Soon enough the paparazzi and Chicago street style photogs will have a reason to get all stealth mode in Water Tower Park, staking out minor celebs shopping on the newly reinvented North Michigan Ave strip. Our predictions go further than classic Chi-town faces like Jeremy Piven and Oprah, we're thinking... well, hoping for Olivia Palermo, Alexa Chung, and Rachel Bilson who seem to be wearing a lot of the brands taking part in the North Michigan Avenue British Invasion.
In these pro street style shots of our three gals, Topshop seems to be the go-to brand this week. Rachel is shopping in LA wearing a silk coral maxiskirt, Olivia is at the Giambattista Valli show in Paris wearing a goldenrod maxidress and Alexa at Glastonbury wearing a cream crochet number and a mini quilted Chanel.
