SXSW Conference and Festival Weekend Roundup

A number of other stars were in Austin, Texas this past weekend for the start of the 2018 SXSW Conference and Festival. Here’s a look at what they were wearing.

Carla Gugino: The actress was a beauty in blue at the ‘Elizabeth Harvest’ premiere on Saturday (Marh 10) with this vibrant, high-low variation on the iconic Diane von Furstenberg floral wrap dress. I probably would have opted for a different shoe to let her red lip and matching envelope clutch be the accessories of note, rather than bring in the additional metallic shine factor.

Jamie Chung: Making a case for colourful stripes, this was such a graphically intrepid Ronny Kobo dress—and I loved its slightly dizzying effect at the ‘1985’ premiere on Friday (March 9).

AJ Michalka: At the ‘Support the Girls’ premiere on Friday (March 9), AJ turned up the charm in a Markarian ‘Theres’ dress. The only thing about this look was that I felt the black peep-toe shoes dragged it down somewhat.

Haley Lu Richardson: I can understand why she wanted to wear sneakers with this Zimmermann Spring 2018 frock, so as to lessen the precious frill of the floral, bell-sleeved frock at the ‘Support the Girls’ premiere. But, I’m not sure it worked to her advantage, as it all seemed just a bit contrived.

Joey King: The Jimmy Choo satin-orange footwear selection for this girly, petal-pink Giamba Spring 2018 frock also gave me pause. Swarovski earrings completed her look.

Maika Monroe: At the ‘Shotgun’ premiere on Friday (March 8), Maika wore a Coach Spring 2018 slip dress that was more slip than dress.

Evan Rachel Wood: This Jason Wu colour-block, racing stripe suit was in keeping with the actress’s affinity for menswear-inspired tailoring at the Westworld Featured Session on Saturday (March 10). But, I was missing some of the sharpness and polish that she wears so well, given the out-sized proportions of the jacket and trousers this didn’t quite give off the cool vibe she was going for.

    not liking most of these.

    I like AJ’S dress, but not the black shoes with it.
    Same goes with Jamie. Like the stripes, but the shoes are too much with it.

    Isn’t that Beyonce’s Zimmerman dress from a couple weeks ago?

      Zimmerman makes this dress in a bunch of variations. Beyonce wore the Honeymooner which is a v-neck variation.

    Jamie’s is probably the best…I think Carla’s dress is a great color but needed softer makeup and a different shoe.

    No to all of these.

    The shirt and the hair also let Evan’s look down imo. The converse with that dress just remind me of mid 00s when Lily Allen was popular. Not a fan of the shoes with Carla’s dress of which I like nor AJ. The footwear I do like is Jaime’s Aquazzura? shoes.

    Carla looks nice even though she looks like she’s missing a margarita and I agree about the shoes, Joey would’ve been good if the dress were longer and different shoes, everyone else is just meh. What’s going on with Evan?
