This is one of my favourite looks from Gillian's wardrobe- attending the NYLON and Express December/January 2011 issue event at The Writer's Room, Gillian opted for a mix of black, denim and leopard print. The result: this incredible cool-casual look. The denim shirt is a must-have for spring/summer for creating a laidback vibe, and every girl should funk up their wardrobe with a dash of print. The simple black wedges, pendant necklaces and pretty topknot finish off the uber-cool look.
At a CBS and CW Premiere party in LA last year, Gillian rocked the red-runway in another relaxed but stylish ensemble- I love the colour mix in her girly metallic skirt, teamed with a more tomboyish khaki unbuttoned shirt. She accessorizes perfectly to tie the look together- adding a velvet-banded trilby, black wedge boots and a bold leopard print chain purse.
Here's how to dress for summer. At the 2011 Hurley Walk the Walk National Championship at the US Open of Surfing, Gillian embraced her cali roots and channelled this super-cool beach look of a tied navy and pink checked shirt, orange bikini top and denim cut-offs. She toughened up the outfit with piratey black ankle boots, a brown leather shoulder bag and a blue bandana. I love!
For another day on Huntington beach, Gillian wore a Guns 'n' Roses vest with another khaki oversized shirt over the top, paired with mussed up surfer waves, beaded bracelets, rings and more necklaces to create a cool grunge look.
To the opening of a Louis Vuitton store in Santa Monica to benefit 'Heal the Bay', August 2010, Gillian opted for a flowing black maxi skirt with a waist-cinching satin waistband, paired with a tied up green checked shirt. The two pieces work surpringly well together to create an effortless glam look and again, I adore her bun hairstyle, which accentuates her gorgeous facial features!
Gillian walks her adorable dog on the set of 90210 wearing one of her trademark hippy maxi frocks- I love the soft print and feminine colours. She looks every inch the californian girl with her tumbling blonde waves and sunnies, but she adds a unique Gillian edge with her black slouchy boots.
Another of my favourite looks- Gillian channels her inner rock chick wearing an oversized vintage band tee over an embellished black mini and adding velvet ankle boots, a brown fedora and bag and lots of quirky jewellery.
Gillian paired a vintage leather jacket with a bohemian-feel, bright, tie-dye, maxi dress to create this gorgeous yet unusual outfit. The dress is really different and cool, but the leather jacket makes it even cooler! I alos love how she matched her orange hued lippy exactly to the colours in the dress.
