Welcome to the bi-monthly findings of What Was She Wearing: Answers! Today’s story gives you the inside scoop on Rihanna’s accessories and brings you the latest information about Lauren Conrad’s design debut.
Recently spotted shopping in London, Rihanna looked quite glamorous thanks to her stellar accessories. We did a little background check on the singer’s shades and figured out that they’re Louis Vuitton’s Millionaire sunglasses. The product of a LV/Pharrell Williams collaboration a few years ago, the Millionaires were so popular they were re-launched last month. While the expensive ($1050), collectible frames quickly sold out, a few are still available on eBay. ($400-$1375, eBay.com). Rihanna’s gold necklace is a custom-made piece from Jason’s Jewelry, but the Double Rope Chain is a similar style. ($112, jasonsjewelry.com) For the exact piece, contact Jason directly.
Summer may yield a blur of bland outfit choices from our favorite celebs but leave it to Lily Allen to spice things up. Readers wanted to know about the dress she wore for a recent performance at the V Festival at Weston Park in Staffordshire. The two-tone bubble-hem dress is from the McQ – Alexander McQueen collection and comes complete with pocket details. ($429, shopbop.com ) We think this darling little number would look swell paired with opaque tights and some sporty Oakley sunglasses for fall.
Due to the high-volume of emails requesting information about LC’s wardrobe choices, it is evident that she’s got quite a few WWWD fans. Readers wanted to know what The Hills star wore to the Teen Choice Awards—we have those answers and more. Starting from the ground up, Conrad wore Jimmy Choo’s Smooth Metallic sandals in gold. ($490, net-a-porter.com) The designer of her teal, strapless dress was none other than Conrad herself! Unfortunately, this particular dress will not be available to the public for purchase but let the bubble-hemmed frock serve as a sneak preview of the new Lauren Conrad Collection. Slated for a September launch, the initial 10-piece line of dresses, tops, and rompers will wholesale from $22-$100. The LCC will be available at Fred Segal, Intermix, Nordstrom, Madison, Bloomingdales, and online at shoplaurenconrad.com.
Jessica Simpson is true to her blues. Last weekend, on a night out with her friends, the singer/actress/whatever demonstrated her hue-preferences by pairing jeans with bright blue accessories. Per your requests, Simpson is wearing William Rast jeans (style: Savoy Trouser, rinse: Evening Wash) with unique, hip pocket stitching and a flattering, low-rise fit. ($242, thedenimloft.com) Making her otherwise plain outfit pop, Simpson carried an electric blue snakeskin clutch from New York-based handbag designer, Sang A. The Jade Clutch is hand-stitched from dyed python skins and has a vintage gold clasp. ($1,650, luxcouture.com) She’s wearing blue shoes from her own line, try the Jessica Simpson Berg heels in New Royal to get the look. ($82.95, zappos.com)
