The Best Looks of the Week, According to Readers


061514_Look_Of_The_Day_Roundup_blogIn this week’s Look of the Day polls, we shared which trends are on our minds—then asked you to play favorites. On Monday, we called out the best asymmetrical looks from Resort ’15. Who would have guessed Stella McCartney, Reed Krakoff, and Proenza Schouler (among countless others) would all bring back the slashed hemline? McCartney’s winning look, a floaty cutout dress from her Elizabeth Street garden party, looked especially fresh with mixed prints and sky-high platforms. Later in the week, we dedicated Wednesday’s poll to our model of the moment, Jamie Bochert. No doubt you’re seeing her face everywhere these days, from The Line’s new lookbook to the CFDA Awards red carpet, where she stood out among a sea of ball gowns. Stella McCartney won again on Thursday for her well-executed paisley prints—though Emily Blunt’s vibrant Osman dress was a close second. And on Friday, we wished Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen a happy 28th birthday with a roundup of their best looks of late (which was no easy task). Their understated gowns at this year’s Charles James: Beyond Fashion Met Gala naturally took home first prize. Click here to see all of this week’s results, and be sure to check back every day to vote for our latest discoveries.

Salmon Fishing in NYC


If you think Emily Blunt gets steamy with co-star Ewan McGregor in Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, well, you’re wrong. “I didn’t have a sex scene with Ewan,” the actress told at the Cinema Society’s unveiling of the film in New York last night. “Oh, god, we just swam,” she clarified. And lo, the screening proved her right. Lasse Hallström’s romantic tale about making an unlikely pursuit succeed in an unusual place) is, in the end, more sweet than sweaty.

And the title is no metaphor. McGregor plays a persnickety government fisheries expert enlisted by an Arab sheikh (and his investment associate, played by Blunt) to bring the mogul’s favorite sporting pastime to the Middle East. “I didn’t know much about fish, and I had to learn how to cast a fly rod,” McGregor explained at the screening, which was sponsored by Grey Goose and Opium Yves Saint Laurent. He added that he learned in Scotland, where guides are called gillies, from a man named Billy: “Billy the Gillie.”

Blunt (who wore Miu Miu) stayed longer after the screening than McGregor did, getting into extended conversations at The Crosby Street Hotel’s basement lounge with both Helena Christensen and Patricia Clarkson. There was salmon there, too: smoked and placed on blinis.

Valentino And More Behold The Great Buck Howard


A magical crowd gathered at the Tribeca Grand Hotel Tuesday night for the Cinema Society’s screening of The Great Buck Howard, hosted by Brooks Brothers. The film, a story about a washed-up mentalist, played by John Malkovich, and his personal assistant, played by Colin Hanks, features Colin’s father, Tom, playing the Dad role onscreen. Tom and Colin bear a striking resemblance in looks, mannerisms, and style. “We both go for that 1960′s Secret Service kind of look,” said Colin, clad in Calvin Klein. Colin’s Broadway co-star Jane Fonda stopped by to show her support, as did Valentino, in town for the debut of his own cinematic moment, Valentino: The Last Emperor, playing next week at MoMA. “I’ve done a lot in my life. I can’t wait to see what everyone thinks of it,” said the designer, who mingled with his The Devil Wears Prada co-star Emily Blunt, who plays a sexy publicist in Buck Howard. The after-party at the Penthouse of the Soho Grand Hotel played host to a celebrity continuum that ran the gamut from R.E.M.’s Michael Stipe to Princess Alexandra of Greece. We chatted up the movie’s muse, real-life mentalist and TV star George Kresge, Jr., a.k.a. the Amazing Kreskin, who lamented the end of all the free clothes he used to get when he had his own show. When we pointed Fred Schneider of the B-52s in Kresge’s general direction, he exclaimed, “The Amazing Kreskin? Now that’s the kind of celebrity I want to meet!”

Theyskens In At Ricci, For Now


Olivier Theyskens is somewhat safe at Nina Ricci. In response to rumors that the long-haired one is getting the ax, Theyskens’s boss didn’t necessarily dish out hearty reassurances of the designer’s safety, but rather expressed lukewarm faith in Theyskens’s talent and a promise of an exacting review. No pressure, Olivier.

So long, Deep Throat. The anonymous informant died yesterday, making politics a little less sexy.

You can take the boy out of L.A., but you can’t take L.A. out of the boy. Jeremy Piven escapes from Broadway using ye olde sushi excuse, but we know he just couldn’t handle the weather.

This is a tough one. The apparent union of The Devil Wears Prada‘s Emily Blunt and The Office‘s John Krasinski poses a quandary for celebrity-couple moniker makers. Perez suggests Bluntinski; we like Krasunt. What about you, Style Filers?
