The 2015 Golden Globes is upon us & already the show is an extravaganza in entertainment & movie madness. However, it’s the red carpet that has the fashion world buzzing, including some major trends in pops of color like red, cobalt, & yellow, as well as luxe metallics, plenty of cleavage from A-listers, pretty pastels, & dramatic ballgowns. Some of my favorite celebrities that hit the red carpet are Anna Kendrick (in Monique Lhuillier), Emma Stone (in Lanvin), Naomi Watts (in Gucci), Lupita Nyong’o (in Giambattista Valli), Jennifer Lopez (in Zuhair Murad), Dakota Johnston (in Chanel), Kate Mara (in Miu Miu), Diane Kruger (in Emilia Wickstead), & Kate Hudson (in Versace).

Other noteables are the always glamorous Reese Witherspoon (in Calvin Klein Collection), Jessica Chastain (in Atelier Versace), Kate Beckinsale (in Elie Saab), Allison Williams (in Armani Prive), Zosia Mamet (in Andrew Gn), Gina Rodriguez (in Badgley Mischka), & Amy Adams (in Versace). Who was your favorite on the red carpet? Which looks are you talking about the most?

Luxury Look-Alikes For Less: Nude Booties As Seen On Katherine Heigl, Featuring Ann Taylor Vs. Nine West!


Recently, I saw this image of Katherine Heigl in her California-cool fall look, wearing a nude turtleneck sweater, skinny jeans, & a knit red scarf.  She finished off with ‘Petra’ buckle booties ($248.00) in fawn from Ann Taylor.  I instantly had to find them online, but was dismayed by the expensive price.  Of course, I do know that Ann Taylor frequently has storewide 40-50% off sales on all merchandise.

Then I remembered seeing a similarly styled bootie, the ‘Fessup’ from Nine West, which I posted about during the website’s Black Friday special. The ‘Fessup’ ($54.50) has been reduced even more from $109.00 & has the same chic feel in a neutral hue with a side zipper.

Of course, both are equally as fashionable & the buckle detail is especially nice, however when there’s a chance for a bargain, the luxury look-alike items always win!

Red Carpet Review: 2011 American Music Awards With Jennifer Lopez, Taylor Swift, Nicki Minaj, & More!


Last night’s American Music Awards were full of fabulous performances, the celebration of music, & of course fashion!  There was plenty of plunging necklines, slits, & glamour to be found on stage & on the red carpet.  I’ve put together the highlights of the style scene, which showed that the celebs of today aren’t afraid of showing some skin, taking a risk, or hiking up their hemlines.

Jennifer Lopez certainly stole the whole red carpet in this embroidered Zuhair Murad gown that showed off all of her best assets.  The elaborate beadwork covered up the winner in all the right places, while solidifying her red carpet Style Darling status.  Katy Perry mixed the English & Asian inspirations with the Vivienne Westwood creation, accented by her blue peep toes. Katherine Heigl returns to the spotlight in a daring Roberto Cavalli gown that showed lots of skin.  Taylor Swift looked as sweet as always in a sequin-covered gold Reem Acra gown & straight locks. During the ceremony, you might’ve seen the country crooner sitting next to sweetheart of the Biebs, Selena Gomez, who dazzled in a slinky Giorgio Armani gown & Jimmy Choo sandals.

Longer gowns came in all shapes & sizes, including Jennifer Morrison‘s ethereal Temperley London white gown with sultry gold sandals & a flirty braid.  Mary J. Blige was all-diva in an animal-inspired Roberto Cavalli one-shoulder gown.  Hillary Scott, lead singer of Lady Antebellum, was an elegant breath of fresh air in the sparkling black Rani Zakhem sweetheart dress.  Nicki Minaj turned some heads in the corseted Oscar de la Renta taffeta gown with Alexander McQueen heels.

There were plenty of gams in short dresses on the red carpet , including Heidi Klum who donned a peek-a-boo laser-cute dress by Giles.  Also, Jennifer Hudson went with silver in a jersey drape-front dress with gunmental Christian LouboutinsModern Family star Julie Bowen went with a long-sleeve metallic Manish Arora mini dress & accessorized with patent leather peep toes. Model Anna Vyalitsyna mixed her red lace Emilio Pucci dress with  Giuseppe Zanotti ankle strap platforms.

Reality stay Audrina Partridge went for an eggplant mini with lucite platforms & Kwiat diamonds.  Sarah Hyland wore an age-appropriate embellished dress by Amen.  Newlywed Vanessa Lachey was all smiles in a glittering white mini dress with nude suede platforms.  Kimberly Perry, of The Band Perry, went with a vintage-inspired lace dress by Bottega Veneta (worn previously by Emma Stone at the MTV VMAs, but still cute here) with metallic sandals.  For more red carpet looks, check out Red Carpet Review!  Happy Styling!
