I love a good red carpet, and we’ve had plenty of those lately (2012 Cannes Film Festival, Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic, 2012 amfAR’s Cinema Against AIDS, 2012 MTV Movie Awards, and the 2012 CFDA Awards) but there’s something especially fun about the red carpet for a musical event. Musicians tend to push the fashion boundaries more than actors do, which can lead to quite the pectacle for us to enjoy.
You’ve got to admit, Miss Carrie knows what works for her! She’s got a great figure and while she loves to wear romantic floor-length gowns, she knows the power of a sparkly mini for a country event.
You can see the stunning pale blue Oscar de la Renta gown that Carrie wore to the 2012 Billboard Music Awards a few weeks ago over here. She definitely knows how to keep us on our toes!
The new face of Donna Karan wore a sequin and feather adorned nude dress by who else, Donna Karan Atelier.
This gold Reem Acra gown is gorgeous! I love that she picked a dress that makes her look statuesque for her hosting duties.
This is a great, simple look for the band. Nothing too wild and crazy, just black & white basics. Well done.

This weekend was beautiful and there were all sorts of fun summer events on the docket for the important and fashionable to attend, including the Fifth Annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic.
And the stars were definitely out.
There were Hollywood A-listers like host Clive Owen, top models like Jessica Stam, Hilary Rhoda, and Coco Rocha, fashion insiders like Rachel Zoe, Derek Blasberg, and Poppy Delevingne, and even athletes joined the festivities this weekend.
Love the black & white looks – Whether its patterns or just black & white separates, it’s a great way to up the chicness of a look.
How sweet is this look? Pretty pink petal skirt and some killer red lips, Miss Coco knows just what she’s doing.
Hot stuff! Black leather short are tough tough tough to pull off. Might be best to leave it up to the experts!
This pleated peach maxi is pretty cute, but it was Olivia’s giant gold pendant that really got my attention. That and her date’s adorable suit.
I love a white linen suit in summer. Tres chic!
Um… Love! How great is this? From the gorgeous printed maxi dress (Rachel Zoe Collection – but of course) to the umbrella to the great 70’s style floppy hat.
