Sometimes good style comes down to a feeling – and where fall's haute-est trend is concerned, it's the luxe velvet we saw on Emma Stone and Katy Perry this week. A dominant fabric on the runways this season, from Balmain to Dries Van Noten, it's no wonder stylish stars have taken note of the rich material.
Katy Perry set the tone in a wonderfully mod ensemble festooned with the eye-catching textile. The pop star paired a monochrome velvet one-sleeve top by Vika Gazinskaya with white trousers and kept the look impossibly chic with black Giuseppe Zanotti pumps and silver David Webb earrings.
Emma Stone proved that this regal fabric is the way of the future in a Space Age-worthy Armani Privé gown. The velour dress featured an embellished mini peplum and piping along the sleeves for a chic number that would be right at home on The Jetsons.
Making a case for sustainable high fashion, Emma Watson rocked a crushed-velvet dress by luxury Australian brand Kitx by Kit Willow. The edgy draping and plush texture made as much of an impact as the fact that it was crafted with environmentally friendly fabrications.
Throughout the week, trendsetters like January Jones (in cobalt Tom Ford), Dita Von Teese (in Ralph & Russo), Suki Waterhouse (in velvety Stuart Weitzman thigh-high boots) and Felicity Jones (in embroidered Jupe by Jackie) kept their texture game strong on the red carpet. Plus, pregnant Marion Cotillard and her swingy Christian Dior proved that this fall’s hottest texture makes a bold statement even in its simplest form!
