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.

Favorite Look: Refinery29’s ’29Rooms: Turn It Into Art’ event
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).

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.

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.

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.

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
Where can we see Vanessa Hudgens next: SYTYCD & climbing mountains on NBC on Running Wild with Bear Grylls! set to air on Sept. 16.

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?

xoxo,

Adele
