President Obama hosted his second state dinner on Wednesday, this one honoring the visiting president of Mexico, President Felipe Caldron, and his wife Margarita Zavala.
The first lady was stunning, as usual, in a one-shoulder azure blue gown by Peter Soronen. And the shoes…did you see the shoes? Absolutely gorgeous!
Last night, history was made on the Miss USA stage. Miss Michigan Rima Fakih became the first Arab-American to be crowned Miss USA 2010.
She was gorgeous and absolutely flawless in every way, until the evening gown portion that is. Rima stumbled on stage as she got caught in the train of her gown. Nevertheless, judges saw past the mistake and crowned her Miss USA 2010!
The red carpet at the Costume Institute Gala was full of Halson, Marchesa and Lanvin. The gown that stole the show, and literally lit up the night, was a design by none of the fore-mentioned. Katy Perry arrived in an LED (light emitting diode) laced CuteCircuit gown. CuteCircuit’s creative director Francesca Rosealla, with the help of Katy, chose the fabrics, the cut, and even the design of the multi-colored lights.
“Fashion can be a little stuffy, so I wanted to lighten up,” the singer said of her ensemble.
Later this month, CuteCircuit plans to launch a ready-to-wear line, including a minidress that displays a variety of colors and graphics cued by the wearer’s movements.
Rest easy America, Jess isn’t running for office. Turns out, she along with other Hollywood hotties, arrived at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue for the annual Correspondents Dinner. Faces like Kim Kardashian, teen heartthrob Justin Beiber, The Jonas Brothers, Jessica Alba and husband Cash Warren, Michelle Pfieffer and Steven Spielberg walked the red carpet just before the event.
Pics from the Correspondent’s Dinner looked more like they were taken from a night at the Oscars. In recent years, the dinner has morphed into somewhat of a prom for stars and socialites disguised as political buffs.
The 45th annual Academy of Country Music Awards aired Sunday night. The red carpet in Las Vegas lit up with celebs like Nicole Kidman, Faith Hill and Jewel. Some of the most noteworthy fashions were designed by Pamella Roland and worn by Hillary Scott (Lady Antebellum) in hot pink and Miranda Lambert in a stunning sequined Sapphire. Along with kudos for fashion, both ladies racked up awards at the ACM’s.
Not even the luck of the Las Vegas Strip could help country music’s golden girl, Taylor Swift. Swift walked away from the ACM’s empty-handed. She was, however, dressed beautifully in a backless, embroidered, lavender Marchesa gown. Nicole Kidman, wife of Australian cowboy Keith Urban, donned a tuxedo-style cocktail; not her typically glamorous red carpet attire.
Taking a page from Avril Lavine’s style book, prom goers opt for punk-rock fashions this year! Flirty flowers and metallic tulle accents paired with a denim jacket equals the fun look shown above. The mix of these elements, blending preppy with punk, produces a style that is very different yet girly enough for prom.
Taking the formalities down a notch is key to any punk style. The addition of casual, everyday jackets in denim or leather will do the trick. The hair is also important, a ‘do that reflects that reflects your attire is a must. The spiky cut shown here is a perfect example. The entire ensemble screams ROCK STAR!

We’ve all seen trashy prom dresses, but an Iowa teen will actually wear trash as a prom dress. Elizabeth Rasmunson fashioned a prom gown out of Wrigley’s “5 Gum” bubble gum wrappers. She and her boyfriend Jordan Weaver began collecting the blue and white wrappers in August. The pair even had enough to make a matching vest for Jordan!
In a troubled economy, with a record-setting unemployment rate, a fancy prom gown may be the last thing on your list. Seventeen Magazine showcased some of the season’s hottest looks, with a reasonable price tag, on “LIVE! With Regis and Kelly” this morning.
Models wore the top five trends for Prom 2010, all retailing under $200! Ombre-shaded gowns, gold tones and romantic/Victorian styles lead the way. The addition of rosettes to bodices or hemlines, along with tiered ruffles capture the Victorian period in a simply romantic way!
Perhaps the biggest style trend to look for is the one-shoulder gown. On a long gown or short, sequined or simple, one shoulder elegance is irresistible.
