Exposed to the fashion industry at a very young age British based designer, Vanessa Bruno grew up in the fashion world and started her own line at the age of 24. Vanessa has grown her fashion house into an empire and is among the go-to designers for Hollywood’s elite crowd; adored by celebrities like Nicole Kidman, Rachel Bilson and Kate Bosworth. Bruno is known for her clever tailoring, whimsical trapeze dresses and oversized cardigans, which are a must-have while heading into the fall season. This past week Vanessa celebrated her launch in Los Angeles with a dinner surrounded by young Hollywood loveliness
Rachel Bilson mixed two pieces from Vanessa Bruno’s spring 2010 collection, standing with the designer herself. Rachel’s tanned platform sandals are superb, paired with her striped black and white top and red mini. However, if you plan to wear this outfit heading into the fall season, we suggest pairing this outfit with these Tory Burch Victor tan leather wedges. The perforated leather upper is not only eye catching but a trend for this fall season.
Kate Bosworth is the lady in red, wearing this bold color from head to toe. Though we love Kate’s sense of style, and think that she regularly hits the fashion mark, we prefer a little contrast with our footwear and think she is over doing it on the red. Instead we would have chosen these Stuart Weitzman Avignon black patent peep toe heels. Or these Jeffery Campbell Charli black suede clogs- a modern take on the classic clog, a perfect transition shoe to take you from the heat of the summer to the chilliness of the fall.
