    2012 AMAs: Best Dressed

    I don’t have cable so I wasn’t able to watch the actual awards show, but thanks to the internet, I was able to stay up to date on the glitzy red carpet fashion (and watch Taylor Swift’s fierce performance). Here are my favorite red carpet looks of the night:

    Taylor Swift – Zuhair Murad 
    Carrie Underwood – Abed Mahfouz 
    Hayden Panettiere – Giorgio Armani 
    Kelly Rowland – Naeem Khan

    2012 ACM Awards: Best Dressed

    I’m not a big country music fan (although I do love me some Taylor Swift and Carrie Underwood), but from what I’ve seen at the American Country Music Awards this year, I am a fan of their red carpet fashion choices. Here are my favorite looks from the event.
    #1 – Taylor Swift – J. Mendel
    Taylor makes the top of the list looking flawless in a white J. Mendel column gown with small cut outs on the sides of the waist, Christian Louboutin heels, and jewelry by Lorrain Schwartz. I absolutely love everything about this look. 
    #2 – Carrie Underwood – Abed Mahfouz Couture
    Carrie looks ethereal in this sheer asymmetrically cut Abed Mahfouz Couture gown, accessorized with Oscar de la Renta peep-toes, and Johnathon Amdt jewels.
    #3 – Miranda Lambert 
    Miranda’s gold arrival gown by Randi Rahm got a lot of attention, but I adored the fabulous beaded minidress she wore after the show.
    #4 – Jennifer Nettles – Max Azria
    Jennifer added a welcome burst of color in her pink/coral Max Azria gown. Love how she paired it with the contrasting and equally bright colored yellow belt!
    #5 – Hillary Scott – Emilio Pucci
    Great accessorizing saved this look from seeming too plain. Hillary looks super sleek in this flattering long wrap dress by Emilio Pucci with David Webb jewelry and a Bulgari clutch.

    2012 Kids’ Choice Awards: Best Dressed

    I am so pleased with the fashion choices at this year’s Kids’ Choice Awards! It can be a tricky event to dress for because you don’t want to look too formal or too casual and if you’re young you don’t want to dress too old and if you’re old you don’t want to dress too young. Really, the key to this event is looking age-appropriate and fun – you want to appear effortlessly stylish and not like you’re trying too hard. I’m happy to say that most stars pulled this off and looked great. Here were my top 5 favorite looks:

    #1 – Selena Gomez – Dolce & Gabbana
    On anyone else, this look probably would not have worked and instead have looked trashy. Selena, however, has always managed to find the perfect balance and combination of cute and sexy and, once again, looks amazing as usual in this D&G two-piece which consists of a floral bustier top and a gorgeous crystal-embellished skirt. She completed the look with a pair of drool-worthy two-tone pink and orange Cesare Paciotti studded heels.

    #2 – Taylor Swift – Maria Lucia Hohan
    Taylor was honored with the “Big Help” award by Michelle Obama for her ongoing charity work. She accepted her award in a very sweet and girly ballerina-inspired gown and accessorized with gold Nicholas Kirkwood sandals and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry. Love her blue nails and braided up-do.

    #3 – Emma Stone – Antonio Berardi
    Emma is back to her natural blonde and looking super chic in this feminine nude/blush dress (which I adored on the runway for its simple but unique construction). She paired the dress with great nude Alejandro Ingelmo ‘Gilda’ wedges and Irene Neuwirth jewels, but we all know her best accessory was her adorable boyfriend and future Spider-Man, Andrew Garfield.

    #4 – Sarah Hyland – Myne
    Sarah stood out in this great red wraparound maxi dress which featured a thigh high split which she paired with a Kotur gold clutch and strappy Cesare Paciotti sandals. I think she looks great – my only complaint is that her center-parted straight hair is a bit boring.

    #5 – Ashley Tisdale – Kymerah
    I might be in the minority here, but I do like this dress even if I’m not the biggest fan of it on Ashely (I think a dark-haired celeb like Selena or Sarah could’ve really rocked this). I’m a sucker for high-low dresses and I like the sheer coral over the black and white pattern, but I’m not feeling the black Brian Atwood fringed heels or the random red stripe in her hair.

    2012 Grammys: Best Dressed

    I know the Grammys were some time ago, but I just couldn’t help myself to make another Best Dressed list. The show is usually an outrageous fashion train wreck (and there were still plenty of those), but the ladies really stepped it up this year! Here are my favorite looks:
     #1 – Rihanna – Giorgio Armani
    Glamorous and fierce (and SO Grammy’s appropriate), it’s been a long time since I’ve seen Rihanna look this good!
    #2 – Taylor Swift – Zuhair Murad
    Stepping out of her comfort zone in a much more ‘adult’ gown, Taylor still looked as beautiful and fashion forward as ever.
     #3 – Kate Beckinsale – Zuhair Murad
    Kate showed off her amazing body in this simple but still elegant silk mini dress.
     #4 – Carrie Underwood – Gomez Gracia
    Carrie definitely shone in this sparkly gown – LOVE the back!
    #5 – Adele – Giorgio Armani
    So happy for her! She looked amazing and, deservedly, won 6 Grammys!!
     #6 – Julianne Hough – Kaufman Franco
    #7 – Hillary Scott – Monique Lhullier
     #8 – Kathy Griffin – Unknown


    #9 – Kelly Osbourne – Tony Ward
    #10 – Guiliana Rancic – Georges Chakra Couture
