Tonight’s Critics Choice Awards bring us one step closer to the climax of awards season for film, but this particular ceremony includes stars of both the big screen & small screen to unite & celebrate their talent, accomplishments, & of course fashion!

#RedCarpet Review: All The Looks From The 2015 #Emmys, Including #BestDressed Stars Kerry Washington, Lady Gaga, & More!


Tonight’s Emmy awards are already causing a buzz all over the internet, especially among fashion bloggers everywhere. I have nothing but love to show for all the female nominees & presenters on the red carpet. At the end of the day, it’s all about positively celebrating today’s most talented women. However, when it comes to fashion, there’s a legacy about the red carpet & seeing high-end couture & designers’ visions come to life on some of our favorite stars.

Some of my favorites walked the red carpet in California’s sweltering heat to the beat of their own stylish drum, including Scandal star Kerry Washington (in Marc Jacobs), Modern Family star Sarah Hyland (in Zac Posen), a bold January Jones (in  Ulyana Sergeenko), Empire‘s Cookie, Taraji P. Henson (in Alexander Wang), & funny girl Amy Schumer (in Zac Posen).

Red Carpet Review: Eva Longoria Hosts the 2011 ALMA Awards!


We haven’t seen Eva Longoria in a while, but she definitely made a splash at this year’s ALMA awards, as cohost with George Lopez & honored recipient! Take a look at the images below to see her four gown transformations, as well as other nominees & her Desperate Housewives co-stars who showed up to lend their support.

The one-shoulder lilac gown accentuated the glow of Eva’s skin & smile, but I think my favorite part of the look is her gorgeous drop earrings.  Next, she accepted her award in a sexy, slinky black Moniqe Lhuillier high slit gown with over-the-top hair & jewel embellished high heels.  The details in the burgundy pleated Goldsmith & Klein gown was polished & glamorous, especially with her sleek ponytail.  For the red carpet, Eva donned a lush, coral Oscar de Renta gown with drop earrings & another height-friendly bouffant.

Comic Aubrey Plaza choose a structured LWB with sky-high black satin pumps (I want!).  Alexa Vega kept with the busy bodice trend wearing a white & silver tied gown with a gold miniaudiere & a black-tipped manicure.  Marcia Cross was regal in a navy lace sweetheart gown with a matching sash & clutch by SwarovskiFelicity Huffman posed in a chic LBD dress with a pop of orange at the bust & classic peep toe pumps. Demi Lovato looked like a princess in a blush Maria Lucia Hohan gown with a twisted bodice, showing off some skin. Glee siren Naya Rivera stood tall in a metallic column gown & nude platforms.  Jessica Alba was all-smiles in a post-baby body-conscious belted Michael Kors gown with elegant House of Lavande jewelry.

There’s so much going on right now in Hollywood & we’re on the cusp of award’s season, so stay tuned with all the latest celebrity trends by checking out Red Carpet Review! Who wore your favorite look?  Does Eva always get it right?  Happy Styling!
