2015 BEST DRESSED GOLDEN GLOBES RED CARPET

posted by Elshane on Jan 11 2015, under Life of a Stylist

Lupita Nyong'o is wearing a Giambattista Valli haute couture dress, Christian Louboutin shoes, a Judith Leiber bag, and Chopard jewelry.

Finally femininity hits the carpet in the form of whimsy florals! I have always despised the dreaded and overly done feminine full skirt ball gown. This is the perfect replacement look. 

Amal Clooney is wearing a Dior couture dress, Harry Winston jewelry, and her own gloves.

I have melted and gone to arm candy heaven. I will have fashion dreams about this moment tonight in my deep fashionable sleep.

Emma Stone is wearing a Lanvin jumpsuit,Christian Louboutin shoes, a Lanvin clutch, Lorraine Schwartz earrings, and Ofira rings.

This look is very average without the bow. But this "bow moment" puts Emma at the top of her class. This is "bad a$$ bossy boo right here!

Melissa McCarthy is wearing her own clothing line, a highly anticipated line not yet launched to the public.

Despite her loosing double digits of lbs, she's still a plus-sized chica. And a plus-sized chica rocking a menswear-inspired look, while still maintaining a true air of femininity? Home. Run.

MET GALA 2015: BEST DRESSED

posted by Elshane on May 4 2015, under Life of a Stylist

Rihanna in Guo Pei.

Yellow! But of course. Rihanna is the Queen of the Chinese night! The color yellow has been inseparably linked to the Chinese culture for over 5,000 years. It was worn by the earliest ancestor of the Chinese race, Huangdi, aka the Yellow Emperor. There is the Yellow River, Yellow Plateau and of course Yellow Fever (but not exclusively Chinese). {Thanks to my dear friend Tina Craig from BagSnob for the China History 101.}

 

Diane Kruger in Chanel Couture.

Diane stole my heart with her sheer sequin pants plus sash and beaded top. She reminds me of a China Doll that should be forever perched on my bookshelf (or in my closet). Effortless, on theme, and not overdone. 

Georgia May Jagger in Gucci.

We were all fearful for the overdone Chinese-themed ensembles that this years MET Ball theme, Chinese Whispers, would bring. We cringed when we pictured the likes of the Katy Perry-esque costume moment in an overdone high bun with chopsticks and kimono of sorts...leaning on offensive and low brow. 

Georgia May went there...she definitely went there...but in all the right ways. Her Gucci look is obviously Chinese in theme, yet couture in nature. The colors and patterns of the wrap, the slight obi sleeve, and the perfectly paired lace-up pump is exactly what I needed for my dose of Chinese art. And that hair? Head to toe perfection!

Beyoncé in Givenchy.

Gulp!!!!! Speechless. {Girl stole my bi-monthly hairdo though). It's hard to even describe what I like about this look because she simply looks so smoking hot. The application of the jewels around the neckline and naval are a plus. I'm just hypnotized.

Justin Bieber in Balmain.

A slim man can do no wrong in a Mandarin Collar. I have an entire rack of them freshly pressed in my man's closet at all times. Bieber seems to have taken note. Respect the collar (and the intricate cummerbund)!

He could have done without the sunnies, but then again, it's Bieber! 

Kendall Jenner in Calvin Klein Collection.

The simplicity yet intricacy of this gown is stunning. Calvin Klein strikes again with the perfect simple sexy gown that they seem to nail decade after decade {who can forget Kate Moss' ultimate Calvin gown moment in the 90's}.

 I have a feeling we will be seeing more of this lace-up side boob detail on gowns, dresses, and tops emerging from designers high and low for seasons to come.

Allison Williams in Giambattista Valli.

It's no wonder that Allison would land on my best dressed list after I named Rihanna as my best dressed in her similar Valli gown from the Grammys this year. 

There's a time and a place for certain silhouettes, like an over-explosive ball skirt...and this was the time and the place for Allison!
