Diane Kruger in Hugo Boss
Well, she can officially do it all. In the film Farewell My Queen, Diane Kruger plays the ultimate clotheshorse: Marie Antoinette. (And she plays her well.) But at one of the parties to celebrate the debut of the film, Diane dressed decidedly more casual. Although, who can blame her after running around Versailles in corsets and pirate-shaped wigs? Just because she was dressed down didn’t mean she was out for this week’s list. Her look was casual but drop dead sexy. I love the effortless baggy trousers and tank top dressed up with a killer pair of heels.
Marion Cotillard in Dior Couture
The debut goes to Marion Cotillard! I was wondering which actress would be the first one to wear Raf Simons’ first Dior Couture collection on the red carpet. And it was very appropriately the Oscar-winning French actress and ambassador for the house at The Dark Knight Rises premiere in London. Doesn’t she look divine? I love the proportions — a tiny top and a long, leg-lengthening skirt — and bonus points for the pops of color with the crimson handbag and pumps. While the debate is still raging over the future of Dior, I’m looking forward to seeing more of this collection on the red carpet!
Anne Hathaway in Stella McCartney
Speaking of fashion multi-taskers, we’ve got another one here. Anne Hathaway’s out and about promoting her role as Catwoman in the new Batman flick, which has her in a skin tight leather bodysuit and her hair in long, flowing locks. (And, I have to say, I was a little surprised she’s been able to do sexy so well.) But in real life, her look is gamine and adorable. I like this pixie cut and I loved this mixed print Stella McCartney frock she wore on Jimmy Fallon.
Lauren Santo Domingo in Nina Ricci
Somehow (and even though I’m a friend I still don’t know how), Moda Operandi’s Lauren Santo Domingo manages to make high fashion samples into maternity clothes. Look at this Nina Ricci cocktail dress she wore at a charity benefit in New York. You can hardly notice she’s six months pregnant. It looks like she just had a big lunch. I love the play of patterns on the dress, and the tulle ruffle is the perfect pregnancy foil.
Hailee Steinfeld in Marc Jacobs
I have to give it to Hailee Steinfeld: She’s hitting all the right notes on the red carpet. I was a little worried last year when she wore Converse sneakers with a Marchesa dress to the Vanity Fair Oscars party. It was cute at the time, but it’s good to see she knew not to be too cute all the time. Her style has grown up, and so has her fashion cred: She’s already done two Miu Miu campaigns. I loved this bright floral Marc Jacobs dress she wore to the Batman premiere in New York, and how she paired it with a funky wedge. Fun and chic!
Jessica Biel in Mugler
Good one, Jessica Biel. The American actress whose fashion choices, in my humble opinion, tend to fall in the expected category, mixed it up at Comic Con this year. The plastic Mugler pencil skirt looks fabulous on her. Maybe she should consider tapping into her inner French sex goddess more often! After all, her future husband did bring sexy back.
Miranda Kerr in Céline
I’m not sure if Phoebe Philo would consider this a compliment, but my grandmother had pants in almost the identical pattern to the Céline pants that Miranda Kerr wore while running errands in New York City. Not that that’s the only reason I loved them, of course. Philo’s designs are some of my girlfriends’ most prized possessions, and when you see the easy, breezy elegance on a girl like Miranda, it’s clear why.
Kyra Sedgwick at The David Letterman Show
OK, now I understand how she’s kept Kevin Bacon around for so long. Kyra Sedgwick is smoking. The body-hugging red dress she wore to tape an appearance on The David Letterman Show was absolutely fabulous. I loved the fit, and the below-the-knee hem was the perfect counterpart to the cleavage-bearing neckline.
Thandie Newton in Stella McCartney
I’m not sure if you’ve heard, but Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes got a divorce. Yeah, it’s been reported on a few blogs. Anyway, all that attention got me thinking about his movies, and then I found this picture of Thandie Newton looking seriously chic in Stella McCartney, and now I’m in the mood for a Mission Impossible marathon. Anyway, back to the dress: It’s simple and elegant, but the cut is what makes it so fabulous. The slight flair at the waste accentuates Thandie’s curves to perfection.
Alexa Chung in Louis Vuitton
Not since Patti Hearst has a beret looked so chic. And not since the Rocky movies have I had such sweatshirt envy. (Though, for much different reasons.) I loved the Louis Vuitton ensemble that Alexa Chung put together for Vuitton’s Shanghai store opening. But then again, I’d love any look with that Sprouse leopard print in it.
