Rachael Harris In Jil Sander – 2012 Independent Spirit Awards

Rachael Harris joined in the fun at the red carpet at the 2012 Independent Spirit Awards, held on Saturday evening in Santa Monica, California.

She opted to wear a navy Jil Sander dress which she accented with a YSL belt.

The actress accessorized with Piaget jewels, an Alexandra Knight clutch and YSL shoes.

Whilst this look isn’t as formal as Jessica Chastain’s look, it still feels a tad formal for this event.

Jil Sander Navy Fall 2012

My first Fall 2012 presentation this season was Jil Sander Navy.

When we think of the mainline collection, we think of Tilda Swinton, Karen Elson and Erin O’Connor, but Jil Sander Navy is aimed at a totally different woman.

The ‘Sporty Meets Couture’ collection, which evokes 60s minimalism, mostly consisted of cute above-the-knee shirt dresses with full skirts and embellished collars.

Sporty sweaters were paired with jacquard cropped pants or printed skirts and puffer jackets with A-line skirts.

The outerwear was presented in mostly dark navy or black. The one with the fur collar stood out the most.

The backpacks and satchels had a ‘back to school’ feel to them, whilst the elegant clutches and purses would make for the perfect accessory on a night out.

Other accessories included leather gloves, platform shoes, leather flats and headbands in satin, leather and velvet.

The collection will be available from July and will range in price from approx $700 to $900.

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Hailee Steinfeld, Chloe Moretz, Shailene Woodley, Celine Buckens, Ginnifer Goodwin, Elle Fanning and Michelle Williams.Read More…

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.

Tilda Swinton In Jil Sander – ‘I Am Love’ Screening & Jil Sander Spring 2012 Tokyo Presentation

In Tilda Swinton’s new movie, ‘I Am Love’ she wears a wardrobe of Jil Sander looks which were created by Raf Simons for the British actress.

The movie was released in Japan this week, so to celebrate the occasion Jil Sander held an exclusive fashion show and screening event in Tokyo yesterday.

Tilda gives us our first look at the Jil Sander Spring 2012 collection on the red carpet.

She wore a navy blue mid-calf length dress with Jil Sander light grey sling-backs and a black clutch.

This dress refines femininity with a modern simplicity, so don’t be surprised that Tilda’s version doesn’t have the Erickson Beamon brooches.

Hailee Steinfeld In Chanel, Jil Sander & J Brand – Variety’s 5th Annual Power Of Youth Event

Hailee Steinfeld also attended Variety’s 5th Annual Power Of Youth Event which was held at Paramount Studios in Hollywood, California on Saturday.

She looked adorable wearing a Chanel cropped black and red jacket over a white Jil Sander top.

Her J Brand shorts were paired with knee-length socks to keep the look more youthful and less Britney.

A fun pork pie hat and Chanel steel toe-cap brogues completed her look.

Since she’s no longer the face of Miu Miu, she seems to be dressing more like a teenager again.

Jil Sander Spring 2012

Jil Sander’s Spring 2012 was one of my favourite presentations this fashion week.

The 50s-inspired collection started off with several clean, crisp white knee-length dresses paired with white lace-up boots.

After the third or fourth dress we started to believe this was going to be an all-white purity collection before models took to the runway wearing paisley and gingham prints, plus we saw a selection of black, green and yellow looks.

This minimal, modern collection presented lean pant suits, layered separates, shift dresses, shorts paired with tailored blazers, graphic knit sweaters paired with full white skirts, and short-sleeve shirts paired with fluid organza skirts.

Shirt-dress-inspired gowns, which could work as wedding gowns, closed the show.

Key accessories included veiled beanie hats, bags and clutches, plus chunky heel pumps in a range of colours and patent ankle boots.

Erickson Beamon teamed up with designer Raf Simons to create the crystal earrings. They also created jewelled brooches which were added to dresses to provide an elegant finishing touch.

Front Row: Anna Dello Russo and all the top editors

Favourites: Paisley print top with navy skirt and graphic knit top with gingham pants

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Tilda Swinton, Cate Blanchett, Diane Lane, Karen Elson, Erin O’Connor

Front Row @ Mulberry Spring 2012

Kristen Stewart and Kate Moss were front row at the 10am Mulberry show which I attended yesterday. It was so cute to see the young star and supermodel deep in conversation like they were old friends.

Kristen Stewart: The actress is currently in the UK shooting a new movie. She opted to wear a summery Mulberry ‘Neely’ Resort 2012 striped dress with a striped belt. I love the dress, but I wish she’d worn the same heels as the model instead of these midnight blue Mulberry ‘Braided’ booties. I get why she picked these boots as they work with her style.

Kate Moss: The super breezed in wearing a double denim Mulberry Resort 2012 look. The jury is still out on whether I like double denim, but both Kate and Charlize Theron know how to rock it. I found Kate to be very charming.

Olivia Palermo: The front row London Fashion Week regular also wore a look from the Mulberry Resort 2012 collection. Her fuchsia pink metallic top was paired with Hudson Nico skinny jeans, Mulberry bow front pumps and a Mulberry ‘Harriet’ clutch from the Resort 2012 collection.

Anna Dello Russo: The Street Style photographers favourite wore a floral Jil Sander Fall 2011 dress to which she added an orange belt. She also added black pointy ankle boots, but she’s forgiven as she carried a gorgeous yellow Bottega Veneta clutch plus a Gucci snake-skin tote.

Olivia is my favourite here.
