Best of 2016 Academy Awards Red Carpet

It seems a little superficial to talk about a red carpet of an event so powerful of political and humanitarian messages from beginning to end but I am not knowledgeable enough to pen anything about those issues so I can’t do anything but supporting every single one of them with all my heart and move on to where I know a thing or two: fashion. All in all it was a really good red carpet; though my hopes were SO ridiculously high after the award season that I was a little bit let down. Brie Larson for one was a disappointment in my opinion, after her stunning Golden Globes and SAG gowns, this Gucci piece was just too prom-y for me with that belt and frills (but she is present on this post because the top of the dress was gorgeous and, well, winner). Olivia Wilde, likewise, looked terrible in her Valentino – superfluous choker, saggy boobs, bad proportion of straps – the only good thing about it was the back but she is also …

Best of 2016 BAFTAs

Just a month and a half in 2016 and I’ve already made more red carpet posts than I usually make in a year. I guess it shouldn’t come as a surprise since, like how every 4 years there’s the Olympics or the leap day, every two or three years we have a Cate Blanchett putting in an appearance, sweeping away the whole event(s) and this year is that year. And when that outing corresponds to many red carpet hits of newbie Alicia Vikander (and in this case, Dakota Johnson) then it’s an event to talk about. Here are my 15 best looks from 2016 BAFTAs.

Best of 2016 SAG Awards Red Carpet

Some years are like the tree that keeps on giving; many good movies that could win at the Oscars, strong red carpets one after the other making it really hard to choose a favorite, new albums, exciting festivals, great exhibitions, collections and so on. It’s a little early to label a year as a good one but even the swoon worthy red carpet performances of new comers Brie Larson and Alicia Vikander is reason enough to get excited. They seem like they can do no wrong and together with veterans like Naomi Watts, Claire Danes, Kristen Wiig (and hey where’s Cate Blanchett?!) plus already established red carpet goddess Laverne Cox, risk taker Nicole Kidman (even though that Gucci looks a little borrowed on her I really appreciate someone having the balls to bring that fun collection on the red carpet) and “thank god she finally opted for a classic minimal Narciso Rodriguez and nailed it after years of disappointment” Amanda Peet – it’s hell of an award season to watch. Here are my 50 favorite …

Best of 2016 Critics’ Choice Awards

I know, in the land of internet, two day old news is as good and relevant as two year old news but I simply couldn’t let go of Alicia Vikander‘s dreamy Mary Katrantzou dress at Critics’ Choice awards and wanted it to eternally be a part of The Fashion Medley. Rachel McAdams‘ burgundy Elie Saab, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley‘s Saint Laurent and Kirsten Dunst‘s Chanel are also good enough to make you wonder if they were dressed THIS good for Critics’ Choice, which let’s be honest isn’t an event everyone cares about, what will they look like at the Academy Awards?! 2016 started to kick red carpet’s ass.

73rd Golden Globe Awards Red Carpet

A pleasantly surprising Golden Globe red carpet hit the screens of our tvs, phones and twitters last night, and since I still haven’t watched most of the nominated movies and tv series yet, my whole entire focus was on the red carpet yesterday (ok, it was half and half between the Packers game and the red carpet). It was a hundred percent glamour with around 20 percent safe play, 10 percent cliché, 5 percent bad looks and almost zero disasters. Alicia Vikander was one of the first to arrive and managed to remain my favorite till the very end in a heavenly – maybe a little maid like – Louis Vuitton that only she could rock that good. Brie Larson, Kirsten Dunst, Rooney Mara, Zendaya, Heidi Klum and many more were among my favorites (all the looks I show here by themselves and not in a gallery are on my best dressed list) but I have to make a special shout out to Jennifer Lopez, who fairly glowed in a mustard yellow, surprisingly covered up, …
