This weekend, some of Hollywood's biggest names got together for the Los Angeles County Museum of Art's third annual Art+Film Gala. The event, presented by Gucci, meant that the night's unofficial dress code included gorgeous gowns by the fashion house. It also meant a night filled with more celebrity skin than most red carpet gatherings. We're looking at the night's most notable looks, from Zoe Saldana showing off her sheer side (or sides, as it were) to Nicole Richie in a look that left little to the imagination. Click through for more statement-making styles from such stars as Drew Barrymore, Salma Hayek, and Olivia Wilde.
This season has been quite a fashionable one when it comes to trips to the theater. With chic movies like Blue Jasmine packing your cinematic experience with as much style as a runway and the Chopard-packed Diana poised to do the same, watching the silver screen is nearly on par with flipping through the September issues.
Rush, a movie with far more eye candy than just Chris Hemsworth sporting a retro race-car jumpsuit, speeds by the pack (pun intended) with a glam '70s wardrobe. Tasked with dressing Ron Howard's beautiful cast, which also includes Olivia Wilde, costume designer Julian Day turned to Gucci, Salvatore Ferragamo, and Piaget's archives. We spoke to Day about his design process and got a sneak peek at the ensembles we can look forward to when the film hits screens today.
From Jennifer Aniston's soft gray Vivienne Westwood Couture gown at the Toronto Film Festival and Kerry Washington in her hot pink Halston Heritage number to Gwyneth Paltrow's fresh-as-ever white Lanvin dress at the Thanks For Sharing LA premiere, we were hit with some stunningly ladylike dresses this week. From fuller skirts to midi hemlines, we liked the departure from Summer's minis! But those aren't the only stars who got the demure dress code right. Without further ado, head inside to experience them all for yourself.
If it's been awhile since the last time you called a bag campaign twee, get ready to do it again. In the final installment of Gucci's "Forever Now" campaign, the house hired Bruce Weber to photograph Charlotte Casiraghi and a whole herd of camera-ready golden retrievers with its new bamboo bag.
“It is always a great pleasure to work with Frida Giannini and Gucci, and it is a great honor to be part of iconic campaigns with such a talented photographer as Bruce Weber," Casiraghi said of the campaign. "Working with him was a wonderful experience, and our love and fascination for animals created a very spontaneous bond during the shoot."
Weber certainly shares his subject's enthusiasm for dogs — in fact he's photographed our canine friends nearly as much as he has models. And in this case, we think going to the dogs was a good move.
Three words to describe Gucci's Spring 2014 show? Sexy, sexy, and more sexy. Evoking the feel of a sundrenched, seaside resort, the hair was tousled and wet, similar to what we saw on the Spring 2014 runways of NYFW. Textured and part-less at the top and slightly bent at the bottom, strands cascaded down the models' backs. The makeup also had a "wet look" about it, with loads of bronze shadow blended around the eyes and a swipe of glossy pink decorating the lips. But the centerpiece of the look? Plenty of bronzer. For Spring, Gucci gave us beach babes at their best.
When Gucci tweeted that Frida Giannini's Spring 2014 show was inspired by Erté's illustrations, the reference was immediately clear. Swirling strokes of vibrant jewel tones, illustrative outlines, and iridescent accents made these deco designs true works of runway art!
Those motifs extended from head to toe, from linear fringed totes right down to the strappiest of sandals (after all, what's a Gucci show without a few of next season's must-have accessories?). And while we've seen sheer panels on many a runway, the collection's piped application made this trend look as good as nouveau.
Just because you may not be in Milan doesn't mean you have to miss out on the city's Fashion Week. In just a few minutes, the Gucci Spring 2014 show will start — and we're taking you with us to the front row. See every look, every shoe, and every bag from the new Spring line as it walks the runway. Fingers crossed, the video will start early, so you'll be able to see your favorite editors take their seats before the house lights go down. And no worries if you're fashionably late — we'll be replaying this show all day long.
