We're kicking off the week with another information-stuffed-would it be anything else?-installment of What Was She Wearing. We'll tell you how to achieve Nicole Richie's latest lovely look and where in the world Kate Bosworth got her super stylish frock-just read on!
The Hills are alive with the sound of questions! Okay, the joke may be lame but your requests for info were not, so let's answer those pressing outfit queries. Per your emails, we gathered the details about what Ms. Conrad wore to a birthday party at Boulevard 3 in Hollywood last month. She chose Twinkle's Picasso Close Call Dress ($414) for her night out, and paired it with BCBG heels and a Gucci clutch. Conrad's shoes are no longer available, but we'd like to suggest Ralph Lauren's Noella Sandal ($359) as a replacement. In lieu of Conrad's Gucci purse, try Banana Republic's Metallic Snake-Embossed Clutch ($89) or Pantera's Frame Leather Clutch ($325) for a similar look.
Spotted en route to driving school in Los Angeles last week, Nicole Richie inspired everyone with her thoughtful outfit. As per usual, we were glad to look into the details (what a tough job) of her look to get answers for our countless readers in need. Our findings show that she wore an Elizabeth and James Peacock Chiffon Dress ($374) accessorized with a Tom Ford fedora and Benjamin Eyewear's Kayne Sunglasses ($325). After scouring the web for similar hat options, we discovered our favorite is a black fedora ($270) by Kokin. Finally, Richie's boots are vintage Gucci, so we must refer you to our treasured eBay to search for your own pair.
With the amount of Rachel Bilson inquiries we receive, it's surprising that she hasn't become permanently integrated into the What Was She Wearing story altogether. (Her outfits would definitely allow for it.) Readers wanted to know all about the accessories Bilson wore few days ago while running doggy-related errands. She showed off an array of fantastic accessories: a bright yellow Dior Babe Shopping Tote ($2290), a pair of Chanel olive-green shades (call 800.550.0005 for details), and a simple black-and-white Ombre Cashmere scarf by Park Vogel ($112). If you're coveting a similarly bow-bedecked pair of pointy Miu Miu flats, try Sigerson Morrison's Ballet Flats with Butterfly Bow ($395) for that Bilson look.
Kate Bosworth caused a recent rash of envy thanks to the intricately crafted, beautiful Bally dress she wore while out and about in New York with her beau last week. Her dress is currently available in Bally stores and her Pointed Ballerina Flats ($550) by Burberry are in stock (both online and in stores) as well. Naturally, the Bally frock is a wee expensive, so we found great Diane von Furstenberg Kale Tunic Dress ($280) as an alternative. Pair it with Leopoldo Giordano's Woven Toe Flats ($425)or Steve Madden's Orina Flats ($69.95). -JESSICA AMENTO, additional reporting by Madison Robbins
