Trend Alert – Long Nails

At first I wasn’t sure about this trend. I thought that they were scary and looked like witch nails. But then I kept seeing them over and over on cute celebs (not just the scary ones), and I got more interested. Then I was seeing them all over instagram and some of my friends got them and I was like ok I’m going to try them. Now I’m kind of obsessed. I really like them because I think they are lady like if you do them right. Plus, if you want to do any of the fun nail art that’s “all the rage” right now it gives you a lot more room on your nail to do it.

First, here are a couple of my favorite celebs with them!

Adele was one of the first to start doing these.

While, Rihanna and Lana del Rey are repeat offenders, in a good way in my opinion. I always love to see what they are gonna do. Bad Girl gets a little crazy for my most of the time, but I still love seeing hers.images (1)tumblr_ldcor3f4eF1qa3cq2o1_500_large

Lana’s are usually a little long for me, but she’s my beauty idol right now. Love her.lana-del-rey-deliciousnail-trends-stiletto-nails-lana-del-rey

Of course, I think the shape definitely changes how I feel about them. My favorite is the almond shape. The “stiletto” or mountain peak is a little too scary for me. But that’s just me personally and the shape of my hands!

Here are a couple of the ones I have gotten done. I was so obsessed with these first ones. I was so sad when they grew out! But it’s fun because I’ve been finding so many other styles I want to try, especially for fall! I do think that the plain nude nail is one my favorite go-to nails right now though.

Here are a couple more than I’ve found on pinterest and the internet that I love!

The 2013 Oscars

The Oscars!!! The biggest awards ceremony of the year! This is what we wait for…and for fashion too! Don’t worry. I sat on my couch for probably like 6-7 hours watching the red carpet shows, the actual show, and after parties. I love all of it. Now I have to make sure I got away all of the movies that got so many awards.

But now onto the dresses! What you were really all waiting for right?

Halle Berry: This is amazing. I had too many favorites already, but I loved this! She had this made for her 007 tribute presentation and I think it totally fits! No one else had a dress even close to something like this. (Versace)
feb-24-oscars-halle-berry-getty__oPt

Catherine Zeta Jones: She looks beautiful, but I’m pretty sure she hasn’t aged in like ten years. I’m not sure if the dress is my favorite though. It kind of looks like cheap gold foil. She looks great in anything though.
Catherine Zeta Jones oscars 2013

Giuliana Rancic: The more I looked at this dress, the more I started to like it. At first I thought it was boring, but all of the cuts make it so pretty.
guiliana_rancic_2013_oscars_red_carpet_18il4ek-18il4en

Jane Fonda: Are you kidding me? How old are you and you look that good? This color and fit were so great. I guess those work outs really do work. Wow is all I have to say…and that’s in a good way.

Jane-Fonda-oscars-500x723

Kelly Osbourne: I’m not a huge fan of this dress, but it wasn’t one of the worst. I didn’t like the the neck straps were supposed to be all over the place…and I just didn’t really like the beading or glitter or whatever that was. I thought the cut kind of made her arms look big too. She is in a lot better shape lately so I’d think she would want something that would make her look smaller.
Kelly Osbourne oscars 2013

Kerry Washington: These colors on her are gorgeous. She has some of the best fashion sense around right now. I loved this dress and the detail on top.(Miu Miu)
Kerry Washington Oscars 2013Kristen Stewart: This look kind of turned into a diaster. I should have put this on my worst dress, but I think the dress itself isn’t bad. It’s a gorgeous dress (if you watched and saw it on stage…the detailing is beautiful). It’s just too big on her and makes her look bigger, and her hair is messy. It’s the Oscars…at least try. I’m honestly surprised she was invited to present in the first place. (Reem Acra)

85th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Sally Field: I am really shocked at how good she looks. I love this on her. The train is amazing and the color is beautiful. Go Sally!
85th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Adele: I’m glad that she wore her hair down this time. I just can’t get over how every time she gets ready her hair and makeup are perfect. I think she looked great. (Jenny Packham)
oscars-2013-adele-jenny-packham-h724

Helen Hunt: She is wearing H&M with $700,000 worth of diamonds…so…the only problem with that is her dress is wrinkly and didn’t fit right. I don’t know if she was trying to be affordable because obviously the diamonds weren’t. I’m not trying to knock her being different, etc…but you can tell that it wasn’t a nice dress. Either that or she should have gotten it fitted to her.

Queen Latifah: I like this. I think she looks classy and elegant. I like that she kept it simple.
Queen Latifah oscars 2013

Little Q: She is the cutest little thing. I can’t get over her! I need to watch the movie that she is in, because she has the cutest little personality and seriously, being nominated at 9?! Anyway, I’m glad they didn’t over dress her and kept her age appropriate.
q-wallis-oscars-2013-2

Maria Menounos: She looks like a darker colored barbie! Gorg! I love it so much. This dress is so bright and beautiful. I’d steal it!maria_menounos_oscars_2013_red_carpet_valley_of_the_dolls_candy_pink_18il5n0-18il5ne

Reese Witherspoon: She had the best hair of the night! She just had a baby and she looks fantastic! The color was gorgeous on her. (Louis Vuitton)

oscars-reese-witherspoon

Octavia Spencer: I love her. She is so cute and always looks great. I do think there was just a little bit too much fabric going on, but she definitely knows what is good on her body! She is very classy. (Tadashi Shoji)
85th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Jennifer Hudson: I think she looks fantastic. This color is beautiful. Her hair is amazing. The only thing I don’t like is I think her shoes are clashing a little bit. (Roberto Cavalli) I also think she looked great in her performance dress.
reg_634.hudson.cm.22413_copyjennifer-hudson-and-i-am-telling-you-at-oscars-2013-video

Renee Zellweger: I like the dress, it’s not one of my favorites, but it fits her perfectly. I did not like her hair at all though. It looked like she didn’t even try.
Renee Zellweger

Selma Hayek: At first I didn’t like this very much, but it grew on me. It’s very different than what she normally wears and I think I like it a lot now. I don’t like the little tiara in her hair though.
Salma-Hayek-Oscars-2013-Pictures

Olivia Munn: There is something I really like about this, but then something I’m not sure about. I like that no one else wore anything like this and I like the colors.
olivia_munn_18iln4l-18iln70

Sandra Bullock: I think she looks really good, but she didn’t take any risks with this. At first I didn’t like her hair, but then I figured if she had put if up it probably would have been more harsh and I would have liked it less. So I liked it, it just wasn’t a fav. (Elie Saab)
Sandra-Bullock-Oscars-2013

Samantha Barks: I really like this. Very simple, but elegant. I like that she didn’t do something way crazy.
samantha barks

WORSTS

Anne Hathaway: I seriously hated this. Yes, it’s very simple, but then she has on this huge necklace that doesn’t match really at all. The back had this big tie that was messy and looked like she just tied it and jumped out of the car or something. She was up for a huge award and this dress was just boring. It was kind of an ugly color and did nothing for her skin. If you saw her from far away she would have looked naked. Plus her nipples were sticking out so bad! Eek! And…I think she could have used some product in her hair? (Prada) I liked her performance dress way more! (see below) She should have just worn that…even thought that’s not my favorite dress either.

Melissa McCarthy: I always feel bad putting her on the worst dressed, but she always kind of picks big drapey things. Yes she is bigger, but she can get something tailored to her that still looks good. This color isn’t great and the slit is black. It’s kinda weird. I wish she would try a little harder.
85th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Nicole Kidman: I kept wanting to like this, but I just can’t. On the red carpet the top actually looked like leopard print, and I hate the circles at the bottom. I would have like this a lot if it was just all one color. Her body looks great at least. I feel like her hair just looks messy. (L’wren Scott)
85th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Zoe Saldana: I saw this dress and loved the top…then I saw the bottom. I HATE the bottom. I don’t know if it’s the grey colors or just the fact the it’s short and then fades into the colors or what. I think it’s all of it. I just don’t like the bottom half at all and that was enough for it to be in my worsts. It’s not an oscar dress for me at all.
85th Annual Academy Awards - People Magazine Arrivals

Nancy O’Dell: This fits her really well, but it looks like a smurf rainbow. I hate this too. This should have just been one color of blue and it would have been much better.85th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Kelly Rowland: This is a long fall from the Grammys. The shape is wrong. It looks like is off kilter or something and her hair just doesn’t look good up in that bun. I know she’s in great shape too, but her legs don’t look good in this dress. I just hate it.85th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

BESTS

Charlize Theron: She looks so sleek and clean here. I love the shape of this dress. I can’t believe how good she looks with short hair. Her face is just perfect. (Dior)

Charlize Theron oscars 2013

George Clooney and Stacy Keibler: He’s starting to look older :(, but I think it’s because of the beard. (Armani) She looks absolutely amazing. I love this dress on her. Fabulous pick. The detailing accentuates all of her best features. Plus Clooney is a pretty good accessory. (Naeem Khan)
85th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Naomi Watts: This dress is so modern! The cut is amazing. It fits her like a glove. I love love love the sparkle on this dress. (Armani)Naomi-Watts-Pictures-Armani-Prive-2013-Oscars

Amanda Seyfried: This dress is so beautiful! I love it! I can’t get over the details on this dress. McQueen makes the best things ever. (Alexander McQueen)
Amanda Seyfried oscars 2013

Jennifer Aniston: I loved this dress! I think it’s very different than what she normal wears on a read carpet. The color was beautiful on her and the shape was so fun.
feb-24-oscars-jennifer-aniston-getty__oPt

Jennifer Garner: She has looked fabulous this whole awards season. I love this so much! From the color, to the jewelry, to the amazing bow/ruffles trailing down the back of the dress. Can’t get enough! (Gucci)Jennifer Farner oscars 2013

Jennifer Lawrence: She is another one that has been amazing this awards season. She is really good at being youthful, but not childish. I love the poof at the bottom! It’s like a Cinderella dress…and it was perfect because she won! I really liked the backwards necklace that she wore also. (Dior Haute Couture)
Jennifer Lawrence oscars 2013

Amy Adams: This is just fabulous. Who wouldn’t want to look like a princess? The skirt is poofy and young and gorgeous. I love it! I would die to wear this. Plus I like that her hair contrasts that dress and is a little bit undone. It’s perfect together! (Oscar de la Renta)
amy adams oscars 2013

Amy Adams oscars 2013Jessica Chastain: This was hands down my favorite of the night. She looks like an Oscar. Absolutely beautiful. True hollywood glamour. The beading was completely tailored to fit the curves of her body, which was amazing. Her lips were the perfect color and her hair was perfect. Fabulous! (Armani)

I think this was my favorite part of the whole awards ceremony. It’s Les Mis portion of the musical tribute. I literally have watched it like 7 times now. I’m so obsessed!  Enjoy!

Also, this is Jennifer Lawrence’s interview after winning best actress. I think she is so cute and so funny.

Grammy’s 2013

Oh I LOVE the Grammy’s! I think it’s the most fun awards show, because I love seeing all of my favorite people perform! I thought this year had some really great performances. Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood, JT and Jay-Z, Rihanna, Mumford and Sons, the tribute to Bob Marley with Sting, Elton John…so many good ones! I’m not even sure which was my favorite, because I thought they were all so good, with maybe the exception of LL Cool J at the end…wasn’t a huge fan of that, but I was surprised that he did pretty well as a host. I thought he would be kind of horrible…not too bad!

Anyway, onto my favorite part…the outfits! I also like the Grammy’s for this reason, because a lot of people have fun with their outfits instead of being sooo serious with them. I like that. However without Lady Gaga or Nicki Minaj I feel like they just weren’t quite as exciting this year as usual. There were a lot of good ones though…so here we go…

Allison Williams: I seriously love this girl. She always looks fantastic. I wish she had done something a little bit more exciting though. This dress is gorgeous, but the color is a little bit blah for this night. I would have liked to see her in something bright or even shorter.

The 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards - Arrivals

Karlie Kloss: I think she looks adorable. I love the color and her hair! Ohmigosh I wish I had her legs and body!

The 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards - Arrivals

Maria Menounos: I love her hair and makeup. I really like the shape of this dress, but for some reason I just can’t stop thinking about bananas…I wish it was more neon or just a different color.

The 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards - Arrivals

Alexa Chung: I think she is so cute too! She interviewed the red carpet for Fuse and she is darling! I love this dress, but not totally for an awards show. I feel like she could wear this any day…I wish she did something a little more glam.Alexa Chung

Beyonce: At first I saw the top and hated it, but when I found out it was pants I liked it a lot more. I give her props for not wearing a dress and going a different route than normal. Super simple and clean. Not sure if I would like it on someone else though. However, I don’t think it was dressy enough. It looks like something she could wear on any day. Beyonce Grammys

Natasha Bedingfield: At first I was going to put this in my worst dressed because I didn’t like the shape of it…but then I started to like it more and more. I don’t love the silver belt. I do like the fabric though. I think it depends on how you see her standing, whether or not you like the dress.Natasha Bedingfield grammys

Miranda Lambert: Her face is always perfect. This wasn’t my favorite dress. I don’t think it flatters her arms and the color is just ok. I do however love the dress she wore for her performance. I feel like that fits her personality so much better! Love the sparkle and pattern. The 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards - Red Carpet

Miranda performance

Kaley Cuoco: I really like this look. It’s chill, but fashionable and just something different. I would totally wear this.Kaley Cuoco Grammys

Kat Dennings: To be honest I don’t love this dress. I don’t think it’s the best color on her and I don’t love the length or the shoes she picked with it. I didn’t put it on my worst dressed though because for once her boobs are not totally hanging out and it looked a lot better on stage than on the red carpet.Kay Dennings grammys

Adele: As my friend said, I wish she hadn’t worn her grandma’s tablecloth…BUT it’s not black! So in a way I kind of like it. Redeeming qualities include…the shape of the dress. Her makeup and hair are perfect though. Put the whole thing together and made me like it more. #Valentino

Adele Grammys

Kelly Rowland: At first I LOVED this dress…the shape and the pattern on it, but then I realized that it wasn’t a pattern…it was cutouts and I didn’t like it as much. Up close, it was too much. She does look amazing though. The mermaid style bottom looked fantastic on her. I want her body.Kelly Rowland Grammys

Katy Perry: I actually really liked this dress and loved the color. This is my favorite color right now and it looked so good on her! I don’t think I would like it on anyone else though, and I’m not a huge fan of the jewels at the top. This is what I mean by doing something different though. Most people wouldn’t wear something like this, but it totally fits Katy. I liked it a lot. #GucciKaty Perry Grammys

Kelly Osbourne: I hate her stupid purple hair. Now that that’s out of the way, I thought she looked pretty good. I liked the simple black dress and simple hairstyle. She’s not my favorite person in the world, but she looks so good compared to what she used to look and dress like.Kelly Osbourne Grammys

Nicole Kidman: I’m not really a fan of the see-through bottom, but I think the dress other than that is really pretty and this color looks really good on her. #VeraWangNicole Kidman Grammys

Carly Rae Jepsen: I wish this dress had been green! Then I would have loved it. I felt like the black made it look a little bit goth with her makeup and dark hair. I think the dress is gorgeous though. I love the mermaid-ish look. I do wish it was like a tiny bit more hemmed though. It made her look short and like she was going to trip. I don’t love her hair. I wish she would have done it up. #RobertoCavalliThe 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards - Red Carpet

Nicole Richie: This was an after party dress, but I loved it so much that I had to post it on here with all the other ones. I LOVE the shape and fabric. She looks fabulous! I even like her hair slicked back like that. Almost a best dressed, but it kinda doesn’t count since it was after the show…Nicole Richie grammys

Estelle: Ok ok, the pattern is hideous, but I couldn’t put it on worst dressed, because look at the shape and the back! If this had been any other pattern or color I think I would have put it on my best dressed.

Estelle Grammys

WORSTS:

Jennifer Lopez: I want to throw up on this whole ensemble. I hate the stupid tight bun on her head. It didn’t work with the flowyness of the dress. Then…ummm the missing fabric? It’s not even a slit. It’s an entire chunk missing from the dress. I just didn’t think that it was flattering at all…and J.Lo can get away with a lot.

Jennifer Lopez Grammys

Kimbra: I’m not even going to talk about her hair. She must have gotten electrocuted before the show. Anyway, I do NOT like all of the weird guazy stips popping up everywhere all over the dress. I actually might have liked it if those had just not been on the dress. It looks like a Kleenez box attacked her.Kimbra Grammys

Janelle Monet: I think she looks like a little boy. This is not a femine suit. Plus it looks like she’s trying to be a matador. I don’t like the hat. It makes her little hair thing look weird.

Janelle Monet grammys

Alicia Keys: O Alicia, usually I love your outfits. I am not a fan of her slicked back hair with this dress. I thought it looked good with her performance dress, but not here. I don’t like the snake skin cut out top. It looks like it came from Halle Berry’s Catwoman outfit. Then the skirt made her hips look kind of big and popped back out funny at the bottom. It’s not the gradual “mermaid” look you want. It looked like it was squeezing her.Alicia Keys Grammys

Ashanti: First of all, I didn’t even know she was still around. But this dress should make her go back into hiding. I HATE the flower detail on it. I can’t tell if it’s supposed to be see-through or not. The top just isn’t flattering. I don’t like how high the slit was or the cutout right in the middle. It was just a bad choice.The 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards - Arrivals

Solange Knowles: Her hair is not ok. I usually love the fro she rocks, but it looks like it’s kind of going limp here. The color of the dress looks good on her, but something about it just isn’t flattering her body. Maybe it’s the cap sleeves or something. I just didn’t like any of it.The 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards - Red Carpet

BESTS:

Florence Welch: Ah my love! She’s just my favorite. Here is a green dress that completely works! I love this color with her hair. It’s fitted perfectly to her body. I don’t even mind the weird spikes that much because I just love this so much. #Givenchy

The 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards - Arrivals

Skylar Grey: This looks fantastic on her! I love the bright red and the shape. It’s beautiful.

Skylar Grey Grammys

Faith Hill and Tim McGraw: These two always look so perfect. I can’t get over her dress. I love the detail on top and I think it’s the cutest shape. I swear both of them get better looking every year. #JMendelFaith Hill grammys

Carrie Underwood: This surprised me a little bit because she rarely wears black, but I think she looks great. The dress is a little bit edgy so that’s different for her. Her hair and makeup are always perfect.  #RobertoCavalli Then for her performance, I wasn’t sure about the dress, but they started doing all of the cool light effects on it and I loved it. She is soooo good!

Carrie Underwood Grammys

carrie-underwood-hunter-haynes-grammys-2013-performance-watch-now-06

Taylor Swift: I think she gets better and better every year too. This is gorgeous. I love that she is looking more and more grown up all the time with her style. It’s elegant and I like the silver detail at the top a lot. I think this color looks great on her because she’s so fair too. It doesn’t wash her out though, even though she’s not super tan. #JMendelTaylor Swift grammys

Umm, also how fun was her performance. She puts on such a good show. I think she’s getting better at performances too. For a while she was kind of trying a little bit hard and now I feel like she knows the right balance.taylor-swift-grammys-2013-performance-watch-now-03

Rihanna: She won my best dressed last year too, but look at her! That color is phenomenal on her and I love how soft her whole look is. I love the flowing hair and dress. Hands down my favorite.

Rihanna grammysI also liked both of her performance outfits and songs. They were so good. I LOVED the white outfit she wore for the Bob Marley tribue. Totally fitting. She’s so small though! gty_rihanna_grammys_performance_stay_lpl_130210_vblogrihanna

Also…I can’t finish my post without a photo of these two. AMAZING!!! I love that Jay-Z just sat in his seat, walked on stage, performed, and went and sat back down. Yay, JT is back!161411105_justin_timberlake_jay_z
