In between their awards ceremonies, charity events, and their careers celebrities are photographed while out and about, living their lives – in the sometimes excruciating heat! – just like the rest of us. It must put some pressure on them to try to look good at all times, so that they don’t find themselves plastered on the front pages of some tabloid magazine in a really horrible outfit.
The first photo is of actress/singer Vanessa Hudgens who is strolling the streets of NYC, sipping iced coffee in a cool pair of distressed, bleached blue jean shorts that is paired with a gauzy white button-down shirt, three quarters open. Even though her shirt is mostly undone, it is still manages to cover all that is important, while remaining sexy. Vanessa’s pointy toed flats and blue Aviator sunglasses are the perfect accessories for her look.
Another celebrity street photo shows singer John Legend and model/wife Chrissy Tiegen doing some shopping in the stores of NYC. John looks striking in his military inspired, double-breasted black overcoat that is accented by large silver buttons and shoulder epaulets. Paired with his indigo jeans and simple black t-shirt, the coat becomes the focus of John’s outfit. Chrissy looks adorable in her wide brimmed, navy hat, plain white t-shirt and leggings that are tucked into boots. Both John and Chrissy are wearing great outfits for a day of shopping.
The next celebrity couple caught by the paparazzi is actress Ashley Tisdale and husband Christopher French, who are leaving a café. Ashley is wearing the ever-popular maxi dress in black with a cool matching straw fedora and a great pair of black leather sandals with fringe and studs. She accessorizes well with the floral hobo bag and blue tinted shades too. Her husband Christopher is playing it safe with a black button-down and a pair of pull-on shorts for his day out on the town.
Just this past Sunday was the 69th Annual Tony Awards that was held at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. It was a celebration of the Broadway production achievements for the past season. The award show itself is a musical extravaganza that is loaded with celebrities, as well as talent. Prior to the show, there is a parade of fashion across the red carpet of celebrities. Some of the fashion is fabulous and some, not so much.
Starting off with one of the best dressed women at the Tony Awards is Vanessa Hudgens. The former child actress and singer is certainly all grown up looking in her Naeem Khan abstract floral halter gown. The coral flowers with pops of yellow, on a cream colored background was a great color for Vanessa and the plunging halter top with cumber bun-style waist, along with the full pleated bottom made her look like the Queen of Spring.
On the best dressed men’s list for the 69th Annual Tony Awards was boy band singer and actor Nick Jonas. He looked simply dashing in his Louis Vuitton solid black tuxedo with traditional satin lapels, trousers with side striping, and a crisp white dress shirt. This particular suit hugged Nick’s shoulders and gave him a waist-shape that was very flattering. Sometimes, a classic choice is the best.
During the presentations, there was a “double take” with actresses Anna Chlumsky and Debra Messing, as they arrived to the stage in very similar gowns. I have to say that I really didn’t like either of them. Anna’s gown was a little more shapely in the placement of the straps, but the overall look with combination of black, eggplant, and a maroon stripe at the bottom just left me feeling confused. Debra had a more tonal look, but the fit was terrible and not very flattering.
At the top of the guy’s worst dressed list was actor Alan Cumming. He is always striving for a unique look, but this one is just bizarre with the Bermuda style shorts, black high-top shoes that are paired with a patterned blue and white jacket. I guess he was probably one of the coolest in temperature at the awards show.
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.
