    Celeb Stalk

    Today's theme is BLAZERS!

    More than a cashmere wrap or fur stole, blazers are the new night cover-up. But also unlike the wrap or fur, blazers can transition equally from late-night parties to work or even just a regular shopping day. Casual, chic, and ageless, a blazer is also a truly unisex item (meaning you can always borrow one from a brother or boyfriend). And it's not just the fashion world that's going crazy for them - celebrities have gone ga-ga for this collegiate staple as well (not meant to hint towards Lady GaGa)!

    Featured on WhoWhatWearDaily. I love Gwyneth's outfit - a combination between summer-style gold gladiators and fall-style black jeans and of course, the blazer. 
    Kate Moss is one of my personal style icons, and she hasn't failed me yet! This blazer's satin lapels are similar to a mens-style tuxedo and is a nice contrast to the other matte black pieces. The serious all black is the perfect backdrop to showcase the playful dress from her eponymous Topshop line.
    The short sleeves on Lou Doillon blazer is a nice twist on the usual long sleeves. It's
    u n b u t t o n e d, but you can see that it's double-breasted, which is also another nice twist. She wears it with a simple white tank-top and unkempt hair, which immediately tones down the fanciness of the ensemble (or dresses up the casualness, whichever way you look at it)
    Always on my fashion radar is Keira Knightley, who always delivers a great outfit. The colour combination is superb, and the booties add an edge to the classicality of the tucked-in white top (with a genius black ribbon tie) and navy blazer. The green 3.1 Phillip Lim skirt lends a playfulness as well.
    Blazers are a must-have for any real-life Gossip Girl. This one worn by Blair (Leighton Meester) has been my favourite throughout the show. It almost makes me want a uniform, just so I can breakout this little ribbon-trimmed, crest emblazoned number!
    As Rachel Bilson shows, a blazer doesn't always have to be black - sequins jazz-up the simple grey jeans and white t-shirt, and a bright-yellow oversized clutch is never a bad accessory. 
    There's nothing I don't LOVE about Sienna Miller's outfit. First off, the shoes. These red, studded Chloe booties are my #1 most coveted item - and I still don't have them! I'm almost seething with envy (in a good way, I'm not that crazy!) Second, the blouse. White, billowy, ethereal, and perfection when worn under... third, the cropped blazer, with another big trend this season, big shoulders a la Balmain. 
    You may not know who this is, but Lauren Santo-Domingo, a contributor at Vogue and low-key socialite, is always dressed to perfection. The giant lapels on this black blazer are amazing, and I love how it hits at the same point as the skirted outfit underneath. 
    Again, Keira Knightley knows how to wear a blazer. And again, creates a contrast between feminine and masculine, with a blue satin floral Phillip Lim dress set against a crisp navy blazer and worn-in tan leather bag.
    Another blazer-maker extraordinaire is Alexander Wang, whom Emily Mortimer wears to perfection. An all-black backdrop makes the pink blazer pop, and is an interesting colour for a double-breasted blazer (which, like Lauren Santo-Domingo's outfit, falls at about the same height as her mini-dress).
