Runway to Red Carpet: Dress Hems Are on the Rise

-------

RihannaDespite the fact that it snowed in New York this week, the red carpet was full of summer vibes. Winter coats returned on the East Coast, and in Hollywood, short hemlines and light colors flourished for a bevy of parties, premieres, and award shows.

On Tuesday, Chloë Grace Moretz attended the opening night celebration of The Library in New York in an ecru lace frock with a black yolk from the Carven Pre-Fall ’14 lineup. The same night, another one of our favorite A-list teens, Kiernan Shipka, stepped out in a white, yellow, and gray patterned Preen dress for Jimmy Choo’s Choo.08 launch party in L.A.

With the premiere tour for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 officially underway, Emma Stone spent a lot of time on the red carpet this week. She stuck to a similar color palette for her Berlin appearances on Tuesday, choosing a light blue Erdem Fall ’14 frock dotted with red beading for the photo call and a Chanel Pre-Fall ’14 dress with a pale lavender skirt and red-striped bodice for the premiere that evening.

In case you were missing all that awards season glamour, Sunday’s MTV Movie Awards brought it back with a summery twist. Ellie Goulding walked the red carpet in a white Emporio Armani dress with cutouts on the sides, while Lupita Nyong’o opted for a gray Chanel Fall ’14 dress speckled with colorful geometrics. Rihanna strayed from the red-carpet norm, turning up in a beige corseted bodysuit and a pink silk robe from Ulyana Sergeenko’s Spring ’14 Haute Couture that took the leg-baring trend to a new level. Your move, Angelina.

Playlist: Ellie Goulding’s Best Songs

-------

elliepostBritish-born singer Ellie Goulding has some big news.

Sure, her debut album, Lights, went triple platinum when it hit the U.S. in 2010. And yes, the singer-songwriter won the hearts of her bourgeoning international audience when she performed a chilling cover of Elton John’s “Your Song” at the wedding reception of Prince William and Kate Middleton in 2011—a rendition that was heard stateside when Goulding appeared on NBC’s SNL. In 2013, she took home an MTV Movie Award for Best Song of the Summer, for the Calvin Harris-produced track “I Need Your Love,” then recorded an exclusive track, “Mirror,” for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

But today Ellie Goulding joins Style.com’s Style Map, a network of contributors from around the blogosphere, and we are honored to have her. To celebrate her new gig, here are our ten favorite Ellie songs.

Runway to Red Carpet: The Celeb Circuit Steps Out for Two Blockbuster Press Tours

-------

Shailene Woodley While much of the Hollywood set tends to enjoy a little break after the awards season finale, the stars of March’s blockbusters have been busy promoting their high-profile flicks. The A-list stars of the biblical epic Noah have been trotting around the world promoting the film, and the picture’s leading ladies have been continually knocking it out of the sartorial ballpark at each premiere. In Madrid, Jennifer Connelly chose a nude Giambattista Valli Spring ’14 Haute Couture frock embroidered with pale leaves and a crystal neckline. Her equally chic costar Emma Watson opted for a black-and-white J. Mendel ensemble, featuring a draped white blouse and tapered black pants fresh off the Fall ’14 runway.

Stateside, the stars of the buzzed-about Divergent have had a busy premiere week of their own. Shailene Woodley, the film’s heroine and a rapidly rising star, stepped out in a black figure-hugging jumpsuit with a sheer detailed bodice from Elie Saab’s Pre-Fall ’13 lineup for a screening in New York on Thursday. In true Hollywood fashion, a bevy of notables turned up for the film’s world premiere in Los Angeles on Tuesday, including Kiernan Shipka, Ellie Goulding, and Zoe Kravitz. Shipka attended the L.A. premiere of Divergent in Valentino’s tulle frock covered with armor-like patchwork from the Spring ’14 runway, while Kravitz turned up in a white off-the-shoulder frock from BFF Alexander Wang’s Spring ’14 Balenciaga collection.

Toasting New York’s Night Owls

-------

Last night, scenemakers and 24-hour party people descended upon Webster Hall to toast Manhattan clubland’s most hip at Paper magazine’s Eighth Annual Nightlife Awards. “For a while, New York was just a bunch of the same hipsters hanging out at one place,” said Matt Kliegman (of The Jane Ballroom and The Smile), whose downtown hot spot Westway took home Best Party award for its Tuesday night fête Westgay at Westway. “Right now, New York feels more exciting.”

Inside the disco ball-festooned ballroom, nightlife impresarios like Nur Khan and Ben Pundole sipped Hennessy with the likes of Cynthia Rowley, Samantha Ronson, Cory Kennedy (pictured), and Chelsea Leyland. Winners of the night? Best Arty Party (The Hole), Best Club (Le Baron), and Best Restaurant with Nightlife Scene (Acme). Riffing on the eccentric categories (Best Social Media Nightlife Star, anyone?), presenter Sarah Sophie Flicker conceived her own award idea. “I would love to see old-fashioned dinner theater,” the Citizens Band maven mused. “I know it economically makes no sense, but I just want to dress up in a long dress and hear beautiful music.” Meanwhile, model Jessica White was miffed Richie Akiva and her preferred playpen 1-Oak got snubbed. “He’s known me since I was 17,” the 28-year-old Sports Illustrated model said. “We’re planning a big Halloween party.” Still, not everyone on hand was a self-professed night owl. “My nightlife is more about Netflix streaming,” Girls actor Alex Karpovsky deadpanned before dashing out to the premiere of his flick Gayby.

Following the ceremony and a 15-minute delay, which prompted Paper‘s David Hershkovits to break out into dance à la South Korean rapper Psy’s “Gangnam Style,” Ellie Goulding took to the stage to perform while her boyfriend, DJ Skrillex, looked on. A couple made in nightlife heaven? Hardly. “In New York it’s all about work,” the Brit pop star told Style.com backstage. “And when I’m home in London, I’ll most likely just go to the pub.”
