Red Carpet to Real Life: Get Karolina Kurkova's Stylish Suit Look
Along with red carpet events like awards shows and movies, high profile parties are a great place for stars to strut their stuff and break out their best party clothes. Such was the case at the Bergdorf Goodman 111th Anniversary Party, where models, musicians and actors alike donned some seriously suave duds. One of the models who worked the carpet like a runway was Karolina Kurkova, who wore a trendy Roberto Cavalli tux.
Karolina made a huge statement with this printed suit and even managed to match the event background. Her look is very fashion forward, incorporating large scale prints, menswear and a sheer element all into one outfit in a loud but not over-the-top way. The print isn’t overwhelming because there are only two colors involved, and the masculine sharpness of the suit contrasts nicely with the feminine sheer of her shirt underneath. The silver heels add just a little shine, and Karolina’s slicked back hair and lack of jewelry lets the suit stand all on its own.
1. Blazer from Forever 21, $32.80
2. Blouse from NastyGal, $48.00
3. Oxfords from DSW, $39.95
4. Patterned Jeans from J. Crew, $135.00
A look this sharp is perfect for those days when you just need to look fierce, plain and simple. Black and white is a classic color palette that doesn’t overwhelm, but feel free to incorporate color anywhere in this outfit. Two strong printed pieces might be a little much for everyday, so these graphic pants should do the trick. Paired with a blazer that has a contrasting lapel, like Karolina’s, and a sheer blouse to go underneath, structure gets simple when there are only three pieces involved. Instead of heels, silver oxfords add a trendy twist and a little bit of punch to the basic black and white.
Karolina’s high fashion suit is pretty Vogue-worthy, and the everyday version can be, too! By incorporating fall’s menswear, printed and sheer trends, this outfit becomes simple, stylish and strong. Keep the jewelry and hair to a minimum, like Karolina, and focus on the jacket and pants, or add a little something to make your look your own!
