For many celebrities, making the rounds on the couture circuit is part of the job description. While there were plenty of A-list stars sitting front row at the latest Fall 2014 Couture week (we spotted Kim Kardashian, Kate Hudson, Pink and Jared Leto!), five of Hollywood’s hottest actresses (who also happen to top best-dressed lists on a regular basis) stood out at the celeb-packed shows. So to celebrate the end of a stellar fashion week, we present you Queen of Fall 2014 Couture Week: A roundup of our five best dressed front row attendees, from J.Lo to KStew.

J’adore Dior’s golden girl, Charlize Theron, pretty much embodied her role as the perfume’s spokeswoman showing up in a glittering metallic-gold mini dress. And with a handsome-looking arm candy in tow (ahem, Sean Penn), we don’t see why she shouldn’t be crowned today’s Couture Queen. But fellow Dior ambassador Jennifer Lawrence, who looked particularly summery thanks to her tan, caused just as much buzz at the Fall 2014 Couture show. Dressed in her second Resort outfit of the summer, she hit all the right notes, from the textured asymmetrical hairstyle down to her two-tone accessories. And as if we couldn’t love her more, this also happened. Read more »

Can you guess how much celebrities make in front row?


How Much Celebrities Make in Front Row

How much would a designer have to pay you to persuade you to sit front row? If you answered “nothing, duh” then you are not Rihanna.

Reports are gaining momentum online that reveal a hefty front row price tag for the A-list. Jessica Chastain is said to have received $80,0000 to attend an Armani Privé show during Milan Fashion Week. Seem a little steep? For $70,000, you’ll get cool girl approval by way of Chloë Sevigny.

According to The Telegraph, getting Beyoncé or Rihanna to park their (fantastic) booties along the runway will cost a cool $100,000 a piece. When you think of how frequently we are seeing these beauties front row the price tag becomes offensively impressive. If you do the math, that means Rihanna made almost a millie at Paris Fashion Week attending shows by Lanvin, Givenchy, Chanel and more.

We travelled Down Under to see what all the big fuss was about and rounded up the 7 top designers and moments to write home about from Sydney Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2015.

For those of you who attended any of the recent fashion weeks, the thought of attending shows during the summer is but a mere fantasy. Sandals! Crop tops! A far cry from February’s blizzards.

A week after Toronto Fashion Week, one of the city’s fashion stars made her return to the runway after a three-year hiatus. In case you need a refresh, The Coveteur co-founder Erin Kleinberg used to be a designer. Back in the mid-oughts, she became a bright young thing when stars like Mischa Barton, Blake Lively and Kim Kardashian were spotted in her low-key wares. For the next few years, she sold worldwide at Holt Renfrew, Barney’s, Nordstrom and others until putting the collection on hold to dominate the industry in another way: creeping the designer-filled closets of fashion’s elite.

Mikael D backstage beauty: Deconstructed beehives and luminous skin dial up the romance for Fall 2014

As runway light bounced off intricate embroidery at the Mikael D Fall 2014 show, the skin gleamed just the same. M.A.C senior artist Jane McKay drew inspiration from the opulence of Baroque textures and designed a fresh-yet-glamorous look. Radiance was an important element in the makeup: “It’s all about the play of light bouncing off the skin,” said Ricky Boudreau, M.A.C cosmetics trainer, who led the team backstage.

Models’ skin was moisturized with Strobe Cream and kept lustrous with a light application of Mineralize Moisture Foundation and Concealer. Boudreau softly sculpted the cheeks with Sculpt Powder and added an additional hit of illumination with an iridescent loose powder—“Silver Dusk”—applied around the eye, from brow to cheekbone. Brows were simply groomed with Brow Set in “Clear.” Finally, eyelids were drenched in bronzed gold tones and intensified with a set of MAC #33 lashes and multiple coats of mascara. Boudreau pressed a layer of “Half & Half” lipstick into the lips with his fingers for a neutral pout. Read more »

Your first time at any international fashion week will teach you a valuable lesson: You need a fur. And not just any Margot Tenenbaum style granny hand-me-down. A fur so intricately patterned, multi-layered and artificially coloured, that it has to be designer. Given its place at the apex of the top Fall 2014 trends, you’d think recessionary times were long gone—it’s virtually everywhere, from a hyper colour mink at Altuzarra to a fluffy red dress at Prada. Wear it with caution or as Dior prescribes, dangle it over your arm like it’s no big d. Let the fur fly, scruples or otherwise.
