Not gonna lie…kind of obsessed with Micaela Erlanger at the moment. (The one in the middle.)
And I’m obsessed with Micaela because I’m super obsessed with Lupita Nyong’o. (If you don’t know she’s the one on the left, I don’t want anything to do with you.)
Lulu has been KILLING IT pretty much every time she appears in public, so when I read that Micaela is her stylist, I was like, “Oh my gawd you got skills let me follow you on every social media platform there is kthanksbye.”
And not long after that, I learned she also works with Michelle Dockery. (The one in the middle, below. You know, “Downton Abbey.”) And suddenly her superior red carpet game made sense.
I must admit, Peter Pilotto wasn’t on my radar until Kerry wore this fab frock –from the label’s Spring 2013 collection– during the “Django Unchained” press tour.
There’s a lot going on, but it all seems to work somehow.
Yes, I’m always that articulate.
Considering a Peter Pilotto dress can cost upward of $1K, I was super excited to hear that the London-based label was teaming up with Target for a capsule collection featuring women’s clothing, accessories and swimwear. Prices range from $14.99 to $79.99.
When the collection was released yesterday, I immediately snapped this up:
Now I’m impatiently waiting for it to arrive on my doorstep.
On the Peter Pilotto aesthetic (per a Target press release):
"Our brand is about print, yes, but it’s also about the emotional feeling you can get from color and color combinations."
For Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos (the duo behind Peter Pilotto), 2014 is already off to a pretty great start. In addition to the Target partnership, they took home the British Fashion Council/Vogue Designer Fashion Fund award last month.
The Peter Pilotto for Target collection is available in stores and online through March 26. You can shop the collection (or what’s left of it) HERE.
Not gonna lie. I found this year’s Golden Globes red carpet really underwhelming. Not one dress stood out. Thankfully the stars stepped up their game for Saturday’s Screen Actors Guild Awards.
Without further ado…my Best Dressed picks:
Amy Adams in Antonio Berardi
If you ask me, this is an all-time best for Amy. It’s Old Hollywood without being cliche. The blue really suits her coloring, the gown fits her perfectly, and the belt adds just the right amount of interest.
Michelle Dockery in J. Mendel
WOW. This gown immediately made me think of that old adage “Simplicity is the key to elegance.” It isn’t revolutionary, but it’s beautiful and exactly right for Michelle. And she wisely kept the jewelry, hair and makeup (save for that bright red lip) lowkey.
Lupita Nyong’o in Gucci
Confession: I am absolutely obsessed with Lupita. This newbie is schooling red carpet veterans. I dare you to find a photo of her making a fashion misstep during a public appearance.
THAT FACE. THAT SKIN. She is stunning. And that aquamarine looks amazing on her. Between this gown and the one she wore for the Critics Choice Awards, I’m pretty sure she’s already won red carpet season.
I’m beyond excited for her Oscars debut. She. Is. Going. To. Slay.
Also, Lupita is besties with Michelle. Talk about a friendship made in fashion heaven.
Julia Roberts in Valentino
What can I say? I’m a sucker for jumpsuits. It’s an unexpected choice, but that’s why I like it. (Pretty-but-boring gowns have dominated the rc this year.) Also, that particular pink looks great on Julia.
She looks youthful without trying too hard. Two thumbs up.
