It was a night of rock and roll style from kick-ass ladies. Action star Zoe Saldana, model Molly Sims,musician Ashlee Simpson and actress Mena Suvari came out to celebrate the Rockand Republic collection launch for Kohl’s.
The Hammerstein ballroom in midtown Manhattan was built out in an elaborate litrunway for a parade of edgy, rock-inspired denim fashions. Tops were really sexy, with metallic fabrics,studded embellishments, sequins or shoulder-bearing cuts. Jeans were slim, in a range of colors. Really short shorts and miniskirt lengths bared sexy legs.
Accessories really brought edge to the runway looks. Feathered earrings and layered necklaces gave that rocker edge. Chunky bracelets, sharp fedoras and compact little clutch purses elevated casual outfits to more sleek ensembles. Colored pumps or studded platform heels kicked up the diva factor in footwear
Seeing the show styled so well with the accessories really helps me in my own denim dressing…I’m not a jeans girl on a regular basis. I’m old school in feeling like I need to be put together anywhere I go. The embellished tees and accented denim ensembles totally showed me that jeans can be a high fashion statement (without breaking the bank!).
I already picked out my favorites from shopping online last week. After seeing the show, my new favorites are bright red jeans and the foil printed studded one-shoulder top.
