Looks I Love: 2017 GRAMMYS

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

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.

 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?

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.

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…

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). .¬†

kristenbell68thannualprimetimeemmyawardsmyr8yhbf1lxl

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!

torikelly68thannualprimetimeemmyawardsmr0olkhq63nl

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 Ka.¬†There wasn’t much detail on the dress, but she accessorized well with a silver clutch and jewelry (Norman Silverman Diamonds).

lavernecox68thannualprimetimeemmyawardsrbryi49nu27l

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.

sophieturner68thannualprimetimeemmyawards8npeielcio2l

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?

Best Dressed: 2016 SAG Awards Edition

The 2016 red carpet season continued with last night’s SAG Awards and for the most part, a lot of the looks were very simple and somewhat casual compared to the Golden Globes or the upcoming Oscars. Either way, our favorite actors and actresses still rocked the red carpet with confidence and style. Make sure you read to the end to see my FAVORITE looks of them all. (All photos from Zimbio)

25 & UNDER CLUB – These stars, all 25 years of age and under, kept it fresh and fun with their looks. When they grow up and bloom more as actresses, I don’t doubt that they’ll still be setting the trends for their generation and continue to be fashion icons.

Kiernan Shipka (16) seemed to have the most fun on the red carpet! While the photo I chose might make you question that statement, most of the other photos were of her laughing and smiling huge. The Mad Men star chose to wear a floral Erdem dress and kept it simple with minimal jewelry (Dana Rebecca Designs earrings and Irene Neuwirth rings).

Maisie Williams (18) kept it cool in a blue Ermanno Scervino dress. While the others decided to go with floor length gowns, she decided to show off her Nicholas Kirkwood heels. I always love to see Maisie dress up for these things, just because it’s so different from Arya Stark on Game of Thrones.

25 & Under SAGSaoirse Ronan (21) kept it quite conservative with a long sleeve Michael Kors dress, but she looked so elegant. To me, the pale pink color and floral pattern made it such a beautiful dress. It was very fitting for Saoirse and I’m glad she decided to pull her hair back into a bun to show off those Forevermark Diamonds

Sophie Turner (19)¬†gave me some¬†Game of Thrones/Sansa Stark feels with her black¬†Carolina Herrera gown. She came out looking fierce, fabulous, and confident just like when Sansa stark decided she wasn’t going to take any more bull from anyone at the end of Season 4. She also kept it minimal with the jewelry and showed off her Jimmy Choo clutch as an accessory

Sarah Hyland (25) stunned in a navy J. Mendel gown. This was Sarah’s sixth year in a row at the SAG awards so we all know she’s not a newbie when it comes to red carpet season. I loved the little detail in the front of her dress and the fact that she confidently rocked that leg slit.¬† And of course, just like the first time we saw her back in 2010, she kept it fun and always had a smile on her face. P.S. The Lorraine Schwartz and Ofira jewelry = ::heart eyes::

THE VETERANS: These actresses have been in showbiz for 15+ years so they know a thing or two about rocking the red carpet.

Rachel McAdams stunned in a black and nude Elie Saab gown. The floral pattern and sparkling embellishments had her shining on the red carpet. But her dress wasn’t the only thing shining, did you see the diamonds (Harry Kotlar diamond earrings and rings, and a Le Vian diamond ring) she was rocking? I’m trying to imagine the dress without the mesh top, but either way she makes that neckline work!

Kate Winslet kept it classy in a green Armani gown. Normally, I’m not a fan of the color green when it comes to clothing, but this is an exception. She joked in an interview that she didn’t even look in the mirror before hitting the red carpet, but here she is keeping it classy. This dress was so perfect for her body. I also loved the natural make up and classic hairdo. The look is so simple, but so beautiful and fitting.

VeteransSAG2016Viola Davis didn’t just win a SAG Award for Outstanding Actress in a Drama Series (for the 2nd time in a row). She definitely won on the red carpet with this lavender Zac Posen dress. It complimented her body so well especially that off the shoulder neckline! The make up matched perfectly and so did the jewelry.

Marisa Tomei was another stunner in green! This low-cut Zuhair Murad dress sparkled with sequins. The pairing with the white belt was perfect and the long sleeves gave it such an elegant feel.

LITCHFIELD REPRESENTING!: OITNB won Outstanding Ensemble in a Comedy Series again and some of them won on the red carpet as well!OINTBSAG2016Samira Wiley was a vision in this white Christian Siriano dress! I guess she was inspired by some of this years Golden Globes looks. It was another simple look on the red carpet, but it still stood out among the rest and she made sure that she added a pop of color with her jewelry.

Laverne Cox is always rocking the red carpet and this is probably my favorite look of hers so far. This cascading maroon dress is part of Prabal Gurung‘s collection. The little peek-a-boo slit at the waist and the leg slit was perfect and made her look like a fierce goddess!

PRETTY IN PINK: Grease Live just aired and these ladies seemed to be inspired by the Pink Ladies and made sure to add some brightness to the red carpet.

PrettyInPinkSAG2016Diane Guerrero rocked a mermaid style gown by Christian Siriano and it did not disappoint. She decided to keep the trend and step away from a necklace to bring attention to the sweetheart neckline of her dress.

Emilia Clarke kept it sleek and sultry in a low cut Dior Haute Couture. It was definitely a different direction from her black Golden Globes dress. While that dress screamed “Khaleesi”, this dress screamed “fun and flirty Khaleesi”. And I absolutely loved that she paired it with some matching Dior jewelry.

Sofia Vergara, just like her¬†Modern Family co-star Sarah Hyland, is used to walking the red carpet and she always makes heads turn. Personally, I’m not usually blown away by her red carpet looks but I’m actually a fan of this Vera Wang number on her.

COMEDIAN BFFs: At the Golden Globes, Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer stole the show, but they aren’t the only comedian BFFs in Hollywood!

Tina Fey¬†was a lady in red and I’m a sucker for red dresses because if you didn’t know by now, my favorite color is red. But enough about me. This halter gown was designed by Prabal Gurung. Fey paired it off with some beautiful Mouawad¬†earrings and Vivier clutch.ComedyBFFsSAG2016

Kristen Wiig kept it simple and decided to opt out of a dress and went for a Roland Mouret jumpsuit. And you know what? It works for the SAG Awards because its one of the award shows that are more relaxed and

My Absolute Favorites of the Night:  Now onto the dresses the took my breath away and had me react the most.

BestDressedSAG2016 Laura Prepon stunned me in this white Carmen Marc Valvo Couture dress. I’m going to be honest, I’m not usually a fan of her red carpet looks, but this look made me bust out my real life heart eyes emojis. The color against her skin tone and the contrast with her dark cascading waves, she looked like such a classic Hollywood beauty.

Alicia Vikander geometric patterned Louis Vuitton dress is one you can’t forget. Out of the three of these actresses, her dress was my favorite.¬†At the Globes, she decided to go with a simple white dress, but the SAG choice was sequins galore with metallic colors. It was a pretty bold choice for the SAG Awards. I like her with this type of neckline and if this was her choice for this show, I wonder how she’s going to step it up at the Oscars. No pressure, Alicia. No pressure at all.

Brie Larson’s in this Atelier Versace gown gave me mixed emotions, but after much thought, I realized I actually liked [most of] it. First off, there’s no doubt that I loved the pastel blue color on her. I liked that she toned it down a bit from that gold number at the Globes (which was one of my favorites anyways). It kind of reminded me of a toga which gave her this Greek Goddess look.¬† Oh and the fact that she paired the dress with some Tiffany and co. Jewelry is perfect.The only thing that I can’t get on board with is the rope detail at the hip and upper abdomen, but I do think it looks nice at the shoulder.

And those were my best dressed ladies of the night, but I can’t forget about the handsome men that stepped out. Here are a few of the actors that stood out to me:

BlueShadesSAG2016Keegan-Michael Key, Idris Elba, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Anthony Mackie & Iwan Rheon opted for shades of blue which seems to be a big trend for the men of the red carpet.

Tom Cullen, bae Pedro Pascal, the adorable Jacob Tremblay, bae Kit Harington, & Rami Malek decided to keep it classic in fitted black tuxedos and they did not disappoint me one bit.

Best Dressed at the 2016 Golden Globes

It’s my favorite season of the year — red carpet season! And what better way to start off the year than with the 73rd Annual Golden Globes?

As I watched the live red carpet and waited for the photos to come in, I started an excel sheet with a list of my favorite dresses. I’m still sitting here wondering how I’m going to narrow it down to a few dresses, but I’m sure I’ll get through it somehow.

Along the 2016 Golden Globes red carpet, I saw a lot of white, red, and gold gowns as well as sequins and capes and most of them did not disappoint!

GAME CHANGERS:

After last year in her simple yet stunning black Badgley Mishka gown, Gina Rodriguez kept it dark with a navy, off the shoulder dress by Zac Posen. She walked the red carpet confidently and that is what I love about her. The Neil Lane jewelry complimented the look and just like Gina, I’d want to keep it too. Also, I admire the fact that this dress has pockets.

Zendaya is the fashion icon of her generation and I know she will continue to set the standards. She wants to change the game and I don’t doubt that she will. She wore a burgundy Marchesa dress and to me she would be the only one that could pull it off!

STAY GOLD:

Best Actress Brie Larsen was golden at the Globes! When I first saw her walk the red carpet, I thought she looked stunning and immediately knew that she would be one of my top picks. This gown was custom made by Calvin Klein and she rocked it! Brie wasn’t the only one to go gold. Eva Green also decided to go gold with sequins in a lace Ellie Saab gown and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley stunned in a gold Atelier¬†Versace gown.

QUEENS OF WESTEROS:

Game of Thrones star Natalie Dormer decided to go with a red, off the shoulder J. Mendel gown. It was held up by a black neck piece and if you know me black and red is my favorite color combination. However, I almost kind of wish it was a silver/diamond neck piece, but I guess that would’ve been too predictable. Dormer’s GoT co-star Emilia Clarke also stunned with a black Valentino gown and she definitely looked like a Khaleesi with that cape!

FUNNY GIRLS:

Remember when I was talking about Natalie Dormer’s red gown with the black neck piece? Well Jennifer Lawrence was also rocking a red gown, but with a silver neck piece. I may be biased because I absolutely love J. Law. But come on, don’t you agree that she looked amazing in Dior? I love the little peek-a-boo cutouts on the side (I have no knowledge of fashion terms..can you tell? hehe). It’s elegant, yet sexy — very suiting for the Best Actress in a Comedy movie.

J. Law’s newest BFF Amy Schumer looked quite pretty on the red carpet as well. Actually, her black and white Prabal Gurung dress sort of reminded me a lot of Blake Lively’s Gucci dress from the 2014 Cannes Film Festival. I loved that dress, so this dress also stood out to me.

VISIONS IN WHITE:

Lily James is beautiful in a sheer Marchesa gown. She may not have had the iconic Cinderella gown with glass slippers, but she was still an angelic vision in white.

At first I was on the fence with Alicia Vikander‘s Louis Vuitton dress but after a while it grew on me. She looked very poised and elegant. How an actress carries herself on the red carpet definitely contributes to how great a dress looks.

Laverne Cox always kills it on the red carpet. For her first time at the Globes she decided to go with a white Elizabeth Kennedy gown. The only thing that worries me is the train and someone stepping on it. I would cry if I saw a footprint or something.

CLASSIC BEAUTIES:

I will always admire Sophia Bush. She will always be Brooke Davis to me. Sophia was chosen to present an award tonight and she kept it simple & sexy in a low cut Narciso Rodriguez gown.

Lady Gaga, who is also another best actress of the night, looked so glamorous. She looked so poised and elegant, clearly the epitome of classic Hollywood glam in this Atelier Versace gown

Jennifer Lopez was a vision on the red carpet. Normally, I’m not a fan of bright colored dresses, but she rocked this Giambattista Valli gown so hard. It’s J. Lo for goodness sake. She rocks everything. I loved the cape and the diamond accents & accessories.

There will always be something so captivating about Amber Heard. I loved the rose colored sheer gown, but I could do without the floral neckline. Nevertheless, this Gucci gown on her still made her look like a classic beauty.

Joanne Froggatt in this lavender Reem Acra gown was beautiful. It’s simple yet elegant and I really loved this color on her.

DAPPER MEN

Who doesn’t love a man in a tux? A lot of the men went with the classic black tux, but Ryan Gosling decided to go with the white blazer. I can’t find any pics of Grant Gustin on the red carpet, but all I know is that he looks so dreamy in that John Varvatos tux :heart eyes:. And last but not least, we have the cutie Charlie Puth. We don’t normally get to see him in a tux, but he cleans up very well.

If you’ve reached this, I thank you for sticking with me. What were your favorite looks of the 2016 Golden Globes red carpet?
