girl crush: Carey Mulligan

We fell in love with this charming Twiggy look-a-like the moment we saw her in An Education. Although she has the unassuming looks of a naïve waif, her complex, understated performance packed a punch and left us thinking, Who is this girl? She took even darker turns in Drive and Shame, and managed to hold her own against two powerful leading men. This fall, she’s at it again with Leonardo DiCaprio, this time as one of our favorite literary characters, Daisy Buchanan, in The Great Gatsby – and we’re sure she won’t disappoint.

 

Who’s your girl crush?

 

 

 

Hello, Sweetheart

As the stars walked the Red Carpet some looks were right on and others, well…. not so much.  Three of my favorite dresses were all different with one common thread: the ultra-feminine, sweetheart neckline.  This super-girly cut really shows off your collar bones & in my opinion, collar bones are sexy (notice there’s no need for necklaces with these gowns)!  Now I know Miley Cyrus received some “flack” for her champagne Jenny Packham gown, but this young & fresh number is just perfect for her. Let’s be honest, if any of us could wear it, we would–she looked incredible! On the other end of the color spectrum was Carey Mulligan’s Swarovski-encrusted Prada gown. The sweetheart neckline is perfectly complimented by her pixie cut and chandelier earrings. Essentially, the look is girly meets edgy. My personal favorite who got it all right: Rachel McAdams. She had me at The Notebook and this look is a far cry from her breakout role in Mean Girls. Her makeup is  impeccable & her watercolor-organza Elie Saab gown is just incredibly romantic and whimsical.  Who were your favorites?
