This Week, the Best Dressed Stars Turned Up the Volume

This Week, the Best Dressed Stars Turned Up the Volume

Silhouettes came to the forefront with larger than life dresses, big trains, and superhero-worthy capes

Less can be more, but sometimes a big event calls for an outfit to match. Last week, celebrities took that to heart. Whether they were headed to a music festival, Hollywood gala, or just hanging out at home, celebrities wanted looks that could command attention. The easiest way to accomplish that goal? Focus on silhouette. At Variety’s Power of Women event in Los Angeles, Katy Perry captured the mood in miles of Schiaparelli taffeta, stealing the show in a piece from Daniel Roseberry’s fall 2021 couture collection. The “bubble dress” with its voluminous sleeves, long train, and pastel color was impossible to miss.

Lorde, the night’s other standout, was equally enjoyable. In a mushroom-covered gown with a built-in cape from Rodarte’s spring/summer 2022 collection, the Solar Power singer was elegant while maintaining her individuality. Featuring a print hand-drawn by the mother of designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy, the fungi look was an appealing addition to the lineup of sunny, flora- and fauna-focused pieces that Lorde has worn while promoting her latest album.

The week’s fashion history lesson came courtesy of Cardi B, who pulled out archival Thierry Mugler to open the legendary designer’s Couturissieme exhibition at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs. First worn by supermodel Eva Herzigova during the brand’s fall 1995 ready-to-wear collection, the high drama combination of a feather and velvet coat, sequined bustier gown, and jeweled choker was pure, outré Mugler. Wildly over-the-top, the look set the tone for the rest of Cardi’s fashion week outfits while also reminding fans why old school runways were so much fun.
