Looks like somebody’s campaigning to be Miuccia’s next silver-screen campaign star. Malin Akerman has hit the red carpet twice in less than a week decked out in Miu Miu: first, in a sequined peach shift to the premiere of her film Happythankyoumoreplease, and then, last night, in a navy silk top and pleated skirt to the premiere of Elektra Luxx. She even did her hair in a version of the loose side pony Guido Palau famously styled at Miu Miu’s Spring 2010 show. As actresses go, we always thought of Akerman as more sugar-and-spice than Prada’s edgy sister collection, but we’ve got to admit she makes the line look good. What do you think? Is Akerman fit to follow fellow thesps Kirsten Dunst, Katie Holmes, and Vanessa Paradis into the collection (and just maybe into its next campaign)?
Odd Molly co-founder Per Holknekt named his handmade and organic women’s label after a skater girl he met while living in California in the eighties. So it makes sense that the Swedish label’s first U.S. store debuts in the Golden State (L.A.’s Robertson Boulevard to be exact), where it all started. Friday night’s opening soirée, hosted by Helena Christensen, drew Heidi Klum, Kelly Osbourne, Kate Mara, Lake Bell, Mena Suvari, Tara Subkoff, Lydia Hearst, and Malin Akerman, among others, who sipped Champagne while Little Joy’s Fabrizio Moretti and Binki Shapiro manned the decks. “I love the way they mix fabrics, colors, and patterns—I like when it’s loose,” mused Christensen (pictured, with Holknekt and Klum). She knows what she’s talking about: For three years, she was the face of the line. Now she’s their photographer: She just shot Daisy Lowe for the label at the Chelsea Hotel.
The flagship boutique, which features indoor chain-link fencing, an antique chandelier, and clothing suspended from the ceiling, lives up to its odd moniker, but the fabulous attendees found plenty to love. “I’ve already ordered a piece,” said Heidi Klum, pointing to a denim jumpsuit on the wall. “The line reminds me of clothes you’d love as a kid,” added designer Tara Subkoff, who’s preparing to relaunch her own Imitation of Christ line. “It’s a little bohemian and fun.” Odd Molly’s got a launch in the works, too: its first menswear collection, which Holknekt says will be “nothing too extravagant, just good-looking clothing for guys who don’t want to look like they tried.”
