What They Wore: Cannes 2015 Best Dressed

Cannes-2015-Poppy-Delevingne
I love Cannes fashion. Most of the time celebs aren’t afraid to make style statements on the croisette, and we get to feast our eyes on over-the-top gowns, as well as the more subdued, real-life-appropriate day outfits. It’s a win-win!

This year, I found the fashions particularly inspiring, with some of the world’s most stylish leading ladies all over the red carpet, I had a tough time picking my faves. Diane Kruger, Cate Blanchett, Julianne Moore, Sienna Miller, Lupita Nyong’o, and many others brought their A-game to Cannes, and it was glorious.

I know that the festival isn’t over just yet, and I’ll update this post as more photographs become available, but in the meantime, let’s enjoy Poppy Delevingne in her exquisite CHANEL gown, the always regal Cate Blanchett in an otherworldly Giles creation, Diane Kruger in the most adorable Dolce and Gabbana dress, and many more.

Share your faves in comments and stay tuned for more beautiful looks from Cannes 2015!

Oscars 2015: Best Dressed

Marion-Cotillard-Dress-Oscars-2015
If you tuned in to my #YorkdaleOscars live-tweet session, you already know that I thought that this year’s Oscars were a bit of a snoozefest. NPH’s jokes fell flat, the red carpet wasn’t very exciting, and the show felt like it lasted FOREVER. But despite all that, once I started going through my best-dressed picks, I came up with quite a few faves. A little disclaimer…not all of these looks are 100% amazing in my books…but they were the best of the bunch – the most exciting, most beautiful, most elaborate. There were also some bad ones…like Anna Kendrick’s bridesmaid dress, or Karolina Kurkova’s rumpled duvet gown…but we won’t go there. Instead, let’s see who brought their A (and A-) game to Dolby this year.

Marion Cotillard’s Christian Dior Couture was one of the faves…not only because of the unusual construction and exquisite detailing, but because it was Marion who was wearing it. On anyone else this would not have been a win. But she really sold it.

Laura-Dern-Oscar-2015-Best-Dressed
As I mentioned on Twitter, Laura Dern isn’t usually a fashion girl, but she BROUGHT IT this year in a silver Alberta Ferretti gown. Bow down!

Julianne-Moore-oscar-2015
Julianne Moore was the clear winner this year…not only taking home the coveted Best Actress award, but rocking a custom CHANEL Couture gown like it was made for her…because it was.

Golden Globes 2015: Best Dressed

First of all, I had a blast live-tweeting with all of you last night! We didn’t always agree about our best dressed picks, and we didn’t always agree about the winners, but I’d like to think we kept it pretty civilized. And while I may be a bit late with my best dressed picks, I still wanted to post them, because there were SO MANY looks that I actually loved last night. Let’s get to it!

Golden-Globes-2015-Best-Dressed-Naomi-Watts
Naomi Watts was one of the first looks of the night that I loved. I have a weakness for yellow gowns on the red carpet, and this Gucci number was perfection on Naomi. Beautifully accompanied by a statement Bulgari necklace and a bold lip, this one was a clear winner.

Golden-Globes-2015-Best-Dressed-Emma-Stone
This Lanvin jumpsuit on Emma Stone was one of my absolute fave red carpet looks ever. It’s perfect for Emma and her quirky sense of style. The beaded top made this dressy enough for the red carpet, and that humongous bow at the back brought the drama. LOVED EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS.

Golden-Globes-2015-Best-Dressed-Keira-Knightley-Chanel
I LOVED what Keira Knightley wore last night. A lot of people hated this CHANEL number, but not I. It’s quirky and different, but still intricate and oh-so-stunning. I can imagine that it was even better in person. If I had to change anything, I’d make it a bit longer, or a bit shorter, as the length seems just a bit off. But other than that, Keira really did glow on that carpet last night.

Golden-Globes-2015-Best-Dressed-Dakota-Johnson
Dakota Johnson in CHANEL Haute Couture Fall 2014 made my heart beat faster. Back in September, I got a chance to see this gown at the CHANEL showroom in New York, and ever since then, I’ve been wondering which celeb would be cool enough to wear it on the red carpet. The top part of the gown is made out of grey concrete beads, somehow a perfect nod to that movie Dakota will be starring in next month, non?

Hollywood’s Most Powerful Stylists of 2013!

hollywoods-most-powerful-stylists-julianne-moore-leslie-fremar

Have you ever wondered how celebs end up choosing what to wear to those big award shows and movie premieres? Well, for the most part, you should praise (or blame) their stylist.The latest issue of The Hollywood Reporter features the 25 Most Powerful Stylists, photographed with some of their famous celeb clients, and I am both fascinated and obsessed.

Not surprisingly, the top stylists like Leslie Fremar (clients: Julianne Moore, Charlize Theron, Scarlett Johansson), Petra Flannery (clients: Emma Stone, Zoe Saldana, Mila Kunis, Megan Fox, Claire Danes), Rachel Zoe (clients: Anne Hathaway, Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Hudson), Kate Young (Michelle Williams, Rachel Weisz, Natalie Portman), and Elizabeth Stewart (clients: Jessica Chastain, Amanda Seyfried, Cate Blanchett, Frieda Pinto) all have lengthy roasters of A-list celebs eager to be dressed by these talented and savvy pros.

For me, however, this year’s Most Awesome Stylist Award (just made it up) goes to Erin Walsh (#9 on the list), who dressed Kerry Washington on this year’s award and premiere circuit – hitting it out of the ballpark with every single outfit. “I feel like Erin and I are fashion twins that were separated at birth. We definitely like to think outside the box,” shared Washington with the magazine.

This article did make me wonder what those “uber-stylish” celebs would wear without the help of their trusted stylists. Would Cate Blanchett wear socks and sandals? Would Zoe Saldana wear leggings as pants? Can you imagine? The horror!

Golden Globes 2013: Best Dressed

best-dressed-golden-globes-2013-kerry-washington-miu-miu

Last night’s Golden Globes did not disappoint. Don’t you think? I truly loved Amy and Tina hosting the show, but I wish I’d seen a bit a lot more of them during the broadcast. Watching the red carpet broadcast before the show, and live-tweeting it was also a ton of fun for me. Thanks to those of you who participated in the best/worst debates! It made watching the Globes alone in my pjs a lot more social. So on to my personal best dressed list.

There were quite a few celebs last night that wowed me with their picks (or their stylists’ picks). Let’s get started, shall we? First up, we have Kerry Washington in Miu Miu. To me, this was an unexpected and perhaps a bit casual choice, but it felt fresh and interesting, and it wasn’t a mermaid-cut gown, and I loved it. Kerry has really been killing it lately in the style department, and this look is no exception.

Kate Hudson in Alexander McQueen. That body! That hair! That dress! Sublime.

Nicole Richie wore a stunning sparkling blue Naeem Khan gown, looking fresh, classy, and so-so-so beautiful! Can you believe that this is the same woman from that reality show starring Paris Hilton? Me neither.

When I saw Katharine McPhee in this amazing Theyskens Theory dress, I gasped. It is everything an LBD should be – sexy, elegant, and stunning. I could do away with those plastic straps on her shoes, but other than that, from her hair and make-up, to her choice of accessories, McPhee is a vision in black.
