It says something about the poor state of red carpetry at the moment that we almost started this post off “Ladystars? Look at what Jewel is doing.”
But in a December where practically every gal with a fanbase seemed determined to dress like it’s May, we feel the need to point to Jewel and say “See? You wanna show off the goods in December? Fine. Here’s how.”
Jewel attends the 2013 American Country Awards at the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada in a Jovani dress paired with Rupert Sanderson heels and Jacob & Co. jewelry.
No, she’s not even close to setting our style world on fire, and frankly, she looks like she’s freezing, but she looks totally season-appropriate, and she even wore the metallic shoes which makes us absurdly happy because it seems like we’ve said “We would’ve recommended metallic shoes” about 300 hundred times in the last couple of weeks. So attagirl, girl. A little sparkle and a little sex. Maybe it’s not magazine-cover chic, but there ain’t nothing wrong with that.
Look at us! Going country! We get infected by our red carpet coverage, darlings. After the Latin Grammys, we tend to erupt into Spanish intermittently. After the Teen Choice Awards, we get all moody and slam doors a lot. When they have all those end-of-the-year “Powerful Women in Entertainment’-style luncheons, we just want to grab a clutch and a pencil skirt and stand like we’re empowering young women everywhere
You don’t want to see us after the BET Awards. It’s embarrassing to white people.
