The Resort 2014 season is soon upon us, and I’ve been excited to bring many of the looks to this blog, as I found it to be one of the strongest seasons in a while. There were so many gorgeous collections, Chanel being at the very top of my list.
When browsing looks from the Museum of Modern Art Film Benefit earlier this week, I was gleefully surprised to see Jessica Biel sporting a hot look straight off the Chanel runway, right down to the eyeliner. The evening was honoring actress Tilda Swinton, and was hosted by Chanel’s Karl Lagerfeld…so it was an appropriate time to bring out your very best Chanel! Yes, it took me some time to warm up to Jessica Biel as a fashionista, but she seems to finally have found her foothold and makes some really smart choices. She looked positively radiant at the Film Benefit, with sleek hair, minimal yet aptly bronzed skin, and this gorgeous gladiator-esque dress.
Wisely she skipped accessories, aside from a pretty amazing clutch, in favor of showcasing the gorgeous neckline, dripping in gold. This dress is the perfect marriage of classic and modern, bringing texture to the party for just the right amount of fun.
This dress is a variation of the dress worn on the runway. It maintains the classic white ivory and cut, while introducing a twist on the shoulder decoration.
Yes, the look is softened on Jessica. Yes, I do wish she actually just went there as it would be so exciting to see her go that far. But, I respect her decision to make it a more accessible look while still honoring that killer eye.
I have to hand it to her, I think Jessica Biel upstaged the woman of the night, Tilda Swinton. Swinton also wore Chanel, but in favor of a pant suit.
What do you think of Jessica’s attempt at bringing the runway to life? Pretty great, right?
Stay tuned for lots more Resort 2014 to come, because I have lot more coverage up my sleeve 🙂
