Runway to Red Carpet: Elegant Award Shows and a Dressed-Down Film Fest

-------

Brit MarlingBetween the continued Awards Season craze and the laid-back glam of the Sundance Film Festival, the celebrity set had plenty of red-carpet moments this week. America’s new darling (fashion and otherwise) Lupita Nyong’o and Helen Mirren, who both picked up trophies at Saturday’s Screen Actors Guild Awards, strutted their stuff at the Producers Guild Awards the following evening. Nyong’o chose a figure-hugging Stella McCartney dress with an asymmetrical shoulder, while Mirren opted for a long-sleeved silver Fall ’13 Elie Saab gown embroidered with crystals. The ladies were joined on Sunday’s red carpet by Nyong’o's 12 Years a Slave castmate Sarah Paulson, who donned a sequined Marc Jacobs frock with floral embellishments from the designer’s memorable Spring ’14 runway.

While many celebrities opt for the casual sweater-and-jeans look during the chilly Sundance Film Festival, actresses Elizabeth Banks and Brit Marling’s red-carpet appearances struck the perfect balance between comfort and glamour. Banks paired a black-and-white grid-patterned Spring ’14 Ralph Lauren dress with black knee-high boots for an event on Tuesday, and Marling chose a black Proenza Schouler pantsuit with chalk-white details from the brand’s Spring ’14 lineup at the premiere of I Origins on Saturday. Marling continued to be a red-carpet highlight throughout the week, stepping out in Christopher Kane and Mulberry at another pair of events. No doubt, this duo is upping the festival’s sartorial game.

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

At Home With Proenza Schouler

Proenza Schouler Spring '14 Ad Campaign

Domesticity was a strong theme in Proenza Schouler’s artful Spring ’14 collection, so it makes sense that designers Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez chose their Massachusetts home as the setting for their new David Sims-lensed campaign, which breaks exclusively here. “We wanted to layer in a more private and personal tone to the campaign this season, which David has captured in a series of abstracted portraits and atmospheric landscapes shot on location,” the designers told Style.com. The brand’s Spring stars, Charlotte Lindvig and Harleth Kuusik, appear in Proenza’s cleverly constructed pleated wares, their hair blowing in the Northeastern wind. The leafy, rural backdrop only adds to the ethereal mood. Have a first look at Sims’ Spring snaps (above), and catch the debut of Proenza’s heady campaign film—a collaboration between Sims and Eddie the Wheel—below.

Ecco Domani Toasts NYFW’s New Guard

-------

Lindsay Degen

New York fashion week is fast approaching, and things just got a little more exciting for three young designers. For the past thirteen years, Ecco Domani Wines of Italy has awarded a trio of $25,000 grants to up-and-coming New York brands that embrace “good taste” and “everyday style,” and today it announced its 2014 winners: Timo Weiland (designed by Timo Weiland, Alan Eckstein, and Donna Kang), DEGEN by Lindsay Degen (who, pictured left, designed some clever body stockings and socks for the 2013 Victoria’s Secret runway), and Novis by Jordana Warmflash. While the labels are each very distinct—Weiland is known for his romantic-meets-downtown style, DEGEN specializes in playful handmade knitwear, and Novis favors bold colors and vintage-inspired silhouettes—Ecco Domani sees each one as a key player in the future of fashion. If past recipients are any indication (Proenza Schouler, Derek Lam, Altuzarra, and Alexander Wang are just a few), these on-the-rise designers have a very bright future ahead.

Juice, Fast: Orange Emerges as the Surprise Color Trend of the Moment

-------

Now Trending: OrangePantone may have named Radiant Orchid—a dusty magenta—its color of the year for 2014, but judging from the latest Pre-Fall lineups, designers beg to differ. The hue that’s cropped up time and time again is orange, from true, juicy shades to red-tinged bricks and rusts. Pastel outerwear was all the rage in 2013, but now Narciso Rodriguez, Joseph Altuzarra, and Gucci’s Frida Giannini have pumped things up with tailored coats in spicy shades. Proenza Schouler added fire to the tonal trend with wrap dresses and separates done in paprika-colored buttery suede. Bottega Veneta’s Tomas Maier did his part, too, showing a cozy Creamsicle sweater and complementary tangerine trousers (and on It redhead Magdalena Jasek, no less). Will menswear designers take up the torch for Fall ’14? Tune in this January to find out.

On the Fringe

-------

Fringe at GucciWith the holidays in full swing, we’re in a festive spirit here at Style.com. And when it comes to party looks, we’re feeling for fringe—the stuff was all over the Spring ’14 runways. Imagine twirling on the dance floor in the white leather jacket from Altuzarra, or shimmying about in Emilio Pucci’s glam poncho. Decorative tassels added an artisanal touch at Dries Van Noten, Marc Jacobs, and Alexander Wang, while dense, carpetlike shag turned up at Proenza Schouler and 3.1 Phillip Lim. If a full-on fringy outfit is too much for you, get the look with a bohemian handbag similar to the ones we spotted at Céline, Valentino, and Gucci.

Here, a slideshow of our favorite fringed pieces.
