The Metropolitan Museum of Art threw its annual Costume Institute Gala last night in New York, and we were there…err, in the same city on non-Met Ball business. But – silver lining! – we’re getting closer and closer every year to our dream of one day attending. We’d even happily accept the role of fly on the wall – are you hearing this Anna?
In any case, Met Ball 2014, ‘Charles James: Beyond Fashion’, happened last night, and it was the year’s most glamourous red carpet to date. All the biggest, boldest names in Hollywood were there, wearing the biggest, boldest names in the fashion industry: Blake Lively in Gucci Premiere, Amy Adams in Oscar de la Renta, Beyonce in Givenchy Couture. Our best dressed list is packed with star power and sartorial perfection.
Side note: Hell hath officially frozen over. We once vowed never to post about one Kim Kardashian on this here site, but she won us over last night with a gorgeous midnight blue Lanvin gown and a Kanye West at her side. Vow or no vow, we give credit where credit is due, and Kim killed it this time. Now, back to our regular, generally Kim K.-free programming.

Claire Danes in Armani Privé Fall 2013
The 65th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards were held in Los Angeles last night, and though we sadly missed all 18 hours of televised red carpet and awards show coverage due to some poor travel planning on our part, we wouldn’t dare shirk our duties when it comes to critiquing the myriad of fabulous (and not so fabulous) looks of our favourite small screen actresses.
From the ethereal, like Outstanding Actress in a Drama winner Claire Danes (woohoo Homeland!) in Armani Privé and Kerry Washington in Marchesa, to the va-va-voom, including Sofia Vergara in Vera Wang and Rose Byrne in Calvin Klein Collection, the Emmys red carpet certainly delivered.
The ladies of Mad Men in particular definitely brought their A games, with January Jones, Jessica Pare and Elisabeth Moss all landing in our top 10. Alyson Hannigan in purple Marchesa, Kate Mara in a white J. Mendel and Michelle Dockery in two-toned Prada rounded out our best dressed list.
Did they make yours too?

Anne Hathaway in Armani Prive at 2011 Golden Globe Awards
It’s official, ladies and gents! Sunday marks the beginning of this year’s awards season in Hollywood, and we’re excitedly counting down the days until the Tina Fey and Amy Poehler-hosted Golden Globes. After that, it’s going to be a non-stop red carpet glam fest as our favourite stars attend the Globes, the SAGs and finally the Oscars.
This year’s batch of nominees include leading ladies who not only have serious acting chops, but impeccable style to match (or, at least, the most talented stylists on their payrolls). We’ve rounded up the 10 actresses we’re most excited to see on the awards show red carpets this season, along with our favourite look of theirs to date.
From stars of the silver screen like Anne Hathaway and Jennifer Lawrence to those who’ve graced our televisions this past year like Claire Danes and Julianne Moore, we can’t wait to cover their sartorial choices over the next couple of months. Valentino, Dior, Elie Saab…gorgeous gowns are coming to a glamourous red carpet near you. Stay tuned!
