Red Carpet Eye Candy…{3}

It's been awhile since we had one of these, hasn't it? ;D  I hope you enjoy all these things of pretty!


Yes.  Me likey.  It's quite simple, yet dramatic, and I think the cut, color and styling are all very flattering to Heidi.  (Plus, I'm pretty sure it was designed by Zac Posen, and if you watch Project Runway, that'll just make you smile inside.)


How awesome is this?!  She looks like a butterfly, and in the best possible way.  As I've mentioned before, that more neutral peachy color is not often a favorite of mine, but sometimes a celebrity will pull it off perfectly.  This ensemble really fascinates me :)


This is legitimately adorable.  And I don't usually even like tea-length dresses for the red carpet.  It's so perky, but sweet and elegant at the same time.  I love the bodice, and how Anne mixed the golds and didn't necessarily match them.  


I'm not really all that used to patterned red carpet selections, but this is "really quite lovely."  The colors are all great for Michelle (aren't I cute, calling all these celebrities by their first names), and though it's definitely architectural, it's still elegant.  And her hair and makeup look gorgeous.


Ahh, yes, the gown that made Alicia Vikander an overnight Disney princess, as the saying is.  (Is that a saying?  I'm not sure.  It sounds like something I've heard before.  Anywho, moving on.)  It's always cool to see a celebrity wear a bold color on the red carpet, and this is no exception.  Just look at her face, people!  She looks so springlike and fresh and bubbling and vivacious and innocent and young and just presh.  Hearts <3


I must have my share in the conversation sparkles in these posts, and Emmy Rossum has delivered ;D  It's like wearing stars, as one of you loverly peoples said in a previous post.  


The differing-lengths style typically isn't my thing, but it is growing on me, I'll give it that.  I've liked this number since I first saw it quite a while ago.  The shoulder accents give it some more character, and the floor-length cutout skirt keeps it from being too short.  The magenta heels also bring out some interesting tints in the blue, don't you think?  


Again, another gown I've loved for a long time.  Does anyone else positively love the styling for this one?  The pink lip color might be too bright in most situations, but since the rest of the outfit is so simple, it really adds something.  It's just flow-y and elegant and beautiful, and I love that she wore this when she won her Oscar for The Blind Side (which, by the by, is a movie you really ought to see if you haven't).  


I don't really like the upper half *aHERM*, but below the waist is just incredible.  The closer you look, the more amazing details and swirls and patterns you find.  It's so striking and unique; I like it vey mucho.  


And lastly, this swath of gorgeousness.  This was a chance find last night, and I'm so happy I happened upon it.  That color would wash me out terribly, but Claire Danes pulls it off beautifully.  The sheen of the material, the details of the bodice, the Cinderella-ness of it!  Flawless.  

What do you think of these gowns?
Do we like any of the same ones?
Which was your favorite?

  2. Ooooooohhhhhhh . . . THAT LAST ONE THOUGH. It's perfect. I LOVE the color (I couldn't wear it either, but that doesn't matter), and it's just so lovely and Cinderella-like.

    I really love the color of Taylor Swift's dress--I don't really care for the shape, but that turquoise blue is BEAUTIFUL. I could wear it myself, actually, I think :-)

  6. Emmy Rossum's is my favourite by far. Claire Dunes' dress at the end is AMAZINGNESS as well - DID YOU KNOW IT LIT UP IN THE DARK??? Claire Dune was just about the only well-dressed person at the met gala, in my opinion. (Don't even get me started on Taylor Swifts terrible new look. :-P HER WHITE HAIR. WUT???)

  7. Ooohhh. YUMMY. :D

    I love Alicia's yellow dress, Emma Rossum's starry one, and especially Claire Dane's the best. Also the fact that Claire's glows in the dark! :O BONUS POINTS!! She looks like a Cinderella. If it just had a slightly higher neckline I'd love it to death.

  14. That last one really does look like a Cinderella dress! And I like the skirt of the one above it (though of course the top of the dress...*A-HEM*...is not quite my thing). But the skirt really is pretty. There's so much detail in the fabric.
