While we’re usually commenting Gwen Stefani‘s amazing fashion, the rest of her family pulled a great style move on us over the weekend. Husband Gavin Rossdale brought sons Kingston and Zuma to the premiere of Gnomeo and Juliet in Los Angeles, and all three accessorized with the same red sunglasses with black lenses. So much for Mommy & Me fashion, here’s to the boys!
One of the most fashionable people in Park City, Utah this week for the Sundance Film Festival isn’t an actress, but singer Florence Welch of Florence + the Machine. The 24-year-old Brit, whose group is nominated for Best New Artist at the Grammy Awards next month, is often spotted in couture clothes by Chanel and Givenchy as well as luxury labels like Yves Saint Laurent, Christian Dior and Zuhair Murad. Over at Sundance, she performed at the Official Bing Bar after-party wearing Elie Saab (shown). Looks like we can count on Welch to inject the oft-crazy Grammys red carpet with some high fashion at the awards ceremony February 13th. Click through the gallery to see more of Florence Welch’s high fashion clothes.
While speaking with Emma Roberts about her film Homework at the Sundance Film Festival, she stopped mid-sentence to break some style news. “Wait! I have to tell you about this new brand I found,” the 19-year-old exclaimed, showing us her asymmetrical blazer by McGinn Collection, a line from the makers of Plastic Island. “I’m a big shopper,” Roberts said. “Plus, my stylists send me texts when they find things they think I’ll like. And I’m always asking my friends what they’re wearing and where they got it.” More
