Cara Delevingne Sets Sights on Never Never Land

-------

Cara Delevingne

Just when we thought model-slash-singer was the new model-slash-actress, Cara Delevingne takes the theory to the next level by covering all the bases simultaneously. The model-slash-singer-slash-actress has reportedly landed a small role in Joe Wright’s new adaptation of Peter Pan. Slated to hit theaters in 2015, the film boasts an impressive cast including Amanda Seyfried (as Mary), Hugh Jackman (as Blackbeard), and Rooney Mara (as Tiger Lily). This marks the second time Delevingne and Wright have worked together, the first being the catwalker’s film debut in Anna Karenina. So, what can’t Cara do? She models. She sings. She acts. And if this Burberry moment is any indication, she even flies.

Runway to Red Carpet: And the Award for Most Glamorous Nominee Goes To…

-------

Rooney MaraWith the SAG Award and Golden Globe nominations announced this week, award season is nigh. Between galas, film festivals, and worldwide promo tours for their nominated films, this year’s well-dressed contenders have been pulling out all the sartorial stops. SAG Award and Golden Globe nominee (and this week’s Beauty Essentials spotlight) Cate Blanchett stepped out in a strapless black Spring ’14 Givenchy jumpsuit with a loose, draped bodice at the For the Love of Cinema – IWC Gulf Filmmaker Award ceremony during the Dubai International Film Festival on Saturday. Amy Adams, who is also up for a Best Actress Golden Globe, chose a black Elie Saab Spring ’14 shift with sheer lace panels for the New York premiere of her film American Hustle, which received a Globe nomination of its own.

Rooney Mara, whose film Her is up for a Best Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy, Golden Globe, attended the Oxfam Charity gala during the Dubai Film Festival in a custom white one-shouldered Lanvin gown with a sculptured peplum-like detail on the bodice from the Resort ’14 collection. The same day, SAG Award nominee Claire Danes hosted the Nobel Peace Prize concert in Oslo, Norway, in an embroidered white linen Valentino Resort ’14 gown.

Hollywood newcomer Lupita Nyong’o received a Best Supporting Actress Golden Globe nom for her very first role in a full-length film, 12 Years a Slave, and has been topping best-dressed lists nearly every week of the press tour. On Wednesday, she took to the red carpet at the film’s Paris premiere in a sleeveless red sequined cocktail dress with sheer cutouts from Elie Saab’s Resort ’14 collection. With the bar set high early in her career, we’re excited to see what the future holds for this rising star.

No doubt, it’s a tight race for the title of most glamorous award hopeful. Who do you think deserves the honor? Click through all of this week’s red-carpet highlights, here.

Runway to Red Carpet: Stars Swathed in Spring, and a Flurry of Dior

-------

Carey MulliganWith the last days of fashion month still fresh in our minds (has it really been over two weeks since we left Paris?), we’re already seeing some of the season’s buzzed-about collections on red-carpet A-listers. The New York Film Festival closed this weekend with a screening of Her, and all three of the flick’s screen sirens stepped out in looks fresh off the Spring ’14 runways. Leading lady Amy Adams wore a figure-hugging Spring ’14 Prabal Gurung lavender sheath with a wide, plunging neckline. Olivia Wilde chose a white blouse and khaki palazzo pants from Michael Kors’ Spring ’14 runway, and Rooney Mara opted for a textured leather top and a black and cream pleated skirt bonded with black and silver foil from Proenza Schouler’s Spring ’14 offering. Last but certainly not least, red-carpet newcomer Lupita Nyong’o impressed in a fresh Spring ’14 Miu Miu frock with a kitschy parrot print at the L.A. premiere of her new film, 12 Years a Slave, on Monday evening.

Dior also made a strong showing on the celebrity circuit this week. Allison Williams, Kate Bosworth, and Carey Mulligan all chose frocks from the Parisian house; the latter donned a sunny yellow cocktail dress with a structured bodice. It was refreshing to see the (currently) brunette bombshell, who has been working with neutral tones in her wardrobe and makeup lately, play it up in a vibrant hue and striking red lip.

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

Anarchy In the Met

-------

“Fashion has lost its edge,” said curator Andrew Bolton at a preview of the Met’s upcoming 2013 Punk: Chaos to Couture exhibition yesterday morning. The statement was in response to a query about why the Met chose to explore the rebellious seventies subculture at this particular time. “Punks were so brave and noble. I just think fashion needs an injection of that at the moment,” the curator told Style.com.

If the garments that joined Bolton on the podium during his introduction to the exhibition (looks from McQueen, Chanel, and Rodarte among them) were any indication, punk has been fighting its way into fashion for quite some time—since Zandra Rhodes’s slash- and safety-pin-infused 1977 “Conceptual Chic” collection, to be exact. The new show, explained Bolton, is a prequel to the Met’s 2006 Anglomania and will examine punk as an aesthetic, rather than an attitude. “Punk smashed every convention,” he said. “It prized originality, authenticity, and individualism.” While counterintuitive, these qualities, he said, put punk on the same, or at least a very similar, plane as couture.

Are These Fall Gowns Oscar Material?

-------

Hollywood stylists are forever clambering to keep their celeb clientele in the latest looks fresh off the runways, so there’s little doubt that on Sunday night, we’ll be seeing a few Fall numbers at the Oscars. Compared to many of the ostentatious front-row fixtures at fashion week, most starlets play it safe. (Sorry, Marc, the only actress out there gonzo enough to take your newest lineup for a spin is Helena Bonham Carter). A-listers often opt for classic gowns, like the teal, tie-shouldered number from Oscar de la Renta (the color would be gorgeous with Jessica Chastain’s fiery tresses) or Michael Kors‘ long-sleeved dazzler (pictured), which has Albert Nobbs star Glenn Close’s name written all over it. And with all the attention Rooney Mara attracted at the Calvin Klein show a few weeks back, we wouldn’t be surprised to see her turn up in one of Francisco Costa’s minimal black finale frocks. Many of the heavy hitters won’t be presenting until Paris next week, but it seems some designers have wised up to awards season and are strategically debuting their unseen collections on the red carpet instead of the runway. Case in point: Gwyneth Paltrow at the Emmys, wearing a sheer Emilio Pucci two-piece look that appeared again on the Spring catwalk a few days later. We’re hoping to see a few more of those fashion-forward surprises this weekend.
