met gala red carpet looks

If there were ever a time to BRING IT, sartorially speaking, the Met Gala red carpet was it. This is not the event to play it safe with a simple slip dress or traditional gown.

Every year, the Met Gala, hosted by the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute, has a theme and each attendant is expected to don a LEWK inspired by said theme. This year’s theme, “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology,” called for ensembles inspired by the relationship between handmade and machine-made garments.

Now that you have a little background behind the event, take a look at my favorite looks from the night. (I “judge” based on how well attendees follow the theme. Why wouldn’t you have fun with fashion, especially on a night when the wild and wacky are celebrated?!)

oscars 2016 red carpet

Awards season is over, making this my last red carpet fashion post (sadly.) But what better way to end the season than with a stellar red carpet at the Oscars?! Trust me when I say, the ladies BROUGHT IT this year. Rooney Mara in Givenchy and Saoirse Ronan in Calvin Klein were my favorite looks of the night. I picked more of my favorites below.

golden globes red carpet 2016

After Christmas decorations find their places in storage and holiday excitement dwindles, along comes awards season giving me life again. Besides mine and Chris’s birthdays in January, there’s little else to look forward to during the dreary winter months. I relish watching celebrities glide across the red carpet in glistening gowns and jewelry.

So, with awards season officially upon us, here is my first red carpet roundup of 2016: the Golden Globes. Take a look at my favorite dresses.

2014 Emmy Awards Red Carpet

I know, I know. It’s been months since I’ve written a post. But let’s get past that shall we and enjoy the gorgeous ladies of the Emmys red carpet. It’s always so hard to narrow down my favorite looks from award shows, but alas, uploading 20+ pictures to a blog post is quite an undertaking (and time suck.) So, without further ado, my 11 favorite looks from the 2014 Emmy Awards red carpet.

What were your favorite looks?

golden globes: best dressed

And so it begins: awards season. First it was the People’s Choice Awards, now the Golden Globes. I have to say, I had a hard time making my best dressed list. Just about everyone looked fabulous (although I’m still not sure how I feel about Jessica Chastain’s look.) Here are my top 10 favorites from last night.

The 2013 People’s Choice Awards is basically old news at this point but I wanted to share a few of my favorite looks from the red carpet. Taylor Swift is by far my favorite (and not just because I think she’s an awesome person.) She looked stunning in a white Ralph Lauren gown and glowing makeup.
