Red Carpet Roundup – BEST Dressed Emmys 2015

Even though the Emmys are always a bit of a tease until true awards season kicks off after the new year, the fashion definitely is not. Our favorite TV stars didn’t mess around last night with red carpet glamour, beauty and wit. While we won’t talk about our worst dressed picks, we’ll surely fantasize over the fashionistas below that KILLED it on the carpet.

The biggest statement of the night was the queen of chic, Kerry Washington, who attained her mixed metallic, mesh beaded number less than 72 hours after it hit the runway during New York Fashion Week at the Marc Jacobs show (props to her stylist). Next is Sarah Hyland who can do no wrong season after season. Last night she wore an off-the-shoulder Zac Posen gown that hugged her body perfectly. With a fresh cut the Modern Family Star wins class act of the night stunning everyone in sight with her timeless beauty and adorable body.

No meat, no problem and minimal makeup for Lady Gaga who came out on the carpet in a Brandon Maxwell one shoulder gown. Showing just enough skin to stay edgy, Gaga showed off her true natural beauty after all those years of shocking the carpet with over the top costumes, makeup and accessories to make a social statement. January Jones shows us how to pull off the couture green jumpsuit (a VERY difficult thing to do) by Russian designer, Ulyana Sergeenko. In an embellished plunging halter, Game of Thrones star Lena Headey demanded that carpet (as she should with her hit role) in Zuhair Murad. She looks comfortable, fashion forward and effortless. Other favorites of the night were Sarah Paulson in Prabal Gurung who brought the entire package, Ariel Winter in Romona Kevez, Emma Roberts in Jenny Packham and Aubrey Plaza in a sexy Alexadre Vauthier number.

Tommy Hilfiger – NYFW SS16

What do you get when the ultimate American prepster spends way too much time island hopping around the Caribbean? An insane good collection full of hip hugger striped pants, floral maxis and colorful crocheted bikinis.

Just as we thought we were over summer Fridays, pool parties and Instagram vacations, Hilfiger hit us hard with a relapse, taking us back to summer vacation mode at his Spring/Summer 2016 NYFW show late Monday morning. He even brought the boardwalk-turned-runway, tiki shack, sand and splash along with a live reggae band that had us feelin’ right.

Hilfiger turned his classic American staples – the tennis skirt, bucket hat and varsity jacket, into an island dream with easy breezy fabrics and playful prints. Rainbow halters, wide denim culottes and striped shift dresses gave the collection a 1970s, Jamaican beach bum vibe. Crocheted bucket bags, platform espadrille sandals and fringe necklaces were the accessories of choice in green, yellow, orange and red. Staying true to his navy roots throughout the line, Hilfiger stylishly captivated the Tommy girl with effervescent island magic. The hottie Hadid sisters closed the show by leading a pack of models splashing through the runway-surrounded pool while we were left dreaming in our seats about our next island getaway.

Delpozo – NYFW SS16

Delpozo took us to a fairytale this season balancing quirk with femininity through a soft color palette and structured fabrics. Set midday on the water with an accordion band playing in the background, the production told us the story of a quirky Parisian girl falling in love with a passionate Spanish poet. Slow paced and relaxed, models strolled the runway in a mix of tailored separates and fringe metallics paired with flamenco ruffles and embroidered flowers. Josep Font, the man behind it all, was inspired by “The Gypsy Ballads.” This spring is all about the “modern yet passionate woman,” he said. Tiers of tulle were toned down with cropped band tops, peter pan collars and the wrapped tie waist.

The show was also the debut of his new handbag collection. In a variety of styles and colors, the bags were structured and adorned with raffia and glitter – a new twist on a classic accessory. The full line will be available in January.

Stylish Perspectives

I had the opportunity to help style the fashion pages for Better Homes & Gardens’ July & August fashion pages. For a two page fashion story (2 outfits total), we called in almost one hundred sunglasses. Fashion editors love their options! (& I love to play with them ;)  The accessories are usually the easy part since they are easy to ship and small enough to openly display. Which stylish perspective do you prefer?stylish persepctives

Red Carpet Roundup: OSCARS 2014

Any fashionista that’s a part of the #RedCarpet tweeting cult knows how important awards’ season is in the industry. The styles worn are shown year round in magazines, blogs and the news and the looks are mimicked by department stores and sold across the nation. It’s a business in it’s entirety – but a stylish and I am OBSESSED with it. I am a tweeting machine during the red carpet portion of each award show, and it’s no shock that this year’s Academy Awards ended the season with flair. It was an all around fashionable night with the Vanity Fair after party attracting great style more than ever before. I’ve rounded up the best looks of the night at both the awards & the party and I need help in choosing which event was more fashionable! Take the poll below & tell me what YOU think!
