66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards


The Annual Primetime Emmy Awards have never been my favourite ceremony: my favourite tv shows rarely get a nomination or an award, so the whole event simply has no interest for me. I started covering it last year because I was surprised by the red carpet fashion; thank God, the same happened this year, even if  – I must admit – I was not as impressed as I had been in 2013. Here is my list of best-dressed celebrities.

Ladies in Red/Pink

clairedanes_emmy2014This year scarlet dresses were definitely a trend. My favourite red-clad actress was Claire Danes, who got a nomination as outstanding lead actress in a drama series for her role in Homeland.

65th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards


If you are a tv series addict like me, yesterday you surely watched the 65th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards, held at the Nokia Theatre  in Los Angeles. I unfortunately wasn’t able to watch the ceremony (I was sleeping!), but tonight I woke up, cuddled up under the blankets with my iPhone not to disturb my husband and checked the red carpet pictures on Just Jared. I usually don’t cover the Emmy Awards, but I was so surprised to see so many beautiful outfits that I’ve changed my mind. Here is the list of my 9 best-dressed celebrities.

Ladies in Red/Pink

sarahpaulson_emmys2013I love Sarah Paulson and if you are a regular reader of this blog, you know why. She’s a talented actress and a beautiful woman who has a refined style. She’s not a red carpet regular but she always sports interesting outfits. Yesterday she wore a stunning red column dress by Carolina Herrera from the Fall 2013 collection. The bright red shade beautifully complements Sarah’s complexion; the plunging neckline, the draped waistline and the bow accenting the waist turn the dress into a showstopper. Sarah completed it with red satin platform sandals, a side-swept wavy hairstyle and a beautiful Fred Leighton gold and diamond leaf cuff bracelet. This is definitely my favourite outfit of the evening.

69th Golden Globe Awards


Here we go! The awards season officially started yesterday with the ceremony of the 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards, which took place at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Hollywood. As usual, I was super-excited for this event and I must admit what I saw on the red carpet didn’t bring me down, so let’s go through my best-dressed list.

Ladies in Red

Hate her or like her, but nobody can deny the impressive star power of Angelina Jolie. She’s usually a vision on red carpets, even when she wears simple dresses, so guess what happens when she overtly plays the glamour card. She wore a gorgeous Atelier Versace one-shoulder satin dress with thigh-high slit, draped waist-line and red folded detail on the neckline. I think her style is actually boring (I much preferred her when she played the goth card), but this time she was flawless, even thanks to the red lipstick she wore.

I’m glad she opted for a simple chignon, which beautifully emphasizes the dress. She accessorized her outfit with a red Christian Louboutin Pharaon satin clutch, Lorraine Schwartz diamond earrings and ring.

68th Golden Globe Awards


Even if this blog has never been focused on red carpets, I must admit I’m pretty excited because the award season has just started = plenty of hopefully great outfits to lust over. I usually cover the Golden Globes, the Grammys and the Academy Awards: I’ve just ticked the first event, which took place on January 16th in Hollywood.
As usual, I divided my best dressed list into separate categories, according to the colour of the dresses. In the comments, you can share your thoughts about my choices and your favourites.
Pink Ladies

I’ve always thought it’s not easy to make pink dresses work on the red carpet without looking too girly, but these three actresses have proven me wrong.

Natalie Portman was one of the most admired celebrities on the red carpet and one of the winners (she won the best performance by an actress in a drama for her role in Black Swan by Darren Aronofsky).  She has recently announced her pregnancy, so she showed her baby bump off wearing a gorgeous pale pink gathered dress by Viktor & Rolf, embellished by a red glittering rose applied on the bodice. She also wore Stella McCartney shoes, a Christian Dior red clutch and Tiffany & Co. jewellery, among which a diamond necklace and stud earrings. The dress is so beautiful on her and she looked radiant.
