AMA Red Carpet Favourites

Last night were the American Music Awards, hosted in LA and loaded with performances. I don’t think I’m alone when I say that I much preferred Miley’s performance this time around compared to her notorious one at the MTV Music Awards show. Even though it still had an odd touch to it – the giant “singing” kitten on the backdrop & skimpy outfit, it was much more tame. And those quads, damn girl.

Asides from the performances and who won what award, as per usual, I just cared more about the fashion. Taylor Swift’s glittery Julien Macdonald frock looks stunning on her and is such a refreshing change from her usual award show attire. The Emilio Pucci cutout dress Nicole Richie rocked is so on trend right now and shows off her slim figure. Dolce & Gabbana are some of my designers so it’s no surprised I loved their dress that Ariana Grande wore, also because it’s all sequins! Although I personally think it would’ve looked better with a different hairstyle. Lastly, Kesha in a Michael Costello dress…yes, I just said that. Those who know me are well aware that I’m not a fan of her at all, however I have adjusted to being able to tolerate her songs. Anyways, the shape of the dress on it’s own is perfect and the side ruffle & slit just add the right edge to it.

Fall Trends: Pretty Pastels

Now is the time of year to snag that perfect new coat for Fall. However, there’s a bit of a twist to the trend this season: the colour. Normally when we see pastels we think of Spring time, like Easter. It’s been spotted on various runway shows like Celine, Proenza Schouler, Emilio Pucci, Louis Vuitton & Gucci to name a few. The most popular colour being seen is pink but there’s also yellow, blue & lavender. Seriously, just screams Easter right?

Anyways, I don’t think I’ll be buying into this particular trend this season simply because I personally don’t like to wear pastels. I rarely ever wear pink and if I do it has to be a dark pink. On the contrary though I think that these coats are a fun & girlie piece that you can challenge yourself with to see how many ways it can be styled. This trend seems to be taking it’s sweet time to hit the sites online but here are a few pretty pink coats I’ve come across!
