How to Get Penelope's Elegant, Red Carpet Look
Step 1: Beige Doesn't Have to be BoringPenelope's one-shoulder, Grecian-inspired look was was kept from being too plain by elegant draping and glamorous adornments. Her strappy heels complemented the high slit of her dress for beige done right, ensuring the look as classy with an almost regal feel. The paler tone of the dress highlighted her flawless, bronzed skin and created a fantastic look from head to toe. When wearing beige, adding sparkle and/or a great dress cut really takes the color from boring to beautiful.
Step 2: Match Metallics and Bring on the BlingThe soft sheen of metallics of Penelope's accessories were the perfect choice for her dress. The gold detailing of her stunning diamond bracelet accented the gold elements of her dress really making them pop and pulling the outfit together. Also, the simplicity of her clutch worked well and didn't fight with the rest of the outfit. When wearing such an elegant dress, keep it fresh by adding on some sparkling accessories like the gorgeous hoop earrings Penelope wore. It keeps the look formal, but still sexy and fun.
Step 3: Effortless Looking Hair and MakeupPenelope kept her long, chestnut locks swept back away from her face and really played up her eyes and lips. Her excellently arched eyebrows create a great frame for her makeup and true to form, she kept with the heavy smoky eye. She balanced the dark eye makeup with a flattering rose-brown lip color and a bronze-pinkish shimmer on her cheeks. Take a tip from Penelope and make sure your makeup is balanced. If you have a heavy, darker look for your eyes, keep the lipstick light and vice versa.
