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.

StyleWatch: On the Red Carpet

Festivals, premiers and award shows, oh my!! The ladies gave us all sorts of inspiration for our next rooftop event with their red-carpet ensembles last week. Scroll for my faves!


Laura Govan slayed this hard-to-pull-off silk jumpsuit at Russell Simmons’s All Def Comedy Jam. Sleek hair, gold sandals and minimal accessories completed the look.


Tatiana Ali paired this summer’s soft pant trend with a fitted blazer and a pop of color in her crop top and heels at the New York premiere of Comeback Dad. I just copped a pair from NY & Co and I can’t wait to see how many fun ways I can wear them!


I have no idea what red carpet this is. I just love Dascha Polanco.


And rounding out the crop of red-carpet stunners is Adrienne Bailon in a Costello Couture frock at the BET Awards! Love, love love the silhouette!

Let Award Season Begin!

January starts off awards season, and I for one can’t wait for the fun! The glitter, glamour and pageantry were on full-force at last night’s People’s Choice Awards. While it may be an appetizer in awards-season fashion, the girls brought their A-game.

My favorite look of the night hands-down wasn’t even up for an award! Rocsi, er…’rocked’ her look, bringing a much-needed punch of color to an otherwise neutral-filled evening. While I believe she’d have benefitted better from a black or nude sandal, her hair and makeup worked beautifully with the fun, flirty tone of her dress.

Jessica Alba worked the winter white in her Jason Wu frock. Casadei pumps and a subtle smoky eye rounded out the look. While I usually am a bit disappointed with her far too ‘safe’ fashion choices for her knockout frame, I loved this combo!

While Naya Rivera rarely makes a misstep on the red carpet, I’m not totally loving her Michael Kors ensemble. It is just a one-two combo of too much neutral between the dress, hair and makeup. I would have liked to see that dress in a bolder color like blue, and more color around the eye area to balance all that hair. And, while her Stuart Weitzman sandals are to die for, I’d have loved her look more if she traded shoes with Rocsi!

While this wasn’t a pull-out-all-the-stops kind of night, I loved how appropriately light and elegant the looks were. What were your favorite looks of the evening?
