Snag Her Style: Taylor Swift

With Taylor’s new album & recent move to NYC, she seems to be popping up all over the place…and looking more polished than ever! I recently saw an adorable, yet super simple Fall outfit that she was sporting in the streets of NY & I am dying to snag the style…

2013 CMA Fashion!

Who watched the CMA’s last night?! I worked my way down the red carpet noting some of my favorite & not-so-fave looks from 2013 Country Music Awards – check them out 🙂

Carrie Underwood
Carrie Underwood –  H U M A N – P E R F E C T I O N .  Always.
Jana Kramer
Jana Kramer. I have mixed feelings about this dress. She’s such a beautiful girl, and can really pull off anything, but this outfit feel’s so dark & winter-y. Not my favorite, but I’m sure she was at least comfortable!
Kacey Musgraves. Not sure how I'm feeling about this dress, I wish it were just a mini - I don't think that the extra sheer fabric was necessary.
Kacey Musgraves. Not sure how I’m feeling about this either, I wish it were a mini – I don’t think that the extra sheer fabric was necessary.
Miranda Lambert. Girl is bringing the color! She's definitely lost a little weight as well, she looks amazing.
Miranda Lambert. Girl is bringing the color! It looks like she definitely lost a little weight, no? I thought she looked great. Good choice, M!
Kellie Pickler.  I LOVE her in this dress. She looks so vampy & sexy. Such a flattering fit!

Taylor Swift. She looks flawless, but this is not my favorite look.
Taylor Swift. She looks flawless, but this is not my favorite. The dress ages her a bit, and I swear I thought she was rocking a mullet at first glance.
Lucy Hale. I think there's too much nude, she looks washed out, and the dress looks kind of heavy on her.
Lucy Hale. I think there’s too much nude, she looks washed out, and the dress weighs her down a bit. Excited to hear she’s coming out with a country album though!
Cassadee Pope. Fabulous fit & the straightest, shiniest hair EVER!

Jennifer Nettles. I'm seeing a trend. Refer to Carrie Underwood & Kacey Musgraves - I think that all of these dresses should have just stopped mid thigh.

Faith Hill. I don't think anyone ages as graceful as this woman! I would have loved to see some long curls on her though!

Kimberly - The Band Perry. Okay, this dress definitely looks like a curtain, but for some reason, I'm LOVING it! Not to mention, her hair and makeup looks so fresh!

Carrie Underwood's wardrobe changes. Source.
Carrie Underwood Wardrobe Changes Part 1. (1) The high waisted slacks & crop top was cute & she pulled it off. (2) I didn’t care for the pink floral gown live, but I’m liking it a bit more in pictures. (3) The red carpet dress & HMU was an overall win for me! (4)  The monologue outfit seemed so heavy & sloppy, but I can’t even rag on this woman, when you’re as classy as her & have those legs you can wear whatever you want lol. Source.

Carrie Underwood’s wardrobe changes Part  2. It’s hard for her to do wrong in my eyes, but she could have done much better. Out of the above, I liked her performance outfit & wavy locks (2)  and the metallic gown & chignon (3)  best.  Source.

I think that Kellie Pickler may have been my hands-down favorite of the night!

Best Dressed: Grammys 2013

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

Screen shot 2013-02-10 at 6.41.45 PM

…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.

Mid-blizzard

Post-blizzard. So much snow!

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?
