Judging by the wares spotted on recent red carpets, like the sheer-paneled Antonio Berardi gown Gwyneth Paltrow donned to the Iron Man 3 premiere and the posterior-flashing Givenchy frock Ke$ha sported at last night’s Billboard awards, it would seem there’s a risqué trend afoot. And it’s spilling over onto the Resort ’14 runways, but with a ladylike twist. Chanel, J.W. Anderson’s Versus Versace, and Christian Dior each offered examples of flowery, diaphanous lace. Karl Lagerfeld opted for subtle applications, namely with a bra-revealing blouse shown under a matching blazer, while Raf Simons went full monty-ette, splitting one dress with a mint-colored, neck-to-knee filigree. Anderson offset the neon pink of a slash-away skirt with a hip-high black-lace inset. Needless to say, it left little to the imagination—save what one would possibly wear underneath.
Lots of excitement chez the much-discussed Gwyneth Paltrow this week. Earlier today, People magazine named the actress the “World’s Most Beautiful Woman.” And tomorrow, Paltrow’s feel-good lifestyle Web site, Goop.com, will release a limited-edition range of accessories—like sleek suede totes, leather flat clutches, and geometric catchalls—by L.A.-based designer Clare Vivier. Each piece can be customized via metallic initials in the Goop font. “I have been a longtime fan of the site and was thrilled to work alongside their team,” said Vivier. The collaborative wares, which come in calming gray hues and white with a nautical navy stripe, will retail for between $130 and $420.
Since branching out to launch their clothing line, Co, in 2011, L.A.-based writer Justin Kern and producer Stephanie Danan have seamlessly straddled the worlds of fashion and film. Each season, they’ve released a mini-movie to complement their collections of easy, no-nonsense feminine separates and dresses. And each season, these shorts have evolved. “The first one was like a trailer, with no talking, and now they’ve become more like movies,” said Kern. Spring ’13 marks Co’s third cinematic endeavor, and the designers teamed up with Oscar-nominated director Stuart Blumberg (whose new movie Thanks for Sharing, starring Gwyneth Paltrow, comes out this August) to create She Said, She Said, a comedic short about a lesbian divorce. This is almost certainly the first fashion film to explore said subject. But even when they’re fighting over assets, stars Marisa Tomei and Élodie Bouchez do the label’s Spring ’13 wares (which include everything from a draped, wing-sleeve black gown to a furry black, white, and pink trapeze top) justice. “We were a bit inspired by clothes actresses wear when they have to go to court,” said Kern of the styling. “I just remember, back in the day, when Winona Ryder went through that whole [shoplifting] ordeal. She looked so pristine in court, and you felt like she couldn’t possibly have committed a crime,” laughed Danan. The movie also stars comedian David Wain, who plays the couple’s lawyer, as well as Parks and Recreation‘s Aubrey Plaza, who portrays a leather-trouser-wearing temptress.

Label: Wilfredo Rosado
Need to Know: After years of working with Giorgio Armani, Wilfredo Rosado realized his dream was to launch his own fine jewelry collection. And in 2011, he did just that. Top international retailers like Bergdorf Goodman and Lane Crawford quickly snatched up his unique pieces. His cameos were an instant success, Gwyneth Paltrow wore his pink feather and diamond earrings to the 2011 Grammys, and ever since debuting his first collection, editors and buyers alike have championed his extravagant, eccentric take on diamonds.
When asked about his Fall ’13 collection, Rosado told Style.com that he has always been a fan of the Smoke series of burned furniture by the Dutch designer Maarten Baas. He’s fascinated by the idea of creating high-luxury pieces and treating them as common, non-precious objects. You can’t get much more precious than 18-karat gold set with sapphires, diamonds, and emeralds. But for Fall, Rosado inlaid his decadent wares with burned wood. He tells us they’re meant to be worn as everyday accessories.
He Says: “Should I call this collection ‘HOT’? I just want women—or men, for that matter—to look and feel cool wearing it, without feeling like they’re wearing the family jewels!”
Where to Find It: Bergdorf Goodman, Just One Eye, Neiman Marcus
