Celebrities Love…Floral Crowns

Back in September during New York Fashion Week, Alexa Chung and a group of FROWers took to their front row seats at Anna Sui’s Spring 2013 show wearing floral crowns.

This could have kick-started the recent celebrity crush for floral crowns.

In the last five days, we’ve seen three celebs work this look – which we usually associate with spring weddings – on the red carpet this fall.

Alexa’s crown helps give a girlie innocence to her look. Pixie Lott’s provides a pop of colour for her D&G black gown. Delta Goodrem’s complements her pretty pink Dior dress, while Kate Waterhouse’s floral crown just looks all kinds of awkward and not very well thought out.

While all these ladies are sporting flowing locks, floral crowns work just as well, if not better, on those with pixie cuts or braided updos.

Who gets this trend right?

    Alexa did it best, surprisingly. The others are too big, making them look costumey.

      Couldn’t agree more.

      Yeah, I totally agree (though her hair still looks too messy). Overall this is a silly trend–and this coming from a girl who loves flowers and girly stuff. It is just too costumey.

        I agree. This trend can only work if it isn’t competing with everything else. It must look dainty rather than wearing a crown of flowers on your head.

    Only certain girls with a certain quirky personality and style (and age…) can work this flower crown thingy. Think Kirsten Dunst, Elle Fanning and Zooey Deschanel. Alexa pulls it off but the rest look simply ridiculous, even Pixie, who looks like those beauty queens that can’t mantain her crown in place after being coronated.

    No one.

    Alexa’s is okay, but I’m not a big fan of any of these.

    I remember Keira wore a very subtle one to the ‘Seeking a Friend for the End of the World’ screening earlier this summer that I thought looked beautiful.

    one word… RIDICULOUS!

    I totally understand those who say this is too girly, silly, costumey, but for some awkward reason I love it.

    Not a fan of the idea itself but it works best for Delta – she looks adorably pretty with that floral crown.

    • Chanel November 11, 2012 at 09:49 #

      I agree. Alexa looks too much of a hippie, the flowers doesn’t suit Pixie at all and they are askew. And on Kate, she looks awkward and they are way to high for her.

    There is no reason for an adult woman to wear a crown of flowers on her head. They all look ridiculous.

    Pixie and Delta look very cute. I think that it’s a cute trend but it’s for very few occasions, I find Lana Del Rey beautiful in Born to die video but it doesn’t translate very well in real life.

    I was quite surprise floral crown are now becoming a fashion trend. Of course, they are beautiful and feminine with their colours and retro inspiration ( from the 70’s) but they are also a powerful symbol in different cultures. They are embellishments for the calaveras in mexico and a powerful symbol used by feminist groups in Ukraine and Europe generally.

    Fashion trends are often based on appearance and visual, very 1st degree of understanding. Although the real avant-garde designers are trying to elevate their craft and art to another level of comprehension ( McQueen, Coco Chanel did, just to name a few..). Good design is one that suit the body and the environment but also tries to create a statement. The flower crown is obviously trying to do that. So if you think of wearing it you might want to ask yourself if what it symbolizes is part of your values.

    Pardon the spellnig mistakes, english is my second language 😉

      I didn’t know it was a feminist symbol in Ukraine, very interesting! thanks :)

    I love floral crown, they are a strong symbol and celebration of femininity (and/or feminism) wore around the world. It also seems to be inspired by the 70’s a decade I love for its style.
