Kate Middleton: Fashion Maven or Bright Banana?

-------

kate middleton and prince williamContinuing her ongoing royal tour, Kate Middleton donned a vivid yellow Spring ’14 Roksanda Ilincic dress during an appearance at Sydney’s Royal Opera House today. While addressing a crowd, Middleton revealed that Prince William told her the dress makes her look like “a banana.” Poor form, Wills. A few days ago, he also reportedly criticized the Duchess’s emerald Erdem coat for being “too bright.” Considering that Prince William has basically worn a variation of the same tired navy-suit-and-red-tie ensemble every day throughout the tour, he should probably lay off. And seeing as Kate was recently dubbed “normcore,” I also think that, if only for the purpose of being cheeky (or even better, stylistically exciting), Kate should test the waters with a few wild getups. How about some Fall ’14 Moschino? Or, if she wanted to embrace the Brits, Meadham Kirchhoff’s latest looks would be a bold choice. Do it to it, Kate, and show the Prince who’s boss—sartorially speaking.

Marina’s Must-Haves: Roksanda Ilincic’s Belly-Baring Jumpsuit

roksandaOscars weekend is upon us, and it would be great to be in L.A. attending a glamorous after-party, but the reality is I’ll be taking care of my 4-month-old baby. But a girl can dream, can’t she? And if what they say is true, if you get the dress, the occasion will come. I’ve already picked out the dress—or, to be exact, the jumpsuit—for my imaginary after-party: Roksanda Ilincic’s electric orange and black jumpsuit. It feels so fresh and different from any cocktail dress I’ve ever owned. And while I might be in my pj’s this Sunday night, I’m sure I won’t run out of occasions to wear my midriff-baring but demure Roksanda number.

Lulu Kennedy’s Perfect Ten

-------

For a decade now, Lulu Kennedy’s Fashion East has incubated some impressive talent: Gareth Pugh, Marios Schwab, Richard Nicoll, Roksanda Ilincic, and Henry Holland have all come through the one-time raver’s runway training ground. Kennedy commemorated the milestone Thursday night with a raucous launch party at Harvey Nichols for Lulu & Co—a capsule collection by ten of her designer discoveries, each of whom culled one standout dress from Fashion East’s memorable archives for the occasion.

The collection, which will be available at last night’s party locale, got a test run on the designers’ boldfaced friends. Kennedy modeled Jonathan Saunders; Holland paired up with Pixie Geldof; Nicoll outfitted Josephine de la Baume; and Poppy Delevingne poured herself into Gareth Pugh. Kennedy, quizzed on the past decade’s highlights, had trouble stopping at just one. “When Gareth’s ‘lit up’ dress came down the runway at the Electric Ballroom…and when Aggy opened Henry Holland’s show in leather hot pants, with the crowd going nuts…and then, of course, when Victoria Beckham actually turned up at my show.”

At the after-party at Glo Glo’s, Lulu & Co’s designers presented Kennedy with the evening’s anniversary present, a patchwork quilt of fabric from each designer stitched together by Louise Gray. “Somehow, I can’t imagine sleeping in it,” Kennedy said. “I think it will be framed and hung up for all to see at Fashion East. That just seems right.”

Yea, Nay, Or Eh? Machine Woman

-------

Michael Cera’s new romantic comedy, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, had its European premiere in London last night, and though most of the film’s leading ladies (from Anna Kendrick to newcomers Ellen Wong and Mary Elizabeth Winstead) made an appearance, all eyes were on Florence Welch, the fiery front woman of the rising pop act Florence and the Machine. Welch has a solid history of supporting independent designers (she often wears Hannah Marshall, and has done turns in Roksanda Illincic, too), and for the occasion she picked a Fall ’10 tattoo dress by the Australian label Willow, paired with chunky wedge booties. The combination—a bold, printed mini paired with ankle boots—is one we’ve been seeing more and more of lately, and Welch is the perfect example of why: She looks red-carpet ready but not fussy or prissy. What do you think of the look—is this one that should be turning Scott Pilgrim’s head?
