Never have I ever…written about the Billboard Music Awards (until today). I always find it ironic that music and fashion go hand-in-hand yet the music awards shows bring out the tackiest of the red carpet (even the Grammys…which is the “classiest” of said awards shows). HOWEVER, so much went down at the Billboard Music Awards last night (well two major things I know about…as I didn’t actually watch…the weather was too nice to be inside!) that I couldn’t help myself but write about the red carpet today. Celebrity style, a big announcement plus the most highly anticipated music video of 2015…let’s do it.
Ah, the Met Gala. The most glorious and glamorous night of the year. Who needs actresses in borrowed gowns (re: Oscars) when you have actors / models / singers / designers / socialites / people you’ve never heard of with fabulous names in the most incredible borrowed gowns? Plus, at $25k a ticket you know they’re not going to skimp on accessories. We have a lot of looks to get through so let’s get to it!
With my absolute favorite fashion event of the year coming up in exactly one week, this seemed like perfect timing to talk about the best Met Ball red carpet looks of all time. Because I can’t wait another week for a red carpet post, here it goes…
During fashion month, we talk about three things — 1. the collections (because isn’t that what’s it’s all about?) 2. street style (what happens outside the shows has now become just as important as what happens on the runway, whether we like it or not) and 3. celebrity sightings…but mostly just Kim K’s new platinum hair (Jared too!) The beauty scene doesn’t get as much attention, so today I thought we’d change all that.
The Oscars are always bittersweet, as it’s the most anticipated red carpet event of the year (besides the Met Ball, of course) but it also marks the end of red carpet season. This particular event has been less than exciting in recent years, but whether you liked the dresses or not, we saw more risks than usual last night…and guess what? I DIG IT. So let’s talk about it!
