Jessica Chastain, recently announced as the brand ambassador for Yves Saint Laurent's new scent Manifesto, did not wear YSL -- as some had surmised -- on the Oscar carpet.
Instead she stepped out wearing a shimmering strapless gown by red carpet staple Armani Prive. Her stylist Elizabeth Stewart tells THR exclusively, "We loved how the copper underlay picked up on her hair color."
The Academy Awards are finally here and, as usual, red carpet fashion continues to be among the most highly anticipated aspects of the evening.
But after the red carpet has been rolled up and every last award doled out, the fun really starts with parties thrown by the likes of Vanity Fair, InStyle and Elton John. And those on the list should remember that their post-Oscar fashion is just as important -- if not more so -- than the glamorous gowns that come before.
We've always wondered why there weren't more vintage costume and designer fashion elements in the Oscar preshow. Sure, there are plenty of amazing actresses in couture gowns sailing down the red carpet, but let's face it, no one -- not even your grandmother -- can get enough of Oscar fashion, its present and its glorious past.
Move over, actresses, fashion bloggers, and stylists.
A new wave of tastemakers and influencers has arrived: TV costume designers are stepping out from behind the scenes and assuming profitable new positions in the spokesperson/brand ambassador marketing arena.
Beyonce was in tip-top shape Tuesday night at the New York premiere of her HBO documentary Life Is But a Dream.
The singer had covered up the night before, wearing a graphic black-and-white pantsuit to the Grammys, disappointing some fans who had just watched her fiercely bump and grind in next-to-nothing during the Super Bowl half-time show on Sunday night.
Usually A-list actresses use nothing but expensive makeup from Chanel, Dior, Yves Saint Laurent, etc.
But when we heard that Great Gatsby star Carey Mulligan’s Grammy look included pricey products from Tom Ford, Laura Mercier and Anastasia as well as affordable items from Avon’s young makeup line mark, we sat up and took notice.
You just can't take the sex appeal out of the Grammys. As was to be expected, a few fearless celebrities ignored – some might even say flouted -- CBS’s strict Standards & Practices fashion memo that memorably banned the exposure of any part of breasts and buttocks and any written obscenities in wardrobes.
You can't please all of the people all of the time -- we've certainly learned that in the midst of elections. You can barely please half the country half the time. But it's gotten even worse with fashion at awards shows -- everyone's got an opinion, and some of them are very loud. But just because "the net" doesn't like someone's outfit or look, does that mean it really doesn't work? Majority does not work when it comes to fashion -- the strength isn't in the numbers, actually.
If she did, she was definitely pushing the envelope with her sheer red chiffon Azzedine Alaia gown, which caused a few red-carpet reporters to admit that they had seen "a lot more of Rihanna than they should have" after she whisked by them.
