There are some items of clothing that become instant classics in Hollywood, popping up on nearly every starlet around. For a while, it was this sweater. Then there was the Christian Louboutin “So Kate” pump. Everyone has a pair of J Brands. And to that list, we can add the Rebecca Minkoff “Becky” blazer, which counts at least 14 stars among its celebrity fans.
The blazer, a perennial staple in Minkoff’s ready-to-wear collections, typically comes in silk in a variety of colors (from black to melon orange to floral print), though occasionally Minkoff offers it in leather or sequin (as seen on Kaley Cuoco, second from right above). Its got a flattering, flowy silhouette that gives a girlie edge to jeans or leather pants and a tougher edge to more feminine outfits. And it’s versatile — it’s lightweight enough for the summer but structured enough for the winter. It’s not hard to see why it’s such a hit with practically every star we’ve got a style crush on.
Fans of the “Becky” include (above, from left) Olivia Palermo, Nikki Reed, Dakota Johnson, Cuoco and Lucy Hale, all of whom have put their own unique spin on the blazer. They join a list that also includes Anna Kendrick, Kristen Stewart, Jessica Alba, Shay Mitchell, Kim Kardashian and many more — though just that sample gives an idea of the diverse styles of the stars who dig this jacket.
Have you tried it on or do you own one of Minkoff’s star-loved blazers? How do you style it? What’s the go to piece in your wardrobe?
