Some of the biggest names in fashion mingled with television and movies stars at today's CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Gala.Some of the big names there? Girls star Allison Williams, who chatted to legendary designer Diane Von Furstenberg, Julianne Moore, who glammed it up with pal Tom Ford, Doutzen Kroes lighting up the room in bright white, and Mary-Kate Olsen doing double duty without her twin Ashley there. The event, which took place in New York City, is held annually to help one budding designer emerge into the fashion industry — click through to see all the stars who turned out to celebrate all things fashion!
Any event that brings Karlie Kloss, Alexa Chung, Anna Wintour and Karl Lagerfeld together is certain to deliver a welcome dose of style inspiration. Last night's MoMa Gala Film Benefit Honouring Tilda Swinton brought together all those stars, plus more of New York's fashion pack (we're talking Jessica Bield to Brit Marling).
Alexa Chung dabbled in black, white and shades of grey, while Jessica Biel's heavily-embellished midi dress from Chanels Cruise 2014 line brought the glamour. Head into the gallery to see these looks and more from the MoMa Film Benefit.
Is it just us, or does every CFDA event bring out the crème de la crème of Hollywood? Stars like Diane Kruger, Lena Dunham, and Emmy Rossum were all present at a CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund event, making it a platter of gorgeous faces. There are a bevy of beauty looks to inspire your everyday look; just keep clicking!
Victoria Beckham, Lea Michele and Lena Dunham put their most fashionable feet forward when they attended an event for CFDA and the Vogue Fashion Fund in LA yesterday. Lea, who took a quick break from filming Glee season five to attend the event, wore a Calvin Klein frock and chatted with friend Lily Collins at the event. Meanwhile, Lena mingled with Anna Wintour, furthering speculation that Lena may cover US Vogue in the near future. Other guests included Fifty Shades of Grey star Dakota Johnson, who may have gotten a moment to gush with Lena as the Girls creator revealed on Twitter yesterday that she's excited to see Jamie Dornan play Christian Grey. "I'm a monstrous Jamie Dornan fan," Lena tweeted after it was revealed that the actor would replace Charlie Hunnam in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie, "Wasn't allowed to be attracted to him on The Fall because he played a sex murderer. Fifty Shades of Grey is my big chance!"
Many of Hollywood's most interesting women came to NYC last night to attend God's Love We Deliver's 2013 Golden Heart Awards at Spring Studios. Julianna Margulies, Hilary Swank and Olivia Munn — all clad in Michael Kors — walked the black carpet and mingled inside the event with US Vogue editor in chief Anna Wintour, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and designer Michael Kors. Other guests included Jennifer Hudson, Sigourney Weaver — who chatted with Michael at the dinner — and Bette Midler, who sat next to Hilary Swank inside the bash when she wasn't playing the social butterfly with the other guests.
Off the runways, the style is just as good, and so far we've spotted Olivia Palermo showing off two looks — one plaid, one soft pink — and Anna Dello Russo, Christine Centenera, Anna Wintour and Leandra Medine all sliding stylishly into their front row seats.
Head inside to see those — and the rest of the star-studded front row at Paris Fashion Week.
Fashion editors rank among the top tier of street style icons — they are first to see the trends, after all — and no one outranks the editor in chief! To celebrate the birthday of the most street stylish in the pack, Eva Chen, we're recapping this set's standout moments from New York, London, and Milan Fashion Weeks. Check out the best street style moments of Anna Wintour, Carine Roitfeld, and of course, Eva (to name a few!), and here's looking forward to Paris!
In a New York Times profile of Wintour, media reporter David Carr writes that the editrix has been searching for a new creative director for Glamour but wrote that whoever fills this role will report directly to Wintour and not to Cindi Leive, the magazine's editor in chief. A Condé Nast executive said that reporting structure is "dead wrong."
For her part, Wintour wouldn't comment on the matter other than to say, "These are very early days, and I don't want to say anything that would take the focus off the magazines and their editors, whom I hold in very high regard."
Still, since Wintour has been shaking up the mastheads at Condé Nast, both she and the publications she's helping to improve have earned headlines. And Glamour, which has reportedly lost 28 percent of its newsstand sales year over year, is primed to benefit from Wintour's expertise.
In fact, her influence might already be filtering in there: during Fashion Week, Glamour and the CFDA partnered to host a "fashion hackathon" at which teams of engineers and coders built fashion apps. And, earlier this month, the magazine released a zine filled with archival images curated by its fashion director Anne Christensen.
Blake Lively popped up at Milan Fashion Week wearing a skin-tight leather dress to watch as Gucci debuted its Spring '14 collection. She took a front-row seat next to Anna Wintour, and the two shared a laugh before the runway show started. It's no surprise that Blake made the trek to Milan to witness Gucci's new designs since she has served as the face of the brand's Premiere fragrance since last year. Yesterday's show was not the first time that her ties to Gucci have brought her overseas — Blake travelled to Shanghai to take on promotional duties for the launch ceremony for the high-luxury brand's fragrance back in June.
Blake is coming off a celebratory occasion of her own, as she and her husband, Ryan Reynolds, marked their one-year wedding anniversary last week. While Blake is clearly one of the most fashionable famous faces in Hollywood, she admitted that she may be the underdog when it comes to style in her relationship for a feature in this month's issue of Lucky magazine. Blake revealed, "I'm very lucky to be with someone who has better taste than me. We influence each other in different ways. With film and TV, you don't see the results for months. Building a home, you get immediate gratification."
The US Open has just finished in NYC, and we're looking to the stylish celebrity attendees to show us how to resist the temptation to reach for blue jeans and a team jersey the next time we hit up a sporting event. Anna Wintour even took a break from New York Fashion Week to take in tennis. (Fun fact: she wore the same dress that she wore earlier that day to Victoria Beckham's Spring 2014 show.) Other fashionable fans include Kate Upton, Miranda Kerr, Naomi Campbell, and Karolína Kurková, who all hit up this year's tennis tournament in outfits worthy of their most stylish engagements.
