Trend spotting – This holiday season, it’s all about sequins, shimmer and shine (Work this trend into your wardrobe)
The holiday season always brings a hint of shimmer and sparkle and this year is no different. From sequin minis to metallic gowns, the red carpet is already seeing it’s fair share of this holiday trend. Stars like Jessica Alba, Taylor Swift, Sofia Vergara and Kate Hudson have all stepped out rocking their favorite shinning looks and if there is one trend that’s incredibly easy to incorporate into your current wardrobe, it’s this. Keep in mind that sequin dresses make the best party looks and with holiday and new year parties rolling around, you can find a piece that not only works for you but will no doubt make you stand out. Check out some of this year’s standout sparkling red carpet looks and hopefully, they’ll inspire you. (more…)
Red took over the carpet this past week with stars like Ashley Greene, Emma Roberts, Amy Adams and Nicole Ritchie showing up in their best interpretation of the holiday hue. Yellow also popped up this week, adding a welcome spot of sunshine. Other notable looks of the week included Jessica Biel in a fitted Roland Mouret dress, Zoe Saldana in gorgeous marigold Michael Kors and Twilight sisters, Ashley Greene and Nikki Reed in boldly cut gowns. Here’s round-up of this past week’s most stylish looks. (more…)
Despite her impending divorce, this year has been a pretty great year for Singer/Actress, Jennifer Lopez. After reviving her career with a winning turn on American Idol, endorsement deals with Fiat, L’Oreal, Gucci and Tous Jewelry as well as her musical hit On the Floor, she continued to rack up career achievements last night at The American Music Awards– picking up the award for Favorite Latin Artist.

Looks like green is the couleur du jour and we’re absolutely loving it. Since the holiday spirit is in the air and ’tis the season to shine and be seen in shocking color, it was an absolute delight to see both Gwyneth Paltrow and newly single Zoe Saldana in gorgeous green Elie Saab numbers.
Both adorned with sequins that made each of the stars pop and irresistible silhouettes created by a cinched waist, it’s hard to decide who to crown the winner in this edition of who wore it best?
While Gwyneth Paltrow showed off some major skin and some equally major neck bling, Zoe proves that sometimes, less is more. The t-shirt sleeves on her dress coupled with the column silhouette provide a great balance to the drama of the sequins. Zoe’s look is the definition of elegant simplicity with just the perfect amount of playfulness. Sorry Gwyneth but Zoe takes the crown on this one. What do you guys of both looks? Which do you prefer?
Christian Louboutin is a master when it comes to the art of shoes. His red soles are recognizable every where and have graced the feet of celebrities, royals and fashionistas alike. It’s no surprise then, that a man who’s been in his field for so long has to push the limits and challenge how far women will go for the love of fashion. On the ‘heels’ of such gravity defying creations like the Alexander McQueen Armadillo platforms (as seen on Lady Gaga, Kelis and Beyonce) as well as the Heel-less Antonio Berardi PVC boots sported by Victoria Beckham, the king of shoes has designed a pair of heels that even the bravest and style-obsessed fashion divas would think twice about.
So what’s Louboutin’s reasoning behind creating these? The French designer who views “the classical dancing ballet slipper <as> the ultimate heel” told The Sun he wanted to create “heels that <would make> dancers closer than any other women to the sky, to heaven”. Yes, these heels look like they could definitely land you in another dimension. All jokes aside however, The Swarovski crystals embellished slippers were designed to raise money for the English National Ballet and they will probably be bought as a display and not for every day wear or for any special occasions for that matter. Share your thoughts on the 8-inch Louboutins below….When it comes to heels, how high do you feel comfortable going?
Jennifer Love Hewitt seems like a sweet girl, a sweet girl who seriously loves Hervé Léger bandage style dresses and by ‘seriously loves’, we really mean ‘seriously loves’ – A LOT. Over the past two years, the actress has shown up in every version of the bandage dress created by designer Max Azria for the Hervé Léger line. If you don’t believe it, scroll down below. Needless to say it was nice to finally see her break away from the same cut and design that she’s strongly favored and doesn’t seem to want to let go of.
She attended “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1″ premiere in Los Angeles last night sporting a green dress with a corset top, slim skirt and black bow belt. The dress was definitely still form fitting and skin tight but it’s ok….baby steps Love Hewitt, baby steps.

As the holiday season approaches, the red carpet starts to see a hint of sparkle as well as colors like green, red, white and even ice blue. Who could forget Leighton Meester’s gorgeous Elie Saab number from last year. Spotted in this year’s must have look is actress, Kerry Washington in a dramatic tea-length Donna Karan frock. A great inspiration for upcoming holiday parties, this dress not only makes a statement, it retains an elegant poise while doing so. From the gorgeous whimsical skirt, which carries just the right amount of volume to the transparent stripes, this dress is like a piece of art. Kerry’s look is completed with a simple embellished envelope clutch and blush Louboutins. What do you think of Kerry’s Donna Karan frock? Are you impressed? Share your thoughts below…
From Kirsten Dunst’s sweet gingham print dress to Kristen Stewart’s bold Monique Lhuillier number and Kate Hudson’s golden Gucci look, this past week was filled with some very out of the box looks as well as the traditional party outfits. Some other drool worthy looks included Blake Lively, who delved deep into the midst of shocking color–sporting a red leather trench to a Christian Louboutin book event, Katie Holmes going for bronze and proving that relaxed elegance is achievable and Jenifer Hudson showing off her svelte figure and animal instincts in Michael Kors. Here’s a round-up of this week’s most fashionable looks…
This week’s battle of who wore it best is over a gorgeous embroidered Marchesa top. Filled with exquisite details and channeling the ballet meets high glamour, this piece is not easy to pull off. Selena Gomez stepped out at MTV’s European Music Awards sporting the Marchesa creation with a tousled do, silver peep-toes, a red box clutch and no pants, looking slightly overwhelmed.
Her version has also been modified from the original which featured more tulle on the sleeves and on the neck giving it a much more Victorian feel. Kudos to Selena for stepping out of her comfort zone but I’m giving the model the crown on this one. In addition to making the mistake of wearing this top as a dress, what we have here is an unfortunate case of the dress wearing the owner and her stylist should have known better. The top is dramatic enough and didn’t need her overwhelming waves to compete with. Her hair should have been pulled back to bring focus to the stunning cut of the top’s high neck.
I also love the contrast created by the leather pants on the model. Bringing a sleek and modern element to the look continues to play on the edginess that the top is going for while maintaining a clean balance between the top and bottom. Who do you think won this battle? Selena or the model? Share your thoughts below…
Before the “goddess” title became synonymous with Charlie Sheen’s summer antics, it actually was associated with beauty, grace and elegance. In terms of fashion, there’s a reason why the goddess style dress has endured for so many seasons. Evoking the very essence of a woman’s beauty and femininity, it doesn’t overwhelm but in fact enhances. Draped to perfection on the wearer, its simple but elegant cut is what makes it stand out. As awards season approaches, this trend will no doubt be prominent on the red carpet and stars like Jessica Biel, Freida Pinto, Emma Stone and many others have already gotten a head start on the trend. What do you think of the goddess style dress. Are you a fan? Share your thoughts below…
