Regarding Marc Jacobs’ Prada Obsession

-------

FREE ARTS NYC 15th Annual Art Auction with MARC JACOBS  & SCOTT CAMPBELLMarc Jacobs has a weakness for Prada. Specifically, Marc Jacobs has a weakness for women’s Prada overcoats that feature various embellishments. It’s a look that he’s been cultivating for some time.

Consider, for instance, the black, Japanese blossom-adorned number from Spring 2013 he wore to The Great Gatsby premiere last April. (Anna Wintour—coincidentally? —showed up in an identical garb.) Or take his twinsie moment with Love magazine editrix Katie Grand, in which the pair sported matching rainbow fur coats from Miuccia’s Spring 2014 collection. (Grand also styled him in drag for a spread in Industrie a few years back.)

Jacobs continued his streak at last night’s 15th annual Free Arts NYC Art Auction, which honored artist Scott Campbell. His topper of choice? A blue, monochromatic—and decidedly fur-less—bejeweled number from Spring 2014. Superfan, indeed.

Runway to Red Carpet: Summer-Ready Stars and an Impeccable Royal Tour

-------

Emma StoneFrom blockbuster premieres to opening-night fetes, the red carpet saw plenty of A-list action this week. The Other Woman‘s trio of leading ladies stepped it up for the L.A. premiere, opting for summer-ready dresses. Cameron Diaz smoldered in a Stella McCartney LBD, while Kate Upton donned a silver Dolce & Gabbana mini smattered with white floral appliqués. Leslie Mann went for a bright and breezy Spring ’14 Monique Lhuillier floor-length number with a pink bodice and fiery skirt.

Kate Middleton continued her Royal Australian tour, and, per usual, she’s been impeccably dressed for every outing. We’ve noticed that the Duchess of Cambridge has been wearing a slew of American designers, including Diane von Furstenberg, Lela Rose, and Jenny Packham, to name a few. Paired with a navy hat and a red poppy pin, the blue and white Michael Kors Spring ’14 coatdress she stepped out in for the ANZAC Day march and commemorative service on Friday morning was a highlight.

Topping this week’s best-dressed list was Emma Stone, who chose a sophisticated Prada number for the premiere of her new film, The Amazing Spider-Man 2. The nude georgette slipdress was suspended by a sleek metal harness and boasted plunging sides. Finished off with strappy silver sandals from the Italian powerhouse, the look was one of Stone’s best yet.

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

EXCLUSIVE: The Prada Dress We Will Probably Dream About Forever

-------

Prada

If you have an extra $27,000 to spare, you could buy a car… or this stunning Prada dress. For Spring ’14, Prada enlisted Swiss lace-makers to create a very small, very special selection of macrame dresses, which debut exclusively here on Style.com. Our favorite? This black guipure lace shift dress with cobalt, petal pink, and orange accents. If anyone could make those colors look out of this world, it’s Miuccia Prada. If you’re in the market for something super special, we suggest you act fast – these limited-edition styles won’t last long.

Prada Macrame Dress, $27,000, available in select Prada boutiques. For more information, visit prada.com.

Marina’s Must-Haves: Prada’s Studded Bucket Bag

Prada Bucket Bag

I’m looking for a fun, colorful bag to carry around this spring. Prada’s newest studded bucket style in this rich red hue fits the bill perfectly. I’ve always been playful with my clutches, but it’s been a while since I’ve invested in a colorful leather handbag. This shade of red is so versatile that I consider it a neutral, and the bag will seamlessly transition into fall. In fact, I’d use it to add a playful pop of color to my looks all year long.

Queen of the Catwalk: All About Style.com’s First Model Walk-Off Winner, Freja Beha Erichsen, and the Heated Competition

-------

Freja Beha ErichsenThe polls for Style.com’s first-ever Model Walk-Off officially closed this morning, and I personally couldn’t be happier with the result: None other than Freja Beha Erichsen claimed the championship title, beating out Chinese model Sui He with 66 percent of votes. It was a walk down memory lane going through our extensive archive of the Danish fashion icon’s runway career, which spans from her Fall 2005 Prada debut to her most recent, title-winning appearance at Louis Vuitton. Erichsen, who has been described as the “reigning queen of androgynous cool,” has scaled back her catwalk work significantly in recent years (to focus on more lucrative ad campaigns and edgy editorials), which made her victory here that much sweeter.

Still, there were plenty of twists and turns leading up to Erichsen’s final triumph. Voters and the Style.com team embarked upon a long and involved selection process, going through every single one of our video Move It clips from Fall ’14 to choose eight models from each city (representing a dynamic mix of established veterans and noteworthy newcomers from a range of backgrounds). The upsets began immediately once we turned the voting over to readers. In Round 1, for example, Estonian stunner Katlin Aas (an in-house favorite here at Style.com) knocked out well-known super Karolina Kurkova. And speaking of supermodels, the Paris bracket was particularly competitive from the get-go, with Gisele Bündchen trouncing Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and Kendall Jenner coming from behind to beat girl of-the-moment Anna Ewers. Meanwhile, it was smooth sailing for Cara Delevingne, until she went up against Erichsen. On the other side of the bracket, we were flabbergasted to see Grace Mahary clobber Karlie Kloss (wearing that dramatic Donna Karan red dress, no less) in Round 2, and were on the edge of our seats watching the close race between Joan Smalls and Mariacarla Boscono.

All in all, the premiere Walk-Off left us with plenty to discuss and plenty to look forward to next season.
