Tonight is the very first episode of Fashion Star, and I’m super pumped! I was so excited to get out there on the runway and begin hosting the show, and I chose a bright red gown by Black Halo for the premiere. (That’s the same designer who made me a gorgeous blush dress for the Oscars last year, and their tailoring is amazing.) I wanted to balance out the formal, structured red dress with a boho edge, so instead of classic jewels, I picked a wooden cocktail ring from BCBG, and chunky gold bangles from Le Vian. My makeup artist Rachel Wood warmed up the look with a rich brown smoky eye, clean, gleaming skin, bronzed, contoured cheeks, and beachy waves pinned loosely to the side. Oh and my shoes! You could just catch a glimpse of the gunmetal silver cut-out patterns on my Giuseppe Zanotti heels. I’m obsessed with gunmetal this season. After seeing it on Naomi Watts, Sandra Bullock and Stacy Keibler at the Academy Awards, it’s definitely the new metallic for spring.
