Emily Mortimer stepped out on the pink carpet for the premiere of the Pink Panther last night in this lovely Chloe dress and jacket. She paired gold metallic sandals with a gold clutch and topped off the look with a vintagey rhinestone choker and matching cuff. I love the look which is dressy and expressive, but clean and architectural.
Her Chloe ensemble brings me to something I've been thinking about today. A few months ago I read about big shoulders making a comeback as a trend in 09, but had shoulder pads in mind and immediately blocked it along with memories of Alexis Carrington's overly harsh silhouette's, and Bill Cosby's sweaters from the '80's.
But today I saw someone sporting the look on the street, so it must be making its way in. Instead of pads however, it's about cut, puffed and ruched shoulders, and it is in fact quite lovely. And heaven knows, fashion needs a big game changer right now to get people back into the stores in pursuit of new looks. Below are some of the big shoulders from the Chloe Spring 09 collection. Tell me, would you wear an abbreviated version of these looks?
