Keke Palmer is a celebrity whom I love to watch during interviews. She’s vibrant, verbose, & aware of herself. The confidence & class the Nope star exudes continues with her latest interview & cover for The Hollywood Reporter.
Decked out in designers like Gucci, Balenciaga, Stuart Weitzman, Michael Kors, Simone Rocha, & Sophia Webster, the powerhouse performer speaks to journalist Mikey O’Connell about her relationship with fame, her dual identities as Lauren Palmer behind the scenes & Keke in the spotlight, as well as her career goals to create opportunities for marginalized individuals in Hollywood. Additionally, the shoot was photographed by Munachi Osegbu & styled impeccably by Wayman + Micah.
The stunning Illinois native entertains within the article, just like she has & continues to do on the big & small screens, with spotlight-stealing performances in Hustlers, Alice, Scream Queens, & Akeelah and the Bee. Keke can wear anything & say anything—audiences & readers alike are charmed & continue to want more from this multitalented actress, singer, & producer.
Check out the video below from The Hollywood Reporter as Keke discusses some of her major career firsts:
Gwyneth Paltrow had been an it-girl since the 90s in her breakout roles in Seven & Emma, later earning an Academy Award for Shakespeare in Love. The minimalist style star has dominated the red carpet for decades, embracing neutral hues, sleek silhouettes, & of course, donning shades of pink. More recently, the actress & lifestyle guru has explored more flowy shapes, colors & patterns, as well as cut-outs & versions of the naked dress!
Today marks Gwyneth’s 50th birthday, which seems crazy, but makes sense since the goop founder & mother of two is just getting better with age. Take a look at the gallery below of Gwyneth best gown moments on the red carpet & for other special occasions:
When I learned that Golden Globe-nominated actress Ana de Armas had arrived in Venice, I was so excited to refresh my feeds to see what the Cuban star would wear to the highly-anticipated premiere of her controversial film, Blonde, where she stars as Marilyn Monroe. Naturally, her red carpet look would be elegant & stunning, but also, I wondered if & how the gown would represent the bombshell icon at the center of the film.
In a bright pink pleated gown with a deep-v by Louis Vuitton, Ana graced the red carpet in true Hollywood fashion. Her gentle waves & sophisticated jewelry by Messika hearken to an era of glamour & ease that offers a refreshing twist on Barbiecore.
Additionally, the hue pays homage to Marilyn’s signature pink from her “Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend” musical sequence in the 1949 film Gentleman Prefer Blondes; likewise, the halter & pleated look of Ana’s dress are reminiscent of the iconic subway grate scene in The Seven Year Itch from 1955.
Escorted to the premiere by one of the film’s producers, Brad Pitt, Ana shines, which is no surprise. I hope this marks the beginning of an exciting & stylish press tour for the 2 hour 46-minute film that’s rated NC-17 & is based on the disorienting evocative fictional biography by Joyce Carol Oates that begins streaming on Netflix on September 28th, especially leading up to awards season!
Keke Palmer is everywhere these days! The Emmy winner is not only the star of this summer’s horror horror / science-fi thriller Nope, but also the charismatic & stylish host of NBC’s Password game show revival.
Today marks her 29th birthday & with more than 100 acting credits to her résumé, Keke has made countless unforgettable red carpet & press appearances to promote her past projects too, including Scream Queens,Hustlers, Lightyear, Alice, & more!
Keke’s style has evolved from old Hollywood ingenue to more risqué & daring; however, her confidence, poise, penchant for neon, & stellar stiletto poses make her an A-lister to watch in years to come. Take a look at the gallery below for a walk down Fashion Lane with Keke Palmer.
Oscar-winner & A-lister Jennifer Lawrence celebrates her 32nd birthday today. The actress, & new mom, is a style star on the red carpet, for sure, but the success of her fashion choices is, in part, to her bombshell & edgy hair styles, as well as her gorgeous & flawless beauty looks at a variety of occasions, including major awards shows, film premieres, film festivals, & photo calls. The Kentucky native’s look has changed since her big break in 2010’s Winter’s Bone, especially with long dirty blonde locks, a more dramatic darker mane (like in Silver Lining’s Playbook & The Hunger Games), as well as a layered blonde bob. Additionally, the Mother! actress typically opts for a smoky eye, but often plays up her lips in a dark berry, bright red, or candy pink tone.
If you’re still catching up with the second volume of Stranger Things‘ 4th season, lean in! The anticipation for the 5th & final season is real, especially as star Sadie Sink is stepping more & more into the spotlight both on the Netflix fantasy drama & in other projects. The 20-year-old redhead is the face of FASHION magazine’s September issue, speaking to the article‘s author, Annika Lautens, about her journey to stardom starting out in regional theater in Houston with her brother, along with learning from colleagues, like Taylor Swift & Helen Mirren.
For the feature article’s photo shoot, styled by Karen Clarkson & photographed by Royal Gilbert, the Fear Street star’s feminine side sparkles with lots of pink, lace, regal jewels, & pointy toe pumps, which are a departure from her personal off-screen style that includes baggy jeans, a tee, & a blazer. However, the looks for the shoot derive from designers, such as Miu Miu, Versace, GCDS, Bulgari, Moschino, Gucci, Alaia, & Prada.
As the temperatures rise, the need to stay cool & comfortable is much greater, but when you have places to go, finding a balance between the weather & your style isn’t always easy. However, Academy Award-winning actress Anne Hathaway effortlessly proves otherwise while out & about in New York City this past weekend. Opting for a minimalist cream, loose-fitting shirt & coordinating shorts, the WeCrashed star paired her look with a BarbiecoreValentino crossbody bag (shop here), Bulgari sunglasses (shop similar here), & Dolce & Gabbana sandals to shop & hail a cab.
To make this look your own with alternate pieces on a budget, especially if you want to play up the different muted tones of white, cream, or beige, depending on your style, the options are out there! Additionally, this outfit is so realistic & chic for all body types, which is why I’ve included the options below to wear when running errands, between appointments, or grabbing some coffee with friends:
As summer comes to an end, one upside to look forward to (aside from the pumpkin spice latte craze) is that awards season is just around the corner. This year’s Emmy nominations for the most groundbreaking & entertaining performances on television (networks, cable, & streaming) were announced last month, inciting shock over snubs & much debate about the worthiest of nominees. However, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel star Rachel Brosnahan earns her 5th, & well-deserved Emmy nomination (garnering 1 win in 2018 for the show’s debut season), 4 of which are for her portrayal of the lovable, frustrating, hilarious, & stylish Midge Maisel as a struggling comic & divorcee in the 1950s-60s.
At a recent Emmy FYE event, Rachel was photographed nailing a combination of trends, paying homage to the 90s with wide-leg pants, a crop top, & a peace sign pose (#girlpower). More specifically, the look included a long twill jacket (shop here), orange cropped tank (shop here), & bold parrot-printed jeans (shop here) by designer Loewe. That comes to over $4,000 with the 3 pieces & you can’t really even tell what kind of shoes she’s wearing, but let’s just assume for the fun of it that the $850 matching parrot mules (shop here) by Loewe are hiding underneath the voluminous bottoms.
In true Style Darling Daily fashion, you don’t have the break the bank to revive Rachel’s look in your own way, coordinating similarly shaped & colored separates to hearken back to the 1990s & make this yours. Check out the suggestions below for any combination of colors that appeals to your personal aesthetic:
SHOP:The Drop Blake long blazer @Amazon ($69.00, available in sizes XXS-5X) in black, ivory, rose pink, coffee bean (as well as desert sage, lilac marble, & praline).
SHOP: fitted ultra-cropped rib-knit tank top @Old Navy (on sale: $5.97, available in sizes XS-4X) in white lilies, cosmic rouge, sun worship, Mediterranean Sea (as well as iced peach, cochineal, date palm, watercolor, & dried herb).
Four-time Emmy winner Maya Rudolph may be known for her comedy chops & charm, but over the course of her 20+-year career, Maya’s evolving style is something to marvel at as she’s fearless with colors, patterns, & textures. The actress & mother of four may make some seemingly unconventional choices, but her bold desire to be herself is cause for style celebration for her 50th birthday!
No silhouette, ruffle, fringe, or sequin is forbidden on Maya, & nor should it be as she schools us all on the fact that grace, flare, & style have are timeless!
Actress Elisabeth Moss has transformed over the course of her illustrious career on both the small screen as Peggy in Mad Men & June on The Handmaid’s Tale, & on the big screen in films like Her Smell, Invisible Man, & Shirley, along with on the red carpet, exploring her elegant, feminine, & punk style with radical hair changes, varying dress silhouettes, & killer high heels, no matter the occasion.
Today marks the two-time Emmy & Golden Globe-winner’s 40th birthday; therefore, let’s celebrate with a flashback to her best red carpet looks from past awards shows & premieres!
When it comes to paying tribute to a celebrity’s red carpet history, I typically go straight to the major awards shows & movie premieres to capture gorgeous gowns that they have worn. However, birthday girl, Diane Kruger, is an exception. Even though her red carpet gowns are something to be marveled at, mostly because of how she styles & wears them, Diane’s aesthetic for ultra feminine rock ‘n’ roll with a vintage twist demands attention & admiration, especially as the German actress celebrates 46 rotations around the sun.
Diane is a designer darling, who can wear anything from a midi dress, mini dress, shorts outfit, menswear inspiration, and more, all while styling with unexpected extras, including an odd pop of color in the shoe, strappy sandals or ankle booties, or studded belts or fringe accents. I’m always excited to see what she will wear while attending a variety of events, such as runway shows fashion week, Vanity Fair’s Oscar party, an international film festival, & more. Ever since I started Style Darling Daily 12 years ago, Diane has been one of my favorite A-listers to watch out for.
Check out the gallery below to get to know more about Diane’s effortless, daring, and elegant non-gown style:
However, Ana stole the spotlight in a shimmering Louis Vuitton Cruise 2023 gown, especially with all the buzz surrounding her upcoming portrayal of Marilyn Monroe in the film adaptation of Joyce Carol Oates fictional biographyBlonde, directed by Andrew Dominik. After a breakout last two years in Knives Out and the recent 007 film, No Time to Die, Ana is one to watch on screen & on the red carpet. Every angle of this gown is beautiful & her poise, starpower, & style are breathtaking.
Additionally, the film’s cast includes Bridgerton alum Regé-Jean Page in a navy suit, Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood rising star Julia Butters in a gold sparkling gown, Jessica Henwick from The Matrix Resurrections wearing a plunging v-neck gray gown, Oscar nominee Alfre Woodard, Oscar-winner Billy Bob Thornton, & Indian actor Dhanush.
