Out of the Box: Look of the Week

7 Feb

New York Fashion Week started yesterday and we will be covering that in all its glory next week, especially as most shows are taking a couple of weeks off for Winter Olympics. For this edition of “Out of the Box” we’re going to be taking a look at a couple of the red carpet events from this week before we cover both the runway shows (fantasy costuming ahoy!) and those attending.

Anna FarisThis is easily the sunniest red carpet I have seen for sometime and it makes sense that it’s for The Lego MovieIt helps that both Anna Faris and Chris Pratt have opted for darker attire otherwise we might get blinded and Faris’ gingham Tanya Taylor black strap crop top and skirt is perfect for this afternoon event. It might veer towards office wear if it was missing the crystal embellishments and you know if your office is cool with crop tops. It avoids that and it’s a super cute outfit for this premiere.

Natalie Dormer InStyle Roksanda IlincicNatalie Dormer covers up the recently shaved part of her head with a simple sweep of her hair – a more sophisticated comb over and while I would have loved to have seen a repeat of her SAG Awards hair styling, this is also pretty fantastic. The Roksanda Ilincic short sleeved dress is inspired by Josef Albers bold color-block artwork which is very much on point with art and fashion sharing a stage at the moment. It’s a really great look and the midi-length is appropriate for the InStyle pre-BAFTA “The Best of British Talent” party.

Brie Larson capeIt’s been a good week for Brie Larson as she not only features on the Vanity Fair Hollywood issue cover, but she was also honored at the 29th Santa Barbara International Film Festival. I really like Larson’s slightly different approach to the red carpet and this Louis Vuitton Resort 2014 ensemble is an instant winner thanks to the cape factor and I love the combination of yellow, green and blue tweed on the dress. While I think towering heels do add something to an outfit, I also understand the pain factor so I’m very much into the brogues that Larson is wearing. It’s relaxed, but still super stylish.

Diane Kruger Peter PilottoSo we’ve got one event/look from NYFW sneaking in and that’s Diane Kruger at the Peter Pilotto for Target launch party wearing one of the outfits from the collection and showing off the trademark color and pattern fusion. Getting Kruger to showcase this design with contrasting flowers in bold color and the black and white sleeves is good move, though I’m not entirely sure if I could pull this off. I’d definitely be willing to give it a go, but as I mentioned above I’d probably not do so well in the towering strappy pumps.
