Whether it's serendipity, coincidence, or just plain good taste, WhoWhatWear.com readers and staffers alike seem to be single-minded in the pursuit of finding out what our favorite fashionable celebrities are wearing. For example, much like your submitted queries, we were also curious about Sienna Miller's faux fur coat and Olivia Palermo's military-inspired cardigan! Thankfully for us all, we had our lookbooks and publicists' email addresses at the ready, so we couldn't be more thrilled to go about our business of tracking down all the pertinent details in today's Answers installment!
Ashley Olsen and Mary-Kate Olsen
While Ashley (left) and Mary-Kate (right) were spotted touring Manhattan promoting their new collaboration with JCPenney, Olsenboye, this dynamic duo whipped fashion fanatics into a frenzy with their immaculate attire. Mary-Kate rocked a peachy keen Dries Van Noten Silk Coat ($1184) and slouchy trousers, but what really piqued our readers' interest were her amazing accessories. MKO's Christian Dior Diorette Sunglasses ($325, 212.931.2950) and Pierre Hardy Zip Booties ($1245, 416.964.1410) are undoubtedly amazing, but Silence & Noise's Open Front Blazer ($78) and N.Y.L.A.'s Rouse Booties ($135) will help you get the look. Of course, Ashley's assemblage is equally impressive, specifically her designer frames and soles: Chanel's Half Tint Sunglasses ($395, 310.278.5505) and Prada's Studded T-Strap Sandals ($720). Just round out your ensemble with a beautiful black coat like Calvin Klein's Funnel Neck Leather Trim Jacket ($200) and you'll be covered in a similarly stylish manner!
The always put-together Rachel Bilson proved that the gloomy weather is no excuse to let your style slip! On the contrary, the actress showed off some enviable and in-demand storm gear while out and about in Los Angeles late last month; specifically, a Burberry Harbourne Trench Coat ($975) and Jimmy Choo for Hunter Wellington Boots ($395, 212.593.0800). These lux Wellies were such a hit last spring that Choo is re-stocking stores with a new shipment later this month-make sure you to get yourself on that waitlist! Of course, if you prefer a little instant gratification, fret not, as Kenneth Cole's Midnight Rain Rubber Boots ($98) are dead ringers for Bilson's deluxe rainboots. (They'd also look swell paired with Juicy Couture's Bow-Shoulder Trench Coat ($190), we think!). Just add a studded satchel like Bilson's 3.1 Phillip Lim's Edie Bow Purse with Gold Studs ($755, 310.358.1988) such as Steve Madden's Pur-Sueded Flap Cross-Body Bag ($99), and you'll be fully equipped to fight the elements in style!
One of the reasons our readers respond so strongly to Olivia Palermo's outfits is because she deftly mixes high-end pieces (hello, Brian Atwood over-the-knee boots) with more high-street fare (Zara, H&M, and Uniqlo are all closet staples!) and today's ensemble is no exception. Seen here at the GQ-hosted Gentleman's Ball benefit, her Daryl K Stretch Lamb Leather Leggings ($1200, 212.529.8790) and Hermès Medor Clutch ($3800, 212.785.3030) are obsession and investment worthy. However, she tempers her fancy selections with more down-to-earth picks, like Topshop's Knitted Stripe Jacket ($80) and Amber Crepe Sole Platform Boots ($170). And while her satin Pick Me vest and LnA Crew Neck Tee ($60) add a touch of coverage and texture, we think that Forever 21's Wool Vest ($25) and Avenue Montaigne's Faux Leather Pants ($250) are the perfect pieces to steal the spotlight without breaking the bank!
Sienna Miller has been showing up all over New York City in exceptional ensembles (she's in town starring in After Miss Julie on Broadway), and our readers have certainly noticed! Her oft-asked-after Kate Moss for Topshop Faux Fox Jacket ($170) may give our audience a warm and fuzzy feeling, but we also quite like the way Miller kept the rest of her outfit low-key to balance the statement of the coat. Though her Rag and Bone Leather Leggings ($985, 212.727.2990) and Newbury Boots ($495) are chic to be sure, we can also suggest 6126's Manhattan Leggings ($98) and Steve Madden's Trott Booties ($130). Just pick up a chain strapped purse like Miller's Miu Miu's Nappa Leather Bag with Gold Studs ($1595, 888.977.1900) or Topshop's Ring Side Suede Bag ($125) and you'll be good to go!
