2014 MTV Movie Awards

The MTV Movie Awards red carpet had some fabulous style moments this past weekend. Lupita Nyong’o killed it in both the makeup and fashion categories. The bright Chanel dress and her elongated eye makeup made for a show stopping combination. Chrissy Teigen and Jessica Alba both looked pretty in fit and flare ensembles. Their wavy hair and soft neutral makeup looked so feminine. Shailene Woodley did not have the most interesting makeup. She made up for that by wearing a leather Lanvin outfit that was pretty incredible; as were her cut out open toe shoes. I did not understand Rihanna’s outfit choice. Her throwback to the 90′s makeup and hair was unusual but not terrible. I have never seen Debby Ryan on a red carpet before, but I thought she looked like a modern Bridgette Bardot. I loved the Rachel Zoe jumpsuit, loose natural looking hair and her peachy lips–very cute!

Tiffany & Co Event NYC

Jessica and Kate were completely on trend with their bright lip choices at the Tiffany event last night. While Jessica opted for magenta shade, Kate wowed with an unexpected orange pout that looked utterly gorgeous with her pale pink dress.

2014 Oscars

The Oscar red carpet did not disappoint last night. All six of these ladies were spectacular. Kate Hudson’s Versace dress was one of the best of the evening, and her overall look was very high fashion. Angelina’s smoky brown eyes accentuated with false lashes, glowing skin and nude lips was red carpet perfection. Olivia Wilde also made her eyes the focus of her makeup opting for a feline flick and nude lips which looked so gorgeous with her Valentino black and white gown. Cate Blanchett looked like the oscar winner that she is in Armani Prive. I thought her hair was lovely but I would have liked to seen a little bit more of a lip colour. Margot Robbie vamped up the evening with her new dark locks. I enjoyed her makeup a lot, those brows and the dark lip were so striking which was a good thing because the dress did nothing for her. The show stopper of the evening had to be Lupita Nyong’o. She has made one brilliant fashion choice after another at practically every event leading up to last night. Bespoke powder blue Prada, a headband, and neutral makeup–this was the icing on the cake.

2014 Grammys

There were some notable moments on the Grammy red carpet; such as Rita Ora in shimmery green Lanvin worn with smoky purple eyes. Chrissy Tiegen’s new shorter, lighter hair looked lovely with her gold dress. Taylor Swift’s Gucci gown was incredible, though I am not a fan of hers. All I really wanted to see was Beyoncé open the show! After killing her performance with Jay Z, Beyoncé dried her hair; put on a scarlet lip; a body hugging sheer Michael Costello gown, and took her front row seat to enjoy the rest of the show. Flawless.

Golden Globes 2014

The 2014 red carpet officially got underway with yesterday’s Golden Globe awards. The usual suspects were on hand in their best red carpet attire. Jennifer Lawrence wore Dior with soft smokey eyes and burgundy lips. Kerry Washington was in Balenciaga paired with smokey eyes and nude lips. Zoe Saldana’s Prabal Garung dress was fabulous; her neutral eyes and red lips completed the look. Cate Blanchett who is currently the face of Armani’s latest fragrance, looked stunning in lace Armani. Her makeup look featured lots of lashes and berry stained lips. Two newcomers really stood out as they made their Globes debut: Margot Robbie was stunning in a white Gucci dress with green jewel embellishments. Her hair was pulled back in an elegant chignon that showed off her glowy skin, groomed brows and pink lips. Of all the looks the most exciting of the evening was Lupita Nyong’o. That scarlet caped Ralph Lauren dress was amazing. Her makeup look perfectly complimented the dress with winged eye liner; a subtle amount of shimmer on the eyes; flawless skin and soft red lips.

People’s Choice Awards

As always, awards season begins with the People’s Choice Awards. My fave looks last night were Jennifer Hudson and Jessica Alba. Jennifer’s bright matte lip and bronze eyes were gorgeous. Jessica’s overall look was stunning – especially that Jason Wu dress.

Who was your favourite?

Flash Back Friday: Best Red Carpet Style 2013

These celebs ruled the red carpet in 2013. Kerry Washington was the epitome of style and class at every event she attended. Jennifer Lopez is the poster child for “age ain’t nothing but a number.” She runs style, makeup and hair circles around girls half her age without batting an eyelash. Jennifer Lawrence was named the face of Miss Dior, and you certainly don’t get that job without being on the fashion radar. Ciara has the nude lip, and smoky eye down, and her highlights are perfection. Lily Collins brows are as amazing as her red carpet style. When it comes to looking good on and off the red carpet, Nicole Richie knows exactly how that’s done.

Beyoncé

This just in…Beyoncé just dropped a new album with no warning. 14 songs with accompanying videos!!! Obviously I downloaded the whole thing on iTunes, which incidentally is the only place you can get it, and the songs are available only as an album. Just when I thought what could be better than the Mrs Carter Show? This is amazing. I can’t deal.
