The Met Gala 3013

I cannot tell you how much I loved the outfits this year. The theme made it so fun – Punk: Chaos to Couture. Loved it! You’ll be able to tell that I had a really hard time narrowing down the outfits to post, and especially my favorites. I had so many. Of course there were some pretty bad ones, but there were some AMAZING outfits this year. You kind of have to keep in mind the theme for some of them though, because they might seem kind of out there, but they totally fit the night. And some were great dresses, but then I didn’t like them because they were so plain! If you have a party with a theme, why not go all out for it?! After all the Met Gala is a Costume Party. It seemed like everyone who was anyone was there. I would have died to be able to go to something like this. I can’t wait to see if you agree with my picks or not! Anyway, here you go!

Jessica Alba: I had to start with someone who barely missed my best dressed because I seriously had to narrow it down. This is fabulous. It just didn’t stand out as much as some of my other favs. I wish you could see her shoes though…they were to die for.jessica alba met gala

Kristen Stewart: I almost put this in my favs too, because there was something about it that I loved because it’s really creative. Kristen Stewart met gala

Jaime King: This is really different for her and I love it.jaime king met gala

Lily Aldridge: Again, not totally with the theme, but she looks great.lily aldridge met gala

Hilary Rhoda: I kinda like the leather pants look, but I’m undecided about the top…I think it’s the length that’s throwing me off.hilary rhoda met gala

Christina+Ricci+Vivienne+Westwood+Met+Gala+2013+1

Ginnifer Goodwin: I was trying to decide if I liked this dress, but I couldn’t get past her hair and that horrible eye makeup. Then I decided that I hated the fade at the bottom too.ginnifer_goodwin_met_gala_18ogil5-18ogin4

Mary Kate Olsen: I think I would like the dress underneath, but she looks horribly old in this picture, and I think she took a fortune teller’s coat and attached her dog to it. Mary-Kate Olsen met gala

Coco Rocha: I usually love this girl, but I hate the bangs, I hate the print, I don’t know what is attached to the top of the dress, and I do not like the boots with it either. I’m sorry girl! coco rocha met gala

Jessica Biel: I don’t know what is going on here. The fit of the dress makes her look huge and I HATE those leggins. Uh Uh.

Madonna: One word – BARF. Two more: You’re old.madonna met gala

Nicki Minaj: This is like the most tame I have ever seen here…where’d you go Nicki?nicki minaj met gala

Sarah Jessica Parker: Ok…my real love, because of her daringness and her hair…OMG, LOVE HER. Are you kidding me? I die.met-gala-sarah-jessica-parker-h724sjp hair met gala

Oscar After Party Outfits

So usually I don’t really do a big post on the after-party outfits, but there were some pretty good ones for this year’s Oscars, so why not? I think most of the people who wore my favorite dresses for the show ended up wearing my favorites for the after parties also…For me my favorites were (and not necessarily in this order)…

1. Jennifer Lawrence

2. Naomi Watts

3. Amy Adams

4. Lily Collins

5. Kate Bosworth

6. Diane Krueger

7. Amanda Seyfriend

8. Nina Dobrev

I know that’s a lot, but there were so many good ones, and a lot of people who weren’t at the Oscars, but came after! Let me know who your favorites were!

Jennifer Lawrence in Calvin Klein; Ohmigosh I love this just as much as her Oscar dress. It’s fluid and gorgeous. Everything looks so good on her.oscars-afterparty-dresses-jennifer-lawrence-h724

Amy Adams in Oscar de la Renta; Wow…again…which one of her dresses do I like more? I guess when you’re nominated you get to pick from the best. Beautiful!oscars-afterparty-dresses-amy-adams-h724

Naomi Watts in Emilio Pucci; Absolutely love this too. She looked fabulous in both of her dresses tonight. Loved!oscars-afterparty-dresses-naomi-watts-h724

Anne Hathaway in YSL; I can’t decide if I like this dress better or worse than the one she wore to the show. This one doesn’t flatter her figure at all, but I like the color better. The other one was just so plain and blah. This one is just shapeless. I didn’t like her choices at all. Maybe she’s pregnant?anne-hathaway-oscars-after-parties

Selena Gomez in Versace; This isn’t really my favorite. I feel like she’s trying to look a lot older than she is. It’s a pretty dress, but I wish she would have worn something more fun and in a bright color!selenagomez

Lily Collins in Zuhair Murad; I love this! I love the two different prints and the color!lilycolins

Kate Bosworth in Giambattista Valli; Gorg! I am glad that she wore a short dress and I love her hair! One of my favs! kateb

Solange in Emilio Pucci; Love the dress! Hate the hair! It’s not bouncy enough…it looks like it’s falling over or else I would love it.solange

Natalie Portman in Dior; Simple and sweet and beautiful. She always looks perfect.natalieportman

Georgina Chapman in Marchesa; I love Marchesa…and if you can look this pretty when you’re pregnant…wow.georginachapman

Hilary Swank in Valentino; I really like this dress, but I would have picked something a little bit less heavy looking for a party. I mean it’s red and fun, and has the light material on top, but I think the train and the long sleeves makes it look a little bit heavier than I would like. It’s gorgeous though.oscars-afterparty-dresses-hillary-swank-h724

Olivia Munn in Marchesa; While I think the dress is pretty…It seems to be missing some pieces…lol (and I didn’t even show it from the side). The detailing is amazing though.2013 Vanity Fair Oscar Party Hosted By Graydon Carter - Arrivals

Kate Beckinsale in Monique Lhuillier; I love this look! So fun and not too serious. So perfect for a party!oscars-afterparty-dresses-kate-beckinsale-h724

Kourtney Kardashian in Brian Renne and Kim Kardashian in Donna Karen; honestly I don’t know how the Karsdashian’s get into anything important, but I think Kourtney is hilarious so I’ll forgive that…I do think her dress is a little bit too long though. If it was a bit shorter I would love it. Or even all the way to the floor would be better. I think that Kim’s fits better with the event. I don’t really like her white shoes. I think it would look better if they were gold. I just don’t know why she’s even there! oscars-afterparty-dresses-kardashian-sisters-h724

Miranda Kerr in Valentino; I think this dress is very different, but I like it! miranda-kerr-290

Elizabeth Banks in Alexander McQueen; Such a fun dress! I loved it! Orange is hard to pull off, but it looked beautiful. I love this material for spring. I did not really like her hair though. It was too high in the front and slicked on the sides. elizabeth-banks-290

Diane Krueger in Giambattista Valli; Ohmigosh I absolutely love this. I think it’s one of my favorites because it’s so different! It’s fun and cute, but sophisticated in a way also! I love actually love the width and sleeves.diane-kruger-290

Heidi Klum; Umm I don’t really know what to say about this, but I don’t like any of it…the dress, the cleavage, the hair…ugh. I think it makes her look chubby…and “The Body” is anything but.heidi-klum-290

Zooey Deschanel in Valentino; Usually I really like her funky style, but I didn’t like this. It looked like a sparkly sister wive.zooey-deschanel-290

Nina Dobrev in Naeem Khan; She is seriously so pretty. I swear everything looks good on her. I love this print.nina-dobrev-290

Amanda Seyfried in Givenchy; I’m in love with this dress that she performed in and then wore to the after parties! It totally stands out against her skin and I love the strappy details! amanda-seyfried-290

Britney Spears in Michael Cinco Couture; I actually like her hair brown here and the dress isn’t too bad either.britney-spears-290

Ginnifer Goodwin in Monique Lhullier; I love this whole look! Exactly what I would wear to a party!ginnifer-goodwin-290

Zoe Saldana in Givenchy; This almost reminds me of a nightgown of some sort, but I definitely like it more that the dress she wore earlier in the night. zoe-saldana-290

2012 American Music Awards

The AMA’s are always interesting, because a lot of people take risks with their ensembles. This year I had a lot that I did not like or that I wasn’t sure about. Here are my opinions below, but let me know what yours are! I’d love her hear what everyone else thought! 

Stacy Keibler in Collette Dinnigan. I think this dress is fabulous on her! It’s a tiny bit too short, but she looks great!

Jenny McCarthy looks so good. I swear she just gets in better shape. I love the style of this dress and the sequins!

Ginnifer Goodwin in Oscar de la Renta. I think she looks really cute in this dress. Her makeup is gorgeous.

Hillary Scott in a simple black dress. It flatters her figure nicely.

Heidi Klum in Alexandre Vauthier Couture. I really like this and it fits her so well, but I don’t love the poufyish sleeves, so I didn’t put her on my best dressed ;p. But she’s beautiful as always!

Kelly Rowland in Naeem Kham. I think this dress is interesting, but it’s not my favorite. I love when she wears bright colors. It’s a pretty print though, and a great shape on her.

Lucy Hale looks pretty, but the dress is a little boring. I wish the top was a tiny bit higher so that the skirt could be a little shorter and overall I think it would have been better. Or she should have had a huge statement necklace. The length of the necklace and the line of the dress just doesn’t fit.

Gwen Stefani in Balmain. This was definitely an interesting look, but for some reason I don’t hate it. I think it’s because it’s Gwen and it totally fits her style. Love the red lips!

Colbie Caillat…this dress is ok. Nothing too special for me, but I don’t hate it.

Hayden Panettierre in Giorgio Armani. This makes me sad, because she usually looks so much cuter! She kinda has roots and I don’t really like the length, but it’s ok. Thoughts on this one?

Carly Rae Jepsen in Gomez-Gracia. I can’t say this is a worst, but I don’t like the color. It looks to little girly for me.

Kerry Washington in Stella McCartney. I think she looks fabulous in yellow…however, I’m not loving this dress for this event. I wish she went a  little more edgy. It’s not BAD, but it’s not good.

WORST DRESSED

Ke$ha…I hate this. Yes…it’s not her worst, but the shape of the shoulders make her look so wide, I dont like the shoes with the dress, I just don’t like the dress in general. Plus her hair is a really weird color of blonde and she looks kinda orange.

Nicki Minaj in Monique Lhuillier. This is the case of a fabulous dress gone wrong. Julie Bowen wore this dress earlier this year and I put her on my best dressed; it was so amazing…I HATE it here. It clashes with her hair, it makes her look huge, and it looks like an ugly prom dress. Not ok. Don’t try to outdo what was already perfect.

Christina Aguilera in Pamella Roland. I actually kind of like her hair and makeup, but then it all goes downhill. It looks to small for her and does not flatter her figure. Also I don’t like the print or how orange she looks.

Jordan Sparks in Etro. Normally I love Etro, but I do not love this. I don’t know if it’s the color or the pattern. It’s just a no go for me. It’s the dress, not Jordan! Sorry girl!

Brandy in Ekaterina Kukhareva…I hate this. I don’t like the shape. The color does nothing for her…and it’s not really even very fun. So I have no idea why she chose this out of everything she could have. Plus the boots are weird.

Pink…mostly because of the dumb face she is making I think, but I don’t like this dress. Also because the color is not brown or copper, it’s just kinda this muddy in between color. It’s not a great fit. It just makes her looks straight up and down. Not a fan.

Cyndi Lauper wearing who knows what…I don’t even know what to say about this. How old is she? Why is she trying to wear this? Who would even wear this in general? Ugh.

BEST DRESSED

Jennifer Morrison in Abed Mahfouz. She looks gorgeous! I love the sleeves and the details on the neck.

Taylor Swift in Zuhair Murad. I love that she wore a short dress and put her hair up. It’s a little different than usual for her. I just think she looks really classy and age appropriate. Sometimes shes dresses a little bit too old, but I love this!

Carrie Underwood in Abed Mahfouz. I love this. I love the color, the deal, the shape. She looks amazing. 

Elisha Cuthbert in Georges Chakra. I think she looks amazing. I love this dress and the way it fits. Beautiful! I like that she pulled her hair back and made that really simple so you could focus on the dress.
