Red Carpet Fashion: 2014 Grammys

The 3 1/2 hour concert also known as the Grammys happened last night. All that was missing was Blue Ivy featuring Jay-Z and Beyonce. That, and the lack of fashion folks on the red carpet (like Rihanna, Lady Gaga and Bey herself) was pretty disappointing. But at least I learned about some new people (and by that I mean I didn’t know about half the people on the red carpet).

So most importantly, let’s see who wore what…shall we?

The Outnet Clearance Sale

Oscar for under $400? Pucci for under $150? McQueen for $120? Yes it’s true! The Outnet is already a great resource for buying discounted designer fashion, but every once in a while they’ll take it even further and offer 80-85% off for their clearance sales. And it’s happening right now…only until this Saturday!

I scoured all 25 pages of the clearance sale to bring you the best of the best. Take serious advantage of this. Doesn’t come around very often!

Red Carpet Fashion: 2011 Emmy Awards (Part 2)

If you haven’t yet, I highly suggest checking out part 1 of my Emmy red carpet commentary but I’m assuming you’ve been there, done that…so let’s move on shall we?

Photobucket Jane Lynch in David Meister

Not the worst thing I’ve ever seen her wear. The color actually looks good on her, but it’s just so hard for me to take her seriously in a gown. She should just wear tracksuits all the time.

Photobucket Heather Morris

I don’t know who she’s wearing, which is probably a good thing because I may seriously offend this person. This looks like a Project Runway DISASTER. As Heidi would say, auf wiedersehen!

PhotobucketGwyneth Paltrow in Pucci

I have a feeling I will get shit for this, but Gwyneth is one of my best dressed picks for the night. It could have to do with the fact I was bored to tears with the dresses so just seeing this gave me some hope not everyone in television is super boring. It’s different. It may be weird. But I’m kind of weird…and I love this look. Note that I would probably hate this on just about everyone but it works for HER.

PhotobucketGiuliana Rancic in Roberto Cavalli

I’m not the biggest Cavalli fan, just because his dresses are not very tasteful in my eyes. But this is actually beautiful and classy, which works for Giuliana. It’s another red gown but she looks gorgeous in it.

Photobucket Evan Rachel Wood in Elie Saab

Very old Hollywood glam…she looks gorgeous. Not like it’s anything new and original, but it’s pretty and the dress fits her like a glove.

PhotobucketElizabeth Moss in Marchesa

Didn’t Kelly Osbourne make a big deal how Marchesa only dressed ONE person for the Emmys and that ONE person was Lea Michele? Well Kelly…it looks like your sources were incorrect (unless they said Marchesa dressed one person WELL…then they were right).

PhotobucketDianna Agron in Roksanda Ilincic

In my last post I said I liked Katie Holmes’s dress because it wasn’t shiny…and this is exactly what I was comparing it to. Why do people like shiny silk on the red carpet? You have  thousands of dresses to choose from and you pick the most standard material that’s never flattering. I just don’t get it! And ps. I hate the hair.

Who were your best dressed picks for the night? Let me know in the comments section below. And be on the look out for part 3 of my Emmys red carpet commentary coming soon!

Red Carpet Fashion: 2011 Met Gala (Part 3)

This is the last red carpet fashion post for the Met Gala. Any previous coverage has been posted in best dressed, part 1 and part 2. Hope you’ve enjoyed the fashion as much as I have!

Enjoy part 3…

Emma Roberts in Michael Kors

I’ve really been loving Emma’s red carpet choices lately. She looks stunning in this Michael Kors gown and it fits her perfectly. However, this could have been worn to just about any red carpet event and she could have done more for the Met Gala.

Dianna Agron in Michael Kors

I love Glee, but I find Dianna’s red carpet choices to be quite boring. She looks gorgeous and it’s a pretty dress but again, IT’S THE MET GALA PEOPLE. Time to step it up!

Photobucket

Daphne Guinness in Alexander McQueen

Now THIS is someone I can always count on to make a statement. She got dressed for the Met Gala in the Barneys windows…it doesn’t get more statement-making than that. This was the perfect dress to wear when making a tribute to her good friend and late designer, Alexander McQueen.

Photobucket

Dakota Fanning in Valentino

I actually think this dress is perfect for the occasion. It looks gorgeous on her, but is she not wearing ANY makeup? I mean come on…if you’re going to put the effort into wearing a gown like this, at least do something with the hair and makeup.

Photobucket

Ciara in Prabal Gurung

I love this dress, especially because I appreciate some Prabal on the red carpet, but the jewelry completely ruins the look. I’m not sure if that’s one large cuff or several bracelets, either way they are completely unnecessary. If the jewelry choices were different, this may have made best dressed! (okay that and a different hair style)

Photobucket

Christina Ricci in Zac Posen

I actually don’t love this dress and I can’t help but think of the movie Beetlejuice, but it is THE ultimate Met Gala gown. It’s dramatic and makes a statement yet isn’t over styled. I can go either way on this…

Photobucket

Brooklyn Decker in Michael Kors

Love the dress. Indifferent about the bag. Hate the hair. However, this look would work at a more “mainstream” red carpet event (with a different hair style of course).

Photobucket

Blake Lively in custom Chanel

Don’t you wish Karl was making YOU custom Chanel gowns for fancy red carpet events? I do. But I’ll let Blake have the spotlight…for now. I wouldn’t love the dress on anyone else but she looks gorgeous…doesn’t she always though?

Photobucket

Beyonce in Emilio Pucci

Can she move? Can she breathe? This is when a size up would have been helpful. May have given this look an entirely different vibe but I just can’t help but think she’s going to pass out due to lack of air.

Photobucket

Ashley Olsen in vintage Christian Dior

I did not like this at first but I’m really growing to love it. Again, it’s fit for an Olsen and no one else, so it works here. I think it’s great how they incorporate designer vintage into modern times and it works for them. I do think she could have done with different shoes but I’ll stop being picky.

I hope you enjoyed all my 2011 Met Gala coverage. Until next year!
