Runway to Red Carpet: Glittering Lips and the Couture Treatment-------
While the red-carpet circuit began with a slow start over the weekend, the premieres and parties kicked into overdrive as the week continued. Thor: The Dark World‘s leading lady, Natalie Portman, was a vision in white at the film’s Berlin premiere on Sunday, walking the red carpet in a strapless Christian Dior haute couture gown with a full skirt accented with a black ribbon around the waist. On Tuesday evening, Diane Kruger also opted for a haute couture number, choosing a black sequined cocktail dress embroidered with florals from Chanel’s Haute Couture Spring ’13 runway at the brand’s Little Black Jacket event in Brazil.
As the premiere circuit continued into the week, Hailee Steinfeld donned a Saint Laurent ensemble straight from the Spring ’14 runway, pairing a white one-shoulder top covered in sequined red lips with tailored black pants at the Hollywood premiere of her film, Ender’s Game. The same evening, Kate Bosworth chose a black Christopher Kane gown accented with crystal flowers at the neckline and waist from the Spring ’14 collection for the New York premiere of her flick Big Sur. And Naomi Watts took to the red carpet at the New York premiere of Diana, in which she plays the title role, in a blue-and-white floor-grazing dress that was ruched at the waist below a keyhole cutout from Michael Kors’ Spring ’14 runway.
