Walking around with paint splattered all over your outfit might sound like a fashion nightmare, but there are three stars who think just the opposite!
Nina Dobrev, Leslie Mann, and Abigail Spencer all stepped out in J. Mendel designs that closely resemble a Jackson Pollock painting. The three gals, who all stunned in different cuts and silhouettes, proved that what looks like an artist's disaster could really be a work of art.The ready-to-wear look from the French atelier is described as "exploded-floral-print silk cady" and appears in five different designs within the collection. Each of the pieces range from $1,880 to $5,350.
Naturally, each star put their own spin on the multi-colored creation.
Spencer stepped out in one of the ready-to-wear styles featuring a demure tea length cut and a pleated bustier neckline. She kept the garish print at bay by adding a belt, which kept the painted portions strictly on the side of the frock. The "Suits" stunner, 32, finished off her prim appearance with a pair of simple black stilettos and a black clutch, but punched up the fun factor with a pop of color on her lips.
"This Is 40" star Leslie Mann, 41, finagled a custom-designed ball gown from the fashion house in order to attend the punk-themed 2013 Met Gala in New York City. Mann took the most dramatic approach (which was fitting considering the event) and paired her high-fashion ensemble with an oversized black necklace, an orange clutch, and a poufy updo. Her look was certainly a far cry from Dobrev's youthful style.
"The Vampire Diaries" hottie, 24, popped a pose in the collection's pantsuit at the 2013 Teen Choice Awards on Sunday. The trouser and blouse combo showed off her gorgeous décolletage and accentuated her mile-long legs. Dobrev's pick was also the cheapest of the looks with a $1,880 price tag. But her attire definitely didn't look like it was from the bargain bin, and the newly single actress polished off the daring outfit with black strappy sandals, a high ponytail, and a red clutch.
While there's no fair way to compare all three ensembles, there is certainly one lesson to be learned from this particular collection: What could look like an eyesore if it was hanging in a store may actually be a stunning red carpet-ready ensemble
