Best & Worst Dressed at the Golden Globe Awards 2015!

Awards season officially kicked off on Sunday with the Golden Globes taking place in Los Angeles. After a very rainy weekend in the California city, the stars came out in their beautiful designer gowns to walk the red carpet. Several trends were noticed but the most memorable ones were metallics, reds, whites, and  blacks, as always. Let’s take a look at the most memorable gowns from last night and check out who was best and worst dressed.

Shiny Metallics

Hollywood’s A list dazzled in mesmerizing metallics! Julianne Moore led the way in a custom-made Givenchy strapless gown featuring ombre sequins and feathers at the hem and completed her look with Chopard jewels. The breath-taking Diane Kruger wowed in Emilia Wickstead! Although the German actress was all covered up, she still looked stunning while doing so! America’s sweetheart a.k.a Reese Witherspoon brought sexy back in a flawless strapless Calvin Klein dress and stunning diamonds, while Kate Beckinsale took the plunge in a low-cut Elie Saab. Let’s also not forget the forever young Jennifer Lopez- who proves time and time again- that she is one of THE hottest celebrities out there. The sexy latina was once again loyal to Zuhair Murad, who put her in this insanely sexy plunging, mid thigh-high slit gown!

Festive Reds

While some stars wowed in metallics, others were still enjoying the festive season and showed up in red. Two celebrities in specific stood out in the holiday color: Allison Williams blew everyone away with her strapless Armani Privé ball gown while Heidi Klum took everyone’s breath away (finally!) in a sexy, yet glamorous Versace.



Winter Whites

You can always count on the beyond beautiful Kate Hudson to bring the sexy to the red carpet. Goldie’s daughter turned heads in a sexy plunging and cut-out white Versace gown. She balanced the sexy out by putting her hair up in a demure updo. Emily Blunt also seemed to be a fan of cutouts, selecting a custom-made Michael Kors.



Nude Neutrals

Chrissy Tiegan went to Zuhair Murad who made sure that she looked sexy in sheer for the red carpet event, while Anna Kendrick channeled Cinderella in her girly Monique Lhuiller gown.




Dark Ladies

Lorde looked age appropriate in her fun custom-made Narciso Rodriguez pantsuit. The songstress’ hair may have been in distress but her jaw-dropping Neil Lane statement diamond necklace will surely divert your attention. Jennifer Aniston stayed in her comfort zone by slipping into a black halter Saint Laurent gown. While she looked beautiful, I would have loved to see her in something more daring; moreover, the halter strap is a little too 90s for 2015. I don’t blame you in case you mistakenly identified Jessica Chastain as Sofia Vergara; the red head took a page out of Vergara’s book and slipped into a va-va-voom plunging bronze Versace that hugged her curves perfectly.




A Colorful Winter

Any best dressed list is incomplete without the stunning Naomi Watts who wowed in yellow in the middle of January! The Aussie beauty chose Gucci for the globes and perfectly accessorized her look with a BVLGARI serpenti necklace. Possibly one of my favorites of the night, Jenna Dewan Tatum, was a vision in a ruffled strapless Carolina Herrera!

On the opposite end of the list, here’s Amy Adams in a one shoulder Versace. I love Amy Adams and most of the time, her choices are spot on. However, I really feel like this powder blue gown washes her out; I just wish she had went for a darker version or added a dark lip for some drama.

Tina Fey looks like she’s going to her school prom instead of a red carpet show. The funny lady disappoints in a strapless Antonio Berrardi cocktail gown, as it appears as if she sowed on that extra layer of white fabric minutes before the show..


Tina Fey


Claire Danes‘ fashion choices usually land her on the best dressed list. However, her Valentino disaster looks too medieval for the 21st century. The design is too busy and the actress’ body seems to have disappeared somewhere in between all these prints.

Lena Dunham shows you how NOT to wear red on the carpet. The Girls actress dons an asymmetrical Zac Posen dress with several busy cuts, and that’s not even the worst of it: her hideous shoes need to be burnt asap!

Lupita Nyong’o may have been last year’s red carpet darling, but the Kenyan actress is starting off 2015 on a bad note. Although the bust of her Giambattista Valli gown is exploding with perfectly arranged flowers, the midriff section looks like a New Year’s Eve cotillion cotillion gone wrong.


Lupita Nyong'o


Kate Mara is also another actress who usually gets it right. However, last night was another story. Her red Miu Miu gown looks great from afar, but take a closer look and the ruched detailing on both sides of her pelvic area is quite distracting. Also not helping is that tan belt which needs to be burnt along with Lena Dunham’s shoes.


Kate Mara


Another year, another failed look. Maggie Gyllenhal is on a winning worst dressed list streak by wearing this Miu Miu bed sheet. The bust details are beyond awkward and the gown needs to be ironed.




Lana Del Rey may be young and beautiful, but sure isn’t best dressed. The singer chose this turquoise dress? that’s all sorts of wrong. I don’t even know who the designer is, but this crime is too much to look at.


Lana Del Rey


I loved Rosamund Pike in Gone Girl. It’s also hard to believe that the British beauty just had a baby just a month ago.. Her Vera Wang dress really would have been perfect, if only it had the right fit. Considering its current state, this gown looks like a wardrobe malfunction ready to happen any minute!


Rosamund Pike


It’s hard to believe that Keira Knightly’s Chanel dress reportedly took almost 30 hours to make. I mean how hard it is to cut up a piece of fabric that has hundreds of species of butterflies and sow it into a dress? Yes she’s pregnant and yes it is wrong to make fun of pregnant women, but seriously now, there’s an almost actual living butterfly on her wrist too! There’s is no excuse for this crime against butterflies whatsoever!

Michael Kors Boutique NOW OPEN in Downtown Beirut

Tuesday marked the boutique opening of one of my all time favorite American brands, Michael Kors!

You probably already shop Michael Kors in ABC Achrafieh and BHV CityMall, but this is the first stand alone full-fledged boutique for the designer in Lebanon, with a strategic location in Beirut Souks.

As an avid fan of the Michael Kors, I love the brand’s idea of Jet.Set.Go, that embodies effortlessness in a sophisticated yet accessisble all American style. Make sure to make some time to check out the boutique this weekend. Remember that a stand-alone location means more variety and a more relaxed and refined shopping experience, which we all crave when dropping a hefty sum on a designer item!











Thank you to the amazing team at BNL for the pictures

Favs | Michael Kors: An Emerald Affair

So if you haven’t heard, earlier in 2013, it was announced that emerald is the official color of the year. Following tangerine tango in 2012 and honeysuckle in 2011, Emerald is yet another fresh color that is taking the fashion world by storm! (check Sofia Vergara’s flawless emerald look at last week’s CFDA Awards) From designer gowns to sexy stilettos to trendy handbags, not forgetting makeup, glossy nails, and even furniture, this color is everywhere!




Naturally, I decided to jump on this color bandwagon and my allegiance came in the form of a stunning Michael Kors tote in emerald that has been injecting a great pop of color to my outfits in the past month. I love the little gold detailing which instantly adds some designer flair and glamour. Another plus is size; even though this tote is labeled as small, it still manages to fit all my summer necessities without looking too bulky.




Summer is the perfect season to experiment with bold colors; so what are you waiting for? Go out and select a stunning emerald piece and get ready to make everyone green with envy!




Red Carpet | Best Dressed at the MET Gala

Fashion’s A List came out to celebrate the Met Gala in New York City, with the theme being “Punk: Chaos to Couture”. Let me tell you that there was A LOT of chaos in terms of fashion choices, but for now, let’s just focus on the jaw dropping gowns that made the Best Dressed list!

While Gwen Stefani‘s gown wasn’t as punk as I thought she would want it to be, the rocker was beautiful in a black bow bandeau top and white column skirt custom made by Maison Martin Margiela. Stefani sealed the look with her signature blond locks and red lips!

Gisele always gets it right at the MET, but this time around her choice didn’t quite knock things out of the park. The supermodel still reflected the punk theme in her Anthony Vaccarello black mini with structured details and tons of black diamonds.




Looks like the single life has been treating Katie Holmes well! The actress chose a stunning yet understated Calvin Klein white halter for the MET Gala and accessorized with $2.5 million Lorraine Schwartz earrings!

Jessica Alba is always one to impress at the MET Gala. This year, Alba went for a gun metal Tory Burch gown with fun ab-revealing cutouts. Adding a major punk touch to her look was a spiked Christian Louboutin clutch and spiked earrings!


Jessica Alba


Hate it or love it, we all know that if there is one person in the world who can pull off a Michael Kors skin tight animal-print gown, it would be Jennifer Lopez! (Same goes for the hairstyle!)




We all know that Rooney Mara loves her Givenchy so who else would she choose to design her gown for the MET Ball? Mara slipped into a white lace Haute Couture gown by the designer with major zipper detailing. She completed her look with Fred Leighton jewels and dark lips.

Leave it to Sara Jessica Parker to go wild for statement accessories! The Sex and the City alum compliments her voluminous Giles Deacon gown with a more than fabulous headpiece by Philip Treacy, that even Kate Middleton would be envy!




If anyone can pull off a dress-pant combo look it would be Jessica Biel; Mrs. Justin Timberlake chose a Giambattista Valli macramé and tulle gown with matching pants. She accessorized with patent leather pumps, Fred Leighton jewels and a nose ring!


Jessica Biel


She may be walking away from Victoria’s Secret, but Miranda Kerr can still find plenty of creative ways to show off her fit body. For the MET gala, Kerr wore a Michael Kors black halter gown with a coordinated bandeau bra. Adding major glamour to her look were the hundreds of carats of diamonds courtesy of Cartier!


Miranda Kerr


It’s refreshing to see Blake Lively learn that you don’t have to show a lot of skin to get attention on the red carpet. The former Gossip Girl star wore a stunning strapless creation by Gucci Premiere (she is the face of the brand) that had a full feather organza skirt and embellishment around the waist area. Dangling Lorraine Schartz earrings added major glam to her look!


Blake Lively


It wasn’t all perfect at the MET Gala; stay tuned for the worst dressed coming up later!

Favorites | April Showers & Colorful Trench Coats!

How weird is this weather? I thought it was finally Spring!

I am probably the world’s number one Winter and rain hater. While some fashionistas are happy feeling warm and toasty in their rain boots and puffy jackets, I’d much rather be in colorful sandals and breezy tops. But what’s a girl to do? :)

I took it upon myself to try and make the best out of these April Showers (hoping that this apparent storm is the last Beirut will see for the next 4-6 months) by investing in a colorful Spring trench coat, courtesy of Mr. Michael Kors!

What I love about it: Its bright fushia color is sufficient to keep me feeling refreshed all day long. Its soft fabric provides enough warmth for this time of year and the gold toned buttons give it a cool edge and creates a nice mix with the hot pink.

You can wear colorful trench coats over almost any colors; a hot pink trench goes great with basics such as black, grey, and some shades of purple. I wore mine today with a Michael Kors purple Hamilton Satchel and accessorized with my favorite matching hot pink Victoria’s Secret umbrella to brave this crazy rain!




What about you? What are your must-have April weather-friendly wardrobe necessities? :)
