Despite the fact that it snowed in New York this week, the red carpet was full of summer vibes. Winter coats returned on the East Coast, and in Hollywood, short hemlines and light colors flourished for a bevy of parties, premieres, and award shows.
On Tuesday, Chloë Grace Moretz attended the opening night celebration of The Library in New York in an ecru lace frock with a black yolk from the Carven Pre-Fall ’14 lineup. The same night, another one of our favorite A-list teens, Kiernan Shipka, stepped out in a white, yellow, and gray patterned Preen dress for Jimmy Choo’s Choo.08 launch party in L.A.
With the premiere tour for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 officially underway, Emma Stone spent a lot of time on the red carpet this week. She stuck to a similar color palette for her Berlin appearances on Tuesday, choosing a light blue Erdem Fall ’14 frock dotted with red beading for the photo call and a Chanel Pre-Fall ’14 dress with a pale lavender skirt and red-striped bodice for the premiere that evening.
In case you were missing all that awards season glamour, Sunday’s MTV Movie Awards brought it back with a summery twist. Ellie Goulding walked the red carpet in a white Emporio Armani dress with cutouts on the sides, while Lupita Nyong’o opted for a gray Chanel Fall ’14 dress speckled with colorful geometrics. Rihanna strayed from the red-carpet norm, turning up in a beige corseted bodysuit and a pink silk robe from Ulyana Sergeenko’s Spring ’14 Haute Couture that took the leg-baring trend to a new level. Your move, Angelina.
Here’s a juicy tidbit of news that should help tide over Game of Thrones fans eagerly awaiting the season four premiere on April 6. This morning, Jimmy Choo announced that Kit Harington, who plays Jon Snow in the award-winning HBO fantasy series, will star in the accessory label’s forthcoming Fall ’14 men’s campaign. In addition to modeling the latest range of shoes and bags, the ruggedly handsome 27-year-old actor will also serve as the face of Jimmy Choo Man, the label’s debut men’s fragrance launching in September. While previews of the ads have yet to be released, we wouldn’t be disappointed if they looked something like the image above superimposed with luxe leather goods. The brand’s creative director, Sandra Choi, told Style.com, “Kit has an innate confidence, an effortless presence and attitude. He has an overtly masculine style and a rebellious sense of humor as well as being a very talented actor. He is the perfect Jimmy Choo Man.”
After three seasons of collaborating with Katie Grand on capsule collections, Hogan has changed things up. Simon Holloway has been hired away from Jimmy Choo to design not just the shoes and bags that are the core of the Diego Della Valle-owned brand, but also a full line of ready-to-wear. Leather, naturally, was the core of the offering. Holloway had a good-looking oversize biker jacket and a cashmere fur chubby that keyed into one of the season’s big trends. But maybe his best idea was to tap his pal, the artist Julie Verhoeven, to design clever prints. The only thing happening more than shaggy fur for Fall—at least in Milan—might just be whimsical prints. Verhoeven followed Holloway’s lead, sketching mechanic’s tools and a greasy handprint motif for floaty chiffon dresses that evoked vintage Ossie Clark. So, will artist collaborations become a signature of the new Hogan? Holloway demurred. “I don’t have enough artist friends.” But here’s something you should expect: Hogan runway shows, maybe as soon as September.
Baby, what’s your sign? Even if you aren’t an astrology junkie, we can all agree that star-and-moon motifs have a universal appeal this season. Maybe it began with the fuzzy Saint Laurent cardigan from Fall ’13, which turned up on off-duty models and actresses alike, or perhaps it was Gravity, the blockbuster film set in the stunning Milky Way Galaxy. Slip on a pair of star-studded heels for a ladylike take on the trend, or opt for a glint-y clutch for a night on the town. However, if you’re into horoscopes, you can always just wear a zodiac charm and let destiny take care of the rest. Shop our favorite cosmos-inspired pieces by Khai Khai, Jimmy Choo, and more, below.
