Can you believe it is already 2nd of August today? Me neither! But this is right about that time when I become a little bit sad for the half-gone summer, and a little more excited for the approaching days of September. I don’t know how you feel about it, but I absolutely adore September – and celebrating my birthday at the beginning of Fall has
nothing to do with it.
Before I enter my nostalgic mood – way ahead of schedule – I thought I’d make a small recap of my favorite celebrity off-duty looks today, looks that caught my attention during the hot month of July. I haven’t got the opportunity to write about them yet, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t kept an eye opened.
Be sure to enjoy what’s left of this summer, I know I will! Until my next post, all the love in the world ♥
Michelle Williams is currently promoting My Week With Marilyn in Japan, and today, as she attended a press conference to talk the movie, Michelle looked radiant in Valentino.
Never underestimate the power of a vibrant color.
The watermelon pink tea-length cocktail dress, with a classic silhouette, an asymmetrical neckline and a bow detail on the right shoulder, looked darling paired with nude pumps and minimal jewelry.
Her cute subtle styled pixie cut, together with the pink lipstick and darker shade of nail polish, complemented the look.
As I had highly hoped, Michelle Williams added a bright pop of color to the Red Carpet for the 2012 Academy Awards, by choosing to wear a classic silhouette created by previously worn designer, Louis Vuitton. Despite the sad fact that she didn’t won an Oscar for the impersonation of Marilyn Monroe, her look for the big night glowed on delicacy.
The floor length strapless peplum gown, bright colored in coral, was quietly styled by Michelle, as she added another feminine touch using a jeweled bow detail at the waist.
Forever Mark jewelry and a pink Bottega Veneta Crocodile Knot clutch, complemented the darling look.
Sporting her polished pixie cut and red lips, Michelle signed off on a memorable appearance.
With both the ultra-feminine and bright floral looks covered, what better way to end my short list of 2012 Film Independent Spirit Awards fashion favorites, than by going opposite direction?
As she attended the Santa Monica, California ceremony, Michelle Williams opted to follow the slightly more masculine and conservative trends, and centered her appearance around a Louis Vuitton Pre-Fall 2012 look.
If I don’t usually find myself loving Michelle’s choices, mostly due to her black and white predictable fashion sense, not that there’s anything wrong with it, sometimes, like this time, her quirky style gets to me. The black and navy shorts suit, paired with a simple white shirt, may resemble a boyish uniform all buttoned up, but I find it to be rather sweet and built on a retro vibe.
Michelle’s favorites Fendi Grosgrain Bow-Front pumps, in black, plus the Trau for Forevermark Stackable Diamond rings, accessorized the lovely look.
But my favorite accessory, would have to be the Olympia Le-Tan the Catcher in the Rye embroidered book clutch. Smart choice, huh ? The nerdy me definitely loves everything book related.
Now, I’m hoping Michelle will go bold on color for the big night at the Academy Awards and hopefully, tomorrow, I’ll get to write about that. Fingers crossed for a beautiful Red Carpet.
Blake Lively attended the Jason Wu for Target Private Launch Event on January 26, wearing a modified version of a Jason Wu Spring 2012 look. You might remember this dress, as the original runway version was worn by Michelle Williams, earlier this month, during the Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
I love how Blake accessorized the modified black & white peplum dress, according to her own style, wearing it with a pair of Christian Louboutin Fifi Sequined Leopard Pumps.
Beauty wise, Blake opted for a loose low ponytail and a medium pink lipstick, under a coat of sheer shiny gloss. The attitude says it all, the look was a hit, at least according to my taste, as I really like both versions of the Jason Wu dress.
After a busy couple of days on the Red Carpet at the end of this week, this category is back in business. Now, it’s time to kindly ask you to spare a few seconds of your time and vote for your favorite look this week.
Week 002 – January 2 – January 8, 2012
The Poll has been closed. Thanks for voting.
On January 5, Michelle Williams paid a visit to the Tonight Show studios for a chat with Jay Leno about her latest movie, My Week with Marilyn, the Golden Globe nomination and her latest vacation in Mexico. For this occasion, the beautiful actress wore a Jason Wu Spring 2012 RTW Peplum Dress, and it looked both sweet and chic.
The playful sleeveless peplum dress was paired with the black version of the Fendi Grosgrain Bow-Front Pumps. Michelle made a simplicity statement for this appearance, wearing no jewelry and letting the splattered Swarovski Elements on the dress do all the sparkle.
An orange nail color and the super cute blonde pixie cut finished the look.
I’m just sad I couldn’t find any pictures with Michelle standing as I’m sure the dress would have looked even better, not that I’m complaining. Having the Jason Wu Spring 2012 collection amongst my favorites, I can only hope I’ll get to see more of it this year.
