Coco Chanel once advocated wearing white way past Labour Day, so it’s only fitting that we’d find two current style icons following in her footsteps while wearing none other than Chanel. At the sixth annual MoMa Film Benefit last night in New York, Jessica Biel and Alexa Chung were dressed in two very different white tweed looks from the label’s recent resort and couture collections. The benefit also honoured Tilda Swinton for her contribution to cinema on her 53rd birthday, which, serendipitously, is also Chung’s. Talk about a lucky day!

Jessical Biel wore a contour hugging white tweed Resort 2014 dress featuring two front pockets, golden chain details around the shoulders and bust. Topping things off with a white and black plexiglas minaudière, Biel added some aqua eyeliner for a pop of colour against a neutral pink lip and a simple cat eye. A brown metallic pump adds the perfect contrast against the gold chain detail and glossy clutch.

On the flip side, Alexa Chung went for a structured and conservative look with her Chanel Couture Spring 2013 white button down tweed dress featuring metallic silver button details down the front and on shoulders. The It girl injected the perfect amount of edge with a chain strapped flap front Chanel bag and neutral gray pumps with a red lip tying edge and elegance together.
