2014 ESPY’s

I adored Chrissy Teigen, Jessica Alba and Jordana Brewster’s golden, dewy skin on the ESPY red carpet last night. Dressed in nude and gold they really were the epitome of  summer style.

Cannes Film Festival 2014

One of the most glam red carpets of the year came to an end this weekend. So many stunning looks were seen at premieres and at the numerous parties. These 6 were among my faves, but especially Blake Lively, Cara Delevingne and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, because look after look was amazing from head to toe. They ruled the red carpet!

3 Cannes Red Carpet Beauty Looks


These 3 classic beauty looks were spotted on the Cannes red carpet over the past week. Blake Lively’s smoky eyes and nude lips were especially gorgeous when set against her perfectly sculpted face. Every feature on Rosie’s face is groomed flawlessly. To recreate this look use a bronze eye shadow all over the lower eyelid and through the crease. Define and brush up the brows with brow gel. Black winged liquid eyeliner will lift and frame the eyes, and a neutral pink lipstick will complete this look. Cara’s scarlet lip is the focus of her makeup, but I also love the highlight in the inner corner of the eyes. Timeless beauty looks like these work for every woman.

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!

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.
