Jordana Brewster in West Hollywood

Posted on July 18, 2012

If Kristin Davis embodied the chic Manhattanite in her GMA dress, then Jordana is the very picture of the casually chic L.A. girl here. The trend-focused tend to obsess on the WHEN in fashion, but here at T Lo Fashion Assessments, Int’l, we’re all about the WHERE.


Dallas star Jordana Brewster heading to Urth Cafe in West Hollywood carrying a Céline bag.

Low-key, laid back and cute. Everything about this is working for us. Yes, even the flip-flops and the worn-down-to-its-nubs chambray shirt. We’d normally hate that shirt but it really works well with the almost beachy-casual thing she’s got going on here. Besides, the dress, shades and bag all work to dress it up a little. Also, we hesitate to say this because we strenuously avoid body-snarking, but she looks a lot healthier here than she does on Dallas. Keep up the good work, girl. Love your hair.

    Cute dress! And of course, love the bag…

  • Introspective

    without the expensive ass bag shes toting, she’d look like a regular 9-5 chick on a laid back run, not unlike most of us on the boards. which is why Im mixed as to whether I should be excited about this.

    but ultimately easy breezy is always a good look, and especially for the present weather.

      She’d fit right in where I live — running errands, heading out for a casual lunch, picking up the kids at school. Nothing to get excited about but perfectly fine for an ordinary summer day.

  • tereliz

    She looks cute and fresh, but those shades… they’re too angular, and do nothing to soften her very striking, yet also angular features. Great dress, I just wish she’d worn real shoes. 

    • GillianHolroyd

      you are sooo right about the sunglasses. Those are Angry Sunglasses. Seriously, look at the pictures where she is not smiling.

  • homofascist

    Low-key, laid back and cute, oh, and my bag cost more than your car!

  • sagecreek

    So cute and fresh, and my, she has mastered the art of showing off the free bag, so props!

    •  I find it amusing that she is practically dislocating her spine to keep that bag in view.

  • Kayceed

    I dunno. Seems pretty casual for a lunch in a restaurant.

    • SapphoPoet

      Depends on the restaurant…

  • Sartorial_She

    Gorgeous bag. But what I really want is her hair!

  • didntwanttomakeaprofile22

    so wrong on both embodiment counts

  • That bag is half the size of her body.

  • alyce1213

    Slightly smaller bag, much better sandals would’ve worked for me.

  • PaulaBerman

    I thought it was Kate Middleton for a second and was rather shocked. I’m recovering now…

    • charlotte

      I thought Allison Williams. But yours is much funnier.

      • H3ff

        Still appropriate though as Allison Williams impersonates Kate Middleton.

        • charlotte

           I actually read about that yesterday after posting my comment!

  • lamamu

    I just can’t marry the Celine bag and the flip flops. She needs different shoes, even different (less Walmart-y) flip flops would be better. (Note: I do not condone the use of flip flops outside the pool/public shower zone.)

  • meowing

    What on earth do you need such a big bag for?  Maybe a weekend getaway, in lieu of luggage, but lunch??

  • SapphoPoet

    Very cute. Glad to see that she isn’t carrying some huge black leather un-summery bag (unlike some celebs we’ve seen this summer who seemingly can’t find a summer bag/purse). This looks like a normal person’s outfit. 

  • DaveUWSNYC

    Huge bag. Cute outfit though.

  • Larkin21

    She does look great. I want that dress.

  • JillSpill

    The bag is too big – and does she have an anchor in it to weigh it down that much?

  • AthenaJ

    Effortlessly beautiful, I need to learn how to do that.

  • kingderella

    fully agree. fresh, cute, unpretentious.

  • Judy_J

    Very cute….I just wish she’d opted for a better shoe than the flip-flops she’s sporting.  A cute little strappy sandal with a little heel would have been perfect.

  • MilaXX

    I like this look, but I don’t like the bag with it. I don’t mind an oversized bag, but this one is nearly eclipsing the entire look.

    • I agree.  The bag’s too formal and a little too old.

  • Snailstsichr

    I like the sunglasses.

    • kimmeister

      I LOVE the sunglasses!

  • TomBord

    The bigger the bag ladies, the bigger the baggage. 

  • Zippypie

    I hate that shirt.  Seriously hate it.  Everything else looks okay, but that shirt….!!!  BURN it!

    • Rebecca Jay

      I love the shirt but hate the buttons.

      Sunglasses are fab – bag is old lady, right down to the color.

  • guest2visits

    The bag is way too nice for such an outfit.  Maybe if she switched out the shirt and the flip-flops for something else;
    then the bag would be in.

  • I thought I saw her in a preview for the show while I was at the gym but couldn’t believe it was her because she looked almost skeletal in the quick snippet I saw. 
    Love the bag! Wish I could look that good in crappy flip flops. 

  • formerlyAnon

    Cute, no big deal except that she’s prettier than average and her purse is expensive. Any purse that large should have a shoulder strap, IMO.  (Accessories designers world over care soooo much about my opinion. I’m sure of it.)

  • aeg66

    That shirt looks too much like my grams old 90s crap from Chicos then again the bag reads too formal & old for her as well & Im must say she needs to put those few lbs back on. Even my guy friends who drool over her in the first Fast & the Furious say shes too thin.

  • jw_ny

    what all’s she got in that big ass bag?  It’s huge!

  • MemHey

    I saw “GMA” and immediately thought “Gospel Music Association”… Sweet tea, anyone?

  • ChaquitaPhilly

    Not sure why she needs to lug a suitcase around with her, but she looks great and very “summer-ish” !

  • “…we strenuously avoid body-snarking…”

    And may I just take a moment to tell you how much I (dare I say we?) appreciate that?  Really a lot.  xoxo

  • Wellworn

    That is a bigass ugly purse.  I care more about purses than shoes, that’s just me.  That purse is the equivalent of all those nude platform shoes that y’all hate so much.  You can see structurally how poorly this very expensive purse is made, by seeing those sad little purse feet in between that saggy bulgy bottom.  That purse probably costs as much as I pay for in rent for a year.  Yuck!

  • That free bag she’s promoting is just too big for the outfit….

    “Also, we hesitate to say this because we strenuously avoid body-snarking, but she looks a lot healthier here than she does on Dallas. Keep up the good work, girl. Love your hair.”
    TLo- Thank you. 

    This is why I love you guys. You are in the position to be very critical of women’s bodies, and you consciously use language that doesn’t hate or discriminate women.   You truly focus on the style, clothing, personality and presentation. You focus on the irony that these people have the world’s most talented fashion designers as their closet, and they still manage to look like a hot mess.  We all are aware of the media’s power on the cult of body image, and you two take the higher road. Thank you for being pro-woman, thank you for respecting women and not treating them like a 2D glossy magazine spread. Thank you for being real and respecting all different body shapes and sizes. 

    Snaps up!
