On Wednesday evening, Erdem and H&M took over the historic The Ebell of Los Angeles and transformed it into a blooming English garden, some 5,300-odd miles from the U.K. While Dhani — who was there! — will soon recap the evening and the collection in full, it's worth discussing the red carpet alone. It was that good, primarily because it did what these sorts of red carpets are meant to do — that is, convince you to buy clothes that aren't yet in stores.
This time, there were more than a few pieces that did just that. Unsurprisingly, we now desperately, desperately, desperately need Alexa Chung's perfect, embellished tank dress, which, of course, can also be said about truly everything Chung ever wears, on carpets or otherwise. Kate Bosworth wore what Dhani referred to as "the most Kate Bosworth dress," complete with a tea-length hemline, fitted waist and structured skirt. But there were plenty of looks for the more casual attendees of the bunch: Kirsten Dunst's caramel-y silk pajama set should fly off the shelves, as should Zendaya's satin midi skirt and plush, cropped cable knit sweater. The menswear — a first for Erdem as a label — was delicious, too, with the IMG-repped Neels Visser wearing a particularly fabulous pair of berry floral trousers. (Taylor Kitsch was there, too, which was a delightful surprise for Tim Riggins fans near and far.)
