5 Amazing Outfits That Are Worth A Second Look

Marie Claire's junior fashion editor Holly Welch selects her favourite stand-out looks from the past seven days. Which is your favourite?


Karlie Kloss
This is such a fun outfit! You can tell she feels genuinely amazing wearing it, and what’s not to like? It’s Louis Vuitton, it’s silk, it’s lace, it’s feathers, it’s snakeskin shoes and it’s the blingiest box clutch – you can’t beat it. The simple hair and smoky eye compliment the look perfectly – a lip could have ended up cheapening the whole thing. This dress would also look lovely with a black leather biker or an oversize boyfriend tux jacket.

Diane Kruger
She’s on the list again! Wouldn’t you love to have a nose around her wardrobe? I love how she never looks too done. With this look, she’s teamed workwear classics, such as a printed blouse, grey marl skirt and flat brouges, and given it a seriously cool downtown NYC weekend vibe. If you want to add a bit of height, a cool boot (try Acne or Office), just above the ankle with a midi heel, would look great, too. The main piece of advice to remember with a look like this is: do not wear tights. Show your skin and be confident, ladies.

Marion Cotillard
If I was ever to go to Cannes this is the sort of dress I would like to waltz down the red carpet in! This fabulous piece is from Dior, and its draped back and super cool corset stop it looking like she should be waltzing down the aisle instead. She’s gone for high octane glamour with the metallic courts and diamonds, but a super bright sandal and statement necklace would be another good way to wear it.

Kate Moss
La Moss has teamed the classics here – black sweater, pale denim, Minnetonka boots and a leather biker teamed with cats eye sunglasses – to create a simple, dressed down look. I like to imagine she’s been partying all night somewhere fabulous and what a perfect outfit to cure a hangover – bar pyjamas, of course!

Gemma Arterton
I love the fact that she totally embraces her curves and doesn’t try and hide anything. She is gorgeous, and when we dressed her recently for our June cover, we saw that she really does have a fabulous body. She recently spoke about being a role model for girls with curiver figures and long may it continue. I love the gothic edge with the pointy Louboutins and Annouska spike diamond earrings. The slash neckline skims her collar bone and shows off her elegant neck. Gemma’s a real beauty and the smokey eye and flawless skin emphasise this perfectly.
