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 💛

Designed By: Versace

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! 

Designed By: Louis Vuitton

3.) Jennifer Hudson

APTOPIX-91st-Academy-Awards-Arrivals-1.jpg

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!!

Designed By: Celine

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!

Designed By: Oscar de la Renta

6.) Ashley Graham

91st-Academy-Awards-Arrivals-221.jpg

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!

Designed By: Zac Posen

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

Julia+Roberts+91st+Annual+Academy+Awards+Show+UgNtVfdRVWel.jpg

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

tina-fey-oscars-red-carpet-2019.jpg

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

30938dd751f0e1041f4475922c7910b8.jpg

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!

Designed By: Christian Dior

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

Best Dressed at the Golden Globes

Happy Tuesday! It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these posts. I’m happy to be (sort of) back in the routine, and you’ll get to see even more posts with winter, spring semester, and awards season currently happening!

Speaking of awards season, did anyone watch the Golden Globes this past Sunday? I sure did! Ever since I was a teenager, I’ve always enjoyed watching Hollywood award show events. As I watched the glamorous events happen on the TV screen, I would daydream about having the opportunity to attend one of the many popular award shows, wear a beautiful haute couture designer gown, and meet some of my favorite celebrities. But for real, what teenager doesn’t dream about all that? And if I’m being honest with myself, to this day I still dream about attending an awards show, movie premiere, or some kind of big Hollywood event. I obviously don’t want to be a celebrity, but I would love to be an audience member just to be a part of the action. I bet events and shows also look for influencers or bloggers to help sponsor, so that’s definitely a possibility. Never give up on a dream!

One of the best parts about watching award shows, besides predicting and seeing who wins, is seeing the celebrity fashion on the red carpet. The glitz and glamour is everything. As a fashion blogger and fashion student at Kent State, it makes perfect sense as to why I love it. I always love imaginig what my favorite celebrities are going to be wearing and actually seeing what they wear, either better than I imagined or not what I imagined at all (which could go either way). It’s always felt like a special occasion for me, even if I’m watching from my couch in my sweatpants while eating pizza and drinking wine. Award shows are my version of Super Bowl games!

With that being said, here are my top ten picks for best dressed at the 2019 Golden Globes!

1.) Gina Rodriguez

Gina+at+Golden+Globes.jpg

Gina is such a cutie. I immediately fell in love with her look when I first saw her on the red carpet. This dress is like a combination of Cinderella and a goddess. She looks so elegant and sexy all at once!

Designer: Reem Acra

2.) Holly Taylor

rexfeatures_10048066df.jpg

Red is my favorite color, so this dress is a winner to me. I love the straps and how from top to bottom flows like a mermaid tail. Holly looked adorable!

Designer: Ines Di Santo

3.) Kristen Bell

rexfeatures_10048065fk.jpg

This is what I call a timeless Hollywood look. Kristen looked absolutely drop-dead gorgeous and flawless! I loved seeing photos of her twirling in the dress on the red carpet. She’s an actual Disney princess come to life, just like her character Princess Anna in Frozen!

Designer: Zuhair Murad

4.) Kaley Cuoco

Screen Shot 2019-01-06 at 8.29.26 PM.png

The navy velvet top is cute, the belt is cute, the bottom is cute, and her hair is cute. Cute cute cute cute! Plus, the dress also has pockets! Kaley actually said in an interview that wearing an outfit with pockets helps her stay calm on the red carpet. That’s such a great idea. And who doesn’t love pockets?!

Designer: Monique Lhuillier

5.) Keri Russell

What’s not to love about this dress? She looks so sexy and gorgeous! The neckline is a little too low in my opinion, but the dress overall is super glamorous.

Designer: Monique Lhuillier

6.) Julia Roberts

Julia Roberts.jpg

This was one of my mom’s favorite looks, as well as mine. I love the nude bottom tulle cape and top with the black pants and heels. It looks so chic and simple at the same time. I love how women’s pants are becoming super popular and trendy on the red carpet!

Designer: Stella McCartney

7.) Danai Gurira

rexfeatures_10048067ll.jpg

This look is so fiery and fierce! I fell in love with Danai when she played Okoye in Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War. She can slay in Wakanda AND on the red carpet!

Designer: Rodarte

8.) Halle Berry

FullSizeRender.jpg

LOVE Halle Berry with long hair, especially in that sleek ponytail with bangs! And this dress looks amazing on her. She is literally slaying the red carpet. She is a killer queen!

Designer: Zuhair Murad

9.) Emma Stone

rexfeatures_10048065el.jpg

I’ve always adored Emma Stone, and so does my dad and almost every guy I know 😂 The rose gold tulle and metallic embroidery match elegantly and make the gown fit for a princess. I heard a few people comment that the top of her dress looked too puffy, but I don’t think it looks that puffy. Plus, puffy tops are so in now!

Designer: Louis Vuitton

10.) Lady Gaga

Screen Shot 2019-01-06 at 8.38.21 PM.png

Periwinkle is one of my other favorite colors, and I love how the dress and hair match. Only Lady Gaga could rock a look like this. Sorry, Judy Garland!

Designer: Valentino

BONUS: Emily Blunt 

FullSizeRender.jpg

What can I say? She’s practically perfect in every way! She and her husband John Krasinski also win Best Dressed Couple in my heart. If you haven’t seen pictures of them from the other night, go Google them right now. You won’t regret it ❤️

Designer: Alexander McQueen

10 Summer Reading Books

While laying outside in the sun during the summertime, most of us tend to spend that free time on social media. It's just the go-to for us millennials nowadays, or as we would also call "the norm". But how about we spend less time falling down the rabbit hole of Instagram and instead falling down the rabbit hole of a good book? I hope my fellow readers got that reference!

Nowadays as adults, it can be hard to make reading during our free time a priority with our busy adult schedules (ugh). I love books, but I have a tough time trying to get some reading in. And even if I do have the time, I instead get caught up on the latest Tweets trending the Internet. Lately; however, I've been disciplining myself more and making sure I have enough time to get caught up in reading. It really is a great feeling to put down the phone and read an exciting fairy tale that takes you away from reality for a few hours! 

With that being said, here are my top ten book recommendations for this summer!

1.) "Live Fearless: A Call to Power, Passion, and Purpose" by Sadie Robertson

Live Fearless.jpg

Y'all, this book is amazing. I'm not even halfway done reading it but it's already one of my favorite books! This is perfect for Christian college-aged and teen girls struggling with fear, insecurities, and anxiety. Sadie Robertson is a true inspiration and her empowering words should encourage everyone to overcome their biggest fears through the love of Jesus. I say in a world full of Kardashians, be a Sadie!

2.) "Creative Visualization" by Shakti Gawain 

Creative Visualization.jpg

It's no secret that I'm a very spiritual believer. I love all things that have to do with God, the law of attraction, manifesting, visualization, and anything that has to do with creating life out of thoughts. This book is so amazing and empowering. I've already made mediating a part of my daily routine, but now I try to do a quick manifestation meditation at least once a day. It's so helpful and I feel even closer to achieving my goals that I send out to the universe!

3.) "Uninvited" by Lysa Terkeurst

Uninvited.jpg

You guys, this book is amazing! I'm not even halfway done reading it but it's already one of my top favorite books ever, along with the Harry Potter series of course. Lysa TerKeurst has a quirky sense of humor, meaningful tips on how to "live loved", and reminds us all that no one is a perfect human being except for Jesus. I highly recommend this book, it's so good that I might write a full blog post based on it later on!

4.) "Wild and Free" by Jess Conolly & Hayley Morgan

Wild and Free.jpg

I saw this on one of my friend's Instagram story which she was reading on the beach. I've been trying to read more Christian self-confidence guide books for girls, so this looks like it's going to be a good one for me!

5.) "The Help" by Kathryn Stockett

The Help.jpg

I've seen the movie and it's one of my top favorites, but shockingly I've never read the book. Now this summer I have the opportunity, and I can't wait to do so!

6.) "The Bucket List" by Georgia Clark

the-bucket-list-9781501173028_hr.jpg

The title of this book captures my attention. I know you're not supposed to judge a book by a cover, but it definitely sounds intriguing in this case!

7.) "Fangirl" by Rainbow Rowell

Fangirl.jpg

I read this for a summer project in high school and I still really enjoy it. It's great for any girl starting college, especially if you want to major in English or creative writing!

8.) "Crazy Rich Asians" by Kevin Kwan

Crazy Rich Asians.jpg

This book is getting so much praise with the film adaption coming out later this summer, so it's definitely on my reading list!

9.) "Beautiful Disaster" by Jamie McGuire

Beautiful Disaster.jpg

This book has been on my must-read list for a long time now, so it's about time that I actually start reading it. One of my friends said that I would like this since I like both Harry Potter and romance, so it's the perfect combination for me!

10.) "Little House in the Big Woods" by Laura Ingalls Wilder

Little House in the Big Woods.jpg

Why not throw in a classic you probably already read in elementary school? I loved these books as a kid. My mom has a sign in our home that says "Home is the nicest word there is", and it truly is!

10 Best Dressed at Met Gala

The Met Gala is one of the most glamorous nights of the year, in both the fashion and entertainment industry. It's the one night where it is exceptional to wear a crazy outfit that looks like it should be on display at a museum (ironic considering it takes place at the MET Museum!) It's always fun to see how creative celebrities get with their style, and every year almost everyone makes history with what they wear. This year, I was happy to hear the theme was "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination". I love that idea and I think everything about it is beautiful. Of course all the stars who attended looked beautiful in their heavenly masterpieces! 

With that being said, here are my top ten favorite looks from the Met Gala!

1.) Blake Lively

I mean, c'mon! I swear Blake is a goddess sent down from the heavens. This outfit literally fits a queen and no one could of rocked it better than her. Look at the amazing jewels and burgundy velvet skirt!

Designer: Versace

2.) Selena Gomez

A very radiant and elegant look. Selena said that Queen Esther from the Bible was her inspiration and that her current relationship is set on Jesus, which makes me adore her even more. She's such an amazing role model!

Designer: Coach

3.) Ashley Graham

Ashley is a BOSS! I love this girl, everything about her. She's beautiful inside and out, she's confident, she's cool, and she's a great inspiration for all girls to follow. Look at how amazing she looks in this gown, she's killing it! The sparkles and train, it all looks so perfect on her.

Designer: TASAKI

4.) Karlie Kloss

I seriously want to be Karlie's best friend. She's so cool and fun. And let's not forget her amazing taste in style, look at this dress! So elegant and sexy at the same time. She totally pulls it off!

Designer: Brandon Maxwell

5.) Chadwick Boseman

Everyone make way for the King of Wakanda! Chadwick (sorry, the Black Panther) never fails when it comes to style like this outfit symbolizing Jesus Christ. But then again, what can't he do?! #WakandaForever

Chadwick Boseman 2.jpg

Designer: Versace

6.) Liza Koshy

Not only is she hilarious AF, but the girl has style! I can't get over this classy yet spunky look, my kind of style for sure. And her beautiful winged eyes, perfectly lined eyebrows, and red lipstick are a great final touch!

Designer: Alessandra Rich

7.) Amal Clooney

I love red roses, especially on this outfit. I love the soft metallic top and satin pants, along with the beautiful floral train. This is a timeless look!

Screen Shot 2018-05-10 at 7.49.12 PM.png

Designer: Richard Quinn

8.) Dakota Fanning

If it's perfect for both prom and the Met Gala, then it's the best dress yet! I love this beautiful white gown, she looks like a princess! 

Screen Shot 2018-05-10 at 7.48.57 PM.png

Designer: Miu Miu

9.) Rosie Huntington

Literally an angel sent down from heaven. The halo couldn't make a better touch with this gorgeous gown. It's like she came right out of a stained glass window in a Catholic church!

Screen Shot 2018-05-10 at 7.51.17 PM.png

Designer: Ralph Lauren

10.) Cindy Crawford

Cindy Crawford to this day is still a fashion icon. It's as though she hasn't aged at all! She still looks like her 25-year old self back when she wore a very similar red gown at the 1991 Met Gala!

cindy-crawford-met-gala-oscars-dress.jpg

Designer: Versace

BONUS: Cardi B

Cardi B seriously nailed this look, I love the Catholic inspiration behind it. I also give her big time credit for the heavy material on the outfit, especially while she has growing baby in her stomach! She literally is a queen!

Designer: Moschino

10 Best Dressed at the Emmys

I'm going to be super honest, this past weekend was so stressful. I had an assignment for one of my online classes due on Sunday night that I started on late. I'm not joking guys, it literally took me till 3 AM on Saturday as well as the whole entire Sunday to complete it. Have you ever experienced mental health and schoolwork combined? It's not fun. 

I also have a super busy week ahead of me, so I'm going to keep this post more short than the red carpet favorites blog posts that I've written in the past. I was going to write a longer blog post to explain the Emmys, but I honestly don't think it's necessary. I love celebrity red carpet fashion and it's pretty obvious when I rate my favorite outfits on a blog post that I don't even need to explain why I like them. For this week's Tuesday Ten, here are my top ten favorite looks from the Emmy's along with their designers: 

1.) Jessica Biel

10 Best Dressed at Coachella

Did anyone go to Coachella this past weekend? Don't tell me if you did, otherwise I may shed a few tears ... 

I'm just kidding, I actually don't even mind not going. Of course, it's something that I definitely want to attend someday, but this weekend was spent with my family and I could not turn that down, especially considering we we're celebrating Easter. Also some of the controversies that spark from this giant annual music festival seem insanely crazy, such as drugs and probably sex. I would never get involved in that kind of stuff, I just want to go to Coachella for the music, friendship, food, drinks, activities, celebrities, and of course, fashion!

I figured it has been a while since I last posted a Tuesday Ten, so I finally made some time during my busy schedule to write a blog about Coachella fashion. So now, I want to share my top ten picks for best dressed this past weekend! 

1.) Victoria Justice

Maxi dresses and fedoras for life! This outfit is the definition and example of music festival style, especially for Coachella. Is there any better way to put it? And the scarlet red color works so well with Victoria's dark hair and olive skin tone. Also her sunglasses, hat, and blue nail polish is all on point! Once a fashion icon, forever a fashion icon. 

2.) Jamie Chung

I LOVE the pineapple crop top, it's so adorable! I also really love her ripped jean shorts, yellow sandals, funky sunglasses, mini yellow purse, and oil-paper parasol. I'm not crazy about the earrings, but everything else about this outfit is super cute and perfect for a big music festival and for the upcoming summer season! 

3.) Lottie Moss

I've already talked about how off the shoulder outfits are trending in my last fashion blog. This year's Coachella was populated with these kinds of tops and dresses, and Lottie Moss's version is very lovely, chic, and kind of sporty (with the sneakers). My favorite part about this outfit is the black layered wrap skirt, and I also like the black fedora and hippie John Lennon-looking frames. 

4.) Olivia Culpo

There has not been one jumpsuit that I have seen and hated. This outfit is so cute and well-fitted. The striped pattern makes it so fun but not too out there or controversial unlike some of the Coachella outfits that girls wear. Her eye makeup also looks so beautiful with her bob cut, and the yellow cotton candy adds a sweet touch! Now I'm craving cotton candy ... 

5.) Emma Roberts

Emma has already tried every natural hair color and has managed to pull them all off super well. First brunette, then blonde, and now ginger. She just has that pretty face and taste in style that makes it work! I also really adore this dress, it's absolutely perfect for spring and summer. The shoes and sunglasses also look super chic for a chic weekend. 

6.) Selena Gomez

Selena is my current girl crush at the moment. She has such a great taste in style and is willing to try anything out, from elegant to rebellious. She can pull almost anything off, especially this cute blue and white daisy collared dress and Ash Footwear white sneakers. This is definitely an outfit that is mostly girly-girl with a little tomboy touch to it. 

7.) Ashley Graham    

I honestly didn't really know who Ashley Graham was until I watched her in a "73 Questions" segment for Vogue. While watching it, I fell in love with her confidence and personality, she's so cool and beautiful! And I think of all those exact qualities when I look at her fashion pictures from Coachella. I love the gold choker and gold metallic robe wrapped around the black off the shoulder dress, very much like Cleopatra! 

8.) Hailee Steinfeld

The short shirt dress and knee high boots look like a modern day rock star and the matching fashion pieces look pop star! The red lipstick also looks great with the outfit's color pattern, side ponytail, and neutral eye makeup. I think this look overall is so cool and fits super well on Hailee and with her sense of style! 

9.) Martha Hunt

I'm not a big fan of the see-through shirt, but I love the sequin shorts and gray/blue booties. Even though I don't like the top part that much, I think the lace white bralette that she chose to wear looks really stylish.

10.) Kendall Jenner

I have to be honest and say that I am not a fan of the Kardashians but if I had to pick a favorite, it would probably be Kendall. She definitely has the best taste in style, and she definitely proved it at the music festival this weekend with this chic outfit. Plus, she seems like the nicest and most fun to hang out with (especially since she's a member of the T-Swift Squad!)
