Lupita Nyong’o was my favorite of the night! She wore the type of design I had predicted for her so imagine my excitement when I saw these pictures!

Last night, with a couple of hours left until the show, I saw this post on tumblr which I found  very amusing because it was so relevant to me and how I was feeling about Lupita – and apparently to some other 10,000 people. I wonder how the team behind Lupita’s red carpet appearances must have felt with the pressure of living up to everybody’s expectations. And they did!

Let me tell you why I am so fond of this look:

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote a post about the Haute Couture collections and , if you remember, I picked a gold Elie Saab dress for Lupita, the exact same design she wore last night. That’s how I pictured her: in a feminine deep v neck dress. And my dream came true! It wasn’t Elie Saab, it was Prada, as expected. The actress kept faithful to a minimalist style opting for very subtle details and accessories. Enjoy the pictures! (more…)

I have to start this list with the one and only Elie Saab! The Lebanese designer’s mind is a deep ocean of imagination and creativity and doesn’t cease to amaze us! This time Elie Saab has put together 48 breath-taking looks that are as dreamy and ethereal as he got us used to see. It’s hard to choose favorite looks !  He always manages to immerse you in the magical world of couture and charming elegance. I can already picture most of these dresses on the red carpet. My only hope is that the stylists will  work their magic and get them to the much anticipated Oscars. (more…)

The 2014 Golden Globes – My Favorites

Cate Blanchett in Armani Privé

cate-blanchett-golden-globes-2014-dress-red-carpet-fashion-style-designer-black-lace-armani-priveI was expecting to see Cate Blanchett dazzling on the red carpet regardless of her choice in the dress. And of course she did not disappoint. It’s true that after seeing her latest appearances, I thought that she would go for a feminine, ethereal or minimalist look. But perhaps that’s why the excitement tripled when she took over the red carpet in this breath-taking Armani Privé gown. It was quite unexpected and I was pleasantly surprised. Chopard earring, a retro hairstyle and flawless makeup completed the look. She truly knows how to make a lace gown work and not feel overwhelmed by it.
