A Floral Crown On The Red Carpet: Yes, It CAN Be Done!

Currently, in New York, a heap of snow has just fallen on the ground, and locals are shivering due to the post-Sandy Nor'easter. Yet, this bright and sunny Pixie Lott look at the WGSN Global Fashion Awards is just firing on all cylinders — even if a summery floral is the centerpiece of the outfit.
The idea of a giant flowery crown on a red carpet might sound unintuitive, but Ms. Lott doesn't just make it work — she stops the show. No subtle buds here: The big, fluffy flowers sit elegantly on the U.K. songstress' head, while her tousled golden blonde hair holds the roses aloft. For us, there are two solid reasons this look really rocks...

The first reason is that Lott's makeup opts for fresh-faced and flushed, instead of vampy or over the top. She has pink cheeks and lined eyes to age up the look but doesn't go overboard — the headpiece does that on its own. Secondly, the off-the-shoulder Dolce & Gabbana black dress is both bohemian and formal, a strange but oddly compelling mix. The slouchy sleeves keep her look dreamy and whimsical, but the fitted form of the dress makes the entire ensemble red carpet-ready.
