Chrissy Teigen made an out-of-character choice on the red carpet at the 2014 Oscars this evening (March 2).
The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue covergirl and newlywed wore a voluminous gown from Monique Lhullier Fall 2014 paired with a clutch and shoes by Jimmy Choo and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry.
We’re used to seeing Chrissy in uber-sexy, slinky gowns and she stepped out of her comfort zone while delivering a major fashion moment. The abstract print and pockets make this dress feel incredibly modern even though the cut reads couture.
Chrissy made a smart call not overwhelming the look with jewelry; the earrings are just enough to add a touch of glamour while letting the dress do most of the talking.
The tousled, swept back hair also adds to the modernity of the look.
I absolutely loved seeing Chrissy embrace a more contemporary type of sexy. How about you?
