If you’re a fan of jumpsuits but always wanted them to be unmistakably feminine rather than exuding a half-androgynous vibe, then you will absolutely love the uber-ladylike lacy white jumpsuit that Hollywood actress Yvonne Strahovski wore at the screening of TV show “Dexter” at the PaleyFest Fall Previews: Fall Farwell at the Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills, California on September 12, 2013.
Yvonne Strahovski in ALICE by Temperley White Lace Jumpsuit
Yvonne wore an all-lace white jumpsuit by ALICE by Temperley from the Resort 2014 Collection. It featured sheer three-fourth sleeves, a modest high neckline, and cropped pants. The 31-year-old looked angelic and yet very sexy in this gorgeous lacy affair.
Although we love, love, love the jumpsuit (there’s an even more stunning nude one in Temperley’s look-book), her stylist’s choice of accessories simply did not tie the look together very nicely.

The tiny dangle earrings were cool – pretty and understated, they suited her fine features. It was her footwear that we had a beef with. She wore a pair of really pretty nude patent pointy pumps by Christian Louboutin. Unfortunately, they were far too big for her and we really wonder how she managed not to fall flat on her face in those things. And with this ensemble, black would have looked much better.
Another accessory that was standing out like a sore thumb was her black clutch with a band of silver detailing – kinda like the ones you’d tote along to a wedding when you can’t decide what else to pair your outfit with. Not that that’s a bad thing, but when it has to contend with those shoes then you can’t help but think that one or the other has to go.
A belt of some kind – skinny and delicate – would also have contributed to rounding off the ensemble better, don’t you think?
We do, however, like her hair and makeup – a sleek ponytail and nude makeup reinforced that heavenly vibe that is inherent to the outfit, and it lights up her natural beauty too.
Really, overall, it’s a good look, but with a little extra thought on the accessories it could have been an exemplary one.
