Are These Pre-Fall Gowns Red-Carpet Material?


Red-carpet season kicks off this weekend with the 69th Annual Golden Globes. Since the nominations were announced before the holidays, we’ve been playing the matching game, pairing up actresses with dresses from the pre-fall collections. Or, in the case of Tilda Swinton, with a tuxedo—we like Stella McCartney‘s brocade two-piece for the We Need to Talk About Kevin star. Come Sunday night, we’ll be paying particularly close attention to Michelle Williams and Rooney Mara. The My Week With Marilyn actress would look smashing in Peter Copping’s plunge-front column for Nina Ricci (Monroe would no doubt approve). And we’re hoping to see the Dragon Tattoo nominee play against type—maybe the coral bow-front gown from Riccardo Tisci at Givenchy? Angelina Jolie’s directorial debut, In the Land of Blood and Honey, is up for Best Foreign Language Film, and you can bet plenty of designers have been vying to dress her. We think Prabal Gurung‘s long-sleeved emerald green charmeuse gown with the draped back and puddling train has her name all over it.

CLICK FOR A SLIDESHOW, and let us know which pre-fall designs you’d like to see on the red carpet next week.

Who’ll Be Golden This January? The 2012 Golden Globe Nominations Announced


Hot on the heels of yesterday’s SAG Awards nominations, today brings news of the films and television shows and performances nominated for the 2012 Golden Globes, typically thought to be a better predictor of the Academy Award nominations than the SAGs.

Lara Gets Some Air, Irina Takes Japan, Mandy’s Movie Night, And More…


Lara Stone’s world domination continues—and her latest medium is TV. She’ll appear alongside Tyson Ballou in the new Calvin Klein Collection TV spots, which hit the airwaves during the Golden Globes’ red-carpet coverage and play throughout the show. Curious? Get a sneak peek, below. [Fashionologie]

Speaking of world-conquering models, Irina Lazareanu’s collection, Irina L., is launching at last this month—in Japan. Somehow, we don’t think that this minor detail will stop Irina fanatics from getting their hands on it. [Racked]

Rock stars: the new curators? Dance-pop headliners Scissor Sisters have added a new feather to their collective cap: Together with London’s Alison Jacques Gallery, they’ve curated a show of work by Robert Mapplethorpe, a photo of whose graced SS’ most recent album. [Hint Mag]

And fellow multi-talent Mandy Coon—lately named a winner of Ecco Domani’s Fashion Foundation grants—is trying her hand at curating, too, though of the cinematic variety: She’s organized the Fashion in Film-Designer Inspiration movie night series to screen sartorially relevant flicks. First up? Ingmar Bergman’s Persona. [T]

L.A.’s “Golden” Girls Toast J. Mendel


Outside of his comfortable Upper East Side orbit, Gilles Mendel is capitalizing on a recent surge in popularity among the Young Hollywood set. Taylor Swift, Mila Kunis, and Malin Akerman all wore J. Mendel to the recent People’s Choice Awards—as did awards season hopeful Natalie Portman on a very prominent glossy’s cover. Strike while the iron is hot, the logic goes, and strike Mendel did, with a pre-Golden Globes fête in L.A. last night, co-hosted with Audi. Mendel himself, prevented by the vagaries of the weather, didn’t end up making the event, but plenty of well-dressed admirers did. Glee‘s Jane Lynch was the first to arrive (co-star Matthew Morrison was also in attendance), but it was Modern Family‘s Sofia Vergara (left, in DVF) who was eager to talk awards show fashion. “I haven’t chosen what I’m wearing yet, but I have already narrowed it down. So whatever fits better that day, that is what I’m going to wear,” she said. Any clues as to what’s on her short list? “Dolce & Gabbana is one of my favorites; Vera Wang and Monique Lhuillier, those are my options.” Around her, the stars milled: Zac Efron greeted Hairspray co-star Brittany Snow with a warm hug for the cameras, while Paz Vega (in white) and Zoe Saldana (in warm taupe leather from J. Mendel’s pre-fall collection) ducked past the flashbulbs into the party.

Though she won’t be attending the actual Globes ceremony, Sophia Bush (clad in L.A.-based designer Oliver Tolentino) does have a dress awaiting its own occasion. “I have this Chris Benz that is to die for that I can’t wait to wear. So I’m really praying they let me out of work for the Art of Elysium event next weekend and I’ll get to finally wear it.”

But talk wasn’t all biz among the entertainment-heavy crowd, especially for Angela Lindvall. “I am a huge fan of J. Mendel,” Lindvall said (though she admitted that her best friend does his PR, which never hurts). Despite being the face of Prada, the model and part-time actress insisted she stays mostly out of the glare of the spotlights. “It’s the opening of a big week in Hollywood and I live in Topanga Canyon, where I’m raising my kids,” she said, “so it’s good for me to get out every once in a while.”

The 2011 Golden Globe Nominations


Awards season is officially here: This morning, Katie Holmes and Josh Duhamel announced the 2011 Golden Globe nominations in Hollywood. Stylists, to your marks. It’s going to be a big night for the casts of Black Swan (Natalie Portman, pictured, with nominated director Darren Aronofosky, and Mila Kunis are both nominated, and the flick is tipped for Best Picture), Blue Valentine (Michelle Williams and Ryan Gosling, plus another Best Picture nod), The Fighter (Amy Adams, Melissa Leo, and Christian Bale, plus Best Picture), Love and Other Drugs (Jake Gyllenaal and Anne Hathaway) and The Kids Are All Right (Julianne Moore and Annette Bening, both nominated for Best Actress). The King’s Speech leads the nominations with 7 total (including ones for Best Actor Colin Firth, Best Supporting Actress Helena Bonham Carter, and Best Picture), and Johnny Depp scored a pair of nominations (for Alice in Wonderland and The Tourist). And yes, because everyone’s wondering: James Franco is nominated for 127 Hours. For the full list, including the TV noms, too (Glee leads the pack with 5), head over to
