Justin Bieber probably didn’t mind that all eyes were on his date for the L.A. premiere of his movie Never Say Never recently. Selena Gomez looked absolutely lovely in an amethyst colored dress that perfectly complemented her skin, eye, and hair coloring. The dress, by Reem Acra, was worn with studded heels, and all were perfectly offset by her lovely bronze glow.
This is a look that you can duplicate for a lot less by some strategic shopping around. Tracy Reese makes a slightly more casual purple wrap dress in a textured silk and rayon blend that features the deep v-neck and cinched waist of the classic wrap dress. A hidden zipper makes it fit perfectly.
Studded heels are big this season, and Nina makes a suede pump called Hanett that features a tapered heel, along with studding on the vamp and toe, for an ever-so-slightly edgy look.
As for the suntan, unless you’re blessed with a complexion like Selena Gomez’, you’ll have to fake it. But that’s easy with all the self-tanners on the market today. Tan Towel towelettes are a convenient way to tan, and for those who prefer self-tanning lotion, Clarins makes a highly rated Self Tanning Instant Gel that dries quickly.
