Every wardrobe needs at least one fabulous dress that’s sole purpose is to sit in your closet patiently awaiting the perfect occasion. My version of that dress is this amazing gold Dolce & Gabbana dress that I found majorly marked down at one of my favorite bargain haunts. I knew full well that I had nowhere to wear it but I couldn’t resist it’s charm.
Today I am glad I bought that dress because the occasion has just come up (6 months later mind you). Rimmel London has challenged me to style a regal look fit for a royal wedding. I was also tasked with creating a lip color to match my ensemble using Stay Glossy lip gloss.
I don’t envision myself attending a royal wedding anytime soon but if I do, I wouldn’t mind breaking out the old Dolce & Gabbana. So for this look I rocked my Dolce dress and topped it with my classic black cape from New York & Company (chic for cheap). I also kept is classic with the footwear by opting for my Diane von Furstenberg black patent pumps.
To create my regal and oh-so-royal beauty look I used some great products from Rimmel London (some of which I am 100% addicted to now) and some of my standard go-to items …
On my lips: I wanted a golden lip to compliment my dress, so I used three Rimmel London Stay Glossy lip glosses. I started with Everlasting Crush, then added Immortal Charm, and finished it with two layers of Unlimited Gold.
On my face: My standard “Lauren face” routine of Laura Mercier concealer, Armani foundation, Chanel pressed powder, Nars Oasis blush, and Rimmel London natural bronzer in Sun Glow.
On my eyes: I went a little retro for this look with a classic cat eye using Rimmel London liquid liner and a dusting of peach eye shadow. My lashes have one coat of Rimmel London Scandal Eyes Show Off and two coats of Dior Show waterproof mascara.
So that’s my royal wedding look – what would you wear to a royal wedding if you were invited?
