Vena Cava’s Sophie Buhai and Lisa Mayock didn’t have their show as usual this season, opting instead to have their celebrity friends, including Nora Zehetner and Tennessee Thomas, model their forties-esque clothing in their Spring ’12 lookbook. If you thought you had already seen all the looks, think again. Today, Style.com shares a few more offerings from the duo, modeled by Maggie Gyllenhaal.
“Maggie was our ideal woman to represent Vena Cava,” Mayock tells Style.com. “She’s a movie star in the traditional sense, but also has the modern-day qualities we admire and adore in friends, collaborators, and accomplices.”
It was (almost) all YSL, all the time at the Met last night, where house CEO Valerie Hermann hosted the Metropolitan Opera’s gala premiere of Armida. Its star diva, Renée Fleming, wore Saint Laurent, as did Maggie Gyllenhaal, Patricia Clarkson, and Ginnifer Goodwin, but our vote for the night’s best dressed goes to the young actress Camille Belle, who shined in a tiered muslin gown from YSL Edition Soir (the label’s non-runway collection). She finished off her look with strappy YSL patent heels and a few choice jewels from Cartier. Black tie can be a tricky proposition for Hollywood’s younger stars, but Belle’s no newbie to the red carpet (or classical music, it turns out—she grew up on Mozart). We’re singing her praises. Are you?

With camel poised to overtake black as the studied non-color of the season, it’s easy to forget the charms of the LBD. Not for Maggie Gyllenhaal. The actress hit the red carpet at the world premiere of Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang in London in a draped, asymmetrical number from Vionnet Pre-Fall ’10. Barely any bells and whistles here—just a pleated ivory silk insert in back. To complement the pared-down dress, Maggie finished the look with a loose chignon, minimal makeup, and just a pair of peep-toe black pumps. It could be louder or more daring, but we like that Maggie went for elegance rather than over-the-top glamour at this kiddie-flick premiere; she let the dog have its day. (Or, uh, the leashed pig that star Emma Thompson was inexplicably walking the carpet with.) What do you think? Is this a case of less is more here—or just not enough?
