2014 Emmy Fashion Favorites

Back to back red carpets?! What a fun treat to make my first week back from vacation a little more exciting [vaca post in the works]!

I posted my faves and fails of the VMA fashion on Monday & couldn’t help but whip up another blog for the swoon-worthy Emmy looks as well.

First off, my least favorite:

I'm SO SORRY Lena, I love you. You're brilliant. Your dress hurts my heart.

My most FAVORITE look of the night came from Modern Family actress, Sarah Hyland.

I couldn’t stop googling pictures of her on the red carpet! The dress, the colors, the hair, jewels, makeup, polish, everything – stunning. I’d wear this entire ensemble in a heartbeat!! Perfection!
Even if she did have a shoe meltdown. Girl after my own heart, I could see myself freaking out & doing the same. It was kind of funny -read about it here.

Another note-worthy contender for Best Dressed goes to Julia Roberts.

A) She's glowing. B) Her dress is such a healthy balance of style, class, and youth. C) Her legs are insane.

There was so much fabulousness at the Emmys, it put the VMA’s to shame!

Best Dressed: Grammys 2013

Let me start by acknowledging my little announcement last night that I was going to boycott the Grammys …

…myself, and the rest of New England have literally been snowed in for 3 days now. I cannot tell you how many movies, re-runs, and mindless television I’ve watched – talk about stir crazy/cabin fever.

However, I couldn’t help but watch the live red carpet on E! It’s not that easy to opt out of all that fashion! I had so much fun blogging about the stars’ outfits last year … and who could forget that Louboutin Manicure?!

So, without further ado – let’s get to it. Here are my picks for the best dressed at the 2013 Grammy Awards:

Shaun Robinson: (waiting for confirmation on designer) Looking fabulous in purple!

Taylor Swift: J. Mendel. Wasn’t too crazy about her hair, but I loved the dress – she always kills it in JM!

Nazanin Mandi (Miguels’ Girlfriend): (waiting for confirmation on designer) I love when the stars have a significant other who is a red carpet star in their own right! Last year at the ACM’s it was Lacey Buchanan, Jake Owens then girlfriend, this year it was Miguels lady! Cute LBD & fun hair. She makes her man look good – hot hot hot!

J.Lo: Anthony Vaccarello. The woman is rock solid & looked amazing in this black gown!

Faith Hill: J. Mendel. There’s a lot of chatter about this dress, but I think she looked great! It fits her like a glove and the beading was so fun! Side note: did anyone else see the serious rock on her pinky finger!?

Kelly Rowland: Georges Chakra. More often than not I find Kelly Rowland on my list of best dressed. This black geometric, cutout number looks incredible on her!

Rihanna: Custom Azzedine Alaia. Rihanna is usually a total hit or a total miss – I have to say, what a pleasant surprise to see her so cute & cleaned up tonight! LOVE!

Those were some of my red carpet highlights! Unfortunately, I was disappointed with Carrie Underwood & Beyonce – they both looked great, but I think that they could of done something a little more fun! Maybe next year.

I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve loved the addition of the mani-cam to these awards shows. It might be more exciting to me than the red carpet itself! My Mom is too funny – I think that being the person who gets to man the mani-cam may be on my list of dream jobs. 😉

Who were some of your favorites on the 2013 Grammy Red Carpet?

Best Dressed at the 2012 AMA’s

I tuned into the 40th Annual American Music Awards on Sunday night for obvious reasons- the fashion!

There was an overwhelming amount of golds, nudes, and sequins on the carpet this year & I loved it!

Here were my picks for the best dressed of the night:

Gotta give credit to Carly Rae Jepsen! I love this dress – she looks so simple & elegant…plus, I’m a sucker for sequins 🙂
Heidi Klum is always stunning, but she is truly radiant in gold! This dress reminds of a spiced up version of Britney’s black lace mini at the VMA’s circa 2001. Credit
One of my favorite Taylor Swift dresses to date! I adore everything about this look! Make up, hair, shoes – adore! Credit.
I think it’s impossible for me NOT to include Carrie Underwood on a Best Dressed list. She never fails to impress – I’ve said it a bajillion times – human perfection! Credit.
Jenny McCarthy is one hot mama!! I love this look! Credit.
Kelly Rowland always impresses as well! She looked fabulous in this mini! Credit.
Normally, Nicki Minaj confuses the life out of me when it comes to her red carpet appearances – I’m always trying to figure out what message she is attempting to send with her out of the ordinary looks – but at the AMA’s this year, she actually looked adorably put together. This lime green / yellow Monique Lhuillier gown was very flattering to her figure – I must say…love it :). Credit.

Who do you think had the best Red Carpet look at the AMA’s this year?
