Carey Mulligan Forks Out Prada

-------

Carey MulliganJudging by the archival looks she wore in The Great Gatsby, not to mention her dolled-up press tour, Carey Mulligan knows how to wear a Prada gown. However, after learning about Mulligan’s less chic (albeit hilarious) encounter with the brand pre-Gatsby, we’re almost surprised that Mrs. Prada was so generous with her wares. Mulligan confessed to British Voguethat during her first time at the Oscars, she wore a strapless black Prada number embellished with tiny utensils. And after a few drinks, the actress couldn’t resist the urge to peel off the ornaments. ” I got drunk at the end of the night and started ripping them off and giving them as presents to people, so that was fun,” she said. “I’m pretty sure that was the point of it—that’s how Miuccia meant for it to go, I’m sure.” Unfortunately, it’s unlikely that Mulligan will be at the Oscars this year, given that Gatsby‘s not nominated, but the next time she is, we’d like a seat at her awards table.

Malaika Firth Heads Home to Kenya

Malaiki Firth

It was a year full of milestones for Malaika Firth, who launched her modeling career with Prada’s Fall ’13 campaign; broke through on the Spring runways; and scored spots in the latest ads for Prada, Burberry, and Valentino. She even walked her first Victoria’s Secret show. All that glamorous work deserves a vacation, and Firth—who currently lives in London—spent her holiday break in Mombasa, Kenya, where she was born and raised before moving to the U.K. at the age of 7. “I hadn’t been back to Kenya in almost three years, so I was super-excited to see how much my hometown had changed for the better, and my beautiful family, of course,” she told Style.com. Below, Firth shared some highlights from her trip.

“I helped my grandma with her restaurant, Porini, and spent time in the kitchen learning a few of her delicious ‘secret’ recipes. Here we are waiting for our food to come!”

“Me with Boko Boko, the restaurant’s resident Seychelles giant tortoise, who is over 200 years old!”

Marc and Katie’s Double Rainbow

-------

The only thing better than one Prada coat is two—and when they’re worn by longtime pals and Miuccia devotees Marc Jacobs and Katie Grand, the wow factor flies off the charts. Sorry, Hudson, but this rivals Cara’s post as the sweetest ‘gram we’ve seen in a while.

Fur All Seasons

Maybe designers just have Polar Vortex on the brain, but judging by the couture catwalks, it seems that furs are here to stay even for warm weather. For all intents and purposes, the counterintuitive trend was started (as so many are) by Miuccia Prada when she showed colorful fur coats and stoles on both Miu Miu‘s and Prada‘s Spring ’13 catwalks. The furry fad continued for Spring ’14, when Michael Kors, Fendi, Dolce & Gabbana, Tom Ford, and, once again, Mrs. Prada swathed their models in fuzzy tops, scarves, and jackets.

Fast-forward to Spring ’14 Couture, where Donatella Versace proposed a cotton-candy-hued fur stole, as well as a lush violet coat, on her catwalk. Bouchra Jarrar also jumped on board, presenting models wrapped in haircalf and fur vests. “Oh, anything goes on the couture runways,” they’ll say. But hear this: Scorching furs are becoming prime red-carpet fodder, too. Just ask Liza Minnelli. Despite the fact that it was 84 degrees in L.A. on Saturday, the enduring style icon arrived at the SAG Awards in a snuggly fur-trimmed cape. Anyway, we thought we’d start spreading the news…

Strike Up the Band

Fall '14's Banded looks

Almost anything Jennifer Lawrence does gets picked up by the Internet, GIF-ed, reblogged, tweeted, and shared twice over. When the Golden Globe winner showed up on the red carpet last Sunday in all her photo-bombing glory, her black banded Spring ’14 Dior Haute Couture gown garnered so much attention that it evolved into a meme overnight. Dubbed “Lawrencing” (though we’d easily have called it something like “Simonsing”), the meme saw online viewers take to social media to showcase their DIY belted creations fashioned from bed sheets, duvets, and, in instances where cats and dogs were involved, “Lawrenced” towels.

While we typically see garments cinched to accentuate the curves of a female body, the Fall menswear collections are proof that holding it together is no longer just a womenswear tactic. Unconventionally placed belts first showed up at MAN when up-and-coming designer Craig Green sent out leather harness-like apparatuses over his languid wares. And when Miuccia gave vests a similar bi-banded treatment on her Prada menswear runway, we couldn’t resist turning on to this unexpected trend. Rick Owens, too, sent suspendered, strap-detailed tunics down his Paris catwalk yesterday. Will fashion-forward gents jump on the bandwagon when fall rolls around? We’ll be keeping our eyes peeled.
