Spying a stylish coverup

 

Los Angeles Times

Bond Girls are known for being symbols of beauty, class and style, so it’s no surprise that actress Berenice Marlohe has taken on the role. She plays Severine in the upcoming 23rd James Bond film, “Skyfall,” slated for release Nov. 9.

The French beauty has been spotted around the globe proving just how stylish she can be in outfits worthy of any Bond love interest. She chose a sleeveless royal blue peplum number by Julien Macdonald at a photo call in Moscow and a draped aqua blue dress by Roksanda Ilincic in Istanbul, Turkey.

Marlohe was photographed at a recent photo call for the film at the Crosby Street Hotel in New York City in a Salvatore Ferragamo fall 2012 military-green coat and Tod’s knee-high boots. On the runway Ferragamo showed this look with matching high-waist pants, a silky top, belt and riding boots. Marlohe covered up, but the coat’s shape, her loose waves and high boots amp up the sex appeal, proving you don’t have to show skin to turn heads.

For a sharp coat to wear over an outfit or by itself, try the wool military coat from Victoria’s Secret for $188 or the military piped girly coat from Top Shop for $190.

Whether you’re looking to ward off the chill or simply need a pair of shoes to go with your new trench, a functional, stylish boot works for any occasion. Marlohe’s Tod’s boots feature a fashionable suede top and a functional leather bottom. For a similar style, try the blocked platform knee-high boots from Arden B for $62.30, the Cougar women’s mirage knee-high boot from Amazon.com for $124.50 or the Annie shoes women’s Denver boot from Amazon.com for $44.50.

You’ll be cozy and stylish at the same time.

    ‘Downton’ costumers transform Lady Edith

    Poor, sad Lady Edith. Early on in Downton Abbey, the PBS Masterpiece Classic family saga, it seemed that the much-overlooked, undervalued middle sister of the Crawley clan had been dealt a bad hand. Her assertive nose, wan manner and decorously dowdy wardrobe had apparently rendered her marriage prospects slim to nil. Be kind to her; she has so few advantages, her mother urges Edith’s sister Mary. To which Mary peevishly replies that Edith has none at all.
