Runway to Red Carpet: Rihanna (Also Other Stars) Steal the Front-Row Spotlight

-------

Miu Miu

When it came to star sightings, the front rows at the Fall ’14 shows gave the Oscars a run for its money. The celebrity set came out strong this fashion season, supporting the designers who dress them for so many of their red-carpet moments. Lupita Nyong’o, who brought home an Academy Award this past weekend, was spotted in the front rows of Miu Miu and Calvin Klein Collection, both of which helped her top best-dressed lists during her promo tour for 12 Years a Slave, as well as the awards season. At Miu Miu, she turned up in a burgundy jacket with an embellished collar by the label and a light pink miniskirt, while for Calvin Klein Collection, she donned a pale knit dress from Pre-Fall ’14. Jason Wu’s debut at Hugo Boss in New York also brought out a bevy of stars, including Gwyneth Paltrow, Reese Witherspoon, and Diane Kruger, who led the standing ovation at the show’s close.

Notables were also spotted in the front row of Burberry Prorsum‘s London show, a favorite among Hollywood’s elite. Naomie Harris looked on in a long, navy velvet devoré and a green gown. In Milan, Jeremy Scott’s first runway show for Moschino brought out celebs known for their playful fashion choices. Rita Ora and Katy Perry were among the front-row dwellers in looks from the Pre-Fall ’14 lineup.

Despite all of the big names who attended the Paris shows (including Jared Leto, Keira Knightley, and Kanye West), all eyes were on Rihanna. RiRi stole the spotlight, turning up at all of the biggest shows like Chanel, Dior, Givenchy, Miu Miu, Lanvin, and Stella McCartney, just to name a few. While it’s difficult to choose a highlight from her flawless arsenal of looks, we were particularly taken by the Melitta Baumeister, Hyein Seo, and Adam Selman mash-up she wore to Comme des Garçons; her gray peplum jacket and fur shrug at Lanvin; and the sexy LBD she paired with stockings and a cherry Pre-Fall ’14 mink coat at Dior. She was a street-style photographer’s dream from start to finish.

Here, more front-row highlights from the Fall ’14 shows.

Southern Comfort

-------

“I didn’t do much reading growing up, or movie watching,” confessed the southern-born Matthew McConaughey at yesterday evening’s Cinema Society screening of Mud. “We were not a media culture family. We were storytellers.” That’s something he has in common with his latest character: Mud, the star of Jeff Nichols’ new film of the same name. “He learned how the world works through nature—from the land, the water, the stars,” McConaughey told Style.com. “He’s not someone who got book-learned or schooled, so he’s remained incredibly innocent in his heart,” added the actor, who said that he went camping alone for a few days to prepare for the role.

Mud is a gritty Southern yarn that, in addition to McConaughey, features the recently headline-making Reese Witherspoon as the love that got away, and Tye Sheridan and Jacob Lofland as young boys on a Twain-esque coming-of-age journey up the Mississippi.

During the after-screening party at Harlow, Sarah Paulson, who plays a desperate houseboat-wife, divulged that she signed on to the film for one simple reason: “I didn’t have to wear makeup. Not a drop. And I thought, ‘It doesn’t matter how tired I look, because I’m playing such a tired mom!’” Maybe so, but Paulson, who starts shooting her next project—American Horror Story: Coven—in July, was definitely not in character last night. The actress admitted that getting to wear a girly RED Valentino dress to Mud‘s fête was a treat.

On Our Radar: Ippolita Bags

-------

The Florence-born jeweler Ippolita—one-name only, please—has had the likes of Kate Hudson, Halle Berry, Reese Witherspoon, and more wearing her elegant 18-karat gold and sterling jewelry for 12 years now. Soon, the red-carpet set will see the designer’s new handbags (prices start at $1,495), too. Made of python and suede and topped with brass and wood detailing, the new accessories will launch at the same time as her new Madison Avenue store, her first-ever retail location. The full collection consists of six different color combinations; my favorite is above.

The Fruit Of Her Labors

-------

Leslie Fremar is routinely voted one of the most powerful stylists in Hollywood—powerful enough, it seems, to get even star clients like Reese Witherspoon and Charlize Theron to wear Fruit of the Loom. The trick: She designed it herself. The new collection of Fremar’s line of French-seamed tees, sinuous tanks, long cardigans, and more launched yesterday at New York’s Beauty & Essex. The rationale for the line is simple: “There were cheap T-shirts, and then there were really expensive T-shirts, $200 T-shirts, $300 T-shirts,” she says. “I wanted to have the luxury of really soft cotton with a perfect fit that’s affordable”—but the possibilities are many. “I always like some casual element in whatever I’m wearing,” Fremar explains, “because I like to be comfortable.” Even at the most rarified of events? “Fruit of the Loom on the red carpet?” She pauses. “That’s great. If you want to wear a T-shirt with a ball skirt, I won’t say no.”

Leslie Fremar for Fruit of the Loom is now available at Bloomingdales, www.bloomingdales.com.

Who Was Best Dressed At The White House Correspondents’ Dinner?

-------

Maybe the much talked-about new White House social secretary, Jeremy Bernard, had something to do with it, or perhaps it’s because it’s an election year, but this weekend’s 98th annual Correspondents’ Association Dinner was its most star-studded ever. Everyone from Reese Witherspoon and Charlize Theron to Kim Kardashian and Lindsay Lohan made appearances, mingling with the President and the First Lady, as well as the usual array of politicians and journalists. At the top of our best-dressed list stand Kate Hudson in a dazzling purple Jenny Packham gown, Dakota Fanning (pictured) in an embellished, sky blue Prada number, and Elizabeth Banks, who sported a bright red Antonio Berardi column with a peplum waist.
