It seems like the American Music Awards are kind of like the off-brand Grammys. Sure, some of the big stars are there, but, like, Jay-Z and Beyonce aren’t exactly banging down the door to make an appearance. And also, what’s up with Sprint throwing its name up all over everything? Kind of tacky, no? Just about as tacky as some of the outfits worn by the potpourri of rock, hip hop and country stars in attendance at last night’s program. Click through to see what we mean.
I am fully willing to admit that LA is a totally different monkey than New York. The fashions, the seasons — everything is completely different. Which is why, after looking at the collection of looks at Thursday night’s GQ Man of the Year Awards, I kind of just give up. I don’t even know what month these ladies are dressing for. Certainly it’s not for almost-Thanksgiving time. In any case, some of these celebrities shine, while others completely miss the mark.
Earlier this week, Spanish film director Pedro Almodovar was the subject of a Chanel-sponsored Museum of Modern Art event. If that’s not high-profile artsy, I don’t know what the hell is. As anticipated, there was a lot of eye candy — artists, designers, movie stars, musicians … anyone who’s anyone was in attendance, and the outfits didn’t disappoint. Let’s check out the good, the bad, and the eye-searing.
Each year, the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund fêtes a generation of emerging American designers and honors one — the winner — with a $300,000 grant. For an up-and-coming designer, the award is a fast track to notoriety. The annual ceremony also brings out some of the best and worst in fashion. This year’s awards were held last night and some of the brightest fashionistas (and -istos!) came out to play.
This past weekend, celebs turned out in droves to honor … a performance artist? Yep, you read that right; instead of the usual self-congratulatory Hollywood crap, stars convened at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles to honor Serbian performance artist Marina Abramovic. Abramovic, along with Debbie Harry, performed at the event, and there was plenty of good, bad and totally out-there fashions (we’re looking at you, Jeremy Scott). Click through to see what we mean.
If there’s one place for a celebrity lady to step up her game, it’s on the red carpet. Whenever it’s rolled out, famous faces come out of the woodwork (do they exist when they’re not making public appearances? Important life questions) to show off what they’ve got. Classic, bizarre, avant garde — as we’ve seen, it’s all fair in
love dresses and war. But sometimes, even those who make a million a movie step out of line (and that is a fine line indeed!) and come off looking, well, cheap.
The Golden Globes? Yawn. The Emmys? Meh. The Academy Awards? Ugh, whatevs. The VMAs? Amateurs, all of the them! I have a new favorite award show and it’s the Latin Grammy Awards. Oh, I didn’t actually watch them. I just perused the red carpet fashions and had my mind blown. I must admit I didn’t know much about many of these singers/musicians/stars, but I am left wanting to know more. Way more. Especially about Alejandra Guzman, who I am officially convinced must be the Latin American hybrid of Courtney Stodden and Paz de la Huerta. Anyway, click onward to see some amazing sartorial displays.
So, let’s talk about the fashions at the Country Music Awards. Everyone thinks they should get a special dispensation because it’s the Country Music Awards and Nashville is where sparkle glitter was invented or something, but I say no! Taylor Swift still manages to look classy! So can you Miranda Lambert! And everybody else! Take a look at how they all fared.
Last night celebs, models and designers turned out to preview Versace’s new collaboration with H&M. But while the clothes coming down the runway were gorgeous, the ones on the backs of the audience were a mixed bag. Click through to see what we’re talking about.
Glamour held their 21st Annual Women of the Year Awards at Carnegie Hall last night, and some of the most bold-faced (female!) names in entertainment, politics, art, fashion, and social justice came out to show their support and recognize the often underrepresented causes that the Awards bring to light. Of course, with this many high-profile women in one place, we’ve got a pretty substantial amount of fashion to ogle. Here’s ten of the best, the worst, and the what-the-hell-was-she-thinking.
