Welcome to another information-packed edition of What Was She Wearing: Answers! Today’s story was researched and written, as always, by WhoWhatWearDaily’s world-class interns: Allison, Jessica, and Cory.
Every once in a while there is an item that is so exceptional that it’s worthy of being the only component focused on in an ensemble. We hope you are paying close attention, readers, because today is one of those times. While we love Moss’s amazing style, especially the Oliver Peoples sunglasses, today it’s all about her Mulberry Mabel—one of the season’s most coveted and buzz-causing bags. You can find it in black, like Kate’s, or draw some attention and opt for one in red. ($1312, mulberry.com) Be warned though, with this purse in hand you’ll stir up envy wherever you go.
Seen here in Beverly Hills, Katie Holmes’ confident demeanor (you can almost hear the Mary Tyler Moore theme song playing) and smart fashion sense hooked your attention. We investigated your inquires and discovered that her burnt sienna leather jacket is by Costume National. If you’d prefer a less pricey piece with a similar shape, check out Andrew Marc’s Boho jacket. ($595, andrewmarc.com) Layer it over a black, long-sleeved cashmere tee, step into a black pair of J Brand’s 14 Inch Cigarette Jeans, and you’ll have accomplished the basic look. ($138, jcrew.com; $158, couturecandy.com ) As far as accessories go, Tiffany & Co make petite, sterling silver, cushion hoops like Katie’s and Marc Jacobs Square Shaped Sunglasses serve as the perfect substitute for the pair pictured above. ($175, tiffany.com; $280, saksfifthavenue.com) Genre’s Ebony bag in black leather closely resembles the one Katie’s carrying and is a great finishing touch for this outfit. ($220, genre.com.au)
We are pleased to present The CW’s new headlining Gossip Girl, Leighton Meester, as she makes her WhoWhatWearDaily.com debut. Meester’s widely talked about show just started last week, but it seems she’s already popular in the style department. Apparently the outfit Meester wore to the show’s premiere made our readers chatter, so we (as fans of both the show and actress) happily researched it for you. We learned that her shimmering frock is the Oxford Couture dress by designer Julie Haus and will be available for purchase in mid-October. ($440, urbanchiconline.com) Her sandals are Kenneth Cole’s Nite Life, a python embossed, suede and leather slingback that comes in black and gray. ($250, kennethcole.com)
As we’re in limbo between summer heat and cooler fall temperatures, our readers have been asking for information about Kate Bosworth’s lightweight, yet warm, outfit. Her Pale Gold Cashmere v-neck sweater is from GAP’s Holiday 2007 collection and will be available in late October ($98, gap.com). Can’t wait until then? Try J. Crew’s cashmere v-neck sweater in honey glaze ($138, jcrew.com). Kate’s also wearing skinny cigarette jeans by AG, available in magnesium wash. ($167, revolveclothing.com) The cut of her AG Jeans perfectly showcase her Chloe flats from the Spring 2007 collection, currently on sale at Ron Herman in Los Angeles (on sale for $270, 310.550.0910). We also like these Chloe flats from the Fall collection in the same beige hue ($495, saksfifthavenue.com). For a similar lightweight scarf to add a splash of color, try Urban Outfitters’ crinkled linen scarf in fire red ($28, urbanoutfitters.com). Last but not least, Miss Bosworth’s statement making item comes in the form of her Marc Jacobs Collection Little Edie bag, which comes in black, red, or bisque leather. ($1795, marcjacobs.com for a boutique nearest you). The West Hollywood store has one left exactly like Kate’s, or you may like this satchel version of the bag. ($2495, brownsfashion.com).
