Based on the red-carpet choices of Hollywood’s best dressed recently, the designer of the moment is Antonio Berardi.
From Olivia Wilde to Eva Longoria, celebs are crazy for Berardi’s figure-hugging dresses and creative work with unique fabrics and techniques. With his self-proclaimed ‘striking, classical, dressed-up’ aesthetic, Berardi definitely knows how to make a woman look – and feel – beautiful.
Berardi grabbed our attention early on this season when Rihanna arrived for her UK Reb’l Fleur fragrance launch in a bright aqua look.
For an outfit that could so easily err on the side of ‘Muppet-esque’, Rihanna landed on the top of nearly every best dressed list that week (including ours), thanks to the excellent fit and ease of Berardi’s design.
Kate Bosworth was uber chic in a black embellished LBD. The always-stunning Zoe Saldana has already sported two white mini-dresses from the Spring 2012 collection, achieving that modest sexiness most dresses only dream of, while the equally gorgeous Freida Pinto chose an armour-inspired architectural gown for the ‘Immortals’ red carpet.
Sarah Jessica Parker, who is always a fan of impeccably tailored, lady-like pieces and apparently Berardi biggest fan, donned a marble-print ensemble back in September, along with a beautifully shaped black crochet gown on the red carpet.
She then fell in love with the Spring 2012 collection, first appearing at a New York City gala in a Spring 2012 dress-coat (paired with tights and Manolos, of course) and just last week she wore a different pair of Manolos for a day at the races in Melbourne, Australia, wearing a tailored silver Berardi coat.
With so much Berardi popping up on the red carpet lately, we cannot wait until awards season kicks in – stylists, take note.
These dresses are the perfect balance of figure-flattering and fashion-forward – we can totally see why celebs love them (and for the record, so do we).
