There’s a reason stars like to show their stripes (literally!) on the red carpet. Not only are linear patterns a bold, notice-me choice but these geometric motifs can also reflect each celebrity's eclectic taste. Spotted on celebs like Janelle Monae and Sarah Jessica Parker this week, they’re a timeless statement worn head-to-toe or as a chic nautical accessory, making this all-American look a staple in every closet.
Janelle Monae took the mod-chic approach donning a sexy black-and-white striped Marc Jacobs mink coat draped over a mini dress in a matching pattern. The '60s-inspired colour palette and mix of prints made for a flawless sartorial optical illusion.
From stark to sweet, Felicity Jones played the girl-next-door in a pretty, pale-blue Erdem dress. The scaloped hemline and floral embroidery lent just the right amount of sweetness to this youthful look.
Leave it to Sarah Jessica Parker to make a capital-F fashion statement out of a classic print. The Sex and the City star donned a custom burgundy Caroline Constas dress striped with – what else – glitter! The off-the-shoulder detail, dotted black tights and hot-pink sandals only added to its playful burlesque vibe.
Throughout the week, stars proudly kept their stripes on display, including Zoe Saldana (in Monse), Rita Ora (in Adidas), Veronika Heilbrunner (in J.W. Anderson) and Octavia Spencer (in St. John). Bonus points go out to Michelle Monaghan for bearing her stripes in bold, colour-blocked sequins courtesy of Blumarine. It’s a starry look we can all aspire to!
