It’s finally that time of the year once again. Award season is upon us and along with it the fashion that amuses us all. The first show of the year is the acclaimed Golden Globe Awards, which were held at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills. The location by itself screams glamour at the highest expression. The red carpet did not disappoint either it was full of that Hollywood air.
At least for me personally the styles strutting down the red carpet are way better than last year. On the other hand, there were also a couple of disappointments for example my expectations for Lupita were extremely high. Don’t get me wrong I don’t think she looked bad I just wanted more from her. It can definitely be said that metallics and pure white ruled. I mean if you’re a star it feels pretty practical to play the part and dress up.
From the long list of good-looking ensembles I have two that made me feel like I was on cloud nine. Both of the looks completely opposite but both so amazing. The Into the Woods actress Emily Blunt who wore a Michael Kors pleated white gown wowed me. Her look was simple but it made her look like a total goddess definitely my favorite. She paired it up with stunning Lorraine Schwartz turquoise earrings and bracelet.
Right up behind her is queen of the red carpet and well queen of everything really, Mrs. Jennifer Lopez. She wore a breathtaking Zuhair Murad gown that has me going crazy. The gorgeous beaded silver dress had a beautiful cape and frontal slit not to mention the perfect low V-neck cut. Not to mention her perfect hair or tan she was the personification of the word diva.
We just started this season so will be seeing much more from these gals plus all the others that have yet to amaze us with their style. So excited to see what they have in store for us next. They make us feel like Cinderella isn’t just a fairytale.
We all love red carpets for the fashion (duh!) that celebrities bring. It is a competition of who wore the best dress and who looked prettier. On that note the mother of all red carpets went down last night: The Met Gala. It’s the most important fashion event of the year in which celebrities flaunt those couture dresses like the world is theirs. Huge names like Beyoncé, Marc Jacobs, and Sarah Jessica Parker are just a few of the stars that attended last night’s soirée.
For those of you that don’t know this event opens the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s yearly exhibit. This year is dedicated to America’s first couturier Charles James. Furthermore, the fundraiser brings together the elite crowd that has a passion for art and fashion. Depending on the theme of the exhibit the attendees choose the outfit honoring the designer portrayed. It’s like the Halloween in the fashion industry. You get to play dress up only that the costumes are high-end couture dresses by top designer.
My personal favorite, which is Mrs. Lupita kinda disappointed me. I was expecting so much from her and her look just didn’t give me the vibe of couture fashion red carpet. Most of my favorites where tones of pink from pale to Emma Stone’s Thakoon dress that was simple and elegant. The all time winner and breathtaking look goes to Karolina Kurkova in a stunning Marchesa gown. From all the starlets I would never imagine that Karolina would be the one who amazed us with her graceful look. A surprise is always fun and better yet when it’s about an outfit that takes your breath away.
Music’s biggest night was all about the shimmer, glitter and metallics. The artists took the best they had (aside from being amazing performers) to the red carpet on a night that’s about dressing to impress. Bringing they’re A game, top celebrities competed to receive the title of best dressed. Most of them did an amazing job and designers did not fail to impress.
Clever as always Katy Perry had the most creative and amazing dress. I saw this dress last week while peeking at the Spring 2014 couture shows and instantly thought it had something different and edgy about it. Other than that I also thought only someone sharp and out there could pull it off, whom better than Miss. Perry. The Valentino couture gown inspired by Verdi’s La Traviata had 1,600 hours worth of work done only on its embroidery. This was absolutely the perfect dress to wear at the Grammy’s.
Glowing, Ciara made an amazing entrance in an all gold Pucci gown. The soon to be mommy wore her baby bump revealing she’s expecting yet looking flawless and beautiful as ever. I got really impressed by John Legend’s wife supermodel Chrissy Teigen. She looked beautiful and super sexy in a gold ensemble and a V plunging neckline, she definitely made an impact as more than the wife of this amazing artist. Last but not least the hated and loved Taylor Swift. In my opinion she looked like the perfect Barbie doll. Her Gucci chain dress was just absolute perfection. She may get criticized for they way she makes music or her attitude but there is nothing bad to say about this look. She was enviable by every single girl.
All around, they went all out, creating the ambience of glamour and stardom.
