Stars Kick Off the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival in Spring Whites and Bold Brights
Nearly an entire month into spring, you’ve probably already narrowed down your must-try spring trends and gotten your seasonal wardrobe refresh well underway. And for good reason: From floral-print pieces and spring stripes to sleek leather jackets and tasteful crop tops, the long list of in-demand styles and must-have pieces for spring means you’ll quickly fall behind if you don’t start updating your closet immediately (if not sooner). But in case you’ve gotten off to a slow start or are ambitiously searching for even more fashion-savvy spring trends to try, I’ve got two seasonal, celebrity-tested-and-approved trends that will have your seasonal wardrobe in shape in a snap: Spring whites and bold brights.
And nowhere were these in-vogue looks more evident than at the kickoff of the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival, an artsy haven for film stars big and small to show off both their incredible talent and their impressive eye for style. With everyone from actresses Maggie Grace and Heather Graham to Pitch Perfect ’s Anna Camp and Parks and Recreation’s Aubrey Plaza showing up to the first big day of the nearly two-week festival wearing crisp, white ensembles and in-your-face, color-drenched outfits, it’s clearer than ever that bright whites and bold hues are the thing to wear all spring long.
Grace — who stars in festival flick About Alex — walked the red carpet yesterday in an über-chic, perfectly pared down ensemble featuring a classic sheath dress and matching, ultra-luxe spring overcoat, both in a stark white hue that looked beautiful against her fair skin. Pairing the minimalist, spring-ready look with a thin yellow belt, matching pumps, and a swept-back updo, the actress was the picture of elegance in her ladylike ensemble.
Camp kept her all-white number fun and flirty, complementing her Self-Portrait eyelet dress — which featured an A-line cut, flared hem, and subtle sheer paneling — with a white clutch, punchy red heel, and fuss-free ponytail for a look that was both fresh and refreshing to see on the festival red carpet.
Rather than going white from head to toe, model Anja Rubik hit the film festival donning a sleek and sexy white boyfriend blazer over nothing but a patterned, dramatically slit, and asymmetrical-hem skirt.
Making sure to mix both spring whites and bold brights all in one look, model Karolina Kurkova walked the red carpet in a draped, belted, and color-blocked frock for a look that packed a bright and stylish punch.
Choosing the same color-rich shade of orange as Kurkova, Graham showed us how to correctly pull off a bold hue for spring. Looking gorgeous in her flouncy, drop-waist, highly detailed Robert Rodriquez design, the actress was radiant in her perfect-for-spring hue and bronzed makeup.
Plaza took the bold-hues-for-spring trend to the next level, sporting a color-drenched, red shift dress — complete with a subtle bow detail around the neckline and minimalist nude heels — for an eye-catching ensemble.
So whether it's white from head to toe or an outfit full of bright hues, make like the Tribeca Film Fest stars and take spring in style with these color-driven trends that are sure to make you look like the freshest and most fashionable girl around.
