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..

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.

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!

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.

Red Carpet | And the Oscar for Best Dressed Actress Goes to..

Awards season’s final stop and most important show- the Academy Awards- took place last night in Los Angeles. Hours before the ceremony, celebrities floated on the red carpet in stunning designer gowns and shiney diamonds, but only 5 of them deserve to be on the best dressed list, and here they are!

Jennifer Lawrence 

It only seems fair that Jennifer makes the best dressed list and here’s why: 1) she won the Best Actress Award for her role in Silver Linings Playbook and 2) she wore a Dior Couture gown that was just featured at Paris Fashion Week! Jennifer’s ivory princess like gown made her the Belle of the ball and her pricey Chopard accessories included  23 carat earrings and a 74 carat necklace worn down her back.

Jessica Chastain

She may have not won last night, but Jessica stunned in a bronze Giorgio Armani gown that looks like it was poured over her body. Perfect old Hollywood waves and Harry Winston diamonds completed her look. Surely enough, her million dollar red lipped smile easily won over the screaming crowd!

Sandra Bullock

Although Sandra was not nominated last night, that didn’t stop her from looking like a winner at the Oscars. Bullock made a stunning entrance in this Elie Saab sheer skirted black gown, Harry Winston sparklers, Swarovski clutch, and Jimmy Choos.

Amy Adams

Looking like her alter ego “Giselle”  from the movie “Enchanted”, Amy Adams floats down the red carpet in this powder blue Oscar De La Renta gown, complete with heavy embroidery on the bodice and a full tulle embellished skirt. Amy finished up her look with possibly the best hairstyle of the night and diamond drop earrings.

Naomi Watts

She may not have won (although she was my personal favorite), but she did it again and landed at number one on the Best Dressed list! Following her winning look at the SAGs, Naomi wore a gunmetal Armani Privé gown fit for royalty and worked this asymmetric neckline while flaunting some sexy yet tasteful cleavage. $1.5 million worth of Neil Lane jewels completed the look and made Naomi shine even brighter!

That’s a wrap for a awards season 2013! Stay tuned for much more!

Red Carpet | Rihanna is Best Dressed at the Grammys 2013!

OK. So I really wanted to have a best dressed list countdown, but Rihanna just caused that to fly out the window! Last night at the Grammys, the stunning Barbadian beauty was in a league of her own; from her gown to her makeup and that beautiful shiney hair, Rihanna was the ultimate best dressed star at this year’s awards!

Wearing a custom made Azzedine Alaia bright red dress, Rihanna owned the red carpet as she walked it. Her flowing gown with sheer panels of chiffon made heads turn, as everyone was reminded of her early good girl style choices.

What made Rihanna even that much more beautiful were her perfectly lined cat eyes, bright red lips, red manicured nails, and her classy ombre waves. Surely enough, the $2 million Neil Lane diamonds and rubies didn’t hurt either!
