L’Wren Scott Page 1
During our morning commute we strode, Starbucks holiday cup in hand, past the 34th street Macy’s as the red awning went up and their windows got primed for their annual Christmas makeover. Despite looking like loathsome tourists, as unabashed season-pushers, we loved every second of it. We had an equally fuzzy feeling for the Banana Republic L’Wren Scott Holiday 2013 teaser images, which are brimming with many characteristics we love about holiday dress.
On July 5, 1969, Mick Jagger stood on stage in London’s Hyde Park looking like a Shakespearean heroine in a white voile tunic, with bishop sleeves and ruffles at the neck, as he recited verses from Percy Bysshe Shelley’s poem “Adonais” and released 2,500 white butterflies into the crowd. Flash forward 44 years to this past Saturday, where The Rolling Stones returned to Hyde Park, and Jagger took the stage again, this time in an oak-leaf inspired jacket, designed by his girlfriend, L’Wren Scott, who has designed all his looks for the Stones’ 50 & Counting Tour.
What constitutes a first-class British party? Kate Moss, royals, and Rolling Stones, of course. Last night, London’s best descended upon Kensington Gardens for the Serpentine Summer Party, which we’re pretty sure was the fête of the season.
New Year’s Eve is one of our favorite nights of the year for dressing up. Why? One word: SEQUINS. Our one criterion for an NYE ensemble is that there must be sequins, sequins, sequins, and this incredible dress by L’Wren Scott perfectly fits the bill. Or it would, if the bill we got after purchasing wouldn’t be $1,267.
Is it just us, or does London Fashion Week get better by the season? For Fall 2013, the once-peripheral destination is adding two big designers to its official schedule.
It must be the holidays, because these days we’re drawn to anything and everything covered with sparkles, sequins, and shine. So we’re happy to report that Allison Williams fed our need for glitz last night at the Seventh Annual Women Of Worth Awards at the Hearst Tower in New York City.
Hint: the designer is more known for her slinky, sexy, bombshell numbers than frothy, nuptial-ready confections. Which sounds right up Angie’s alley, actually.
Last night, celebrities worked the red carpet in California and fashion folk stepped out in New York, but which coast had better style?
Last night Madonna attended the BFI London Film Festival premiere for W.E. — otherwise known as her directorial debut about Wallis Simpson. And just as she did when showing off the film in Venice, the popstar-turned-director went the embellished route.
Admittedly, the bevy of expensive gowns at this year’s Oscars wasn’t the most exciting we’ve ever seen, but that didn’t stop a few looks from standing out. And among the ones that did, there were some pretty clear cut trends. Take a look at the colors and ideas that dominated the night and let us know if you see any trends you’ll be taking off the red carpet.
We’ll go first: we absolutely loved Christina Hendricks‘ black sequined wrap dress by L’Wren Scott. Hendricks likened the look to a smoking jacket — and kudos to her! Besides being incredibly flattering, we thought, how deliciously comfortable! That said, we knew it was bound to be a controversial look — most of Hendricks’ red carpet ensembles are — which begs the question: what did you think?
Michelle Obama is profiled in November’s Harper’s Bazaar, and she took her photo shoot wardrobe into her own hands. She picked her long-sleeve raspberry L’Wren Scott dress and blue kitten heels straight from her closet. We like her bold pairing! Does the First Lady have a thing for brights? “Well, you got to get a color pop,” she explains.
Dear readers, I must preface this by telling you that I’m not much of a heel girl. I’m also not much of a boot girl. However, even I can admit that these L’Wren Scott lace-up boots are really pretty amazing. But would I buy them? No.
Christina Hendricks used to lament that only actresses who could fit into sample sizes, like Lea Michele, were the only ones who could get designers to loan them dresses. But now that she’s a game-changing star, we don’t think getting a dress should really be all that much trouble for Hendricks.
We’re taking a look back at the hits and misses of last year’s Emmy red carpet arrivals before tonight’s show. We hope Glenn Close doesn’t wear sunglasses again this year.
The Academy Of Country Music Awards are a different kind of awards show. The hair is usually bigger and the dresses are most definitely glitzier — at least that’s the way it’s supposed to be. Why expect any different this year, especially considering the awards were held in Vegas? Right? Wrong.
