If you haven't heard, the Met is introducing it's newest exhibit, "Punk: From Chaos to Couture." For every fashion obsessed person in the universe, the Met Gala is like Christmas, however, instead of unwrapping presents we are watching the livestream of arrivals of every celebrity, designer and model we all love and hate. Every year I stare at my computer watching the craziness because the best part of this event is that it is really about fashion and who is wearing what. It's the one time of year celebs in the spotlight don't hold back. Rihanna rocked a full piece suit once and the Olsen girls even make an appearance. This year the theme was all about punk. While many seemed to miss the memo, most of my favorites seriously went all out and found their inner punk rocker. SJP was obviously a dream, with a mohawk headpiece and flannel Louboutins, she stole the entire show. Miley wore Marc Jacobs and looked insane, but any true fan knows that she is a serious punk at heart. The pictures I've posted are some of my favorites, from Sienna Miller to Cameron Diaz, each woman found a way to stay true to themselves while sticking to the dress code. As a serious lover of studs and spikes, I really wish I could have afforded a ticket to last night's amazing event.
Gwyneth Paltrow is who I want to be when I grow up. I cannot believe how amazing she looks, all the time. One of my favorite things about her is that she is a major risk taker when it comes to fashion on the red carpet. She strutted her stuff down a major red carpet in the Tom Ford cape gown and basically made fashion history - and every best dressed list. When she's not being glamorous, she looks chic and put together on the street running errands or going to press events. Gwyneth is my style crush because she is the epitome of classic style. We've watched her grow and evolve in Hollywood and she still remains super relevant and an A list celebrity after many years as an actress and in the spotlight. She knows how to steal a scene and wear designer clothing. Gwyneth is awesome in every way possible and I will be crushing on her forever.

The biggest trends at the 85th Annual Academy Awards were pretty obvious. White was a huge color and metallics were seen everywhere. There were so many beautiful ensembles on the red carpet, from Jennifer Lawrence to Zoe Saldana, almost every single leading lady and man wore amazing designs and I have to say I was very impressed.
Above are my absolute favorite looks of the night, after narrowing it down, these seven women looked unbelievable and undoubtedly stole the show. Jennifer Lawrence, in Dior haute couture was not only a big winner but looked amazing. Even when she fell accepting her award, all you could pay attention to was the train on her gown and the awesome positioning of her necklace. Naomi Watts took it to another level in her metallic Armani gown. Her hair couldn't have been styled better and that shoulder cut out was the perfect amount of edge added to her dress. Amanda Seyfried has seriously impressed me through out this entire awards season. We all first met her when she starred in Mean Girls and what a transformation she has gone through! Her custom Alexander McQueen gown had just the right amount of detail to go along with the awesome halter top. A+ Amanda, A+ ! Halle Berry took it to a whole new level of sexiness in Versace. Even with the long sleeves, that plunging neckline and all of those sparkles were stunning. I am usually not a fan of the pixie cut for ladies, but between her and Charlize Theron, how can I not like that style anymore?! Charlize rocked the hell out of the carpet in Christian Dior couture and it's safe to say she was probably my absolute favorite. The second we saw her, heads turned and we all were in shock. Charlize is always flawless, but last night may have been her best look yet. Zoe Saldana had mixed reviews when it came to her dress, in my opinion, I thought it was amazing. This Alexis Mabille Couture gown had beautiful detail around the top, a chic belt around her waist and a pop of color down at the bottom. This dress was an ultimate fashion moment and I give her two thumbs up. Last but not least is Kristen Stewart - this girl was on crutches last night and still looked flawless. Her laid back attitude and that perfect hair went together so well, and I am still dying over her Reem Acra dress. The simplicity of it was my favorite part, it made us all pay attention to her amazing body and gorgeous face. Although she wasn't up for any Oscar's she managed to steal the show, and that's why I love her.
Unfortunately, I was unable to watch the Grammy Awards last night, but of course I caught the red carpet pictures and followed everything via social media. I have always been obsessed with Rihanna and last night just made me love her even more. Her three looks and her hair and makeup: perfection. The Grammy Awards are always so fun when it comes to fashion because the people who are attending all have creative style and you really never know what to expect. Above are my seven favorite looks, three of them being Rihanna, obviously. I love how Adele finally wore something other than a black dress and rocked a seriously fun print. Kelly Rowland looked unbelievable in her dress, turning heads everywhere she went, including mine. Karlie Kloss is always gorgeous but I applaud her for wearing just a beautiful shade of blue.
Overall, the Red Carpet was so fun and the looks were all pretty impressive. However, JLO should have done without the extra leg, I think everyone is over the Angelina Jolie thing by now.
The SAG Awards red carpet was filled with a bunch of my favorite actresses. All of the women who walked the carpet looked beautiful, of course with the exception of a few train wrecks. When I watch the red carpet, I am so judgmental only because I know that celebrities have so many amazing looks to choose from and something as small as the hair do can completely ruin an outfit. The six looks I've chosen as my favorite of the night really captured my attention. These amazing leading ladies had the perfect hair, the right amount of jewelry and enough confidence to make me wish I was them for the night. I am also happy to say that the men of the night were so well dressed as well, Justin Timberlake in Tom Ford was perfection. Read on to see why I chose these six actors as the best dressed of the night!
Jennifer Lawrence: Jennifer was just getting over pneumonia and still managed to look flawless. She wore Dior again and her boobs weren't pointing out. A+ girlfriend.
Lea Michele: She honestly seams so conceited but I can't help but admit that she looked hot. That shocking pink was the perfect color to make sure she stood out on the carpet. Her ombre hair was on point and the fact that she wore no jewelry totally worked for her.
Anne Hathaway: I usually hate short hair cuts on women. Maybe it's because I could never imagine going that short, but either way I'm not a fan. Anne has been ruling the carpet so far this award's season and she looked absolutley beautiful. Her dress was so cool and had just the right amount of sexy to it. I think I almost prefer Anne with short hair and I can't wait to see what she wears next.
Jessica Chastain: I love Jessica and her look at the SAG Awards was such an improvement from the globes. She's such a huge fan of McQueen and the designs always look amazing on her. The red dress along with her red hair, gorgeous.
Naomi Watts: No words, just perfection.
Amanda Seyfried: Okay, what the hell! Her stylist is amazing. I feel like I have never seen such an amazing hair, dress and accessory combination. That chain necklace and that train on her gown, OMG. Amanda was my all time favorite look of the night. I want to be her best friend and I also have a girl crush on her, love love love!
Last night's Golden Globe Awards were full of fashion and celebrities. My favorite time of the year is Award Season, it's like Christmas to a fashionista with all the new trends and custom designer looks debuting on the red carpet. I end up falling in love with new celebrities and my wish list for future dresses gets bigger and bigger. The shoes, the jewels, the hair...it's all so fun to watch and judge. I had two girlfriends over last night and we had so much to say about each and every look that walked on to the carpet. I've rounded up my eight favorite dresses, so read on to see what I have to say about all these amazing looks.
Kate Hudson: OMG. No words. She is always flawless and she's also had two kids. That body, that face and that dress. She nailed it with the gold accents and that dress could not have been more perfect.
Kelly Osbourne: She looked so chic in her Zac Posen cream gown. Her hair color will always be my favorite and that huge smile of hers seriously makes me want to be her BFF.
Jennifer Lawrence: I absolutely loved her dress, but the boob area was a bit bizarre. If she was channeling Madonna, that's cool, but the viewer's just thought she had some bad bra stuffing prior to the show. Aside from the boob issue, she looked so put together and chic as hell.
Nicole Richie: Nicole always knows how to combine boho chic and glamour in the best way. She is so not afraid to stand out and be totally different. She is such a trend setter and I love it.
Claire Danes: She just had a baby, made a joke about leaking and didn't even gross me out. She looked so flawless in her simple red gown. Her body is amazing and her hair was perfect. A+!
Katherine McPhee: My absolute favorite look of the night. Sexy, sophisticated and so chic! She is breaking out into the business in the best way possible. From an American Idol to a fashion queen, I am loving her more and more.
Amy Adams: Her glam hair and her sexy dress really made her look amazing. I'm usually not a fan of what she wears, but her stylist should get a raise after last night!
JLo: Okay Jennifer, we get it, you're perfect. That's all I have to say since her whole look basically speaks for it self....perfection and beyond.
