Award season took another step forward last night with the annual 57th Grammy Awards — yes, that means we’re about to sprinkle your Monday with our favorite rock-n-roll red carpet looks. From sheer sequins to basic black, sexy cutouts to chic pantsuits, the celebs ran the gamut at the music industries biggest night, mostly laying off the bold, bright colors and sticking to shades of black and white. (One notable exception was Rihanna who sported a massive pink dress.) And while we’re going to hold off on offering up Madonna and her derriére (you can find that aplenty on Dr. Google), we are going to give you a peak at what we think were the winners in the style department. Here we go!
For the third time in as many days, I’ve heard a handful of very stylish stylists tick off the merits of the slicked back wet look that tore up the 2015 fashion week runways and is now tearing up the red carpets. Add to this its impossibly easy-peasy execution and the fact that it works with nearly every type and length of hair and you have the making of what could be your go-to do for the year. A simple dollop of hair gel at the root of freshly washed locks, combed straight back, into a deep side or dead center part and voila! — You look perfectly put together and urban chic whether you leave the length of your hair down and air dried or tidied up in a neat bun or ponytail. Here are some celebrity takes on the wet hair trend to offer up inspiration for those days when a blowout is simply to taxing to your schedule or your psyche.read more
Can a singular skirt really be considered a trend? If we’re judging by the mass of recent celeb sightings of the thigh-high slit skirt — we think we can!
The thigh-high slit skirt is a versatile little number that shows off the perfect amount of skin without going to over-the-top. Paired with a high necked tee or a starchy button down, this little number can go from day to night in a single flash of your lipstick. And while Altuzarra’s S/S 14 thigh-high slit skirt is a big celebrity favorite, seen on the likes of Lily Collins, Rihanna, and Elizabeth Olsen — there are plenty to choos from. It seems the uber-sexy thigh-high slit skirt is the “it” item for Spring and a great inspiration for start preparing your Summer sexy stems.
The gowns are glamorous, the performances divine, but our favorite thing about award season is the front row seat to what is sure to be the next big “must have” in each of our wardrobes. This season’s tiniest detail to make the list is the ear cuff.
Now before you settle on visions of a bold punk, chain link statement, today’s ear cuff is down right ladylike in variations of crystals, diamonds — even pearls! — all tightly pinned to the ear. Perfect for the red carpet, or for a casual weekend brunch with the girls.
Jennifer Lawrence, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Rashida Jones — check out the slew of celebs sporting a variation of the ear cuff and we bet you’ll be rushing off to snap up some ear-candy of your very own.
So, can we all agree that Beyoncé’s relaxed wave bob, dewy complexion, and soft hazy eye makeup stole the show at last night’s Grammy awards? From her highly anticipated “Drunk in Love” performance with husband Jay Z — where Bey-Bey rocked a freshly showered, undone look — to her floral peek-a-boo lace entrance frock, Queen Bey most assuredly stole the show.
Of course, Beyoncé wasn’t the only winner in the best-dressed list department. Taylor Swift nailed it again, this time trading in her signature award season red pout for a softer more natural hue, which seemed to be a trend as a pregnant au natural Ciara, and pop singer Rita Ora, known also for her signature red lip, followed suit.
Acting as exception to that rule was the nearly-black bordeaux lip that’s become a trademark of newly dubbed rock-Princess Lorde, and was also spotted on Katy Perry.read more
