So all of our internship contestants were given a challenge to dream up outfits to wear to a fashionable brunch, encouraged by Ty, who wrote, “ I am celebrating my 25th birthday by treating my best gals to High Tea. I want to look classic yet bold and fashion forward. What should I wear?”
Intern 1 went for vibrant and zany, saying, “I really wanted to create a look inspired by Oscar de la Renta‘s Spring 2013 collection. It had a lot of lace, retro-inspired, and neon pieces so I wanted to create a look based on that concept.”
” I also fell in love with the Kate Spade New York radio clutch so I centered the color scheme of the look around that. It fits in perfectly with the retro vibe of the set and is definitely a conversation piece.”
Intern 2′s look skewed more ‘grown and sexy.’ She explained, “Meeting with girlfriends for high tea/brunch is on the schedule. While subtlety and making a statement is an oxymoron, you undoubtedly get a pass in this fascinating structured Roland Mouret Eugene draped cotton-pique top…the back is equally gorgeous! “
“The unique top needs no competition, so it pairs well with Donna Karan’s Stretch-linen jersey skirt which flaunts a becoming off-centered slit. Hob nob in Jackie O-inspired sunglasses, a wrist full of jewels and 3.1 Phillip Lim’s 31 Hour leather chic tote. Finish the look in Heshialy High-Heel Sandals and a dab of Chanel No. 5.”
Intern 3 rounded out the suggestions, writing, “A high fashion occasion is always a great opportunity to dress up and wear the hottest trends. I chose black with pops of color and baroque embellishment. When you wear baroque inspired pieces, make sure to keep the rest of the outfit simple.”
” The statement piece of this outfit is this embellished structured jacket from Alexander McQueen and I paired it with a simple A-line mini skirt from Victoria Beckham and a blouse with sheer sleeves. Wear a killer pair of shoes: My choice are these red Giuseppe Zanotti sandals, and accessorize with a gold box clutch, like this one from Kotur, a pair of small gold earrings and a gold cocktail ring (love this one from Repossi). Complete your look with a red lip and red nails and you are all set.”
Hmm..this is a tough one! Each look is refined, yet so different.
Which Intern’s look is more your style?
