Grammy’s 2015 Best Dressed

As I was watching the Grammy’s Red Carpet last night, I was thinking there would be ZERO best dressed choices.  I mean, you’ve got to agree with me – there were so many AWFUL looks that I believe the best dressed stood out even more. Before I get to my best dressed ladies, I have to say I’m LOVING the all-natural makeup look.  For real – Nicki Minaj, Chrissy Teigen, Beyonce and Rihanna (just to name a few stand-outs) looked flawless in their no-makeup makeup look.  Fresh faced and simple hair is going to be a huge trend this year and I’m soooo okay with it – low maintenance = less getting ready time!

Anyways, on to the best ensembles of the night:

Jessie J in Ralph and Russo.  At first, I hated/loathed the whole sheer dress with granny panties showing, but it has definitely grown on me.  Loving this look!

Chrissy Teigen in Gucci.  So sexy, yet also tasteful.  I love the bright white paired with natural mermaid waves.

Meghan Trainor in Galia Lahav.  See Jessie J – you get the jist.

Katy Perry in Zuhair Murad.  Coming from someone who usually goes for shock-factor (and not in a good way), I actually loved this different look for her!  Every detail from her lavender hair to her simple strap heels.

Taylor Swift in Elie Saab.  No other explanation needed. ❤

Beyonce, aka Queen Bey in Proenza Schouler.  Bow down. She truly is.. flawless. (Had to)

 

The jury is still out on…….

Rihanna in Giambattista Valli.  This is SO Giambattista Valli to a T, but somehow, it never translates on the red carpet (remember the disaster that was Lena Dunham at the Emmy’s last year?).  Looking at all the factors, I should love this – my favorite color, big and poufy with some embellishment.  But… just… I don’t know.  The verdict is still out….

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!

Zuhair Murad Fall 2014 Couture

Is there anyone else out there who gets those excitement butterflies, kid-on-Christmas morning feeling when another Fashion Week has arrived?  I get so anxious waiting to see the new lines of clothes and accessories being presented down the runway.

But the Holy Grail of all Fashion Weeks has started and WOW has it left all of us fashionistas weak in the knees.  Couture week is not just about fashion.  This is about a dream world – living the celebrity life and deciding which of these gorgeously crafted gowns will be the winner to wear on the red carpet.  So excuse me for the rest of this pst as I enter my fashion fantasy world and re-live the fairytale that was Zuhair Murad’s Fall 2014 Couture show.

The intricate beading.  The bold colors.  The slim gowns, but ALSO the fuller silhouettes.  EVERYTHING about this collection was astonishingly beautiful and effortlessly sexy.  And I’m super confident that at least ONE of these gowns will be appearing on the red carpet very soon!
