While you anxiously count down the days┬--one week, to be exact┬--until Sex and the City 2 debuts another installment of Patricia Field's genius styling work, we have put together a new fashionable foursome for your viewing pleasure. And although Ginnifer Goodwin, Jessica Biel, Kate Bosworth, and Rihanna haven't been long-time friends, their individual styles had you filling our inboxes with need-to-know inquiries regarding their latest ensembles. Luckily, we have all of the juicy details, so gather up the girls and your favorite cocktails for today┬'s episode of What Was She Wearing: Answers!
It has become apparent that you are captivated by the lovely Ginnifer Goodwin and the way she dresses, especially when it comes to the charming Opening Ceremony Fringe Boatneck Sweater ($220) she wore to the rehearsals of Something Borrowed in New York. Fringe-like details add flare to basic pieces, so try Topshop's Knitted Ladder Top ($65) for a similar look. Goodwin rounded out her daytime look with a pair of Hudson Collin Double Button Skinny Jeans ($176) in Donna and BDG for Urban Outfitters flats (Arturo Chiang's Saundra Flat ($69) are a great in-stock substitute), but it was her stylish choice of YSL Panther Sunglasses ($275) that kept you intrigued. Kensie's Portia Cat's Eye Sunglasses ($50) is an equally impressive pair with a look-a-like shape and color.
A Team starlet, Jessica Biel, took a stroll in downtown Manhattan with boyfriend Justin Timberlake earlier this month dressed in head-to-toe must-have spring pieces. You couldn't stop talking about her adorable Heartloom Cassie Denim Skirt ($128), which Biel smartly paired with a Joe's Jeans The T Zoe Tank ($58) in Charcoal and Stuart Weitzman Monoman Lace-Ups ($335). She covered up with a Vkoo Pointelle Cardi Sweater ($298, 212. 823. 9824) and accessorized with a Jerome Dreyfuss Bruno Bag in Feu (the exact style and material is no longer available, so we recommend Tory Burch's Louisa Messenger Bag ($395) for a smart alternative), Ralph Lauren Cat Eye Sunglasses ($250), and a fedora hat. Try Forever 21's Denim Ease Skirt ($16), Anthropologie's Shadowsleeve Cardigan ($78), and F-Troupe's Cut-Out Oxfords ($45) to make sure you have all the essentials this season.
Rihanna's rocker-chic style is always worth keeping an eye out for, and today's ensemble is no exception. The singer was spotted around Paris shopping at Louis Vuitton and dining at Findi looking se magnifique! In lieu of a traditional trench coat, the pop icon opted for Burberry's Reef Knot Gabardine version ($3,495), making it the focal point of her entire outfit. If the interesting detailing on the hemline caught your attention, but you'd like a less expensive substitute, ASOS' Pleat Detail Waist Mac ($110) will have you saying ooh la la. Rihanna juxtaposed the sweetness of the jacket and a House of Waris Layered Plumage Pendant ($2,600) with edgier pieces like Balmain's Lace and Zip Up Booties ($1620) and Plastic Island's Lily Bandage Skirt ($142). And while it is fair to obsess over these luxe accents, we recommend Dream Mullick's Silver Wings Joy Charm Necklace ($55), Steve Madden's Seanna Boots ($112), and Topshop's Premium Knot Chiffon Skirt ($70) which are equally enviable.
The always beautiful Kate Bosworth is best known for two roles: the sexy surfrider she played in 2002's Blue Crush and her current status as a fashion icon. Bosworth was seen leaving the Bowery Hotel in New York earlier this month combining both of these personas in one super stylish ensemble that easily won your admiration. Keeping in line with spring's surf inspired trend, Bosworth wore a Proenza Schouler Tie Dye Racerback Tank ($275). You can follow in her footsteps with a more budget-friendly alternative like Tory Burch's Jody Tie Dye Tank ($85). For the bottom half of her outfit, she chose J Brand's recently popular Houlihan Cargo Pants ($228) in vintage olive and Celine's Natural Calfskin Sandals ($630). Bosworth finished off the look with her favorite Mulberry Leah Shoulder Bag ($895), which is unfortunately sold out, and Ray-Ban RB3025 Aviators ($140). To emulate the vibe of Bosworth's more expensive pieces without the financial commitment, try Urban Outfitters' Ecote Surplus Army Pants ($58), Mea Shadow's Cameila Sandals ($255), and Deena & Ozzy's Canvas Menswear Tote ($58) to help you achieve a similarly savvy look. ┬--Jessica Baker
