Remember the name Mary Katrantzou, because if recent celebrity red carpet trends are any indication, you’ll be seeing a lot more of her work. The Athens born designer has what’s become in recent seasons one of the must-see shows of London Fashion Week, and that’s being reflected in an increase of the brand’s celebrity red carpet exposure.
In one month, three celebs have been seen wearing looks from the Mary Katrantzou Fall 2011 collection — Keira Knightley, Leelee Sobieski, and Alexa Chung.
Kiera was the first Hollywood starlet to show up in Mary Katrantzou, wearing the designer to the Venice photocall of her latest movie, A Dangerous Method. She paired her ‘Caramolengo’ tea length silk dress with nude heels, and a sleek, ûber chic bob. Keira’s always been at the top of celebrity best dressed lists, and with looks like this one, it’s easy to see why she holds an almost permanent spot on such lists.
Leelee on the other hand, has always had a somewhat shaky fashion track record. She’s come a long way from hitting the red carpet looking like this (though looking back on that outfit through more mature eyes, lol, it’s really not as bad a my younger self thought it to be, and had the fit been better, would’ve been a great little look).
Her racer-back, bell skirted Mary Katrantzou ‘Kite Runner’ dress creates a phenomenal silhouette for the actress. Her classic updo allows for the perfect display of the dress’ intricate Oriental inspired fabric design.
Last of our Mary Katrantzou trio is British celeb and fashionista, Alexa Chung. She wore her ‘Lily Pond’ floral print dress to the 2nd Annual Capsule Collection for Vogue Eyewear launch in NYC. Alexa’s signature fashion aesthetic is effortless and unhurried style, and even when wearing such an intricately detailed dress, she manages to stick closely to that. The messy hair and practically barely there makeup, serve to aid in Alexa’s ‘fashion as an afterthought’ trademark style.
Mary Katrantzou’s star status is clearly on the rise, but who do you think looks best in her designs?
