Who ever said yellow was mellow? Kate Mara totally popped on the red carpet this week in London at the premiere for The House of Cards, and I’m rethinking my feelings for the bright color.
You’re either a yellow person or not — there’s really no in between. But after seeing the pretty shade that Kate sported with this high-low dress, I kinda feel like I need to reconsider my aversion to yellow. The high-low hemline is so on trend right now, and the color works quite well with Kate’s complexion. Something else I’m crushing on? That gorgeous collar necklace.
The final verdict? I love that Kate pulled her hair back with such a statement-making dress, and kept to a simple color code. The accents of purple complement the bright yellow hue and don’t take away from the beautiful hemline.
Jessica Alba has blossomed into quite the fashionista over the past few years! And the actress impressed me this week with the super cute velvet coat she rocked at Paris Fashion Week.
Say what you want about velvet — I know, I know, some of you hate it! — but I love the regal material. On a coat, it can be either tacky or oh so chic, and luckily Jessica achieved the latter here. I’m a huge fan of a statement coat. Seriously, it almost doesn’t even matter what you wear underneath! — and Jessica rocked this look from head to toe, keeping things nearly monochromatic in varying dark shades.
The final verdict? Is Jessica French? ‘Cuz she sure does that have je ne sais quoi. The bold pop of red lips, the tied back hair, the dark color scheme: It’s all tres chic to me.
