Fashion Crush: Kerry Washington

Kerry Washington nailed it on every stop of her Django Unchained press tour. She continued to take risks into award season, and her adventurousness  paid off, landing her at the top of best-dressed lists week after week (she was one of my favorites at the Golden Globes; if you missed that post, you can read my full recap here).

While Washington knows how to rock bright colors and pushes the envelope with vibrant patterns, she always looks stunning in white. Below are a few of my favorite KW looks from the past year, and not surprisingly, many of them come in variations of my choice neutral hue.

Final Thoughts: New York Fashion Week

So I know I am behind. London Fashion week is in full swing—only a few days remain before the glitterati move on to their Milan hotel penthouses to do the exact same thing they have done for the previous two weeks, this time only with a different backdrop. And yet here I am, giving my out-dated opinions on the second half of New York Fashion Week. But how can I not? So much amazingness went on on those runways that it would be cruel to not give those designers their deserved attention. I also learned that fur, velvet, and leather are the materials that will define fall fashion. So while other bloggers may be focused on the [stunning] collections from Peter Pilotto, Burberry Prorsum, and Erdem, I am hitting rewind in order to share my favorite collections from days 5-8 of New York Fashion Week:

Marc Jacobs/ Zac Posen
