Shala Monroque looked incredibly chic whilst attending the Whitney Art Party: ‘The Groundbreakers’, in New York City last night as honorary co-chair.

The impeccably well-dressed socialite selected this matador-esqe Jason Wu Fall 2011 ensemble.

On some this may have come off a tad costumey, but Shala has a great knowledge of fashion so she had the confidence and effortlessness to pull off this look.

Her ensemble included a black cropped jacket embellished with rich rhinestones, which she paired with black pants and a white blouse with a black ribbon necktie.

Like all worthy socialite’s she accessorized perfectly with a gold cuff and a burgundy clutch.
