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.

Awaiting The 2014 Golden Globes

It’s a big day, today! Are you as excited as I am? When it comes to dresses, I prefer the Golden Globes to the Academy Awards because the event always provides more exciting and versatile red carpet appearances. Therefore, I am looking forward to seeing the dresses tonight. Until then, enjoy Cate Blanchett‘s heavenly look at the 2014 Golden Globes in a Jean Paul Gaultier dress.

PS: Regrading who I’d like to win…I really hope Jared Leto and Leonardo DiCaprio will take the statue home.

30 Red Carpet Looks to Remember

Hello everybody! I hope you all had a magic Christmas! Before putting an end to this year, it’s time to recap some of the most thrilling red-carpet appearances of 2013. Although I haven’t wrote about many of them as I gave up covering events, I have always kept an eye on the dresses these ladies have worn thorughout the year.

The most beloved designers were Elie Saab and Christian Dior. If I were to chose between them I’d go with Elie Saab mostly because of consistency. Although Dior has provided some beautiful gowns for the red carpet, I cannot get over the downturn it made in the last months. And this is how I get to the most disappointing brands lead also by Dior. The latest collections have not fulfilled my expectations and have sadly managed to transform Marion Cotillard from a red-carpet diva into a mediocre, if not disastrous, appearance.

Apart from the award ceremonies, a lot of beautiful gowns were delivered during promotional tours. I have included in this top some photocalls and TV shows as well. Enjoy!

Finally, a dress that I love without any doubt! Simplicity has got me this year, therefore my excitement for such understated refined gowns has been topping everything lately. Perhaps this is why I couldn’t find too many appealing gowns at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. But Nicole caught my attention at the opening ceremony and has done it again tonight, at the end of these two busy weeks. Last night was a wrap for the 2013 Cannes Film Festival and I am happy I got too see such a glamorous and elegant look on the red carpet.nicole-kidman-2013-cannes-film-festival-zulu-remiere-closing-ceremony-white-dress-red-carpet

Karlie Kloss, “The Immigrant” Premiere

karlie-kloss-the-immigrant-premiere-dress-louis-vuitton-style-red-carpet-2013-cannes-film-festival-2There hasn’t been much excitement on the red carpet lately hence my lack of updates. Even last night, when Marion Cottilard’s new movie “The Immigrant” premiered, the stars, including the French actress herself, didn’t surprise with any breath-taking gowns. So, the only one that eventually caught my attention was top-model Karlie Kloss who wore a strapped Louis Vuitton feathered dress.

Maybe I am still under the spell of Great Gatsby which I only went to see yesterday, but this look really works for me! The flapper-inspired ensemble with feathered hem goes very well with her short locks. And her tall slender silhouette makes it even more appealing. Perhaps the shoes are a little bit heavy for this delicate design and I am strictly referring to the heel structure, but on the whole, it’s a wonderful look.
