• This Week in Chic: Chanel’s The Little Black Jacket Event, Genevieve Jones, Kerry Washington, and More!

    Happy Thursday all! The weekend is almost upon us and I cannot wait for it to get here!

    The big deal event this week was Chanel’s The Little Black Jacket Event, which all my favorite stylish stars attended. You know people must bring their A-game in the presence of Monsieur Lagerfeld! Of course, a bunch of other celebrities were seen out and about.

    Let’s get into this week’s looks!

    Lisa Bonet and Zoe Kravitz  were in attendance at Chanel’s The Little Black Jacket Event. We all know Chanel’s signature colors are black and white, so that is what the stylish mother and daughter pair opted for. Lisa is always boho chic, but this ensemble ages her: she has an amazing figure and I need her to show it off more! Loving Zoe’s new ‘do: I haven’t seen her this polished in quite sometime.

    A stylish, high-fashion event wouldn’t be complete without Pharrell’s presence and he showed up in his beloved BBC Stencil Washed Denim and his Chanel combat boots. Even though he practically repeated the same look in less than a month (and we all know Pharrell has racks on racks on racks of clothes), I can’t help it: I love this man!

    Joan Smalls went glam in a nude semi-sheer gown with floral embroidery. Hot! You might recognize this dress because Rita Ora rocked it in Cannes. I’ve ventured back a few seasons in the Chanel archives and couldn’t find it, but regardless of the designer, it’s a great dress!

    Theophilus London dressed down for the event in a Syracuse hat, Harley Davidson tee, denim, and velvet slippers. I’m a big fan of his style, but this look is just…..crazy.

    I always like Hannah Bronfman’s looks and she kept it simple in a black tuxedo dress and a great pair of purple sandals. Chic!

    The man of the night looked pretty fabulous in his black and white suit. Hey Karl!

    Any fashion-minded person knows that Carine Roitfeld and Karl Lagerfeld are great friends and she kept it pared down in navy and black.

    Last, but not least was Fabiola Beracasa who brought some color to the party. Her printed dress and ankle-wrap sandals are cute! She has great maternity style.

    I’m surprised that Genevieve Jones wasn’t at the Chanel event, but she looked great heading to the Boom Boom Room in New York City for the 2012 CFDA Fashion Awards Afterparty. I am not a huge fan of mixing brown and black, but Ms. Jones did it well here.

    The Kardashian sisters stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! in Hollywood. Kim wore a long-sleeve leather dress paired with lace peep-toe pumps from Christian Louboutin. I know you guys are hoping Kim wears some color, but how you can dislike a look like this? I think it’s fab!

    Khloe also opted for all-black in a turtleneck dress and those coveted Christian Louboutin Lady Daf Python Mary Jane Pumps. I do like both looks from the sisters, but isn’t it hot in Hollywood?

    Jordin Sparks stole the show at the 2012 CMT Awards in Nashville. She wore a coral chiffon gown from Kevan Hall. She looks absolutely gorgeous!

    Christina Milian kept it simple at the Colgate Optic White Beauty Bar in LA. I didn’t recognize her at first!  I like her pared down makeup and hair, though I just wish she would have chosen a different pair of shoes: entirely too heavy for such an easy dress.

    Eva Mendes stepped out with her boo Ryan Gosling, after attending his mom’s graduation in Canada. I would have loved a more polished hairstyle on Eva here, but they’re a hot couple no?

    Fergie was spotted in New York City in a draped jacket, printed dress, and metallic pumps. Her two-tone Birkin = to die for!

    Our First Lady Michelle Obama looked fab in D.C., while talking to the Associated Press about her new novel, American Grown. A perfect look for Spring and Summer!

    Freida Pinto kept it casual while attending a Lana Del Rey concert with a friend in LA. After all of her showstopping Cannes looks, it’s nice to see her dressed down.

    More couples… Halle Berry and her fiancé Olivier Martinez took a stroll through the streets of NYC. Another good looking pair! I’m going to need Halle to change her hair though…

    Kerry Washington was also in New York City, making an appearance at MTV Studios. Her printed dress is great!

    Va-va voom! Sanaa Lathan looked hot at the 2012 Drama Desk Awards. A more simple sandal would have been best here but her hair and makeup are giving me life!

    That’s all folks! Who had your favorite looks this week?
