I had to share some looks from Cannes this year, because there were some really beautiful outfits. Popular trends seemed to be bright prints or black and white. Kind of a big contrast to each other, but I loved them. Carey Mulligan’s looks were some of my favorites, along with Marion Cotillard’s and Nicole Kidman’s. She’s always a shocker for me because I either love her or hate her, but I loved these. Take a look and let me know what you guys think!
I really liked most of these dresses. They’re all pretty classy seeing as they’re going to the White House so I think that’s why I liked them so much. Nothing too crazy, but some really beautiful dresses.
There really wasn’t anything horrible, but these were just the ones that I didn’t love…
Sharon Stone: I kind of think she looks like Cruela DeVile…It looks too dark and scary the way it’s all put together and I don’t think her hair is helping that. It’s almost looks slicked back and gelled. She should have done it softer with this look.
Patricia Arquette: I’m just not sure what’s going on here…she just looks wild…it’s just a little crazy. Her hair’s not done. She doesn’t look like she tried to do her makeup. And the dress doesn’t fit her. It’s too small on top. I lied, this one it pretty horrible.
Kerry Washington: By far my favorite. She just never let’s me down. The fit is perfect and I love love the bottom, the way it folds over. She’s so classy.

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)
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.
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.
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.
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)
Kristen 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)
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.
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.
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)
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)
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.
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.
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)
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.
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)
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.
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.
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)
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)
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 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)
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)
Jessica 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.

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.
Karlie Kloss: I think she looks adorable. I love the color and her hair! Ohmigosh I wish I had her legs and body!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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. #Gucci
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.
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. #RobertoCavalli
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…
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
Skylar Grey: This looks fantastic on her! I love the bright red and the shape. It’s beautiful.
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. #JMendel
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!
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. #JMendel
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.
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.
