Rashida Jones’s Style Evolution, From Printed Tunics to Couture Gowns

Known for her dry, comedic acting skills on hit TV series Parks and Recreation, The Office, and Angie Tribeca, Rashida Jones has made a name for herself in Hollywood aside from that of her music mogul father, Quincy Jones. Naturally, growing up in the limelight, Jones has also grown to become a style favorite on the red carpet. Her styles have ranged from office modest to fabulous and style-saavy since she began her acting career many years ago. One moment she could be pictured wearing a fabulous Alberta Ferretti gown on the red carpet while the next she’s keeping it simplistic in a minidress while walking the Los Angeles streets. She has proven herself to be more than just a actor–she’s the brainy, funny girl who can play around with fashion and become anyone’s imagined best friend effortlessly. Ahead, take a look back at Jones’s road from pastel printed sundress to to gorgeous couture gowns.
