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?
