4. Malin Akerman

Jennifer Lawrence wows at the NYC screening of her new film Hunger Games on Tuesday. The actress sports a sexy, pleated, plunging, forest green dress by Calvin Klein Collection paired with strappy black sandals by Jimmy Choo. Tousled waves and natural makeup complete her look.
2011 saw a renewed interest in the fascinator, due in large part to America’s (bordering on unhealthy) obsession with a certain Duchess and her wedding. While the fascination with the fascinator (I couldn’t help it) has since died down, our penchant for placing pretty trinkets atop our heads has yet to disappear. So now we have turned, full of naive, expectant hope to…The Headband.
Awards season has just barely begun and already we’ve seen a multitude of tantalizing toppers. Check out the magnificent millinery on display from awards season so far! Above left: Michelle Williams paired a sweet, embellished headband with her Jason Wu frock, and Dianna Agron adds an earthy element to her digital-print Mary Katrantzou dress with a stone-and-wire headpiece.
Brie Larson attempts to rescue a look with a sparkly wraparound headband and Charlize Theron tops off her floaty Dior confection with a sparkly headpiece.
But don’t be fooled, stylish readers. The formal headwear trend does not belong only in a ballroom or on a red carpet. A fanciful headpiece looks just as lovely and on-trend when worn with a more casual look. Witness several lovely ladies proving my point.
Top Row: Karolina Kurkova; Busy Phillips channeling 60s mod in a minimalist silver headband, door-knocker earrings and knit dress. Bottom Row: Hippie chick Vanessa Hudgens rocks the double band with a simple cotton top and tribal necklace, and Nicole Richie masters the formal/casual look by pairing glammed-up accessories with a simple white t-shirt and bedroom eye makeup.
When it comes to accessorizing with headbands, the rules are anything but hard and fast. All you really have to do is choose one that suits your taste. Do that, and the odds are it will play well with much of your existing wardrobe.
A few notes on staying within the boundaries of good taste:
-Don’t pair a statement-making headband with equally loud jewelry. If all your accessories are competing, none of them can shine.
-Speaking of shine, if you choose a sparkly topper, go easy on the glimmer elsewhere. A few well-placed twinkles are fun and fanciful; more than that look like you’re playing dress-up.
Both of the above rules apply not only to apparel, but to makeup as well. Keep these rules in mind while modeling this cheeky trend and you’ll look perfectly fashion-forward.
Now that you’ve got the taste for these pretty, posh pieces, here are some of the loveliest I’ve seen.
