With an equally successful acting career and style status, Jamie Chung simultaneously makes us envious and inspired with her fashion blog, What the Chung. Topping best-dressed lists is a common occurrence for Chung, and her following has flung her into collaboration territory: big-box discount retailer T.J. Maxx recently announced they will be working together on a project that explores women’s clothing choices at different ages and stages of their lives.
A few days after the news broke, Chung stunned in a floaty, strapless sunshine-yellow mini-dress on the Godzilla premiere’s red carpet that was picked up from — where else? — T.J. Maxx. In honour of the style chameleon’s endlessly drool-worthy parade of incredible outfits, here’s one stylish celeb, four top looks:
The bride-to-be was the one to watch at this season’s Bridal Fashion Week, and thanks to her guest diary spot posted on InStyle.com that covered all the shows, peeking at both Chung’s outfits and behind the scenes activities were easily done. Nailing the fashion/bride look, the floaty white camisole hinted at wedding bells while the slim-cut pencil skirt, fiery jacket and heels combo shook out the primness. "I have this amazing black and white caged skirt from Elizabeth and James that I wanted to rock," she says of her ensemble. "I'm also trying to wear more colour, so I went with a bold red blazer by Reese and Riley."
Masterfully mixing colour, print and texture, Chung looked ever the spring style it-girl, highlighting her happiness for the versatility of the ever-popular bomber jacket. Paired with a silk floral shirt and leather pants, the complete look was original and style savvy.
Very runway to real way, this outfit looks so freaking chic she could easily be mistaken for a high fashion ad campaign in this shot. Taken from a day spent strolling with some other chic gals from Refinery 29, this photo induces a whole other level of envy.
Looking equally fashionable in a ladylike ensemble and a casual getup that highlights hightops is no easy feat; not many can pull off drastic style differences comfortably. Then again, not many are fashion chameleons as talented as the one and only Jamie Chung.
