Red Carpet Fashion Awards

2013Grammys_JenniferLopez

Jennifer Lopez pushed the limits of the 2013 Grammy Awards‘ tightened dress code, when she sizzled down the red carpet at California’s Staples Center on Sunday night.

She virtually wore only half of a gown with her Anthony Vaccarello Spring 2013 design; an asymmetrical wonder that exposed her entire (perfectly toned) right pin.

It was “a little shoulder and a little leg,” as JLo described it on the red carpet. But from where I was sitting, this was more like “a lot.”

That Angelina Jolie leg jut just won’t disappear.

While no one was paying attention to her accessories, she did increase the shine factor of the dress’s runway version with multiple rings and stacked bangles. More flash came with her sky-high, metallic-accented heels and a matching Jimmy Choo ‘Charlize’ clutch.

A high top knot, a bronze glow and dagger-shaped nails that were overlaid with gold leafing completed the look.

Too leggy or Grammys-appropriate glam?

Cassie Ventura arrived at the GQ Men of the Year party held at the Chateau Marmont in California last night without her beau, P. Diddy.

She is the latest celeb to fall in love with the Anthony Vaccarello Fall 2012 collection.

Her black maxi dress, featuring one long sleeve, a side slit, a cross-over waistband detail and a gold metallic panel covering one boob, was styled with black Jimmy Choo sandals.

While this is a good look for Cassie, it is also a very predictable one. I would’ve liked to have seen someone taller rock this look.

A black and white manicure and stud earrings provided the finishing touches.

After the show came the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show after-party. The dress code was clearly short and sexy and the models were more than happy to oblige.

Miranda Kerr: Sending my girl crush into overdrive, Miranda looked uber sexy wearing a Balmain Spring 2013 black silk dress with padded shoulders and a plunging neckline. She styled her look with Jimmy Choo mesh open-toe ‘Callie’ booties and a black studded Jimmy Choo ‘Calista’ clutch with side swept locks. I have one word for this look; perfection.

Karlie Kloss: Following a recently photoshoot with American Vogue, Karlie’s locks were cut short, but she added extensions for the VS Fashion Show. She wore Kaufmanfranco liquid silver sequin dress with gold strappy sandals. I’m on a fan of mixing metals as you know, but I’m willing to give my girl a pass on this occasion.

Joan Smalls: I’m also going to give Joan a pass for this mesh Julien Macdonald Fall 2012 dress which leaves little to the imagination. I’m not a fan of the exposed panties look, but as she was exposing her briefs all night long on the runway, the red carpet wouldn’t have felt much different. Nicholas Kirkwood fringed sandals completed her look. Read more…

Miley Cyrus made a guest appearance on ‘The Tonight Show With Jay Leno’ which is taped in LA on Friday.

The singer/actress, who turns 20 next month, talked about many things including Liam Hemsworth’s proposal and her guest star appearance in ‘Two And A Half Men’ which will air on October 18.

I’m sure Jay Leno didn’t quite know where to look as Miley wore a very daring bustier from the Anthony Vaccarello Fall 2012 collection.

The edgy navy and black bustier top was paired with a high-waisted vintage Moschino skirt with a city skyline-print.

Adding an extra kick to her look, Miley wore bright red Brian Atwood pumps.

Her controversial boyish pixie cut (which I love btw) and a pink pout completed the daring look.

Love or loathe?

Nicole Richie dared to bare at the 9th Annual Style Awards at the Lincoln Center in New York City last night.

Opting for an all black ensemble she wore a super short, skin-shunning Anthony Vaccarello dress from the designer’s Spring 2012 collection, the reality-TV-star-turned-fashion-designer could’ve tipped the balance into trashy.

The sleek fringe and accessories, however, save the day. The strappy Costume National shoes match the spirit of the dress, while the understated clutch by Edie Parker and earrings by Nicole’s own label – House of Harlow – enhance rather than detract from the dress.

A high plaited bun, metallic eye make-up and Neil Lane jewels complete her look.
