Camilla Belle stopped us in our tracks in this Salvatore Ferragamo ensemble at the designer’s Old Bond Street Boutique launch. The beauty’s cream colored wool and cashmere blend wrap coat was the perfect choice to accompany her champagne sequined dress, adding a layer of elegance without covering up the spangles. Her coordinating pumps and clutch completed the wintry party outfit.
Everyone noticed when Jessica Chastain stepped out of the Walter Kerry Theatre where she’s performing in the Broadway play The Heiress in an eggplant trench coat by Burberry. This everyday jacket is perfect for on-the-go looks—its unexpected color undercuts the trench’s preppy sensibility. Chastain added a pair of retro sunglasses and a maroon leather satchel.
Katie Holmes looked uptown chic in a navy blue Balenciaga cocoon coat. This cozy style is an alternative to the peacoat, getting its shape from a retro silhouette. The cocoon coat is easy to dress both up and down—Holmes landed somewhere in the middle, accessorizing the dark tones of her coat and black skinny pants with pointy heels and a contrasting purse.
