This sexy and elegant Versace was one of our favorite looks from the “Chicago Styled” exhibit at the Chicago History Museum. It was giving us a Diana Ross in “Mahagony” moment. If you’ll be in or around Chi-town anytime soon, check it out. A fabulous fashion archive they have there. No missed glamourtunities in this look!

Oscars Red Carpet Wrap-Up: “Missed Glamourtunity”

April 14, 2015

Six celebs had a Missed Glamourtunity on the Oscars red carpet are Chloe Moretz, Lorelei Linklater, Will.i.Am, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jared Leto, and Zoe Saladana. Let’s discuss Moretz, Linklater, and Will.i.Am first.

Chloe Moretz was in Miu Miu. The dress was fit poorly in the bodice and their is way too much fabric on the bottom. The pose she went for on the red carpet didn’t help because it only expanded what already looked like a blanket at was awkward. Her hair also looked undone and not in an effortless chic way. Lorelei Linklater is on our worst dressed list for the second time this award’s season. While this Gabriela Cadena gown is an improvement from her look at the SAGs, it isn’t working. The bottom is poorly fit. Her leg looks awkward sticking out as it does and the print on the bodice and side panel of the bottom half of the garment is confusing. Her hair also looks really thin and thirsty. I do like the edgy #styling with the jewelry, shoe, red lip and earring. Finally Will.I.Am. Worst of the worst. Sir, you tried it! Or better yet, you didn’t. This jailhouse train conductor hybrid look was too casual, too strange, and just an insult to the red carpet. For someone so creative and supposedly into fashion, you gave us no fashion or style to speak of last night, darling. No good. And now for Paltrow, Leto, and Saldana.

Gwyneth Paltrow’s hair and make-up are lovely, as are the earrings. But the Ralph Russo Couture gown is just the wrong color for her skin tone. In another color and without the flower (especially in that color) which looks so gaudy and without purpose, it may have worked. Jared Leto was having a wonderful awards season on the #redcarpet, but he got to the Oscars and just said “aww, f- it.” The color of this suit and the white shirt and tie with the pale pink flower lapel pin looks like a #nightmare Easter suit from the 60s. And I just don’t get the white shoes at all. A clunky mess. And lastly, Zoe Saldana in Atelier Versace. This is a dress that doesn’t know what it wants to be, and the spaghetti straps are giving me a 90s bridesmaid dress effect. I am not a fan of the spiral curls which also look very old too. I also don’t think the color works for her beautiful complexion either. Usually these three are all at the top of any fashion lovers list of red carpet winners, but not this time around.

Grammy Awards Red Carpet Wrap-Up: “Glamourtunists of the Night”

February 21, 2015

Screen Shot 2015-02-20 at 8.43.37 PM

The Grammys “Glamourtunists of the Night” best dressed are three women who shut the carpet all the way down to the ground. The legendary Jane Fonda in green and gold Balmain jumpsuit. Mother Jane is serving us hair, body, hollywood glamour and all we need in life. She’s about to have me track down some old Jane Fonda workout videos because I need to look this damn #Fierce in my 70s too. Werk !!! Gwen Stefani wins the whole evening for me in this black Atelier Versace jumpsuit. The bodice is so special and ornate, and the make-up and hair is so minimal and clean. She looked flawless head to toe. Best of the night. And finally, Zendaya was stunning on the red carpet with her new pixie cut and a multicolor striped Vivienne Westwood gown with a high, high slit. I literally screamed in delight when I caught a glimpse of her on the television.

Golden Globes Red Carpet Wrap-Up: “Glamourtunists of the Night” (Best Dressed)

February 20, 2015

Here are our six Golden Globes “Glamourtunists of the Night”: Anna Kendrick, Lupita Nyong’o, Viola Davis, Julianne Moore, Kate Hudson, and Emma Stone. These are looks I thought exemplified what I mean by “glamourtunist” in that they fully met the moment of one of the biggest stages in fashion, and gave us looks that are fabulous, chic, and memorable.

Screen Shot 2015-02-20 at 8.58.43 AM

Anna Kendrick in this dreamlike Monique Lhullier fantasy gown, with Brian Atwood heels and Fred Leighton gems, looked amazing. She does the princess thing at times to detrimental effects, but this looks grown up, regal, and a stand out in color. Lupita Nying’o held onto her crown as the reigning queen of the red carpet in Giambattista Valli. Her hair is marvelous, and when she presented an award in those glasses and the Valli. Yaaaasss! That’s all that needs to be said. WERK, Lupita. And the last in our trio is another red carpet favorite of many, Viola Davis. Here she is wearing Donna Karan Atelier, and clearly DK knows still knows what many women want. This gown is great at any age, skin color/complexion, sitting and standing. I love red. I love red on the red carpet. And I love Viola Davis in red.

The final trio of Golden Globes “Glamourtunists of the Night” are Julianne Moore, Kate Hudson, and Emma Stone. Moore looks so fashion forward, spirited, and fierce in custom Givenchy. Moore is in my top three looks of the night along with Kate Hudson, who made my list multiple times (see previous posts) in this look, and I think she is making a good run for Lupita Nyong’o’s red carpet queen crown in this white Atelier Versace. So, sexy. And last, but not least, Emma Stone in a Lanvin  jumpsuit. Very original, very fashion forward, different than others, luxurious, sophisticated, just EVERYTHING. The bow was a bit more than I desired, but still makes for a great look.

Golden Globes Red Carpet Wrap-Up: “Scene Stealers”

February 12, 2015

Screen Shot 2015-02-20 at 8.57.11 AM

These four looks were what I call Scene Stealers. They don’t win the night overall, but they sure did look fantastic and memorable. Katie Cassidy in a high-slit Mikael D was saying “what is Jolie-Ning again?” Loved! Jessica Chastain in Atelier Versace made an immediate impact leaving her car. I couldn’t wait for her to get to the red carpet hosts to know who made this beautiful gown. Conchita Wurst killing it in green, and serving a fabulous body-ody-ody as the chil’ren say. And Jenna Dewan Tatum in this pale canary Carolina Herrera.

Golden Globes Red Carpet Wrap-Up: Favorite Trend and Favorite Fashion Houses

February 11, 2015

It’s hard to believe the Golden Globes have come and gone already. Here we recap our favorite trend and favorite fashion houses on the red carpet Golden Globe’s night.

Favorite Trend: White Gowns

Screen Shot 2015-02-17 at 10.55.16 PM

White was a major trend on the GoldenGlobes red carpet, and came with lots of variations. Here are three looks that employed the trend successfully. Sienna Miller in Miu Miu. Loved the embroidery and beading on this gown, as well as her fabulous bob. Salma Hayek in an off-white Alexander McQueen with a dark belt at the waist. And last, but not least, Kate Hudson in this sexy Atelier Versace. Kate wins the trend for the night in my book.

Fashion Houses of the Night: Zuhair Murad & Atelier Versace

Screen Shot 2015-02-17 at 11.02.56 PM

On a red carpet night as big as this one, Fashion houses battle it out for who put the best looks on the RedCarpet in a single night. There are two houses I thought shared that distinction. The first was Zuhair Murad, who dressed Jennifer Lopez and Chrissy Teigen in these gorgeous gowns. Zuhair Murad always seems to have the looks that effortlessly combine glamour with sexy.

Screen Shot 2015-02-20 at 8.55.23 AM

In the battle of the fashion houses, Atelier Versace gave Zuhair Murad a run for their money by dressing the largest number of women well on the red carpet in a single night. Here are three examples, all in Atelier Versace: Jessica Chastain, Amy Adams, Kate Hudson and others.
