Red Carpet Rundown: MTV Movie Awards & CFDA Fashion Awards

Monday, June 6, 2011

Some things never fail to spark excitement for me — sunshine, catching a Britney song on the radio/in a bar/anywhere in life and red carpet fashion. I've actually blown off plans so that I could sit at home and watch the Oscars red carpet live. (I guess my secret is out now. I'm okay with it.)

It is always a thrill to see what the stars bring for red carpet events. Sometimes it's good and brings on swoons, sometimes it's cringe-worthy bad and sometimes, it's really, really, really ugly.

In the past couple of days, we had two great red carpet opportunities, with the 2011 MTV Movie Awards on Sunday and the Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards tonight. After flipping through all of the photos, I compiled my top 5 favorite looks:

Ashley Olsen in The Row & Manolo Blahnik & 
Mary-Kate Olsen in Chanel, The Row & Louis Vuitton
Is it considered cheating to count two "It" Girls as one? I can't choose! These ladies have come such a long way, and truly must be credited for establishing and owning their signature styles. Ashley has been giving me a very Carrie Bradshaw vibe these days (which I love), and Mary-Kate clearly knows that a Chanel jacket is always a winner.

Emma Stone in Bottega Veneta
I love Emma Stone, I love that she dyed her hair red again and I love this ensemble on her. It's charming, flattering and she gets bonus points for those copper red pumps.

Miranda Kerr in Michael Kors
This woman recently had a baby. MIND BLOWN. Really though, this black, cut-out gown is simply ravishing.

Leighton Meester in Balmain
This one was a no-brainer: Leighton looks beautiful, and it's BALMAIN. (It should be noted early on that I am a huge, huge fan of Balmain. One day, I hope to have an entire wardrobe of studded jackets and dresses.)

Hana Soukupová in Marchesa
Marchesa also tops my list of favorite designers, and immediately upon seeing Hana in this gown from the Spring 2011 ready-to-wear collection, I nearly started a solo applause. The asymmetrical lines, the ruffle details...I'm in love.
