Oscars 2014: Our Favorite Red Carpet Looks

March 3, 2014 at 12:30 pm , by

As last night’s star-studded pizza party, (er, Academy Awards Ceremony) brought the 2014 awards season to a close, we saw a lot of red carpet trends emerge: Embellished nude gowns, glamorous statement necklaces,’90s power hair, and subdued makeup paired with flowing hairstyles. A few celebrities really blew us away with their striking beauty looks, award-worthy poise, and impeccable head-to-toe styling. Click through for five of our favorites!

We think it’s safe to say that Lupita emerged as 2014’s awards season’s MVP, both on and off the red carpet. The Best Supporting Actress winner looked like a modern day Cinderella in this custom Prada gown in powder blue, said to be reminiscent of the starlet’s hometown, Nairobi.


The Best Looks From the 2014 Golden Globes

January 13, 2014 at 10:41 am , by

It’s that time of year again–awards season–aka the only thing that could tear us away from Downton Abbey on a Sunday night. The 2014 Golden Globes ceremony was packed with more A-listers that ever before and judging by the frenzied pace of the Twitter conversation last night, most of you were watching! Tina and Amy brought the house down, Jennifer Lawrence didn’t fall up the stairs (and she own again!), and some of our favorite women made pregnancy look downright glam–it was a big night.

As is always the case, some definite trends emerged as each celebrity took her turn in front of the cameras. Red was everywhere: on lips, on dresses, on the bottoms of heels, of course. Eye-catching, shimmering metallics were a favorite, as well. But perhaps the most popular accessory of the night was an interesting hemline. High slits, high-low styles, and even T-length styles were all over the red carpet.

Beauty-wise, bold lips, sleek, straight hair, soft, girly makeup, and sophisticated updos were the winners of the night.

In traditional award-season fashion, our web team has culled their favorite looks from the night for you to peruse. Do you agree with our picks? Which look blew you away?

Lupia wins everything! Our whole team agrees that her look stole the show. Not only is her skin radiant to an other-wordly degree, she looked exquisite in her simple, stunning Ralph Lauren gown.


Best Red Carpet Moments: Part 2 – Movies

January 15, 2010 at 10:02 am , by

Continued from yesterday…here is my favorite red carpet moments for the woman in the movie categories…

Best Actress in Drama- Movies

emily

Emily Blunt , The Young Victoria
Emily always looks beautiful on the red carpet. The eye catching blue Calvin Klein dress she wore to the Oscars in 2007 certainly stood out. I loved how she kept it minimal by not wearing a necklace. She let the dress speak for itself.

Sandra Bullock

Sandra Bullock, The Blind Side and The Proposal
Sandra’s look at last years Golden Globe awards was magnificent. I thought the pairing of a pale pink asymmetrical dress (Dior) with turquoise and gold jewelry and a matching turquoise clutch was fabulous.

Taylor Hackford and Helen Mirren

Helen Mirren, The Last Station
Always age appropriate, Dame Helen, made an excellent choice with this Christian Lacroix dress for the 2004 Oscars, the year she won for her role in The Queen.

Carey Mulligan

Carey Mulligan, An Education
With her fashion forward style choices, I can’t wait to see what Carey will be wearing on Sunday. I loved her look at the LA premiere of  An Education – a strapless, floral Lanvin dress.

gabourey

Gabourey Sidibe, Precious
A new comer to acting and red carpets, Gabourey has had an amazing year. She knows how to show off her curvy shape and the David Meister dress she wore for her film’s Cannes premiere, truly flattered her figure.

January 14, 2010 at 10:38 am , by

The Golden Globes are this Sunday and there are 18 beautiful women nominated in the Best Actress category for movies and television (Sandra and Meryl are nominated twice). In preparation, I’ve chosen my favorite red carpet moments for all the lovely ladies.

Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Comedy or Musical

Toni Collette

Toni Collette, United States of Tara
Nominated for her role as a woman with multiple personalities, Toni followed her glamorous side at last year’s Emmy’s with this red embroidered organza strapless Monique Lhuillier gown.

Courtney Cox, Cougar Town
The sexy black plunging Dior dress that Courtney wore to the 2003 Golden Globes would be perfect if she was a real cougar and not married to David Arquette.

edie

Edie Falco, Nurse Jackie
Nominated for her role as Carmela Soprano in 2007, Edie’s Randi Rahm black sheath with floral appliqué didn’t land her on the best-dressed list but I thought she looked fabulous!

Tina Fey

Tina Fey, 30 Rock
Funny lady Tina chose a flattering black David Meister dress to the Emmy awards in 2008.

Lea Michele

Lea Michele, Glee
Lea seems to opt for fun, short dresses for special events. I loved the House of Lavande cherry red dress she wore to last week’s People’s Choice Awards.
