2012 Style Verdicts: Red Carpet Moments - The Guilty

For the stars who made occasional unlawful style choices—or were simply straight up repeat offenders.

1. Ke$ha

Oh, don’t tell me you’re surprised by this. I like a few of Ke$ha’s songs, and I can appreciate that as a dance artist she likes to take it over the top—but, some things should never be worn together. Over the last twelve months, the “Die Young” singer has worn some absolutely ridiculous get ups. I liked her galaxy blazer she wore during a concert in December and her side braided hair looked cool, and then….everything else happened.

2012 Style Verdicts: Red Carpet Moments – The Innocent

2012 Style Verdicts: Red Carpet Moments - The Innocent

It’s that time again! 2012 was a big year in style, and it felt almost nearly impossible to pick the most fashionable stars—but it had to be done. There were a lot of fabulous moments, but not every star stayed consistent. For my year end countdown below, I selected 20 celebrities—male and female, that I felt stood out the most. Did any of your favorites make the cut?

20. Joseph Gordon-Levitt
There was no slow start to a year of style for Joseph, who kicked his red carpet moments off with a dapper look at the Golden Globe Awards in January. I really liked the satin trim of his tuxedo, but it was obviously the printed bow tie that stole the show. Throughout the next twelve months, JGL continued to thrive with his choices that were filled with character; from pinstripes to a totally fashion-forward chocolate velvet tartan Alexander McQueen suit for a talk show appearance. I particularly liked the way he partnered a three piece navy suit with a coordinating plaid shirt. Seriously, how could he not make this list?

Sure, most of us love Kristen Stewart‘s edgy approach to red carpet fashion–but, we also seem to have a soft spot for her casual threads. Like most ladies, Kristen prefers to stay comfortable in jeans, casual tops and sneakers–but, unlike most actresses, she takes her casual attire on the road with her for major press tours instead of limiting it to downtime runs around Hollywood.

Before “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2″ dominated the box offices last month, Kristen joined her Twi-costars for a whirlwind global tour that resulted in daily fashion jam-packed days for all of us. If you’ve been following along with The Fashion Court, you’re caught up with what she donned on the red carpet–and off, but here are a couple of key casual (bi-color) pieces Kristen wore for sit down interviews that you may have missed. Fear not, I’ll tell you what she wore—and how you can get it. | continue reading..

After a very busy week-long press tour for her new movie “On The Road” in New York City, Kristen Stewart was spotted heading back home to Los Angeles for the holidays a few days ago while wearing her awesome new Dr. Martens oxblood “Leyton” leather kicks ($95, dmusastore.com) and holding a mixed pattern jacket.

The 22-year-old made her way through the airport in her signature travel wear of skinny jeans, a vintage t-shirt, a discontinued EC Star “Nuns with Guns” hoodie, and black Oliver Peoples “O’Malley” sunglasses ($445, oliverpeoples.com).  However, this time around she had a few new additions!  Kristen wore a pair of hipster-cool Lookmatic “Morgan” unisex glasses in black/tortoise ($95, lookmatic.com) in the neckline of her shirt, while toting around an amazing black leather Barbara Bui Spring 2013 backpack, which dubs as a handbag.  | continue reading..

Christmas is almost here, but Bridgit Mendler has been jingling her way through the holidays all season long! The “Ready or Not” singer was been on a radio tour the past several weeks where she rocked a collection of festive silver and gold looks.

Much Music’s Big Jingle 2012: On December 2nd, Bridgit headed to Toronto where she performed in the annual concert wearing a cool pair of leather shorts and a sparkling blouse. She opted for a white silk “Dandy” top by Joe’s Jeans with silver sequined pockets ($220, zappos.com). I like that she added a little more glitz with a Dannijo “Hilde” gold chain collar necklace | continue reading..

Refined & Divine: Get Cate Blanchett’s Royal Look from “The Hobbit” UK Premiere!

CATE BLANCHETT looked so ethereal on the green carpet for the royal performance of ” The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” in London!  The Australian beauty wore head-to-toe Givenchy, which was complimented with a chignon and a flawless makeup palette.  Makeup artist Mary Greenwell teamed up with Cate for the evening and shared her step-by-step process for getting Cate ready with The Fashion Court!

“The gown that Cate wore at the premiere demanded nothing more than simplicity. It was striking, futuristic, but demure and showed her lovely back with a high neckline in front. Strong makeup would have taken away from the elegant that is her signature, and the naturalness of her beauty,” Mary explained.

Are you ready to get the look?

Step 1:  First things first, let’s start with your skin. Splash the face with SK-11 Facial Treatment Essence—it feels great and fresh; it wakes the skin up!  We then moisturized with SK-11 LXP Ultimate Revival Cream, which works wonderfully under makeup.  Next, I used SUQQU Frame Fix Cream Foundation in No. 10.  It’s gorgeously pale and creamy all over Cate’s flawless skin.  This is a lovely thin foundation; it works perfectly on Cate. | continue reading..

It was recently reveleaed that Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and her husband Prince William, Duke of Cambridge were expecting their first child. The royal couple, who wed in April of last year, let the news out after Kate was admitted to the hospital earlier this month for symptoms of a severe form of morning sickness. Thankfully the duchess looked healthy and in happy spirits on Monday night when she stepped out for her first appearance since the beginning of her rocky few weeks.

Kate looked radiant in a emerald green long-sleeve crepe Alexander McQueen dress when presented awards at the BBC Sports Personality of the Year 2012 ceremony. The perfectly structured deep v-neck slim silhouette featured tapered wrists, a center front slit and sweet small peplums on both sides of her hips. Not only was this dress gorgeous, the color looked amazing on her—and it was perfect for the holiday season!

She completed her look with minimal makeup, black platform suede pumps and a pair of diamond eternity drop earrings that matched her delicate pendant necklace.

What did you think of Kate’s dark green gown?

I think it’s quite possible that Rihanna saved one of her best looks of 2012 for the end of the year when she appeared on the season three finale of “The Voice” last night to perform her single “Diamonds” wearing one fierce Lanvin jumpsuit.

The 24-year-old singer dazzled on the stage in the Spring/Summer 2013  all-over Swarovski embroidered tuxedo jumpsuit with the complimenting “Dedale” large crystal necklace, bracelet and belt. | continue reading..

Get Kristen Stewart’s Retro Cat Eyes from the “On The Road” New York Premiere!

KRISTEN STEWART‘s latest sheer dress at the recent premiere for “On The Road” caught a lot of mixed reviews, but one thing that should be unanimously agreed upon is that her makeup was quite captivating.  CHANEL celebrity makeup artist Beau Nelson gave the star feisty “cat eyes” that were a throwback to the popular beauty look of the 1960s!

“For the New York City premiere, I wanted to create a sexy cat eye that was a bit 60s and modernize it with a sheer soft pink lip.” Beau explained his vision for Kristen’s beauty look, “I wanted her to look cool not but not too ‘done’.”

These two tend to push the beauty envelope a little bit more whenever they work together — especially when it comes to Kristen’s eyes!  She has been known to rock ruby shadow, intense indigo and recently went for a powerful smoky eye.

Although The Fashion Court has been the biggest fan of Beau’s violet berry smoky shimmer that he did on Kristen for the 2010 screening of “Eclipse” — this latest look might be competition!

I guess one can only hope that their body bounces back after a baby as fast as Megan’s has. The 26-year-old brunette beauty made an appearance on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” last night to promote her new movie “This Is 40″ while donned in a flawless fitting cobalt blue cocktail dress by Roland Mouret.

Megan, who gave birth to her first child less than two months ago, looked great in the body-con knee-length design from Mouret’s Resort 2013 collection. | continue reading..
