This year, we missed both the Grammy awards and the red carpet. We’ve been on a pretty good streak so far with awards shows, but today I wanted to take the day off and instead, I went to go see “50 Shades Darker” with a couple of my girlfriends. At dinner later on, the show happened to be airing at the restaurant we were at so I caught a few glimpses, but we’re likely going to catch up on all the notable performances and speeches in the next day or two. As always, Grammy fashion is sometimes the award show that produces the most talked about outfits so with that, here are our favorites along with ones that we feel we have to highlight just because!
Diane Kruger in Versace
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:
Viola Davis in Michael Kors Collection
I spent a great deal of time today glued to my TV. Those hours of the red carpet and the actual award show aren’t hours that I can get back. My two takeaways? Well, I didn’t watch enough good movies in the last year and everyone that tried to pull off a long-sleeved dress this year on the red carpet failed. I did have a couple of favorite looks though and they came from those that surprised me! I always like doing this post the night of the award show so that people can have something to scroll through when morning comes around so with that here are my favorite looks as well as those that missed the mark.
I’m actually tired of this trend with dresses being one shouldered and have been for awhile, however, I love this color on Viola and she looks stunning. I also like that she decided to simplify both her and makeup so that the dress could just do its thing. The head-scratching moment of the night for this dress was when Ryan Seacrest asked her what color her dress was while everyone at home was like “um, can’t you tell what color this is?”
Sarah Jessica Parker wearing Vera Wang
Very rarely am I ever impressed by anything SJP wears. She looks like a marshmallow in this gown and I’m not happy with the way she styled her hair. The only way this look could redeem itself is if it were sleeveless and her hair were let down.
We’ll never have another President as cool as Barack Obama. Earlier this summer, President Obama shared with everyone his summer playlist and not only was it impressive and overlapping with songs that we also listen to – he is now announcing that he’ll be throwing a festival on Monday, October 3rd. The music festival, which will be held at the White House will be called “South by South Lawn: A White House Festival of Ideas, Art, and Action” – collaborating with SXSW and the American Film Institute.
The festival will feature panel discussions, live musicial performances, and a student film festival. The panels will focus on influencers and community leaders who are doing good in the world.
A lineup for the music festival hasn’t been announced yet, but we have no doubts that this festival won’t include an all-star lineup. In fact, we’re pretty sure that he can get just about anyone to play this so…
Also, if you think that you belong at this event or no someone that should be present, you can actually nominate a guest here.
Does this feel like sort of a blast from the past? We used to write Out on the Town posts all the time when we were living in Seattle and we kind of miss it sometimes. To be honest, on most weekdays, I’m completely exhausted from the work day and I can barely muster up the energy to sit through traffic and drive an hour up to the city for dinner or drinks – but that’s when things are most happenin’! The event we’re sharing today is actually…not in San Francisco and back in Seattle! This showed up on my Facebook feed because one of my friends was attending and I thought it was such a great idea that I would share it with all of my Seattle readers in case you, too, wanted to attend. If I were still back home, you know I totally would!
This coming Thursday, Capitol Cider is hosting a “Drink and Draw Night” which apparently happens on the 4th Thursday of every month! You’ll join others in sketching a live model while using art supplies provided by Artist & Craftsman. For all of the details, click here for the Facebook event and join! because what else are you going to do on a Thursday night?
Warby Parker just opened up their 2nd location in Seattle and they are celebrating all day today! I wish I were home for it because from what I’ve seen of the photos already, the shop looks amazing. Nestled in the beautiful University Village Shopping Center, Warby Parker’s shop is also housing a stunning mural by Geoff McFetridge. Pictured below is just 1 of 2 murals that are done. I’ve always loved Warby Parker shops and how each store location is different and embodies its own personality and style. This team is kind of amazing.
And today’s event details!

C’mon…they couldn’t have just picked a celebrity like everyone else?!

We probably won’t be keeping up with this and doing multiple posts, but it did make sense to share some photos of some of our current favorite looks – just to give you a little snapshot! If you like what you see, well, then you – personally can continue following up with it. :)
I’m so behind on this, but I finally got to finish watching this in its entirety this weekend. I don’t know how many people actually agree with me – and it’s okay if you don’t – but I’m really going to miss Barack Obama as a president. He wasn’t a perfect human by any means because no one is, but he was the COOLEST President we’ve ever had. That’s not a requirement for being president, but that’s just how I feel. I’ve enjoyed hearing him speak and continue to be vulnerable in front of America and I still remember being in college surrounded by all of my peers who celebrated him being elected as President the first time and what an incredible moment that was to witness.
This is one of my favorite videos because I think more than ever, we get to see all of President Obama’s humor and it’s perfect.
Alicia Vikander in Louis Vuitton
This is always one of our favorite events of the year and all today, I wanted to just continue refreshing Fashionista so that I could see the live coverage of all of the outfits. Instead, we worked. And every 45 minutes, we ended up refreshing, but then the days get ahead of us so now we’re playing catch up now. Here’s what we did see – we didn’t like Taylor’s outfit. Not one bit. We hated Selena’s boots. We weren’t surprised by Nicki Minaj and we loved Chloe Moretz and Bee Shaffer, but what else is new?! Now, let’s get to the coverage – it’s pretty much the post we’ve been waiting for all year long. This year’s theme was Manus x Machina. This also kind of hits home for us because well… you know, tech!

Someone’s trying a little too hard, right?
