CelebrityStyle File: 2014 MTV Movie Awards!

The MTV Movie Awards are always a riot that turns Hollywood on its ear with outlandish surprises and non-stop laughs, and this year was no different! Conan O’ Brien was our fearless leader for the evening, and the stars were pulling out all the stops (Zac Efron’s shirtless salute, anyone?)! And while the red carpet may not have been studded with the fanciest of gowns, our favorite starlets kept it fun and fabulous!

Rita Ora and Nicki Minaj captured the most elegant of looks in their floor-length, demure black gowns. Rita wore a plunging Barbara Casasola, while Nicki donned a fabulous Alexander McQueen!

Oh, Ellie! This stunning songstress looked like a dream in her flowing, cut-out, ivory dress!

The mini was made fabulous by the lovely Shailene Woodley and Victoria Justice! Shailene wore an olive leather Balmain dress, and Victoria was pretty in a purple Atelier Versace!

Our best dressed for the night? Lupita Nyong’o! Because, really, she is perfection in Chanel! The colors are bold, the shape is unique, and we are sure no one else could have pulled this off quite like our girl! A+, babe!

Before we go, can we just acknowledge Zac Efron’s abs?! Jessica and Rita, we are forever jealous. Oof!

CelebrityStyle File: 2014 Golden Globes After Parties!

What do celebrities like to do once the Golden Globes are over? Kick off their heels, loosen up their bow ties, and PAR-TAY! We simply adore seeing the A-list let their hair down and dance the night away! Also, after-parties mean lots of wardrobe changes, and gowns that gave those red carpet numbers a run for their money!

FashionLooks We ♥: Luxe

Luxe. What, exactly, do I mean? I’m talking opulence, regality, excess, luxury. Gold, brocade, velvet, pearls, intricate embroidery, jewels; textures fit for a queen. It’s all about Baroque. Dolce & Gabbana got me started on this kick, then Balmain vied for my affection, and Valentino! Gorgeous! Now, I’m in love, I’m in love, and I don’t care who knows it!
I mean, how gorgeous was Jessica Chastain at the Oscars in Alexander McQueen? The gold embroidery was to-die-for!
The thing is, I’m smitten, and here’s why:

FashionBest of Pre-Fall 2012

Okay, so if you didn’t know, we just finished the pre-fall season for 2012. Below I  highlighted my 10 favorite collections from the pre-fall season, in no particular order. You can agree with me or not, it’s okay, it’s what make the world turn, you know? You can always comment with your thoughts (wink wink, nudge nudge). 
 




 


 

 



 
*So Chanel would totally make this list (it was one of my fav shows) but we already did a blog on it. So, don’t freak out, k?

FashionTrend Alert: Smoking Slippers

 
You don’t have to be a shoe writer (it does help though!) to notice that the hot new flat of the season is well, smokin. (Oh, pardon me. I punned). The smoking slipper is EVERYWHERE, (LuLu*s included!), and it’s much less “Hef” and more “her” than you might expect.
 

 
Everyone from Christian Louboutin (yes, red soles included), Jimmy Choo, Alexander McQueen, and Rebecca Minkoff to Sam Edelman and Ralph Lauren have contributed to the trend, vamping it up with fun prints and colors, sparkles, spikes, studs, and even skulls. Check out some of the stars spreading the word:
 

Alexa Chung and SJP working the versatility of Charlotte Olympia’s super popular Kitty slipper flats (above).
 
Clockwise from top left: Nicky Hilton, Olivia Palermo, Ashley Olsen, and Kate Moss
 
Beyonce goes retro in her “Countdown” video (above).
 

LOVE how street style superstar Giovanna Battaglia (above) dresses hers up!
 
Rihanna’s got three different pairs:
 
 
And check out how much Anne Hathaway loves her “Rolling Spikes” Louboutins!
 

 
Converting flat-haters worldwide, the smoking slipper (I also have a tendency to call them loafers) adds a classic polish to any look, and hits the menswear trend on the nose. I’m particularly loving the dressed up look as an alternative to heels, especially in a more feminine, low cut silhouette.
 
Now, you know LuLu*s has your back on this one, so check out all of our lovely options!

Confession: I may have taken the Qupid Strip 27 home in Berry, Mustard, and Leopard (sold out), so don’t be too shy to splurge!
