House of Z - The Zac Posen Documentary

I think it's a fair assessment to say that Zac Posen has become a household name. If you don't know his brand of elegant and sophisticated womenswear, then surely you know him as a permanent judge with Project Runway.

As a young and extremely talented twenty-one year old, Zac Posen rocketed to stardom within the fashion industry - one of fashion's golden boys. His red carpet looks were showstoppers and graced A-list celebs like Gywneth Paltrow and Kate Winslet. But as we all know, what goes up, eventually must come down and golden Zac was not exempt. 

This documentary, directed by Sandy Chronopoulos, will premiere on Vogue.com on September 6 and will take us through the highs and lows of Zac Posen's career. 

Watch the House of Z trailer above.

The Oscars Red Carpet Fashion 2017

A-list beauties everywhere at The Oscars but there was only one real risk-taker and that was Janelle Monae - she gets my best dressed. She wore that Elie Saab gown like a winner. Look through the slideshow above to see my fave picks, and to be clear, these ladies and gents were gorgeous, smashing and glamorous, but I want to see show-stoppers at The Oscars. Of course, one can say that the La La Land / Moonlight fiasco was a show-stopper. Literally!

Emma Roberts in Vintage Giorgio Armani at The Oscars

EMMA ROBERTS ARRIVES AT THE OSCARS® IN VINTAGE GIORGIO ARMANI GOWN & ATELIER SWAROVSKI FINE JEWELRY AS PART OF RED CARPET GREEN DRESS INITIATIVE

Red Carpet Green Dress celebrity partner, actress Emma Roberts (“Scream Queens”) showcased a form of sustainable fashion when she arrived at the 89th Academy Awards® wearing a classic Giorgio Armani gown from his very first Prive’ collection. The gown was accessorized with exclusive pieces from Atelier Swarovski Fine Jewelry. This is the first time vintage fashion has been put under the spotlight by Suzy Amis Cameron’s eco-conscious cause as a solution to help better the environment.
 
“Red Carpet Green Dress is always researching ways to help improve the planet and the lives of others,” states actress and environmental activist Amis Cameron. “As a culture, we are inundated with messaging of wanting and needing the latest ‘new’ product. But by recycling gowns, we are making the ‘old’ new again and finding the beauty that already exists. It is an important form of sustainability.”
 
The spaghetti strap couture dress, which originally debuted in Paris in January 2005, is embroidered with cream crystals and waves of small white jet beads featured in a two-tiered skirt. The dramatic plunging bodice is made of jet and black crystal teardrops and is completed with a black satin cummerbund at the waist. 
 
To complete the head-to-toe look Emma Roberts wore exclusive created diamond pieces from Atelier Swarovski’s first fine jewelry collection. Inspired by nature and driven by science, Swarovski brings conscious luxury and innovation to the red carpet with the Atelier Swarovski Fine Jewelry Collection, handcrafted in a Parisian atelier and featuring Swarovski Created Diamonds and crystals.  Swarovski Created Diamonds are grown in a state-of-the-art lab and have the same optical, chemical and physical attributes as mined diamonds.

To qualify as a Red Carpet Green Dress eco-conscious garment, each piece must either be made from recycled, organic or repurposed materials, use handmade detailing or incorporate natural dye processing. All resources focus on an environmentally and socially responsible design with a minimal negative impact on the environment.
 
For the 2017 Oscars-inspired campaign, Red Carpet Green Dress partnered with Atelier Swarovski and Earth Friendly Products, maker of ECOS™ Laundry Detergent to help raise funds for MUSE School CA. MUSE School CA is an environmental non-profit educational organization Amis Cameron founded in Calabasas, Calif., with her sister Rebecca Amis. The financial assistance enables students to access a transformative educational experience. MUSE School CA ensures small class size, personalized instruction and learning practices; all set within an inspiring and beautiful campus. Through these key elements, MUSE School CA paves the way in creating leaders of the future.

Golden Globes 2017 Red Carpet Fashion

The 74th Annual Golden Globes 2017                                Red Carpet Fashion

Lots of yellow on the red... The Golden Globes kick off award season with varying and glistening shades of yellows, pinks, pewter, blues and blacks. I didn't see any one singular offensive look on major celebs; just a few that could have done (without) puffy sleeves, more accessorizing and different styling. The gentlemen did quite well too. Their tuxedos were a good fit and their pants had little to no break, as it should be.

We're off to a good red carpet season... let's keep it up!

Cannes turns up the glamour even higher this May with the Cannes Fashion Festival

It's difficult to imagine that things could get even more glamorous at Cannes in May during the annual Cannes Film Festival, but it's true. It's happening. The Cannes Fashion Festival, May 20-22 will run alongside the famous film festival and attract an international audience of trendsetters, jet-setters and fashion lovers. 

There's already an abundance of fabulous fashion at the Cannes Film Festival - peruse through my photo gallery. Every A-list celeb at Cannes treats the world to a fashion show by wearing the leading labels on and off the red carpet. So really, it only makes sense that a festival dedicated to fashion would occur.

While the Cannes Fashion Festival is completely separate from the film festival, it will be happening at the same time. It's brilliant. The energy and enthusiasm is already established and empowered with the most famous names in the industry. Cannes Fashion Festival will be hosted at the luxurious Hotel Majestic Barrière, which happens to be at the heart of the action, and will feature a series of fashion runway shows from menswear to womenswear to accessories and swim. The Cannes Fashion Festival is truly "celebrating" fashion on an international platform and will be streaming live for everyone to experience the stylish three-day festivities.

I am beyond excited and honored to have been accredited as an Official Blogger of the Cannes Fashion Festival being selected from over 500 bloggers.

May is going to be EPIC.

SAG Awards 2015 Red Carpet Fashion

All I have to say is that these ladies better bring it to the Oscars next month! Now, don't get me wrong, there was plenty of glamour on the red carpet and A-listers like Emma Stone continued to push the fashion envelope, but overall, everyone played it safe to the SAG Awards. There was a whole lot of pretty, and that's a not a bad thing. My (usual) faves - Lupita, Julianne, Emma were, of course, gorgeous. I don't know about you, but I am ready for red carpet show-stoppers. And to gratify the guilty pleasure - a few train wrecks - there I said it. (I know you were thinking it!)
