What do Kim Kardashian and Rihanna have in common? Other than world-famous rear views, both are coveting Ulyana Sergeenko’s silky kimonos. Kim wore a teal robe to Jimmy Kimmel Live, while Rihanna styled her nude version with a matching bodysuit at the MTV Movie Awards. We dedicated a Look of the Day poll to the boudoir-inspired trend on Wednesday, then asked you to play favorites. It didn’t surprise us that Rihanna took first place. What else was on our minds this week? On Monday, we rounded up our favorite high necklines of late. In a sequined black Tamara Mellon dress, Karlie Kloss looked sexy and chic without revealing too much skin. Her look won first place, followed by Lottie Moss’ more casual blue suede number. On Tuesday, we turned our attention to our favorite performances at the Lollapalooza music festival in Chicago. Indie It girl Jenny Lewis took to the stage in a starry rainbow suit, which won your vote by a landslide. And on Friday, we had a little too much fun hunting down photos of Pharrell-inspired Western hats. The musician’s Vivienne Westwood topper sparked a global phenomenon last January, inspiring stylish risk-takers like Anna Dello Russo to try one on for size. See all of the week’s winning looks here, plus a few runners-up for extra inspo.
Indie rock ladies have always had a bit of a girl crush on Jenny Lewis, she of the auburn bangs and a seemingly endless procession of sailor rompers, tap pants, and sixties frocks. More than a few Coachella-goers this weekend will be channeling that vintage Cali vibe in pieces from Geronimo, a new line launched by Lewis’ longtime stylist Jenny Reyes. Reyes is obsessed with vintage and the tales that come with thrifted pieces, and her own line comes with an equally interesting back story. The 27-year-old designer met Lewis and her band, Rilo Kiley, after sneaking into 21+ shows at L.A.’s Spaceland back in the day. She eventually packed up her sewing machine, her art history degree, and the pattern-making skills she learned from her grandmother and headed out on the road with the band. She crisscrossed the country reworking vintage items that they found at thrift stores and making original pieces for concerts and photo shoots. Last summer she took a break from the tour bus life to hone her skills with Rodarte. “I learned about the work that goes into creating a collection, and I was inspired to work just as hard,” Reyes said. For her own line, Reyes channeled Malibu poster-girl Gidget and playful fifties beachwear, sourcing vintage fabrics from L.A. vendors. The spring line of high-waisted shorts, rompers, and swimsuits is available online and at Echo Park’s Le Bohemian Chic, and a little birdie told us that Ms. Lewis herself might sport a piece or two for her big Coachella gig.
