MTV VMA’s BEST DRESSED

Whilst the Oscars are a time for fashion-trés-classique, the VMA’s are an occassion for funky, fun and daring garb. Many artists get the balance of edge and fashion SO wrong, but these 3 ladies knocked it out of the park! Hot, youthful and still high-fashion! (Needless to say- between these garments and the N*SYNC reunion, I was very happy!)

20130826-073115.jpgTaylor Swift stunned in a floor-length, navy Herve Leger bandage dress. The plunging neckline and chest detailing gives this garment the extra glam factor, and brought her right to the top of my Best Dressed list. Leger scores a perfect 10 in terms of structure and fit! This dress is GORGE on her! The styling of this piece is perfect; great job.

I had a really hard time deciding between Taylor and her BFF Selena for the #1 spot, and I’m still on the fence…that’s how INCREDIBLE Selena Gomez looks in this knock-out navy dress by Atelier Versace! Wow! The thigh high slit, and built in exposures are incredible! She is wearing the PERFECT ensemble for the VMA’s. Completely event appropriate. Go Selena! This was one of my favorite gowns of the night for its unique qualities and beautiful structure.

20130826-073626.jpgShailene Woodley was ab-solutely beautiful in her Emilio Pucci crop top and mini skirt! I chose this for the perfect balance of color with a solid top, and the crop gives it the PERFECT youthful edge that we are looking for at the VMA’s. She nailed this fun look by styling it with classy, pulled back hair, showing off her gorgeous face and body.

All 3 ladies look gorgeous, and I would have put them all in 1st place but it’s fun to have a friendly fashion ranking. Who was your favorite look last night?

Met Gala 2013: Top 3

20130507-075933.jpg The 2013 Met Gala was a feeding frenzy for fashion-lovers!!! The punk theme is awesome, but clearly my pics for top 3 best dressed of the night are ultra feminine with accents of edge.

1. BEST DRESSED: No surprise that it’s the one and only Blake Lively!!! Gorgeous, newlywed and stunning in her Gucci Première Gown. She is the face of the brand’s fragrance, so it makes sense that she wore the Italian designer. The skirt is made of all leather and organza. Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

2. Rooney Mara’s gown is more feminine than usual (she is usually structured, edgy, and a little punk) so this look is a winner for her!! You can’t go wrong when Givenchy Haute Couture rolls out a custom made gown for you, right? I LOVE the shoulder lace detailing, and the zipper down the front.

3. Jessica Alba looks STUNNING in this Tory Burch gown, which was designed specifically for her. You can’t tell in the pic, but the reason this made top 3 (besides her obvious radiance) is the amazing detail. It is ALL laser-cut leather. The ab cutouts are great, and her Christian Louboutin spiked clutch isn’t to be messed with!

I’m sure you had your own favorites last night! Who is your pick for best dressed? I can’t wait to watch the Fashion Police Met Gala special to see who their favorites were.
