Color Me Inspired

Cameron Diaz is not necessarily one of my favorite actresses today, but when she gets it right style-wise, she really gets it right (often styled by Rachel Zoe). I’ve loved the magenta + turquoise combination for a while now, but as my friend Elle put it, “no one has done it as well as Cameron.”

Here she is at the The Met’s Costume Institute Gala in 2007 – stunning magenta dress and chunky, vintage-y turquoise accessories.

I also love the Van Cleef & Arpels turquoise & diamond necklace Eva Mendes wore to the 2009 Golden Globes – so bold against her structured white frock.

I’ve *definitely* chosen bridesmaids dresses – FINALLY! We’re doing gorgeous, floor-length Dessy gowns in “merlot” (a magenta-y color) with turquoise accents. I know the turquoise might make it slightly more spring/summer, but I love it, so I don’t really care. Isn’t it a fun, different, color combo? And, since each ‘maid will have her own dress, she’ll also have her own, unique turquoise jewelry to go with. Check – another decision made (and blogged about, so that makes it totally final, right?).
