This week in fashion: Rihanna, Naomie Harris, Kerry Washington and more strut star style
While we are still reeling from the stunning appearance of first lady Michelle Obama re-wearing a Michael Kors dress for President Obama’s election night victory speech, there were many other style moments of note this week.
The biggest blip on the map was of course the Victoria’s Secret fashion show, which taped this week. The glorious lingerie extravaganza featured a performance by Rihanna that included an outfit change. Plus, black models Jourdan Dunn, Joan Smalls and Jasmine Tookes “brought the fever” to the sexy catwalk presentation, according to Clutch Magazine.
Speaking of Rihanna, the often-snapped star was also captured in a casual look on the streets of NYC — in a jacket with anything but a low-key price. Her Acne “Velocite” Burgundy Shearling Jacket seen in the photo gallery above goes for a whopping $2,300. Take a look and tell us, if you think it’s worth the splurge.
This was also a big week for movie premieres and promotions — which of course means fabulous red carpet fashions. Halle Berry, Kerry Washington, and Naomie Harris, the latest Bond girl, all made appearances for media-related activities, bringing their special flair for style.
And of course, in addition to the lovely look Michelle Obama wore on election night, her daughters Sasha and Malia also made a splash in their simple, full shirts. Most style watchers have swooned over their simple yet girly presentation — but there has been a new observation about their outfits that evening.
“The super sleuths over at Lucky figured out that Sasha Obama’s green skirt, designed by the fabulous Chris Benz, was actually a hand-me-down from Malia!,” The Huffington Post reports. “The First Daughters: they’re just like us!”
Other sartorial moments of the week that are not to be missed include Rihanna (AGAIN) revealing her sexy V magazine photo shoot with Kate Moss, plus Halle Berry working an afro for the cover of Interview magazine Germany.
And, while not necessarily looking very fashionable, Meagan Good was caught on camera with long locks on the set of her new television series, Infamous, showing that her change from short to long hair since her recent wedding is likely permanent.
