I saw this Catherine Malandrino dress in the showroom and just had to try it on. It’s way more low-cut than I usually wear, but the zingy emerald green silk caught my eye and bright blocks of color often translate well on TV. I wanted to give my look an art deco edge in honor of spring’s Great Gatsby obsession, so my makeup artist Rachel Wood swept my hair to the side and found a gorgeous vintage Amber hair piece to pin on top. We worked the eye makeup around the amber tone with a dramatic bronze smoky eye. As for the shoes, I figured a gold sandal was the obvious choice to pair with such a classic dress silhouette, so I went for something a little more edgy—a pair of white, bejeweled Jimmy Choos with a thick ankle strap.
