It wasn’t all immaculately turned out Tilda Swintons and stunning Zoe Saldanas at the Screen Actors Guild Awards. No, there were some terrible fashions, too. And though some of these actresses may have won big at the SAGs, they definitely disappointed on the style front. Click through to find out who sagged at the SAGs.
It’s no mistake that the Critics’ Choice Awards come the day after the People’s Choice Awards. Celebs who don’t win the popular vote can drown their sorrows in the idea that perhaps, perhaps the critics adore them. But while the People’s Choice was a slightly less formal affair, the Critics, well, the Critics we dress up for. Find out who fared well and who critically missed the mark…
Thursday night, Sarah Jessica Parker, Courtney Love and a slew of other celebs turned out to fete legendary designer Valentino. They were also there to support the opening of his new virtual museum, the Valentino Garavani Virtual Museum, an online catalog of the designer’s many collections, available to anyone — to view, at least. This being high fashion, the clothes themselves are still prohibitively expensive, but last night’s turnout proved that just because you can buy something doesn’t mean you necessarily have the style chops to pull it off. See who succeeded, and who failed miserably, when it came to honoring Valentino’s divine talents.
It’s common knowledge that Olivia Wilde is roughly one billion times more attractive than your average human being (i.e. me). The girl is ridic stunning – glossy dark hair, long bronzed limbs, sea green eyes, feline features, cheekbones sharp enough to cut glass … the list goes on. I also must applaud Olivia for her sartorial choices – I don’t think I’ve ever seen her look anything less than goddess-worthy. She’s often the most gorgeous girl on the red carpet, but most importantly, Olivia dresses to kill. Click through for 16 of her best looks — plus, after the jump, the best looks worn by Solange Knowles, Mila Kunis, and Kate Winslet! Keep reading »
This past weekend, Brit music rag Q held its annual awards fest. There were new popsters (Jessie J) and old legends (Siouxsie Sioux) wandering around, and lots and lots of bad fashion. Let’s take a look, shall we?
Fashion’s glitterati turned out earlier this week for the opening of the Gucci Museum in Florence, Italy. Honoring all things Gucci, the museum serves as a tribute to the Italian design house’s esteemed vision and sartorial genius. But were the opening night attendees as well-tailored as the clothing in the museum? Let’s take a look.
When it comes to fashion, Vogue Editor in Chief Anna Wintour is probably the most powerful woman in the world. It’s not just that she commands the pages of one of the most-loved fashion mags, or that she conceived and developed Fashion’s Night Out, it’s that she oversees the Council of Fashion Designer of Americas Fund, which supports emerging young designers. To win Wintour’s discerning approval is akin to being granted the keys to the fashion kingdom, and what she says absolutely goes on the pages of Vogue and beyond. So, we thought we’d take a moment to examine Wintour’s personal sartorial musings. How does the Queen of All Clothing actually dress? What can we learn from her style rules?
