How Anglomania Is Ruling The Red Carpet

Celebrities wearing designer anything isn't news. But, what isn't expected are the labels these leading ladies are flocking toward for spring. Lately, it seems, it's all about the Brits. Sharing the red carpet with established Parisian, American, and Milanese houses are relative newbies like Paper London and House of Holland and trendy London-based labels like Mary Katrantzou, Giles, and Christopher Kane. It's what we're deeming Hollywood's latest wave of Anglomania.
In recent seasons, as London Fashion Week has grown exponentially in popularity, so have the event's participants. Once-indie Brit brands have now achieved legitimate cult status — Peter Pilotto's Target collection is evidence of this fundamental fashion shift. And, today's A-listers are living, breathing proof as well. Leslie Mann, January Jones, Emma Watson, and up-and-comer Margot Robbie are just a few stylish celebs sourcing inspiration from across the pond. Click ahead to get a peek at the designers these ladies are loving right now, and (window) shop 'em too — that is, if you have an event that warrants red-carpet-worthy style.

Giles
Quirky designs are quickly becoming a signature of London Fashion Week. And, perhaps Giles should be partially commended for the continued interest in eclectic prints and patterns. Funny gal Leslie Mann looks pleased, and so are we.

House of Holland
Jaime King wore this chambray-and-lace matched set to a recent dinner party in New York City. Mixing and matching fabrics and genres is kinda what creative director Henry Holland does best.

Roksanda Ilincic
Roksanda Ilincic is having a moment, and January Jones is just the latest star to wear the designer. In recent weeks, Shailene Woodley, Anne Hathaway, and Rita Ora have all been spotted in the label's sculptural frocks.

Mary Katrantzou
Well, we know Game of Thrones actress Sophie Turner definitely isn't afraid of risky, out-there designs. Mary Katrantzou's whimsical spring collection is chock-full of them. And, this isn't the first Katrantzou design Turner has worn this year, either.

Paper London
From a supporting role in The Wolf of Wall Street to full-fledged style star in a matter of months, Margot Robbie is a vision in Paper London. Here's hoping Robbie continues this stylish trend of bolstering up-and-comers like her.

Erdem
Emma Watson can do no wrong these days, sartorially or otherwise. Her parade of knockout red-carpet numbers included this very ladylike, floral Erdem frock. And, let's not forget the Osman ensemble she wore for her appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Alexander McQueen
It takes a pretty confident woman to don Alexander McQueen on the red carpet. Enter Jennifer Connelly. Her gown is straight off the fall '14 runway, and the intricate detailing on the bodice alone is enough to make us swoon.

Christopher Kane
No doubt about it: Felicity Jones is pretty in pink. Pink Christopher Kane, that is. We also spy a familiar face wearing the same frock on this month's cover of Marie Claire.
