Celebrities Love…Jumpsuits

As temperatures rise, celebrities are ditching basic sundresses for a more edgy and streamlined choice: jumpsuits.

Jumpsuits were all over the Spring 2012 runways, with designers like Derek Lam, Stella McCartney, Adam, Altuzarra and Diane von Furstenberg sending out an alternative silhouette option for warmer days.

Whether it’s sleeved or strapless, loose or cropped, the key to nailing this trend is all about proper tailoring.

Nicole Scherzinger opted to go nautical in Monte Carlo. Cameron Diaz balances out a long hemline with a perfect-fitting strapless bodice, wearing Stella McCartney at the ‘What To Expect When You’re Expecting’ UK premiere.

Cassie cinches her loose-fitting Salvatore Ferragamo Spring 2012 while stepping outside the Martinez Hotel in Cannes with a simple tie-belt, accentuating her waist and giving a more casual vibe to a wild print.

Over the past few weeks, we’ve seen the one-piece look pop up almost everywhere, from glamorous Cannes Film Festival ensembles, as seen on Eva Longoria wearing Elie Saab during a guest appearance on ‘Le Grand Journal’, to casual travelling gear at the airport, a la Diane Kruger, who arrived in Nice wearing a comfortable black number from Anthropologie.

Will you be trying out this new summer trend?

    It is a summer basic for me, i´ve always loved a good jumpsuit. But again, i am more for personal style then blindly following trends. Happy it´s in though, because there will be more amazing designs to buy!

    FC I am 5’8 but want to look 5’10 like you. Should I tailor the pants around my calves for a slimming effect and wear nude heels?

    Fashion help from a pro 🙂

    Height really helps to pull jumpsuits off. They can look unflattering (Cameron Diaz) or ducking amazing (see Krugelz and Nicole Kardashian lol).

      I would wear nude heels.

    I’m hoping this jumpsuit trend dies like it should have in the 70s.

    Not a fan of this trend but I kind of like the belted ASOS one. It looks almost ’40s-ish 😀

    I absolutely love this trend but it depends on how you style a jumpsuit and how it fits.

    I love the one Diane wore and the one Cameron wore is also great but the pants should’ve been tailored.

    From to ones you pictured FC, I like the one from Asos and the one from Miss Selfridge.

    I really like this trend.

    What do you think, Fashion Critic, can someone wear a jumpsuit (an elegant one, of course) at the prom?

    • Fashion Critic May 30, 2012 at 17:17 #

      I don’t see why not. is that your plan?

      I’d love to be brave enough to wear a jumpsuit to prom. Do it! You’ll be cool and different from everyone else 🙂
