So it’s only 7pm on Oscars night, and it might be a bit presumptuous of me, but I am declaring the radiant Lupita Nyong’o my best-dressed of the evening in her stunning custom-made blue Prada gown and Fred Leighton jewels. Watching her on the red carpet made me fall in love with her all over again. It was so refreshing to see someone so well-adjusted, eloquent, humble, funny, and gorgeous on the red carpet. I could watch her for HOURS.
Cate Blanchett in a stunning beaded Armani Prive gown looked ethereal and every bit like the winner that she is. She always carries herself with so much confidence and class. And of course, she truly is one of the most stylish women out there, so even though I was a bit sad not to see her in something more adventurous, I think this gown was still a perfect choice for a Best Actress nominee (and winner?).
As much as I usually hate the safe black or white gowns on the red carpet, the stunning Bulgari necklace over this beaded Calvin Klein gown on Naomi Watts really elevated this look, and made me take notice. This is obviously nowhere near the amazingness that is Lupita Nyong’o's Prada gown, but it definitely is one of my fave looks of the night.
Same goes for Charlize Theron in a stunning black gown. Only Charlize can make a black exciting and interesting on the red carpet. That deep plunge, perfect necklace to accentuate it, and of course that exquisite face – just perfect. I still can’t believe that THIS woman is dating Sean Penn. WHY?!
I was on the fence whether to add Kate Hudson in this Versace gown to my Best Dressed list, because there may be something off about that shiny fabric, but at the end of the day, that center knot, that cape, and that plunging neckline all sell it for me. She looks stunning and I love it.
The Worst and The Meh after the jump!

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.
More best-dressed after the jump!

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!

Only once I was done putting together the photos of my Best Dressed picks from the 2012 White House Correspondents’ Dinner, did I realize that all the ladies represented are blondes. And as such, is this not the best fantasy Real Housewives cast you’ve ever seen? I mean, we’ve got funny ladies Leslie Mann and Elizabeth Banks (sisters in my script), their spoiled and angsty teenage niece Dakota Fanning (in a gorgeous Prada frock to boot), the adorable preggo girl-next-door Reese Witherspoon (who is secretly a backstabbing biatch), and Kate Hudson - a quirky hippie neighbor (like Phoebe, but rich…obvi). I would totally watch that show! Wouldn’t you?
Back to the clothes. I like what these ladies wore. Also…which housewife is most likely to have an on-camera breakdown? Which housewife is sleeping with Dakota’s teenage boyfriend? And WHY isn’t this a show already?

What better occasion to summer-style-watch than at a festival set in the middle of the desert? Year after year, young and hip celebs flock to Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival to soak up the sun, the booze, and the music. My fave styles this year come courtesy of Whitney Port, in her practical shoes, colorful summery outfits, and not-so-fussy hairstyles. Scroll down for more celebrity photos and let me know which celeb outfit is your favorite…or least favorite.

I know that I’m a bit late on this one…but I couldn’t avoid posting about my fave SAG Awards dresses! Especially, considering the beautiful Jason Wu gown that Diane Kruger wore! Apparently, the model-turned-actress helped Wu design her marigold frock. It does remind me of that Michelle Willams dress from the Oscars, but I still love it oh-so-much! Paired with that make-up, and beautiful jewelry, I think Diane is definitely my choice for best-dressed! My list also includes Kate Hudson, in another Oscar doppelganger (remember Hillary Swank’s bum-plunging dress?), Marion Cotillard, and Sookie Anna Paquin, in a daring and very au-courant McQueen dress. Love these ladies and their choices! Didn’t do a Globes post, because most dresses were snoozefest (at least for me). SAGs, however, did not disappoint!
Are you looking forward to the Oscars’ fashion face-off? I know, I am!

As a huge fan of Italian cinema, I cannot wait to see Nine! Yes, Sophia Loren is the only person connected to the golden age of Italian movies, but the whole cast is very impressive indeed. And who was the “best-dressed” at last week’s premiere (in my opinion)? Kate Hudson! Two words…Atelier Versace. Great choice! Are you excited to see the movie?
