The celeb set has a crush: Just call him Prabal Gurung. Within the last week, the designer’s bold, breathtaking confections have made more than a few red-carpet moments on the backs of beauties who have been none too shy to show off their penchant for Prabal. No wonder he is the current go-to for glam looks—laced with a touch of fashionable gumption.
Sarah Jessica Parker: The stylista, who is already a huge fan of the brand, started the weeklong trend with a sublime, barely-pink bustier for her entrance at the New York City Ballet’s fall gala. Inspired by Prabal Gurung’s Spring 2014 collection, the romantic bodice was simultaneously sharp and soft, stealing the show despite the Olivier Theyskens floaty ball-gown skirt.
Cate Blanchett: The ‘Beauty in Wonderland’ exhibit in Italy, which Cate recently attended, was only matched by her whimsical, feathered frock from the Resort 2014 collection. The intrepid trio of crimson, black and white hues proved a strong counterpoint to that flurry of fun feathers.
Diane Kruger: Also in keeping with the red, black and white palette, the actress stunned at The Metropolitan Opera in New York City with her colour-block, high-low gown, also from Resort 2014. It was angular and sleek—and carried off in the utmost of sophistication.
Hailee Steinfeld: Exciting us with a peek at the Spring 2014 collection, the young starlet and Prabal devotee showed her edgy style stripes with an off-the-shoulder, embellished dress at the ‘Romeo & Juliet’ premiere in California. Mature and modish, but oh-so-appropriate at the same time, Hailee did Prabal proud.
