Runway to Red Carpet: Suited Stars and a Musical Hem

-------

Rachel McAdamsAlthough this proved to be a quieter week on the red carpet than most, those who did hit the town came out strong. As Beyoncé’s world tour pushes on, we’ve continued to envy her custom-made wardrobe. On Saturday, she added Gucci to the designer lineup, with a lust-worthy top-and-pants ensemble inspired by the Spring ’12 collection. Rachel McAdams looked stunning (as usual) at Thursday night’s London premiere of her film About Time. The copper-coiffed star chose a long-sleeve, floor-grazing Roksanda Ilincic gown from the Resort ’14 collection. It was nipped at the waist with an iridescent belt.

On-screen mother-daughter duo Amanda Seyfried and Sharon Stone continued their Lovelace-premiere circuit with Monday night’s L.A. screening. Seyfried shimmered in a metallic brown-and-gold Gucci mini while Stone opted for a sharp all-black Salvatore Ferragamo ensemble, pairing tailored pants with a tuxedo jacket and leather loafers. That same evening, across the pond, Chloë Moretz traded in her superhero cape for a striped Viktor & Rolf suit from the Resort ’14 lineup at the photo call for her film Kick-Ass 2. The 16-year-old finished off the look with a pair of black Mary Janes, which gave the grown-up outfit a fresh, youthful touch.

Laura Carmichael—or, as Downton Abbey fans might know her, Lady Edith—also embraced a playful look in L.A. On Tuesday, she wore a black Moschino Cheap and Chic shift with a piano-key hemline to PBS History’s photo call. We’re not sure the Dowager Countess of Grantham would have approved, but we sure do.

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

What Playboy Looks Like To Bob Dylan

-------


Having faced allegations of plagiarism after his last show of paintings, Bob Dylan—he of “Blowin’ in the Wind”—confronted the issue head-on for his new one: Revisionist Art: Thirty Works by Bob Dylan, which opens tonight at New York’s Gagosian branch on Madison Avenue, riffs on the theme of appropriation. Like, for example, Playboy Magazine: Sharon Stone (2011-12), above, which borrows elements from the pulp press and the legendary men’s magazine. (Lest you be tempted to call it mere appropriation and not art, recall that it is, at the very least, an improvement on the actual June 1985 cover of Playboy, which featured eighties tabloid sensation Roxanne Pulitzer and a trumpet.) It may be news to Sharon Stone that she’s appearing on the magazine cover (especially since the woman pictured doesn’t appear to be her), but the more pressing question may be, who’s the phantom subscriber? Here’s to you, Mrs. Rosenhorn!

Revisionist Art runs through January 12, 2013 at Gagosian Gallery, Madison Avenue, gagosian.com.

Cameron Diaz Joins The Tag Team, Tom Ford’s New Ultra-Luxe Frames, And More…

-------

Cameron Diaz is the new brand ambassador for Tag Heuer, as well as the muse for the brand’s new Link Lady collection. “The Link Lady is modern, sexy, and elegant, and I’m equally comfortable wearing it on the red carpet or in my day-to-day life,” says Diaz. [WWD]

Rihanna’s latest ad campaign film for Emporio Armani Underwear and Armani Jeans is just as we would expect—über sexy. The pop star shows off a new bra and panty set from the label as she writhes about in bed. [Fashion Etc.]

How much are you willing to shell out for a pair of premium sunglasses? A mere $2,950 is what Tom Ford is hoping. The designer has “the finest quality gold-plated metal and buffalo horn” frames on offer in luxury stores and Tom Ford boutiques starting in April. [Styleite]

Sharon Stone has been announced as the host of this year’s amfAR Inspiration Gala in Brazil. The event will feature tributes to Mario Testino, who will receive the Piaget Award of Inspiration, and Estée Lauder group president John Demsey. [WWD]

Dita, Meet Your Makers

-------

Before there was Dita Von Teese, there were Kitty West, Sherry Britton, and Blaze Starr. These original ladies of burlesque had their heyday, too—albeit several decades ago and minus the front-row fashion seats—and actress/producer Leslie Zemeckis was out to highlight their triumphs via her new documentary, Behind the Burly Q. “There’s this misconception that they were just strippers,” Zemeckis explained at the film’s screening at MoMA last night. “But it was this big, beautiful variety/vaudeville show. They really had this art, and they really tried to do something with their lives.” Famed director and husband Robert Zemeckis was also on hand but was happy to take a back seat for the evening. “Yeah, I sometimes give her a few suggestions, but of course, she’s always right,” he smartly deflected with a smile.

Clad in a burlesque-inspired metallic brocade gown with a high slit, naturally, the fairer Zemeckis also donned a crown for the evening. Not that she was playing diva, exactly—the crown had originally belonged to Britton, a burlesque star from the forties and fifties, known for her stunning looks and bright but short career. Just staying in character, then. Joining her in that was the evening’s co-host, Sharon Stone, in above-the-elbow leather gloves that looked perfect for a slow peel-off. “I’ve always liked gloves and worn a lot of gloves,” she insisted. “I thought they’d be fun to wear this evening.” But not that kind of fun—the gloves, like the rest of her outfit, stayed on all night.

L.A. Eyeworks: 30 Years Young

-------

“A face is like a work of art. It deserves a great frame.” That’s the trademark tag that West Coast optical brand l.a. Eyeworks has used for the past 30 years under the many famous faces in its iconic campaigns. They started with Go-Go Belinda Carlisle in 1979 and through the years have featured Andy Warhol, Sharon Stone, John Waters, Amy Sedaris, Divine, and RuPaul—a diverse and talented cast of characters who have all had some deeper connection to the brand. “Many of the stars in the campaign are the result of an organic relationship,” insists Gai Gherardi, who co-founded the label with Barbara McReynolds. But their 30th birthday isn’t all nostalgia and glancing backward. Their special birthday box set of limited-edition cleaning cloths, out in September, involves a new creative crew: artists Gary Panter, Catherine Opie, and Barbara Kruger.
