The 2013 Oscars are just starting & there’s so much to talk about from tonight’s red carpet, including the anticipation behind the performances from the cast of Les Miserables, as well as the tribute to the James Bond series. Some of my favorites so far include Naomi Watts‘ high fashion look from Armani Prive, Reese Witherspoon‘s classic old Hollywood Louis Vuitton cobalt gown, Zoe Saldana‘s two-tone fishtail gown by Alexis Mabille, & Sandra Bullock‘s lace-detailed Elie Saab gown.

Other notable hits include Jessica Chastain (in Giorgio Armani), Nicole Kidman (in L’Wren Scott), Jennifer Garner (in Gucci), Kerry Washington (in Miu Miu), & Charlize Theron (in Dior Haute Couture). Not to mention that I predicted Jennifer Lawrence‘s Dior Haute Couture gown as an Oscar pick in my recent post, which is nothing short of fabulous when it hit the red carpet!

Who wore your favorite looks? Which nominees are you rooting for? Are you excited to see performances by Adele, Norah Jones, & Jennifer Hudson? For more from this year’s awards season, check out more from Red Carpet Review including the Golden Globes, Grammys, BAFTAs, & SAGs! Happy Styling!

Watch This Style: Beyoncé’s Halftime Show At The Super Bowl, Featuring A Destiny’s Child Comeback!


Super Bowl Halftime Show

Beyoncé put on an… electrifying performance, to say the least, at last night’s Super Bowl halftime show, with surprise guests, her former Destiny’s Child bandmates Kelly Rowland & Michelle Williams. I had a feeling that something spectacular was going to happen & now we can relive all the leather-clad glamour in the video below. Beyoncé’s costume included an outfit by Rubin Singer & booties by Proenza Schouler.

Watch This Style: The Top 5 Most Stylish Destiny’s Child Music Videos!


Destiny's Child

One of the exciting stories from the headlines this week is that 2000’s R&B group, Destiny’s Child, is reuniting for a new single & greatest hits compilation. Even when reading the details behind the long-awaited return of the soulful trio, “Say My Name” started looping in my head.  The group had so many great songs & hits, but it was always their coordinated chic on-stage & red carpet looks that made me wanna watch their every move. Beyoncé Knowles, Kelly Rowland, & Michelle Williams were a force to be reckoned with, thanks to their stylist, Beyoncé’s mom, Tina Knowles.

Not to mention that this is waaay back when “I don’t think you’re ready / for this jelly,” was the phrase before “All the single ladies! All the single ladies!” Anyway, my top 5 most stylish picks of their music videos includes (in no particular order) “Bills, Bills, Bills,” “Say My Name,” “Bootylicious,” “Independent Women Part One,” & “Lose My Breath.” Of course, there’s plenty more style to see in “Jumpin’ Jumpin’,” ” “Cater 2 U,” “Survivor,” “Emotion,” “Soldier,” & “Girl” too.

Which are your favorite videos? Are you excited to see the trio reunite after so many years? For more fashionable music videos, check out posts featuring Beyoncé, Gwen Stefani, Jennifer Lopez, Madonna, Katy Perry, Christina Aguilera, Mariah Carey, & Alicia Keys! Happy Styling!
