Last night the stars and designers came out to the annual Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Benefit Gala, where the theme of the night was “Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty” and paid tribute to the late-great designer Lee McQueen.
While the glitzy red carpet was filled with actresses, models, singers, and designers wearing one of McQueen’s designs, there were also many that weren’t but could’ve easily “stopped New York traffic”. It was tough, boy was it tough, but I was able to narrow down some of my favorites from the night. You might be surprised by some of my choices, you might not. You’ll probably agree with a lot of them — or you may not.
I enjoyed watching the many stars strut across the carpet in their gala best, but was also felt under whelmed by many, put off by some, and just “meh” about others. Then there were those who looked great, but just not MET Gala worthy. Everyone mentioned on the following list is obviously not in any of the above categories. Although there were several stunners, they just couldn’t make the list or else it would’ve been way too long to be worth a read. I hope these are worth it to you. [READ MORE]
The Academy Awards is the number one red carpet gala of the year. If you want to make a true fashionable lasting impression, you do it at the Oscars if you’re lucky enough to attend. That being said, it’s one thing to attend and another to be attending because of a nomination. If you’re up for an award, you better bring your A game! Even if you don’t bring home an award, you should still look “award winning”. A few actresses failed to accomplish an Oscar-worthy look last night, but a few did and I’ve included them in my Top 10 Best Dressed list below.
Beautiful dresses from some of my favorite designers were seen last night, but I can’t stop wondering why Zoe Saldana was the only star in a creation by Prabal Gurung – and why did I have to wait for an after party to see it? [READ MORE]
Fashion was on my mind for music’s biggest night at the Grammy Awards last night. My usual red carpet winners were on point and some of my favorites failed to deliver, but in the midst of a few failures I found 10 gems that I want to share with you. Here are my Top 10 Best Dressed picks of the evening!
1. Nicole Kidman in Jean Paul Gaultier
Oh my goodness. She wasn’t even nominated for anything and yet Nicole Kidman stole the thunder of so many artists when she hit the red carpet in her incredible strapless creation from Jean Paul Gaultier‘s spring 2011 haute couture collection. She even up-staged Rihanna who was in the same designer from the same collection! Her long strawberry locks perfectly cascaded down her shoulder and ever-so-often you’d see a pop of her amazing Manolo Blahnik jeweled sandals. Barely any jewelry was needed with this perfection, so Nicole opted for a golden cuff by Fred Leighton.
Last night at the start studded Screen Actor’s Guild (SAG) Awards the stars turned our and turned it up on the red carpet with some dazzling choices. While I had many favorites, I also had many dislikes. For the top ten of the looks I felt definitely were award winning, please read on.
1. Mila Kunis in Alexander McQueen
If I could be Mila Kunis for a day, it would’ve been last night. Not only did she look amazing in her Alexander McQueen gown, but her hair, make-up, and accessories were so on point. How she manages to always look sweet and sultry amazes me. I could just go on and on about how much I loved her look last night, but I’ll shut up and let you enjoy it yourself. Mila’s clutch was also by McQueen and her jewels were from Cartier. I wish I had a photo of her awesome Christian Louboutin ‘Balota’ platform sandals which were hidden beneath her gown.
The Golden Globe Awards last night were filled with happy tears, jeers, cheers, and amazing wins complete with glamorous fashion. I couldn’t wait to get my Top 10 “best dressed” list out, so without further ado…
1. Olivia Wilde in Marchesa
You know that $25,000 “Frrozen Haute Chocolate” dessert dish at Serendipity’s in New York City? Yeah, that’s what Olivia Wilde reminded me of at the Golden Globes this year. She was sparkly, luxe, and sinfully delicious as she walked the red carpet in her strapless embroidered ball gown by Marchesa. I knew when Olivia first emerged on camera that she’d be my favorite of the night, and I wasn’t proven wrong. Not-so-hidden beneath her gown – as she kept lifting the skirt to show them off – were a pair of epic metallic gold spike and crystal encrusted platform ankle boots by Christian Louboutin. She was truly golden last night.
We’re kicking off awards season! We’re only weeks away from the Oscars with two major shows in-between, and I think we’re off to the a good start with the People’s Choice Awards last night. I’ve listed my favorite looks and thoughts of the Top 5 Best of the night.
1. Kristen Stewart in Reem Acra
“Twilight” fans waited with baited breath for Kristen Stewart to hit the blue carpet at the awards last night only to find out that she was already in the building. Kristen and her co-stars Robert Pattinson (in Dries Van Noten) and Taylor Lautner (in Dolce & Gabbana) weren’t seen on camera until moments before the categories in which they were nominated were announced. I was stoked when Kristen went on-stage to accept her award for ‘Choice Actress’ because I was finally able to get a good look at her fabulous pearlized sequin chiffon blush mini dress from Reem Acra‘s spring 2011 collection.
