Karlie Kloss and Taylor Swift: Summer Style Style Twins

-------

Celebrity Sightings In New York City - July 14, 2014

Karlie Kloss has more in common with Taylor Swift than a new blond ‘do—it turns out the BFFs have a matching weekend uniform, too. Spotted at Sarabeth’s in Tribeca, their off-duty style seems to consist of simple T-shirts, ladylike black bags, and—what else?—denim. Swift opted for distressed cutoffs, while Kloss gave us serious white jean envy. Both looks epitomized a laid-back summer vibe. For more style inspiration, you can check out our favorite cutoff moments and today’s brand-new shopping guide dedicated to another summer favorite: chambray shirts.

An Early Glimpse at Tonight’s Secret Victoria’s Secret Model Lineup

-------

Victoria's Secret rehersal

Walking the annual Victoria’s Secret extravaganza is a milestone in any model’s career. After all, it’s as much about lighting up the stage with your personality (not to mention dance moves—who could forget Jourdan Dunn doing the robot last year?) as it is about having a killer body, and being able to smile while strutting with a pair of thirty-pound wings on your back. While there’s no way to confirm exactly who will be appearing on the VS catwalk this evening alongside Taylor Swift, we’ve come up with an educated guess based on social media clues gathered over the past week, as well as shots from yesterday’s rehearsal (like the one above, featuring Sara Sampaio, Martha Hunt, Jasmine Tookes, and Leva Laguna working the runway).

Victoria's secret

Of course there are bound to be appearances by veteran Angels such as Adriana Lima (it will be her fourteenth time participating in the show), Candice Swanepoel, Alessandra Ambrosio, Behati Prinsloo, Doutzen Kroes, Lily Aldridge, Karlie Kloss, and Cara Delevingne. [Regrettably, Miranda Kerr announced she will be ending her contract with the lingerie megalith to pursue other projects.] Those aforementioned supers are all but givens at this point, and so it’s the remaining twenty-plus coveted slots—selected by casting director John Pfeiffer—that really get us excited. Style.com has learned that several high fashion runway regulars will be making their VS debuts tonight: Sigrid Agren and Josephine Skriver (both posted snapshots of themselves sporting the official Angels bomber jacket on Instagram), as well as Ming Xi, Maria Borges, Kasia Struss, and Jac. We were even more thrilled to hear that some our top Spring ’14 newcomers including Malaika Firth, Devon Windsor, Cindy Bruno, and Sara Sampaio also beat out dozens of more established girls to earn their first pair of wings.

Hova Plays Hooky

Jay Z and Beyonce

A shade-throwing Taylor Swift, an N’ Sync reunion, and glitzy grillz are just a few of the things we saw at MTV’s 2013 Video Music Awards last night. But perhaps the biggest shocker was the absence of hip-hop’s king and queen, Jay-Z and Beyoncé (though the pair reportedly stepped out for the after-party at the Dream Downtown’s Ph-D). While we’re a bit surprised that the two didn’t turn up to Brooklyn’s Barclays Center—the home of Jay-Z’s Brooklyn Nets—we can appreciate the fact that Miley’s live twerking demonstration was no Marina Abramovic performance.

Runway to Red Carpet: Black and White, but Not a Bit of Boring

-------

Lara Stone in Christopher KaneIt seems the stars picked up on Resort ’14′s black-and-white cues on the red carpet this week. Wednesday afternoon, Taylor Swift mixed and matched Elie Saab separates at a press event in L.A. She paired a white blouse with a sheer lace panel on the front from Fall ’13 with black pleated shorts from the Resort ’13 collection. On the opposite coast, funny girl Tina Fey exited Late Show With David Letterman wearing a black-and-white body-con Reed Krakoff dress with a printed bodice that was perforated at the shoulders.

Tuesday night featured an appearance from model and new mom Lara Stone, who helped hubby David Walliams celebrate his birthday in London while wearing a gray camo minidress from Christopher Kane’s Fall ’13 runway. While she’s technically wearing it on the sidewalk (left), we figure that, when you’re a supermodel, the world’s your red carpet.

That same night, Lily Collins continued to shine on the red carpet at the Berlin premiere of her film The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, in a black Paper London crop top and floor-length Halston Heritage skirt, accented with a chunky gold-chain necklace and gold cuff. Lady Gaga had a very busy Monday, stepping out in four different outfits while traveling to and from several TV and radio appearances throughout the day to promote her new single, “Applause.” To start the day, Mother Monster arrived at ABC’s studio in New York for Good Morning America looking decidedly smart in a conservative (for Gaga, at least) black Balenciaga Resort ’14 frock. Her newly sophisticated style is a welcome change from the queen of sartorial shock. But fans of her more eccentric looks need not fret—she later changed into a white sculpted paper Mathieu Mirano ensemble for her on-screen appearance.

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

Runway to Red Carpet: Queens of Contrast

Kristen Wiig in Prabal Gurung, Michelle Obama in Carolina Herrera,  and Milla Jovovich in Saint Laurent

Over the course of a particularly international week for flashbulb fashion, megawatt personalities turned up the world over in sophisticated, high-contrast (and high-impact) ensembles, each of which stood out against carpets red and step-and-repeats a-branded.

On Sunday, Taylor Swift arrived at the MuchMusic Video Awards in Los Angeles wearing an Hervé Léger by Max Azria Pre-Fall ’13—you guessed it—bandage dress. The peppy songstress accented her cage-like ribbing with a pair of strappy Christian Louboutin sandals.

Things picked up on Tuesday in Paris, where Milla Jovovich sported a Saint Laurent Spring ’13 pewter-sequined column dress and dramatic black chiffon cape (naturally, she looked lovely, but we kind of wish she had topped it all off with the flat-brim Hedi Slimane showed on the catwalk). What occasion could warrant such a theatrical outfit, you might wonder? It was for the Liaisons au Louvre III charity dinner—yes, the same dinner where Diana Ross took the stage. The chanteuse, however, opted for a fittingly fiery red gown. Jetting far east to Beijing, Zhang Ziyi attended the unveiling of Chanel’s “Little Black Jacket” exhibition wearing a simple blouse-and-bloomer combo from the house’s Scottish Pre-Fall ’13 collection. And looping back to the City of Light, funny gal Kristen Wiig attended the opening of her latest flick, Imogene, wrapped in a graphic, artfully draped Prabal Gurung dress—a twist on the techniques used in the designer’s cut-and-curved Fall ’13 military spectacular.

Lastly, Wednesday saw the industry’s highest-profile champion—Michelle Obama—hot-footing in a Carolina Herrera Pre-Fall ’13 number at a dinner in Berlin in honor of her husband. Noirish navy and silvery white whorls complemented the dress’ nipped waist, tulip flare, and ladylike shoulder-bows—FLOTUS appeared as turned out as ever.
