I have such a girl crush on Blake Lively (and this amazing outfit)! I love the way that this outfit is styled, with a denim vest over the vibrant print skirt and simple tank. The vest is unlike any denim vest I’ve seen before. The length, wash and tailoring of the vest make it much dressier and pulls the entire outfit together.
Blake and Leighton Meester have been in Paris, filming scenes for the upcoming season of Gossip Girl but returned back to NYC to continue filming. I think this outfit perfectly encompasses Serena’s chic-hippiness, however, I’m not sure of who the designer is. My first thought was that it was from the Ralph Lauren Spring 2010 RTW collection, since it featured all of those beautiful blues, but it’s not. Can anyone ID it?
EDIT: Thanks to reader Jane, who id’d this vest as Current/Elliott’s Anchor Vest in Sunshadow.
Another brand coming out with their own cargos is Black Orchid. But unlike the many other brands they have stuck to denim for this new style. The Black Rider skinny Cargos come in three different washes: The Newton wash which is a dark blue wash with fading and whiskering. Next is the Midnight wash which is a clean dark blue and last is the Eclipse which is a faded black wash (which is huge this season). They all come in their wonderful jegging material. So these are bound to be comfortable.
I think the washes of these have such a rich quality to them, I think they look fantastic. I think the little detail around the knee is great too, it gives that little extra to them than just adding cargo pockets to a pair of jeans and calling them “cargo”. The only thing these are missing (personal opinion) are ankle zips on the inseam. Black Orchid is a favorite among celebs such as Ellen Pompeo, Paris Hilton, Reese Witherspoon, and more. I wonder which of one these celebs will be caught wearing these cargos. You can purchase these cargos at BlackLabelBoutique for $150.
Kate Walsh was snapped leaving the hair salon in double denim. While she was there she tweeted, ““Going to get hair dyed, it’d be so much easier to just unscrew my head and send it over to the salon.” She looked pretty happy to finally be leaving the salon!
Kate wore an embroidered denim top from Isabel Marant and some black denim shorts. Her top is identical to the Isabel Marant dress worn by Jessica Alba a few months ago. Jessica’s dress had inspired me to do a Steal Her Style on Denim Dresses because I think they’re a great way to wear denim and there are tons of great, unique options. And while Kate’s shirt is cute, I much prefer Jessica’s dress!
STOP. HAMMERTIME. Ahhh the late 1980s…gotta love ’em! MC Hammer was so popular back then, he is considered a forefather and innovator of pop rap, and is the first hip hop artist to achieve diamond for an album. So what is Gwen Stefani trying to tell us here? Is this style really back?
Do you like her fashion flashback of these pants? She has been seen in non-denim hammer/carrot/harem type pants a few times and now below she has them in denim too. I think we need to see them on more celebs before we really decide if they are making a full comeback or not…
