Celebrity Style Inspiration: Vanessa Hudgens

Vanessa Hudgens first burst on the scene as the "good girl" in the High School Musical TV movies. Now branching out from the Disney-world, her sense of style has evolved far from that bubblegum world. Vanessa is now known for her eclectic, boho chic style and old Hollywood glamour. She first caught my eye in the photo below-- sleek black trousers and a gorgeous Tucker silk blouse, given a studded belt to contrast the soft with a bit of edge. Gorgeous!

What Vanessa Hudgens usually never lacks is accesories! She's not afraid to layer long necklaces on her petite frame, going for lots of texture and sparkle. For her Oscar look below, her then-boyfriend Zac Efron was her best accessory, and she opted for just some elegant long earrings. Pink coral, maybe? Check out my simple Pink Coral drop earrings here!

Most recently, Vanessa has been sporting more of a boho-chic look, complete with floppy felt hats, feathers, armcuffs, and lots of layered jewelry. Think Ali Macgraw with a little early Cher thrown in.  Check out Vanessa's outfit she wore to the Outside Lands music festival, below. I love the tribal jewelry, maxi skirt, and of course, feather accessories!

Get the look! My Small Chevron Necklace and Long Feather Earrings.
Here's another look that Vanessa loves to wear, a simple black cross. Even with its simple lines, the black stone makes an impact! I have a version of her black cross necklace in black onyx with gold overlay, on leather cord. Wear it shorter or choose a longer length to layer.

I'll continue to watch Hudgen's style evolve. As she continues to find her own voice and style, I'm sure it will become something even more amazing.

Celebrity Style Inspiration: Megan Fox

I recently spotted this photo of Megan Fox on her way to dinner with her stepson Cassius and hubby Brian Austin Green and was mesmerized by her look. I loved the scarlet of the flowing long maxi dress and of course loved the chunky chain she wore with a bright pop of turquoise color contrasting against the red! A stunning jewelry look on a stunningly beautiful actress.

The mystical properties of turquoise say that the stone helps you communicate, so  it is a good stone to keep around your throat and neck.  Peggy Li Creations jewelry has a few turquoise necklace options available -- necklaces, earrings and rings -- including a necklace similar to the one Megan Fox wears here:

Turquoise Chunk Necklace: On sale for $105!

3-Stone Turquoise Necklace: $69-$79

Turquoise Nugget Ring: $49-$52

Do you love turquoise jewelry? To me, there is no other blue stone quite like it. It is a timeless addition to your jewelry wardrobe. Try any of my turquoise necklaces, earrings or rings to see for yourself!
All the best,

FAQ: What jewelry was on Buffy, the Vampire Slayer Season 6, Part II

Sarah Michelle Gellar's new show "Ringer" premieres September 13th, 2011. So excited to see her back on the screen! Her new show has gotten me nostalgic about the awesome Buffy days. So I dug into the image archives to find the place where it all started... my first Peggy Li Creations jewelry designs on TV!

Buffy, the Vampire Season 6 was a great year for me as a jewelry designer and big "Buffy" fan! You can see all the jewelry designs used on Buffy, Season 4, as well as on Buffy, Season 6 part I. Here are the rest of the Peggy Li Creations seen on season 6 on characters Amy, Willow, Tara and Dawn (Played by actresses Elizabeth Anne Allen, Alyson Hannigan, Amber Benson and Michelle Trachtenberg, respectively).

Here in the episode "Wrecked", Amy tries to persuade Willow to go see a friend of hers. She's wearing a handmade necklace featuring vintage mother-of-pearl belt buckles transformed into necklace links, joined together with ultrasuede. This neckpiece choker tied at the back and was adjustable!

Michelle Trachtenberg as Buffy's sister(?) Dawn in one of her first big roles, pre-Gossip Girl, wears a red white and blue pendant I created out of a sticker sheet, on a leather cord. They were puffy glitter stickers that I liked the look of. OK, so perhaps not my best design moment. But it was on episode "Doublemeat Palace" of Buffy fame!

In the episode "Normal Again," Alyson Hannigan as Willow wears a double stranded necklace I made out of vintage carnelian beads. These beads were truly fantastic, worn down like seaglass, matte and so unique! The longer strand featured a tiny 18k gold pendant and the entire necklace was finished with a filigree pearl clasp in the back.  I sold out of these necklaces so quickly! And I have never seen those beads again.

Last, but not least, Amber Benson as Tara. I love the jewelry pieces she wore in the episode "Seeing Red". Here, she as on mother of pearl earrings with hand-twisted wires. Her necklace is a wire worked piece created with vintage mother of pearl carved into different size flower buttons. So amazing! It was an ethereal piece, fit for an Elf Queen, or in this case, a magical Tara.

There you go! As I find more screencaps I will add more pieces (yes, there is more). Too bad Buffy was not filmed in the age of HD. Someday!  Want to see more of my designs on TV and film? Check out the Peggy Li Creations Press Page for movies, TV, print, celebrities and online press.
