Clair finds out that a painting her grandmother used to own, by a relative and famous artist, is going up for auction at Sotheby’s. Clair loves this painting, she wants it back in the family and nothing is going to stop a mom-style icon from getting what a mom-style icon wants. So, she heads on over to Sotheby’s with the whole family—the Huxtables make big decisions and purchases together; that’s how they roll.
Clair, of course, dresses appropriately for the occasion. No jumpsuits (*sadface*), plaid button down shirts, or power suits in sight at Sotheby’s. She chooses this brilliant, inspired, floppy number to reclaim what is rightfully hers.
No one but Clair can pull off a 1900s-style outfit without looking ridiculous and maintaining such a high level of class, sass, and “respect the high neckline” attitude.
So floppy yet body contouring all at the same time. I DON’T KNOW HOW SHE DOES IT (starring Sarah Jessica Parker, Greg Kinnear, and Clair Huxtable).
Bold Gold Necklace over the grey ensemble.
Excellent grey belt to remind us all that underneath the bountiful supply of grey cloth draping her body, there is a terrific waist—As if we’d forget. HELLO!
Note- the fur shoulder rope, suede bag, and sensible heels all match. yum.
I see you, red manicure.
And there’s the look. “Yes, I am wearing a 1910 wool dress with matching gold jewelry. Do you have a problem? The young man behind me, Elvin, is terrified of me and you should be too.”
Lesson learned: Go to auctions looking like American Girl Samantha Parkington to get the artwork you want.
