I didn’t think it was possible that I could love a gown more than Lupita’s caped red gown at the Golden Globes, but girlfriend STOLE the show AGAIN in a STUNNING custom pale blue pleated dress by Prada. I’m telling you that this photo does not even do it justice. It was even more gorgeous live on the red carpet! During an interview, she shared that she chose the blue color because it reminded her of her hometown of Nairobi. So my friends…forget baby blue and pale blue…this color now goes by “Nairobi Blue”! Lupita hands down got my vote for best dressed of the evening.

And then there were the ladies in gold & white. Clearly I have a thing for caped gowns because I seriously die for Kelly Osbourne and Kate Hudson’s caped numbers. These two were a VERY close runner up for me as I LOVED them both. I don’t know if I’ve ever seen either of them looking more gorgeous. SO glamorous and old Hollywood! Angelina Jolie could probably show up in a paper bag and still look beyond beautiful, but she was radiant & glowing in her golden gown.


Red Carpet Inspired Daytime Look

Clockwise: Giupure Lace Top, Structured Frill Mini Skirt, Mini City Bag w/ Zip Detail, Neoprene Dress, Leather Court Shoe w/ Bow, Long Sleeve Dress w/ Buttons, Blue/Gold Leather Sandal, Justfab “Takeout” Bucket Bag

Inspired by these lovely ladies, I rounded up a few pieces that I’d like to incorporate into my everyday wardrobe…in Nairobi blue & white, of course! In fact, I may have already scooped up one or two of these pieces! Also, be sure and check back later as I will be updating this post with my “red carpet inspired everyday look” using items from my own closet!

      Yeah…one of the downfalls of taking all of your pics with a tripod & remote is hiding your remote (er, arm) behind you. Limbs are one of the very few things I don’t photoshop out. LOL.

    Hi. Would you mind telling me where you got this solid white (I think it is white) dress? Who makes it? It looks so good on you! I think you said that it was something already in your closet. But hoping maybe it is still available?

      It is by ASOS. I bought it over a year ago so sold out but they do bring stuff back and have similar styles so you should definitely check them out!
