Twilight’s Ashley Greene: Who Knew Vampires Could Look So Good?

Filed under Celebrities

Ashley GreeneI’ve realized that one pop-culture phenomenon that we’ve never mentioned on StealThisDress! is Twilight. I watched the first movie and really liked it. But I’m definitely not one of those obsessed fans. When I read on Perez about how the cast was once again mobbed by hysterical teenyboppers or the latest speculation about the romance between Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, I usually zone out. The one Twilight star that I do love, though, is Ashley Greene.

A combination of white, cream and champagne tones is a beautiful choices for brunettes or ladies with a darker complexion. There is something undeniably angelic about this combination. If you choose to wear these colors, you gotta accessorize your outfit with gold jewelry. That’s just an unwritten law, in my opinion. If you want to literally glow, this is the color palette you should be working with.

As for Ashley Greene, talk about stunning natural beauty! I really hope she gets more screen-time in the rest of the Twilight series.

I love purple. It doesn’t surprise me at all that it used to be considered the color of royalty in the old world.

Looking through pictures of Carolina Herrera’s fall 2009 ready-to-wear show, my favorite outfit was, hands down, the one pictured here. How gorgeous is that shade of purple? I think that this is a perfect outfit for a holiday party, maybe even with a sleeveless dress as pictured below.

Wear the dress with black footed tights and jeweled flats if you want to channel the look that went down the runway at the Carolina Herrera show. If you want to give it your own twist, try jeweled pumps, closed or peep toe.

For your handbag, choose a clutch or shoulder bag in a different shade of purple for that “different yet harmonious” look. Keep the jewelry to a minimum since this look already contains plenty of jewels.

Nothing Says Happy New Year Like Sequins and Glitter

It’s only December 1st and I’m already getting super excited about all kinds of festive outfits for Christmas and New Year’s parties. I love this time of year because sequins, glitter, rhinestones and anything else that sparkles and shines is a must-have trend. Just remember to not wear a lot of sparkly pieces together at once–you want to dance under a disco ball, not look like one!
