Fashion News: Teen Choice Awards bring out the Barbies
The Teen Choice Awards brought stars of film, music and TV to Universal City on Sunday night and a lot of Barbie-esque mini-dresses in bubble gum colors, too (Selena Gomez, Lea Michele, Hayden Panettiere). The look was fitting considering the audience and the event, but I preferred Kristen Stewart rocking fall's menswear trend early in a blue silk Robert Cavalli jacket and leather leggings (above), and singer Carly Rae Jepsen's red-carpet look of a palm-tree print jacket and shorts suit by Lisa Ho, and Tiki bar clutch by Kate Spade New York (below). Stewart, Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift were among the evening's winners. You can check out E! Online's gallery of arrivals here.
I saw "The Dark Knight Rises" this weekend, and Anne Hathaway is hot, hot, hot in that skintight black catsuit. She is going to do more for the black leather fashion trend that's upon us for the fall season than any magazine spread. Hathaway looked so good in the costume, in fact, that a fashion friend I spoke to wondered whether the filmmakers used computer technology to whittle her waist. Not likely. The Huffington Post reports that the star went on an anti-inflammatory diet to fit into the suit, which was created by the film's costume designer Lindy Hemming.
It looks like the next big historical costume blockbuster will be "Anna Karenina," which opens Nov. 9. The costumes for the screen adaptation of the Leo Tolstoy classic are being made by Jacqueline Durran, and Women's Wear Daily reports the baubles for the film's lead Keira Knightley were supplied by Chanel Joaillerie.
Nicole Richie's exclusive limited-edition collection for Macy's Impulse is slated to make its runway debut on Sept. 7 in L.A. at this year's annual HIV/AIDS fundraiser, "Macy's Passport Presents Glamorama," but we have a sneak peek.
