Emerald City

Tuesday, March 1, 2011

Emerald was the color for awards season - first the gowns of the Golden Globes, now the gorgeous jewels of the Oscars. From light and ripe to straight up shamrock, the stars paired their gowns with unexpected grassy gems, creating a fresh, modern look that dazzled on the red carpet.




Create your own red carpet worthy look with these glorious greens...
Clockwise from top left:

Quick! You're trapped in a glass room loosing oxygen by the second and the only way to survive is to pick one of the above - which do you choose?? (Come on, it's to save your life!)

P.S. My sincerest apologies for being a bad blogger friend lately, things are crazier than expected. I miss you all and can't wait to catch up. Special thanks to Johanna & Diana for the features last week, if you visited via them, welcome and thanks for stopping in! I promise I'll swing by and say hello as soon as I get caught up with life!

  1. yes! i was so intrigued by all the green accents, i wasn't expecting them! (although i didn't think amy needed a necklace at ALL with that particular dress).

  2. I agree Diane! I loved the necklace itself but felt it was unnecessary with the high neckline on the dress. I think earrings would have been a better choice but, to each her own :)

    I have to say I loved Amy Adams' necklace and dress but just not together.

  9. I agree about Amy not needing a necklace with that dress. I also wonder how amazing she would have looked if that dress was in emerald green instead!

  10. I noticed it too and everybody looked so classy. Did you see Gwyneth? I really though her dress was the prettiest.

  11. One of my favorite colors so I'm happy to see it all around!!
    Here at the photo, other than the adorable Reese, I'm afraid these lovely jewels just doesn't work!! Especially Amy Adams' picks which are all great but just doesn't seem to be connected even if you're trying really hard...
