Best of the Glamour 2014 Women of the Year Awards Red Carpet

11 Nov

Glamour hosted their annual Women of the Year Awards and the recipients include women from a variety of professions including actors, philanthropists and designers. The red carpet is awash with party dress chic and here are our picks from the night.

Mindy KalingBeaded 1960s inspired decadence from Mindy Kaling and she is wearing a custom-made frock by Mindy Project costume designer Salvador Perez to celebrate being named one of Glamour’s Women of the Year. It is bold, colorful, sparkly and fun; all the aspects that make up Mindy Kaling’s on and off screen style. This is how you go short at an event like this (and Perez and Kaling talk about the design process here).

LupitaMindy is not the only honoree opting for above the knee and Glamour cover star Lupita Nyong’o wears yet another incredible ensemble to add to her year of red carpet highs. Queen Lupita seems more accurate and here she is wearing an embellished Chanel Couture dress paired with Kurt Geiger metallic nude pumps.

Laverne CoxGoing for something slightly longer is another Glamour Woman of the Year and Orange is the New Black’s Laverne Cox has got a velvet train and curls going on. This is a softer look than Cox tends to go for on the red carpet and the electric blue color is incredible on her.

Keri Russell GlamourKeri Russell’s penchant for leather continues and she is serving up 70s rock band realness here with an outfit that wouldn’t look out of place at a Runaways gig. Wearing a leather J. Mendel jumpsuit Russell presented Dr. Sylvia Earle with her award. Earle has spent over 50 years exploring, studying and striving for better understanding/protection of ocean habitats.

Coco RochaOpting for a menswear approach is supermodel Coco Rocha in this simple, but effective almost all black ensemble; adding a touch of glitz with gold toe capped loafers (that I am now coveting).

Amy SchumerMore metallics and Amy Schumer has the end of year (okay it is only November) party style down as this is the perfect time for silver shoes and a strapless dress like this. This is how you do winter florals.

Judith LightOh hey Judith Light! I am pretty much in awe of everything Light does and so I’m totally ignoring the so-so shoes and embracing the Stella from The Fall satin blouse. The design on the skirt is beautiful and this is a whole lot of secretary chic.

Best of the 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards Red Carpet

3 Jun

The annual CFDA Fashion Awards were held at the Lincoln Center in New York yesterday (June 2) celebrating those who have made an outstanding contribution to American fashion. Actors, models and singers attended the event dressed in creations designed by the winners and nominees and here is a look at our favorites from this event.

Greta Gerwig and Zac PosenGreta Gerwig poses with designer Zac Posen in a stunning long sleeve tangerine dress by Zac Posen and while her How I Met Your Dad project is no more (and really Gerwig was the main reason I would have watched this show) I am very excited to see what is next for her. I hope this bad TV experience won’t put Gerwig off future television projects, though I expect network TV has been soured for now.

SolangeSolange looks super sexy in shimmery silver Calvin Klein Collection, which is giving off Old Hollywood vibes with a dash of ’70s disco. I am super into bright pink lip color at the moment and this pop of color gives this look a contemporary feel.

Coco RochaBringing the drama is Coco Rocha in a Christian Siriano gown (and posing with the designer and I’m momentarily mesmerized by his shoes). This is a stunning and elegant design and the embroidered monochrome skirt is enhanced by the off the shoulder sleeved black bodice. Add a cigarette holder and this has Audrey Hepburn flashes.

Liya KebedeWearing a white Wes Gordon shirt and a skirt that makes me think of chemistry class (I might be the only who sees this print and pictures atoms and molecules) in the best possible way is model Liya Kebede. This is one of those looks that is super stylish and effortless; it’s happens to be on the least showy end and yet it is also one of the standouts.

Busy PhilipsBusy Philipps looks stunning and statuesque in a red Honor halter dress complete with a custom Irene Neuwirth necklace – Neuwirth won for accessory design – and matching ring. The ruffled neck sets this dress apart from other red gowns like this that tend to go for a bow option (see Nicole Kidman and Emma Stone).

Brie Larson DVFI have loved this gold star print Diane von Furstenberg dress since I first saw it on the runway back in February (it sadly didn’t fit in with this Alana Bloom fantasy costuming piece) and I’m so glad to see how good Brie Larson looks in this frock.

Keri RussellWhile this might look a tad like a mint-green sheet has found its way onto this Rosie Assoulin gown, I really like this ethereal Grecian touch and it goes beyond just another plain monochrome getup. Keri Russell tends to stick with simple designs and this is still in her usual wheelhouse with an added embellishment and she’s pulling this look off.

For a list of the winners head here.
