WHERE & WHEN: 2013 Glamour Women of the Year Awards on June 4, 2013.
MY VERDICT: Beyoncé flaunted some leg in a glittering one of a kind Gucci long sleeve white silk georgette shift dress fully embroidered with silver sequins and black diamond crystals when she arrived for “The Sound Of Change Live” concert in London. The 31-year-old singer performed for more than 50,000 people as she celebrated Chime For Change–a global campaign that she founded alongside Gucci Creative Director Frida Giannini and actress Salma Hayek Pinault.
The campaign is geared towards improving education, health and justice for women and girls worldwide.
I liked Bey’s dress a lot, but I don’t think it was the best choice to highlight those famous curves. | continue reading..
MY VERDICT: Oh my pumpkin spice! Bradley officially had me yearning for the fall season when he hit the red carpet for “The Hangover Part III” premiere in this autumn-ready shade—and it’s not even officially summer yet! The always charming actor wore a unexpected custom pumpkin two-button notch lapel suit by Gucci that he interestingly partnered with a very pale blue button down shirt. I applaud both Brad and his stylist for taking a bold risk with this one.
It’s a tough color to pull off, but I can’t deny how refreshing it is.
There were a few issues with the pants, but wrinkling like that can occur when sitting for awhile. I think a pocket square incorporating the colors of both the suit and the shirt would have been nice, | continue reading..
MY VERDICT: Freida added a splash of spring color to the red carpet at “The Great Gatsby” premiere, held during the opening ceremony of the 2013 Cannes Film Festival. The actress and L’Oréal Ambassador wore a one-of-a-kind coral silk chiffon halter gown by Gucci with a matching coral, pink and gold fully embellished belt. Freida complimented the belt by wearing a matching pair of Gucci open toe gold “Phoebe” sandals that she showed off by gracefully angling the skirt of her gown. | continue reading..
MY VERDICT: Wow, Zendaya totally nailed it with her outfit of choice at the first annual Radio Disney Music Awards! The “Shake It Up” starlet–who’s currently electrifying the dance floor this year on “Dancing with the Stars”, arrived on the scarlet carpet wearing a fearless printed short suit from Juicy Couture. The 16-year-old donned the minty green “Palmetto” printed blazer and trouser shorts from the Spring 2013 collection, which she partnered with a sheer white blouse that featured an embellished collar. | continue reading..
MY VERDICT: Max was back on the grind for “The Host” U.S. press tour when he attended the New York City screening in a nearly head-to-toe black look. The 27-year-old handsome English actor arrived wearing a black Gucci two-button jacket and trousers, which featured a slight shine. Max, once again, kept his shirt light but passed on a tie in favor of a casual open collar, but unlike at the Hollywood premiere, this jacket seemed to fit him a bit better and that made for a nicer look overall.
Max finished with a pair of Christian Louboutin dress shoes.
“The Host” hits theaters nationwide this Friday, March 29th!
MY VERDICT: As if I couldn’t be more excited for spring weather to finally arrive and this 38 degree craziness to disappear, Selena just had to wear this adorable Oscar de la Renta outfit to the Kids’ Choice Awards! The “Spring Breakers” starlet was thinking along the same lines as Kristen Stewart and opted for comfortable, yet dressed up, shorts. Selena selected a pretty pale turquoise silk gazar peplum top with white textured cotton linen shorts from the Spring/Summer 2013 collection. A similar embellished pink ensemble was seen on the runway as well as a white version of her top.
MY VERDICT: Sometimes staying classic is simply the way to go, and that’s what Max Irons did for the Hollywood premiere of “The Host”. The English actor stepped out on the turquoise carpet wearing a two-button black Gucci suit with a pale button-down shirt and a moody blue-steel grey silk tie. I like the simplicity of this, but I wish you couldn’t see so much of his shirt and tie at the lower button opening. It might just be the pull from his hand being in his pocket, but it’s distracting.
Max gave his hair a finger-twisted style, before finishing off with a nice pair of sleek Christian Louboutin black patent shoes.
MY VERDICT: After a quick trip to the 2013 SXSW Festival in Texas to promote two movies, Olivia returned to Hollywood where she attended the red carpet premiere of “The Incredible Burt Wonderstone”. The 29-year-old actress kept it semi-casual in black and white stripes over the weekend only to spiced things up in a sexy open back Gucci black tulle netted gown fully embroidered with sequins, which is also enriched with a detailed macramé neckline and comes from the Pre-Fall 2013 collection.
I had been a fan of this dress and wanted to see it during awards season earlier this year, but sometimes things work out for the best because Olivia looks amazing in it! I’m in love with the sexy and sleek design–she simply glitters. | continue reading..
MY VERDICT: Many ladies opted for glamorous gowns at the Costume Designers Guild Awards this year, but Anne kept it short and sweet when she rocked the grey carpet in a gold metallic embellished mini dress by Gucci. The dazzling little frock featured mesmerizing crystal embroidery in a intricate cage-like design at the neck. With a dress this busy, the “Les Misérables” Oscar nominee was smart not to go overboard with accessories—however, it didn’t stop her for going full-out with a crystal t-strap sandal. While it would have been best for her to tone it down with an unembellished shoe, I can’t help but not care when all of my focus is going to that dress. Anne completed her look with a swept pixie, a metallic manicure, and cat-lined dramatic eye. | continue reading..
