In the fashion world, there is this huge battle between knowing when to add a pop of color to your ensmble and knowing when to keep it simple and classy in black. Because let’s face it, not all colors work best on every person. But how boring would you be if you decided to wear all black everything, all the time? Think of LisaRaye’s all white everything *yawn*. But this week, we saw actress Jada Pinkett-Smith show off her stylish versatility on two separate days in NYC. She wore a Peter Pilotto sleeveless sequin embroidered silk blouse and geometric pencil skirt with blue suede heels. Then, we saw her in a black lace blouse, sleeveless leather coat, and light pink pants with a black side-stripe. With one look, she gives us conservative “wife and mom” and in the other she gives us Niobe straight from the Matrix-with a girly edge.Take a look below to see some other celebrities who took a chance with color and did it pretty well, might I add.
