Disastrous Oscars


Oscars!!!! YES!!! After a not so thrilling awards season (fashionally speaking ahah), I couldn't wait for the Oscars! Usually movie stars and candidates show off the best outfit of the year.. however, it wasn't like that.
Nothing exciting, but pretty monotonous. Yes, of course, there were some good outfits, but nothing breath-taking as it should be!
The night had a unexpected turn out with the big mistake in the declaration of the best picture. It was called La La Land on the stage when the real winner was Moonlight! Ops!!!


Ruth Negga, who was candidates as best leading actress for the role in Loving, wore a red lace number by Valentino, with Bally shoes and Irene Neuwirth and Gemfields jewelry.




Viola Davis, who won the best supporting actress, (I must add, she definitely deserved it, because she's amazing!) wore a red number custom made Armani Privè dress with Stuart Weitzman shoes, Bally bag and Niwaka jewelry.






Felicity Jones channeled her inner ballerina with an adorable pearl white dress by Dior Haute Couture with Christian Louboutin shoes and Niwaka jewelry.




Chrissy Teigen wore a Zuhair Murad dress with Stuart Weitzman shoes, Judith Leiber clutch and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry.





Karlie Kloss wore an elegant white dress with semi-cape by Stella McCartney, with Stuart Weitzman heels, Roger Vivier clutch and Nivar Modi jewelry.  



Emma Roberts wore a vintage Armani Privè dress with Armani shoes and and bag.



Michelle Williams, who was candidate as best  supporting actress wore a black and white dress by Louis Vuitton.



Kirsten Dunst was very classy in a black custom made Christian Dior Haute Couture dress with Roger Vivier clutch, Christian Lacriox shoes and Niwaka diamond necklace and earrings.





 Last year best leading actress winner, Alicia Vikander wore a black lace dress by Louis Vuitton with Bulgari jewelry.



Salma Hayek wore a sexy lace dress by Alexander McQueen with Fred Leighton jewelry, Alexander McQueen bag and Sophia Webster shoes.



Nicole Kidman was strongly criticized for her dress because too boring, but I liked it! She wore a beige Armani Privè gown and bag with Stuart Weitzamn shoes, Harry Winston jewelry and Omega watch.






Emma Stone, who won the best leading actress, wore a gold custom made Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci with Tiffany & Co jewellery.





Hailee Steinfeld, to me, was the best dressed of the night. Her make up, hair and outfit were amazing! Her style was simple but very elegant and not presumptuous. She wore a floral dress by Ralph & Russo, with Neil Lane jewelry, Charlotte Olympia shoes and Judith Lieber clutch.
For the afterparty, she opted for another Ralph & Russo dress with Neil Lane jewelry and Stuart Weitzaman shoes.







Taraji P. Henson was my second favourite outfit. She opted for a navy blue velvet off-the-shoulders dress by Alberta Ferretti with Jimmy Choo shoes and bag and Nirav Modi jewels.



Brie Larson wore my third favourite outfit: a black velvet custom Oscar de la Renta with Neil Lane jewelry and Aquazzura heels.




Now let's talk about the big NO NO of the night. For me, Jessica Biel and her gold Kaufmanfranco dress was a no! She completed her outfit with Tiffany & Co. jewels and Stuart Weitzman shoes. I don't know whar's wrong with this outfit, maybe the make up and hair or the cut of the dress that didn't enhance her figure, but I didn't like it.





Dakota Johnson, the Fifty shades Darker's actress, was another big no no. She wore a Gucci Fall-Winter 2017-2018 champagne satin long sleeve high neck gown with front plisse detail, dramatic cascading bow at the waist and tulip slit worn with metallic gold high heel shoes and metallic gold clutch with feline head closure.Usually I love Gucci so much! But this dress was not adequately accessorized and her make up was too much light, maybe to compensate her dress but it needed to be more marked.



Just a little note.. Why call Justin Timberlake to sing the opening song for the Oscars?? He wasn't even nominated for something! I, personally, would prefer a performance of John Legend since La La Land was nominated as best original score!

I have to admit that I was a little bit disappointed by the outfits and also by the winners.. except Viola Davis of course!


What do you think about last night??



That's all for now



Talk to you soon!

From BAFTAs to Grammys

Last night was full of events: the Grammys at Los Angeles and the Baftas in London.
The Oscars of the music and the British Oscars all in one night but on the opposite side of the world!
From Royal Hall in London to Staples Center in Los Angeles, the celebrities were a lot with a lot of looks, but unfortunately I have to admit that last night was a bit undertone. There weren't outstanding outfits or looks, nothing breath-taking. Maybe because they're holding back for the upcoming Oscars? I really hope so! Because I need to be surprised!!



Let's see the outfits of Baftas!
Viola Davis opted for a custom strapless colourful dress in blue shades by Jenny Packham with a Tyler Ellis clutch and Bulgari jewelry to complete the look.



Naomie Harris wore a delicate baby pink Gucci dress with orange flowers on the waist as detail, Aquazzura shoes,earrings and coordinate clutch by Swarovski. Her dress is made of silk and crème tulle gown with ruffle shoulder detail, plissé skirt and orange silk flowers.





Michelle Williams chose a silver sequin Louis Vuitton mini dress with long sleeves and black sandals.





Nicole Kidman wore a long black velvet dress by Armani Privè with a embroidered top and Harry Winston jewelry.
Her co-star in her latest movie Lion, Dev Patel wore a black tuxedo by Burberry.




At the event, there were also the duchess Kate Middleton who wa wearing a very elegant black Alexander McQueen gown. Her dress was a flowery black off-the-shoulders gown in silk with flounces through the long skirt.





Star Wars protagonist Daisy Ridley opted for a Roland Mouret dress with Cartier jewelry, shoes and clutch by Jimmy Choo. Her dress was a one shoulder black gown witn inserts in red and embroidered panels.



The Game of Thrones' star Sophie Turner chose a long dress by Louis Vuitton wit black long sleeves top and silver sequin skirt. She chose a dress with a deep v-neck and  a deep tear on the skirt to show her long legs.



Emily Blunt opted for a Alexander McQuenn gown, Tyler Ellis clutch, Lorrain Schwartz jewelry and Sophia Webster shoes. She chose a dress with a waterfall of black silk frills and a colourful embroidered top. 




La La Land protagonist Emma Stone wore a Chanel Couture dress and clutch, Tiffany & Co. jewelry and Christian Louboutin shoes. Her dress is coming directly from the lastest Haute Couture collection of Chanel and it structured with a dress and coordinated trousers underneath




Amy Adams chose a emerald green gown  by Tom Ford with Jimmy Choo shoes, Tom Ford clutch and David Webb jewelry. Her dress was suoer simple on the front but on the back was super cute with a nice velvet bow as detail.





Felicity Jones opted for a delicate black gown by Christian Dior coming from the recent collection of Maria Grazie Chiuri. She completed her look with Giuseppe Zanotti shoes and Bulgari jewelry.





Bryce Dallas Howard, who was accompanied by her dad Ron Howard, wore a black Solace London dress with Jimmy Choo shoes.




Now let's take an imaginary flight to Los Angeles and see what's the Grammy's offered!
Adele was nominated in five categoris including Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Song of the Year, Best Pop Solo Performance and Best Pop Vocal Album.
On the red carpet, she wore a green custom Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci with Lorraine Schwartz jewels.
While performing she wore a black velvet dress by Givenchy Haute Couture. She honored George Micheal singing one of his most famous song Fastlove and it was amazing despite the little problem at the beginning!



While she was accepting her award for Best Album she broke her Grammy to share it with Beyonce!!! Crazy!! But I love her!




Beyonce wore a red total sequin custom dress by Peter Dundas and for her performance she wore a wonderful gold dress by Peter Dundas. This was the first appearance in public after the announcement of her pregnancy and when she performed she was simply a vision caring not one but two babies! Amazing!





Her sister Solange, who won the Best R&B Performance, wore a Gucci gold lurex metallic gown  with ruffle neckline and pleated skirt.



Jason Derulo was super dapper with his total black look and his amazing coat with fur neck by Giuseppe Zanotti. 



Laverne Cox wore a custom black Bryan Hearns dress with Stuart Weitzman shoes, Lana Jewelry earrings, Borgioni bracelet, Kavant & Sharart and Mimi So rings. She was so sexy!




Rihanna opted for an Armani Privè outfit made of an orange crop top and a voluminous black skirt. She completed her look with Roger Vivier clutch and jewelry by Chopard and David Webb.I really liked her hair style, it almost brought me back to her Pon de Replay era.


Heidi Klum chose a very cute mini silver dress by Philip Plein with Lorraine Schwartz jewelry and Giuseppe Zanotti shoes. 




Celine Dion chose a wonderful emerald green dress by Zuhair Murad with a deep slit and long sleeves directly from the latest Haute Couture collection. She completed her look with Gucci sandals and Dvani earrings. 




Demi Lovato was stunning in her Julien MacDonald dress with David Yurman jewelry, Giuseppe Zanotti shoes and Edie Parker clutch. 






Lady Gaga was super rock'n'roll with her daring outfit by Alex Ulichny.



 Chrissy Teigen wore a Roberto Cavlli dress with Coomi earrings and Jimmy Choo clutch.I love her and her husband John Legend so much.. they are hilarious together!



Jennifer Lopez wore one of the nicest ouftit of the event, a baby pink Ralph & Russo Haute Couture gown with Christian Louboutin shoes and Butani jewelry. 





The host of the event, the amazing and talented James Corden (I'm sorry but I love him too much!)  was with her wife on the red carpet and they both wore Tom Ford. Let's take a minute to appreciate the clutch of Julia which had "Corden" written on it! So cute!



Katy Perry, unfortunately, wore the worst outfit of the night: a sequin dress with a skirt made od feathers by Tom Ford wirh Lorraine Schwartz jewelry. I'm sorry but this is a big NO NO. 






Last night there were a lot of amazing performances apart from Beyonce's, like Adele who performed Hello, Ed Sheeran who performed one of his latest singles Shape of You or The Weeknd together with the Daft Punk who performed I feel it coming and Starboy.





I need to be surprise for the upcoming events because both the Grammy's and the Baftas were a little bit undertone!
What do you think about last night?
