{Bookish} Style Files: The Lunar Chronicles Edition (+ Giveaway)

I'm so thrilled to be taking part in the official blog tour for Fairest, the soon-to-be latest release in The Lunar Chronicles. As a big fan of this series, I can't wait to dive back into this world - and to learn more about our villain, Queen Levana. Join me + a great group of bloggers as we celebrate and encourage you to pick up The Lunar Chronicles during this tour! (Full schedule can be found here.)

For my stop on the tour, I decided to do something I've been doing on and off since last year's Met Gala - dressing up the characters! Just because Fairest is focused on Queen Levana, I decided to focus on the ladies (though I may have to think about how to dress our favorite The Lunar Chronicles men at some point...).

Now, since the Golden Globes happened just last Sunday, I decided to choose the dressier outfits for these five main characters (+ one bonus supporting character) from among the outfits worn that night. (All credit for those photos here.) The casual outfits, on the other hand, are just looks that I put together on my on. Without further ado, check out my style choices for Cinder, Scarlet, Cress, Winter, Iko & Queen Levana!

QUEEN LEVANA
Casual Look || Julianne Moore in Givenchy

CINDER
Casual Look || Allison Williams in Armani Prive

SCARLET
Casual Look || Anna Kendrick in Monique Lhuillier

CRESS
Casual Look || Felicity Jones in Christian Dior

WINTER
Casual Look || Lupita Nyong'o in Giambattista Valli

IKO
Casual Look || Emma Stone in Lanvin

Hope you enjoyed seeing how I would style each of these gals in modern-day clothing! I had a lot of fun coming up with outfits that would match their personalities and appearances. Let me know what you think of my picks - and which one is your favorite!

For more about The Lunar Chronicles, you can become a fan of the series on Facebook or on Tumblr (where you can find the tour schedule, wallpaper, etc)! You can also check out Marissa's blog, follow her on Twitter or become a fan of hers on Facebook.

Now, without further ado, here's the giveaway! The team at Macmillan has generously offered to provide 1 paperback copy each of Cinder, Scarlet + Cress for one lucky reader.

Note: This giveaway is open to residents of the US/CN ONLY, for those ages 13 and up. The personal information (mailing address) collected will only be submitted to the publisher for mailing purposes and will not be kept otherwise.
