    2017 Oscars Best Dressed

    2017 Oscars Best Dressed // The Geeky Fashionista

    I think this is the earliest I’ve ever put up a Best Dressed list! Yay – go me!! I really haven’t been feeling very well all week (meaning no annual Oscars viewing party with friends for me) so it’s been a bit difficult doing, well, anything but seeing as how I’m leaving in 2 days to go to AUSTRALIA (!!!), I really wanted to push myself to get this post up ASAP. 

    Anyway…the Oscars were this past Sunday and despite being majorly sick in bed, I was still able to watch (and tweet) the broadcast in real time! And what an Oscars it was! Of course, there was that infamous Best Picture snafu we’ve all heard about by now… Despite that, overall, I thought it was a really good show and that Jimmy Kimmel did a great job hosting.

    La La Land was one of my Top 5 Films of the year but I was glad to see one of my other favorites, Hacksaw Ridge, getting some love and taking home 2 awards. I’m usually pretty spot on with my Oscars predictions each year but this year with 18 out of 24, I was a bit off. Some winners threw me for a loop (i.e. Suicide Squad) and others (Fantastic Beasts, Hacksaw Ridge, Arrival) I was genuinely happy to be wrong about.

    But this post is about FASHION so let’s talk about that. There were some real stunners on the red carpet. I miss my flowy gowns of awards shows past, but it’s definitely interesting to see how fashion evolves over the years. The biggest color trends I saw were lots of metallics (especially gold), black, white, and red. There were also lots of long sleeves, high slits, high necklines, low plunging necklines, capes, and velvet!

    Who worked these trends the best? Keep reading for my Oscars Best Dressed List!

    2017 Golden Globes Best Dressed

    Golden Globes Best Dressed // The Geeky Fashionista

    Awards season is in full swing and you know what that means! It’s time for my annual red carpet Best Dressed lists! We’re starting things off with last Sunday’s Golden Globes ceremony where La La Land received a totally deserved record-breaking 7 wins! Seriously, if you haven’t seen this movie yet…Go. See. It. As for the fashion (because that’s what this post is about), I was really feeling a lot of the looks this year! There were more plunging necklines than I’ve ever seen at one show, but they were done very tastefully and different so it never seemed like we were seeing the same thing over and over again. Other trends we saw were lots of sparkle, metallics, and the color yellow.

    2015 Golden Globes Best Dressed

    The Golden Globes happened this past week and with that we are officially in awards season! As usual, I did not catch the live broadcast, but instead stayed up to date on all the red carpet goodness and winners through Twitter.  Highlights for me included: Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hosting because they are flawless and should host everything and, yes, women can be funny; Gina Rodriguez‘s win for Jane the Virgin because she’s a wonderfully charming actress in a wonderfully charming and underrated show and the win was totally deserved (and historical! as it was the CW’s first ever Globe win); How To Train Your Dragon 2‘s win for Best Animated Feature because while I do LOVE me some The Lego Movie, this movie was just magical and gave me all the feels; and Matt Bomer‘s win because it gave me the opportunity to see more of Matt Bomer. Anyway, this is a fashion post, so let’s talk fashion. Here are my totally random top picks for Best Dressed at the Golden Globes.
     
    Emma Stone – Lanvin
    Not sure how I feel about that giant bow/cape thing, but it does add something and leave it to Emma to always try something different and look fashion forward and fresh. I wouldn’t love this nearly as much if it were dress.
     
    Jenna Dewan-Tatum – Carolina Herrera
    I’m surprised how much I loved the color yellow at the Globes. Also surprised at how much I love this dress as the shape is a little odd especially around the middle. I think Jenna’s just really working it, the contrast with her dark hair is fantastic.
     
     Reese Witherspoon – Calvin Klein
    Simple, classic, elegant – very Reese.
     
     Naomi Watts – Gucci
    New trend alert! Snake necklaces are in (Kate Beckinsale also rocked one at the AMAs) as is the aforementioned color yellow.
     
     Lupita Nyong’o – Giambattista Valli
    I love how much fun Lupita has with her red carpet fashion choices, especially when it comes to color! You know she’s always going to pop and look lovely in whatever she wears and this was no exception. Such a show stopper. Also her, makeup is divine.

    Leslie Mann – KAUFMANFRANCO
    More yellow! Love the surprise pop of green in the earrings and clutch!
     
    Kate Beckinsale – Elie Saab
    Kate looks gorgeous as usual. I love the sparkly top, the flawy bottom, and the accessories (big earrings are a guilty pleasure of mine even if not always flattering). My favorite little detail are the black nails – something so small yet I feel like it just elevates the look to another level.
     
    Amy Adams – Atelier Versace
    Super safe – I feel like she’s worn something like this many times before, but the color is just oh so perfect on her.

    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.
