Runway to Red Carpet: Pre-Oscar Fetes and a Well-Heeled Actress-Turned-Entrepreneur

-------

LupitaAs the Oscar countdown draws to a close, the celebrity set kept busy this week with a multitude of parties, premieres, and the final award show leading up to the season’s main event. For Saturday’s NAACP Image Awards in Hollywood, Lupita Nyong’o chose a plunging earth-toned Givenchy dress, a red-carpet first for her, from the Pre-Fall ’14 lineup. Nyong’o added another trophy to her growing collection that evening, taking home the statue for Outstanding Supporting Actress. A radiant Kerry Washington accepted several awards, including Outstanding Actress in a Drama Series for her role on Scandal, in a custom navy and peach silk Thakoon gown.

On Tuesday, Naomi Watts hosted Bulgari’s pre-Oscar fete that brought out stars such as Kate Hudson, Olivia Munn, and Dianna Agron to celebrate “Decades of Glamour” in Hollywood. Watts chose a look fresh off the Fall ’14 runway: Altuzarra’s black column with magenta and orange accents.

The famously well-heeled Sarah Jessica Parker turned her love of footwear into more than a hobby when she launched her namesake SJP Collection this week. On Wednesday, the actress feted the opening of her Nordstrom pop-up shop in New York, stepping out in a pale pink Valentino frock hemmed with black lace, paired with green sandals from her own collection, which launches today.

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

Runway to Red Carpet: Glamorous Gowns and a Double Dose of Denim

-------

Kate Hudson in BalmainBetween parties, premieres, and Natalia Vodianova’s Love Ball, it was a busy week on the red carpet. On Sunday night, Christina Ricci attended the premiere of The Smurfs 2 in New York wrapped in a green patterned sheath from Thom Browne’s Resort ’14 collection. In Seoul, South Korea, on Monday, Tilda Swinton showed up at the premiere of her film Snowpiercer in an oriental-inspired gown fresh off Valentino’s Fall ’13 Couture runway. That same evening in L.A., Hart of Dixie star Rachel Bilson attended the CW, CBS, and Showtime Summer TCA Party in a shimmering white dress by 3.1 Phillip Lim.

Lovelace made its debut in New York on Tuesday night, and the film’s leading lady, Amanda Seyfried, walked the red carpet in a ruffled denim cocktail frock from Givenchy’s Resort ’14 offering. Kate Hudson (left), too, donned a denim look this week. She turned up to Wednesday’s premiere of Clear History in L. A. wearing an embroidered quilted mini from Balmain’s Resort ’14 lineup. It would seem that denim—with its sophisticated new spin—is well on its way to becoming a new red-carpet favorite.

On Our Radar: Ippolita Bags

-------

The Florence-born jeweler Ippolita—one-name only, please—has had the likes of Kate Hudson, Halle Berry, Reese Witherspoon, and more wearing her elegant 18-karat gold and sterling jewelry for 12 years now. Soon, the red-carpet set will see the designer’s new handbags (prices start at $1,495), too. Made of python and suede and topped with brass and wood detailing, the new accessories will launch at the same time as her new Madison Avenue store, her first-ever retail location. The full collection consists of six different color combinations; my favorite is above.

Who Was Best Dressed At The White House Correspondents’ Dinner?

-------

Maybe the much talked-about new White House social secretary, Jeremy Bernard, had something to do with it, or perhaps it’s because it’s an election year, but this weekend’s 98th annual Correspondents’ Association Dinner was its most star-studded ever. Everyone from Reese Witherspoon and Charlize Theron to Kim Kardashian and Lindsay Lohan made appearances, mingling with the President and the First Lady, as well as the usual array of politicians and journalists. At the top of our best-dressed list stand Kate Hudson in a dazzling purple Jenny Packham gown, Dakota Fanning (pictured) in an embellished, sky blue Prada number, and Elizabeth Banks, who sported a bright red Antonio Berardi column with a peplum waist.

What To Do When Your Met Ball Star’s Got
A Baby Bump? No Sweat—Just Go Custom

-------

It was fitting that IWC Schaffhausen chose a space on the Culver Studios lot for the U.S. debut of their latest collaboration with famed photog Peter Lindbergh: Its stars are, well, Hollywood stars. But the vibe of the new campaign is more Dolce Vita than Sunset Boulevard, in homage to the Italian spirit of the watchmaker’s new Portofino collection. Patrick Dempsey, Isabel Lucas, Shiva Rose, and even Sylvester Stallone came by for a look, but of all the portraits, Rebecca Gayheart expressed a family preference when picking her favorite. “I came to see all of Peter [Lindbergh]’s amazing photos, but of course I’m most excited to see my husband’s,” Gayheart told Style.com of the action shot of hubby Eric Dane. He appears in the black-and-white shots alongside Kevin Spacey, Cate Blanchett, Jean Reno, and Elle Macpherson.

Fresh off of styling Jessica Alba’s Patrick Demarchelier-shot ads for Piaget, Brad Goreski mingled and excitedly talked about his new Bravo show, It’s a Brad Brad World, which just started filming. “You’ll get to see a lot of different tones of my life in the show. There’s my crazy, busy work life, my home life, and just about everything in between. They’re catching the ups and they’re catching my downs.” Goreski narrowly missed his former boss and fellow Bravo star, Rachel Zoe, who was enjoying her first public post-baby appearance after working from home for the past month. Though she was eager to enjoy date night with her husband, Zoe couldn’t help but bring her work with her. Clad in a tuxedo jumpsuit from her Fall ’11 collection, her focus was on Monday’s Met ball. “I’m dressing Eva Mendes and Kate Hudson, and Kate just looks so incredible pregnant.” As for Hudson’s burgeoning baby bump, “It doesn’t really need much; we just had stuff made for her, which we always do anyway for the Met,” Zoe revealed while carefully staying mum on who the actresses will be wearing.
