January Jones from Mad Men at the Emmy’s t’other day finally lifted me out of my bored state of mind when it comes to the red carpet. Clearly what we need is more “pretty robot” style. After Christina Hendricks, January Jones is my new Prettiest Girl in the World. Mad Men is superlative and she just looks more and more beautiful as episodes go on.
Obviously I won’t be popping out to the shops in white robo-gowns but there is something beautiful about an all white, snuggly wool outfit in the gloom of winter. I saw a girl last year in white and gold with beautiful cream-coloured hair done in a crown of plaits. She was standing at Lewisham bus station but really deserved to be going to the Crillon ball, dressed by Chanel.
At the other end of the scale of amazing TV, Leighton Meester of Gossip Girl is in white too. COINCIDENCE? Yes.
I wish designers would hem everything though as I am very tired of the deconstructed, flyaway threads look.
I went to this show but decided not to review it as I wasn’t very inspired by it other than this look, although I sat next to a really nice girl who was in raptures. You can read my burblings on it over at Amelia’s Magazine. It did show that white isn’t just for little girls or the bridal look you often see on American TV actors. I personally have an absolute yen for white cotton frocks, although this is a summer past-time so I am safe for the minute.
