Intern Style File: Jurnee Smollett

Hey Guys!
Sorry for the late post!
My internet was down last night
--a veritable nightmare for a blogger!
London intern Natalie thankfully stepped in today with a hot Style File on a Fashion Bomb-esque actress to watch: Jurnee Smollett.
Hi Guys!
Today's Style File is dedicated to Jurnee Smollett, a star on the rise.
Jurnee has been on the small screen since she was around the age of 5 and has recently been popping onto the silver screen, with heart stealing performances (Great Debaters Anyone?). As a young woman of color in Hollywood, Jurnee has recently pulled out the stops when it comes to style.
She wasn't always a fashionista...
...dowdy used to be the rule, not the exception for this beauty.
Thankfully, at recent events she's been coming a little more correct in laidback belted striped frocks…
...…and in dresses and gowns accented with embroidery, flower accents, feathers and collars in a delicate color palette of white, light pink, gold or cream…
She also turns on the drama with neutral colors like black and white with ruffles to add a little extra…
…and rocks out from time to time in brighter colors like fuchsia or pale green....
…topped off with peep or open toe heels in neutral or metallic colors, to keep it simple yet cute.
Feeling the fuchsia look? Try these:
Left to right: Tube Bra Top Dress, $38,; Theory Pavia Blitz Strapless Belted Dress, $255,
Like her whole style? How about these:
Top Row: Cracked Leather Retro Bomber, $151.69,; Stuart Weitzman black velvet bow ‘Por Favor’ sandals, $95.99,; Jacinda Leather Shoulder Tote, $595,
Bottom Row: Skinny Lizard Belt, $24.50,
Noir Crystal Classic Large Stone Round Ring, $48.99,; Marc by Marc Jacobs Shoes Two Piece Pump with Ankle Strap, $450,

Top Row: Tibi Fancy Faille Belted Dress, $358,; Kay Unger New York Ruffled-Halter Taffeta Dress, $350,
Bottom Row: Laundry by Design Twist Front Dress, $91.99,; Pheobe One Shoulder Silk Dress, $308,
Want to Splurge? Go with this:
Societies Dress in White, $950,
And don't forget the shoes!

Left to right: Ash Rubis Open Toe Sling Back Pump, $165,
KORS Beau Metallic Open Toe Platform Pump, $290,
Nine West Womens’ Grimes Slingback Sandal, $80,

So what do you think? Does Jurnee have great style?

These interns are lifesavers, aren't they?
Gotta love 'em!
