Minka Kelly In J Brand & Dolce & Gabbana – Marquee At The Star Opening

Minka Kelly hit the red carpet for the opening of Marquee at The Star in Sydney, Australia earlier today.

The brunette actress wore a black J Brand ‘Baez’ leather top with Dolce & Gabbana garden-print pants with tulips, roses and butterflies.

She opted for accessories as colourful as her pants by adding cobalt blue peep-toes and a yellow Jimmy Choo clutch.

Neutral makeup and wavy locks completed her look.

The only thing I’m not sure about is the leather top. It seems an odd choice within a mix of summery pieces.

What do you think?

You can buy Minka Kelly’s J Brand ‘Baez’ leather top from Net-A-Porter.com.

    Yes the black leather top is too heavy for the rest of the look. I wish the top even if leather was a summery color

    I see where she was going with the leather jacket but somehow it’s not translating with the blue shoes and print pants.

    Agreed FC. The black seems heavy and jarring, but I love the silhouette.

    The bottom is perfect but a black leather top, really… ?

    I kinda like the mix of tough and girlie.

      Yeah, me too. And I just love her hair here, it looks naturally gorgeous.

    I agree with you FC. Love the shoes though

  7. Ancika March 30, 2012 at 19:26 #

    I absolutely agree! This top is a no no.

    I absolutely love this look, and i think the leather top has taken it up a few notches, not down.

    I’d like it better if the top were sleeveless, and white or a bright color. But I love the pants.

    I love this look, the leather would work better if it were a different color, or like Laura said, sleeveless.

    A cream colored top made of light fabric would have been perfect.

  12. Valeria March 31, 2012 at 06:14 #

    perfect for me – apart from yellow clutch

  13. Jill March 31, 2012 at 07:10 #

    I love the leather top. For me this works head to toe. The top brings in the tough vibe; otherwise, the look would be too summery and flowery

    Love the look

    Don’t love it at all–the leather jacket’s shape is a bit off and it totally clashes with the pants (which I’m not a fan of either). The shoes and the clutch don’t work together imo.

    Hate to say it, but I don’t like the fit of the pant. Not the most flattering look.

  17. Zmia April 2, 2012 at 18:03 #

    great combination, not really good fit but i love it

  18. Stefanie Dubois April 9, 2012 at 12:01 #

    I absolutely love this look and would wear it myself!
    The mix of the floral pants with the leather top is amazing.
