All eyes were on Malibu’s notable songbird Lady Gaga at the Sunset Tower recently when “The Daily Front Row” hosted its second annual fashion show. The splashy event salutes and celebrates visionaries who make the intersection between style and Hollywood the place to be. Our lovable local Lady Gaga was among the honorees and was toasted as the editor of the year.
It was a who’s who of Hollywood glitz as presenters and honorees donned their red carpet rave faves. Famed fashionista Nicole Richie took on the role of host while presenters and special guests included industry superstars and their pals, including Alber Elbaz, Gigi Hadid, Kate Hudson, Jennifer Lopez, Kris Jenner, Keanu Reeves, Toby Maguire, Jennifer Lopez, Abel Tesfaye (The Weeknd), Nico Tortorella and Rachel Zoe.
Fashion ranged the spectrum from flashy to classy.
J.Lo looked positively prim in a classic white, ladies-who-lunch dress that could have been right out of Nancy Reagan’s closet. She stepped out with long sleeves, a proper hemline and a petite bow at the neck. Nicole Richie went for a more dramatic look in a plunging black halter gown while the Lady, as usual, stole the show with a shimmering dress in a rainbow of colors, puffy ostrich feather sleeves and black peep-toe platforms a mile high. By the end of the event, it was cheers all around for fashion in all its phases.
Seems like we just got over the red carpet madness of film season, but now they’re ready to roll ’em out all over again. Spring and summer signal the start of film fest season, and what better place to start it all off than Cannes? The highlight of the festival will be turning to an oldie but goodie: Woody Allen.
Woody will debut his latest offering, and if you are one of the director’s many fans, his latest sounds like it’s right up your alley. “Café Society” will debut on May 11 as the glam, the gorgeous and the glitterati get ready to outdo themselves. Woody opens the festival following 2011’s wonderful “Midnight in Paris” and 2002’s “Hollywood Ending.”
As you might have guessed, “Café Society” takes place in the 1930s and revolves around a lot of romance with La La Land as a backdrop. It tells the story of a young man who arrives in town with dreams of working in film. He falls in love and is then swept up in the craziness of Café Society.
It will be hard to top “Midnight in Paris,” but this is one director who never ceases to amaze.
