Grudge Match: Kim Basinger In Ralph Lauren Collection


Who: Actress Kim Basinger

Where: At the Grudge Match screening held at the Ziegfeld Theater in New York

Wearing: A navy pinstripe Ralph Lauren Collection three-piece suit, teamed with light blue striped shirt, and a printed navy tie

Verdict: Well if you are going to work masculine tailoring you might as well go for it and work the gangster look. I love, love, love this pinstripe suit on Kim Basinger, not only is the cut impeccable but the additional styling of the slicked back hair and the chain of the pocket watch is perfection.

It is a risk opting for a suit rather than a full length frock but for me Kim is totally pulling off her mobster-inspired masculine vibe with added sex appeal by adding vibrant hot red lips.

I have gushed before about my love of androgynous ensembles and this year we have had some beauties on the red carpet. How do you think Kim’s look compares to Saorise Ronan who went for a deep purple The Kooples suit at the BFI London Film Festival Awards or the sexy Michael Kors look that Julianna Margulies rocked on the red carpet?
