Look of the Day: Katherine McPhee

August 22, 2008

Here we have American Idol runner-up Katherine McPhee embarking on her new career: film actress. She’s at the premiere of her new movie, The House Bunny, starring Anna Farris, and I think she looks just lovely. I love how she embraces her curves with a tight-fitting dress that is glamorous but still toned down enough for a daytime premiere. 
I also adore her choice of jewelry: her three stacked rose-cut diamond bracelets from Amrapali and one large cocktail ring on the other hand is all she needs to make a statement. By steering clear of bold earrings or a showy necklace, the whole ensemble feels chic, young, and not too fussy. 
(I will admit, I do not love her shoes. But I’m willing to overlook it because the rest of the package is so pretty. A simple pair of black satin peep-toe heels would have done the trick perfectly.)
Mismatched stacking bangles are a great way to add a little oomph to your next night out. Here’s a mix of black, white and diamond that will go with nearly anything:
Gem Platinum diamond bangle bracelet. Totally classic, this is the piece to pair with bolder bangles to give your ensemble extra sparkle. 
SOHO black enamel and diamond bangle bracelet. Graphic and bold, this will add some edge. 
Mauboussin 18-karat white gold and Mother-of-Pearl hinged bangle. The pearl inlay in a checkerboard pattern is sophisticated and eye-catching.
