I spent a good chunk of Monday night stalking everything related to the Met Gala on Instagram(seriously, what else would you do on a Monday night?). Well, obviously that meant that I would share with you 20 (YES, that’s the MOST I’ve ever blogged about) of my favourite looks last night at the Met!
Selena Gomez & The Weeknd
This clearly ain’t the same old love she’s used to.
The New Classic.
Mindy Lahiri would be crying tears of joy.
Gawjus times a billion.
She ain’t Joey Potter no more.
Pretty Woman 2.0
Tom Brady & Gisele Bundchen
Literally, fashion’s royalty.
So upscale Coachella
Business casual never looked this good!
I love this shade of purple. The makeup is also perfect.
A couple of weeks ago, I had the pleasure of attending International Fashion Encounter’s Fashion Show/SuperModel Canada Search contest (thanks Toronto Fashion Academy for hooking it up) and I figured why not share with you all the wisdom I’ve gained about fashion shows! So without further adieu here are some tips on what you should wear at a fashion show:
Wear your the uncomfortable fashionable pair of shoes you own: Listen, you’re going to be sitting for 85% of the night, so might as well make use of THAT pair of heels you have a love/hate relationship with. Also, you don’t have to wear heels, you can wear boots, flats, sandals etc. Just don’t wear sneakers unless they’re like blinged out Yeezys, speaking of which…has Kanye put out blinged out Yeezys yet?
Use a bold pop of colour so you stick out: Honestly, this can be the colour of your outfit, shoes, accessories and/or makeup. Just make sure it’s bold enough to stand out! I wore a bold magenta lip to offset my all black look (clearly I don’t have a soul). Also, I wore a tarnished gold jewelry to match the gold detailing on my ankle boots (see details matter because other fashionistas at this thing are doing it…and probably judging…okay maybe not…but you catch my drift).
Carry the most expensive or expensive looking purse you own:I’m not telling you to go buy that Louis Vuitton AM you’ve been craving (or maybe I am) but this is the perfect time to whip out that purse you have hidden in its dust bag because you don’t want to ruin it (I carried my Marc Jacobs Crossbody). Or if you really want to be bold, you can carry that all-glitter clutch you bought because why not (just me?).
Wear loads of blingy jewelry: Okay, maybe not loads but enough so you’ve frosted yourself (if you know what I’m referencing, tweet me…shameless promo). You want to be classy and subtle yet fashionable. One of the ladies from the Real Housewives of Toronto attended the show and she had probably one of the most beautiful blinged chokers I’ve ever seen!
Be Unique..so…add your personality to your whole look: You don’t want to look like everyone else because you are NOT everyone else. You are you and make sure everyone around you is aware of all your awesomeness. One of the attendees wore a light up pocket square as a part of his all dark pant/suit. Can you say amazing?! There was also someone in all silver..and when I say all silver..he painted his face and dyed his hair silver…SLAY.
You don’t need to go ALL out, this isn’t Prom: Okay, no one needs to see excessive body parts or over the top gowns…this is a CLASSY affair so keep it simple and keep it classy! Dress like you’re going to be photographed for a profile picture that’s going to be your picture for your whole life (does that even make sense? if it doesn’t I’m sorry..no I’m not. whatever).
Go through your closet before you purchase anything for your #OOTN…: Honestly, majority of the reason why I attend any event that requires me to put in copious amounts of efforts is because of Instagram (what has my life come to). Yes, you want to look spiffy…but NO, you do not need to spend a ton. Last time I went to this very fashion show, I dug out my closet and found a dress I hadn’t worn with the tag still on it. I basically dressed it up to make it fashion worthy (cuz you know tip #5).
…and if you do want to purchase an item for your #OOTN, look for sales: This year I did purchase a dress for this particular show but believe me, I’m a bargain hunter and was able to find my outfit for 65% of its original price (YUS). So if you do need to buy something…go shopping for sales…FYI: obvs this is not a last-minute thing.
Make sure you have a phone charger handy: You’re going to be taking loads of pictures and updating your social media account all night long (again, what has my life really come to?) or you need an UBER…so make sure you’ve got a portable phone charger ready!
Eat before you go or have snacks handy: Fashion shows DO not serve food…because…obviously no one wants to promote eating (okay I’m not throwing shade I promise but it’s probz because no one wants to smear their makeup with food…although I wouldn’t care if they serve me McNuggets). Make sure you eat before hand or make a mickydees run after because these shows go on for a while and you will get hungry. Also, don’t drink on an empty stomach…not the prettiest thing AND make sure you bring cash for the bar.
But most of all, HAVE LOADS OF FUN! I truly have a blast each time I go to IFE’s shows. They’re fun, exciting and you really get a taste of what the fashion world in Toronto is like!
Head to Instagram to see what I wore! Abril Cereva designed the dress on the model above and the picture is courtesy of Azmat’s Photography!
I’ve decided that I am now going to post everything Bollywood related on Thursdays and to kickstart that decision, I’m bringing you 10 of my favourite looks Anushka Sharma has rocked! If you don’t know who Anushka Sharma is, then just google (obvz). Not only is she a phenomenal actress in Bollywood, but she is also one of the few stylish ones out there. Without further adieu, here are my favourite looks Anushka has rocked:
Uhm, everything about this outfit is GOALZ. 🔥🔥🔥🔥
The style and colour of this saree is so gorgeous! Also, the big jhumka earrings (google the meaning) are pure perfection!
A is killing the ripped jeans trend in this look. The bright yellow blouse and the beige shoes classify this look (lolz).
I’m a sucker for celebs wearing super unique outfits and this one is so chic!
Let Anushka show you how you exactly can nail the festival-boho-chic look.
The colour scheme, the shoes and the print on the skirt is beautiful!
Girl, can I look exactly like this when I wear jeans and a plain shirt? Killing the casual game!🔥
Everyone needs an all black outfit and Anushka looks radiant in this one!
Currently searching online for this exact lehenga….LOVE everything about it.
The colour combination of this outfit is gorgeous and I’m in love with those shoes!
Hello Dolls! Hope you’re having an awesome day despite all the crazy drama going on in the world. It’s Monday and I know I usually do my motivational Monday post but it’s award season! Last night, the Screen Actor’s Guild awards took place and I have to say almost every single one, men and women, were dressed in their best. Below you will find my favourite looks from last night!
Emily BluntInsert allllll the heart emojis right here. Emily Blunt looked stunning last night in this boho chic look. I mean this is how you make Coachella look couture!
Sofia VergaraThis is how you rock a ballerina inspired look at the SAG awards or any red carpet for that matter. The shoes are perfect. The hair is perfect. The makeup is perfect. Everything is perf.
I’m a HUGE OTH fan (shout outs to everyone who knows what I’m talking about). So when I see a hint of Brooke in Sophia’s OOTN, I literally die! Not only do I love the fact that it’s asymmetrical and hot pink but she had pink eye shadow to match! Gorgeous.
Kerry WashingtonThere is nothing scandalous about this amazing outfit Kerry is rocking (see what I did). Okay. Anyways, the embellishments are beautiful and I love that it’s off the shoulder. Also, does her makeup ever look bad?!
Taraji P. HensonI bae-sically want to be in this outfit forever. Well, if I looked like her. The colour, the cut, the embellishment, the hair, the makeup, the…everything is gorgeous from head to toe. Also, LOVE the bow.
Hello Dolls! Hope you’re having a swell day! If you didn’t check out my previous post, then you can do so by clicking here. As always, make sure you follow me on all my social media accounts, listed on the top bar of this page. Today’s post is all about hottie Ryan Reynolds’ effortless style. It’s hard for some men to experiment with different kinds of style but Ryan shows them all how it’s done. Seriously, this man can style sweats in the most fashionable way possible. He also cleans up really well at formal events, making him the ultimate style bae of my dreams (if he wasn’t married to Blake, I’d def try to steal him…lolz). Anyways, I’ll stop boring you with my obsessive comments about Ryan and show you 5 of my favourite looks he’s worn!
Ryan’s all about that hot lumberjack Canadian swag here, obvi cuz he’s Canadian. Duh. (kay I’ll stop)
Remember how I said he cleans up well? This is pure proof of that. Not only does he break all norms by wearing a tan coloured suit here, but he looks adorbs doing so 😍
Can all men around me dress like this? Mr. Reynolds makes this layered outfit look absolutely flawless.
My heart flutters by just looking at this picture. He’s hot yes, but his outfit just enhances his hotness more. Plus, I love men in glasses. 😍
3 things I love about this: Burger King, buttoned cardigan and tan pants. Perfect & the way to my heart.
Hello Dolls! Hope you’re well today! Did you watch the People’s Choice Awards last night? I surely did. And you know what that means right? I’m going to tell you all about my favourite looks from the red carpet. BUT before I do that, make sure you check out my previous post by clicking right here and AS ALWAYS, follow me on the socials (links are ALL over the page!).
GIVE ME THOSE SHOES. Okay, you know I’m really excited about a red carpet look when I’m typing all in caps. I still cannot believe Blake had a baby a few months ago and she looks THIS amazing! LOVE the sparkly fringe.
