Met Gala 2016

image

(top 3 favs: Poppy Delevingne in Marchesa, Karlie Kloss in Brandon Maxwell, & Ciara in HM)

It’s another red carpet event that we wait all year for.. the Met Gala! The most anticipated fashion event where celebrities can pretty much take a risk and have fun with fashion. We see the most beautiful gowns by designers alongside their muse for the night. This year the Metropolitan Museum of Art announced their theme for next year’s costume exhibition: “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology.” It will focus on hand made haute couture and machine made fashion.  There were a lot of stunning looks this year and surprising worst (SJP…).  I’ve rounded up all of my favorite looks, along with the worst dressed of the night. Check out all the red carpet looks below!

Oscars Red Carpet

image

It’s what we’ve all been waiting for- the OSCARS. We all anticipate what the stars will be wearing on the red carpet, although it is the most important part of the show (and Leo of course). It was so hard to choose my top 3 best dressed, but these three definitely slayed the red carpet this year. Rachel McAdams is wearing an emerald August Getty Atelier gown. High slits have definitely been trending on the red carpet this season. Rooney Mara never disappoints in a lace Givenchy gown, and one who hasn’t been seen on the red carpet in some time is Charlize Theron making a come back in a plunging Dior gown. Check out more stunning looks, trends of the night, and the ones who surprisingly got on my worst dressed list below!

Stunning whites:image

Olivia Wilde was another best dressed of mine in Valentino Houte Couture, also had the best accessories of the night. Priyanka Chopra is wearing a sheer, embellished Zuhair Murad dress, and Lady Gaga looked stunning in a Brandon Maxwell jumpsuit.

Embellished Applique & pastels:image

Cate Blanchett always looks flawless and was another tough one to choose between for best dressed wearing Armani Prive. This wasn’t one of Alicia Vikander’s best looks, but still looked gorgeous in Louis Vuitton resembling Disney’s Belle. Expecting Emily Blunt was glowing in an embellished detail Prada gown.

Sequins on sequins:image

Emerald was another trend of the night, and this was one of Saoirse Ronan’s best looks wearing custom Calvin Klein. The always stunning Margo Robbie wearing an all gold sequined DVF dress. I loved this look on Daisy Ridley in Chanel, but this may not have been the best choice for the Oscars red carpet.

Black Beauties: image

JLaw was another favorite of mine wearing a lace Dior gown. Another one we haven’t seen in awhile is Jennifer Garner wearing Atelier Versace, and Julianne Moore always pulling off Chanel.

The Worst:image

Heidi Klum in Versace has had some major fails on the red carpet lately. She’s so gorgeous, but needs a new stylist. Kerry, Kerry, Kerry…the one who always slays sadly did not tonight, and the biggest disappointment of the night was winner Brie Larson wearing Gucci. The only good thing about this whole look is the belt, which belongs on a different dress.

What were your best and worst dressed of the night?!

Sneaker Central

 

Why we all want Kendall Jenner’s sneakers? Its obvious, they look good with everything. This sneaker trend isn’t going anywhere. Fashion icons, celebrities, and bloggers are still wearing sneakers with skirts to dresses. I remember when it was a fashion sin to wear sneakers in public. Finally it’s okay to wear something that’s actually doing good for your feet and still look fashionable! Styling tip: Go for a neutral or white pair for a sleek look that will go with any outfit. If you can’t afford the Yeezys we all want, Nike air max and Adidas have some really great neutral pairs too. Shop the sneakers below!

Grammys Red Carpet Trends

imageThe Grammys are here!! Another award show with some amazing and iconic red carpet looks. Although there were so many stunning looks tonight, these 3 were my top best dressed of the night. Bella Hadid is wearing Alexandre Vauthier Haute Couture, Taylor Swift is wearing an amazing two-piece by Atelier Versace, and Ellie Goulding is wearing Stella McCartney (with gorgeous back detail). There was so much black, high slits, and cutouts. Check out all the red carpet trends of the night below!

High Slits-imageThe slits keep getting higher and higher. Ciara brought slits to a whole other level wearing Alexandre Vauthier, Carrie Underwood in Nicolas Jebran, and Demi Lavato in Norisol Ferrari.

Embellished Graphics-imageLeave it to these two to pull off looks no one else can. Lady Gaga represented the iconic David Bowie wearing custom Marc Jacobs, and Florence Welch in Gucci.

Side Cutouts-
imageKeeping it sexy like always Bella Hadid is wearing Alexandre Vauthier Haute Couture, Selena Gomez in Calvin Klein, and Alessandra Ambrosio in Versace.

Whites-
imageKaley cuoco is wearing Naeem Khan, Beyonce is wearing Ibal Dror, and Chrissy Teigen in Yousef Al-Jasmi.

Black Sequins-
imageAdele looked  gorgeous in Givenchy and Meghan Trainor is wearing Michael Costello.

The Guys-imageYup, had to throw the guys in here this time. They were all just too good not to add.  Favorite of the night had to be Miguel. Justin Bieber in all black with a white suit jacket and of course Sam Smith in a navy suit.
imageJohn Legend in a print suit, Pharrell pulling off denim and sneakers on the red carpet, and The Weeknd in an all black suit.

The Worst-imageZendaya disappointed in this Dsquared2 suit and a not so flattering new haircut. Kacey Musgraves is wearing probably the worst Armani Prive dress I have ever seen, and Tove Lo in a very awkward Malene Birger lace dress.
