Crystal Renn In Alberta Ferretti – 27th Annual Footwear News Achievement Awards

Crystal Renn In Alberta Ferretti - 27th Annual Footwear News Achievement AwardsCrystal Renn attended the 27th Annual Footwear News Achievement Awards, held yesterday at the IAC Building in New York City.

The model found inspiration in Alberta Ferretti’s Fall 2011 collection, donning a taupe overlay dress embellished with allover, floral-inspired beading and embroidery. It was only half recognizable to the design that originally took to the runway, having been modified with a new, off-the-shoulder V-neckline and nude, full-body lining.

Adding to the glint of the gown, she accessorized with flower-shaped, metal earrings and a crystal-studded clutch. At an event such as this, no ordinary pair of shoes would do. Crystal stepped up with her Gianvito Rossi gold glitter-flecked sandals.

An exaggerated, Cleopatra cat-eye and an intricate, tightly braided updo completed her ornate entrance.

Despite the highly decorative overtones, the look is still seamlessly balanced with its subdued metallic elegance. Do you agree?

    This. Can’t find the words to describe how perfect this is. Makes me think of renaissance and Liz Taylor’s Cleopatra. Stunning.

      Yes. And it’s not often that one actually improves upon a garment when modifying it from the original. But that’s the case here.

    With another updo it would have been complete perfection for me, as it stands it gets an 9/10 from me

    This is a perfect look in my opinion. The lining in fact makes the dress look better than the runway version. This is what inspired styling looks like. I love this!

    Don’t care for the dress, but she looks good.

    This looks dated to me.

    Gorgeous. She’s even toned down the pose a bit. I’m a sucker for braided ‘dos, adore the silhouette, and lust for the shoes. In short, love h2t.

    She looks good, close up of makeup – hmmm…. not great. But I still long for the plus size Crystal… she seemed so happy as a plus, but I guess she found more $$ in skin and bones!! … I know she lost the weight some time ago… but I still long for her voluptuous body!
