Get the Look: Jennifer Connelly's Printed Coat

01/11/2007 at 06:00 AM ET

We are always looking for ways to look fabulous in a snap, especially this time of year. Jennifer Connelly, out and about doing press for Blood Diamond, reminded us that one of the simplest and most unexpected ways to look cool and pulled together is a printed coat. How hip and chic is her Dries van Noten diamond print coat with those killer pumps? Here’s how to get the look — and with a cheaper price tag than Jennifer’s $2100 version.

Want a floral feel? Try a flower pattern from Trina Turk, $436, or a leafy one from Anthropologie, $244.95.

Want something you won’t see on all your friends? Tracy Feith ($309) makes one with several different color combos and patterns from which to choose.

Want to stick to black and white? Try a houndstooth at Forever 21, $60, or at Bebe, $198.

Want a more classic pattern? Try a plaid from Frenchi, $148 or BCBG Max Azria, $262.80, for the same effect.

To order a Dries van Noten coat like Jennifer’s, call 212-826-8900.

She kinda looks or reminds me of Dita Von Teese in this picture. Anyway, I really don’t think this print would for for me.

She kind of looks like Dita Von Teese in this picture. Anyway, I really don’t think this print would work on me.

i understand where she was trying to go w/this, but it looks too much like a bathrobe & slippers..!

steph on

the only ones i liked are Jennifer’s or the one by Trina Turk. don’t like the plaids.

Sorry, but light colored shoes and dark colored nylons make for a fashion DON’T everytime as far as I’m concerned. She should lose the nylons, and really, black shoes would have looked better. The coat is cute, but it looks like she isn’t wearing anything under it. Sort of reminds me of a “flasher”. I think it would be cuter with a bit of fabrice showing from underneath – and DEFINATELY LOSE THE NYLONS!!!! UGH!

I agree with the bathrobe/slippers thing. Nothing cute about it.

I don’t like the coat at all. Jennifer Connelly is so pretty, and the busy coat just detracts from her natural beauty. And the white shoes with black hose? ICK!
