Runway to Red Carpet: ‘Tis the Season for Parties, Premieres, and a Christmas Spectacular


Julia Roberts and Meryl StreepWith Christmas less than a week away, the celebrity set’s calendars are brimming with holiday parties that call for lots of glitz and glamour. On Sunday Anna Kendrick hosted TNT’s annual Christmas in Washington spectacular, which brought out notables including Sheryl Crow and even the First Family. Kendrick chose an ivory velvet J. Mendel gown with a strapless V-cut bodice for the event, while FLOTUS opted for a tailored white Resort ’13 J. Mendel jacket embroidered with silver and a white pleated skirt.

On the party circuit, Florence Welch attended Love magazine’s Christmas party on Tuesday in London in sheer black lace pants and a capelike top from Marios Schwab’s Spring ’14 runway. Miley Cyrus took to the red carpet on Friday evening for New York’s Jingle Ball concert, pairing a Spring ’14 MM6 Maison Martin Margiela sleeveless tuxedo blouse with Maison Martin Margiela Fall ’13 black high-waisted pants with yellow stripes painted down the sides.

While most businesses are closed on Christmas Day, it has become tradition for a handful of blockbusters to hit theaters. (What better way to entertain yourself after opening that sweater from Grandma?) Among this year’s buzzed-about December 25 releases is August: Osage County, starring A-listers Julia Roberts and Meryl Streep. The duo posed on the red carpet together during Monday’s L.A. premiere, with Roberts in a tuxedo-inspired Givenchy ensemble and Streep sporting a white knee-length Gucci wool frock.

Here, more of this week’s red-carpet highlights.

Three’s a Trend: Oversize Oxfords


Oversized Oxfords

Not quite a shirtdress, yet not exactly standard fit, an oversize twist on men’s shirting has emerged as an early off-the-block trend for Spring ’14.

At Richard Chai Love, the designer showed a crimson-banded oxford, elongated almost to the knee, which looked particularly smart under a cropped-and-quilted optic leather jacket. MM6 Maison Martin Margiela suggested a draped, half-buttoned option in semi-see-through snow white. And lastly, Jeffrey Costello and Robert Tagliapietra turned out a diaphanous, extra-long pseudo-flannel (cue: a hunting Day-Glo plaid) at Costello Tagliapietra. “It’s beautiful on its own,” remarked Costello, “and felt modern and luxuriously comfortable.” The duo also admitted to feminizing their own wardrobes when designing Spring ’14. Call it the new-new boys’ club, of sorts.
