Welcome to the first Mr. Blasberg’s Best-Dressed List of the new year! Derek Blasberg, our editor at large, is back with his weekly roundup of style, and his eye was cast far and wide for the first installation of 2013. From a snowy his-and-hers puffy look on Anne Hathaway and Valentino on holiday in Gstaad to a couple of chic New Yorkers at Blasberg’s stationery launch in New York, this week ran the gamut. On the bundled-up side of things were Jessica Chastain, Gwyneth Paltrow and Gwen Stefani, all of whom looked seriously stylish on the streets. But how could Derek forget the likes of Naomi Watts, Elle Fanning, Hilary Rhoda and Leigh Lezark, who ended 2012 looking as stylish as they started it? For a full list, click through the slide show.
Hilary Rhoda at Derek Blasberg x Opening Ceremony Stationery Launch
The holidays were very special for me, not just because it is one of the few times a year the fashion industry takes a break but also because I launched a line of stationery with Opening Ceremony. To fete the line, I had a tea party at the St. Regis hotel. Now, a pre-holiday tea party in an uptown hotel might have been a hurdle for some girls, but not for Hilary Rhoda, the face of Estée Lauder, whose American style I have long admired. Hilary showed up looking sophisticated and sweet in her black bell-bottoms and Chanel jacket. It was just the right blend of Upper East Side lady and laid-back model.
