Runway to Red Carpet: Black and White, but Not a Bit of Boring

-------

Lara Stone in Christopher KaneIt seems the stars picked up on Resort ’14′s black-and-white cues on the red carpet this week. Wednesday afternoon, Taylor Swift mixed and matched Elie Saab separates at a press event in L.A. She paired a white blouse with a sheer lace panel on the front from Fall ’13 with black pleated shorts from the Resort ’13 collection. On the opposite coast, funny girl Tina Fey exited Late Show With David Letterman wearing a black-and-white body-con Reed Krakoff dress with a printed bodice that was perforated at the shoulders.

Tuesday night featured an appearance from model and new mom Lara Stone, who helped hubby David Walliams celebrate his birthday in London while wearing a gray camo minidress from Christopher Kane’s Fall ’13 runway. While she’s technically wearing it on the sidewalk (left), we figure that, when you’re a supermodel, the world’s your red carpet.

That same night, Lily Collins continued to shine on the red carpet at the Berlin premiere of her film The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, in a black Paper London crop top and floor-length Halston Heritage skirt, accented with a chunky gold-chain necklace and gold cuff. Lady Gaga had a very busy Monday, stepping out in four different outfits while traveling to and from several TV and radio appearances throughout the day to promote her new single, “Applause.” To start the day, Mother Monster arrived at ABC’s studio in New York for Good Morning America looking decidedly smart in a conservative (for Gaga, at least) black Balenciaga Resort ’14 frock. Her newly sophisticated style is a welcome change from the queen of sartorial shock. But fans of her more eccentric looks need not fret—she later changed into a white sculpted paper Mathieu Mirano ensemble for her on-screen appearance.

Here, more of this week’s red-carpet highlights.

Yea, Nay, Or Eh? SJP’S Spin Control

Yes, last night was the Sex and the City 2 premiere. (Read all about it here.) We’ll get to the movie, the madness, all the rest of it in due course. But first and foremost: What about Sarah Jessica Parker’s premiere gown, arguably the most eagerly anticipated dress of the year? We figured she’d go for Halston Heritage (not that she doesn’t wear enough of it in the film), but Parker opted instead for butter-yellow Valentino Couture, with enough volume and flounce (see her twirl, left; one’s got to admit it’s better than Liza’s) to keep even her alter ego Carrie happy. It’s a bold choice, but we think the Day-Glo stunner suits Sarah, especially paired with her loose, Veronica Lake chignon and armful of Leighton jewels. What do you think? Is this Sex done right?
