TRENDING: RED CARPET STYLE
Six pieces to infuse star power into your personal style
During the Academy Awards on February 26th, there will be no shortage of inspiration via the speeches, the performers (Justin Timberlake will be performing as will Lin-Manuel Miranda), and of course, the fashion. Dominating red carpets (at the Grammys, SAG Awards, Golden Globes, and more) so far this year are trends like velvet, cut-outs, and sequins—and the Oscars never disappoint. Whether you’re bound for a star-studded party this Sunday or just want to take a cue from the latest celebrity couture, these six picks will certainly up your style game.
JONATHAN SIMKHAI CUTOUT CREPE MIDI DRESS, $995
Nude gowns are still trending, but they've taken a gentler, rosier turn this season (think: Emma Stone’s “City of Stars”-themed Valentino gown at the Golden Globes). New York designer Jonathan Simkhai offers an equally fluid interpretation, in drapey crepe with luxe faux-pearl trim.
SUITSUPPLY RUST VELVET DINNER JACKET, $399
Donald Glover exuded vintage Vegas flair in his brown velvet Gucci tuxedo at the Golden Globes. Step out on the town wearing Suitsupply’s slim-fit velvet dinner jacket in a burnished orange shade and you’ll come up aces high.
ROSANTICA ALOHA GOLD-TONE, STRAW AND QUARTZ NECKLACE, $545
Nicole Kidman was giving off a tropical vibe at the Screen Actors Guild Awards in a verdant green sequined dress with a playful parrot motif. Rosantica's archipelago-chic necklace makes an equally festive statement with its grassy straw tassels and multicolor quartz accents.
TOPMAN BLACK CHECK DOUBLE-BREASTED WOOL VEST, $130
Mr. Robot fave Rami Malek made a splash in Dior’s dinner suit at the SAG Awards. A double-breasted wool waistcoat from Topman is a looser interpretation of the traditional masculine mainstay.
MM6 MAISON MARGIELA TIE-DETAIL TOP, $285
Westworld star Evan Rachel Wood turned heads at the Golden Globes in her silk pantsuit. Similarly, MM6 Maison Margiela takes a men’s tie for its design motif in this crisp play on a classic dress shirt with an asymmetrical collar in white cotton poplin.
VALENTINO ROCKSTUD UNTITLED LEATHER SNEAKERS, $775
Nick Jonas took to the Grammys' red carpet in Balmain’s ornamented suede statement jacket. With silver pyramid studs and covered laces, these Valentino kicks likewise turn up the flash and pair smoothly with everything from a proper black tuxedo to a T-shirt and jeans.
