When NBC’s The Voice ended, I had no hope to see Christina Aguilera attending a social event any time soon, but – fortunately – I was wrong. She arrived in Germany to promote her latest fragrance, Secret Potion, which she presented at the Upside East Lounge on July 13th in Munich.
After a long affair with polka-dot dresses and some rare stints into more or less known fashion territories, she’s back to an old flame, the little black dress, and I’m glad this has happened because she always looks amazing whenever she wears one.
This time she opted for a simple dress, which is somehow reminiscent of the Wadely dress by The Row she wore at The Voice finals: here we can find the front zip again, which instantly gives a dress a sort of naughty touch. The dress – a creation by Givenchy – is made special by the lovely grommet motif on the front. Grommets are a trademark of many creations by the French maison; in this case, they give a vaguely rebellious vibe to a traditionally cut dress. Christina paired this dress to a pair of Christian Louboutin Daffodile pumps in metallic python. I know she has a passion for red-sole shoes, but I cannot approve of her choice: these pumps are one of the most hideous shoes I’ve ever seen. The disproportioned shape makes them look like horse hooves and I think they cannot suit anybody.
In the jewellery department, she’s still loyal to Loree Rodkin and wore pieces by the American designer she’s already worn many times – the famous Maltese-cross bondage ring, the lovely Ghost ring and diamond ball earrings.
I’m quite surprised of the hairstyle she chose for the occasion: I’ve never been a fan of very long, loose and wavy locks (her hair is scarily similar to a cross between Rapunzel and a mermaid), but this look is kind of attractive on her. I’m still convinced she should do something different with her hair, opting for a different hair colour included. As for her make-up, I cannot complain because it’s flawless as usual: her trademark red lipstick is back, and so is the mesmerizing rosy glow on her cheeks.
