Celebrity sparkle fashions


Anne Hathaway at the 2011 Golden Globe Awards

I love all those red carpet fancy gowns with

Let's add in some extra accessories
that might make them even better -
if that's possible!!

Ms. Hathaway's dress is really all the jewelry she needs, as the dress IS the jewelry!
However, I think these edgy earrings would add a fun
touch to the glitzy fashion -
what do you think?

sterling silver mod earrings $80.00

Next is Cate Blanchett:

Ms. Blanchett's gown is very tastefully done -
I love the sheer but not see-thru illusion.
Wouldn't these lace peep toe shoes look gorgeous with it?

champagne lace heels $63.00

Here's another gown where the gown itself 
is all the jewelry needed!

Nicole Kidman, found on

I am not so fond of the bra-look bodice,
but I love the rest of this beaded column dress!

I think these sling back heels, with a touch of neutral
color, would look pretty peeking out 
from underneath Ms. Kidman's gown
to accentuate all that gorgeous beading:

Carlos Santana sling back snakeskin leather heels $19.00

Nina Dobrev sparkles in this dress:

Her lacy diamond earrings are perfect.
I hate how her shoes don't fit!!
Plus, in the 1st photo, they appear to be an odd yellowish color.  I think these 1980's vintage shoes would compliment her ensemble better:

1980s satin shoes with beaded flower spray accent $4.00
- no that's not a typo! But these vintage shoes need a little work on them.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again -
Catherine Zeta-Jones is a beautiful woman
who dresses in beautiful clothes!

I think this is a fairy-tale dress!
Wouldn't these be fun,
peeking out from under her gown every-so-often?

gold studded and blue 3inch heels $50.00

Next we have Taylor Swift wearing golden sparkles -

I think the neck-arm area is a bit too bare.
It looks as if Ms. Swift's gown is being pulled down...

She needs this airy beaded necklace!

moonlight and lace beaded collar pdf for $5.00

Not only do I think it would compliment 
and improve Ms. Swift's ensemble,
this is for a pattern that you can bead yourself!
So, you could change the color or shape of the beads
to fit your outfit!

Gillian Anderson found on

Ms. Anderson's dress has a lot going for it,
but I think she has missed the mark with her accessories.

I think she needs a statement necklace to offset the subtle fabric design and simple lines of this dress.

golden cluster crystal necklace $24.00

I think this stunning statement necklace would really bring out the gold tones from her gown.
What do you think?

I also like this bold Art Deco style necklace:

Art Deco style metalwork necklace $14.00

The soft burnished metal in this piece would not overwhelm
her gown's subtle gold fabric.

Let's add to Ms. Anderson's ensemble a pair of
vintage 1980's gold lame brocade shoes
by Party Line.

Party Line vintage 1980's pumps $48.00

Let's finish our blog today with a movie screen 
and TV actress and Broadway play icon -
Helen Mirren

'Older' actresses many times are tempted to dress younger than their age, and it is not becoming.
I think Ms. Mirren has really hit the mark 
with this beautiful gown. 
It is suitable for an 'older' woman, 
and she wears it with class.
Her diamond necklace doesn't overwhelm the dress, 
and indeed it accents the lovely lace on her shoulders.

What can we improve on?
How about this lovely bracelet -

tulle and rhinestone crystal cuff $150.00

I like it that is is a bit bigger than the one she is wearing.
And of course the shoes...

satin and tulle rhinestone accented peep toe platforms $100.00

I like the added rhinestone and tulle embellishments.
I believe these are custom made,
so Ms. Mirren could have them dyed a shade more
'golden champagne'.

That's it for today!
I hope you have enjoyed all my 'fashion' blogs!
