Drama. Feathers. Fur.

These are the feelings I have about the ensemble that J. Crew's creative director, Jenna Lyons, wore to Solange Knowles' wedding in New Orleans over the weekend. I am obsessed with this, and have now began to deeply consider the sartorial power of a white wedding. Except in this scenario, I would wear something like this, not the (equally cool, to be sure) cape-and-dress combo Solange wore for her big day.

Ms Lyons is no stranger to the dramatic maxi skirt + shirt combo, and I believe this is the same skirt she wore to the Met Gala (with a casual cashmere sweater) in 2011. (She actually wears a shirt and skirt to the Met Gala every year, I am pretty sure.) She is also a master of the brunette-and-red-lip combo, as well as the casual-coat-as-cape move. She has a lot of go-to moves, and a lot of hyphenated styling moments in her arsenal. Here, she uses them all in one dramatic, fantastic outfit. I love it.

  1. Sometimes we may feel empathy for celebrities and their experiences. Some celebrities even serve to highlight issues which need exploring.

  2. I held an event here, and it couldn't have gone any smoother. An infinite list of food items were there at Chicago Wedding Venues. Their staff and manager were excellent. As an event coordinator, they made my job extremely easy.
