Look of the day – Chloe Sevigny, Gemma Chan, Annabelle Wallis & Elle McPherson get Springy

You know it’s Springtime when the pink prom dresses, floral print shifts and bare legs come out to play. It was impossible to pick one Look of the day today because each of the sartorial stars on our list took a different, but nonetheless fresh, approach to the season. 

British actress Annabelle Wallis was prom-dress prim, with a scraped back, centre-parted bun and a ballet-inspired, spaghetti-strapped, pink, silk summer dress, at the Jameson Empire Awards in London last night. I absolutely love that she matched her lipstick to her dress; the cobalt blue shoes and tiny hand held handbag are a winning combo, that shows matchy-matchy doesn’t have to look, matchy-matchy.

Chloe Sevigny gushed about Nicolas Ghesquiere‘s debut show for Louis Vuitton – which was so progressive and so cool- so it was no surprise when she rocked up to the Museum of Contemporary Art Gala in head-to-toe LV.
Giving her nude number a lift with a gold-plated black belt wrapped in a suitably utilitarian fashion, her scraped back bun and glossy red lips, make this look as fresh as it is.

Oh the hair. The cascading honey blonde curls. Damn you Elle McPherson, you are just not of this world! 
Elle, as always looked effortlessly hot and chic (it’s a tough combo), as she popped out on the town in London the other night. The supermodel oozed class in white tapered trousers, white kitten heel Louboutins, a textured white knit and a white woven clutch. Not only did she manage to co-ordinate her phone to her ensemble, but she appears to be make-up free. Just goes to show what great hair- and style- can do.

I don’t know why I love Gemma Chan, considering she has won Jack Whitehall’s heart, but her beauty can’t be denied. What I love most is she seems to just rock up to an event in whatever she wants to wear and always stand out.  Still pretty under-the-radar it’s nice that she’s doing her own thing. Chan’s bright orange-red lipstick lifts this Mulberry shift right out of the 60s, helped along the way by nude accessories.  My French friend gushed at Chan’s outfit. “She’s my favourite. I just love the nude bag and the bright colours of the dress. Oh and the shoes. It’s just so Spring.” Not only does my French pal have great taste, she’s French, so she must be right.
