Leading ladies Julianna Marguiles from The Good Wife in Reed Krakoff & Kerry Washington from The Fixer in Marchesa.

Carrie Preston, I love this lady in The Good Wife, she plays that kooky lawyer. She is in a gorgeous dress by Romona Keveza.

emmys2

Julie Bowen from Modern Family in Zac Posen & Claire Danes from Homeland in Armani Prive. Claire’s dress might have looked better on someone with boobies.

emmys3

Ariel Winter from Modern Family and Rosie Byrne in Calvin Klein, a red carpet version of the baring midriff trend.

emmys11

Alfre Woodard in tadashi Shoji and Mindy Kaling from The Mindy Project in Georges Chakra.

emmys9

Heidi Klum from Project Runway in Versace and Kaley Cuoco from The Big Bang Theory in a Vera Wang gown, Aldo clutch and Jimmy Choo heels.

emmys8

Sofia Vergara from Modern Family in Vera Wang and Kelly Osbourne from Fashion Police. Sofia has found a winning formula in mermaid dresses and she is sticking to it.

emmys7

Blair Underwood and LL Cool J, I am starting to think that LL Cool J keeps recycling the same suit and beret for these awards functions.

emmys4

Amy Poehler from Parks and Recreation in Basler and Christina Hendricks from Mad Men in Christiano Siriano.

emmys14

Tracy Morgan from 30 Rock with Megan Wellove and Shaun Robinson in Nicole Miller.

emmys10

Allison Williams from Girls in Ralph Lauren. Don Cheadle from House of Lies with his wife Bridgid Coulter.

emmys6

Lena Dunham from Girls in Prada and Zosia Mamet also from Girls in an Honor dress. Both these dresses qualify for the worst dressed and some needs to explain to me what is up with the black bra thing on Zosia’s dress?!

emmys15

Sarah Hyland from Modern Family in Carolina Herrera and Padma Lakshmi in KaufmanFranco.

met gala 2013

The 2013 Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala better known as the Met Gala took place last night. The theme was Punk: Chaos to Couture.

Beyonce in Givenchy. Not my favourite looks from her but spot on with the theme.

beyonce

Kim Kardashian also in Givenchy with Kanye West in Riccardo Tisci. I don’t like the fact that we don’t know where Kim’s arms start and end in this number.

kanye kim

Madonna also in Givenchy took the theme too literally, just. too. much. Katy Perry in Dolce & Gabana, Katy’s looks have been a bit dowdy lately, I don’t know what is going on with her and the hemline of this dress is not flattering.

madonna & katy perry

Sarah Jessica Parker in Phillip Treacy, trust that SJP will go over the top. I am not sure about the tartan boot, love the Mohawk thing on her head.

sarah jessica parker

Christina Ricci in Vivienne Westwood an explosion of tartan, I don’t like it, looks like a kilt gone wrong.Anna Wintour in Chanel with her daughter Bee Shaffer in Dior. The ombre embellishment on Bee’s dress makes it look cheap and Anna’s floral print is not winning.

christina ricci bee shaffer & anna wintour

Alicia Keys in Jason Wu added red highlights to her hair for a little punk but her dress is too safe. Kerry Washington in Vera Wang.

kerry washington & alicia keys

Rooney Mara in Givenchy the dress is beautiful I am just not a fan of the zips. Heidi Klum in Marchesa I feel like I have seen this dress on Heidi so many times.

rooney mara & heidi klum

Gwen Stefani in Margiela, such an easy theme for Gwen to rock and she decided to keep it simple.  Chanel Iman in J Mendel she added a touch of colour in her hair for the theme and played it safe with this on trend striped dress.

gwen stefani & chanel iman

Nicole Richie in Topshop her makeup and hair delivered. Rita Ora in Thakon she always takes risks and decides to play it safe at the Met, I don’t get it.

nicole richie & rita ora

Emily Blunt in Carolina Herrera love the top knot bun and punk make up, the dress is too safe and boring. Taylor Swift in J Mendel.

taylor swift & emily blunt

Emma Watson and Miranda Kerr showed some skin and looked gorgeous.

miranda kerr & emma watson

Anne Hathaway in Valentino she is not recognisable with her blonde hair, I love this look, she stuck to the theme but she still looks so classy. Nina Dobrev also rocked a classy punk look in Monique Lhullier.

nina dobrev & anne hathaway

Jessica Alba in Tory Burch she looks cute. Joan Smalls with Tom Ford in one of his designs.

joan smalls tom ford & jessica alba

Jennifer Lopez in Michael Kors love, love love! The coif, the print, errthing, just love, knocked it out of the park!

Miley Cyrus in Marc Jacobs too much.

Giuliana Rancic in Falguni and Shane Peacock and Eve rocked a goth look.

Blake Lively in Gucci.

Cameron Diaz in Stella McCartney love this look, stuck to the theme but still looking classy, just be careful of the spikes on that belt. Solange Knowles in Kenzo she looks so afro punk.

cameron diaz & solange knowles

Nicki Minaj in Tommy Hilfiger played around with her hair to suit the theme. Naomie Harris in Donna Karan and the feathers?

naomie harris & nicki minaj

Kate Bosworth in Balmain. Kristen Stewart in Givenchy, I love the colour of her jumpsuit.

kristen stewart & kate bosworth

 

Kate Beckinsale in Alberta Ferretti, I love the punk earrings. Lala Anthony in Zac Posen looks nothing punk though..

kate beckinsale & lala anthony

Gwyneth Paltrow in Valentino its just way too much pink even for punk. Ashley Olsen in Dior.

oscar after parties pt1

Of course the Oscars have after parties and depending on your star ranking be it A-list, B-list or dare we go beyond that, it will determine which party they get invited to. Here are some of the red carpet and inside the parties pics.

Paula Patton – more metallics and I love it, she looks so sexy, the dress hugs all the right curves.

Kim K – I don’t think Kim knows how to dress for her fuller fram yet, she keeps squeezig herslef into all her skinny outfits.

Natalie Portman – I love small details like the black ribbon bow, it brings a classy element to the dress.
