This year’s MTV Video Music Awards
red pink carpet was a hot mess.
From half-naked dresses to devil costumes (does Amber Rose realize it’s not even October yet?), the fashion looks I saw were a cry for help. Seriously, guys. This isn’t that hard. Wear a casual pantsuit if you can’t figure out what to hide your tatas and hooha with.
Regardless, most of the men looked SUPER (looking at you Maluma) and I’ll definitely give honorable mention to Camilla Cabello and sisters Chloe x Halle.
All of that aside, Ashanti won the night for me.
The singer showed up in a stunning silver number with not one but two slits. The gown was strapless with long sleeves and went beyond floor length.
This is the most leg I saw on the pink carpet without being basically naked, by the way.
I love how tasteful this look is. She shows off so much skin but still manages to leave enough to the imagination.
See below for two options inspired by Ashanti’s VMA dress!
1. DHGate, $164.81
2. Fashion Genie Boutique, $77.00
Blake Lively is definitely on my list of celebrity style icons, and this outfit she wore to CinemaCon 2018 may have just boosted her to the top!
The actress wore a navy blue Sonia Rykiel blazer dress paired with graffiti Louboutin heels and a multicolored Brackish bow tie. The ensemble oozes preppy, which is a great look on her!
I think my favorite thing about the outfit is the bow tie. It ties the bold blue together with the busy graffiti on the heels.
Come to think of it, I haven’t worn a bow tie myself in quite some time. Now that the weather is warm, I think I’ll start wearing them again.

I’m going to try really hard to not think about the fact that Jenna Dewan isn’t wearing her ring anymore, in lieu of her and Channing Tatum’s heartbreaking separation 😥
The actress was spotted this week in Los Angeles wearing a simple denim midi dress paired with strappy black heels. The sleeveless dress would have looked super casual had it not been combined with those cute heels, in my opinion.
It’s been so long since I’ve owned a denim dress, and now I want one. If the weather in NYC would just hurry up and actually turn more spring-like, maybe I’ll get myself a denim dress to wear this season.
See below for the original dress (marked with *) and some other items inspired by Jenna’s look.
1. Stories, $115.00 *
2. Dillard’s, $79.00

Is it just me, or does Kaia Gerber always look like a deer in headlights when the paparazzi manages to snap a pic of her without her hand over her face?
That aside, I’m getting serious lazy Saturday vibes from this look Kaia sported while leaving Nobu Restaurant in Malibu with her parents Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber.
The 16-year-old wore some extra strappy and heavily buckled black suspender pants from I.AM.GIA with a black high-neck top and a pair of good ol’ black Chuck Taylor Converse sneakers.
It’s official—I.AM.GIA sceptrum pants are the classy version of sweats, guys.
See below for the original pants (marked with *) and a few other items inspired by Kaia’s look.
1. Lulu’s, $40.00
2. GAP, $24.95

Needless to say, the Scandal/How to Get Away With Murder crossover episodes were freaking stellar last week during TGIT. In addition to the plot, the Scandal half of the crossover, “Allow me to Reintroduce Myself,” featured some great winter fashion from Annalise (Viola Davis).
At the end of the episode, Annalise is walking down the courthouse steps with Olivia Pope wearing this gorgeous yellow wool trench coat. She paired the coat with a dark brown designer handbag, as the women of Shondaland usually do.
This is my favorite shade of yellow so I basically went nuts when I saw Annalise in this coat!
See below for some items inspired by the look.
1. ShopBop, $350.00
2. Banana Republic, $97.99
3. Neiman Marcus, $1,595.00

Over the weekend, celebrities broke out their best black award show attire for the 71st BAFTAs at the Royal Albert Hall in London. Ruth Wilson caught my attention with a super sophisticated Dior tuxedo suit, which I absolutely LOVE.
The actress paired the tuxedo suit with a embellished cream-colored sandals and a red lip, keeping with the polished yet fun award show vibe.
I’m totally in the market for a tuxedo suit for this upcoming spring season. I cannot get over how amazing the straight leg pant looks on Ruth Wilson!
