In the days leading up to January 13′s Golden Globes, L.A.-based celebrity superstylist Elizabeth Stewart is giving Style.com an exclusive behind-the-scenes account of what it takes to dress Hollywood’s hottest starlets. This season, she’s working with best actress nominee Jessica Chastain, Les Misérables star Amanda Seyfried, Julia Roberts (who’s presenting), and Cody Horn on their red-carpet looks. Below, Stewart gives us a glimpse at the day-to-day pre-Globes process.
Thursday, January 10
I had an early morning fitting with Linda Cardellini, who is nominated for an Indie Spirit Award. Then I met with Brit Marling, who showed up with a bunch of pressed juices.
Brit stars in—as well as cowrote and coproduced— The East, which is premiering at Sundance. She has supercool, sophisticated taste, so we get very excited at our fittings—we share a love of fabulous fashion!
My seamstress Ana fit her right then and there. There’s so much going on that we just wanted to get it done! Now my assistant, Katie, and I will split up: She will get Amanda Seyfried ready for the Critics’ Choice Awards while I get Jessica Chastain ready.
Still Thursday! Jessica Chastain flew in to L.A. for the Critics’ Choice Awards tonight. Afterward, she has to fly right back to N.Y. for two performances of The Heiress before coming back on Sunday for the Globes. She does it all with a smile. Her family is really great. Here is her grandma Marilyn, who is her date for the Critics’ Choice! This is right before they are out the door. Continue Reading “Red Carpet Ready: Elizabeth Stewart’s Golden Globes Diary” »
The Cannes film fest is close at hand. And if you’re headed for the sunny South of France, you’re not alone: Gwen Stefani, Patrick Dempsey, Milla Jovovich, Freida Pinto, and Michelle Yeoh will all be joining you. Style.com has learned exclusively that the quintet will be partnering with L’Oréal to host the star-studded after-party for amfAR’s annual Cinema Against AIDS gala and auction. See you at Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Rock (above). [amfAR]
A moment of silence for late Iranian-American designer and fragrance guru Bijan—just Bijan, please—who made his name on the luxest (and, he bragged, most expensive) menswear in the world. The designer is credited with turning Rodeo Drive into a destination with his Bijan showroom, as well as for his famous ads (in which he co-starred alongside Michael Jordan, Bo Derek, a few nuns, and a rabbi—though not all at the same time).

Last we checked in with Fashion Girls for Japan, they were organizing a designer-stocked sample sale to raise money for earthquake relief. The Girls are back with a new T-shirt and tote line—printed with the Berger & Wild-designed I O NY logo—for sale on their Web site; proceeds will again go to earthquake relief. (And if you’re curious, the sample sale raised $270,000.) [WWD]

And the Huffington Post claims to know who’s designing Kate Middleton’s dress, for real this time—and it’s Libélula designer Sophie Cranston. Royalphiles, arm yourself with a grain of salt and read on. [HuffPo]
Liberty prints meet Hermès scarves: an ingenious stroke of British-French entente cordiale was tied up and knotted in 52 perfectly nonchalant ways in London’s landmark store on Monday night. Liberty’s scarf room is playing host to Hermès for two months, and the byproductÔa series of floral Tana cotton lawn squares and men’s ties that have been over-printed with Hermès’ 1920′s Ex Libris pattern and horseshoes, respectively, had the curious streaming over the threshold to see what was going on. This kind of alignment between two bastions of national identity (cozy and arty on the English side; haughty on the French) just doesn’t come along that often. When guests including Dev Patel and Freida Pinto (they’re inseparable since Slumdog Millionaire) stepped inside, they were swept up in a Faubourg Saint-Honoré advanced crash course in scarf je ne sais quoi laid on by Hermès experts, and given the photographic evidence to take home. Fun as it was, the full detail of this linkup only became visible the next morning. Myriads of Hermès scarves are invitingly laid out, tied with witty flourishes to wall struts and styled with horseshoe toggles—all eminently try-on-able with the help of hand mirrors backed with orange Hermès packaging boxes (sadly not for sale; they could make a fortune on them). But most imaginative of all is the visual treat of the vast chandelier constructed of Liberty-Hermès flowered scarf squares that now twirls in the sunlight of the central atrium: one to put down as a must-visit sight when London fashion week kicks off on September 18.
