Julianne Moore's Black Midi Shift Dress Was The Epitome Of Chic — PHOTOS
Julianne Moore is like that one woman I want to DM every single day and ask her if she'd like to be my personal mentor — Not only is she an incredibly moving actress, she's also hysterical, and happens to have impeccable style. Julianne Moore wore a midi dress with bell sleeves at the ACRIA's 20th Anniversary Holiday Dinner in N.Y.C., , nailing the effortlessly chic look.
First off, let me just say that she has pretty much the most beautiful hair color I've ever seen, and she knows what to do with it. Some of her best hits include a deep red Chloé strapless gown, deep V emerald green Tom Ford dress, a black Balenciaga off-the-shoulder dress, and of course, the unforgettable Chanel Haute Couture gown she wore to the 2015 Academy Awards. I mean, talk about a classic beauty.
And at this holiday dinner, she doesn't disappoint. Wearing a Simone Rocha black midi gown and cutout Aquazzura heels, Moore perfectly nailed the demure-chic look I am always trying to go for. She paired the gorgeous dress with a textured black clutch, middle part, loose waves, and a bold, red lip. Black, like Paris, is always a good idea, and Moore reminds us exactly why with this look.
The best part of this ensemble is that it looks incredibly warm and comfortable. Perhaps one of my favorite things about shift dresses is their silhouette. It's like wearing a draped blanket all night long, except that it actually looks so put together.
