Take Her Look [For Less]

The Billboard and Jimmy Choo “Men of Style” party honors the most fashionable, trendsetting men in the music industry, celebrating the style of musicians including Nick Jonas, Mark Ronson and Leon Bridges. But the party held in Los Angeles on August 28 also featured some very fashionable ladies.

One of those fashionable ladies in attendance was Rashida Jones, who rocked printed shorts with a black button-down shirt and a black cardigan. Jones completed her look with black closed-toe ankle strap pumps and a simple clutch.

Jones’ effortless-chic look may have rivaled some of the male honorees in attendance, but her look comes at a hefty price. Her shoes alone, the Trinity 100 by Jimmy Choo, cost a lofty $895.
