Malibu Bow Wow

The sun may be going down on a hot evening, but glimpses of hot pinks and spicy oranges are still visible on the horizon. Is there anything better than an August sunset? That’s the scene that Lauren Conrad’s Malibu Island Spiced Rum Launch Party getup reminded us of. The former Hills star rocked our fashion fantasies in a floor-length, double-split gown the color of the night sky, but with her golden locks, fuchsia lips, and beige stilettos, there were hints of summer still visible in her style. To go along with her seductive evening outfit, we suggest Conrad stir up a Malibu Spiced Bow Wow. This daring drink combines dark bitters and tantalizing Malibu Island Spiced Rum with grapefruit juice for the perfect combination of dark and bright, just like Conrad’s ensemble, and just like a summer sunset!
