Yea, Nay, or Eh: The Drape Donners
Last night was a pretty shining moment for newish Vionnet designer Rodolfo Paglialunga. Hilary Swank wore a jade green gown from Resort 2010 to the New York premiere of Amelia, and adorable girl-of-the-moment Carey Mulligan wore a Bordeaux dress from the same collection to the London premiere of her Oscar buzz-worthy film An Education. Though we’re not sure about the nude pump, we prefer Mulligan’s shorter take on the classic Grecian draping—and the quirky addition of a gold floral brooch. But that’s a minor quibble. Both are pretty bullet-proof red-carpet moments. With awards season imminently looming, we could be seeing more Vionnet credits on all kinds of actresses. What do you think of Carey and Hilary’s Grecian formula?
