The celebrities did not disappoint on the red carpet at the Academy Awards and the same is true for the Vanity Fair After Party.
I love this gold, metallic Dundas dress worn by Vanessa Hudgens. It's fitted and draped beautifully with the unexpected cutout at the torso. I love the flower at the neckline creating balance with the high slit of the skirt.
This black and blue Zuhair Murad dress worn by Jennifer Lopez is so fantastic. The fabric is colored and pleated to mimic feathers, perfectly accentuating Ms. Lopez's curvaceous figure.
You all know I'm a sucker for feathers so I adore this Oscar de la Renta dress worn by Lupita Nyong'o. I love the airy quality of the ostrich feathers, adding to the fun and lightness of the garment. The black belt synches Ms. Nyong'o in so she's not drowning in feathers, too.
My favorite look happens to go to one of my favorite actresses as well. I'm so happy to see Caitriona Balfe top my list in this gorgeous Dundas dress. I love the unexpected heart-shape cutouts in the midriff of this metallic gown, as well as the shoulder pads changing the silhouette. I also love these Ana Khouri earrings which are so chic and so unique. Fantastic look overall!
Hello, everyone! and Hello 2019!!!
I am back to blogging and I am oh so happy to share my thoughts on the fashion at last weekend's Golden Globes! There were SOOO many fabulous garments to pick from that it's taken me a week to narrow down my favorites! So let's not delay any longer and get to it!
You can't go wrong with a big puffy, tulle skirt at an awards show! They are often a safe choice so they can become a dime a dozen, but that is not the case with this Monique Lhuillier gown worn by Heidi Klum! I love the unexpected sheer-looking bodice and the flowers adorning the skirt! It's a very fresh look for the red carpet!
Judith Light's Christian Siriano gown was part angel, part Greecian goddess! That fabric is gorgeous and drapes beautifully! I love the layered pearls as accessory, too!
Sandra Oh made history at the 2019 Golden Globes as the first Asian host and of course as hostess she had multiple costume changes, but this Versace look is my favorite! While the skirt has a similar silhouette to Judith Light's gown, it stands out thanks to the draping detail across the torso, the asymetrical neckline, and the big bow at the shoulder. I love that her hair is up to show off the top of this gorgeous gown.
I love this 4 piece custom couture ensemble worn by Billy Porter! It's so refreshing to see a new take on a typical men's suit. Randi Rahm and his team took 6 months to complete this look! The embroidery and embellishment detail is delicious and I love the unexpected hot pink lining! Gorgeous work!!!
When I first saw this next look I was admittedly not a fan. However, it's grown on me and frankly I love it! Caitriona Balfe absolutely rocked this unusual Moschino dress! Not everyone could pull off this silhouette, but Caitriona's statuesque physique wears it beautifully.
I love this Alexander McQueen dress worn by Emily Blunt! It's a great ratio of elegant and sexy. I'm not usually a fan of crochet lace as it often looks like a doily on your grandmother's couch, but the thread and lace detailing used were a fantastic choice. And the peak-a-boo look through the lace isn't scandalous with a nude color bodice and grey skirt. The asymetrical hem has a wonderful organized chaos to it, too. Overall a wonderful choice!
Of course Gemma Chan is like a clothes hanger - everything looks good on her! This deep blue Valentino gown was one of my favorites tho. It's basically a sleeveless romper with an oversize skirt including a long train. I love that because a) it was no doubt comfortable and b) it's completely unexpected!
And last, but definitely not least - my absolute favorite look - Danai Gurira in a custom Rodarte gown! This dress design was inspired by Zimbabwe's national flower, the flame lily. The simple silhouette of the dress is the perfect choice to not over power the texture of the fabric. Red can be a difficult color choice for the red carpet, but pairing it with orange makes this dress pop! Her updo was a perfect styling choice to show off the asymmetrical neckline and bow, too! Bravo!!
