Met Costume Institute Gala 2013

 Cameron Diaz in Stella McCartney
Nicole Richie in Topshop
Emily Blunt in Carolina Herrera 
Ginnifer Goodwin in Tory Burch
Minka Kelly in Carolina Herrera
Amanda Seyfried in Givenchy
Amber Heard in Emilio Pucci

Since many of you have spoken out on some of our red carpet choices in the past, we have chosen to call these looks the MORE modest choices from the red carpet. Obviously not every dress fits every criteria of modesty, but we'd have to say many of these are pretty dang close, and pretty dang fabulous.  By the way, the event was called "PUNK: from Chaos to Couture," after the new exhibit showing at the Met, so many celebrities stepped out in their punk wear, hair and makeup.  Some were oh so fabulous, others frankly were a mess. But hey it's one of couture fashion's biggest nights and always fun to see how crazy it can get. By the way, that Stella McCartney dress Cameron Diaz is wearing is oh so amazing (and that belt will kill you).

White House Correspondent's Dinner 2013

Kate Mara in Chanel
Nicole Kidman in Emilio Pucci
Amy Poehler in Basler
Conni Britton in Temperley London
Emily Mortimer in Oscar de la Renta

So nice to see so many more demure looks from the famous dinner. Also of note is Michelle Dockery's Elie Saab look that was gorgeous but slightly sleeveless. Enjoy!

Cate Blanchett - Dubai Film Festival

We are a little late to the party with these looks from Cate (last year), but we wanted to post them anyway. The upper top and skirt look is from the designer Peter Pilotti and the gown is by Rodarte. Want a more affordable version of the upper look? Although that Pilotti top is incredible, you can achieve a similar look with a black peplum skirt and scarf print blouse. Come to think of it, this scarf print blouse is pretty similar as well...not to mention it looks pretty close to the one we featured Nicole Warne wearing a few posts ago....

Katie Aselton in Juan Carlos Obando

We couldn't resist this gorgeous gown (even though it's slightly low cut). Here is Katie Aselton in Juan Carlos Obando, a designer we were unaware of until yesterday. The collection this dress specifically comes from has many other beautiful dresses you can view here. This look definitely reminds us of our look here.

Modest Dresses - Oscars 2013

Sally Field in Valentino
Sandra Bullock in Elie Saab
Jennifer Hudson in Roberto Cavalli
Alicia Vikander in Elie Saab
Hilary Swank in Valentino
Zooey Deschanel in Valentino
Allison Williams in Valentino
Adele in Jenny Packham

Our favorite of the night was probably Sally Field in Valentino. One of us missed the red carpet show but caught her in the award ceremony and swore that it was Valentino. We guessed right! We've seen a lot of young actresses sporting Valentino lately, but oh how classy she looks. Valentino was seen quite a lot on this year's red carpet, especially at the famous Vanity Fair after party. Obviously you all are very aware of how partial we've been to the designer for a while. So did any of you have a favorite look (Valentino or not) of the night?

Emma Stone - Valentino Resort '13

In honor of  Valentine's Day yesterday, we decided to give you some pink. You guys remember this look we showed you a while back right? Well here's Emma Stone sporting it! We love it when some of our favorite looks end up on the red carpet.

Miranda Kerr - Casual Friday

Miranda Kerr

We decided to make this week a full casual week since we're in the middle of red carpet and fashion month. We'll definitely be seeing loads of dressier wear. We always say over here that after the holidays, winter gets kind of boring and you're really just enduring the cold by february, so this week is full of looks that should help make the cold not only more bearable, but also more fun. Find yourself a new nice coat or pair of sunglasses to help liven things up. Tons of stores are having major sales right now, so go out and rid yourselves of the winter doldrums!

Selena Gomez - Casual Chic

Selena Gomez - Casual Chic

Loving this look from Selena. One of us is wishing sooooo much that she didn't give away her jean jacket so she could try this underneath a bigger sweater or coat. Might have to go find a new one. But, if YOU have one, we definitely say you should try a look like this. SOOOO cool.

 Nina Dobrev in Elie Saab
 Rose Byrne in Valentino
 Jenna Fischer in Jenny Packham
Busy Phillips in Gabriela Cadena

You know it's award season when red carpet evening wear starts gracing our blog more and more. Do you guys remember the Valentino Dress Rose Byrne is wearing up top? You probably remember us loving it here. However, we're kind of thinking we like the Golden Globes dresses better....

Wednesday, January 23, 2013


You guys were right! We missed one! Although the back was a little low, this Zac Posen dress was quite amazing. We're wishing we had performed on his runway this year so he could gift us this dream of a dress. Oh well. Having any Posen evening wear in the closet is seriously out of this world.

Michelle Dockery in Alexander Vauthier
Nicole Richie in Naeem Khan
Kristen Bell in Jenny Packham (maternity gown)

Wow, we've both been super busy that we somehow actually MISSED the Golden Globes (it's been a while since that happened).  But here are some of the most beautiful gowns of the night, in our opinion. Michelle Dockery up top is absolutely stunning. We're not quite sure if there is a nude lining underneath the bodice, but we sure are hoping there is, because we just love the look and cut of that dress. Did we miss any others that you guys liked?

Kate Bosworth - Casual Style

Yep, She's got some pretty cool style going. She definitely has her OWN style which is cool and we totally respect. AND she's not afraid to wear her pieces repeatedly. So, the moral of the story is that we think Kate's pretty cool. Also, totally taking inspiration in the bigger sweater paired with longer skirts....

Friday, December 21, 2012


Although this look is a bit short, we couldn't resist how cute she looks. It's also inspiration in color. (We'll have to try the nude with grey combo soon.) It also led us into finding more about the designer, who we are loving at the moment. We'll definitely show you more looks of his in the future. Until then, enjoy!

KATE BOSWORTH - Burberry Prorsum

Here's some more Burberry inspiration for you. We happened to have loved this sweater when Kate showed up wearing it at the Fall Burberry Prorsum show. Now, we don't know if this is really 'legal,' but we found an exact copy here for A LOT less (we're actually stunned there IS an exact copy. We say "legal" because we know knock off brands can potentially get in a lot of trouble when something is an exact replica). But here you have it! If you're looking for a celebrity/runway look for much cheaper, we've also got a similar skirt and pair of boots as well. Enjoy!

TAYLOR SWIFT - A Vision in Sky Blue

Well I guess our mother was right when she used to say that "blondes look good in blue." Taylor looked pretty amazing here in both looks of that color. Here at the bottom, she's in a Pre-Fall dress by Elie Saab which she wore while attending his Spring collection in Paris a couple of weeks ago. It looks like she decided to stay in town a bit longer to film her newest music video called "Begin Again" (don't you wished you looked so cool on a bike?).  We haven't had a more modest celebrity post in a while, so we figured we'd let you in on some of Taylor's wanderings as of late. I think we'll be taking note of the sky blue and red lips in the near future....
