Joey King Is the Red Carpet Risktaker to Watch This Summer

Published

on

Though all eyes were on Brad Pitt and his chic linen skirt this week, actor Joey King has been delivering some stellar fashion moments of her own during the same Bullet Train press tour. The cast of the new film—which is directed by David Leitch and focused on five assassins who meet on the titular bullet train—have all been making their premiere rounds in Europe, and King has emerged as one of the best dressed (along with Pitt). There have been no traditional or boring gowns from King: Working with longtime stylist Jared Eng, she has been leaning into more avant-garde looks that are both daring and totally striking. “She’s always been a risk-taker and force to be reckoned with,” says Eng, who has known the star since she was 13. “When I’m pulling clothes for Joey’s fittings, I generally know what she will be comfortable with, what she will never wear, and which direction I can gently push her in.”

Though Hollywood truly took notice of King when she portrayed Gypsy Rose Blanchard in Hulu’s The Act, Bullet Train serves as the actor’s first big movie tour—so both she and Eng wanted to pull out all the stops for it. “Even though Joey’s been working in this business since the age of four, this was her very first international press tour, and an incredibly exciting time for her,” says Eng. “It can be intimidating to be on a red carpet alongside Hollywood heavyweights like Brad Pitt and Aaron Taylor-Johnson, so I wanted Joey to be able to hold her own.” To do so, the pair looked for interesting takes on timeless suits or LBDs. “To reflect her badass assassin character, I wanted very strong, hard, and edgy red carpet looks,” says Eng. “We avoided the typical Hollywood glitz and glamour by dialing down the über-feminine looks, sparkly jewels, and delicate shoes.”

The goal was to “inject life into vegan leather pantsuits, masculine shirts and ties, strong chunky jewelry, and platform shoes,” says Eng. So far, the pair have succeeded. At last night’s film screening in London, for one, King wore Marc Jacobs’s blue bodysuit and printed floor-length skirt, finished off with leather gloves and slicked-back hair. At a photo call earlier that day, she wore a mini Nensi Dojaka black dress with a triangular bra top, finished off with sheer tights and platform boots (very assassin-esque). A few days prior in Berlin, she also wore all-black looks that were anything but boring: They included Balenciaga’s wide-leg jumpsuit, and Paco Rabanne’s satiny, buttoned-up dress. It’s hard to make a mostly-black tour wardrobe memorable, but these ensembles have been all about impactful shapes. 

Last week in Paris, King played with more refined—but tough—detailing. She wore a sheer Thom Browne dress with a strapless corset and pleated skirt overtop. Her vegan leather Material suit, complete with a strappy Didu bra top underneath, was the right combination of sexy and classic. Eng says King has been game for experimenting—and it’s a refreshing approach that more Hollywooders should be taking. Fashion is supposed to be fun, and Eng certainly agrees. “She’s learning more and more about looking visually interesting but tasteful—balancing a look’s femininity and masculinity, as well as having hair and makeup pull a look together,” Eng says. “This press tour has given Joey the chance to show people that she is a true chameleon, and capable of pulling off more than just your average pretty dress, pretty hair, and pretty makeup.”

Rare Emma Stone Sightings Have Us Wanting Her Whole Wardrobe

Published

on

Emma Stone has been keeping a low profile since welcoming her first child, a daughter, with husband Dave McCary, but the pair stepped out for a grown-up date night in perfectly chic minimalist outfits that make us wish she would show us just a little more of her style.

In understated neutrals the Oscar winner and her director spouse sat courtside at a recent game between the New York Knicks and the Los Angeles Lakers. (It’s a hot spot; the next day Pete Davidson went with Jon Stewart and Hasan Minhaj; Selena Gomez and Michael B. Jordan were at Barclays the day before—MBJ sat with Emma!) McCary paired a gray sweater with black pants and sneakers, while Stone wore sheer tights under her slacks and Mary Jane flats, a perfect feminine touch. She completed the look with a black top and a structured white denim jacket and minimal gold jewelry. If you’ve ever been to Brooklyn, you know this is the uniform of the super-successful: basics that somehow cost a thousand dollars.

Men, Skirts Aren’t That Scary—Promise!

Published

on

I’ll never forget the first time I wore a skirt. It was back in September, and I had just seen the Peter Do runway show during New York Fashion Week, which featured pleated knee skirts styled over dress pants. Feeling saucy, I decided to test it out for myself on a trip to my local Starbucks. My ensemble consisted of a black tee, black pleated skirt that I bought secondhand, and black dress pants worn underneath. “Okayyy, skirt,” my favorite barista exclaimed as soon as I strolled in. 

I’ve always seen skirts as a genderless piece; As an Ojibwe person, I grew up often seeing men wear skirts at our annual summer powwows. But a fear of judgment and ridicule has always held me back from taking the plunge in public. Walking home with my grande iced coffee in hand, I was pleased to find that nobody even batted an eyelash. It was surprising, though refreshing, that nobody cared about my foray into skirts. (It helps that stars like Lil Nas X, Brad Pitt, Odell Beckham Jr., and Conan Gray have all been wearing them out, too.) 

Sure, New Yorkers are largely unfazed in general, but that first successful attempt at skirt dressing has given me the confidence to incorporate even more into my wardrobe. And now, I can’t stop buying them. My growing skirt collection may have something to do with the market being—for once—filled with men’s options. While one could easily shop a women’s skirt, sizing is not always easy to figure out; I’ve attempted to buy some in the largest women’s sizes, only for them to barely fit over my knees. Instead, more and more retailers are finally stocking skirts in dedicated men’s sizes—meaning I no longer have to guess or hope it will fit.

The pleated Thom Browne skirts and sleek leather Rick Owens skirts on Ssense, for instance, now go from a size 28 to 40 waist. I’ve also been eyeing printed styles from Chopova Lowena and Liberal Youth Ministry, both of which go from small to XL. While this range is not as size-diverse as it could be, skirts in men’s-specific sizes is a step forward. My most recent skirt acquisition, in addition to my classic gray Thom Browne, is a black, asymmetrical Airei skirt with frayed edging. I’ve been enjoying pairing with my chunkier knits, like my new checkered Zankov sweater. 

In experimenting with these skirt styles, I’ve realized just how easy and foolproof they are to wear. There’s really nothing to it: A black or gray skirt can be paired with just about anything, from knits to simple button-up shirts. Think of them like jeans—just a little more fashion-forward. They look especially good with a chunky boot or loafer.

Blush Nails: The New Manicure Trend That Hailey Bieber Loves

Published

on

A flush of color on the cheeks is a perennial makeup classic, but have you considered the same approach for your nails? The latest trend to hit our fingertips is “blush pink nails,” a term that currently has 45.3 million views (and counting) on TikTok. It taps perfectly into our current obsession with minimalist manicures, and Hailey Bieber is a fan of the look.

“Having a clean and simple manicure is super trendy right now,” agrees manicurist Alexandra Teleki, also known as The Hot Blend on Instagram. “Blush nails are a twist on ombré nails, but the design starts from a round shape in the center of the nail rather than from the top or bottom. It’s super elegant.” 

Hailing from Korea, in its purest form, the trend sees nails painted first with a pale pink, sheer base. After that, a darker pink shade is applied in a circular shape to the center of the nail and diffused using either a sponge or nail brush. After that, a glossy top coat is applied. 

Teleki preps nails using a base coat, then combines The Gel Bottle’s Cosmopolitan and Silk gel polishes on her clients, many of whom are requesting the technique right now. Admittedly trickier to try at home—but doable if you’re willing to experiment—her tip is to use a “small round eyeshadow brush or sponge to apply Peacćis Cosmos polish to the center of nails.”
