Sophia Bush was one of the celebrity guests attending the 3rd Annual Origins Rocks Earth Month Concert, featuring performances from singer/songwriters Gavin DeGraw and Vanessa Carlton, at Webster Hall, New York City on April 18.
The beautiful actress sported a modern chic look from designer Kimberly Ovitz’s Fall 2011 collection.
Her green scoop-neck Macon dress features croc embroidery, cap sleeves and a sexy opened back.
The sporty mini dress felt a little more elegant with the help of the purple Christian Louboutin Bambou Platform Peep Toe pumps and the Dannijo statement necklace.
Soft waves and a bold pink lip color added the final touches.
I’m talking about one of my newest fashion crushes here, as I somehow managed to neglect this category over the past two months. I know that this statement piece gained her first fans quite a few years back, but for me – the subtle jewelry loving type – the transition was a little bit slower.
I started by liking this trend as worn by celebrities on the Red Carpet, when suddenly the statement necklace became a key piece for any respectable fashionista, as the street fashion took a new spin. And as it is easier to admire trends on others, rather than actually giving them a try, another while past between me acknowledging the trend, and me actually feeling comfortable wearing it.
Below you can find a short selection of beautiful necklaces that I would love to wear during Spring or Summer this year, and also my favorite ways of centering an outfit around the jewelry piece.
1. Piperlime – Beaded Statement Necklace in Aqua Green – $24
2. stella & dot – Birds Of Paradise Necklace – $ 133.50 (on sale)
3. Threadsence – Tahitian Goddess Necklace – $22
4. ASOS – Silk Cord and Looped Statement Collar – $32.23
5. stella & dot – Cortez Bib Necklace – $49 (on sale)
Although styling an outfit with a chunky necklace should be fairly simple, considering the infinite options we are given, paying extra attention to details won’t hurt. The right necklace should fall right into place either you are trying to achieve a super casual look, or an extra sophisticated one.
My favorite ways of wearing this jewelry piece :
As she attended the Global Green USA’s 9th Annual Pre-Oscar Party, Sophia Bush was a vision of elegance, stepping on the Green Carpet, full on glamour, in a Dilek Hanif Couture Spring 2011 gown.
The beautiful floor-length silver beaded gown, channeling the 1920s, was styled with an exquisite Amrapali Square Bracelet with colored diamonds and Amrapali earrings.
Rene Caovilla heels and a Judith Leiber clutch, complemented the luxurious look.
Beauty wise, Sophia opted for another touch of elegance, with smooth flowing waves, rosy cheeks and a natural toned make-up. Loving it.
This week, Sophia Bush looked sensational in two very different designs. If I haven’t got the chance to write about the electric blue full length dress, she wore for the L.A. premiere of This Means War, the least I can do now, is point out how wonderful she looked whilst attending the (Belvedere) RED Pre-Grammys Party, rocking a Paule Ka dress.
The black leather belted mini dress, was figure-flattering, feminine, but sexy at the same time, the kind of perfect outfit, to wear at an elegant party. I’m really starting to develop a mild crush on everything leathery …so loving this outfit, doesn’t come as a surprise.
An Edie Parker Edie Confetti clutch, nude Brian Atwood pumps, two amazing Adeler cocktail rings and a pair of Sutra earrings, perfectly accessorized the black dress.
Beauty wise, Sophia kept it simple, sporting a sleek ponytail, glossy lips and metallic eyeshadow.
