Celeb Snob: Ginnifer Goodwin

ginnifergoodwin.jpgGennifer Goodwin is one of those modest celebs that we have grown to admire; she always seems to look utterly fabulous, yet isn’t a media hound with her picture splashed across practically every glossy known to man. The subtleness of her style makes it genuinely great; I particularly love how she manages to take the little black dress to the next level with beaded necklace and a pair of amazing taupe-colored heels.

In order to secure Gennifer’s look, start with finding the perfect lbd. We like that hers has a touch of lace without going overboard, and found similar versions in the Juicy Couture Lace-Bodice Dress ($248, Neiman Marcus) and the Anne Klein Dress Lace Sleeve Jersey Dress ($198, Nordstrom). Spend less and still look fabulous with peekaboo lace accents in the Calvin Klein Sleeveless Sheath Dress ($99.99, Macy’s) or the Kimchi Blue Knit Lace Shoulder Dress ($44.99, Urban Outfitters). Next up is really what could be the deal breaker in achieving this look – the necklace. The idea here is to strands of beading in a contrast color that really pops against the black. The length is a bit negotiable; Gennifer sports a longer version, but anything from 16-inch strands to Gennifer’s length could work.

We love the mixed blue color way of this Lee Angel Jewelry Anik Beaded Necklace ($352, Shopbop.com), but understand that price is definitely an issue, so a few wallet-friendly options include the Shimmer Beaded Necklace in Black/Cream($6.80, Forever 21), the Beaded Tonal Twist Necklace in Black/ Gray/ White ($19.99, Target) or the Geometric Bead and Link Necklace in Blue($12.99, Target).

ginnifergoodwin4.jpgThe footwear selection is almost as important as the necklace -it’s

got to be sleek, and sophisticated, without veering too far into

trendy. We like the Steven Rager Peep-Toe Heels ($110.30, Zappos.com), which make the look slightly more casual, and the Via Spiga ‘Caramia 2′ Pumps ($197.95, Nordstrom) add a dose of high fashion sheen via their patent finish.

Our number one selection, however, are these Guess Footwear Drifter Pumps ($70, Piperlime.com); not only is the price right, but they are almost a dead-ringer for Gennifer’s own pair of pumps.

Last but not least, don’t forget the opaque tights! In our opinion, there’s no need to pay more than $6 for the tried-and true Hue Super-Opaque Control Top Tights ($6.25, Dillard’s).

So there you have it – not only does Gennifer Goodwin look effortlessly

chic, but it is also rather easy to achieve, now that you’ve got some

great suggested items!
