Jennifer Damiano at the Tony Awards

June 16, 2011 § Leave a comment

Jennifer Damiano, new to the fashion scene as I have never seen her in anything like this before, wore a really gorgeous yellow dress. It’s funny how this unusual color is becoming really commonplace — with Blake Lively in her all yellow Chloë ensemble a few days ago, and now this. Also those mustard Charlotte Olympia satin pumps are having a real spotlight moment that I don’t think anyone saw coming. This is a bit of a fairy tale outfit but that is perfect for the occasion. The color that has the lovely layer of sparkle over it is a very Taylor Swift type outfit and that somehow completely works for me. While I wouldn’t have selected this for the Tony awards, thinking it is a very young look, it completely won me over!

The Rest of the Met Gala…

May 4, 2011 § Leave a comment

Karlie Kloss stuns in a gorgeous gold Dior look. Gorgeous.

Isabel Lucas’ Louis Vuitton look was one of my favorites though. She dove completely into the look with her headdress and the amazing pink and red contrast. It was like a valentine the way the colors worked together.

I like Michelle Williams’ Miu Miu dress but I do find it kind of boring. She’s got such unusual taste yet she played it very safe here which is surprising and a bit disappointing.

While the thought behind Beyonce’s dress is great, but in actuality it looks a bit stiff. It also definitely looks as if it were influenced by McQueen.

I don’t like Lea Michele’s Escada look. It’s got a weird way that it sits on her. The red is gorgeous with her skin color and it should be beautiful but it just does not fit perfectly.

Taylor Swift opted for a dress out of her normal princess zone. I don’t really like it. I wish that she had stuck with the normal, fairy tale elegance dresses. The unusual quality of this dress rubs me the wrong way on her… it just doesn’t look genuine.

Rumer Willis in Mischka again, not surprising but this dress looks way better than they usually do. This is an amazing color on her. With her pale skin and darker hair, the dark colors really bring everything out rather than the brights she generally opts for which wash her out. I love the trap and the feathers and the sequins — it’s perfect. I’m impressed and hope she continues in this vein.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley looks AMAZING. No one else seems to love this as much as I do. I think that the rose silk is so well cut. This is perfect.

Leighton Meester took a real risk and I am not the biggest fan of this dress I do think she looks stunning and am impressed with her.

Wearing prints to an event like this is a real risk. I think Emma Stone pulled it off. This pattern was all over the fall collection but nothing even vaguely in this cut. I think that the cut itself is very simple and the dress is given character pretty much by the print alone.

Monaghan ROCKS the neon pink. Of the neon pink looks tonight, I prefer this. It’s so simple, literally covers every inch of her body in such a graceful way. I love long sleeves, they are amazing.

Rosario Dawson was made to wear this. That’s a fact. This is very similar to many pieces from the fall collection.

Lily Donaldson’s Erdem’s look is just the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen. I just adore it, the lace in blue is just unusual and the way that it just drapes and is so revealing yet not slutty at all — it actually looks tasteful. How in the world doe she do that?

Milla Jovovich in Marni. Stunning.

Anna Dello Russo. My style idol. I’m going to do more on this and I’ll link back to it. I do ADR focuses on my other blog.

I’m doing this really quickly because I am so tired. Shalom Harlow in Marchesa — interesting, and gorgeous. This is similar to Taylor Swift’s, yet it is more successful. Had she worn this I would have had no complaints.

This is the best I have ever seen Kristen Stewart look. It’s really simple but it totally works.

Bar Refaeli in Reem Acra is gorgeous. The sequins, the metallics, the style… woo!

This is a great, youthful dress on Gomez.

I love this dress — when I saw it in Pre-Fall a few weeks ago I KNEW it would end up on the redcarpet somehow. I expected it on a Kirsten Stewart or Julia Stiles but this is great — beautiful.

People’s Choice Awards 2011

Ashley Tisdale in Farah Angsana (a designer I was just exposed too) looking amazing, but a little faux-tanned if you ask me


Emma Roberts in Dior. I’m not the biggest fan of this look, I think that the dress is much more intriguing in the purple shown on the runway. Although, I do adore the Brian Atwood pumps she accompanied the dress with.

Katy Perry in a bold Betsey Johnson dress. I cannot think of one other person — even Gaga — who could pull off this look. Even the runway model is overpowered by the dress. Katy was nominated for best female artist, favorite song (for California Gurls), favorite pop artist, favorite music video (Teenage Dream) and for online sensation. Katy took the award for favorite female artist!

I am no fan of Kristen Stewart, but I am a huge fan of this Reem Acra look. Kirsten kept it simple and dressed it down a bit with the simple brown belt. Kirsten was nominated in a billion categories: favorite female actress (which she won by some huge stroke of luck), favorite on screen team (which she won as well with Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner), favorite movie stars under 25 (thankfully she did not take this one too) and Twilight was nominated (and won) best film and best drama movie…

One of my personal style guru’s, Leighton Meester in an adorable Vionnet dress. Leave it to her to work a simple day dress at a red carpet event and not make it seem inappropriate. Her show, Gossip Girl, was nominated for best TV drama.

Mila Kunis, rocking the first red carpet showing of a Pre-Fall J. Mendel look.

Minka Kelly in an utterly alluring and sexy Vivienne Westwood look. She, also, paired the dress with Atwood’s “Maniac” pumps in suede.

A pregnant Natalie Portman rocked Jason Wu’s Pre-Fall collection, a look that I completely overlooked when I first saw the collection but I love on her. She finished this elegant look with a pair of Dior pumps.

The night’s host, Queen Latifah, donned three looks from Edition by Georges Chakra’s Spring 2011 collection. She looked absolutely radiant and stunning in each of these.

The ever beautiful Taylor Swift wore the most beautiful J. Mendel look. She wore Prada tie pumps and a sweet little belt with the beautiful dress (which Natalie Portman wore on the cover of January 2011′s issue of Vogue). Swift was nominated for best female artist and took the award for favorite country artist.

Virginia Williams wore a really beautiful Oday Shakar look — one that Sandra Bullock wore in black in the fall to the MTV Music Awards.

Aly Michalka in a really, really fabulous Marios Schwab dress. She accompanied the dress with a Ferragamo clutch and Jimmy Choo embellished shoes.

“Nikita” star Maggie Q in Hervé Leger’s Fall 2010 line

The Kardashians! None of these were straight off the runway, but the clan is always noteworthy. From the left, we have Kendall in a BeBe dress. Kim is wearing a Catherine Malandrino dress that she hemmed. The longer version has been worn to by many other glam celebs. Kylie’s wearing a dress by wink and the newly redheaded Khloe is wearing Alexander McQueen. Kourtney, in a really unusual dress that I love, is wearing Gert-Johan Coetzee. The ladies won the “guiltiest pleasure” TV show award for their addicting reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians.I think my favorite thing about this picture, though, is that all five girls look as if they coordinated so that this shot would look amazing. There is definitely a color scheme.
