SS11

Wearing: A Christian Dior head-to-toe look in a bright pink silk georgette dress from the SS10 collection teamed with a black Lady Dior clutch and triple buckle heels

Verdict: I saw Video Barbie front row at London Fashion Week but Rachel took it a step further and wore a candy pink coloured dress that has Barbie written all over it. I love the silk overlay to this cute dress and the frill lacy hem it looks perfect on her. But with a lot of outfits I am seeing recently I am being drawn to the shoes, and the triple buckle heels are divine – and have been added to my wish-list!!
