With this look I wanted to go with something simple but pretty. I’ve been obsessed with Calvin Klein and his sleekness for some time now, especially after this big fashion moment. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t want to have my own “made famous by a dress–Jennifer Lawrence moment” like the one she had back in 2011 at the Academy Awards. So let’s dissect this look, shall we?
My dress is very sleek therefore I wanted to continue the trend throughout my hair. So I decided that nothing is sleeker than board straight hair parted down the middle.
Light, pretty, off-the-runway was my main goal for this look. I used Upside Down Mascara from Sephora for lengthy lashes, SIN from the Naked 2 Palette on my lower lid and a light rosy pink in the crease that looks much like this from MAC. I brushed my lips with this gloss from Lancome and my lids with this artliner.
At first I couldn’t decide if I wanted nude, gold, pink, white, or coral. In the long run I used one of my mom’s favorite called My Boyfriend Scales Walls by OPI. It was a mix between white, grey, and light blue. I received tons of compliments on it.
It’s obvious that my main inspiration was Jennifer Lawrence’s Calvin Klein dress from the Academy Awards but it’s time to talk color. When I went to Promenade fabrics in New Orleans (my all time favorite fabric store) I had no clue what I wanted to make. I had ideas in my mind but I didn’t want to settle until I found the perfect fabric. When I found this Carolina Herrera silk crepe fabric I was in awe. The color was perfect and it reminded me of Emma Stone’s sherbet-hued Calvin Klein gown. Which was a coincidence since I was obsessed with Calvin Klein even at the time. I ended up adding the belt towards the end because I was craving some waist definition.
I was and still am obsessed with this gold Halston Heritage clutch. This clutch brought the outfit to another level and complemented my gold Michael Kors bangle (not pictured but ft. here). The Alice + Olivia shoes were just the cherry on top.
Boys please take note that there is more than just getting dressed that goes into a girl’s look. There’s an intense thought process before. :]
