To kick off New York Fashion Week, models and celebrities attended the annual amFAR Gala. To celebrate its 19th year, the event honored both Scarlett Johansson and Versace for their support in their organization, but also their continued efforts in the fight against AIDS. Here are some of our favorite looks from the most stylish at the event:
The red carpet for me this year was just so-so. There wasn’t anything that I absolutely loved or hated, maybe in the end I just prefer things like the Golden Globes or The Oscars. Usually, the first look that I share is something that I really like. This time, though I give this look a 6/10. The sparkly blue is nice and sure the cut-outs are edgy, but it’s really not anything we haven’t seen before. Also her old school hair is just meh to me.
This cover has been up for 8 months. I still remember that one day when all of the blogs were raving about this cover and how it was a “must listen.” I decided to be really stubborn because as much as I love Ellie Goulding, I didn’t feel an emotional pull to the song “Take Me to Church.” Every time it was on the radio, I would change the channel. Every time someone tried to tell me this song was amazing, I was over it. However, a really good cover can usually change my mind. It has in the past and it definitely did with this one. I’ve since listened to this 7 times in a row.
Since the entire fashion show is such a huge televised production, the actual show is filmed almost a month early before it actually airs on CBS. There’s a whole lot to be excited about revolving the show including our favorite Lily Aldridge in the Fantasy Bra, performances by Ellie Goulding, Selena Gomez, and The Weeknd, and Kendall and Gigi’s debut on the VS runway. Here are our favorite looks below – NSFW probably.
The show contained six themed segments — “Boho Psychedelic,” “Exotic Butterflies,” “Portrait of an Angel,” “Pink USA,” “Ice Angel” and the finale, “Fireworks”
I can’t believe I’ve never actually posted this before! I used to be a huge fan of Kaba Modern. Correction – I still am, but the group that appeared on America’s Best Dance Crew are all doing their own thing now so I’m still a fan of their work individually. Not too long ago, I taught myself some simple choreography by former Kaba Modern member Yuri Tag for Ariana’s “Break Free,” but soon after I was looking for another piece. This is one of my favorite Ellie Goulding remixes and the choreography done by three members of the former group is SO good. I haven’t had the time or made the time to actually learn this, but I haven’t forgotten about it. There’s even a tutorial for it too so that should make things a little bit easier?
I was woken up by this song as my alarm the other day and didn’t think too much of it, but when I was woken up by it a second time this morning, it was all I could think about. I repeated the song six times in a row today at the office. I thought it was a little bit too sweet for 50 Shades of Grey soundtrack given what I know about the film, but that only makes me a little bit more curious that it won’t be as rough as it sounds.
Unfortunately, I was up in the air en route to San Jose this past Sunday while the MTV Video Music Awards was happening and had to miss the entire show! Just as I was getting into my seat a video was released of Justin Timberlake’s performance, but as expected I had to put my phone away RIGHT before the *NSYNC reunion. Just my luck. Coming home today, I was hoping to watch the show on my OnDemand, but reached another dead end when I saw that it hadn’t been released! So as I write this post, I haven’t seen anything, but I’ve heard lots of opinions regarding Miley Cyrus and some of the outfit choices. Here are some of the outfits worth mentioning.
Alright, so is it a little bit corny that I enjoy listening to a new girl group on the rise? I first stumbled upon Fifth Harmony when I saw them cover Ellie Goulding on the X-Factor and now that the show is over and the group is continuing on, I’m even more excited. Move over One Direction – the phase of the boy bands will be over soon.
