It’s clear that Montreal-born designer Erdem Moralioglu has become THE go-to label for countess celebrities on the red carpet. The stylish stars simply can’t get enough of his flirty boho prints and fierce fits, which is why it comes as no surprise that the now London-based designer recently nabbed the Red Carpet Award at this week’s British Fashion Awards.
The Canadian-born designer moved to London to attend the Royal College of Art, before working in the design studios of fashion icon Diane von Furstenberg in New York upon graduation. He later returned to the UK to launch his eponymous label in 2005, which is now known for its modern, feminine designs and vibrant, custom-designed prints.
This BFA prize is the second consecutive victory for Moralioglu — having won the New Establishment Award at last year's awards ceremony — but with a star-studded following that ranges from Kate Middleton (she famously wore an Erdem shift as she showed off her bump at a primary school) to Claudia Schiffer, the only way is up for this talented expat. And in honor of such a stratospheric rise, herewith I’m including three of Erdem’s best red carpet looks…
The ever-graceful and glowing Julianne Moore donned this custom, full length, black and white floral print Erdem gown to the 2010 New York premiere of The Kids Are Alright, teaming the creation with a Bulgari clutch and jewelry.
Gwyneth Paltrow made a much needed recovery after her sheer Antonio Berardi disaster, saving face with this stylish and on-trend, floral print Erdem pantsuit at the Paris premiere of Iron Man 3. She teamed the look with Jimmy Choo shoes as blogs commended her for the blossoming ensemble.
Feelings on the ever-sprightly Anne Hathaway aside, the Les Miserables actress certainly won fans at the recent Producer’s Guild Awards after wearing this pretty, embroidered Erdem number. Needless to say, she somewhat shunned the black dress code, but still managed to look as pretty as a spring day.
