Runway to Red Carpet: An Ongoing Fairy Tale and a Newcomer Worth Watching

-------

Natalie Portman Shanghai International Film FestivalThe glamour squad was out in full force on this week’s red carpets. The leading ladies of Maleficent continued to take sartorial cues from their characters at the film’s premiere in Tokyo. Elle Fanning donned an ivory Fall ’14 Alexander McQueen gown fit for a princess, while Angelina Jolie stepped out in a black, figure-hugging custom black velvet Atelier Versace cocktail dress.

As you are by now well aware, Beyoncé and Jay Z kicked off their highly anticipated On the Run tour on Wednesday, and per the usual, the couple’s custom costumes come courtesy of top designers, including Elie Saab, Givenchy, Diesel’s Nicola Formichetti, and Tom Ford. Queen Bey sizzled in her opening outfit, a plunging black Atelier Versace bodysuit with black sequined netting.

Meanwhile, in Shanghai, stars were dressed to the nines for the International Film Festival’s closing events on Sunday. Natalie Portman chose a black silk gown with a printed bodice fresh from Dior’s Resort ’15 runway for the occasion. Earlier in the day, Nicola Peltz walked the red carpet in a white silk and lace Giambattista Valli Fall ’13 Haute Couture gown at the premiere of Transformers: Age of Extinction. The Hollywood rookie flew onto our radar this week as she attended press events in wares by mega designers including Dolce & Gabbana, Balenciaga, Saint Laurent, and Stella McCartney, to name a few. We’ll be keeping our eyes on this one.

Here, more of this week’s red-carpet highlights.

Runway to Red Carpet: The Stars Shine Post-Cannes and Miley Covers Up

-------

Elle FanningFor the past two weeks, all eyes have been glued on the red carpets of the Cannes Film Festival, but the post-Cannes fashion has been packed with well-dressed Hollywood elite, too. On Tuesday, A Million Ways to Die in the West costars Amanda Seyfried and Charlize Theron kicked off their press tour across the pond with a photo call in London. The duo posed in a pair of LBDs—Seyfried chose a gold-embroidered Pre-Fall ’14 Alexander McQueen mini, while Theron opted for a Stella McCartney frock with exaggerated sleeves.

On Wednesday, the leading ladies of Maleficent looked to their characters for sartorial inspiration. At the film’s world premiere in Hollywood, leading villainess Angelina Jolie stepped out in a black Atelier Versace ball gown, while Elle Fanning looked every part the princess in a lilac beaded Elie Saab Spring ’14 Haute Couture gown.

In a rare move, Miley Cyrus chose a conservative and—dare we say it—sophisticated ball gown for a performance during the World Music Awards in Monte Carlo, Monaco. Her Giambattista Valli Fall ’12 Haute Couture was covered in delicate flowers, another unlikely move for the sassy songstress. If you’re like us and are hoping this is a sign of a new leaf for Miley, don’t count on it—she was back to her scantily clad, tongue-wagging self during a concert the next day.

Elle fanningAlthough many A-listers spent the week partying it up New York style while in town for Monday night’s Met gala, it was still work as usual for some. The cast of Maleficent began their press tour overseas, kicking things off with a photo call in Paris on Monday. Elle Fanning stepped out in a moss-green Valentino Pre-Fall ’14 frock, appropriately paired with Charlotte Olympia’s Sleeping Beauty pumps adorned with the sinister villain’s face. On Thursday, things moved to London for a private reception at Kensington Palace. Leading lady Angelina Jolie turned up in a plunging crystal-covered Atelier Versace gown in her signature color, black.

Stateside, Elizabeth Olsen kicked off the premiere tour for Godzilla on Thursday, donning a black Chloé Fall ’14 gown for the Hollywood premiere. Earlier in the week, Marion Cotillard took to the red carpet in a Mary Katrantzou Fall ’14 frock patchworked with signs and symbols at the premiere of The Immigrant in New York.

On Saturday, a bevy of Hollywood notables flocked to Washington, D.C., for the 100th Annual White House Correspondents’ Association dinner, donning designer duds for a turn on the red carpet. Lupita Nyong’o was (obviously) among the best dressed, stepping out in a black Oscar de la Renta Fall ’14 gown with a white polka-dot peplum top.

Lupita Nyong’o Named World’s Most Beautiful

-------

2014 MTV Movie Awards - ArrivalsLupita Nyong’o has a growing awards collection (including an Oscar), but she “never dreamed” she would be named People magazine’s Most Beautiful Person. The 12 Years a Slave star and Lancôme spokeswoman appears on this month’s cover with her trademark cropped hair, a sparkly necklace, and her perpetual smile. “I was happy for all the girls who would see me on [it] and feel a little more seen,” she told People. Growing up, her idea of beauty was “light skin and long, flowing, straight hair…Subconsciously you start to appreciate those things more than what you possess.” Now her natural beauty is not only celebrated but further enhanced by her innate elegance, humility, and originality. Nyong’o joins an impressive roster of past winners including Julia Roberts, Beyoncé, Jennifer Aniston, Halle Berry, and Angelina Jolie.
