It was a bombshell affair at The Daily Front Row’s 5th Annual Fashion Los Angeles Awards on March 17. As for the dresses, red seemed to be the choice for the day or so it appeared. The red squad: Kate Hudson, Courtney Love, Alicia Silverstone, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Jasmine Sanders, Ava Dash, Natalie Halcro and I’ll stop to here. Everyone looked amazing. If I would have to pick a favorite, I would go for voluptuous Natalie Halcro red silhouette. On another note, my ultimate girl crush Candice Swanepoel made a rare appearance (she does that since the birth of her baby boy) rocking a silver long dress with a perfect front slit, deep cleavage and cut-out back.
iHeartRadio Awards, Los Angeles, California. It’s 14th March 2019 and the dress code is the casual red carpet look. Some artists completely ditched the glam, while the majority showed up looking ready for the party. As for who was there, read on to find out if your favorite celebrity set foot on iHeartRadio Awards’ red carpet.Embed from Getty Images
Australian singer and songwriter Jessica Anne Newham aka Betty Who posed sweetly next to American actress Katie Stevens. The two share a considerable amount in height difference, but this did not stop them from posing next to each other and then having a laugh. Pretty in pink, that’s the definition of Katie Stevens, who had the most adorable pink dress to match with her pink eyeshadow. Betty Who went for a black see-through bodysuit.Embed from Getty Images
Tiffany Young looked like a real pop star in her see trough high-knee boots and lacy cape. She sported blonde hair pinned back, a perfect cat eye and her Best Solo Breakout (Socially Voted Category) award. Good job Tiffany!Embed from Getty Images
Billie Eilish said no to glam and instead stuck to her own signature style. Despite all the black, big accessories and general moody vibe, color and optimism shine through with the help of none other than Sailor Moon.Embed from Getty Images
Now that’s a fun look Doralys Britto! I wanna wear it too! Feminine, modern and very summery.Embed from Getty Images
German rapper Cro did a really cool thing and showed up at the event, to my absolute delight. The look is relaxed with a white tee, black trousers, and white casual shoes matching just right to rapper’s famous panda mask.Embed from Getty Images
Bebe Rexha came dressed to win, and so she did. Her track “Meant To Be” featuring Florida Georgia Line received the Country Song of the Year award. It is a good song indeed. Bravo!Embed from Getty Images
Kacey Musgraves short dress is the way to go when you have such perfect toned legs. Every appearance she makes is a successful one with every detail thought to perfection.
Backstreet Boys, Alicia Keys who left home with the iHeartRadio Innovator Award, Halsey, Taylor Swift – who’s the Tour of the Year winner, Katy Perry, and so many more artists attended the event. As for the winners, congrats to everybody!
Last fashion show by Karl Lagerfeld is everywhere on the internet nowadays. Chanel lives on, yet the great designer who has been for 36 years linked to the house, has died. Watching the show, despite all the goodies happening in there, which I’ll be going in detail in second, I felt sad. Almost as if with his departure, Karl took with him the thrill and all the magic that he has built.
It’s funny how the last show under his name happened in a Switzerland like winter resort setting, Switzerland being Coco’s eternal place for rest. As for the show, magic as always. You could almost feel the breeze of icy air you would normally experience in a winter resort. And there, right in the middle of the fluffy street, the models walked beautifully in gorgeous coats and wide leg trousers. The collection carries an oversized, men’s style tailoring with chunky ’80s and even ’90s style logo jewelry look. The tweed shares the runway with knitted skirts and sweaters. And there’s the white. Simply mesmerizing, full white silhouettes, in either a dress or some fancy look with pants, top and coat, took the lead of the show. Even actress Penelope Cruz joined the fairies, dressed in a fluffy white dress and white winter shoes.
Speaking of celebs, there’s nothing better in fashion like a Chanel front row. Blackpink’s Jennie, Nana Komatsu, Kristen Stewart, Monica Bellucci, Claudia Schiffer, Gwei Lun-Me and more.Embed from Getty Images
So, so many great looks at the Oscars; which makes it hard to choose favorites – but I will do it anyway cause I’m loving it. Let’s dig into it, shall we?
Amy Adams – I had to look twice at Amy Adams look, who’s 44. Yes. 44. She looks young, fun, attractive and current. Age reversing anyone?Embed from Getty Images
Yes, bring in the yellow Maria Menounos! The look resembles one of a Disney princess, with hair looking soft and gentle.Embed from Getty Images
Laura Marano joined the yellow fun, cause she rocked this gorgeous look, which not only looks dope but suits her skin too. This time yellow is paired with a pearly pink. How the dress is designed makes these two colors sit like besties and twins in one life.Embed from Getty Images
Michelle Yeoh – In love with the dress. Simply stunning. No words more to add. Except for how gorgeous this dress is. I’ll stop. No, I can’t. I’m in love with this dress. The color; the design; the vibe; the details; the cleavage. I could actually float into a dream, mesmerized by how lovely this dress is.Embed from Getty Images
Irina Shayk – Lately, the model likes to show off her short hair. For the Oscars, she turned it into a perfect bob, for the delight of her fans and for my delight as well. She’s perfect.Embed from Getty Images
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley – The Dress! If it wasn’t for that extra detail on her off-shoulder sleeve, things would have been slightly different. However, it gets better and Rosie’s dress not only sits perfectly on her slim body but also carries details that stand out and take the look to a next level.Embed from Getty Images
Chrissy Teigen – I loved her entire look. The dress she wore has 40’s accent. The color is great too and the feathers. I wouldn’t normally expect to see Crissy in such a style yet her choice for the Oscars proves a good point. You never know what might actually suit you, until you try it on.Embed from Getty Images
Isabeli Fontana – What a gorgeous dress! She could have worn her hair up to emphasize even more the loveliness of her dress.Embed from Getty Images
London Fashion Week has just begun and I’m already in awe for these three collections:
Jamie Wei Huang’s collection at LFW is an exploring adventure, kept in place by shades of grey, mixed with blue and red. These three colors are the main characters, with blue slightly dominating more in presence and variation. Looks are build from layers of unpretentious pieces which consists of oversized shirts on top of some dress or a long skirt. Extra long scarves and socks keep warm and make it look cozy for the viewer.Embed from Getty Images
British-Chinese-Vietnamese designer A Sai Ta showcased it’s very first ‘on its own’ collection at LFW under the name ASAI. The looks carry a bit of a Peter Pan vibe, however, taken one by one, we have a bunch of good looking pieces to wear on a day to day basis. Coats have just the right feel to ‘mix and match’ with more glammy pieces, and just as good to create a very casual look. I’ve seen a handsome pantsuit and I adore the look of the skirt with a middle split leading to patterned pants.Embed from Getty Images
Gayeon collection has pieces of Victorian inspiration, at least the upper part, which makes dresses look quite tasteful. Colors throughout the entire collection are kept humble and unnoticeable but don’t be tricked by that. Clothes have so much more to offer in terms of feel and look.Embed from Getty Images
Grammy Awards was the event everyone was looking for to check out and now that it finally happened (I’ve been waiting for it for sure), we can gather around for a virtual cup of tea or whatever you wish to have, and break down all that it happened, in Glaibera’s style, of course.
Fashion-wise there has been lots of metallics – even Michelle Obama appeared in a dark sparkling pantsuit, next to J. Lo., Alicia Keys, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Lady Gaga. All ladies seemed to have spoken beforehand since each of them had the spark in the outfit.
Speaking of Gaga, the actress and singer left home loaded with trophies, which was expected to happen, thanks to her collab with Bradley Cooper on the movie ” A Star is Born” where the track “Shallow” touched the right place for many. For her red carpet appearance, the artist looked amazing. No extravagant hairstyle, but a platinum blond with beachy waves look framed her face while rocking a smudgy cat eye look. The dress is silver metallic, with an elongated sort of bow on the side and with a leg view. By far, her look is one the best from Grammy Awards.Embed from Getty Images
The second favorite look is Dua Lipa’s black and white and safety pins dress in which she accepted her Best New Artist Award. And that was only one of the two awards she got in one night, second being for her Electricity track – Best Dance Recording, a win she shares with fellow artist Diplo.Embed from Getty Images Embed from Getty Images
Amongst the guests, I’ve seen my favorite couple, Ashley Simpson and Evan Ross, both looking as dashing as always. BTS members were there too, invited to hand over the Best R&B Album Award. On the stage, before announcing the winner, RM thanked the Army and made the promise to be back. Then H.E.R. came and took her Grammy award. And that’s about it. Well not entirely. Gabriella Wilson, known as H.E.R., also won Best R&B Performance for “Best Part”.Embed from Getty Images
Moving on to performances on stage, I have to fangirl over the handsome latin trio – Ricky Martin, Camila Cabello, and J. Balvin. Dressed and white, yellow and red and rocking the stage. What a treat for their fans!Embed from Getty Images Embed from Getty Images
Kacey Musgraves won album of the year trophy and Best Country Album with “Golden Hour”. A few hours ago had no idea this name even existed, till I had to write this article, and by curiosity clicked on one of her tracks. Instant crush, let me tell you!
American Roots Performance Award and Americana Album Award went to Brandy Carlile with “The Joke” and album “By The Way, I Forgive You“.
This week has just begun and there’s already so much in the works. Fashion Week is on top of the list and is by far the most looked-after event of February, and goes further into the beginning of March when it’s all over (for a while). The shows began in New York, which is the place to be this week, literally, with both Men and Women following one after another. Fall/Winter 2019 is the phrase to talk about, and it will be for a while.
Yesterday’s Shows: Todd Snyder, Joseph Abboud, and Palomo Spain, the latter being the epitome of colorfulness and vibrancy in Men’s fashion, so far.
Front Row faces: Zachary Quinto, Johannes Huebl, Drake Bell, Cody Simpson, Neil Patrick Harris and more.Embed from Getty Images
Next on our list is 69th edition of Sanremo Music Festival, officially starting today and ending on the 9th of February. Yesterday the Festival had a celebrity-infused red carpet event, with artists such as singer Arisa, Paola Turci, Enrico Nigiotti, rapper Ghemon, Einar and so many more. The contest is taking place at Teatro Ariston of Sanremo and is being broadcast by RAI.Embed from Getty Images
Last, Deutsche drama ‘Club Der Roten Baender – Wie Alles Begann’ had its premiere in Cologne at the beginning of this week. The movie is set for its official release on Valentine’s day, definitely not in tune with hearts with chocolate, but the cast is young and talented and besides, who’s not into German dramas! As a plot, ‘The club of red ribbons – How it all began’ (translated) tells the story of six youngsters, each living their own story, till events bring everyone under the same roof of Albertus Hospital. Expect a lot of current societal issues such as family drama, body-image issues and so on. The end promises to be a good one.
Cast: Tim Oliver Schultz, Damian Hardung, Luise Befort, Timur Bartels, Ivo Kortlang, Nick Julius Schuck.
Arranged to look like you’re having an out of the body experience right in the backyard of a glamorous Italian villa, Chanel took its pinks, the little flowers, the bride, and gorgeous mules down the runway for showcasing its Couture collection for Spring 2019. Each silhouette walked around a decent size pond or pool, depending on the type of imagination you have, and posed right at the middle, with a perfect arranged background to emphasize the amazingness of all the craftsmanship that went into this fine collection. The mules I was talking about are designed to have a strap behind, so ultimately, we are left with a very refined shoe. Very lady-like too. As for the pink and violet, I can’t even breath. The shades that were chosen are heavenly soft and pure looking. All the other details are added only to reinforce the general ‘gentle and playful’ vibe. All the other colors known to be Chanel-approved are having individual moments of triumph, ultimately balancing everything out. It all looks eye-catching and grand, that’s for sure.
Front row: Kristen Stewart, Pharrell Williams, Diane Rouxel, Marion Cotillard, Go-Eun Kim and more.Embed from Getty Images
Balmain show had a bunch of badass tracks to go with the flow of 90’s inspired looks from the Men’s collection for 19/20 Fall. Besides the ’90s theme, I’ve seen other influences mixed in, such as nautical elements and dorky, very laboratory looking glasses. The result of all these elements is a”bad boy and “bad” girl look, quite formidable, wearable and looking warm.
Lots of stripes, cool blazers, baggy leather looking pants worn with white sneakers or black shoes. Flat and newsboy caps are added to the majority of the look, worn on the side. It looks playful and almost naive. Carefree even. The jackets and blazers are quite experimental, some with uneven patterns or just plain casual. The “man in black” and the “Matrix” look is there, in the collection, tailored by Olivier Rousteing to be a great representation of the Balmain man and woman.
Front row: the one and only J. Balvin, Caro Daur, Ming Hao, Jin Han, Regina Anikiy, Luca Fersko, Mariano Di Vaoi, Miles Richie. Love all the names on this list.
Into a cozy arrangement with a library feel, Fendi show took its Mens collection down the runway, up close to the audience. One after another, male models showcased gorgeous looks of gentle beauty. Colors are soft with lots of brown and beige, black and grey. Pretty simple, yet every look is a unique space of perfectly mixed details, again, very gentle, but so well arranged. This gentleness in details and cuts reminds of a subtle feminity, but it’s not destroying the “masculine” look, instead, it only adds an extra touch of pleasantness. Suits are accompanied by long cardigans and long jackets with matching design, puffer greyish jackets, and tucked-in sweaters. The dominant fabric has a metallic look, again, gentle to the eye. My favorite look from the show: see-through combo, with metallic effect. Pants match the shirt. Don’t worry. There’s shorts involved.

76th Annual Golden Globe Awards took place in Beverly Hills, California, just as I was wondering where are the celebrities. Seeing all this glammed up faces now I have my answer: in the hands of their very talented stylists and hairdressers. Putting beauty things aside, for now, I’ve seen on the red carpet couples which I’m very fond of. Heidi Klum and Tom Kaulitz is one very good looking pair I personally adore seeing out in the open. They like attending events, which is a plus since Tom has never been that outgoing in the past and the rumor has been that he’s, in fact, quite the private person.
A second couple I’ve enjoyed seeing is Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk. The model looked extra fine in her beaded gilded gown. A chic bob completed the look. Bradley went for the white, and of course, he looked dashing.
And since we are back to fashion talk, I have to label Anne Hathway’s Golden Globe’s look as being by far my favorite look. She is a gorgeous woman with a face and body that can rock just any outfit. On the red carpet, she wore a leopard print gown with sequin embroidery top. She looks amazing!
Other favorites: Rosamund Pike in Haute Couture combo – bolero and bodysuit with a skirt.Embed from Getty Images Embed from Getty Images
Men’s Fashion Week is on the go, London being the first stop. Already at its second day of shows, and so much has happened. By looking at a couple of collections, I can see how things have calmed down, sort of, after a very experimental period. At least that’s how I felt about what happened in the past two to three years, strictly men’s fashion speaking. My favorite so far from LVWM Autumn/Winter 19-20 is Private Policy Presented by GQ China’s collection. I vibed with it. There’s a sort of freshness to it, like a forever young spirit. I have seen clothes that could satisfy various needs, ages (if you care) and styles. All of this under the same brand. And on top of that, there’s like a brotherhood transition from a fancy suit to an edgy-looking situation. It’s all connected, even though it may, in theory, look apart. One of my favorite looks is down below.Embed from Getty Images
Front row: AJ Pritchard, Addis Miller, Eyal Booker.
The beginning of 2019 has a humble show off of glamorous events, I guess everyone is still on holidays. However, on January 4th, W Magazine Celebrated Its ‘Best Performances’ Portfolio And The Golden Globes With Audi And Giorgio Armani Beauty. I know. It’s a long name. The list of celebrities seen at the location is pretty substantial and I thought why not talk about what I love best, which is fashion. By far I am inclined to say the best appearance comes from actress Kathryn Newton, who, if you don’t know yet, plays alongside Julia Roberts in drama movie “Ben is Back”. The actress dared for more and sported a 60’s inspired hairdo, just right for the feathery dress she wore.
A second winner is Dree Hemingway. I had no idea she looks like this now. And yet this is what she’s been showing since July. I love how it looks on her and I love her outfit for the night. Kind of edgy but very minimalistic. You go, girl!
Other great looks: Lili Reinhart, Jaime King, Melissa Roxburgh.
Chanel fashion shows always are this great opportunity to take a moment for yourself and enjoy the finer things in life. This time around, the Paris New-York 2018/19 Métiers d’art show, presented at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York on 4th December, took on a mission to explore the old days of Egypt. Hierglophyps, lots of gold accents, representative cuts and shapes (clothes-wise), makeup and hair, and the setup, all created a passage to going back in time.
Back to the clothes, I haven’t seen that much bright gold in a Chanel show ever! Collars, wristbands, hems, high knee boots and stylish shoes, trousers, tights, and jewelry. These are all pieces in this collection, that may come sometimes in other colors, but more than often, gold was the approach. The tweed costume might seem at first looking out of place next to the brightness of the gold, but the more you look, the better it stands. By the way, the costumes and singular pieces LOOK amazing! There’s also more color than usual, which is always a pleasent sight in a Chanel show.Embed from Getty Images Embed from Getty Images
Front row faces: Irene Kim, Mackenzie Foy, Diane Kruger, Margot Robbie, Gwei Lun-mei, Penelope Cruz and more.
The 21st British Independent Film Awards happened December 2nd, in London, and while I had to stop and admire all these actors and actresses which I mostly know from one or two or more of the many movies I used to watch back in days when the time was plenty, my sight got caught by the gorgeous Gemma Arterton. She’s truly a beauty, but at the same time, the woman knows what fits her. I don’t ever remember seeing her not having the right hairstyle or the right clothes. For this occasion, she wore a sort of backless dress in the most adorable baby pink color. The dress has no sleeves and has a teasing touch, thanks to a generous cut on the sides, below the armpit. It then falls into a perfect pleated long skirt. The stiffness of the material creates the proper vibe, mixing the pink and cutouts into a perfect choice, red carpet worthy and Gemma Arterton perfect look. Hair is natural, feminine and seductive. Love, love.Embed from Getty Images
