Regina King In Michael Costello – NAACP Image Awards 2014

Regina King In Michael Costello - NAACP Image Awards 2014Regina King was also in attendance at the NAACP Image Awards 2014, hosted at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena, California on Saturday (February 22).

The film and TV actress wore a black Michael Costello gown.

I can only suppose this design was intended to project a sophisticated, yet edgy, image. But I’m having a hard time moving past the major cutout that rips through the bodice in a rather unflattering manner.

A sheer, cape-back train, all the frou of a too-long full skirt and rather unfortunate fit issues did nothing to warm my affection to this look.

Simone Smith gold jewelry was likely selected to coordinate with the dress’s hardware, but the gigantic hoop earrings only added to the distracting forces at play here.

I did like the pink lip, but sadly that may be the extent of the positivity I can muster here.

Delta Goodrem In Michael Costello- 3rd Annual AACTA Awards

Delta Goodrem In Michael Costello- 3rd Annual AACTA Awards

Delta Goodrem was also dropping jaws on the red carpet for the 3rd Annual AACTA Awards Ceremony held at The Star on Thursday (January 30) in Sydney, Australia where she joined Cate Blanchett, Lara Bingle and Elizabeth Debicki.

The singer/actress wore a magenta high-neck long-sleeved tantalizing cut-out open-back Michael Costello jersey gown which hugged at every curve.

With the high neckline perhaps a chic bun should’ve been considered; however, the singer left her glossy blonde tresses to fall down her shoulders, with smoky eye makeup and a selection of gold jewels rounding out her look.

Beyonce Knowles In Michael Costello – 2014 Grammy Awards Press Room

Beyonce Knowles In Michael Costello - 2014 Grammy Awards Press Room

Having dried off her tresses from her performance at the 2014 Grammy Awards held at the Staples Center on Sunday (January 26) in Los Angeles, California, Beyonce Knowles slipped into another look to meet the press, which was again all about the booty.

The singer wore an open-back Michael Costello fishnet gown with white embroidery, which she styled with Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

As alluring as this gown is, there isn’t much I like about it. It feels terribly dated, like something Tina Knowles would’ve whipped up for Destiny’s Child in the early days.

Also, I’m about ready for celebs to jump off this sheer trend… it’s been done to death.

Skylar Grey In Michael Costello – 2014 Grammy Awards

SkylarGreyInMichaelCostello2014GrammyAwards

Skylar Grey took to the red carpet at Sunday’s (January 26) 2014 Grammy Awards, hosted at the Staples Center in sunny Los Angeles.

The ‘Don’t Look Down’ songstress wore a design by Michael Costello with a nod to the ever-popular nude-hued trend.

The high-neck gown was a mix of fashion and rock ‘n roll, made of perforated leather with on-trend cutouts and an exaggerated fishtail silhouette. Skylar accented the gown with glamorous and dramatic two-tier teardrop earrings.

The singer continued to nude trend with neutral makeup and simple, pulled-back hair. The nude on nude on nude isn’t my favourite look. I love taking the leather trend to the red carpet, especially for a music industry event, but the colourless palette washed out the singer. I would have loved just a hint of colour, say in a red lip.

What do you think of Skylar’s nude Grammy look?

Victoria Justice In Michael Costello – 2014 MusiCares Person Of The Year Honoring Carole King

Victoria Justice In Michael Costello - 2014 MusiCares Person Of The Year Honoring Carole King

Victoria Justice joined Lady Gaga on the red carpet for the 2014 MusiCares Person Of The Year Honoring Carole King on Friday (January 24) in Los Angeles, California.

The actress wore a stunning Michael Costello ‘Victoria’ racer-front gown in a vivid neon-pink hue which lit up the red carpet.

Keeping the styling super simple she carried a Kotur black-and-silver clutch adding a selection of Vita Fede bracelets.

As perfect as this look is, I would’ve preferred her hair up in a slick ponytail.

Ke$ha In Michael Costello – 2013 American Music Awards

Kesha In Michael Costello – 2013 American Music Awards

It’s not a music awards show until Ke$ha comes and makes her statement, and fortunately, the singer was in full form at the 2013 American Music Awards on Sunday.

For tonight’s eyebrow raising look, the singer wore a dramatic Michael Costello gown that perfectly walks the line between classic glamour and awards show fun.

The one-sided peplum is a exciting twist on the classic peplum trend, and that perfectly toned leg gives Angelina’s a run for its money (Yes, I said it.).

I also love the cotton candy, dual-coloured hair. Sure, it might not be the most wearable look in the world, but ‘unnatural’ hair colours have been a trend for quite some time, and these muted versions are quite pretty.

Where things do end up just getting too busy is her hands–the black and white and rhinestone nailart, plus the multiple rings just end up being too much for the eye to take in.

But ultimately, Ke$ha actually won me over with this look.

Do you agree that this is just the right amount of fun, or are you shocked that I would feel so favorably toward the look?
