Lea Michele certainly has a flair for the dramatic—the star of Glee grew up performing on Broadway, after all—but we would have preferred to see a more toned-down look on the actress at Fox’s upfront after-party yesterday. On the runway, this Erdem frock was paired with little more than a smoky eye, lending some much-needed edge to a sophisticated print. Michele’s voluminous updo and dark pout are just too much here. What do you think? Do you like seeing the real-life Rachel Berry experiment on the red carpet, or should this solo be cut?
The British Fashion Council announced today that Erdem Moralioglu is the winner of the first BFC/Vogue Designer Fashion Fund Award, beating out fellow Britons Angel Jackson, Christopher Kane, Clements Ribeiro, E. Tautz, Marios Schwab, Nicholas Kirkwood, and Richard Nicoll. The award comes with a £200,000 prize and access to mentors across the industry. “I am thrilled to be the winner of the BFC/Vogue Fashion Fund. It is an honor,” the Turkish-born designer said simply.

If you need any evidence that Nicholas Kirkwood is London fashion week’s go-to cobbler, look no further than the display he’s set up at LFW’s Somerset House headquarters. After every show in which a Kirkwood shoe appears, a pair is added to the installation—at last count, half a dozen pairs. But fans can rejoice that one new pair will be available off the runway, too: the collaborative Kirkwood-Erdem boots that debuted at Erdem’s show yesterday will be sold to stores, making them only the second NK collab (after his designs for Rodarte) made available to the public.
Olsen worshippers, start praying to the ticket gods: Ashley (pictured in Erdem from Sunday’s Golden Globes awards ceremony) has announced that they’ll be hosting the first show for The Row this February in New York. We’re guessing these gods in particular appreciate sacrificial offerings of leather leggings and enormous Givenchy bags. [Vogue U.K.]
