10 Best Dressed at the Oscars

Happy Tuesday, y’all!

Who watched the Oscars this past Sunday?? I certainly did, it’s the biggest night in Hollywood! It’s like my version of the Super Bowl! I’m gonna be honest though, I was a little concerned as to how they were gonna pull it off without a host. It seems almost impossible to have a big awards show without a host, whether they’re super famous or not as famous. However, I was surprised. It turned out to be very entertaining, and not very controversial as far as I’m concerned!

My favorite parts of the night were Adam Lambert and Queen paying tribute to Bohemian Rhapsody, Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper performing “Shallows”, Keegan-Michael Key descending from the ceiling like Mary Poppins, John Mulaney and Awkwafina awkwardly but hilariously presenting together, and Regina King’s beautiful speech. But honestly, nothing beats watching celebrities glam in up on the red carpet in beautiful fashion statements! It’s so exciting to see who’s wearing what and how well they can pull it off. I’m pleased to say I was very impressed this year. It was hard to choose only ten favorite looks for this blog post, there were so many that I really liked!

With that being said, here is my list of top ten best dressed at the Oscars!

1.) Constance Wu

I’m OBSESSED with that dress! Not many people can pull off a bright yellow, but Constance sure can! I’m totally getting Belle vibes, which I’m all for 💛

2.) Laura Harrier

This is very simple yet elegant all at once. I love the light blue shade, as well as the sparkly embroidery and jewelry. I also like her hot pink nails and blue eyeshadow. Laura looked absolutely gorgeous!

3.) Jennifer Hudson

I’m a sucker red dresses. It’s my favorite color and there’s many different red gowns that are stunning, especially this one worn by Jennifer Hudson. I love the ruffle sash and how one arm has a long sleeve and the other is strapless, it’s so unique and chic. She slays, both on the red carpet and on stage with her dynamite voice!

4.) Brie Larson

Brie’s silver dress and platinum blonde locks make a perfect style combo. Seeing her in this sparkly gown just makes me even more excited to see Captain Marvel in less than two weeks … this woman is a warrior in the Marvel Cinematic Universe AND the fashion industry!!

5.) Regina King

Not only did she give a beautiful acceptance speech (God certainly is good all the time 🙌🏻), but she looked stunningly beautiful in her white dress! I love the graceful train of the dress that flows perfectly, as well as the matching white pumps. This actually reminds me of a white prom dress I wore junior year to my prom, which is why it definitely makes my list for top favorite looks!

6.) Ashley Graham

Ashley Graham is one of my role models, so obviously I had to include her. It’s not even just her kindness and strong attitude that I love about her, but also her amazing fashion sense. This look is so timeless and elegant. The long black mermaid dress makes her look so glamorous, and even more with the beautiful diamond choker necklace fit for a queen because Ashley is always a killer queen!

7.) Jennifer Lopez

I just have to ask … how is this woman almost fifty-years old? She looks like she could be in her early thirties! She’s one of the few people of her age that can pull off this ravishing, chic dress. I’m not gonna lie though, it looks very heavy and uncomfortable despite how stunning it is. It also looks like a disco ball, perfect for a 70s party! 😂

Designed By: Tom Ford

8.) Julia Roberts

I’m OBSESSED with that hot pink goddess dress! It’s one of my favorite colors, and I just love the sexiness and elegance, as well as the matching sandal heels. Vivian Ward would definitely approve of this look. Julia will forever be a style icon! 

Designed By: ELIE SAAB

9.) Tina Fey

The royal blue and flowing bottom are by far the best features of this outfit. That’s all I have to say, other than that she looks gorgeous AF. Period. I’d also be happy to sign a petition for her, Amy Poehler, and Maya Rudolph to host the Oscars next year together. How amazing would that be? Just wanting them present one award together was perfection!

Designed By: Vera Wang

10.) Leititia Wright

Some say this look is a tad boring. It may be my least favorite on this list, but I still think it’s very graceful and demure. I like the neutral colors, it makes the dress look timeless but not too old-fashioned. Plus, the leaf embroidery gives off a playful, youthful vibe in a way. Leitita looked so beautiful as always!

10 Best Dressed at the Grammys

Happy Tuesday, y’all!

Hollywood awards season is still in full swing. In less than two weeks is the biggest movie awards night of the year (aka the Oscars), and this past Sunday was the biggest music awards night of the year … the Grammys!

I’m gonna be real honest with y’all, I didn’t watch the Grammys. I didn’t even watch the live stream of the red carpet on E! News. I know, how absurd of me! I’m just not as excited about the Grammys as am about the Oscars or Golden Globes. I’m more familiar with movie actors/actresses than I am with music artists. However, that didn’t stop me from looking online and seeing what the celebs were showing off on the red carpet. I gotta say, I was very impressed! From Miley Cyrus’s chic pantsuit by Mugler to Anna Kendrick’s sweet and sassy Roaring Twenties dress by Ralph & Russo, I didn’t find myself disappointed one bit! Although I’m a little bummed Carrie Underwood didn’t attend the ceremony because she always has the most glamorous red carpet outfits. But hey, you can’t always get what you want. Plus, I’m thrilled that she finally had her beautiful baby boy Jacob and is taking time off for family. God bless her and the Underwood-Fisher fam!

Anyways, here are my top ten favorite red carpet looks from the Grammys!

1.) Lauren Daigle

10 DIY Halloween Costume Ideas

Happy Belated Halloween! 

To be honest, I'm not that sad about Halloween being over for the year. It's not necessarily my favorite holiday, mainly because I don't like all the scary and gory themes. I'm more of a Christmas gal. 

But I still love the holiday for using creativity with crazy and fun costumes ideas. I honestly find it more fun to dress up for Halloween now as an adult rather than when I was little! Of course, I'm not super into the too adult costumes. And I do miss trick-or-treating. 

Unfortunately, one of my weaknesses is time management, which means I always end up creating a super cool costume idea at the very last minute. I already had ideas since this summer, but I've seen so many other interesting ideas on others blogs and social media, mainly Pinterest and Instagram, and totally made me wish I had thought of that sooner. But instead of worrying about running out of time like Cinderella (which happens to be a very good costume ironically), I decided to share ten of my top favorite costume ideas for anyone looking for an outfit next year or for a late Halloween party this year! 

1.) Starbucks Drink

This idea is so genius, it's "too hot" to handle! 

2.) Social Media Apps

For Facebook, carry a book and hold it next to your face! For Twitter, stick small pieces of random tweets all over your outfit (of course no more than 150 characters)! For Instagram, carry a camera and pretend to take pictures! For Snapchat, use makeup to make your face look like a filter! For Pinterest, pretend to be pinning a picture to a mini bulletin board! 

3.) Netflix and Chill

This is a perfect couple or best friend costume idea. With an oversized shirt, a pair of comfy sweatpants/leggings, and maybe a box of pizza, you should be good to go. Of course, keep it PG! 

4.) Disney Parks Cast Member

My mom has a friend from work who knew how to make a laminated paper version of an cast member ID of Walt Disney World, and being the huge Disney fan I am, she insisted that I should have one. So her friend made one from me and now I feel like I'm officially part of the Disney family! I think this is a fantastic idea for anyone who is a Disney fan or who dreams of working at one of the parks someday. And who knows, maybe just having a fake ID will get you in the FastPass+ lines! 

5.) Scarecrow

This is an easy one outfit-wise. All you really need is a flannel, boots, and a straw hat. I especially like the makeup for this costume idea. It may be a little harder than the outfit, but it's definitely more fun to do. 

6.) Snapchat Filters

I'm so in love with this DIY costume, I think it's so clever and perfect for the latest social media trends. Now we finally have the chance to look exactly like the filters on Snapchat that make us feel pretty and goddess-like! The face shape changes and face swapping may be a little complicated ... 

7.) Gumball Machine

I love colored cotton balls, and it's a great excuse to buy them for this simple and adorable look, of course with some glue! It's cute, it's creative, what's not to love about it?  

8.) Jess from New Girl

(Source)

Every female New Girl junkie dreams of having style like Jessica Day, so why not make that dream come true? All you need are glasses, tights, flats, a quirky dress, and maybe a wig if you don't have dark hair or bangs. 

9.) Mary Poppins

(Source)

Because she's "practically perfect in every way"! 

10.) Audrey Hepburn

"Always be the leading lady of your own life."
