Best and Worst Dressed at the 2014 American Music Awards

The American Music Awards took place last night in Los Angeles, and just like every awards show, music’s biggest stars came out to celebrate their achievements in designer gowns and gorgeous bling. Let’s discover the best and worst stars!

Selena Gomez is all grown up! The songstress wowed with a “business in the front, party in the back” gown by Armani Prive, She went for Neil Lane sparklers and kept her hair and makeup simple.

Another beauty in black! After taking some time off to concentrate on her baby boy, Fergie hit the red carpet in a Halston Heritage gown, bearing a thigh high slit. I love the combination of her hair with the bold gold accessories and those black strappy heels are to die for!

Julianne Hough dazzled in a bright coral Zuhair Murad gown. With a blend of bright orange and gold, it felt as if summer was back on the red carpet! Now if only Julianne had styled her hair differently..

Kate Beckinsale is simply breath-taking in a plunging white Kaufman Franco gown! Her hot factor is sky high thanks to this serpentine silver Bvlgari choker. Hands down, best dressed of the night!

I know that Jennifer Lopez can practically wear anything, but there is no excuse for wrapping a satin bed sheet around your body and calling it a dress! Yes JLo’s body is obviously better than ever, her skin is glowing, and her Louboutins are fabulous, but what’s going on from her neck to her ankles is a disaster!

After her winning look at this year’s Emmy’s, Heidi Klum goes back to high slits and cutouts in a monochrome Versace combo with- get this- platform heels with turquoise and pink detailing. FAIL!

Someone’s ready for New Year’s Eve! A lot of gold and too much face paint, this is a Lanvin FAIL for Olivia Munn.

A the risk of sounding like your mom, all I’m going to say is: This is 17 year old Kylie Jenner wearing Alexandre Vauthier. Wonder what 18 will hold for her..

If you thought Amber Rose’s getup at the VMAs was disastrous, wait till you see what Bleona Qereti wore to the AMAs! Qereti is a high profile Albanian singer who decided to show up  in a see-through fishnet mesh “dress” to the awards show. A slinky thong and silver nipple pasties completed this fashion crime.

Best Dressed at the 2014 MET Gala

The MET Gala took place last night in New York City. This year’s theme was Charles James: Beyond Fashion.

In case you’re not aware, Charles James was a technologically advanced couturier who rose to fame in the 1950s. Originally British, James was known as the architect of fashion; some of his designs were so structured that they could stand on their own. All these attributes led Charles James to become extremely popular to the extent that he was dubbed “America’s first Couturier”.

But enough history for now! Let’s get to the Best Dressed at last night’s gala!

Blake Lively 

She’s backkk! Ever since Blake Lively said “I Do” to Ryan Reynolds, she’s shown a more mature style on the red carpet, wearing understated outfits and covering up her assets. But last night, Blake brought the glamour back to the red carpet and stunned in a sparkly Gucci Première gown. From her soft waves to her jewels, Blake was absolutely flawless!

Gisele Bundchen

No surprise here! Gisele continues her winning streak at the MET for yet another year by wearing a breath taking black gown by Balenciaga. The Brazilian model kept everything else simple and simply accessorized with a pair of Fred Leighton emerald earrings.

Victoria Beckham

Both Mr. and Mrs. Beckham wowed New York City last night! Posh wore a beautiful white column dress from her own Victoria Beckham collection while David matched his wife’s ensemble perfectly in a black and white Ralph Lauren Black Label suit.

Naomi Watts

We all know that this Australian beauty can do no wrong on the red carpet! Watts waltzed onto the red carpet in this Givenchy partly sheer stunner. The actress made sure to let the dress make a statement by keeping her accessories and hairstyle fairly simple.

Beyoncé

Beyoncé sure knows how to bring glamour to the MET. Mrs. Carter made a fashion statement in her Givenchy Couture gown that was measured to fit her body perfectly! Queen B accessorized with a matching beaded black head piece and Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

Reese Witherspoon

With so many pink hued gowns on the red carpet, it was hard to pick a favorite! There’s no denying that Reese Witherspoon looked like a winner in this Stella McCartney fushia gown. It’s also so refreshing to see Reese look this stunning, especially after her train wreck ensemble at the Golden Globes earlier this year.

Kim Kardashian 

Hate her or love her, this must be said: Kim Kardashian looked amazing at last night’s event. The reality star ditched her much loved skin tight- curve hugging- over plunging outfits in favor of this navy Lanvin creation. For once in a really really long time, Kim looks classy and understated! Kim also gets bonus points for changing her strappy sandals at the last minute in favor of these black stunners! Here’s hoping she keeps this up for her wedding, rumored to be taking place next week in Paris.

The annual Costume Institute Gala- also known as the Met Gala- is upon us again! Fashion’s major social event takes place annually at New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art.

This year’s event will take place on May 6th, and in anticipation of the big day, here are the top 10 most memorable gowns from the Gala!

Camilla Belle hit the 2012 ceremony in a Ralph Lauren Spring/Summer 2012 gown. While I’m not so sure about the hot chocolate lip color, Belle’s ivory tulle beaded dress was stunning and her Ralph Lauren art- deco jewels helped her nail the look!

Never the one to shy away from showing some skin, Gossip Girl’s Blake Lively slipped into this Versace gown for the 2009 Met Gala. The actress flaunted her cleavage and put her legs on full display in this chiffon teal gown. Crystal detailed Versace sandals completed her look.

Diane Kruger chose this Jason Wu two toned gown for the 2011 Gala. Her dress consisted of an embellished long sleeve bodice and black skirt with a hip high slit. Side parted waves and a red lip completed her glamorous look.

Fashion’s IT girl Emma Stone wore this Lanvin creation for the 2012 MET Gala in NYC. The over the knee hemline and fun details were enough to land her on the best dressed list last year. If only Emma skipped the boring black pumps and went for some killer sandals!

Kate Beckinsale is always stunning on the red carpet, so it’s no surprise that she was just that at the 2010 event. Beckinsale wore a Marchesa tulle ball gown with a steel sparkling bodice and a full skirt. Adding even more glamour to her extravagant look? Her foot long train!

Inspired by her role in The Princess Diaries, Anne Hathaway wore a glamorous Valentino gown for the 2010 Met Gala. The sparkling champagne color created a great contrast with her skin and the full skirt added more drama to the look.

Zoe Saldana was a vision of simplicity and class at the 2010 Met Ball. The actress sparkled in this one sleeved navy gown courtesy of Calvin Klein. A classic updo and natural makeup completed her look!

A few months after welcoming baby Blue, Beyonce emerged on the 2012 Met Gala red carpet in this custom made Givenchy gown. From the sheer bodice, to the playful details, and not forgetting the purple feathered train, there are few other ladies in the world who can pull off Queen B’s look!

People magazine’s Most Beautiful Woman in the world knows that Stella McCartney‘s creations are made for the MET Ball. Gwyneth Paltrow stunned in this sequined nude gown by the British designer. Details included a thigh high slit that served as a reminder of the actress’ fabulous figure!

If there’s anyone who keeps getting it right year after year at the MET Ball, that person is non other than supermodel Gisele Bundchen! For the 2008 event, the Brazilian beauty sizzled in a soft pink Versace gown that showed plenty of skin. Two years later, Gisele went for a fierce look in a fringed Jason Wu mini that put her curves on full display.

The following year, Gisele was a vision of class and glamour in a voluminous Alexander McQueen scarlet gown and full skirt with raw edges. (check out her glossy hair!). She put on a skin tight Givenchy black dress with strappy in 2012 sandals proving that no one ever does it better than her at the MET Gala!

Red Carpet | The Tiffany & Co. Blue Book Ball!

One of my all time favorite brands- Tiffany & Co. – celebrated its annual publication of its Blue Book in New York City late last week.

 

TIF

 

The Tiffany Blue Book (as the publication is called) is the brand’s annual catalogue that shows the jeweler’s latest dazzling pieces in all their glamour and brilliance. What’s even more interesting is the fact that this Blue Book has been published yearly since 1845 and has been known as the first mail order catalogue to be distributed in the United States of America.

The very exclusive event took place at New York’s Rockefeller’s Center where a giant Tiffany Blue Box was erected and a blue light show lit the skies of the big city. Hollywood’s A list stars came out to celebrate the big night wearing stunning designer gowns and more importantly, they were decked out in thousands of carats from Tiffany’s 2013 diamond collection. Take a look!
