Runway to Red Carpet: The Celeb Circuit Steps Out for Two Blockbuster Press Tours

-------

Shailene Woodley While much of the Hollywood set tends to enjoy a little break after the awards season finale, the stars of March’s blockbusters have been busy promoting their high-profile flicks. The A-list stars of the biblical epic Noah have been trotting around the world promoting the film, and the picture’s leading ladies have been continually knocking it out of the sartorial ballpark at each premiere. In Madrid, Jennifer Connelly chose a nude Giambattista Valli Spring ’14 Haute Couture frock embroidered with pale leaves and a crystal neckline. Her equally chic costar Emma Watson opted for a black-and-white J. Mendel ensemble, featuring a draped white blouse and tapered black pants fresh off the Fall ’14 runway.

Stateside, the stars of the buzzed-about Divergent have had a busy premiere week of their own. Shailene Woodley, the film’s heroine and a rapidly rising star, stepped out in a black figure-hugging jumpsuit with a sheer detailed bodice from Elie Saab’s Pre-Fall ’13 lineup for a screening in New York on Thursday. In true Hollywood fashion, a bevy of notables turned up for the film’s world premiere in Los Angeles on Tuesday, including Kiernan Shipka, Ellie Goulding, and Zoe Kravitz. Shipka attended the L.A. premiere of Divergent in Valentino’s tulle frock covered with armor-like patchwork from the Spring ’14 runway, while Kravitz turned up in a white off-the-shoulder frock from BFF Alexander Wang’s Spring ’14 Balenciaga collection.

Runway to Red Carpet: Sparkles Galore and a Courageous Katniss

-------

Jennifer LawrenceWhile the subtle sparkle of diamonds is often the finishing touch on a red-carpet look, a few of the best ensembles of the week were doused with glittering crystals. Elizabeth Banks continued to hit the sartorial nail on the head as The Hunger Games: Catching Fire tour came to a close in New York on Wednesday. She shimmered in a bedazzled black ensemble from Jenny Packham’s Fall ’13 runway. The same evening in Las Vegas, Kate Bosworth chose a scintillating Spring ’14 Fendi frock completely covered in geometric Swarovski crystals for the premiere of her new film, Homefront.

Before finishing its whirlwind press tour in New York, Catching Fire held a star-studded premiere in Los Angeles on Monday, which brought out notables including Kiernan Shipka, Zoë Kravitz, and Sarah Hyland. Shipka charmed in a black silk sleeveless blouse and skirt embroidered with green and blue floral beading from Miu Miu’s Spring ’14 collection, and Kravitz opted for a Balenciaga Spring ’14 LBD with a wide neckline and buttons up the side. The nod for best dressed of the evening goes to the film’s leading lady, Jennifer Lawrence, in a daring sheer Dior Fall ’13 Couture gown with a full skirt over a strapless black bodysuit. We appreciate that Katniss is as fearless on the red carpet as she is in the arena.

Runway to Red Carpet: Sequined Lips and a Double Dose of Dolce

-------

Hailee SteinfeldLast Friday night, Teen Vogue kicked off the weekend with its annual Young Hollywood party to celebrate the silver screen’s rising stars. To no one’s surprise, Kiernan Shipka ranked among the best dressed of the evening. Stepping out in a black top and silver and black paisley-print pants from Emporio Armani, the 13-year-old starlet consistently masters the fine art of appearing mature and sophisticated yet youthful and age-appropriate at the same time. Modern Family’s Sarah Hyland was also in attendance in a white Clover Canyon frock with a playful print that featured everything from colorful florals to skiers racing down the hem of the skirt.

Tilda Swinton, the master of androgynous chic, continues to nail menswear-inspired trends on the red carpet. On Wednesday evening she accepted the Douglas Sirk Award at the Hamburg Film Festival in Germany in an all-black Haider Ackermann pantsuit, accented with a diamond brooch and striking red lips. The following afternoon, Chloë Grace Moretz and Julianne Moore gave us a double dose of Dolce at the unveiling of Moore’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Moretz paired red heels with her blush-pink Dolce & Gabbana dress, while Moore opted for a pale yellow dress with sparkles along the neck and wrists. Meanwhile, on Thursday in Madrid, Hailee Steinfeld donned a black diamond-patterned skirt with a kitschy Markus Lupfer sweatshirt covered in sequined pouty lips to a photo call for her new film, Ender’s Game. Paired with knee-high black Stuart Weitzman boots (and bangs!), Steinfeld put a fresh twist on schoolgirl chic.

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.
