This year’s award season has been nothing short of amazing — thanks mostly to Lupita Nyong’o, just saying. But overall there weren’t too many misses and plenty of hits at the Golden Globes, Screen Actors Guild, NAACP Image, and Academy Awards. We’ve made our picks for the best red carpet fashions this season, but here’s your turn to weigh in. Click through and tell us who you think were the best dressed stars on the red carpet this award season.
When it comes to exuding effortless style, designer Rachel Roy always gets it right. And when she showed up to a screening of “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2” in New York City a few weeks ago, she looked absolutely great in a simple winter chic look. By taking winter staples and mixing in a few trendy pieces, she shows us just how to create a fabulous look high on fashion without over doing it. See how you can create Rachel Roy’s stylish look for less with just three pieces.
Like most of us, celebrities make poor fashion choices from time to time. But unlike most of us, celebrities have deep enough pockets to not only purchase the best clothes, but pay stylists to tell them exactly what the best clothes are. So why is it that some stars make fashion mistakes over and over, year after year? We have no clue. But what we do know are fifteen examples of high-paid stars that have made a habit of making worst dressed lists, despite having the means not to.
With an expansive film and television career, Kerry Washington isn’t just an uber-talented actress (who isn’t awaiting the star’s return as the feisty Olivia Pope in the hit series “Scandal”?) she’s also a passionate humanitarian fighting to protect the arts along with progressing women’s rights. No wonder she’s made Donna Karen’s Women Who Inspire list. But while we all love to see Kerry command the silver screen, it is her red carpet moments and fabulous photo shoots (how hot did she look in the July issue of Vogue Italia?) that often steal the show. Always so poised, this Bronx, New York native is nothing short of being fierce. Although there are so many, check out a few of our favorite fashion moments from the sultry screen siren.
It happens all the time. We see celebrities wearing the most outrageous outfits, make-up and accessories. Instead of saying, “That’s inappropriate”, or “What on earth are they wearing?” We say, “That’s her style” or “She looks hot”. Meanwhile, we all know that if your average Jane Doe wore that down the street, eyes would rolling like bowling balls, and the word “rachet” would be used as much as a box of Kleenex. So what have some celebrities been wearing that would be committing social suicide in the real world? Here’s a look at some recent looks that only celebrities could get away with:
When it comes to identifying the first influential person in our lives, many of us credit our mothers. After all, she’s the women capable of doing everything—keeping her household together, taking care of all her children, making sure the bills are paid and preparing healthy meals—all while maintaining a career and keeping herself well put together. She’s the master of balance, a ‘Rockmom’ of sorts. This term coined by June Ambrose, who is the quintessential example of a ‘Rockmom’ describes how being a mother doesn’t mean one has to sacrifice her personal style while conquering the world and taking care of her children. As we prepare to honor and show appreciation for all the ‘Rockmoms’ in our lives, let’s take a look at some of the most stylish celebrity mothers who rock out in motherhood.
When it comes to implementing a little color into our wardrobes, some of us can be a little hesitant. But once you find the right hue for your skin, there should be no stopping you… Check out the celebrities who aren’t afraid to be seen in green or any other shade.
Tia and Tamera
Remember these ladies? Well, besides starring on “Sister, Sister” in the 90′s, they have come full circle with their wardrobe. They are showing off their new Spring promo looks for Season 2 of ”Tia and Tamera,” premiering in June. This season, the reality show chronicles everything from Tamera’s new marriage to Tia’s career as a now working mother. Spring has sprung for sure!
Nicki Manaj always knows how to steal the show with her outrageous fashion and she did it again at the American Music Awards in the Louis XIV ensemble. This is definitely a look that you can take to your next formal soiree, with the gorgeous black lace bodice and gathered chartreuse silk skirt. Pink wig is optional. Here’s how to do it for less:
You ever heard the saying “money can’t buy you taste?” I often was reminded of that as I watched Mary J. Blige come up in the game. As she became more and more famous, it was clear that her fashion sense couldn’t keep up. Today, Ms. Blige has found her stride when it comes to her style (hey, she’s been in the game nearly 20 years so she has little excuse).
These days, there’s no excuse for a celeb to look consistently bad. Why? Because they have stylists to do all their shopping, curating and dressing for them. The average person has nobody but herself so what gives with some of these celebs? We’ve included just a few of the fashion violaters out there. Mind you, we can’t include folks like Lil Kim cuz she’s beyond help as well all know.
I honestly can’t remember the last time I looked at Christina Aguilera and thought, that’s a pretty girl. Oh yeah, I do. It was about the time that her first hit single Genie In A Bottle came out. She was the posterchild for cute and talented circa 1999. But when it her second album came out, it was obvious that Aguilera was embracing the dirty, trashy look. Since then, she hasn’t managed to look classy at all. I mean, EVER. A stylist is supposed to save you from embarrassing yourself, not push your own convoluted interpretations of style to the limits. I often think that when Aguilera was interviewing stylists, she just hired the person who most agreed with the fact that the look she was sporting in “Dirty” was chic. Not only does she need to fire her stylist but she also needs a beauty expert to correct that overly blonde and ratty hair.
Some celebrities play it safe while others are known for taking fashion risks. They’ve embraced fashion as an art and means of expressing themselves.
Mixing and matching colors and prints, experimenting with new trends and daring to wear bold colors are only a few ways these celebrities have taken fashion risks; in turn they’ve become trendsetters encouraging others to try different styles, patterns, and trends.
Following in the footsteps of past fashion icons like Grace Jones, Diana Ross, and Chaka Kahn, who weren’t afraid to take fashion risks, these celebrities are sure to leave a mark in fashion.
