2015 PCAs — It’s All About the Firsts Baby!

First awards show of the year, aka 1st major red carpet. Thus, the 1st Best Dressed List of 2015 for Fashion Nexus! And based off this list, a first for my fashion blog, if I’m not mistaken, I included a decent amount of pant suits or jumpsuits. Usually, I am not a fan, but these ladies tailored their looks so well; the fit was very much on point. So without further adieu, here are my top fave looks for the 2015 People’s Choice Awards!!

1420681246_allison-janey-560  Allison Janney

Allison’s all over glittery silver Rani Zakhem fitted dress dazzled. It sort of reminded me of a disco ball, but I could care less. This was glitz and glam perfection! She accessorized her look with a deep red Devi Kroell clutch and diamond Martin Katz jewels.

Allison really showcased high fashion & style throughout the night as she was the co-host of the PCAs. I think she rocked her sexy side in the red fitted knee-length dress with lace detailing. She also found a way to keep up with a red carpet trend of the night, making pants suits WERK, and she did so just as well as the rest with her all white suited look. She hit high marks with another trend for the night, all black looks, as she looked fab in her embellished black gown. And to top her night off of many fashionable looks, a fitted turquoise gown — A++ Allison, you did great at hosting, but also at being a fashion queen for the Red Carpet!


Anna Faris’ looks were not too shabby either as she was the other co-host. She found the fun with this embellished tangerine Georges Hobeika knee-length dress. She too rocked an all white suited look alongside Allison. She certainly then found the glam with her all-over embellished black floor-length gown. The 4th look was her red carpet number, not my fave of the night, but still showcasing a bit of sass with this 2-piece Juan Carlos Obando look. And then finally, super sexy, yet chic, in this long-sleeved sparkly gold mini. Overall, I still give Anna high marks for her many fashionable choices!


Giuliana Rancic

Giuliana went old school Hollywood glam in this fit & flare mint green Tony Ward dress. All styling was perfectly in line with this retro-glam vibe. Kudos to her whole team — styling by Monica Rose; soft, subtle makeup by Daniel Deleno; & luscious waves by Melissa Brown.


1420680915_portia-de-rossi-560  Portia de Rossi

This is a stunning jumpsuit. Portia definitely picked a winner in this royal blue Zuhair Murad look with a geometric print bodice. It was such a chic, minimalistic ensemble, as were her accessory choices — nude Giuseppe Zanotti heels and Jacquie Aiche jewelry.

Stana Katic


Stana was the elegant belle of the ball in this flowing black and white floral Carolina Herrera gown. To top off this breathtaking look, her black Amanda Pearl clutch and Neil Lane jewelry.



Brooke Anderson


Not sure who Brooke is wearing, but I love this 2-piece black look. What’s not to love! — the full skirt, the embellished bodice. She just looks so effortlessly chic and elegant.

1420682756_sarah-hyland-560  Sarah Hyland

Sarah, like Allison, also chose a sparkling silver number. She went with this gorgeous Christian Siriano short dress with an embellished sheer overlay. And her silver coloring didn’t end there — silver Stuart Weitzman heels, a silver Jil Milan clutch, and silver/diamond Lorraine Schwartz jewelry. She even made use of some statement-making silver eye-shadow. But all silver was no problemo for me, I loved this fresh, youthful look for her.


1420679851_bella-thorne-560  Bella Thorne

Bella was in H2T Armani. As I said earlier, not generally a fan of pant suits for the runway, but this look was so chic, so fitted, very well tailored. She not only looked effortlessly beautiful with her look, but also her beauty regime — compliments of Neutrogena from Walgreens, Zen lashes, with Neutrogena brand Ambassador Amy Oresman to assist in providing this glowing make-up look, bold red lip, and then also, gorgeous waves, courtesy of Castillo hair.


Monica Potter

Another all black look, this time a DVF jumpsuit with a chain-linked neckline. Monica appeared to be beaming all night, and why not when you can make an understated jumpsuit look so fabulous. She also donned some lovely Phillips House accessories.


Kimberly Perry


Not sure who Kimberly is wearing, but she looks stunning in this nude belted dress. She looks great, from head to toe, so another huge kudos for the styling team — CLD Style/PR; Luxury Brand PR; and stylist Cory B. Savage. She further accessorized her look with a leopard clutch and L’Dezen jewelry.

Ellen Pompeo

Ellen looks radiant in this blush pink Elie Saab jumpsuit with lace detailing. She looks mesmerizing! Her look is completed with Christian Louboutin shoes, a burgundy Salvatore Ferragamo clutch, Graziela Gems diamond stud earrings, and a Dana Rebecca Designs ring.


Katharine McPhee


Katharine looked super sexy in this black & white Balmain fitted number, with a midriff cutout and a criss-cross haltered top. She is accessorizing with heels from Daniele Michetti and Kwiat jewelry. Katharine had an amazing team behind her to create this STUNNING look — Jeff K Kim for styling; chic updo from Kylee Heath; & a bold, luscious beauty look with dark burgundy lip by Kindra Mann-Weber. 

Fifth Harmony


Two trends of the night, all black & nude/blush looks. Fifth Harmony made use of both to create their ensemble of looks for the group. Each gal looks super sexy in their individual fitted look!

Ally looked sexy fab as she wore a black strapless DSquared2 mini and dramatic heels, with some statement-making jewelry from Lionette by Noa Sade and Charles Albert.

Normani  rocked a sexy casual look, wearing a DSquared2 jacket and leather skirt combo, and also donning some statement jewelry, dangling earrings from Lionette by Noa Sade.

This was a near total DSquared2 night for the gals, as Lauren was also in a fitted DSquared2 dress, but she opted for PUSHMATAaHa jewelry.

I’ve seen Dinah’s fitted long-sleeved DSquared2 dress on a different red carpet, but she rocked it just as well, complete with Charles Albert jewels.

And finally, Camilla wore a Gemy Maalouf 2-piece ensemble, a barely there number for sure, with nude Alejandra G. heels.

Chris Evans


What best dressed list would be complete without a few handsome gentleman to grace us with their presence. Chris looks casually laid back, relaxed, & suave in this sweater/slacks look. As you will see, the boys loved their many shades of blue!


As I said, the guys loved some blue looks, and Gregg certainly rocked this dark blue Marc Jacobs suit, very handsome indeed!


The 1st Red Carpet Best Dressed List for 2014 — People’s Choice Awards!!

OMG, so excited!! Why? Duh! It’s award season, which means it’s time for red carpets galore! I look forward to posting all of my own best-dressed lists. So here is my first list for 2014, for of course the 2014 People’s Choice Awards, so enjoy!

91638b72-7843-4aa7-9d76-c656409cbf06_NinaDobrev-PeoplesChoiceAwardsNINA DOBREV: So 1st up is the lovely Vampire Diaries actress Nina Dobrev. Even though only half of the fitted Jenny Packham dress is decked out with sparkles, Nina is fully shining in this look. She perfected the finishing touches for the look with some shiny silver accessories — a Raowulf clutch and Charlotte Olympia sandal heels.



Greer might be a little new to the red carpet scene, but she wowed in this gold lace applique dress by Mikael D, which was cut at the knee. She also added the perfect accessories to complete her look with a nude pair of Rene Caovilla heels and a bronze Liebeskind Berlin clutch.

                   JENNIFER HUDSON                                  The 40th Annual People's Choice Awards - Arrivals

What red carpet is complete without a LWD! Yes, if there is a LBD, we can have a LWD! J. Hud rocked this stark white gathered BodyCon dress by KAUFMANFRANCO. She completed her looked with a pair of ankle-strapped Manolo Blahnik heels, Neil Lane earrings, and a Samsung Galaxy Gear bracelet.



Certainly of the 2 hosts that evening, Beth was the one that stole the red carpet show for me. I love this black and white color-blocked floor-length Guilietta gown. She looks effortlessly chic and all of the accessories and finishing touches/details were cohesive with the overall look. Her Deco-inspired jewelry by David Webb complimented the look well, not overshadowing, as did her black heels by Rene Caovilla. Her coral lip and soft smoky eye were also on point and was done by Mark celebrity makeup artist Jamie Greenberg. As hosts though, you get more than one try to knock a look out of the park, so to speak, and neither Kat nor Beth disappointed.


In the 2nd picture, as you can see, the two ended the night with some classic glam looks, an off-the-shoulder draped Black Halo floor-length gown on Kat Dennings and a white lace, deep V-neck Naeem Khan mini on Behrs.

kat-dennings-2-600x450Great looks continued, as seen in this 1st pic, with Kat wearing an royal blue peplum dress by Oliver Tolentino Couture and Beth rockin’ her smokin’ legs in this crystal-embellished fit-and-flare Kate Spade New York mini. Her legs had the perfect glow thanks to St. Tropez’s Bronzing Mousse and Gold Skin Illuminator.

In the 2nd pic, Dennings looked amazing in this sleek Ted Baker jumpsuit in black, with a keyhole neckline. While Beth, again rockin’ her golden stems, looked great in a gold hand-beaded Dilek Hanif mini



I don’t have any designer information for Allison, but that won’t stop me from including her on my list! She looks great in this lacy LBD and black sandal heels. I think she might also be using the tiniest clutch ever!

best-dressed-pca-12zac-efron-michael-b-jordan-peoples-choice-awards-2014-03Don’t the guys from the soon-to-be-coming out film That Awkward Moment look great?!? Miles Teller, Zac Efron, and Michael B. Jordan all look so sexy and handsome! Michael is wearing a navy Lanvin suit, while Zac’s navy suit is by George Clinton. Great job guys!!

The 40th Annual People's Choice Awards - Press RoomJUSTIN TIMBERLAKE: I do have one other guy to add to my best dressed list, none other than JT. He stuns in all black, more specifically, his Tom Ford suit.



And last, but not least, one more LBD, but sadly also one more that I am missing designer information on, grrrr!!, but nonetheless still worthy of a best dressed mention — Shaun Robinson! This long-sleeved bodycon LBD is just great and I love that the bodice is done in leather, nice touch!
