Where Cara goes, the cameras follow. But we’re not just talking about the paps. Following her silver-screen debut in Anna Karenina, the overly animated supe nabbed a role in Joe Wright’s adaptation of Peter Pan. Somewhere in between shooting campaigns, singing, drumming, catwalking, and capturing it all on social media, Delevingne has scooped up yet another on-screen gig, in Tim Firth’s Timeless. Get an eyeful of her acting chops in the clip above.
An online-only shop was something the brand Prism quickly grew out of, according to its creative director, Anna Laub. “A lot of our clients would look up the address online and just drop by unannounced, wanting to try stuff on, and had no idea they were coming to the head office. We realized pretty quickly that we needed a brick-and-mortar shop, especially since the fit for eyewear and swimsuits is so precise.”
Laub’s new shop on Marylebone’s Chiltern Street (handily, across the street from André Balazs’ celebrity haunt Chiltern Firehouse) houses a collection of swimwear, glasses, espadrilles, and—new to the line—cover-ups, all designed for the urban girl going on holiday. “In department stores, usually sunglasses, swimwear, and shoes are over the place, so it’s hard to try to get the whole look together,” explained Laub. “It was really important for us to be able to deliver the full package, under one roof, without having to ask our clients to run around.”
Hailey Baldwin, Sara Cox, and Martha Ward joined Laub in store to celebrate the opening, and all later decamped to the Firehouse, where Cara Delevingne, Rita Ora, David Beckham, Aaron Paul, and more mingled in. But the buzz was less on celebrity than the shop, a minimalist masterpiece courtesy of designer Roger Storey and architect Richard Bennett. “The unobtrusive decor lets the items do all the talking,” said Laub. “And that’s exactly the philosophy of the brand: to enhance a personality, not overpower it.”
Prism’s new store is located at 54 Chiltern Street, London.
Between last Monday’s Met ball, Spring gala season, and the 67th annual Cannes Film Festival (which officially kicked off yesterday), eveningwear has been at the top of our minds lately. But with all due respect to Charles James and the starlets who aimed to honor his legacy by donning Gone With the Wind-style gowns at the Costume Institute extravaganza, we’ve definitely had our fill of dramatic ball skirts. If there’s one thing we’d like to see more of on the Croisette this year, it’s actresses wearing pants. In our opinion, the coolest girls at red-carpet events are the ones rocking stovepipe trousers with tiny tops or sleek le smokings. Take, as examples, Cara Delevingne’s relatively casual Stella McCartney look at the Met or the crisp white Saint Laurent suit that Gia Coppola wore to her Palo Alto premiere. Standing next to one of them in a poufy dress would make almost anyone feel fussy by comparison.
Designers seem to be championing new eveningwear alternatives, too. Raf Simons’ recent Cruise show for Dior opened with a number of dressy pant looks. And we can’t get enough of the snazzy top-and-trouser combos spotted in the Fall ’14 collections of Joseph Altuzarra, Narciso Rodriguez, and newcomers like Rosie Assoulin, Maki Oh, and Isa Arfen. Considering these convincing options, we’re hoping celebrity stylists decide to take a chance on pants.
