Current Obsession: Mustard and Red

Let's just ignore any immediate associations with McDonald's golden arches, because I am really feeling this mustard/red color combination right now...in an incredibly chic, non-McDonald's-cheeseburger kind of way. If you've been following my blog for a while, you might remember me obsessing about my attraction to mustard yellow some time ago. Now I am dying to rock a mustard frock with some bright red lips and red ruby earrings ala Diane Kruger at the SAG awards [dress by designer Jason Wu].

And while we're here, can we just give Miss Diane K. a nod for always being interesting and edgy, without ever really seeming like she's trying to be either. I mean, who wears this color to an award's show? I love her!

I've been really loving mustard yellow, too, of late. I've made my vintage mustard/goldenrod APC sweater my current go-to for this crazy weather we've been having in LA - and my hair is quite red and I'm almost always wearing red lipstick, so then there's that ;)

And Diane Kruger completely blew me away in that dress... what a vision!

"Who wears mustard yellow on a red carpet?" The fashion police on E! compared it to Michelle Williams' very nearly mustard colored dress from a few years ago (Vera Wang, 2006 Oscars). I loooved the color on both ladies. I currently have no mustard yellow in my closet, but I'm thinking that it might be my next purchase.

I thought that Diane Kruger was equally stunning at the Globes, even though that dress got panned by the critics.

I never would have thought of the color combination, but I DO love it! So interesting.

I love it too...someone else did it last year, but it was a red dress with mustard heels. Getting old is a bitch...my memory flees whenever I call it.

Rococo -- Oh! Mustard and red hair! Gorgeous -- I'm jealous.

Ashley -- She is always stunning AND interesting.

3 Stinky -- I know, it seems as if it wouldn't work, but it does.

Jill -- Now I want to know who it was, so I can find a photo! But, believe me, I know what you mean about your brain fleeing from you...


It works really well with her complexion. Lauren

For some reason, this made me want fries. :) I love the color mustard, and on some people, like Diane K, it looks fabulous with red! Dunno if I could pull it off tho!

Maybe it was Renee Zellwegger or Reece Witherspoon.
