14 Best and Worst Dressed of Golden Globes 2015

BEST

1. Emma Stone

Prediction based on this ensemble: Emma Stone will be THE Manic Pixie Dream Girl of 2015.

2.. Kate Hudson

Kate Hudson in Atelier Versace and Forevermark jewelry.

Stomach slits and a plunging neckline rarely amount to good taste, but Kate Hudson and the seasoned pros at Atelier Versace make it more than work in this sleek white gown.

3. Sienna Miller

Embellishment inspired by magical fairy wonderlands done right. Sienna Miller would be a magnificent wood nymph.

4. Julianne Moore

Although accepting an award on Alzheimers, Julianne Moore did not forget how to dress. I wish I could say the same for the rest of Hollywood.

5. Chrissy Teigen

If you look up “jaw droppingly gorgeous”, a picture of Chrissy Teigan’s 2015 Emmy dress should appear. Simultaneously sophisticated and sexy, this sheer floor length stunner is sensuality embodied.

6. Lupita Nyong’o

Showing off her toned shoulders with a strapless neckline, Lupita looks gorgeous in royal purple yet again. I love the lush layers of fabric and color blending.

7. Felicity Jones

The new old look: a classic Dior silhouette is modernized with a deep emerald wash.

Worst

1. Claire Danes

Claire Dane’s odious Golden Globes outfit is the unwanted offspring of a tacky scarf and frumpy dress.

2. Keira Knightley

In a recent interview, Keira Knighley said it took 30 people to create this Chanel monstrosity. 30 people should be fired losing their jobs right about now. Also, who thought “there aren’t enough butterflies already in this look, let’s add a butterfly clutch”? Because that person should look into another field. Maybe one in an actual field.

3. Maggie Gyllenhal

Maggie Gyllenhaal in Miu Miu.

Could Maggie Gyllenhall not find anyone to lend her jewelry? Like you didn’t want to slap anything, anything at all for a major televised awards show?

4. Melissa McCartney

Who is the genius that put Melissa McCarthy in ruffles and a massive freaking bow? She’s a full figured woman, not a toddler.

5. Robin Wright

Is Robin Wright depressed? Is Ralph Lauren depressed? I’m genuinely concerned. This is concerning.

6. Jemima Kirk

An albino bat crashed the red carpet.

7. Tea Length Triple Terror

Julianna Margulies

Julianna whipped this look up from some old curtains in her spare time because she’s really into DIY right now.

Tiny Fey

Kerry Washington

Kerry Washington looks like an actual angel, which makes whoever put her in this tea length color blocked eyesore at minimum a lesser demon.

You don’t do ankle length with petite women and this is why: it cuts them off. Down with dressing adult women like American Dolls.

Style Spotting: Nicole Scherzinger

asbydfpants

Last week, Nicole Scherzinger was spotted looking fierce in AsbyDF Sam Stretch Leather Pants. The Pussy Cat Doll, multiplatinum solo artist, and X-Factor judge practically purred in this deliciously decadent pair of ribbed, 100% stretch lambskin pants.

Flexible for comfort and form-fitting for major sex appeal, these beauties rest easy with a mid-low rise. What takes these leather pants to the next level is distinctive detailing: accordion moto paneling over the left pocket and knees and gold zippers over left knee, at front leg bottoms & on back pockets. 

Saunter into stylehaus and try on a pair stat!

How Anna Dello Russo made and lasted it

anna2

I’ve got endless adoration for Anna Dello Russo, The Editor At Large (isn’t that a fabulous term?) and Creative Consultant for Vogue Japan. Anna Dello Russo’s genius lies not just in her infamous sense of aesthetic but in her longevity.

After spending an idyllic childhood in the Southern Italian City of Bari, young Anna went to (where else?) Milan, where she studied Design at the Elite Domus Academy and set herself apart as a distinct hybrid of creative and intellectual gifts.

Not content with studying only one subject, Anna returned to Bari and enrolled in a Masters program, eventually earning an M.A. in Italian Literature and Art History and sealed her fate of becoming a dazzling conversationalist.

There’s a wry old Hollywood saying that I’ve found pretty damn accurate.

The 3 Rules Of Making It

1. Have Talent

2. Know the right people

3. Be fun to be with.

anna3

Anna had those rules down pat. She used them to rule Condé Nast Italia for 18 years with an impeccably manicured fist, first as fashion editor of Vogue Italia and as editor of L’Uomo Vogue. Today I’m totally channeling Anna Dello Russo (Italy’s answer to Anna Wintour) and keeping my focus as sharp as my wits. 

Anna’s move from Italian Vogue to Japanese Vogue was a bold and somewhat controversial choice. ‘Editor at Large’ is a position that can be interpreted one of two ways. 

The 2 Unspoken But Widely Accepted Definitions Of Editor At Large 

1. Famous and respected tastemaker who can’t be bothered with the nitty-gritty of running a magazine, instead focusing on being photographed looking fabulous, dolling out memorable quotes to fawning reporters, and enjoying the glam life.

2. Politely put to pasture. 

annar1

I think it’s obvious which kind of Editor At Large Anna Dello Russo has turned out to be. When Anna made the move to Japanese Vogue, she used the freedom and lack of obligation that comes with being an Editor At Large to stealthily and stylishly infiltrate the buzzing Wasp next that is online media.

If Anna Wintour is the icon you want to worship from a distance, Anna Dello Russo is the legend you want as a mentor and cocktail hour companion. Anna Wintour can keep her gravitas; Anna Dello Russo has got charisma. Which she used to charm the pants off new media’s haute high priests, becoming a favorite subject of the street style photography megastars such as The Sartorialist and Jak & Jil. Anna used her strengths to straddle two very difficult and very different fashion stratospheres: New Media & Print Empire.

The 3 Rules Of Making And Lasting It

1. Catch & Keep The Spotlight 

Anna Dello Russo is notorious for cutting edge to the point of crazy outfits. Lady Gaga is basically a tacky Anna Dello Russo impersonator sans Anna’s taste and sense of humor. 

2. Never Offend The People Who Pay You

Conde Nast MADE Anna Dello Russo, and Anna Dello Russo has never strayed. If you find a good boss who supports, respects, and pays you right, show loyalty and watch the world open up for both of you. 

3. Use Change To Your Advantage

Play up your strengths!

AnnaDelloRusso

Anna Dello Russo has been in the game for a long, long time. So long that I will not say out of politeness. Yet she still manages to be the coolest fashion chick in any town.

How?

By building upon the strengths she’d been developing for years. Instead of ignoring, then clumsily copying, the Street Style Epidemic, Anna recognized its potential. Everyone whose anyone had been gossiping about Anna’s ensembles for as long as she could remember, and she played into their fascination by dressing to shock and awe. Why not let the world have a look?

5 Celebrities Who Love The Nude Heel Trend

I dare you to walk around nude.

Neutral heels have long been a staple to savvy starlets and sanguine stylists who appreciate their many charms. The understated shoe goes with anything and elongates every type of leg with a slimming, statuesque, and sophisticated effect. Last month alone, bombshells such Blake Lively, Alessandra Ambrosio, and Miranda Kerr were spotted out and about in nude heels.

It’s no coincidence that all of those ladies are models and frequently followed by paparazzi; they know from experience that a nude heels photograph beautifully. Day or night, work or play, Summer or Fall, a pair of neutral heels will never fail to flatter.

If you’re looking for a worthy investment or flexible footwear, look no further than this season’s hottest heel hue.

5 Celebrities Who Love The Nude Heel Trend

Call Kanye what you like (the rest of us certainly do), Yeezy got unmistakable style; no other rapper has embraced high fashion with Kanye West’s enthusiasm or honed sensibility for luxury goods.

Refusing to be defined by classic good looks, Johnny Depp uses his Gemini flexibility and charisma to take on the personality of wild and utterly original character. Only a Gemini like Johnny could do Jack Sparrow, Sweeney Todd, and Edward Scissor Hands with equal aplomb.

7. Lucy Hale

Lucy Hale might be the youngest of our chic Geminis, but she’s already a force to be reckoned with. Her edgy yet feminine style and ingenue aura pull millions to ABC Family’s hit show Pretty Little Liars.

Prince began as a musical and fashion pioneer and rules on as a living legend.
