Leelee Sobieski In Jil Sander – Fashion Group International’s 28th Annual Night of Stars Gala

Leelee Sobieski attended Fashion Group International’s 28th annual Night of Stars which was held at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City yesterday evening.

The actress wore a Jil Sander Fall 2011 ensemble.

This Prussian blue cotton shirt paired with a chocolate skirt seems like an easy enough look to pull off, but I can count one other person who could do it justice and that is Tilda Swinton – of course.

You have to have a certain kind of attitude, a swag if you will, to make this look luxurious and for me she gets it right. She works it better than the model imo.

Leelee’s baby-blue eyes really pop against her navy shirt.

She wore her hair back into a simple bun and added soft pink lips to complete her minimalist look.

    I’d want Tilda to wear this, she’d rock it even harder.

    Spot on FC Tilda would be amazing in this too.
    This is very cool, she is exuding attitude and I love it. Minimalism works for Leelee

    Very nice, she’s rocking this look.

    Speechless. Well, not really, buy very nearly there. I gasped when I saw Leelee in this, so perfect does she look and so effortlessly does she carry it off. She. Owns. This. As much as I love Ms. Swinton, it is so nice to see Jil Sander on the red carpet on someone apart from Tilda. And even more rewarding when it looks as stunning as this. I don’t know how I’m going to decide this week, but I humbly nominate Leelee for BDOTW. She has really raised the bar for me in this look.

    I like Leelee’s style – very paired back and softly structural. This is perfect on her.

  6. Leo October 28, 2011 at 11:41 #

    She looks like Tilda’s daughter here. Nice try for doing something outside what you would expect with this look, so she gets extra points for it even if she does not pul it off that well.

    Tilda immediately came to mind, but I think she looks divine and I love these colors paired together.
    Nicely done!

    I think she is making this work. I like it.

    • maria October 28, 2011 at 15:08 #

      i agree. Great look on her body.

  9. AW October 28, 2011 at 14:32 #

    I don’t like. I don’t see fashion in it.

  10. Alina October 28, 2011 at 15:06 #

    Works for her. She has the right attitude.

  11. Gaber October 28, 2011 at 15:17 #

    Yeah, I seriously love this.
    A BDOTW-nod would be justified.

  12. Ginger October 28, 2011 at 15:32 #

    A challenging look to execute well, but she does so perfectly!

    • Rebecca Z October 28, 2011 at 15:59 #

      Why try? I just don’t like this stuff–it is not flattering in any way

      • Ginger October 28, 2011 at 16:44 #

        Well, that’s an interesting question. I don’t know that everyone chooses clothing just because it would be flattering, really: she may have chosen it because she likes the volume, the way it is unconventional, as a defiant challenge to the blandly pretty dresses that so many starlets wear, etc. Perhaps because she has an unusual loveliness she likes clothes that are also unusual. Jolie-laide, if you will.

        • Rebecca Z October 28, 2011 at 16:57 #

          All good points–and I respect your point of view. These shapeless looks just don’t appeal to my taste, though I do like some less conventional designers.

  13. Quinn October 28, 2011 at 17:23 #

    i agree FC, she definitely wears it better than the model

  14. karol October 28, 2011 at 17:49 #

    wow Leelee Sobieski looks so beautiful like if Tilda Swinton was sexy with breasts

  15. jemima knows October 28, 2011 at 18:13 #

    Sobieski, Leelee, is amazing. My favorite look was the tuxedo by her husband Adam Kimmel. He is the best meswear designer in the worls and he should make the womens clothes becasue that is all would i be wearingf.
    he is lucky man and his wife is great actress and onnly other than tilda can pull off jil sander. other actress have no elegance and seems no classic in face

  16. Mol October 28, 2011 at 21:11 #

    Perfection!

  17. Amber October 29, 2011 at 01:02 #

    Tilda would be the only one in my mind to do this ensemble justice. Leelee and the runway model both look like they are swimming in a large amount of ill-fitted fabric.

  18. pipsqueak October 29, 2011 at 17:08 #

    Perfection. I love any girl who has the stature and attitude to rock a Jil Sander look (a Raf Simons look precisely).
