Suits Fashion: A Roland Mouret Love Affair

It happened again: Suits wardrobe lust. It’s not often that the same topic warrants a double-post, but whoever has been styling the ladies (and men) of Bravo’s Suits is doing a kick-ass job. Let’s zero-in again on one of our favourite female powerhouses: Ms. Gina Torres, also known in the series as Jessica Pearson.  A recent episode entitled “Bad Faith” had us captivated by more than just the storyline.  In the episode, Pearson opted for a beautiful form-fitting rich plum dress, with draping and zipper detailing in all the right places.

It took some probing, but I was finally able to pin the dress back to French Designer Roland Mouret. The asymmetric crepe-jersey dress retails at Net-A-Porter for $1,455 USD. Talk about expensive taste! However, it’s not the first time Pearson has been seen in this designer. A previous episode also featured Roland Mouret – this time, his Brownlow stretch cotton-blend dress.

It’s safe to say that Pearson has fantastic, but expensive taste. For those of us who aren’t high-profile Managing Partners, we’ve got some Soulcialite-approved alternatives to get the look.
