Instant Inspiration: 5 Pinterest Boards We Can’t Get Enough Of

A Tuesday roundup of our recent Pinterest obsessions

We’ll admit it: we weeped a bit when we couldn’t make it to see these runway shows abroad. But, hey, that’s what live-streaming is for, right?

1. Glittery booties and mini dresses, oh my! Saint Laurent took mod to a whole new (and glitzy) level.

2. Sure, we spotted a few animal prints, but bold, solid hues stole the Gucci show.

3. If Red Riding Hood was into designer labels, she would own this entire Dolce & Gabbana collection. (And we’d be raiding her closet.)

4. What happens when you mix metallics, pastels, and seventies sportswear? Miu Miu F/W 14.

5. We’re pretty sure Emilio Pucci just single-handedly made printed fur a thing. And we’re ever so grateful.

Spotted on the Red Carpet: Saint Laurent Tuxes for Him & Her

Gone are the days when gowns were the only red-carpet option for women. Sure, we still have Cate Blanchett’s impeccable head-to-toe nude and Lupita’s plunging baby blue. But last night’s awards also saw a sea of tuxes.

The designer of choice? Saint Laurent. Oscar host Ellen DeGeneres wore three different Saint Laurent tuxes. Ellen Page looked edgy and cool dressed in the brand, too. As did Kourtney Kardashian. (Saint Laurent outfitted white-hot Jared Leto as well.)

Of course, Yves Saint Laurent has been a red-carpet staple for years, dressing the likes of Diane Kruger in glamorous gowns. But under the helm of Hedi Slimane, the brand is far more casual.

What would that mean for the women of this year’s red carpet, the public wondered? Thanks to Fashionista, the answer is now clear: suits. “Saint Laurent has become the definitive source for cool-yet-elegant, well-tailored suiting.”

Sounds like awards shows just got a whole lot more comfortable.
