blake and marchesa are always a killer combination
at the 2011 national board of review of motion pictures gala in nyc earlier this week, blake lively donned a gawjus spring 2011 marchesa cocktail dress. this is one of the most interesting dresses i have seen on the red carpet in a while. it is a step away from the regular chiffons, silks and crepes.
the dress is made of suedette with a laser-cut motif on the neck, the same laser-cut detailing appears on the gathered, ruffled statement shoulders. this color is absolutely scrumptious. there is nothing as rich as a deep shade of purple. it adds an instant element of chic sophistication to anything – whether it’s clothes, accessories or shoes.
i am in love with the idea of a suedette dress, it looks/ feels gorgeous and fits well.
how MUCH do we love the turquoise jewels? purple attire with turquoise jewelry is tried and tested and oh-so-divine. the two colors compliment each other perfectly and in this case add a dash of youth to an otherwise seriously sophisticated dress. the trademark flawless make-up and 1000watt smile finish off this magnifique look.
