CelebrityStyle File: The 2013 Grammy’s!

The 2013 Grammy’s had some great moments; LL hosted, JT is officially back (and looking better than ever, I might add), and Prince showed up with an entirely diamond-encrusted cane.
And among all the Grammy Award winners and show-stopping performances, there were some fabulous fashion finds.
Here are some of our stand-outs from the night, including some risk-takers and rule-breakers!


Red Done Right: Rihanna and Natasha Bedingfield put the red carpet to shame in crimson, floor-length gowns, completing their look with subtle make-up, and loose waves.


Babes in Black: Whether dressed up or barely dressed at all, these two divas always look fab. Beyonce kept it cool & trendy in a color block suit, meanwhile, J. Lo left little to the imagination in Anthony Vaccarello.


Southern Show-Stopper: Along with an amazing performance, Carrie Underwood simply slayed in Roberto Cavalli! We couldn’t take our eyes off the intricate bodice and Carrie’s sultry look.


Pretty in Prints: The always adorable Adele ditched the dark and went for a bold patterned dress, and Alexa Chung was the picture of perfection in Valentino.


Brilliant Bodices: Kelly Rowland looked sexy in strategic cut-outs, and Allison Williams hung up her preppy ‘Girls’ digs for a beautiful beaded gown.

And the Winner Is…: Taylor Swift looked almost reminiscent of a Grecian goddess in a mythical J. Mendel gown that was simply unmatched. Taylor has looked nothing shy of phenomenal as of late, and we can’t wait to see what she shows up in next!

Alright, fashionistas, who do you think was a red carpet cutie, and who hit the wrong note?

CelebrityCelebrity Style Watch: Printed Shorts

Shorts are a major wardrobe staple this time of year and I think it’s time we all trade in our usual pair for a printed pair this season! The up-and-coming printed shorts trend is very versatile and you can style yours with patterned tees, crisp button-ups or colorful chiffon tops. Some major celebs have been out and about in their super cute printed shorts, and they’ve inspired us to put together some amazing LuLu*s outfits! 
Get these looks for yourself and rock the printed shorts trend! 
 

 

FashionTrend to Try: Mixed Prints

If you’re ready to mix things up this summer, why not try mixing your prints? Stars like Kristen Stewart rock this bold look with a punch of colors. Here she is (pictured left) in a Proenza Schouler Spring 2010 ensemble.

I’m very much a matchy matchy gal and was a little wary of trying out the trend myself. However, runway looks, celebrity fashions and recent street styles have really inspired me to give it a try.

Some general tips:
*Pair a large bold print with a smaller, subtle print.
*Mix up the textures of fabric.
*Stay within the same general, color palette.
*Also, a solid color belt can break up the look and keep it from overwhelming the eyes.
 
 
Pictured above, actress Leighton Meester mixes her preppy prints as Blair on the set of Gossip Girl. I love the color palette here, but I could do without the neck tie. Rachel Bilson and Rihanna stick with neutral blacks, greys and whites. My favorite is Rachel Bilson’s look, hands down.
 

Combining stripes and florals is also quite common. Our popular Mix Master Dress in Orange (pictured left) already does it for you! I love how the orange stripes really tie in with the bright orange flowers. Lulu*s stylist, Cara, took a fashion forward step by pairing the new Day at the Circus Top with the bright Pretty as a Poppy Skirt (pictured right). The look is rather striking, but it works!

So, what do you think? Are you inspired to mix up those prints? :)

FashionGrammy Style Favs

Hey, ladies (and whatever gents happen upon our blog)! We have new interns, and they are going to be doing a weekly blog! They split up this week to explore the fashion trends at the GRAMMYS! Read below to see some of their favorite dresses, celebs, and trends. (You’ll even see how to find one for yourself!)

Hey guys, this is Torrey and Michelle and we are two of the new Lulus.com interns. We will both be posting weekly blogs covering topics we find interesting. Check out our blogs and comment to let us know what you think. Hope to hear any comments you have!

Any performer’s dream is to one day walk the red carpet of the Grammy Awards. The two most important things for any artist at the Grammys is their acceptance speech and their outfit.

Out of all the dresses that walked down the red carpet at the 2010 Grammy Awards, the elegant backless style worn by Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, and Rihanna were some of our favorites.  We feel that all three of these artists pulled their gowns off perfectly, showing their back but still showing class.

 

Like always, Taylor swift looks beautiful in an off the shoulder backless blue gown from Kaufman Franco.

Katy Perry shows off her elegance in a backless beige and gold gown from Zac Posen.


Rihanna looks stunning in a high neck, open back white gown detailed with feathers from Elie Saab Haute Couture.

Hey everyone! What’s up, my name is Lauren and I am a new intern at LuLus.com. I’ll be doing weekly blogs as well so I hope you guys enjoy!

I thought Keri Hilson looked amazing in this dress by Dolce & Gabbana, she definitely was my favorite of the night. Fergie also looked gorgeous wearing a design by Emilio Pucci.

Jennifer Hudson looked stunning on the red carpet in a dress from Victoria Beckham’s Spring 2010 collection. A similar look at Lulus, the Bye Bye Baby Dress [sold out!] makes a statement with a slim waistline and powerful shoulders.
