Style Superstar: Alice Englert Goes Retro-Glam

Confession: Your blogger-in-charge of the Style Superstar roundup is an avowed sucker for anything vintage—so it should come as no surprise that it’s Alice Englert’s look from the “Beautiful Creatures” premiere that took home the honors this week. A nipped waist, a swingy skirt, a fabric so luscious that you just want to roll around in a bathtub filled with it? Yes! Please!

Alice’s Elie Saab dress is a runway look from last year, but it feels like it stepped straight out of a fancypants winter party in the 1950s. The blue-and-gold brocade is gorgeous on her, and a perfect complement to the actress’s red hair color (even if we wish she’d pulled it up and out of the way so that the beautiful v-shaped back of the dress could be seen. It’s so pretty!) Paired with a gold clutch and metallic strappy sandals, this look was a shoo-in for Style Superstar.

And also as the premiere: “Pretty Little Liars” actress Sasha Pieterse, who paired her white, flounce-hemmed tube dress with a pair of black satin pumps. But while the high-contrast combo is interesting, this look was a little too 1980s Prom to be a favorite…which just goes to show that not every vintage-inspired look is a winner.

What do you think of this week’s fashion picks?
