Red Carpet Lovin’

Another week full of red carpet events to check out. Enjoy. Judge. ūüôā Movie openings, awards shows, gala dinners… All with a little something worth talking about.

Without further ado.

34th Annual Kennedy Center Honors in Washington, D.C.

It's hard to pull off Marchesa, its hard to pull off pink, and it's really really hard to pull off floor-length pink. That being said, Emily Blunt looked phenomenal in this Marchesa gown though, such an amazing color on her.

P.S. Mrs. Krasinski stunned in another fabulous pink gown with her adorable husband on the red carpet here.

This dress is flattering, interesting and chic. Well done SJP, well done. P.S. I love your hair!

 
American Country Awards in Las Vegas, Nevada:
 

Shawna & Keifer Thompson - Her: LOVE the dress, it's unique and flattering, and styled really well. J'dore her jewelry! Him: I have no words. Do you think they saw each other before they got to the red carpet???

Ashley Monroe (far left) looked great, her floral cocktail dress, metallic pumps and big curls were absolutely perfect for a fun, country-flavored event. Wish there was a better picture of her clutch though!

Josh Turner - While this isn't exactly your everyday look, I can't imagine anything better for the ACAs. Boots? Check. Visible belt buckle? Check. Worn jeans? Check. Show-stopping smile? Um... Check!

 
New Year’s Eve Premiere in Hollywood, California:
 

Harry Shum Jr. is my favorite of the Glee kids on the red carpet so I'm always excited to see what he's wearing. I like this sweater vest & blazer combo, its dressy enough to show that he's put forth some effort, but the jeans keep it low-key.

Michelle Pfeiffer looked stunning in purple Dolce & Gabbana, I especially like the choices for her multicolored folderover clutch and suede pumps.

I feel like all we've been seeing from the Elie Saab Fall 2011 collection are the pale dressed & gowns so I was excited to see one of the darker hues deployed on the red carpet. Hilary looks great, really well put together and classy.

 
2012 Pirelli Calendar Gala Dinner in New York City:
 

Rinko Kikuchi, Malgosia Bela, Natasha Poly, Mario Sorrenti, Isabeli Fontana, Joan Smalls, Margareth Made & Julianne Moore

Margareth Made was quite beautiful in a strapless navy column with a thigh high slit.

The night's most stunning look was definitely Joan Smalls, who looked phenomenal in a draping white gown and gold jewelry.

Valentino Virtual Museum in New York City:
 

Of all the dresses worn to the Valentino event, this would have been the one I'd have picked. I love shift dresses, I love the fun, glitzy fabric and I've been mad for those Valentino pumps ALL season.

It's incredibly hard to pull off an all white look, but leave it to fashion badass China Chow to make a fun poof dress and white strappy sandals look tres chic.

 

Izabel Goulart looked beautiful in floor-length navy Valentino. I'm glad that she wore her hair up so that you can focus on the great details of this dress: the subtle polka dots, bow and the layers of multi-patterned fabric in the skirt.

I like the demure hemline of Claire Danes's dress when combined with the outstanding color and fun details.

 
P.S. I finally got around to creating a Pinterest account. Check it out!

Milan Fashion Week Spring 2012: Part I

 
Milan is one of my favorite fashion weeks, with brands¬†running the gamut from long-standing¬†and traditional like Missoni¬†and Armani to fun and funky collections shown by Roberto Cavalli¬†and¬†Versace to the romance of Alberta Ferretti. You never quite know what you’re going to get, but you know it’ll be gorgeous.
 
So without further ado, I present Part I of the Milan shows. (Yes, I said Part I, I had trouble narrowing it down. So sue me.)

Armani's collection was shimmering and liquid, lots of sheer fabrics, plunging necklines, thick belted waists and neutral pastel shades with periodic splashes of navy and black.

The new co-heads of Gianfranco Ferre showed a dramatic collection filled with severe cuts mostly in stark black & white.

Roberto Cavalli had a spectacular show, never one to suggest his girls be wallflowers, his collection was brimming with sequins, gold, lace, sheer panels, animal prints & exposed midriffs. If you need a party dress, look no further!

 You can see this stunning runway show in all its glory here.

The Salvatore Ferragamo woman will be dramatic and bright for spring, in beautiful draping dresses with powerful, sexy cuts.

The Missoni collection was sexy and wild, a departure from some of the more sedated shows of the past. Animal prints, Latin flares and skin baring cuts all stalked down the runway this season.

Sophia? Is that you? Dolce & Gabbana channeled the Italian film goddesses of days gone by in this gorgeous, womanly show. A full 180 from the girl-meets-boy looks our favorite Italian boys show for fall.

At Marni they picked up on the sheet underskirt trend from fall, but updated the look and made it fresh with bright colors and sweet, summery silhouettes.

Bottega Veneta was bold and bright, with great cocktail frocks and fun separates. And of course, yummy handbags. YUMMY. I liked the juxtaposition of this cropped, geometric sweater with a dramatic leather pencil skirt, it was fun & unexpected.

While Alberta Ferretti showed her usual beautiful gowns and great suits, I was drawn to the almost Fall-colored safari dresses. The prints were muted but dramatic, and the dresses seemed utterly effortless as a result. Very wearable!

Ciao for now darlings, back soon with more eye candy from Milan!
