Hey, isn't that the frizzy-haired girl who played "Felicity" a decade or so ago? She may be hard to recognize but that's her, all grown up.

Actress Keri Russell may best be known for starring in the college-based television drama, but her effortless, classic sense of style has made her a lasting presence on the fashion scene. She's also had plenty of successful films since her Golden Globe-winning run on "Felicity" in 1998-2002, with starring roles in "August Rush," "Leaves of Grass" and the indie flick "Waitress." Now Russell is back on the small screen and making the media circuit to promote her new role as a Russian sleeper agent in the new 1980s-set FX series "The Americans," scheduled to premiere in early 2013. 

Russell posed during the photo call for her new series at the annual MIPCOM television content market in Cannes, France, wearing crisp white and cool vanilla. She chose a high-collar white blouse with lace insets, creamy cropped slacks and peach peep-toe pumps. It was an outfit befitting the wind-swept beach city.

To get Russell's look, try the Elie Tahari Juliette Long pant in cream for $118.80, the Banana Republic Sloan fit-slim pants in baked sand for $89.50 or the trousers with studded waistband from for $79.90. All are classic, just right for the office, a night out or for taking in the sunset.

The subtle details on Russell's blouse add character to her ensemble. For a similar effect try the embroidered blouse from Zara for $59.90. The peep-toe faux suede pumps from Forever 21 for $26.80 or the Steve Madden Admirre pumps for $99.95 will complement your whites nicely and add a versatile colored heel to your wardrobe.

Happy shopping.
