I thought my fashion gazing was over for the season until this little gem popped up on my TiVo guide. As I said last year, I’ve outgrown their categories and I don’t even recognize half the participants, but I could watch the red carpet arrivals and see if anything captures my attention, right?
I needn’t have bothered. It wasn’t very interesting. Most of the men dressed like they just rolled out of bed. The women alternated between looking great, trying to hard, and needing more fabric. I’m not sure I’ll recap this next year, unless the fashions are truly stunning.
Jennifer Lopez in Versace. She’s been on my best dressed list all season. She goes into the summer the reigning fashion queen of the 2015 awards season.
Anna Camp in Peter Pilotto. I just love the bright colors of this little dress. She truly looked like spring personified. And she managed to stay on the right side of the “just sexy enough” line.
Shailene Woodley in Isabel Marant. I applaud the courage to mix prints and when done well, it can be amazing. This didn’t work for me.
Hailee Steinfeld. I should like this. She’s young enough to try and pull off an edgy look. But, again, another ensemble that didn’t work for me.
Farrah Abraham. I think she tried a little too hard. It’s clear that she feels good and loves her dress, but it’s a little to formal for this event.
Bai Ling. Umm…
TREND? The partial dress
Emily Ratajkowski in Fausto Puglisi.
And finally, an update about the E! Fashion Police scandal I mentioned last month. After my blog posted, E! made the decision to put Fashion Police on an extended hiatus, after Kelly Osbourne and Kathy Griffin left the show in the wake of the Zendaya/Guiliana Rancic scandal. They plan to return in the fall with a limited number of episodes tied to major events, like the Emmys with Rancic, Brad Goreski and anyone else they attempt to bring in.
There’s a down side to living your life in front of cameras and on social media. You get “comfortable” and feel like you can say anything.
