54th Annual GRAMMY Awards: Taylor Swift in Zuhair Murad

Wow.  Taylor has left me speechless.  Just wow.

Celeb:  Taylor Swift

Designer:  Zuhair Murad

Event:  54th Annual GRAMMY Awards, Los Angeles

Verdict:  LOVE IT.  That is really all I can say.  I love this gold embellished Zuhair Murad gown on Taylor.  I love everything about it: the cap sleeves, the high neck, the peek-a-boo chest panel and especially the beautiful train/skirt.  Whilst Taylor is known for wearing a lot of gold dresses/gowns to red carpet events, this is still a BIG CHANGE for her.  I think this is significantly out of her comfort zone.  Not only the dress but the slicked back hair and pink lipstick.  (She usually sports bright red lips!)  It’s simple, really:  I think this dress is stunning.  Taylor looks fantastic.  Period.

What do you think?  Do you like Taylor in this golden jewel-encrusted Zuhair Murad gown?  Love it?  Loathe it?

54th Annual GRAMMY Awards: Jessie J in Julien Macdonald

OH MY WORD! Have some metallic shimmer….

Celeb:  Jessie J

Designer:  Julien Macdonald

Event:  54th Annual GRAMMY Awards, Los Angeles

Verdict:  I freaking LOVE this Julien Macdonald dress!  The metallic-y look of it is soooo gorgeous!  I love the thick straps and mermaid-style skirt.  Not to mention how it literally looks like liquid metal.   Love it.  So different, yet so fantastic.  I am not crazy about her harsh eye makeup, though.  This dress is very bold, very sharp.  I feel like her makeup would’ve been more appropriate had it been a bit softer.  And the same goes for her hair.  I like it, but a softer look might’ve been better.  Buuuut, as I said….I LOVE THE DRESS.

What do you think?  Do you like Jessie J in this Julien Macdonald creation?  Love it?  Loathe it? (I have a strong suspicion that people will either really love or really hate this dress.  No in-between-ers!)

BAFTA Film Awards: Christina Ricci in Givenchy

A full-blown golden goddess….

Celeb:  Christina Ricci

Designer:  Givenchy

Event:  2012 BAFTA Film Awards, London

Verdict:  I think Christina looks stunning in this shimmery gold Givenchy gown.  The plunging neckline and front slit are super sexy but not over-the-top-flashy.  She looks chic and classy and I love her berry colored lipstick.  I wish she would’ve polished her nails, though.  Oh wells.  She still looks amazing!

What do you think?  Do you like Christina in this gold body-hugging Givenchy gown?  Love it?  Loathe it?

‘This Means War’ Premiere: Abigail Spencer in Christian Dior

You cannot go wrong with Christian Dior….

 

Celeb:  Abigail Spencer

Designer:  Christian Dior (dress), Casadei (pumps), Salvatore Ferragamo (clutch)

Event:  ‘This Means War’ Premiere, Los Angeles

Verdict:  Abigail looks lovely!  I absolutely adore this black strapless Christian Dior dress….especially the knot detail at the bust.  It is sexy and at the same time girly and…well…gorgeous.  Also, if you are a regular reader, then you definitely know how I feel about pointy-toe pumps.  I hate ’em.  But not in this case.  I actually think these Casadei pewter-gold colored pumps look great with this dress.  They add just the right amount of edge.  Abigail looks really great!

What do you think?  Do you like Abigail in this strapless black Christian Dior dress?  Love it?  Loathe it?

amfAR New York Gala: Nicky Hilton in Valentino

Nicky is quickly becoming one of my most-favorite celebrities!  She is completely stylish and so effortless….

 

Celeb:  Nicky Hilton

Designer:  Valentino Spring 2010 RTW

Event:  amfAR New York Gala to kick off Fashion Week, New York City

Verdict:  I LOVE THIS VALENTINO DRESS ON NICKY.  The newly blonde Nicky looks fantastic in this beige and nude hued embroidered dress.  As I said before, she is so stylish and chic.  Her red carpet outfits and her everyday outfits always look so put-together and classy.  This look is no exception.  Really lovely.

What do you think?  Do you like Nicky in this Valentino dress?  Yay or nay?

‘Oster Media Presents’ After-Party: Vanessa Hudgens in Leila Shams

Lady in black….

 

Celeb:  Vanessa Hudgens

Designer:  Leila Shams

Event:  Oster Media Presents Leila Shams After-Party,  New York City

Verdict:  I really like this black Leila Shams dress on Vanessa!  Normally I wouldn’t care for a long sheer skirt with a mini-skirt underneath, but for some unknown reason this look is pleasing me.  I guess because Vanessa has been so displeasing on the red carpet the last year or so….except when she wore that gorgeous canary-yellow Maria Lucia Hohan gown a couple of weeks ago.  Anyway, I think Vanessa looks really cute!  Her hair and makeup look gorgeous and I even kinda like her long cross necklace.  Wow.

What do you think?  Do you like Vanessa in this strapless black leather and sheer Leila Shams dress?  Love it?  Loathe it?

Academy Awards Nominees Luncheon: Michelle Williams in Victoria Beckham

Michelle Williams attended the 84th Annual Academy Awards Nominees Luncheon at the Beverly Hilton Hotel Monday afternoon….

Michelle chose a cute little shift dress from the Victoria Beckham Spring 2012 collection that features clouds and sequins!  I love how adorable this dress is!  But I am majorly disappointed by Michelle’s blah black pumps!  Boooring!  This is such a cutesy, fun dress….it really deserves an equally cute, fun shoe!  These plain black pumps need to go!  ASAP!  Other than her shoes, though, I think Michelle looks cute.  Not fantastic, but cute.  Same old, same old. 

Michelle, if you are reading this, take notice:  Since you are insistent upon having a super-short pixie cute, please keep it super blonde!  I am not really feelin’ this strawberry blonde color you are sporting!  Keep it platinum!  Platinum pixies are pretty!

Okay, so, back to the dress.  What do you think?  Do you like Michelle in this cloud-print Victoria Beckham shift dress?  Love it or leave it?
