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.
