Just as I started to feel like I will never see something new and fresh on the red carpet, I’m proven wrong…and I love it! I mean, just look at this stunning Giambattista Valli Haute Couture dress that Emma Watson wore on the
red carpet parquet floor at the Elle Style Awards 2014! It’s daring, it’s fun, it’s so effing cool, and I want it on my body. Love how the skirt is an exaggerated bow, love the sequined “crop-top”, and love that Emma chose to go relatively jewel-free for the occasion, letting the dress be the star of the show. Love it all!
This is what I’ve been craving lately. More creativity on the red carpet, and less beige blah embroidered mermaid-skirted “Taylor-Swiftness”. Is that too much to ask?

This year’s Met Gala theme was “PUNK: Chaos to Couture”, and since so many of the celebs in attendance nailed it, I couldn’t simply post my fave looks and be done with it. This time, I chose to bring you not only my fave looks, but also the runners-up, and the headscratchers all in one post.
Let’s start with my faves. I loved the ornate Dolce and Gabbana dress on Katy Perry, the grand headpiece on SJP, the elegant Margiela on Gwen Stefani, the stunning, but decidedly NOT punk Givenchy gown on Rooney Mara, and an orange moomoo-like goodness on Ashley Olsen. None of those looks screamed punk to me, but I found these dresses to be interesting, fashion-forward, and gorgeous too. Well, SJP’s panty-flashing Giles gown wasn’t exactly my type, but if anyone could’ve pulled it off it’s her.
Apart from my top 5, I enjoyed so many other looks! From Giovanna Battaglia gilded head-to-toe goodness, to Solange Knowles looking lovely in a Kenzo gown that was perhaps a tad too casual for the Met, but beautiful nonetheless, to Emma Watson in a very sexy Prabal Gurung…there was no shortage of fashion porn at this year’s gala. Some celebs decided to don simple LBDs to the event, which in my opinion was a total waste (I’m looking at you, Michelle Williams), but others made up for it with punk hair (Miley Cyrus), and studs galore (looking gorgeous, Sienna Miller!).
All in all, I loved this year’s fashion offerings. I hate wading through a million photos of boring outfits, and this year there weren’t too many.
So now it’s your turn! Which celebs brought their A-game to the 2013 Costume Institute Gala, and which crashed and burned? Share your opinions in the comments!

Toronto International Film Festival has come and gone, and though it’s been both exhausting and exhilarating, I can’t wait until next year’s
film fun fest. But before we say good-bye to the films and the stars, here’s a look at just a few celebs that descended upon this city in all their stylish glory. From my fave style fille Diane Kruger, to glorious Monica Bellucci, to fresh-faced Emma Watson, to stunning Kristen Stewart, I had a great time going through the outfits, and choosing my faves!

Spring 2010 ads have been steadily pouring in for over a month now, and in the midst of even mild winter, here in Toronto, it’s quite nice to look at the beautiful Spring collections and dream of what’s ahead! Karlie Kloss’ stint for Hermès is one of my favorites – those scarves, that hair, the locale. Such a dreamy paradise shot!
And then there’s Raquel Zimmermann for Alexander McQueen. What a brave girl! The collection, which was full of reptile prints on the runway, translates quite well into the printed ads, featuring the slithery, yet beautiful creatures, and of course, Raquel wrapped up in their cold-blooded embrace. Now that’s what I call professionalism. Because if those snakes were slithering anywhere near me…don’t even want to imagine! Though I must admit, the McQueen ad is definitely one of the more eye-catching and stunning photographs I’ve seen lately!
Which one of the Spring ads is your favorite?

She’s only 19, yet she already has a Burberry campaign by Mario Testino under her belt. Emma Watson’s red carpet choices in the past couple of years never failed to inspire, and unlike some of her peers this Brit always dresses age-appropriate and never tacky *cough* Heather Graham *cough*.
Most know her as Hermione of the Harry Potter franchise, but in this campaign, she’s looking much more grown up, stylish and somber. Great choice, Burberry!
