Just reading this entry and viewing these impeccably stylish photos of Carolyn Bessette Kennedy should tell you that you don’t need to keep up with trends or even go shopping for fall. The basics I assume will already be in your closet, and I love how CBK is comfortable with the familiar, the classic black coat and simple evening dresses. Still looking for ways to dress this coming fall and I can’t help but be swayed by the coolest lady ever. And I may have already posted some of these images before but you never get sick of perfection.
…Looking also for design inspiration, and I just want more of this style. Sometimes it is hard to design or come up with something else, because what is the point really? The classics are there, the boundaries set, and if you can tweak them in such a way that makes them modern great…But even a decade and a half later her look is still fresh.
CBK at Indochine.
Just when you thought she was some preppy from Connecticut (or wherever she is from)…she’s rocking Yohji Yamamoto. Baller, that’s right.
For fall I am definitely going to wear some simple baggy bootcut trousers and a black collared shirt, it almost reminds me of what waiters dress like in some restaurants, but I love the look below.
In her hand a minimal zip leather pouch (those Celine ones you’ve been seeing everywhere are the exact same, except the one CBK is wearing is by Comme Des Garcons like 13 years ago..).
Just love this.
I appreciate that with her access to designer clothing she does not dress like she’s going to meet Santa…For fall, this is just how I want to dress.
She isn’t wearing makeup, and it’s fine….if she is giving me an excuse to lose the brushes and powders then I will certainly indulge in some laziness for fall.
What makes me very sad is that even though I have never met her, I’m so curious about how she would dress today. How would her style have evolved…Life is so unfair. The best are always hidden, or they dissappear….And instead we just have an abundance of mediocrity.
