MTV VMAs: My Best Dressed Goes To Selena Gomez

Versace-selena-gomez

The MTV VMAs always produces a hit and miss red carpet – I either love looks or I hate them – but that’s what makes this one of the most fun music awards shows to watch. Everyone from Miley Cyrus to Lady Gaga turned out – there were feathers, leopard print, lots of flesh on show, one enormous feather train, some seriously sexy looks and looks that should never have been seen.

For me the best dressed of the night was easily the gorgeous Selena Gomez wearing Atelier Versace. I reckon this look might split opinion, but I love the exposed bustier, the studded detailing, and that hip-high split is the perfect finish for such a breathtaking look. Selena looks hot and I think it was a perfect look for the occasion.

MTV-vmas-Holland-roden-One look that nearly took top spot was Teen Wolf’s Holland Roden who really took me by surprise in this stunning couture-esq look by designer Naeem Khan.

From the New York-based designer’s Resort 2014 collection, this look really stood out on the red carpet because of its incredible craftsmanship of the silver mirror beaded bateau-neck t-shirt teamed with a champagne silk faille open ballskirt over cigarette pants.

I really wasn’t expecting such a beautiful look at the VMAs, and some might say it was a little too much for an award show, but as an actress not a singer I think she totally gets away with it. For me Holland looks absolutely gorgeous and I love that she went for a bold red lip and a chic chignon – it really finishes off the look.

Miley is getting a lot of attention after her raunchy performance, I didn’t think it was any different to say Rihanna or Lady Gaga, but before she hit the stage the singer walked the red carpet in a vintage Dolce & Gabbana look. I saw a few people on twitter hating on this for looking like a scene out of the game Bejewelled – but I like how garish it is.

rita-ora-alexandre-vauthierAnother look that I loved had to be Rita Ora’s totally OTT Alexandre Vauthier feather baby-blue couture gown from the autumn/winter 2013 collection. This look was so over-the-top that it is best viewed in motion – check out MTV’s Instavid of the dress being repositioned for photographers – it literally takes three people to move it.

The last look I loved had to be singer Ciara who rocked a Givenchy Couture gown from the autumn/winter 2010 collection. This dress, which fitted her perfectly, was super sexy with its strategically placed beaded embroidery and glamorous with its feathered hemline. Not everyone could pull this revealing gown off – but Ciara’s body is incredible and I think she looks fabulous.

Who was your best dressed at last night’s MTV VMAs? Leave me a comment below to let me know who was your favourite – and your thoughts on Selena, Holland, Miley, Rita and Ciara’s looks.

Editorial Loving: Miley Cryus In Couture For Harper’s Bazaar

Harpers-bazaar-sept-miley-1

Singer Miley Cyrus has taken out her grill and put her twerking on hold to look all glamorous in the September issue of Harper's Bazaar US wearing the most gorgeous haute couture looks from the autumn/winter collections.

Styled by Lessie Lessin and shot by Terry Richardson, the Can't Stop singer looks elegant wearing looks by Armani Prive, Chanel, Dior, Valentino, Giambattista Valli, and Atelier Versace.

I love all the pieces, the styling is amazing, but my favourites has to be that exquisite ruffled Armani Prive gown draped out in front of the car, it is a gown waiting for a glitzy award show red carpet, and the gorgeous red Giambattista Valli gown captured in front of the sunset.

Every since she cut her hair she has been on a fashion transformation and this editorial shows that she is all grown up and it suits her. It is a shame really that they didn't give her the cover.

Do you like Miley's couture editorial in Harper's Bazaar?

Twitter Love: Miley Cyrus In London

Miley-cryus-london-chanelMiley Cyrus is fast becoming one of my favourite celebrities on Twitter and Instagram, this is a girl that really knows how to have fun, and I have been loving her piccies from London – from her Chanel haul to grabbing her crotch and even hanging off railings with her UK fans.

The ‘We Can’t Stop’ singer sported an all-black mini dress as she posed on Chanel’s floor surrounded by the brand’s black and white bags and tweeted the piccie with the caption: ‘’The damage is done ❤ @CHANEL.’’

What’s in the bags she doesn’t share, but I am sure we will be seeing lots of Chanel in her up-coming press tour around Europe. Seriously only Miley would pose lying on the floor of the luxury French boutique!

As well as trips to Chanel, the former Disney starlet has also been showing off her unique style, from a hilarious pose with fans clinging onto railings in a black crop top and pencil skirt and that gorgeous metallic-gold Celine shoulder bag to a monochrome McQueen look along a very packed suitcase in her hotel, and my favourite outfit pic has to be ‘Business’ look with Miley grabbing her crotch, flashing her abs, as well as bit of under boob with the tweet: “Ain’t worrrrrriieddd bout nothin but my my #bizzzznassss”.

Miley certainly has had fun with her fashion in London.

I really just love her fun attitude, some have been a little hard on Miley lately – but come on this girl is only 20-years-old why can’t she have fun, and come on if you could wouldn’t you buy enough Chanel that you needed two assistants to load up the car???!!!???

The Art Of A Great Selfie: Celebs Show You How It’s Done!!!

Perfecting the art of a great selfie is something that I find a challenge, I either come out looking like I have an alien sized head, my glasses look 10 inches thick, or I get the shakes trying to reach out far enough to get myself all in the shot, and don’t even get me going on the popular #FromWhereIStand selfie, I can never seem to be able to do it without making myself look short and chubby.

OK, I am not saying I want to do a selfie every day, I wouldn’t put you guys through that, but it would be nice from time-to-time to show off my glasses, or my outfit without getting my boyfriend involved, and I am totally blaming all the celebrities in my Instagram feed for making it look so easy for my desire to perfect it.

Granted they generally are already flawless to start with, Rosie Huntingdon Whiteley I am talking about you, they have make-up artist and hair stylists on call, and have their pick of the most amazing clothes but I was thinking that maybe I could learn a thing or two from their shots.

My favourite celebrity for selfies has to be Rosie, she always looks incredible, just check out the great angle she is working to show off her perfect pout and those amazing sunglasses, seriously love everything about her. Another celeb to steal selfie tips from has to be Khloe Kardashian, I love her in the car shots, she always captures the light perfectly.

Then there are the celebs who are all about eye contact, check out Victoria Beckham, such a great shot of her, to the girls that just want to have fun, I am looking at you Miley and Lauren Conrad with a bow in your hair, and they are joined by a horde of models and actresses like Miranda Kerr and Jaime King all showing how it is done.

So here is what I came up with on how to master the selfie:

  • Find your angles, very America’s Top Model but come on if Tara was doing a selfie master class she would have so said it. I find the best shots are captured when your phone is slightly above eye level and away from you at a 45-degree angle, and I always tilt my face slightly away so no shine off my glasses.
  • Great posture really does make you look slimmer, especially in pictures, so stand tall and keep your chin down so we don’t all see up your nose.
  • Natural light is your friend, so head outside, if you are indoors head towards the windows and get the sun to illuminate your face, trust me it will look better than artificial lighting.
  • Get to know your filters, whether that’s in Instagram or another photo editing app, filters can really help make you look better. I find if I am tired or my skin isn’t looking too good then the black and white filters such as Willow can make all the difference, I also love the effect of X-Pro II.
  • But most of all I have realised to smile and have fun – it is only a selfie!!!

So a tough crowd to follow – but here goes – a #Selfie I prepared earlier in my office. This took 10 attempts, I have found not too close, natural light but not too much with my glasses, a great background – I couldn’t leave Barbie out, and smile!!!

Have you perfected the selfie? Leave me any tips you have below in the comments – as I kind of feel that I should have hashtag this pic #SelfieInTraining.
