It’s easy to draw the loveliest of lovelies in their most feminine frocks. Just have Karl Lagerfeld throw a party at the Museum of Modern Art in honor of Spanish filmmaker Pedro Almodovar, add a wall of 25,000 red roses, and then outfit practically every girl in Chanel. That’s just what happened on an unusually temperate NYC eve, and we don’t know which was blooming more beatifically, the ladies of Young Hollywood in their Chanel best or the actual aforementioned wall of blooms. Judging from above, we’re sure the answer is obvious! Hollywood’s reigning ingenue, Miss Emma Stone wore a ladylike, to-the-floor, black and white Chanel couture gown from the spring 2009 season. Karl’s current favorite muse, Blake Lively, also wore Chanel couture but from the 2011 fall collection. We think this shade of slate silver and peplum of feathers make her look very grown up, indeed. (Where are the mile-long legs and mega décolletage, Miss Van der Woodsen? You look classy, lady!) Actress Olivia Wilde is a red carpet style-slaying super STAH, and this cap-sleeved gray and white patterned dress with a dramatic plunging neckline is somewhat subdued for her typical YOWZA ready-to-wear taste. Still, its breezy elegance seems perfect for a wedding or evening cocktail event. Who else turned it OUT?

Well, there was Elizabeth Olsen wearing Chanel couture from fall 2009. She’s also one of our Uncle Karl’s new faves and quite possibly his NEW new muse. Model Miranda Kerr looked ZHAMAZE in a sort of optical illusion Peter Pilotto dress and Nicholas Kirkwood heels (LOVE THIS LOOK). When wearing a busy dress with multiple prints like this, it’s always best to keep the hair and makeup simple like Miranda did. Let your dress and shoes do the wowzing. Last but not least, there was Chloë Moretz wearing a peppy Chanel spring 2011 ensemble that included a sparkly trapeze top and glitter-netted pants. It’s an odd combo of lengths and textures, but Miss M makes it work with age-appropriate hair, pink lips, and a youthful blush that that rose wall just can’t compete with.
