Runway to Red Carpet: High-Wattage Gowns and a Racy Duet
Over the past few days, mega-starlets have walked red carpets in a multiplicity of wares from fashion’s heaviest hitters—an A+-list week, if we’ve ever seen one.
Last Thursday evening, Tilda Swinton attended the opening of Chanel’s Little Black Jacket exhibition in Shanghai. Draped in an all-white and finitely textured dress from the house’s Resort ’14 lineup, Swinton was spookily ethereal as ever.
On Monday, Sarah Jessica Parker (above, center) headed to the premiere of London’s new Charlie and the Chocolate Factory musical, donning a twinkling Marc Jacobs Resort ’14 dress. Also in the Big Smoke this week: Natalia Vodianova—resplendent in a Stella McCartney lamé, long-sleeve column, with a wooden clutch from the designer’s Fall ’13 collection, at the Saatchi Gallery’s Arts for Life charity auction (which Ms. Vodianova hosted along with Nadja Swarovski and Susan Hayden).
Stateside on Tuesday, Maggie Gyllenhaal (above, left) wore a Christian Dior Fall ’13 number to the premiere of White House Down in New York. The outfit—with its scrunchy peplum waist, scalloped bustier, and interlocking Deco-tinged skirt—balanced Dior’s Old Hollywood glamour with Raf Simons’ architectural flare. Out West in Los Angeles a few hours later, Naomi Watts arrived at the premiere of Ray Donovan in an eyebrow-raising Pre-Fall ’13 Alexander McQueen leather minidress. The bold frock, complete with a teardrop neckline, was definitely racier than the actress’s usual sartorial choices. And finally, back in London Town Wednesday night, another Naomi opted for an edgy option. At the L’Wren Scott-hosted Serpentine Gallery party, Ms. Campbell (above, right) was seen touting a David Koma Fall ’13 mini—complete with sheer shoulders, a banded waist and hem, and athletic sleeves.
