MET GALA 2017: THE NEW MAKE-UP TREND AND THE DRESS REVIEWS

This year’s Met Gala celebrated the designs of Rei Kawakubo‘s high fashion brand Comme des Garçons. An exhibition from May until September will continue to feature her, sometimes ‘distressed’ and ‘punk’ oriented, designs.

No wonder that some outfits seemed strange for us. To show you what I mean with that, I should present you the worst dressed list.

WORST DRESSED

The worst dressed has been Katie Perry wearing a custom Maison Margiela piece, which was designed by John Galliano. That dress is scary, it reminded me of the Red Wedding from Game of Thrones.  Madonna’s is from Moschino’s designer Jeremy Scott. Scott is famous for his crazy and colourful designs, but Madonna looked rather boring to me in this creation.

Helen Lasichanh, Pharrell Williams wife, and Caroline Kennedy both wore designs by Comme des Garcons. I added them to the worst dressed list, but I think they are less horrible then Katie’s and Madonna’s dresses.

BEST DRESSED

I’m not surprised that she made it to the best dressed list, but Ashley Graham achieved that also because of the great work H & M did on her dress by staying true to her figure.

Zendaya is the second Lady who made it to our best dressed list. She looked like a princess in her colourful dress, which had parrots printed on it. The dress was designed by Dolce & Gabbana.

CUTEST COUPLES

 

Serena Williams attended the gala with her fiancé Alexis Ohanian and Blake Lively with her husband Ryan Reynolds. They both wore Versace, but the reason I had to pick them for the cutest couple list is their happy faces. The only thing that is better than being happy at the beginning of your relationship, is when you are still happy years later.

THE MAKE-UP TREND – PINK HIGHLIGHTER ALL OVER

Even if you don’t believe me yet, you will see in the next days and weeks a lot of images and videos of artists re-creating this look. Rihanna rocked the pink highlighter look amazingly!

Plus, Rihanna is the only star who can make an over-the-top outfit look great. I don’t know how she does it, but I’ve got to tell you I love her for that. She also wore Comme des Garcons.

I know many of you will love the PINK HIGHLIGHTER look, therefore I searched for you for links where you can get them and what I found so far on Instagram to shop for you. I rather think she products she used is from her own Fenty Beauty brand, but those products aren’t available until September.

HERE ARE THE SHOPPING LINKS:

Etsy Fuschia Make-up Search

MAC Cosmetics

Makeup Revolution USA (my favourite selection)

Nars Cosmetics

BeYu Cosmetics Blush + Highlighting Powder

Urban Decay Blush +  Highlighter 

Have fun re-creating her look and don’t be shy. With this look you should go over-the-top like Rihanna.

That was it for our review. You might saw that we didn’t feature Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner or Kendall Jenner this time and the reason is that I didn’t like their outfits at all. None of the top social media models like Gigi Hadid, Bella Hadid or the other ones were chosen for this year’s list, because I am getting tired of the nude look in today’s fashion. I find images of women showing cellulite and stretch marks a lot more beautiful.

American Music Awards 2015 – Style Review

I woke up this morning and the first thing I saw was a video of Jennifer Lopez from her performance at the American Music Awards. I realized that I forgot that the #AMA showcased tonight. But thanks to the news I can now review the style and performances from the American Music Awards.

I want to start with the WORST DRESSED list:

Z Lala

American singer Z LaLa

Jack Sparrow would say: “Oh no, the sea monster is back!” Z Lala’s outfit looks like she was going to a Halloween party. For me it’s just crazy and my worst dressed outfit. But she is always dressed like this at every event – just look at this link.

Kendall & Kylie Jenner

What were they thinking? I guess nothing! The outfits don’t look good at all. The cut outs and the combination of leather with other materials don’t look harmonious at all.

2EB5AD7600000578-3329712-image-a-249_1448240635637-horz

I am #ProKardashian, but this is a #NoGo. This is also the first time that Kylie is better dressed than Kendall. Kendall Jenner is usually the only one in this family who is chic and elegant dressed. But here the heels don’t match with the dress and the fake fur doesn’t match with the dress either. This is a complete missmatch!

Selena Gomez

2EB55FB400000578-3329712-image-a-29_1448236258939-horz

The next one with a missmatched outfit is Selena Gomez. Her show outfit was great, but this is the wrong dress according to me. Nevermind the red sequin material on this dress, but why did Givenchy combine it with an inner tube? Again there is no harmony in this dress.

Gwen Stefanie?

The dailymail named Gwen Stefanie as one of the worst dressed ladies from the #AMAs, because you can see her underwear in this dress. Oh really? Like that is a bad thing nowadays still? So you say it looks terrible on her, but when Kim Kardashian wear the same you praise her for her fashion style?

29F0ACB400000578-3138161-image-m-94_1435179792537-horz

I don’t agree with the dailymail and I think that if Kim, Beyonce or JLo can wear see through outfits, then Gwen can too!

Now let’s go to the BEST DRESSED list:

Rebel Wilson

2EB5A7D700000578-3329840-Not_so_glamorous_Rebel_Wilson_wore_a_side_draped_dress_made_from-m-47_14482409533872EB5A7DA00000578-3329840-Out_of_this_world_Rebel_Wilson_stepped_out_in_a_head_turning_sil-m-59_14482424884012EB5A78300000578-3329840-image-a-60_14482425333152EB5A07200000578-3329840-Making_her_sartorial_mark_Rebel_launched_her_fashion_line_for_pl-m-71_1448243712988

I can’t even express my joy of seeing Rebel Wilson wearing a silver dress. No black, no dark grey, but SILVER! She is such an shiny, confident and curvy star. She proves with this outfit that plus size women can wear everything they want. And the lollypop clutch fits perfect to the dress and her silver heels. This is a dress from Eloquii. Get it here. Everything on this outfit matches. 2 thumps up, Rebel!

Jennifer Lopez

WOW! Jennifer Lopez was the host of the show, made the best performance and wore the best dresses. The only reason why she didn’t made it to my number one, was Rebel’s courage to wear a silver dress. Anyone who is also plus size, knows that we mostly stick to black dresses for big events. Plus JLo dominated already the whole night. I think I would rather make her my 1,5 place on the best dressed list. Here are her outfits:

2EB7DF6500000578-3329962-image-m-46_1448255289656 2EB7DF9500000578-3329962-image-m-45_1448255228819

Dear, Kendall and Selena. THIS IS HOW TO WEAR A CUT OUT DRESS. And no mix of materials together that don’t match.

Not her best choices, but still not bad. I like the cape jumpsuit in the middle the most. More info about the designer follows below.

This looks like a mermaid dress to me. It seem simple, but this is a handmade dress and it’s stunning.

2EB7862800000578-3329962-image-a-150_1448259097152

Princess style is always a good choice.

This is my second favorite outfit of her. I just don’t like how the pants look when she walks. It would have been better if this was a dress.

And the best dress worn by Jennifer Lopez is:

If you wonder why Jennifer has such a huge smile on her face, then let me tell you it is not because she is the host of the show. It is not because she knows all the tabloids will write about her. It is because she knows they will write about how amazing she looks in this dress. It is a dress from the designer Zuhair Murad.

‘Designer Zuhair Murad grew up in Baalbek, Lebanon. Since his childhood, he always dreamt of evading to a world of fantasy. He started sketching dresses at the age of ten, quoted as saying “I don’t recall a day in my life without a pen in my hand!”. ‘

Zuhair is known for making amazing see through designer dresses for women and he is one of my favorite designers also. If you ever want to buy a dress that is worth saving, then you need to get his gowns one day.

Watch here the latest fashion show of Zuhair Murad:

Gigi Hadid

2EB57F1200000578-3329783-image-m-11_1448238217657

Unlike Kendall, Gigi Hadid knows how to look great for the #amas even if she is wearing just a white dress. You can see again some cut outs, but no mixing ov differents materials. Simple and elegant.

Meghan Trainor

Meghan Trainor choosed a simple and elegant outfit for her arrival. And a beautiful tight-fitting dress for her performance later. Especially her kiss with Charlie Puth at the end of her song was making the audience cheer loudly. It was one of the special moment of the American Music Awards.

Another special moment was the tribute for the victims of the terrorists attacks in Paris 10 days ago by Jared Leto and by Celine Dion singing an Edith Piaf song: http://perezhilton.com/tv/?from=navbar_perezhilton#.VlLu9OJ0dyk.

I also liked the performance of Justin Bieber. Yes, of Justin Bieber. I never thought I might start to like him, but I do since his collaboration with Dilpo and Skrillex for “Where are Ü now?”. Watch the full performance here: http://perezhilton.com/tv/?from=navbar_perezhilton#.VlLu9OJ0dyk. I want to point out his song “Sorry” here, because the pictures above from this performance are just amazing. Made me also want to do a rain shooting.

But the best perfomance came from Jennifer Lopez at the beginning of the show:

My last words on the show is that it was a great show, that I am happy to see that you can be famous and still plus size like Rebel Wilson and most of all that we don’t give up like Jared Leto said.

Herbsttrends Teil 1 – Langer Mantel

This is a “GERMAN ONLY” post. This means the main text is in German, but we include shopping links if you are from other countries below.

background-waterfall-white-download-free-hd-pictures-desktop

Ich schaue mir ja immer gern online an was so die Models und Stars derzeit tragen, denn ich weiß das sie immer die neuesten Trends zeigen. Das liegt meist daran das die Firmen ihnen ihre Kleidung zusenden. Und je mehr Follower das Model hat, umso angesagter ist alles was sie trägt. Und so passierte es das ich in letzter Zeit oft Stars mit langen Mänteln in ihren Bildern gesehen hab. Ich habe gleich erkannt das dies der neue Trend in diesem Herbst/Winter sein muss.

Hier gibt es eine kleine Gallerie zu dem Trend für 2015/2016:

Wie ihr sehen könnt tragen nicht nur die Stars lange Mäntel, aber auch die Topmodels und Fashionistas. Und da fängt für mich der Trend an. Kim Kardashian trägt ja seit Jahren immer nur lange Mäntel, vor allem jetzt während der Schwangerschaft. Aber wenn Karlie Kloss und verschiedene Bloggerinnnen auch sowas tragen, dann ist das ein sicherer Trend.

Nach langer Suche habe ich auf Alba Moda endlich etwas gefunden das mir gefiehl. Es gibt auf der Seite mehrere länge Mäntel in verschiedenen Farben. Ich habe aber im Bild unten nur den Kurzmantel eingefügt, weil ich mir diesen auch bestellt habe. Ich steh ja derzeit total auf den Nude Look. Daher habe ich mir nun dieses Outfit zusammengestellt:

weißes deckblatt

Ich musste 2 Schuhe bestellen. Man will ja doch eine Auswahl haben und ich probiere eh immer gerne mehrere Paare aus. Ich musste mich sogar zurückhalten nicht noch mehr zu bestellen. 😀

Ich bin echt sehr gespannt darauf wie das mir stehen wird. Und vor allem wie ich es schminken soll wenn ich es für mein nächstes Date mit meinem Freund tragen werde in Paris. Ich weiß nur das ich auf jeden Fall wieder meine roten Lippen haben will. Ich bin da so eher für diesen Look:

11825787_925835174145925_8566207013692644408_n

Ich war überrascht auf der Seite noch Kleidung zu finden in meiner Größe 48/50, aber es gibt auf der Seite auch Größere Größen. Und auch wenn der Preis teurer ist, so ist doch die Qualität eine viel bessere als bei anderen.

Dies war der 1. Teil einer “Herbsttrend” Serie die ich teilen möchte. Seid gespannt auf meinen nächsten Post und die Links die ich gefunden habe.

AUTUMN TREND PART 1 – LONG COATS

This is the first trend post that I am excited to write about. Ever since  saw Karlie Kloss in this picture wearing a long coat, I knew this is the new fashion trend. Then I found more info about this online with bloggers who wore this style also.

2D700A8100000578-0-image-m-4_1444912328206-horz

Long coats are fashionable since Kim Kardashion wears them all the time and get’s shared with her look everywhere. I might also not like everything about her and her family, but I have to admit that her style is great. That might be, because Kanye created her style and I love everything that he creates.

HERE ARE SOME COATS THAT I FOUND FOR YOU ON MY SEARCH:

Asos, Nordstrom and Simply Be UK

Update: After checking Forever 21 again I saw the khaki coat worn by Denise Bidot.
