isn’t there a saying that, “things aren’t always so black and white”? well they are this week on the best dressed list!

the spring 2013 fashion season just wrapped and one of the biggest trends on the runway was black, white and black and white together. from the looks of things it was also the look of choice off the runway. i hate calling black and white a trend because it really isn’t. black and white together or on their own is always chic!

jewelry designer gaia repossi and one of my favorites, vanessa traina, show up on the list a few times. how could they not they are always in black and white, usually in balenciaga or céline.

also, i use this list to sometimes point out new girls on the radar, new discoveries- this week take a look at models bette frank and suvi kopenen– can you get much prettier, can you get better dressed? not really!

well, one girl in my opinion is a little better dressed- week of chic best dressed actress kate bosworth in a simple black tank, pants, ray-bans and sandals!

this weeks list has gowns, sweatshirts, polka-dots, suits, dresses, jeans, stripes, capes, sweaters and leather jackets, however, the simplest of looks wins out- i guess sometimes things aren’t so black and white! enjoy!
