Styles of the MTV Movie Awards

Admittedly…. I did not watch the MTV Movie Awards. There’s really not much you can’t just catch at the water cooler, or the next day. And, you just saved yourself roughly 7 1/2 hours. I do however love love love the young fresh fashions that are born on this particular red carpet. New trends to try, and so little time! {and oh yeah, and so little of this: $} Here are my favorites…

I adore Blake’s use of color in this ensemble by Michael Kors:

Emma Watson looks so sassy and elegant in Marchesa:

Reese is totally rocking Zac Posen:

Maybe it’s the Disney girl in me but i l-o-v-e Selena Gomez’s Giambattista Valli outfit. So summery and oh so adorable!

Brooklyn Decker totally played the part in this gold No. 21 mini dress

Forever a fan of the onesie, I think Jessica Szohr looked precious in Alice + Oilivia


The Met Gala

You may think that after all this royal hub bub, I would be tired of an overload of magnificent gowns. Well, that would be like a kid being tired of Disney World…. or like myself being tired of Disney World, it’s impossible!

The annual celebration to open the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala, is quite the fashion extravaganza. Each year there is a ‘theme’ and this year’s focused on the work of the late, great Alexander McQueen {the design house behind THE royal wedding dress}. It promised to be quite the fabulous affair, and it certainly did not disappoint. My favorites from the evening:

Ahsley Greene is gorgeous in this Donna Karan number.

Jessica Stam is complete elegance in this Tommy Hilfiger fantastic mountain of ballerina tulle. Great choice for a gala!

I love this Alexander McQueen gown on Gisele, and so perfect to wear it to an event in his honor.

I can’t get enough of this color! Brooklyn Decker is stunning in Michael Kors.

Ever since Princess Kate’s infamous navy dress, I’ve fallen in love with the color. Isla Fisher looks fabulous in this glittery Tory Burch gown.

Some may disagree, and maybe it’s the ballerina in me, but I LOVE this Marchesa multi length tulle dress worn by Miranda Kerr.

Not so sure about the little crystal nugget atop her head, but Kate Hudson is gorgeous in this champagne and sparkle Stella McCartney gown.

Red Carpet Favorites: The Academy Awards!

It’s finally here! The biggest red carpet night of the year…the Oscars! All red carpets lead to this one. It’s the night of ultimate dress up! This is my Super Bowl. I made Josh and I a fancy dinner…dessert….and settled in for the show. I loved watching talent get recognized, and enjoyed discovering films I still need to see. More importantly…here are my favorite’s in Hollywood’s biggest black tie event.

My jaw literally dropped when Reese graced the red carpet in this Armani Prive’ gown, Neil Lane jewels, and fabulous updo.

I’m not a huge fan of the shape of the gown, but I believe if you are nominated for an Oscar, it’s a safe fashion ‘win’ to wear all sparkle. Amy Adams rocked this L’Wren Scott purple number.

Hilary Swank knows how to walk a red carpet Oscar style. This feathered Gucci gown, complete with crystals, is just beyond.

Surprisingly enough, I loved Sharon Stone. Sort of “Elvira” chic, but oh so gorgeous with all the feathers atop the shoulder of this Christian Dior piece.

I can’t get enough of this ballet number by Lily et Cie 1950 Charles James Couture on Marisa Tomei

I love when an actress thinks outside the box. Cate Blanchett certainly did when she chose this amazingly detailed Givenchy Haute Couture gown

Another lady who knows how to dress for this red carpet of red carpets… Sandra Bullock in this fabulous red Vera Wang

Hailee Steinfeld was adorable and so age appropriate in this sweet, Marchesa tea length dress

I wish Mandy Moore had done something a little different with her hair and makeup to lend more color to this ensemble, but I adore the design of this Monique Lhuillier dress and the fit is simply gorgeous.

And last but certainly not least was Jennifer Lawrence in this form fitting Calvin Klein dress. Simple, understated, yet incredibly gorgeous.
