Lily Aldridge in Gucci | Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Viewing Party

If you’re attending a Victoria’s Secret-related event, you can expect to see glitzy dresses – super short, of course – or racy prints. While VS Angel Lily Aldridge definitely fit “short” into her esemble, she actually kept her look quite tame last night at the viewing party of the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.

The 26-year-old newlywed (she recently married Kings of Leon lead singer Caleb Followill!) hit the pink carpet with Alessandra Ambrosio and Miranda Kerr at the Samueli Theater in Costa Mesa, California wearing a berry-colored viscose jersey knot dress by Gucci.

In its original form, the dress would most likely hit Lily at the knee — but with gams as long as hers, she can’t have that. Lily hiked that bad boy up several inches to show off some thigh.

Despite some moderate cleavage, I’m glad that she focused on only one part of her body to flaunt. Her dress fit well, looked great, and seemed really comfortable. | continue reading..

Miranda Kerr in Dolce & Gabbana | Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Viewing Party

Despite the sexy persona she portrays as a VS Angel on the catwalk, Miranda Kerr has to be one of the cutest ladies ever! It might be her dimples or soft spoken voice, but I swear she drinks from the fountain of youth because most of the time she still looks like a teenager.

The new mom walked the runway for the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show after taking a year off to have her baby (she has a son named Flynn with actor Orlando Bloom).

Miranda joined her co-Angels Alessandra Ambrosio and Lily Aldridge last night on the pink carpet for the special viewing party of the VS fashion show at the at the Samueli Theater, Segerstrom Center for the Arts in Costa Mesa, California.

I love the fit of this natural-colored leopard print bustier cocktail dress by Dolce&Gabbana that she wore. It’s sexy, it’s chic, and it fits her like a glove.

She kept her accessories understated — but equally fitting for the look — by carrying a gold studded “Colette” clutch by Stella McCartney to match her black pointed toe Gianvito Rossi  pumps. | continue reading..

I don’t think I know anyone who didn’t watch at least some of the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show when it aired last night on CBS. It’s definitely one of the most major fashion events of the year!

One of my favorite VS Angels, Alessandra Ambrosio, joined her fellow Angels Miranda Kerr and Lily Aldridge last night for a special viewing party at the Samueli Theater, Segerstrom Center for the Arts in Costa Mesa, California.

Alessandra hit the appropriately hot pink carpet in plunging neck metallic long-sleeve dress from the Resort 2012 collection by Balmain. | continue reading..

Sara Evans in Mandalay | 2011 CMT Artists Of The Year

Sara Evans isn’t a fan of gowns, but a rare opportunity had her donned in one at the CMA Awards earlier this month — and she looked amazing. Last night she was caught in the middle when she arrived at the CMT Artists of the Year 2011 celebration in Nashville wearing this black calf-length pinstriped cocktail dress with floral embroidery by Mandalay.

Sara was on-hand to celebrate the five acts who were honored with being the “CMT Artists of the Year” for 2011; including Jason Aldean, Taylor Swift, Kenny Chesney, Lady Antebellum and Brad Paisley.

She’s said in the past that she “really likes to show off her legs” — which is part of her aversion towards gowns. I personally think this length not only shows off a little leg, but it also flatters her shape. She should try and stick to this silhouette once in a while.

Just like at the CMA Awards, Sara left her layered hair pin straight… and I still like it.

The night featured performances and appearances by Gavin DeGraw, Miranda Lambert, Matthew McConaughey, Lionel Richie, the All-American Rejects, Ellen DeGeneres, and many more. The event will air on December 13th at 9 p.m. ET/PT only on CMT.

Sara finished off her look with black suede platform peep toe pumps.

Vera Farmiga arrived on the blue carpet on Tuesday night at NYC’s Cipriani 42nd Street for UNICEF’s 8th Annual Snowflake Ball wearing a gown by Naeem Khan.

The “Higher Ground” actress enjoyed food, cocktails, and a performance while donned in a short sleeve embroidered top that was belted at the waist before a floor-length white skirt tiered with pleated ruffles.

It was a lovely look for her, and I’m glad she wore her hair up but loose. It added a low-maintenance vibe to an ensemble that seemed so effortlessly chic.

I would have preferred that she wore the matching short necklace from the runway, but her accessories were well-balanced with the dress. The double layered necklace picked up the topaz color of the embroidery as well as her metallic gold sandals. She finished things off with a maxi skirt-matching white clutch.

Angie Harmon was in attendance last night to help raise money for children’s rights with UNICEF during its annual Snowflake Ball held at Cipriani 42nd Street in NYC.

The actress practically glided down the blue carpet in a beaded silver and gold ombré haute couture halter gown featuring a plunging neckline and low open back from the “Feel the Water” collection by Jean Fares Couture.

I love the way this dress forms to her body; it’s like it was custom made just for her. This was by far my favorite look of the night. There was holiday glitz and red carpet glamour all rolled into one! | continue reading..

Zoe Kravitz in Chanel | 2011 UNICEF Snowflake Ball

Zoe Kravitz enjoyed cocktails and watched a performance by Natasha Bedingfield last night at Cipriani 42nd Street during the 2011 UNICEF Snowflake Ball.

The 22-year-old actress (she turns 23 on Thursday!) donned a white and black gown from the Fall/Winter 2011 collection by Chanel for the evening. I’m not much of a fan of this on her as she desperately needed the belt seen on the catwalk. The shape of the sleeves and neckline matched her hair perfectly — they’re all awkward cuts.

She’s been seen in a lot of Alexander Wang lately, so naturally I thought she’d select one of his designs for this event. I genuinely love Zoe’s style and I want to be happy to see her change up in designer wear, but I can’t say I’m thrilled with her selection this time around.

With the holiday season upon us, it was time for the 2011 UNICEF Snowflake Ball to take place!

Sarah Jessica Parker arrived on the blue carpet at Cipriani 42nd Street to support the United Nations Children’s Fund for child rights last night wearing Louis Vuitton.

SJP practically looked like a snowflake herself in this ecru silk satin sleeveless top cropped over a floral cutout white full skirt embroidered with ostrich feathers in a matching white and seafoam green.

This was an interesting dress for her, but also a very hard one to pull off. Luckily white pumps finally perfected a look for her — unlike in the past. I’m actually glad she wore these LV pumps rather than the catwalk shoes; I think these were more suitable for her style.

I’m thankful that her hair wasn’t the focal point for once — although it was a bit frizzy.

SJP accessorized with stacked bangles and drop earrings.

Even though promo for “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1″ is now over, it doesn’t mean we still can’t have fun with the cool clothes that the cast rocked while promoting the movie this month.

On November 18th fans were treated to a joint interview with the stars Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner when they sat down to chat with Ellen DeGeneres. “ELLEN” was the only talk show that had the entire main cast sit down for an interview on the press tour.

Rob stayed casual in black jeans and a dark blue/grey tee under a grey chambray buttondown shirt that he wore beneath a dark black oil Levi’s classic trucker jacket. He finished off with a pair of cool black leather perforated Converse sneakers. | continue reading..
