Reviewing the 2017 Golden Globes…

And, awards season has officially begun with the critically acclaimed television programs and films: the Golden Globes. Time for my red carpet fashion review.

23bb7f034789c7bc02c6526085fde834 Lily Collins is perhaps one of my best dressed picks of the night in this absolutely stunning pink Zuhair Murad gown. Princessy and elegant.

screen-shot-2017-01-08-at-7-32-18-pm Tracee Ellis Ross looks glam in this Zuhair Murad sheer, sparkly dress. And the hair and accessories perfectly accent the dress.

gettyimages-631241146_master Star of my fave new show “This is Us,” Mandy Moore looks regal and elegant in this simplistic Naeem Khan navy gown with a flawless cape.

screen-shot-2017-01-08-at-6-21-55-pm Mandy’s costars (her set husband and son), Milo Ventimiglia and Sterling K. Brown pose together. Awww.

gettyimages-631241936_master-1 Ruth Negga wearing a perfectly tailored silver metallic Louis Vuitton pantsuit. Love. Edgy but still elegant.

gettyimages-631240756_master Kristen Bell, posed with husband Dax Shepard. One, cute celeb couple alert! Two, love her gown. So elegant and tailored to perfection.

gettyimages-631240754_master Little 12-year-old Millie Bobby Brown is already a fashion icon before she becomes a teenager! Flawless.

screen-shot-2017-01-08-at-7-31-53-pm Natalie Portman shows off her baby bump in a bejeweled Prada frock that I think she was inspired from her role as Jackie Kennedy. But she looks good, but perhaps another color?

gettyimages-631243444 I love Sarah Paulson’s Marc Jacobs metallic gown. Gorge.

screen-shot-2017-01-08-at-7-32-51-pm Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel are red carpet royalty! Love her Elie Saab gown, with the different textural elements that add interest yet still keep it elegant.

gettyimages-631242266 Star of my latest Netflix obsession “The Crown,” Claire Foy looks positively regal. (Haha punny considering she was nominated for playing the Queen.) Very vintage-inspired. Some people may not like her lilac belt or the puffy sleeves– but I think it adds to the vintage elegance charm of the look.

gettyimages-631242178 Carrie Underwood: Yikes. I don’t know what’s going on here between the chest ruffles, the sleeves, the crop top. Normally she always looks fab, ehhh not today. I do give her props for her beauty look– hair and makeup look very nice.

gettyimages-631242138 I really like Busy Phillips’ Stella McCartney black embroidered gown. It’s very different from others on the carpet, but it works here. I’d maybe just do her hair a little cleaner?

gallery-1483919606-gettyimages-631240942 Drew Barrymore is giving me vintage vibes with her gown choice, and I like it. Chic and elegant. Love the sleeves and placement of the embellishments.

gettyimages-631239732 Priyanka Chopra, star of my fave show, “Quantico,” wears an amazing custom Ralph Lauren golden gown. How appropriate given the venue. But it looks flawless.

gallery-1483919168-gettyimages-631240452 I’m a huge fan of Alessandro Michele’s work for Gucci, and Felicity Jones’ dress is no exception. Stunning. Love this little embellished bow detail.

gettyimages-631241268 Michelle Williams is classic in a lace Louis Vuitton and I really like this look. So chic. And love her simplistic choker to accent the look.

gettyimages-631244030 Rachel Bloom may be elated to be nominated again after her previous win OR that her great musical television show got picked up for another season on the CW. But, love her dress. So classic and gorge.

gettyimages-631244006 Gal Gadot is the perfect example of baby bump chic.

gettyimages-631243792 Kerry Washington goes for haute couture in this Dolce & Gabbana dress. Gorge. Love the shoulder detail!

gettyimages-631243614 Love Brie Larson’s Rodarte red dress. So timeless and elegant with gorgeous beading detail. Best dressed list for sure.

gettyimages-631243582 Zoe Saldana in an amazing Gucci dress. Love the ruffles and the bow. SO pretty. And so different from anyone else on the carpet.

gettyimages-631243426 Anna Kendrick: Meh. It looks good, it’s just red carpet predictable.

gettyimages-631243384 SJP looks so chic in her Vera Wang gown. I mean, she’s the ultimate fashion icon, and this is no exception.  Love.

chrissy-metz-golden-globes  Chrissy Metz of my fave show “This is Us,” looks great. She’s positively radiant and the dress totally suits her. Congrats on the fantastic role, you are a true star.

c1ssbhcwgaac05u Ryan Gosling looks dapper in his white blazer.

c1smvgdw8aac2ro John Legend and Chrissy Teigen have a parents night out in their chic ensembles. Love her peplum gold dress. Gorge. But I cannot believe she actually SAT down on the red carpet for their interview with Ryan Seacreat– lol!

c1slebtxaai-3jr Emma Stone stuns in Maison Valentino. Wow, so amazing. I love. Best dressed tie with Lily Collins??

So many gorgeous looks tonight! Let me know your thoughts. Onto the show!

My Latest Fall Obsessions

Hi everyone! It’s been a crazy, hectic fall semester full of homework, keeping up with the election news (ugh, so overwhelming), job applications and my senior seminar research study, which is why I haven’t posted as much. But, I’m back now! Yay! (I choose to believe you, my loyal readers, are just as thrilled to be reading this as I am to get to write this.)

With the fall season, in between the serious news and workload, there’s been plenty of new pop culture to immerse oneself in.

1.  Netflix’s new show, “The Crown.”

mv5bnju2nza5mzgym15bml5banbnxkftztgwndawotuxmdi-_v1_ux182_cr00182268_al_As of this past Sunday, November 6, I began binge-watching the latest Netflix original series, titled “The Crown” and chronicling the early days of the marriage of Queen Elizabeth II (Claire Foy) and Prince Philip (Matt Smith). May I just say, in my opinion, it is one of the best dramatic series that Netflix has created. It very much resembles the British shows that I became so fond of last year while I was abroad. While I’m only four episodes in (no spoilers please!), I’ve become hooked, as the storytelling is well-done at expressing the Royal Family “as Kardashians,” as the stars jokingly referred to it during talk shows and press interviews. Now enjoy some of my random thoughts that crossed my mind while watching:

  • Is there a certain quota of Matt Smith’s bum shots to include per episode?
  • Is it [the bum shots of Matt Smith as Prince Philip] historically accurate??
  • Time to pull up Wikipedia for a historical timeline and family tree…
  • Oh no, I can relate to such bad fog over London! 😦

2. Netflix’s acquisition of one of my favorite BBC shows, “Doctor Foster.”

maxresdefaultWhile abroad in London (one year ago *insert sobs here*) and taking classes in British media, I began watching a new series called “Doctor Foster,” a five-part story of British GP Gemma Foster living a happily married life as a wife and mum until discovering a single blonde hair on her husband Simon’s scarf. The show tells the story of a woman finding out about her husband’s infidelity and the lengths she goes to find the truth. Such a powerful story courtesy of the Beeb, and I truly recommend you all to watch it. Truly brilliant, and it’s such a shame it is a British show because I have absolutely no clue how I’ll be able to watch the second series (now filming) when it starts airing.

3. Kenzo X H&M collaboration

screen-shot-2016-05-25-at-8-23-15-pmUpon the release of H&M’s latest designer collab (remember how genius the Balmain one was a year ago??) with Kenzo, I immediately went to the lookbook and was instantly obsessed. Knowing I couldn’t get it all because most of it was sold out was sad, but I chose an adorable off-the-shoulder printed floral blouse and I cannot wait for it to arrive later this week, because I have already planned outfits around it. (Too much?)

4. Gagged Chokers

gagged-chokersCreated by Broadway’s Princess Jasmine (Courtney Reed), a new business venture has emerged and created handmade, unique chokers for the cool girls. And they made a Broadway collection. Seemed like a no-brainer to me. After careful consideration of what was in stock and various styles, I chose the Memory choker: a leopard-print (alternating with a plain gold) choker inspired and named from the Broadway revival of “Cats.” It was the appropriate mix of edgy, trendy and cute, and once again I have outfits planned well in advance to match. (Is that too much?)

5. “The Magnolia Story” book

I just started this weekend “The Magnolia Story” of Chip and Joanna Gaines from the HGTV hit “Fixer Upper.” While I’m only on chapter one and two, I’ve instantly become transfixed by the humor and cuteness of real-life home decor couple Chip and Joanna Gaines. I start thinking, “Aww! They are so cute!! ❤ *melting into a pile on the floor*)

screen-shot-2016-11-07-at-5-26-29-pm

6. My calming mechanisms

The one thing that can always calm me down after a stressful day: HGTV. Watching any HGTV show never fails to calm down my nervous energy brought on by the amount of stress I’ve been feeling as a senior in my last semester of college ever. So, sometimes it helps to calm down and de-stress, which this blog is also helping.

7. The tear-jerking dramedy on NBC, “This is Us.”

Ever since binging the first episode, I was hooked on this new show (which clearly the rest of the world was too, as it was picked up for a full season hours after the pilot aired.) It’s so well-written and does such a great job at telling human stories, interwoven with the perfect sprinkle of humor. The one downer: I. CAN’T. STOP. SOBBING. Literally, this show has (on average) reduced to me to tears at least twice an episode. The only show where my emotions can play tennis, and alternate between laughing and ugly crying every few minutes. Kleenex, you should get on this– I smell a perfect corporate sponsorship opportunity here.

this-is-us-nbc

8. Niall Horan’s new single, “This Town.”

I know Directioners, this may seem like a tragedy that the day long feared as arrived— the 1D boys’ solo projects. Which for me, signifies the end to a 1D era. But, Horan’s debut single is so different, but I love it. More reminiscent of Ed Sheeran’s ballads, it’s so beautiful and I love listening to it… Sometimes on repeat. (No judgment, please.)

screen-shot-2016-11-07-at-5-43-52-pm

9. Little Mix’s new single, “Shout Out to My Ex.”

Shortly after Horan’s single another UK-based single was released, this time X Factor winning girl band Little Mix. And while you immediately start debating whether or not this was meant as member Perrie’s ex (and 1D’s ex-member) Zayn and his rather quick turnaround of a relationship with model Gigi Hadid, I’m over here jamming out this smash hit. So fun, and pure Little Mix, which is perfect, rumors aside of who it is based on with the title “shout out to my ex.”

screen-shot-2016-11-07-at-5-43-46-pm

10. I’d be crazy if I didn’t include the upcoming Netflix “Gilmore Girls” revival…

Yes, I am so excited to see where literally every character from my favorite adolescent television show has ended up. And before you even ask what team I am— I’m Team Right Guy at the Right Time for Rory! (They were all great prospects for the time they were together, I think everyone can agree on that.)

Those are some of my obsessions this fall season! Go check them out yourself, and let me know your thoughts!

And make sure to VOTE tomorrow! Whatever side you choose, remember that it’s YOUR voice and you have the chance to make YOUR voice heard and count, because everyone’s voice matters.

Emmys 2016 Red Carpet Review

As tonight is the Emmy Awards, that means my red carpet fashion review is back! Ready? Here we go!

priyanka-chopra Priyanka Chopra (Star of my latest Netflix binge/ television obsession: Quantico) looks fab in her long, one shoulder dress. Looks elegant and I have nothing else to say–except WILL ALEX AND RYAN ACTUALLY END UP TOGETHER THIS SEASON? (Sorry, I just had to get that out.)

emily-ratajkowski-in-zacposen I can honestly say I’ve never seen a Zac Posen dress like Emily Ratajkowski’s, but I’m not mad at it– it looks gorgeous (as always, Mr. Posen) and elegant and regal, but still edgy. (Just confused why she’s there.)

gwendoline-christie Okay, so when I went to the British Fashion Awards last fall, I saw Gwendoline Christie accept her style icon award and definitely noticed how tall she is (me, I have the opposite problem), but here–you almost don’t realize how tall she is, just how gorgeous and glam her dress is. So, bravo.

stranger-things-kids-millie-in-valentino The Netflix show is Stranger Things sweeping the nation, as is the child actors who star in it. And their wardrobe choices are fab. The boys look great in their interesting blazers. (That middle blazer, though?!?) Love. And young Millie wearing such a gorgeous Valentino red dress… Um, so is it to early to call Best Dressed yet??

sophie-turner-got-in-valentino Sophie Turner is wearing a stunning Valentino lace dress. Simplistic yet elegant. Stunning. And that picture— BLING. Sorry, I got a bit distracted by her ring. Very shiny.

tatiana-maslany-in-a-wang I love this Alexander Wang dress on Tatiana Maslany. It’s long and elegant (especially paired with her hair and earrings), but the cutouts add just the perfect amount of edginess that I love.

sarah-hyland-monique-lhullier Everyone has been praising this Monique Lhullier look on Sarah Hyland… Okay, brutal honesty time. I like the top: stunning. elegant. I like the idea of pants. I like the tailoring. I like her hair. Stunning. It’s just putting all that together looks a little disjointed to me and I’m not liking the combination of the stunning pieces. They just don’t really flow together– the colors seem mismatched.

ellie-kemper-jenny-packham Love Ellie Kemper in Jenny Packham. Stunning. Glam. And I love her hairdo–so classic.

tori-kelly Tori Kelly is classic Old Hollywood and looks great. STUNNING.

emilia-clarke-in-atelier-versace Emilia Clarke looks so breathtakingly stunning in Versace– I’m just not sure what I think of the nude color…

kristen-bell-zuhair-murad Wow, I love Zuhair Murad, and Kristen Bell’s gown looks impeccable. Very princessy, very glam and very unique.

anna-chlumsky Oh, I don’t even know what to think about Anna Chulmsky. That bad, that it’s rendered me speechless– in a bad way. Yikes.  This does look like your grandparents’ sofa: the fabric, the color: blech.

rami-malek-dior-homme Rami Malek looks very dapper in Dior Homme or as Tim Gunn says, “sartorially correct.”

screen-shot-2016-09-18-at-8-06-04-pm Kerry Washington in “baby bump chic” and looks just as chic as ever. Her dress is gorgeous. And even with minimal/natural makeup, she’s still flawless.

screen-shot-2016-09-18-at-7-57-06-pm Love this Marchesa dress on Viola Davis. The color and details looks AHMAZING. Gorge. And PLEASE DON’T LET ANY OF THE KEATING FIVE + ANNALISE DIE THIS SEASON. (Sorry, that just came out.)

screen-shot-2016-09-18-at-8-07-20-pm Shiri Appleby of Unreal (love the show!) looks ahmazing and so glam in this sparkly blue gown. Stunning. Love it.

csrpcwxw8aaktlq Claire Danes look stunning in this very sparkly gold dress. But is it me or did she try to match her dress to her hair? Just a little bit?

screen-shot-2016-09-18-at-7-57-00-pm I think Sarah Paulson’s Prada dress HAS TO be my favorite gown on the red carpet. It’s just stunning. Utterly gorgeous.

Okay, time to watch the show! What were your favorite red carpet looks of the night? And who are you rooting for?

Nothing is more fashionable then the Met Gala…

Sorry, it’s been a while! My schedule has been way hectic between homework and classes, assignments, writing jobs, spring break and my internship search, and unfortunately, this blog sort of got cast aside for the time being. But, fear not! Because, I’m back! And hopefully with regularly scheduled posts! Yay!

And since tonight is the pinnacle of fashion events for the year, I thought I’d post my red carpet review.

This year the theme is Manus X Machina (aka the intersection of fashion and technology) and I know visiting the exhibit will be on the top of my NYC plans this summer for sure. Here’s Vogue’s exclusive peek at the exhibit. Can you say gorge??

And on top of that, the documentary about the gala prep (First Monday in May) will be released on iTunes tomorrow– so excited for that. #fashionobsessed

Now onto my review:

Che688DU8AAtxm4 Oh wow, first arrivals and killing it: Anna Wintour in Chanel Haute Couture and her daughter Bee Shaffer in Alexander McQueen. Both stunning.  But when can Miss Wintour do wrong with fashion??? (The answer is never.)

gallery-1462228713-gettyimages-527337240 There’s something about Alicia Vikander’s Louis Vuitton dress that I kind of like…. I’m normally not a fan of the mismatched look, but there’s something here that is so edgy and it does fit with the gala theme that just works…

gallery-1462227541-gettyimages-527325454 Poppy Delevingne’s Marchesa dress is gorge! The whole look is ahmazing, but then again Marchesa is one of my all-time favorite formalwear designers. I’m not a huge fan of the chunky necklaces though…

ChfJudaUkAAN4z7 Co-chair Taylor Swift in Louis Vuitton: love it! I haven’t been the biggest fan of her new platinum ‘do, but here, it’s growing on me as it perfectly matches the vibe of her edgy dress… and THOSE SHOES.

ChfQwAKWgAEjYw1 Love Karlie Kloss’ cape over the dress. Super sophisticated, but as soon as she removed the cape, it becomes a super sleek, tailored dress with cutouts galore. Stunning. And for the after party, Brandon Maxwell literally just cut off the bottom half– and it still looked just as amazing.

ChfQxZDVEAA-WDZ Heartthrob status on Nick Jonas. That is all.

gettyimages-527343816 Rose Byrne gives Old Hollywood glam here and I’m digging its vibe from the classic silhouette, and simple hairstyle.

ChfMmxbUgAAepQE Selena Gomez in Louis Vuitton just doesn’t work for me. One, it looks a little too informal for this famous gala. Two, it more closely resembles the punk theme a few years ago. And three, the other Louis girls have way better gowns tonight.

gallery-1462230991-gettyimages-527338244 Chloe Grace Moretz stuns in this gown. I’m obsessed. More than that, I want it. That is all. Hair, markup, wardrobe is pure perfection on the teen.

gallery-1462230797-gettyimages-527343770 From Selena Gomez’s bridal gown from last year, Vera Wang has taken a page from past Gala hits for Rita Ora this year. I just feel like it’s too much of a repeat from prior years, but it is impeccably tailored.

gallery-1462230873-gettyimages-527338072 Saoirse Ronan has gone— I don’t even know how to explain this. Yes, it’s high fashion, but does it have too much going on, I wonder? Between the feathers, the brooch, the collar– I wonder if it’s all too much together.

ChfLJG4WYAEv3XM Like a high fashion version of the Hamilton ensemble outfit. Is SJP trying to predict Tony noms for the show??? (which are announced tomorrow morning) But seriously, all I see HAMILTON. Someone please back me up– right???

gallery-1462232686-gettyimages-527344724 Kendall Jenner: the one Kardashian-Jenner sister with a bonafide career and she has the worst dress of her sisters… How did her sisters who are only really known for their E! show and social media get gorgeous custom Balmain gowns?? I just don’t understand.

gettyimages-527344554_master Hailey Baldwin looks like a glittery referee with Angelina Jolie’s leg slit, and I’m not feeling the look. Last year, I loved her Topshop mini, but she’s gone downhill this year.

gallery-1462232767-gettyimages-527344682 Kylie Jenner: congrats on being the best dressed Kardashian-Jenner sister at the gala! Her Balmain gown is impeccable and the bob shows a simplistic elegance that we’ve never seen on Kylie– but it looks ahmazing: welcome to the #BalmainArmy, Kylie.

gallery-1462232219-gettyimages-527344450 Love Demi Lovato’s black, gold and silver sequined gown with the slicked-back bob. Looks so chic.

ChfPlujXEAc3QFc Zoe Saldana’s TRAIN, oh my gosh! Truly stunning. The showstopper of the night for sure!

 

ChfU17DWkAAcUIo Kerry Washington debuts her baby bump tonight and some awesome purple hair! Love the dress, mesh gloves and the purple hair! A fashionista per usual…

ChfOYyzWUAEKiFL Jourdan Dunn: love her Balmain gown and her highlighted bob!

gallery-1462234323-gettyimages-527358752 Luptia N’yongo looks like a Disney princess in the emerald Calvin Klein gown! Gorge.

gallery-1462235072-gettyimages-527358312 Wow, love Karolina Kurkova’s Marchesa gown! Truly stunning.

gettyimages-527367856 High fashion it couple alert? Congrats to Zayn on his first Met Gala and I’m kind of digging the cool, edgy vibe of the “robot” arm thing? It looks super haute couture. He looks like a badass in Versace. But, Gigi decided to play it really safe and matronly– in other words, boring. I’m sorry, she’s 21: you should be taking fashion risks, like your boyfriend.

gettyimages-527359624 Matching baby bumps for Emily Blunt and Olivia Wilde! Both beautiful gowns, but meh, not very exciting.

gallery-1462236968-gettyimages-527368416 Beyonce in Givenchy wins. Per usual, Givenchy knows how to create a showstopping gown and so does Mrs. Carter.

gallery-1462236615-gettyimages-527368044 I don’t care it’s it’s Kanye West– you don’t wear RIPPED JEANS and denim jacket to the MET GALA. Are you crazy, Kanye? And Kim’s look is too… blah, not a fan.

gallery-1462237374-gettyimages-527368274 I sort of like Kate Hudson’s gown? It’s very high fashion, yes, but I think it’s a little to many weird cutouts and pieces hanging off that take it to a level that I’m not a huge fan of… And the shape and color is reading bridal to me?

gallery-1462236363-gettyimages-527367920 Blake Lively is normally one of my style icons who can do no wrong as is Burberry, but this is just…. eh…. I don’t like how the photographers captured the train tulle thing. From other angles, it looks so elegant, but here it looks like way too much. But, great, sleek hair, makeup and earrings.

ChfkavkWMAIaNq_ How iconic for Marc Jacobs to walk the carpet with Bette Midler?? Legend. And he did a great job with her couture dress and headpiece.

Overall, some good, some bad, some meh– but all in all, there was no shortage of high fashion, which is just as I like it.

Those are some of my thoughts! Check out all the arrivals on Vogue for more fashion goodness.

Oscar Sunday: All the best and worst red carpet looks at the 2016 Academy Awards

It’s officially Oscar Sunday, which means the endless commercials for the show will finally end, OR that my red carpet review is finally here! Yay, let’s get started!

rs_634x1024-160228152919-634-Academy-Awards-Oscars-alicia-vinkander.cm.228 Nominee Alicia Vikander is one of the first stars to arrive and stuns in this CUSTOM Luis Vuitton gown. Normally, yellow doesn’t look quite right on the red carpet, but here: it’s flawless and looks stunning. Her beauty look is also fabulous. But, when does she ever look bad on the red carpet? Never. (And I can vouch for that, from actually seeing her dressed for a red carpet in person.) Maybe that’s why I like it: she’s like a real life Belle from Beauty and the Beast!!

rs_634x1024-160228153704-634-sofia-vergara-2016-oscars-academy-awards-mh-022816 Sofia Vergara has clearly found her signature Marchesa silhouette, but no complaints, because it looks stunning. Well, less so in print– the actual footage looks so fluid and gorgeous. But, Marchesa can do no wrong in my book.

DaisyRidley Daisy Ridley of the latest Star Wars film… Well, I have not seen the film, but her dress is stunning with the color, detail and her cool updo. However, I’m not a big fan of the extra tulle at the bottom or around her middle like a pseudo-peplum.

rs_634x1024-160228154914-634-2016-oscars-academy-awards-Priyanka-Chopra I like Priyanka Chopra’s Zuhair Muraid dress, but again, I think that has more to do with the fact of how the famed designer can do no wrong in my opinion.

rs_634x1024-160228155024-634.Olivia-Wilde-Oscars-2016-Academy-Awards I’m not the biggest fan of Olivia Wilde’s Valentino dress.It’s just too much, between the open-neck top, the pleated skirt, the back mini-cape, the hair and the choker. Way too much to look at, and that doesn’t help the overall aesthetic.

rs_634x1024-160228155016-634-Academy-Awards-Oscars-saorise-ronan.cm.228 Saoirse Ronan (Pop quiz! Who can pronounce her name correctly? The Irish pronunciation.) is definitely one of my favorites so far with the glittery green CUSTOM Calvin Klein dress, an homage to Ireland. The dress, hair, makeup and earrings all work together and create a stunning red carpet look.

rs_634x1024-160228160052-634-2016-oscars-academy-awards-naomi-watts I really like Naomi Watts’ dress, sparkles and all. Normally, I’m not a fan of multicolored dresses, but this slight purple ombre isn’t taking it to a costume-y level and it works, and looks perfectly tailored.

rs_634x1024-160228160619-634-Academy-Awards-Oscars-olivia-munn.cm.228 Olivia Munn looks perfectly chic in this bright orange Stella McCartney. However, the one-sleeve looks like a sling?

rs_634x1024-160228160745-634.Eddie-Redmayne-2016-Oscars-Academy-Awards eddie-redmayne_hannah-redmayne_gettyimages-512912988 Eddie Redmayne looks adorable in a velvet Alexander McQueen suit. Nothing new here, so I’ll leave you to resume staring at the dapper Dad-to-be, whom I met. (Just felt the need to throw that out there again…)

rs_634x1024-160228161902-634-brie-larson-Academy-Awards-Oscars-cm.228  CcV2eqbWIAAfm0T Wow, Brie Larson looks gorge in royal blue Gucci, with the beaded belt and simple slicked back hair. Wow, stunning.  But, who remembers pre-teen Brie as an attempted pop star?? That’s the real question here.

rs_634x1024-160228161342-634-isla-fisher-2016-oscars-academy-awards-mh-022816 One word to describe Isla Fisher: meh. It’s okay, not superb, not terrible; just eh.

rs_634x1024-160228160907-634-2016-oscars-academy-awards-heidi-klum First hot mess dress of the night goes to Heidi Klum. Wow, yikes– this is like a bad prom/bridesmaid dress that no one wanted. The different tulle colors, the big flowers, the awkward cleavage/belly cutout and the vintage puffy sleeve, all together just doesn’t work. Blech.

CcV98YhWEAAbOUU First family photo!! Pregnant Chrissy Teigen poses in her stunning, tailored Marchesa dress with her hubby John Legend.

rs_634x1024-160228162256-634-2016-oscars-academy-awards-margot-robbie Margot Robbie stuns in Oscar gold, however, the black purse with a long tassle, doesn’t fit with the color of the dress. But, the dress is gorge, I just feel like I’ve seen it before.

CcV5ZdHWIAAMPQg Nine-year-old Jacob Tremblay is adorable. And look at him posing; so cute! Too Precious. ❤

rs_634x1024-160228163603-634-2016-oscars-academy-awards-julianne-moore Love last year’s Best Actress, Julianne Moore, red carpet look. The Chanel dress is gorge for the actress.

cate-blanchett Cate Blanchett’s gown and complete look is gorgeous. Wow, very different from everyone else, but it’s gorgeous: all the details, the color, her simplistic elegant hairstyle. Stunning.

rs_634x1024-160228164255-634-2016-oscars-academy-awards-rachel-mcadams CcV8ifcWEAEeAUg THAT TRAIN THOUGH… Representing the incredible film “Spotlight,” making her Oscar Nominee debut is Rachel McAdams who looks stunning in a deep emerald dress with the now infamous Angelina Jolie leg slit, long drop earrings and tightly secured updo.

rs_634x1024-160228164429-634-tina-fey-2016-oscars-academy-awards-mh-022816 Tina Fey stuns in purple. It’s very simplistic, but I’ll forgive since she is just there as a presenter.

rs_634x1024-160228165215-634-2016-oscars-academy-awards-lady-gaga Lady Gaga’s gown looks stunning– oh wait– it’s a pantsuit. INSTANTLY MAKES THE LOOK EVEN BETTER. PERFECTION.

rs_634x1024-160228165526-634-2016-oscars-academy-awards-emily-blunt Baby bump alert! Love Emily Blunt’s cute pale pink, beaded Prada dress with wavy hairstyle. Gorge.

CcWCe7OWEAAycdd Don’t hate me: but Kate Winslet’s gown looks like a trash bag. A literal garbage bag, and her hair looks unbrushed. Normally, the talented actress looks stunning, but that can’t be said tonight.

rs_634x1024-160228165015-634-jared-leto-2016-oscars-academy-awards-mh-022816 Jared Leto looks so cool with his suit’s red piping and a flower instead of a tie. Epic. Edgy.

Time for the show to start! Got your Oscar ballots ready? Who will take home the golden honor tonight?

Think in GOLD: All about the talented music folk at the 2016 Grammys

Tonight’s the Grammys. So, my red carpet commentary has returned. Let’s get started!

gettyimages-510437992 Kacey Musgraves: Well, her hair and makeup look simplistic yet really pretty. I’m not a fan of the dress– it’s the sparkles and the colors…

Here’s what it resembles to me:

Unknown

Doesn’t it though? I’m not sure looking like a childhood picture book is what every Hollywood starlet wants to resemble on music’s biggest night…

gettyimages-510436478 Charlie Puth: One, I’m totally obsessing over his voice and latest hits on the radio! And second, I love that he’s wearing a GLITTER suit! So epic! And cool for a guy. It’s so easy for a guy to throw on a plain tux, but he’s made fashion for guys and way less mundane than most men on a red carpet.

CbSwpQ5XEAAlj78 #BFFGoals, anyone? Besties Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez show up totally glam in their bright-colored gowns. As Gomez told Ryan Seacrest, she chose her Calvin Klein sparkly blue dress by asking herself, ‘What would I do if I was going on a date…and my date is Taylor Swift.’ And who else could rock a crop top/color-blocking gown (Atelier Versace) on a red carpet like Swift? But, I’m not a huge fan of her hair cut… Don’t get me wrong, it’s well done; I just don’t like how it resembles a vintage-y vibe, yet that’s not really her brand anymore?? But, I’ll forgive since everything else is impeccable.

rs_634x1024-160215153512-634-2016-Grammy-Awards-carrie-underwood Carrie Underwood going “Old Hollywood Glam” in a black strapless gown, an Angelina Jolie leg slit, with a chic bob. But, when does she ever look bad on a red carpet? Next.

rs_634x1024-160215151408-634-elle-king-2016-grammy-awards-arrivals-21516 Oh boy, Elle King… *shaking my head* Wow oh wow, this is um…. a hot mess? There’s just so much happening, with different lengths, fringy, feathers, lace– it’s just way too much. Blech: hurts my eyes a little.

rs_634x1024-160215150941-634-2016-Grammy-Awards-tori-kelly Tori Kelly looks stunning! Also, embracing her inner “Old Hollywood” actress vibe in this green, fitted gown. While it may be a bit much for the funky awards, she is nominated for New Artist, so I’ll let her have this one, since it’s such a huge moment for the new singer…

rs_634x1024-160215160529-634-adele-grammy-awards-arrivals-21516 OH MY GOSH, Adele in this Givenchy is perfection!! Not to mention it’s a CUSTOM gown. Wow, she looks incredible. Gorgeous. End of story.

rs_634x1024-160215162458-634.demi-lovato.cm.21516 Newcomer to the Grammys, Demi Lovato looks flawless in her tailored gown/suit look. And her hair is perfection. However, what is the chain necklace thing with the three pop tabs in the middle? Is she raising awareness for the Ronald McDonald House? (I mean that would be great, but I’m not sure if that’s what it really is…)

Screen Shot 2016-02-15 at 8.00.12 PM John Legend and Chrissy Teigen always look flawless on the red carpet and here is no exception. It’s just extra adorable with added element of being their first family red carpet photo.

CbTD3w5WcAEWaPK Speaking of adorable family photos- Justin Bieber playing with his little brother is the cutest.

Now off to watch the award show, and see the cast of Hamilton kill it live from NYC! (Side note: if you can get tickets in Manhattan, seriously, go see Hamilton. You won’t be sorry, and this performance will surely prove it.)

Award season is upon us– Golden Globes 2016 Red Carpet Looks

The Golden Globes have officially started, so it’s time for my red carpet roundup! So many gorgeous gowns, so let’s get started.

CYZo5eOWMAAZT4k Jennifer Lawrence’s look is pretty, however, I feel like I’ve seen this type of look on her before: red dress, thick necklace and slicked-back short hair. It looks good, don’t get me wrong. But, it’s sort of a yawn.

Zendaya-definitely-stood-out-tiered-Marchesa-number First off, LOVE Zendaya’s Marchesa dress! Georgina Chapman can do no wrong in terms of gorgeous clothes. But, why is she there? Has she done anything recently? (Just wondering.)

gettyimages-504387952 GORGEOUS… from the front. When Olivia Wilde turns around you see an awkward messy ponytail, barely holding anything in place. I speak from experience, when I’ve done that, the ponytail holder barely stays in my hair. But, back to the dress: gorgeous; just maybe lose the necklace with the halter necklace.

Screen Shot 2016-01-10 at 7.58.29 PM Jaime Alexander looks stunning in her black and emerald gown with her updo. Bravo, you made my best dressed list.

gettyimages-504365672 Sophia Bush looks stunning in all black, very old Hollywood glam.

Screen Shot 2016-01-10 at 7.58.21 PM Bryce Dallas Howard is just like us! She bought her dress days ago from Neiman Marcus to have options as a “size 6.” And she looks just as glam as those in custom dresses.

gettyimages-504392396 Amy Adams, wearing a dress that matches her hair, looks elegant as well.

gettyimages-504387632 Natalie Dormer from Game of Thrones. Now, I’ve never seen the hit HBO show, but I’m loving her (or her stylist’s) sense of style as of late! And this gown is no exception… Except the black sparkly chest plate. The dress would have been more elegant sans chestplate/ sewn-in necklace.

Screen Shot 2016-01-10 at 7.58.12 PM Emmy Rossum looks pretty, however, didn’t J.Law wear this last year at the Oscars? I think so. And it looked better then.

gettyimages-504391294 Jennifer Lopez… DOES SHE EVEN AGE? Like, serious question. Also, how many people can pull off wearing a MUSTARD-colored dress? I’ll tell you who: J.Lo, end of story.

gettyimages-504365804 Gina Rodriguez looks princessy in her Zac Posen gown. It’s fitted well and I love the off-the-shoulder sleeves, the color, her hair and jewelry. Also, her show is hilarious. If you haven’t see Jane the Virgin by now: you must.

Screen Shot 2016-01-10 at 7.57.59 PM Laverne Cox looks gorgeous in her white gown. Beautiful.

gettyimages-504388758 Kirsten Dunst: love this dress, however, the photos don’t do the dress justice: the back is gorgeous with all its details!

Screen Shot 2016-01-10 at 7.56.40 PM gettyimages-504390374-1 The Tatums. Jenna stuns in this Zuhair Murad gown. It is breathtaking. Once again, she takes the cake for best dressed. Not so lucky: her husband’s hair. That weird swoopy dark part: no.

Screen Shot 2016-01-10 at 7.57.47 PM Alicia Vikander dazzles in an all-white Louis Vuitton ensemble. Perfection. Nothing else to say.

Screen Shot 2016-01-10 at 7.57.53 PM There’s something I like about Malin Akerman’s dress… It’s probably the peplum. I’m a sucker for a good, tailored peplum ensemble.

Screen Shot 2016-01-10 at 7.57.41 PM Kate Bosworth looks gorgeous in her very sparkly, floral dress and I like it. However, her neck is too bare without her hair down or a necklace: something needs to occupy that awkward space.

Screen Shot 2016-01-10 at 7.57.11 PM Saorise Ronan looks fab in the Yves Saint Laurent gown. Like a true grecian goddess. Question: during her category, how badly will they butcher her name?

Screen Shot 2016-01-10 at 7.57.22 PM Brie Larson looks like a Golden Globe statue! I like the dress, just not the cutouts, but I’ll forgive it, as it still looks stunning.

Screen Shot 2016-01-10 at 7.58.05 PM Leslie Mann is in a classic Monique Lhullier gown. Love the tulle and the bottom of the dress! But, the top? Not so much. It’s way too plain, and the necklace that touches the collar? No.

Screen Shot 2016-01-10 at 7.56.08 PM Taraji P. Henson in Stella McCartney. Also wearing all white, but this one doesn’t work as well as Laverne Cox’s. It’s too plain, too boring. And her handbag is too clunky.

Screen Shot 2016-01-10 at 7.56.17 PM Cate Blanchett looks matronly here. It looks like a dowdy grandmother’s pajamas; worst dressed list for me. I think, there’s just too much going on from the the print, the fringy part, the cape thing and bejeweled neckline: it’s way too overwhelming.

Screen Shot 2016-01-10 at 7.56.29 PMAnother Kate (Hudson) arrives in a two-piece dress. That’s new. And matching choker. Again, I’d prefer to see one dress (and no choker), but she looks pretty, so I’ll forgive.

Screen Shot 2016-01-10 at 7.56.23 PM Rooney Mara looks so haute couture in her beige gown with a slicked back bun and deep, dark lip.

tumblr_inline_o0rfxbj8gV1tcrqfn_1280 Supergirl herself, Melissa Benoist, and her boyfriend? husband? fiance? Blake Jenner, of Glee fame. Love her Monique Lhullier gown, his dapper tux and her hit CBS show with Broadway album Jeremy Jordan.

tumblr_inline_o0rk5mVOuX1tcrqfn_1280 Love Rachel McAdams’ floral gown. So pretty and way different from anyone else’s on the carpet.

tumblr_inline_o0ridqAhuD1tcrqfn_1280 Miss Golden Globes, Jamie Foxx’s daughter, Corinne. Love her dress, it’s gorgeous. But, didn’t last year’s Miss Globes wear a similar one? Just checking.

Screen Shot 2016-01-10 at 8.26.05 PM Uzo Aduba looks chic and elegant in her black sparkly number and the cape looks perfect!

gallery-1452473938-gettyimages-504393142 Katy Perry in custom Prada; love the bow detail on the back! However, not loving the bump-it do. And the Barbie-pink color or the plain dress.

Screen Shot 2016-01-10 at 8.28.34 PM Adorable couple Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney look like Hollywood royalty tonight.

So many amazing looks tonight! What gowns stood out to you?
