The Oscar went to all the people and films we knew it would, Rita Moreno arrived wearing the same dress she wore to the Oscars in 1962, a theater full of legally stoned fans got the surprise of their lives, Francis McDormand invited all of Hollywood to finance more female-led projects, #whywewearblack became #whywewearwhateverwewant, celebs donned sequins, patternless fabrics, bows, and bold hues, “The Shape of Water” won big, bringing amphibian love to an entirely new level, and there were just enough jokes made at the expense of last year’s best picture flop to satisfy us all into finally letting it go.
Do I even have to say it? Did you see the clean cerulean sequins on Mandy Moore? Did you experience the red-orange mash up—an incredibly difficult color combo—on Madeline Brewer? The bow tied buns of my 90s kid dreams on Millie Bobby Brown? THE DIOR HOROSCOPE on Natalia Dyer?! The only thing missing was a rainbow-maned unicorn and a shirtless Zac Efron. The Time’s Up movement is still with us, but the black looks are trickling out (at least for now). This colorful red carpet sent me to heaven and back. Enjoy.
Black is anything but simple. Black is a statement color, and in this case, it makes a very important one. This year’s all-black dress code at the 2018 Golden Globe Awards set the stage for one of the most interesting red carpet pre-shows I’ve ever seen. Read More
I’ve never before seen a woman wear horse heads over her boobies, but I will say this—that look is working (at least on Zendaya). There is no better event to build a best dressed list for than one planned and ordained by the fashion gods and goddesses of the world. It’s really way to much fun for someone like me, who loves any excuse to stampede my social media channels, stream events online and drink red wine in my PJs. Let’s raise a glass from our couches in tandem to all the celebrities willing to put in the red carpet effort. Neigh.
A conversation needs to be had about the thigh-high boot parade that flooded this runway. Boots first, Balmain later. The shoe collection this year—which, by the way, took six months to design, per designer Brian Atwood—felt like a bigger deal than the lingerie. From the distressed denim wonder boots on Lily Aldridge, to the sleek yellow-green PINK thigh-highs on Alanna Arrington, to the sexy lace-up lady assassin-style killers on Adriana Lima, the Angels took the boot trend to an entirely new height—pun intended. (If I start seeing 5-inch heel boots at DSW, Angels, I blame you. Not everyone has wings to break the fall when they trip on a pavement crack.)
I spy with my little eye a big boot trend of the tight and knee-high variety. See for yourself: Peruse all the best-dressed celebs at the 2017 AMA’s, including the ones that weren’t technically there (ahem, Lady Gaga).
Coco Chanel’s legacy is more than her brand. Gabrielle Bonheur Chanel lived an amazing life. After her mother passed away, she was abandoned by her father and went to live in an orphanage with her younger sister. It was here that she eventually learned how to sew. She faced countless hardships both personally and in business. Yet, she went on to become the most revolutionary designer of her time; her couture is still making millions today. This costume is original, fun and even better in black and white. I already owned everything I needed for this look. Chances are that you do too. Start by grabbing every pearl you own, and the personality will follow. Read More
I first discovered this costume idea years ago on Camille Styles. I’ve always wanted to try it, but something always took its place. This year, I decided it was time to go for it and make the costume my own. If you check out the original look, you’ll see that the makeup and hair are very minimal. After a few minor adjustments to the costume, I wanted to bring the bling from this costume onto my face and hair, and came up with this fun glitter makeup look. If you’re not into Halloween, this makeup also works for festivals, concerts or even a crazy fun Friday night. If you want to see more ideas like this one, check out camillestyles.com. Their costume ideas are easy to do and so much fun! Read More
