It’s a fact. Sometimes celebrities go a little overboard with their wardrobe. Maybe it’s because their position in society makes them feel comfortable enough to take risks. Maybe it’s because they actually like what they are putting on and think the rest of the world can get on board. Whatever the reason, we’ve seen some major celebs in some, shall we say, QUESTIONABLE fashion choices.
“Life is too short to wear boring dresses.” – OK so the statement is actually “Life is too short to wear boring clothes” and it was stated by fashion design team Cushnie et Ochs. But we’re here to talk about dresses, and the glamorous celebrities who wear them. It’s not merely just about LBDs anymore. A great dress is the…
Remember her days of blonde hair and bubblegum pop? Of cargo pants, skateboarders, and hair in messy knots? We noticed the celebrity style evolution of Mandy Moore.
The 89th Annual Academy Awards Red Carpet Fashion: Nicole Kidman, Meryl Streep, Halle Berry, Taraji P. Henson, Emma StoneFebruary 27, 2017
Political statements and media mistakes aside, what was there to take away from this year’s Academy Awards? Many of the star power names didn’t show (OK, Natalie Portman had a good reason but where were all the big name presenters?) and many of the stars that did show up left bland impressions on the red carpet. As for The 89th Annual Academy Awards red carpet fashion, boring gowns ran the gamut, with the biggest trends being black, white, and more black.
Is New York Fashion Week dead? That’s debatable, but the celebrities are still showing up! Do they want to see the fashion? Are they getting paid to be there? Nobody knows. And you know what, nobody cares either. A fair share of A-listers (and a whole lot of B, C, and D-listers) were in the front row of major shows like Prabal Gurung, Michael Kors, and Calvin Klein at New York Fashion Week. Let’s check out the New York Fashion Week Fall ’17 front row celebrity fashion.
Black on black on black. Sounds like the easiest style to carry off, right? Maybe, it is. But if you don’t pair the right pieces in your black on black ensemble, you’ll just look like a Gothic black mess.
The 23rd Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards Red Carpet: Nicole Kidman, Emily Blunt, Kerry Washington, Michelle Williams, Emma Stone, and more!January 30, 2017
Come, let’s stop thinking of the immigration ban for just one moment and focus on the biggest fashion moments of the Screen Actors Guild Awards (SAG Awards) – on the red carpet. This is where Nicole Kidman wore parrots on her gown and Thandie Newton looked like she literally put a futuristic Westworld on her dress.
“Life really does begin at 40. Up until then you are just doing research.” – Carl G Jung. Does this apply to fashion, too? Are some of the best forty-something celebrities also the best dressers? They are, if these four fashionistas have anything to say about it! Let’s take a look at the four best dressed celebs over 40 and the four different types of looks they wear to make themselves stand out from the crowd.
74th Annual Golden Globe Awards Fashion: Emma Stone, Natalie Portman, Nicole Kidman, Reese WitherspoonJanuary 9, 2017
On the one hand, there were a ton of glam gowns at the 74th Annual Golden Globes. So much so that I actually felt that Old Hollywood was coming back into fashion. On the other hand, stars like Sophie Turner, Jessica Biel, and Nicole Kidman wore WTF dresses from big name designers like Louis Vuitton, Elie Saab, and Alexander McQueen, that it really made me wonder, “Is this really where fashion is going?”
The Pirelli Calendar 2017 stood out this year as it does every year. But beyond photographer Peter Lindbergh’s message to “have the guts to be yourself” was the fact that he conveyed this message using mainly models/celebs in their late 30s and 40s. Models like Uma Thurman and Penelope Cruz were photographed in black and white in all their bare faced glory. In 2016, some of those models from the Pirelli Calendar also stood out for their sartorial choices. Not to mention that their fashion has become better with age. Let’s check out some of these beauties and their style savvy looks of the year.
Out of a mostly monotone group of celebs at the 22nd Annual Critics Choice Awards (black and white was a big trend on the red carpet), stars like Hailee Steinfeld, Allison Williams and Viola Davis stood out because of their use of color. Then there were the fashionistas who surprised us because their fashion game was at its peak. Jessica Biel in Elie Saab looked the best she’s ever looked. And the ones who surprised because their fashion game was not. Kerry Washington is a gorgeous pregnant lady but her Elie Saab design left something to be desired.
Just as a statement necklace makes an outfit pop and a good bag can really add oomph to any ensemble, so can a shoe “make” or “break” an outfit with its subtlety, suitability, or prominent power. Let these four celebs show you how it can be done, for better or worse.
Fall is a time of transition and whether that means trying new trends or just layering (get those cardis out!), celebs have got it down pat. But this season isn’t only about leather jackets and long skirts. It’s also about boldly going where you couldn’t go in spring. That means, of course new colors, new textures, and new ways of wearing the trends of the past.
When former Balenciaga designer Nicolas Ghesquiere took the helm at Louis Vuitton, leaving Marc Jacobs to concentrate on his namesake label, I worried this new direction would mean more monogram prints and less color for the brand. I was pleasantly surprised when it actually meant brighter shades and bolder looks. Don’t get me wrong, I like what Marc Jacobs did, (remember the Spring 2012 runway?) but there was something very young about his designs that didn’t happen this time around with Ghesquiere – even with all the neon hues and superhero themes
If you’re not a tweenie fashion blogger, Instagram famous, or street style star, maybe Fashion Week isn’t for you anymore? Sadly, this may have become the case. The exclusivity of New York Fashion Week, where buyers, editors and the fashion elite congregate to see the best and brightest of clothing creations is out the window. But does that mean the celebrities have followed suit? Not exactly
