Asian Film Awards had its 13th edition today in Hong Kong, with nominees from all over Asia and winners alike. Obviously, what everyone wants to know is what movie from all five nominated for the best film won the award. Movie director Hirokazu Koreeda described Shoplifters ( Manbiki kazoku) as his “socially conscious” film, and a project he was thinking about for a couple of years. In the movie, a family of five is making it day by day with the help of shoplifting, when everything changes with the arrival of a stranger into the household. Shoplifters already brought director Hirokazu Koreeda the Palme d’Or award in May, during the 71st annual Cannes Film Festival. At the 13th Edition of Asian Film Awards, the movie received Best Film and Best Original Music award.

Best Director went to Lee Chang-dong for the South Korean psychological drama Burning, where he also produced and co-wrote. The film premiered on May 16, 2018, at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival. Early in 2019, although it had not received an actual nomination, Burning made it into 91st Academy Awards’ Best Foreign Language Film final of nine-film shortlist, on February 24 and with this becoming the first Korean film to make it to the final if this category. Director Lee Chang-dong also won the Lifetime Achievement Award.

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.

Grammy Awards: Winners, Best of Fashion and More

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.

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.

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”.

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!

Other wins:
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“.

Gemma Arterton Wears the Perfect Pink at The 21st British Independent Film Awards

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.

Best Dressed and Styled at Golden Globes – Jessica Biel, Dakota Johnson and More

Black was the theme of the Golden Globes for this year’s edition, and even the story behind it is not one related to fashion, the black itself made everyone look really well, individually and as a whole. With this being said, this edition brought me a lot of enjoyment in choosing my favorite looks, which I’m about to unravel now. Read on and see if you agree with Glaibera’s choices!

BEST HAIR & MAKEUP

There is no doubt that best hair and makeup from the Golden Globes goes to Jessica Biel. The actress not only had one of the best dresses of the night but won my heart completely in the hairstyle department (yes, I do have in my heart such a department). Styled on one side lightly waved, away from the ears, it then goes at the back styled into a perfect half circle, falling like a nice curtain on the neck. Earrings are long but do not cross hair length, this emphasizing, even more, the perfection of this highly sophisticated hairstyle. Makeup is gentle, with extra long eyelashes and subtle rosy lips.

BEST DRESS

Dakota Johnson is my next most favorite, the actress looking delightful in the best dress of the night. The front looks neat, almost too neat until your eyes fall on her perfectly thought belt. Even with such a simplistic view, the dress is still a winner. Then the actress turned, revealing a crystal-embellished bow design, stunning and opposite looking to what was happening at the front. The bow slowly dies into a long, almost dark grayish train. For hair, we have a wavy, in line with ears ponytail paired with fine bangs, styled to look natural and fresh.

Just as nice:

Jessica Pare – The actress had one perfect look per whole. Hair is sleek, styled on one side and into an updo. The dress is a real piece of art, gorgeous, with flowers and well-thought straps.

Essence Atkins – See-through tulle long skirt and heavily embroidered top with feathered short sleeves.

Diane Kruger – As usual, a one of a kind fashionista that never disappoints. The actress wore a beaded gown with matching long cape. A sleek updo revealed the perfect bone structure of the actress.

Brittany Lopez – Hair down on one side, very organic looking. She was wearing simplistic strappy high heels and hearts and starts A-line embroidered tulle dress.

Sally Hawkins – Assimetrical mixed gown with velvety blouse top revealing one shoulder and ball skirt.

And then there were the hotties: Halle Berry and Kendall Jenner.

 

These Iconic Faces Were seen on the Red Carpet at the Golden Globes

This year’s edition of Golden Globes succeeded in tailoring the most sophisticated atmosphere, mostly due to the black theme, but also thanks to the presence of beloved actors and actresses we haven’t seen in a very long time in the limelight, and even so, on the red carpet. Actress Michelle Pfeiffer was one precious face to be seen all dressed up at the Golden Globes, alongside few other big names. Read on to find who else was there.

Angelina Jolie made a reservation for two, so to speak when she brought her dashing son Pax for the ride, both of them looking dang cute but sophisticated too. The actress has a gift of surprising us once in a while with looks we wouldn’t normally expect from her. This time around it was the sheer sleeves with feathered cuffs that got us mesmerized. The dress is stunning, flowy, easy, very ladylike but with an old Hollywood flavor to it. I love how she accentuated her eyes, not to mention that ‘to die for’ updo.

And then, out of the blue, was Sharon Stone! Sharon Stone at the Golden Globes. Am I dreaming? No, she was there. Shock aside, the woman looks phenomenal, such a great actress and entity coming from such an important era of the cinema, one we no longer get to touch, and yet Sharon Stone was at the Golden Globes. It is ethereal to see this iconic actress making an appearance, and just like that, the event took on a whole new level of spirituality. And I will leave it to that.

Catherine Zeta-Jones made a fearless appearance, proving that age and sex appeal don’t go hand in hand, and in fact, one does not depend on the other. From what I’ve seen, the actress is slowly but surely working her way up to making a comeback, that might have to do with perhaps being an influencer or having to do with her acting. Whatever it is, I’m glad she too was at the Golden Globes. It makes things all so very exciting.

And back to the one and only Michelle Pfeiffer, for whom time seems to have stopped. The actress decided to wear her hair down, styled on one side and accentuated in layers. A short blazer with a belt and long tulle skirt with dots followed.

Other faces to stir up old memories in you: Alexis Bledel, Laurence Fishburne, Carmen Electra, Halle Berry, Oprah Winfrey.

AMAs 2017 Red Carpet – Diana Ross, BTS, Pink and More

Embed from Getty Images

BTS’s Army’s wishes had been granted yesterday, when the 7 members – Jin, Rap Monster, Jungkook, J-Hope, Jimin, V and Suga arrived on the red carpet, ahead of their performance for AMAs 2017. Perfectly styled for their appearance and posing together, I think this event, highly public, was way easier for them to handle than their Billboard Awards show-up. This time around, all the 7 members looked more relaxed and a tiny bit more at ease with their exciting task.

Embed from Getty Images

More than one person appearance seemed to be the norm on the red carpet, Diana Ross’s supporting large family being the best example to mention. The artist rocked an outfit larger than life and an even bigger hat, metaphorically speaking, really in tune with the award she was there to receive – A lifetime achievement award and a tribute video doesn’t sound bad at all. She rocked the stage as well, with the help of her nephews, and by now nobody truly knows which side was the real star – the singer or her dapper grandkids.

Fashion wise I have to say I loved Pink’s grapefruit pink tulle gown, playfully touched by a few floral appliqués on the corset of the dress. A second favorite is a piece worn by Issues singer, beautiful Julia Michaels. Similar to Pink’s dress, but oh, so very different in the vibe it gives. I love the creative approach the designer took in filling the space inside the cut-out portion of the dress, which happens to be right in the middle of the chest. EDM duo group, Chainsmokers, took their red carpet looks to another level, both of them sporting well-fitted suits, with Alex rocking the tartan and Andrew the black.

Last but not least, my heart skipped a beat, or more, at the sight of Jessie James pregnant silhouette. Body goals, that’s what she inspires, among other good things, such as good hair nice makeup, great pose.

Screen Shot 2017-11-21 at 13.23.23

Switzerland’s biggest indoor music event, Energy Star Night, opened its gate once again, at Hallenstadion, in Zurich, on Friday, November 17 to party it up, entertaining a good number of about 13.000 music lovers with international artists and country’s most beloved music groups and singers.

The night did not miss out on emotional moments, especially when the organizers brought from the street on stage to perform a talented street musician, named Jakula Ondra, from Poland. Newcomer of the year moment is also an emotional one, in particular for the winner, Swiss artist Nemo.

Good music made it from the stage to the crowd, coming from American singer artist Anastacia, UK artist Anne-Marrie who performed the well-known track Rockabye and the very talented Mark Forster, who’s come all the way from Germany to perform his energizing track ‘Chöre’. Switzerland’s darling Luca Hänni performed ‘Purple Rain’ in a duet with Jontsch. Swiss group Baba Shrimps, Finnish band Sunrise Avenue, French Dj duo Ofenbach, Alex Aiomo, Berlin-based Dj Alle Farben and Swiss duo Remedy & Manu-L performed as well.

The crowd received the very best ending, in a Swiss kind of way, with none other than Swiss rap duo Lo & Leduc performing on stage.

I’m not always into Jessica Biel‘s fashion choices, but for this edition of Emmy Awards I have to admit, she made my heart flutter in approval. The hairstyle for the night sets her apart from the rest and with the help of the wrap gown she’s transformed herself into a real goddess.

Amal Clooney’s lilac dress talked about romance, excellent craftsmanship, and high class. On top of that, the color and silhouette help to soften up some of the harshness dark hair usually has.

Avant-garde artist Laurie Anderson was amongst the many who showed up on the red carpet ahead of “Suburbicon” screening. Her positive attitude, together with her creative sense of dressing up went very well hand in hand. And literally, the highlight of her look is every single piece that she is wearing.

There’s somebody I do not know, who showed up wearing a fancy robe on top of his suit. The bow tie is a perfect touch to the whole affair.

Actress Isabella Ferrari joined Bobulova in the pursuit of looking gentle and feminine, choosing a just as much loved color, which is a lovely pink of a long dress with shirt collar.

Jane Fonda looked sublime on the red carpet in her embroidered gown, for the screening of her latest movie ‘Our Souls at Night’.

Milena Mancini’s super relaxed but fashionable look that she wore for the ‘Il Contagio’ photocall has given me some inspiration for my own looks. Love her hair, the posture and all that she’s wearing.

Best Celebrity Looks from 2017’s Video Music Awards

This past Sunday, August 27, it was that time of the year, when celebrities gather in style and good spirits to participate at the Music Video Awards. Held in Inglewood, California, at The Forum, the event had something for everyone. Awkwardness, check. Bling, shine and glam, check. Cutie couples on the red carpet, check. Hot celebrities, check. I am going to stop at fashion, and give you Glaibera’s best looks from VMA 2017.

It was a matchy-matchy minus one family display for Hart’s members, with Pink looking overjoyed next to her handsome loved ones.

I love Paris Jackson for not skipping on adding a bit of her own style to whatever high-end glam she’s wearing. This time around her very smokey colorful makeup gave out more than any spoken language.

OMG! OMG! I had to skip on Gigi Gorgeous for darling Bretman Rock, and not because I’ve stopped on loving Gigi, but because Bretman looked stunning. Thumbs up for baring his torso in his over the top glam jacket.

I had to add Lorde for her beautiful dress and the color she’s wearing. Looking good, girl!

Nobody dresses as good as Taboo of the Black Eyed Peas.

American rapper Colson Baker, aka Machine Gun Kelly is by far the owner of one of the best looks that walked the red carpet at the VMA 2017. His Thom Browne suit is a delightful game between white, black, red and stripes.

Fashion: Best of Red Carpet from Annual Teen Choice Awards 2017

Besides tons of awards and loved winners, there was also fashion happening at Annual Teen Choice Awards 2017 on August 13. It is true that it’s not the event to show up dressed as you would for the Oscars, but celebrities did the best they could at looking appropriately dressed and styled. I’ve picked four best looks, so here is my fifty cent on every one of them.

Embed from Getty Images

Actress Ariela Barer went for the romantic black of Helo Rocha Spring 2017, but she changed the vibe of her dress by wearing it with a mesh top and black pumps. She then accentuated her good-girl look with soft smokey eyes and an unpretentious natural updo.

Embed from Getty Images

Madelaine Petsch and Riverdale’s cast won seven awards at the Teen Choice Awards and Petsch herself won the Choice Hissy Fit. As for her wardrobe, she’s chosen just the right outfit and colors to highlight her red hair and skin color. I love her Genny Spring 2017 white embroidered ensemble, with shorts and long puffy sleeves blouse.

Embed from Getty Images

Maddie Zeigler grows up in front of our eyes, and every time I’m seeing pictures with her, she looks much taller than before. For this year’s Annual Teen Choice Awards she dressed up in Zac Posen Resort 2018, with printed jacket and trousers, and she looked mighty stylish.

Emeraude Toubia’s lavender embroidered wrap dress is a magical vision, reminding of romance and sensuality. It makes me wanna have it and wear it all day, every day.
