Runway to Red Carpet: Athletic Influence and Award-Worthy Style

-------

Diane KrugerFor Hollywood’s TV elite, this weekend was filled with Emmy Award-related activities, from primping and preening to up-all-night after-parties to the actual awards ceremony. Those of us not lucky enough to attend spent Sunday night glued to our TVs and computers to catch all of the action. While there were many stunning frocks on the red carpet, we spotted several equally chic looks on the pre- and post-party circuit, too. Kiernan Shipka, who has proven her fashion chops at a young age, chose a playful two-toned Delpozo dress with structured pleats for a Friday night pre-Emmy fete. Meanwhile, on Saturday evening, Claire Danes attended Showtime’s Emmy Eve soiree in a black strapless fit-and-flare dress with white butterfly appliqués from Lanvin’s Fall ’13 runway. The Homeland star brought home the trophy for lead actress in a drama series the following night.

Over in China, a handful of stars bypassed the Emmys to support the new Qingdao Oriental Movie Metropolis, which is one Chinese businessman’s attempt to create a cinema city that rivals Hollywood. Both Kate Beckinsale and Nicole Kidman donned on-trend black-and-white ensembles to the groundbreaking ceremony on Sunday. Kidman topped a sheer black blouse and sleek black pants with a white blazer, all from Saint Laurent. Beckinsale went with a classic sixties look, choosing a white tweed Oscar de la Renta dress accented with black around the waist. She finished it off with cherry-red heels and a high bouffant updo.

As life in New York continued post-fashion week, the Metropolitan Opera opened its season on Monday with Eugene Onegin. Hollywood stars such as Heather Graham and Diane Kruger wore stunning gowns on opening night; the latter chose a color-blocked dress made of silk duchesse satin from Prabal Gurung’s Resort ’14 collection. With sportswear influencing many of Spring ’14′s collections, this floor-grazing number with clean, athletic lines was a home run.

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

Not All Of The Balenciaga Action Is In The Front Rows

Kate Beckinsale, Brigette Romanek, and Elizabeth Stewart hosted an evening of shopping at Balenciaga in West Hollywood on Thursday night. The private cocktail reception featured three cheese tarts and mini chocolate caramel treats, but the sweetest part was that a portion of the evening’s proceeds went to P.S. Arts. “I just love what [designer Nicolas Ghesquière] does because there’s always something classic and archival, but also a little off from the norm,” said Beckinsale, who’s been busy promoting her subzero thriller Whiteout, which opens today. “Now I can go hide for three months.”

Yea, Nay, Or Eh: Kate Beckinsale, Over-Accessorized?

-------


It seems ironic that Kate Beckinsale once starred in a film by the title of Uncovered, because the tiny actress ventured out in L.A. yesterday practically hidden by big shades, a gigantic Bally bag, and substantial boots (paired, as it happens, with the shortest of shorts). We know that some sort of mufti is essential for stars trying to throw off the paparazzi, but do you think, like us, that Beckinsale’s accessories are just too much? Let us know.
