Best Styling of Yellow Diamond

Although many celebrities try to wow us in yellow diamonds on the red carpet over the years (ie. Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Julia Roberts, etc.) but hands down, Emma Stone's Louis Vuitton yellow diamond choker necklace from this year's Oscars is my favorite and best styling ever! I love the way it compliments her spring-sunshine vibes with her natural complexion and pastel green dress! I was obsessed by the way the yellow diamond center delicately sparkled when she was on the podium giving her thank you speech! 

And her dress is quite spectacular too! When the camera viewed the audience scene at the Academy Awards, I kept seeing Emma Stone's dress popping out amongst the black suits of the crowd. I only wished she didn't point out the "dress was broke" on stage, since it was not noticeable at all, and the dorky-girl moment cheapened the appeal of the dress. But eh, that is Emma Stone, and this was definitely one of the best fashion moment to remember!

Girl Crush: Lara Cosima

So I came across this Instagram feed with Lara Cosima in a gorgeous Jean Paul Gaultier gown at the Bal des Debutantes in Paris last year and I've been intrigued since! I haven't really paid attention to any debutante balls since 2017 when Reese Witherspoon's daughter made a huge splash in the fashion news. 

So six years later in 2023, another blonde won it all again. In Bridgerton's terms, she is the "diamond" of the ball.  This time, I just love that Countess Lara Cosima Henckel von Donnersmarck stood out like a member of the House of Targaryen from Game of Thrones with the white-blonde hair and ethereal greyish gownand who knows...maybe she was the one who actually started the flip-bob hair trend on the red-carpet! 

Even though her gown isn't colorful, she just stood out! 
It must be the hair! 
I am truly not being sarcastic, but I love it when rich and successful people have beautiful daughters who look like supermodels with access to the best fashion in the world! It's the stuff of glamour and dreams!

Vanessa Hudgens At-Home Style

I actually never watched High School Musical, but I am a fan of Vanessa Hudgens in The Princess Switch on Netflix, and she is a fellow petite! Recently, I've been following her on Instagram for short-ladies style inspiration. 

I'm mostly fascinated by her sweaters and sweatshirts that she wears at home while she promotes grocery store products or whatever they pay her for advertising. 

These two sweatshirts are my current favorites to emulate: 

1). Okay, so I'm not a fan of the velour fabric, but I love the teal-sage color, voluminous sleeves, the angel-print at the chest, and the exaggerated puffy heart necklace. Puffy heart jewelry is definitely in-style right now! Everything about this look is perfect for a cozy video-selfie.  

2). The hair is amazing here, but the hue of the sweatshirt is what got me! Half-zip neckline has been the rage lately, but I'm still on the fence with this neckline because it reminds me of old retired folks who wear visors and play tennis at racquet clubs, not my thing....but this light purple is so pretty! I also wish I can see more of the white wording/logo that is embroidered on the belly of her sweater. 

I know, I once vowed never to wear sweatshirts again, but post-COVID life and work-at-home culture has reeled me back to them, and I'm learning new ways how to style sweatshirts more purposely fashionable! 
Do you love sweatshirts?
