We've got a wonderful range of wardrobe information in today's What Was She Wearing: Answers! We tracked down the sunglasses du jour of one of our favorite trendsetters (Nicole Richie) and got the goods about one of your favorite Gossip Girls, so read on for all these details and more!
Despite her recent semi-absentee status (we're not being rude, motherhood is important!) Nicole Richie is a cherished staple on our site. In the past week we've been inundated with questions about the new yummy mummy, specifically about her truly stellar pair of American Anglo heart-shaped shades ($255). If you are prone to losing sunglasses or not quite ready to make a hefty investment, we recommend the red Heart Sunglasses ($10) available from Fred Flare or Urban Outfitter's Sweet Heart Sunglasses ($14).
Supermodel May Andersen makes her WhoWhatWearDaily.com debut in a double-take-inducing beautiful blue dress. Andersen wore a boldly azure Puffed Layer Dress by Preen ($1122) to the New York premiere screening of Stop-Loss at the Gramercy Park Hotel last week. The frock has a flattering fun shape and easily could be dressed up or down for various occasions. The exact dress is available at Curve in LA (310.360.8008) but Shopbop also offers some great alternatives that we love. Try the Bop Basics Racer Back Dress ($120) or Helmut Lang's Scoop Neck Sleeveless Dress ($345) for this look. To further emulate May's style, finish the outfit with Scorah Pattullo's Sienna Bootie ($755).
It seems that we have many readers who are quite fond of Ashlee Simpson's style and have keenly noticed the singer has taken on a lower profile lifestyle. This conclusion came to us when Simpson recently began to make the rounds to promote her new album and your questions about her outfits came crashing in! The queries were primarily curious about the outfit Simpson wore to Café Med in West Hollywood last week. You wanted to know about everything from her classic Rayban Wayfarers ($139.95) to her YSL Tribute Sandals in dark blue ($780). As for everything in between, Simpson is also wearing a double-stranded pearl Chanel necklace (price upon request) over Charlotte Ronson's Midnight Striped Gem Racer Tank ($132). She paired these items with D&G's Allyson Bowling Bag ($990) and some J Brand Ankle Skinny Stretch Jeans jeans ($159). You can achieve Ashlee's look for less with Urban Outfitter's Blackout Sunglasses ($14), Forever 21's Faux Pearl Necklace ($7.80), and Steve Madden's Pascha T-strap Sandals ($89.95).
Thanks to her appearance at the 25th Annual William S. Paley TV festival in Hollywood this past weekend, Leighton Meester proved she's got a commendable talent for picking cute dresses. Her frock of choice was the bright yellow Josephina dress from Julie Haus's Spring 08 collection ($398). Although it isn't available online, you can pick one up from your nearest Saks Fifth Avenue or shop the plethora of other pretty frocks Julie has to offer on her site. Meester finished off her red carpet look with Felix Rey's Marissa Clutch in white ($145 on sale). -JESSICA AMENTO, additional reporting by Lily Huber
