Y’know, we should, by all rights, absolutely hate this, but we don’t:
Jada Pinkett Smith out an about in New York City.
Les Chiffoniers Neon-trimmed Drawstring Leather Pants
Nicholas Kirkwood Neon Printed Silk-satin Pumps
First things first: We saw Jada in person at Fashion Week and without sounding like celebrity apologists, we’ll just say we were struck by how much softer she looks in person. She photographs very severe but she doesn’t really look like that in real life. Whippet-thin, of course; like most celebs, but striking and pretty in a way her pictures don’t always show.
Second point: LOVE those shoes, girl. In fact, it’s the shoes – and that chic, stiff, coat – that really make this look for us. The former are fun and eye-catching, and the latter gives the look some fashion-cred. It also helps counteract…
Third point: THE DRAWSTRING PANTS. But we’re gonna have to say we don’t actually mind them all that much. She did what she had to do to make them work and make them look chic instead of downscale. For a “street” outfit, this is all working for us. Yes, even the drawstring, neon-striped pants.
