Marina B’s A-List Fan Club

Getting your start in the family business isn’t exactly the road less traveled — unless that family is the legendary jewelry dynasty known as Bulgari. Marina Bulgari, granddaughter of founder Sottiro Bulgari, designed under the Italian brand for years after graduating college, but launched her own namesake line in the late ’70s, leaving her heritage mark to just a single initial. The Roman-born designer’s strikingly colorful gems — available for the first time today on Gilt — soon caught the eye of the international jet set, and were a favorite of Hollywood icons like Elizabeth Taylor, Sophia Loren, and Princess Grace. Today’s A-listers are equally charmed by the bold, sculptural designs: See how celeb devotees like Jennifer Lopez, Taylor Swift, and Amy Adams wear Marina B, and get the look for yourself with a stunning, heirloom-worthy piece from our sale, starting tonight at 9pm ET.

Behind the Scenes: Backstage at Carolina Herrera Spring 2015

CAROLINA HERRERA SPRING 2015 SHOW

The flashbulb-flooded scene at New York Fashion Week is de rigueur for Carolina Herrera, who showed her Spring 2015 collection last week at Lincoln Center. She debuted her namesake line more than three decades ago and was recently honored with the Museum at FIT’s Couture Council Award for Artistry of Fashion, but the veteran designer still jumps head first into each season, starting with a focused inspiration: “When I began designing this collection, I decided that I was was going to literally take the color code of a tulip and it would determine the colors. I took a simple bloom digitized into a spectral palette of color from vibrant pinks, iris blues, majestic purples to gray tones, and soft yellows.”

This season, Mrs. Herrera’s signature sophistication — back on Gilt today with stunning gowns, cashmere knits, and more — gets a high-tech twist. Traditional floral motifs are “pixelated in graphic prints with chiffon overlays and appliques on techno crepe and techno pique fabrics,” Mrs. Herrera explains. “I wanted a collection full of drama and the large over-scale flowers and graphic prints created just that.” The beauty look delivers an equally modern punch: The team worked with master stylist Orlando Pita to “create a futuristic take on a bow, similar to the way that I tie my belts,” Mrs. Herrera shares. M.A.C.’s Diane Kendal created a “Classic Carolina” face — defined cheekbones, a light blush on the cheeks, and a bold pop of color on the lip.
