As New Yorkers, we’re pretty unapologetic about the fact that we don’t envy too much about L.A. However, there are two glamorous things we wish called NYC home: Dita Von Teese and the Chateau Marmont. For Rachel Pally’s exclusive Fall 2013 celebration dinner, the Hollywood institution and burlesque queen were brought together and we’re kind of upset we weren’t there to bask in the Old Hollywood glory.
She’s 98% legs, so that helps. But there’s still a lot going on with the crotch-skimming number from Balmain’s Resort 2014 collection that Kate Hudson wore to the premiere of HBO’s Clear History in Los Angeles last night. Not only is it denim and patchwork (did we mention that already?) but it’s also embellished with sequins and chains and features floral embroidery. Sounds like a complete nightmare, but she somehow makes it work.
It’s kinda unfair to females that all Matt Damon has to do is put on a suit jacket and he’s immediately the best thing on the red carpet. We feel particularly bad for Byrdie Bell, because it must have taken a considerable amount of effort to appear as blithely perfect as she does in her crochet-sleeved dress and adorable mustard hat. But there’s no question that this screening of Elysium that happened in New York last night was a home run for the boys.
Any red carpet that plays host to Sharon Stone, Amanda Seyfreid, Joan Smalls, and Lou Reed will inevitably be one for the books. Case in point: The Lovelace premiere.
Tilda Swinton is a beautiful eccentricity that dodges the binary rules of time, kinda like the human version of an expensive antique trinket. Or even a literal work of art. Hence why we cannot think of a celebrity more suited to debuting Valentino’s cabinet of curiosities-inspired Fall 2013 Couture collection.
Well this is definitely one of the most visually cohesive red carpets we’ve seen in a while. At yesterday’s CW, CBS And Showtime 2013 Summer TCA Party we get the feeling that that the majority of attendees had some sort of “I’ll wear my black dress and my blue nail polish, you wear your white dress with the blue sequins” arrangement. Or at least there was some sort of memo specifying a ‘crisp, monochromatic dresses and separates spiked with pops of off-primary colors’.
It’s depressing enough that girls just out of their tweens are dressing cooler than we are. We’ve come to accept that kids these days seem to skip — probably in pointed-toe kitten heels — rather than suffer through the formative years of childhoods past. But c’mon, nearly everybody in attendance at NBCUniversal’s 2013 Summer TCA Tour: That doesn’t have to mean you’re over the sartorial hill at the ripe old age of 25.
We try desperately to forget what we wore during those awkward, formative middle school years, but every once in a while we get haunted by ghosts of outfits past. Luckily, the looks we saw on the red carpet at the sprightly red carpet for the Variety’s Power of Youth event looked nothing like our Bat Mitzvah get-ups from the 7th grade.
Power to anyone who dares to rival Chrissy Teigen when she opts for very sheer and very short at a Las Vegas launch party. Last night Heather Locklear deemed herself up to the task, showing up to TNT’s 25th Anniversary party one state over with ambitions bigger than her hair. We’re hoping that hair is full of secrets, specifically about how to maintain so phenomenal a figure at age 51, but unfortunately that’s probably due to a boring diet and strict exercise regime. Boo.
We know she loves a good costume. But at last night’s pre-show event for Season 8 of America’s Got Talent, Heidi Klum made the mistake of dressing up as someone who was already present.
We can’t imagine that hanging out with an OC cast member would lure Aubrey Plaza out of her sullenly awkward comfort zone. And nor can we see the star of those sticky sweet Magnum commercials getting buddy buddy with apathetic April from Parks and Rec.
Hot off the heels of having the Kate Middleton’s mother, Carole Middleton, sport one of her designs on the world stage during a royal baby hospital visit, Orla Kiely celebrated the launch of her latest diffusion line for Target: an assortment of tech accessories in her signature kitschy prints. Proving that she has an ever cool following, Ora’s guest list included basically all of our favorite gals.
Cate Blanchett is jealous of all these babies and pregnant ladies. At least this is the vibe we are getting from the maternity chic Balenciaga ensemble she wore to the Blue Jasmine premiere at New York’s Museum of Modern Art last night. And apparently jealousy pays off: We love when Cate takes a risk on the red carpet, and the amped-up volume on her fairytale-hued cape makes it quite literally a work of modern art.
Pregnancy and champagne are not renowned for their compatibility. But from what we can see, mom-to-be Charlotte Dellal was on her best behavior at the Veuve Clicquot Gold Cup Final at Cowdray Park this weekend. And who needs a glass of bubbles anyway when you’ve got a sparkly Perspex box clutch that looks a whole lot more fun?
Hailee Steinfeld has been making her mark on the Comic-Con scene both for her film and sartorial prowess, and she just seems to keep outdoing herself. Her latest combination, a geometric Bibhu Mohapatra Resort 2014 top and trumpet skirt, high octane nail art, and blue-shadowed eyes prove that if you’re going to go out on a style limb, Comic-Con is the place to raise the least eyebrows. Seriously, how are digital prints going to stack up on the weird scale next to superheros, hobbits, and dragon-toting Daenerys Targaryens.
Georgia May Jagger was just sweet sixteen when she was first snapped up by Hudson Jeans, and if we’ve learned anything from watching her smize while wrapped in a Union Jack flag, it’s a relationship that’s still going strong four years later.
Three makes a trend, and white + skin is officially our new combo uniform for summer. Well, on two days a week anyway. And maybe after 6:00 PM, on evenings when we don’t head straight home to sit in front of the A/C in our underwear eating Ben & Jerry’s.
While you can never be too sure with someone like Lysa Cooper, we have a feeling the celebrity stylist would have given Johnny Depp her blessing for his look at last night’s press junket for his new Western action film, Lone Ranger. You see, Cooper has professed her admiration of homeless people and their style, and while we’re not exactly calling Depp a vagrant, he kind of looks like a man that stumbled off the street and on to the red carpet. Than again, that’s often been his modus operandi, and more importantly, why we love him.
Well this looks like fun. Last night California and Jon Hamm hosted the 2013 ESPY Awards, in which LeBron James‘ clean-up act included winning Best Male Athlete and Robin Roberts took home the Arthur Ashe Courage Award (and plenty of hearts).
