Soft and Delightful

I adore Anne Hathaway. Follow my Tumblr and you’ll see tons of images of her (among others). Every now and then I run across this picture.

65th Venice Film Festival in  Atelier Versace

There is something about the combination of this seafoam dress and her amazing smile that makes me think of a sunny day at the beach.  It’s the perfect mix of green and taupey/grey.  I challenge you to create an EOTD based on this dress!

Your look must be used JUST for this contest and not posted anyplace else.

You can chose to do a whole face, or just your eyes.

You may not copy any ‘guru’ look, although you can certainly use a tutorial for inspiration.

Entries must be posted here and MUST include at least two pictures and a FULL list of products used.

Please do not use photo editing software to ‘complete’ your look.  In other words, no airbrushing.

The contest runs from now until Friday, June 24th.

You may enter (comment) only once.

Readers will vote on the top three and they will be announced on Friday, July 1st.

The prizes will include scents from OHWTO and Epically Epic!

  1. How cool! Those are not even colors I would think of pairing together. Love it!

  2. I don’t like her, but the dress is gorgeous and I plan to participate! Great contest! 🙂

  3. Did you see her in “Love and Other Drugs?” She was amazing in that movie! That dress is beautiful and I’m definitely inspired to participate as well :).

  4. Long live the brunettes!

  5. I’m so entering too. Very doubtful I’d even get close to the top three, but I was immediately inspired the colors. 🙂

  6. Wait, does this mean I couldn’t post the look for this contest in my own blog as an EOTD?

    • Only AFTER it’s been submitted and you MUST note on your own post that it is a submission here with a link.
