Tonight, Lupita Nyong’o not only outdid herself or everyone else on the red carpet but she also outdid ANY dress that will make appearance on any red carpet ever again. She wore the ultimate fancy frock, the most beautiful dress in the history of dresses. Francisco Costa, designer of Calvin Klein, created this mesmerizing mermaid gown using 6,000 pearls and my god, it is breathtaking. Not only will it go down in history as one of the best looks of Academy Awards, but most probably also be displayed in a museum some day. My all time can-do-no-wrong star Naomi Watts came in second, if not for Lupita could have easily been no 1, stunned in a grey printed deep cut halterneck Armani Privé dress with a bralette detail from the side and back. 50 Shades of Grey star Dakota Johnson was also one of the hits in a sleek red Saint Laurent (Christian would have looooved it) with the most perfect one shoulder detail I’ve ever seen in my life.

Unfortunately, it was a boring night with a boring red carpet and an even more boring award show. I need MET Gala for some glamor to my soul.
I’m not a usual sucker for celebrity and socialite style especially with candid shots and street style but when it comes to party looks, they know what they are doing. Here are my favorite 25 party looks from galas, gallery openings, cocktails, red carpets, weddings, award shows and so on – all from 2014, all gorgeous and more importantly all will inspire you to get together your holiday party looks. May 2015 bring us all the glory we need to look half as good.
Sorry guys, Brad is right. Your dads were, and still are the original hipsters. They do things before and after they are cool, which makes them the most admirable, self-confident, sought after person in your life. They are your rock, and in some cases, your super cool rock.
They say that if you see enough Rosie Assoulin or Calvin Klein gowns before you go to bed, the fashion fairy would leave money under your pillow for you to go buy beautiful stuff. Same goes with this year’s official style icon Rihanna’s boobs. Seriously, you have to read more to see her look.
