Ron Howard’s new film Rush—a flick starring Daniel Brühl (above), Alexandra Maria Lara, Olivia Wilde, Joséphine de la Baume, and Chris Hemsworth, about two rival Formula 1 drivers in the seventies—hits theaters on September 13. And Salvatore Ferragamo’s Massimiliano Giornetti reportedly dressed the movie’s leading couple, Brühl and Lara, who play racer Niki Lauda and his wife, Marlene Lauda, respectively. “I created Niki Lauda’s character’s wardrobe for the film with his most distinctive traits in mind: an extremely determined sportsman obsessed with perfection, never leaving anything to chance, whether it be a strategic move or a stylistic detail,” Giornetti said of the costumes. Sounds a bit like the house’s sporty Spring ’14 menswear collection, no?
Nothing adds a royal touch quite like velvet, and we’ve noticed plenty of it in the recent pre-fall, Haute Couture, and even menswear collections. At Alexander McQueen, Sarah Burton whipped up an ecclesiastical draped robe in cardinal red, while Stella McCartney, Rochas’ Marco Zanini, and Peter Copping at Nina Ricci were among the designers who incorporated the fabric into eveningwear. Christopher Kane, for his part, took the material in a more casual direction with a cool biker jacket. Velvet is getting play in the real world, too. Jessica Alba turned up to the Dior Haute Couture show this week wearing a sumptuous black topcoat, while Joséphine de la Baume gave off a witchy vibe in a crushed-velvet number at the Amy Winehouse Foundation Ball.

Agent Provocateur seems to have found its go-to girl in Charlotte Dellal. Just last year, the shoe designer lent her fashionable hand to the luxury lingerie label’s ad campaign, starring Josephine de la Baume, and now she’s done a sexy Charlotte Olympia shoe collaboration for AP’s premium Soiree line. Two styles of sky-high heels (pictured), the Candice, a modern take on a classic boudoir slipper, and the Bellatrix, a black patent leather stiletto with zipper detail, will make their debut tonight at Seven Bar Foundation’s Lingerie London Fashion Show and Gala. But those who are itching to get their hands on a pair right away are in luck. Both variations ($1,190) are available on Net-a-porter.com starting today.
