2015 Grammy Awards

GRAMMYS_2015_RED_CARPET

What a night. There were so many spectacular red carpet moments from fashion to beauty. It goes without saying that Rihanna in Giambattista Valli Couture, was the showstopper of the evening. Racing down the red carpet moments before the show began like a giant pink frosted cupcake. I absolutely loved her whole look–simple pulled back hair, soft neutral makeup, and then the dress! Beyonce continued the neutral makeup trend looking fresh faced, and wearing her long locks less voluminous than usual. Kim Kardashian’s recently chopped hair and golden makeup looked quite stunning paired with her shimmering Jean Paul Gaultier gown. Chrissy Teigan can always be counted on for bronzed glowy skin. She looked gorgeous last night in white Emilio Pucci. Ciara brought the drama showing off her insane body in Alexander Vauthier. Her hair pulled of her face, and neutral toned makeup, drew attention to her incredible bone structure. Rita Ora’s smoky eyes stood out amongst a sea of earth tones, as did her newly cropped hair and silver sequined Prada dress.

Rita Ora for L’Officiel February 2015

Everything about Rita Ora on the cover of L’Officiel is amazing. The 70’s blonde bowl cut, the dark brows, the winged eyeliner, it is all gorgeous.

2015 Golden Globe Awards

 

The 2015 awards season is off to very good start. Last night’s red carpet was well worth watching. I based my top six standouts on overall look because as usual some celebrities had on fabulous outfits with not so fabulous hair and makeup, and vice versa. It goes without saying that Kate Hudson was the red carpet show-stopper of the evening. The Versace cut-out dress was absolutely spectacular. Her simple centre parted low bun, and neutral makeup were the finishing touch. Emma Stone barely ever misses the fashion mark. I loved her structured smoky eyes and pink lips, and the Lanvin jumpsuit was everything-fresh, modern, relaxed, and she looked effortless. Sienna Miller followed along the same vein. The Miu Miu dress combined pretty and edgy into one. The soft waved bob, along with glowy makeup, courtesy of Charlotte Tilbury was the perfect package. Allison Williams had the best hair of the night. The above the shoulder waves, and the deep side part were just stunning with her dramatic Armani Prive gown. Jessica Chastain’s classic Hollywood look was perhaps the best I’ve seen her on a red carpet. Rosamund Pike was one of the first people I saw interviewed at the arrivals and I immediately loved her Vera Wang dress, and her asymmetrical bob.

These ladies set the standard high in 2014 when they hit the red carpet impeccably put together from head to toe. Rihanna was definitely the star of the year even taking home the CFDA Fashion Icon of the Year award.

2014 British Fashion Awards

BRITISH_FASHION_AWARDS

The British Fashion Awards had a fabulous turn out last night in London. From Victoria Beckham to Cara Delevingne, Britain’s best celebrated the fashion industry in true style. A popular makeup look for the evening was the warm brown smokey eye. The Delevingne sisters, Victoria Beckham, and Naomi Campbell all infused a sienna tone to the traditional black for a modern take on the look. Olivia Palermo opted for the classic smokey look with nude lips. Scarlet lips were seen on Joan Smalls, Emma Watson and Kendall Jenner. Rihanna has been having a throwback to the 90’s lately, and continued the trend last night with a pretty taupe and caramel makeup palette.

My favourite outfits were Emma Watson’s ivory and black ensemble so it is quite appropriate that she won the  “British Style” award. As well unsurprisingly “Model of the Year” went to Cara who was also at the top of my best dressed list for the evening.

2014 American Music Awards

AMERICAN_MUSIC_AWARDS_2014

The red carpet at the American Music Awards on Sunday followed standard celebrity makeup procedure: glowy skin; tons of lashes; nude lips, with the exception of Selena Gomez; and carefully groomed eye brows. The best beauty look was Gigi Hadid who looked neutral and radiant. I’m quite obsessed with her look in general, so even though her trouser suit was not all to my liking she still wins based on that stunning face.

The amfAR gala in LA had a very good looking turn out for the event honouring Tom Ford. Rihanna  wore Tom Ford Spring 2015, along with a sleek side part and matte orange lips. Also wearing a sleek do was Gwyneth Paltrow with ruby lips, and Alessandra who wore her sleek locks with a centre part and smoky eyes. Kat Dennings take on classic Hollywood glamour with 40’s waves, looked stunning in her strapless metallic dress. Lea Michele’s chocolate smoky eye and neutral lip was the perfect pairing for her nude tone sequin gown. Cara Santana’s matte cherry lips were the show stopper of the evening. The contrast with her blush dress was absolutely stunning.

2014 Emmy Awards

Back to back awards shows required a few celebs to have a quick turn around on their red carpet looks. Gwen Stefani went from shocking pink retro to modern metallic overnight. January Jones looked classic Hollywood with red lips and winged eyeliner. Kerry Washington wore pumpkin Prada and switched up her usual perfectly coiffed locks for tousled ombré. I loved Allison Williams  peaches and cream look, it was ideal with her pastel gown and simple pulled back hair.
