People’s Choice Awards Fashion

Awards Season has arrived!! (We can count this as a legit awards show right?)  And that means the season’s latest fashion will be splashed across red carpets for the next few months – I personally am so excited, it’s like another holiday for me.

If these ensembles were a glimpse into the future of what is to come, we can expect to see a lot of a)pants/suits for ladies, b)sparkles and c) cutouts.  At the PCA’s there were some decent showings and others were complete disasters.  However, I’m all about the positives so let’s take a look at my choices for the BEST dressed stars!

Sarah Hyland in an embellished number by Christian Siriano – love the monochromatic look created by incorporating the same metallic accessories.

pca2

Portia de Rossi in a Zuhair Murad jumpsuit – loving the deep blue and sexy yet sophisticated pants!

pca3

Allison Janey in a gorgeous Rani Zakhem gown – girlfriend totally wanted a “I’m the host” dress and this was just perfect!

pca4

Olivia Munn in Giambattista Valli sequined striped look.  This may be too casual on any other red carpet, but to me this just fit perfectly and looked so amazing on her!

pca5

Viola Davis in a bright Escada gown.  Maybe it’s because I love pink or because this bright color makes me think of summer while I’m currently freezing in these frigid temps – but i.love.this.dress!

And of course the biggest trend of the night – everyone looked great in BLACK!

Stock Your Closet With These for Spring 2015

Since New York Fashion Week has come to an end it’s time to reflect on all of the new trends that will fill our closets come next season.  While various current trends are carrying over to Spring 2015 such as crop tops and all-white ensembles, there are plenty of new trends to look forward to as well.

1. Culottes – This wide-leg cropped style was all over the runways this season.  The casual style was seen with crop tops or shirts tucked in.  The best part about these versatile bottoms is that you can basically wear them with any type of footwear!  Seen at: Nanette Lepore, Rebecca Taylor and Mara Hoffman.

2. Shirting – This menswear-inspired trend took off last season and is staying strong with crisp shirting appearing in many shows underneath dresses or classicly paired with trousers or skirts. Seen at: Thakoon, Michael Kors and The Row.

3. Cold Shoulder – Many designers are letting skin show this season, giving attention to bare shoulders.  Off-the-shoulder tops were HUGE on the runway and it gives us a break from the constant display of midriff skin! Seen at: Christian Siriano, Tibi and Jenny Packham

Emmys 2014 Fashion

On the night of the infamous television awards, fashion was front and center.  There were dramatic gowns, short films dresses and even some very comedic elements (I’m talking to you, Lena Dunham).  While these ladies all came together from their very different television categories, the fashion trends seemed to remain consistent.  Basically, if you were dressed in anything else besides red/coral/hot pink, a metallic or white – who were you and what were you doing at the Emmys?  Long, clingy silhouettes were popular with a few fuller gowns making appearances.  See the trends below!

My Take On NYFW… So Far Part II

Many trends come and go, leaving us “remembering when” we wore that crazy style last season.  However, some things are better left unchanged.  Fashion designers have unanimously decided that the crop top isn’t broke so they won’t fix it. Yes, it’s here to stay… at least for another season.  While it may make some cringe thinking that we still have to work those abs at the gym for another season, others who have enjoyed the midriff baring style will be happy seeing it on the runway during NYFW this season.  See some of the MANY (okay, almost ALL) crop top variations from designers this upcoming spring.
