The Look: High Low Jumpsuit

I loved a lot of this year’s Golden Globes looks. But one in particular after-party look called my attention: this laid-back, high low take on the jumpsuit worn by 47 years young Sandra Oh. So unpretentiously chic, comfortable and fun. And very much Sandra Oh’s vibe. So much that she is owning it. And by the way, owning a look is one of my top 11 mantraments to be a well-dressed woman. More on that later, in a post.

But going back to Sandra Oh’s look… this Goop’s G. Label Elgin Tuxedo Jumpsuit could have gone either the high fashion road being paired with diamond jewelry and a high heeled sandals or the low one with a sneaker or even a flat sandal and no jewelry at all (or a casual, simple necklace). But instead it mixed both sides with a diamond necklace nothing shy and a fabulous leather sneaker by Alexandre Birman. And yes, the sneaker could have been black but then again, the contrast that the white with a dash of black sneaker add would have been lost.

Lastly, her hair is absolutely great too. Wavy, sexy and nothing uptight and super done. Very much in sync with the whole high low vibe. So her fresh makeup.

Kudos to her stylist, Elizabeth Saltzman, who nailed it, head to toe.

And if you want to put together a look like Sandra’s keeping the high low vibe, you could add some costume jewelry, like a bold ring or a not so shy necklace, silver or golden, no diamonds required. A converse sneaker could dress down a high vibe jumpsuit. Or a ballerina flat or a simple flat, if sneaker is not for you. Or a espadrille. A clean ankle boot would dress up a little more this look.

Guessing Game: J. Mendel’s 5 Possible Red Carpet Looks

 And I keep on picking dresses from the Pre Fall 2019 collections to possibly feature in some upcoming Red Carpet event. This time is with J. Mendel’s looks. Here are my guesses for each look:

This first one I confess that I would not know how would wear, but it sure deserves a go on the Red Carpet. Maybe Sandra Oh? The black one I would love to see in Jennifer Lawrence’s body or Kristen Bell’s.
This black one would look lovely on Meryl Streep. Or Helen Mirren. The first long sleeved one I would bet on Rosamund Pike or Pryanka Chopra. The last one Rooney Mara or Amber Heard?

And how about you? Any guesses?

As a Personal Stylist if there is one thing that I love to do when I see the runway photos is to guess which of those looks will make to the upcoming Red Carpet Season. And checking the Reem Acra Pre-Fall 2019 collection, those 5 looks made my list. 

Who would wear each? Well, the first one, in soft blue, Emily Blunt or perhaps Amy Adams. The second I would guess Constance Wu.  The third, Rachel Brosnahan, minus the neck bow. The blue one I would say Tilda Swinton or Meryl Streep. The last one with the long sleeves, maybe Nicole Kidman? 

And how about you? Who do you think would wear those gowns?
