Actress Lena Headey looked as crisp as a winter morning as she arrived for the SCREAM 2011 awards at the Universal Studios Backlot in Universal City, California on the 15th of October. The Game of Thrones vamp chose to go with the androgynous look for the event. Her ensemble did, however, have a bit of a feminine edge.
Lena donned a loosely-fitting gray suit with matching tapered pants. However, she should have taken some care with the length of her pants as the bunching near her ankles makes her look shorter than she already is.
She wore a black top with a plunging U neckline under the suit. The skin exposed by the revealing neckline was offset by a small pendant necklace as well as a longer one that fell almost to the waist. A pair of navy blue pumps added the subtle touch of color without which this look would have been too drab.
The hairstyle is what made the look for this Best Fantasy Actress nominee. Her hair was cut short and left slightly messy, while her bangs were swept to the side. She kept her makeup to a minimum with only pink lips and some light eye makeup. A little black clutch completed the look.
This was a great persona for Lena. She looked much younger than her 38 years. Her hair style in particular served to play up the strength of the androgynous look. Someone should have given her a talking to about those pants though…
Get The Look
The androgynous look is easy to pull off if you follow a few simple tips. First, choose clothes that are not too figure-hugging, especially if you are a curvy woman. Don’t make the same mistake Lana did; alter the length of the pants so that it falls neatly and does not gather in unsightly folds. Next, either cut your hair short or tie it up as close to your head as possible. And finally, don’t go overboard with the makeup.
Sport an androgynous look for a business meeting to be automatically portrayed as a strong, confident, no-nonsense woman who has the upper hand. Going to a formal party and don’t want to wear a dress? Throw together an androgynous look which is not just low-maintenance but is just as stunning as any glitzy gown.
