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!

Fashion Icon? More Like Fashion GOD

There are so many points that could be covered from last nights CFDA awards, but let’s focus on the major highlight…or shining moment, should I say?

Rihanna, the CFDA Fashion Icon recipient f0r 2014 showed exactly why she deserved the award by absolutely DESTROYING any other competition, by arriving decked out in a custom-made gown of head-to-toe Swarovski crystals by Adam Selman. Accompanying this bedazzled dress was a matching head wrap and gloves and a fur pink stole.  And I mean, just LOOK at those sparklers on her fingers and hanging from her ears.

Rihanna truly did “shine bright like a diamond” (sorry, had to) and was an obvious choice for this highly-fashionably award.   In love with each and every part of this look!  What did you think of her choice of ensemble?

Get a HANDle on the Cold

glove

(Valentino)

Everyone knows we can turn jeans and a t-shirt into a glamourous ensemble with just a few key accessories.  Well, the newest underrated accessory is now making a comeback with some fancy embellishment – the leather glove.  No longer will this cold weather add-on be overlooked, it now has all eyes shooting toward your hands with spikes, studs and lots of sparkle that adds lots of pizzaz to any outfit.  Yes, one little item can change an outfit and this season, it’s all about the hands.

Tis the Season to Shine

When you look around during this time of year, nothing about the holidays are understated.  Everything is lit up, glittering, sparkling and catching your eyes and attention wherever you set your gaze.  Your fashion choices should be no different!  What better excuse than a holiday party, Christmas Eve and New Years Eve, or just because you want to shine along with everything around you, to wear some shimmery, glitzy GOLD!  Adorn yourself with anything gold and you are insta-glam.  The gold trend is the most appropriate look for this time of year (because when else will you look festive and not freakish walking around in your sparkly gold lame dress, black tights and killer heels?  Oh right, never.)  The best part about gold is that you can never over-do it.  Wear that gold mini, stilettos, bangles, oversize necklace- you name it, you can wear it!  Happy Sparkling!

Great Find! Glitter Loafers

 

Loafers are so in for this fall season so I knew that I had to purchase a pair.  However, when I laid my eyes on these sparkling babies I had to get my hands on them.  Needless to say, I’m a sucker for ANYTHING glitter so these obviously already had a place in my closet.  They are Steve Madden (madden girl) and they go with basically everything.  Who else is getting loafers this season?
