Fifty Shades of Grey Special : The Anastasia Steele Look
In honor of the much anticipated Fifty Shades of Grey movie coming out this week, we decided to explore the look of our favourite heroine, Anastasia Steele (played by Dakota Johnson). For those of you that have not been part of the phenomenon, Anastasia Steele is our young heroine : a bookworm, inexperienced and naive when it comes to relationships. She is being swept away by a troubled, handsome and magnetic billionnaire named Christian Grey.
Here are tips to recreate the smart-feminine-innocent-yet-incredibly-irresistible vibe of Anastasia Steele :
Flower Prints, Classic Cuts
To recreate this feminine innocent look, you'll have to channel your soft side. Floral prints, flowy dresses, light color palettes composed of girly colors : pinks, mauves, light greens. Cuts are classic and not tight, too form fitting or provocative. You can combine styles like a modern blazer but wear it over a printed dress. When in doubt, choose the conservative route and but with always add a little interesting touch such as a shorter skirt, or a shirt with a little cleavage. Think cute librarian.
For accessories, choose delicate pieces, just to add a small sparkle. The pieces are preferably classic, smaller in size and not immeditely noticeable. The trick is to combine delicate and sweet pieces but nothing too dramatic or provocative.
Natural (yet interesting) Hair and Makeup
Keep your hairstyle natural and free flowing. Your hairstyle cannot be overly polished, think soft curls, natural looking soft buns and half ponytails. The girlier, the better !
For makeup, the colour palette is natural and light but with the addition of pink cheeks (instead of a bronzer) and berry lips. Eye makeup is kept to a minimum and can include a soft catty eye. Colors used for makeup are preferably without shimmer or gloss.
There you have it ! The Anastasia Steele-irresistible-librarian-look in small easy steps !
