2012 MTV Movie Awards

Happy Wednesday!

Ready for some low-key and fun red carpet attire? You can always count on an MTV event to bring out the stars, and for those stars to bring out some interesting, eye-catching fashion.

Not sure how to wear a cocktail dress? Here’s an official How To. Follow it to the letter.

This is a great look for a summer show. Bright and fun!

I’m not sure if this is actually a dress or not, but I like the separates feel to the look. It’s summery and sweet, perfect for a Nickelodeon star!

Perhaps a slimmer fit would have shown off her killer figure better, but that doesn’t keep it from being a great, stand-out look. Her personal style has definitely been evolving over the last few months, exactly as it should be for her age!

Fresh, young, and perfect for the event. The mixing of colors and patterns and the zipper detailing make it a great choice. Also, love her haircut, very flattering.

Sort of space-age looking, but really cute. It’s fun and interesting, and suits her build really well.

With The Great Gatsby coming out soon I’m sure that these beautiful 20’s style dresses will continue to make the rounds. This is a great choice for her coloring, she looks beautiful.

Awards Awards Awards

No time to chat, lots to see!

12th Annual AFI Awards Luncheon:

Claire Danes looked stunning in chic white Donna Karan. The belt & pumps were a great touch of color and I like how the look is low-key and elegant rather than in your face. You can always count on Donna Karan for that!

Adorable! Such a complimentary combination of colors and fabrics on her. And great shoes!

BAFTA Los Angeles 18th annual Awards Season Tea Party:
 

Evan Rachel Wood was quite a sight in a fitted red pencil skirt and pointy-shouldered printed blouse from Roland Mouret. I love that she unbuttoned her blouse to reveal a lacy black bra. Feisty!

Charlize Theron looked prim and proper in a gorgeous Stella McCartney dress. The pop of cherry red lipstick keeps all of the yellow from being too sweet.

Octavia Spencer was a vision in white. She accessorized perfectly with a leopard clutch, thick bangle and metallic pumps. Perfect for an afternoon tea.

Felicity Jones stood out in pale Dolce & Gabbana, the ribbon shoes and neutral envelope clutch keep it from being too plain,

 
The 2012 Independent Spirit Awards:
 

White seemed to be the color de jour in the days leading up to the Golden Globes and Miss Elizabeth Olsen was another who tried it out. I love the layering of this look, the oversized boyfriend blazer over a shift dress, paired with long necklaces. And I love love love this top handle handbag. Need!

 
Cinema For Peace event benefitting J/P Haitian Relief Organization:
 

Felicity Jones was a vision in lacy, layered Valentino. Such a beautiful dress!

The 2012 Art Of Elysium Heaven Gala:

Amber Heard amped up the glamour with this Old Hollywood knockout look from Donna Karan. She wisely let the dress take centerstage and steered away from over accessorizing.

Kirstin Dunst tends to favor looks with a bit of quirk, so while the sheer black overlay on this Valentino gown might have appeared matronly on another actress, it somehow works on her. Another reason I included this look was because her makeup looks flawless, I've never seen her look better.

The white Valentino gown that Ali Larter donned was anything but boring and her earrings and clutch really stole the show. Absolutely gorgeous.

Minka Kelly was hard to miss in bright, bright Oscar de la Renta. The basic silhouette of this gown and the simple gold accessories were important since they let the extraordinary color of the fabric take front and center.

Sorry to tease, I’ll be back later today with the Golden Globes!

Looks of the Week

 
Need some pretty to start off your week? Me too.
 
Carry on!
 

I love it when celebrities wear real clothing! 🙂 Check out Kate Middleton looking adorable in Zara.

 
Want to make this dress your very own? Zara recently created an online shopping website so you can order online even if there’s no Zara in your city – Lace Tulip Dress.
 

Caroline Sieber's dress here is very pretty, but what caught my attention were her shoes! I'm loving this multi ankle strap trend, its chic and fun.

 

While I'm not 100% sold on this color for Miss Rachel, I have to admit that she looks phenomenal. Its glamorous and retro, perfect for your movie premiere.

My favorite part is definitely the back, so gorgeous!

I completely adore Olga Sherer's outfit here, it's my ideal fall look. I especially like her blazer w/ a touch of leopard print at the sleeves.

 

Amber Heard has been making quite the splash lately on the Red Carpet. I love that this menswear inspired look manages to be sexy, retro and glamorous rather than androgynous.

 

While Elizabeth Olsen's red carpet looks may be hit or miss, her street style seems to be right on. Chanel button down and Elizabeth & James (awww) pants. How adorable and comfy do those pants look?

 

Coco Rocha in Zac Posen at the Letters to Haiti US Premiere. I ADORE the details of this dress and I'm so glad that she didn't shy away from jewelry, this dramatic spiked collar is perfection!

 

Wow. Just wow. Head to toe wow.

 

Garance Dore captured this great look - I love the double-breasted red coat, the wide leg plaid pants and the gorgeous tan bag.

Looks of the Week

 
Here are some great looks from the last week to get you into the right sartorial mindset for the week…

As you've probably picked up by now, I love mod looks. And you've also probably noticed that I'm kind of girl crushing on ERW these days. What do you get when you combine the two? Fabulousness!

While I hate to feature a photograph of a woman smoking, I have to admit that I was really drawn to this photograph (taken by The Sartorialist in London). I like the combination of the crisp white shirt with the feminine blazer paired with the dramatic metallic jewelry. It's a very striking combination.

As much as I adore LBDs and funky, fun cocktail dresses, I love it when the stars pull out separates for the red carpet. I like the creativity and originality of this look, and the ring, can't forget that!

I love this look that Garance shot. The combination of the crisp white shirt dress reminiscent of summer and the kick @$$ boots for fall is very alluring.

This Look of the Day from PostGradChic on Fabsugar really caught my eye. Such a great look for fall, composed of basic separates. You really can't go wrong with pencil skirts!

I absolutely adore Kerry Washington and have always felt a kinship with her since we both favor dresses, solid colors, clutches and statement jewelry (clearly nothing else though, since she’s a gorgeous, successful actress – but I digress). And she did not disappoint at Opera’s Ralph Lauren event. WOW.

So... I want to be friends with Giovanna. If only for closet-sharing privileges. Seriously, if I had a choice of any closet in the world, I think I'd take hers.

Another look I really love but could never pull off? This one!
