Yes, they did it again.
Helen Mirren and Jane Fonda were knockouts when they walked the runway for L’Oréal this past fashion week in Paris.
Ok, the truth is I didn’t adore their outfits but I absolutely adore them and their ability to shine.
They are both outstanding women and if they aren’t “better not younger” then I don’t know who is.
Bravo L’Oréal for your first runway show and for the celebration of all women.
By the way, the hair was fabulous, too.
I did take particular notice of the combination of Ellery coat, shirt and pants worn by Helen Mirren.
I mean the navy (Is it dark navy? Even if it’s not this is the combination i’m going for), the grey and the white worn together. It is a brilliant combination and with Mirren’s red lips we should have this working for us in our wardrobes.
Navy I do occasionally – note to self – wear it more often.
Grey plaid pants or grey flannel trousers? Yes, please.They look brilliant with navy and I would definitely like to see them happening in my coming-very-soon winter wardrobe. Grey, nothing new to me, is something I usually pair with white and black. It’s time to bring the navy back. Navy I tend to wear with navy or even black but how good it looks with a grey check?
White blouse buttoned up? We’ve got that.
Man style shoes – brogues, lace ups – they may just be the winter version of the mule for me.
Inspiration comes in many ways and while I might not be able to carry off such a wide-legged trouser or extreme jacket I can adapt and find a new and eminently wearable look for me.
To me this is what fashion week is all about; seeing the upcoming trends, being excited to re-invigorate our wardrobes with fashion updates taken from the runway and celebrating the creativity and beauty of it all.
It is even better when women like Jane Fonda and Helen Mirren are closing the Champs Elysées. xv
A Winning Combination
