Red Carpet Rundown: The Best Dressed At The 2013 Emmys

Red Carpet Rundown: The Best Dressed At The 2013 Emmys

Wow, last night’s Emmys ceremony was a tricky red carpet to judge. By which we mean, looks for the most part were your typical awards show turf (big, bold and boring) but the rest of them were interesting in all the wrong ways (weird bodices, strange appliqués, super exaggerated flounces) (but we’ll get to that)–leaving us with a somewhat motley crew of occasionally very beautiful winners, some of which are a little odd. Let’s take a look. More »

Chrissy Teigen, John Legend Marry In Italy–Here’s The Gigantic Wedding Dress

Chrissy Teigen, John Legend Marry In Italy--Here's The Gigantic Wedding Dress

Congratulations are in order for social media savvy swimsuit model Chrissy Teigen–she wed longtime boyfriend John Legend this weekend in Lake Como, Italy, in front of a star-studded group of guests including Kanye West, Quincy Jones, Stevie Wonder and Brooklyn Decker. Wonder even took to the piano at one point. Teigen, 27, wore a massive, strapless ivory Vera Wang gown for the actual ceremony–but changed into another look by the designer for the reception. More »

5 Of The Biggest Color Trends For Spring 2014 From NYFW

5 Of The Biggest Color Trends For Spring 2014 From NYFW

Here at The Gloss, we tend to shy away from the too-common bullying language of many fashion publications–5 Designer Items You Need Right Now! 5 Bags Everyone Will Have!, etc–because it’s unrealistic and obnoxious (no one needs a designer anything, for one).

However, for those of you who like following fashion but feel no obligation to spend a month’s rent on a damn handbag, one very easy way to translate the runway to your regular old wardrobe is with color. By incorporating the season’s biggest shades–whether through recycling stuff you already have or buying something new–you’ll achieve roughly the same effect as wearing trendy, eye-catching (and super expensive) runway pieces. Next Spring, these are the colors you’ll be seeing. More »

The CFDA Awards went down last night and the big winners were Proenza Schouler (womenswear designer of the year), Phillip Lim (accessories designer of the year) and Suno (Swarovski Award for Emerging Talent in Womenswear). Oh, and everyone who’s famous for their red carpet presence showed up too–Jessica Chastain, Rooney Mara, Kerry Washington and a whole slew of models.

White Gowns Apparently Just For Basic B*tches Now: 13 Nontraditional Wedding Dresses From The Spring 2014 Bridal Shows

White Gowns Apparently Just For Basic B*tches Now: 13 Nontraditional Wedding Dresses From The Spring 2014 Bridal Shows

The Spring 2014 bridal collections have shown and the big surprise is… more nontraditional wedding dresses. We see this pretty regularly (dove gray, pale pink, mint green and the like), but it’s still always a surprise how polarizing it is. We’re of the opinion that no woman should feel required to wear a long white dress (or, uh, get married, for that matter) but the sight of a nonwhite gown sends others into irrational frenzy.

So, for those of you interested in/horrified by nonwhite gowns or other variously nontraditional wedding dresses, here are the latest from the Spring runways, featuring Vera Wang, Marchesa, Monique Lhuillier and more. More »

Red Carpet Rundown: Hot Pink Prom Fashion At The Breast Cancer Research Foundation’s Hot Pink Party

Red Carpet Rundown: Hot Pink Prom Fashion At The Breast Cancer Research Foundation's Hot Pink Party

Remember, yesterday, when we were really happy about how good everyone looked at the Vanity Fair party for the TriBeCa Film Festival? How all the attendees looked so cool and understated and elegant? That was great!

Unfortunately, today’s Red Carpet Rundown brings you the exact goddamn opposite. Last’s night Hot Pink Party, thrown by the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, was a sad state of pinks (predictably), sequins, satin and general promness. More »
