It’s another fun-filled busy week in fashion, entertainment, & pop culture.

While I didn’t get a chance to see the ceremony last night, I was pleased to learn that red carpet favorites like Lea Michele in Elie Saab, Taylor Swift in Ralph Lauren, Naomi Watts in Alexander McQueen, & Julianne Hough in Tony Ward Couture didn’t disappoint when they hit the red carpet. Also, I was pleased to find out who was wearing which gown / dress & ultimately, the winners chosen by the people. Winners from the ceremony included Katy Perry (who wore a demure Valentino dress), Jennifer Lawrence (in black sheer sparkling Valentino), Jennifer Aniston (in a black leather Christian Dior frock with Tom Ford shoes) & Grey’s Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo (in Lanvin). For a complete list of the night’s highlights, check out this link to Entertainment Weekly!

The American Music Awards are still airing, but if you’ve missed any of the red carpet festivities, then you can check out the highs & lows here on Style Darling. Some of my favorite performers hit the stage, including Christina Aguilera & Pink, both who made stunning statements on the red carpet in lavender & bronze, respectively. Also, some noteable appearances were made by an Old Hollywood-inspired Carly Rae Jepsen in Gomez-Garcia, Nicki Minaj in neon Monique Lhuillier, & the always gorgeous Carrie Underwood in a purple gown by Abed Mahfouz.

Since there’s always so much going on in fashion & the world of the arts, I’m always on the hunt for the top headlines, but I’m only one Style Darling & can’t be glued to my computer or iPhone 24/7. I’ve created my latest category Haute Headlines to share the latest news with readers & appropriate links to get more info on what’s going on. I’m turning to my favorite magazines, news sources, blogs, & Twitter to bring the top stories to you with just one click. What stories are you following from this week? Get clicking! Happy Styling!
I’ve come to notice that when I say I’m excited about something, I usually say I’m super excited, but why would I share anything less with my readers? For those of you who haven’t caught Christina Aguilera‘s newest music video for “Your Body,” off her upcoming album Lotus, due out November 13th, I’m sharing the fun dance-heavy track in all of its Stripped & 80s-inspired flavor! Of course the Grammy winner has been making headline lately for her weight gain, but she’s embracing her curves & in my opinion, she looks damn good in this video!
The Voice coach dons leopard leggings, a mini black dress, denim & tie-dye, a “Rich Bitch” collar necklace, & layers of lingerie. Also, her hair pays tribute to those Stripped days with braids, funky & fun bursts of color á la Nicki Minaj & Katy Perry, but Christina’s also got some feminine curls, nodding to the Lucille Ball reference at the end of the video. Take a look & share with your Xtina fan friends! What do you think of Christina’s fuller figure? Are you pre-ordering her latest album? Happy Styling!
I’ve been thinking long & hard about what I would post in Watch This Style when featuring pop star / The Voice mentor, Christina Aguilera, since it would most certainly contain all the musical numbers from Burlesque. However, this post is focusing solely on Christina’s best videos from her albums. While there are so many gorgeously styled videos to choose from, my favorites include “Hurt,” “Ain’t No Other Man,” “The Voice Within,” “Fighter,” & “Not Myself Tonight.”
Perhaps sometime in the future, I’ll feature more videos from the Grammy winner, but I love that there’s a wide variety of styles ranging from Old Hollywood to gothic to futuristic. For more stylish music videos, be sure to check out Katy Perry, Madonna, & Whitney Houston! Happy Styling!
Of course this isn’t an exclusive sneak peek for the music video, but after watching Sunday night’s American Music Awards performance between Maroon 5 & Christina Aguilera of “Moves Like Jagger,” I had to click on over to YouTube. I usually just get my fix of the song on the radio b/c it’s playing all the time & I love it, but having seen the bad, bad fashion choices of Ms. Aguilera throughout 2011, I was seeking some serious style from the once ultra glamorous star.
I’d like to point out that I believe that it doesn’t matter what you look like, what your size is, or how you’re shaped. Own it & work what you’ve got in the best way you know how. Despite all my advice on what looks flattering here & there, it’s so important to go around on a day-to-day basis with confidence in your step for the body that you were born with & you’re responsible for taking care of. I find that for me, it happens in a really sexy pair of shoes & when I’m working out & eating right.
However, when you have a curvy body type like Christina does now, there are more flattering & sexy ways of showing that off without looking like you’re trying to look like a Snooki impersonater inside of a sausage dress. Am I being too harsh? Sorry Xtina!
ANYWAY… The music video is a fun throwback to the legendary rock star style of Rolling Stones frontman, Mick Jagger. During the band’s very long & successful career, he has singlehandedly changed the way we look at rock stars & their style, which can be seen in current powerhouse performers today like Pink, Lady Gaga, & Gwen Stefani. Not to mention that Adam Levine isn’t so bad on the eyes & Christina looks really good donning a mens dress shirt, black tights, & a 70s-inspired floppy hat in the video. Happy Styling!
What better way to return to the blogging circuit than with a Red Carpet Review for this year’s Golden Globe Awards? There were so many delicious trends that I couldn’t nail which one was my favorite since black & green are both my favorite colors. There were splashes of blush & rose, shimmering metallics, blues & reds, funky risk-takers, long sleeves & ruffles… where to begin.
Since Natalie Portman, winner for her role in Black Swan, was THE actress everyone has been talking about this season, let’s go with the pinks… Here she is wearing a pink strapless Viktor & Rolf rose embellished gown. Also, Lea Michele wears a pink one-shoulder Oscar de la Renta ruffled gown. Claire Danes sticks to one of her favorites with a neon Calvin Klein collection halter gown. Emma Stone went a backless peachy sherbert-hued Calvin Klein collection column dress. Julianna Margulies went with two-tones in a pink & black strapless vintage YSL strapless number. Megan Fox flaunts in a custom-designed pale pink Giorgio Armani slitted gown. Sandra Bullock shows off some sparkled in a rosy, intricately beaded Jenny Peckham design.
We still have the SAGs, Oscars, & Grammys coming up, so stay tuned for some more exciting Hollywood style! Happy Styling!
