Red Carpet Fashion: Cannes 2013 (Part 2)

Because Cannes is the red carpet that never ends (but it finally ended last week) it’s time to round up the final looks of the film festival, including the closing ceremonies and the amfAR gala. Besides the Oscars and the Met Ball of course, this is one my favorite red carpet events. The fact that it’s in France definitely brings out more fashion (maybe we should have the Oscars in Paris next year)…and I appreciate any red carpet that’s not full of sparkly strapless gowns. You know how those thrill me.

Be sure to check out part 1 (which includes Julianne Moore’s toe scandal) and now, let’s move on to part 2.

Red Carpet Fashion: Cannes 2013

Cannes is like the Oscars’ cool older [French] sister. Celebrities gather to celebrate great films, but really they just want to out-do each other in the best borrowed gowns they can find.

Now I don’t think anyone can top Diane Kruger from last year; she just killed it one look after the next. BUT I have high hopes for this year. Let’s see who’s wearing what…

Red Carpet Fashion: 2013 Grammy Awards

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…

Red Carpet Fashion: 2012 Emmys (Part 1)

The first major awards show of the season, the Emmys, were last night. The red carpet was full of bordeux, yellow, some shamefull beaded turquoise numbers and a pleasantly surprising influx of J. Mendel.

Like I tweeted last night, I feel like with the rise of social media, the increasing popularity of red carpet coverage along with things like Fashion Police, celebrities are less willing to take a risk when it comes to these events. You would think it might have the opposite effect but let’s be honest…no one wants to be bashed on national television. So, gone are the days of Bjork’s swan dress and JLo’s extreme low cut Versace caftan….it looks like a red carpet full of ruching, jewel tones and strapless gowns is in our future for the long haul.

Now that my rant is out of the way (thanks for listening), let’s get to the judging.
