Look for Less: Emmy Awards 2014

After Sunday night’s disappointing outfits at the VMAs , we weren’t sure what to expect from the Emmy’s red carpet looks. But last night the stars brought their style A games and left us with some fashion moments to remember. Some of our favorite dresses came from Sarah Hyland, Julia Roberts, Lizzy Caplan, and Hayden Panettiere ( sporting the best accessory… the baby bump!).  With so much inspiration from one carpet ,  today we set out to help you find those looks for less! We have the designer pieces that will have you camera ready and looking like a starlet in no time!

 

Whether you have the baby glow to go with it or not, you can look stunning in a shining sequin gown just like Hayden Panettiere’s Lorena Sarbu number.

Add this Judith Leiber crystal minaudiere clutch to complete the red carpet look.

kristen-wiig

Kristin Wiig kept it simple and cool in this white silk dress from Vera Wang.  We love how she kept the look clean with minimal accessories.

Monique Lhullier

This Monique Lhullier gown has a similar slinky feel to the one the Bridesmaid star wore last night.

Just add a pair of uncomplicated t-strap pumps to keep the outfit crisp. These metallic Yves Saint Laurent sandals elevate the starlet style to the next level.

There were some red hot looks at the Emmys Monday night and we loved it! Many stars steer away from the hue because they don’t want to blend in with the carpet. However, last night many celebs, like Claire Danes and Julia Louis Dreyfus weren’t afraid to come out blazing.

Sizzle in one of these crimson designer gowns:

FASHION POLICE : VMA Edition

After assessing the red carpet looks from last night’s Video Music Awards , we have to admit that we think the celebs’ styles came up short.  Sequins, leather, studs, and  sheer everything… it has all been over done. We get it… its the Video Music Awards and we want our rockstars to have a little bit of an edge!  But some of the outfits from the red carpet were too over the top for our taste.  Don’t get us wrong though, there were a few celebrities who got the superstar style just right.  Check out our wrap up of all the best and worst looks from the award show.

 

2014-mtv-vmas-miley-cyrus-billboard-400

Last night Miley Cyrus rocked out a pair of leather high-waist pants with a matching bandeau top by Alexandre Vauthier. This look is on trend with matching crop top sets that have been in style this summer. We can’t say this is our favorite look for Miley, but she definitely looked chic and subdued ( for Miley anyway). We think this was a good pick for her, especially after last year’s Miley mayhem. ( do twerking and Robin Thicke ring a bell?)

cos-01-ariana-grande

Miley’s outfit was all leather done right, but we think Ariana Grande‘s outfit went wrong… This Moschino outfit is trying too hard to be sexy and grown up. Ariana has a fun young spirit about her and this all leather get-up is too severe. She should be wearing something more youthful and exuberant.

 

Nikki Minaj

Metallics were everywhere at the VMAs Sunday night.  Some stars wore the shining style in a sexy sophisticated way and others wore it ALL wrong. Nicki Minaj was one style star who hit the metallic nail on the head.  This snake print metallic mini from Saint Laurent is gorgeous on Minaj. We are loving her pared down style as of late… now if only she would smile!

Iggy Azalea also worked the silver metallic trend right at the show. This curve hugging gown from Atelier Versace was simply futuristic and fresh.

cos-04-wiz-kahlifa-amber-rose

Amber Rose also stepped out in a metallic number but she didn’t get it quite right. In fact, we aren’t sure if this even qualifies as an outfit. It appears as though Amber Rose just threw on a chain bra and some underwear… but we wouldn’t expect any thing less (or should we say MORE) from her. We will say it takes a confident woman to sport this look!

 

Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift and Amber Rose might share the same stylist because they both forgot to put on pants! We love Taylor’s valiant effort to try something out of her realm and to be a little sexier; however this attempt was a flop.  Ms. Swift has certainly got the legs for this look but the bottom is ill fitting. If the shorts were a little longer or if it was a different print this outfit may have had a fighting chance.  We usually love Taylor’s style but this one was just a bust.

nick jonas

Nick Jonas was one the best dressed guys at the VMAs.  He is no longer the littlest Jo Bro but an edgy rocker in this Vivienne Westwood plaid blazer and leather pants.

 

2014-mtv-vmas-riff-raff-katy-perry-billboard-400

 

We can’t say that Katy Perry was our best dressed at the awards, but we can say she has the outfit with the best sense of humor. We loved the homage to Britney and Justin’s denim ensembles circa 2001.

Thanks Katy Perry for the custom Versace VMA nostalgia!

 

 

 

Award Winning Style:Our Oscars Fashion Wrap-Up

I hate to admit this, but I have not seen most of the movies that were nominated for this year’s Oscars. However, exactly at 6:00pm, I started obsessively checking Twitter and Instagram, hoping the stars would soon start arriving. This excitement was met with absolute delight! Below are some of the office favorites, which were not easy to narrow down! Everyone pulled out their A-Game this year!

We can’t talk about fashion, without mentioning how dapper the men looked! The white jacket was a popular style this year, especially for Matthew McConaghy (so happy he won), Ryan Seacrest, and Jared Leto!

Jared Leto – I love how quickly Twitter started talking about his hair, in regards to that he wore it straight, as opposed to his “man bun” – in Saint Laurent

Image

Bradley Cooper – Even though he went with the black jacket, this Tom Ford look was perfect for him! The girls in our office agree – he was voted Best Dress for the Men!

Image

Finally, we wanted to mention Michael B. Jordan, for taking a fashion risk with those shoes and pulling it off – in a Givenchy Tuxedo and Shoes!

The Good, The Bad and The Colorful Pt. 2

With the 56th Annual Grammy’s approaching this Sunday, we know we can expect some crazy, over the top outfits. But what we also like to see is the dapper young men, dressed up in suits, reminding us why we first fell in love with them! Also, the lovely ladies, whose elegance and glamour, make us jealous!
