This past weekend, two interesting fashion events occurred (ok, way more if you count the start of the Fall/Winter 2011 Ready-To-Wear season with the Montreal and New York Fashion Weeks kicking off. But never fear, I will, of course, cover that in detail in a future post...): the Grammys and the BAFTAs.
To me, the Grammys are always an excuse to go absolutely crazy (sometimes to the extreme and ridiculous) with fashion, and the celebs seem to try to get away with as much (or as little ;) as possible. This year, some fashion choices even left me asking, "who hatched this idea?" As I have no (kind) words for certain wardrobe choices, I will just post some looks I liked...
|Rihanna in Christian Dior Haute Couture|
I love couture & I love pansies, nuff said.
Plus, I think this dress shows off this gorgeous girl's *ahem* assets better than other outfits...
& still screams for attention, just in a different way.
|Nicole Kidman looking lovely in Jean Paul Gaultier.|
Where was she hiding this dress at the other red carpet events?!?
|Julianne Hough in Malandrino.|
So different! I think this is absolutely gorgeous & I would wear it any old day ;)
|Selena Gomez in J. Mendel|
She looks sweet & sophisticated, & totally un-slutty :)
And now for the runners-up:
|Heidi Klum in Julien Macdonald|
|I especially like the back.|
|J Lo in Emilio Pucci|
|Florence Welch in Givenchy Haute Couture|
At least it's different. And definitely not trashy.
|Lea Michele in Pucci|
Like her SAG dress, this one is so much better than those pouffy, girly gowns.
On the other hand, the BAFTAs (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) were all reserved elegance...which could get boring. But not with these lovely ladies:
|Thandie Newton in Monique Lhullier|
Again a gigantic floral - love it! & the colour is to die for!!
|Noomi Rapace in Givenchy|
Glitter done right.
|Emma Watson in Valentino|
I always love her choices.
|Julianne Moore in & with Tom Ford|
ok, so Tom Ford could be greatly influencing my opinion of this dress...
|Gemma Arterton in YSL|
Simple but gorgeous!
And two sweet LBDs:
|Edith Bowman in Amelia Wickstead|
|Felicity Jones in Chanel|
So, those are my thoughts. What did you think?
