On Our Radar: Goop X House Of Harlow Clutch

-------

Gwyneth Paltrow and Nicole Richie are both busy moms with big businesses, so it was only natural that their new collaboration came about during a kids’ playdate. Today, Paltrow’s Goop.com unveils the new, limited-edition Addison clutch ($225) created by Richie exclusively for the brand. “As an avid Goop follower, I was thrilled with the idea of a collaboration between Goop and House of Harlow 1960,” she tells Style.com. “The Addison is an essential style and was a perfect choice to connect to the Goop aesthetic,” she explains of the oxblood snakeskin bag with jaguar clasp (which Paltrow calls “an awesome fall statement piece”). Here, Style.com debuts the bag exclusively before it hits Goop.com later today.

Tom Ford’s Lady In Red

-------

Tom Ford, designer-turned-director-turned-designer once more, has channeled the Golden Age of Hollywood in his new Fall ad campaign. Model Kati Nescher stars, wearing a scarlet version of the white gown and cape that shot Gwyneth Paltrow to the top of this year’s Oscars best-dressed lists. Style.com has an exclusive first look at the campaign, which, like last season’s, was lensed by Ford himself.

At The Met: Cape Town

-------

We’ve already noted the influence Angelina Jolie had on this year’s Met ball red carpet. No less influential: Gwyneth Paltrow. Paltrow’s cape-and-gown Tom Ford look was Oscar night’s best, and it’s proven to have legs at the Met, too. Gwyneth’s stylist, Elizabeth Saltzman Walker, told me at an event in Paris that she was inspired by Jackie Kennedy’s timeless chic when working on Gwyneth’s Academy Awards look. Last night, some of those donning capes, like Maria Grazia Chiuri, in Valentino, went for classic, too. But there were just as many others who chased glitz and glam. Lana Del Rey sparkled in custom Altuzarra, and Bianca Brandolini d’Adda, in Dolce & Gabbana, reminded me of an Italian movie star from the sixties. Sally Singer was lacy in Nina Ricci, but the cherry on the surrealist cake goes to Linda Fargo in custom Naeem Khan. Shocking, Schiaparelli-style.

A Gold Star For Gwyneth

-------

Gwyneth Paltrow, wearing a white Tom Ford column dress and matching cape, was an absolute standout at last night’s Oscar ceremonies. Earlier in the month, the designer had indicated to British Vogue that one of the dresses for the collection he just showed at London fashion week would be on the red carpet—an out-of-character move for Ford, who usually likes to keep his dresses under wraps until they hit stores. Gwyneth, however, was lucky enough to convince him otherwise.

Enough about the chic dress; what about the cuff and eye-catching ring she paired with it? We found out they are both the work of New York-based jewelry designer Anna Hu—a favorite of stars like Madonna (who used Hu’s jewels in her film, W.E.), Hilary Swank, and Oprah Winfrey. “I was speechless,” the designer, who worked under the legendary Harry Winston head designer Maurice Galli and then founded her namesake haute joaillerie line in 2008, tells Style.com. “Gwyneth was so beautiful and breathtaking in white. And to see her in my jewels was the greatest birthday present I could image.” The one-of-a-kind Hearts of Winter cuff ($1,000,000) is made up of 2,368 rose-cut diamonds, which total 163 carats; the Duchess Hibiscus double-hoop ring ($160,000) is made up of diamonds and purple sapphires.

Are These Fall Gowns Oscar Material?

-------

Hollywood stylists are forever clambering to keep their celeb clientele in the latest looks fresh off the runways, so there’s little doubt that on Sunday night, we’ll be seeing a few Fall numbers at the Oscars. Compared to many of the ostentatious front-row fixtures at fashion week, most starlets play it safe. (Sorry, Marc, the only actress out there gonzo enough to take your newest lineup for a spin is Helena Bonham Carter). A-listers often opt for classic gowns, like the teal, tie-shouldered number from Oscar de la Renta (the color would be gorgeous with Jessica Chastain’s fiery tresses) or Michael Kors‘ long-sleeved dazzler (pictured), which has Albert Nobbs star Glenn Close’s name written all over it. And with all the attention Rooney Mara attracted at the Calvin Klein show a few weeks back, we wouldn’t be surprised to see her turn up in one of Francisco Costa’s minimal black finale frocks. Many of the heavy hitters won’t be presenting until Paris next week, but it seems some designers have wised up to awards season and are strategically debuting their unseen collections on the red carpet instead of the runway. Case in point: Gwyneth Paltrow at the Emmys, wearing a sheer Emilio Pucci two-piece look that appeared again on the Spring catwalk a few days later. We’re hoping to see a few more of those fashion-forward surprises this weekend.
