Favorite Emmy Red Carpet Picks

20 Sep

This years Emmy’s were quite elegant. I have to say I absolutely loved all of the red sand blues. The silver and whites made a great old Hollywood vibe on the red carpet as did the darker colors.

Sofia Vergara looked breath taking in her coral Vera Wang gown. Modern Family co-star went with a goddess look that complemented her fellow co-star Sofia’s look nicely. Glee star Lea Michele wore on of my favorite looks of the night. A floor-length red Marchesa scoop-back gown. Nina Dobrev wore my second favorite pick of the night. Her hair match the lines of the strapless red Donna Karan floor-length gown perfectly. The train was true Hollywood red carpet style and I loved watching her walk the red carpet. Nina paired a Judith Leber clutch along with a Neil Lane Jewelry and Brian Atwood shoes. Kate Winslet wore the perfect red for her coloring. A Elie Saab bandage dress was a great choice for Kate and looked flawless on the carpet.

Julia Stiles looked picture perfect with light accessories and her stunning silver strapless Georges Hobeika Couture gown. Jane Kravkowski looked chic in her silver lame J.Mendel gown. Hedi Klum supported one of her own by wearing Christian Siriano. I loved Christina Hendricks Sydney designer Johanna Johnson gown. This look was one of my favorites. It suited her coloring and personality perfectly. Well done Christina! Julia Margulies was dressed like a winner. Accepting her award in white strapless Armani Prive.

My favorite look in white was the lovely Aubrey Plaza in her white floor-length Jaun Carlo Obando gown. It brings a Hampton’s meet Hollywood feel and I just love the high neck mixed with the ruffles. Well done Aubrey!

Emily Blunt and Minka Kelly wore two of my favorite looks, yes I know I have quite a few. However you have to admit it was hard to pick this year. Minka Kelly brought the lace to the red carpet in her navy long-sleeve Dior. Funny Amy Poehler was taking her fashion statement serious this year with her bold sparkly blue Peter Sorn gown. Claire Danes followed the bold sparkly statement with her strapless Oscar de la Renta floor-length gown. Katie Holmes brought a relaxed look to the carpet with her blue Calvin Klein but I think she rocked it and it suits her style in every way. Way to stay true to yourself Katie!

Olivia Munn gets my favorite out of the box color award. She looks almost radiant as she walks down the red carpet in her green Carolina Herrera Spring 2012 Collection. I love this shade of green on her coloring as well as her hair color and style, it allows her natural beauty to shine through. She is truly wearing this dress in no way is this dress wearing her. Love the look Olivia!

Kristen Wiig wears an amazing chocolate plunging neckline gown by Zac Posen which I am in love with. Gwyneth Paltrow looks amazing and get my out-of-the-box style award. This Pucci cut-out lace dress looks amazing on Gwyneth. Julia Bowen beamed in her plunging v-neck Oscar de la Renta. Melissa McCarthy also rocked a custom long-sleeved deep purple Oscar de la Renta. Kelly Osbourne looked adorable in her J Mendel gown.

What a sparkly lady Evan Rachel Wood was is this Elie Saab gown. This dress looked amazing on her and the train is to die for. Her hair truly seals the deal for me. Mmmuahh perfection! Please tell me what you think? Who do you love?

Fixie Nation Photo Shoot June 2011

7 Sep

Here is one of my favorite pictures from a photo shoot I styled and modeled for. As many of you may have noticed there is a huge fixie trend taking over so I decided to try out a few new photos for this fixie trend. I love how people are expressing themselves through their fixie bikes. Whether its colorful rims or tires each rider finds a way to show they are unique by building their own bike however they see fit. I love the flat black color choice for this bike because it has a multi-color chain and sticker which spells LOVE and  these colors truly pop because of her choice of black. Thanks Love for letting us use “Pepper” (name of bike) Be sure to show off your own Fixie style on http://www.fixienation.com and make a profile for all to see!!!
