Frock Fridays - Hollywood Glam

As usual, there was a lot of flesh on display at the Grammys this year (ahem, Rihanna and Fergie - and you, too, Jessie J, at the Brits earlier this week) and I do generally agree that you have every right to show off what your mother gave you and/or what you bought with your hard-earned millions.  However, I have to admit that I preferred some of the more demure styles on the red carpet...

If I were to be invited to the Oscars - well, first of all, it would probably be on the arm of Eddie Redmayne.  (What?  I have a weakness for gingers.  Besides, he went to Eton and studied History of Art at Cambridge, which means he's totally my type.  Duh.)  But, second of all, I'd definitely be jumping on this less-is-more fashion bandwagon.

[ eyes / mascara / lips / nails / perfume / dress / earrings / bracelet / ring / clutch / shoes ]

Okay, so it's not comprehensively a less-is-more approach.  But if Harry Winston wants to lend me an entire suite of diamonds, who am I to say no?  The make-up would have to be very old-Hollywood glam, with a subtle eye and red lips, and, naturally, I'd be wearing Chanel No. 5.  I never know what shoes to pair with a long gown, but I think that these peep-toe pumps have the perfect amount of sparkle to creep from beneath the hem of the dress.  The clasp of the clutch tips it just onto the fun side of necessary.  And the frock is, of course, DVF - who else could make a simple wrap dress appear to be so royal?
