When you’re rocking a statement clutch like Jenna’s, which is emblazoned with butterflies, the rest of your look has to be sleek. She clearly got the memo, judging by the wide leg jumpsuit and classic red lip she picks for the Alice + Olivia L.A. store opening.

Culotte separates, like these Vilshenko pieces are pretty hard to pull off, sure. And it’s borderline impossible to get away with topping them with Pippi Longstocking braids like Alexa’s at the launch of her Nails Inc. collection in London. What helps her pull it off? She’s cool enough to have her own nail line in the first place.
