All The BET Awards Red Carpet Looks We Can't Get Over

When award season graces us with its presence, we can’t help but flock towards our televisions to take stock of every red carpet we can get access to. While the nominations and winners play a key role in the success of an award show, we have our own category of winners. Obviously, we’re talking about the red carpet. The hours of prep that go into red carpet appearances don’t go unnoticed. From the couture gowns (good and bad), to the many whispers of who will show up (and with who), to the “Did...

Every Oscars Red Carpet Look That Made Us Say “Yes”

To say 2018's award season has felt different than past years' ceremonies puts it lightly. While, yes, there’s so much incredible work to celebrate from tonight’s nominees, much like every other Hollywood event since the beginning of the year, all attention was fixed on the red carpet to not only see some daring, beautiful, and thoughtful fashion (which we found in spades), but to watch as major stars used the glamorous opportunity to send messages and show support for causes outside of tonight’...

30 Oscars Looks That Capped Off A Season Of Red Carpet Activism

By the time the Oscars rolls around, the red carpet can feel a bit like Groundhog Day. It's the same awkward questions about how nervous stars are, the same dozen fashion labels name-dropped, and the same versions of the same blush-hued princess dress. But things have been different this year.It started with the #TimesUp blackout during January's Golden Globes, where a missive to wear all black to protest gender disparity resulted not only in some uniquely stunning looks — from Tracee Ellis Ros...

The Two Words Nina Dobrev Uses To Describe Her Red Carpet Style

After years on the award-show circuit, Nina Dobrev has the whole red carpet thing down. Be it the Emmys, the after parties, or even the Met Gala, the actress one-ups herself with every passing appearance. But how would she characterize her step-and-repeat approach? For that, we went straight to the source."Reliant…on my stylist," Dobrev told Refinery29 last weekend, at Reebok's Classics Crib during Coachella Weekend 2. She was half joking, and half describing, in a somewhat refreshing way, the ...

An Extensive Photo History Of The Trumps At The Met Gala

Well, it's that time of year again. The first Monday of May is in just a few days, so we've been pretty busy looking back at some highlights from the Met Gala. But there's a question that's been on our minds about the annual spectacle since January: Will the Trump family attend this year? Page Six let us know that Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump are "too busy" to make it, which (we guess) makes sense, and the President and FLOTUS will not be going either. So, we're looking back at all of their r...

What We're Expecting On The 2017 Oscars Red Carpet, Based On These Celebs' #TBT Looks

The Oscars definitely isn't the last award show of the year. (It is only February, mind you.) But it does close the chapter on what's considered red-carpet season, with celebrities and stylists flocking to L.A., glitzed to the hilt in fresh-off-the-runway gowns for the occasion. Those gilded statuettes certainly are prestigious, yet the Academy Awards aren't historically a breeding ground for boundary-pushing fashion — save, of course, for Björk's infamous swan dress. The event is consistently ...

Reem Acra designer is proud of dressing Melania Trump

For months, designers like Tom Ford and Marc Jacobs have vowed they’d never let their frocks grace Melania Trump (at east not for free — FLOTUS is an avid Net-A-Porter shopper). But Reem Acra didn’t play politics when it came to designing Melania’s stunning gold- embroidered inauguration gown. “I cannot tell you what this does...

Are Designers Ignoring Melania? Let's Keep Tabs

Originally published on January 26, 2017.If there’s one tradition that hasn’t been uprooted in this Trump presidency, it’s the one surrounding the First Lady’s wardrobe. Most first ladies have historically laid low when it came to broadcasting strong political views, opting for subtle cues, instead. Michelle Obama was the primo example of that. We’ve written before about the innumerable ways that she used her clothing to communicate values, like inclusivity, globalism, and supporting small busi...

We Bet You Missed This Edgy Detail of Taraji P. Henson's Dainty SAG Look

We were gushing over Taraji P. Henson and her impeccable style as soon as we saw her step onto the SAG Awards red carpet. Her perfect eyebrows were flawlessly defined into those trademark high arches, she coordinated her lips and lids with her delicate mauve Reem Acra gown, and she coiffed her strands into a funky asymmetrical bob. But it wasn't until we saw Taraji give that empowering acceptance speech on behalf of the Hidden Figures cast that we saw the real star of her beauty look: an edgy un...

Modern Texas wedding at Prospect House: Sarah + Drew

A sunny, cheerful bunch of blooms is a pretty good way to start off the week, don’t you think?

Breaking: Jennifer Lopez Wore a Regular $1 Hair Tie on the Red Carpet Because She Can

At the 2017 People's Choice Awards, Jennifer Lopez paired her arrestingly gorgeous Reem Acra gown with a regular plebeian hair tie. Yes, the kind of hair tie that you usually have 18 of or, more likely, none at all when you need one the most. Following her appearance at the award show, where she took home the award for favorite TV crime drama actress, Lipstick.com noticed and reveled in Jennifer's low-key hair tie. While the fullness and beauty of her ponytail are certainly worth noting, the bas...

At Baby2Baby Gala, Florals & Frilly Black Make A Political Statement

On Saturday, Hollywood women got all dolled up for a night out at the Baby2Baby Gala, putting aside their sadness over the election results in the name of helping underprivileged families. Or did they? Attendees Jessica Alba, Camila Alves, and Camilla Belle were dressed in all-black gowns that kind of made us wonder if they were in mourning.We could also read into the floral, ultra-feminine looks on the likes of Jenna Dewan Tatum, Miranda Kerr, and Rachel Bilson.
