The sisters Geldof are constantly on our fashion radar, so we take pleasure in briefing our curious readers with the details of the outfit Peaches wore to the Dublin airport earlier this month. Geldof perfectly demonstrated one of our vintage doctrines by keeping her ensemble at a 50/50 ratio of new and retro garments. She exuded glamour through one-of-a-kind pieces from the past, including a plaid shirt dress, burnt orange velvet coat, and black leather tote. Geldof modernized her outfit with Topshop's Basic Slouch Beanie Hat ($16), some casually chic Pied a Terre Buckle Boots (020 7730 3757), and a pair of heart-shaped sunglasses from a street vendor on St. Mark's Place in New York. You can put together a like-minded getup with IRO's Plaid Dress ($158), Juicy Couture's ¾ Sleeve Coat ($448), Dolce Vita's Zip Bold Booties ($238), and Urban Outfitters' Sweet Heart Sunglasses ($16). For a bag like Geldof's, try ASOS' Studded Across Body Bag ($27) or Leather Pyramid Stud Bag ($118).
Based on the plethora of candid pictures that readers have been sending of Gossip Girl's impending cast member, Willa Holland, we suspect the newcomer is going to blend in seamlessly with the rest of the superbly dressed ensemble. Case in point: she recently filmed a scene in downtown Manhattan clothed in Natori's Sonia Chemise ($160), Joie's Amita Fitted Leather Hooded Jacket ($594), Christian Louboutin's Sigourney Heels ($1030), Rachel Leigh's Hippie Chic Necklace ($93), and a Lesa Wallace Patent Leather Ricky Bag($407). We are quite taken with her entire look, but you can always take some pressure off of your pocket books by substituting her pieces for a Victoria's Secret Leather Motorcycle Jacket ($209), Spiegel's Front-Pocket Tote ($59), and Nine West's Yung Heels ($118). Also, her lacy Hue tights are unavailable online, but try Urban Outfitters' Sparkle & Fade Tights ($14) as stylish replacements!
We never tire of the laid-back, cool outfits that Katie Holmes wears to rehearsals for All My Sons in Manhattan. Just last week, she arrived at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre in Simone by Katie Nehra's Anthony Blouse ($119, 323.848.8183), Current/Elliott's Skinny Slouch Jeans ($216), and a pair of high-polish black leather Tod's Lulu Booties ($625, 212.644.5945). If you're wanting to save some dough, but don't want to sacrifice the overall look of the outfit, try White House Black Market's Ankle Booties ($118) as fitting alternatives.
On another Gossip Girl-related note, we'd like to turn your attention to one much-discussed outfit that you spotted on Jenny Humphrey, aka Taylor Momsen. Seen here a few weeks ago shooting an upcoming scene, Momsen looked so cute that we nearly mistook her for Little Red Riding Hood. She conveyed the fall runway's plaid craze in D&G's Plaid Shirt Dress ($545), stayed warm in an Accessory Street Shawl ($70, 212.352.0856) from Loehman's, and completed her costume in Nine West's Cuzza Booties ($110). If you don't have a Loehman's in your city, try Diane Von Furstenberg's Hoxter Sweater Coat ($595) as an equally-snug piece of outerwear! You can also trade Momsen's dress for BDG's Fitted Buffalo Plaid Tunic ($58), or Forever 21's Gingham Buttoned Dress ($23).-Jessica Amento
