Runway to Red Carpet: Sequins in Sydney and a Christopher Kane Double Dip

-------

Jennifer HudsonAfter several weeks of ongoing award shows, the Hollywood set conceded the spotlight to the music biz at Sunday’s Grammy Awards. The evening prior to the big event, several stars partied in style at pre-Grammy soirees. Rihanna paired a striped Spring ’14 Altuzarra blouse with a thigh-high-slit skirt at the Roc Nation pre-Grammy brunch. Miley Cyrus, meanwhile, topped a white satin slipdress with Calvin Klein Collection’s cozy pink Pre-Fall ’14 shearling coat at a pre-Grammy party in Beverly Hills.

Christopher Kane’s banded Resort ’14 frock has proven to be a very popular red-carpet choice, with Jennifer Hudson and Lara Stone joining the list of notables (including Chloë Grace Moretz and Lupita Nyong’o) who have donned versions of the look. Hudson wore the off-the-shoulder dress for Clive Davis’ pre-Grammy gala on Saturday, and Stone paired the crewneck iteration with a blazer for the Radio Times party in London on Tuesday.

Then, of course, there’s Cate Blanchett, who’s been pulling out all the sartorial stops of late. Last night at the AACTA Awards ceremony in Sydney, the actress radiated glamour in a plunging chocolate sequined Spring ’14 gown by her tried-and-true favorite, Givenchy.

Runway to Red Carpet: Black and White, but Not a Bit of Boring

-------

Lara Stone in Christopher KaneIt seems the stars picked up on Resort ’14′s black-and-white cues on the red carpet this week. Wednesday afternoon, Taylor Swift mixed and matched Elie Saab separates at a press event in L.A. She paired a white blouse with a sheer lace panel on the front from Fall ’13 with black pleated shorts from the Resort ’13 collection. On the opposite coast, funny girl Tina Fey exited Late Show With David Letterman wearing a black-and-white body-con Reed Krakoff dress with a printed bodice that was perforated at the shoulders.

Tuesday night featured an appearance from model and new mom Lara Stone, who helped hubby David Walliams celebrate his birthday in London while wearing a gray camo minidress from Christopher Kane’s Fall ’13 runway. While she’s technically wearing it on the sidewalk (left), we figure that, when you’re a supermodel, the world’s your red carpet.

That same night, Lily Collins continued to shine on the red carpet at the Berlin premiere of her film The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, in a black Paper London crop top and floor-length Halston Heritage skirt, accented with a chunky gold-chain necklace and gold cuff. Lady Gaga had a very busy Monday, stepping out in four different outfits while traveling to and from several TV and radio appearances throughout the day to promote her new single, “Applause.” To start the day, Mother Monster arrived at ABC’s studio in New York for Good Morning America looking decidedly smart in a conservative (for Gaga, at least) black Balenciaga Resort ’14 frock. Her newly sophisticated style is a welcome change from the queen of sartorial shock. But fans of her more eccentric looks need not fret—she later changed into a white sculpted paper Mathieu Mirano ensemble for her on-screen appearance.

We’ve all seen Angelina Jolie’s engagement ring, but what jewels does she have to pair with it? Just ask Robert Procop.

If Bryanboy’s front-row seat wasn’t close enough to the runway, he just got a little closer. The blogger is reportedly joining the cast of America’s Next Top Model alongside judges Kelly Cutrone and model Rob Evans.

The director of the year-old Brigitte Bardot fashion label, Sarah Ohana, has enlisted the help of industry insiders, including André Saraiva, Paris retailer Maria Luisa Moumaillou, and French fashion editor Viviane Blassel to create one-off items for charity.

A portion of the profits will be donated to the Brigitte Bardot Foundation for the protection of animals. [WWD]
