Wow, I think the Lanvin for H&M collection is a favorite collaboration amongst celebrities so far, especially in Hong Kong. I’ve previously reported that Hong Kong A-list celebs Sammi Cheng, Maggie Cheung, Michelle Reis and Louis Koo rockin’ the collection, here’s more to add to the list! Besides Leighton Meester I haven’t seen any other celebrity outside of Asia wear the collection, so I was happy to see Natalie Portman wearing the one shoulder dress to IFP’s 20th Annual Gotham Independent Film Awards in NYC yesterday. Other Hong Kong A-lists seen in the collection are Carina Lau (劉嘉玲), Gigi Leung (梁詠琪), Sandra Ng (吳君如), Hilary Tsui (徐濠縈), Pace Wu (吳佩慈), Michele Reis (李嘉欣) and Wyman Wong (黃偉文).
I wish there were better pics. Who do you think looked the best? More pics after the jump…

I finally got a hold of my pictures from the Lanvin for H&M “Haute Couture” fashion show at Pierre Hotel from YM. I got there about 10 minutes before the show started so I didn’t get a chance to take much pictures. At first I was thinking of dressing up but then I thought about the shopping frenzy after the fashion show so I decided to dress comfortable instead. For the special occasion I decided to rock out a pair of stunners, the Lanvin Strass Square Oversized Acetate Frame with Swarovski Crystals Sunglasses from ILORI. They are so amazing! Like I said before, the fashion show was amazing and the runway was beautifully decked with flowers…it was simply magical. Loved every bit of it.
I was a bit stressed from the shopping event since guests were only allowed to buy 7-pieces, I decided to go for the shoes and accessories since I’ve got my fave short faux fur jacket from H&M already. It was a hard decision but after shopping I got to meet Alber Elbaz and he signed my invitation- he’s such a cutie! Many thanks to H&M for everything, it was an amazing night!

For those that live in the US and Canada, the Lanvin for H&M collection has pretty much sold out the day of the launch, November 20th. But for others in the rest of the world the collection doesn’t launch until November 23rd, I’m curious to see how the turn out will be. I was told that the Hong Kong Central store has people lining up since last night (US time) already, dedication! I’d like to see pics, I know Asian countries tend to go a bit wild on collaborations ha! If you live in HK, will you be lining up?
Got an email earlier this morning with two more A-list Hong Kong celebs rockin’ Lanvin for H&M, it’s fresh to see a guy wearing it this around. One of my fave HK actors and hottie Louis Koo was seen wearing 3 pieces from the collection for a TV interview on Saturday; a cardigan ($69.95), a button down shirt ($49.95) and blazer ($49.95). The other is Miss Hong Kong and actress Michelle Reis wearing the black zebra trench coat ($199) on Friday.

It’s all about LANVIN ♥ H&M until the collection launches on Saturday, November 20th haha. In case you missed my tweet earlier this morning, I partnered with H&M to support this exclusive Lanvin for H&M haute couture one shoulder yellow ruffle dress that hit the runway last night for the benefit of UNICEF. There are only 25 garments re-crafted for the runway show (pictures + video) and will available for purchase via bidding on their auction microsite. Alber Elbaz has also thrown in 5 original and signed sketches of the collection that are to be auctioned off to further benefit UNICEF. The bids are not super high yet but the auction ends on November 26th, so I’ll be curious how much these dresses and sketches will go for.
Check out the sketches and haute couture dresses, and bid on the dress that is supported by nitro:licious!

Last night the Lanvin for H&M “Haute Couture” Fashion Show took place at The Pierre Hotel, the runway was so beautiful! I was lucky enough to be invited to the show followed by a shopping event. It’s definitely the most anticipated collaboration of the year, the collection is absolutely stunning. Lots of surprises on the runway, Anna Dello Russo strutted down with a poodle, Dree Hemingway and Pixie Geldof came out together wearing suits, Lindsey Wixson decked out like a magician, a bride takes her stroll and Alber Elbaz is too cute for words, lots and lots of fun looks! I loved the fashion show! If you didn’t score an invite, don’t worry here are all the images from the fashion show! Stay tuned for the video from the fashion show…
And as I predicted there’s tons of Lanvin for H&M pieces on eBay already, nuts…
