I watched the Teen Choice Awards…yeah I did. I may have not been a teen for a few years now, but I have no shame. While the awards were as expected nothing to fan-girl over, the clothes were! There was a wide variety of the same ‘ol-same ‘ol red carpet looks, but I did notice a few ladies really bringing their A-game, others continued their streak of fabulous, and some gave me a fresh look.
Below is the run-down of my favorites that you might agree with or you might want to tell me I’m insane for my choices. It is what it is. I may not be a teen anymore and therefore should probably have avoided watching the show all together, but fashion called my name. It’s funny how none of the ladies who made my ‘Best Dressed’ list are teens either, so maybe they should re-name this award show. [READ MORE]
ARE YOU READY FOR MORE GAGA? This September The CW network will be airing an exclusive interview special starring platinum-selling pop star and fashion icon Lady Gaga and legendary fashion designer Jean Paul Gaultier. In Gaga by Gaultier, produced by Dak Tirak and directed by Alex Fighter, the two sit down in their first-ever face-to-face meeting to discuss everything from her meteoric rise to fame; secret backstage details; her unique relationship with her fans; the absolute control she exercises on her image and business; deliberate provocation as a marketing tool; and her passionate love for fashion and art.
Gaga by Gaultier airs Monday, September 12 (8:00-9:15 p.m. ET) only on The CW.
Immediately following the special, a 45-minute sneak peek of the network’s upcoming and returning primetime shows will air. In The CW 2011 Fall Preview Special (9:15-10:00p.m. ET), hosted by Maggie Q (Nikita) and Kristoffer Polaha (Ringer), you’ll get a first look at what to expect this fall season with some of your favorite shows and new series such as Ringer, The Secret Circle, and Hart of Dixie.
A year goes by so fast! I feel like it was just yesterday that I was giving you the fashion run-down for the 2010 MTV Movie Awards, but here we are again. The awards last night were so unexpected and although that’s usually the case with any MTV event, I don’t think many were prepared for some of the ceremony antics. I won’t mention anything specific, especially not about two particular dudes kissing — and that those dudes were Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner. Gasp!
Let’s talk about fashion. I never expect major gowns or outstanding looks at the Movie Awards, which is good because that made the shockers of last night all the better. Check out my “Best Dressed” list of some seriously fabulous ladies below — some may even surprise you. [READ MORE]
…KRISTEN STEWART, MILA KUNIS OR LEIGHTON MEESTER?
Three heavy hitters in Hollywood all hit the red carpet at last night’s MTV Movie Awards in creations by the same designer! Leighton Meester arrived wearing a silver mirrored long-sleeve dress from the latest fall collection by Balmain that everyone gushed over. It was easily the favorite of the night until fans and reporters practically got whiplash when soon after, “Twilight” beauty Kristen Stewart stunned in a safety pin embellished red-hot leather dress. Not only was the dress strapless, but the risqué hem made the 21-year-old actress appear to have legs that went on for days.
When Mila Kunis joined her “Friends with Benefits” co-star Justin Timberlake on stage during the show to present the ‘Best Male Performance’ award to Robert Pattinson, we noticed that Mila was also in a fall look from the fashion house. The “Black Swan” actress switched up her look – but didn’t hold back from the glamour – in a longsleeve black top and super tight, ultra mini metallic skirt.
We thought all of the ladies looked incredible, but who do YOU think rocked Balmain best? [READ MORE]
The fashion excitement is brewing! Monday night is the annual Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) Awards in New York City, and some of our favorite designers will be praised for their excellence in the fashion industry. Among the honors of the night, Lady Gaga will be given The Fashion Icon Award for being a ‘fashion revolutionary impacting style today’.
Joseph Altuzarra, Ashley Olsen & Mary-Kate Olsen, and Prabal Gurung are nominated for the Swarovski Award for Womenswear, while Alexander Wang, Phillip Lim, and Robert Geller are for Menswear. We’re especially excited to find out the winner of Womenswear Designer of the Year as our favorites Alexander Wang, Jack McCollough & Lazaro Hernadez for Proenza Schouler, and Marc Jacobs are up for it.
Liv Tyler will arrive in Proenza Schouler with Jack McCollough & Lazaro Hernadez, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn‘s Ashley Greene will attend with Michael Kors, Kirsten Dunst is coming with Patrik Ervell, and Kerry Washington will attend with Calvin Klein Collection’s Francisco Costa. We’re looking forward to seeing the amazing dresses on these stars as well as all of those not yet announced.
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.
