Runway to Red Carpet: A Pop Art Ka-Pow! and an Erdem Hat Trick

-------

Tom Hanks and Rita WilsonOne designer won the hearts of red-carpet walkers this week, and that was Erdem Moralioglu. First up was Hailee Steinfeld, who arrived at a photo call for her new film, Ender’s Game, in Berlin on Sunday afternoon in a playful Erdem Resort ’14 frock layered with black lace and white floral appliqués. On Monday, Clémence Poésy donned a black Erdem dress adorned with floral appliqués and ostrich feathers, from his Fall ’13 runway, to the MIPCOM 2013 party in Cannes. And the following evening, Naomi Watts chose a fitted floral number from Erdem for the 2013 Take Home a Nude Benefit Art Auction in New York.

But other designers had a chance to shine in front of the step-and-repeats, too. On Wednesday night, Rita Wilson joined her husband, Tom Hanks, at the London premiere of his new film, Captain Phillips, in a black Fall ’13 Tom Ford dress with a Pop art ka-pow! motif. Nicole Kidman showed some skin in a black Prada halter gown at the Huading Image Awards in Macao, China, on Monday, where she was awarded the statue for Best Global Actress in Motion Pictures. The supersexy dress featured a keyhole cutout on the bodice, and spangly orange flowers that spilled out of the skirt’s side slit. In case anyone was wondering: She’s still got it.

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

a taste of france, on the beach

We consider ourselves connoisseurs when it comes to the business of French dining. Which is why we’re recommending Anisette, a sublime new brasserie in Santa Monica, as the closest you’ll get to Paris on the West Coast. If not for the wood paneling, stained mirrors, checkerboard tile floors, vintage fixtures, and the Edith Piaf soundtrack, then for its classic menu, which includes favorites such as côte de boeuf, French onion soup served with cave-aged Gruyère, a first-rate salade niçoise, and pommes frites served in a cone. Spotted there recently: Cindy Crawford, Rita Wilson, Tom Hanks, and Keanu Reeves. Although there’s no word on whether or not chef Alain Giraud emerged from the kitchen midway through the meal to recount naughty French jokes for them as he did for us and our table of girlfriends. Comedie française? Mais oui, cherie.
