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.

Point. Set. Match: Opening Ceremony Serves up Sportswear with Adidas

-------

Last summer, just in time for the London Olympics, Opening Ceremony teamed up with Adidas to create a capsule range of swimming and cycling apparel. Humberto Leon and Carol Lim so enjoyed the sporty experience that they’ve joined forces with the brand again and released a second installment of the athletic collaboration. On Saturday, Leon and Lim invited friends such as Rita Ora and Alessandra Balazs to celebrate the collection with a game of Ping-Pong at SPiN at the Standard in Downtown L.A. “Carol and I both played tennis in high school, and now we’re obsessed with Ping-Pong. This collaboration is the Racket collection,” Leon said of the range, which also includes running separates and shoes. The wares are reinterpretations of Adidas Originals and boast a nineties feel with an OC twist. “We’re very tight, but we’re both supercompetitive,” the designer said of he and Lim as he geared up to play longtime friend, and frequent OC collaborator, Spike Jonze. And after beating Leon in the final set, Jonze accepted his victory. “I beat Humberto for the very first time tonight,” he told Style.com. But he couldn’t take too much credit for the win—the filmmaker joked that Leon’s appreciation for SPiN’s spring cocktails worked in his favor.
