Best Dressed at The Grammy Awards

I adore watching the stars walk the red carpet for all the awards shows and especially love the Grammy’s because the dress code seems to be more fun. My picks for best dressed are listed below.

Gwen Stefani killed it in a black Versace jumpsuit with and fun sheer wave design in the bodice. Giuliana Rancic had an amazing long sleeve black dress by Steve Khalil that had peek a boo sleeves and a deep v front. Ariana Grande rocked Versace’s sexy, low back and silver mesh detailed gown. Taylor Swift funked it up with a high-low hemline gradient aqua blue dress by Elie Saab. These looks stood out to me and were really memorable. I love how fun they all were and well suited to each celebrity’s personality.

Award season is my favorite season here in Los Angeles because the town in buzzing with energy and I get to see the parties popping up all around my neighborhood. I love the shows themselves and hearing all the acceptance speeches, but the fashion is truly my favorite part.

Gorgeous Girls on the Golden Globes Red Carpet

The Golden Globes took place in Beverly Hills tonight at the Beverly HIlton hotel. Living in LA is always fun during award season because you get to see the event planners setting up the venues for the official after parties and feel like you are part of the action, even if you just end up watching at home.

My favorite part of the awards show is the red carpet. I love seeing all the actresses and actors in their gowns and suits. Working in the industry, I also love to see the looks my friends (the glam squad) have created to help the stars work the carpet as the best version of themselves. The trend on the carpet this year seemed to be plunging necklines, white, and metallic silver. Some of my favorite looks were Emma Stone, Kate Beckinsale, Kate Hudson, Allison Williams, Katherine Heigl, Anna Kendrick, Sienna Miller and Jessica Chastain. Emma wore a Lanvin jumpsuit with a crystal encrusted bodice and a large black bow in the back, and Mara Roszak did her hair. Kate Beckinsale wore a plunging Elie Saab dress with oversized dangling earrings that I am obsessed with. Kate Hudson stood out in a white Versace number that featured a deep V neckline with cutout sides with ladder like crystal beading that fit her like a glove. Jessica Chastain rocked metallic Versace dress and oozed sex appeal with her side swept hairstyle. Allison Wiliams wore a red embellished gown by Armani Prive and did anything but blend into the carpet. Katherine Heigl owned the simple silhouette created by Zac Posen in navy blue. Anna Kendrick looked lovely in her Monique Lhuillier dress with red beading, reminding me of a fairytale princess, which was fitting since she starred in “Into the Woods,” Sienna Miller stayed true to her bohemian chic signature look in her Miu Miu gown with a plunging neckline, sheer embellished back and beaded trim. These stars for me were the best dressed and true to the trend of the red carpet.

I can’t wait to watch E! News to see who made their list and find out if I am on point with the experts. I also have to give a shout out to Kevin Spacey for his win for “House of Cards” because I am newly obsessed with the show. Back to reality for all of hollywood tomorrow, but only for a short time because the Oscars are around the corner and there are many other awards shows in between.

Pants at the People’s Choice Awards

Tonight was the People’s Choice Awards here in Los Angeles and a popular trend on the red carpet was pants.

The fashion statement appeared on celebrities wearing jumpsuits and full suitings. The women proved that men don’t always have to wear the pants. They rocked this look in an array of colors and styles. Comfort had to be part of the selection process when meeting with stylists to narrow down the options to finally choose the pant styles. Pockets are also helpful for stashing lipgloss for touch ups as well as Kings Hawaiian rolls as spoofed on the show. It was a play on skit on how no food or beverage was allowed in the room and how the celebrities were secretly stashing contraband food into the show. Having attended several of these shows, I can attest, you do get quite hungry and no food is served. I get it, boo hoo for princess problems, but still.

Back to the pantsuits…I really enjoyed seeing these few women stun on the red carpet in this empowering look and look forward to what the rest of award season has to offer.

2014 Emmy Awards- Red Carpet Arrivals

I love watching the red carpet arrivals for the award shows. The glitz and glam that goes into producing that final look before stepping out of the limo is something I am all too familar with working as a beauty agent. All the preparation is worth it for the moment the celebrity steps out of the limo and onto the red carpet to ooohhs and ahhhhs at their arrival. Fingers crossed, they make the best dressed and look of the week lists, and even better go home a winner of an award! I live for these moments and hope to attend one year.

I have put together a list of my favorite looks this year and am excited for the winners to be revealed. 

The best dressed celebrities in my book were as follow:

Sarah Hyland in Christian Siriano

Teen Spirit At The Teen Choice Awards

The Teen Choice Awards celebrity red carpet arrivals exuded teen spirit. My favorite look of the night were the cropped ensembles that have been turning up at every fashion event for quite some time. There was something special about the choice of this look for this particular event. 

It reminded me of my cropped cheerleading uniform I wore as a teenager in high school and the joy being part of the squad brought me. I enjoyed reminiscing about my early years through watching the red carpet coverage and am loving how all the trends of that time are back again. 

I have attached photos below of my favorite cropped looks from the awards that range from a sliver of skin peeking out, to full taunt tummy baring boldness. I purchased a cropped top and A-line skirt by the brand Parker that highlights a tiny sliver of skin, but I encourage you to be a daring as you like. Have fun with this look and be on trend.
