The Look For Less: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley
The Victoria's Secret bombshell may have bombed at the box office in Transformers: Dark of the Moon, but Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has been a media darling for months now for her fantastic red carpet style during the promotional tour. Now that the film has faded out of theaters, many assumed Huntington-Whiteley would similarly fade into obscurity; instead, she has garnered more fans than ever for her red-hot street style. This ensemble, from early August, is fresh, fun, and summery, but can easily be translated into Fall with a few simple tweaks here and there. No one seems to know who her white, silky top and mint-green skirt are by, but she accessorized with a pair of $225 Elizabeth and James sunglasses, a Chloé Paraty leather bag, $1,895, and nude Chloé braided ankle strap ballerina flats, $490. That totals $2,610, a figure totally appropriate for a 'Look for Less' post.
This is one of the toughest looks I've replicated. Mint green, while a huge trend for Fall, hasn't yet leaped onto from the runways and red carpets to the retail shops (trust, in about two months, it will... I've got a trend post all geared up and ready to go), but I managed to find a $20 similar skirt in a shimmery, burgundy color at Forever 21. The top was also difficult; white is easy enough, but the asymmetrical hemline and light fabric would be hard to duplicate. I settled for a $44 pretty White tank top cut short in the front and long in the back. This tank, $59, would also fit the bill. The accessories were much easier, as I was able to find near-replicas of each item.
