As a small tribute to Thanksgiving, we'll kick off this edition of WWSW: Answers! by stating just how grateful we are to the fashion industry and the well-dressed crop of celebs (you know who you are) who keep this story going. We also want to thank you, dear readers, for constantly filling our inboxes with outfit requests. Hopefully, you will enjoy the variety of ensembles shown above and will find a few items to add to your holiday wish lists!
It is difficult to recall how we spent our Monday nights before Josh Schwartz graced us with Gossip Girl. Our shameless addiction runs so deep that, in addition to our dogged dedication to the show and its characters, we keep close tabs on the personal style of the show's actors, too. This way we can appease the zillions of GG-related inquiries we receive. Recently, you wanted to know what everyone's favorite Queen B, Leighton Meester, wore to Lucky Magazine's Lucky Shops Event. Meester paid mind to fall's florals in a Marc Jacobs Silk Dress ($3200, 212.343.0553), while accessorizing with a Marc Jacobs Rana Pouch ($795) and Pour La Victoire Tia Pumps ($320, 212.473.9200). You can get a similar, less expensive version of the look with Adam's One Shoulder Tiered Party Dress ($525), ASOS' Satin Corsage Bag ($23), and Boutique 9's Vivacity Heels ($155).
On any given day, you can undoubtedly find an Olsen (or two) dressed to perfection. For this story, we'll hone in on Ashley and the flawless attire she wore on November 20th to the Mango Flagship Store relaunch in New York City. Olsen really proved that less can be more in a gorgeous, drapey black dress ($139, 212.826.2585) by Mango and a pair of iconic Yves Saint Laurent Tribute Two Platform Pumps ($795). For a budget-friendly take on this exquisite getup, try Ever's Gobi Shift Mini Dress ($58) and Aldo's Voetmann Pumps ($100).
We realize that this marks the second WWSW in a row that we're featuring Nicole Richie, but can you blame us? The fashion powerhouse is exceptionally chic, plus our fabulous readers sent multiple questions in regards to the threads she showed off a few weeks ago at the DCMA Store in Los Angeles. It delights us to inform you that Richie was out and about in Jenni Kayne's Square Tunic ($495), JET's Dark Skinny Jeans* ($143), and Christian Louboutin's Simple 100 Pumps ($595). If you want to reconstruct Richie's look, consider Forever 21's Leopard Burnout Top ($14) and Charles by Charles David's Pomade Pumps. Also, don't forget to include a pair of round shades (we like Ray-Ban's Oversized Sunglasses, $139) and a fall-appropriate hat, like Urban Outfitters' Slouchy Ribbed Beanie ($28).
The effortlessly stunning, Joy Bryant, is always one to watch! As one of Rachel Zoe's star clients, her fiercely stylish ensembles never fail to enthrall us, like the look Bryant chose for a BCBG Max Azria Fundraiser in NYC. The stunning model-turned-actress showcased a stripped-down sex appeal in a BCBG Max Azria Silk Cotton Sweater Dress ($148), Express Cropped Leather Motorcycle Jacket ($298), Zac Posen Clutch (212.925.1263), and 8.15 August Fifteenth Military Boots ($350). Try your own version of Bryant's tough-and-lovely look with Ben Sherman's Knitted Haggerty Dress ($108), Vince's Cashmere Hat ($95) or American Apparel's Recycled Cotton Beanie ($16), and Nine West's Button Clutch ($60). Finish the outfit in American Apparel's Opaque Tights ($14) and French Connection's Lace Up Boots ($195).-Jessica Amento
