The holidays came a bit early this year when makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury launched her flagship beauty boutique in the Covent Garden district of London on Dec. 3. Called the “Naught Christmas Party,” the launch brought out several stylish stars, all dressed in festive and fashionable looks for the event.
Catching our eye in a mixed metallic look was Amal Clooney, who wore a silver and gold metallic crop top and matching culottes. She completed her look with silver pointed-toe pumps and gold chandelier earrings, says InStyle.
Following Clooney’s metallic look was Kate Bosworth in an all-white ensemble by Simone Rocha. InStyle says that the actress polished off her look with a gilded clutch and pearl-embellished Nicholas Kirkwood pumps.
Although Clooney and Bosworth are dressed for the launch of a new boutique, there are certain facets of their looks that you can apply to your holiday style:
- Shine bright – Both Clooney and Bosworth incorporated metallics into their look, something that can easily make your outfit much more festive. While Clooney wore head-to-toe metallics, the mixed metallics were not so pronounced that they clashed; instead, they created a multidimensional, yet cohesive look. Bosworth chose to use hints of metallics, carrying a gold-accented minaudière and wearing pale gold heels. Whether you go for a full-on metallic look or use silver and gold sparingly, adding metallics to your holiday ensembles is a great way to be festive without wearing traditional red and green.
- Patterns and prints – Another similarity between these two outfits is that they both incorporate a pattern or print. However, they are both tonal; Clooney’s barely-perceptable floral print is done in gold on silver, while Bosworth’s pattern is white on white. If you are hesitant to wear louder prints like a large plaid or floral, tonal patterns and prints are a great way to add visual interest and depth to your look. They also can be very sophisticated when done in a modern silhouette like Clooney’s crop top and culotte combination or Bosworth’s ankle-length dress.
