I'm such a fan of Kelly Osbourne! She's the perfect mix of sweet and feisty and I love seeing her on E!'s Fashion Police. I also love that Kelly takes care of herself and always shows a number of looks that are on point with the season's trends as well as (more importantly) being true to her own style aesthetic. I love the look she's rocking for Nickelodeon's Kid's Choice Awards this past weekend. You can recreate this fun look by wearing Stella McCartney Ruffled One Shoulder Cotton Blend Dress which is super chic and very easy to wear. Pair this with Giuseppe Zanotti's hot pink pump. I would have also added in (as this is a fun show) this fabulous Mesi Jilly Cowrie Shell and Onyx ring with Kara Ross's Cuff which adds some symmetry to the overall look.
Our largest focus in terms of our wardrobe as we countdown to touching down in the Hamptons is a fab bikini and you can't go wrong with sunny yellow hues! I remember watching the always fabulously fun Brooke Burke-Charvet (picture credited to Startraks) on E!'s Wild On Series. Of course now, she is on Dancing With the Stars as well as being a CEO of Modern Mom. I have to say that she is rocking this fabulous yellow bikini while away on St. Bart's - if you're like me, I don't really get in the water so my accessories are everything. Here's how you can get this fabulous look.
I'm loving Heidi Klein's stunning yellow bikini which is the perfect item to pack on your getaway. Stack a seires of Amrita Singh's bangles on your arm as it's always fun to have extra bling on your arm. I love a fab pair of wedges and this denim set by Gianmarco Lorenzi is the perfect item to complete this and many more of spring and summer's finest! I believe there should never be a naked finger, this beyond eye missing Nak Armstrong. Finally, carry everything you need in this fun Will Leather Goods Small Classic Carry All!
Happy Leap Day and why not enjoy the extra day with men that strutted their looks on red carpets and after parties at the Oscars! Uggie the dog who has been on a number of shows for his acting in The Artist, attended The Weinstein Company after party with his fabulous bowtie! His costar, Jean Dujardin looks dashing as he's waiting for a kiss from his wife, Alexandra Lamy. Who could forget the footage that we saw of Sean Diddy getting lint rolled for a number of minutes before he was ready to hit the famed carpet? Above he is pictures above with the producers of Undefeated - to his left Dan Lindsay and to the right, TJ Martin. I love that George Clooney, who starred in the Ides of March, chats up the press in his suave style for a few moments. Jonah Hill, nominated for Moneyball, brought his mom as a date and thought that he looked so cute when he was interviewed during E!'s red carpet show. His costar, Brad Pitt also looked amazing when he hit the red carpet.
Paula Patton stunned as she hit the Red Carpet for the Golden Globes, which unofficially kicks off award season! As I watched the Red Carpet on E! I was pleased to see this sunny bold choice and although many celebs hit the carpet with limited accessories, Paula had a fab clutch by Judith Leiber, Kwiat Jewelry to compliment her Monique Lhuillier strapless dress.
Paula's look was super sweet but if you wanted to pop in some edge and bit more drama, I would have rocked the black and gold choker necklace with rope detail which is available at Luisa Via Roma and the fab cuff by Aurellie Bidermann which has fab lace detailing. Finally, I'd slip on this Le Vian ring which is fabulous in gold and diamonds and definitely allows everyone to take a second look wherever your runway happens to be.
ABC's Modern Family was a win before an award even went out (amazing that all the adults in this show were nominated with the show taking away an award for Outstanding Comedy for the second year in the row, wins for writing, directing and also for supporting actor and actress Ty Burrell and Julie Bowen) Sofia Vergara stunned on the red carpet in a chiffon custom dress Vera Wang. Not only was she wearing a vibrant coral color one-shouldered crepe gown with chiffon draping and tumbled tulle (which I have to say that although red is amazing, when you're walking a red carpet you may want to rethink that choice - interesting to see that it was a dominant color theme of the night) but her accessories were phenomenal. While I watched the red carpet coverage, I thought she had accessories by Columbian designers; however, it seems that she is rocking jewelry by Lorraine Schwartz Jewelry (I'll have to double check). She rocked Casadei heels and her makeup looked phenomenal.
Makeup artist Kayleen McAdams, worked her gorge look by using COVERGIRL (who sponsored Kitten Lounge's NYFW 4th Anniversary Cocktail Party) by starting with her face and using COVERGIRL Invisible Concealer in Honey which was place under her eyes and wherever else she needed it. Next, COVERGIRL Simply Ageless Foundation in Soft Honey (#255) was applied and set with COVERGIRL’s Clean Pressed Powder in Warm Beige (#145). To finish this base, Kayleen used COVERGIRL’s Simply Ageless Sculpting Blush in Plush Peach and set that cream blush with COVERGIRL’s Classic Colors Blush in Natural Glow.
The eyes truly allow Sofia to pop as the diva that she always is (I also love the prep that was used for this as I am a huge fan of the Queen collection. Kayleen used COVERGIRL Queen Collection 1-Kit Eyeshadow in Hot Toffee in the crease, COVERGIRL Liquiline Eyeliner in Black Fire along the top and bottom lash line, COVERGIRL Queen Collection 1-Kit Eyeshadow in Black Tie along the top and bottom lash line to set the eyeliner and completed this portion with COVERGIRL Lash Blast Volume mascara in Very Black. Finally, COVERGIRL LipPerfection Lipcolor in Rapture (#280) was applied to give this perfect look that was red carpet ready.
Every award season coverage and looks are better than the previous one - which is always something that I hope for. As a whole, I'm glad to see the installation of the Stiletto Cam that took place on E's Red Carpet as well as everyone stepping it up so that accessories took a much bigger stage then they have in the past.
Congrats to Sofia who is having the launch of her line later on this week as well as to the cast of Modern Family. In addition, here are ways that you could achieve the accessories that Sofia did even if you don't have the connection of the phenomenal Columbian designers that Sofia wore - more deets on that (you'll see in today's post I am giving you an idea of how you can complete the look). As always, this post will be updated to let you know who she's wearing!
The Red Carpet Show on E! is my favorite to watch when it comes to seeing the stars. I love hearing the interaction and you never know what happens when the camera rolls and they hit the carpet. I can't wait to hear what Joan and the Fashion Police say this year about the looks that we saw last night. I have to say that yet again I'm disappointed that more accessories were not on the carpet, They were either non existent or underwhelming overall. There were times that it seemed that all the attention was placed on the dresses and the jewelry was added after the fact. As I was chatting back and forth on Twitter many of us shared the same sentiment and thanks to @JuleReDesigns and @JewelryInsider, who fun to chat with about this and you can catch up on the comments by searching the hashtag #emmyjewelry so you can catch up on those comments!
Glamour is all about the entire package, fab dresses, amazing cuts, fabulous shoes and yes earrings, necklaces, etc. But fortunately there were standouts that made it into the roundup of what definitely gets the Kitten Lounge approval. I love the fact that navy dominated the carpet, that many dresses were Greco-Roman inspired (this is a huge trend that you will also see for the holiday season so if you're wondering what would be great to wear for your holiday parties this is it) and of course going back to blush and white was also prevalent. We have a gallery of images and if you love these, you can see the rest of the images on InStyle.com!
The other highlight of the night was seeing the Calvin Klein Envy commercial with Zoe Saldana, I absolutely loved this commercial!
The 82nd Academy Awards comes to life tonight. With the gorgeous weather that we're having, one almost wonders if they should have their viewing party on a rooftop but the weather isn't quite ready for that yet (unless you have heating lamps). The best part about watching the awards is being able to enjoy the E! Red Carpet! I love thinking about the stylists working together to create the perfect looks and then to see their work come to life as they hit the carpet. Tonight, I will attending a Red Carpet Viewing Party hosted by Dove VIP! It'll be a fun night of talking about gowns, seeing who wore what and who could have stepped it up a bit.
If I was throwing this viewing together, I would definitely begin with ensuring that my table was prepped. I love wooden bowls and containers as it provides a natural and rich look. Above are some fab pieces that are perfect for any occasion - take some time to check it out and then get cracking on your predictions of best dressed, best accessory and more!
People love to ask me what I read in my Google Reader. Now you know I'm all about fashion but I read a number of blogs for a number of reasons and although my reader is always full, I feel that these are my top 5 that I check out each day (in some cases throughout)
5. Beauty Sweet Spot: I love reading about various items going on in beauty. Although I cover beauty, you know Kitten Lounge only does this on one day. Jeannine Morris, is a TV personality and editor in chief of this site. If you haven't caught her on various spots for morning shows or E!'s Emmy Red Carpet Pre Show, you're missing out. She is my go to when it comes to what's out there and what I should be keeping an eye out on. In addition, she is a friend that I enjoy hanging out with as I've known her for the past year and you will see her within my reality episode of To Be a Star which comes out early next year.
4. Golf Girl: I met Patricia earlier this year at the PGA Golf Show in Orlando. I've been a fan of her site as she covers golf and fashion, specifically, female golfers. Being someone that is starting to take up the sport again, I love hearing about new items that are coming in the market and also the fashions that such golfers as Lorena Ochoa and Christie Kerr are wearing! She is a must to read and is super cute as she makes her own videos as well!
3. Purple Blab Karen Robinovitz is the Creatrix of Purple Lab, a beauty line that has fab glosses such as Huge Lips, Skinny Hips. What I love about it is that I think that she has created an amazing team that has a focus on social media. Not only does her team have their own accounts so that you know each member as a distinct personality; however, her blog is more of a guide on how she is creating her business. It's not about sugar coating or making the story anything then it is - a business that is made by sweat and tears. If you ever considered going into any business, this is a must and being of a friend of Karen's, you get her personality and she is very much every bit of the person that you read online! Read her blog and you get the journey!
2. Elle Blog: I love Joe Zee and I have always been a fan of Elle so I'm always checking in with what they have going on! I'd say that it is probably the only "traditional" fashion magazine that has an online presence that I follow. It's a quick read and I think they do a fab job.
1. Mashable: My world is one that includes fashion, blogs, my jewelry line and social media. For me, it's essential that I stay in touch with new plaforms, widgets and more that can assist me in interacting with my readers and to assist companies when I freelance with them on their projects. I think it's essential to stay educated .
With New Years Eve coming, I thought it was essential that you guys see what I stay connected to and that if you hadn't had a chance to read these items, then you should! What are you guys reading and what gets you through the day in the worlds of fashion, lifestyle, tech, etc.
