For last night’s Emmy Awards, “Private Practice” star Kate Walsh wore a strapless, flowy J. Mendel dress, Louis Vuitton shoes, jewelry from the Stephen Russell Contemporary Collection. But what surprised me was when Kate showed E!’s Guiliana a $30 clutch and that she used SUAVE hair style products. Now Suave…that was smart advertising! It just got a major plug at the Emmy’s. When would Suave ever get mentioned at an awards show? Kate also mentioned that besides using Suave hair products, her look wasn’t her choice. Instead, frugalistas voted for which hair style Kate would be wearing on television’s biggest night.
Here were their choices:
Obviously, she chose the modern bob in the middle, and I think it looks sexy and fresh! I also think it’s sexy and fresh to choose a high-low mix for an awards show. It’s how real people dress anyway. Well, maybe not that HIGH. But I definitely like to mix a Chanel bag with American Apparel and J. Crew. Before words like “recessionista” and “frugalista” came into our post-recession vocabulary, I think truly stylish, and of course, girls without trust funds, always dressed this way. But now, it’s fashionable to be frugal. I wonder who else dressed for the recession at last night’s Emmy Awards. And what do you think of Kate’s economical elegance?
