Hey hey… I know the photos from Korea have been released already… but there’s one more post for Suzuka: The Suzuka Rain Battle! :)
The first contender is Raquel del Rosario:
Raquel wore a red and black striped top with a navy military inspired jacket and skinny cut up jeans from Met. The booties she wore went well with military chic image.
Jessica also wore a striped sweater in black* and white. She paired the sweater with ankle length skinny jeans and black patent ballet flats. With her hair in a chignon, the overall look was quite classic and perhaps slightly nautical inspired.
So which striped top/skinny jean combination do the readers prefer? The more classic look of Jessica or the harder edged look of Raquel? :)
* Or was it navy? Hard to tell!
P.S. I prefer Raquel’s look, but it is just closer to my personal aesthetic and way of dressing. :)
For those that couldn’t afford leather, they also came in canvas… often with straps made from zippers. Cause that way, they could be used as a single strap backpack slung casually over the shoulder, or perhaps crossbody. (barf).
Well anyway, they’re back. At first it was limited to just hipsters who wore them for ironic value. Then fashion bloggers like fashiontoast started wearing them, cause they were made by Chanel. Cause yea, a branded item makes an ugly thing that much better. Everyone knows that, right? :P
Well, now all the F1 fans can curse the hipsters and bloggers because they have even made it into the F1 paddock. Jessica Michibata was spotted in Suzuka sporting a Chanel backpack a la FashionToast. :P
Don’t believe your eyes? Here is Jessica with the infernal backpack again whilst shopping at Kitson:
What do we think of this 1990s throwback? Apparently, minimalism isn’t the only thing that came back…
Jessica Michibata was spotted wearing a black and white outfit on Friday at Suzuka. It was a relatively simple outfit consisting of a bandage skirt, loose fitting blazer, and a sheer white t shirt. Yes. That t shirt was obviously quite sheer, especially in the sunlight.
So the question is, why does Jessica continue to wear black bras under light colored garments*? It’s just not very classy** looking, which is ironic seeing as how Jessica has graced the covers of the Japanese magazine Classy several times. =X
Perhaps she thought wearing a black bra would spice up the ensemble? Sorry… I’m not fond of it. =_=’
* Remember her return to the paddock? Well, at least that time the dress wasn’t sheer.
** I hate this word, it’s overused… although I used it for irony.
Wow. Jessica Michibata wore jeans on Thursday in Singapore. How odd. Well, not really. She has worn jeans before… but there was just a discussion on this blog a few days ago about covering up. And now… she has covered up. ;)
Jessica wore a pretty floral top with grey jeans. It was a nice combination and a breath of fresh air. Finally… something besides a jersey dress! She accessorized with delicate diamond jewelry, flat sandals and a Balenciaga First handbag. I’m not sure on the color of the bag, but I’m guessing this is Mastic colored leather with pewter hardware. Pewter hardware bbags are hard to find as it was only available in 2003. However due to the distance I could be wrong.
Are we glad about Jessica’s change in attire? Perhaps the male fans prefer the usual… but it’s nice to see a change once in awhile. :)
The photos from Singapore are already available… but I felt the need to finish up the material from Monza. Bear with the old material for a bit longer. :)
I normally don’t combine posts for girlfriends, but Isabell Reis and Jessica Michibata both wore white on race day at Monza.
Isabell’s dress was quite cute. The eyelet lace accents added a bohemian-peasant type of style to the dress. I normally don’t like bold earrings, but the earrings Isabell chose worked with the outfit. The shoes and belt also looked great with the dress.
Jessica usually wears dresses so I was happy to see her in separates for a change. The white camisole she wore was super cute, the pin tuck detailing gave the top a tuxedo shirt look. The skirt appeared to be a bandage type, which was sort of ordinary. However the stripes gave the skirt just a little more wow factor. Jessica’s accessories consisted of her usual: thin gold bangles, flat sandals, aviators, and a brand name bag.
