Earlier today, the most anticipated ready-to-wear show of the season kicked off at the Grand Palais in Paris. Chanel reigning King of the world (or so we must infer from the giant globe in the centre of the room), Karl Lagerfeld was there to greet his famous fashionable fans that included Vanessa Paradis, Leigh Lezark, Alice Dellal, Anna Wintour, Livia Firth, Milla Jovovich, Princess Caroline of Hanover, Jessica Chastain and Clotilde Hesme.

Diane Kruger and Hailee Steinfeld brought their Hollywood star power to the Chanel Spring/Summer 2013 Haute Couture fashion show in Paris earlier today.

Meanwhile, Hailee wore a Chanel cardigan and Christian Louboutin heels. Other celebrities who turned out included stylish girls like Rita Ora, Clémence Poésy, and the singer Grimes.

Sarah Jessica Parker, Dianna Agron, and Christina Ricci hit the red carpet at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC last night to celebrate the premiere of HBO's In Vogue: The Editor's Eye. Dianna donned a printed dress from Bottega Veneta, while Sarah Jessica paired a vintage dress with a blue velvet overcoat.
The celebs were joined by a host of big fashion personalities, including Vogue's Anna Wintour and other senior fashion editors, as well as designers Tory Burch, Vera Wang, Marchesa's Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig, and Derek Lam. Models Joan Smalls, Karen Elson, Arizona Muse, and Karlie Kloss turned out as well. We have a look at the trailer for In Vogue: The Editor's Eye ahead of its debut on HBO tomorrow at 9 p.m. Karlie, for one, was excited to see the finished product. She tweeted just before arriving at the Met, "Ready to see the amazing editors talk about bringing the stories come to life!"
Last night in London, Livia Firth, Felicity Jones and Anna Wintour stepped out for the London Evening Standard Theatre Awards co-hosted by Christopher Bailey of Burberry, Anna Wintour of American Vogue and Evening Standard Chairman Evgeny Lebedev. Whilst it is no surprise that all of these classy ladies looked radiant on the red carpet, they were also glowing in long, white ball gowns — well, in Anna's case, pale gold and a white bolero jacket. The colour of the moment surprised me a bit as we usually see Winter white, a more creamy, eggshell shade this time of year, but the starkness against the grassy step and repeat looked undeniably breathtaking. Take a peek through these photos to find out who designed these stunning dresses that you can see from all angles.
David and Victoria Beckham were among the famous faces that celebrated the 2012 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund finalists at a dinner held at Bouchon in Beverly Hills last night. Vogue's editor in chief, Anna Wintour, was on hand, as was Camilla Belle, Busy Philipps, and Leslie Mann. The fun kicked off earlier in the day at the Chateau Marmont, where Victoria mingled with Jennifer Aniston, Gwen Stefani, and Katy Perry during a fashion show featuring the CFDA finalists. January Jones, who wore a Rachel Zoe jumpsuit, attended the afternoon event while her Mad Men costars Jon Hamm and Jessica Paré were on location in Hawaii filming season six of the series.
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen joined Julianne Moore last night at WSJ. Magazine's Innovator of the Year awards. The bash was held at the Museum of Modern Art in NYC. In addition to the innovator being honored, it was a big night for the editorial staff at the magazine — WSJ's new editor Kristina O'Neill, formerly of Harper's Bazaar, was in attendance, too. Mary-Kate and Ashley's line The Row was recognized by WSJ. for being the fashion innovator of the year, and their statue was presented by the Tribeca Film Festival's cofounder Jane Rosenthal.
Gwyneth Paltrow showed skin in a cutout little black dress designed by Michael Kors at last night's Golden Heart Gala, benefiting the God's Love We Deliver charity, in NYC. She was joined at the charitable event by other Michael Kors-clad celebrities like Karolina Kurkova, a newly brunette Brooklyn Decker, and Anna Wintour. Michael himself had the honor of sitting between Bette Midler and Anna Wintour during dinner. Gwyneth took the stage to introduce Glee creator Ryan Murphy, who made a speech and even asked Bette if she'd make a cameo on Glee — to his relief, she said yes! Michael was also honored at the fete for making a generous gift that will allow God's Love, a nonprofit that delivers meals to the seriously ill, to fund a new building.
Kirsten Dunst and Rachel Zoe joined Vogue editor in chief Anna Wintour yesterday at Rodarte's Spring 2013 show in NYC. The three women each claimed a front-row seat to watch the ambitious, fantasy-inspired collection come down the runway. NYFW kicked off last week, and celebrities including Lauren Conrad, Ashley Greene, and Victoria Beckham — who showed the latest collection from her eponymous clothing line on Sunday — have also flocked to the Big Apple for the stylish festivities.
Kirsten is a longtime friend and fan of Rodarte designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy, and carved time out of her work schedule to step out in support of the sisters' latest show. Just a few days ago, Kirsten was at the Toronto International Film Festival for the premiere of On the Road. She headed back to the States this weekend with her costar and boyfriend, Garrett Hedlund, by her side.
