StyleWatch: SAG Style!

The “little” awards show that could brought some big style statements! Nestled between the Globes and the Oscars, the SAG awards often comes and goes with little fanfare but that did not stop the ladies from giving us a burst of color on the red carpet. Check out my favorites below!




Camila Alves rarely disappoints and this red carpet was no different. Ms. McConaughey wowed with this sweetheart design in the evening’s popular jewel tone. I am loving her hair as of late, the highlights really compliment her skin and she’s been hitting it out of the park with complimentary makeup looks!


BLF fave Dascha Polanco (no, really, she is the highest searched name on this site!) absolutely wowed in white lace. Opting for a high neckline and long sleeves, Polanco let her back do the talking in what would normally be a high-risk choice. Lace has not fared well on the red carpet but pair it with Dascha’s curves and you can never lose! And speaking of winning, Orange is The New Black continues its awards tear taking home the awards for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series (the incomparable Uzo Aduba) and Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series. Shut it down ladies!


And who is once again shutting down the red carpet? None other than Lupita Nyong’o in Elie Saab! Really, we should all just go home. This look is without flaw.

Out and About; BLF at Noir et Blanc Fall Trunk Show Event Featuring Anni Kuan!

Signature Coat, Anni Kuan

Fashion Week has been a whirlwind of events, so I was happy to close out this season’s offerings by visiting one of my favorite shops, Noir et Blanc! This evening’s festivities were a showcase of designer Anni Kuan.

Perhaps best known for being First Lady of New York Chirlane McCray’s go to choice for high-profile events, Anni displayed her Fall/Winter 2014 Collection at the chic boutique. Selections included her signature coat (shown above) and dress collections, as well as new additions. Besides the coat (which also has quilted lining to take you from Fall to Winter) one of my favorite pieces was a shirt-dress made from vegan suede that felt like butter and draped perfectly!

Guests of the event were treated to wine, cheese and fruit to sweeten their shopping experience, while NEB owner Deborah Koenigsberger was on hand to assist shoppers in personalizing their dress choices with the boutique’s many accessory offerings.
