peachy keen celebrity fashions

It's time for another Fashion Show
with Celebrity fashions 
featuring 'peachy-keen' colored accessories
that might have made them even more stunning!

Angelina Jolie
found on blognews.am.com

You really can't tell what's under that beautiful draped fabric,
but I think these would be super!
They have a fine gold glitter front, with gold sky-high heels and a hand-painted sole!

For some added interest, wouldn't these look beautiful on her ears, as a compliment to her dress?

Next up is an actress that played it 'minimal' with her jewelry.
That is, if you can call thousands of dollars of diamonds minimal...

Jessica Alba at the Golden Globe Awards

I really enjoy the 'furry' clutch she is carrying.
It adds a kick of fun!
Wouldn't this look beautiful on her other wrist?

and this around her neck?

2009 Bloom Winner hand beaded necklace for $720.00
found at mikelle.etsy.com

or perhaps this?

These shoes would add a little more of the funky that Ms. Alba started with her unique clutch:

vintage 1950s confetti print shoes $78.00
made for Nordstrom and found at zestvintage.etsy.com

Next up is the beautiful Jennifer Hudson -

I find the squished boob show a bit distracting 
from the rest of her dress,
how about you?
Remove some of the push-up pads from her foundations, 
and try adding this as a beautiful feature necklace:

 handmade lace jewelry,
using a thousands of years-old technique, passed down from generation to generation.

The photo doesn't do justice to the beautiful threads used in this necklace!

This next ensemble is just beautiful -

Ginnifer Goodwin at the Emmy Awards, 2012
found on www.douxrousse.blogspot.com

The shoes are perfectly matched, and so is the belt.
The only thing I might change is to remove the pave diamond ring,
it just looks too big and clunky for the delicateness of the lace 
on the dress and her petite frame.
How about this one instead?

18k gold with diamonds and aquamarine ring
sold at netawolpe.etsy.com

Next is a beautiful curvy actress -

Danielle Brooks at the 2013 Primetime Emmy Awards
found on customcelebritydresses.com

Ms. Brooks has chosen very well.
The simple lines of the dress show off her curves,
rather than emphasize them in a negative way
or trying to hide under layers of fabric.

Because of the rich skin tone she has, I think she
could easily wear this as an attention-getting accent:

An actress that consistently hits the mark with her fashion-sense:
Catherine Zeta-Jones.

Ms. Zeta-Jones has a beautiful figure and a presence
that compliments anything she wears,
as shown in the above photo.
With a 'busy' pattern at the top, 
you don't want to wear 'busy' jewelry.
I can't tell what her footwear is, but these would look fantastic:

Next is a lovely lace overlay dress
worn by Karen Fairchild at the CMA awards, 2013:

In my opinion, the dress is beautiful and fits her figure great.
she really needs some accessories to prevent a bit of boredom here.
Perhaps this?

salmon bib statement necklace for $6.71 (no, that isn't a typo!)
for sale at EllenJewelry.etsy.com

The 'bumpy' texture of each stone drop mimics the lace in her dress
without overwhelming you with extras that keep your eyes busy. 
The gold accents around each stone is just enough.

I like these peachy nude suede heels for her also:
nude suede heels for $73.00
custom made at ChristyNgShoes.etsy.com

They really bring out the undertones of her lace dress.
Nice accent!

Carrie Underwood wears a super flirty short cocktail dress:

An important part of Ms. Underwood's ensemble
is her marvelous smile.
Isn't it nice to see someone who genuinely looks 
like they are having fun?
With the fun 'glitter' confetti accents on her dress, you want to keep the accessories at a minimum.
However, wouldn't this look great -

nail polish duo by GlitterfiedNails.etsy.com

This nail polish duo comes with a Gold polish you can wear alone,
or you can add the second polish on top. It is a clear lacquer with gold confetti in it.
Subtle enough, but a cute addition to this outfit!

I will finish today with one of my favorite actresses:

Katherine Heigl at the Screen Actor's Guild Awards

Ms. Heigl seems to be the actress the critics love to hate.
I don't agree, and neither does my husband!
If you stayed away from 'Mrs. Pollifax - Spy' because of the critics pan of it, go back and watch it!
Really, any of the movies that the critics have said 'nay' to,
you will probably want to go back and check them all out!
The lovely saturated shade of orange in Ms. Heigl's dress
does not compete with her hair.
I'm glad she added the sparkle strap on the left.
I think some fun nail polish could also compliment this look -

First, the name of this polish is so fun -
'Orange You Glad I Didn't Say Banana'
hee hee
My reasons for choosing this shade is
1. There is glitter in it, to compliment her sparkle strap.
2. The polish is a shade lighter than her dress,
so her fingers don't disappear!

I like these vintage beaded shoes:
1940's beaded brocade pump for $159

They go well with her pearl clutch,
and with the length of the dress would only peek out

Well, that's it for today!
I hope you had fun imagining fashion accessories
and shoes and beads and everything!
