Carolina Herrera’s Simple Style

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Fashion Designers,

Carolina HerreraCarolina Herrera's wardrobe staple is a white blouse.

The designer is famous for her beautiful gowns which have been worn by a host of celebrities including Renée Zellweger, Amy Adams and Tina Fey and also designed the wedding dress for the Twilight Saga's Bella Swan, but Caroline takes a more laid back approach to clothes herself.

"I love them and I've worn them all my life. They are my security blanket, as they say. They make me feel secure, and I can match them up with anything. They're very feminine, and when I'm getting dressed in the morning and can't decide what to wear, a white blouse always fits the bill. They also bring back happy memories. As a child, I wore white blouses to school, and I remember them always being ready and perfectly ironed. They go better than anything else with certain outfits, short skirts as well as pants, and even long evening skirts. They're also very flattering, because they light up one's face."

Renee Zellweger Swears By Carolina Herrera

Renee Zellweger in Harper's BazaarA-list actress always chooses gowns by the same designer for red carpet events.

The Oscar-winning actress admits that when it comes to big events, she always goes to Carolina Herrera, as she trusts the “classic” tailoring of the Venezuelan-born fashion designer.

“It’s classic. It’s beautifully tailored. No surprises.”

However, the 41-year-old star revealed she doesn’t select pieces by Carolina Herrera only for their aesthetic charm, but because she would feel too guilty if she had a whole host of designers creating pieces she would never end up wearing: “I can’t have 90 people making things for me that I might not wear. To have so many people expend so much effort potentially for nothing - I wouldn’t sleep at night.”

The slim star - who in the past has been known to stick to a strict macrobiotic diet of fish and vegetables - has reportedly put on 10lbs in recent months after boyfriend told her he likes women with “a little more meat on their bones.”

“She banned dairy a long time ago but Bradley loves ice cream and cheese and Renee’s started to join in. Potatoes are back on the menu, too. Bradley’s convinced her to loosen up and she’s loving it. Bradley’s been very vocal in telling her he’s more attracted to women with a little meat on their bones and Renee’s doing her best to oblige him.”
