It’s been a long while my fellow fashionistas. I’ve been off the blog radar for about four months. I know, I know, I’ve been slacking way too much and it’s just unacceptable. No excuses, however, I have been working on other major things that can very well lead me to the beginnings of my dream coming true so stay tuned for more news on that in the coming weeks/months.
The past two days have been pretty exciting with the 2014 VMAs and the 2014 Emmy Awards back to back. Those of us who are wild about style were pretty much in fashion heaven. I figured what better way to get back to blogging than with my favorite picks from both award shows. While there were some instant favorites, I have to say that I had to really go through many pictures to make some other choices because the ladies went all out with the style this year. It was pretty tough to make a final decision. This being the case, I decided to just list my best dressed choices and leave the worst out of the equation. Why not come back after four months with only positive vibes? 🙂
On that note, let’s get started my loves. Below are my picks in no particular order…
2014 EMMY AWARDS BEST DRESSED:
Camila Alves in Zuhair Murad. The moment I saw her I was wowed. This sheer dress is stunning and it shows off Camila’s body gorgeously. I love that she slicked her dark hair back and kept the accessories simple and minimal so as not to take anything away from the dress.
Lizzy Caplan in Donna Karan Atelier. If I were going to choose my picks in order, I would definitely pick this as my #1 best dressed. Everything about this cut is beautiful. The cut out back, the bodice, and can we talk about the white train flowing gorgeously to contrast the black. Her hair and makeup complement the dress perfectly. I had to post two photos so as to show how marvelous the back of this dress it.
Allison Williams in Giambattista Valli Couture. I have to say that the yellow band on this gown won me over. If you know me well, you know that yellow is my favorite color. I adore how the yellow adds that fabulous pop to the black and white of this gown. Allison looks so lovely. The bodice is beautiful and she always carries herself with such elegance. I love this!
Sarah Hyland in Christian Siriano. Simply fabulous! I LOVE the cropped top with the full skirt. Finally Sarah wore something that makes her look young and carefree while elegant and sexy at the same time. Her hair and makeup are flawless. This would be my second best dress of the Emmy night.
January Jones in Prabal Gurung. Oh. My. God! A dress with pockets! One of my weaknesses! This dress is spectacular. The color, the cut, the back is simply fabulous, did I already mention the pockets? LOVE! The strappy Christian Louboutin heels are the perfect match. I have to say, however, I was not crazy about her hairstyle. If it had been a bit cleaner, I think it would have complemented the ensemble a tad more. This dress would round up my top three. 🙂
Sofia Vergara in Roberto Cavalli. My girl! Don’t judge me for somehow always including Sofia in my best dressed lists. I love her. Her body is amazing, her hair is gorgeous, and her fun personality just completes everything. This white dress is incredibly sexy on her. It shows off her curves to perfection. I loved her straighter than curled hair, minimal jewelry and her red lips add that perfect pop. Sofia can do no wrong in my eyes. 😉
…And now for my 2014 VMA BEST DRESSED:
Jennifer Lopez in Charbel Zoe. THIS. IS. IT.! I can be truthful and admit that after seeing this woman on the red carpet, there were no others that could come even close. Jennifer looks stunning, beautiful, sexy, elegant… OMG the list can go on. This silver sequin dress with multiple, strategically placed cut-outs is just EVERYTHING. Her body is jaw-dropping and it is accentuated beautifully. The shoes are perfect, her hair and makeup are perfection, and even her skin has that sun-kissed glow to it. Simply magnificent! JLO rocked it.
~ THE END ~
There you have it my loves. If the remaining award shows are anything like this year’s Emmys, I will have a very hard time picking my favorites because, again, the ladies brought it this year. It thrilled me to see so many hits and very few misses. What do you all think? Do you agree with my choices? If you watched the red carpets, please join me in conversation and let me know what you think. Who were your favorites? Who do you think missed the mark? You all should remember the drill… feel free to comment respectfully below and let’s discuss. Go! #engage
Until next time…
