The fun award season is upon us. First off there were the TCA and now the most iconic music awards of the year: the MTV Video Music Awards. They are distinguished by the random moments and crazy events that have marked the history of the ceremony. Everyone always expects the unexpected and as anticipated they delivered, from wardrobe malfunction to a little bit of twerking. And let’s not forget the amazing fashion statements.
I absolutely loved how someway the looks took us back to the 90’s. First off upcoming artist Charli XCX performed during the red carpet with a feather cover up that just screamed Cher Horowitz. Following was Katy Perry who honored Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake’s 2001 all denim ensemble. The difference? This time Katy left it to Versace to design the custom made gown. To finalize the “throwback-fashion” Mrs. Amber Rose dared channel Rose McGowan 1999 look from Laura Dewitt that left very little to the imagination. Is it me or are we going back to the Clueless years? Yes please!
On the other hand, profuse stars choose classic all black looks. Some of these included Miley Cyrus, Kendall Jenner, Becky G and the cast of Orange Is The New Black. All of them looked stunning in the infinite color. Going the other way Rita Ora decided to go all red in a Jessica Rabbit gown that made her look voluptuous and sensual.
By now you may be guessing why the article is titled All hail the Queen right? Well personally there was one look that stole the show. It was so astonishing that it deserved a special tribute. The fit, the color, the fabric it was just perfection. It was non-other than Jennifer Lopez who wore a silver jaw-dropping Charbel Zoe dress. She was officially the queen of the red carpet. The cutout shimmering gown was simply spectacular. Now the real question is what was Casper Smart (also present at the VMA’s) thinking the whole night?
Last night the annual Teen Choice Awards took place in sunny California. This is one of my favorite award shows just because of the fun ensembles that the starlets wear. Obviously other high end awards like the Oscars and Emmy’s are great but too serious. Furthermore, the TCA let’s everyone dress up playfully, which makes the outfits more attainable for us the fans to wear. It includes all the young celebrities that are constantly fighting off each other (figuratively) to be the best dressed of the week on and off big Hollywood events.
To honor the last days of summer most starts wore crop tops which were the hit of the night. My favorites which include Chloe Moretz and Taylor Swift rocked the look in a way that will make you want to buy they’re outfits right away. I mean who doesn’t want to look like Tay-Tay during next Sunday fabulous brunch? Moreover, messy side braids were hitting it big on the red carpet. The hairdo made them look effortlessly flawless and complimented perfectly the whole look. The outfits seen on them looked like they all previously agreed to wear the same trend as a statement.
There were two outfits that just made me go oh-la-la and gag for more. Both of them were matching crop tops and pants (duh!). First runner up is Ms. Moretz with a stunning matching ensemble from Valentino. The red, black and white printed outfit is just breathtaking aside from the perfection that this girl is. She looked impeccable and topped it off with a red single sole sandal that will make you fall in love. Then there’s Vampire Diaries Nina Dobrev who’s been giving the fashion industry lots to talk about with her sense of fashion. With a Vionnet matching outfit that went just perfectly with the pink pumps she wore giving the ensemble that extra girly twist.
I guess we all feel like we should work on our abs and go shopping for some crop tops and shorts don’t you think?
Fashion is all about taking risks and finding a way to implement trends into your personal style. Most of us tend to rely on our safe zone. What do I mean by this? Most of the people wait until a trend has gone almost into the masses to implement it when we should really be fashion innovators or opinion leaders when it comes to a trend. This takes us to the latest fashion ititem: the leopard print sneaker.
Animal print has always been a classic look for as long as I can remember. Everyone has a different opinion on how to wear it so that it looks classy and fashionable. I personally love it and think it looks good as an accessory. It gives any ensemble a certain edge that makes you look fierce and sexy. When you mix this type of pattern with a very cool sneaker you get the ultimate fashion shoe.
Fashion bloggers and celebrities from Michelle Williams to Usher are sporting this edgy look on their day-to-day style. You can wear them with totally different styles from a very relaxed look with distressed jeans to a wild leather skirt or even a preppy look with a khaki skinny pant and a fitted blazer. If you still can’t seem to find yourself wearing this trend look at these photographs on how to style yourself and believe me you will be getting them on your next trip to the mall.
