Jennifer Nettles of the Country music duo Sugarland brought the house down with her performance at the 2011 Kennedy Center Honors Gala Dinner earlier this month. I'm always captivated by her performances -- her voice is ridiculous. Another thing I love about her is her consistent stylish wardrobe! I've seen this sequined jumpsuit by Stella McCartney previously in black on Gwen Stefani and in gold on Iman, but I've yet to love it as much as I do in this stunning taupe shade on Jennifer. Due to the lighter color beneath and black chiffon overlay, the sequin illusion of paint splatters really popped on the plunging v-neck jumpsuit. Her curly bob haircut was both pretty and completely non-distracting from the neckline and structured shoulders.
On Tuesday night CBS aired the prestigious annual Kennedy Center Honors Gala Dinner from Washington, DC. After seeing Anne Hathaway wow in a Giambattista Valli on the red carpet on December 3rd, we finally got to the look she wore for her performance during the gala! Anne took to the stage in a beautiful white and black tulle cap-sleeve lace embroidered gown with grosgrain belt from the Spring/Summer 2012 collection by Oscar de la Renta. I love this on Anne! I know she just left her hair the way it was done for the red carpet, I can't help but wish it had been styled in beautiful pin curls with this gown.
Sarah Jessica Parker and her husband actor Matthew Broderick was among the attendees at this years Kennedy Center Honors this past Sunday night at the Kennedy Center Hall of States in Washington, DC. The "New Year's Eve" actress hit the star-studded red carpet wearing a black organza ballgown from the Fall/Winter 2011 collection by Theyskens' Theory. I like the subtle detail of the buttoned bodice; the full skirt reminds me of the angel tree topper on one of my Christmas trees -- and I mean that as a compliment. I've been less than pleased with SJP's recent looks; she's worn some really great dresses, but over-all she's been less than stellar on the red carpet for me. At the KCH event she was much more polished. For once, her hair was kempt and smooth. I'm normally not a fan of this 'such great heights' style, but I think it was best for this particular gown. Her Fred Leighton diamond earrings are stunning.
It was quite the fête on Saturday night at U.S. Department of State in Washington D.C.; Anne Hathaway and Emily Blunt (pictured with husband John Krasinski) were just a few of the celebrity and public figure attendees at the 2011 Kennedy Center Honors Gala dinner, hosted by United States Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. Anne and Emily celebrated the 2011 honorees, Meryl Streep, Barbara Cook, Yo-Yo Ma, Neil Diamond, and Sonny Rollins at the red carpet dinner, both wearing gowns by Giambattista Valli. With a side-parted curled up-'do, Emily showed off the asymmetric cap-sleeve neckline on her vibrant berry gown from the Pre-Fall 2011 collection. I'm head-over-heels for the color of this dress, putting aside the fact that it's gorgeous, it also showcases the modern design. I only wish her black long evening bag wasn't so distracting. Anne also carried a black clutch, but hers blended in with her striking strapless black column dress from the Resort 2012 collection.
