Celebrity Street Style of the Week: Jessica Alba, Rachel Bilson, & Rosie Huntington-Whiteley



Every week, I scour the web to find inspiring outfits on your favorite celebs and help you recreate their looks. However, over the past few weeks, it seems like most celebs have migrated to warm spots — namely, beaches, where they’ve mostly been sporting swimwear — making it a bit more difficult to find standout outfits to recreate for you guys! Luckily, I found inspiration in looks seen on Jessica Alba, Rachel Bilson, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Read on to see how you can get their looks for yourself.

Look 1: Jessica Alba’s Mix Mastering

Jessica Alba

Jessica Alba (who was one of the celebs to rock a bikini recently, and looked totally fit post-baby!) was spotted out and about in some colored skinny pants, a striped shirt mixed with a leopard-print scarf, ankle boots, cat-eye sunglasses, a beanie hat, and a green handbag. This outfit is great for a casual day, perhaps running errands or hanging out.

Obviously this look is comfortable and simple, but the accessories are the key to making it trendy; for example, the leopard scarf against the stripe print of the top is completely unexpected but looks great.

Jessica’s look is playful with all these fun accessories: the leopard print scarf, beanie hat, cat-eye sunglasses, and green handbag. I chose a royal blue beanie as a pop of color to bring out the stripes in the top; it also mixes well with the green handbag. Cat-eye sunglasses add a bit of retro flair, while olive green skinnies keep the outfit neutral and understated, letting the accessories do the talking. Black heeled ankle boots like Jessica’s work with this look, but for a more casual vibe, I went with some neutral lace-up flat booties.

Look 2: Rachel Bilson’s Marvelous Maxi

As a college fashionista, I’m always looking for pieces to add to my wardrobe that I can wear all year round. Normally, you’d think a floral maxi skirt or dress could only be worn in the spring or summer, but as Rachel demonstrated this week, even a flowy, floral maxi skirt or dress can be transformed to suit the chillier weather.

Rachel took hers and paired it with some leather motorcycle boots and a chunky black sweater for a seriously cool look.

To get Rachel’s look, start with a floral maxi skirt in dark, wintery hues – this one is actually a maxi dress, but by wearing it under a chunky black sweater, you give it the look of a skirt. Next, add simple accessories for a casual look: A spacious black bag, buckled motorcycle boots, and dark sunglasses finish the ensemble.

Look 3: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley Looking Rosy

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley looked positively rosy recently in skinny jeans, a rose-colored leather jacket, sweater, suede ankle boots, and a leopard print scarf. (Looks like she and Jessica Alba were thinking alike this week with their choice in scarves!) Her standout accessories in my opinion, though, were her killer vintage-looking round-framed sunglasses, which took her outfit to a whole other level.

Rosie’s colored leather jacket may be difficult to find and would likely be too expensive and trendy to invest in, so instead, I’ve gone with a coral blazer-style jacket to recreate her look. Underneath, try a chiffon shirt — this one has an uneven hem so that it’s longer in the back, making it a cool update on the traditional button-down shirt.  These suede-looking ankle booties have a looser fit, producing a slouchy look that’s similar to Rosie’s, and finally, don’t forget to add some distinct round-frame sunglasses for a vintage vibe.

    Uhh…. Just read this and as soon as I read the description of outfit 2, I went “Wait, what???” You may have had an editing mishap it seems… Because the description is NOT for this outfit, it seems to be for a past article maybe about Anne Hathaway? Cute outfit, though. I really love the “heart print” maxi! :P

    Looks like the info below Rachel’s post is wrong. I was very confused when I realized it said Anne, and referenced a shark tooth necklace. Oops! ;)

    I love the rose colored jacket, I have a vest that is a little bit lighter, but I love the color combo opportunities that it provides!

    The only outfit I’m not too fond of is Rachel Bilson’s. I think I just hate her skirt’s print though, because I like the inspired outfit so much better.

    I love Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s look. I’ve got a jacket similar to hers so I’ll have to copy that look ASAP!

    When I got this in my email, the first 2 photos were mixed up with the Star Trek post. An epic Gmail fail -_-

    When I saw Rachel Bilson’s look I thought she was wearing leggings covered in a popcorn pattern. But even when I realized I was wrong I thought the outfit was gross! Looove Jessica’s & Rosie’s outfit though.
