Make-Up Look – Malta Fashion Awards 2014

Hello guys,

As promised,  today I want to show you the make-up look and what I wore for the Malta Fashion Awards. Unfortunately I do not have a picture of the outfit, but let me describe it. The outfit consisted of a black body con type dress with white and coral flowers and on top a black blazer, being that it was quite a chilly night.

To match the dress, I wore this beautiful gold chain necklace with coral shaped flower and matching earrings, ring and bracelet.  Pastel colours are very much in this summer, so definitely be on the lookout. As for my nails, I used the Pupa Milano gel nail polish in a very similar shade as the accessories.

Now let’s move on to the most important part which is the make-up. Being that it is the most fashionable night in Malta, I had to go all out, so I took my time and tried my best to create something great. I basically was inspired by the outfit itself and used a mixture of corals, gold and black colours.  Apart from applying the eyeshadow on the upper lid I also applied the coral colour under my lower lashes.

I finished the look with some winged liner, mascara and of course some individual fake lashes for more of a dramatic effect.  This look is perfect for this spring and summer to come; it’s very dressy but still vibrant for the hot summer days which are yet to come. Finally I chose a light pink shade for the lips and even for the cheeks.

Golden Globes 2014 – Worst Dressed

Hey guys,

Today must be the only time I posted twice in a day, but I had to cover the Golden Globes  🙂 from the best to the worst dressed. Unfortanetly like every year there are those that try to be different in a good way but unfortunately end up looking very bad. Here is my list of worst dressed at the Awards.

1

Puala Patton , honey what were you thinking with this dress? If it wearent for this huge side ruffle, it wouldn’t have been so bad. It’s like the designer didn’t want to waste the extra fabric and added it to the dress.  Such a pity, she is such a beautiful actress.

A award winning Actress shouldn’t be wearing such a cheap looking dress. It looks like a prom dress rather than something you would wear for the Golden Globes. The fabric looks a little bit cheap and the colors totally clash for me. I’m sorry Sandra Bullock but it’s just wrong.

Julia Roberts wears this lovely Dolce and Gabbana  strapless dress then wears with this white hideous blouse underneath. It just doesn’t make any sense are you going to work as a waitress or to the Golden globes? Without the blouse she would have looked great such a pity.

Even-though Heidi Klum looks good in everything,I did expert more from a Super model, this marches gown doesn’t give her any justice. The white flowers on a black dress, simply doesn’t do it for me however if Heidi wore a more dainty jewelry and maybe put her hair up in a bun, she would have looked more elegant because it is definitely not an ugly dress.

Not quite right: Heidi Klum's black and white floral Marchesa gown exuded romance, but her black choker necklace and exaggerated cleavage took away from the dress's charm

5

Many love this dress/outfit but seriously what is there to like?. It like she wasn’t sure if to wear a dress or a suit, so she combined both. Hone decide what you want don’t go for both at the same time. The front is simply boring, the back is so and so but i’m sorry trousers are not for the Golden Globes. Next time decide what you want please, this is simply confusing.

Is it a dress? Emma Watson's open back Dior ensemble, which looked like a gown from the front but revealed black pants at the back, resembled a glorified hospital gownIs it a dress?

I seriously want to give Jennifer Lawrence some fashion tips, especially when it comes to gowns. Lawrence has this beautiful slim curvy body that would look gorgeous in some figure hugging dresses but she does it wrong all the time. The only time I saw her in a beautiful gown was at the Oscars. This Dior dress looks like a white blanket with black belts around the waist and hips, I might be rough but it’s the truth.  It’s such a pity to see her in there boring dresses, she needs a bit of help.

Awkward details: Jennifer Lawrence resembled Little Bo Peep in her poufy white Dior gownAwkward details: Jennifer Lawrence resembled Little Bo Peep in her poufy white Dior gown, which was cinched awkwardly at the waist and below the hips with stark black straps

Lena Dunham from Girls, wore this beautiful Zac Posen dress, mind you it is beautiful but not on her. Lesson number 1 if you are very pale, don’t wear a long yellow dress, seriously what where you thinking? Lesson number 2 this shape of dress is not good for you. Face it with her body this is not the style of dress to go for, it has be more flowing, or else you look like your wearing a size to small.

Not so mellow yellow: Lena Dunham's canary yellow Zac Posen strapless gown was not very flattering for her skin tone and clashed with her red lipstick

8

Zoe Saldana, where did you find this dress? if you bought this dress, they seriously robbed you, you should give it back. Saldana is such a beautiful woman and this dress doesn’t give her any justice. It’s like the designer has 3 dresses and stitched them into one dress. I will be blunt it is a really ugly dress, all those embellished flowers and see-through fabric at the end, it make me stomach turn.

Kaley Cuoco what where you thinking honey? you are so beautiful and have a beautiful body why did you wear my grandma’s bedspread? Apart from that, the color of the dress is very similar to your skin. Never wear anything that is is very close to your skin, it doesn’t look good, either people will think your naked or just boring.

That is all when it comes to the Golden Globes, it was so much fun writing my opinion about these dresses. I hope you enjoyed reading, let me know what you think 🙂

Golden Globes 2014 – Best Dressed

I am not a fashion expert but I do love fashion. When I was little I used to love watching the catwalks and design my own clothes on paper. So when such a fashionable yet important event like the Golden Globes occurs, I love to look at the beautiful detailed dresses designers make.

1

My number one favorite has to be Cate Blanchet in this beautiful black laced Armani gown. This gown look exceptionally beautiful on her porcelain skin, even the back is simply divine.  Cate Blanchet is a beautiful, elegant and talented woman and she showed it all in this beautiful dress.

My second favorite has to be Kate Backinsale in a Zuhair Murad dress.  The shape of the dress is simply gorgeous on her fabulous body, and the detail and design of this dress is to die for.

Pure sophistication: Kate Beckinsale showed off her slim frame in a Zuhair Murad fishtail gown and loose updoPure sophistication: Kate Beckinsale showed off her slim frame in a Zuhair Murad fishtail gown and loose updo

Sofia Vergara has to be my third choice for sure, she wore this beautiful black dress by Zac Posen and accesorised it with a chunky turquoise necklace. I love the shape of this dress, it hugs her curvaceous body pretty well, simply gorgeous.

Yes another black dress, does that say anything about me ? hehe. However you have to admit Emma Roberts look great in this dress. I love the beautiful neckline of the dress and it fits her to perfection.

Lupita Nyong’o sported a sleeveless red Ralph Lauren gown, complete with cape detail. At first I didn’t know if I hated of loved this dress because of the cape, but I have to admit it looks exceptionally beautiful on her lovely chocolate skin.

I have to give it to Hellen Mirren, not only she looks ravishing in this embroidered Jenny Packham emerald gown. She looks stunning and amazing for her agem I’ll be more than happy to look like that at her at her age.

Lily Rabe is a very talented actress in American Horror story but being that she isn’t an A list actress, there wasn’t a particular emphases on her dress but I simple love it and it deserves a good review.  She wore a beautiful brown dress with graphic black overlay and it look great with her blonde complexion.

Big black dresses: Jacqueline Bisset wore off-the-shoulder black and gold, while Monica Potter sported a gold top and black skirt, Allison Williams wore black and white  and Lily Rabe wore a brown dress with black overlay

Below are some more pretty dresses that I liked but didn’t impress me much.

A rainbow of dresses: Sandra Bullock Reese Witherspoon, Amy Adams and Amber Heard were the leading brights on the red carpet at the Golden Globes Awards at the Beverly Hilton on Sunday nightA rainbow of dresses: Taylor Swift, Amy Adams, Reese Witherspoon, Amber Heard were the leading brights on the red carpet at the Golden Globes Awards at the Beverly Hilton on Sunday nightAll white on the night: Margot Robbie flashed the flesh in a plunging white gown split to the thigh with beaded detail on the waist and shoulderEmbellished frocks: Julianna Margulies wore a black gown with gold leaf design while Melissa McCarthySilver lining: Mila Kunis was the epitome of glamour in her sequinned Gucci gown with her brown locks pulled up into an updoHot metal: Naomi Watts sported a slinky Tom Ford champagne gown with a chunky gold neck detailClassy in crimson: Jessica Lange sported a draped velvet number while Julie Delpy looked resplendent in scarlet 680

These are my favorite dresses from the Golden Globes, what were your favorites? let me know by commenting own below 🙂

BRITS 2013 – The best and the Worst

Hi guys :),

So today I was looking that the photos of the Brits awards and I couldn’t help and say something about what celebrities seem to be wearing lately which isn’t a lot. Seriously what is the deal with everyone showing a lot of skin and different sides of your boobs. It is not flattering at all and it makes them look even more trashy.  If you are a celebrity I imagine you have a lot of money, so they can afford a dress with a little more fabric I suppose.

First of with Jessie J (VERSACE): I think the dress overall is nice and she looks more feminine than ever, but she didn’t need to show her entire chest. If it was a bit covered with some lace fabric to cover her breast, it would still look sexy but at least not trashy.

Making quite an entrance: She shunned her usual style of PVC catsuits and quirky fashion to doll herself up in the floorlength frock, which also flashed a bit of leg

Then it is Rita Ora (ULYANA SERGEENKO- Seriously what ere you thinking ? I don’t mind all the back showing this much (even though it is a bit too muchh) but is definitely not finished. I think the designer is still working on it because you can still see the seams and everything. It is such a mess.

Not her usual style: Rita Ora was hoping for an award but didn't win the trophy for best dressed in her salmon backless Ulyana Sergeenko gown

Now some other worst dresses I have seen :

Lana del Ray – Didn’t she get the memo? I don’t mind her causal dress but it is not right for  an Award night.

Could have made more effort! Lana Del Rey looked more suited for a daytime event than the red carpet in her Chanel shirt dress

Gemma Arterton – This dress is just plain ugly and it makes her look very old

Dividing critics: Gemma Arteron's Jonathan Saunders dress was met by a mixed response

Now my Favorite is Taylor’s Swift (ELI SAAB) – The cut is very nice and I like the sheer pannelling that reveal a bit of her legs. She looks sexy but still not overdoing it with the skin.

Lady in black: Swift also went for a daring number with her high cut sheer panels showing off her legs as she posed up for the cameras,

Berenice Marlohe – I also love this metallic dress Berenice wore. What I love is the cut and shape of the dress which highlights the beautiful curvy body she has. I am not a fan of metallic colors on dresses but the cut is so divine that I am not bothered by the color.

Well she is a Bond girl: Berenice Marlohe went for all over metallic in a floorlength foil type silver dress which showed off her ample assets

Aluna Francis – I love the sheer sequin dress. Another metallic hit

Stunning: Aluna Francis was one of the big hits of the night in her sheer sequin gown, while Bat For Lashes' Natasha Khan also showed off her style in her lavish ensemble

So I thought I share with you my opinions about the best and worst dressed of the brit awards. I believe anyone can look beautiful and sexy without the need to show a little too much. No man want’s to uncover a present when they already know what’s in it, you loose part of the excitement.

That’s all from me, keep posted for more 🙂
