Golden Globes 2017: Best Looks of the Night [Photos]

Awards season kicked off on Sunday, January 8 with the 74th annual Golden Globe Awards. This year I was stunned at how many amazing red carpet looks I fell in love with. Last night’s looks ranged from sexy and princess-like, to modern tuxedo suits and elegant fitted silhouettes.

Here are my favorite looks of the night and the designers they wore.

Trends of the night included plunging necklines and women who weren’t afraid to wear suits. I absolutely adored Mandy Moore‘s Naeem Khan cape dress, she looked angelic. Ruth Negga has become one of my favorites and that shimmering Louis Vuitton dress was like liquid gold! I personally believe that Kristen Bell and her Jenny Packham dress deserved way more attention!

Best dressed at the Emmys 2014

The Primetime Emmy’s 2014 were a grand event that honored the best talent on the small screen.

Starting the eventful night was the red carpet where fans and celebrities got to showcase their gowns and jewels for the cameras.

This year I had a couple favs and there was definitely a favorite color being, white and red.

No doubt about it that Camila Alves & Matthew McConaughey were the best dressed couple of the night! They look out of this world and drop dead gorgeous. Camila stunned in a Zuhair Murad dress & the actor in a Dolce&Gabbana.

The one that surprised me the most was Sarah Silverman in her forest green Marni dress.

Natalie Dormer was a hit in J Mendel dress and Sofia Vergara was  a vision in Roberto Cavalli.

Throwing It Back: Fashion Week Edition #LAFW

LA-Fashion-Weekend

Hello La Vida-ers! Welcome to the first Thursday of February so in celebration of New York Fashion Week I’ll take you back to when I covered a smaller Los Angeles Fashion Weekend back in 2012.

Read the published article below or on Celebuzz HERE!

This past Friday LA Fashion Weekend at Sunset Gower Studios kicked off in Hollywood, where Celebuzz got an exclusive seat to all of the weekend’s designers as they showed off their hottest new collections. Opening night brought us LA-based designer Anthony Franco’s SS12 presentation where he told us about his past trip to Mexico that inspired his line,

“As soon as we landed there was a sunset and we saw the orange and pink sky meet up with the beautiful blue ocean and at that point I knew my collection was going to have those color pallets. I sort of fused the two between the men’s collection and the women’s.”

The weekend’s lineup continued with shows from the ever creative and fierce Betsey Johnson, Karen Capili, Kelly Nishimoto, Dina Bar-El and Beach Rays. Some of the top buys, industry elite and stylist were among the invitees as well as some of today’s most recognized celebs.

Jack Black was one of the first stars to come out on opening night, along with True Blood star, Tara Buck, Glee’s favorite teacher Matthew Morrison who came out to support his model girlfriend, who walked in the shows all weekend, Angela Simmons sat front row for the Betsey Johnson show, as well Grey’s Anatomy  star Sarah Ramirez,  among others.

The three day celebration consisted of five shows mixed with astonishing formal gowns for all types of celebrations, flowy light-toned beachy wear, cut out party dresses, black, grey and white patterned dresses, body hugging evening wear, fun and flirty sleepwear and of course the fierce girly looks from Betsey Johnson.

First to shine on my list is none other than Sarah Michelle Gellar. As a die-hard Buffy fan, she is always on my love list. Her white and black pleated dress was perfection on her tiny frame and she looks as gorgeous as ever. Next is the never aging Sandra Bullock. Can you say stunner?! While her dress isn’t my absolute fav, her makeup is flawless and she looks perfect.

Another rising fashionista is Bailee Madison, this past year was her greatest year in fashion, need a refresher, click HERE. Her coral dress with cutout black heels showcase her in a fun and age appropriate manner. Can we talk about how HOT Jessica Alba looked in all white? I mean come on!

Let’s not forget about my favorite lady vampire, well at least on screen, Nina Dobrev. The Vampire Diaries leading gal was a knock out in a black, long sleeved, bedazzled, mid-calf length, Jenny Packham dress. Among my other favorites were Jennifer Hudson in an all white looking very slim and sleek, and Anna Faris in a nude sequin pant suit won my heart. While many weren’t for this look, I thought it was super fun, casually cool and appropriate for the People’s Choice Awards. Then who can forget about the shining Britney Spears! Looking fabulous is her signature nude and glitter, sequin dress. Looks like she’s in great shape and can you believe she won her FIRST PCA?! Really, it was a shock to me as well.
