Last Week, Stars Went for Tiny Dresses and Big Suits

Last week’s heatwave encouraged the world’s most stylish to bare a little leg. Chic stars turned to mini dresses and low heels for big nights and errand-filled days. In Los Angeles, Kendall Jenner made the case for neon yellow in a ruffled number by the Australian brand Daisy that she paired with a low shoe. At Variety’s Power Of Young party, Thandie Newton donned an embroidered and appliquéd dress by Ashish while Hunter Schaffer was fringed and fabulous in Christopher Kane.

Elsewhere, loose menswear-inspired separates felt fresh and cool. In West Hollywood, Hailey Beiber exited Nine Zero One Salon in periwinkle Jacquemus and Nike x Off-White sneakers for a suit that was anything but business. Meanwhile, Elsa Hosk chose a tailored suit with strategic cutouts from Christopher Esber for UNICEF’s summer gala, proving eveningwear needn’t be fussy to make an impact.

Even those who didn’t adhere to the week’s big trends kept it comfortable and a smidgen skimpy. At the beach, Irina Shayk continued her Versace-filled summer by taking the brand’s hibiscus-print bralette and pleated skirt into the water. On Broadway, Jeanne Cadieu brought a bit of French-girl chic to the premiere of Sea Wall/A Life in a beige slip dress from The Row. Even boho princess Dakota Johnson got in on the fun by trading her rock-chick staples for a polished blazer and pencil skirt by Alessandra Rich.
