Best Dressed gets bigger this week! Click through to see the ten best dressed celebs of the week. We left out the sartorial amazingness that was the met ball, since we already covered that pretty extensively. Still, from Chloe Moretz to Alexa Chung to Kate Middleton, the celebs kept up the momentum throughout the rest Read more →
At last night’s Grammy Awards, there were tearful Whitney Housten tributes, awkward acceptance speeches, stellar and not so stellar (Minaj, anyone?) performances and, of course, some serious red carpet fashion.
LOS ANGELES–Last night Miu Miu pulled out all the stops to celebrate the launch of their “Noir” sunglasses collation with an over-the-top ’40s-themed bash at an enormous villa in the Hollywood Hills (apparently they film parts of Entourage there). The brand wrangled so many celebs–from campaign star Hailee Steinfeld (who was joined at the hip to new BFF Tavi Gevinson) to Diane Kruger to
Smith Jerrod Jason Lewis to Marilyn Manson (yes, he was really there and he came with China Chow)–it was nearly impossible to avoid bumping into them.
The cat-eye ’40s-style glasses, which debuted on Miu Miu’s fall 2011 runway, were the stars of a short film, Muta, commissioned by the brand. The film, directed by award-winning Argentinian director Lucrecia Martel, premiered last night on a screen suspended in the villa’s grand courtyard. It’s the second installment in the “Miu Miu Women’s Tales Saga,” a film series that explores “the feminine love affair with Miu Miu.” (Watch the first film directed by Zoe Cassavetes here).
Muta is creepy in the best way: models in fall Miu Miu slithered and slinked and occasionally disappeared altogether on a cruise ship–one even contorted to squeeze through a tiny porthole. Only you never saw their faces.
LOS ANGELES-Saturday night Justin Timberlake and Trace Ayala, the boys behind the clothing line William Rast, launched their limited edition line for Target with a special shopping event. And it was some party. Guests entering the industrial space in downtown Los Angeles were instantly transported into the William Rast for Target world of rebellious biker culture. The brand’s campaign video, set in some remote country landscape, was projected high up on the walls, and carpeted lounge-like shopping areas throughout the warehouse lent the event a bohemian, laid back vibe. Even the dressing rooms, seemingly made from wooden shipping crates, complemented the rough and tough aesthetic of the brand. (Super creative idea; unfortunately it was also claustrophobia-inducing.)
Lucky party-goers got to beat the Target crowds and shop the Western-inspired collection alongside celebs like Rachel Bilson, Anna Faris, and Malin Akerman. (As well as that dude from Gossip Girl and The Social Network.) In between bites of mac and cheese and mini ice cream sandwiches, we also spotted Joy Bryant, Minka Kelly, and Chord Overstreet of Glee checking out the goods.
As cool as the party was, the night’s real stand-out was the super affordable and entirely-wearable collection, with pieces ranging from $16.99 to $199.99.
