Fashion Flashback: Thandie Newton in Marni Fall 2006 and the Season’s Best Blue Accessories

Thandie Newton is one of my favorite actresses and style stars. She can wear virtually anything and make it look beautiful and she often takes fashion risks, meaning she’s a girl after my own heart.

She was seen at the Oxfam Gala Screening of “Equals on Film” in London in a long blue and white printed dress from Marni and a coat from their Fall 2006 collection. She accessorized with brown Mulberry boots and Miu Miu’s Horn-strap Suede Tote.

Marni is rarely worn to events because it is just that eccentric and I love that she chose the brand. I am all for wearing pieces from past seasons because it really shows some fashion knowledge on the part of the celebrity and/or stylist. Like most everyone, I am tired of seeing this season’s pieces long before they are even available. The look was relaxed and beautiful and Newton wore very little makeup, which is a true testament to her beauty.

Blue is such a powerful color for the season and always makes a statement in any of its varying shades. I love the idea of wearing a neutral look with a pop of blue in cobalt or turquoise. Here are my favorite accessory picks in the aquatic shade:

Dannijo is one of the industry’s hottest jewelry lines and their Stingray Cuff in Blue ($300) gives a hint of the exotic and a pop of color. Denim is no longer just for jeans, so add Jean-Michel Cazabat’s Danica Denim Lace Up Sandals ($225) to your Spring shoe collection. A statement necklace is always a must-buy and Nest’s Blue Agate Double-Strand Necklace ($350) is dazzling with a raw kind of beauty.
