2014 MTV EMAs Red Carpet Roundup

2014 MTV EMAs Red Carpet Roundup

The MTV EMAs 2014 took place at The Hydro on Sunday (November 9) in Glasgow, Scotland. I was expecting to be at least entertained by the red carpet arrivals; sadly it was a total bust. Perhaps they could can the event for good if this is the best they could muster for the red carpet.

Ariana Grande: Finally letting her hair down – literally, not metaphorically – the singer showed a more grown-up side to her red carpet dressing. Her black Cristiano Burani gown with cut-outs is basically a copy of a Michael Kors Spring 2013 gown which was much loved by Alicia Keys and Myleene Klass.

Alesha Dixon: Even with its decorative detailing, this Mary Katrantzou ‘Oriane’ shirt dress doesn’t feel glam enough for an awards ceremony. Taking the event out of the equation, I simply adore this bold look styled with fierce Sophia Webster ‘Mila’ cage sandals and a violet lip to die for.

Katie Holmes In Azzedine Alaïa – DuJour Magazine Party

Katie Holmes In Azzedine Alaïa - DuJour Magazine Party

Katie Holmes attended DuJour Magazine’s party held in her honour on Tuesday (September 16) in New York City.

The actress wore a black stretch-knit Azzedine Alaïa dress featuring ladder-effect vertical stripes which was a tad revealing by her standards.

The revealed bra might be a little off-putting for some; however, I like that she opted to shake things up as often her style can feel stale.

Keeping the styling uber simple with a single gold bracelet and Manolo Blahnik pumps, a voluminous blow-out and smouldering eye makeup rounded out this sexier than usual look.

Too sexy for Katie, or a welcome change?

Irina Shayk In Azzedine Alaia – ‘Hercules’ LA Premiere

Irina Shayk In Azzedine Alaia - ‘Hercules’ LA Premiere

Following her appearance on ‘Extra’ earlier in the day, Irina Shayk attended the premiere of ‘Hercules’ held at the TCL Chinese Theatre on Wednesday (July 23) in Hollywood, California.

The model/actress wore yet another Alaïa look, this time selecting a sleek body-hugging gown in a luxe warm terracotta hue with a diamond-shaped cut-out etched into the skirt.

Opting for neutral makeup and a slicked-back hairdo, she wore the gown with the same Alaïa lace-up sandals she wore earlier in the day.

While the nude lining was need, the length it does throw me off loving this look in its entirety.

Irina Shayk In Azzedine Alaia – Extra

Irina Shayk In Azzedine Alaia - Extra

Irina Shayk paid a visit to ‘Extra’ taped at Universal Studios Hollywood on Wednesday (July 22) in Universal City, California to promote her new movie ‘Hercules’.

The model-turned-actress wore an Azzedine Alaïa white long-sleeved dress crafted from an optic-white intarsia knit. The simple design fits slim on the body and flares into a full skater skirt with a scalloped hem.

While it would’ve acted as the perfect canvas for statement accessories, she kept things simple, styling the look with an Alaïa leather belt and black leather laceup Alaïa sandals.

Karolina Kurkova In Azzedine Alaia – 20th Anniversary Of Giuseppe Zanotti Design

Karolina Kurkova In Azzedine Alaia - Giuseppe Zanotti Ibiza Store Opening

Karolina Kurkova attended the 20th anniversary of Giuseppe Zanotti Design in Ibiza, Spain on Friday (July 11).

Considering the season and her location, her Azzedine Alaïa figure-flattering knitted dress with a fitted bodice and loose-fitting skater skirt does seem like a very odd choice.

However, it does provide the perfect backdrop for her accessories to shine – this was all about the Giuseppe Zanotti shoes and clutch, after all.

Accenting her look with a black leather belt with gold hardware, she completed her look with a slicked-back ‘do and gold hooped earrings.
