Runway to Red Carpet: Queens of Contrast

-------

Over the course of a particularly international week for flashbulb fashion, megawatt personalities turned up the world over in sophisticated, high-contrast (and high-impact) ensembles, each of which stood out against carpets red and step-and-repeats a-branded.

On Sunday, Taylor Swift arrived at the MuchMusic Video Awards in Los Angeles wearing an Hervé Léger by Max Azria Pre-Fall ’13—you guessed it—bandage dress. The peppy songstress accented her cage-like ribbing with a pair of strappy Christian Louboutin sandals.

Things picked up on Tuesday in Paris, where Milla Jovovich sported a Saint Laurent Spring ’13 pewter-sequined column dress and dramatic black chiffon cape (naturally, she looked lovely, but we kind of wish she had topped it all off with the flat-brim Hedi Slimane showed on the catwalk). What occasion could warrant such a theatrical outfit, you might wonder? It was for the Liaisons au Louvre III charity dinner—yes, the same dinner where Diana Ross took the stage. The chanteuse, however, opted for a fittingly fiery red gown. Jetting far east to Beijing, Zhang Ziyi attended the unveiling of Chanel’s “Little Black Jacket” exhibition wearing a simple blouse-and-bloomer combo from the house’s Scottish Pre-Fall ’13 collection. And looping back to the City of Light, funny gal Kristen Wiig attended the opening of her latest flick, Imogene, wrapped in a graphic, artfully draped Prabal Gurung dress—a twist on the techniques used in the designer’s cut-and-curved Fall ’13 military spectacular.

Lastly, Wednesday saw the industry’s highest-profile champion—Michelle Obama—hot-footing in a Carolina Herrera Pre-Fall ’13 number at a dinner in Berlin in honor of her husband. Noirish navy and silvery white whorls complemented the dress’ nipped waist, tulip flare, and ladylike shoulder-bows—FLOTUS appeared as turned out as ever.

When in Rome…

Armani's Eccentrico exhibition

Throw an epic party—or, at least, that’s Giorgio Armani’s plan of action. At 3 p.m., we’ll be taking you inside Armani’s One Night Only Roma,—a celebration of Italy (and the brand’s new Via Condotti boutique) that will feature a triple runway event (the Fall ’13 Giorgio Armani and Emporio Armani collections will hit the catwalk, as will the Spring ’13 Armani Privé range), the opening of the expanded Eccentrico exhibition, which first made its debut in Milan in September, and a cocktail party and dinner. The house expects the likes of Sophia Loren, Milla Jovovich, Tina Turner, and, of course, Mr. Armani to descend upon Rome’s Palazzo della Civiltà Italiana for the festivities. Before our live stream kicks off (below), take a peek inside the Eccentrico exhibition (above), or browse through Armani’s exclusive content at www.onenightonly.armani.com.

Armani Takes a Roman Holiday

-------

Giorgio Armani's Fall '13 ads

Tonight, Giorgio Armani and co. will head to Rome to open his new boutique on Via Condotti (think Italy’s answer to Madison Avenue). But this is Armani we’re talking about, so, naturally, there will be a grande event to celebrate the store. At 3 p.m., Style.com will live-stream the house’s One Night Only Roma—a fete that will feature runway shows of the Fall ’13 collections from Giorgio Armani and Emporio Armani, as well as the Armani Privé Spring collection, the opening of Armani’s Eccentrico exhibition, and, of course, una festa with plenty of star power (Milla Jovovich, Tina Turner, and Sophia Loren will all be in attendance). Armani, which has, in the past, hosted similar events in London, Tokyo, and Beijing, has also given us a sneak peek at its Fall ’13 campaign. Lensed by Mert & Marcus and starring Mariacarla Boscono and Florian Van Bael, the snaps have a slick, futuristic edge. Take a peek at the campaign’s exclusive debut (above), and check back this afternoon for the live stream of Giorgio Armani’s One Night Only Roma show and party.

From the Catwalk to the Carpet: Models Take Over at Cannes

-------

Doutzen Kroes, Joan Smalls, and Barbara Palvin in Cannes

Every year, the crème de la crème of the film industry get glammed up to hobnob and vamp for the paparazzi at the Cannes Film Festival. While A-listers such as Jessica Chastain, Nicole Kidman, Marion Cotillard, Carey Mulligan, and Zoe Saldana have made an impressive showing thus far, they’ve arguably been eclipsed by the contingent of top-tier catwalkers who have flocked to the red carpets en masse. Yesterday, in particular, was a model-watcher’s paradise, with the likes of Joan Smalls, Petra Nemcova, Barbara Palvin, Chanel Iman, Jessica Hart, and Erin Heatherton posing for the cameras like the pros that they are. Milla Jovovich, Liya Kebede, and Doutzen Kroes were snapped multiple times earlier in the week, and Yasmin Warsame and Irina Lazareanu made some memorable cameos, too. Presumably, even more runway regulars will turn up at the amfAR blowout on Thursday—we’ve got it on authority that Liu Wen and Karolina Kurkova are already in town. Sorry, starlets. When it comes to posing and strutting in borrowed gowns, models simply do it best.

Tao Okamoto Trades the Catwalk for the Silver Screen

-------

Although she starred in the recent Mario Sorrenti-lensed Rihanna for River Island campaign (above), Japanese model Tao Okamoto has largely been missing from the catwalk. And now, our suspicions as to why have been confirmed. The trailer for the new X-Men film, The Wolverine (out this summer), was released today, and guess who plays Wolverine’s (i.e., Hugh Jackman’s) love interest, Mariko Yashida? Sure, we know the stigma surrounding the “model-slash-actress” title, but perhaps Okamoto will follow in the footsteps of peers like Milla Jovovich and Amber Valletta to make her mark. Take a peek at Okamoto’s acting debut in the film’s trailer, below.
