If you are looking for an ultra-feminine, pretty look that has just a hint of sex appeal, take inspiration from the gorgeous Mila Kunis in Elie Saab at this year's Oscars. Mila wore a lace and chiffon gown that was all about playing up the female charms. The lavender color was refreshing and effortless on the red carpet and simple dazzling details - an earring and single bangle - pulled it all together. A python clutch brought a modern, young vibe to the overall classy look.
To get this look for an event this Spring (thinking a beach wedding, bridal/baby shower or graduation), look for a dress in an effortless chiffon or lace fabric - the thiner and softer the material the better! This dress should let you wear it, rather than it wearing you - get what I'm saying? We like this J. Crew chiffon tiered dress - the color is just right and the chiffon has a light and airy quality. The low v-neck line and empire-like waist also mimics Mila's silloutte in an appropriate way!
Accessorize with crystal jewelry that has a feminine and heirloom quality and add just a touch of python for the edge - we love these "dressy" flip flops and crystal jewelry from Banana Republic!
