Insta-Gratification

-------

In the age of Instagram, all it takes is a smartphone to achieve a photo finish, be it filtered or #nofilter-ed. That’s why Style.com’s social media editor, Rachel Walgrove, is rounding up our favorite snaps and bringing them into focus. See below for today’s top shots.

Friday, January 31

In celebration of its #ArtMatters window installation, Bergdorf Goodman has surrendered its account to the visual masters behind the #BGWindows.

It’s hard to pick just one. Riccardo Tisci went on a sharing spree, uploading new photos of Erykah Badu, the face of Givenchy’s Spring ’14 ads.

If our flooded e-mail inboxes weren’t an indication, this photo from the MBFW account reminds us that fashion week is just a few days away.

Cheers to the weekend. Make this one count.

And let us say, Amen. Continue Reading “Insta-Gratification” »

Which Oscar Nominee Will Steal the Red-Carpet Spotlight?

-------

Cate BlanchettAfter watching the Golden Globes last weekend, the Oscar nominee list feels a bit like déjà vu. American Hustle, 12 Years a Slave, Blue Jasmine, and Her, all of which won big at the Globes, might be adding a few more golden statues to their collection. Christian Bale and Amy Adams are both up for Best Actor and Actress for American Hustle, while Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence are nominated for Best Supporting Actor and Actress. 12 Years a Slave, which won the Best Motion Picture, Drama, at the Globes, will be stiff competition for its fellow nominees that also include Gravity, Captain Phillips, Nebraska, Philomena, Dallas Buyers Club, and The Wolf of Wall Street.

Of course, we’re even more anxious to see who wins on the red carpet. After an exciting Golden Globes turnout, we’re hopeful that the Oscars will inspire some similar sartorial risk-taking. Emma Watson and Jennifer Lawrence both looked stunning in Dior—Watson in a backless dress over cigarette pants, Lawrence in an ethereal white strapless gown—and Amy Adams stole the show in a plunging crimson Valentino. (She said she was inspired by her American Hustle character’s wardrobe.) Rising star Lupita Nyong’o made several Best Dressed lists in her bright red caped gown by Ralph Lauren (red was a big color at the event), and Cate Blanchett, who won Best Actress, Drama for Blue Jasmine, wore a divine black lace Armani Privé number. The stars looked forward-thinking and modern—there wasn’t a mermaid silhouette or overembellished prom dress in sight. Can they keep it up on Oscar night?

See below for a list of the most competitive categories’ nominees, and tune in to ABC on March 2 to watch the ceremony.

Yea, Nay, or Eh: Miley Cyrus in Zuhair Murad at the Academy Awards

-------


Listen, we know Ms. Cyrus wrote a song in a nominated cartoon—sorry, animated feature—about a runaway dog or something, but don’t you think that’s an awfully big dress for someone to be wearing who doesn’t really have a reason to be at the Oscars in the first place? There’s just a lot going on with that outfit. You’ve got the tiers, the seashell belt, the jewel encrusting…we mean, the bling goes on. And while Miley pulled of the princess look better than others on the red carpet (ahem, Sarah Jessica), we still think it was a bit over the top. Are we behind the times? Is she totally working it? Do we need to watch more Hannah Montana to get down with it? Tell us.

Beverly Hills’ Crystal Method

-------

Nadja Swarovski’s pre-Oscar celebration on the roof of the Thompson hotel in Beverly Hills attracted designers like Alexander McQueen, Viktor & Rolf, Jonathan Saunders, and Doo-Ri Chung. Well, their designs, anyway. Swarovski collections by McQueen et al., among others, were displayed poolside Wednesday night, where gem fans like Kate Walsh, Liz Goldwyn, and Angie Harmon took them in. “The more people discover our product, the more interpretations of Swarovski are out there,” Swarovski said, in town from London to attend Sunday’s Oscars. “I’m going to the ceremony because I have to check out the Swarovski curtain, which weighs three tons and was designed by David Rockwell.” Crystal leftovers from the curtain have been recycled into handbags for the Academy Award winners—a gift even eco-loving Leo DiCaprio could love. Other guests, like Jen Rade, clad in L.A.M.B. with Swarovski crystals, were ready for a post-Oscar break. “I’m drinking red wine to get through,” laughed the stylist best known for dressing Angelina Jolie. “I’m counting the days and hours until it’s over.”
