Schiaparelli has had a pretty good year so far.
Under the guidance of its creative director Daniel Roseberry, the Italian fashion house has some of the biggest A-list stars including Lady Gaga, Cardi B, Bella Hadid, Lorde and Beyoncé for some of the most important events of the year.
More from WWD
In addition, it was recently announced that the brand will be opening a boutique in Bergdorf Goodman, New York. This is the first time the Parisian couture house has opened a permanent space outside of its salon on Place Vendôme since it was re-established by Italian entrepreneur Diego Della Valle in 2012.
Despite the challenges of an ongoing pandemic, the brand gained plenty of traction and momentum this year, starting strong by dressing Lady Gaga for her appearance at President Joe Biden’s inauguration in January.
The design house then continued its hot streak dressing Beyoncé for the Grammy Awards, Hadid for the Cannes Film Festival and most recently Cardi B for her show stop at Paris Fashion Week.
This is where WWD breaks down the greatest moments that stunned celebrities so far this year in Schiaparelli.

What better way to start the calendar year than having Lady Gaga wear bespoke Schiaparelli to sing the national anthem at President Joe Biden’s inauguration?
The award-winning singer wore a more patriotic look with a fitted jacket made of navy blue cashmere and a voluminous skirt made of washed red silk waistband. The outfit was rounded off with a gold-plated peace dove brooch. Her hair was styled in milkmaid braids tied with a black ribbon.
“As an American living in Paris, this ensemble is a love letter to the country that I miss so much and to an artist whose artistic skills I have admired for so long. Maison Schiaparelli is honored to dress the iconic Lady Gaga on this historic inauguration day, “Roseberry said in a dressing statement for the singer. “God bless Lady Gaga and God bless America.”
The story goes on
In July, Schiaparelli announced that she would be releasing Lady Gaga’s large pigeon brooch to support the singer’s Born This Way Foundation, a charity that provides psychological support to young people. Coming in three sizes, the brooch costs between $ 790 and $ 2,150 and is available from Bergdorf Goodman or Dover Street Market.
Emma Corrin at the Critics Choice Awards
The rising British star, best known for portraying Princess Diana in The Crown, stunned the 26th Annual Critics’ Choice Awards in a dress from Schiaparelli’s Spring 2021 collection. Corrin won Best Actress for the role in a drama series category.
The black mini dress was made of bonded velvet with a cleavage using the slit edge technique and decorated with three-dimensional pearls in the brand’s typical toothed pearl motif. Corrin combined the dress with matching earrings, also from Schiaparelli.
Cynthia Erivo at the “Genius: Aretha” premiere
The singer and actress wore a look from Schiaparelli’s spring 2021 collection for the premiere of her National Geographic anthology series “Genius: Aretha,” in which she played the role of Aretha Franklin. Erivo wore a black dress made of wool crepe, chiffon, and tulle inlay under a red stole made of overdyed satin that reached to the floor.
