Jennifer Aniston in Balmain Navy Blazer

Actress Jennifer Aniston was spotted at the airport in a Balmain blazer ($2,110) in navy. This slim cut blazer jacket features slightly padded shoulders, a double breasted front closure with gold-toned embossed crest logo buttons on the front and wrist cuffs. I love how she went for that All-American preppy look, which I believe suits her well.


Balmain Wool & Leather Teddy Jacket

Balmain continues with another intriguing menswear collection by creative director Christophe Decarnin for the Fall/Winter 2010-11 seasons. Here is one of the top pieces from the collection, the Teddy jacket ($2,914-$3,382), which features black wool on the body, black calf leather sleeves with zips on the seams, and an aeronautical embroidered badge on the left chest. Although it was specifically designed to combat chilly weather, this is without a doubt one jacket that will do more than just protect you from the cold.

Balmain has come into the world of fashion to light a fire and burn as bright as possible. When you hold these or any other piece of the collection in your hand, it all makes sense! Beaded in Balmain’s signature camouflage colors, with gold bead accents, these are nothing less then perfect. Live a little!

Monica performed on the George Lopez Show looking fabulous as always. She was wearing a white Balmain jacket (about $3,000) from the Spring/Summer 2009 collection, which is single breasted with satin lapels, pockets on either side of waist and bold shoulders. Monica also wore a pair of Dsquared sandals ($1,118), which feature a 6.2 inch heel, an ankle buckle belt closure, a leather sole, and metallic studs. She is definitely turning heads in these glamorous shoes!

Balmain’s $1600 Slashed Army T-Shirt

Worn and weather-beaten is always interesting when it comes to clothes because it usually means they’ve really been lived in and there are some good stories to be had. This Slashed Army T-Shirt from Balmain is the short-cut way to achieve that look, coming pre-destroyed so you get all the well-worn character with none of the experience. All for just $1,625.

Personally I think this look goes in with torn jeans — the holes are only cool if they happened naturally. If this was a t-shirt that was actually worn by an army gal and got all those tears out in the field I would totally love it. But alas it’s not, just 100% cotton with “distressed hole detail.” Available online at Net-A-Porter.
