Jennifer Coolidge’s White Lotus super star at 61 is everywhere and BA50s love her. Hilarious and  glamorous, Coolidge’s character Tanya has revived Elizabeth Taylor’s 1950 signature Kaftan. Who thought the Kaftan could look so incredible?  By the way, Kaftan is spelled with a “C” or a “K” so either works. Apparently today’s fashionistas and celebs like  Kyle and Shahida think it’s the go to glam cruise wear look. (See below). Kyle and Shahida is the Luxury Resort wear line worn by Kyle of Real Housewives and Brand Partner Shahida.

“Elizabeth was introduced to the Kaftan in the 1950s, and they quickly became her signature look. Sported during photoshoots, on the red carpet, and on her yacht with Richard Burton, the effortless beauty and grace they possessed made her appear as if she was walking on air. During a time before celebrity stylists and personal shoppers, Elizabeth took the risk of introducing a unique look to the American audience. Confident in her own sense of style and beauty, it did not take long for the rest of the world to catch on.

Many assumed Elizabeth was motivated to wear caftans in an attempt to conceal weight gain. However, this could not be further from the truth (even Richard Burton asserted this conjecture as “bullocks”)…” Read more about Elizabeth Taylor here.

Jennifer Coolidge may not be Elizabeth Taylor but she is beautiful, imperfect and we love her.  She is not 50 but 60ish and still, as a central character of White Lotus she is beyond relevant. She understands her limitations in life versus her youthful assistant Haley Lu Richards and  her adventurous spirit is undaunted until she miscalculates and POOF — we will miss her.

Jennifer wears dresses, wild empire waists dresses with big cleavage affects, flowy plunging decollete Kaftans, verging on the Moo Moos of yore. Crazy prints and floral colors are her main stay. Hard to say if this fashion trend will catch on but perhaps. I mean the Beverly Hills house wives seem to love them. Here’s two great videos with Coolidge that are mesmerizing. Let’s look at these and then if your in the mood we have some Coolidge style White Lotus Kaftan fashion finds for you.
