Last night when I was looking for these pictures, I found many comments on one website saying how people thought she was annoying, extremely skinny, and how this gown makes her look shapeless. I think this dress was so radiant on her, I think it might tie for second place (with Mila Kunis' McQueen gown). I love how it tiers down and makes her look like she's glowing.
Channeling the bright color trend for the summer, Jennifer Lawrence wore this hot pink number and rocked it. I like the complicated straps on her shoulders and the velvet (I'm pretty sure it's velvet) bow on the waist pulls the look together.
While I liked the dress, I couldn't stop looking at her eyes because she just looked crazy! (Here are some examples: 1, 2, 3) Her makeup was too intense for this dress so maybe that's why she wanted her eyes to look bigger.
I love the color of this dress and I usually love Marchesa's gown designs, but this just looked unfinished and messy. The lace was just too close together and kind of just random. The rest of her look looked fabulous, though!
I looked everywhere and could not find the designers of these dresses, so if anyone could tell me that would be great. Anyway, Valerie Bertenelli looks amazing for 50 in the red strapless gown; Wendie Malick is 60 (who would've guessed!) and she looks absolutely stunning in the midnight blue gown; Jane Leeves is the youngest of the three (she's 49) and she looked so youthful but elegant in the sparkly light to dark gown.
Again, I looked everywhere for the designer of this dress and I could not find who it was, so if anyone could tell me, that would be great. This dress is on my worst dressed of the night. The two different fabrics on the dress just doesn't look right, the way it hits her does not flatter her at all, and her makeup was just too much and made her look old. The dress just kind of looks like a little kid's "dress up" dress.
Even with the many takes and how to get her look 's on the internet, I decided to still go on with my desire to make this post. I watched Factory Girl for the first time last week (I know, I know!), even though it came out 5 years ago, and I fell in love with the wardrobe Sienna Miller had to portray Edie Sedgwick. Before watching this, I knew a lot about the real Edie Sedgwick's style but I didn't realize how much of her style still lives on, even 40 years after her death.
When she was discovered by Andy Warhol, she had a style never seen before and that style continued with her until her death. She is known for her huge chandelier earrings, black tights, shirts worn as dresses, big eyelashes, and black eyeliner.
Edie Sedgwick's wardrobe basics:

Kind-of-Splurge of the week: If you're a fan of The Breakfast Club or just like wearing cool screen print t-shirts, you should check out this 'Anthony Shirt' (as in Anthony Michael Hall in a scene from The Breakfast Club)
If you've been following this blog for sometime, you know I love DIY things so when I stumbled across this DIY article about re-making shirts from the Urban Renewal line from Urban Outfitters, it made me want to do it! Except I wouldn't pay crazy amounts of money for a t-shirt I'm just going to cut up and sew, I'd go to Goodwill or Salvation Army and buy oversized t-shirts.
Over on Elle girl I found a Street-Style Look for less that wasn't quite "less"; who (with limited funds) would spend $68 on a skirt? And even if a quality jacket costs you more money, the red jacket probably won't go with many things in your wardrobe (then again, I guess you could wear it with anything, depending on the color). So here is my own version of the Street-Style look.
Ever been afraid to mix prints? Well here is a fool proof way to look like you didn't get dressed blind.
A couple important things to keep in mind when you're mixing prints is, one: keep within the same color pallet and two: if you have an item that is a small print, mix it with an item with a bigger print.
