2017 Oscars BEST of the Red Carpet

The grand finale to the 2017 award season has come to a close. The Oscars celebrated another year of big hitters in the film industry. From the very popular and highly nominated ‘La La Land’ to impactful stories like ‘Lion’, ‘Moonlight’ and ‘Hidden Figures’, there were several stories that captivated and inspired us. It was quite an award show with upsets like Best Actor win by Casey Affleck and an emotional win by Mahershala Ali who won for best actor in a supporting role in the movie, ‘Moonlight’. The end of the award show and final nomination for Best Picture came with the biggest confusing moment. First, the announcement came that ‘La La Land’ had won and just minutes later the win went to ‘Moonlight’. Quite a confusing and shocking end to over four hours of the show. Moving on to some favorite moments on the red carpet. The ladies went with gold tones, whites and flowing, elegant gowns. There wasn’t too much color, so we have to thank Oscar nominee and Best Supporting Actress winner, Viola Davis for leading the way with her incredible red Armani dress. She’s been wearing so many stunning strapless dresses but this time it was the shoulders that were exposed and what a great fit! Emma stone’s flapper fringed, flapperesque golden dress was perfection. Here are the rest of our choices for BEST DRESSED as we wrap yet another year of award season.

Runway to Oscars: 2017 Oscars Fashion Gown Predictions

With only days away from the Academy Awards we just can’t help but wonder what gowns will hit the red carpet on Sunday. The runways have been filled with so many exquisite choices. Surely designers and celebrity stylists must be in the midst of the behind – the – scenes fashion frenzy for their A-list clients. Let’s be honest, everyone’s goal is to hit that carpet and be on the ‘best dressed’ list the next day so every inch of detail has to be mindfully decided. The complete look has to tell a story, from hair, makeup, jewelry and accessories. So, who will have a fashion forward, elegant Chanel moment? Will it be Dior, Armani Prive for the win? We always love an Elie Saab moment at the Oscars and who will amp up the sex appeal? Based on the past award shows it’s very likely we will see some plunging  necklines, plenty of sheer panels, feathers and metallics. Today we have chosen a few options that we would pull off the runway and onto the racks  if we had to choose.  Which gown has your vote for the Oscars? Which designers would you work with if you were styling Meryl, Viola, Emma or any other Hollywood actress for this event?

Top 5 Best Dressed at the 2017 Grammys

Awards season is in full swing and last night the music industry celebrated some of music’s top talent. Adele was the big winner of the night as she swept the Grammys with five wins for her five nominations. Beyonce was nominated for nine awards and took home only two. It seems the Grammys continue to receive backlash and can’t shake the controversy of not awarding Beyonce for best album again and again. Her fans were less than pleased. One of her biggest fans last night spoke up and that was the very winner of the award for best album, Adele. She was gracious and really gushed about how incredible Beyonce’s ‘Lemonade’ album was. It seems award shows are never going to live up to everyone’s expectations because someone in the end, is always going to lose. I think the biggest award for any artist is one, the gift that they have to share with the world and two, the love of their fans. As long as the fans continue to show up to their concerts and love their music, that in itself makes you a winner. Now, with that said.. on to the fashion of the night!

Let me preface by saying that it’s time stylists remember the type of award shows their clients are attending. Why are celebrities showing up in evening gowns and dresses that are fit for more elegant occasions. The Grammys is the time to bring edgy rock and roll and creative expression. With that said there were a few looks that were deserving of the best-dressed award.

2017 Golden Globes Fashion Winners of the Night

Awards season has officially commenced. This weekend the Golden Globes opened up their red carpet and the A-listers came marching down in their Sunday best. It was a night to celebrate and honor some of Hollywood’s best work in television, film and music. With so many great shows on television, Amazon and Netflix the competition was fierce to say the least. For a few years now, the big screen is not the only option for great entertainment. Of course, there were some films that stood out for their numerous nominations like ‘La La Land’ and ‘Moonlight’. It will be an interesting race to the Oscars which will be held this year on Sunday, February 26th (Oscar nominations are announced on January 24th). The full list of awards season schedule can be found here.

Now on to why we are here, the red carpet fashion! It was a night of glitz and glamour as only Hollywood’s elite knows how to present. There were some very obvious trends like the always classic black, plunging and daring necklines, black and white but yellow was the winning bold color of the night. Metallics and silver were once again making waves among many actresses who wanted to bring their full on sparkle. The makeup was vampy and darker. There was definitely variety on Sunday night as some went lighter and natural with the makeup and others went with a bolder lip. It seemed like every shade of pink was also a fashion trend but our favorite of the night was Lily Collins (see below). We can’t wait to see what the rest of the award season red carpet will be like for 2017. Congratulations to all the winners. Fashionistas, what a way to start the new year. We want to hear from you and what were some of your favorite looks of the nights. Yes, there were also some bad ones (Nicole Kidman, Sophie Turner, Felicity Jones). Here are our fashion winners!

Best in Yellow: Viola Davis in Michael Kors Natalie Portman in Prada Reese Witherspoon in Custom Atelier Versace

WHO DOMINATED THE RED CARPET AT THE EMMYS

The much anticipated 68th annual Emmy Awards arrived Sunday night. It’s one of the biggest nights for shows and their top stars but of course, what kicks off the night is all the red carpet action. Who is wearing what and what are the trends of the night is the topic on everyone’s mind. We are looking to see who made the best-dressed list on the carpet and dazzled from head to toe. However, for the most part it was a very ‘safe’ type of night for Hollywood fashion. Nothing that stood out as a fashion look that will stand the test of time. Several of the men were quite dapper and although yes it comes down to basically a tuxedo, it is worth noting the effort. If you missed any of the action before or during the show,  One Style at a Time is always ready to bring you up to speed. One trend seen on the Emmys red carpet and that resonated from last week’s NYFW was the light cream and whites. Of course, we always love it when a celebrity brings a splash of bright bold color. So here we go fashion darlings! Our list of favorite looks from the 2016 Emmy awards. Who made the cut in your top list of best-dressed? Do you prefer color or a muted tone? Share below, we always enjoy your opinion and fashion comments.
