Uncomplicated Fashion’s last subject was Zoe Saldana in classic black and white ensemble by Michael Kors. This month, I am featuring Alexis Bledel.
The blue-eyed beauty was seen at Coach Hosts an Evening of Cocktails and Shopping to Benefit the Children’s Defense Fund in Santa Monica. She chose a polished look consisting of a black sleeveless tank by Acne and a black and white geometric printed skirt from Etro’s Spring 2011 collection. She accessorized with Coach’s Kristin Embossed Python Crossbody Bag, black flats from Brian Atwood, jewelry by Kara Ackerman Designs and Herndon Heald and rounded out the look with a bold red lip, giving the ensemble some color.
The look is so clean and effortless, showing that flats can be just the things to make an outfit perfect. Etro is one of the best luxury brands around and the skirt perfectly echoes its trademark prints and femininity.
For Fall 2011, the prints and patterns continued in a psychedelic whirlwind of colors, textures and silhouettes. Veronica Etro put the fun back in dressing with statement-making pieces that would stand out in any woman’s wardrobe. Nothing was off limits including a colorful one-shoulder printed gown fit for the red carpet on Abbey Lee Kershaw, Arizona Muse’s coat adorned with furry sleeves and a silver metal waist-cinching belt, a slightly conservative printed dress on Joan Smalls and so much more. No matter how wild the colors or patterns, each piece fit the models perfectly, showing that the collection is wearable if anyone dares to actually wear it.
Etro showed that the trouser is back for Fall in a variety of silhouettes, shades and textures: pleated slouchy wide-leg trousers on Magdalena Frackowiak, Britt Maren’s amazing orange cropped pair and midnight blue metallic cropped trousers on Caroline Brasch Nielsen.
My favorite piece was a glittery gold gown worn by Abbey Lee again which is a must-wear for Hollywood’s boldest actress. It will immediately turn any woman who wears it into a modern-day Greek goddess and I hope that someone is brave enough to try it this year. Definitely a “more is best” approach for Fall and definitely right up my alley.
