Chi Chi Bosworth, 58, is known for her great smile and laid-back nature. But when it comes to her style, the Roland Park community volunteer likes "a little tension." "I like leather and lace, tough and tender; a denim jacket with nice clothes or a puffer jacket with an evening dress." The contrasting combination made Bosworth a standout at the Chris Benz cocktail party/trunk show at Ruth Shaw. She paired a white cotton pirate-sleeved Worth blouse with a pair of Black Watch plaid modified flair pants -- also by Worth -- which featured a cargo pocket on one leg. Her rhinestone-buckle brown leather belt was a purchase from the Ralph Lauren in Washington. She bought her black leather pointy-toe Gucci ankle boots years ago. She picked up her Cartier Pasha watch at a jewelry store in Montreal, her antique coin and gold earrings at Dress Code by Gita and her cognac crocodile Nancy Gonzalez bag at a shop in Aspen, Colo.
