Three things I like in a gown. Details, drama, and dreaminess.
There were sooooo many great dresses last night, I really must applaud the ladies. I didn’t see any major fugly missteps. Amazing! Some don’t photograph as well as others to show the stunning detail work, but you get the gist.
These are some of my top favorites and honestly, many more that were worthy of a photo. At this point, there are so many Best Dressed lists and commentators and panels and talks on TV, blogs, Social Media. Ugh. I’m already over it myself!
If I were to tweak anything, I would have taken that pink chiffon wrap off of Lady Gaga. The dress was everything and that wasn’t needed. You look fab, Gaga!
Cheers to all the Beauties!

P.S. I would have worn Kate Hudson’s Versace gown in a heartbeat. Old Hollywood glam. Perfection head to toe.
Kristin Chenowith in Cavalli, Jennifer Lawrence in Dior, Lady Gaga in Versace, Lupita Nyong’o in custom Prada, Cate Blanchett in Armani Prive, Charlize Theron in Dior.
Balmain and Olivier Rousteing get it right again with their FW2014 collection, Jungle Fever, during Paris Fashion Week. What I adore about Balmain is the consistent eye for detail, the belted and nipped in waists, the femininity with an edge, and substantial designs. You never feel that Olivier phones it in, like some other top design houses I’ve seen this season. I want to see fine pieces of art, not just fabric flung over hangers with a heartbeat. These pieces (a few of the 46 looks) were some of my favorites.
Whether hardcore, fun and funky or outright beaming chic, Balmain hits the high notes and take you to places that make you breathe heavy and moan with excitement.
