In the days leading up to the Golden Globes, L.A.-based celebrity superstylist Elizabeth Stewart is giving Style.com an exclusive behind-the-scenes account of what it takes to dress Hollywood’s hottest starlets. This season, she’s working with Best Actress nominee Jessica Chastain, Les Misérables star Amanda Seyfried, Julia Roberts (who’s presenting), and Cody Horn on their red-carpet looks. Below, Stewart gives us a glimpse at the last leg of her styling process, and, of course, shows us the actresses’ final looks.

I start the day with Cody Horn so we can find her Globes dress. As usual with Cody, it’s the first one we try on. We try some more for good measure (here she tries a Ralph Lauren classic black gown with a vintage YSL necklace). There is Ana sewing in the background!
Then I meet Freida Pinto at the Roger Vivier suite to do a quick fitting and pull some shoes and bags. Freida loves color and is always telling me about great Indian designers. Here, we’re having a laughing fit with Anne Crawford from Vivier (we all get punchy this time of year) and selecting bags with Denise Kim from Vivier. We grab lunch while we are there. The PRs have come to realize that if they don’t feed us stylists, we don’t have time to eat!
Next, I meet a designer downstairs who has flown in with Oscar sketches. Then I head home to meet Kristin Davis, dropping off some shoes to Salma Hayek for her Globes dress on the way. When Kristin Davis comes by, we sit on the floor and gab while choosing bags. I’ve styled her for 12 years, people! That’s a lot of history. I love how she is intently studying this Vivier bag. That’s the one! Youssef Marquis from Givenchy happened to come by at the same time. Those are his feet.

D-day: the day before the Globes! It starts off with some serious multitasking. Here I am making pancakes for my son, Ben, and his friend Diego, while simultaneously communicating with Jessica Chastain, who is packing in NY, and texting with the moms at my daughter Ivy’s volleyball tournament, which I am missing. They are winning at least!
First stop of the day is Amanda Seyfried’s. Youssef from Givenchy has flown in her Globes dress and his tailor Ana (my tailor is also named Ana!). We fit the dress, try Fred Leighton jewelry that Katie pulled while we were in NY, and Youssef shows off the shirt Riccardo Tisci made for him. It has Youssef’s puppy on it! We also squeeze in a quick SAG fitting and look at sketches. Continue Reading “Red-Carpet Ready: Elizabeth Stewart’s Golden Globes Diary” »
The icon that is Marilyn Monroe is having (yet another) fashion moment. Last week, Chopard exhibited never-before-seen prints of the late actress during its holiday party, and now, she’s re-emerged as the inspiration behind Bruno Frisoni’s Limited-Edition Rendez-Vous collection for Roger Vivier. “Marilyn is the essence of femininity whilst embodying sexuality,” said Frisoni of his muse. “It is my hope that I have created a collection that can express the innocent yet sensual nature that Marilyn does so well.”
The designer’s limited edition accessories, like sequin and lace heels and an exploding poppy clutch, have a certain delicate-meets-saucy allure. But it’s the rosebud handbag, garnished with a bright pink smooch, that feels the most “Marilyn.”
Frisoni notes that the house’s history also provided a few notes of inspiration, particularly the prism shape, which he describes as a key emblem of Roger Vivier. “I wanted to give a fairy-tale accent and a little extreme luxury to our most iconic pieces,” said Frisoni. It’s hard to get more luxe than the designer’s crystal-covered prism clutch, which, along with the rest of the range, will make its international debut in Roger Vivier’s Miami boutique on December 15. The traveling collection will land in New York on January 8.
For the first time ever, Roger Vivier is debuting a collection of bags and shoes without the brand’s signature buckle: Prismick. Instead, the label’s creative director, Bruno Frisoni, used leather-on-suede appliqués in a variety of colors for a 3-D effect, a look that was inspired by his passion for art and contemporary architecture. To show off the Prismick collection, Roger Vivier asked stylish women around the globe, including Amanda Hearst (top), Fernanda Niven (middle), and Bettina Prentice (below) to pose with one of the new pieces in the setting of their choosing. (Hearst opted for the Brooklyn Bridge; Niven for an organic garden in Brooklyn; and Prentice at Haunch of Venison Gallery). The three will be on hand tonight in New York to launch the portrait series at Vivier’s Madison Avenue store. Their compatriots from farther afield will be on display, too: Photographers also shot Marta Ferri, Fatima Bhutto, Harumi Klossowski, India Mahdavi, and more in the U.K., Italy, France, and the Far East.
