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.
In keeping with the celebration of Halloween, I thought it would be fitting to take a peek at celebrity couple costume selections – only some of the partners got the idea right and respected the age-old balance of being fantastical yet fancy. So, what could have Fergie done to dress up and not end as a gross (in both senses) embarrassment? 3 suggestions of random and classy and fungible All Hallow’s Eve lady ensemble types worthy of an investment ends our discussion.
The first couple of note are Ryan Seacrest and Julianne Hough, who have taken on the characters of Bonnie and Clyde. Ryan channels the gangster couple’s vibe from the 1930’s with his three-piece brown suit, cocoa-colored fedora, and cap gun accessory. Julianne captures Bonnie’s fashionable flair during their crime sprees with her fitted brown tweed skirt, bright yellow pointelle knit sweater, and decorative yellow and black ties scarf.
The Golden Globe Awards have been for achievements in both television and film, since the first ceremony was held in 1944. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association awarded the 2013 Golden Globes at the Beverly Hills Hotel where celebrities walked the Red Carpet in what they believe to be outstanding fashion. Some seem to always “hit the mark” and some do not.
One guy that seems to be consistently be right on trend when it comes to formal fashion is Robert Downey Jr. Nothing is hotter right now than velvet. It is a fabric that has spanned the ages, but still manages to be both vintage and modern in its appeal. At the 70th Golden Globe Awards this year, he was wearing a two-button tuxedo jacket with a thin lapel that was made out of silky velvet. Even though it is a simple design, the fabric elevates the tuxedo jacket to a more elegant level. Also, the slight contrast in fabric of the trousers and bowtie, as well as the crisp white shirt, gives it a subtle interest.
