Fans of The Big Bang Theory have to agree that what Kaley Cuoco chose to wear for her Hollywood Walk of Fame Star Ceremony is especially fitting, given that her character is nothing if not the feminine foil to a whole group of nerdy dudes. I appreciate the nod to Penny, who’s made her such a familiar face in households around the country, though it’s pretty clear it’s a personal favorite too (hello, we’re talking about a woman who got married in a pink gown).
That, my friends, is a two-piece guipure lace Monique Lhuillier creation in a color the brand calls orchid and I call neon magenta bubble gum. It’s from the designer’s spring 2014 collection and exemplifies the kind of formal dressing I’m loving right now. Worn together, the matching pieces look crazy chic, but you could take them apart for double the outfits. Imagine that top worn with boyfriend jeans or the pencil skirt with a simple silk tee tucked in at the office. Suddenly a formal outfit could be worn practically anywhere.
