Runway to Red Carpet: And the Award for Most Glamorous Nominee Goes To…

-------

Rooney MaraWith the SAG Award and Golden Globe nominations announced this week, award season is nigh. Between galas, film festivals, and worldwide promo tours for their nominated films, this year’s well-dressed contenders have been pulling out all the sartorial stops. SAG Award and Golden Globe nominee (and this week’s Beauty Essentials spotlight) Cate Blanchett stepped out in a strapless black Spring ’14 Givenchy jumpsuit with a loose, draped bodice at the For the Love of Cinema – IWC Gulf Filmmaker Award ceremony during the Dubai International Film Festival on Saturday. Amy Adams, who is also up for a Best Actress Golden Globe, chose a black Elie Saab Spring ’14 shift with sheer lace panels for the New York premiere of her film American Hustle, which received a Globe nomination of its own.

Rooney Mara, whose film Her is up for a Best Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy, Golden Globe, attended the Oxfam Charity gala during the Dubai Film Festival in a custom white one-shouldered Lanvin gown with a sculptured peplum-like detail on the bodice from the Resort ’14 collection. The same day, SAG Award nominee Claire Danes hosted the Nobel Peace Prize concert in Oslo, Norway, in an embroidered white linen Valentino Resort ’14 gown.

Hollywood newcomer Lupita Nyong’o received a Best Supporting Actress Golden Globe nom for her very first role in a full-length film, 12 Years a Slave, and has been topping best-dressed lists nearly every week of the press tour. On Wednesday, she took to the red carpet at the film’s Paris premiere in a sleeveless red sequined cocktail dress with sheer cutouts from Elie Saab’s Resort ’14 collection. With the bar set high early in her career, we’re excited to see what the future holds for this rising star.

No doubt, it’s a tight race for the title of most glamorous award hopeful. Who do you think deserves the honor? Click through all of this week’s red-carpet highlights, here.

Runway to Red Carpet: Athletic Influence and Award-Worthy Style

-------

Diane KrugerFor Hollywood’s TV elite, this weekend was filled with Emmy Award-related activities, from primping and preening to up-all-night after-parties to the actual awards ceremony. Those of us not lucky enough to attend spent Sunday night glued to our TVs and computers to catch all of the action. While there were many stunning frocks on the red carpet, we spotted several equally chic looks on the pre- and post-party circuit, too. Kiernan Shipka, who has proven her fashion chops at a young age, chose a playful two-toned Delpozo dress with structured pleats for a Friday night pre-Emmy fete. Meanwhile, on Saturday evening, Claire Danes attended Showtime’s Emmy Eve soiree in a black strapless fit-and-flare dress with white butterfly appliqués from Lanvin’s Fall ’13 runway. The Homeland star brought home the trophy for lead actress in a drama series the following night.

Over in China, a handful of stars bypassed the Emmys to support the new Qingdao Oriental Movie Metropolis, which is one Chinese businessman’s attempt to create a cinema city that rivals Hollywood. Both Kate Beckinsale and Nicole Kidman donned on-trend black-and-white ensembles to the groundbreaking ceremony on Sunday. Kidman topped a sheer black blouse and sleek black pants with a white blazer, all from Saint Laurent. Beckinsale went with a classic sixties look, choosing a white tweed Oscar de la Renta dress accented with black around the waist. She finished it off with cherry-red heels and a high bouffant updo.

As life in New York continued post-fashion week, the Metropolitan Opera opened its season on Monday with Eugene Onegin. Hollywood stars such as Heather Graham and Diane Kruger wore stunning gowns on opening night; the latter chose a color-blocked dress made of silk duchesse satin from Prabal Gurung’s Resort ’14 collection. With sportswear influencing many of Spring ’14′s collections, this floor-grazing number with clean, athletic lines was a home run.

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

Scandal, Horror, and Lots of Dirty Politicians Take the 2013 Emmy Nominations

-------

Kerry Washington at the 2012 Emmy AwardsAfter hearing this morning’s announcement of the 2013 Emmy nominations, it seems that little has changed in TV land since 2012. After a somewhat controversial second season, Girls is still going strong, and the ever-trendy Game of Thrones, 30 Rock, Breaking Bad, and Louie all earned mentions, too. Unsurprisingly, Emmy veterans Mad Men, Downton Abbey, and Homeland were all nominated once (or twice, or five times) again. Other notable nods went to funny women Jane Lynch for Glee, Julia Louis-Dreyfus for Veep, and Amy Poehler for Parks and Recreation.

Newcomers included juicy dramas Scandal and Nashville, but the only real surprise was the Netflix series House of Cards. The political saga earned nine nominations, including Best Drama Series, and marks the first time the Emmys have included an online-only program.

In terms of quantity, American Horror Story: Asylum tops the list with nominations in seventeen categories. But the more-is-more game has a few other players: Saturday Night Live earned a hearty fifteen nominations, as did HBO’s Liberace biopic Behind the Candelabra. The film’s Michael Douglas and Matt Damon were each nominated for Best Actor in a Miniseries or Movie, and Steven Soderbergh is up for Best Director. Of course, we’ll be keeping our eyes on the red carpet to see what stars like Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series nominee Kerry Washington (left), Tina Fey, Claire Danes, and Kiernan Shipka don to the awards on September 22, and we’re also eager to hear who takes the win for best costumes—crowd favorites like Boardwalk Empire, Game of Thrones, and Downton Abbey are all vying for the prize. See a list of the big nominees, below.

Yea, Nay, Or Eh: Claire Danes, In The Pink?

-------

Claire Danes hit Rome this week for the Roma Fiction Film Festival, where she picked up an award for her new film Temple Grandin. We’re not sure she’d win the same award for her Valentino Couture dress. The contrast pink and lavender paneling, especially with the bold shot of green, picks up on the color-block trend we’re seeing, and Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli’s Couture collections for the house have been red-carpet staples, but Danes looks a little lost in her outfit. Or do you like her venture into edgier territory? What do you think—yea, nay, or eh?

Proudly Not Made In America

Khaki and olive drab, military overcoats and aviator jackets, combat boots and cargo pants: The Fall ’10 shows are chockablock with soldier style. But Farah Malik and Dana Arbib are bringing fashion literally into the war zone. The two founders of A Peace Treaty have set up production in Afghanistan, where they’re working with the nonprofit Afghan Hands to produce hand-embroidered scarves and—soon to come—a range of bags. Last night, at a dinner for the brand hosted by Claire Danes, Afghan Hands founder Matin Maulawizada (pictured, right, with Danes, Malik, and Arbib, all wearing A Peace Treaty) acknowledged that there are dangers to working in the battle-scarred country, but added that the benefits outweigh the risks. “We’ve got women there, whose husbands killed each other, and they’re working together, laughing and gossiping, and their children are growing up side by side,” Maulawizada explained over helpings of hummus and couscous at the Jane Hotel outpost of Café Gitane. “Even if I weren’t already an optimist, that would make me optimistic.” Arbib, meanwhile, noted that her and Malik’s reasons for producing in Afghanistan are only partly idealistic. “We look for places where there’s a tradition of doing the kind of work we want to do,” she said. “Afghan women have a history with embroidery. But we’ve got a whole range of knits—knit scarves and capes and ponchos—that we’re going to be making in Bolivia, because they really excel at knitwear.”
