VIP Jackets: Members Only Makes A Comeback

02/18/2008 at 11:00 AM ET


The iconic ’80s Members Only jacket is back, along with a Hollywood following that includes Lindsay Lohan, Eva Longoria and Jennifer Hudson. While the company has kept the original kitchy tag line, “When you put it on, something happens,” they’ve brought in designer and former stylist Kelli Delaney to update the look with a new fashion-forward twist. The elastic waist, epaulet-trimmed jackets — originally in nylon — are now offered in luxe silk and leather. Cameron Diaz owns the classic bomber, $995, in glitzy gold, while Mary-Kate Olsen and Mischa Barton went for timeless black. And jackets aren’t the only thing on offer anymore. The collection has been expanded to include dresses, vests, and trenches. Wishing for a price tag that’s equally retro? Get a similar look for less with this lamé windbreaker, $58 from American Apparel.
