Awkward question: is it just me, or were celebs better dressed in the 2018 Oscars after party dresses, than the red carpet ceremony itself? I know, lately I’m the odd one out, strangely alone in my sartorial opinions… but y’all can’t tell me Lupita Nyongo‘s dress for the after party wasn’t better (waaaay better) than for the Oscars red carpet?

Is there a rule to generally picking one dress over the other? Well, obviously not in Emma Stone‘s case, cause she really did 0 efforts on both occasions. (wish I looked as good with 0 efforts though.) But you know what I mean. Do the stars actually have a saying in what they wear, is it all PR, is it a case study? What is it??? Because if you ask me the 2018 oscars after party dresses were as good as any red carpet dresses, so… what’s the memo? Is there a memo?

A lot of the young squad went for short dresses, and kinda looked the best! Might’ve been the freshness of the 20s, or the perfect bodies, or the dresses, or an all around combo – but Kendall Jenner, Hailee Steinfeld, Zoe Kravitz… Perfection!

Other celebs like Emily Ratajkovski, Olivia Munn, or Jenna Dewan (dayumnnnnn) opted for the retro vampire look in deep burgundy dresses, and looked amazing! Sienna Miller, who’s a style queen anyway, and Kate Bosworth – slay!

2018 Oscars After Party Dresses – BEST

On the other hand I wasn’t so keen on Paris Jackson‘s dress. Too much, and a lot of elements. Janelle’s red outfit was… interesante… but not my cup of tea. Same goes with Rosie Huntington‘s dress – very… matronly somehow. (I wish I looked that good when I looked bad though).

2018 Oscars After Party Dresses! – WORST

Unimpressed. This perfectly sums up my 2018 Oscars Red Carpet feelings, almost to the point I’m thinking of making a 3 list: 1) best dressed, 2) okay ‘meh’ dressed , and 3) worst. But I’m not. I’m gonna stick to the good ol’ classic best and worst, and hope for the best, that is – my inner bitch to STFU so we can all proceed in a civilized manner.

So YES… I was not a big fan of 2018 Oscars red carpet, in fact I think some of the celebrities wore the better dress to the after party. Lupita Nyongo I’m looking at you. So between this unimpressed bored mood the 2018 oscars red carpet got me into… I’m also in awe at the awe of the entire internet about Nicole Kidman, and Lupita, and other big beautiful stars who actually, in my humble and appraently very off-key this year’s opinion, were not so show-stoppers. Some were okay, and some were actually horendous.

2018 Oscars red carpet felt like a bubble that burst too late or too quickly and left everyone (meaning me. go on, roll your eyes, I’m rolling mine at myself at this point) a bit unimpressed (for lack of better word). It’s as if you’re waiting for a sneeze all morning, and between this is it, and another missed sneeze-window… it finally happens 1,980 hours too late and it’s the lousiest piece of shitty sneeze ever. Yes, the 2018 Oscars red carpet were a sneeze.

Or… I could be the odd one out on this one. Maybe everyone did slay. I just need to wake up and smell the damn coffee.

2018 Oscars Red Carpet – Best Dressed

I am so signing my fashion death sentence with this one, but God help me if I loved Nicole Kidman’s Armani Prive dress. Y’all, I tried to love it, and actually did for a brief 7 seconds, but as much as I LOVE the colour, the design, the length (finally she got it right), how it looks against her complexion, love her makeup, hair, the whole damn circus – I can’t get pass that bloody front bow. Nicole, why didn’t you get the big one? I get it, it’s a couture number, it’s high fashion, she can wear it, who the hell am I… but it wasn’t wow for me. It was an ‘oh’ moment. Still qualified for best dressed, but I wouldn’t be *that* excited about it.

Allison Janey had one of the best red dresses ever, such a fab red carpet moment for her. Allison Williams looked incredibly stunning, as did Mary J. Blige, who I think was one of the best dressed. I LOVED Betty Gabriel’s green-turquoise dress, with that infinity plunging neckline. Perfect colour. Gal Gadot, Gina Rodriguez, who, although had one of those I-think-I’ve-seen-this-dress-before-kinda-dress on, did look beautiful. Greta Gerwing looked very pretty and simple. Maybe too so for the Oscars.

Helen Mirren and Jane Fonda shut down the Oscars. I mean… that’s how you fucking do it. Jane is 80 years old people. And she still nails it.

I loved Jennifer Garner in blue, and I liked the dress, but I think the hair was a bit overwhelming. No?

Margot Robbie was as stunning as always, I love this girl in white. But (there is always a but this year I swear) those off the shoulder straps looked like Christmas tinsel. Ah whatever. Meryl Street, Mira Sorvino, Molly Sims – all were beyond beautiful and very Oscars style, yet still effortless.

I loved Samara Weaving. I don’t know who she is, but I liked the dress.

I loved Sandra Bullock, Taraji P. Henson – who does a bit of JLO and Sofia Vergara: has found her red carpet style and sticks to it. Well, maybe the dress is a bit too busy.

Viola Davis – I LOVED her. It’s a little too candy sweet and 80s 18 year old, but something about this look I LOVE, and I don’t care if the world disagrees. If she only lost that clutch.

Zendaya – stunning! Zoey Deutch was so simple and graceful. Sofia Carson was fire!

And Saoirse Ronan... man I don’t know… I like the colour, and the dress, but I hate the upper part, I think it’s ill fitted and ruins the whole look. But it’s not an ugly dress. Maybe it photographed bad?

And Jennifer Lawrence… I cannot stand her. I mean I don’t vibe with her at all. She’s trying so hard all the time to look so carless, and free spirited, like she’s this hillbilly who’s such a misfit into the glam world, like she doesn’t give a fuck, hence she’s above it all – yes we get it JLAW… we get it. But I for one, just wanna say I ain’t falling for that crap. Be it real or not. What the fuck was up with that laughing at/with Emma Stone moment? Aaaaanywaaaay – her dress? It’s not bad, but I don’t vibe with it either. That line cut it had right at the thighs kinda ruined it. It wanted to be such a studio 54 moment, but somehow it felt like the dress wore her, instead of the other way around. Nonetheless it is a very sexy gorgeous dress.

2018 Oscars red carpet – Worst dressed

Whoopi Goldberg – what in the name of the lord are you wearing? Having a dress party all by yourself? Anyway… another death sentence for me on this one, cause the whole internet was so in awe with this look – she looked like a lizard casually visiting the Oscars, for God’s sake!!! The fit of the dress, the colour, the print, those tats, the sunglasses, the hair pulled back – were all points in one direction: not good. I get it, it’s cool, cause she’s such a badass, but the dress is fucking ugly.

Lupita Nyongo has the world of fashion wrapped around her finger. Uh-huh, not me. I didn’t see what the hell was so great about that dress. That’s the thing about lame fabric – it can look so cheap and dated it’s a very dangerous look to go for if you’re not an 80s icon, a studio 54 goddess, Rihanna…

Emma Stone looked like she came from the office, snatched a pink ribbon from some curtain somewhere and said, I’m off to the Oscars. Good for you.

Emily Blunt on the other hand wanted it all. And so she wore it. Are you still in there Emily? Sorry I can’t tell if you’re swallowed yet but all that fabric?

Haley Bennett decided to glue some dog hair to her dress. And Salma Hayek well… how much time you got? Lord have mercy, there is not one great thing about this look, except her beautiful self, but we’re talking dresses, and her’s is absolutely horrendous, Gucci or no Gucci.

Okay, that’s it for me for now… I’m just soooooo curious to see what you guys think, so please feel free to comment below your faves and least faves.

Last Sunday was a good day. I ate like a normal person, I had a good outfit on,  2018 SAG awards red carpet happened, and… 1) it was absolutely gorgeous, with metallic gowns and bold colourful dresses being centre stage, 2) ‘This is us’ being the winner of the night, and 3) The Pearsons killing it in blue. I truly think, from the bottom of my heart Mandy Moore looked beyond stunning. Glamorous simplicity in blue! Best of the night and one of my fave looks on the red carpet ever!

 

2018 SAG Awards Red Carpet – BEST DRESSED

YES, Mandy Moore owned the red carpet, or maybe it’s just me on this one, but that Ralph Lauren blue sequin simple dress was stunning. It’s her colour for sure. I loved the makeup, the hair, so simple, so effortless. Altogether she looked like she just woke up, stood in a makeup chair for 15 minutes, finger-combed her bed-head hair, put some perfume on and slipped into the most seductive dress ever. I used to hate blue… now I don’t anymore.

Actually all the Pearsons on the show showed up in blue dresses and looked gorgeous! Like Susan Kelechi Watson. She’s one of the most beautiful women out there, she can wear whatever she wants, she’ll nail it 100%, but this cobalt blue dress…. shut the front door.

The moment I saw Kristen Bell’s dress I let a loud ‘oh my god’ slip. BEYOND beautiful. It’s not the dress as much as that colour that is making this look a show stopping moment. It’s so princess style but somehow it doesn’t bother me because it has that glam simplicity to it, and it’s all complimented by the hair, makeup and spot-on jewellery. LOVED it.

Reese Witherspoon continued the colour explosion with the most beautiful and cold shade of green, a very tricky colour if you ask me, but it fits her like a glove. Again, I think the colour is the star, not necessarily the dress. A clean, simple, elegant red carpet look. I didn’t really like the upper part, but I kinda like the whole vibe. So…

Another dress, another colour. Again… I might be alone in this, or maybe I’m losing it or something but I kinda liked Sydelle Noel‘s dress. Man, that yellow is killing me, and that Beyonce Lemonade vibe the dress has, it’s giving me life! I would’ve liked the upper part to be less ruffled, but I don’t care. The colour and that flowy bottom part, the no necklace (naked jewellery statement), and big hair – they’re making this look a best for me.

And then there were the cape dresses. Y’all know I’m not like a massive fan, but if it’s beautiful and dramatic, and I sigh… I’m sold. I don’t know who she is, but Renee Bargh is one powder blue goddess! That dress, that cut, the front cut, the brooch, the way the dress drapes and falls, how it’s fitted but it’s flowy… I wanna go and literally buy everything in baby blue right now and wear it.

Laura Linney looked so elegant and dainty. That pink shade goes perfectly with her complexion and her hair.

Of course Tracee Ellis Ross killed it! She’s such a red carpet queen. I love white dresses. Period. And this particular one I loved that it’s simple but intricate, with the front slit, and the half cape. The fact that she went for white shoes and white clutch is making an even more elegant statement. She’s glowing and looks incredibly old-school elegant with a dash of edge.

It’s not a cape, and it’s not a train, but it turned heads and made my heart skip a beat. Yara Shahidi was one of 2018 SAG Awards red carpet’s queens of style. Again simplicity, minimal jewellery, natural beautiful hair – the whole look will remain a red carpet moment, I think. It’s a simple (maybe too simple) black pantsuit that just slays! Period. She’s absolutely gorgeous, insanely beautiful, and looks so fierce, which helps too, cause it looks like she’s wearing the gown not the other way around.

And who doesn’t love Millie Bobby Brown‘s look. Red carpet and sneakers. If anyone could rock this it’s her. She’s still a kid, so this look is pure perfection, as she’s just having fun and not bothering with high heels, grownup accessories, yet she’s still doing a red carpet dress. Cape dress that is. Ish. Sort of like a train. Again – simplicity, minimal jewellery, and pastel colours. LOVE this little girl and her fashion sense.

Another pastel and draping moment is Goldie Hawn. Any particular thoughts on this look? While she went for one of the most beautiful shades of pastel, she didn’t hold back on jewellery, and that’s cool. The dress is nice, and she’s a best dressed because she’s truly an icon, and the whole look is a moment. While it might not be her best, it’s still elegant and romantic.

And now… the gliteratiiiiiiii moment. YES there were a ton of glitter, metallic liquid, and sequin dresses at the 2018 SAG Awards red carpet, and almost all of them looked amazing. One of my favourites were Giuliana Rancinc and Lupita Nyongo. Giuliana’s dress was pure statement but not in a big over the top kinda way, it was elegant, and modern, refined and of course sexy. Perfect match with the hair. Lupita looked so sexy and sleek. Minimal jewellery, simple look as if she and that liquid metallic dress did all the work. Well, they actually did.

Who says you can’t do sequins a la beachy style. What am I even saying?! Tanika Rey‘s dress is just that: the effortlessness of the summer dress, simple cut, flowy, un-pretencious, yet the fabric is super glamorous. A nude elegant colour is perfect fur such a dress, that might have not worked. But it does somehow, with the no necklace trend, and tons of rings, bold lips, minimal makeup, natural hair. I like it.

Erin Lim is a red carpet beauty. The fringes are kinda cabaret looking but the dress is very beautiful. Now I love nude sequin dresses, so I might be biased, but this look is very simple and sophisticated. Danielle Brooks, wore such a beautiful dress. Perfect colour and cut.

Natalie Zea and Allison Janney were like metallic statues and that’s not so bad. Maybe it was all just too sleek and un-interrruped or something (if there’s even such a thing), but it was glamours without being ostentatious. Marisa Tomei – I kinda liked it, very simple, tea-length dress, column straight, sequin and glam but very relaxed at the same time. She looks tres chic.

Nicole Kidman was okay, but certainly not wow. She rarely is for me, in fact she’s always somewhere in between nice and okay. The dress itself sucks, and the colour is ugly (at this point I’m not even sure why she’s on the best dressed list), but the hair and makeup are great and she somehow works this dress. Olivia Munn – gorgeous. Very sophisticated.

Halle Berry was one of the most gorgeous women out there. I mean she’s like that by default so… I love it, I love it, I love it. Even with that black see through curtain that was totally unnecessary. She is a goddess.

Leslie Mann was very beautiful in her simple mermaid blue sequin gown. Elizabeth Moss looked very French chic and elegant. Selenis Leyv was very sexy.

Madeline Brewer looked like she came from a high fashion editorial. Insanely gorgeous and so chic, in this very icy-cool-high-glamour sort of way. Perfect lipstick and shoes. Like perfect!

Amanda Warren was one hot gal, and while there’s a lot of tulle going on… it’s not bad. Not very high-sophisticated either, but I think she looks beautiful. A bit of sequin or glitter somewhere on that dress might have made it look more high fashion somehow, and more glamorous.

And the 2 princesses that were so pretty and so glamours: Dakota Fanning and Margot Robbie. I loved Dakota’s dress, and even her monochromatic overall look. She looks stunning and very red carpet worthy. Margot… I was first thinking what the hell? A feathers belt? But I sat on it (figuratively speaking) and now I love it.

Taryn Manning is the picture of edgy and drama. It looks good, and she looks beautiful. And that black and white combo of the dress and shoes is kinda cool. Alexandra Breckenridge‘s dress was very wow at first sight. Then I didn’t like it, but now…. I think I like it again. I know, I’m such a pillar of consistency. Something about it is maybe too matronly, yet the metallic detail, her tats, and the colour of the dress are balancing it out. I would have liked it more fitted, like mermaid style… Shocking I know.

2018 SAG Awards Red Carpet – Worst Dressed

Okay everyone, let’s begin with the big debate: Kate Hudson‘s dress. The internet was so split between loving and hating it that I too have to give my ‘oh-so-savvy-sartorial-opinion’ (*rolls eyes). Her look is so beautiful, her hair and makeup are absolutely gorgeous. Too bad that old-maid’s-wanna-look-glam-dress is absolutely horrible. She looks like a fucking cupcake on steroids. I can tell from the photo the fabric is absolutely fantastic, so delicate and fluid and flowy, moving with the tiniest bit of wind. The color is great too, but it’s just too much. I get it. Like, in the world of high pretentious fashion, I get the dress. Valentino went for this romantic edgy queen, with a dash of punk and some dainty princess vibes too – but IRL it does’t really do it. Maybe without the upper part, the black lace… Or maybe without that black ribbon… Oh I know. Maybe a different dress! Yes.

So I don’t like it. Nevertheless it’s a look and a bit of statement.

Allison Williams… same story as the above. Too magazine editorial rather than ready to wear for the red carpet. Or maybe the dress wore her instead of the other way around. Oh… and I also think it was a too dark look for her. I do love the dress thought. A lot. But overall I think it was too harsh for her.

Natalie Dyer – I didn’t like it. The dress looks undone somehow, with the upper part too tank-top-wanna-be-fancy and the lower part too playful somehow. I don’t know. I did not like it. Same goes for Ryan Michelle Bathe – pretty, with a dash of too pretty, and then some 80s prom vibe. They’re not ugly dresses per se… but something is off.

Abbie Cornish just like Kate Hudson probably wanna start some cool-romanic red carpet dresses vibe, but it ain’t working. Actually I love the dresses – in that fashion sort of way… but I just don’t see them for the red carpet.

Yvonne Strahovski – why? So she wants to look romantic but glamours, and also like she’s teaching something, but is kinda sexy too, while rocking the red carpet. Kudos to you. It’s exactly the same type of dress as the above – looks great on the runway and in magazines, but looks off IRL red carpet.

Natasha Lyonne what in the name of God is that monster around your hands? It’s such a 90s red carpet style… The dress is okay, but the rest just ruined it. Kelly Marie Tran you are beautiful but that dress is not so much. It would have looked great mermaid or column style, no hoop earrings but instead something more high class, and maybe without a double fold at the chest.

Continuing the romantic goth princess style is Kate Nash. Evidently these dresses were a trend. The thing is I love them. Like I’d wear them to a fashion event, with high heels and a leather jacket on top… certainly not at the 2018 SAG Awards red carpet.

Maya Rudolph, for the love of God no. Odeya Rush – she looks okay but too structured and geometrical. Un-human somehow. Not feeling this look at all. Susan Sarandon you are a queen, but seriously, it’s a no for this whole look. You can’t possibly resort to sequins to save the day… it does’t work like that. I first put Lauren Dern on this list too, but now she ain’t that bad. I didn’t like the fit of the dress tbh, nor her hair.

Molly Sims. Okay bye. Brie Larson, why! It’s such a ridiculous dress I’m speechless. The fabric looks cheap, the print looks tacky, it looks like it smells of old age and about 100 year old passing of time. No.

Saoirse Ronan… is pretty much dressed like those old-school monks. Except in pink. Mary J. Blige was a swan. And Sally Hawkings was a 70s psychedelia. The dress itself is kinda cool, but if it were shorter, and with a belt it’d have worked better.

And now it’s your turn to share your faves or least faves in the comments below.

Never in recent years has there been a red carpet event so talked about, for other reasons other than fashion per se. This alone is a massive milestone in everything 2018 Golden Globes Red Carpet stood for: Time’s up and #MeToo movements supported and voiced loud and clear, bold and beautiful by women and men alike.

Like never before all celebrities stood together (with a couple of exceptions from the colour code rule) and wore all black outfits in support of equality and truth. Saying no to sexual harassment, gender pay gap, discrimination of all sorts, racism, power play, and all the negative issues women have had to deal with for decades – was all in the spotlight. Celebrities were telling it like it is, putting a name on it (Debra Messing addressing the E! situation of Cat Sadler’s leaving the network) for the first time ever. Live. On the red carpet. United through a dress code – all black – by the same movement and beliefs.

Amen!

Oprah Winfrey summed this all up into one of the best speeches ever, whose aftermath has everyone begging her to run for president, and according to this morning’s news… for the first time she didn’t say no. It was compelling, heartfelt, pure truth, strong, empowering and so so emotional.

Basically good people are sick of bullies, keeping their mouths shut, and playing polite over truth to save appearances, in the film industry and all over the world, from the top A celebrity to the cleaning lady in your office building. Time’s up, and we’re done with turning a blind eye to casual insults, discriminatory behaviour and what not.

With everything happening in the world out there, and with all that went down at the Emmy’s 2017 #womenrock, the great speeches, amazing, talented women being awarded and celebrated after having had fantastic opportunities to play great roles so they can showcase their talents, talking about the Emmy’s 2017 red carpet of all things, is the most trivial thing one could do. Yet here I am. Truth is, I have given a few thoughts to whether or not I really want to go on my usual red carpet rants, cause I feel like that idiot that stays behind and argues a point when everyone else has moved on. #ilovetoembarassmyslef

But, here’s the thing: 1) I have no possible way of watching the show, except for the red carpet on E! (which is aired in Europe later than live obviously), so this alone puts me in a very red carpet-ish angle, and the rest of the story, the best part, aka Nicole Kidman’s speech, Reese’s speech, the winners, the faces, the host, the comments, the vibes, how women rocked this year, and what a milestone it all was for empowerment and equality, and celebrating talent all around (also known under the name of feminism) – I can only access online, dispersed and biased already. So there’s that, and 2) while I’m all for the above 1,000% I LOVE talking red carpet fashion. Period.

Emmy’s 2017 red carpet was one of the most stylish carpets I’ve ever seen. Maybe there was something in the air cause everything just came together that night for everyone there. Well, except those who did’t win, and really wanted to, and those who were not so best dressed, in case they wanted to be. Scrolling through all the photos I was actually “worried” I’d have no worst contenders.

Turns out, there are a few who took one for the worst dressed team. So let’s go.

Emmy’s 2017 Red Carpet – Best Dressed

The whole cast of Big Little Lies has got to be here. Maybe Shailene Woodley not so much, I mean I loved the dress but I felt like the hair was very peasant-praire style inspired, colour and texture as well. Nicole Kidman finally shut it down!!!!! I gave up on her red caret efforts long time ago, but this year her dress was beyond perfect for her. She looks stunning  in red, that’s a fact, and the silhouette was great. I would have freaked out if they tried to put me in that length, so… I love that she went for it,  but I was also scared for Nicole. Hair – stunning. Makeup – fab! The upper part of the dress was insane.

Reese Witherspoon is one of my faves and her choice of that blazer dress was not bad. I think she made it look amazing, she wore it fab with her long blonde hair that popped against the colour of the dress. I really liked it. And I do think she wore the dress not vice versa, and any other person would not have pulled this off so great.

Susan Saradon. Perfection. Can I look like that when I grow up? The cut, the style everything was classic,  simple, and glamorous.

Gugu Mbata Raw – stunning!!! Everything about this look is show stopping in the most natural and effortlessly beautiful way possible. The dress is glitter, liquid glitter and sequins, and it’s so simple and flattering on her it’s amazing. I love that she kept it all simple and accessorised with earrings of the same dress colour.

Zoe Kravitz looks like a beautiful bird. A lot of women went for the ostrich feathers look, but few pulled it off. Zoe’s edge mixes perfectly with the super glam and sweet side (possibly tacky) of the feathers. I love the pearls, cause it makes it all so eclectic but feminine in a very edgy kinda of way. Rocknroll with a girly twist. So if course she was the only one who pulled off this look. It’s one of those looks that the more you look at, the more you love it.

Rashida Jones was beautiful. I loved the dress and felt it had so much movement and silky slippery kinda texture to it. The design, the cut, how she looked it in it – pure flawlessness. Vanessa Kirby – not to crazy about the hair, but the dress!!! Oh my. One of my faves.

Viola Davis stunning!!!! She always always always looks beautiful on the red carpet. The colour of the dress is so good on her it’s absolutely gorgeous.

Somebody call the firepolice or something. Hello Gina Rodriguez! Oh my god. This is so sexy it’s almost impossible to look at. The plunging neckline, the fabric, the long sleeves, the hair pulled back, those earrings, natual makeup – it’s all pure glamour.

Emmy Rossum looked so red carpet glam, old-school meets 2017 classic. Loved the simplicity of the dress, and the hair was beautiful, side parted, old Hollywood style, with the perfect earrings. I’m not really a fan of such big dresses, but this one I love.

Michelle Pfeiffer… everyone was blown away by how gorgeous she looked. I thought she looked ok. |The dress is beautiful, so is she, but let’s not get carried away here. Julie Bowen was superb. I love that she chose a dress that was simple, but not really, and went for full on classic bling. It seems it’s all about the classic jewellery this year.

Madeline Brewer was very stunning and high fashion. The high big shoulders and that earring were like fashion editorial, and the dress so so glamorous and beautiful.

Susan Kelechi Watson is one of my fave women. I absolutely adore her on This is us, and she slayed it at the Emmy’s 2017 red carpet. She looks like a goddess in that dress. I’m in love with that dress. Perfect cut, slit, upper part, shoes were great, hair and makeup brilliantly natural… maybe I would have picked more diamond like earrings.

Sofia Vergara is ok, but I am a little bit so over her red carpet looks, because they’re literally so did done did it’s crazy. Okay the dress is more birdie style, with the ostrich feather being a trend I guess looking like a bird was the go-to thing this year. It’s a beautiful dress, she is a beautiful woman, but come on! I would have picked more classic jewellery, nothing too chandelier-y, and I would have done a side part hairstyle with old Hollywood waves. I think that would have made wonders.

When I first saw Mandy Moore, i was like what the fuck woman, but then seeing more photos from different angles i am loving this dress. it;s so ‘oreo’ dramatic and fun i adore it. and the lipstick is amazing on her. LOVE.

Felicity Huffman looked beautiful and classic. Laverne Cox hot as hell as always.

Speaking of hot… Yonne Strahovski dayum woman!!!! She is one of the most beautiful women I’ve seen. That dress is like held together by invisible little birds (again with the birds). It’s so sexy and so revealing but also incredibly beautiful, without being tacky. Love the hair the make up and that choker.

Also Tessa Thomson looked so good. It was a heard look to pull off, so colourful and so MTV-like awards, but I think she rocked it. Sarah Hyland was stunning, I love her. Erin Lim was shut the front door. I love  this busy opulent Dolce and Gabbana Sicily inspired style so much. it’s perfection for me, but I’m aware it;s a not an easy look to digest.

When I saw Padma Laksmi I was literally blown. Wow! she has unleashed her sex-bomb persona and I love it. the sultry make up, the cleavage, that pink against hair hair and dress. it was a bit too much at first, but why the hell not. she seems to love it, and i love it for her. btw her hair looks amazing.

Nina Kiri very effortlessly beautiful, young, edgy but fresh. Kristin Cavalari very simple (maybe too simple) and cute. Liliana Vasquez looked so good, very beautiful and classic with a bit of drama courtesy of the black belt and accessories. Loved it.

Emmy’s 2017 Red Carpet – Worst Dressed

Please hate me if you want, I don’t care, but Jessica Biel wore the ugliest dress ever, and she topped it all with the ugliest hair ever. I really don’t know which is worse, the hair or the dress, but she looks like she stepped off some 80s prom situation. Oh my god, I keep looking at it, and I don’t get it. what is with that pink fabric over the sequins?

Anyone?!

Heidi Klum please clap your hands for me. Oh wait, don’t. You’ll hurt yourself and wake up half the world with those bangles girl. and as if those weren’t enough you popped a few earrings in there too, of all styles – chandelier. And you’re giving us major cleavage and major slit #vajajayalert, and a bright tan… I’m so tired right now from this look. The dress is very maxi summer inspired, and it’s not bad, but not for red carpet, and not with those bangles. What is this, 2000’s?!

Vanessa Bayer somebody just threw up all over you. Oh wait, no, it’s your dress.

You guys, what happens when an ostrich meets a disco ball? They have a party and it looks like the dress Tracee Ellis Ross wore. My oh my. What happens when too much is too much.

Ariel Winter is more like Ariel Summer hot but not in a good way. it’s too much for me. those slits are like the dresses you wear in latin dance competitions, not red carpet appropriate, it’s too tight, too sexy-in a try-too-hard kinda way.

Samantha Bee looks too harsh. It’s not bad, but something about that dress makes me feel so uncomfortable. It’s too structured and blazer inspired and too green. I don’t really like it. I love her hair and her smile and her jewellery.

Lea Michelle she should not be here on the worst list, which in itself should be more like my least fave list, cause she looks beautiful, but i just feel like the belt ruined the look entirely. It looks like a jeans belt, and that is a sequin red carpet dress. I’m also not a big fan of that type of cleavage and straps.

Amanda Crew – I’m still not sure about it. I wanna love it, but I dont know. Is it see-through and is that a peak into her naked body? Not that there’s anything wrong with it. Really now, I just think it’s ok but she looks like a bedazzled condom.

Leslie Jones she’s so great and I love her but I don’t like her dress and I wanna love it but I can’t. Crying right now. I don’t know why i don’t like it. maybe there should be no slit? Or maybe those earrings are too bedazzled for that bedazzled dress? Help!!!

Debra Messing is messing around in nylon. No, actually she’s lost in a not so pretty dress. Samira Wiley I love the dress, but the upper ruined it: it’s too much. it should have stopped at the cleavage.

Priyanka Chopra why?!!!! So she went with the bird trend, and that dress ostrich train or trumpet ruined it. also it felt like the dress was more like a cotton thick restraining jacket. it does look good, but certainly not what I expected. maybe it would have worked better without those shoulder-arm details. or maybe no feathers.

Laura Dern – tomato tomato. #ostrichalert

Oh my god, somebody call the sheriff! Evan Rachel Wood is in the house. She’s always going for masculine lookms but this is a no no for me. is that a cropped jacket, it that a long vest underneath? Why not a simple blazer?

Mackenzie Davis – well… she is so beautoul but she fucked it up. I have nothing else to say. I don’t wanna say anything. #crying.

That was not at all my long rant, but I’m so excited to read your comments, cause guess what: they’re working! So please feel free to let me know who was your fave or least fave and let’s talk about it.

Can we all agree that the 2017 Oscars were a bit awkward and not what we expected, hence the tons of opinions on the fashions, the winners, the losers, and the La La Land versus Moonlight situation/stunt?

What the entire universe can agree on through is that the Oscars after-parties had celebrities looking much better than the actual red carpet. To a certain extent it’s understandable, they’re more relaxed, they just wanna have fun, party, drink, and dance, and meet with their friends. You know… a regular Friday night, only in designer clothes and rubbing elbows with Ryan Gosling. 

Photos of Reese Witherspoon taking selfies with her friends and laughing while looking amazing is all of us when we go out. Well…. sort of. Viola Davis wearing sneakers and a fab pant-suit is beyond cool and elegant at the same time. Emma Stone‘s relaxed outfit just screams ‘I just wanna have a drink and enjoy myself now. Who cares about fashion.’ 

Then there was Demi Lovato. Stop. The models. Stop. Sofia Vergara, Kate Hudson, Jessica Alba – everyone looked insanely hot and pretty.

But is there a code to the sartorial choices of the Oscars dresses for the red carpet versus the after-party?

According to Vogue there is, and it’s all about glaming it all up on the red carpet and going for a more laid back version for the party. A second dress should not up-stage the actual Oscars dress, and should be just that, a quick change of outfits that goes with letting your hair down and enjoying yourself. It shouldn’t look as if you could not decide between 2 dresses.

Well now… makes sense doesn’t it? According to this rule Vogue named the best after party dresser Alicia Vickander. 

Now go grab a drink, a mojito, a coffee, champagne, water, whatever floats your boat and look at how the stars party.

Who was your fave?

Last night was one of the biggest and most eventful nights in Hollywood Oscars’s history. Viola Davis won her Oscar being the first black woman to win an Oscar, Emmy, and Tony award for acting.  Mahershala Ali won best supporting actor being the first muslim to win this award, La La Land won best picture. Oh, sorry, no, scratch that. It was Moonlight. That’s how it went down. Oh… and the red carpet seemed poor in ‘wow’s’ and stunning best dressed.

I decided to not sugar coat anything. I’m already having major sweets craving, I don’t need such temptation in my life. So I will be direct and subjectively honest when it comes to 2017 Oscars red carpet. It was one of the worst red carpets. Yes, there were obviously best dressed actresses and those who were looked beyond amazing and stunning and my heart literally skipped a beat, but there were too few.

I also felt like everyone was waiting for this carpet to make a fashion statement be it edgy or classic and most didn’t. They actually blew it. It’s like they stayed for so long in anticipation mode that they eventually got bored and didn’t bother too much.

Best dressed – Oscars 2017 Red Carpet

Viola Davis looked beyond perfect. The dress was a simple gorgeous mermaid in the best colour ever. Red looks insane on her and she pulled it off like a winner! I loved the entire look, form dress to hair and makeup. She looked beautiful. Emma Stone in Givenchy was the perfect image of how to wear gold’ish tones. I LOVED the contrast of the dress with her darker red hair and bold makeup up. So fashion and old Hollywood. Continuing the golden love was Jessica Biel who pulled off a very risky look if you ask me. She looked amazing, but the dress as gorgeous it is, has a bit of that army/ripped fabric effect. Even a bit of Flintstones fashion vibe. Nevertheless I loved it. I’m loving long sleeves on red carpet dresses more and more. It also had this 70s glam vibe to it.

Olivia Culpo – OH MY GOD! Stunning. Perfection. Beautiful. It’s simple, dramatic, very sexy in such a classic 20s roaring dazzling way it’s irresistible. I love the black belt and the contrasting dark nails. Love her hair and makeup. Ah…. I am in love with this look.

Ruth Negga. Are you kidding me? SLAY! This is beyond perfect and I think she took a massive risk here to go for a full on dramatic look, so powerful, and visually so strong for the Oscars, when everyone plays it safe, that it’s insane she did that, and pulled it off 100000%. LOVED the dress, the boho-romatic-dramatic-high-fashion style, loved the hair, the makeup. Beautiful.

Sofia Carson was wow. Simplicity and classic to the core and done with supreme perfection. I love how she was not afraid to keep it minimal and simple. That red lip was the only extravagance she went for and it payed off big time. Gorgeous.

Isabelle Huppert looked so elegant, beautiful and effortless. I love that she went for a very glamorous but relaxed dress, in which she looked comfortable. She killed it.

Okay, Darby Stanchfield looked amazing, but what the hell is up with the cape dress. My friend and fellow blogger Vanessa, over at Budding Fashionista blog said so well: ”the white cape dress. Is Hollywood not over it yet?”. Apparently not, but I’m over it. I love everything about this look, from the dress, to the colour, the cut, the upper part, the flowy rich bottom, the earrings, the hair, I even love the damn cape, but WE ARE OVER IT. Karlie Kloss, really?! Yes it’s all nice and rainbows and butterflies, but I don’t get the cape. I never really loved it, it always felt it was a bit shoved down my throat, but I took it cause it was different, classic, high fashion whatever… Now I’m done.

Emma Roberts looked very pretty, but what I didn’t really like was that dirty yellow’ish white part of the dress. It was a good look, a very classic with an edge style and she pulled it off.

Taraji P. Henson. STOP. Bow down bitches. I love love love love love this dress, and how she was feeling it too. Massive style crush and hotness. Love that she kept it sexy and simple, with just a statement necklace and high slit. It’s the classic red carpet sexy dress that we haven’t seen in such a long time, and I’m so glad she did this look.

Giniffer Goodwin had another version of Ruth Nega’s dress. Different style, same dress sort of. Major faux pas. But she looked good. Ava DuVernay stunning!!!! Again the long sleeves rule. Perfection.

Kirsten Dunst was oh. my. god. Too beautiful. She owned this dramatic very glam style. Chrissy Teigen… cape. And she’s like so in our face lately. Literally speaking. She always looks good. That’s all imma say about it.

Nicole Kidman… Can we all take a moment and say a big thank you and a standing ovation. She finally nailed it. My God, it took only like a 1,567,046,944 red carpets worst dressed lists but she did it. It’s all in the simple choices.

Priyanka Chopra she’s so stunning this woman can wear anything. I don’t know how this dress looks from the side, but from the front I love it.

Brie Larson looks sooooo pretty and refined. She looks like a designer’s stunning sketch. It’s glamorous, elegant, classic, beautiful. Love the hair and makeup too.

Naomie Harris looked sleeked and elegant and beautiful but I still think it was not very Oscar’ish. What the hell do I know?

Worst dressed – 2017 Oscars Red Carpet

[[[[ I am so curious to watch E! red carpet show and Fashion Police and find out what the hell is up with Giuliana Rancic’s dress. I am devastated. I don’t get it: the design is – what the hell is it? the fabric looks like shit, and the colour is great but not on her. Bad photo?! ]]]]] ;’*you guys…. this was my first thought. I have just caught a glimpse of her on E! red carpet talking about the dress and I love it. It was a bad photo. #happyagain

I know everyone was so excited over Zuri Hall‘s dress. I just think they’re all insane. That long waist is horrible, and while the dress is pretty colour wise and those appliqués are amazing, and the colour is fantastic on her, and her hair and makeup are great – that design  looks off on her (and on anyone else for that matter), a bit ill fitted, and not right, I don’t care how high fashion it was supposed to be.

Stacy London. Are you fucking kidding me? I have no words. The hair is great, the earrings are amazing, the colour of the dress is perfect for her… but all of them together, for the Oscars… did she lose a bet or something? And what in the name of the Lord is up with those shoes. Is this like a social experiment?

Blanca Blanco… …. …. you guys am I crazy or is this dress a bit great and hideous at the same time? I adore the sandals and the dress is major high fashion, that slit is perfect, but something makes me hate it. Maybe the overly puffy shoulders or that red belt…

Felicity Jones and Raphaela Neihausen… girls, we know Alicia Vickander wore that yellow dress at the Oscars last year or so, but that doesn’t mean it’s a ticket to winning best dressed. Hence your situation this year. I don’t like the dresses. Simple as that. I’m not a big fan of tea-lenght and certainly not at the Oscars. They’re not ugly of course… but I’m not feeling them.

Teresa Palmer – long waist, belt? What?! It’s like stylists and designers have agreed to make some people at the Oscars look not so flattering. She’s stunning either way… but that dress is not.

Leslie Mann shut down the internet with her dress, and everyone in fashion was in awe of how amazing she looked. I was un-impressed. It was wrinkled, and she looked like she ran off from a fashion shoot before they finished up her look.

Janelle Monae did exactly the opposite – she stayed with the glam team and the designers way too long, until they added all they could and then some on her dress and her look altogether. She looked too done, overly embellished, busy, too much.

Okay, can we all please talk about Dakota Johnson‘s dress, but without the pretentious fashion bullshit? Again the world’s sartorials died and said she killed it. She killed us, that’s what she did. Did you guys like it? I thought it looked hideous. I mean… yeah very cool and edgy and editorial FOR AN EDITORIAL. But it was wrinkled, it was sad, it was willowy, it was crying on her for God’s sakes. No?! Am I alone here?

Michelle Williams… she’s a very pretty girl but her style is so not my style, and I can’t for the love of me like it. Where’s the makeup, and the glam? It’s the Oscars for the love of God. I know she is wearing makeup, and jewellery, and she looks simple and pretty but something about this look I’m not feeling.

Alicia Vickander came out of the shower put on some dress (again the long waist), some diamond necklace and showed up. Btw… you forgot your makeup and you left your hair in your bun.

Scarlett Johansson was a no no. What the hell did she wear, last Tuesday’s vomit? She’s in this rockroll edgy phase I think. I don’t like it. Salma Hayek just wore her glam nightgown and didn’t bother too much. Ah well… we were all in pyjamas too at that point, why bother.

Charlize Theron and Halle Berry. Why? Maybe it’s just me but I thought they looked kinda meh. Bored. Not wow. Charlize Theron’s dress was too much fabric, and wrong hair, and colour of the dress. Bad styling. And Halle’s was great, but I think the hair ruined it. There I said it. You can now judge me and hate me.

Your turn.

A little longer than one week into 2017 and a lot has happened. Like the 2017 Golden Globes, with a red carpet that left me a little disappointed at first, but then kinda grew on me. Maybe I have high standards, or maybe my life is beyond boring but I was not blown away by any dress or look. Certainly not at first sight. So… with no coup de foudre happening I decided to sit on it, and let it sink in a bit before I start ranting about it.

And so I did.

Meanwhile I realized Brad Pitt was at the globes, so for me that was it. sigh.

2017 Golden Globes Red Carpet

Three days later the world wide web is talking more about Meryl Streep’s and Ryan Gosling’s speeches than the red carpet Golden Globes. Have we grown up? I must say…. I did cringe a little when I typed the title of this post, like who seriously gives a shit who the best or worst were. Watch the damn movies, enjoy the event, and focus on what really matters.

Apparently I have a shallow side, and it won today.

Left unimpressed by the gowns I decided to get off my high horse and maybe, just maybe look at everything with a not-so-bitchy-vibe you know. Here we go.

2017 Golden Globes Red Carpet – Best Dressed

I’m probably the least whimsical dress type girl out there, like give me a sexy mermaid dress and I’m done for life. However… 2017 Golden Globes red carpet showed me otherwise. Emma Stone looked simply beautiful. The dress was perfect, sweet, pretty, I adored the effortless hair and the heavy touch of bling. Same fairy-tale vibe had Hailee Steinfeld’s dress, with a tiny Mila Kunis throwback if you remember. I think it’s very ethereal-night-gown’ish-young-fresh-type-of-dress. Giuliana Rancic slay!!!! She’s always nailing it, and I always feel like she’s setting the tone for that red carpet. Hello princess slash whimsical dresses!

2017 Golden Globes Red Carpet 2017 Golden Globes Red Carpet2017 Golden Globes Red Carpet

Lily Collins oh my! Perfection. Just yesterday I was chatting with one of my readers on FB about this year’s red carpet and we were both pretty much on the same page – Lily Collins being sort of a red carpet winner despite her pink’ish fairy tale kinda gown, which is so not me. Clearly it’s hers. And she totally nailed it. Lola Kirke stuck to the same trend and looked great. A bit of Alexa Chung channeling if you ask me. Nothing wrong with it though.

2017 Golden Globes Red Carpet 2017 Golden Globes Red Carpet

Yellow was a bit hit on the rad carpet at the globes and I think Viola Davis won the look. Super glamorous in a very elegant clean style. Perfection. Maise Williams looked pretty, although that hairstyle was a bit too dated and prom-like. Loved the dress. So simple. Clean lines. Perfect body. Reese Witherspoon stuck to the why fix it if it ain’t broken and did a look she’s done before: the yellow dress. Hmm. A lot of channeling and throwback this year at the globes.

2017 Golden Globes Red Carpet 2017 Golden Globes Red Carpet 2017 Golden Globes Red Carpet

Then came the white-silver-golden gowns. LOVED most of these looks. Elsa Pataki looked stunning and very very va va voom in her see-through gown/ Loved the fact that she kept the rest on the low key: hair, makeup, jewelry. Beautiful. Sofia Vergara! Finally she did something somewhat new: new hair which I thought looked really great and sleek, and a gown that was everything all at once but it kinda worked. It was mermaid but it was not really. It was see through but not really. What it was in fact it’s super glamorous and very sexy. Loved the color, and the sleeves.

2017 Golden Globes Red Carpet 2017 Golden Globes Red Carpet

A new personal fave of mine on the red carpet is Priyanka Chopra who always looks stunning. I really loved the dress and and the whole look (hair and makeup on point) but, like of my readers pointed out the gown was a bit ill-fitted, perhaps too tight on the upper part.

2017 Golden Globes Red Carpet

Regina King perfection! I’m starting to love simple and clean cut dresses more and more. I think this one’s the definition of simple glamour. Sometimes less is more. Ruth Negga shut the front door. This look was probably the only one at which my heart skipped a beat. I adored everything from head to toe, the perfect hair and makeup, and the liquid fabric, it was all pure glamour done old Hollywood style in 2017. Speechless.

2017 Golden Globes Red Carpet 2017 Golden Globes Red Carpet

Another great look in my book was Thanadie Newton‘s. Again… I’m falling for simplicity. I must be either growing up and turning boring. It’s so no frills no drama it’s simply beautiful. Tracee Ellis Ross gorgeous! It’s so statuesque in a very nonchalant and effortless way. Really like the length of the dress and how it sits flawlessly on her body.

2017 Golden Globes Red Carpet 2017 Golden Globes Red Carpet

Olivia Culpo oh my God! She was one of my wow moments, again despite going for a red carpet dress style I’m not too crazy for – the big princess gown. But THIS I adored!!!! The wild prints, the big puffy dress, the upper part, and the beauty look was insane. I loved how dramatic and Dolce and Gabbana style it was, and I swear to wear this look – hair and makeup – forever this year. #InLove

2017 Golden Globes Red Carpet

Simplicity wins my heart again with Natalie Morales’s dress, and Kristen Cavallari‘s. I think Kristen was one of the best dressed actually, very red-carpet-by-the-book style. Everything about this dress and her beauty look were on point, and I think one of the reasons was cause she didn’t overdo it.

2017 Golden Globes Red Carpet

Jessica Beil looked great, but I wasn’t blown away by the dress. It was all a bit chaotic, but she did pull it off, and I think the reason for that is cause she balanced it all with a minimal makeup and hairstyle, and no massive bling. Gal Gadot was one of my favorites!!!! Simple, pretty, and very hot! The woman is glowing and she needed so little to look this good.

Emily Ratajkovski cause quite the internet commotion. She’s sexy and beautiful either way and the dress was very va va voom. One of the best certainly. I loved the fluidity and how effortless Greek Goddess she made it look. Loved the hair and the makeup and also that silver tie like details. Color wise – stunning!

Other ladies that looked great were Charissa Thomson – loved the color of the dress and this V-cut princess style is starting to grow on me. Busy Phillips very beautiful. Amy Adams stunning! I think she’s always gonna nail her red carpet looks. She’s always going for classic with as tiny twist, like the upper part of the dress was insane, it’s like it’s painted on her, and the fabric make sit so glam but the simple cut balances it all. LOVE! Sienna Miller and Amanda Peet were both okay, but a little meh. I wasn’t really feeling Sienna’s white beads or whatever. The dress though looked great, and it looked better on tv than in photos. Naomie Harris stunning!!! Simple but super glamorous. Hollywood style to the core. Many Moore looked good. I really liked it. It was a bit matronly but she pulled it off.

Kerry Washington... I really don’t know what to think of it. Sometimes I love it sometimes I don’t. What I do love is her makeup and hair. Then I love the color, and the upper part, so what I’m not really sure about it the length. She;s always going for this above-the-ankle-length… but I think I’m over it.

Chrstine Evanglista looked amazing! I love how the dress is soooo flowy on the bottom. Caitrona Balfe looked very elegant. I didn’t really like it at first but I think she actually picked a very refined and elegant gown. Blake Lively… I’m aware she’s not the worst dressed, but there;s just something off about her look… I will leave her at best dressed because the dress is stunning, and her while look is amazing, it’s just those damn pockets I think that kinda ruin some of the vibe.

Evan Rachel Wood… very editorial cool and sleek and sexy. Not my style. Not my fave. But a tuxedo look done well.

2017 Golden Globes Red Carpet – Worst Dressed

Might as well hand me a gun and I’ll shoot myself. Sarah. Jessica. Parker. My heart broke. The whole look was wrong, from the color to the hair and makeup. Perhaps it wouldn’t have been so bad without those sleeves but the dress is just too much or maybe too editorial for this event. Bridal gone wrong. Another gone wrong wedding look was Gillian Anderson… not so wrong but I really thought the hair ruined it majorly and while the dress was not bad at all, it was off a little bit. Too young for her or something. Yes I am aware I just signed my death sentence right now.

Janelle Monae looked great. For a freaking beauty pageant for kids. Things could have been worse, I mean she could have put stars in her hair. What what?! The dress is dated, and what is up with those polka dots just sewn on there?!

Karreuche Tran… she wasn’t that bad, I think what really worked against her was the dated prom vibe. The color I love and she’s so beautiful it’s hard to go wrong. Ah well…. better luck next time. #TooMuch80sVibe

Tiziana Rocca tsst, tsst? This was not a Halloween drill. I repeat this was not a Halloween drill. Moving on.

Naomi Campbell is rarely impressing me on the red carpet. She’s always going for these cake like dresses. We get it sweetie, you are a piece of fucking cake, but you don’t need to dress like one.

Another cake-complex is happening with Carrie Underwood. Why couldn’t you have kept the upper bodice clean? #wildthoughts

Felicity Jones proves there’s a not so great way to do the night’s ethereal trend. I hate this style dress anyway. It’s just too girly, too busy, too much.

Jessica Chastain is always so beautiful but every time I look at her dress I feel like I have to adjust the shoulders. Arhhh. Also that baby blue… is giving me mixed feelings. Julia Louis Dreyfus… not feeling it. It’s nice but not too flattering, like if the colors were switched it would have been better.

Kristen Wiig… what the hell?! Really not feeling this look. The dress I love up to the sleeves. The hair is just off. I don’t like it. She looks like she’s in a posh tablecloth for God’s sake.

Michelle Williams. Don’t get me started. The girl on the prairie vibe gone wrong. I get it, she’s like too pretty and too talented to give in to such trivial things like fashion and red carpet gowns and makeup… but really, pick another dress. How hard can it be.

Natalie Portman looks like a vase. What’s with the hair? And the makeup? The dress is fine I guess but a bit costume-like.

Nicole Kidman should just fire her stylist and get on with it. She’s got a perfect figure, and beautiful face, the world’s designers at her feet and she’s always on the worst dressed lists. Come on!!!!

Anna Chumski‘s green dress is not really that flattering. A simple cut, in a bold vibrant color like red or just simple black would have looked amazing. Anna Kendrick‘s upper part really made me say a loud wtf?! Or maybe it’s the pose. The color is not really that great either.

Claire Floy… what in the name of lawd is this? Such an unflattering cut and color. Also kinda dated. Drew Barrymore… not feeling it. She looked so all over the place, with a very messy gown, messy hair, messy effortless look. Nah.

Heidi Klum. I don’t know. The dress is amazing, but I’m not sure about how she styled it.

Liz Hernandez could have been the best dressed if only her gown would not have been so fitted. Like I love the simplicity of the dress and her look was beautiful. Comes to show you though how a tiny detail can make all the difference.

Winona Ryder major fail. Not a pretty dress at all. Sophie Turner... what the hell is that? It’s not ugly… not too ugly… it’s just too much and too many unnecessary details.

Chrissy Teigen... I don’t know what to say. #mixedfeelings I love the color and the texture and I love her hair and bold lips, but I’m not sure about that peplum thing.

Aaaaaand that’s a wrap. Now it’s your turn to share your faves and not so faves.

xoxo

This year’s Emmys Red Carpet, like never before looked as if all the celebrities out there were really really excited to wear the clothes, the gowns, the billions of posh jewellery and designers, and patroll in front of us like a crowd of beautiful non-mortals which they are. In all seriousness they looked like they were enjoying it, and decided to look fab.

They picked the best dresses, the best hair & makeup the red carpet has seen in a while.

Of course some of them overshared details we really don’t give a shit about: like that Amy Schumer what’s her name who let the world know she’s on her period and has got a ob shoved down her vagina. Of course it was a joke. But I still think somebody’s gotta tell that poor sucker she’s not that funny actually. Awww.

I am also well aware all the websites in the world now are praising her for feminism and speaking her mind for dropping  her tampon’s name on live tv. I just think we need to fucking wake up and smell the coffee and not ad a feminism and empowering label on literally anything these days that’s just pure ‘whatever’. That’s like saying imma shit in your shoes cause I 1) feel like it, 2) it’s not healthy to hold it in, and 3) there ain’t a toilet nearby. To which shitting half the world goes insane with prise cause what? I was real?! I did what I felt like? Oh please. We’re so missing the point on a lot of shit out there. Also, I so don’t get the hype with this Amy person.

Yeah, go on, judge me. Aaaaaaaanyway.

Fashion wise – Emmys 2016 red Carpet – was truly beautiful. The gowns were not boring, celebs stepped out of comfort zones aka black or red gowns, and went for sophisticated looks that made this year’s Emmys really really amazing.

In fact, it was so amazing the worst dressed list is basically non-existent. Okay… we’ve got a few candidates for that one, but aside from very few unfortunates, Emmys 2016 Red carpet is more like best and not-so-best-but-still-ok dresses.

Let’s get the ball rolling.

Best Dressed – Emmys 2016 Red Carpet

I truly loved a lot of the gowns and I can’t really pick just one bestest, but my heart skipped a few beats when I saw Taraji P. Henson, Kerry Washington (oh. my. God.), and Priyanka Chopra. Taraji looked fabulous and very effortless in that simple yellow dress. Loved her hair and makeup. Kerry Washington was beyond. SLAY! To have a sexy pregnant bump is one thing, but to rock that bump in such an insane dress is pure perfection. And Priyanka (sigh) I think she’s one of the most beautiful women in the world, and she picked a classic super feminine red carpet dress, with a bit of a train, a bit of details that danced around her. Stunning. Stu-nning.

I was happy to see Claire Danes looking like a golden statue, and although the dress might have been better fitted on the upper part, I still think she looked radiant. Well, it’d have been pretty hard not to what with all that gold, glitter, and sequins, but her hair had a great blonde shade, her skin was sun-kissed, and her dress was pretty hot.

emmys-red-carpet-2016-red-carpet-arrivalsclaire-danes

Aniki Rose in white was the picture perfect of a beautiful fairy. Classic. Elegant. No frills and extra fuss needed. Gorgeous. Still in white and going for simplicity was Emily Rossum. LOVED the dress. Sofia Vergara went for white as well, but not too simple. One shoulder, a bit of sequins, mermaid cut (doh) – of course she looked stunning. I will say it again… I would try something else if I were her, dress, hair wise, something new maybe for red carpet fun. Pretty and classic in white was Julie Bowen. Amazing.

A bit of white and a bit of sheer go a long way. LOVED Olivia Culpo‘s dress. It was different, and I loved it. Hair and makeup stunning. Beautiful in white were also Tracee Elis Ross (I think she had one of the most beautiful dresses on the red carpet tbh), and Michelle Dockery – I am not a massive fan of that dress, but she’s a very sophisticated girl and she can also pull off looks that are classic with a bit of fashion edge.

Emilia Clarke in nude was a statue alert. I think she went for this super clean classic minimal style, and I like it.  I guess the whole point of her look was to make a red carpet moment without too many frills.

emmys-red-carpet-2016-red-carpet-arrivals-emilia-clarke

Speaking of statue mode – Pamda Lakshmi looked amazing in that liquid sequins glittery dress, all covered up, keeping the hair and makeup minimal and classic. Loved. Heidi Klum finally nailed it! Of course she had to go show off a little bit: cut-offs, sequins, skin, but she looked great.

emmys-red-carpet-2016-red-carpet-heidi-klum-emmy-awards-2016emmys-red-carpet-2016-red-carpet-arrivals-padma-lakshmi

One of the sexiest white dresses was Aimee Teegarden. Oh my. Everything about this look is stunning. Hair and makeup so natural and on point I’m in love. Trace Lysette brought the va-va-voom to the carpet. Simple and hot! Very beautiful. Loved the dramatic hair and makeup. Pretty and sexy in white was also Niecy Nash. Really loved how she rocked that gown.

Simple, but not in white, was Julianne Hough. Oh, my, God I loved that dress. So simple, and so so lacking in the red-capret’ish cliches that I truly enjoyed it. It was something else and I loved it. Perfect colour. Perfect shoulder detail. Perfect slit.

123

Maisie Williams… I first wanted to put her on the worst list, cause I’m not really sold on the whole dress, but I changed my mind. She looks pretty, slightly dark and edgy, the dress is very cute, and young with a bit of drama. Not too bad actually.

emmys-red-carpet-2016-red-carpet-arrivals-maisie-williams

Okay, moving on to Jane Krakovski you will probably say I’ve lost it, but I kinda like that dress. Sort of like a guilty pleasure. The colour is so wild and insane, very not-me, but I’m going with a love it on this one. Judge away.

Kate Mckinnon was pretty in red. That’s it. Slightly ill fitted maybe or just a bad angle, but it was simple and classic. Tina Fey. Oh. My. Gawd. I think this is one of my fave looks from Tina. Loved it. She rocks that green and that dress beautifully. The hair was amazing and the green earrings I think were just the perfect touch.

Kirsten Dunst! Shut the front door. Perfect Hollywood glamour. She is so sexy, beautiful, refined, elegant, and glamorous I’ve lost it. The dress is so amazing with the sheer details and the simple cut and the low low low cleavage. Love the hair. Everything about this look is gorgeous.

Julia Louis Dreyfus was so effortlessly beautiful in that black sheer nude dress I really think this is one of my fave looks for her. Loved the hair. In fact I think hair for everybody was the definition of relaxed and natural and they all nailed it.

Laverne Cox. LOVED. But that’s like no surprise there, she always nails it. Kristen Bell. Sigh. Sigh. Sigh. I’m not a big dress or romantic looks kinda gal but THIS: my heart skipped a beat, and I fell hard. I think the colour and the print is amazing on her, and I love the fact that her hair is this natural wavy bob like she just took it out of a ponytail and decided to rock it loosely. LOVE LOVE LOVE.

And then 2 ladies brought the ultimate glamour and made such a beautiful fashion red carpet statement: Viola Davis in that FAB pink-fucsia dress. I LOVED it. And Sarah Paulson in the bejewelled green gown. LOVED it! Perfect low cut, long sleeves and the pure definition of glamour. The short hair that clashed with the glam and elegance of this gown made it al even better. I also loved Angela Basset. Oh my. Stu-nning. Sophie Turner – I am so in love with her new look. And this dress she’s wearing at the Emmys is so gorgeous, a perfect fit for her new style and her age: it’s effortless, pretty, sexy. Loved it.

Worst Dressed – Emmys 2016 Red Carpet

Shall we begin with Stacy London? I’ve literally cried my heart out, and for the life of me I don’t understand what happened. Did she lose a bet? Is there a joke I missed? What. The. Fuck has happened. I am very sad right now.

emmys-red-carpet-2016-red-carpetstacy-london

If you think Stacy was bad, wait till you see Anna Chlumsky. Jesus Fucking Christ. What? She just woke up and decided to wear a massive tent? And what’s with the bloody shoes. I don’t know man, maybe this is a costume or something. Or is there really a joke we missed?

emmys-red-carpet-2016-red-carpet-anna-chlumsky-emmy-awards-2016

And then there is Gaby Hoffman. OH MY GOD. Good God. Okay Gaby, I get it you’re too fucking good for red carpets and to lower yourself for red carpet fashion and a red carpet dress. Yay! You win. You got us. Good for you.

emmys-red-carpet-2016-red-carpet-gabby-hoffman

On the not that bad as the above dressed are a few ladies who – if you ask me – kinda missed it last night fashion wise. Not too tragic, but hey… we’ve got a list to fill here.

Amy Poehler. I did not like. I loved the 70s vibe and the fabric, I even liked the colour on her but I just felt it was a bit too frumpy or too much of a dress. And then on the too-much front Emily Ratajkovski wore a cupcake midnight blue dress. Okay the dress was stunning, but I really cannot get over that upper part. It ruined it. The color was brilliant, but the dress… I don’t think so.

emmys-red-carpet-2016-red-carpet-amy-poehler-cm-91816emmys-red-carpet-2016-red-carpetemily-rata-cm-91816

Cupcake alert in the case of Regina King. I mean the colour was fab, but the dress was too ruffled without any ruffles.

emmys-red-carpet-2016-red-carpet-regina-king-emmy-awards-2016

And Laura Carmichael: you couldn’t decide between a bad dress and an even worst one, so you wore them both?

emmys-red-carpet-2016-red-carpet-laura-carmichael-2016

Sarah Hyland… not my cup of tea kinda look. It’s actually pretty interesting and young and all that, but I’m not a big fan.

emmys-red-carpet-2016-red-carpet-sarah-hyland

Jessie Graff. I literally hated that dress. It’s not the worst, but its so tacky and that shade of red looks so cheap especially mixed with that leather mid-strap. Not a great look.

emmys-red-carpet-2016-red-carpet-jessie-graff-2016

America Ferrera picked a great beauty look, loved the earrings and the hair, loved the fabric of the dress, the colour even the spaghetti straps, but it was just wrong somehow from the middle down.

But as I always say what the hell do I know or care? Seriously Emmys 2016 red carpet, it was one of the best red carpets ever.

And now it’s your turn in the Facebook comments. Any faves, or least faves? Fire away.

Have an amazing week everyone! xoxo

 

At this point – 3 days post VMA’s – not too many actually give a shit about the red carpet best and worst dressed anymore. I mean, it was all pretty much said and done, BUT my thoughts and tongue could not be put to rest so I figured better late than never, hence today’s outta sync report.

Needless to say Beyonce was the Queen of the night, Drake and Rihanna are still having fans guess over the love thing between them, Kim K was a nice surprise (please don’t hate), so was Taylor Swift’s absence (and falling off mask eventually. My alter ego can’t stop saying ‘I told you so’ for the past month or so). Oh, and Britney’s comeback was okay I guess. Almost forgot about the night’s highlight.

Without further ado, or my useless rant here is the VMA’s 2016 Red Carpet.

Best Dressed – VMA’s 2016

I think I should also have an ‘I don’t know’ category of these red carpets, because more often than not there are way too many looks that leave a question mark above my head, and my heart goes back and forth between love it or hate it. Such was the case of Beyonce’s dress. What. In the name. Of God. Is that. Okay, the look of Bey and baby Blue together was heart melting and I loved it completely. But truth is she did wear a wtf dress, amazing from the shoulders down, horrible on the upper part. What the hell, did she decide she wanted to go as a an eagle aka John Snow in GOT? That’s a whole lotta haute couture there. I get it that it’s the VMA’s which are all about fun fashion, but this is more a costume. So I liked it with a dash of hated it, at times, if that makes any sense. She stole the night however as a true talent and voice and I bow to that. Her fashion sense and red carpet looks were never her strong game anyway.

vmas-2016-red-carpet-43vmas-2016-red-carpet-21

Moving on to tabu #2 – Kim Kardashian. I think she was a very nice surprise, and truth be told I am really liking her style more and more these days. She went for a very sexy look (no surprise there), but quite understated, borderline ‘just stepped out of the shower and  barely had time to pull myself together but here I am.’ Less hairstyle, less makeup, less frills and chills. Of course I’m guessing the ‘make-under look’ took as long as any glam make over, but the effortless vibe is there, and Kanye’s T-shirt style helped this chill-vibez-fun-fashion couple style. Loved the hair and makeup, and the dress with the minimal details. Maybe the off-the-shoulder was a bit too much for this look. Too studied if you will.

vmas-2016-red-carpet-38vmas-2016-red-carpet-9

One of my favourites of the night was Hailey Baldwin. Incredibly stunning, effortless, cool, glamorous. Her black sheer jumpsuit was beyond beautiful, with a perfect cut, and perfect tailoring of the pants, and she wore it fabulously with her hair and makeup. Perfection.

vmas-2016-red-carpet-24

Amber Rose was a winner in my heart, and I love her all the time, but this look was insane. Beautiful and powerful. LOVE her. I love her signature beauty look, and I love that she’s not afraid to experiment and have fun with fashion. She nailed it this time.

vmas-2016-red-carpet-20

Stella Maxwell looked amazing in her 2 piece ensemble. Too much? Too fun? Well she did nail the look, she is young, it all fits her like a glove – design and style wise – and it is the VMA’s not the Oscars so I say YES.

vmas-2016-red-carpet-22

Chantelle Winnie is beautiful for all she is and stands for, and I LOVE her dress and look: the colour, the slit, the upper part, I am not crazy however for that tulle fabric or whatever. Otherwise YES all the way.

vmas-2016-red-carpet-23

Of course Nicky Minaj is going to heat up the place. Bombshell alert. She looks stunning. The dress has a bit of too much going on: cuts, straps, sheer, loads of cleavage, and it looks like it’ll snap anytime, but she makes it work. She’s Nicky so I did expect a very hot look from her. It’s all very well balanced with her natural makeup and simple hair. The dark blue of the dress is a perfect touch. Very elegant and understated.

vmas-2016-red-carpet-27

I also liked the badass borderline BDSM looks like Chanel West Coast, or Rita Ora‘s matronly BDSM godmother. It was rather confusing and too much, buuuuuut, except for the shoes I don’t not like it.

vmas-2016-red-carpet-39vmas-2016-red-carpet-28

Taylor Hill stunning! Hailee Steinfeld LOVE the look. Very young and sophisticated. Perfect hair and makeup. Thank God Heidi Klum kept it simple. Good going this time. I’m not sure about Jojo… I somehow like the heavy dark look. But I sometimes feel like she’s all wrapped up in jacquard curtains or something.

vmas-2016-red-carpet-30vmas-2016-red-carpet-29vmas-2016-red-carpet-32vmas-2016-red-carpet-31

Cassie. YES. Funky, cool, quirky – I think she pulls it off. But it’s a risky look that would only work on certain people, for certain occasions. I might be wrong, BUT my first reaction to seeing her was ‘oh wow’. And I’m sticking to it.

vmas-2016-red-carpet-34

I liked Alicia Keys look, very flamenco and dramatic, but for me this lack of makeup obsession or movement she’s doing is so whatever. And yes, I did just roll my eyes. Please judge me if that’s your thing. It’s great she’s all about it, but just don’t impose your look or latest fad on the rest and proclaim it THE motherfucking solution to whatever women-issues. I salute her choice, for what it is: her choice. She looks beautiful either way.

I would have loved some red lips to that look though. #justsaying

Rihanna was great at the VMA’s – fashion wise. She always is. I LOVED her looks especially the pink one. Oh. My. Gawd. Perfection. But on stage she was out-staged by Bey. I mean with a performance mostly based on over-singing on prerecorded versions, and choreography for show’s sake… that was bound to happen. Riri’s fashion game is on point all the time. Other than that, I am not sold on her entertaining skills no more. Thank God Drake brought the spotlight back to her with that kiss dodging situation and love professing.

Worst Dressed – VMA’s 2016 

I will unleash the beast and sharp untamed tongue (not that it’s ever been caged or tamed)  and start off with Britney Spears dress. Man, oh man. 16 years later and she’s still doing that fucking red carpet pose, of an awkward 15 year old girl in the limelight. 16 years later and she’s still going for the same shoes, same dress style, same hair, same makeup. I hated the dress. I mean, it wasn’t ugly but that’s not the bloody point. It was a basic dress with an ambition for a classy edge (hence the slit and the cutout) that left me with a meh. The world waited for your comeback (not that you were ever gone) and this is THE dress of choice?

vmas-2016-red-carpet-12vmas-2016-red-carpet-36

Y’all Ariana Grande was almost swallowed by her pants! Horrendous look. The upper part was okay I guess, but the pants were wrong. Ill fitted, too big, too long, too frumpy. Too much for her petit frame. I hate her bangs. Can I also say I’m kinda over her half up do?!

vmas-2016-red-carpet-10vmas-2016-red-carpet-35

Joan Smalls. I don’t like it. Same pants problem. Is this a trend or something? I LOVE her makeup and hair, I’m a huge fan of sleeked back hair, but those pants are NO way Jose.

vmas-2016-red-carpet-25

Same problemo with Tinashe, although I kinda liked her draping, and I’m guessing this was all meant to look like this: haute couture frumpy and getting-lost-in-that-fabric. She almost sold this look for me. Almost.

vmas-2016-red-carpet-33

Naomi Campbell is stunning in anything, even in this look. But I don’t like the dress. Simple as that.
