After a week filled with colourful looks from Hollywood’s top stars, it’s safe to say that spring is officially in full bloom. To no one’s surprise, Dior’s newest face – Rihanna – took the style reigns this week in a full bubblegum-pink look by Pascal Millet featuring a classic topper, strapless jumpsuit and fur stole, anchoring the look with complimentary, jewel-accented Louboutins.
Newly shornGirls star Lena Dunham also hopped on the pastel train in a fun, A-line frock by Canadian Tanya Taylor at the New York premiere of It’s Me, Hilary: The Man Who Drew Eloise, cleverly mixing prints with a pair of polka-dotted Bionda Castana pumps.
Shailene Woodley, Cate Blanchett and model Jourdan Dunn also infused brights into their wardrobes this week. Shailene opted for an amber, colour-block dress by Emilia Wickstead at the Berlin premiere of Insurgent, while Cate stepped out at the Australian premiere of Cinderella in a contrasting melon-and-lavender frock by Roksanda Ilincic and classic black pumps. Jourdan chose a richly coloured fringe design by Balmain for a soiree in celebration of the fashion house’s London store opening.
But as much as vibrancy took the reins this week, celebs also scored major points in classic black and white.
Julianne Hough sported an all-white ensemble ( one of spring’s hottest trends!) at the Extra TV studios in New York featuring another must-have seasonal item: culottes! She paired them with a cropped button-up by A.L.C. and Kurt Geiger’s snake-print Ellen pumps. Sophie Hunter and Kaley Cuoco also went full-on neutral this week – Sophie in a black-and-white Mario Schwab gown with a semi-sheer underlay, and Kaley in an open-back satin look by Camilla and Marc at a benefit in Beverly Hills. And last but certainly not least, actress Rose Byrne took to the South by Southwest Adult Beginners premiere in a black-and-white, mixed-media dress by Prabal Gurung.
