While many were declaring Charlize Theron and Jennifer Lawrence their best-dressed, and while I totally can see where they were coming from, I wasn’t a fan. They looked fab, BUT…in my opinion, Naomi Watts killed it! I mean, just look at her in that stunning Armani Privé gown! The neckline is complicated, but doesn’t overwhelm her, the dress fits like a glove, but isn’t too tight, her accessories are understated, and her hair and makeup – perfection. THIS is how you do the Oscars!
The rest of my list includes Alicia Vikander in an intricate pastel Elie Saab gown (look at that face!), Kerry Washington (who is my new Diane Kruger) in an embellished Miu Miu number despite the fact that it didn’t look as good in photos as it did on TV, Jennifer Hudson in a sequined blue Roberto Cavalli dress, and Jennifer Garner (I know, I’m surprised too!) in a ruffled Gucci number with a stunning statement necklace.
So what about you? Who were your best-dressed? Discuss in the comments!

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.

I am obsessed with this photo of Chloe Sevigny posing for a Miu Miu ad! Obsessed. As a long-time fan of Chloe’s, and an admirer of all-things Miu Miu (those pants!), I was stoked to learn of their collaboration! Which brings me to my question…is Miu Miu finally sick of young starlets? Or is it that women that can actually spend cold hard cash on the brand’s expensive wares helped Miu Miu change its mind/direction? Either way, I am really into it. Can’t wait to see more photos!
What do you think? Hit me up in the comments!

I am not exactly sure if we’re going to see eye-to-eye on my Best Dressed picks from the Met’s Costume Institute Gala 2012. But here they come. My number one pick for Best Dressed is Giovanna Battaglia in a floral Dolce and Gabbana gown, topped off with a floral crown (my recent obsession). She looks breathtaking…and a little Frida-Kahlo-esque…and I love everything about her look.
Diane Kruger (in a floor-sweeping Prada number) can do no wrong in my eyes. She looks stunning, no? Interesting enough, but not crazy. I love the dress, the accessories, the hair and the makeup. Brava, Diane! Brava!
And then we have the yin to Diane’s yang. There’s something slightly off about this Miu Miu outfit that Chloe Sevigny has chosen for the Met Gala, and yes, it’s a little crazy, but I still love it. It’s the antithesis of boring. And while it might not be the classiest of getups, I kinda…not-so-secretly wish I could pull something like this off. So because of Chloe’s guts (or her stylist’s), I give this look two thumbs up.
Rooney Mara in Givenchy is another one of my Best Dressed picks, because I really love what she has going on here. The hair and makeup really suit the dress, and I like that she went easy on the jewels…or rather, went jewel-less. There’s something weird going on in the crotch area…but I am willing to shrug it off as a photo-mishap.
How gorgeous did Ginnifer Goodwin look in that Monique Lhuillier gown? So pretty, right? I wish she’d smile a little, and not look so annoyed and/or grim in photos. Come on, Ginny! It’s a ball! You have a pretty dress on! You’re dating an effing prince! Ok, not a real prince, but it still counts…I think. Either way, she’s still a fave of mine, and I love this dress (and the color) on her so much!

I have a confession to make…I think I might have a case of Crazy Pants Addiction. It all started with a pair of printed Prada trousers I picked up at Holts Last Call, and escalated from then on. So far, I own floral pants, red pants, snakeskin pants, polka dot pants, pajama pants, black and white pants…and now I also own what le bf calls “clown pants”. Obviously, I disagree with his rash assessment of my new Zara wide-leg scarf-print silk trousers, because I think they are amazing!
Paired with my new fave leather jacket, velvet Miu Miu heels, and green OBJECT clutch, I think they look stunning…and not in a taser-stunned kind of way.
How do you feel about wide-leg silk trousers? Do you agree that they look like clown pants? Or are they perfectly 70s…in a good way? Let me know your thoughts in the comments!
I Wore: T-shirt, Leather Jacket, Pants – Zara; Shoes – Miu Miu; Clutch – OBJECT for Danier Leather by George Antonopoulos; Earrings – Forever21

Here’s what I wore last weekend to Blogger Brunch at Hotel Le Germain in Toronto hosted by the lovely Marta of With Love Gabrielle, where I indulged in some yummy drinks and food, made new blogger friends, and had an amazing time.
After brunch, I changed my shoes, threw my leather jacket on the couch, and went for a lovely neighborhood walk with le bf, soaking up the sunshine like a sponge. And it was spectacular!
I Wore: Top, Pants, Clear Ring, Necklace – H&M; Bracelets – Danier, Forever21, Kate Spade; Bag – Prada; Velvet Shoes – Miu Miu; Sunglasses – Elizabeth and James (via Shopbop)

Okay, so truth be told…most of these gifts are not last-minute Valentine’s Day gifts for “her” per say, but mostly for me…Stuff that I like, find pretty/cute/adorbs, and wouldn’t mind getting this Valentine’s Day…*hints, nudges, and pokes all around* If you think your girlfriend/friend/wife/lovah might like the same things…well, more power to you…I think any of the above would make a sweet gift to the one you adore. Or just buy it all for yourself, because the relationship that you have with yourself is the most important one. Am I right, or am I right?
What do you want this Valentine’s Day? Aside from yummy chocolates, of course! Share in the comments. Or if you’re still undecided, click here for more Valentine’s Day gift ideas.

I’ve already professed my love for Miu Miu Glitter Booties on my Stylish Bride blog (which I’ve abandoned lately), but I just cannot get enough of Miu Miu gorgessity this season. This ad, featuring Hailee Steinfeld living out every girl’s dream of swimming in sparkly shoes, is a few months old now, but the impact is still the same – NEED.WANT.GOTTA.HAVE.
Unfortunately, I still haven’t seen this exact pump online…but I am paying close attention – the pair in blue has my name written all over it. Which color is your fave? Share in the comments!
