Front Row @ Chanel Spring 2019 Haute Couture

Fashion Blogger Catherine Kallon features Front Row @ Chanel Spring 2019 Haute Couture

Chanel presented their Spring 2019 Haute Couture collection in front of ambassadors including Kristen Stewart, plus other celebrities (who I hope to see wearing Chanel in the future) today (January 2) in Paris.

Marion Cotillard: The French actress looked endlessly chic in her Chanel Spring 2019 look styled with Gianvito Rossi gold-tipped pumps. This might just be the first time I’ve loved those cycle-style shorts on the red carpet.

Tilda Swinton: The always effortless Tilda Swinton made this Chanel Pre-Fall 2019 look her own. This is the very definition of chic, because she didn’t try too hard.

Tessa Thompson: While the quilted bag as a necklace isn’t working for me, I love the simple vibe of her Chanel look. It seemed too be the theme of the day at this event.

Tessa Thompson In Marc Jacobs – 9th Annual Bombay Sapphire Artisan Series Finale

Fashion Blogger Catherine Kallon feature the Tessa Thompson In Marc Jacobs - 9th Annual Bombay Sapphire Artisan Series Finale

The 9th Annual Bombay Sapphire Artisan Series Finale was hosted by Tessa Thompson on Thursday (December 6) in Miami Beach, Florida, which was attended by Laura Harrier.

As you know I love the Marc Jacobs Spring 2019 collection, and I love Tessa’s style even more, but this organza ruffle top and shiny sequin dressy trousers combo didn’t deliver in the way I wanted to.

I’m going to blame the camera angle for the reason Tessa’s profile is unrecognisable here, and the fact that I think anyone would struggle under that many ruffles.

Malone Souliers ‘Maureen’ pumps in a golden yellow hue completed her look.

Tessa Thompson In Valentino Haute Couture – ‘Creed II’ London Premiere

Tessa Thompson In Valentino Haute Couture - 'Creed II' London Premiere

Tessa Thompson was the queen of the night on the red carpet for the premiere of ‘Creed II’ at BFI IMAX on Wednesday (November 28) in London.

Green appears to be the theme of this promo tour judging by her Jimmy Kimmel appearance and New York premiere. Perhaps we need to see the film to glean the connection.

On this occasion she wore Valentino Fall 2018 Haute Couture.

I’ve looked at this dress from every angle, and it instantly became clear that this gown is deceptively simple, and one that’s hard to pull off.

Thankfully, Tessa has both the style and confidence to carry off the look with such grace and ease.

Cartier jewels and a 5ft long braided ponytail completed her look along with some flawless makeup.

Tessa Thompson In Prada – ‘Creed II’ New York Premiere

 Tessa Thompson In Prada - 'Creed II' New York Premiere

Tessa Thompson joined Kayla Foster at the ‘Creed II’ New York premiere on Wednesday (November 14).

After a confusing moment, the ‘Westworld’ actress seems to have found her sweet spot again with this Prada ensemble.

The mini captures the brand’s whimsical, retro spirit with the flowing sheer sleeves and paillette embellishment.

The accessories were carefully considered with the metallic heels playing off the rhinestone detailing and the lurid clutch mirroring the metallic shine.

Tessa Thompson In Christopher John Rodgers – Jimmy Kimmel Live

Tessa Thompson In Christopher John Rodgers - Jimmy Kimmel Live

Tessa Thompson paid a visit to ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ on Tuesday (November 13) to discuss ‘Creed II.’

She has an experimental spirit in terms of fashion, but I’m sure many will be uncertain about what this Christopher John Rodgers Spring 2019 look is about.

I could have perhaps got behind the lookbook version if it was worn to the right event and styled in an appropriate manner, but it feels very out of place for the late night appearance.

And with the belt, it almost feels like she has borrowed the outfit from a period film set.

Tessa Thompson In Tingyue Jiang & Thom Browne – Build Series & ‘Sorry To Bother You’ New York Premiere

It would appear that Tessa Thompson is undergoing a change of direction style-wise.

Many of you weren’t onboard with her Rosie Assoulin MTV Awards look, so I’m intrigued to find out how you feel about these two latest offerings.

Build Series: If you watched the BOF Summit talk with Elizabeth Saltzman, Jason Bolden and Karla Welch, they all said in unison that they love discovering and breaking new designers. It appears that Tessa’s stylists, Wayman + Micah share that sentiment, as they outfitted Tessa in a dress by Parsons MFA graduate Tinygue Jiang. What I love about this piece is the imperfect elements, like the ripped shoulder and jagged edges. The look feels so raw and exposed, yet beautiful and fashion forward. Brother Vellies ‘Palms’ pump in ostrich feathers with plexiglass heel plus Dylanlex jewels completed the look, along with a single strand of white beads in her braids.

‘Sorry To Bother You’ New York Premiere: There are so many elements to her Thom Brown Spring 2018 look, that I’m not sure where to start. The lines are continually blurred between women’s and menswear, and no one does this better than Thom Browne. I love the semi-sheerness of the plaid fabric and the suspended skirt for a truly unique look. The point at which I found myself struggling was the accessories. The Thom Browne shoes barely pass, but the briefcase attempts to take this down a costumey path. Perhaps had the bag been smaller, I would’ve been on board. Carelle rings completed her look.
