Last week at both the MoMA premiere and the Los Angeles premiere of The Gorilla's movie, I wore Kristinit and Sorrelli. The dresses spoke for themselves - a blue striped one-shoulder number and a silver boat-neck tapered & gathered skirt - but there were some key details that maybe weren't revealed in the pictures.
The Sorelli necklace was a show stopper. So many people approached me about the necklace. This was something I probably wouldn't have picked up by itself, but it really set the whole look. (This is LA Stylist Mom's talent.)
I wore Sorelli drop earrings with the blue dress to the MoMA. They provided just enough sparkle for the event, but the colors made them playful.
We chose these amazing looking Charles Jourdan shoes for the Los Angeles premiere. I loved the scalloped asymmetrical shape of the bootie and the black suede made me think I could wear them a hundred times this winter.
But after several hours my feet were in such pain I was seeing black spots. Look, I'm no stranger to high heel pain, but this was beyond anything I ever felt in my life. I honestly thought I was going to pass out. I made it an hour into the party before I hobbled to the hotel room and swapped them out for (completely inappropriate) sandals.
For both premieres, I got my makeup done at M*A*C and was very pleased with the results. In New York, they used the new long-wearing foundation on me (blending two colors) and I will attest that my makeup still looked great at the end of the night. For both evenings, I used their lip primer - which I was so impressed with I purchased later - and lipstick in Rebel. I will say that the lipstick certainly photographed well.
I feel good about both looks and only wished I had taken more pictures. I have no pictures of my family at the Los Angeles and barely any pictures of the MoMA event. I vacillate between enjoying the moment and not hiding behind the camera or later being disappointed that I didn't take enough pictures. It's a tricky balance.
Do you have Night Out looks or tricks that keep you confident?
