Ashley Madekwe In Topshop – BAFTA Los Angeles and Sir Philip Green Celebrate The British New Wave at Topshop

Ashley Madekwe In Topshop - BAFTA Los Angeles and Sir Philip Green Celebrate the British New Wave at Topshop Topman at The Grove

On Tuesday, Ashley Madekwe turned out for the BAFTA Los Angeles and Sir Philip Green Celebrate the British New Wave event, hosted at Topshop Topman at The Grove in Los Angeles, California.

Naturally, the ‘Revenge’ actress pledged her allegiance to Topshop with this exploded-check dungaree jumpsuit, worn with simple black sandals and a black, copper-accented clutch.

And, in so doing, she further extended my love of the jumpsuit—even one inspired by overalls.

While not all starlets could carry off this mannish moment nor the peg-pant silhouette, Ashley did so with stylish aplomb.

Loose waves and nude makeup softened the masculine edge, and a gold charm necklace added a glint of shine.

    I totally share the ever growing love for jumpsuits.

    This probably is my favorite look of hers.

    There is no way that this jumpsuit designed like overalls should work. But I love it. I am really impressed with her style chops.

    Stunning from head to toe.

    I think the jumpsuit makes her appear bigger than what she is. Not liking it.

    I believe there is a maximum age for jumpsuits.That said, the top age is eleven years old.

    I’m no fan of jumpsuits but Ashley sells me on this look head to toe.
    The more I see her, the more she impresses me.

    I love this.

    I find the colour of the clutch a bit too harsh, other than that: awww.

    This shouldn’t work, yet somehow Ashley pulls this off easily.

    • EmmaWoodhouse May 5, 2013 at 14:11 #

      +1 I hate the concept but she actually looks great!
