2015 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards Red Carpet Roundup

2015 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards Red Carpet Roundup

Plenty more PYTs were spotted on the orange carpet at the 2015 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards at The Forum on Saturday (March 28) in Inglewood, California, each rocking their own interpretation of the youthful, fun dress code.

Willow Shields: Currently on ‘Dancing with the Stars,’ the starlet traded the sequins and sparkle for a Self-Portrait Resort 2015 asymmetrical crop top with matching culottes in a striking, graphic square print. I love the directional shaping of this look—and that she accented the black-and-white ensemble with deep plum-coloured heels and clutch, which elevated it to the next level. Sideswept waves softened the stronger edge for a flirty finish.

Quvenzhane Wallis
: As the face of Armani Junior’s Spring/Summer 2015 advertising campaign, the starlet represented the brand well in an Armani Junior white cotton pique, sleeveless dress and matching jacket with pink and pastel-green detailing. Worn with white platform sneakers, the look struck a balance between sporty and girly styling, which she topped off with a high bun and matching pink lippie.

Debby Ryan: Debuting a majorly new mane, the actress swapped her signature flame-red locks for light lavender-gray strands. Adding to the colour story, she wore a Sachin & Babi Noir multihued, flirty frock with sheer detailing paired with a complementary Edie Parker ‘Lara’ clutch and sky-blue pumps. I could have done without the nose ring, but I actually love this bright, bold look from Debby—even if her hair completely has thrown me for a loop.

Julianne Hough In Self-Portrait, A.L.C. & Monique Lhuillier – ‘Dancing With The Stars’ Promotion

Julianne Hough In Self-Portrait, ALC & Monique Lhuillier - 'Dancing With The Stars' Promotion

Julianne Hough had a very busy week promoting the latest series of ‘Dancing with the Stars’ giving us three different looks.

Good Morning America: The dancer’s first look was a Self-Portrait Pre-Fall 2015 checkered organza dress which was perhaps too sugary for Julianna, as the dress gave off a distinct school uniform vibe even though she tried to toughen up the look with Eva Fehren stud earrings.

Extra: Julianne’s second look was preferable. The look consisted of an A.L.C. semi-sheer blouse which brings a distinctly feminine take on this mannish offering. Styled with a gorgeous pair of Kurt Geiger ‘Ellen’ snakeskin pumps, nothing else was needed to perfect this look.

NYSE Closing Bell: Going back to uber girlie, Julianne wore a Monique Lhuillier Pre-Fall 2015 nude dress with tri-colour lace embroidery for a touch of intriguing flare. Maroon pumps would’ve been an interesting option, but she decided upon nude Giuseppe Zanotti pumps, with the maroon complement coming from the lip.

Look two is my favourite, which captures your eye?

Who Wore Self-Portrait Better…Carmen Ejogo or Priyanka Chopra?

Who Wore Self-Portrait Better Carmen Ejogo or Priyanka Chopra

Carmen Ejogo was the first to wear this Self-Portrait white sheer panelled dress to the 2015 InStyle And Warner Bros. 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards Post-Party last month, styling her look with a pair of hypnotic blue pumps to complement the embellished neckline.

Opting to wear the dress without the blue collar, Priyanka Chopra wore the same frock to the Roc Nation Grammy Brunch earlier this month, styling the simpler look with white pumps.

While one can admire Priyanka for making the look her own, the touches of blue make this look stand out from being just another LWD with sheer elements, so Carmen wins for me.

Priyanka Chopra In Zac Posen & Self-Portrait – MusiCares 2015 Person of the Year Gala & Roc Nation Grammy Brunch

Priyanka Chopra In Zac Posen & Self-Portrait - MusiCares 2015 Person of the Year Gala & Roc Nation Grammy Brunch

Priyanka Chopra attended two events in the lead-up to tonight’s Grammy Awards, first the 25th anniversary MusiCares 2015 Person of the Year Gala honouring Bob Dylan on Friday (February 6) and on then the Roc Nation Grammy brunch on Saturday (February 7).

25th anniversary MusiCares 2015 Person of the Year Gala: As you know I wasn’t a fan of her last look, but this Zac Posen coral strapless dress, which hugs her body before flaring out around the calf area, is much more like it. Sexy, yet still elegant. Keeping the look simple, just a KOTUR clutch provided the perfect finishing touch to this look.

Roc Nation Grammy Brunch: The actress/singer wore a Self-Portrait dress which offers a contemporary twist on the classic LWD featuring sheer panels which many of you will find fatiguing. Styled with white pumps and a box clutch, the hair was kept sleek straight on this occasion with a rouge lip rounding out her sexy, sheer look.

I love the simple impact of the first look. Which look do you favour?

Zendaya Coleman In Sergio Hudson & Self-Portrait – Essence Black Women in Music Event & Smashbox Studios Grand Re-Opening Party

Zendaya Coleman In Sergio Hudson & Self-Portrait - Essence Black Women in Music Event & Smashbox Studios Grand Re-Opening Party

Zendaya Coleman has been M.I.A. from the red carpet, but her love for colour hasn’t diminished during that time. Last night (February 5) she attended two red carpet events.

Essence 6th annual Black Women in Music Event: The singer/actress wore a black and white polka dot body suit and colour block pencil skirt from Sergio Hudson’s Spring 2015 collection. You’d be forgiven if you thought this was Moschino as it embodies the same effervescent spirit we see from the Italian brand. With the look so visually impactful, Zendaya kept the styling uber simple.

Smashbox Studios Grand Re-Opening Party: In total contrast to her first look, Zendaya wore a Self-Portrait perforated dress fashioned with extra flare via the fringed detailing. Once again she kept the styling very simple.

Which look do you prefer? First, second or none of the above?

I would say the first was my favourite as I don’t like the way the Self-Portrait dress just hangs off her.

2015 SAG Awards Red Carpet Roundup

SAG 1

Here is a quick roundup of some of the other attendees of the 2015 SAG Awards held at the Shrine Auditorium on Sunday (January 25) in Los Angeles, California.

Caitriona Balfe: The ‘Outlander’ actress certainly caught my attention in her saffron-hued Solace London strapless gown styled with red Gianvito Rossi sandals, a blood-orange Rodo clutch, Vhernier earrings and a Neil Lane ring. This is one of my favourites of the night.

Danielle Brooks: The ‘Orange is the New Black’ actress stunned wearing a navy Christian Siriano gown. The body-enhancing gown with the delicate tulle overlay on the bodice and the sweeping train is easily one of her best looks to date. She looked radiant.
