“And, lo, here we are, actually reading articles in fashion magazines about Justin Timberlake’s skilful way with tailoring. One can almost hear the late Christian Dior gently weeping.” – Hadley Freeman.

While Christian Dior might have been truly displeased with the amount of celebrity fashion designers out there today, I simply enjoy them. I watched Saturday Night Live for the first time this weekend. To my surprise, I truly enjoyed the show especially since Justin Timberlake was the host. I have never watched any of the movies in which he has starred in but from watching him on SNL I actually do feel he is a credible, talented actor. I saw that his girlfriend, Jessica Biel was wearing jeans from his line, “William Rast” and I absolutely loved them. Turns out, co-founder of William Rast, Justin Timberlake designs well too. Take a look:
I don’t really care for the amount of black used in the designs but I’m a fein for leather, studs and fringes. I love it.
I also spotted a jacket (from the photo above) on the William Rast Runway that is extremely similar to the Alexander wang jacket I wrote about a few weeks ago. Take a look:

The neckline of the William Rast jacket is larger than Alexander Wang’s but the detailing such as the zippers and the leather arms are very similar. Which jacket do you prefer?
Erin Wasson is by the way featured on the William Rast Official Website along with Justin Timberlake – Talk about a Dynamic duo! She makes everything look great… And so does Justin, for that matter. Ah.
