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.

i love the coat. BUT WHY white/cram shoues with black stockings?????? that is a HORRIBLE LOOK….should’ve worn nude hose.

Diana Itzel on

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.

reality on

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.

Rebecca on

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!

Piccyhoeface on

Oh and you might want to check your links before you put them up there. At least 2 of them are no longer available.

BC on

hmmmmm looks like a house coat to me

abc123 on

I agree with the bathrobe/slippers comment.

Melanie on

I love this look. First of all Jennifer is gorgeous and could look good in a paper bag. But that coat is so striking! I would love to have one like that. And I like the white shoes. They stand out and are different than the standard black. As for the stockings, they’re in right now. Nude hose is not. That’s why her stylist or whomever dressed her that way.

KT fr Cda on

Yup, it def looks like a bathrobe.

C on

She is really beautiful, but I don’t like this outfit.

Alice on

The coat is adorable. It doesn’t in any way resemable a bathroom.

tracie on

very dita von teese. looks nice.

enigma on

I like the contrast between black n’ white but not with this coat or nylon/shoe combo!! The pattern seems nice at first but, it’s too much after awhile……….!?!?

NEVER WEAR BLACK………………………………… stockings/pants/skirts/nylons/socks/dresses/leggins/or whatever else with WHITE footwear!!!!

And, yes, Jennifer Connelly is very beautiful!!!!!

Kristen on

Theres no point to comment on the obvious, it’s horrifying!

Stacy on

I guess there is a point of commenting on the obvious…that the coat is very chic. The fact that you can’t see the dress she’s wearing under it is what makes it look like a robe. The coat is beautiful, and so is Jennifer Connelly. She’s one of the only women that can pull off that red lipstick.

dawn on

This white shoe looks like something my grandmother would of wore.

liz on

Hate the coat…. All I can say… Also she looks sooooooo hideous it makes me want to crawl under a rock so I never have to look at her again!!!!!

Ireen on

I don’t mind the coat, although I’m not crazy about it. I hate the shoes. She looks pretty here…at least she doesn’t look anorexic like in her movie “Hulk”.

Shopgirl1 on

Nude hose, or black shoes!

Tiffanie on

Are you all like, old or something? No one wears nude stockings! Black is what’s in now. Look at all the photos of celebrities. Black stockings all over the place. And the white shoes/black stockings is very trendy too (they even wrote a piece about it on this website). Not sure of my opinion on that, but it looks pretty good here.

Jolie on

I second liz’s opinoin!!!!! She looks so hideous!!!!!!!!!!!! If she always looks like this, then I HATE her!!!!!!! If, i was her, i’d run away to liv on a deserted island!!!!!!!!!! (without mirrors, so i’d never have to look at that butt-ugly face!!!!!!!!!!
