How’s everyone’s week going? Between the 2012 Kentucky Derby and the fashion Olympics – otherwise known as the Metropolitan Museum’s Costume Institute Gala – earlier this week, I’m more than ready to enjoy some casual street style looks.
I love everything about this look! I adore the ornate sleeves of the boxy cropped jacket, I like that she wore powder blue pants rather than standard jeans, and the necklace is gorgeous. Oh, and that bag. Wow.
This is the perfect example of a transition outfit. It’s starting to get warmer but you can’t quite run around in shorts and a tank yet, so add tights and pair your adorable shorts with a pretty printed blouse.
LOVE his suit. The patterns and mixture of colors are parfait! Yes, Miss Emma looks adorable here too, but as he should, Mr. Blasberg is the standout at his book fete!
Hey there sexy lady! I guess you know if you’re going to do Gucci from head-to-toe you’ll end up with a dramatic, eye-catching look.
I love the laid back but chic style of this look. The flowy, hippie-inspired shirt paired with cropped boyfriend jeans is a great combination, and those cobalt blue pumps are divine.
Such a great, relaxed Summer look. The tooled leather fanny pack is an interesting choice and I like the end result.

I love it when guys give a little effort on the RC. Something interesting. Something different. The cookie-cutter black suit is a no-no as far as I’m concerned. This? This however is perfect. Well played Harry!
Street Style @ Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia 2012:
Just wow. Great color combination, great proportions, great mixture of fabrics and textures.
Not sure how to wear Summer White? This picture is practically a How-To. Gorgeous, head to toe!
Do you have a cute printed blouse that you love? You can keep wearing it all summer, just tuck it into a mini skirt or shorts!
I love how she took really basic pieces and put together a stand-out look. White cotton shorts & a T with a gorgeous bag and beautiful printed robe. J’adore!
This is an interesting, dramatic look. The basic black on the bottom is overpowered (in a good way) by the brightly colored shirt with the asymmetrical hem and the too cute leather jacket & Mulberry bag combo. Well done!
It takes serious sartorial skills to wear floral pants or to mix patterns, and Perventina does a great job on both accounts. At the same time. Wow.
Let’s finish up with some red carpet glamour.
This is basically a tutorial on how to rock a chic mini on your next night out on the town. Courtesy of our fashion fairy godmothers Gwyneth, Coco, Diane, and Kate.
Perfection! Flattering fit. Flattering color.
Love love love! She did a great job styling this, I love the mix n’ match polka dots with the striped clutch. Too cute.
Chic, sleek, sexy. What more do you need for a night out?
Dramatic & eye-catching. As a model Coco really knows how to make a look work for her.
Have a great night!
Another week full of red carpet events to check out. Enjoy. Judge. 🙂 Movie openings, awards shows, gala dinners… All with a little something worth talking about.
Without further ado.
34th Annual Kennedy Center Honors in Washington, D.C.
It's hard to pull off Marchesa, its hard to pull off pink, and it's really really hard to pull off floor-length pink. That being said, Emily Blunt looked phenomenal in this Marchesa gown though, such an amazing color on her.
P.S. Mrs. Krasinski stunned in another fabulous pink gown with her adorable husband on the red carpet here.
This dress is flattering, interesting and chic. Well done SJP, well done. P.S. I love your hair!
American Country Awards in Las Vegas, Nevada:
Shawna & Keifer Thompson - Her: LOVE the dress, it's unique and flattering, and styled really well. J'dore her jewelry! Him: I have no words. Do you think they saw each other before they got to the red carpet???
Ashley Monroe (far left) looked great, her floral cocktail dress, metallic pumps and big curls were absolutely perfect for a fun, country-flavored event. Wish there was a better picture of her clutch though!
Josh Turner - While this isn't exactly your everyday look, I can't imagine anything better for the ACAs. Boots? Check. Visible belt buckle? Check. Worn jeans? Check. Show-stopping smile? Um... Check!
New Year’s Eve Premiere in Hollywood, California:
Harry Shum Jr. is my favorite of the Glee kids on the red carpet so I'm always excited to see what he's wearing. I like this sweater vest & blazer combo, its dressy enough to show that he's put forth some effort, but the jeans keep it low-key.
Michelle Pfeiffer looked stunning in purple Dolce & Gabbana, I especially like the choices for her multicolored folderover clutch and suede pumps.
I feel like all we've been seeing from the Elie Saab Fall 2011 collection are the pale dressed & gowns so I was excited to see one of the darker hues deployed on the red carpet. Hilary looks great, really well put together and classy.
2012 Pirelli Calendar Gala Dinner in New York City:
Rinko Kikuchi, Malgosia Bela, Natasha Poly, Mario Sorrenti, Isabeli Fontana, Joan Smalls, Margareth Made & Julianne Moore
Margareth Made was quite beautiful in a strapless navy column with a thigh high slit.
The night's most stunning look was definitely Joan Smalls, who looked phenomenal in a draping white gown and gold jewelry.
Valentino Virtual Museum in New York City:
Of all the dresses worn to the Valentino event, this would have been the one I'd have picked. I love shift dresses, I love the fun, glitzy fabric and I've been mad for those Valentino pumps ALL season.
It's incredibly hard to pull off an all white look, but leave it to fashion badass China Chow to make a fun poof dress and white strappy sandals look tres chic.
Izabel Goulart looked beautiful in floor-length navy Valentino. I'm glad that she wore her hair up so that you can focus on the great details of this dress: the subtle polka dots, bow and the layers of multi-patterned fabric in the skirt.
I like the demure hemline of Claire Danes's dress when combined with the outstanding color and fun details.
P.S. I finally got around to creating a Pinterest
account. Check it out!
