Oscars 2017 Red Carpet

Viola Davis in Armani Prive

WOW what an award show. We’re likely going to have a chat about all of the things that went on this evening, but for now – let’s just get to all of the red carpet details. There was a lot of fringe, a lot of neutral color tones and “Hollywood glam.” I’ll admit, when I watched the red carpet special, there weren’t many looks that blew me away right off the bat, but as the night went on, looks started to grow on me and we were able to figure out our top 5!

Golden Globe Awards 2017

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.

Golden Globes 2016 Red Carpet Arrivals

Zendaya in Marchesa

This was, hands down, the best look of the night. It’s so hard to hate on a Marchesa gown and of course Zendaya – the 19-year old startlet that everyone couldn’t wait to see on the red carpet this evening. I’m loving everything about this regal red look. It’s so age appropriate and really very pretty.

2015 Emmy Awards Red Carpet

Kerry Washington in Marc Jacobs

The Emmy Awards started a half hour before the Seahawks Vs. Packers game so I only got to see 30 minutes of the show, but from what I saw of Andy Samberg’s intro – I probably didn’t miss that much. I did, however, peep the red carpet and tonight’s celebrities, winners, and presenters did not disappoint. This evening produced a lot of great looks that I’m excited to share! Normally, I would not be impressed by this dress if I saw it on the runway, but Kerry Washington is stunning in it.

Golden Globes 2015 Red Carpet Arrivals

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.

2014 Primetime Emmy Awards

Kerry Washington in Prada

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.

The Academy Awards 2012

I absolutely love this gown on her. It’s so refreshing to see her not wearing black for once since most of her press outfits and even gowns on the red carpet recently have been black.

*****

I spent most of the day watching the red carpet special for the Academy Awards yesterday as E! decided to start it around one if not sooner. Unfortunately, thirty minutes into the show, I decided to give up on watching it to spend my time with some great company. It’s alright – the red carpet is usually the main priority for me…that was until Ashley sent me a text that said, “We could have easily made tonight a drinking game,” which meant that I was missing a whole lot of highlights from the show.

I suppose I can just read about the rest of the stuff that happened during the show. I did, however, witness Sacha Baron Cohen as the Dictator dump Bisquick all over Ryan Seacrest’s Burberry suit. Just watching him trying to contain his anger over the situation was entertaining enough.

And with that, let’s get into some red carpet looks!

2012 SAG Awards

Rose Byrne in Elie Saab Couture

I was actually impressed by most of the looks I saw on the red carpet this year at the 2012 SAG Awards -more so than the Golden Globes. Rose Byrne, Michelle Williams, Emma Stone  were some of my favorites! I absolutely loved how Rose Byrne opted for a jumpsuit instead of a gown. It’s a risky choice, but the actress pulled it off. Also, her haircut is adorable with the look.

2012 Golden Globe Awards Red Carpet

Charlize Theron in Dior completely gets Yow Yow’s stamp of approval for being the best dressed on the red carpet last night. There was a whole lot of cream and ivory, but gosh the simplicity and elegance of this gown made me melt. The headband was also what sealed the deal for me.

2012 Critics’ Choice Awards

Kirsten Dunst in Christian Dior

I just saw a poor review on this dress, but I kind of love it! It is totally aligned with Kirsten’s style, but brought some edge to the  carpet.
