Mix-it-up mama


Penelope Cruz was at the premiere for her movie, “Broken Embraces” Sunday night in NYC. She wore an interesting all gray look,  pairing a long flowing silky skirt (yeah I thought it was a dress at first too), with an insaneeeeeee asymetrical zip hooded vest & leather jacket (yeah I thought it was a one-piece jacket too, stop deceiving us Pe!).

Omg I want it NOW.

So, I saw the pix from the premiere and instantly became obsessed with the look, especially the jacket/vest combo. I did a little research and found out that the entire look is from Haider Ackermann’s Fall’09 collection.  Compare the runway pix, to Penelope above.

So what do you think of the look? Do you like mixing it up? Personally I love pairing a killer jacket with a more feminine and girly look, it tames the girly-ness a bit and adds a certain edge that you wouldn’t get otherwise. To be honest, Penelope is rocking it, from hair & makeup (love the bronze lids, simple lips, and umm hellooo she’s even got adorable chocolate nails!)  to outfit, adding the finishing touches with her classic sultry allure.

Hot damn. WERQ it mama!


Pix of the jacket and vest…..



It looks so toasty and chic, with the vest being 100% wool, and the jacket 100% leather.

Sigh if only I had a few thousand to splurge, this look (minus the skirt) would be absolutely fab, especially to make a transition into Fall.
