Hollywood’s biggest and most anticipated trilogy since Twilight made its appearance on the red carpet in designer style, proclaiming Jennifer Lawrence’s fashion debut a BIG hit. For the LA premiere of The Hunger Games, Jennifer looked as fierce and striking as her character, Katniss Everdeen, in a gorgeous Prabal Gurung gold dress from the Fall 2012 collection. Within minutes of pictures hitting the internet, the designer tweeted, “BEYOND IM speechless," adding, “Beyond ecstatic.” And it seems like most agreed. Red Carpet Fashion commented, “It's only March, but Jennifer Lawrence's @prabalgurung gown is already on my Best Dressed Of The Year list.” For the London premiere, Jennifer continued her gold streak in another striking number. FabSugar tweeted along with most of fashion-dom, “Jennifer Lawrence shines in custom Ralph Lauren for #hungergames London premiere." @ElleUK agreed naming, “Jennifer Lawrence: Hollywood’s new golden girl.”
But Jennifer wasn’t the only star trending due to an incredible fashion taste, or stylist. Her Hunger Games co-star, Elizabeth Banks, worked the premieres in equal fashion glory. A possible favorite? According to @BritishVogue, “Elizabeth Banks gives @MarcJacobs autumn/winter 2012-13 collection its red carpet debut in some serious sparkle” at the Paris premiere. Miley Cyrus also turned heads at the LA premiere in a sexy Emilio Pucci sparkly 2 piece. Hollywood stylist, Barbra Horowitz, approved, tweeting “like this Emilio Pucci 2 piece for Miley Cyrus and her hair looks great…it's hippy chic!” Stylist and Blogger Andrew Mukamal questioned the starlet’s too sexy choice. “It's borderline RUDE that Miley Cyrus wore this @EmilioPucci crop top to the Hunger Games premiere? #WAYHOT #SorryJenn."
John Galliano Reinvents Schiaparelli?
One of the most powerful rumors this week in the fashion twitter domain was asked by @BritishVogue, among countless others: Is John Galliano really set to reinvent Schiaparelli? An explosion of twitter comments ensued regarding both comebacks. Prolific blogger @SusieBubble was delighted: “The thought of Galliano at Schiaparelli is too tantalizing for words…” The madness slowed down as the rumor was quickly debunked by Styleite's tweet, “It’s confirmed: John Galliano is not going to Schiaparelli.”
CFDA Fashion Nominees
The CFDA announced this year’s Fashion nominees and honorees. Securing the coveted Women's Wear Designer of the Year nod, the Marc Jacobs team happily re-tweeted and thanked, “@CFDA: Womenswear Designer of the Year nominees: @MarcJacobsIntl, @therow, and @proenzaschouler thanks & congrats all!” @FashionWeekNYC congratulated "@tommyhilfiger on getting the Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement award! #cfda." The Cut addressed this year’s heavily talked about Fashion Icon Award: “@CFDA gives Johnny Depp the Fashion Icon award. He's the first guy to ever receive the honor, & who is more deserving?” I couldn't agree more.
'Fashion Star' Debuts to Mixed Reviews
The latest fashion reality TV show, Fashion Star hit the air and despite featuring celebrity and designer judges like Jessica Simpson, John Varvatos, and Nicole Richie, received mixed reviews. Supermodel Hillary Rhoda tweeted her support to the contestants, “Chin up, boys. You're on TV! #FashionStar.” However, most of the positive love ended at that. The Fug Girl’s joked, “#FashionStar is like one giant Baby Phat show, but with surprisingly MORE headdresses. –H.” Us Weekly’s Accessories Editor, Hannah Deely, expressed boredom tweeting, “#FashionStar is like Sleepytime Tea, it brings on the zzzzzzz. One big snoozeeeee." Harper Bazaar’s Web Editor, Kerry Pieri was less than pleased commenting, “This is a sad night for the national perception of the fashion industry.” While Twitter members disagreed over the show’s appeal, one thing is for sure, it received a whole lot of hits. Style.com’s Fashion feed tweeted, “Now trending on TweetChic by @styledotcom: #FashionStar.”
25 Most Powerful Stylists
The Hollywood Reporter ranked the 25 most powerful stylists in this week’s issue. Fashionologie raved, Debuting for the first time in the number 1 spot, “Kate Young has been named the most powerful stylist of 2012.” Kate’s rise to number 1 was big news, but the even bigger question in the twitter-sphere: where did Rachel Zoe land? Immediately after unveiling the top spot, @THR submitted a video explaining “Why @RachelZoe Isn’t Number One on the 25 Most Powerful Stylists List.” The reason? “Rachel Zoe is ‘too big to rank,'" an answer that Fashionista.com agreed with.
