Devon Aoki, a Lagerfeld muse-turned-actress (her new project, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Undead, is in post-production), looked every inch the leading lady in Alberta Ferretti and Chopard jewels at the Spring Fever premiere in Cannes last night. Makeup colors and soft pastels, like lilac, were big news for Spring and Resort. What do you think of lavender—does it work better for fragrances or fashion?
Sure, the red carpet glittered at last night’s Grammys with many of the usual suspects—Zuhair Murad, Alberta Ferretti, and Reem Acra, for example—but the real story was the names that had us heading for Google. Katy Perry turned heads in a strapless bubblegum pink confection with elaborate origami-like detail from designer Basil Soda (Paula Abdul also donned a dress by the Lebanese designer, though less successfully); while Brit-import Estelle stole the show from Kanye West in a futuristic frock by Kuala Lampur-based designer Bernard Chandran. Keeping things a little more local was Jordin Sparks, who turned to Arizonan Debra Davenport for her asymmetrical rose-printed gown. Will stylists follow suit and embrace the unknowns for the upcoming Oscars? Stay tuned.
Julia Roberts once called Aishwarya Rai Bachchan “the most beautiful woman in the world.” Yes, Ash (as the Bollywood-fluent world calls her) is that eyeball-spinningly gorgeous. Plus, her star power is like Julia, Angelina, Reese, Renée, and Halle all rolled into one subcontinental supernova. But let’s talk about Ash’s fashion. While her black chiffon Alberta Ferretti gown (worn to last night’s Pink Panther premiere) is inarguably flattering and pretty, it’s so safe that Ralph Nader himself would slap a stamp of approval on it. Here’s our case: When a star is that bewitchingly lovely and that A-list-y, is it wrong of us to want her to bring it a little when it comes to style? Maybe a little Balenciaga, Marc Jacobs, or Yves Saint Laurent? What do you think, Style Filers? Does Ash’s black Ferretti do her justice? Or would you, like us, want to see her in something unexpected and daring?
