Red Carpet Review: Jennifer Aniston’s Ultra-Stylish November!

Jennifer Aniston is all over the fashion radar, promoting her newest films, Horrible Bosses 2 & Cake, the latter of which is generating a lot of Oscar buzz. However, during these appearances, our favorite Friend has been looking nothing short of glamorous, staying true to her go-to LBD style, as well as experimenting with bold colors & modern structure.

While hitting the red carpet for the comedy sequel in London, Jennifer stunned in a red & black Antonio Berardi one-shoulder dress with long earrings by Jennifer Meyer, an Irene Neuwirth cuff bracelet, & black patent leather pointed toe Christian Louboutin pumps (shop here). Also, across the pond, she played with separates in an ivory Bouchra Jarrar  belted peplum top & a fitted black pencil skirt. Wowing in bubble gum pink, Jennifer attended a screening for Cake in a Calvin Klein frock, burgundy nails, & a pewter Christian Louboutin pointed toe pumps.

At an In Style event, Jennifer went mod in a plaid sheath dress, velvet knee boots, black tights, & chic black coat. She looked flawless in a Los Angeles in a black & white lace Zuhair Murad cocktail dress jewelry (again) by Jennifer Meyer, as well as the same pewter Louboutins. Lastly, wearing another lace embroidered dress by Zuhair Murad, Jennifer styled it with Irene Neuwirth earrings, a bracelet by Melissa Kaye Jewelry, & black patent leather pumps (again!) by Christian Louboutin.

Clearly, the actress has a favorite style of shoe, which is similar, if not the same as the Christian Louboutin Pigalle pump ($675.00) @Neiman Marcus. However, keeping a Style Darling shopping around for a go-to pump when making the rounds this holiday season, I’ve found a comparable & affordable alternative that won’t break the bank!

There were so many styles to choose from, but I especially found the Jessica Simpson Adeni pumps ($39.99) @6PM the best price & classic look for any street-ready, cocktail party, or office ensemble.

Quickie Darling Deal & Steal: Classic Black Pumps @Nine West for Under $30!

Are you looking for some awesome end-of-the-season deals?  Well, I was clicking through the Nine West website & came across these basic black pumps.  Of course, I’m always looking for something fabulous or textured to spruce up a look, but sometimes sticking to something classic works just as well if your look is busy with detail.

I found the ‘Jennifer’ pump ($27.60) in black leather on the sale section of the website & immediately knew that I had to post about these. They also made me think of some recent looks (see right) worn by Kerry Washington, Elizabeth Olsen & Zooey Deschanel at red carpet events. Even though these are dressy looks, round toe pumps are also a good way to play down fancier pieces like hot pink cigarette pants, a sequin mini skirt, or embellished LBD.

1/26/11 Darling of the Day: Reese Witherspoon in Colbalt!

Reese Witherspoon recently showed up in this gorgeous cobalt blue Jason Wu cascade creation to help Avon celebrate its 125th anniversary.  The spokeswoman & Oscar-winning actress relies on her confident smile & some basic black pumps to show off her look.  She proves that sometimes that’s all you need- stick to something classic & timeless without any fuss.  Since my search only really included a dress & pair of shoes, I just so happened to stumble on two dresses that fall into this color family that are really similar & super affordable if you’re a fan of Reese‘s professional, yet elegant look. I choose these pumps that have a little touch of animal print to them for some extra flair at such an awesome price from Payless





Reese does love wearing blue, as you can see here at last year’s Vital Voices 2010 Global Leadership Awards in Washington D.C., here taking a stroll in Beverly Hills, & here at last year’s Golden Globe awards in Giorgio Armani Prive.  For more on Reese’s style, check out this link & here too!  Happy Styling!
