the pale embrace


I am sure all of you watched the Oscars last night, and since then have read hundreds of posts and articles titled "best dressed" or "what were they thinking". This post is dedicated to all of my fellow delicately fair-skinned ladies, who think they could never pull off a pale toned ensemble. Well, apparently we have been proven wrong. After watching the handful of elegant woman adorned in pale purples, pinks, and blues, it is clear that even the fairest of us all can avoid being swallowed by light colors. From Amy Adams, to Anne Hathaway, these women stunned in shades rarely seen on the red carpet. While the cuts and fabrics of their gowns were not all in my top 10, I was most impressed by the bravery in embracing pastels, and the revival of classic glamour. I will definitely be trying to replicate this come spring...
