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.
