It was the Hollywood premiere of Carrie last night, so naturally costars Chloë Moretz and Julianne Moore got dolled up to fete their latest flick. Chloë chose a beautiful green Valentino printed gown from the Spring 2013 collection, while Julianne took a different approach in a white asymmetrical Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci gown. She added a beaded clutch and a Harry Winston ring to finish. Both ladies clearly brought their best to the red carpet, but which Carrie actress wins this style battle? Cast your vote below!
For Spring 2014, the Valentino runway was filled with complex patterns and an ethnic motif. The beauty look consisted of hair parted down the middle and pulled back into a low ponytail covering the ears. Each model wore a brown leather headband with golden studs that pulled from jewelry in the collection.
Makeup, which included a touch of pink eye shadow and matching lip balm, was simple so as not to detract from the vibrant clothing. We definitely count this as one of Valentino's simpler looks compared to the beauty on runways past. The best thing about this entire look? It's not season-specific, so feel free to wear it right now.
There is always regality at Valentino, but Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccoli's Spring 2014 collection for the house added doses of myth and lots of visual appeal to their queenly clothing.
The show notes said this collection was inspired by "imaginary ethnic groups" — but that didn't stop some editors from seeing Game of Thrones in these clothes, many of which featured bright bursts of color on dark backgrounds. A long-sleeved black dress featured blue and pink diamond shapes, and a black-and-beige striped coat had a long tail that brought point blankets to mind. Many of the pieces — like the technicolor dream cape Malaika Firth wore to open the show — featured fringe, which gave both garments and handbags a lively sense of movement as they came down the runway.
Long sleeves and conservative shapes dominated here. Perhaps that's why a short-sleeved blue shirt with sheer shoulders paired with wide-legged trousers looked so modern.
All hail! This week's installment of Net-A-Porter's The Edit shows an ethereal Eva Mendes clad in Valentino and clasping a rosary. Inside, the cover star wears Anna Sui and Dolce & Gabbana as she discusses her next venture: launching her New York & Company line. The actress — who agreed to lend her name after consulting her mother and sisters — told Net-A-Porter, "It's directly inspired by my closet." If Net-A-Porter's chic shoot is any indication of what's in that closet, let us all say, "Amen!"
When people think Valentino, they think elegant, feminine designs. And it's this aesthetic that follows suit in the perpetually glamorous beauty looks sent down the runways with the clothes. Ballerina buns, berry lips, and natural makeup are what we've seen on these models, whether the season be Spring or Fall. Gear up for Paris Fashion Week by reliving some of the most beautiful moments of the Valentino runway.
