Award season is officially over and I know more than a few of you just released a large sigh of relief. That said, we had a good run this year. The Golden Globe Awards were certainly the best for entertainment value, but nothing can compare to Oscar night. It had everything you expected – glitz, glamour, drama, breathtaking performances and, you know, a few awards to give out.
Congrats to all the winners and huge shout out to Best Supporting Actress winner Patricia Arquette who put feminism ahead of her award. You rock, lady!!
But we can’t celebrate this year’s Oscar awards without mentioning the fashion. It’s important to note that you can #AskHerMore while she looks damn fine in her gown. Here are some of our favourites:
Retro-glamour took centre stage at New York Fashion Week for the unveiling of the Fall/Winter 2015 collections. From hair and makeup featuring red lips and pompadour to structured ladylike silhouettes bringing back fond memories of the 1930s and 1940s.
Get ready for winter white and creamy beiges. Oscar de la Renta and Badgley Mischka offered stunning shades of ecru. At Custo Barcelona, Marc Jacobs and Proenza Schouler there was a delicate mashing of prints and fabrics. These seemingly mismatched prints work perfectly together and will help you re-imagine the possibilities of your wardrobe.
Here are some of the best looks from NYFW. Next stop…London.
Happy Valentine’s Day! Whether or not you’re celebrating being in love with a special someone, love is in the air. Bouquets of flowers are being delivered and heart-shaped chocolate is flying off the shelves. There is one thing that can sum up the mood of Valentine’s Day – the colour red. Red roses, red velvet, red hearts, you name it.
So while we’re in the mood, we’re celebrating the fabulous red items currently on sale on The Peacock Parade. As for what to wear on your date night, may I suggest something crimson. A lady in red always gets noticed! Even if you’re on your way to a girls night at the movie theatre, you never know who you will bump in to!!
Sooooo what was that leather strap holding up Madonna’s butt? Why was Madonna flashing her butt anyway, knowing that she had that weird butt strap on? Oh the Grammy Awards were full of (fashion) surprises like Lady Gaga wearing a totally normal vegetarian dress. While the Grammys aren’t known for being the most fashionable – rock stars opt for leather versus couture…with some exceptions – here are some of the best dressed music makers from last night.
Who was your favourite?
