Best & Worst Dressed at the 2015 SAG Awards!

It was a night of glitz and glamour as actors honored their fellow actors in Los Angeles on Sunday.

Here are the most memorable gowns from the evening along with those we all really want to forget!

Although this look is nowhere close to her breath-taking sighting 2 weeks ago, Julianne Moore dazzles once again in Givenchy. Although I’m not a fan of the tank top design and the somewhat messy hair, the emerald color is simply stunning and the intricate beading is flawless, and those purple Chopard earrings are not so bad either!

Reese Witherspoon continues her winning red carpet streak and shows up in a custom-made Giorgio Armani white one-sleeved gown. The blond beauty adds major bling thanks to 3.5 million dollars worth of Harry Winston diamonds.

Modern Family’s Julie Bowen makes her return to the red carpet thanks to a flawless design by George Hobeika. The flirty floral patterned design hugs the actress’ frame and compliments it perfectly.

Red carpet darling Naomi Watts wows in an off-the-shoulder navy Balenciaga gown. Once again, the actress flaunts her perfect diamonds from the BVLGARI along with a matching clutch from the Italian brand.

The stunning Khaleesi- also known by her real name, Emilia Clarke walks the carpet with so much sophistication and poise. The uber sexy Brit stuns in a black and navy Donna Karan gown and perfect Cartier jewels.

Jennifer Aniston gives Sofia Vergara a run for her money and takes a deep plunge in a vintage Galliano paisley print gown. The “Cake” actress adds her favorite gold body chain and goes for a blow-dry that just works.

In turn, newly engaged Sofia Vergara drops jaws in a killer Donna Karan Atelier red corset and flowing train combo. The Modern Family actress kept her hair simple and accessorized with her stunning engagement sparkler.

Emma Stone is an absolute winner on the red carpet! She takes a major risk and shows up in a Dior Haute Couture tuxedo jacket dress that is absolutely flawless! The actress keeps her hair and make-up simple and slips into a pair of sexy strappy Louboutins to complete her Best Dressed look.

Felicity Jones chose a beautiful Balenciaga design for the SAGs. It’s too bad that she selected a powder pink version of the gown, because the color completely washes her out.

Claire Danes may not be the train-wreck she was at the Golden Globes, but that doesn’t make her look any better. This Marc Jacobs halter design could have interesting if it weren’t for that busy contrasting belt and stone accents on the sides- yes stone accents!

If you’re feeling an intolerable urge to rip-off Julia Roberts‘ weird looking satin-like pelvis? “pockets”, rest assured, you’re not alone. Roberts’ Givenchy jumpsuit’s tailoring is completely off and those black peep-toes look one size too big/worn out!

Keira Knightley: still pregnant, still on the worst dressed list. Although the shade of purple of this Erdem gown is amazing against her skin-tone, Knightley once again chooses to hide her baby bump under layers and layers of unnecessary fabric! Impatiently waiting for this once fashion icon and Chanel darling to wow us again!

And last but not least, Modern Family’s Ariel Winter brings the teenage cleavage to the SAGs red carpet courtesy of a winter white Zac Posen gown. Mind you, the actress is only 16 years old and although I read somewhere that she has trouble dressing for her body type, this look is too much dress and a whole lot of face paint for someone who is obviously going out on a school night!

Trends | Military Pride Still Going Strong!

August 1st is Army Day in Lebanon and on this occasion I thought it would be fun to write a military inspired post. From Marc Jacobs to Burberry to my favorite Victoria Beckham, (take a look at Mrs. Beckham’s collection below!) the military trend has been taking the world’s runways by storm in the past few seasons and there are no signs of it slowing down!

Fun flirty items like Rihanna’s print short-sleeved button down are a great way to inject a military feel into your wardrobe. Go fierce yet stay feminine in an olive colored pencil skirt with gold detailing like Alexa Chung did. Gwen Stefani and Kim Kardashian also adopted this trend; sticking to her signature style, Gwen wore printed pants while Kim went for a Burberry jacket with black accents.

If you want to go for this trend, always remember to mix one military inspired piece that stands out, but keep the rest of your look simple. You may consider combat boots, cargo skinny jeans, or even a coat. Take note from the late Princess Diana who sported this white jacket with gold detailing from back in the day. (just make sure to pass on the headpiece ;) )

Happy Army Day Everyone!

Fashion Fails | Worst Dressed at the MET Gala

We’ve seen the good, and now it’s time to unveil the ugly! While some celebrities nailed the punk theme, others just took it a little too far! Here they are:

Anne Hathaway in vintage Valentino: We know you’re trying to show off your new platinum do’ Anne, but it’s so hard to concentrate on your hair because all we can see are those distracting sheer panels and furry cuffs from your dress!

 

Anne H

 

Elizabeth Banks in Atelier Versace and custom “Elizabeth” by Brian Atwood sandals: While this look could have worked for her role as Effie Trinket in “The Hunger Games”, the shinny gold tux proved to be too much for the MET red carpet!

 

Elizabeth Banks

 

Kristin Stewart in Stella McCartney: There are so many things wrong with this jumpsuit; from the maroon color to the volumes, KStew looks lost somewhere in this outfit. Also not helping her look was her choice of eyeshadow!

 

KStew

 

Karlie Kloss in Louis Vuitton: Maybe the Victoria’s Secret angel should have went for a punk inspired bikini instead of this awful and unflattering Louis Vuitton dress!

 

Karlie Kloss

 

Katy Perry in Dolce & Gabanna: While Katy Perry’s outfit choices are usually interesting, this was just too much. From the jewel encrusted dress to the crown (yes crown!), Perry should have known that if the characters on “Game of Thrones” wouldn’t wear this, then neither should she!

 

Katy Perry

 

Ashley Olsen: While it remains unclear who designed Ashley’s dress, what’s for sure is that she looked like the little angel statue my family uses for the manger at Christmas time!

 

Ahley Olsen

 

Madonna in custom-made Givenchy by Ricardo Tisci: Seriously Madonna! You’re 54! If you’re not going to start putting pants on now, when will you?!

 

Madonna

 

Beyoncé in custom-made Givenchy by Ricardo Tisci: Looking like she was doing a dress rehearsal for her music video for “Bow Down B*****s” (especially in the shoe department), Beyoncé was a walking disaster in this matchy-matchy outfit- a far cry from her winning look at last year’s MET Gala.

 

Beyonce

 

Kelly Osbourne in Marc Jacobs: I don’t have the words to describe this look, but I will say that while I am a huge fan of Marc Jacobs, this dress just did not work!

 

Kelly Osbourne

 

Kim Kardashian in custom-made Givenchy by Ricardo Tisci: Having been publicly banned from the MET Gala over the years by Anna Wintour , Kim reportedly only received an invite for being Kanye West’s gf. I was actually looking forward to seeing what she would wear following so many fashion faux pas throughout her pregnancy. Instead, she looked like a big pile of flowers that needed to be watered. (gloves included!) Let’s hope Kimye stay together until next year so she can try to redeem herself!

Spotted | Anna Wintour & Marc Jacobs Wear Matching Prada Coats

Two of fashion’s most celebrated icons in America were spotted at The Great Gatsby New York Premiere wearing matching Prada fur coats.

That’s right! Both Anna Wintour- Vogue’s editor in chief and infamous fashion designer Marc Jacobs wore this Prada coat from the brand’s Spring/Summer 2013 collection for the exclusive soireé. The coat- made of fur- has white daisies plastered all over it, which helps in adding a Summery vibe to it.

While Wintour chose to wear hers over an evening gown, Jacobs threw it over jeans and sneakers- guess the designer isn’t afraid of taking fashion risks!

The only question remains, Who Wore It Better?!

Trends | Paris Fashion Week: Marc Jacobs Delivers Big for Louis Vuitton!

With the entire fashion world camped out in the City of Lights for Paris Fashion Week, the week long event draws to a close today with big names show-casing their Ready to Wear Autumn/Winter 2013 collections.

Louis Vuitton kicked off day 9 with Marc Jacobs unveiling his 3rd collection for the brand in a hotel corridor set that reflected the fashion house’s heritage as a luggage company. Models came out of the closed doors and walked the runway in chiffon tea dresses, boyfriend oversized coats and furs thrown on top.

Menswear fabrics and tweeds were primarily used for the collection, yet the soft curvy dresses and silk slips injected a feminine vibe to it. Supermodel Kate Moss closed out the show in a glamorous blue floor-length gown and matching undergarments in an appearance that surprised most of the audience.

Describing the collection in a few short words, Jacobs said that it reflects “an attitude of getting dressed up only to find the most glamorous destination is one’s own hotel room”.

 

Kate Moss

 

The show attracted a hefty amount of media coverage with the brand name even trending on Twitter, even until a few hours after the show and Elle calling it Louis Vuitton’s 10 star hotel.

 

Louis Vuitton The Times Fashion Finale

 

Next to present today is the Italian based brand Miu Miu and with Lebanese master Elie Saab set to close out the fashion week, I expect to see some red carpet worthy creations on the runway.

Stay tuned for more!
