Costume designer Trish Summerville and I caught up on the red carpet of the Catching Fire premiere to discuss her work on the film and her tie-in collaboration with NET-A-PORTER – Capitol Couture. Trish didn’t make the costumes for the first Hunger Games, so she had to play catch-up, and in the end, far outdid all expectations.
Florence Welch stepped out for last night’s Museum of Natural History gala in NYC wearing a museum-worthy Valentino gown. The singer is often seen in designs from the Italian fashion house, and it’s no wonder why. Her luxe boho aesthetic fits in perfectly with Maria Grazia and Pierpaolo’s Spring/Summer 2014 collection, one inspired appropriately enough by opera.
The holiday season is all about decadence – bright lights, rich colors, and of course, lush textures. The best way to celebrate in style is with some soft, chic velvet. The drama ends there, though, because the keys to pulling off the slinky fabric are muted colors, impeccable tailoring, and minimalism (Multiple pieces at once? A definite no!).
Karlie Kloss is one of my favorite models to see gracing Oscar de la Renta’s catwalk, and last night it seemed she mixed business with pleasure by taking one of his dresses off the runway and onto the red carpet. She was out on the town for Glamour’s Women of the Year Awards, proving to be quite award-worthy herself in the Pre-Fall ’13 gown.
Last night while the whole country was dressing in costume, Scandal’s Olivia Pope was dressing to the nines. I could have worn this Rubin Singer gown for the TWO x TWO for AIDS and Art “Black and White” gala last weekend (fashion aside, the cliffhanger of Olivia’s mother’s death is killing me!).
