The Most Glamourous Night on Television- Academy Awards 2012

Sleeper hit and silent film ‘The Artist’ was the big winner last night,  winning  5 Academy Awards including Best Picture and Best Actor. But like millions of other viewers I was most excited  to see what the stars were wearing on Oscars night.  My favorites this year were:

Angelina Jolie in Versace

No Oops But She Did It Again!

Rihanna was best dressed at this year’s Grammy Awards wearing a simple black dress with a long side slit, platinum blonde hair and gold accessories. Recently at a party for Stella McCartney’s new collection during London Fashion Week she repeated the formula to a winning look with a similar emerald green dress.

Accessorized!

New York Fashion Week is wrapping up and like every year the week was full of eclectic style on and off the runway.  A fashion forward crowd hit the sidewalks in bold statement pieces to get noticed. Here are a few women whose accessories are worthy of applause:

Mixing Spring Dresses & Winter Sweaters- NY Fashion Week Fall 2012

Dresses aren’t only for elementary school pictures, proms and weddings anymore. The frock has seen somewhat of a revival in the last few years and more women wear dresses almost as a uniform. Dresses are a yearlong staple because they are simple!  No need to match the perfect blouse to pants…with one piece your dressed in a snap.

And you don’t need to wear a sweater dress if it’s fall or winter.  If spring is gone but you still want to wear your floral chiffon dress, wear a thick pair of tights and layer with a warm sweater. A few designers at this year’s fashion week also got the memo:
