if I was a Rich Girl ...

The May blogging challenge is more of a challenge than I first thought. I have missed a day or two, so the plan is to carry on and post as often as possible this month. This is another celeb inspired post with a look that excites me very much. 
It was the Met Ball Gala the other night at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art. This is a big night for fashion and the theme of the evening was 'Punk:Chaos To Couture'. It was a red carpet full of stars, from Rita Ora to Ann Wintour. There were fashion hits and one too many fashion misses. It was Nicole Richie that stole the show for me. I'm a big fan of Nicole Richie and her style, and she did not disapoint that evening. Nicole modelled her new silver/grey short hair do, her look was striking and glamorous. The theme was not wasted on her. I loved this look, from the hair, make up, dress and spiked accessories. I'm sure not everyone would agree that this was a fashion hit, but for me she wins best dressed!

 head to toe Stunning!

Would you ever go short and silver?

Get the look. Model Roby Rose. Miley Cyrus and Cruella DeVil (why not?)

Nicole posted a sneaky pic before the event of her nails against her gorgeous detailed dress on instagram. Below, I have chosen some rings and nail polish so we can create the look ourselves. Nicole's deep red and gold half-moon manicure was created by Kimmie Kyees.
 I would love to try this on my own nails, so I will purchasing a gold nail pen soon. All the rings I have chosen are from the wonderful on-line boutique Dixi, 'a treasure trove for vintage and modern jewellery'. :)

NAIL ART PEN IN FOOLS GOLD /  Generation Q: Nail Varnish in Charisma
DIXI Jewellery 

Moonrock Ring £8 / Talisse Arrow Point Ring £6 

Livia Geometric Stacked Ring £6 / Idah Moonstone Rings £12

Nicole wore Topshop Couture, doesn't that just sound beautiful?. The long white embellished dress looked perfect on her petite frame. I just adored everything about the dress. It reminded me of a dress I always seem to click on when on the Topshop site. This dress has embellishment detail on the sleeves and neckline just like the dress Nicole wore. I have picked a studded hard clutch from Topshop to add that punk feel. I think all that is needed is a bold dark lip colour and the overall look would be very Nicole-esque.

I hope you have enjoyed my post. I was so excited when I saw what Nicole wore, I really wanted to do a post about it. I may do my first ootd post soon. eeeek!

    10. I think Anne Hathaway was my best dressed, I LOVED her hair, and her dress was just right for the occasion.

      I loved what Nicole Richie was wearing too though. Not 100% convinced on the hair, but she certainly pulled it off!


    11. Wonderfully comprehensive post Christina, beautiful and original, well done! Following now on GFC and Bloglovin :) x0


    12. I adore the silver hair colour but think it would make me look too washed out.
      Would love you to check out my latest outfit post :)

    13. Great post! I loved Nicole's outfit, but wasn't sure about her hair! I know a lot of kpop guys go that route with their hair color though

    14. She looks great, I would love to have silver hair but it would destroy my hair and it doesn't suit my type :/
