Jourdan Dunn Takes On the Formal Playsuit Idea and Wins

There's nothing Jourdan Dunn couldn't wear, but her bright-white, thigh-skimming, tailored playsuit from last weekend's annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic in New York was a total knockout.

Of course she had hot weather, killer legs and the backdrop of Liberty State Park all on her side, but there's a lesson to be learnt from the British supermodel's event-dressing technique: It's totally okay to wear a playsuit—or romper, if you will—to a smart do, so long as it's tailored, unfussy and worn with chic, understated accessories. Miss Dunn opted for gold extras, and we'd be inclined to do the same—metallics add a certain glamour to the proceedings. So if dresses really aren't your thing during party and wedding guest season, then here's yet another option to enjoy.
