Look Of The Day: Jaime King in Valentino

Jaime King in Valentino

Ohhh. Emmm. GORGEOUSNESS. This was my exact reaction upon seeing Jaime King in this stunning Valentino gown. The actress, who co-hosted a benefit at the Soho House in West Hollywood for the celebrity charity Stand Up To Cancer last week, absolutely shined in her floor length stunner. I thought this dress might potentially be vintage but after searching, much to my surprise, it's from the Fall 2011 Ready To Wear collection. It was styled quite differently for the runway show and I have to admit I think I like Jamie's choice better:

I think the deep V in the back is much more sexy and the higher neckline is much more flattering than the one strap going across. The chartreuse is such an unexpected twist which really gives it an antique look. With the gown having so much intricate detail, I really appreciate her minimalistic approach to the accessories and jewelry. Simple bun, light makeup and lovely jewelry. I'm wearing a similar style dress (floor length, open back, fun pattern but sleeveless) to a wedding in September and I'd like to emulate this whole look for the event. Including these gorgeous Bulgari diamond earrings.

Also being launched at the benefit was jewelry line Saint Vintage Designs fall collection. She's wearing one of their fabulous necklaces above.

What do you guys think? Are you feeling this vintage inspired gown and jewels? Do tell! xoxo
