Stars at the Oscars Wore Armani

The Oscars: they came, they happened—perhaps you heard things got interesting—and stars wore Giorgio Armani.

When the dress code is black tie, you cannot and will not go wrong with an Armani tuxedo. The famed Italian brand also makes gowns—that’s what Viola Davis wore when she gave an acceptance speech that was better than most movies—and below you’ll find images of both from the 89th Academy Awards.

Get the Look: Street Style at Etro, Emporio Armani and Giamba

QuadMilan2Gimlet-eyed Crystal Nicodemus is busy snapping street-style starlets during Fashion Week. Here are her photos to inspire you for next season (or this one), and some wardrobe picks to help you get the look.Milan Fashion Week Spring 2016 Street Style

Clearly, the monochromatic style is here to stay, especially in all white. Anna Fasano added some interesting texture to her ensemble outside Emporio Armani with a modern mesh skirt and metallic oxfords. The button-up is one of the most in-demand pieces of the season, and this long, side-cut style is crisp and cool. Mirrored sunnies and a mini handbag keep the look minimalist.

Giorgio Armani on His 40th Anniversary

This past June, Giorgio Armani opened Armani/Silos, his own museum in the center of Milan, to showcase his life and work. It’s been a big year for the house of Armani—but not as big as 1975 was.

Forty years ago the legendary brand began, and today it is one of the most successful fashion companies in the world. But this is an industry that tends to favor the future. There were celebrations around the anniversary and the Armani/Silos opening, and then it was time to get back to work. Yesterday in Milan, the house presented their spring ’16 collection, and we were lucky enough to get some time with the iconic designer himself.

Here’s what Giorgio Armani has to say about consistency, passion, dedication and desire—and images from a new, super striped collection that contains threads of the past four decades even as it walks confidently forward.

Armani Presents Armani/Silos in Milan

How would you celebrate 40 years in fashion? Just weeks ago in Milan, on the exact same day that the city’s 2015 Expo opened, Giorgio Armani nodded at the past and the future with Armani/Silos—a museum of his work and times. Set to be open through the end of October, the first exhibit is a showcase of the sleek, structured yet expressive looks that established the designer’s name in Italy, America and beyond. Says Architectural Digest: “The straightforward structure, named Armani/Silos for the building’s origins as a 1950s granary, is yet another testament to the legendary designer’s practiced minimalism.”

“I thought that bringing clothes, accessories, bags and technical drawings together in a single space, as an archiving project with a particular, personal perspective, would be a concrete way to turn the past into a foundation for the future,” said Armani.

For more from the designer, and stunning images as well, keep reading.

Street Style: Anjelica at Emporio Armani

Anjelica looks like a modern Penny Lane, in the best way possible. Her fur vest, floral minidress and thigh-high boots are straight out of the ’70s, but still manage to look cutting edge. There’s something so compelling about this nouveau seventies theme that’s taken over the street-style scene. I know it’s a trend that I am dying to try out, especially if I can look even half as cool as Anjelica does.

Street Style: Erika at Emporio Armani

Erika’s look is both tough and edgy, and feminine and soft. Her textural full skirt is almost sculptural, while her leather jacket is sleek and sharp. I rarely wear skirts, but Erika makes me think twice. She looks absolutely modern, despite her retro silhouette inspiration.

Street Style: Tamara at Emporio Armani

Ciao, Tamara! It’s always a pleasure to run into Tamara from Glam and Glitter. She knows how to make trends work with her personal style. Tamara has a modern feminine aesthetic that never fails to stop people in their tracks. I love the balance of casual grey and vibrant lace in today’s look. A structured bag adds to the textural balance, while strappy stilettos inject a little pop of pattern.

Street Report: Eva Outside Emporio Armani

Oh, Eva, you are too good to us! Not only is the amazing Eva Chen, editor in chief of Lucky magazine, incredibly stylish, but she is also the sweetest. It’s so refreshing to see a smile in the midst of the Fashion Week scene. Eva’s contemporary cable knit jumper is beyond covetable—I love the tonal palette and varied textures! A cool pair of cat-eye shades and strappy sandals with socks are fun and funky accessories to her cozy transitional look. Can’t wait to see what Eva has in store for us in Paris!

Street Report: Carlotta Outside Emporio Armani

You know fashion is a priority when you’re Anna Dello Russo’s assistant. While Carlotta may not get as wild as her boss, she still has her own unique sense of style. The textured mini is a nod to fall, and the white tee and moto jacket are classics. And you have to admit: those sparkly boots are too fun!

Emporio Armani ‘Water Lilies’ Spring 2014

Giorgio Armani crafts a colorful narrative for Emporio Armani‘s spring/summer 2014 collection—and reveals a point of view on lightness, inspired by the symbolic modernity of water lilies.

Enchanted by the great gardens of our time, Giorgio assumes the role of a painter, drawing upon floral motifs that allow his creative brushstroke to blur the lines between “realism and abstraction,” according to show notes.

The delicate nature of his designs are powered by technical fabrics, exposing clean lines and subtle proportions that effortlessly drape the body. Key statements take the form of a soft jacket combined with flared-ankle trousers.

Leggings create a second skin and are paired with skirts and dresses to give each look a sense of newness. The colors and shades involuntarily pay homage to French impressionist artist Claude Monet, who was enthralled by water lilies for a large part of his career.

Take your style into full bloom this spring.
