Runway to Red Carpet: Celebs Embrace “Summer Blacks,” and Three New Trendsetters

-------

080914_Runway_To_Red_Carpet-blogIf you haven’t heard yet, “summer blacks” (©Style.com) are in. Not only has the tried-and-true trend cropped up in the streets, the recent Resort collections, and the Style.com office, but it’s also been making frequent appearances on the red carpet. A glowing Rosamund Pike, who’s pregnant with her second child, chose a black, one-shouldered pleated Prada baby-doll dress for the Berlin premiere of Hector and the Search for Happiness on Tuesday. Heidi Klum rocked a shimmering, form-fitting Roberto Cavalli LBD for Wednesday’s America’s Got Talent postshow event in New York. And the next day, Marion Cotillard took to the red carpet in a black wool Dior dress from the Fall ’14 runway at the London premiere of Two Days, One Night.

While a lot of celebs played it safe this week and stuck to trusty styles that couldn’t fail, a trio of relatively unknown ladies caught our eye. They might not be household names just yet, but these fresh faces piqued our interest with standout styles. On Monday, What If actress Mackenzie Davis stepped out in a look from Nicolas Ghesquiè
re’s Fall ’14 Louis Vuitton collection for the film’s New York premiere. Elsewhere in the city, Charlotte Le Bon posed on the red carpet in a sheer, lace-paneled white frock from red-carpet favorite Elie Saab’s Pre-Fall ’14 lineup at Monday night’s premiere of her new film, The Hundred-Foot Journey. The following evening, Hannah Tointon turned heads in a pale pink satin Spring ’14 Prabal Gurung sheath at the world premiere of The Inbetweeners 2 in London. Needless to say, these Hollywood freshmen are off to a promising start. We’ll be watching, ladies.

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

Runway to Red Carpet: An Ongoing Fairy Tale and a Newcomer Worth Watching

-------

Natalie Portman Shanghai International Film FestivalThe glamour squad was out in full force on this week’s red carpets. The leading ladies of Maleficent continued to take sartorial cues from their characters at the film’s premiere in Tokyo. Elle Fanning donned an ivory Fall ’14 Alexander McQueen gown fit for a princess, while Angelina Jolie stepped out in a black, figure-hugging custom black velvet Atelier Versace cocktail dress.

As you are by now well aware, Beyoncé and Jay Z kicked off their highly anticipated On the Run tour on Wednesday, and per the usual, the couple’s custom costumes come courtesy of top designers, including Elie Saab, Givenchy, Diesel’s Nicola Formichetti, and Tom Ford. Queen Bey sizzled in her opening outfit, a plunging black Atelier Versace bodysuit with black sequined netting.

Meanwhile, in Shanghai, stars were dressed to the nines for the International Film Festival’s closing events on Sunday. Natalie Portman chose a black silk gown with a printed bodice fresh from Dior’s Resort ’15 runway for the occasion. Earlier in the day, Nicola Peltz walked the red carpet in a white silk and lace Giambattista Valli Fall ’13 Haute Couture gown at the premiere of Transformers: Age of Extinction. The Hollywood rookie flew onto our radar this week as she attended press events in wares by mega designers including Dolce & Gabbana, Balenciaga, Saint Laurent, and Stella McCartney, to name a few. We’ll be keeping our eyes on this one.

Runway to Red Carpet: Summer Motifs and Bright Whites

062114_Runway_To_Red_Carpet_blogStars were in a sunny state of mind this week, with highlights consisting of summery motifs and fresh hues. Kiernan Shipka set the tone in a pale pink peplum Marni dress with jeweled embellishments at the Much Music Video Awards in Toronto on Sunday.

Gowns on Thursday’s Critics’ Choice Television Awards red carpet were literal interpretations of the summertime theme. Lizzy Caplan stepped out in Valentino’s Pre-Fall ’14 gown decked with colorful butterflies, while Diane Kruger chose a floral Elie Saab Spring ’14 Haute Couture number. Chloë Grace Moretz went for a less obvious form of florals, donning a black-and-white frock printed with a wire-frame digital 3-D image of a flower from Christopher Kane’s Resort ’14 science-inspired lineup at Coach’s summer party on Tuesday in New York.

Fresh summer white also seemed to be a theme this week, with several notables choosing the color for a variety of events. Michelle Dockery selected a plunging Antonio Berardi sheath for the Cartier Queen’s Cup polo final in Windsor, U.K., while recent French Open champ Maria Sharapova opted for a croc-stamped, double-breasted sheath from Antonio Berardi’s Spring ’14 runway for the WTA Pre-Wimbledon Party in London. Natalie Portman also went for the trend, choosing a silk number with a cotton basque from Dior’s latest Resort ’15 runway for the Miss Dior exhibition opening in Shanghai.

Runway to Red Carpet: Babes on Broadway and a Splash of Feminine Flair

tilda swintonNew York was graced with plenty of glitz this week when musically inclined stars took to the red carpet for Sunday night’s Tony Awards. A slew of silver-screen stars came out to show their support, with notables including Kate Mara, Emmy Rossum, Lucy Liu, and Maggie Gyllenhaal in attendance. Rossum, who is no stranger to the stage, turned up in a silver silk Ralph Lauren Pre-Fall ’14 gown. Liu was also a highlight in a Vivienne Westwood number that offered a fresh riff on the tuxedo.

On Saturday, Jaime King smoldered at Spike TV’s Guys Choice Awards, stepping out in a saucy black suede Emilio Pucci minidress with a web of crystal embellishments. Rihanna unsurprisingly took home the evening’s (somewhat degrading) Most Desirable Woman accolade, and donned a simple yet elegant black vintage John Galliano silk slipdress to accept her trophy.

Tilda Swinton, who, let’s face it, looks flawless in pretty much anything, walked the red carpet in a decidedly feminine burgundy Schiaparelli Couture for the premiere of Snowpiercer during the Los Angeles Film Festival. With structured hips and a form-fitting silhouette, the dress was an unlikely but stunning choice for the oft-androgynous actress.

Runway to Red Carpet: The Stars Shine Post-Cannes and Miley Covers Up

-------

Elle FanningFor the past two weeks, all eyes have been glued on the red carpets of the Cannes Film Festival, but the post-Cannes fashion has been packed with well-dressed Hollywood elite, too. On Tuesday, A Million Ways to Die in the West costars Amanda Seyfried and Charlize Theron kicked off their press tour across the pond with a photo call in London. The duo posed in a pair of LBDs—Seyfried chose a gold-embroidered Pre-Fall ’14 Alexander McQueen mini, while Theron opted for a Stella McCartney frock with exaggerated sleeves.

On Wednesday, the leading ladies of Maleficent looked to their characters for sartorial inspiration. At the film’s world premiere in Hollywood, leading villainess Angelina Jolie stepped out in a black Atelier Versace ball gown, while Elle Fanning looked every part the princess in a lilac beaded Elie Saab Spring ’14 Haute Couture gown.

In a rare move, Miley Cyrus chose a conservative and—dare we say it—sophisticated ball gown for a performance during the World Music Awards in Monte Carlo, Monaco. Her Giambattista Valli Fall ’12 Haute Couture was covered in delicate flowers, another unlikely move for the sassy songstress. If you’re like us and are hoping this is a sign of a new leaf for Miley, don’t count on it—she was back to her scantily clad, tongue-wagging self during a concert the next day.
