I wanted so badly to get home early Monday evening so that I could have this post ready in time for Tuesday morning as a recap, but of course, we stayed at work a little bit later that night. The good thing about writing this post now though is that I feel like I’m not under a time crunch and I can really take my time with it.
Bee Shaffer is not exactly “in” the fashion world, but her mother is Anna Wintour and every year she continues to stun. This was one of my favorite looks from the evening. Here she is wearing Alexander McQueen with her fiance Francesco Carrozzini. #powercouple

So it’s not the most fashionable night out of the year (that’s the Met Gala!) but the CFDA is a close second! This is a post full of amazing looks. We don’t need to say anymore.

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?

Dakota Johnson in Chanel Haute Couture
On Golden Globe night, I had a very difficult decision to make. I could either watch the award show or grab dinner with some friends and watch Selma. In the end, I chose to let the show go, but only because I was able to watch the red carpet and felt like I got what I needed. Within the first 30 minutes of the E! Live Red Carpet show, I wasn’t impressed with any of the looks, but as the program went on, I felt like I had something positive to say about nearly every look. This morning, we’re kicking things off with Dakota Johnson. I never read 50 Shades of Grey, but now that I’ve been seeing more ads, I’m becoming much more curious about the film. I love that she chose this gown because she looks fantastic in it, but if I could change anything about this look, I would’ve wanted her to go completely sleek with her hair just to make it look like she didn’t walk straight out of the movie trailer we’ve been seeing for the past month.

I may have missed the entire show from being at work and out to dinner, but we’d never miss a chance of covering the red carpet.

I can’t believe it’s time already for the most fashionable night of the year! It’s crazy to think that a year has already gone by. I feel like I was making the 2013 post just last month. This year’s theme is White Tie and Decorations.
Of course we’re kicking things off with Queen Bey and Jay.

HBO released a preview for the third season of Girls and after watching this, we think that its premiere date January 12th can’t come soon enough. In the video, we see snippets of what is to come in the season and each character gives a behind-the-scenes look at how each character is developing.
“I love watching the show and just refreshing, refreshing, refreshing Twitter,” Dunham said. “I really get to find out in real time whether we’re on to something and whether things feel real, because that has always been the intention of the show.”
It’s funny because I still remember hearing when this show came out and how much I thought I wouldn’t like it. It is now one of my favorite shows. Yes, it’s true; it’s a show for basic b’s, but I think most 20-something girls feel that they can relate to the series somehow. I’m probably a Marnie. Don’t act like you haven’t categorized yourself with one of the characters either; I know you have.

As we get closer and closer to the season 3 premiere of Girls, a part of me is clinging to the idea that the news of Christopher Abbott leaving the series was just a publicity stunt. I think sometimes we – okay…I – get invested in characters in television shows that the thought of them leaving or a series ending is something I can’t accept. Remember when Marissa Cooper died on The OC? Did anyone ever truly recover from that? The show, sure as hell, didn’t.
It wasn’t too long ago that it was revealed from Page 6 that Christopher Abbott had left the show citing creative differences with Lena Dunham, but now we’re finding out that that may not have been the case.
Abbott cleared the air with The New York Times , saying it was a falling out with said role that pushed him to leave. As the show progressed, Abbott began to realize that, despite the honesty of Dunham’s vision, he couldn’t relate to his character anymore. “The world that Lena [Dunham] wrote was very real, especially in New York, but it wasn’t as relatable for me on a personal level,” he confessed.
Wait…so Christopher Abbott isn’t as sensitive as his character was on the show? I suppose it’s no shocker, but I think every girl wanted to believe that because hi – that’s why we loved him so much! It’s okay, we’d gladly accept getting to know him on a more personal level if we had the opportunity.

Rose Byrne in Custom Calvin Klein Collection
I wasn’t that into the Emmy’s this year for some reason and that could’ve been for a few reasons:
- I was stoked on the Seahawks winning. Again.
- I only cared about the red carpet (nothing new there)
- Was I the only one that thought the award show was kind of a snoozefest?
Typically when we cover award shows, we generally just stick to the fashion and that’s exactly what we’re going to do again. But here are the winners in case you are wondering – – via Refinery29
Rose Byrne’s gown was easily one of my favorites from the entire evening!
