Trendspotting: Celebs boldy wearing coats as dresses


One of the many perks of being famous is the sheer amount of wardrobe choices most celebs have access to on a regular basis. Recently, several stars have opted out of wearing traditional dresses, gowns or even pants and instead selected designer coats for various photocalls and premieres. Bérénice Marlohe started the trend back in October when she posed for photographers at the Skyfall New York City photocall in a Salvatore Ferragamo Fall 2012 military coat complete with gold buttons. She rounded out the look with a pair of Tod’s brown leather and suede boots. Next up was Penélope Cruz in November at the Venuto Al Mondo photocall in Rome. The Spanish actress combined this black leather double-breasted Versace trench with black Jimmy Choo Eros pumps. Kirsten Dunst hit the New York premiere of her film, On the Road, just last week decked out in a navy Christian Dior Spring 2013 coat-style dress. Black tights and coordinating satin sandals with contrasting pink metallic straps from the same collection wrapped up the look.

We’re not really sure how to feel about this apparent trend, but we like the simple sophistication of Kirsten’s Christian Dior creation.
