Green With Envy
The Emmy’s came. The Emmy’s went. But the fashion stuck! And the look of the night, in my humble opinion, went to the ever outspoken Shailene Woodley. Everyone knows Shailene; she’s an industry fave. She even starred alongside Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon in HBO’s most recent and wildly popular miniseries, Big Little Liars. But you knew that. Right? RIGHT?!? I mean, who hasn’t seen this drama! In fact, the show made such an impression on the American public, that it snagged a total of EIGHT Emmy’s! And while I would have loved to see my girl, Shailene, take home an Emmy for herself, I’ll have to settle for the fact that she scored a nomination for Best Supporting Actress in a Miniseries and that the show as a whole took home some pretty impressive awards. Girl power right there, ladies!
So before I got carried away with one of my all-time favorite shows- oh, and dear HBO, please make a second season; pleeeeease- I was talking about Shailene Woodley’s look of the night. And boy was it a look! She made her red carpet debut in a custom, velvet dress by Ralph Lauren in the most stunning shade of emerald green you ever did see. And with its plunging neckline and criss-cross back she managed to give off this oh so effortlessly chic vibe that only celebrities of her status can pull off! Ooooh and get this- she went blond, people. Like really, really blond! I’m talking Nicole and Reese level blonde! And it worked SO well! The face framing tendrils, the low slung ponytail, the sultry eye makeup… gosh I couldn’t stop staring and I don’t think anyone else could either. She rounded out her look with glittering gold Stuart Weitzman heels and dazzling Alexis Bittar jewels. Shailene, I don’t think anyone expected this look from you, but WOWZA- it was definitely something we’d love to see more of!
The key word here is effortless. And as a nurse, I know that means everything to you. After all, who wouldn’t want to wake up in the morning, throw on a pair of scrubs and look effortlessly chic?? Pick me, pick me!! Here’s what we’re going to do to make that happen- we’re going to copy Shailene Woodley’s Emmy’s look to a tee. Emerald green getup? Check. By way of the Dickies Extreme Stretch Mock Wrap top in Hunter. Perfect do? Check. Simply pull your hair into a middle parted, low pony and for added measure feel free to leave those very front, face framing pieces of hair, hanging loose. That’s the look in a nutshell. Want to really go for it? See if you have time for a cool, smokey eye. The end. Dunzo. Effortless. And CHIC! Just like Shailene.
