#7. Nina Dobrev in Donna Karan. LOVE the top of the bodice on this, and the bottom detail is a very interesting use of fabric.

And just because I think she’s so cute and has a great individual aesthetic, Zooey Deschanel in Monique Lhuillier.

Another trend I was loving was the long drop earrings with colored gems that weren’t matchy-matchy to the dresses. Fabulous styling. A lot of the hair needed help. Hard, sharp lines in a dress, opt for a soft updo. Soft and feminine dress, sleek it out a little with some shine and polish. I just don’t like hair down for a formal event. I find it too ‘casual’ unless it’s in a defined style.
