2014 Primetime Emmy Awards - WISH LISTPhoto: NBC
This year the Primetime Emmys are coming a month early, which means we won’t have to wait until September to see the biggest names on television hit the red carpet in the season’s hottest looks. Here’s a taste of some of the latest dresses from the runway that I hope to see on Emmy night this Sunday, August 25th.

I can’t wait to see what the night brings, and I hope you’ll follow along with me on Twitter (@TheFashionCourt) all night for the star-studded arrivals. I will be live-tweeting as well as posting recaps of the fashion and beauty here on TheFashionCourt.com. You can also find Emmy style on Pinterest.com/TheFashionCourt and Facebook.com/TheFashionCourt!

Note: None of these dresses are confirmed as looks the stars will be wearing at the ceremony,
they’re simply my personal “wishes” of what I’d like to see on the red carpet.

Many moonmen will be given out this weekend when the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards returns to California with a star-studded show filled with the top performers in music. While the VMAs may be all about the hottest styles in music, the red carpet will be about the winning fashion moments. For my wish list this year, I selected a group of ladies set to attend who are either nominated, presenting or performing. This is one of my favorite wish lists to do because the style possibilities are endless!

I invite you to follow me on the big night (Saturday, August 24th) on Twitter [ @TheFashionCourt ] as I ID the celebrity style all night long from red carpet start to VMA finish! Remember to check back here at TheFashionCourt.com for recaps, fashion details, and verdicts. You can also find VMA style on Pinterest.com/TheFashionCourt and Facebook.com/TheFashionCourt!

Note: None of these dresses are confirmed as looks the stars will be wearing at the ceremony,

Welcome to PART 2 of my Cannes 2014 Wish List! As I mentioned in PART 1, there were way too many celebs I included this year, and I figured breaking it up would make it easier read without a heavy image load and endless scrolling. The first half covered some of the premieres for the first week of the 67th Cannes Film Festival while this will focus on three movies debuting in the last week, including: “Maps to the Stars”, “Lost River”, and “Clouds of Sils Maria”.

You can follow along with me on Twitter [ @TheFashionCourt ] as I ID the celebrity style at Cannes for the next two weeks, and check back here at TheFashionCourt.com for all the photocall and premiere fashion recaps. | continue reading..

2014 Cannes Film Festival – WISH LIST | Part 1

2014 Cannes Film Festival – WISH LISTGet ready for one of the most glamorous red carpet events of the year! | Photo: iStock
The year must’ve flown by because it was as if I blinked and the biggest fashion festival (and film, obviously) was back again! The 67th Cannes Film Festival officially begins today, and I can’t wait to see what glamorous gowns (and swanky tuxedos) make their way down the red carpet on the French Riviera–beginning with the opening ceremony premiere of “Grace of Monaco”.

As always, there are tons of stylish celebrities who will be attending Cannes this year, which means my wish list is so big that I had to break it into two parts—and I couldn’t even include everyone! You can find the first ten celebrities included below, and PART 2 is on the way later today. See Part II here.

Review: OPI ‘Spotlight on Glitter’ Collection

Product Review

Review: OPI 'Spotlight on Glitter' Collection​In conjunction with the release of their super cool new peel-off glitter base coat ‘Glitter Off’, OPI is releasing six sparkly glitters with their new collection Spotlight On Glitter. For the hardcore polish and OPI fans, most of these seem to be re-released/re-named glitters of collection past—however, it’s a treat for those that weren’t able to grab them before, like myself.

Needless to say, I was pretty ‘jazzed’ about getting my sparkle on when OPI sent them my way for a test drive. I dare you not to get glitter obsessed after checking these out. Because I wanted to really put some ‘spotlight’ on the glitter, I applied them over base shades from the Brazil Summer 2014 Collection, which allowed for them to stand out a bit better.

In the wise words of Ke$ha: ‘…go insane. Throw some glitter, make it rain!’. | continue reading..

Review: OPI Brazil Spring/Summer 2014 Collection

Product Review

Review: OPI Brazil Spring/Summer 2014 CollectionWe’re only a few short months away from the 2014 FIFA World Cup being held in Brazil, and OPI is ready to celebrate it this summer by releasing the Spring/Summer 2014 Brazil Collection. The vibrant line is the perfect mix of bright, bold colors to earthy beach tones. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this collection, or rather get these polishes on my nails.

I think there’s the ‘perfect’ summer shade to flatter any complexion, which always ‘scores a goal’ in my polish handbook. I think OPI totally nailed it with this seasonal collection, but you can see for yourself below with my provided swatch review. | continue reading..

Review: ZOYA ‘Awaken’ Spring 2014 Collection

Product Review

Review: ZOYA 'Awaken' Spring 2014 CollectionDespite the short snow-covered days, I never realize how much I truly miss spring until I start seeing all of the pretty pastel nail polish collections begin to debut. This year ZOYA has created the “Awaken” collection, a stunning batch of glorious soft hues to celebrate the blooming season. Six new, full-coverage creams and metallic shimmer nail polish colors fill this Spring 2014 line that I’m certain you’re bound to fall in love with.

The awesome team over at Zoya headquarters sent the collection my way to try out and share with all of you–so let’s ‘hop’ to it!

Get it? Spring humor. I crack myself up. | continue reading..

Review: OPI ‘Muppets Most Wanted’ Collection

Product Review

Review: OPI 'Muppets Most Wanted' CollectionI’m excited to share the latest Limited Edition polishes from OPI with you, which are inspired by Disney’s Muppets Most Wanted!

I guess you could say I’m a bit of a aficionado when it comes to The Muppets; I grew up on the movies, the cartoons, the toys, and I may have even idolized Miss Piggy a little bit at one point or another :cough:istilldo:cough:.

What can I say? She’s the most fabulous.

I made it my mission to stock up on the entire Muppet holiday collection that OPI first did back in 2011, so it should go without saying that I’m thrilled they teamed back up to celebrate the latest Disney film starring Kemit, Miss Piggy, Gonzo, Animal, Fozzie Bear, and the rest of the fuzzy gang.

The collection is mostly focused on pink and nude tones–but there is a gorgeous deep purple, a fun duochrome, and a couple of pretty glitters in the mix. I’ll stop babbling so you can check them out. Enjoy!

Review: China Glaze Sea Goddess Spring 2014 Collection

Product Review

Review: China Glaze Sea Goddess Spring 2014 CollectionThe first day of spring is literally a week away, so I’m quite excited that I was able to check out three polishes from the China Glaze Spring 2014 “Sea Goddess” Collection. They were kind enough to share them with me so that I can share with all of you today!

I’ll be honest, while the rich pastel hued colors originally grabbed my attention, the fact that they were textured polishes made me a bit apprehensive as it’s been a definite ‘hit’ or ‘miss’ with other China Glaze textured polishes. However, these were much finer–kind of a mix between Zoya’s Pixie Dust and OPI Liquid Sand polishes, if you’re familiar with those. All three of them were very easy to apply and I pretty much got full coverage in just two coats. | continue reading..

2014 OSCARS – WISH LIST

2014 OSCARS - WISH LISTAs hectic as it may have been, it feels like award season simply flew by this year! We’re only a few days away from Oscar night, which means the countdown is almost over until we see some amazing dresses and major wins!

For my annual wish list, I decided to do something a little different. I typically don’t “predict” dresses, I simply include my red carpet wish but I thought I’d give a taste of both this time around. For most of the ladies (nominees and confirmed presenters), I gave an idea of what they *could* wear, along with my pick of what they *should* wear. Living up to that tagline! ^^ | continue reading..
