We have been in full swing for my wishes for stars to perch themselves front row at all of the biggest shows that will take place next week at Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week. Usually the July front rows are less star studded than the January couture shows because we are in the midsummer lull before the steam train heads full force into awards season 2019 starting with the fall film festivals. One front row that usually has a great set of celebs turn out is the Armani Prive show and I am hoping that this seasons show’s front row is chock full of some of the biggest stars of film, music, and fashion. Cate Blanchett is the face of the Armani fragrance Si and has always been a loyal friend to the house. She has won both of her Oscars in Armani Prive and just wore two Armani Prive gowns during her run as the Madame Le President of the 2018 Cannes Film Festival jury. She has recently be re-wearing some of her most fabulous looks including her 2014 Golden Globes gown for the Cannes opening ceremony. There are definitely many looks that I think that Cate could bring out of the back of her closet to wear for this front row, but I picked another look off the most recent runway for her to rock next Tuesday. I would love to see Cate snatch up this blue crocodile leather blazer from the Armani Prive Spring 2018 Couture collection paired with a white hard cuff button down shirt and a pair of navy and grey tapered wool pants. This is definitely a look that I feel Cate could wear for just about any more casual event that she could attend. The look is the perfect statement, but still classic at the same time. Easy waves, defined eyes, red lips, and a pair of black Aquazzura ‘Milano’ ankle strap pumps all would really ensure that this is classically glam moment. Dua Lipa is one of those rising style stars in music and in fashion. She rocked a bevy of great looks for the BRIT Awards earlier this year, including a custom Armani Prive gown. I would love to see Dua bring some youthful glam to the front row at her first couture show. That is exactly what would happen if she stepped out wearing this black Armani Prive Spring 2018 Couture one shoulder romper which features iridescent crystal beaded pinstriping detail throughout. This is that fun youthful moment that seamed to flow heavily through the Armani Prive Spring 2018 Couture collection and I definitely think that for her first ever front row that this would be a perfect moment for Dua. The glamour of this look would be kept even more youthful and statement making pairing this look with a chic updo, defined eyes, pink lips, and a pair of statement black Sophia Webster ‘Glacia’ multicolored crystal embellished sandals.Ever since Marion Cotillard was released from her Dior contract last year she has been experimenting with her style and with all kinds of designers. After Cannes I have this feeling that she will end up signing a contract with Chanel. I don’t want to see her bogged down by a brand ambassadorship again. I want to see her continue to play with brands and give all kinds of different looks on the red carpet. She did make the rounds back in January taking in several couture shows and Armani Prive was one of them. Her front row style was incredibly lacking so I want to see her go back and give some really major moments on the front rows. I feel like she would shut down the front row wearing this navy printed and embellished Armani Prive Spring 2018 Couture mini dress which features an origami draped asymmetrical satin bodice and an embellished bubble hem skirt. It is definitely a fun, flirty, and feminine moment. It might be wasted as a front row look, but I definitely think that if anyone could make it really work it would be Marion. I would style this look with a chic updo, defined eyes, nude lips, and black lace Gianvito Rossi ‘Halle’ ankle cuff sandals to really make it a perfect front row moment for the French beauty. Nicole Kidman usually takes in the Armani Prive collections in January and since she is probably going to be hunting for an Emmy gown to come back as a presenter this year I said why not jet off from the set of Big Little Lies to take in this presentation in Paris. I have been in love with this black Armani Prive Spring 2018 Couture sleeveless pencil dress which features multi tone blue 3D floral embellishments, sheer yoke, and a bellow the knee hem since it was presented back in January. I was expecting to see this look at an event like the Academy Award nominees luncheon or a Cannes Film Festival photocall, but here we are and this dress still hasn’t been worn. I totally think that Nicole would be the perfect person to snatch this dress off the runway and make it a chic front row moment. The dress is chic a chic classic moment and I think that if Nicole paired this dress with a sleek center parted hairstyle, defined eyes, light pink lips, and black satin Sergio Rossi ‘Godiva’ pumps that she would totally be able to hold her own on this front row. Picking Sara Sampaio to sit front row at this show could go one of three ways. 1) She could get all dolled up and own the front row at the Armani Prive Fall 2018 Couture presentation. 2) She could not show up at all. 3) She could skip the front row and walk the runway. I would be happy to see her front row or on the runway for sure. If she does perch herself front row I would love to see her do so wearing this pink Armani Prive Spring 2018 Couture ensemble which features a sequin embellished batwing jacket and a pair of matching magenta silk shorts. It is a fun and flirty look and I definitely think that if anyone could sell this look to me it would be a Victoria’s Secret supermodel. I think that with a pair of matching pink Tom Ford PVC embellished peep toe slingback sandals, sleek low bun, defined eyes, and rose pink lips that this look would be head to toe glamour.
