Over the past week, actors, musicians and entrepreneurs alike have been descending on Austin for South by Southwest (SXSW). The annual music, film, tech and culture festival featured an increasing emphasis on fashion this year and included appearances by Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover model Ashley Graham, the makeup line Glossier’s Emily Weiss and Ms. Olivia Pope herself, actress Kerry Washington.
Editors from Instyle and Marie Claire flocked to Texas’ “weirdest” city to catch glimpses of to-die-for outfits during the many film premieres, panel events, concerts and showcases. The usual cast of bloggers, DJs and It-girls did not disappoint, but don’t miss out on some of the best styles seen on SXSW’s red carpet.
1. Zoey Deutch
The “Everybody Wants Some” actress nailed it at the film’s March 11 premiere in a dark and frothy Rodarte dress, blonde crimped updo and berry stained lips.
2. Zoe Kazan
Independent film’s sweetheart mastered quirky-chic, as per usual, at the March 12 screening of the crime comedy “War on Everyone” in a Peter Pan collar, oversized bow and wavy blunt bob.
3. Kerry Washington
“Scandal” star Kerry Washington walked the SXSW red carpet in head-to-toe black and yellow, including a bejeweled daisy Dolce & Gabbana frock, a leather handbag with metal edges and strappy sandals.
4. Kate Bosworth
Bosworth proved metallics can be mixed at Refinery29’s School of Self Expression Presented by Neiman Marcus in a shining gold and silver dress by N°21 and pointy toe black pumps.
5. Jenny Slate
The standup comedian demonstrated she could rock serious style at the debut of her film “My Blind Brother” in a flowy floral dress complete with one of this season’s top trends: exposed shoulders.
