This week's style winners were all about menswear-inspired looks and bold accessories with a sprinkle of ladylike luxe. Ashley Madekwe kept up her borrowed-from-the-boys streak in a sultry dark-green suit, Nikki Reed punched up her crisp white blouse with a neon BaubleBar necklace and red t-strap ShoeMint sandals, and Solange Knowles's pink Twenty8Twelve shorts suit and striped Nicholas Kirkwood sandals stole the show. Also worth a second look this week were Jennifer Lopez, Jessica Alba, Taylor Swift, and Ashley Olsen. Get a closer look at this week's standouts, then shop their looks for yourself.
Taylor Swift has a brand-new Fall bag, and she put it on display with a preppy chic ensemble in London. Her Mark Cross tan satchel ($2,350) accompanied this French Connection contrast-collar top ($128), a mustard cardigan, AG polka-dot jeans ($128, originally $184), Charlotte Olympia velvet cat loafers, a classic pearl necklace, and Ray-Ban Wayfarers. If you love Taylor's latest look, get her exact bag, top, jeans, shoes, and sunglasses to wear all together like she did or mix them in with your other closet staples.
We just can't help but share this snapshot we took today from the Marie Saeki showroom of one of Selima Optique's new Spring 09 styles. The grey and black frames have rich layers of monochromatic tones. Our first thought was a vision of these glasses in a wardrobe filled with black, grey, and brown basics. If you can't stand latex, better stick with what is considered classic. Let's pray for eyeglass prescriptions come Spring!!
There's nothing fancy about it and that is why I gravitate towards AG Adriano Goldschmied's current ad campaign. Unlike so many colorful, controversial and over-the-top ads out there, this one is understated and ultra cool. Angela Lindvall looks hip in her high-waisted itty bitty jean shorts and black and white striped tank. And her leading lad's dangerous looks appeal to my weakness for bad boys. The pad they're frolicking in is not too shabby either - very Hollywood Hills. What do you all think of this ad?
