Let’s wrap things up now…
Heidi Klum in Calvin Klein Collection
I’m going to be up front with you…I did not watch the People’s Choice Awards last night nor did I plan on doing a red carpet post today. However, after browsing the photos and being quite impressed with the risks people took on the red carpet last night (regardless of whether they paid off or not) I just couldn’t help myself. And of course this isn’t the entire list of people who attended the awards show last night…but it’s the people who the dresses that matter, in the best or worst ways possible.
Vanessa Hudgens in Jenny Packham
An awkward hemline and boring shoes, but the fit of this dress is stunning. The detailing on the bodice is dramatic enough to make this black dress really stick out. I’ve seen better, but I’ve seen worse.
I actually don’t mind the dress…it’s very MKO (vintage and oversized) but the green accessories paired with this red dress? Come on. You can’t help but think, CHRISTMAS. And are those bells sticking out of the necklace and bracelet? This outfit is only appropriate on December 25th (if that).
She always means well. Leighton truly thinks she’s making fashionable choices, but unfortunately the styling is always all wrong. From the neck up you’d think she’s wearing a flowing gold strapless gown, and from the neck down you’d think she’s about to start torturing you…with a whip.
Lea always looks gorgeous on the red carpet. I will give her that. But this is way too understated for the Met Gala. I know she can do better.
Nothing is working for me here. Pink bag with a pink dress, then red lips, with crazy floral shoulder detailing and that neck wrap…it’s just too much! Sorry JLo…I’d stick to the sequins you’re used to.
Waist up is gorgeous. Waist down is a disaster.
The same rules apply to SJP as they do to Iman. You do not criticize, you just admire.
I really do appreciate what she’s trying to do here. I actually love this dress on its own, I think the shoes are awesome, but the face she’s giving with her odd haircut kind of scares me. I’m not a huge fan of this hair style so it automatically makes me hate this overall look.
So angelic. This event is meant for people like Florence Welch. It’s her look, and she owns it.
Not the biggest fan of a the long sleeve one-shoulder dress, however this one is a gorgeous color and I love the pleating. Eva looks pretty, but it’s now wowing me.
Look out for part 3 coming soon!
The 83rd Annual Academy Awards (or the Oscars if you will) were held last night at the Kodak Theatre. I thought Anne Hathaway and James Franco made a great team hosting the event (they definitely made it “hip” as intended). People won, people lost, but most importantly…there was a lot of red carpet coverage.
Let’s see who got it right, who almost got it, and who I just didn’t get…
At first, the circular detail in the front confused me, but it’s one of those dresses that the more I look at it, the more I love it. She has that simple look to her where she could pull something off like this. And I think it’s perfection. A Givenchy Couture dress can be a risk in itself but she definitely pulled it off. One of my favorites from the night!
This is the best she has looked on the red carpet in a long time. I guess when you’re nominated for best supporting actress at the Oscars, you gotta step up your game. I love the color, the silhouette is perfection, the slit adds a little sexiness, and I think the hair and makeup is great. My only problem is the necklace…it’s just not necessary, but otherwise it’s amazing!
I love Anne Hathaway. She rarely makes a red carpet mistake (maybe because her stylist is the super fabulous celeb stylist, Rachel Zoe). I was very surprised to see an archived gown (that wasn’t technically vintage) from her, but she definitely pulled it off. Anne looks even better than the original model who wore this dress, and I think it works. I’m never a fan of red on the red carpet but it’s Anne and she can do no wrong.
This is her look and I wouldn’t want her to dress is anything that wasn’t “her,” but she could have chosen something that wasn’t this matronly. This look would be perfect for a woman age 60+ but not for a young celeb like Florence. Even in her Givenchy Couture dress she wore to the Grammys, the sheerness of the bottom and in the sleeves gave it some sex appeal but this Valentino dress is just way too covered up.
When I first saw her on the red carpet, I wasn’t 100% sold…but about one minute later I was completely hooked. It’s an interesting neckline, the liquid effect of this dress looks amazing on her, and I think the stick-straight hair is perfect for this dress. I saw a close up of the earrings and they were huge, looked like some kind of animal, but I kind of loved them. My only comment is that the brooch at the hips is not doing anything for me.
First of all, I thought it was so cute she helped design this dress. I heard she was wearing Marchesa before I saw her on the red carpet and I wasn’t sure if the choice would be age appropriate for her, but this is so perfect for Hailee. She looks like a little princess and I just love it. I think she’s adorable but I cannot get past the headband! If she had a cute little jeweled Jennifer Behr piece, she would be one of my best dressed picks. But that headband looks like she picked it up at Walgreens in a 3-pack on the way to the awards!
Can you look at Halle Berry and say she looks bad? Just try to look at her and say “ew.” You can’t. She look stunning. This dress is beautiful. It looks a little disheveled at the bottom but I’m not totally hating that aspect. It’s Halle Berry. That is all you need to know.
This one is difficult for me to judge, because I think Hillary looks beautiful, I am in love with this dress (I live for feathers) but I don’t like them together. I just don’t think a metallic beaded dress with feathers is very Hillary Swank. I would have loved this dress on someone like Anne Hathaway but it just doesn’t feel Swanky to me.
Remember when I said I don’t like red on the red carpet? Well this is orange/red. And I still don’t like it. She looks gorgeous and confident, which is always important, but I know she can do better than this. And pairing this with purple shoes? That is something I just don’t understand.
As I’ve mentioned before, I normally do not like red on the red carpet (or ever…red dresses can easily look tacky). I am also not one for minimalism. When it comes to accessorizing, I live by “the more, the merrier.” But you know what? Surprisingly, I love this look. Maybe because this dress fits her PERFECTLY. Maybe because the hair and makeup is stunning. Maybe both? Just gorgeous.
Keep checking back for PART 2 coming soon!
I must start off by saying this…is there anything Kim Kardashian hasn’t done? She has her own clothing line, a collaboration with a clothing line, [had] a credit card, her own fragrance, makes appearances, covers magazines, and I’m sure one million other things I can’t think of. My question for you Kim is…what’s next?
That’s enough of that…let’s check out Kim on the cover of Glamour‘s February issue.
My favorites from the photo spread…
And now for what Kim has to say…
On her success…
“I’d be foolish not to take some of these opportunities that are coming my way. We all know this can go away at any moment.”
On her sisters…
“We work really hard, and we fight like normal sisters fight, and we make up. We’re so supportive of each other. We always stick together. Having lots of siblings is like having built-in best friends.”
“It’s easier to just be single and not have a relationship. How do you get to know someone on a reality show? Some people think that they can handle it, and then they really can’t.”
On being a sex symbol…
“It’s definitely powerful. I don’t find myself as sexy as everyone thinks. I’m a lot more insecure than people would assume, but with little stupid things. When I get dressed, I’m always so indecisive.”
On being in Playboy…
“It was an independence thing for me. I was always by the book, such the straight arrow when it came to pleasing my parents and being a good daughter. I felt like this was one decision that only I could make. And I think it looks great. I’ll have those pictures forever.”
On having every aspect of her family’s life recorded…
“If there’s something that we’re going through, it’s going to get out anyway. It’ll be on the cover of a tabloid, and it’ll be twisted the completely wrong way. So why not tell our story?”
On women being comfortable with their body…
“It’s a process. You have to learn to accept it. You have to learn to like what you see in the mirror. There are definitely times when I don’t feel like myself, but you have to fake it until you make it.”
On what she thought she’d be doing at 30…
“If you had asked me five years ago what I would be doing at 30, I would have said, ‘Married with a kid or two.’ Not in a million years did I dream that I would be doing all the things that I’m doing.”
The February issue of Glamour will be available on newsstands nationwide January 11.
