Ever since the success of Slumdog Millionaire, Freida Pinto has been on the rise. While promoting her new film Miral in London, she choose a sheer floral blouse, camel pencil skirt, chain link shoulder bag, & pointed toe heels. This look is ultra feminine & professional even for the fall. The addition of the gold bangle to match the chain on the bag, as well as the edgy black heels makes her look sensational. This look can easily translate to a family event or a proper luncheon.
Mila Kunis has come a long way from her days on That 70s Show, starring opposite Natalie Portman in the highly anticipated Black Swan. Here at the London Film Festival, Mila wears a stretch leather pencil skirt with a rhinestone embellished blouse. With open toe black pumps, a single bangle, & dark nails, she’s rock star chic in a movie star way. This look is perfect for a night out with the girls, or for an uber chic after work event!
So now you must get the point that there are some celebrities who will repeat their appearances on here. There are just so many to choose from. Here we have Taylor Swift, at the end of last October looking super casual & sexy in knee boots over skinny jeans with an off-the-shoulder A/X Armani Exchange sweater. With a simple dark green tote & drop earrings, she heads to her next event like a true Style Darling! This is the perfect example of how to stay truly casual chic this fall.
I was doing a little research & found this picture of Michelle Williams from last fall in Brooklyn. She took a stroll in skinny jeans, a printed top, & leather jacket. While wearing flats, square shades, & a canvas tote, she was all about casual chic. She proves that even with the simplest pieces, you don’t have to be a star to look cool.
I picked two different flats for this look, both fabulous & affordable! Happy Styling!
It’s about time that Keira Knightley returns to the spotlight. Here she is promoting her new film, Never Let Me Go, in London. She chose a Nina Ricci mini dress & paired it with a boucle jacket & black platform pumps. She blends softness with menswear inspiration for this special event. If you’d like to try out one of your more feminine dresses for an evening occasion, here’s the perfect example of how to pull it off.
While jet-setting across the country to promote her new film, Conviction, Hilary Swank wore dark wash skinny jeans with a striped LOFT cardigan over a white tank. Her final touches are a brown leather bag & Tory Burch booties. Her glamour is found in her polished accessories & minimalist pieces. This look is probably one of my quintessential fall favorites, as a big sweater advocate too.
So Claudia Schiffer is the second Style Darling to make an two-time appearance on our blog here. During a stroll in London, Claudia layered a short-sleeved belted sweater over a long-sleeved belt with wide leg jeans. For her final touches, she added a silk scarf, sunglasses & a black leather satchel bag. This look is both elegant & minimal, very classic & can be replicated using other regal & neutral colors.
Kate Walsh headed to New York City recently to lend support for her former Grey’s Anatomy cast mate, T.R. Knight, during his Broadway debut in A Life in the Theatre. She sported a casual & chic look with a heavy duty knit scarf under a leather jacket & over a metallic top. Also, she choose skinny jeans & high heels by Aldo to complete her very neutral ensemble. This look is perfect for a fall day out & about in the city, or headed to a casual appointment.
I know I get bored with my cosmetics sometimes & it’s always fun to be able to replace some old collections with a newer palette of colors. For those of you who look to minimalize your cosmetic clutter, a single package or container with a variety of colors for your lips, eyes, or face can really be an essential item.
