With superheroes ruling the big screen, this week the world’s most stylish decided to look . . . well, marvelous. Mundane gowns and casualwear were left by the wayside as actresses, musicians, and multitaskers asserted their red carpet power with spangles, ruffles, and customized couture. To wit: At the Avengers: Endgame premiere in Los Angeles, Brie Larson wielded an Irene Neuwirth Infinity Gauntlet to match her lavender slip by Hedi Slimane for Celine, while Karen Gillan and Zoe Saldana went space-age in Christopher Kane and Givenchy, respectively. Even Miley Cyrus got in on the fun in silver-accented Saint Laurent.
And it doesn’t take a blockbuster to have blockbuster verve. At the Time 100 gala, Indya Moore explored transparency in a pleated Iris van Herpen that freed the nipple and everything else. “Wild decolonized unlady unclassy 100% commando nonbinary vagina,” Moore wrote on Instagram, a bold statement delivered in fashion to match.
