Leelee Sobieski Goes for Minimalist-Chic in Dramatic Jil Sander Skirt

Known for her innocent looks during her teenage years, Leelee Sobieski has transformed into a bonafide fashion icon specializing in haute couture-inspired designer pieces. The 29-year-old actress attended the New Museum Spring Gala in New York City last Wednesday and stole the show with her minimalist-inspired Jil Sander ensemble.

Leelee sported a simple white shirt, which she tucked into a chic midi skirt with a side panel fold that added dramatic effect. She wore no accessories at all and kept her hair and make-up to a minimum, making her hot red lips the focal point of her face.

Who knew you could make a plain white shirt work for a formal event by pairing it with a dramatic skirt?

How are trends made? Sometimes, the staunchest authorities in fashion recommend what to buy and the public blindly follow, even if the recommendation is occasionally on the dubious side.
