Let’s talk about Places I Wish I Had Been Last Night: Chanel fêted the 80th anniversary of their “Bijoux De Diamants” collection here in New York and, as one can always anticipate from an occasion hosted by the illustrious French fashion house, a host of starlets and socialites alike showed up in their Lagerfeld finest. Let’s take a look at the best (and slightly questionably)-dressed of the elite crowd…
I was all about Hot Topic and graphic Ts when I was Elle Fanning’s age, which is plenty embarrassing enough without someone like Elle running around looking consistently on point. Her sartorial sense is impressive at any age, but the fact that she’s so well-dressed at 14 is frankly kind of mind-blowing. Yes, I would do terrible things to push my way into her closet (and, ohmygod, all the better if she shares one with Dakota), but I’d still think twice before I went for this maxi dress. The shape and silhouette are undoubtedly gorgeous, but the effect of the polka dots and vintage-y floral print together is, shall we say, A Lot Of Look. I love the ’70s Michelle Phillips vibe, and Elle’s mermaid hair and fresh-faced makeup are perfect — I think she definitely made the best of this slightly busy look, but do you love it?
Who knew that April Ludgate, Leslie Knope, and Ann Perkins were so damn stylish? The “Parks and Recreation” trifecta cleaned up ever-so-nicely for an event hosted by Glamour, and I barely recognized the Pawnee politicians out of their buttoned-up office attire. Do you think they carpooled? I hope they carpooled. I want to be invited to that carpool.
Nikki Reed may not have quite the same level of notoriety as some of her more, ahem, high-profile “Twilight” co-stars, but if the newlywed’s low-key lifestyle is any indication, she wouldn’t have it any other way. Regardless, with (count ‘em!) four starring movie roles coming up in the next year, I don’t think it will be long before Nikki reaches leading-lady status. The actress hit up “Extra” earlier this week to talk the end of “Twilight” — or at least that’s what I think she was there for, because all I could do was plot to steal her clothes. This is the kind of outfit I love: cool, tough, and classic, with just a couple of trendy touches like colorblocking and coated jeans. We’ve got a look just like it, after the jump … Keep reading »
Leave it to Taylor Swift to not only find the time and wherewithal to not only ride her bike through the streets of Paris, but to look enviably lovely (and, naturally, a bit twee) while doing so, with nary a sporty sneaker nor sweaty bun to be found. While most of us claim spandex and a helmet as the defining features of our bike-riding attire, Taylor opted for a more glamorous look that’s still functional — an ankle-length skirt spares you the Flash Factor, while a cheeky (or plain, as you please) pair of flats will serve you just as well when you’re strolling down the street with your boyfriend… who just so happens to be American royalty. What? You mean your 18-year-old boyfriend isn’t a Kennedy? Well, that’s weird. Keep reading »
