MusicBest of the Fest: LuLu*s at First City Festival

7

I have had a pretty great festival season, and First City Festival was the perfect way to end it! It was the festival’s first year, but they totally pulled it off. The food was fabulous (awesome food trucks galore), the bands were amazing, and there was even a carnival! It took place at Monterey’s County Fair Grounds and Event Center, where the Monterey Pop Festival took place in 1967, which was a super fun fact to me being obsessed with 60s and 70s culture.

Purity Ring, Toro y Moi, and Capital Cities were up there in my favorites along with Dr. Dog, Washed Out, and Delta Spirit. But in the end, pretty much every band I saw this weekend was amazing! In the photo above, you can see us LuLu*s girls goofing around at the festival. Check out more of my fav bands, festival looks, and instagram snaps below!

CelebrityStyle File: 2013 MTV Video Music Awards!

If you missed the MTV Video Music Awards this year, you’re sure to have been filled in on all the exciting moments. Miley was shocking, *NSYNC was dreamy, and the fashion was absolutely fabulous! Below are the lovely ladies (and a couple of gents) that made our Best Dressed list for the night!

statementsirens

Statement Sirens: Rita Ora turned the red carpet sky blue with the dramatic train on her Alexandre Vauthier Couture dress, while Selena Gomez commanded the crowd in a sexy studded Atelier Versace!

ciara

Ciara was simply stunning on the red carpet! Her delicately detailed Givenchy gown was flawless, and she was quite the show-stopper!

mtvmavens

MTV Mavens: We were totally taken by the two leading ladies of MTV’s Teen Wolf. Crystal Reed wore a brilliant red Zac Posen number, while Holland Roden wore an ivory pant/dress hybrid that was flirty & fun!

daftpunk

Dapper Punks: We tend to focus on the ladies for our style recaps, but come on, how could we NOT mention the most dashing duo of the night? Daft Punk made us swoon in their suit & tie combos, with shoes that had more sparkle than their signature helmets!

backtobasics

Back to Basics: We couldn’t help but be completely smitten with these babes, who chose to keep it classic & classy! Naya Rivera was a total knockout in her floor-length Paco Rabanne, and Allison Williams (a repeat favorite of ours) was très chic in Valentino!

taylor

Taylor, Taylor, Taylor!

She was our hands-down favorite in Hervé Léger By Max Azria. The  midnight blue gown fit her like a glove, and the bodice was to-die-for. Taylor totally encompassed Old-Hollywood glamour! We are still buzzing about this dress (and her blatant diss to ex Harry Styles!), and want to congratulate her on her VMA win!

What fashion found you “oohing” & “aahing” at the VMA’s?
