Looks I Love: NYFW (Red Carpet Edition)

It’s #FashionFriday and New York Fashion Week has officially come to an end for Fall 2017. This year fashion week kicked off on Thursday, September 7th and ended Wednesday night on September 13th. Cinq À Sept was one of the first shows and the week was full of other celebrations that tailored to Fashion Week, like Harper’s Bazaar “Icons” celebration.

While so many people flocked to New York to check out what will soon be trending in the fashion world during Spring/Summer 2018, I kept tabs on what my favorite celebrities were up to and what they were wearing.

Here’s a recap of a few of my faves! (Photos from Zimbio, unless stated otherwise)

Jamie Chung

I always look forward to Fashion Week because I know that Jamie Chung will be there! She’s made her way up the fashion totem pole and is almost always seen every year in the front row at the hottest shows.

Stylist: Jeff K. Kim. Hair: Yasmein Abdulla. Makeup: Brian Dean

She kicked off her NYFW journey at the Kate Spade Presentation, styled by her go to stylist Jeff K. Kim. Jamie wore a Kate Spade New York boho floral jacquard dress over black slacks. The dress comes with a detachable black bow at the collar, which she opted out of. But the look isn’t without a bow, as she decided to go for a black bow as a belt at the waist. The outfit was paired with appears to be a tusk colored Kate Spade “Cameron Street Jensen” tote bag.

Later that night, Jamie attended the Harper’s Bazaar “Icons” event. Styled by Jeff K. Kim with makeup done by Brian Dean, Jamie walked the red carpet with a Roberto Cavalli dress. After doing some research, this tiered, patterned dress looks like it may have been part of the Spring 2017 collection

On September 9th, Jamie showed some love to Han Chong at the Self Portrait show while rocking their Camo Lace Frill Jumpsuit. I’m loving the navy laced top as it gives the illusion that it’s a two piece outfit.

The former Gotham star was last seen front row at the Jonathan Simkhai show alongside Sabrina Carpenter, Karen Gillan, and Shay Mitchell. She wore a black Jonathan Simkhai Dimensional Lurex Trumpet Skirt, which is part of Jonathan Simkhai’s Fall/Winter 2017 line, and paired it with a grey sweater.

Favorite Look: Jonathan Simkhai
Where can we see Jamie Chung next: She can be seen on Fox’s new show The Gifted which premieres on Oct. 2, 2017.

Ashley Benson

Ashley Benson has always been and will always be one of my favorite actresses. Over the past few years, we haven’t really seen Ashley attending Fall NYFW, but now that she’s a New York resident, it was definitely a bonus to see her this year. This year she turned to stylist Tara Swennen and had Chad Wood alongside for a fresh new hairstyle!

Stylist: Tara Swennen. Hair: Chad Wood. Makeup: Todd Delano

To start off her Fashion Week experience, she attended Refinery29’s ’29Rooms: Turn It Into Art’ event with a pair of black trousers by Dorothee Schumacher and a white (or baby blue) button down top from Brunello Cucinelli. A pair of black suspenders held the outfit together. While roaming around, she was also spotted with her signature leather jacket, which always makes her look so badass.

The next day, Ashley sat front row at the Jeremy Scott show with a different look compared to the night before. She opted for a Jeremy Scott hoodie from his Fall 2017 Ready-To-Wear collection, donning the image of Jesus. Who needs pants when you have these amazing Pollice Lee “Lily” boots?!

The other half of ButtahBenzo also happened to attend W Magazine’s “It Girl” luncheon. I wasn’t able to find a full size photo of her outfit, but it looks like she may have been rocking the Fleur Du Mal Double Breasted Short Blazer Dress. Also, Chad Wood did a great job with her hair.

Where can we see Ashley Benson next: Ashley’s taking a little break, as she should, considering Pretty Little Liars lasted a while.

Shay Mitchell

A part of me is a bit bummed we didn’t get any ButtahBenzo moments. Shay was slaying mostly every day during NYFW. She had so many looks to keep track of, but she looked like she had a lot of fun.

She was at one of the first shows of the week, the Cinq A Sept presentation. She was styled in black from head to toe by Marie-Lou Bartoli. She wore a black, off the shoulder Cinq A Sept dress with some Saint Laurent heels and a black Hermes bag.

Stylist: Mimi Cuttrell. Hair: Laura Polko Makeup: Patrick Ta assisted by Jen Tioseco.

The same night, she attended Refinery29’s ’29Rooms: Turn It Into Art’ event. She was styled by Mimi Cutrell in a Fausto Puglisi oversized shirt, no pants needed! The slicked back, high ponytail was styled by Laura Polko and makeup was done by Shay’s go to, Patrick Ta (assisted by Jen Tioseco).

Stylist: Unknown. Hair: Laura Polko. Makeup: Patrick Ta.

The next day, the Pretty Little Liars star was spotted front row at the Cushnie Et Ochs show. I wasn’t able to find the exact stylist Shay worked with, but they opted for a Cushnie Et Ochs white jumpsuit very similar to the “Valerie” jumpsuit seen in the Fall 2017 collection.

Stylist: Marie-Lou Bartoli. Hair: Unknown. Makeup: Ariel Tejada.

She then made her way to Harper’s Bazaar “Icons” event with an opposite colored look styled by Marie-Lou Bartoli. She wore a vintage (Pre-Fall 2013) Versace gown with a hint of gold. She had her make up done for the night by Ariel Tejada and had some sultry, smokey eyes.

Stylist: Marie-Lou Bartoli. Hair: Andrew Fitzsimons. Makeup: Patrick Ta assisted by Jen Tioseco

Just like Jamie Chung, Shay was seen front row at the  Jonathan Simkhai show. Styled by Marie-Lou Bartoli yet again, I had some Ariana Grande vibes from this look. She was seen rocking a Jonathan Simkhai white fur sweater from the Fall 2017 collection and a lace bodysuit from Pre-Fall 2017 collection under a pair of jeans. The combat boots and Shay’s bun done by Andrew Fitzsimons, completed the whole look.

Two days later, Shay was seen front row at the Anna Sui presentation. She looked like she stepped out of the 1970’s! She wore a gold two piece outfit (foiled diamonds wrap top & foiled diamond pants) from the Fall 2017 collection by Anna Sui. Completing the 70s look, Andrew Fitzsimons gave Shay some “big hair” with some curly locks.

Stylist: Marie-Lou Bartoli. Hair: Andrew Fitzsimons. Makeup: Patrick Ta

Shay ended her NYFW stint at the Naeem Khan presentation on September 12. It was definitely a contrast from her look at the Anna Sui show. She wore a Caviar Beaded Dress With Long Sleeves from the Fall 2017 collection of Naeem Khan. Instead of pairing it with some heels, she opted with some Louis Vuitton boots. The slick long hair was also perfect!

Favorite Look: Naeem Khan
Where can we see Shay Mitchell next: Shay is in New York filming “You” an upcoming Lifetime show alongside lonely boy, Penn Badgley.

Vanessa Hudgens

Vanessa took a little time off of being a judge on So You Think You Can Dance? and attended a few events at NYFW. I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again: Vanessa always rocks whatever she wears. She exudes confidence and that’s what I love about her.

Stylist: Natalie Saidi (correct me if i’m wrong!). Hair: Andrew Fitzsimons. Makeup: ?

Like Shay Mitchell and Jamie Chung, Vanessa was seen at the Harper’s Bazaar “Icons” event. She was joined by long time beau, Austin Butler, and they looked amazing together. She wore a black gown by Jeremy Scott with some butterfly prints similar to what can be seen in his Fall 2017 Collection.

A few days later she was sitting front row at the Jeremy Scott presentation alongside Spring Breakers co-star Ashley Benson and bf Austin Butler. She wore a black cut out dress and an orange colored bomber jacket, which I believe is by Jeremy Scott, but I’m unable to find it! If anyone knows where this jacket is from, please let me know. Chad Wood also hooked her up with some gorgeous hair extensions.

Favorite Look: Jeremy Scott

OOTD: M-F Basics

I’m basic AF. Just kidding, but I guess you should be the judge of that. Lately I’ve found a pattern in my every day clothes. I realized that I have the same shirt in 5 different colors, which makes dressing up each week pretty easy. I could sleep in with this routine I have going on!


Jeans are becoming a staple in my everyday outfit, when it used to be leggings. I still throw in the leggings, but my go to are a pair of skinny jeans. I literally only had two pairs of “good” jeans aka not ripped at the thighs, but all of a sudden I ended up with at least four more pairs over the last few months. So now, I’ll go through my jeans first, then my basic leggings (black, navy, wine, purple), then do laundry and repeat. There are some tops that I think look way better with leggings and obviously there are tops I have that don’t go with leggings and are a little too short to cover my behind. It’s all about mixing and matching!

Today’s post is dedicated to my recent finds and going back to basics. As mentioned earlier, I have five colors of the same crew shirt. This find comes from Target and is by Mossimo Supply Co.

Normally, I don’t like to buy plain shirts, but for some reason the striped shirt called out to me first. It was on sale for $5 and then I got the white one (twice) and each time I went to Target, I found myself buying the rest. Each time they were on sale for $5. They also have other styles like v-necks, but I really like the crew shirt with the pocket. It’s soft and comfortable. I can tuck it in or I can let it fly and it’s a nice fit either way. The only thing I dislike is how it easily wrinkles, but thats what irons are for, right?

I believe the regular price is $8.50, but they go on sale like every other week. A few of the colors are currently on clearance at the Target I frequently go to, and some new colors have emerged. $5 is such a good steal!


Then comes the jeans. I always buy Forever 21’s plus size skinny short jeans. They last pretty long and are affordable. They are usually about $12. The dark wash doesn’t usually stain and that’s a plus.

At Target, however, I’ve bought jeans in the past year under $10. They’ve all been on clearance. Denim doesn’t change much, but they do have to make room for the new washes and distressed jeans. Mossimo has been making me happy lately, but I’ve also gotten the Levi Strauss Modern Skinny pair of jeans as well. And of course jeggings from the Walmart are thrown in as well. They’re a little on the tight side, but they are under $10 as well. And that’s what matters to me!


As you can tell, Forever 21 is a fave of mine, but Target also provides with really cute clothes that fit me.

Does anyone else really love the crew shirts at Target that are out now?

xoxo,

Adele

Looks I Love: 2017 Teen Choice Awards

When it comes to the Teen Choice Awards, the red carpet is pretty casual. Gowns and suits are not needed. But like any red carpet, confidence and style is a must.

To be honest, this year the only nominations I knew about or cared for were for PLL and Fifth Harmony. But of course the (blue) red carpet looks peaked my interest. [Photos courtesy of Zimbio]

First let’s start off with the actual teens that caught my eye. What is a Teen Choice Award show without their target audience. I mean, let’s be honest. Most of the actors and actresses we see in our favorite teen shows are way over their 20s. Very rarely will we see an actual teen play high school student. But that’s where these 3 come in to play.

Millie Bobby Brown is the breakout star of the Netflix hit show,  Stranger Things. She made her big red carpet debut last year during Emmy’s week. I remember saying that she is going to be a fashion icon of her generation, and that definitely still holds true. The 13-year-old Choice Breakout TV star nominee, chose to walk the blue carpet with a yellow Kenzo dress and some cute yellow and orange block heels. She paired the look with some round sunglasses that screamed she was chill AF.

Maddie Ziegler is best known for being on Dance Moms and the girl from the Sia music videos. The 14-year-old has grown before our eyes and has been the teens’ Choice Dancer for 2 years! Yes, she won again this year. On the red carpet, she went with a black two piece Zac Posen Resort outfit with some floral detail. There was no need for a clutch because she had pockets. Pockets are life. She rocked the red carpet with her BFF Millie Bobby Brown and it’s great seeing these young girls support eachother. She’s going to be a fashion icon as well!

Jade Chynoweth will soon be seen on the YouTube Red series Step Up: High Water. If you aren’t really aware of the dance community, she’s pretty popular and can be seen killing so much choreography. YouTube her. She’s fierce AF. I mean, did you not see her performance alongside co-star Kendra Oyesanya at the awards tonight? The 18-year-old opted for a white crop top and some navy striped palazzo pants.

Next comes the Freeform starlets. In my opinion, the PLL cast was pretty much the most stylish cast on TV. With Pretty Little Liars ending, I’ve been looking for some new fashion icons from the network. And think I’ve found them.

Niki Koss is fairly new to the young hollywood game. Famous in Love is her first TV series and she definitely stood out. If you’ve seen one particular photo shoot she’s done, she has this uncanny resemblance to Audrey Hepburn.  Her whole aura screams fashion icon in the making. She chose to go with a yellow, floral, off the shoulder mermaid style dress by Pretty Little Thing. Looking at the pictures, she definitely looked comfortable on the red carpet. And those eyebrows are always on point.

Katie Stevens definitely represented The Bold Type tonight. She oozed confidence. Obviously, she’s not a newcomer to the Teen Choice blue carpet because we’ve seen her rock some great dresses when she was Faking It on MTV. But tonight she went with the power pose in a green power pant suit by Styland. She boldly wore a low cut blazer opting to go bare underneath. Her slicked hair and black heels finished out the look.  Jane Sloan would be proud.

Let’s move on to the two experts at the red carpet who happen to be former Disney stars!

Zendaya IS a fashion icon of her generation. People are always looking forward to see what she wears on the red carpet and in real life. She has such a huge influence, she was nominated for six awards tonight, including Style Icon. Although she didn’t win the Style Icon award, she won the red carpet with her outfit. She wore a striped pajama like set by Ashish. She looked comfortable and casual and made the look work.

Vanessa Hudgens has been rocking the Teen Choice Red Carpet since 2005. At that time, we all knew her for her role as Gabriella in High School Musical. Fashion has evolved since then and so has her style. She looked sophisticated in a Reem Acra outfit as she accepted a special award. Vanessa was presented with the #SeeHer award for “pushing boundaries on changing stereotypes and embodying the fight for realistic female portrayals in media.” She has definitely used her voice to inspire a lot of young women to be themselves!

I’d like to acknowledge the PLL fam that represented tonight. Honestly, I’m pretty bummed that Pretty Little Liars lost Choice TV Drama. They gave us 7 great years. Oh well, they are still winners in my eyes.

Lucy Hale took a break from filming her new show Life Sentence to attend tonight. She showed up in a red and gold Fausto Puglisi dress with some floral detail. As she pointed out when accepting the award for Choice TV Drama Actress, this years Teen Choice Awards was practically her last PLL event. I’m definitely going to miss seeing the PLL girls together, but I will be paying attention to what they’ll be wearing on future red carpets. And of course I’ll be supporting their future projects.

Janel Parrish had my favorite look of the night. She was a vision in white from head to toe. The Hamel dress included a ruched skirt and she showed off how toned her body is! Now while she looked like an angel, she went home with the Choice Villain award for her role as Mona Vanderwaal. I feel like some people underestimate her since she’s not part of the core 5, but she is definitely a force to be reckoned with. Also, her hair is flawless.

Finally, I want to shoutout to Fifth Harmony for winning their awards and slaying the red carpet with their outfits! I’m so used to seeing them coordinate their outfits, but each of them have their own personal style and showcased that tonight.

What were your favorite looks this year?

OOTD 8.4.17

Fashion hasn’t always been my forté. Looking back, I thought I dressed pretty cutely as an elementary student, with cute little dresses and character sets. But I guess that was my mom’s doing because once I hit middle school, apparently I had to choose things on my own.

I cringe just thinking about what I wore during middle school. Everyday consisted of flared jeans and a hoodie. I was that girl you see in those teen movies with my hair up in a ponytail and glasses. Those movies portraying that girl as the “ugly” girl, like She’s All That & then came Not Another Teen Movie that pointed it out to me. But I digress. I’m pretty sure I wore the same hoodie every day or at least alternated between 3 of them.

High school and some of college sort of became the same. Except the jeans were skinnies, the hoodies came off, & I let my hair down.

The past few years, I’ve become very conscious about the fashion I choose now. I mean, red carpet season IS my favorite season. I’m not trying to say I’m a fashion guru now, but I try to keep up with the times and I admire those that put a lot of effort into their outfits (OOTDs). Also, I definitely feel like I’ve gone out of my comfort zone and wear things with more confidence. Remember it’s not what you wear, it’s how you wear it!

Anyways, today I really liked my outfit! Is that vain? Probably. While it may be a basic outfit, it was still something I felt comfortable and confident in. And it was all affordable.


First I started with my go to fashion staples.

Black leggings from Forever 21 (Plus size) $5.90 

They are comfortable and affordable. Solid colors are a must for me since because I don’t really like printed leggings. So I have like 5 different colors of leggings from F21. But I have like 5 pairs of black leggings. Yes, I’m basic.

Blue cami from Forever 21 (Plus size) $3.90

Another basic staple. Again, I like solid colors. Sue me. I tucked it in and pulled my leggings up high to give that high waisted look. I don’t really like to wear camis by themselves. I got issues.  So when I saw the next item, I fell in love with it as something to coverup.

Long floral kimono by Living Doll Los Angeles $5.99

I took my mom shopping in National City. She loves this reseller store and honestly, I don’t. So while I was waiting for her to finish, I was browsing the plus size section, I saw this hanging all by it’s lonesome and it called out to me. It even had it’s sample tag still on, so could this possibly one of it’s kind? Probably not, but hey, it’s cool to think about.

I then paired the outfit with some nude ballet flats from Target (Merona $16.99). If it were fall, I probably would have gone with booties.

To add some accessories, I went with my clear heart necklace and some Privé Reveaux sunnies. P.S. I should have changed the band on my Fitbit Alta.

What are your fashion staples?

Looks I Love: Oscars 2017

Red carpet season has officially come to an end and the stars of the season made sure they all looked good at Hollywood’s biggest award show, the Academy Awards. I started out with 15 looks that I love, but then I narrowed it down to 13. I probably should’ve narrowed it down more, but I practically loved everything I saw!

Photos Courtesy of Zimbio.

5 under 25

Olivia Culpo (24) – The former Miss USA stunned in a grey gown, custom made by Marchesa. Not only did she look good with the fringe, but she did some good with that dress, partnering with Stella Artois and Water.org.

Karlie Kloss (24) – I’m still wondering what Karlie Kloss was doing at the Academy Awards, but either way, she rocked it. We all know she’s used to the runway, so she made walking the red carpet look like a walk in the park. She looked fierce in the all white ensemble by Tom Ford. The cape, the jewelry, the hair…it was everything. Also, Karlie was one of the many celebrities wearing a blue ribbon showing their support for the ACLU.

Sofia Carson (23) – Sofia is known for playing the daughter of the evil queen from Snow White, but tonight she looked like an absolute princess. She chose to walk her first Oscar’s red carpet with a Monique L’huillier gown. The gold detail on the dress matched perfectly with the gold hairpiece. The sweetheart neckline was perfect for her as well!

Hailee Steinfeld (20) – Hailee looked gorgeous. I absolutely had no words when I first saw her rocking that Ralph and Russo dress. I’m glad she had her hair up, because she showed off the beautiful halter style neckline. The floral detail from head to toe made the dress look so beautiful and elegant.

Auli’i Cravalho (16) – She made her debut at the Oscars in a white gown by Rubin Singe. This dress also had some gold detail that made it look like shells on the beach, fitting for the “Moana” star.  I’m sure it’s not an easy task to walk the red carpet for the first time among so many veteran actors and actresses, but she did amazing. Her look was simple, yet perfect for her.

Red Carpet #RelationshipGoals

chrissyteigen89thannualacademyawardsi1ipzk-bog6x

Chrissy Teigen & John Legend – These two are known to be #RelationshipGoals. Chrissy chose to go with a white dress by Zuhair Murad. It was a bit conservative with long sleeves, but the high slit gave it the sexy look. The silver details and the belt were perfect for the dress and accentuated the right places! John definitely complimented her in his Gucci  tuxedo.

Jessica Biel & Justin Timberlake – I’m not used to seeing these two together on the red carpet, but in their rare appearance together, they looked perfect. Jessica chose to go gold in Kaufman Franco. She shined, while Justin looked so dapper in Tom Ford.

Very Velvet 

Brie Larson – Last year, Brie stunned and won in a blue Gucci dress. This year she continued to win the red carpet in a black velevt Oscar de la Renta piece. The mermaid style dress paired with the neckline is absolutely stunning. This dress is probably in my top 5.

Taraji P. Henson – Taraji always looks good on the red carpet and she always looks fierce in whatever she decides to wear. Today, she graced the Oscars red carpet in an Alberta Ferreti gown. I believe the color is a deep violet, which looks great on her skin tone. It was a simple and classic look yet super sexy with the low cut and high leg slit.

Best Supporting Actresses

Alicia Vikander – Last year, Alicia stole our hearts in a yellow Louis Vuitton gown as she accepted her Oscar for the Best Supporting Actress. This year she decided to tone down the color with a simple black dress by the same designer, Louis Vuitton. The layers, the ruffles, the lace, the necklace – it looked perfect for Alicia’s petite figure.

Viola Davis – Viola walked the red carpet and accepted her Oscar in a red (or maybe blood orange) Armani Prive gown.The off-the-shoulder gown looked so elegant and classic. I noticed most of the actresses walking the red carpet wore some neutral colors, so I’m glad that Viola confidently chose to go with a brighter color. I’m always looking forward to her acceptance speeches and she delivered hers looking as beautiful as ever.

The Emmas

Emma Roberts – I caught the red carpet coverage pretty late and Emma Roberts was pretty much the first person I saw. And let me tell you, she looked so stunning. I know it’s a somewhat simple look, but the two tone (black and white) Armani Prive dress looked so perfect on her. She looked like she stepped out of an old classic Hollywood film, especially with her hair and makeup. I must also note that she worked with Red Carpet Green Dress again, wearing a sustainable dress! I think it’s safe to say she was my favorite look of the night.

Emma Stone – I will always love Emma Stone. She may be this Hollywood A-lister, but she just seems to down to earth and is definitely a loveable dork. But enough of me acting like a fangirl. She yet again looked like a classic Hollywood actress in this gold Givenchy number. This dress looked like it was inspired by 1920s flappers, with the tiered fringe. She pulled it off and wore it confidently!

Looks I Love: 2017 GRAMMYS

Hello all! It’s been a while, but I’m feeling inspired 🙂

The Grammys always brings out some interesting red carpet choices, and tonight was not an exception. Quickly scanning through the red carpet photos, I saw a few questionable looks, but the majority of the artists looked pretty good. Here are some of the looks I loved:

Camila Cabello. Camila chose to walk the red carpet in a silver Judith Leiber gown with some floral detail. She looked like a princess! This was Camila’s first red carpet as a solo artist and I feel like this was a different look than what we’ve seen in her past red carpet looks alongside her former band mates. While a part of me is still a little sad about her leaving Fifth Harmony, she held her own and did it gracefully.

camilacabello59thgrammyawardsarrivalsdu8cqwdshlmx

 Laverne Cox. There was so much leather – or maybe so little. Either way, Laverne rocked that Bryan Hearns custom made dress. The chain detail along the sides held everything together and showed us that Laverne will always be fierce AF. Does she ever do wrong on the red carpet?

lavernecox59thgrammyawardsarrivalsjima224jkf_x

Jennifer Lopez. I think people will be talking about tonight’s Ralph & Russo Couture dress! Maybe not as much as that green Versace dress from 17 years ago, but she’ll definitely make some fashion headlines. J. Lo chose to go with a lilac colored, low cut, thigh-high slit and continues to make me wonder how she is in her late 40s. I could’ve done without the neckpiece, but it’s J. Lo and it’s okay.

jenniferlopez59thgrammyawardsredcarpet4r8zvqpdm0vx

Brendon Urie. Come on, it’s Brendon. I’m in love with Brendon’s voice and I absolutely adore his Grammy look. That is all.

And last but not least…

demilovato59thgrammyawardsarrivalscqgw-evowusx

Demi Lovato – I’ve saved for the best for last (yes, i’m playing favorites). For those who were not aware, this year was the first time Demi was nominated for a Grammy. As a self-proclaimed “Lovatic”, I couldn’t have been more proud! Demi walked the red carpet CONFIDENTLY in a Julien MacDonald dress. The gold detail made her shine bright like the star that she is. Was that too much? She had the fiercest look on her face and even though she didn’t take home the award, she still looked gorgeous and did a damn well job performing.

What were your favorite looks of the night?

Best Dressed: 2016 Emmy Awards

It’s that time of the year again – one of the biggest nights in television, the Emmy Awards. As you may know, my favorite thing about award shows is the red carpet and seeing what my favorite actors and actresses in television look like all glammed up.

LET’S START WITH MY TOP 5 (in no particular order):

emiliaclarke68thannualprimetimeemmyawardswncnm18ax6cl

Emilia Clarke –  I’m pretty biased here because Emilia will ALWAYS be part of my “best dressed on the red carpet” lists. It’s the way she carries herself on the red carpet. The “Outstanding Supporting Actress” nominee went for a blush colored strapless dress by Atelier Versace. With her hair up in a bun, she accentuated her neckline and kept it minimum with jewelry. She’s so poised and elegant every time, even if she’s one of the biggest dorks in the world (I say that out of love).

Kristen Bell – Yes, she’s back on our television screens! As I sit here contemplating  why Veronica Mars was never nominated for an Emmy, Kristen Bell in her Zuhair Murad dress is definitely a good distraction. The dress entailed a floral design perfect for the end of summer & beginning of fall! She rocked the low plunging neckline, but my absolute favorite part of the dress was the billowing skirt!

Tori Kelly – I know fans of the YouTube start will agree that Tori has come so far! You may know her for her music, but she stepped on the red carpet looking like a classic Hollywood actress.Along with her soft curls, she wore a black mermaid-style gown by Paule KaThere wasn’t much detail on the dress, but she accessorized well with a silver clutch and jewelry (Norman Silverman Diamonds).

Laverne Cox – She keeps making my best dressed lists! Her maroon dress she wore at this year’s SAG Awards is still my favorite look of hers, but this gold number by Naeem Kahn comes very close. The dress hugs her figure perfectly. She said she was excited of the possibility she may see Beyonce, but I definitely think she slayed the red carpet just like Beyonce would.

Sophie Turner – I still stand by my statement that she is a fashion icon of her generation. Out of this year’s award show red carpets, I noticed she likes to keep it neutral. Just like at the 2016 SAG Awards, she opted for a black dress but this time by Valentino. The spiked gold necklace accompanying this lacy dress gave it more edge ! Does anyone else think her look emulated Jennifer Lawrence? Maybe it’s the blonde hair, but either way, she rocked it!

HONORABLE MENTIONS:

Kerry Washington – The Scandal star may be pregnant, but she did not let that stop her from walking (read WORKING) the red carpet. She looked fierce in a black Brandon Maxwell dress cut at the sides, accenting her baby bump.

Olivia Culpo – Why was former Miss USA Olivia Culpo at the Emmys? I’ll never know, but she looked beautiful AND fierce in this Zac Posen dress.

Priyanka Chopra – I love red and this dress by Jason Wu was the best looking red dress on the red carpet.

Sarah Paulson – Honestly, I was having J. Lo flashbacks with this embelisshed, emerald green gown.But this Prada gown was far from it and Sarah pulled it off!

Millie Bobby Brown – I haven’t seen Stranger Things, but I do know that this 12-year old in Valentino is capturing the hearts of many. So I’m calling it right now: this girl is going to be rocking many red carpets in the future and will most likely be a style icon.

BEST DRESSED MEN:

Yeah, the men have it easy, but not all of them can rock a good suit. Here’s a few that looked very dapper tonight.

From L to R: Tom Cullen, Rami Malek, Trevor Jackson

and of course my Game of Thrones babes Kit Harington & Pedro Pascal.

And that concludes my best dressed of the 2016 Emmys (photos courtesy of Zimbio)! Who made your list?

Adele
