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.
If you're like me, you're tuning into E's Red Carpet to see what the stars are wearing. It's my favorite portion of the Emmy's to see what everyone is going to be wearing. For those that are tuning in at 5pm EST, you'll find that the first hour is dedicated to predictions and Fashion Police! Moments before Kelly Osbourne went on, she tweeted out this phenom J Mendel dress which looks amazing on her. I love the Kelly has definitely stepped up her fashion game over the past few years and has become someone to watch! In addition, I love her shoot for Palladium Jewelry which you can see in a number of magazines (and yes I did shoot a Get Palladium Pretty campaign which is in Cosmo's October issue as well as a fun video).
Of course I would have paired the following accessories with this look as I love a bit of that aged look with my jewelry. Due to the dress having such a statement effect, I love that you can choose these fun whimsical elements that can add to the entire look! Stay tuned for more looks that I'm loving by checking out my She's Kimmie Tumblr page to see other quick snaps of some of my fave looks (Kelly Osbourne, Christina Hendricks and Padma Lakshmi)!
UPDATE: Kelly did confirm that she is wearing Palladium which you can find out more about this light weight, luxe jewelry and of course find out how you can win a piece of your very own by visiting - Get Palladium Pretty.
Paul and I closed tonight at Falguni and Shane Peacock. I have to say that I was not familiar with this line but I'm definitely happy that I attended the show! In addition, I love that I was sitting right across from Joan Rivers and loved watching the show while seeing her reaction (it was like a mini Fashion Police live without hearing the commentary but loved the face reactions)! As always, you can enjoy the final walk as this show had a lot of vibrant colors, see through patches within various garments but more importantly - accessories that I definitely would love to incorporate within my baubles and bits chest! More importantly, one of the models had a ring that literally wrapped around her finger in a caged effect - I'm so on the hunt to get this piece!
Last night many were glued to the 83rd Academy Awards whether it was watching Red Carpet coverage and/or the show itself. While many debated about the format of this year's show lead by Anne Hathaway and James Franco, I was pleased to see a number of phenomenal looks as well as fully styled with fabulous accessories. Of course, no coverage is complete without listening to Joan Rivers on E! Online's Fashion Police but for now enjoy our top pics.
This year blush, oyster and cream rocked the red carpet. Although these colors are amazing, they can be hard to wear when you think about the lighting and also the skin tones of those wearing the pieces. Obviously, Halle Berry looked phenomenal as always and I loved her ring. Camila Alves, Matthew McConaughey's other half of a gorgeous pair, looked phenomenal in a simple deep plunging neckline full circle black gown with a simple bracelet and ring. My number one look was from Jennifer Hudson. She looks phenomenal and rocked this tangerine dress that was paired with purple heels and of course the appropriate amount of wrist bling with a phenom ring! Finally, Sharon Stone stepped out and up in a look that reminded me of why I loved Casino. She showed that women of any age need to rock the carpet and also that the older set can still make the younger think twice before hitting the carpet. In a dress that had plummage of its own, she was paired with a phenom orbed cocktail ring and a miniaudiere clutch that made me drool as soon as it hit the carpet. As we continue to find out the stylists, this post will be updated with what accessories were worn!
Tonight is one of the biggest nights in terms of awards with the 83rd Academy Awards for the Oscars airing and for those that love seeing as much glitz and glamour as possible, we'll all be glued to watching our favorite Red Carpet coverages. I'll be watching E! Red Carpet to get up to the minute access on all the dresses, accessories and more. Tomorrow, you'll see my faves and of course we will all want to know the misses which you can catch back on E! during Fashion Police with Joan Rivers! But in the midst of the show and programming wrapped around it, there are the parties. Whether you've organized something officially or are just thinking of it, we thought we would give you a hand.
As many of you know, Kitten Lounge started with a decor component and last summer, we decided to switch it out for other content. But based on comments, suggestions and fun partnerships - we're bringing it back. To get us back on track, we're presenting fab items from our fave stores that you can still run out and get some items to be Oscar watching ready! We love Pottery Barn, CB2, Crate and Barrel and West Elm! Although we don't have Williams-Sonoma, we're a fan of them too! You know that cocktails are an essential but when we think about nibbles you know that it's always a hit when it comes to cheese and sushi - or anything that you can just grab and munch on! It's nice to have an ongoing spread that is within reach so that you never have to look away from all the drama. We'll keep you in the loop on what we're loving as we will be tweeting from the start of the red carpet action and we will also let you know about people we love that are on the carpet covering live as well! Make sure to follow @Cocoabebe and @KittenLounge with the hashtag #KLOscars to stay tuned.
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!
