An American in Paris..and a Parisian in America?
This week was certainly an exciting and busy week for the fashion world for 3 reasons: 1)Emma Watson's wardrobe choices so far for the photocall and London premiere of the final Harry Potter film, 2)Kate Middleton's flawless-as-usual fashion for her and Prince William's North American tour, and 3) the extravagant week-long event that is Paris Haute Couture. Since I'll be covering Emma's red carpet choices in the next week or so and I've already talked so much about Kate Middleton that it's gotten a bit old, I've decided to move on to Paris Haute Couture, or at least to the Hollywood A-lister who rocked it this week. When I first saw the picture of Anne Hathaway strolling casually around Paris in her dress and red shoes, I had a feeling she would rule the haute couture shows this week. She certainly didn't disappoint when she showed up to the Valentino show in a quirky black dress with sheer polka dot overlay, but the "Princess Diaries" star really looked like royalty when she arrived at a ball wearing vintage Valentino. Anne has had some fashion hits and misses over the years, but her true chamelon style really works, especially in the French capital of fashion. Meanwhile, Ashley Olsen brought a touch of Paris to New York wearing a crisp white button-up shirt, full mid-calf skirt, chic flat sandals, and statement-making Prada sunglasses from the Minimal Baroque collection. I love this look because normally she and twin sister Mary-Kate get a lot of flak for dressing either too grungy or too much like old ladies, but here she gets it totally right. I actually noticed a lot of great outfits from Ashley but this one definitely has a touch of Paris or at least the Upper East Side, and I have a feeling Audrey Hepburn would have loved to wear Ashley's outfit. If you ask me, it doesn't get much more iconic than this image of Ashley in this 1950s-esque style walking her dog in Tribeca. It seems like no matter what goes on in the fashion world, we'll always have Paris.
