The Best Dressed At The Grammy’s 2017

If there was any award show that I could go to and strut down the red carpet it would be the Grammy’s. This award show is filled with tons of music, celebs, and of course fashion.  To me, the Grammy’s is the chance to experiment with style and wear something unique and funky.  So I love when I see my favorite celebs take some fashion risks on the red carpet.  Keep on scrolling to read all about my favorite looks from last night’s big event.

Solange Knowles

Solange Knowles dazzled in a metallic gold dress by Gucci.  The Knowles family can do no wrong like did you watch Beyoncé’s performance? I was left speechless.  Anyway, back to Solange’s dress.  I like how her dress features some of the hottest trends this season like the beautiful pleated design and exaggerated sleeve.  Her dress is glamorous but at the same time playing around with different shapes and structures.

Katy Perry

I can’t get over Katy Perry’s new hair.  I love the platinum blonde color.  She is totally jumping on the bandwagon that blondes do have more fun.  To be honest, at first Katy’s dress did not make my best dressed list, but after looking more closely at her Tom Ford dress, I fell in love.  Again this is the perfect dress for the Grammy’s because it is fun and different, mixing sparkles and feathers.  I think the pink and rose gold colors really made her blonde hair pop.  The only adjustments I would make to this dress is having the feathers start higher up on the waist to avoid an awkward silhouette.

Paris Jackson

Paris Jackson was the big breakout star at the Grammy’s.  Everyone was amazed by her beautiful red carpet look.  I loved the crisscross detail of her Balmain dress.  Not to mention the beautiful jewel toned colors with the perfect amount of sparkle.  The slits and cutouts of her dress created a beautiful illusion that leaves you asking is it a jumpsuit or a dress?

Laverne Cox

Sigh, if only I could be this fierce. I am obsessed with Laverne Cox’s Bryan Hearns leather dress number.  This is what the Grammy’s is about, taking risks and she certainly knows how to nail the edgy look.  I loved how the dress features that cage detail from top to bottom to show off the perfect amount of skin, while leaving a little to the imagination.  Also, did you see her eye makeup?  Her bold, graphic smokey eyes with some jewel appliques outlining her lashes was just a work of art.  She nailed her look from head to toe.

Lea Michelle

I was not aware of Lea Michelle’s beautiful halter crop top and skirt duo by Roberto Cavalli until I was reading online articles recapping the fashion of last night.  Some celebs chose to expose extra skin with a high slit or a lot of cleavage, but I like how Lea picked a high waisted skirt and crop top to expose a portion of her torso.  For me, this look was perfect for the Grammy’s, being sexy and fun.  I also liked how her look featured a dark, lacy floral pattern for an edgy take on the usual feminine print.

Halsey

Halsey, I totally love your tribute to the 90s with your silky, shiny cobalt blue track suit by Christian Wijnants.  Just like Halsey said on the red carpet, sometimes you don’t feel like wearing a dress and I couldn’t agree more.  I admire your choice to be different and show off this sporty look.  She is totally channeling the popular pajama trend this season, but of course this is one pair of sexy pajamas.  She really trusted her boob tape to keep her from having a wardrobe malfunction.  Not to mention she finished off her killer look with a long, silver diamond chain.  Now this is fashion.

Lady Gaga

Take that you body shamers! Lady Gaga had no problem standing up to all those who criticized her body at the Super Bowl when she confidently paraded down the red carpet in barely nothing.  She was ready to rock and roll in her all black, leather two piece assemble by Alex Ulichny finished with fishnet stockings and over the knee leather boots.  She was not afraid to show lots of skin or under boob and because she is Lady Gaga she nailed this look.  Her aviator sunglasses, pink hair, and bold lips totally gave her the rock star vibe.  And she totally lived up to those expectations when she performed on stage with Metallica and proceeded to crowd surf.  You go Gaga!

And that’s a wrap for my roundup of the best dressed at the Grammy’s. Once again, the Grammy’s wow me every year. The talent at this year’s show was incredible. If you need me I will be re-watching Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, and Ed Sheeran’s performance over and over again. Talk to you all soon!

The Best And Worst Dressed At The Academy Awards 2016

The end of February means a few things… spring break is near, it stays light longer, no more snow (hopefully), and most importantly the Academy Awards.  I sometimes get the Sunday night blues, but not on the Sunday when the Academy Awards are on.

This year, I was surprised at how many movies I knew.  Honestly, I did not see one movie nominated but I knew the plot and the characters, so that’s all that counts right?  Fashion aside, I am so happy Leonardo DiCaprio won his first Oscar; it was about time, but for some reason, I had a feeling he was not going to win (anyone else have that same feeling?).  Although, I did not stay up to see him accept his award, I checked Twitter when I randomly woke up in the middle of the night at 3 A.M. and was so pleased he was the winner.

Now back to fashion. I have to admit I was not overly impressed with the looks on the red carpet. Nothing blew me away, but that doesn’t mean I don’t have a best and worst dressed list, so below you will find my picks of celebrities who scored a 10 on their fashion game and who completely missed the mark.

Best Dressed:

Jennifer Lawrence-  J. Law has done it again. Another red carpet looked she nailed.  Her flesh tone gown with black lace overlay by Dior was perfect for such a glamorous event like the Oscars.  Plus her minimal accessories and blonde bob really tied her whole look together.  Her new blonde doo, has really inspired me to dye my hair that shade.  Who knows maybe in my next post, I will be a blonde.

 

Charlize Theron-  Va va voom. I f I had Charlize’s confidence I would totally be modeling that bright red Dior dress with a really deep neckline.  Her plunging neckline almost exposes her belly button, but stops at the perfect length, leaving a little to the imagination.  Plus her diamond necklace adds just the right amount of bling, without drawing to much attention from the dress.  Who says you can’t wear red on the red carpet?  Charlize totally puts that myth to rest.

Lady Gaga-  I think Lady Gaga just started a new trend with her look, the pant dress.  Her Brandon Maxwell cream color pantsuit really pops on the red carpet.  She looks so classy.  Plus her minimal jewelry really allows her pantsuit to shine.  Lastly, her bronze smoky eye is the perfect touch to her look. You never fail to amaze me Lady Gaga.


Rachel McAdams –  
Two words to describe Rachel’s look are fierce and sexy.  I am obsessed with her August Getty Ateiler emerald colored dress.  By now, you should know that any emerald color dress will steal my heart.  The halter neckline and high slit was perfect for the red carpet.  Her look was the right amount of sexiness and glamour.

Naomi Watts- Naomi’s Armani Prive dress reminds me of the most gorgeous starry night sky.  The royal blue and deep purple shades shined on the red carpet.  In my opinion, one trend that will never go out of style on the red carpet is crystals and sequins.

 

Saoirise Ronan- If I only had to choose one best-dressed celeb on the red carpet, it would go to Saoirise.  I am obsessed with her emerald, sparkling dress by Calvin Klein.  Just like Naomi Watts she is rocking the sequins trend, and just like Rachel McAdams she looks stunning in the emerald shade.  Plus, Saoirise’s emerald accessories and green smokey eye really puts the finishing touches on her look.  If I had the privilege to walk the red carpet, you better believe that my dress would look very similar to Saorise’s look.

Margot Robbie – Margot’s body forming, gold snakeskin, Tom Ford dress reminds be of the trophy the lucky Academy Award winners bring home.  So it makes sense that her shiny gold dress with a deep, plunging neckline made my top dressed list.

 

Worst Dressed:

Heidi Klum-  Yes, the purple hues of did clash with the red carpet, but it wasn’t the color of her dress that bothered me the most, it was that awkward puffy one sleeve detail.  Plus, the two floral decals did not help the look, but made the eye drawn to the unfortunate details of the dress.  Heidi’s Versace dress just needs to shed all the layers and then maybe I will reconsider the look.

Kate Winslet-  Of course, when I am collecting my thoughts on my best and worst dressed list, I like to read other fashion articles to hear their opinions.  I have to agree with USA Today when they described Kate’s Ralph Lauren dress as a “wet garbage bag.”  Plus her reflective dress does not photograph well. Better luck next time!

 

Reese Witherspoon-  The reason why Reese made my worst dressed list is because her Oscar de la Renta dress was just so plain and boring.  I feel like I have seen this dress so many times.  Plus the tailoring of the dress did not fit her body.  Reese is such a beautiful woman that she could rock almost anything.  I wish she took the time to really step out of her fashion comfort zone and try something new and fresh.

Cate Blanchett-  Her Armani dress could have worked if it was just a different color.  I give her props for taking a risk and wearing a dress that did make her stand out from the crowd.  Her dress is high-fashion especially with the hand-sewn flowers, feathers, and crystals.  But, I believe the pastel blue just makes her look like one of those Peep marshmallow Easter candies.  Maybe if her dress was black or a deep burgundy color it would have worked.  Maybe I just inspired Armani?

 

Kerry Washington-  Kerry’s Versace dress leaves me confused.  Is the top of the dress made of leather? What are those awkward black lines by her waist?  This dress was not made for the red carpet of the Academy Awards.  I did like her fierce thigh-high leg slit, but wish she wore a totally different dress. Kerry totally missed the mark while combining glam and edginess.

Olivia Wilde-  I give her props for showing all that skin.  I do like Olivia’s Valentino dress, but the reason why it is on my worst list is because of all the skin exposed.  She should have stuck to either showing her back, side boob, or the deep neckline.  Not all three.  Plus that chocker just attracts the eyes to her cleavage, which is not the point of the Oscars.  If this dress had a few tailing adjustments it would be moved to my best list.

Emily Blunt –  Maybe I am biased because no matter how hard I try I can’t pull off blush shades, but I feel like it is such a hard color for anyone to pull off and Emily Blunt was no exception.  The light, pastel pink just washes her out and the random pops of diamonds throughout her dress was just awkward and not visually appealing.  Her Prada designed dress was just not flattering from head to toe.

And that’s a wrap.  Thank you so much for reading.  I love sharing my thoughts with you all. Let me know who made your best and worst dressed list for the 2016 Academy Awards.

The Best And Worst Dressed At The Golden Globes 2016

Last year, my very first post on my blog was my round up of the best and worst dressed from the Golden Globes, so it is tradition to share my thoughts on this year’s fashion at the Golden Globes.

My fashion senses were tingling on Sunday while watching the 73rd Golden Globes Award Show.  Next to Christmas, my favorite time of the year has to be award season.  Nothing beats watching the celebrities strut on the red carpet while wearing elaborate gowns.

For the most part, every celebrity stunned in their designer dresses and set a high expectation for future award shows.  I noticed a few popular trends at the Golden Globes, including capes, cut outs, hues of reds and pinks, plunging necklines, and pockets.

Someday I hope to be one of the correspondents reporting from the red carpet, but for right now I’ll use my blog to share my fashion do’s and don’ts from the red carpet.  Keep on reading to see which celebrities hit a homerun when it came to their style and which celebrities should have reconsidered their dress choice.

 

Best Dressed

Lady Gaga- After seeing Lady Gaga perform at Madison Square Garden a few years ago, Lady Gaga will forever have my heart.  I am a huge Lady Gaga fan and so happy she took home her first Golden Globe. She looked outstanding in her black velvet Versace dress.  Her dress featured a sweetheart neckline and a fitted corset, giving her an hourglass shape.  She completed her glamorous look with of course diamonds, a curly up do, and lots of lashes.  I was so happy to see Lady Gaga choose a more sophisticated look, instead of wearing a meat dress like she did at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards.

 

Amy Adams- I was so glad to see some color on the red carpet.  I am a huge fan of Amy Adam’s daring blood orange Versace gown.  The bold orange color with the perfect amount of sparkle looked beautiful with her hair color and skin tone.  After seeing her dress, I really hope this orange shade becomes a huge trend for upcoming award shows and the spring season.

 

Laverne Cox- Laverne Cox looked fierce in her pure white, figure hugging dress by Elizabeth Kennedy.  I am a huge fan of her classic look.  Sometimes simplicity is the way to go when it comes to the red carpet.  I love how she accessorized with emerald colored jewelry and a vampy lip color. Perfection!

 

Jenna Dewan Tatum- Jenna Dewan Tatum’s dress resembled a starry night sky.  The deep blue dress embellished with sequins is by Zuhair Murad and certainly made a statement on the red carpet.  I love her dress because it features two of the hottest trends this season, the plunging neckline and pockets. Plus, every red carpet needs some sparkle.

 

Olivia Wilde- Olivia Wilde can do no wrong when it comes to fashion.  Her form fitting, burgundy, sequins dress by Michael Kors, featured a risky low neckline.  I appreciate her choice to accessorize with a statement necklace that complimented the deep red color of her dress.  I also loved her eggplant and burgundy shimmery eye shadow, which is a colorful take on the typical smokey eye.

 

Jaimie Alexander- If I had to only choose one best dressed celebrity, my award would have to go to Jaimie Alexander.  Her dress designed by Genny was stunning.  I am obsessed with the rich jewel toned emerald color, deep v neckline, and the pockets.  The pattern of her dress is so abstract and eye-catching. Also her smokey eye is on point and really makes her eyes pop.  Perfection from head to toe.

 

Worst Dressed

Cate Blanchett- What is up with this dress? There is just way too much going on.  Cate Blanchett’s dress by Givenchy features silk, sheer paneling, and fringe.  I don’t know where to look.  Plus the pastel pink color is just wrong.  Better luck next time.

 

Katy Perry- Between the Bump It in her hair and this tight dress by Prada, Katy Perry tops my worst dressed list.  I really hate the color of her dress because it reminds me of a Pepto Bismol bottle . She better bring her “A” game to the Grammy’s because her look at the Golden Globes was anything but fabulous.

 

Natalie Dormer- Natalie Dormer’s J. Mendel dress would have been better if it did not include the awkward off the shoulder look and black neckpiece.  Awkward, undone, and mismatched are a few words I like to use to describe her look.

 

Regina King- Regina King’s dress looks more like a Halloween costume than a Golden Globes gown. Her Krikor Jabotian dress features a white cape and chunky gold sequins.  Her dress is outrageous!  I never thought this was possible, but there is way to much sparkle and sequins.

 

Rooney Mara- I am all for fashion risks and unique looks, but Rooney Mara’s Alexander McQueen dress leaves me speechless and not in a good way.  First, the pale pink color blends in with her skin tone, making her look washed out.  Plus the ruffles of her dress look like her dress went through a shredder, which is never a good look.

 

Kate Hudson- The only thing on point is Kate Hudson’s abs.  Other than that, I do not love her Michael Kors crop top and matching skirt outfit.  The nude sparkly color washes her out.  Plus that random piece of fabric around her neck just confuses me.

And that concludes my 2016 Golden Globes fashion recap. Stay tuned for more best and worst dressed posts. Let me know in the comments below what celebrity looks were your favorite or were questionable.
