Brette Wolff of Boston felt that channeling the elegant Jackie Kennedy would be an appropriate look for the Communities in Schools dinner at the Hilton Post Oak that she attended with her beau Houstonian Kalon Joseph Reid McMahon. So she went to her mother's closet and swiped an off-white sheath by Dior, from the Dior showroom in New York, along with her mother's very serious pearls. She added a bag by Gucci, pumps by Jimmy Choo, both purchased in New York, and topped the outfit off with a feminine turquoise wrap, the origin of which she doesn't recall.
The couple looked so smashing at the business attire dinner that we decided to include them both as Style File subjects. McMahon wears only bespoke suits from Hadleigh's in Dallas. He explains that because he is so tall and lean, it's the only way to get a good fit. The secret to his high style is the Ralph Lauren Black Label fabric that is used in those suits. His shirt, tie and even his shoes are Ralph Lauren.
