Blake Lively Red Carpet Goddess

Watch out Lupita Nyong’o! The always fabulous Blake Lively has been killing it on the red carpet from the Met Gala to Cannes and now at the CFDA Awards.

The Gossip Girl star has always been someone to look out for on the red carpet, but ever since the new fashionista Lupita hit the red carpets the spotlight has shifted.

Now the Gossip Girl star has taken back the spotlight with flawless looks starting at the Met Gala. Not only did Blake look gorgeous in Gucci, but it doesn’t hurt to be walking the red carpet with her very handsome husband Ryan Reynolds.



From there Blake Lively made jaws drop every single time she hit the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival.

Totally Obsessed With…Nicole Richie at the CFDA’s

Nicole Richie has become not only an impeccable fashion designer, but over the years she has grown to become absolute perfection on red carpets around the world.  The CFDA’s may have been on Monday evening, but I still can’t get over how amazing she looked in her Marc Jacobs Fall 2013 gold halter gown.  She was an absolute vision and proved that her “Simple Life” days are far behind her.

Looking forward to: The Met’s “PUNK: Chaos to Couture” Exhibit

0211PUNK-blog480

May 9th can’t get here soon enough.  That’s the day when The Metropolitan Museum of Art opens it’s annual Costume Institue exhibit and this year’s theme is a unique one inspired by the punk movement in both New York and London.  Usually the exhibit shows off the amazing talents and creations of two specific designers, but this year they’re thinking out of the box and I couldn’t be more excited.

The exhibit features the works of Karl Lagerfeld, Alexander McQueen, Marc Jacobs, Jeremy Scott, Alexander Wang, and John Paul Gaultier just to name a few and they’re interpretations of punk icons such as Sid Vicious and Johnny Rotten.

The exhibit opens on May 9 and runs through August 11, so be sure to go and check it out!

Dreaming of “Paris Haute Couture” Exhibit

couture03

Probably one of the most over-used and misused terms in fashion these days is “haute couture,” which translates to “high sewing” meaning that it is made with the finest fabrics, carefully sewn by hand, and has incredible attention to detail.  With ready-to-wear pieces now costing sometimes upwards of thousands, it is easy to see where the confusion could come in.

Thankfully the Hôtel de Ville in Paris has created the exhibit, “Paris Haute Couture,” with help from sponsor Swarovski, who has been helping couture pieces dazzle since they were created to show what haute couture truly means.

The exhibit, which runs through July 6, 2013, shows the history of haute couture through video and photos as well to help viewers understand the complete process of creating the impecable garments.  And of course there are over 100 dresses, from well and lesser-known designers, to make you truly appreciate these works of art.

“A darling pink taffeta dress from Yves Saint Laurent’s short tenure at Dior is there, alongside the work of the house’s namesake and its last designer, John Galliano. And it’s interesting to compare the Chanel skirt suits—one by Coco Chanel, the other by Karl Lagerfeld—next to each other. There are plenty of gowns from lesser-known designers as well, offering a bit of surprise alongside the standards.” –Fashionista

If you’re like me and most likely won’t make it to Paris in time to see this incredible exhibit, then head over to Fashionista to see their incredible slideshow complete with videos and photos from the exhibit.  It will leave you saying J’adore haute couture!

Grammy Stars: Keep Your Body Parts Inside Your Outfits At All Times

url-15

The Grammy’s are always known to be one of the craziest nights in fashion, though awards season is typically about glamour, the Grammy’s carpet is all about exposing your inner artist and you just never know what the stars will show up in.  However, according to CBS and Grammy Executives, this year they will control what is and is not worn by music’s hottest and most scantily-clad acts.

According to an email sent out February 5th from CBS that was obtained by Deadline.com, those running the show want to see every one covered up, meaning there will be no over-exposing of body parts.

“Please be sure that buttocks and female breasts are adequately covered. Thong type costumes are problematic. Please avoid exposing bare fleshy under curves of the buttocks and buttock crack. Bare sides or under curvature of the breasts is also problematic. Please avoid sheer see-through clothing that could  possibly expose female breast nipples. Please be sure the genital region is adequately covered so that there is no visible “puffy” bare skin exposure.” – Deadline

As crazy and obscene as their ensembles may be, it just happens to be one our favorite reasons to watch the Grammy’s.  So, if the celebs are really going to adhere to these wardrobe rules (which I’m almost positive they will not), then it only seems fitting to remember some of our favorite over-the-top and rule breaking Grammy outfits, right?

Check out the most memorable outfits below and let us know which you think was the most over the top by leaving a comment! Continue reading

First Family Continues to Stay Fashionable on Inauguration Day

Obama inauguration

Yesterday was an important day in American history as President Barack Obama was sworn in for the 2nd time on none of other than MLK Day.  While all eyes were on him as he took his oath and strolled back to the White House during the parade, my eyes were of course on Michelle, Sasha, and Malia to see what sense of style they were going to bring to Inauguration Day.  Luckily, they did not disappoint!

Staying true to their tradition of only wearing American designers, Mrs. Obama looked stunning in a navy-silk checked Thom Browne coat and dress that were inspired by men’s ties.  She added her own flare to the ensemble by adding a J. Crew embellished belt, Reed Krakoff boots, and a Cathy Waterman necklace.  When she went inside for the Inauguration Luncheon, she paired her Thom Browne dress with a Reed Krakoff navy cardigan that she had worn for the private Oath just the day before.  Seems to me like she’s taking tips from Duchess Kate on recycling pieces, and I love it!

As for the always impeccably dressed first daughters, Sasha is showing just how grown up she is with her fashion choices.  Sticking with one of her favorites, J. Crew, the eldest First Daughter chose a magenta coat and violet tights from the brand along with a sophisticated three-quarters sleeved navy blue dress. Continue reading
