Give ‘Em The Cold Shoulder
There were so many incredible gowns at The Oscars (AND all of the pre and post Oscars parties!) it was hard for me to narrow down my top choices, but then I realized a few of my favorites had ONE thing in common… SHOULDERS. Ok, so you might think shoulders are BORING but hear me out!
Halle Berry opted for a one-shoulder Versace gown in nude and black (one of my favorite color combos!) and a fabulous feathered train, Alessandra Ambrosio reminded us just how sweet a Victoria’s Secret angel can be (AS IF we even needed a reminder!) in a cold-shoulder Ralph and Russo satin gown in the perfect shade of blush, and Olivia Culpo took us back to the roaring 20’s in Marchesa complete with delicately accented fringed shoulders and a little black bow adorned around her waist.
As women, I know how easy it is to be critical of ourselves and our bodies, but I have YET to meet a woman who does not have beautiful shoulders. So next time you go shopping and are having a meltdown in the dressing room, grab yourself a cold shoulder blouse or dress (this style looks flattering on EVERYONE!) and you’ll get an instant boost of confidence!
Lesson Learned: Give ’em the cold shoulder!
