Another Day, Another Stunning Outfit for Blake Lively

April 22, 2015 @ 6:30 pm

The constant in Blake Lively‘s upcoming film? Eternal youth. The constant in Blake Lively’s wardrobe? Absolutely nothing.

After seamlessly transitioning through 10 outfits within one day, The Age of Adaline star once more hit the streets of New York in a look that would require hours of primping for most of us to pull off. This time, she played with both color and texture by wearing a green-and-silver graphic dress beneath a peach Jenny Packham coat awash in crystal embellishments. Lively paired the pieces with strappy heels matched to her earrings.

We all know that Hollywood’s A-list turns to multiple designers when embarking on a press tour—but the roster of designers Lively sports reads like a fashion-history course (Marc Jacobs, John Galliano, and Balmain, to name a few). And we doubt we’ll see her repeat any of this week’s looks ever again.

Olivia Palermo Gives Us Weekend Outfit Envy with Her Latest Look

April 6, 2015 @ 5:45 pm

While most of us spend our weekend afternoons wearing a pair of sneakers and the most comfortable sweatshirt imaginable, Olivia Palermo does the exact opposite. The street-style favorite was seen leaving Saint Ambroeus restaurant in SoHo, New York City in what is definitely one of spring’s chicest ensembles.

Not one to trump style for comfort, Palermo sported a leopard coat (lined with a luxurious black fur trim) atop a casual blue turtleneck and neatly distressed ripped jeans. She added a dose of daytime glamour via a black crocodile handbag accessorized with a fuzzy brown keychain. 

And just when you thought an ultra-chic look was the key to a picture perfect weekend, Palermo brought along her handsome beau, Johannes Huebl, and their dog Mr. Butler to seal the deal. Cue the collective “aww!”

What are you wearing?

Dorie: I’m wearing Of Mercer’s Ludlow Dress in Bordeaux–a new color for fall–a Zara knitted poncho, Pour La Victoire booties, and a black Bottega Venetta hobo.

Emelyn: I’m wearing Of Mercer’s Bryant Dress, Stuart Weitzman pumps, and an Alexander McQueen tote.

Why does it make you feel powerful?

Dorie: I love that the Ludlow Dress has a feminine A-line pleated silhouette, but incorporates the more masculine and edgy leather details. I’m all about color, so I love pairing our fall season’s Bordeaux with other pops of color and patterns. I feel powerful knowing I can tackle anything the day throws at me in this dress–from meetings to interviews to social activities!

Emelyn: The Bryant Dress stands on its own, so I can throw it on and feel completely pulled together in no time. I love that the pattern is bold and different, but the silhouette is classic and office-appropriate, so it makes a statement in just the right way. There’s something very confidence-inducing and powerful about wearing a dress you love that’s designed to stand out, not blend in.

How can fashion boost your confidence?

Emelyn: Fashion is the visual way we express ourselves every day. It’s the first thing people notice when they see you, so it’s important that it’s authentic to who you are and how you operate. If there’s a disconnect between what you’re wearing and your personal style, you’ll appear uncomfortable (point in case: me wearing an oversized, menswear-style black pantsuit my first year of investment banking). Knowing what makes you feel comfortable is the first step to confidence.

Any advice for starting a company with a friend?

Dorie: Any entrepreneur will tell you it’s nearly impossible to “turn it off” when it comes to work. It’s especially difficult when your best friend is your co-founder, so rather than separating work and life, we embrace that in our case they’re completely intertwined. If in the middle of the day we need to look at apartment listing for Emelyn, that’s okay. And if we need to leave our friends at 11 p.m. to have a call with our mill in Italy, that’s okay, too. It’s important to embrace both the personal and professional side of your relationship–do what needs to get done, which sometimes involves a bottle of wine.

What Does Lorde Do with Her Outfit After an Awards Show?

January 30, 2015 @ 6:23 pm

After rocking a custom-made outfit on the red carpet, you might as well wear it again—and Lorde is totally on board with that. The singer took to her Instagram this week to show off an ensemble that featured the black Narciso Rodriguez crop top she wore to the Golden Globes earlier this month, only this time with no red carpet in sight.

“All into reusing parts of past award show outfits (this is my golden globes top) cause they’re CUSTOM MADE and too good to just hang up and never wear again,” Lorde captioned the shot, pictured below. She paired the tank with high-waisted jeans by Karen Walker and white Stan Smith sneaks, creating a much more casual look than the glam pantsuit she sported at the Globes.

And Lorde isn’t the only star who’s been dishing on what happens to her red carpet looks post-awards show. Jessica Chastain recently revealed to People StyleWatch that she’s now the proud owner of some of her favorite custom-made creations. “I’ve been very lucky that if a designer has made a dress especially for me that they let me keep it,” Chastain said. “I’m a lucky girl, but my storage unit is getting very big.” Chicest storage unit ever? We think so.

Zoe Saldana Steps Out in a Casual Rocker-Chic Maternity Outfit

It’s no secret that Zoe Saldana is one of the chicest moms-to-be in existence and she has the ability to pull off a great many styles. And we’re loving her recent take on the casual rocker look! Saldana was seen out and about in Los Angeles on Saturday in a stylishly relaxed black and white baseball tee that featured a graphic skull print. The glowing actress expertly teamed the top with a pair of black capri jeans and black leather booties. She and her husband, Marco Perego, were visiting an Audi dealership with their adorable pooch in tow—maybe the pair is looking for a bigger car to accommodate their expanding brood?

The Guardians of the Galaxy star has been spotted in some majorly chic outfits since the news that she’s expecting hit, and we can’t wait to see what she chooses to wear next!
