Proenza Schouler might be ditching the States for Paris this season, but the brand is hardly forgotten back at home, even all the way over on the west coast. At the Santa Barbara International Film Festival this past weekend, Naomie Harris wore a black-and-white ensemble from their spring 2017 collection, tiding the industry over until the brand’s first European show and keeping her red carpet appearances just as award-winning.
Who: Naomie Harris.
When: Saturday, February 4.
Where: The Santa Barbara International Film Festival in California.
What: A black-and-white asymmetrical skirt and crop top by Proenza Schouler and clutch by Lee Savage.
Why: The Oscars are still a few weeks off, but Moonlight actress Naomie Harris has already found herself with a spread of praise for her show-stopping, Best Supporting Actress-nominated performance in the film, which has her playing a mother who struggles with drug addiction over the course of several decades (even though she somehow filmed it all in just three days.) All that also means the actress is landing even more attention on the red carpet, where she’s been carving out a very asymmetrical niche for herself, and still staying true to the cutouts she’s worn since her David Bond days. Over the weekend in Santa Barbara, Harris showed up to the Virtuoso Awards at the International Film Festival in a more California-appropriate interpretation of another black-and-white look she wore a few weeks ago at a gala dinner in Geneva: a polished, long-sleeved sheath dress with a thigh-high slit by Alexandre Vauthier. Still sticking to monochromes, this time around Harris got a bit more casual, shifting the cut-outs to her midriff with a ruffled crop top and asymmetrical skirt by Proenza Schouler—and making room for a bit of color in the form of the camel coat worn by her date and costar, Mahershala Ali.
