Rachel McAdams' Red Carpet Look Is Florally Fantastic

rachel mcadamsI crush hard on Rachel McAdams for a few reasons, not the least of which is her red carpet style (and her dimples, and her Canadianism). She's always trying new things and she never plays it safe. You have to admire her for that, and for the fact that she dated Ryan Gosling for a long time. The girl is clearly a winner at life. Anyway, Rachel went to the Journey 2 premiere last night and showed us once again just how awesome she is. In a sexy, transparent blue t-shirt and high-waisted floral skirt, her look was unexpected yet entirely perfect.

You may think that there's nothing more to talk about, but there is. Oh, there is.


The skirt alone would be borderline hideous, but as part as an ensemble, it works. The slit, the pattern, the fabric, it all comes together when paired with a casual tee. And yeah, that shirt probably cost more than my first car, but still, it looks pretty laid back.

And that's what I love most about the look. It's dressed up and sophisticated without looking like it's trying too hard. A tee tucked into a high-waisted skirt is definitely one of my favorite looks of all time -- I think I went through a phase in the summer of 2010 where it was all I wore -- because it's maximum style impact with so. little. effort.

You don't have to pay a lot of money for a sexy t-shirt. In fact, if you wash a white Hanes one enough, it'll become distressed and a tiny bit transparent, which is just perfect for pairing with a cute skirt. Also, Forever 21 and H&M are excellent spots to buy cheap-o tees. Shop those same places for trendy skirts and viola! You're a star. Now, if only Ryan Gosling would notice you.

Do you like Rachel's red carpet style?
