VMA’s 2013

The VMA’s are always interesting. This year I wanted to either vomit or curl up in a ball and die of embarrassment for Miley. I have never liked her, but she pushed me over the edge this time. Ugh. I can’t even talk about it. I’ll just post this…photoIMG_6924

OK…now that I’m traumatized again thinking about that, I’m going to move onto my favorite part! Outfits!!!

Coco  Rocha – I sorta love her new hair, and I like that she went really casual, rocker chick because it totally fits with this event and her new hair! vma-mtv-2013-coco-rocha-red-carpet-ap__oPt

Rihanna – I don’t know if I love that Rihanna did though. She always looks so amazing and this just really is not…at all. I mean she still looks great, but it’s just boring.rihanna-2013-video-music-awards

Ciara – On one hand this is amazing…on the other, this is the weirdest event to wear this too. It’s kind of a little bit too dressy. Also, I’m pretty sure it’s not even covering her lady parts.ciara

Rita Ora – I actually kind of really like this even though it’s slightly over the top. She rocks it. I’m also in love with her hair.rita-ora-2013-vmas

Ellie Goulding – I love the studs and the dress…but I wish she did something fun with her hair!Ellie-Goulding-attends-the-2013-MTV-Video-Music-Awards-2222761

Lady Gaga – I am not sure about this…because it’s actually really normal for Lady Gaga so I’m feeling like its ok, but it kinda looks like a trash bag at the bottom.gaga VMA

Jennifer Hudson – I’m not the biggest fan of this outfit. It’s ok. Maybe it would be better if she took off the necklace? I also might like it better say if it was on Victoria Beckham? Thoughts?Jennifer-Hudson-2013-MTV-Video-Music-Awards-in-Christian-Dior--600x900

Zoey Deutch – There are things I like about this and things that I don’t. I feel like it depends on the angle that you are looking at it maybe. I love the color and the idea, but I think maybe it makes her look a little bit wide. 177928020-400x601

Crystal Reed – I love this dress, it just seems a little bit off for the VMAs. I feel like she should have done something a little bit more fun.Crystal-Reed-IN-Zac-Posen-2013-MTV-Video-Music-Awards-4-600x900

WORSTS:

Erin Wasson – This makes me really sad. I have no words. She obviously has a really great body, but this in no way shows it off in a good way. Just wear a bikini. Also, the head wrap? WTF?

erin

Little Kim – I’m really not sure where to start here…the shoes are hideous. I am not sure if she was trying to look like she got abducted by aliens…and if she was trying to make it look see-through as well…she also looks like a punked out sister-wive with that hair. Yuck.check_out_the_worst_dressed_celebs_of_mtv_vma_awards_2013

Miley Cyrus – She is like a Mariachi Band gone wrong. And this was obviously not the worst thing she did all night. I can’t even talk about her. Ugh, she’s terrible.

Miley-Cyrus

Sarah Hyland – She is usually so cute and this dress does nothing for her. It reminds me of Gladiator or something, but not in a good way.Sarah+Hyland+2013+MTV+Video+Music+Awards+Arrivals+U7cMzj5pQxIl

Joan Smalls – I do NOT like these boots or this dress at all. Neither one of them flatter her amazing body. Boo.tumblr_ms45zgTllH1r3ydyuo1_500

Katy Perry – This would almost be ok since it’s Katy, but that grill is terrible. It ruined the whole thing. Plus there’s the fact that Coco Rocha wore this at the Met Ball not that long ago. I’m not a hug fan of the print so it wouldn’t be on my best dressed anyway. At least she wore better shoes than the boots that Coco wore.2

BESTS :

Shailene Woodley – I love this girl! She looks so cute and I love that her outfit its young and fun! It’s perfect for her and this event.  (Emilio Pucci)Shailene Woodley

Allison Williams – I am becoming more and more obsessed with this girl. I love her style. She looks so cute in this Valentino dress. It’s just dressy enough that it fits her style perfectly, but just fun and cute enough because it’s short and lacey that it totally works for this event. I love her.02884111

Selena Gomez – This Versace dress is gorgeous! I love the detail! I don’t have a single bad thing to saw about this. Amazing!!!!top_6_the_best_dressed_of_mtv_vma_awards_2013

Taylor Swift – I LOVE this Herve Leger bandage dress on her. It fits her perfectly and I love what she did with her makeup and hair. I think this is my very favorite because of how it fits her and she’s finally branching out from her usual attire. I’m literally just obsessed. rs_634x1024-130825184000-634_tay_cm_825132013 MTV Video Music Awards - Arrivals

Oscar After Party Outfits

So usually I don’t really do a big post on the after-party outfits, but there were some pretty good ones for this year’s Oscars, so why not? I think most of the people who wore my favorite dresses for the show ended up wearing my favorites for the after parties also…For me my favorites were (and not necessarily in this order)…

1. Jennifer Lawrence

2. Naomi Watts

3. Amy Adams

4. Lily Collins

5. Kate Bosworth

6. Diane Krueger

7. Amanda Seyfriend

8. Nina Dobrev

I know that’s a lot, but there were so many good ones, and a lot of people who weren’t at the Oscars, but came after! Let me know who your favorites were!

Jennifer Lawrence in Calvin Klein; Ohmigosh I love this just as much as her Oscar dress. It’s fluid and gorgeous. Everything looks so good on her.oscars-afterparty-dresses-jennifer-lawrence-h724

Amy Adams in Oscar de la Renta; Wow…again…which one of her dresses do I like more? I guess when you’re nominated you get to pick from the best. Beautiful!oscars-afterparty-dresses-amy-adams-h724

Naomi Watts in Emilio Pucci; Absolutely love this too. She looked fabulous in both of her dresses tonight. Loved!oscars-afterparty-dresses-naomi-watts-h724

Anne Hathaway in YSL; I can’t decide if I like this dress better or worse than the one she wore to the show. This one doesn’t flatter her figure at all, but I like the color better. The other one was just so plain and blah. This one is just shapeless. I didn’t like her choices at all. Maybe she’s pregnant?anne-hathaway-oscars-after-parties

Selena Gomez in Versace; This isn’t really my favorite. I feel like she’s trying to look a lot older than she is. It’s a pretty dress, but I wish she would have worn something more fun and in a bright color!selenagomez

Lily Collins in Zuhair Murad; I love this! I love the two different prints and the color!lilycolins

Kate Bosworth in Giambattista Valli; Gorg! I am glad that she wore a short dress and I love her hair! One of my favs! kateb

Solange in Emilio Pucci; Love the dress! Hate the hair! It’s not bouncy enough…it looks like it’s falling over or else I would love it.solange

Natalie Portman in Dior; Simple and sweet and beautiful. She always looks perfect.natalieportman

Georgina Chapman in Marchesa; I love Marchesa…and if you can look this pretty when you’re pregnant…wow.georginachapman

Hilary Swank in Valentino; I really like this dress, but I would have picked something a little bit less heavy looking for a party. I mean it’s red and fun, and has the light material on top, but I think the train and the long sleeves makes it look a little bit heavier than I would like. It’s gorgeous though.oscars-afterparty-dresses-hillary-swank-h724

Olivia Munn in Marchesa; While I think the dress is pretty…It seems to be missing some pieces…lol (and I didn’t even show it from the side). The detailing is amazing though.2013 Vanity Fair Oscar Party Hosted By Graydon Carter - Arrivals

Kate Beckinsale in Monique Lhuillier; I love this look! So fun and not too serious. So perfect for a party!oscars-afterparty-dresses-kate-beckinsale-h724

Kourtney Kardashian in Brian Renne and Kim Kardashian in Donna Karen; honestly I don’t know how the Karsdashian’s get into anything important, but I think Kourtney is hilarious so I’ll forgive that…I do think her dress is a little bit too long though. If it was a bit shorter I would love it. Or even all the way to the floor would be better. I think that Kim’s fits better with the event. I don’t really like her white shoes. I think it would look better if they were gold. I just don’t know why she’s even there! oscars-afterparty-dresses-kardashian-sisters-h724

Miranda Kerr in Valentino; I think this dress is very different, but I like it! miranda-kerr-290

Elizabeth Banks in Alexander McQueen; Such a fun dress! I loved it! Orange is hard to pull off, but it looked beautiful. I love this material for spring. I did not really like her hair though. It was too high in the front and slicked on the sides. elizabeth-banks-290

Diane Krueger in Giambattista Valli; Ohmigosh I absolutely love this. I think it’s one of my favorites because it’s so different! It’s fun and cute, but sophisticated in a way also! I love actually love the width and sleeves.diane-kruger-290

Heidi Klum; Umm I don’t really know what to say about this, but I don’t like any of it…the dress, the cleavage, the hair…ugh. I think it makes her look chubby…and “The Body” is anything but.heidi-klum-290

Zooey Deschanel in Valentino; Usually I really like her funky style, but I didn’t like this. It looked like a sparkly sister wive.zooey-deschanel-290

Nina Dobrev in Naeem Khan; She is seriously so pretty. I swear everything looks good on her. I love this print.nina-dobrev-290

Amanda Seyfried in Givenchy; I’m in love with this dress that she performed in and then wore to the after parties! It totally stands out against her skin and I love the strappy details! amanda-seyfried-290

Britney Spears in Michael Cinco Couture; I actually like her hair brown here and the dress isn’t too bad either.britney-spears-290

Ginnifer Goodwin in Monique Lhullier; I love this whole look! Exactly what I would wear to a party!ginnifer-goodwin-290

Zoe Saldana in Givenchy; This almost reminds me of a nightgown of some sort, but I definitely like it more that the dress she wore earlier in the night. zoe-saldana-290

Grammy’s 2013

Oh I LOVE the Grammy’s! I think it’s the most fun awards show, because I love seeing all of my favorite people perform! I thought this year had some really great performances. Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood, JT and Jay-Z, Rihanna, Mumford and Sons, the tribute to Bob Marley with Sting, Elton John…so many good ones! I’m not even sure which was my favorite, because I thought they were all so good, with maybe the exception of LL Cool J at the end…wasn’t a huge fan of that, but I was surprised that he did pretty well as a host. I thought he would be kind of horrible…not too bad!

Anyway, onto my favorite part…the outfits! I also like the Grammy’s for this reason, because a lot of people have fun with their outfits instead of being sooo serious with them. I like that. However without Lady Gaga or Nicki Minaj I feel like they just weren’t quite as exciting this year as usual. There were a lot of good ones though…so here we go…

Allison Williams: I seriously love this girl. She always looks fantastic. I wish she had done something a little bit more exciting though. This dress is gorgeous, but the color is a little bit blah for this night. I would have liked to see her in something bright or even shorter.

The 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards - Arrivals

Karlie Kloss: I think she looks adorable. I love the color and her hair! Ohmigosh I wish I had her legs and body!

The 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards - Arrivals

Maria Menounos: I love her hair and makeup. I really like the shape of this dress, but for some reason I just can’t stop thinking about bananas…I wish it was more neon or just a different color.

The 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards - Arrivals

Alexa Chung: I think she is so cute too! She interviewed the red carpet for Fuse and she is darling! I love this dress, but not totally for an awards show. I feel like she could wear this any day…I wish she did something a little more glam.Alexa Chung

Beyonce: At first I saw the top and hated it, but when I found out it was pants I liked it a lot more. I give her props for not wearing a dress and going a different route than normal. Super simple and clean. Not sure if I would like it on someone else though. However, I don’t think it was dressy enough. It looks like something she could wear on any day. Beyonce Grammys

Natasha Bedingfield: At first I was going to put this in my worst dressed because I didn’t like the shape of it…but then I started to like it more and more. I don’t love the silver belt. I do like the fabric though. I think it depends on how you see her standing, whether or not you like the dress.Natasha Bedingfield grammys

Miranda Lambert: Her face is always perfect. This wasn’t my favorite dress. I don’t think it flatters her arms and the color is just ok. I do however love the dress she wore for her performance. I feel like that fits her personality so much better! Love the sparkle and pattern. The 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards - Red Carpet

Miranda performance

Kaley Cuoco: I really like this look. It’s chill, but fashionable and just something different. I would totally wear this.Kaley Cuoco Grammys

Kat Dennings: To be honest I don’t love this dress. I don’t think it’s the best color on her and I don’t love the length or the shoes she picked with it. I didn’t put it on my worst dressed though because for once her boobs are not totally hanging out and it looked a lot better on stage than on the red carpet.Kay Dennings grammys

Adele: As my friend said, I wish she hadn’t worn her grandma’s tablecloth…BUT it’s not black! So in a way I kind of like it. Redeeming qualities include…the shape of the dress. Her makeup and hair are perfect though. Put the whole thing together and made me like it more. #Valentino

Adele Grammys

Kelly Rowland: At first I LOVED this dress…the shape and the pattern on it, but then I realized that it wasn’t a pattern…it was cutouts and I didn’t like it as much. Up close, it was too much. She does look amazing though. The mermaid style bottom looked fantastic on her. I want her body.Kelly Rowland Grammys

Katy Perry: I actually really liked this dress and loved the color. This is my favorite color right now and it looked so good on her! I don’t think I would like it on anyone else though, and I’m not a huge fan of the jewels at the top. This is what I mean by doing something different though. Most people wouldn’t wear something like this, but it totally fits Katy. I liked it a lot. #GucciKaty Perry Grammys

Kelly Osbourne: I hate her stupid purple hair. Now that that’s out of the way, I thought she looked pretty good. I liked the simple black dress and simple hairstyle. She’s not my favorite person in the world, but she looks so good compared to what she used to look and dress like.Kelly Osbourne Grammys

Nicole Kidman: I’m not really a fan of the see-through bottom, but I think the dress other than that is really pretty and this color looks really good on her. #VeraWangNicole Kidman Grammys

Carly Rae Jepsen: I wish this dress had been green! Then I would have loved it. I felt like the black made it look a little bit goth with her makeup and dark hair. I think the dress is gorgeous though. I love the mermaid-ish look. I do wish it was like a tiny bit more hemmed though. It made her look short and like she was going to trip. I don’t love her hair. I wish she would have done it up. #RobertoCavalliThe 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards - Red Carpet

Nicole Richie: This was an after party dress, but I loved it so much that I had to post it on here with all the other ones. I LOVE the shape and fabric. She looks fabulous! I even like her hair slicked back like that. Almost a best dressed, but it kinda doesn’t count since it was after the show…Nicole Richie grammys

Estelle: Ok ok, the pattern is hideous, but I couldn’t put it on worst dressed, because look at the shape and the back! If this had been any other pattern or color I think I would have put it on my best dressed.

Estelle Grammys

WORSTS:

Jennifer Lopez: I want to throw up on this whole ensemble. I hate the stupid tight bun on her head. It didn’t work with the flowyness of the dress. Then…ummm the missing fabric? It’s not even a slit. It’s an entire chunk missing from the dress. I just didn’t think that it was flattering at all…and J.Lo can get away with a lot.

Jennifer Lopez Grammys

Kimbra: I’m not even going to talk about her hair. She must have gotten electrocuted before the show. Anyway, I do NOT like all of the weird guazy stips popping up everywhere all over the dress. I actually might have liked it if those had just not been on the dress. It looks like a Kleenez box attacked her.Kimbra Grammys

Janelle Monet: I think she looks like a little boy. This is not a femine suit. Plus it looks like she’s trying to be a matador. I don’t like the hat. It makes her little hair thing look weird.

Janelle Monet grammys

Alicia Keys: O Alicia, usually I love your outfits. I am not a fan of her slicked back hair with this dress. I thought it looked good with her performance dress, but not here. I don’t like the snake skin cut out top. It looks like it came from Halle Berry’s Catwoman outfit. Then the skirt made her hips look kind of big and popped back out funny at the bottom. It’s not the gradual “mermaid” look you want. It looked like it was squeezing her.Alicia Keys Grammys

Ashanti: First of all, I didn’t even know she was still around. But this dress should make her go back into hiding. I HATE the flower detail on it. I can’t tell if it’s supposed to be see-through or not. The top just isn’t flattering. I don’t like how high the slit was or the cutout right in the middle. It was just a bad choice.The 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards - Arrivals

Solange Knowles: Her hair is not ok. I usually love the fro she rocks, but it looks like it’s kind of going limp here. The color of the dress looks good on her, but something about it just isn’t flattering her body. Maybe it’s the cap sleeves or something. I just didn’t like any of it.The 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards - Red Carpet

BESTS:

Florence Welch: Ah my love! She’s just my favorite. Here is a green dress that completely works! I love this color with her hair. It’s fitted perfectly to her body. I don’t even mind the weird spikes that much because I just love this so much. #Givenchy

The 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards - Arrivals

Skylar Grey: This looks fantastic on her! I love the bright red and the shape. It’s beautiful.

Skylar Grey Grammys

Faith Hill and Tim McGraw: These two always look so perfect. I can’t get over her dress. I love the detail on top and I think it’s the cutest shape. I swear both of them get better looking every year. #JMendelFaith Hill grammys

Carrie Underwood: This surprised me a little bit because she rarely wears black, but I think she looks great. The dress is a little bit edgy so that’s different for her. Her hair and makeup are always perfect.  #RobertoCavalli Then for her performance, I wasn’t sure about the dress, but they started doing all of the cool light effects on it and I loved it. She is soooo good!

Carrie Underwood Grammys

carrie-underwood-hunter-haynes-grammys-2013-performance-watch-now-06

Taylor Swift: I think she gets better and better every year too. This is gorgeous. I love that she is looking more and more grown up all the time with her style. It’s elegant and I like the silver detail at the top a lot. I think this color looks great on her because she’s so fair too. It doesn’t wash her out though, even though she’s not super tan. #JMendelTaylor Swift grammys

Umm, also how fun was her performance. She puts on such a good show. I think she’s getting better at performances too. For a while she was kind of trying a little bit hard and now I feel like she knows the right balance.taylor-swift-grammys-2013-performance-watch-now-03

Rihanna: She won my best dressed last year too, but look at her! That color is phenomenal on her and I love how soft her whole look is. I love the flowing hair and dress. Hands down my favorite.

Rihanna grammysI also liked both of her performance outfits and songs. They were so good. I LOVED the white outfit she wore for the Bob Marley tribue. Totally fitting. She’s so small though! gty_rihanna_grammys_performance_stay_lpl_130210_vblogrihanna

Also…I can’t finish my post without a photo of these two. AMAZING!!! I love that Jay-Z just sat in his seat, walked on stage, performed, and went and sat back down. Yay, JT is back!161411105_justin_timberlake_jay_z
