Mulberry will return, too, and Charlotte Olympia is making its runway debut.
Even the kitty flat gets a new twist.
With ladies like Cate Blanchett, Rose Byrne and Rachel Bilson making the red carpet rounds this week, we knew we were in for some pretty perfect looks. And in Balenciaga, Christopher Kane and Oscar de la Renta respectively, they did not disappoint. We also saw Solange in some Geisha-inspired Prada and Aubrey Plaza impressed us with some very chic Calvin Klein. Click through for all that and the rest of this week's 10 best dressed.
Writing about fashion full time means getting a little obsessed--okay, really, really obsessed--with certain topics. (Cough, Taylor Momsen, cough.) But when it comes to actual clothes and accessories, our enthusiasm knows no bounds. From those elusive Pierre Hardy boots (we finally had to cave and buy a pair) to Stella McCartney Kids clothes (adults can fit a large, thank you!), there was lots to blog about. Care to take a look?
It’s been a very fashionable 2010, so to celebrate, we’ve decided to compile our first-ever list of the year’s best dressed. Professionally styled or not (most are not), these men and women have consistently gotten it right this year, or at the very least, impressed us with their individuality. For each actor, musician, model or industry person on our list, we’ve selected five of his or her best looks from the past 12 months, so hopefully this list is also full of inspiration. In alphabetical order, we present to you our top 30 best dressed of the year.
We love Alexa Chung' preppy-chic loafers and fitted blazer. We're also absolutely smitten over Charlotte Dellal's Charlotte Olympia banana clutch. Julia Johansen went wild in her colorful zebra print while at a Mulberry dinner. And both Cat Deeley and Caroline Sieber look stunning while arriving to the Burberry show.
LONDON--Britt had raved about socialite Charlotte Dellal's shoe collection Charlotte Olympia, and I had read a few profiles on her in UK glossies, but now that I've seen several pairs of Dellal's shoes close up--at Emilio de la Morena, Henry Holland, and on the designer herself--I'm smitten. As a sensible shoe person--I own very few pairs of crazy heels, and I wear them sparingly--it's difficult for me to understand how people can physically bear to walk in many of them. While I appreciate the art of cobbling, particularly Nicholas Kirkwood's work, I know that even if I could afford those Kirkwood for Rodarte shoes, I would have to put them on display like a sculpture, as I know I would never be able to walk in them, even for a second. But there's something about Dellal's shoes, something almost accessible--maybe the sky-high platforms?--that makes me think I could pull them off.
This week, Paris was the place to be and black and white were the colors to wear. At Chanel couture, Blake and Lou kept it classy in Chanel jackets. At Valentino, Bianca Brandolini and Charlotte Dellal were gorgeous in looks from Spring '11 and Fall/Winter '10/'11, respectively. We made an exception for our fave Diane Kruger, who was not in Paris, but holding it down in Berlin in classic Calvin Klein. Click through to check them out.
