When celebrities are away from the red carpet, they are still very much in the public eye. Whether they are out shopping in Beverly Hills, arriving at their favorite bistro, or taking a walk in the park, there is always interest in what they are doing and what they are wearing.
This month’s celebrity couple street style includes actress Vanessa Hudgens and boyfriend Austin Butler, who were spotted at the 2014 Coachella Fashion Festival. Vanessa had adopted golden tresses to replace her long dark hair, which complimented her Bohemian look with her wide brim sun hat, tomato red printed mini-dress, and her short black leather boots with fringe and dangling metal trim. Vanessa’s boyfriend Austin also gets into the Bohemian vibe with his brown fedora, white gauze button-down shirt and blue medallion patterned pants.
Next, is a photo of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, pre-marriage, strolling down the Rue Pierre Charron in Paris. Kim has on this heavily beaded grey and black dress that not only looks like it should weigh a ton, but also looks like it should be hanging off a curtain rod in a museum. The only thing I like about the outfit is her black boots. I am more a fan of Kanye’s more casual choice of his multi-layered grey hoodie with the black two-way zip jacket, baggy blue jeans, and black and white print sneakers.
On Sunday, May 18th at the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas, celebrities came out to celebrate the presentation of the Billboard Music Awards. The awards ceremony started in 1989 and are based on musical artist popularity on the Billboard Charts in the musical industry. This year, the Artist of the Year was Justin Timberlake and the Song of the Year went to Robin Thicke for “Blurred Lines”.
As with any event, the red carpet at the Billboard Music Awards was filled with fashion Some of the celebrity outfits were fabulous and some, not so much First is Singer/Song Writer/Actress/TV Personality Kelly Roland, who arrived on the red carpet in this sexy, two piece black number with a beyond-plunging crop top and split-panel, high-waisted long skirt Kelly’s stacked golden bangles and substantial dangle earrings give the overall look an exotic flare However, there should be no bending over in this dress.
Even though celebrities try their best to put together a red carpet look that will wow fashion critics, sometimes their unique outfits get attention for the opposite reason. This month, there were many celebrities who flopped in the fashion department when it came to their red carpet arrivals.
First off, is Singer/Actress Kaya Jones, who arrived to the red carpet of the 2014 Grammy Awards in a spaghetti-strap, black latex gown with a plunging neckline, and sheer panels that went from floor to hip bones. Her ultra-platform stilettos and over-sexed outfit reminded me of an episode of Elvira Mistress of the Dark. I expected a gruesome movie to follow her appearance.
Recently, an event took place at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, which benefits the Met’s Costume Institute. It is also the opening event for the institute’s annual fashion exhibit. Each year of the gala has a theme and this year was, “Charles James, Beyond Fashion”. Charles James is well known in the fashion industry for his approach to design through sculpture.
With the Met Gala, comes a red carpet that rivals any West Coast event. Some fashion looks on the Met Gala’s red carpet were classic and some were more “artistic”. At the top of the list of fashionable couples are Beyonce and Jay Z. Beyonce looked glamorous in her sheer Givenchy couture gown that was a throw-back to a look from the 1970′s Motown Era. The sheer beaded panels of her dress showed her figure, but covered what needed to be. Also, the vintage head netting and dark maroon lips added just the right touch. Beyonce’s husband Jay Z looked dashing in his James Bond style white tuxedo jacket and black trousers.
This week’s celebrity street style includes a few outfits that made the cut and a few that did not. Sometimes, something that may look good on a hanger should stay there and sometimes just one wrong choice can move a look from a great style to a bad one.
The first to make it to the A list is Actor Andrew Garfield, who was spotted on the streets of Berlin, wearing Burberry. Andrew is rocking the chocolate brown suit and mixing in a crisp white button-down shirt, topped with a double-breasted, tan trench coat with shoulder epaulets and a turned up collar. (more…)
When celebrities are living their lives outside of special events and ceremonies, their more casual looks can be seen by the whole world. So, unless they want to end up on the front pages of the tabloid papers for a fashion flop, they may want to try to maintain a certain style.
First up are Johnny Depp and his new fiancé Amber Heard. Johnny has always been in a style category all his own, but in this photo he looks like he is channeling his inner gangster with his grey and blue, wide-brimmed chapeaux, vintage-lapel charcoal 3-piece suit, and blue striped dress shirt. His fiancé Amber makes the perfect “maul” with her plunging black dress and bright red lips.
When celebrities are out of their designer tuxedos and evening gowns, their casual personal style has a chance to show through. What they choose to wear on the street and in their travels might pose as a disguise from the flashes of the paparazzi or as a beacon to attract them.
The first guy on the streets of Paris this month is Kanye West. He is sporting lots of denim with his bleached denim, button-down shirt that has a now-popular yolked shoulder, front chest pockets, a shirt tail hem, an a bit of a tear for a modern look. Kanye’s darker denim washed jeans draped inside of his work boots give him a more rural, as opposed to urban, look.
Next, are Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis, who were snapped in the airport in Iowa. Aston is ready for the wintery temperatures with the layered look of his zippered sweatshirt under a black leather baseball-style jacket. Mila is looking stylishly warm in her black overcoat with her long, layered blue scarf and bleached blue jeans. Mila’s outfit is complimented by a snap top black purse and a dark pair of aviator shades.
Last, but certainly not least, is the street stylings of Leonardo DiCaprio, who is getting his geek on with this look! His pinstriped light grey suit is accented with a baby blue button-down shirt and blue bow tie, but the upper thigh length matching shorts makes it look like he left home in his boxers. If that is not bad enough, the red pedi-socks and black shoes just add to the wrongness of it all.
