OUTFIT OF THE WEEK: BLUE JEAN BABY

by Jesse L. Brooks


 

 

"Blue Jean Baby...L.A. Lady...." No, we aren't listening to too much Elton John. We are simply inspired by his famous lyrics for our newest Outfit of The Week. Dressing up denim isn't always effortless, but when you have a piece this fabulous, it does make the process easy breezy. Alice + Olivia's 'Chloe' jacket is decorated with removable pins featuring sequined, beaded and embroidered appliqués of lipstick, flowers and birds. Cut from acid washed denim, it has a cropped silhouette and buttoned waist tabs. To complement our statement making cover up, we added a touch of elegance. Valentino's Fall '16 collection is inspired by ballet and modern dance - Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli cite the Ballets Russes, Martha Graham and Merce Cunningham as key influences. As seen on the Paris runway, this midi skirt is cut from two layers of wispy tulle that's pleated for movement and lined in stretch-silk for coverage. The grosgrain waistband ensures it stays in place, and adds a touch of whimsy to any outfit. Underneath our layers of delightful fashion lies a simple Wolford bodysuit. The smoothing stretch-jersey is designed for an entirely seamless silhouette under clothing, offering softly lustrous style. To accessorize and bring out those beautiful pops of color in our jacket, we went bold. For our bag, lipstick red was the perfect choice. Flawlessly crafted from buttery soft leather, this timeless structured piece is detailed with a polished brass padlock and key fob. Our shoes took the extra 'cha cha' route; You'll be sure to sparkle from head-to-toe in these dazzling Loubs. Encrusted with a sensational multicolored crystal gemstone detailing, these beauties are like jewelry for the feet. No outfit would be complete without a little makeup. A look this sassy calls for a winged eye. The Gucci Power Liquid Liner defines with a clean line of saturated black colour in just one swipe. Achieve a dramatic long lasting glossy finish through a combination of a high intensity black pigment and precision applicator. It's glam made easy! If you are a denim lover but also love looking and feeling like a star, then you are sure to be one coveted 'Blue Jean Baby' in this look.
