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…

The fashion world has been going nuts over the re- launch of a very popular at the start of the decade; I am talking about the matching velour Juicy Couture jumpsuit. Paris Hilton, Mariah Carey, Kim K, Brittany Spears, and many other celebs loved to model the Juicy Couture velour tracksuits back in the 2000s. It was because of these celebs, that at every birthday and Christmas I would always ask my parents for one of these most coveted fashion items. Sadly, I was never the girl rocking the popular hot pink tracksuit with the dangling J on the zipper. In fact, I was not mad at my parents for not buying me a Juicy jump suit; I loved wearing my knockoff velour suits from places like Old Navy and The Children’s Place. I could get like 10 jumpsuits for the price of one Juicy Couture tracksuit. But sadly, since I wore the jumpsuits without the J charm, I was not considered “cool,” oh well.   For $200, my parents would rather not spend it on a piece of fabric that was just a trend, and boy were they right because within a short time, the matchy match jumpsuit was no…

One of the many things I learned from spending two summers interning in New York City with prestigious fashion companies is that trends like to repeat themselves. Every season it seems like fashion trends in a particular decade come back again. Almost like the expression history repeats itself, it seems like fashion does too. This season is all about the 70s with the flared jeans, the 80s with patches (click here to see how I completely transformed a denim jacket with a few patches) and you can’t forget chokers for that 90s grunge. I always yell at my mom for not keeping any of her clothes from back in the day. She always responds by saying she didn’t know that 20/30 years later those trends would be huge. But luckily my mom and dad always share what they wore and what was popular back in the day. And when their memory about a certain trend is foggy the Internet is the best place to find inspiration. So keep on reading to time travel back to the 70s and embrace the flared jean trend.  Who else has been going bananas over the big Zara sale? It doesn’t help that I have…

When I was busy slaving over final papers and studying for final exams, some of my favorite celebrities and a bunch of famous people strutted their stuff on the red carpet at the annual Met Gala. Officially called the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Benefit, the Met Gala is the party of the year. When will it be my turn to receive a ticket to one of the hottest events in New York City? For now, I just get to admire everyone’s outfit through a computer screen and comment on the looks that took my breath away.             This year’s theme was inspired by the fashion exhibit Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology. This exhibit features fashion designers work that blends handmade and machine-made fashion. Each year, the Met Gala features a unique theme and guests are urged to showcase the theme in their elaborate outfits. Since this year’s theme focused on the future, I wasn’t shocked to see tons of metallic sequins, and just out of the ordinary looks. There were more best-dressed than worst dressed stars because I believe the Met Gala is the perfect time to take fashion risks. So keep on reading…

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…
