Loving Lupita: Our Fashion Director on Hollywood’s New It Girl

By Jackie Nasser, Rue La La Fashion Director

 
She seemingly came out of nowhere, but now, this girl is on everyone’s radar. And I mean everyone’s. After nabbing the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress from right under Jennifer Lawrence’s nose, stealing the show at every red-carpet event, and sparking dating rumors with fellow Oscar winner Jared Leto (he even referred to her as “my future ex-wife” in one of his acceptance speeches), it’s no wonder we’re all a little Lupita-obsessed right now.

While her performance in 12 Years a Slave got our attention, it’s her unique style that has us all really enthralled. It’s not easy to outshine Angelina Jolie, Cate Blanchett, and Julia Roberts on the red carpet, but somehow, Lupita has managed to do it time and again. Here are my picks for her top five awards-show looks.

It Takes Two: Hollywood’s Most Powerful Stylists Pose with Their Stars

Earlier this week, after a very exciting (and stylish) awards season, The Hollywood Reporter named this year’s most powerful stylists. We internally applauded, fawned over Hollywood’s style fairy godmothers, and then, just as we were about to move on, a high-fashion spread featuring said stylists and their A-list clients was posted.

Needless to say, moving on never happened. The pictorial was, as Rachel Zoe (who came in 6th) would say, “so major” that I blocked off my calendar for most of the afternoon. Scrolling through this online pictorial is like watching the credits roll, except you actually want to see everything and you feel pretty deflated when it ends – until you start imagining what your own pictorial will look like one day. Or, at least, that’s what I did.

Head on over to The Hollywood Reporter to see the pictorial for yourself.

The Grammy Awards Best-Dressed List

By Jackie Nasser, Rue La La Fashion Director

 
After a steady stream of awards shows celebrating both movies and TV, last night it was all about the music industry. Forget elegant gowns and dainty jewelry – at the Grammys, the red carpet is by far the most entertaining part of the show. The fashions are a little wild (Daft Punk in helmets), a little revealing (Paris Hilton in super-sheer House of Milani) and a little unexpected (Madonna and son David in matching Ralph Lauren suits). Here are my top five picks for best dressed:

Hits and misses. Every awards show is full of them – and last night’s American Music Awards was no different.

While Taylor Swift killed it in a flashy gold mini, Kelly Osbourne disappointed in a silver tea-length number. And as for Naya Rivera‘s revealing gown? Jury’s still out.
