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.

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

Runway to Red Carpet: Spring Has Sprung on the Celeb Circuit

-------

Mexican Film Premiere Of 'Noah'While the temperatures dropped in New York this week, pastels and florals on the celeb circuit made us hopeful that spring is just around the corner. On Wednesday, Elle Fanning looked decidedly grown up in a light blue, belly-baring Wes Gordon Fall ’14 sheath at the 25 Most Powerful Stylists luncheon in L.A. Later that evening, Emmy Rossum braved New York’s chilly temps in a strapless Carolina Herrera Pre-Fall ’14 ball gown with a blue floral print for Art Production Fund’s White Glove Gone Wild gala.

On the premiere circuit, blush tones were the color of choice. Style maven Tilda Swinton attended the L.A. screening of her new film, Only Lovers Left Alive, on Monday in a fringed cream jacket and skirt from Valentino’s Spring ’14 Haute Couture runway. The same night, Jennifer Connelly looked statuesque in a pale Givenchy Fall ’09 Haute Couture gown with pink embellishments for the Mexico City premiere of her new film, Noah. Kristen Bell stepped onto the red carpet on Wednesday in a strapless pink silk J. Mendel Pre-Fall ’14 gown with a high slit for the L.A. premiere of Veronica Mars. The fresh colors and skin-baring frocks made a strong argument for us to shed our coats and embrace spring. Now if only the snow would stop falling in New York.

Wes Anderson’s Affair With Fendi

Tilda Swinton

Fendi lent its talents to Wes Anderson’s latest cinematic confection, The Grand Budapest Hotel, costuming both Edward Norton and Tilda Swinton (yep, that’s her in the middle) for their roles in the film alongside Oscar-winning costume designer Milena Canonero. At press time we can only speculate as to what Prada might think of Anderson’s infidelity, but Miuccia can’t be too upset. After all, Anderson and Fendi do have a history—the house created Gwyneth Paltrow’s now iconic mink for The Royal Tenenbaums.

Beautiful Apparition: Jamie Bochert Croons for NewbarK

-------


“It’s a kind of journey to self-discovery,” explained Floria Sigismondi, the artist who famously directed Tilda Swinton and David Bowie in the rock star’s smash music video “The Stars (Are Out Tonight).” Sigismondi was talking about her Fall ’14 film for the sisters Maryam and Marjan Malakpour’s bare luxury accessories line, NewbarK. The short stars a writhing, slithering Jamie Bochert in the designers’ simple red flats. Making its online premiere exclusively here, the film also serves as the debut of Bochert’s latest musical effort, and features a haunting track from the model-cum-singer-songwriter. “The film was shot in Los Angeles in a house stripped down to its most simplistic form—it seems to emit a lot of ambient vibe,” said Sigismondi of her darkly surrealist offering. “I think this was especially a great opportunity to expand on the idea of non-cohesive images being strung together to create a kind of new reality,” she continued. “Jamie encompassed that character really naturally.”

That Bochert organically embodied Sigismondi’s gothy, abstract vision is no surprise. Bochert’s own artistic output is undeniably in sync with the longtime director’s dreamily sinister aesthetic. “It was inspiring,” commented Bochert. “I felt free and safe because I love Floria’s work, art, and authenticity.”

Eddy Anemian Wins the H&M Design Award

Eddy Anemian's winning collection at the H&M Awards

The winner of the third annual H&M Design Award was unveiled today at Mercedes-Benz Stockholm Fashion Week. The initiative was founded to support and celebrate fashion at its earliest stages and provide mentorship for young designers. This year’s contestants, who represent thirty-two schools across Europe and America, competed for a 50,000 euro cash prize, the chance to develop a collection for H&M, and the opportunity to show their collection to an audience of international press and buyers. Ann-Sofie Johansson, H&M’s creative head of design and a member of the jury, offered, “It is a very inspiring process to work with the Design Award. It’s a difficult decision for us, as we have such a strong start field with such great students. To choose just one of them was very hard. You really have to go with your gut and see who gives you the most wow factor.” The jury—also consisting of fashion designer Erdem Moralioglu, fashion editor of Vogue Italia Sara Maino, Downton Abbey actress Michelle Dockery, executive fashion editor of BritishVogue Serena Hood, H&M’s creative advisor Margareta van den Bosch, and style star Michelle Violy Harper—finally chose the 24-year-old Belgian talent Eddy Anemian from La Cambre in Brussels.

Titled, “They Can Cut All Flowers, They Cannot Keep Spring From Coming” Anemian’s collection was inspired by Tilda Swinton’s character in Luca Guadagnino’s film I Am Love, as well as the French painter Ingres. The range was made up of long strips of floral-print upholstery fabrics that were reconstructed and sewn together into elegant and fluid shapes. This was contrasted with waterproof fabrics cut in flounces to give the effect of marble and ceramics. The silhouettes, meanwhile, were elongated with a strong influence of couture. “I am very happy and very excited to be here, and also looking forward to working with H&M’s very professional team in how to develop my designs into garments for the H&M stores,” Anemian told Style.com post-presentation. “We have only started this process, but I think you will see some of the patterns, fabrics, and shapes translated and developed into new pieces.” We’ll be keeping an eye out for his H&M capsule, which is set to hit stores this fall.
