South Korean boy band BTS for the second time on the red carpet at Billboard Awards seems to me like an ethereal experience. The group released just in time for the awards their Fake Love track from Love Yourself album, released May the 18th. I have already pressed the replay button countless times on their music video, but let’s talk more about what happened at the Billboards. The boys took home the award for Top Social Artist for the second year in the row and even performed on stage (wow-yes!; and yeah, I’ve watched that too), achieving a well-deserving first K-pop act to ever perform at the BBMAs. That’s an awesome way to spend your time at such an event as Billboard Awards; the boys can only be proud of such success, which now they can share with the supportive fan base, aka Army.

Fashion-wise, I have to start with Jin. He looked impeccable on the red carpet, wearing a shirt, tie, vest and matching pants next to white sneakers. Very cool, effortless yet fashionable. This look suits him like a glove. As a group, the band gave out a chill vibe, with casual shirts, jeans, white sneakers, belts, and scarfs. Jimin, RM and J-hope changed the sneakers for loafers, adding diversity to the general look. Love them!

 

In-Short New Year’s Eve 2018 Around the Globe

Ready or not, a brand new year took the official control of our magic reality, giving us new hopes for new beginnings, second chances, true love, wealth, better health and so on. Where were you when the midnight rang? If you care, I was facing the most incredible fireworks show from the coolest view. And that’s that.

Worldwide, artists had it like artists, meaning traveling and entertaining. Hopefully, there was enjoyment involved as well. Speaking of which, on-air correspondent Maria Menounos got married to her longtime partner, Keven Undergaro, the couple making it official in Times Square during the live broadcast of Fox’s New Year Eve live broadcast. Despite the cold, Menounos kept the traditional attire, looking gorgeous in her embroidered bridal dress. Congratulations to the newlyweds!

Times Square was the place to be on 31 December, as South Korean boy band BTS performed at Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest, next to a pretty fancy list: rapper and boyfriend of singer Halsey, G-Eazy (I love them together), gorgeous Hailee Steinfeld, a very casual looking Charlie Puth, Bebe Rexha, Mariah Carey, and so many more.

Paris was another great location to be, as the Arc de Triomphe took on the task of being a perfect animated canvas, changing its appearance in colorful drawings during the New Year’s Celebration on the Champs-Elysees.

Passing tradition through the door between the old and new year was preferred in many parts of the world. In Germany, winter swimmers had no ice to fight for their New Year’s Day tradition, but that did not put an end to the task. I wouldn’t go as far, but I can say Happy New Year to you, beloved citizen of Earth, wherever you are, and whatever you are doing.

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

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.

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.
