  • Paris Hilton Wears Mac Duggal In Her New Video Come Alive!

    Paris Hilton's newest single "Come Alive" finally came out on July 15, 2014, and we're loving it! The song is so much fun, and the video is so whimsical, with Paris frolicking in an open field, hanging out on a cloud, swinging on a swing full of beautiful flowers...and there's even a unicorn and a rainbow! Check out the video here:

    http://youtu.be/6KXwYjG8txo

    We love the chorus and overall message:

    "You make me smile, you make me dream, you make me feel alive. You make me dance, you make me feel, you make me come to life, you make me come alive, you make me feel alive."

    Who wouldn't want to be with someone who made you feel that way?? And of course, Paris looks as gorgeous as ever with her diamond encrusted nails and flower filled hair. There's one other reason we're digging Paris' look, though: did you catch her wearing one of our favorite dress designers in the video? She rocked Mac Duggal style 3908A in the part of the video where she's with the unicorn!

    Paris Hilton in Mac Duggal 3908A in "Come Alive" music video!

    Mac Duggal 3908A is a fully sequined, high fashion gown with an open back that looked absolutely fabulous on Paris! The sequins on this gown had Paris sparkling perfectly within her video, and really helped her "come alive!" The whole scene with her in the sparkly Mac Duggal gown, with the unicorn and rainbow in the background looked like something out of a dream!

    MacDuggal 3908A

    While the color that Paris wore in the video is no longer available, Mac Duggal 3908A is also available in a show-stopping Peacock color, which you can see above. It's definitely the perfect way to feel like a celebrity at Prom or your next formal event!

  • Selena Gomez Dazzles at Ischia Global Film and Music Festival

    Selena Gomez once again has shown off her incredible fashion prowess, donning more gorgeous gowns in the past 72 hours than many of us will get to wear in a lifetime.  Gomez, who turns 22 tomorrow (July 22), spent the weekend attending the Ischia Global Film & Music Fest in Italy this past weekend and definitely did so in style.

    Gomez kicked things off by attending the premiere of her new film Rudderless wearing a sheer polka-dot maxi dress with oversized pockets by Emanuel Ungaro.  The look proved to pull off the difficult feat of being both sexy while fun at the same time.  A pair of black Casadei pumps completed the ensemble.


    At a press conference the following day, the former Disney star went the risque route sporting a white bra under a sheer lace and feathered garb.  Once again, Casadei pumps finished off her look, this time in white.

    For a black-tie gala dinner, Gomez adorned the Pièce de résistance, a plunging neckline Kayat gown encrusted in gorgeous rhinestones and accompanied by a revealing thigh-high slit.  For footwear, you guessed it, black Casadei pumps.


    While walking the streets of Ischia, Gomez rocked a summery frock by Zimmerman, a Mustard Midi dress with a vibrant confetti print and white embroidery at the hemline.  Oh yeah, the sandals, they're Casadei.


    What's your favorite look from Selena's weekend in Ischia?

    The Sherri Hill 2014 Fall collection is very elegant and glamorous. While combining a mixture of short dresses, two-piece ensembles, and long gowns, each and every piece has the beauty and high fashion details one could only expect from such an elite designer. This collection is full of rich color's like black, red, emerald and royal blue. Many embellishments like intricate beading, geometric cut outs, and lavish lace are implemented throughout the entire collection, making the designs fit for a queen! We are dedicating this post as a preview of some of our favorite styles and trends to expect out soon!

    Playful Two Pieces

    Homecoming dresses are an entirely different look when comparing them to prom. They are generally a little less formal, although some schools make it a very fancy occasion. Typically, homecoming is a gathering of students uniting as one, celebrating the beginning of a new school year and showing their school spirit in hopes of leading their team to victory. Prom is more of a coming of age pastime and memorable occasion. Of course, no homecoming game is complete without a celebratory after-party! Sherri Hill's fall line is full of two-piece dresses that are fun, yet elegant enough to be worn as formal attire. Adorned with beautiful lace and various beads, these two pieces are an on going fashion hit!

  • Best Dresses of the 2014 Grammys

    While many viewers were excited to see Daft Punk perform and learn who would win album of the year (surprise! It was Daft Punk), we were just excited to see all the incredible outfits. Every year, we try to predict who will have the most stunning looks, and we think our picks hit it out of the park!

    roos1Beyonce

    We were absolutely counting down the seconds to see what Beyonce would wear – after all, she's the epitome of fierce. Lo and behold, she didn't let us down! Sexy, sophisticated, and unique, Beyonce's mermaid-silhouette gown highlighted her knockout curves: a classic cream and lace combination that was brought to the next level with the perfect red lip.

    Get the Look!

    If you want to recreate the texture, color scheme, and silhouette of Beyonce's gown, try this ivory lace mermaid dress by Sherri Hill.

     

     

    56th GRAMMY Awards - Red CarpetAnna Kendrick

    We think Anna Kendrick knows how to show some skin without overdoing it. Her amazing dress was an understated gray-tone with trendy bodice cutouts and embellishments. The slit on the skirt makes her legs look miles long! She styled it with effortless loose curls for an overall classy-but-sexy vibe.

    Get the Look!

    Anna Kendrick stood out at the Grammys without wearing bright colors, and you can too. Cop her monochromatic look and sleek silhouette with this similar gown from Jasz Couture. Gray is anything but boring when you make use of tasteful cutouts and up-top embellishments.

    Sarah Hyland

    Who says that cocktail dresses have no place on the red carpet? Sarah Hyland is nothing-but-glamour in this black-and-white color-blocked cocktail-length piece. We think the sheath silhouette is extremely modern and the minimal accessories let her outfit do all the talking. It's the perfect vintage-inspired look!

    Get the Look!

    If you're looking for a vintage silhouette, a short hemline, and black-and-white color-blocking, this geometric piece from Johnathan Kayne is just what you're looking for. Style your hair with plenty of volume, use minimal accessories, and find yourself a strappy pair of black stilettos to bring it all together.

     

    roos4Ariana Grande

    Nothing says feminine like tea-length and floral! We love this dress because it's so unique – you don't usually see dresses that are not-quite-floor-length but not-quite-cocktail-length on the red carpet, and Ariana Grande absolutely rocked it. Plus, while it seems like a lot of other attendees went for muted color palettes, she went ahead and did a pattern. She looks so flirty and fun!

    Get the Look!

    This polka-dot dress by La Femme has a similar silhouette and a fun pattern that imitates Ariana's cute look. The mesh overlay neckline gives off a retro vibe that we absolutely love. You can't go wrong with a simple pair of pumps, and there's plenty of room to play around with any color jewelry and accessories!

  • What to Wear to a Winter Wedding

    Finding the perfect dress to wear to a winter wedding can be difficult; you want to wear a cute dress, but it's cold out! Whether a formal or semi-formal wedding, here's some ideas that are perfect for showing off your fashion sense during the one month when dresses aren't quite as easy to wear.

    Formal Wedding

    This type of wedding usually means it's good to wear a long dress, since it's the winter time. Black is the perfect color for winter because the darker color is always appropriate, no matter what the setting.  It can also always be dressed up or down with accessories, depending on just how formal the black-tie affair is.

    The first dress is La Femme style 18928, an elegant and classic jersey gown with satin accents and criss-cross satin straps under the bust. The back also has satin straps that criss-cross with a rhinestone brooch in the center. Since it's a simple black gown, you can have a lot of fun changing the look with accessories.

    The second dress is a fancier number that's perfect if you know the event you are attending is on the more formal side. It's Alyce Jean De Lys style 29602, a satin and lace gown with a scoop-neck. The cap sleeves and black lace make is so perfect for the colder months!

     Semi-Formal Wedding

    If it's a semi-formal wedding, a cocktail dress is the perfect choice. This type of wedding allows you to be much more flexible with your outfit and more easily show off your style. Our two favorite cocktail dresses for a winter wedding are below - the longer sleeves make them so perfect for the winter time. And, since they're just classic cocktail dresses, they can be worn for a number of other occasions, too!

    For a funkier look, we love Jovani style 74207. It's a short cocktail dress with 3/4 length sleeves and illusion detail that shows off just enough skin, while still having that classy look for a wedding.

    Jovani style 74207

    for a cocktail dress on the more formal size, we love Alyce Jean De Lys style 29524. This chic and classy short dress has a lace over satin fabric with a scoop neckline and 3/4 length illusion sleeves. Best yet, it's a classic little black dress that can be word to many different events!

  • Dress of the Week: Shail K. Style KK3133L

    For this week, our Dress of the Week is Shail K. style KK3133L in honor of The Bachelor now being back on the air for Season 17! The Season Premiere aired on January 7th, and the second episode aired earlier this week on Monday, January 14th. This season, The Bachelor that all the ladies are vying for is Sean Lowe - a 29 year old entrepreneur from Dallas, TX.

    We picked this gorgeous Shail K. gown as our Dress of the Week because Jackie Parr, one of the ladies on the show, wore the dress on the Season Premiere! Jackie, a 25 year old cosmetics consultant from Ormond Beach, FL, couldn't have looked more stunning as she met Sean for the first time. She must have left a lasting impression because in both the episodes so far, Sean gave her a rose! We can't wait to see what happens in the coming episodes!

    Shail K. style KK3133L is a hand beaded gown that fits like a glove and accentuates your curves. It has a sexy high front slit and comes in 3 colors: Bronze, Ivory/Silver, and Platinum. Jackie wore the Bronze color on The Bachelor.
