As 2010 quickly approaches, you surely have lots on your mind. Whether it's finalizing your resolutions, picking out the perfect party frock, or trying to pin down your midnight smooch, there is much to be done in the final days of the year. But just because that glittering orb is about to descend in Times Square doesn't mean we'll drop the ball when it comes to answering all of your most urgent celebrity clothing questions¬--oh no! In fact, we've gathered a particularly standout collection of lovely ladies for your outfit-centric edification in this year's final installment of What Was She Wearing! We hope you enjoy today's story, and have a happy new year, dear readers, from the entire gang at Who What Wear!
Reese Witherspoon, who favors a casual chic style, looked lovely while running errands in Los Angeles a few weeks ago. Though her Helmut Lang Threadbare Pocket Tee ($128), Wren Karolina Pleat Skirt ($195), and Lanvin Patent Ballet Flats ($530) are well suited to a So-Cal winter, it was her cozy knit cap that really interested an array of readers. You can get your paws on her exact topper by reaching for Rag & Bone's Asiri Hat ($115), or be sure to try BDG's Ribbed Slouchy Beanie ($28) or Urban Outfitter's Marled Slouchy Beanie ($18), instead. Just perch one of these pitch-perfect picks on the crown of your head, and you'll be haute in the cold all winter long!
En route to promote her new animated film Avatar on The Late Show with David Letterman, Zoe Saldana's outfit definitely piqued our readers' curiosity. What stood out most was her L'Agence Stretch Disco Leather Pants ($1298). After all, it isn't every December day you see a darling dresser rocking a pair of leather pants in winter white! If you aren't ready to commit to skinny white trousers, you can still get her leggy look by checking out J Brand's Capri Skinny Jeans ($165)¬--they are fitted and tapered, but come in a more forgiving denim material. Just make sure to round out the look with a boyish blazer; Saldana's Calvin Klein Collection charcoal coat from the designer's pre-fall season is smart, but we also think that ASOS' Waterfall Blazer ($94) would be a stellar partner for her Kova & T's Amsterdam Top ($110, 949.515.0233).
Kate Bosworth lived up to her reputation as a fashion front-runner while doing some last-minute holiday shopping in an impeccable Isabel Marant plaid dress. Though most of Marant's fall collection sold out in days (and is no longer available), we do think that Delia's Gracie Plaid Dress ($45) would fit right into your winter wardrobe. Bosworth smartly tempered her toasty shirt-dress with an oversized Chloe Alpaca Wool Sweater Coat ($1540, 212.717.8220), which played up the dressed-down aspect of her outfit. If you're in the market for an extra large jumper as well, be sure to check out Forever 21's Wooden Buttoned Cardigan ($20). Then you simply have to grab an Ame Bag ($1915) from Loewe (or the Twist Lock Square Holdall Bag ($70) from Topshop) and you'll achieve that Bosworth glow before you know it!
Reader-favorite Alexa Chung donned a darling skirt-and-sweater for a Teen Vogue and Louis Vuitton-hosted holiday party earlier this month. As is usually the case with Chung, it was all about the mix that made her outfit such an in-demand object of your affection. We love how the brass buttons add a military twist to her Steven Alan Etta Cardigan ($248, 212.343.0692); if you are also enamored by this piece, we suggest you slip into Juicy Couture's Asymmetric Cadet Jacket ($298) or Forever 21's Double Breasted Sweater Cardigan ($28) for two look-a-like options. Of course, our favorite tomboy tempered the masculine piece with Louis Vuitton's Silk Print Skirt ($1360). If you are a fan of her flirty skirt, be sure you check out Quail's Reversible Skirt ($175). To add a final touch of polish, Chung toted the Sofia Coppola for Louis Vuitton Suede Asphalt Bag ($3730, 866.VUITTON), which is a smart satchel selection, but Alexander Wang's Daphne Duffel Bag ($890) is a very appealing alternative, n'est pas?
