Julia Roberts Eats, Prays & Loves Her Bling

As Julia Roberts’ Eat, Pray, Love hits the theaters, she has been traveling to promote her movie from America all the way to the Far East in Japan. She was the first actress to appear in Vogue, is one of the highest paid actresses of all time, has been named one of People magazine’s “50 Most Beautiful People in the World” eleven times and is an Academy award winner. Well, I’m sure there isn’t anything else left on her “to do before 40” list.

And If I was in her shoes I wouldn’t need to adopt power dressing at all. But that is what the Mona Lisa Smile actress did for the New York Premiere of her latest chick flick.

She sported a men’s-wear inspired black Stella McCartney blazer but gave it a sexy twist by combining it with a teeny pair of black tailored mini shorts by Diane von Furstenberg that exposed all 88 inches (or 82 rather) of her famous long legs. Had she removed her blazer though we would have had reruns of her micro-short body-con dress in Pretty Woman.

The Tokyo press conference however was a fashion debacle of sorts as she went from sexy to saggy and her stylist should be given a good knock on the head! Yes, the multicolored floral print of her green Dries Van Noten Fall 2010 dress seemed sort of Asian but the old-lady fit did absolutely nada for her figure.

I do not even want to comment about her out-of-place green Celine ankle strap wedges. But from her neck up, Julia actually looked pretty stunning thanks to a pair of gold and diamond, tear drop earrings by Jamie Wolf which shows that the actress’ jewelry style is still intact.

The same goes for her colorful Indian-inspired jewelry by Me&Ro at the New York Premiere comprising of an ink-blue lapis bead bracelet, matching lotus lapis earrings and a gold necklace with dangling trinkets which wasn’t on her neck but innovatively wrapped around her wrist. Using your necklace as a bracelet is in fact a fun, stylish and effortless method to give off the illusion of many bangles.

Her jewelry provided a colorful touch to her all-black ensemble and she seemed to be in total bliss. Well Julia darling, we are totally eating up your new movie, praying for you not to repeat any ancient looks but absolutely loving your mystical jewelry!

Shine like Cameron Diaz

In our books, stealing is permitted only for one thing. CELEBRITY LOOKS of course! Do you want to go for that hot diva look that says you rule the red carpet? Let’s steal Cameron Diaz’s wardrobe for some inspiration now shall we? Tom Cruise and Cameron have reunited in action comedy, Knight and Day after Vanilla Sky and Cameron’s look for the movie’s premiere in Seville, Spain, serves as the perfect fashion recipe for all the diva-wannabes out there. It takes two to tango and only an additional step to shine like a Hollywood star:

Step 1: Become a black beauty

Choose a sexy black outfit with some shine and the perfect pumps. Cameron rocked an off-the-shoulder draped Lanvin Spring 2010 mini dress that had a belt detail, paired with a hot pair of Lanvin pump heels. The length need not be as short as Cameron’s but it solely depends on what complements your body type. Make sure it’s not too short that you’re not even able to sit comfortably in public without feeling like a conscious crouching tiger or an unhidden dragon for that matter. Simultaneously if the dress is too long you may end up looking like Morticia Addams from the Addams family which is not necessarily a good thing.

Step 2: Accessorize with ice for spice

It goes without saying that the ice/jewelry that you choose is what will spice up your outfit. The advantage of wearing black garb is that jewelry of almost any color and gemstone goes well with it, but this is the downside as well as the possibilities are simply endless and you may spend long hours wondering what bling would bring it. But the stars do shed some light here on how to sparkle like one. The secret behind a diva’s spark is to wear something out of the ordinary. Think outside the box. It may also be helpful to think big! Bold pieces certainly magnify your celebrity presence such as a cubic zirconia cocktail ring or large silver earrings.

Cameron accessorized with jewelry from House of Lavande and Falon which included a pair of big gold cabochon earrings with turquoise stones that really brought out her eyes and a thick colorful textured Swarovzski crystal cuff bracelet. But remember the golden rule: If you wear big earrings, cut out the neck wear & vice versa. It is imperative to add a unique personal touch to your jewelry too. Cameron’s playful personality shined through her chic black look via an unusual but funky pair of gold anklets.

Step 3: Classy Hairdo & Crimson Make-up

Usually, celebrities opt for a hair updo on the red carpet because one, that is simply the age-old norm and two, it gives maximum exposure to those super-sized earrings! But hey, you could always let your hair down for the after party. Cameron wore her messy trademark updo. Last but not the least, be armed with some scarlet lipstick to get that true Hollywood chic like Cameron to complete the look. And it could be pink-red, cherry or maroon if you have a tan.

So there you have it, the three fashion steps to red-carpet success. Ladies, it’s SHOWTIME!
