When attempting to construct new outfits from your already established personal wardrobe, it's always helpful to garner ideas from celebrities with inspirational, relatable style. The greatest purpose for our What Was She Wearing story is to help you do just that! Today we will cover inquiries ranging from the chic light wash jeans Kate Bosworth wore to a screening in London to the bright pink booties Lindsay Lohan chose for the Saks Fifth Avenue Key to the Cure Party in New York City. Hopefully, you'll see something that sparks a few fashion ideas of your own!
We generally receive queries regarding celebrity street style, but every now and then a question comes through concerning a fabulous red carpet outfit, like the ensemble Mandy Moore wore to the Vanity Fair Photograph Exhibit in Los Angeles last week. Moore stunned in a black one-shouldered Band Dress ($2342, 646.654.0156) from Preen's Spring 09 Collection, Sang A's Flash Platinum Python Clutch ($1500), and Christian Louboutin's Delic Pumps ($660). You can emulate her effortless formal look with Alice + Olivia's One Strap Bandaid Frock ($484) or Bebe's Mesh Inset Dress ($119), Guess by Marciano's Drifter Pumps ($98), and an Abas Emma Python Valet Clutch ($226). On a sidenote, the latter also happens to be one of Rachel Zoe's picks on Piperlime!
We are so addicted to style stalking on our readers' behalf, that we even track starlets and models when they are overseas. For instance, we can tell you exactly what Kate Bosworth wore to the screening of "The Girl in the Park" when she visited London earlier this month. Bosworth showcased her keen ability to mix designers by sporting Dior's Homme Two Button Embroidered Jacket ($2000, 310.247.8003), a limited edition D&G Painted Top from S/S 08, Sass and Bide for Topshop Strays Jeans ($150), and Chloe's Studded Ankle Boots ($1245) with buckles. Create a similar ensemble for yourself with Express' Tuxedo Jacket ($148), Torn's Burn Out Color Splatters T-Shirt ($36), and Miz Mooz's Andrea Buckle Bootie ($170).
Erin Wasson is always one of our favorite ladies to turn to for fashion motivation, so it thrills us to report any and all questions about her attire! Recently, Wasson made an appearance at the re-opening of the Burberry store in Beverly Hills dressed in a very polished punk outfit. Wasson wore (unsurprisingly): a vintage Burberry blazer, boots, and clutch, as well as Topshop's Black Ripped Jeans ($90), and Kain's Pocket Tank ($80). Our favorite budget-friendly substitutes for Wasson's vintage pieces are Rag & Bone's Nancy Blazer ($473) or Martin + Osa's One-Button Flannel Jacket ($190), Nine West's Nistka Lace Up Boots ($150) or Michael Kors' Patent Mogul Buckle Granny Booties ($395), and Xhilaration's Bangle Foldover Clutch ($15).
Lindsay Lohan is looking better than ever these days, so we've been just as curious as our readers to uncover the details for her cute outfits. Specificaly, we've gathered a lot of emails about the ensemble she wore to the Saks Fifth Avenue Key to the Cure Party in New York City a few weeks ago. Lohan layered a Matthew Williamson Multi Frill Top ($525) over Olivia Leggings ($100) from her fledging line, 6126, and finished the look off with striking Christian Louboutin C'est Moi Boots ($825). Tackle your own budget-friendly take on her look with Topshop's Lace Insert Pintuck Blouse ($70), American Apparel's Rib Nylon Spandex ($36), and Cesare Paciotti's Pink Booties ($674). Steve Madden's Loletta Purple Suede Booties ($150) are a great eye-catching alternative, too! -Jessica Amento, additional reporting by Claudia Codron, Roxanna Khamneipur, and Jenny May.
