54th Annual GRAMMY Awards: Gwyneth Paltrow in Stella McCartney

A beautiful lady in an illusion dress…..

Celeb:  Gwyneth Paltrow

Designer:  Stella McCartney

Event:  54th Annual GRAMMY Awards, Los Angeles

Verdict:  I really like this Stella McCartney dress on Gwyneth.  The sheer illusion panels on the sides really make her already lovely figure look, well, that much more lovely!  Sleek hair, pink lips and red nails provide the perfect finishing touches to this polished, chic and very sexy look.  Love it!

What do you think?  Do you like Gwyneth in this black Stella McCartney gown?  Love it?  Loathe it?

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!)

‘Underworld Awakening’ Premiere: Kate Beckinsale in Jenny Packham

I never really had an interest in ‘Underworld Awakening’ until now….

 

Celeb:  Kate Beckinsale

Designer:  Jenny Packham (dress), Amrapali (jewelry)

Event:  Screen Gems’ ‘Underworld Awakening’ Premiere, Los Angeles

Verdict:  Quite impressive, really.  I think this gold cap sleeve sequin encrusted Jenny Packham gown looks fantastic on Kate.  She is simply stunning.  This dress is beautiful (so is Kate!) and I love how the train isn’t super long, but drapes just perfectly.  Amrapali bracelets, pink lips and soft, flowing curls complete her look. 

What do you think?  Do you like Kate in this gold sequined Jenny Packham gown?  Yay or nay?
