Legacy of Style: Fashionable Mother-Daughter Duos, Just in Time for Mother’s Day

-------

Mother's Day“You’re just like your mother.” Many women meet such a comparison with dread, but for those lucky enough to have ultra-stylish mums, it’s a compliment of the highest order. Who wouldn’t want to learn the art of getting dressed from an icon like Kate Moss, Jane Birkin, or Jerry Hall? Having good taste is a birthright for their respective daughters Lila Grace, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Lou Doillon, and Georgia May Jagger, so it comes as no surprise that many of these girls have become fashion darlings in their own right. In honor of Mother’s Day this Sunday, we rounded up twenty of our favorite mother-daughter pairs. From the quintessentially French Roitfelds to the pinup-worthy Dellal clan to the edgy power duo that is Lisa Bonet and Zoë Kravitz, there’s plenty of multigenerational inspiration here.

Runway to Red Carpet: The Celeb Circuit Steps Out for Two Blockbuster Press Tours

-------

Shailene Woodley While much of the Hollywood set tends to enjoy a little break after the awards season finale, the stars of March’s blockbusters have been busy promoting their high-profile flicks. The A-list stars of the biblical epic Noah have been trotting around the world promoting the film, and the picture’s leading ladies have been continually knocking it out of the sartorial ballpark at each premiere. In Madrid, Jennifer Connelly chose a nude Giambattista Valli Spring ’14 Haute Couture frock embroidered with pale leaves and a crystal neckline. Her equally chic costar Emma Watson opted for a black-and-white J. Mendel ensemble, featuring a draped white blouse and tapered black pants fresh off the Fall ’14 runway.

Stateside, the stars of the buzzed-about Divergent have had a busy premiere week of their own. Shailene Woodley, the film’s heroine and a rapidly rising star, stepped out in a black figure-hugging jumpsuit with a sheer detailed bodice from Elie Saab’s Pre-Fall ’13 lineup for a screening in New York on Thursday. In true Hollywood fashion, a bevy of notables turned up for the film’s world premiere in Los Angeles on Tuesday, including Kiernan Shipka, Ellie Goulding, and Zoe Kravitz. Shipka attended the L.A. premiere of Divergent in Valentino’s tulle frock covered with armor-like patchwork from the Spring ’14 runway, while Kravitz turned up in a white off-the-shoulder frock from BFF Alexander Wang’s Spring ’14 Balenciaga collection.

Runway to Red Carpet: Sparkles Galore and a Courageous Katniss

-------

Jennifer LawrenceWhile the subtle sparkle of diamonds is often the finishing touch on a red-carpet look, a few of the best ensembles of the week were doused with glittering crystals. Elizabeth Banks continued to hit the sartorial nail on the head as The Hunger Games: Catching Fire tour came to a close in New York on Wednesday. She shimmered in a bedazzled black ensemble from Jenny Packham’s Fall ’13 runway. The same evening in Las Vegas, Kate Bosworth chose a scintillating Spring ’14 Fendi frock completely covered in geometric Swarovski crystals for the premiere of her new film, Homefront.

Before finishing its whirlwind press tour in New York, Catching Fire held a star-studded premiere in Los Angeles on Monday, which brought out notables including Kiernan Shipka, Zoë Kravitz, and Sarah Hyland. Shipka charmed in a black silk sleeveless blouse and skirt embroidered with green and blue floral beading from Miu Miu’s Spring ’14 collection, and Kravitz opted for a Balenciaga Spring ’14 LBD with a wide neckline and buttons up the side. The nod for best dressed of the evening goes to the film’s leading lady, Jennifer Lawrence, in a daring sheer Dior Fall ’13 Couture gown with a full skirt over a strapless black bodysuit. We appreciate that Katniss is as fearless on the red carpet as she is in the arena.

Foreign Exchange: Alexander Wang Brings New York To Beijing

-------



“It’s about energy, doing something different—bringing a bit of New York to Beijing,” Alexander Wang shouted over the din at a party celebrating his new flagship in Beijing on Friday night. For Wang, “different” meant going underground, literally: The bash took place in the subterranean parking garage beneath his store. (The invitations? Battery-powered traffic wands.)

Entering the two-story shop in the city’s Sanlitun Village North complex, where Wang joins Balenciaga, Lanvin, and a spinoff of Dover Street Market, guests first sipped Champagne within a glam-modernist interior of gray terrazzo floors, white marble plinths, and bronzed mirrors before being ushered into an elevator heading downstairs. Once there, hundreds of revelers including Zoë Kravitz, Penn Badgley, model Du Juan, and Beijing it girl Mega Meng Meng could be found packed inside the blue-lit parking garage, thumping to tracks courtesy of Diplo and a performance by A$AP Rocky. “This is out of control—I can’t hear a thing and love it!” one local heiress was (barely) overheard saying.

Before long, the party reached its apogee with a seemingly spontaneous act of catharsis: The crowd of partiers, models, and socialites sent sprays of bottled water, Absolut vodka, and Yanjing beer flying all over. The shopping center’s famously persnickety management probably wasn’t happy. But just before midnight, Wang’s mother, Ying, could be spotted heading out with a big grin on her face.

Beamon’s Burlesque

-------

You can’t judge a book by its cover, but often you can judge a bash by the line at the door. At Erickson Beamon’s jewelry presentation at Milk Studios yesterday, 80 people were queued up outside the burlesque-in-Berlin-themed presentation, which drew on styles from the 1920′s and ’30s. But this was less a presentation than a party. The event was styled as a cabaret, complete with a live performance by the Citizens Band and bejeweled models sashaying across the room in drop-waist dresses. Zoë Kravitz, Penn Badgley, Lily Kwong, and Johnny Weir were a few of the many who had made it in to check out the show.

As the tempo increased, Citizens’ Sarah Sophie Flicker—dressed in a velvet corset, feather headdress, and little else—took to the stage, impressing the crowd with her acrobatic high kicks. “If there’s one person in the room that’s a bigger ham than me, it’s Sarah,” said Michelle Harper, who was decked out in one of Beamon’s most elaborate necklaces from last season. “I’m seriously in love with this piece; I want to wear it every day.” Monique Erickson, who is rarely photographed without her trademark crystal headdress, replied, “Well, I do! Honestly, I wear this thing everywhere, literally like the burger joint on the corner.” Around 10 p.m., the crowd shuttled out, bound for more performances at Milk by the likes of Lissy Trullie and Wu-Tang Clan.
