2013 Style Verdicts: Red Carpet Moments - The Guilty

2013 Style Verdicts: Red Carpet Moments – The Guilty

2013 Style Verdicts: Red Carpet Moments - The Guilty
There were probably many stars that had a rough year when it came to their red carpet wardrobe, but instead of calling out every bad move, I decided to focus on thirteen looks that I, unfortunately, saw in the last twelve months. Some of them were bad, some were gross, some scary, and some of them...shouldn't have even been created. Let's check out the highlights, shall we?

13. JENNIFER LAWRENCE, “THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE” UK PREMIERE I can appreciate dazzling beaded embellishments being a selling point of a dress, but please tell me how someone looked at Jennifer's envy-inducing figure and decided to put her in something that's so ill-fitting. She was trapped in this satiny fabric that pulled and wrinkled in all the wrong places. The fact that it happened was bad enough, but that it happened at the world premiere of "Catching Fire" was just a downright bummer.

12. ANNE HATHAWAY, ACADEMY AWARDS It might not be the worst thing we saw on the red carpet this year, but those awkward bust point' and the apron design made it memorable enough that I can't forget it was a bad choice for Anne to accept her Oscar award in.

Review: ZOYA Zenith Holiday/Winter 2013 Collection

Review: ZOYA ‘Zenith’ Holiday/Winter 2013 Collection

Product Review

Review: ZOYA Zenith Holiday/Winter 2013 CollectionWe're quickly approaching Christmas, which means the holiday season is nearing a close and the winter blues will soon be upon us as the days are filled with bitter weather, and the holiday decorations quickly come down. I tend to try to find things to perk me up to beat the 'woe is me' vibe that hits that first day back to work after ringing in the New Year, and I think ZOYA will be a positive contributor this year. The cool team over at Zoya recently sent their "ZENITH" Holiday-Winter 2013 collection my way, and now I can officially show you how a bit of shimmer and vivid sparkle is a key to blasting those winter blues. Be prepared to fall in love with the lively shades below!
Review: OPI Mariah Carey Holiday/Winter 2013 Collection

Review: OPI x Mariah Carey Holiday/Winter 2013 Collection – Part III (Liquid Sand)

Product Review

Review: OPI Mariah Carey Holiday/Winter 2013 CollectionFor the final installment of my review of the OPI x Mariah Carey Holiday-Winter 2013 Collection, I give you the ultra-gorgeous group of liquid sands. These textured glittering polishes are definitely on-trend with the latest nail craze, and it's just an extra perk that they're so pretty. I've said it before, but OPI's Liquid Sands are some of the better textured polishes that have come out this year. I love the formula, they dry great and looks just as beautiful with a top coat. Make sure you also check out my thoughts on the CREMES & SHIMMERS (Part I) and the GLITTERS (Part II)! FYI: For the swatches below I used two coats for each and without a basecoat.

Review: OPI x Mariah Carey Holiday/Winter 2013 Collection – Part I (Cremes & Shimmers)

Product Review

Review: OPI Mariah Carey Holiday/Winter 2013 CollectionMy favorite time of year is here, and 'tis the season to be jolly---and load up on festive nail polish! Why should the decorations get all the shimmer and glitter when you have a set of nails that need some holiday cheer? Mariah Carey, who knows a thing or two about celebrating Christmas, teamed back up with OPI to create a beautiful Holiday/Winter 2013 line filled with shades and gleaming textures to make sure you take a bit of the holidays everywhere you go. The OPI crew sent me the collection to review, and after I did an elf-tastic happy dance, I got to work on swatching it--while jamming to Mariah's Christmas albums, mind you. This collection has 18 polishes (Note: Not including the Pure 18K Gold & Silver Top Coat - $30, Ulta), which proved to be too hefty to fit in one post without overwhelming you all, so I broke it into three. First up: the CREMES & SHIMMER formulas, but make sure you check out the GLITTERS and LIQUID SANDS!
'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' Press Tour Wish List: Elizabeth Banks & Jennifer Lawrence

“The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” Press Tour Wish List: Elizabeth Banks & Jennifer Lawrence

Welcome, welcome, welcome to my wish list for "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" press tour! I've been counting down the days to the release of this movie all year and have been highly anticipating all of the fashion we'll see when the stars get together to promote this month. Elizabeth Banks and Jennifer Lawrence had hit after stylish hit last year, so it goes without saying that the bar is raised this time around. I have many hopefuls that I'd like to see either lady wear, so I hope some of those odds are in my favor. Either way, it was fun to make this list and I'm excited to see what Liz and Jen have in store. Look on, read on, and enjoy!

Review: China Glaze ‘Monsters Ball’ Halloween 2013 Collection

Product Review

Review: China Glaze Monsters Ball Halloween 2013 CollectionI'm a holiday nut to the core---ask anyone who knows me. I pretty much count down until September 1st so that I can celebrate my four favorite months that involve Fashion Week (okay, so that's not an official holiday), Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. One of my favorite ways to celebrate the season is by playing around with nail art, so needless to say, I look forward to all the themed collections from some of my favorite nail brands. CHINA GLAZE literally hits the nail on the head every year for Halloween with a boo-tastic collection of colors and glitters to create some of the prettiest--erm 'creepy' looks. The folks over at CG were kind enough to send their latest "Monsters Ball" Collection my way so that I could give you the scoop on what you'll need to be wearing on your nails on All Hallows' Eve! Let's boogie...

2013 MTV Video Music Awards - WISH LIST

2013 MTV Video Music Awards – WISH LIST

The MTV Video Music Awards are one of the annual award ceremonies that I most look forward to each year, and the 2013 wait will be practically over in just a few hours. The stars will hit the red carpet in Brooklyn, New York where some of the hottest music videos will be honored with the new Moonman reinvented by KAWS. The few ladies that are included on my wish list have either already been confirmed---or I saw them included in the annual picture of the seating chart first look. What I love about the show is that you never really know what to expect someone to wear. Anything can happen at the VMAs---I mean, let's remember that this is the same show where Lady Gaga donned her infamous meat dress. Seriously, anything can happen.

Product Review

Review: OPI San Francisco Fall/Winter 2013 CollectionWe're almost done with summer!! I'm sure that will get the response of many groans, but if you're anything like me, then you're welcoming the crisp autumn season with open arms clad in a cozy cable knit sweater, of course, because--yessss fall fashion! I'm a huge fan of the "Ber" months, as I refer to September-December. I love the holidays, the clothes, and most of all--the colors! Needless to say, I was super excited about the launch of 15-polish OPI San Francisco collection for Fall/Winter 2013 and the fact that they were kind enough to send the line my way so that I could tell you all about it. Check out the colorful swatches below and be prepared to find it difficult to select a favorite.
2013 Teen Choice Awards - WISH LIST

2013 Teen Choice Awards – WISH LIST

2013 Teen Choice Awards - WISH LISTIt's time for the 2013 Teen Choice Awards, you guys! The stars will hit the Hollywood red carpet, which will most likely not be red at all, in anticipation of taking home a surfboard while donned in their coolest summertime attire. Last year we saw a few fashion wins, but I'm hoping for even more this year. It's a safe bet that some of your favorite ladies already have their outfits picked out for TCA night, but that doesn't mean we can't play the wishing game with The Fashion Court: Wish List. I love making these lists, and though the outfits I hope for don't always come true---sometimes they do. In fact, three of my picks from the 2012 Teen Choice Awards Wish List ended up being worn by the intended star at a later event (see: Ashley Greene, Nina Dobrev, and Kristen Stewart), so there's always hope that history will repeat itself. In the meantime, check out what's been fashionably on my mind below---and don't forget to watch the TCAs when they air TONIGHT, Sunday, August 11th at 8/7c on FOX. REMINDER: You can follow along with me on Twitter at @TheFashionCourt and on Facebook.com/TheFashionCourt as I will be live-tweeting and posting the TCA carpet looks. Full fashion verdicts, details, and beauty tips can be found here at TheFashionCourt.com starting as soon as the red carpet ends. I sure hope you'll come and visit!

Review: Zoya ‘Pixie Dust’ Summer 2013 Edition

Product Review

Review: Zoya Pixie Dust Summer 2013 EditionWow, summer seems to be flying by at a rapid pace and, before you know it, autumn will be arriving. However, no worries, there's still plenty left to enjoy of the season---and there's still time to get (and rock) the new Zoya Summer Pixie Dust polish collection. The cool peeps at Zoya kindly sent me the collection---along with some of the colors from the debut Pixie collection, so I could show you just how awesome they really are. The entire collection is beautiful, bright---and, of course, super sparkly! Your finger nails will reflect like diamonds under the summer sun.
