Confused? It’s Couture

A lot of people say they love fashion when they really just love shopping. And that’s cool. I guess that’s how your love begins? (although I always hated shopping, until I was introduced to Limited Too…that changed everything). However, you know a true fashion enthusiast when they can look at couture and not use the WTF emoticon (which according to its 431 Facebook fans, looks like this ಠ_ಠ)

But back to couture…

Art In The Streets

Although my taste in movies isn’t what you’d consider diverse (ranging from Mean Girls all the way to Clueless), I do appreciate a good documentary. Over the weekend I discovered Exit Through the Gift Shop, a street-art-focused film, and I’m still not over it. As someone who finds much inspiration from the streets (street style, street art…I love it all) I already wish there was a sequel…or at least a reality show spin-off.

Red Carpet Fashion: 2012 Grammys

Interrupting New York Fashion Week for a red carpet fashion feature! I apologize for not live tweeting the Grammys last night, but I’m in NYC and staying at my hotel watching TV just wasn’t going to happen. BUT I decided to throw in a little red carpet fashion post in the midst of all this fashion week madness. Hope you enjoy!

Although the looks at this particular awards show are always just a tacky mess,  here are those worth discussing…

Red Carpet Fashion: 2011 Grammys (Part 2)

If you haven’t yet, check out part 1 of my red carpet commentary from last night’s Grammy Awards.

And now it’s time for part 2…

Julianne Hough in Malandrino

Standard Malandrino silhouette. Love the print. She looks gorgeous. But I expect something a little more “amped up” for the Grammys red carpet.  I also still can’t get over her dating Ryan Seacrest.

 

Katy Perry in Giorgio Armani

Katy, didn’t anyone tell you the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show was in December? You’re a few months too late…

 

Kelly Osbourne in Tadashi Shoji

I wanted to like this because I’ve really been loving Kelly Osbourne lately but that color purple, with ruffles, and a ribbon tie at the waist is just too “high school dance” for me. I think she looks gorgeous but I just don’t love the dress in that color.

 

Kim Kardashian in Kaufman Franco

Legs. Boobs. Sequins. Makeup. It’s a little “showgirly” for me but it’s Kim Kardashian…do we expect anything less?

 

Lea Michele in Emilio Pucci

Lea Michele would have to do something fashionably offensive for me to hate on her look. I would have liked a bolder shoe here but I love the cut of the dress, especially the detail at the waist, and I love that sultry berry color lipgloss. Wish they showed more of her on the Grammys red carpet.

 

Miley Cyrus in Roberto Cavalli

Whoever said that too long of extensions were in? (see Jennifer Lopez ) The dress looks tacky, there’s side boob, there are wayyyyy too many bracelets and it’s wayyyyyy too much with that sparkly dress. And pardon me for being bitchy, but it definitely looks like Miley’s been getting the late night munchies if you catch my drift…

 

Nicki Minaj in Givenchy

The next Gaga. Meaning…she can do no wrong.

 

Nicole Kidman in Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2011 Couture

Not the biggest Nicole Kidman fan and I probably would have hated this dress on anyone else but the colors, the fit and the silhouette totally work for her. I hate to say it but I really don’t find anything wrong with this look.

 

Rihanna in Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2011 Couture

Probably one of the riskiest dresses you could wear on the red carpet (which is why I had to provide a side shot as well), Rihanna pulls it off well. What can I say? It literally hits her in the “right spots” to hide what needs to be hidden, and her stylist definitely provided her with the perfect undergarments for this specific dress. A lot of people hated her hair mostly. I kind of loved it though. This dress on this girl at this event…totally works.

 

Selena Gomez in J. Mendel

Pretty dress on a pretty girl. I’d like to see her do something a little edgier or fashion forward for the red carpet. She’s young, she’s gorgeous so why not? But if it’s not her thing, I wouldn’t push it. That’s the type of stuff that sends you to rehab… (cue Lindsay Lohan jokes)

 

Well that’s all for now. Let me know who your best dressed (or worst dressed) picks were for the Grammys. Until next time!
