Bangs are one of those things that we all have debated getting at some point in our lives. Many of us have gone through with it, some may have kept them with hopes they’d get easier to maintain, and most of us have given up. But as fashion trends come and go, the same goes for beauty. Every couple of years it seems like everyone is getting bangs…and you know once Beyonce does something, the world will follow.
Whether you’re sick of hearing about it or tired from all the shows, I’m sure we could all use a fashion week break. And what better excuse than the tackiest celebrity red carpet of the year? Well I guess the number one answer would be any awards show on MTV but number two — The Grammys. Was anyone special enough to get their hands on the brand new Fall 2013 clothes for the red carpet? Let’s find out…
Adele in Valentino Spring 2013 Couture
This is the final Met Gala post (for this year at least) so I hope you’ve been enjoying them! I’d love to hear your best dressed picks in the comments section below.
Joan Smalls in Balmain
To celebrate 20 years of red soles, Christian Louboutin launched a special edition 20th anniversary collection. As you can imagine coming from someone like Louboutin, this collection is over-the-top and statement worthy. However, some of the styles are even a little too much for me!
You be the judge…
Seems like something Rihanna would try and pull off…and would ultimately fail.
Seems like something Alexa Chung would try and pull off…and would succeed.
These are actually pretty awesome. No complaints. Unfortunately I’m assuming a Kardashian already owns them…
I call these the Momsen. You know why.
No armadillos were harmed in the making of these shoes. They’re kinda like Beetlejuice gone upscale, no?
If these were in black I’d be ALL OVER them.
Beyonce can wear these while performing on stage, at a basketball game, or even running errands with baby Blue. These look like they’d be her “everyday shoe.”
If you could have just one pair from this 20th anniversary collection, which one would it be?
I should title this “black carpet fashion” but if you didn’t watch the VMAs you might be confused (the carpet was black…not red). And if you didn’t watch the VMAs, you’re very lucky because I lost several brain cells during the 2 hours (3 if you include the pre show). But let’s get down to it…it’s clear that several stylists are still on summer vacay and these “celebs” had to make due with what they had lying around (or with what people would loan them). Please note I did not include anyone from the Jersey Shore because let’s be honest…they’re all a train wreck right?
So the fashion is not the best I’ve ever seen, but thankfully there were a few people who stepped it up and made my time [somewhat] worth while.
Selena Gomez in Julien Macdonald
She’s such a cute girl and although normally safe, I do like her red carpet choices. However, this one is NOT one of them. It has a hint of Marchesa but with a darker, witch-like vibe. It’s just not her! Stick to the simple stuff Selena…you’ll thank me later.
Victoria Justice in Theia
Zero idea who this is. I’ve seen this dress a million times on the red carpet, usually worn by people I don’t know. It’s the cycle of D-list celeb fashion I guess…
Kim Kardashian in Kaufmanfranco
I had to include a photo from behind of this dress…because it’s that hideous. 4 words–Skin colored back panel.
Kelly Rowland in Falguno Shane Peacock
There’s alot going on with that dress, it’s not my favorite of the night…but DAMN she looks good.
Katy Perry in Atelier Versace
THIS came from the house of Versace? Disappointing…
JoJo in Marco Marco
I’m sorry JoJo…when did you become relevant again? I must have missed the memo. I’ll be sure to dig into my Napster playlist circa 2004. Oh and your dress looks cheap.
Britney Spears in Moschino
Considering all of her red carpet disasters in the last 5 or so years, this isn’t terrible. I would have just gone with different shoes but this is a step in the right direction.
Beyonce in Lanvin
I’m trying to find something wrong (because that’s just how I work) but I really can’t. This is absolute perfection. The color, the cut…everything. Bravo Beyonce! Oh, and congrats
Nicki Minaj in…toys?
It looked like her toy chest got angry, attacked her, taped her mouth shut and sent her to the VMAs. And I’ll leave it at that.
Keep checking back for part 2…coming soon!
