Best of Cannes Red Carpet Part I

To be perfectly honest I don’t know much about the art of film so I wouldn’t be looking forward to Cannes every year this much if it wasn’t for the red carpet. But it’s so good, possibly the best in the world, that it would make even a chick flick superhero sequel fan (at least I’m not one) become obsessed with indie cinema. Since there are so many days and many beautiful looks, I divided it into half and here are all the best dressed of the first 5 days of Cannes Film Festival.


Best of MET Gala 2016

When I first heard about this year’s MET exhibition (and therefore, gala) theme, I was genuinely afraid. “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology” calls for a lot of misinterpretation or worse, a lot of taking things literally and dressing up like a robot (there are always a few who do this every single year and this year the award went to Zayn Malik, who, with those tin robot arms over his suit seriously looked like the tag-along friend of Gigi Hadid) so my hopes weren’t too high. And actually the first half hour or so was hinting at one of the most disappointing MET Galas ever, then there started to be a glimmer of hope with Alexa Chung, then Kendall Jenner, then Kate Bosworth, Naomi Campbell, Nicole Kidman, Kate Hudson, Zendaya, HAIM, Ciara and just when I was already pleasantly fulfilled, entered Beyonce. She was a dream in her floral embellished latex Givenchy gown, straight hair and black eyes, it was the most stylish she ever was on a red carpet and …


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 …
