Runway to Red Carpet: Arty Parties and High-Glamour Mesh

-------

Karl Lagerfeld and Tilda SwintonWhile fashion and art have always gone hand in hand, the Spring ’14 runways were influenced by art more than ever. The creative cross-pollination continued this week with several designer-sponsored museum galas, which brought a bevy of well-dressed power players to the red carpet. New York City’s Museum of Modern Art’s tribute to Tilda Swinton, co-chaired by Karl Lagerfeld, had many stars donning Chanel’s recent runway wares on Tuesday evening. Jessica Biel, Lupita Nyong’o, and, of course, the lady of honor, Swinton, all turned up in Karl’s latest looks to celebrate. Later in the week, the Dior-sponsored Guggenheim International gala and pre-party in New York saw screen sirens like Elizabeth Olsen, Natalie Portman, Leelee Sobieski, and Cobie Smulders posing on the red carpet in a host of Raf Simons’ takes on the LBD. On Saturday, Gucci presented the Los Angeles County Museum of Art 2013 Art + Film gala, which was studded with A-listers in showstopping Gucci gowns. Salma Hayek in particular stood out in an embellished beige Gucci Première halter dress with a sparkling belted waist.

While mesh is not the first thing that comes to mind for black-tie affairs, strategically placed mesh has been making its way onto the red carpet, thanks to its starring role on many Spring ’14 runways. Zoe Saldana attended the LACMA 2013 Art + Film gala in a figure-hugging black Gucci gown with strips of mesh panels down the sides, which subtly made the otherwise conservative dress sexy. The following evening, Jaimie Alexander took the trend up several notches at the Thor: The Dark World premiere in L.A. The actress chose a floor-length, long-sleeve, high-neck Azzaro Spring ’14 dress that showed about as much skin as it covered.

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

From the Catwalk to the Carpet: Models Take Over at Cannes

-------

Doutzen Kroes, Joan Smalls, and Barbara Palvin in Cannes

Every year, the crème de la crème of the film industry get glammed up to hobnob and vamp for the paparazzi at the Cannes Film Festival. While A-listers such as Jessica Chastain, Nicole Kidman, Marion Cotillard, Carey Mulligan, and Zoe Saldana have made an impressive showing thus far, they’ve arguably been eclipsed by the contingent of top-tier catwalkers who have flocked to the red carpets en masse. Yesterday, in particular, was a model-watcher’s paradise, with the likes of Joan Smalls, Petra Nemcova, Barbara Palvin, Chanel Iman, Jessica Hart, and Erin Heatherton posing for the cameras like the pros that they are. Milla Jovovich, Liya Kebede, and Doutzen Kroes were snapped multiple times earlier in the week, and Yasmin Warsame and Irina Lazareanu made some memorable cameos, too. Presumably, even more runway regulars will turn up at the amfAR blowout on Thursday—we’ve got it on authority that Liu Wen and Karolina Kurkova are already in town. Sorry, starlets. When it comes to posing and strutting in borrowed gowns, models simply do it best.

Hollywood’s Most Powerful Stylists Revealed

-------

The results are in. Today, The Hollywood Reporter released its third annual list of Hollywood’s 25 Most Powerful Stylists. The winners include big names we’ve been hearing a lot about of late—Kate Young, who’s been whipping up a buzz with her new Target collection (and who styles Michelle Williams, Rachel Weisz, and Natalie Portman), came in at number four. Elizabeth Stewart, who chronicled her experience styling Amanda Seyfried, Jessica Chastain, Julia Roberts, and Cody Horn for the Golden Globes for Style.com, came in at number five. And Rachel Zoe, who styled Anne Hathaway and Jennifer Lawrence in their much-talked-about Oscar gowns, slid in at number three. Petra Flannery, who styles Emma Stone, Zoe Saldana, and Megan Fox, was this year’s runner-up. And the big winner is (drumroll, please) Leslie Fremar, who styles discerning stars like Julianne Moore, Charlize Theron, and Jennifer Connelly. A surprise on the list was designer (and Mick Jagger’s girlfriend) L’Wren Scott, who came in at number sixteen for dressing Nicole Kidman.

Get the Look: Zoe Saldana, All Star

Zoe Saldana has a talent for rocking runway looks on the red carpet (the pastel brocade Prabal Gurung pantsuit she wore to the designer’s Fall 2012 show and the Givenchy Couture white dress she donned at the 2012 SAG Awards come to mind). But the actress has a knack for putting together laid-back (but no less chic) everyday outfits, too. She was recently snapped in L.A. wearing Diane von Furstenberg cargo pants, a classic white T-shirt, and a Gentsco baseball cap. Get her look with the essentials below.

Dear Santa, Please Bring Me…A Very Long Letter?

-------

Last night’s annual tree-lighting at Rockefeller Center was a mob scene, but it wasn’t the evening’s only throng. Just down the street, shoppers, designers, and fashion fixtures like Kate Bosworth, Prabal Gurung and Karlie Kloss came together to toast the launch of Target, Neiman Marcus, and the CFDA’s collaborative holiday collection—and to do a little pre-shopping. A set of highball glasses designed by Joseph Altuzarra, and Christmas ornaments by Jason Wu seemed to be particularly hot-ticket items, and some designers appeared to have had their own lists in mind when creating their items: Both the duos behind Marchesa and Rag & Bone made outfits for their children. But what were they hoping for themselves? Click here for a slideshow of shoppers roaming the racks, and read on below to find out who’s stockpiling Jet-Set Travel and Peruvian liquor, and who’s hoping to find a Ferrari parked under their tree.
