Runway to Red Carpet: Summer Motifs and Bright Whites-------
Stars were in a sunny state of mind this week, with highlights consisting of summery motifs and fresh hues. Kiernan Shipka set the tone in a pale pink peplum Marni dress with jeweled embellishments at the Much Music Video Awards in Toronto on Sunday.
Gowns on Thursday’s Critics’ Choice Television Awards red carpet were literal interpretations of the summertime theme. Lizzy Caplan stepped out in Valentino’s Pre-Fall ’14 gown decked with colorful butterflies, while Diane Kruger chose a floral Elie Saab Spring ’14 Haute Couture number. Chloë Grace Moretz went for a less obvious form of florals, donning a black-and-white frock printed with a wire-frame digital 3-D image of a flower from Christopher Kane’s Resort ’14 science-inspired lineup at Coach’s summer party on Tuesday in New York.
Fresh summer white also seemed to be a theme this week, with several notables choosing the color for a variety of events. Michelle Dockery selected a plunging Antonio Berardi sheath for the Cartier Queen’s Cup polo final in Windsor, U.K., while recent French Open champ Maria Sharapova opted for a croc-stamped, double-breasted sheath from Antonio Berardi’s Spring ’14 runway for the WTA Pre-Wimbledon Party in London. Natalie Portman also went for the trend, choosing a silk number with a cotton basque from Dior’s latest Resort ’15 runway for the Miss Dior exhibition opening in Shanghai.
