It may be the heat of summer, but many celebrities flew to Paris recently to celebrate the best Fall/Winter 2013/2014 collections by the world's best designers. One of the hottest shows to attend was Chanel's thanks to its timeless elegance and ability to make fitted jackets and simple white and black pieces look flashy and fashion-forward. The recent event drew in many A-list stars, though some, like Kristen Stewart, Rihanna and Rose Byrne, stood out from the rest. All of these famous ladies added major style to their custom Chanel ensembles by way of their gorgeous accessories.
One thing that agrees with Stewart's recent break up with Robert Pattinson is her style. The actress has gone from grungy and dirty to sleek and polished in a matter of months. She perfectly combined the classic look of Chanel with her tougher, tomboy attitude while attending the show in Paris.
According to People magazine, Stewart strutted her stuff in a pair of Daisy Duke-style leather shorts that perfectly showed off her toned, yet pale gams. She paired the rocker-chic bottoms with a feminine, three-quarter sleeve, white double-breasted blazer that covered her entire frame to the top of her thighs. The actress brought more depth to the style wearing gorgeous, velvet, pointed-toe strappy heels, fingerless leather gloves and a few silver chains and diamond bracelets on either wrist.
Stewart added to the look by pulling her hair back in a sleek bun and rocking gorgeous smoky-eye makeup. You can add some sass to a similar leather short and white blouse combo with rocker-chic bracelets like the actress. A piece like the 2.25 TCW Round Cubic Zirconia Silvertone Metal Pavé-Link Bracelet 7 1/4" might be the perfect mix of feminine and masculine to garner major fashion points.
Leave it to Rihanna to pair an over-the-top "dress" with stunning girlie pearl strands. The singer, known for pushing the envelope when it comes to taking fashion risks, did not disappoint while attending the recent show. Ri turned heads wearing an oversized cream floor-length cardigan. This may sound rather tame for the fashionista, but she made sure to sass it up by only buttoning three buttons at her waist.
The placement perfectly accentuated her long, toned legs and the majority of her chest and stomach, but kept her arms under? wraps. Rihanna might be the only person to pull off this look, and she added even more fabulousness thanks to her accessories. The singer and actress donned simple tan and black heels and a peach Chanel purse. She took the look to the extreme by adding on multiple strands of pearls in white, cream and pink colors. She added a pretty flower to one for a girlier attitude.
While you might not be as daring as Ri to rock a cardigan as a dress, you can take style points from her accessories. Strands of pearls like the Round Simulated Pearl Silvertone Multi-Strand Waterfall Necklace Adjustable 16" To 19" can instantly take your common white blouse from average to extraordinary.
This "Bridesmaid" actress was the most covered up of the three starlets, donning a gorgeous seashell-print frock from Chanel that boasted a v-neck and cutesy bows at the shoulders. While her dress was pretty, she helped make the look more glamorous with her diamond bangles and diamond cocktail ring.
It's true that diamonds are a girl's best friend, and Byrne proved they're beautiful enough to take a simple dress and transform it into evening-worthy attire in a flash. You can add major points to your LBD or a longer dress this summer with the addition of a blinged-out ring like the chic 7.19 TCW Oval Cut Cubic Zirconia Platinum Over Sterling Silver Cocktail Swirl Ring.
