Stella McCartney's nude lace dress has been doing the rounds on the red carpet of late. Helena Christensen and Sarah Jesscia Parker are the latest two stars to don the frock for high profile events. But both ladies styled the dress in entirely individual ways, working it to their respective signature styles to a T.
Sarah Jessica Parker wore the cocktail dress for Bravo's Upfront party at Skylight studios in New York on 10th March. The Sex and the City fashionista added a whole heap of beads plus a multi-chain bracelet to the dress which she topped off with an off-white blazer. Though the look was all pale colours she added emphasis with black heels and slouchy black bag.
Helena Christensen styled the dress more simply, teaming it with a peach-coloured chain-handled bag. She added a pop of colour with a pair of ruby-red round-toed shoes with ankle strap detail.
If you're working a nude dress, take beauty notes from these two stylistas as it's an easy look to get wrong. Don't be shy of the blusher and emphasise your eyes with plenty of liner or a little smoky shadow for evening.
