Red Carpet Ready: Elizabeth Stewart’s Golden Globes Diary

-------

In the days leading up to January 13′s Golden Globes, L.A.-based celebrity superstylist Elizabeth Stewart is giving Style.com an exclusive behind-the-scenes account of what it takes to dress Hollywood’s hottest starlets. This season, she’s working with best actress nominee Jessica Chastain, Les Misérables star Amanda Seyfried, Julia Roberts (who’s presenting), and Cody Horn on their red-carpet looks. Below, Stewart gives us a glimpse at the day-to-day pre-Globes process.

Thursday, January 10

I had an early morning fitting with Linda Cardellini, who is nominated for an Indie Spirit Award. Then I met with Brit Marling, who showed up with a bunch of pressed juices.

Brit stars in—as well as co-wrote and co-produced— The East, which is premiering at Sundance. She has super cool, sophisticated taste, so we get very excited at our fittings—we share a love of fabulous fashion!

My seamstress Ana fit her right then and there. There’s so much going on that we just wanted to get it done! Now my assistant, Katie, and I will split up: She will get Amanda Seyfried ready for the Critics’ Choice Awards while I get Jessica Chastain ready.

Still Thursday! Jessica Chastain flew in to L.A. for the Critics’ Choice Awards tonight. Afterward, she has to fly right back to N.Y. for two performances of The Heiress before coming back on Sunday for the Globes. She does it all with a smile. Her family is really great. Here is her grandma Marilyn, who is her date for the Critics’ Choice! This is right before they are out the door. Continue Reading “Red Carpet Ready: Elizabeth Stewart’s Golden Globes Diary” »

Bag Lunch

-------

As standard logic goes, being called a “bag lady” is a bad thing. But yesterday, at the sprawling Beverly Hills home of socialite Shanna Brooks (which is also Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston’s former love nest), the term was one of endearment at the ninth annual P.S. Arts Bag Lunch.

“There are worse ways to spend an afternoon,” mused How I Met Your Mother actress Becki Newton of stylists George Kotsiopoulos and Elizabeth Stewart’s yearly designer handbag auction sponsored by Dior Beauty, which raises funds for the L.A.-based arts education organization. With Jimmy Choo, Mulberry, and Ferragamo bags on offer, starting at 60 percent off their standard retail prices, we would have to agree with the actress. Naturally, Newton and fellow attendees, including designer Magda Berliner, artist Kimberly Brooks, and Two Broke Girls star Beth Behrs all clamored to get in on the for-charity deals.

“I have that sample sale mentality,” Newton explained. “So I kept doing laps to see what I could find and by the time I got back to the ones that I wanted they were gone.” Not everyone left empty-handed. Kristin Davis (pictured), who has lent her name as a host of the event since its inception, went home with a muted blue leather Chanel tote at the advice of Stewart (her stylist and the event’s co-founder). “I have a blue Chanel and it goes well with jeans,” Stewart said of the classic choice. “And I envy it!” said Davis. The most coveted (and fought over) piece of the day, however, turned out to be a brown ostrich bag by Tom Ford, which went for $6,000. By auction’s end, the crowd raised nearly $200,000 for P.S. Arts. And for one afternoon, at least, being called a bag lady was a badge of honor.
