SheFinds Goes Golden: Mellow Yellow
January 16, 2007
Category: Best Bounce-Back From a Breakup
Winner: Reese Witherspoon
Why: When Best Week Ever’s Golden Globes liveblogger Michelle Collins called Reese Witherspoon â€œa walking middle finger to ex-husb Ryan Phillippe,â€ she couldnâ€™t have been more on the mark. Newly single Reese looked svelte in a look-at-me yellow beaded cocktail dress and the most delish ruby satin shoes. Her radiant red lipstick and edgier, angled tresses completed a look that took the award for better-looking half of a kaput relationship (start taking notes, Cameron!)
Get the Look: Assuming you donâ€™t plan on devastating your ex with your post-breakup hotness on the red carpet, go for J. Crew’s strapless butternut-yellow beach dress. It still has the wow factor of Reeseâ€™s yellow, but itâ€™s more appropriate for the places you might actually run into Mr. Wrong. Of course, thereâ€™s no law saying a single gal canâ€™t glam it up for a routine trip to the grocery store: push your cart in Hollywould’s Red Ava pumps to tell the grocery-buying world that youâ€™re back on the market and loving it.
