Fergie Gets Glamorous at Chanel Show

07/03/2007 at 04:40 PM ET


Through a sea of Chanel umbrellas, I am escorted to my seat for the Haute Couture Autumn/Winter show in Paris. The scene is breathtaking, like a fairytale wedding with white drapes, beautiful statues and white gardenias blossoming from either side of the catwalk. But there is one slight snag — the rain is threatening to wash the gravel catwalk away completely. As staff tend to the puddle-ridden runway, Fergie takes her seat next to Vanessa Paradis (aka Johnny Depp’s better half) on the front row. And the show begins. . .skin tight leather trousers encrusted with gems, feather adorned sunglasses, ball gowns in pastel shades with sparkling trims, lace and feather creations. The scene was like something out of a modern day Cinderella meets Barberella. “It was so glamorous” Fergie tells me backstage after the show. “I loved the long sleeve dress with gold medallions on it. That’s the one I want but I’ll have to shorten it about five inches because I’m not as tall as the models.” The ‘Glamorous’ singer and her pals left the backstage area wielding goodie bags and, more importantly, inspiration: “I’m getting new ideas for my video, I’m very inspired,” she revealed before jumping into her waiting car.

I love Fergie, but I have to admit, I’m a tad envious of her….Her boyfriend is HOOOTTT!!!

Elda on

I just luv luv luv fergie, her dress and those hot shoes!!

Josie on

I love the outfit, especially the shoes! By who and where can I get them? Why she’s so serious? She looks like she doesn’t want to be there…

tracey on

I think she is tacky; I hate her style.
Gorgeous boyfriend and awesome body but horrible style.

Ingrid on

Fergie will never be glamourous, no matter how much her song says she is. I’ve always found she’s slightly bogan.

For a change, she doesn’t look like a hoochie.

Megan on

Joining the lollipop brigade, Ferg? Have a sammich. She’s too old to try and look like a trendy 20-something.

Tory on

Love the shoes, but can’t stand whose wearing them.

Lucia on

i dont really like the dress…i like Fergie’s style but i dont like this dress…her shoes are cute though…

Rebecca on

Fergie looks better here, but I never have liked her much. She’s got a great athletic figure, and a hot boyfriend, but that plastic face is just too ick. She claims not to have had surgery, but I’m not buying it!http://cityrag.blogs.com/main/2005/11/fergie_lies_lik.html

Actually, the chic behind Fergie is dressed more fashionably.

Darling woman, but will never be Chanel. Sorry, Fergs.

i love fergie…but whats up with her face?!…does anyone else think that her face looks really strange??…its almost like its all stretched out..her eyebrows are soo high up! and her eyes look huge…hhmm im not sure if its a good or bad thing…maybe she has had some work done?…or maybe she has lost weight?

k8 on

Fergie is lucky she has such a hot bod…her face isn’t especially attractive looking and she has the worst hair ever

Fergie can pull off everything and anything she puts on. She looks older and classier here, which adds a taste of distinction to her, especially if you are attending a DIOR show. Good for her! Can I get a hold of her DIOR goody bag?? I would kill for it! :)

Tory on

Hate the dress, love the shoes, wish she was talented.

Alice on

She almost looks decent here but it doesn’t make up for the fact that she is tacky and completely void of talent.

F on

i noticed the same thing “T” her face looks like she lost alot of weight. she is a beautiful women, love her body, but again i don’t understand why her face looks so different.she looks like a little girl. i don’t like the dress or shoes, to big for her little body.

alia on

T and F,
I think Fergie’s face possibly looks like that b/c she used to do crystal meth…and that tends to have a bad effect on someone’s looks…
…and Tory and Alice—I don’t even know if you’ve ever seen Fergie sing live, but she is amazing…her voice is one of a kind….and if she is not talented, I don’t know who is…..I wonder if you two can sing better than Fergie?…..Yeah, I doubt it…

I can’t really notice the dress, because of the angle, but from what I can see the dress looks pretty and I like the gold touch. I love her shoes too, the platform pumps are very trendy.

ree on

Yall no ima keep it real! Fergie, girl, umm umm um, just stop! NO NO NO NO! Where the heck is her stylist? She is tha bomb but this fit looks like someone bombed her. NO GO FERGIE! sorry!

lola on

I really don’t like Fergie’s style. The dress is wierd and unflattering, but the shoes are nice. I have a problem with Fergie’s shoes though; they’re always the same kind of very high-heeled glossy pump with a strap, only in different colors! And I think she’s a really mediocre singer w/ boring songs.

Vanillabear on

Theres only one word for her and her style: TACKY!!!
Ugly dress with what looks like fake gold diamonds. Love the shoes but I don’t like Fergie much.
