Style Stealer: Kerry Washington’s Graphic Garment

Kerry Washington’s Mary Katrantzou dress is sleek, colorful and totally awesome. It also costs upwards of $2000, which means you could either pay your rent for a couple of months, or buy this dress. We say, pay your rent and go for a less expensive version of this graphic, thoroughly modern look.

You know, I never took Elizabeth Banks to be particularly on-point fashion-wise. And then she killed it earlier this week by wearing a gorge and very structural Mary Katrantzou dress to the Met Costume Institute Ball. Here, at a New York screening for her new film “What To Expect When You’re Expecting,” Banks follows it up with a sassy and somewhat avant garde number from Peter Pilotto. As Ramona Singer of “The Real Housewives of New York” might slur after sloshing back a carafe or two of Pinot Grigio, “KADOOZE!”

Mary Katrantzou is a designer who takes a lot of risks, and they often pay off. But in the case of this bizarre printed frock-cum-apron worn by January Jones at a screening of “La Revolucion Bleue,” well, the risks certainly didn’t pay off. As Coco Chanel once famously pointed out, before you leave the house, it’s always good to remove at least one accessory. This dress is like 47 accessories too many. Next time, January.

This gorgeous dress is just a taste of designer Mary Katrantzou’s forthcoming collection for TopShop. Not her first for the retailer, but by far her biggest, it will offer 14 pieces and hit stores in February 2012. Her work is characterized by a boldness of silhouettes and prints, and artful attention to the female form.  Katrantzou is a recipient of NEWGEN funding, a launchpad program from new designers (notable alumni include Christopher Kane), and has been rocking the industry since her debut show in Fall 2009. Her spring 2012 collection, alit by the theme ”man meets machine meets mother earth,” features delicious chiffon and a whirlwind of flowers, feathers and metallic tinted tulle. Sigh. Sign us up.

At London Fashion Week, Mary Katrantzou Dresses Models Like Rooms

For her first collection, designer Mary Katrantzou sent models down the runway at London Fashion Week wearing graphic dresses depicting domestic interiors. On some, the skirts resembled lampshades. “With this collection,” she told the press, “I wanted to put the room on the woman, rather than the woman in the room.” [Style.com] Keep reading »
