While one might imagine that polished ladylike and effortlessly cool aesthetics exist on opposite ends of the sartorial spectrum and never the two shall meet, style icons like Sarah Jessica Parker and Emma Watson proved that a look can be at once sophisticated and swathed with an enviable nonchalance.
The ever-revered Sex and the Cityicon stepped out in a sleek and slouchy vintage Lanvin dress at the 2016 Guild Hall Of East Hampton Academy Awards in New York. She paired the look with a crisp oversized blazer and metallic SJP Collection booties, plus her trademark tousled waves.
Over in London, Rita Ora was the perfect brunch date in a pastel-blue Vionnet skirt and cape ensemble. The British pop singer added her own playful edge with metallic heels for The Prince's Trust Celebrate Success 2016 Awards.
And as the style set made their way to Paris for the final leg of shows in the Fall 2016 fashion season, A-list front-row guests stepped out in their fashionable best for the occasion. Fresh off her Oscar win, The Danish Girl star Alicia Vikander donned a totally preppy Louis Vuitton coat to the French house's fall show. As a face of the label, Alicia was true to Louis throughout awards season, including the custom yellow gown she wore when picking up her first Academy Award. Earlier in the week, Jessica Alba made a strong statement in polished Dior for their highly anticipated runway show.
