Fashion Fund-ers Connect With The Hollywood Set

-------


The CFDA and Vogue assembled a starry crowd for a Fashion Fund fashion show sponsored by Frédéric Fekkai at the Chateau Marmont on Friday afternoon. Diane Kruger, M.I.A., Jessica Alba, and Camilla Belle all gathered in the hotel’s secluded courtyard to take in looks from contenders for the annual prize like Sophie Theallet, Gary Graham, and Ohne Titel’s Flora Gill and Alexa Adams. “I am so inspired right now and saw so many things that I want,” Eva Mendes told us. “I have an eye for design, but making clothes has never interested me—I leave that to the real professionals.” Like newly minted CFDA member and front-row mate Mary-Kate Olsen? The Fashion Fund winner will be announced two weeks from today, at a ceremony on November 16.

Sheer Bliss?

Some of fashion’s most forward females—Madonna, Diane Kruger, Mélanie Laurent, and Lisa Airan—seem to be wishing summer away. Either that, or celebrating their inner goth. In place of summer whites or floaty boho prints, they’re going with Sicilian black, thank you very much. Laurent’s halter and Madonna’s hat do add a seasonal touch, but we can only conjecture that Kruger and Airan’s long sleeves are a modish form of sunblock.

Yea, Nay, Or Eh: Agyness Deyn’s One-Two Punch

-------


It’s been a slow month party-wise in New York City. Maybe that’s why a few members of the social set pulled out floor-grazing frocks for the Cinema Society’s Inglourious Basterds screening and Standard Hotel after-party last night (click here for a slideshow). We say it’s never a good idea to outshine the guests of honor, and even at the film’s L.A. premiere last week, Diane Kruger and Angelina Jolie went cocktail length or shorter. Which is why we think Agyness Deyn‘s tee and high-waisted black leather skirt combo strikes just the right note. The fact that it’s a Rocky Horror Picture Show T-shirt and the movie in question was Quentin Tarantino’s exceedingly bloody revenge tale proves the platinum-blonde pixie has style and a sense of humor. What do you think?

Yea, Nay, or Eh: Rachel McAdams, Overexposed?

-------

OK, we know it’s the dog days of summer, but how much skin do you really need to show to be in? Earlier this week, Diane Kruger came close to exposing her derriere in a dramatic Atelier Versace number, and last night, at the New York premiere ofThe Time Traveler’s Wife, Rachel McAdams’ white jersey dress plunged almost down to her navel. We’re not big fans of frocks that require double-stick tape, but what do you think? Is McAdams overdoing it or just secure in her own skin?

Yea, Nay, Or Eh: Jolie Vs. Kruger

-------

Diane Kruger has been working the red carpet for a solid three months in support of Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds. Angelina Jolie, whose husband, Brad Pitt, plays the lead, shows up for only the big-ticket events—Cannes in May and L.A. yesterday at the film’s West Coast premiere. Their choices last night were another interesting study in contrasts. Kruger’s spangled Atelier Versace, with its bold shoulders and plunging keyhole back, was the dress of a fashion adventuress; you don’t have to study her press junket pics to see that she obviously loves clothes. Jolie’s strapless black leather Michael Kors number, on the other hand, was decidedly more minimalist. Not in the least understated, but the choice of a woman who’s always depended more on her pillow lips and other pneumatic gifts than on fashion for red-carpet impact. Whose dress do you like better?
