Style: Vogue's It Girl

Vogue got Rashida talking about her style and favorite designers, stores and shoes.


We always love a girl with style and substance—but a wicked, accessible sense of humor never hurts, either. So, if you are looking for a girl like that, you must see Rashida Jones in I Love You, Man (opposite Paul Rudd and Jason Segel) this weekend. The daughter of music producer Quincy Jones and actress Peggy Lipton, Jones is no stranger to the warm rays of the spotlight, but she has become a bona fide breakout star with roles in The Office and its upcoming spin-off, Parks and Recreation, with Amy Poehler.

We can’t help noticing that Jones puts together outfits well; she loves Isabel Marant, A.P.C., Prada, Marni, and Phillip Lim for the wearability factor. “I work with my friend Samira Nasr—she’s an incredible stylist—to come up with fresh but elegant looks that don’t look like what everyone else is wearing,” Jones said.

Last week at the L.A. premiere of I Love You, Man, she sported an Alaïa dress, Fred Leighton jewelry, a Prada bag, and Manolo shoes. “In a perfect world, I would dress like a Japanese girl who lives in Paris—my style’s usually some variation on preppy classics like oxford shirts, cardigans, jeans, ballet flats, in basic colors with some hints of girly but architectural pieces.” Jones says she likes to build her closet with pieces that she can wear over and over again in creative combinations. You’ll also find her at smaller boutiques (“It’s good to support them during this time”) like Curve, Steven Alan, Creatures of Comfort, and Stacey Todd in L.A., and Mich Margo or Castor and Pollux in New York. And for shoes? “Christian Louboutin, Givenchy, Chloé, and Repetto are the best for me. They must be perfect, or else I won’t buy them.” What’s perfect? we had to know. “Perfect meaning comfortable and gorgeous,” she replied. Good thinking!
