Whether on the red carpet or the street, you can’t go wrong wearing black. This week it looks like celebrities everywhere proved just that. Continuing her best-dressed streak, Nicola Peltz looked babely as ever in a hot leather two-piece ensemble for the Rio de Janeiro premiere of the latest Transformers installment. While the young actress is no stranger to showing some skin lately, we were pleasantly surprised to see Kate Hudson join in on the trend. The actress attended a New York screening going borderline Goth wearing a black strapless gown (cut-outs and all), sleek-straight hair and deep plum lips, which hit the midriff-showing look out of the park.

The 2014 ESPY Awards (the Oscars of the sports world) took place this past Wednesday, where top celebrities sat side by side with the top athletes. And did we mention, Drake had the honour of hosting the event? Yep. While all eyes were on the superstar athletes, we were completely occupied by the standout outfits over on the red carpet. Once again, LBDs were the favoured look of the night (cases in point: Cameron Diaz and Iggy Azalea both rocked it!), but Jessica Alba who donned her second gold number in the past month, naturally stood out from the rest of the A-list stars.

Oscars 2014 Red Carpet

See the Oscars 2014 red carpet »

Nothing brightens a blustery winter’s eve like some Hollywood glitz and glam. Like every good red carpet devotee, we were glued to the screen to catch all the glitz and glamour from the 86th Academy Awards in Los Angeles. We scoured the Oscars 2014 red carpet for our best-dressed actresses of the night, and without further ado, your nominees for Best Dressed are…

Breakout movie and style star of the year Best Actress in a Supporting Role winner for 12 Years a Slave Lupita Nyong’o pulled out all the stops in a periwinkle Prada princess gown complete with Fred Leighton headband and jewels. She’s been on a roll this season with carefully chosen frocks and gowns so it came as no surprise that she made the cut—we’re officially #TeamLupita. Fellow Best Actress in a Supporting Role nominee Jennifer Lawrence was next level in a red Dior peplum gown, which she yet again managed to trip on with cool girl ease.

Given her glamorous turn in American Hustle, it was only fitting that Best Actress nominee Amy Adams brought some retro glamour to the event. Keeping her best-dressed streak alive, Adams opted for a strapless Gucci Premiere gown, styling her signature red locks in a slick updo. Also sticking to the recent long blue dress trend was Sandra Bullock in Alexander McQueen. Always one to flawlessly flaunt her eccentric taste, Cate Blanchett maintained her ethereal style in a breathtaking appliqued gown by Armani Prive.

And of course, the Oscars 2014 red carpet wouldn’t have been complete without awards show mainstay Julia Roberts, marking 24 years since her first nomination, wearing Givenchy. Never one to be outdone, the legendary Meryl Streep celebrated her 18th nomination in 35 years, looking as good as ever in Lanvin.

With such a variety of looks and styles, it easy to see why the Oscars 2014 red carpet is arguably the year’s biggest bonanza of beauty and dazzling gowns. Closing out a season of terrific award shows styles with several Best Dressed nominee newcomers, it was tough to pick our favourite from the night. Who was your best dressed? Cast your vote now!

If celebrities were described by their fashion sense then Kate Hudson would be LA cool. And those are the exact words we would use to describe Hudson’s new capsule collection for Ann Taylor. That’s right; if you’ve been looking to embody Hudson’s free-spirited beachy style, look no more. The exclusive summer 2013 collection will feature a selection of chic white pieces and rose-gold accessories all inspired by Hudson’s love for fashion.

The easy-breezy collection will be available at Ann Taylor stores nationwide on Wednesday, May 22nd and will feature a selection of dresses, skirts, tops and accessories. Sophisticated retailer Ann Taylor has expressed their love for Hudson before, making her the face of their Spring 2012 campaign. “I’m so excited about the capsule collection and working with Ann Taylor”, Hudson said in a press release. “It was such an honor when they asked me to come back for the campaign and to work on a collection inspired by my personal style.”

In terms of famous mother-daughter duos, is there a pair more precious than Goldie Hawn and Kate Hudson? They both have sparkling smiles, contagious laughs and a knack for starring in films that become instant classics. (We’re not the only ones who could watch Death Becomes Her and How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days on repeat, right?) As for their relationship, red carpet snaps and paparazzi shots alike would lead you to believe that they’re an IRL Lorelai and Rory Gilmore. Well, after speaking to the pair on the phone earlier this month, I can indeed confirm: Goldie Hawn and Kate Hudson finish each other’s sentences, make each other laugh and have a genuine mother-daughter rapport that makes you wish they’d adopt you. All of this is to say, it’s no wonder that Almay selected them as brand ambassadors for Mother’s Day. (Psst, it’s Sunday, May 12!) Kate’s been working with Almay since 2010, but this is Goldie’s first involvement with the brand, so I asked the duo about their thoughts on makeup, growing up and more. Read more »

Inside Tiffany’s Blue Book gala in New York: Gwyneth Paltrow, Carey Mulligan, Sarah Jessica Parker and more


Tiffany Blue Book Gala

Gwyneth Paltrow, Carey Mulligan, Kate Hudson, Sarah Jessica Parker, Michelle Williams and Jessica Biel. The guest list for last night’s Tiffany Blue Book gala read like an Oscar red carpet.

But it was all about aqua, with New York’s Rockefeller Center bathed in pale blue light and a 4-storey high blue box erected over the ice rink. Inside was a ’20s-style supper club with mounds of lobster and beef tenderloin, free flowing champagne, plumed aerialists hovering like exotic birds and Smash’s Megan Hilty belting out show tunes. The elegant excess reflected Tiffany’s starring role in the soon-to-be released The Great Gatsby, with the $200,000 diamond headband worn by Mulligan in the film on display alongside pieces from Tiffany’s 2013 Blue Book collection which goes on sale today.

Kate Hudson vs. Julianne Moore: Who wore black best at the 2013 Golden Globes?


Kate Hudson Julianne Moore Black Golden Globes

See all the photos from the Golden Globes 2013 red carpet »

While everyone was predicting lots of colour on the Golden Globes red carpet last night, there was, as always, plenty of black. And while the old standard can look stale, two A-listers brought black into new territory.

Kate Hudson stunned in Alexander McQueen. The gorgeous black gown was a clear standout at the show, making it to the top of several best-dressed lists. The dress featured a high collar, décolletage cutout, gold embellishments on the shoulders and waist, long sleeves and a train.  With all of those details it would be easy for something to go wrong, but this dress is Alexander McQueen perfection.

Golden Globes winner Julianne Moore was equally as stunning in a custom designed black and white Tom Ford column dress. The graphic-treated minimalist dress was the perfect offset to Moore’s signature red hair, and the strategic white panels highlighted her waist and legs. Covered up at the front, with a wide open and draped back—definitely not something you would picture Sarah Palin in.

Golden Globes 2013: 23 of the red carpet’s biggest, baddest and most beautiful dresses


Golden Globes 2013 Red Carpet

See our photos from the Golden Globes 2013 red carpet »

Last night’s 70th annual Golden Globe Awards was a pretty epic lesson in red carpet trends. From the bright colours to the mermaid tails to the boob shows, the A-list all seemed to have consulted with each other’s stylists before arriving at the event. Red rose to the top of the colour charts, making bright appearances on Golden Globe winner Jennifer Lawrence in Dior Haute Couture, Zooey Deschanel in Oscar de la Renta and Claire Danes in Versace. Richer shades were worn by Naomi Watts in Zac Posen, Taylor Swift in Donna Karan Atelier and Lena Dunham in Zac Posen (the verdict’s still out on Dunham’s dress, though we really don’t like to speak negatively about such a precious human).

Pastels also seemed a strong message on the red carpet, with every hue in the candy coated rainbow being tested against the natural beauty of the night’s various stars. Jessica Alba‘s signature bronzed glow was offset by her creamsicle orange Oscar de la Renta trumpet gown. Meanwhile, Golden Globe winner Jessica Chastain chose the most ideal aquamarine on the colour wheel for her Calvin Klein gown. Bravo!

On the flip side, stark black and white (and even a combo of both with Julianne Moore’s graphic black and white Tom Ford column dress) predictably showed up en masse on stars like Anne Hathaway in beaded white Chanel, Amanda Seyfried in stunning white Givenchy and Kate Hudson and Nicole Kidman, who were both clear standouts in statement-making black Alexander McQueen dresses.

And the mermaid tails, oh those mermaid tails. Thought they were retired? Think again. The ole pyramid hem is proving to be on a clear comeback, as worn by Amy Adams, Jennifer Lopez, Taylor Swift and Jessica Alba.

As for the aforementioned boob-show, one flip through out Golden Globe red carpet gallery would show quite the bountiful selection. And really, is there much wrong with that?
