At the London premiere of One Day, Anne Hathaway pulled off yet another classic look in a lace capsleeve Alexander McQueen dress. It can be challenging to accessorize lace and most tend to go the safe route with pearls. Which looks great of course but I love Anne’s choice of using bold bangles to compliment her look.
She used bangles in gold hues which also matched nicely with her McQueen tan pumps and ivory & gold clutch. Her diamond stud earrings helped add a little sparkle to the look. Anne’s studs are quite large, so if you’re not ready to make the financial plunge to diamonds you can always replicate the look with CZs.
I have to say, Anne always manages to put together classy looks which is a nice change to see in such a young actress. Props to you Anne!
I’m a sucker for romance. Who isn’t, really? So I have been eagerly anticipating the premiere of the movie One Day starting the lovely Anne Hathaway and the charming Jim Sturgess. The movie, based on the international best-selling novel by David Nichols, spans a 20 year friendship between the two lead characters Emma and Dexter. The two get together once a year since the day they met in 1988.
As we thought it might be, The Kings Speech was the big winner on Oscar night. I think that war-era femininity might be responsible for the resurgence in lace this year, such as on Mila Kunis, Amanda Seyfried, Madonna at the after-party and, most notably, Scarlett Johansson who just. Looked. Amazing. I know some in the blogosphere are torn about this one, but I loved it. Despite all the yelling paparazzi, screaming fans and flashing cameras, Scarlett somehow always manages to look totally relaxed on the red carpet, like she was born to be there.
Despite The King’s Speech impressive influence, The Black Swan seemed to make the biggest fashion-impression this year – and I’m holding it responsible for the reserved palate of colors we saw. Other than a few ladies in red (Sandra Bullock, we love you!), it seemed like everyone was in variations of black/grey or white/beige. Not only that, did you notice a number of gowns were decked out in feathers and feathery fabrics (Hilary Swank, Naomi Watts, Sharon Stone, Halle Berry and others).
For the most part, jewelry was kept simple and classic, with a perfect pair of diamond studs appearing over and over. It’s a good reminder that when you’ve got fancy fabrics or necklines going on, it’s wise to let your jewelry be an accessory, not a distraction. And you can never, ever go wrong with a pair of diamond studs.
One noteworthy jewelry statement was made by hostess Anne Hathaway, who let her baubles match her bubbly personality with an attention-grabbing cocktail ring. I found 5-carat rock version for an easy $45. Nothing will make you feel more outrageously glamorous for a better price.
Two days left until we stare at our TV screens to watch the beautiful people walk down the red carpet. Until then, our eyes have been glued to our Twitter feed to find out all the latest news about the Oscars.
