Best Dressed 2016 — All Over the Place

With so many red carpets going on, it’s hard to devote one feature to each event. So that means sometimes I must combine, but I still pay the most attention and highest regard to my most fave looks! From the 2016 CFDA Awards, the 2016 CMT Awards, and the 2016 Tony Awards, here are my top looks!

Best Dressed Combo — Flower Power

A couple of major red carpets occurred over the past week, thus deserving of some best dressed nods. There was the 2015 Tony Awards and then the 2015 Critics Choice Awards (TV). So here are my fave picks!

Vanessa Hudgens

2015+Tony+Awards+Arrivals+QcYxfq7M5CMl

I am all about some florals for this best dressed list, especially Vanessa in this vibrant printed floral Naeem Khan gown. Paired with her look, a glittery gold Rodo clutch and Norman Silverman jewelry.

vanessa-hudgens-tony-awards-2015-07

Her glam squad — Laura Polko creating this elegant updo, and Natalie Saidi for styling the look.

Jennifer Grey

2015+Tony+Awards+Arrivals+3wmUlficzPNl

Jennifer looked stunning in this stark white, lace Zac Posen fitted gown with feathers adorned on the hem. Her Glam squad details are as follows — Vanessa Heshima for both hair & makeup and Danielle Levy for styling.

Anna Chlumsky

2015+Tony+Awards+Arrivals+ny4EeAneG_jl

There were a couple of maroon gowns gracing my best dressed list. First one being Anna in this full length, silk Sophie Theallet dress. She accessorized with Solange Azagury Partridge jewelry.

Patricia Clarkson

2015+Tony+Awards+Arrivals+uzHrlD7nvRil

Not sure who Patricia is wearing, but with another bold floral look, I couldn’t resist in adding her to my list. I love the contrast of this shortened black dress with the lively, crimson red rose print.

Elisabeth Moss

2015+Tony+Awards+Arrivals+i-mqPj8iP1rl

Elisabeth too donned some florals, her choice, a fitted white Oscar de la Renta gown with multi-colored flowers embellishing the bodice.

She also had an amazing glam team, Kemal Harris & Tommy Buckett for styling, and Daniel Martin for beauty.

Kristin Chenoweth

2015+Tony+Awards+Arrivals+BvV8tHGzqPtl

Kristin was shimmery and shiny all over in this metallic silver Zac Posen gown, fitted to a tee and with a slight train. Deb Watson was her stylist for this look.

kristin-chenoweth-alan-cumming-tony-awards-2015-09

Leanne Cope

2015+Tony+Awards+Arrivals+IwC5mxlGnMql

More flower action from Leanne with this dark grey, mixed media, Randi Rahm dress. I am usually not a fan of florals and polka dots mixed, but here, it works! She paired with her look. Oscar Heyman earrings. And for her overall look details, we have Dessange for the gorgeous updo and makeup from L’Oreal Paris.

2015+Tony+Awards+Arrivals+9o1JAGEterjl

Debra Messing

Debra was my other maroon pick, her dress being a shortened Zac Posen halter strapped look. Beautiful accessories for her look include matching Jimmy Choo heels, a Judith Leiber clutch, and lavender DeGrisogono jewelry.

Kelli O’Hara

2015+Tony+Awards+Arrivals+qXh0VMKnsKPl

Not sure of the designer details for Kelli, but it’s another floral look, so of course I’m on board. But really it has such a vintage, antique quality to the dress that I am just such a fan!

Josh Groban & Kat Dennings

josh-groban-girlfriend-kat-dennings-tony-awards-2015-05

I am not sure who Kat is wearing, but I do know who helped in putting the overall look together — stylist Lawren Sample, makeup by Carolina Dali with use of Chanel products, and hair by Gareth Bromell.

Dule Hill

Dule is another stylish looking gent, his suit though in navy blue and by Ralph Lauren, with black Salvatore Ferragamo shoes and accessories by Scott Kay.

Constance Zimmer

1433122543_constance-zimmer-560

The UnREAL actress floated down the carpet in a floral crop top and a matching full skirt by Leanne Marshall. It must be the summer in the air, but I am really just loving all of the bright, colorful floral looks!

Jaimie Alexander

1433115040_jaimie-alexander-560

Jaimie went ultra-understated, but also ultra-chic with this ombre slate Halston Heritage strapless dress. Her accessories were all perfection, a Pasquale Bruni diamond bracelet, a metallic Halston clutch, Doves ring, and black Kurt Geiger heels.
Cat Deeley
1433115226_cat-deeley-560
And to complete my list, a final vibrant look from Cat, a tangerine Azzaro Couture, chiffon halter dress, embellished with feathery, navy embroidery.

 

Best Dressed Looks from Cannes 2015

Fashion and the Cannes Film Festival red carpets certainly go hand in hand. These gorgeous gowns are right up there with the likes of other major red carpets we see throughout a given year — Oscars, Grammys, Met Ball, etc. So here are my top picks from the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival. ENJOY!!

eva-longoria-4-290

Eva Longoria

There are almost no words to express how stunning Eva looks in this gray lace sheer-paneled Gabriela Cadena gown, which features a plunging neckline and mini train. It’s perfection! She accessorized with Lorraine Schwartz jewels and her gorgeous make-up look was courteous of L’Oreal Paris. Eva was attending the Inside Out premiere.

1c43ca8755488db5c8bd3da36369f9cc78114ae3

Diane Kruger

1431970517_diane-kruger-560

Diane, while attending the premiere of The Sea of Trees, donned a pale blue Prada gown, embellished with crystal appliqués and featuring a long silk scarf that trailed dramatically from her halter neck bodice.She looked magical! Paired with her look are beautiful Harry Winston jewels. And her pulled back wavy hair look was courtesy of Perrine Rougemont.

Emma Stone

1431715724_emma-stone-560

Emma was seriously on point with 2 of her Cannes looks. First, she attended the red carpet premiere of Irrational Man, wearing a sleeveless slate Dior Couture gown, covered in lace which included an elaborate train and open back. And to complete her look with some lovely jewelry, she wore a Repossi necklace and rings, and Jennifer Meyer stud earrings.

For this day look, she wore this structured lacy black Oscar de la Renta cocktrail frock, from the Pre-Fall 15 collection. She again wore Repossi, earrings and rings, as well as black Christian Louboutin heels.

Melanie Laurent

Shimmery and glittery all over, and I love it! Melanie looks exquisite in this completely beaded, cap sleeve Zuhair Murad gown with flowing train at the Inside Out premiere.

Rooney Mara

1431970654_rooney-mara-560

While attending the premiere of Carol, Rooney wore a cream colored, ruffled Rochas gown with a halter neck and key-hole slit. What a classic and ladylike look, great choice for Rooney.

rooney-mara-290

Salma Hayek

1431970709_salma-hayek-560

I love that Salma added a bold splash of color to the red carpet with this radiant orchid Gucci gown. It had such a great fit and you can’t miss this stunning, plunging neckline. She was too attending the red carpet premiere of Carol.

michellerodriguezcannes2015

Michelle Rodriguez

Michelle was another gorgeous gal for me with 2 amazing looks. While attending the Mad Max: Fury Road premiere, the actress sparkled in a flesh-toned Zuhair Murad gown, embellished with intricate designs and lace. She completed her look with deGrisogono jewelry.

Petra looked red hot while attending the Chopard Gold party, wearing this fiery red Elie Saab gown, with lace cutouts, and of course, Chopard jewelry.
Emily Blunt
emily-blunt-03
Emily was feeling a disco-ball-esque look with this custom silk Stella McCartney gown, and I’m all for it. Paired with her look were statement making, emerald Anna Hu Haute Joaillerie earrings and jewelry. She was attending the Sicario premiere.
emily-blunt-01
And to cap off my list, one more Emily Blunt look, this time simplistically minimalistic in a nude Calvin Klein Collection dress and Sutra jewelry. Here, she was attending the IFP/Euphoria Calvin Klein/Women in Film party.

Tribute to the Late, Great Oscar de la Renta

The fashion community and industry has certainly been in mourning this past week with the passing of acclaimed and renown fashion designer Oscar de la Renta. It’s such a shame that a lasting and long-lived career, surpassing the 50-year mark, has now sadly come to an end. The list of his many fashion achievements could go on and on. And his work will not soon be forgotten.

JACKIE KENNEDY

Jackie-Kennedy

He has dressed numerous 1st ladies, Jackie Kennedy, Nancy Reagan, Laura Bush, Hillary Clinton, to name a few. He was highly sought after by A-list celebs for various red carpet events, including Amy Adams, Sarah Jessica Parker, Taylor Swift. High profile brides wanted their special day to include a de la Renta gown, such as Amal Clooney, Huma Abedin & Kate Bosworth. His work is certainly deserving of tribute and the highest accolade.

Oscar_de_la_Renta_by_foto_di_matti

He did it all, from stunning and breathtaking dresses/gowns, of a more formal or eveningwear capacity, to that of daywear/RTW. Even his more day-type looks were of the highest luxurious quality. Oscar de la Renta built his legacy on a commitment to a value system constructed and maintained over time. He believed in hard work and the importance of appearance. He believed in beauty, not for beauty’s sake, but because he understood confidence could arise from merely wearing a garment.

NANCY REAGAN
