Best & Worst Dressed at the Golden Globes

Lights, camera, awards season! The first official weekend of the new year brought along the Golden Globe awards; and while the weather is currently freezing in so many corners of the world, Los Angeles was its sunny self as Hollywood’s brightest stars came out to celebrate the best in TV and movies. Here are the night’s best and worst dressed:

Sophie Turner sizzles in Louis Vuitton! The Game of Thrones actress expertly combines shoulder pads, cutouts, and sheer in one stunning gown that show that she’s all grown up. Turner completes the look with Tiffany & Co. jewels and flat straight hair.

Heidi Klum‘s latest fashion crime comes in the form of this J. Mendel zig-zag black and white dress. The top part seems to be holding on to dear life, trying to avoid a wardrobe malfunction, while the overall surplus of sequins is nothing short of tacky!

Drew Barrymore gets it right in this whimsical Monique Lhuillier gown: the fit is flawless and the sparkly winged shoulders are a perfect compliment to the actress’ character.

Sarah Jessica Parker could be easily mistaken for a runaway bride in this Vera Wang collection mess. SJP- who usually gets it right- dons an unflattering full-on white satin gown that looks like it needs to be ironed for DAYS. Adding insult to injury is her (completely) out of place Princess Leia hair.

Evan Rachel Wood gives us a lesson on how to wear a  suit to a high profile red carpet and end up on the best dressed list. The actress nails it in a perfectly tailored Altuzarra tux with an understated pussy bow double breasted white chemise.

Nicole Kidman looks all kinds of wrong in this fully embellished Alexander McQueen gown. I can’t seem to decide what’s worse: the multi-layered ruffled hem or the (extremely) outdated arm warmers!

Last night’s Best Actress winner was breathtaking in Valentino Haute Couture. La La Land‘s Emma Stone was the epitome of glamour in a beautiful star inspired gown and Tiffany & Co. diamonds.

Chrissy Teigen misses the mark in this disappointing fishtail gown by Marchesa. The model could have done so much better than this greige meets bronze gown.

Amy Adams stuns in a fully sequined strapless Tom Ford column dress. The Arrival actress kept her hair simple and accessorized with Cartier diamonds for her walk down the red carpet.

Although Kerry Washington‘s makeup and hair were on point for the Golden Globes, her dress was NOT.  With the excessive gunmetal embroidery and awkward belt placement, this Dolce & Gabbana gold lace tea length dress has too much going on, not to mention those visible black spanks which are just tasteless.

Reese Witherspoon shines in a custom-made Atelier Versace sweetheart neckline lemon dress with a high slit and Tiffany & Co. jewelry.

Zoe Saldana hits all the wrong notes in a Valentine inspired Gucci gown. Too much fabric and a huge in-your-face lavender bow turned this look into an absolute disaster.

Kristen Bell  is chic and polished in a dangerously plunging Jenny Packham black dress. From the shiny all-over sequins to her tousled waves and not forgetting those drop dead gorgeous Harry Winston diamonds, Bell was undoubtedly the Globe’s Belle of the ball!

Blake Lively makes her post-baby return to Hollywood in an unflattering custom velvet Atelier Versace gown. The look could have been a winning one if it weren’t for the unnecessary gold sequined neckline and weird pockets? Even Blake’s enviable emerald Lorraine Schwartz cuffs could not save this look!

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.

 

reds

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.

 

white

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!

 

Naomi Watts

Jenna Dewan

 

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.

 

Amy Adams

 

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.

 

Claire Danes

 

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!

 

Lena Dunham

 

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.

 

maggie

 

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!

5 Best Dressed Stars from 2014

The new year marks the arrival of the all-important awards season. In just a few days’ time, Hollywood’s A list will be flooding LA’s red carpets, decked out in designer wear, sparkling jewels, and sky- high heels.

In honor of this impending season, let’s take a look back at some of last year’s best dressed stars!

Lupita Nyong’o was just another name early last year. But, in a few week’s time the Kenyan beauty walked away with an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her role in 12 Years A Slave and hit every best dressed list along the way. Who can forget her coral “cape” moment courtesy of Ralph Lauren at the Golden Globes or her “Nairobi” blue Prada gown at the Oscars?

 

lupita

 

When you think of Sofia Vergara, the first words that come to mind are: bombshell, latina, hot, sexy, among others. At 42, this drop-dead gorgeous Columbian keeps getting hotter as the days go by. Although Vergara is often criticized for wearng the same silhouette every red carpet, she still managed to wow audience in 2014 with a show stopping white Roberto Cavalli at the Emmys. The actress switched things up at the Golden Globe Awards by putting on a flawless black Zac Posen gown and accessorized it with a breath-taking Laurraine Schwartz statement necklace.

She was pregnant for most of 2014, but Olivia Wilde looked hotter than ever as her pregnancy advanced. Her prime moment was when she walked the red carpet wearing an amazing emerald Gucci sequined dress that accentuated her baby bump flawlessly. She completed her look with Forevermark diamonds and the best ombre hair you’ve ever seen!

 

Olivia Wilde

 

 

Kate Hudson is no stranger to best dressed lists! Although the actress was spotted wearing a similar color palette throughout the year, she was a winner every time! Her most memorable moments include a plunging sparkling caped Atelier Versace gown at the Academy Awards and a Gucci Premiere one-shouldered dress at the LACMA Art & Film Gala.

After a quiet 2013, Blake Lively made a fashion come-back in 2014! The former Gossip Girl turned heads during every red carpet event in every corner of the world. The actress was on a winning streak during the 2014 Cannes Film Festival where she dazzled in 3 FLAWLESS Gucci gowns and tons of diamonds!

Kate-Beckinsale-In-Kaufmanfranco-2014-American-Music-Awards

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!

 

fergie-290

 

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!

 

kate-beckinsale-290

 

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!

 

jlo-290

 

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!

 

heidi-klum-290

 

 

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.

 

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.

Worst Dressed at the MTV Video Music Awards

I was actually planning to write a “best dressed” post and then move onto the worst dressed, but this year’s MTV video music awards lacked a ground breaking fashion moment from all celebrities who took to the red carpet prior to the ceremony.

Check out a list of some of the most disappointing looks from the night!

 

 

While Kesha has made great improvements in terms of her wardrobe, the singer likes to up the crazy factor with crazy hair. This 'do is definitely distracting and unflattering!

Although Jordin Sparks and Jason Derulo make an adorable couple, somebody needs to tell them that the last couple who wore matching white was Posh and Becks.. in the 90s! You really don't need to wear the same colors for us to believe that you're really in love!

Maybe we should be happy that Nicki Minaj isn't all about the cleavage these days. However, this sparkly full-on leopard long sleeved mini is full-on unflattering!

Taylor Swift looks more like a figure skater than a country superstar in this Mary Katrantzou mess! Everything is wrong about this look; from the weird letters on her romper to the mismatched (but fierce!) burgundy heels. Taylor, please bring the powder colored puffy dresses!

I get that Katy Perry is trying to have fun, channeling Britney Spears' infamous VMAs denim moment years back, but there is NO EXCUSE for this Versace fashion crime!

Seems Amber Rose got a late invite to this year's VMAs. The poor thing had to sow some string beads into her bra and wear the tiniest thong she could ever find just in time for the show. Seriously now!

Ladies of Hollywood, listen up! You have endless choices when picking your outfit for tomorrow night. In case you cannot make up your mind for one reason or another, I’d really rather you show up naked, than turn the first couch you see into a dress!

Red Carpet | Supermodels Add Sexy Glamour to Cannes

Why are supermodels attending movie premieres at a film festival? Who knows… Did they bring a whole lot of sexy to the red carpet? They sure DID!

Not that I’m complaining about their presence, on the contrary, it’s pretty tough to put a model in a designer dress and not expect her to look stunning. It’s safe to say that some of the most famous faces in modeling have turned the Cannes red carpet into their very own catwalk!

Kicking it off with every guy’s favorite, Irina Shayk wore this black cutout and very sheer Roberto Cavalli dress (I guess you can call it a dress). The Russian beauty kept oh so very little to the imagination and even avoided a few wardrobe malfunctions.

 

Irina

 

 

Erin Heatherton was a bit more discrete on the red carpet, appearing twice so far wearing gowns by Roberto Cavalli. Just last night, the Victoria’s Secret Angel chose a white lace number by the Italian designer for a bash on his yacht.

For the premiere of The Great Gatsby, British model Cara Delevingne wore a plunging black dress by Burberry with sheer panels of lace. Red lips, a smokey eye, and sparkling diamonds completed her look.

Doutzen Kroes is another model currently attending the Cannes Film Festival. For her first appearance, the Dutch beauty chose a blush pink gown by Versace that featured a plunging neckline and a high thigh slit. For her next walk down the red carpet, Doutzen wore a jaw dropping white dress by Calvin Klein, complete with a slit up to there and that put her back on full display.

 

kroes

 

 

 

I saved the best for last, and the best is non other than Alessandra Ambrosio. The Brazilian model has been seen all over Cannes tanning, enjoying the sites, and having lunch with friends in comfy outfits. However, when it was time to hit the festival, the model brought the glam! For the De Grisogono party, Alessandra wore a stunning yellow gown by Elie Saab and accessorized with a matching belt and sandals. To attend Roberto Cavalli’s boat party, she chose a royal blue gown by the designer that featured a lacey sheer back. Back on the red carpet, the model looked like she was dripping in silver in another Roberto Cavalli metallic creation that covered her frame, but showed off her sexy physique.

Red Carpet | Memorable Gowns from the MET Gala!

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!

 

Camilla Belle Ralph Lauren10

 

 

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.

 

Blake Lively Versace9

 

 

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.

 

Diane Kruger Jason Wu8

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!

Emma Stone Lanvin7

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!

Kate B Marchesa6

 

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.

Anne H Valentino5

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!

Zoe Saldana CK4

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!

Beyonce in givenchy2

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!

Gwyneth Paltrow Stella McCartney3

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.

G1

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 | Memorable Oscar Fashion!

The wait is over and Oscar night is finally here! For many of us fashion enthusiasts, this night is more about the designer gowns, fancy hair, and drop-dead-gorgeous diamonds rather than who actually wins an award!

So in anticipation of what the stars will bring to the red carpet tonight, here are Oscar’s most memorable gowns ever!

Halle Berry

The most memorable dress of the century! In 2002, nominee Halle Berry stepped on the red carpet in this Elie Saab Couture gown with a sheer bodice and strageically placed embroidery. Lucky for her, she even won the Oscar for “Monster’s Ball” and got to show the dress to the world in her acceptance speech.

 

Halle B

 

Penelope Cruz

Penelope chose a blush colored Atelier Versace gown for the 2007 Academy Awards with a sweeping train. An elegant updo and natural makeup completed the flawless look!

 

Penelope C

 

Charlize Theron

To collect her Best Actress award for “Monster”, Charlize wore a nude Gucci gown to the 2004 Academy Awards. The dress fit Charlize like a glove and she managed to look even more Hollywood glam in her retro waves and statement jewelry.

 

Charlize T

 

Anne Hathaway

Before chopping off her hair to play “Fantine” in “Les Miserables”, this year’s Best Supporting Actress nominee dazzled on the red carpet in 2008. Her deep red Marchesa chiffon gown with flowers on the bodice and shoulder looked like a piece of art and the train made the look even more dramatic.

 

Anne H

 

Julia Roberts

One year before Halle Berry’s legendary Oscar gown, Julia Roberts turned heads when she hit the red carpet wearing Vintage Valentino. The black dress with white accents is the best thing I’ve ever seen Julia in. That night, Julia won Best Actress for her role in “Erin Brokovich” and I’m sure the gown is one of the reasons why she received a standing ovation as she finished her speech!

 

Julia R

 

Michelle Williams

Who could forget the canary yellow Vera Wang gown Michelle Williams wore to the 2006 Academy Awards? With the late Heath Ledger on her arm, Michelle was the definition of boho chic in this mustardy color, along with a side swept-do, red lips, and a statement necklace.

 

Michelle W

 

Hillary Swank

When Hillary Swank walked the Oscar red carpet in 2005, everyone thought she looked far too conservative. Fast forward a few minutes and Hillary reveals a cutout down to there in the back of her Guy Laroche gown. She also picked up an Academy Award for her stellar performance in “Million Dollar Baby”.

 

Hillary S

 

Jennifer Lawrence

In 2011, Jennifer Lawrence was nowhere close to how famous she is today. But that didn’t stop her from knocking it out of the park in this va-va-voom red Calvin Klein gown. This low cut yet simple gown, along with blownout blonde locks put Jennifer on the best dressed list that year!

 

Jennifer L

 

Mila Kunis

Wearing lavender in February can be tricky, but Mila was a vision in this chiffon Elie Saab gown at the 2011 ceremony. The delicate lace is placed strategically in all the right places and the ribbon around the waist compliments Mila’s figure perfectly.

 

Mila K

 

That’s it for now, but tune in tomorrow to find out who was best dressed at the 2013 Academy Awards live from Hollywood!

LB’s Fashion’s Night Out | DAMAC Luxury Interiors Launches VERSACE Home Boutique in Beirut!

Under the auspices of H.E.M. of Tourism, Fady Abboud, DAMAC Luxury Interiors launched the new Versace Home boutique in Saifi last night.

 

The Versace Home Boutique in Saifi

 

The glamorous affair attracted Lebanon’s elite crowd including Miss Lebanon 2013 Rina Chibany, Vivianne Eddé, Papou Lahoud, members of the Lebanese media, as well as the Versace Home team, who flew in from Italy to attend the event.

 

IMG_4451IMG_6487IMG_6492

 

The boutique houses items designed specifically by Versace Home to add a more luxurious touch to all home items; from precious china to chairs and tables, sofas, and even beds, the entire collection is intricately and carefully designed. The colors add a touch of freshness while maintaining the signature Versace class in every item, which makes us feel like the pieces should belong in an art gallery.

 IMG_6505IMG_6548IMG_6575

 

During the event, I had an amazing chance to meet and have a quick chat with Ms. Vanya Krasteva, Interior Designer at Versace Home Italy. On her third visit to Beirut, Vanya told me that Versace is keen on putting out a new home collection every year. Some of her clients wait for new items on a yearly basis to add to their treasured collections. The designs are basically a mixture of class and elegance with fresh pops of color here and there, along with the legendary Versace logo. Vanya is very excited about the launch of the boutique in Lebanon as it is a great opportunity to push the collection further in the Middle East and among clients who would love to own and display these prized possessions in their own homes.
