Gwyneth Paltrow bundles up in NYC last week in Rag & Bone’s jacket and jeans, Yves Saint Laurent’s purse and Laurence Dacade ankle boots. Her vibrant red coat pairs perfectly with her grey boots and purse, while giving the neutral toned ensemble a burst of color . The blue-red hue look fabulous on blondes!
Strolling in LA last week, Miranda Kerr, takes casual up a notch with a bag and shoes by Celine, a classic Stella McCartney blazer, Mulberry scarf, Miu Miu sunglasses and skinny ankle cropped jeans by Frame. The reason this look works so well: the mixture of prints with classic silhouettes such as the blazer, ankle cropped jeans and tote handbag; along with urban chic, tres cool flats; and a small dose of edge with cat-eyed sunglasses.
Olivia Wilde, seen in Los Angeles at the Django Unchained screening, dons black pants and vest by ALC. Olivia keeps her look minimal with pulled back hair and nominal jewelry (long chain necklace). She makes it sexy with smokey cat eyes, pointy toe pumps and wearing her vest bare.
Kerry Washington steps out in a Peter Pilotto dress featuring a halter neckline, ruffled skirt and contrasting patterns at a Django Unchained photo call in Rome. Kerry, one of the stars of the movie, looked fresh, modern and stunning. She paired her dress with a pair of Nicholas Kirkwood print pumps that picked up two colors from her dress (the reason the shoes worked so well). Another reason this ensemble works so well is Kerry’s restraint in the accessory department when wearing a design this detailed.
Kathrine McPhee, at a NBC’S TCA event in Pasadena, California, wears a sheer mullet dress/lace-up high-tops combo that is totally confusing. This is the perfect example of mixing oranges with your apples – each are fine on their own, but when worn together…..What was she thinking??? A pair of black wedge ankle boots or green high heels would take this look from sad to fab! The lace-up high-tops are better suited to a pair of skinny jeans.
Jennifer Lawrence, at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association luncheon in Beverly Hills, takes a classic pencil skirt/pump combo and gives them a sexy update along with a dose of edge. You can always count on snake print to give a look some edge while a form-fitting deep v-neck top takes it to va-va voom sexy.
Jordana Brewster in London Temperly, looking smashingly feminine at the Miss Me album release party in Los Angeles, takes on a few of fall’s biggest trends in one dress – lace, the ladylike look and blush color.
Kelly Rowland goes down under at the David Jones 2012/2013 season launch and comes up looking fantastic! Take a tip from Kelly by taking a chic sheath to the uber chic level by combining navy and black.
Kerry Washington, also at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association luncheon in Beverly Hills, looks pretty in pink Christian Dior Skater dress with red stripes. The skater dress silhouette is still trending strong for fall/winter. Make sure to pair it with pointy toe pumps to keep the look fresh and modern.
Taking Canada by style storm, Rachel Zoe debuts her fall 2012 collection at a Vancouver Holt Renfrew store in a long sequin jacket, a shawl-collar blouse and flared black trousers. For all you ladies who think you’re not tall enough for a longer blazer, think again – Rachel stands 5′ 7″. Keep the bottom and blazer monochromatic or similar shades of the same color for an elongated look.
Sophie Bush, also celebrating the Miss Me release in L.A., opts for a more rocker-chic ensemble – sporting a leg-baring peach Erin by Erin Fetherston mini with an embellished (another fall trend) plunging neckline. If you’ve got the legs this is a great way to don a sexy look but to avoid looking overdone keep the accessories simple. The dress would also look great over a pair of cropped black slim trousers.
Anne Hathaway shows how to sport a dressy white blazer in a casual way. Seen here in head to toe Stella McCartney at the designer’s Spring 2012 presentation in New York. Love the touch of a printed t-shirt, cropped skinny jeans and nude shoes. The wristlet is a fresh new take on a handbag when you only need a few essentials.
Miranda Kerr walks the streets of NYC in style. Here she gives navy cropped skinny jeans an updated look with pointy toe pumps (Lanvin) in lieu of platforms or strappy heels. She lends her look a touch of pizazz with Equipment’s sheer polka dot blouse.
Olivia Palermo, strolling the sidewalks of NYC, takes your basic cut-offs and tee into off-the-charts WOW status by adding Tibi’s animal print car coat. Her pastel accented flats keeps this outfit grounded in summer.
Rosie Hunungton-Whiteley, at LAX upon her return from making the world a more beautiful place, wears an on-trend Ikat print in an unusual silhouette – Iro’s Olathe
bomber jacket. She rounds out her look with MIH jeans, Rag and Bone ankle boots and a Celine Bag.
Kristen Stewart, in Mexico at the premiere of Snow White and the Huntsman
, rocks the cropped top trend in a Marios Schwab top, Vivienne Westwood gray pants and neon yellow Louboutin pumps. Love the freshness of a basic white cropped top and highwaisted ultra cuffed trousers with a pop of neon ankle strap pumps.
