The fashionable were all over the style map this weekend, preening in everything from ultra-sexy evening gowns to “Grease”-inspired getups to demure tea party frocks. So who wore what (and how well did they wear it)?
Can y’all believe Jennifer Lopez is 40 years old? The multi-hyphenate celebrated the big b-day with hubby Marc Anthony in NYC in a cut-out goddess number with plunging neckline and braided embellishments that matched her braided up ‘do. We know that “body-bearing” is one of Jenny’s favorite silhouettes but I give it to her for showing the world how to be 40 and fab–quite hawte! BTW, um, doesn’t Marc look like he can’t wait to get his wife home, mm-Hmmm…;-)
Actress Eva Mendes added “designer” to her resumÃ© with the launch of her new line of home goods, Vida, at Macys in NYC this weekend. The Latina stunner graced the red carpet in a prim floral A-line number with nude platform sandals and a turquoise ring to add a pop of color. It’s a lovely frock, and maybe we’re used to seeing Eva rocking the bombshell look, but this feels a bit safe and a little boring–is it just me? Hmm…
British thesp Naomie Harris wore a lady-like ivory and black lace-trimmed Dolce & Gabbana number to Cartier’s International Polo Day in England. Peep-toe D’Orsay pumps and a black leather clutch make for subtle yet elegant accessories. I think the wind was blowing her hair out of order so we’ll overlook the messy locks. Overall, quite chic and hot for the new-to-the-Bomb diva!
Haven’t seen singer-songwriter Santigold on the scene in a minute but she popped up at Switzerland’s Paleo Festival in her typical offbeat style. Garbed in a zany printed onesie, gold Jeremy Scott Adidas Originals, and doorknockers, she reminds us that her aesthetic is in the realm of Erykah’s, Lady Gaga’s, and Macy Gray’s, where clothing is more of a performance art. It’s…interesting. I’m a sneaker head so I dig the kicks but as for the onesie…who knows? Maybe she’s ahead of the curve and onesies are the next “It” item (hey, if the Snuggie made it)…
Finally, cutie Chrisette Michele taped “106 & Park” late last week and channeled Rizzo mixed with a little biker chic for a look that was playfully edgy. Boyfriend jeans, corset-like booties, and a tough LBJ (Little Black Jacket) are softened by Chrisette’s old-school pin curl ‘do. Very cute look for the talented R&B artist!
What say y’all?
