Fashion Week Favorites: 2015 Golden Globes

No matter how much we like to devilishly dish on the serious red carpet fashion fails each season, we really just want to see some serious style, that keeps us talking (in a good way) until next year. Lucky for us, this year’s 72nd Golden Globes Awards and the red carpet didn’t disappoint…in fact, we were surprised at how many amazingly gorgeous looks graced the carpet and had us breaking down every aspect of their memorable look. End of the night takeaway? Elegant and classic is always the way to go.

Fashion Week Favorites: Best Dressed at 2014 Oscars

While the overcast, rainy weather threatened to put a damper on the celebrity arrivals at the 2014 Oscars last night, we were pleasantly surprised to see the clouds part for some seriously gorgeous red carpet fashions, along with memorable moments during the award show as well, brought to you by the genius host, Ellen DeGeneres…can we say “selfie”?

kate hudson oscars 2014

Hello gorgeous! While Kate Hudson was one of the last to walk the red carpet at Oscars, she made her impact in a truly memorable way, wearing a bejeweled Atelier Versace gown and cape.

lupita oscars 2014

12 Years of Slave Best Actress Winner Lupita Nyong’o earned her spot on the best dressed list once again, with a Nairobi blue custom Prada number inspired by champagne bubbles and matching headband.

jennifer lawrence oscars 2014

Adding a needed pop of color to the Oscars, Jennifer Lawrence looked red hot in Dior. Given her history of clumsiness, Lawrence admitted she even “did a stair test” in the gown before the event. (see her 2013 ‘best dressed’ look, also in Dior)

cate blanchett oscars 2014

Excuse us while we pick our jaws up off the floor. The ‘Blue Jasmine’ actress Cate Blanchett gave serious credibility to the evening’s ‘sparkly neutrals’ trend, in an Armani Prive floor-length gown.

charlize theron oscars 2014

Making an appearance in our red carpet recap once again, Charlize Theron knows how to rock $15 million in Harry Winston jewels and a seriously deep v-neckline gown, this time in Dior. (see her 2013 ‘best dressed look’)

brad pitt angie oscars 2014

Best Dressed Couple….goes to Brad Pitt in a dapper tux and Angelina Jolie dripping in shimmer in Elie Saab Haute Couture.

Best Moments:

If the stunning fashions weren’t enough to keep you entertained for hours, how about the hilarious monologue and moments by host Ellen DeGeneres!

pizza oscars 2014

Pizza, anyone? Ellen surprised everyone by staying true to her word and delivering pizza straight to the celebrities in their seats. Brad Pitt helped hand out plates, while Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Jared Leto and Harrison Ford enjoyed a slice (or two). We are guessing that pizza guy will be adding this to his resume.

selfie oscars 2014

Let’s take a selfie. See, celebrities are just like us, even at the most glamorous awards show of the year. Ellen organized a quick selfie pic (it was Meryl’s first selfie!) to break a Twitter RT record and in the process, actually broke Twitter. The selfie became the most re-tweeted picture ever, hitting over 2 million retweets! Hats off to you Ellen, well deserved!

#lupitaslipbalm: Ellen later returned to the A-list crowd to collect money for the pizza in what else, Pharrell’s hat. Best Actress winner Lupita dropped in her favorite lipbalm, which Ellen proceeded to put in her pocket, claiming it would be worth something. No surprise here, #lupitaslipbalm quickly became a popular trending topic on Twitter, even resulting in it’s own Twitter page. In case you were wondering, her lipbalm was Clarins, and it’s already close to sold out across the country.

Fashion Week Favorites: #ProjectBeauty at Neiman Marcus Scottsdale

nm 1

Give a girl the right heels beauty samples, and she can rule the world. No doubt local beauty lovers felt the same way at this past Wednesday’s ‘Project Beauty’ event hosted at the always fabulous Neiman Marcus Scottsdale. While guests sipped on pink spirits and nibbled on delicate lip and nail polish-shaped sweet treats, Neiman Marcus beauty specialists presented their favorite beauty products to stock up on for 2014! What’s more, male models from The Agency Arizona floated down the runway, with trays of each beauty product for guests to take home and test out!

Among the extensive list of spring must-haves, here were some of our favorites:

JO MALONE LONDON – Blackberry and Bay: The blackberry-infused scent in particular is bound to induce the always lovely reaction: “you smell amazing, what are you wearing?”

AMORE PACIFIC – Enzyme Peel: Having first tried this product a few years ago, it made me remember how amazing it really is. Made with green tea extract and bamboo, it comes as a powder that foams up with water and exfoliates….and it’s perfect for sensitive skin!

KATE SOMERVILLE – Exfolikate: Speaking of exfoliating…if you are looking for that “red carpet ready” glow, try this product by skincare guru Kate Somerville. Rumor has it, if your favorite celebrity has amazing skin on the red carpet, they’ve received a facial from Kate herself. Need we say more?

CHANTECAILLE – Neck Cream: Living in the Arizona desert, it’s important to remember to take care of our neck and decollete area. In fact, this area of your body shows age the fastest. Invest in a quality neck cream like Chantecaille to moisturize and repair.

BOBBI BROWN – Shimmer Brick: This product has become a staple in my daily makeup routine. It not only comes in a variety of shades sure to give you that coveted St. Tropez glow, the product also multi-tasks as an eye-shadow, highlighter and bronzer! (“Bronze” is my favorite)

Currently Loving: Carey Mulligan x Harper’s Bazaar UK

{CURRENTLY LOVING} Carey Mulligan’s flawless etheral beauty look on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar UK June 2013 issue. Hair by Jenny Cho. Makeup by Georgie Eisdell.

Want to recreate this look? Start with a dewy complexion and dab a rosy multi-tasking tint (Benefit has a great option) on your cheeks, lips and eyes. Finish off with a light coat of mascara and twist your hair into a loose chignon, leaving out a few face-framing pieces to complete the look. It’s all about minimal, natural beauty here.
