Wardrobe Wednesdays: Ashanti @ 2018 VMAs

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!

Dress:

1. DHGate, $164.81

2. Fashion Genie Boutique, $77.00

Wardrobe Wednesdays: Blake Lively @ CinemaCon 2018

Blake Lively style, fashion, CinemaCon 2018

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.

Wardrobe Wednesdays: Shailene Woodley @ 75th Golden Globe Awards

Shailene Woodley Golden Globes 2018 fashion

The 2018 Golden Globes were freaking amazing on Sunday! As anticipated, almost all of the celebs in attendance wore black in solidarity with #MeToo and the Times Up movement.

So many well dressed celebrities showed up on the red carpet in Beverly Hills, California, but Shailene Woodley won me over with her Ralph Lauren Collection ensemble.

The actress wore a gorgeous black floor-length skirt with a belt and a houndstooth pattern turtle neck. The black skirt flows so nicely with the other pieces, and I love the houndstooth pattern on her so much! The fact that she didn’t go with a traditional gown for the ceremony really excited me.

1. Bloomingdale’s, $80.00

2. Unique Vintage, $58.00

Skirt:

Wardrobe Wednesdays: Sabrina Carpenter @ #AMA2017

Sabrina Carpenter, 2017 American Music Awards red carpet fashion

From Selena Gomez’s new blonde locks to Diana Ross’ Halloween look, the American Music Awards red carpet was waayyyy too exciting this year.

I was pretty mind blown when singer Sabrina Carpenter showed up wearing a multicolored plaid Missoni coatdress. I was all “Wait, what?! A coat that doubles as a dress? Yes, please!”

She paired the coatdress with tan over-the-knee boots from Casadei, bringing a light tone to the colorful ensemble.

This outfit is one of the most brilliantly beautiful things ever.

See below for the original boots (marked with *) and a few other pieces inspired by Sabrina Carpenter’s 2017 AMAs look.

1. Pendleton, $49.99

2. Missoni, $3,650.00

Wardrobe Wednesdays: Emma Roberts @ 2017 Toronto International Film Festival

Step aside, LBD, the little white dress is comin’ for ya.

On September 9, Emma Roberts attended the premiere of her new film Who Are We Now at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival.

She posed for pics on the red carpet wearing a cute collared mini dress in white paired with a beige top handle bag and embellished black pointed toe heels.

What makes me love this outfit the most is the fact that she mixed all these neutral colors together. I could never pull that off!

I also really like the sleeves of the dress. Without the bell sleeves the look would be way too serious!

For those of you still in warmer weather (and for those of us making the most of what little warm weather we have left), check out the links below for the some of the original pieces (marked by *) and a few alternatives to steal Emma Roberts’ ensemble.

Wardrobe Wednesdays: Zendaya @ 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards

Zendaya 2017 MTV Movie and TV Awards fashion

Apparently, it might not be easy being green, but sure is easy wearing green.

Over the weekend at the 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards, Zendaya graced the red carpet in a gorgeous green sheer maxi dress by Zuhair Murad.

Similar to Pantone’s 2017 Color of the Year, Greenery, the dress is a gorgeous shade of light green, featuring a plunging neckline and embellished with a lovely floral design.

This shade of green doesn’t seem to be very popular when it comes to sheer maxi dresses, but below are a few options inspired by Zendaya’s look.

Dress:

1. 6pm, $219.00

2.  Lulu’s, $78.00

3. Forever 21, $18.99

 

Wardrobe Wednesdays: Kerry Washington @ 23rd SAG Awards

kerry-washington-23rd-sag-awards

Kerry Washington was a guardian angel in white at the SAG Awards this past Sunday.

Instead of wings, she wore a safety pin on the left sleeve of her embroidered Roberto Cavalli off-the-shoulder gown to show solidarity with those affected by Trump’s travel ban.

I love the soft look of this dress. I bet it feels soft too, like a pile of cotton balls. The white contrasts so well with Kerry Washington’s dramatic black smokey eye makeup.

Below are two dresses inspired by the look.

Dress:

1. Shopbop, $1,495.00

2. GILT, $399.00
