Runway to Red Carpet

-------

Scarlett Johansson, January Jones, Diane Kruger

This week saw plenty of A-list step-and-repeat action—from Tuesday’s The Bling Ring premiere in New York to Wednesday’s MaxMara-underwritten Women in Film Awards in Los Angeles. January Jones (above, center) attended the latter event in a stunning dress boasting one of Mary Katrantzou’s prismatic Fall ’13 prints. Inspired by early-twentieth-century photogravures, Katrantzou screened dreamy noir landscapes across the collection’s frocks, which were then splashed with rainbow-bright accents. Jones likened the motif to something she’d colored with glitter pens as a child.

The West Coast also hosted Monday night’s Critics’ Choice Television Awards. There, Diane Kruger (above, right) hot-stepped in a vampish Nina Ricci dress—in fact, it was the same look that closed designer Peter Copping’s Fall ’13 show for the house. She amplified her pinup aesthetic with a red lip and scarlet Manolos.

Jetting east, the Big Apple boasted its fair share of paparazzi-frenzying soirées, not least of which was Sunday’s Tony Awards. Scarlett Johansson (above, left) arrived in an angular, cropped blazer from Hedi Slimane’s Fall ’13 Saint Laurent runway. Also at the Tonys, Sienna Miller glowed in a rose-petal pink strapless Burberry Prorsum Resort ’14 dress. And finally, there’s Sofia Coppola, who can seemingly do no wrong in her label of choice—Louis Vuitton. Embodying all the breathy girlishness exuded in her films, Coppola donned a flirty sequined take on a T-shirt dress to Gotham’s The Bling Ring premiere on Tuesday evening. Part sheer, part sequined, part frilled, the choice was effortless and warmly radiant.

The Revolution Will Be…Blue?

-------

“It’s a blue revolution!” exclaimed Lydia Fenet of Christie’s while walking the indigo carpet in an aqua-hued Rachel Roy frock at last night’s screening of La Revolution Bleue—sponsored, thematically enough, by La Mer and Oceana. The documentary, which chronicles the French artist Yves Klein’s work and creation of the painting FC 1 (Fire-Color 1), lured Dr. Lisa Airan, Anh Duong, and Susan Rockefeller to the Paris Theatre, all eager to see the story behind the controversial piece, which involved nude models and gas burners. (On May 8, the oeuvre will be listed at Christie’s Post War & Contemporary Evening Sale, where it’s expected to fetch over $30 million dollars—a record for the monochromatic master.)

“As an artist, to have your name forever associated with a color is very powerful,” Duong told Style.com. “Like Schiaparelli pink, it’s as if Klein invented blue.” Before the screening, host January Jones (in Mary Katrantzou, with a hint of blue eyeliner) talked nursing and baby clothes. “I don’t know if it’s because he’s a boy but Xander responds to blue really well,” she said of her newborn son. The new mom has been painting the town, er, blue, hitting an array of parties in the Big Apple this week. As for her proclivity toward fine art? “I’d love to be a collector, but it’s an extravagant thing,” the Mad Men actress mused. “Fashion is more affordable.” Her wardrobe essentials? “Jeans and a good white men’s shirt.”

The SAG Nominations Kick-Start Awards Season

-------

This morning, the nominees for the 18th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards were announced, marking the beginning of the 2012 Oscar race (and, more importantly, the red-carpet best-dressed competition). This year’s SAG Awards was ripe with newcomers and bright prints (cue: Hailee Steinfeld in the striped Prada dress that proved to be a game-changer for the teen star) and the awards show pros like Nicole Kidman, January Jones, and a pregnant Natalie Portman (who, of course, went on to win the Oscar for her Black Swan performance). What’s to come next year? We don’t have the answer just yet, but here are some pretty good hints (below).

The New Pregnancy Trend: Sheer?

-------



A new class of mothers-to-be are celebrating their pregnancies in style—and definitely not covering them up. January Jones and Charlotte Gainsbourg, both visibly expecting, have both stepped out in recent days in sheer black outfits: Jones (above right) in a more casual Alternative Apparel silk modal boyfriend tee and jeans while shopping in L.A., and Gainsbourg (above left) in a see-through black gown at the premiere of Melancholia in Cannes. But street-style blog watchers may remember that the trend isn’t, strictly speaking, new: Stylist Julia von Boehm (bottom) who wore a similar look way back in 2009.

Pret-A-Surf, KBL Team Up On A New Pair Of Celeb-Approved Shades

-------


What do Blake Lively, January Jones, and Emma Stone (above) have in common? Plenty, upon consideration: blond hair, long legs, magazine covers, fiery hot acting careers…also: sunglasses. Lively, Jones, and Stone are just a few of the trendsetting celebs who have nabbed pairs of Pret-a-Surf‘s soon-to-debut sunglasses, made with the L.A.-based label KBL. The frames mark Pret-a-Surf’s first collaboration, and they pick up the red motif of the brand’s beachwear. “I’m sure you’ve noticed the red zipper on many of our looks,” points out Jillian Demling, who co-founded Pret-a-Surf with Karen Mulligan last year. According to Demling, both she and Mulligan have picked up multiple pairs of KBL sunglasses since the brand launched in 2007, and they immediately cottoned onto KBL cat-eyes as a fitting adjunct to Pret-a-Surf’s sporting take on vintage pinup style. “We wanted shades that our girl could wear playing tennis, surfing, or just lying on the beach.” Or, as it turns out, ducking the paparazzi.
