Are These Pre-Fall Gowns Red-Carpet Material?


Red-carpet season kicks off this weekend with the 69th Annual Golden Globes. Since the nominations were announced before the holidays, we’ve been playing the matching game, pairing up actresses with dresses from the pre-fall collections. Or, in the case of Tilda Swinton, with a tuxedo—we like Stella McCartney‘s brocade two-piece for the We Need to Talk About Kevin star. Come Sunday night, we’ll be paying particularly close attention to Michelle Williams and Rooney Mara. The My Week With Marilyn actress would look smashing in Peter Copping’s plunge-front column for Nina Ricci (Monroe would no doubt approve). And we’re hoping to see the Dragon Tattoo nominee play against type—maybe the coral bow-front gown from Riccardo Tisci at Givenchy? Angelina Jolie’s directorial debut, In the Land of Blood and Honey, is up for Best Foreign Language Film, and you can bet plenty of designers have been vying to dress her. We think Prabal Gurung‘s long-sleeved emerald green charmeuse gown with the draped back and puddling train has her name all over it.

    All of these are gorgeous, but I’m not sure how many celebrities will be able to pull of the Giles look, but the Zac Posen number is gorgeous. I want to see Elle Fanning or Chloe Grace Moretz in the Lanvin puff dress.
