Quirky finishings reigned supreme on Hollywood’s red carpets last week. A-list stars went for unconventional looks that were both fun and whimsical—rebuking the idea that only glamorous, traditional evening wear works for a big movie premiere. Take Gwendoline Christie at the London screening of The Sandman: Her sculptural, silver Rick Owens gown proved to be a refreshingly avant-garde look that paid off. As did Zazie Beetz’s look for the L.A. premiere of Bullet Train: She wore a denim patchwork Acne Studios gown that, somehow, still looked extremely polished (it was also a nice nod to Britney Spears circa 2001).
A dash of skin was also trending the past few days. For a performance at the Sunny Hill Festival in Kosovo, Dua Lipa wore a custom Valentino ensemble in bright pink—including a crop top, skirt, opera gloves, and boots to match. For the Prey premiere in L.A., Amber Midthunder spotlighted the Indigenous label Sky Eagle Collection by wearing its long, floral-embellished gown—with just the right amount of sheerness.
A dash of kooky style was even present off the major red carpets. In London, Kylie Jenner stepped out in a vintage Comme des Garcons look—from the label’s fall 2007 collection—that was covered in three-dimensional hands. It was an ensemble that, pun intended, deserves applause. Which were your favorite celebrity looks this week?
