Our Top 12 From the Oscars

The Oscars red carpet is like the grand ball for stars in their designer gowns. Every look that comes down is worthy of a second glance, even from behind! If you expected a sea of all-black outfits, that was not the case, as the Oscars had no #TimesUp dress code.

Instead, celebrities showed up in all colors of the rainbow. However, most stars found other ways to support the #TimesUp movement, either by wearing pins or thanking women in their acceptance speeches. Some even wore orange pins on the red carpet to raise awareness about gun safety in light of the deadly shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. There were full ballgown skirts and bright colors, but the ladies of the red carpet dressed to kill, and they slayed. It was one for the books! We wanted to share some of our favorite picks from the Oscars, take a look at these spectacular looks.

Margot Robbie >> In a white Chanel gown with beading at the bodice and delicate draping at the shoulders. Nicole Kidman >> Wearing a cobalt Armani Prive Gown with an oversized bow and mermaid train with a split hem.

Jennifer Lawrence >> Wearing a shimmer bronze Dior Gown. Mary J Blige >> Wearing a white gown with a slightly asymmetrical neckline and and a pearl-beaded corset bodice.

Gal Gadot >> Wearing a glittery black and silver sequin Givenchy Haute Couture Gown. Allison Williams >> In a Nude Armani Prive beaded cap sleeve gown with a full skirt.

Lupita Nyong’o >> Wearing a gold and black Versace chainmail gown. Sandra Bullock >> In a shimmery black and silver Louis Vuitton gown.

Haley Bennett >> Wearing black dress with feather embellishments. Molly Sims >> Wearing a beaded silver Naeem Khan gown with Renee Caovilla heels.

Leslie Bibb >> Wearing a black J Mendel gown, paired with Brian Atwood heels and carrying a Tyler Ellis bag. Zendaya >> Wearing a deep burgundy asymmetrical -sleeved Giambattista Valli Couture gown, with Brian Atwood sandals.

These are just a few of our fan favorites! What were your favorite looks on the Red Carpet this year? We would love to hear in the comments below!

The Grammy’s, Our Favorite Red Carpet Attire

While nearly every red carpet event kills us with excitement, not just excitement but fashionista excitment, the Grammy Awards hold a special and particularly excited spot in our award show season coverage and inner fashionista. In comparison to other red carpets, the Grammy’s allow a place where celebrities show up in daring gowns and test the waters when it comes to dramatic arrivals and jaw-dropping looks. Who could forget Taylor Swift’s bold tow-piece from last year or Lady Gaga’s tribute to Dave Bowie? It’s the star-studded event that leaves everyone talking, and this year’s red carpet was no exception, not just for the amazing red carpet attire we saw this year, but also for the surprises, astonishing performances, tear jerking moments on stage, and of course shocking attendees.

We thought we would share with you guys are absolutely favorite looks from the red carpet, and without a doubt the most fierce.

Bad Girl Ri Ri, possibly taking on that two-piece inspired look from Taylor last year? We love it. Not only can the beautiful star rock anything fashionable, she can do it with a bad girl attitude. Rihanna rocked the red carpet with a custom Armani gown, Chopard jewelry, and Roger Vivier clutch.

Adele, not only does Adele hook us emotionally with her elegant artistic albums, she does it also with her red carpet looks. Adele won 5 grammy’s and took on the stage with her smashing Givenchy dress.

She may not be the Queen herself, but royal blood runs in the family. Solange Knowles killed the red carpet last night with her Golden Asymmetrical Ruffle Down Gucci gown.

Jennifer Lopez is a legend, and this outfit is going down as one of our favorites from her! Showing off her killer body with cuts in all of the right places, we have never seen JLo look this fierce in her Ralph & Russo dress and darling Christian Louboutin heels.

Does it get anymore beautiful than this? Not only is Chrissy Teigen the best person in the world, she is also the sexiest in this Roberto Cavalli gown! Watch out Anastasia, Chrissy is some serious competition for those Fifty Shades of Gray. To top of her sexual dress, Chrissy accented with the one and only Jimmy Choo clutch and Coomi jewelry.

Watch out for this lady in red, Carrie Underwood killed her red carpet appearance with this bedazzled red gown, Nigaam earrings, and  Jimmy Choo heels.

Laverne Cox as always looking stunning on the red carpet with her leather a-line Bryan Hearns dress and diva smoky make up.

Lady Gaga, as we recently just saw her one-of-a-kind outfit at the Super Bowl, we once again were shocked by her fashion appearance on the red carpet. Stiletto thigh high boots, leather, studs, spikes, and chains. This dominatrix killed it on the red carpet.

Heidi Klum showing off those legs and adding some metallic for fun, perfectly combined with her Giuseppe Zanotti heels.

Demi Lovato was probably one of our most favorite appearances on the red carpet, she looked so elegant in her Julien Macdonald gown,David Yurman jewelry, and  Giuseppe Zanotti heels.

And last but very not least, Katy Perry looked absolutely stunning in her Tom Ford dress and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry.

What were your favorite looks from the Grammy’s? Let us know! and we hope you enjoyed our favorites. Until next year.

Miu Miu Autumn/Winter Ready-To-Wear 2016/17

As we are always looking forward in the Fashion World, We have been absolutely excited for Miu Miu’s 2016-17 Ready-to-Wear Collection for Autumn/Winter. However, we were not expecting it to be THIS GOOD! Take a look at Miu Miu’s astonishing look’s and a little commentary from Sarah Harris to really put this collection into perspective for you.

Screen Shot 2016-03-21 at 11.56.39 AMScreen Shot 2016-03-21 at 11.56.27 AMScreen Shot 2016-03-21 at 11.55.31 AMScreen Shot 2016-03-21 at 11.56.16 AMScreen Shot 2016-03-21 at 11.56.05 AMScreen Shot 2016-03-21 at 11.55.53 AM

If there is a show that sums up the spring/summer and autumn/winter debate – specifically, what season to show when, and exactly when it should be available to buy – then Miu Miu this afternoon was it. A collision of every season jumbled into one collection, the clothes echoed the principle that it’s always summer somewhere in the world – no bad thing. The show itself began with a series of cotton poplin shirting, light and summery with straps falling off shoulders to a soundtrack of Marvin Gaye’s I Heard It Through the Grapevine. There were white bloomers and blue shirts, tails gathered into pillowy puffballs. Variations on the denim jacket came next, some embroidered with badges, others with white guipure lace collars partnered up with denim maxi skirts. Then came the golden fox-fur coats and a series of dark damask florals, a heavyweight fabric that seemed more akin to upholstering a sofa. It was reworked in duchess-style maxi skirts – often with hemlines hoiked up with buttoned straps, and grand coats cinched with wide velvet belts. Also on the heavier side were flocked overcoats, waxed hunting jackets and wool breeches and shooting jackets. The latter popped up at Prada’s hit show in Milan last week. There were other parallels, too, such as the selection of argyle knits which, here, were styled with crisp white handkerchiefs popping out of breast pockets. After a hiatus, Katie Grand is back on board at Miu Miu and it was evident also in the casting; from Gigi Hadid to Adriana Lima, Lara Stone, Irina Shayk, and even an appearance made by Emily Ratajkowski. All served up with sweet pearl necklaces and jewelled heels with bows. This was a show with oomph. (Sarah Harris)

We will definitely be wearing our Calvin’s this fall. The perfect blend of trench’s, high, med, and low any of these bay boys will do. Oversized bell’s in neutral grays, crisp white, and nude. Who knew a trench coat would match so perfectly with a fitted pair of bell bottoms. Leathers and patterned texture for the most unique of coats we have seen yet. Calvin, you did it again.

BURBERRY’S pre-fall fashion 2016 collection could not represent their brand more flawlessly. Elegant and classy, this collection shines the Burberry identity. Long flared bells with the perfect fitted jacket make us swoon. Brush tan leathers, with accents of whites and reds make this collection one of Burberry’s best yet. Poised cuts and edgy styles are what these fall designs so enriched. Hints of gold and of course the long sleeved straight down dress have us begging for more.

So, whats your favorite collection? We can’t decide!
