It’s the season of summer dresses, and this week’s red carpets saw Hollywood stars embrace a variety of eye-catching styles. Shine and glitz took center stage. While heading out to dinner in Lake Como, Amal Clooney wore a sequined mini by Ermanno Scervino complete with a lace trim—the perfect look for date night with George Clooney. For the premiere of Rap Sh!t in L.A, actor Issa Rae also embraced a shortened hemline. Her dress by The Sei was finished in a striking metallic green.
Celebrities favored bold prints as well as paillettes. For the 2022 Freeing Voices, Changing Lives gala in New York City, Emily Blunt chose Roksanda’s coral puffed-sleeve dress that had artful splices of purple and burgundy. At the premiere of Where the Crawdads Sing, Daisy Edgar-Jones covered herself in florals—Gucci florals that is, thanks to her appliquéd dress with cutouts. Lupita Nyong’o also shared the gardenia mood when she attended Dolce & Gabbana’s couture show in Italy, when she stepped out in a sequined strapless dress with floral embellishments (and a major floral headpiece to boot).
Though it’s not to say there weren’t more pared-back moments that shined over the past few days. Take Kate Holmes in a white Christian Siriano shirt dress, which she dressed up with strappy Reformation flip-flop heels (her signature shoe), or Tommy Dorfman in a smocked pastel Tory Burch dress. These are the easy kind of pieces you could wear nonstop, all summer long.
