I really liked these pictures I saw recently of Keri Russel's personal style -- a lot of simple pieces layered with different colors and patterns complementing eachother. She described it as menswear-influenced, but with feminine details.
Some of the labels she mixed together in these photos were: J.Crew, Cacharel, Vena Cava, Dolce & Gabbana, American Eagle Outfitters...
I love Kate Hudson and her style in general, but I especially liked this photo shoot of her in January's InStyle magazine. I love the mix of black lacy lingerie with "comfort wear" -- rough knits and cotton jersey. To me it's a great way to layer in the winter and keep warm, without feeling like your outfits are completely boring and unsexy.
"If I'm not feeling good, I load on lots of jewelry. It gives me energy and makes me feel kind of happy."
Three of my favorite looks from events this week are Penelope Cruz (with co-star from Vicky Cristina Barcelona --a must see film!-- Rebecca Hall), Rosario Dawson in Bottega Venetta at a 7 Pounds premiere, and Coco Rochas in Chanel.
Coco's look reminded me of another Chanel spokesmodel who always looks fantastic in their dresses as well as more andogynous looks (white shirts with black ties), and these pictures that I saw a few weeks ago.
And when you see pictures of Keira out with her mother, it's obvious where she gets her style sense from (love the stripes and her mother's belt and boots):
"Beauty is such a gift that we don’t know how to be grateful for it. We especially don’t want to give it up. We do our best to preserve our youth and control beauty. Yet, it’s the best way to lose it."
from Garance Dore, which now has the posts translated into english!
Today for the first time I saw this new Dior ad with Marion Cotillard, and I love it. Beautiful view, beautiful composition, everything. I especially like the "natural" look they gave her, since I'm only really used to seeing her all glammed up at the Oscars, or deep (in makeup) in character.
The best way that I've found to "get to know" her though was in the Oscars Roundtable discussion from last year that I just saw recently. It has all the nominated actors talking about their lives and their work, and seeing them all interacting together you can really get a sense of their personalities more than in interviews. Skip the long introduction and take a look below:
I love this jersey dress with a cat illustration, and I also like the overall styling of the campaign for these new clothes. A tip for people shopping topshop.com from the US though -- based on how well our currency is doing now against the pound, it's cheaper overall to buy on the british site; the US prices are more than doubled.
