Last night, Hollywood’s A-list gathered in celebration of the Academy Awards – and, while the weather may have been dismal, the fashion was anything but. The night’s best dresses? Check out my top five picks below.
Our Fashion Director, Jackie, is a New York Fashion Week pro. With many a show under her belt, she knows what it takes to own the front row – and each day, she’ll be sharing her schedule, tips, and, most importantly, her outfits right here with us. Check out what’s on the agenda for today.
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:
The People’s Choice Awards wasn’t even a week ago and yet we’re already on to awards show number two: the Golden Globes. With a red carpet that included everyone from Julia Roberts to Taylor Swift, my best-dressed list is a true mix of Hollywood heavyweights and a new breed of style icons.
Last night, the People’s Choice Awards kicked off what will be a steady stream of awards shows over the next few months, culminating with the Academy Awards in March. And while there were plenty of big wins (Sandra Bullock! Justin Timberlake! Britney!) and some truly hilarious speeches on stage – do yourself a favor and YouTube Ellen DeGeneres’s acceptance for Favorite Daytime TV Host – the real competition was on the red carpet.
I recently realized something about myself: I’m in a hair rut. After a teenage bout with experimentation (jet black, bright red, and a bob inspired by 90210’s Kelly Taylor), I’ve played it pretty safe with my hair. But secretly, I want to be a lot bolder. I want to be one of those women who is a natural hair chameleon, who can go from a platinum asymmetrical bob to long auburn waves with ease. Some women – like Victoria Beckham, Katy Perry, Drew Barrymore, and Rachel McAdams, just to name a few – actually have this ability.
As fans of Rue know, we love it when high-end fashion becomes attainable – and with designer collaborations all the rage right now, that’s exactly what’s happening this season.
We all love a flirty holiday dress (or two), but to really stand out this season, I’m test-driving tuxedo suit dressing.
Former Gossip Girl star Blake Lively recently announced that she will be launching her own lifestyle website. “The main element of it is that it’s about storytelling and it’s about living a very one-of-a-kind, curated life, and how to achieve that,” explained Lively. “I have so many passions outside of acting and things that I grew up being good at that I don’t utilize when acting.” Makes sense.
The chicest bag this season? It’s not a ladylike quilted chain-strap, oversized clutch, or top-handle satchel. It’s actually the trusty old backpack.
Okay, so, it’s not any old backpack. The chic leather one we’re seeing on celebrities, our favorite street-style stars, and the runways is a cool, nonchalant, off-duty version. Mary-Kate and Ashley’s label, The Row, has come out with a $55,000 crocodile model and (by comparison, a relative steal) a $17,000 patchwork fur one. Style icon Kate Bosworth is sporting 3.1 Phillip Lim’s white version in the November issue of Lucky magazine and designer Junya Watanabe‘s entire men’s 2014 spring collection was inspired by the humble backpack.
