2016 Golden Globes RED CARPET: Best & Worst Dressed

Who cares if the holidays are done, you know. Red Carpet season is here ladies and gents, and kicking off 2016 are the Golden Globes with some fab moments. There’s the winners, YAY to them all, there’s Leonardo DiCaprio’s face when Lady Gaga passed by him (priceless), there’s the-capes-are-taking-over-the-world movement happening (almost every single star was wearing some sort of cape dress. whaaaaaaa?!), there’s the overhyped and incredibly stupid duo JLAw and Amy Schumer. Yes, I did just say that, and half of you will probably click away right now. I just have to speak my mind, and I’ve held it for quite a while on these two, hoping they’d drop the bloody crap. They didn’t. It just gets worse. Hence my shocking confession. Moving on. I’ll take a deep breath now, and you’re more than welcome to just throw that info under the rug,…

2015 OSCARS: Best & Worst Dressed

If the whole red carpet thing had been about nailing best and worst both in one look, a few of the actresses would have been in big trouble, I tell you. Not Marion Cotillard though. She did what I never thought could be done. She wore a dress so incredibly beautiful through its elegance and simplicity that I instantly said, right then and there, the very night of the Oscars 2015, ‘Dayum, she’s my favourite. Amen bitches!’ But then she turned. What in the name of God is that? A bow wrapped beneath her butt? Oh wait a minute, the haute couture diaper look is in. Ohhhh I get it. Tssk, tssk, tssk, shame on you. I mean me. Other than that I’m in a good mood today as I’m going through the photos and striving, YES striving for the last mean slash bitchy bone…

2015 Grammys Red Carpet: Best & Worst Dressed

This little annoying voice in my head keeps telling me: ”Hey missy, ain’t you a little late on this event right here?” To which I reply with my motto these days: bitch please. Ef you. Having to deal with all the drama to which I am naturally prone to, and the pile of errands and meetings to attend these days, has inevitably led to this sad event of me not covering the Grammys sooner. BUT, good things do come to those who wait. I don’t believe that shit, but it does fit the situation. 2015 Grammys were the best event so far, not necessarily due to the red carpet looks (which were actually pretty on point and more on the best dressed rather than not), but mainly because of everything else that happened. KANYE!!!! Just. Go home already. His walking-on-the-stage-joke-shit was just that, pure shit,…

2015 Golden Globes Red Carpet: Best & Worst Dressed

Let’s just say today was a PERFECT day. Just because I could’t wait to play God for yet another year, with the celebrities you know. On the red carpet. I know, who the hell died and made me fucking queen of style, but one can only hope, while being redundant, since every year I bitch about red carpets yet end up covering and actually enjoying them. There’s a bit of power (and ridiculousness) to all us bloggers and mortal writers loving or NOT loving incredibly expensive dresses on incredibly famous people. `Ah well… that’s the game and somebody’s gotta do it. Might as well have a few shots with it you know. Giuliana-style. You go girl. And BTW… with the risk of having the entire planet hate on me right now I will however be a bitch about Clooney’s new wife – Amal. Kudos to…

2014 Oscars Red Carpet. Best & Worst Dressed

The much awaited film slash red carpet fashion event of the year came and went, in what felt like a heartbeat. And it was great. In fact, fashion wise it was one of the best I’ve seen in a long time. As a film geek and a fashion addict I enjoyed it tremendously sans le Oscar snub Dicaprio was yet again faced with. Seriously? Let’s not go there though. Maybe in a next post. Another ‘seriously! wtf?’ moment for me was Jennifer Lawrence fall. Cooooome ooooon now. You can’t tell a good joke twice and hope it has the same laughing effect you know. That’s what I thought of the fall anyway. And the back necklace. It was Oscars 2013 re-run, that may have us like her even more, or not so much. Great timing that Daft Punk was there to give her a hand.…

2014 Grammy Awards RED CARPET. Best & Worst Dresses

Oh, Miley! Where were you? And Rihanna! A red carpet is never fun without these 2. (the above pics are from the pre-Grammy-gala). Having said that, the 2014 Red Carpet at the Grammy Awards was all about glamour and playing it safe. That’s what I thought anyway. Not that anyone cares. Thank God for Beyonce’s performance with hubby Jay-Z. Pure HOTNESS and talent. And for talent meets awkwardness there was Lorde, of course. Okay, let’s focus on what we give a shit about: fashion on the red carpet. Truth is, most of the dresses were great, only a few having landed on the worst dress. As for the looks, there seemed to have been 2 teams: au naturelle versus dark heavy makeup, both styles being exquisite. As for the dresses, most ladies opted for mermaid cuts, sheer, lace and all the glam that comes with it. Less…

2014 Golden Globes: Best & Worst Dresses And Beauty Looks!

Just finished catching up on 2014 Golden Globes and a few things linger in my head as highlights: Elizabeth Moss giving the middle finger on the manicure camera. Finally some fun, right? Beauty looks (read make up & hair) reigning over dresses this year. Tina Fey slams Taylor Swift yet again. Excuse the gloating, just can’t help myself. The cape of Lupita Nyong. The winners. (Leo, with the supermodel joke making it even better. Jennifer Lawrence, though I’ve heard complaints due to her role being so little. She did win for supportive actress, right?) Still don’t like Lena Dunham. There I said it. I have officially self subjected myself to world’s dismay. Debuting the red carpet season, a few trends were making quite the wave: metallics, colored dresses & bare backs. Or intricate backs. Best Red Carpet Dresses & Looks at 2014 Golden Globes.  My faves include:…

AMA’s 2013 Red Carpet! Best & Worst Dresses!

You know how I always bitch about covering red carpets events, and tend to avoid posting about them too often, just cause it always seems to be a case of best & worst (guilty as charged) and been-there-done-that lists, glamour and all that crap. So it all feels futile. And I swore to not do this shit again until the Oscars, but… so much for this promise. After looking at the red carpet photos from 2013 American Music Awards, and watching the performances… I gave in. I’m only human after all. So… I thought I’d share all my faves and not so faves with you, my lovelies. Aside from this year’s fabulous dresses, gotta say… some of the performances were beyond mind blowing. Yes, Miley Cyrus, Rihanna, Katy Perry and Lady Gaga featuring R Kelly, I’m looking at you on this one. These days it’s all…

2013 Emmy Red Carpet. Best & Worst Dressed.

As all red carpets before and those to come, the 2013 Emmys were a celebration and mirror of beauty & fashion, with most ladies looking stunning in their designer gowns, all dolled up, excited, a bit nervous yet relaxed at the same time. After all, it is to us these events bare the wow factor, to them, it’s just another working day with the inherent beauty & style top notch requirements. I don’t know what t is about these red carpets events but they get us hoked on the fashion critique chats every time. And though we love to see those who nailed it (and there were so many this year), ah… I swear the bitch persona sleeping in all of us comes to live when a famous face wears the worst dress ever. Must be the confirmation & satisfaction we get that we’re all…
