Billboard Music Awards 2012

Carrie Underwood’s Cinderella-like gown by Oscar De La Renta. Ah perfect... I love this dress so much!

Katy Perry in Bluemarine Fall 2012.  

Katy looks lovely in lilac, she wore a gown with an open back. Her iced-out metallic lilac drop-waist gown features a bodice covered with iridescent sequins before cascading down to a lightly embellished chiffon skirt.

The purple curly locks look good. Her lipstick, unfortunately, just doesn’t work with such a beautiful soft dress... too heavy for Spring. 

Brandy in mauve-colored fringe mini dress from Herve Leger by Max Azria.

Brandy debuted with a new hair look and it's her best look by far. She wins best styling in my opinion. Brandy’s frock features fringe detailing, a plunging V-neckline and a scoop back. The dress also features metallic elements, which brandy matched perfectly with her Christian Louboutin gold peep toe slingbacks. The six inch snakeskin stamped leather slingbacks have a double platform and rose gold-tone studded bow detail at the toe.

MET GALA 2012 Fashion most Glamourous night. My pick for best dressed.

"Sexy futuristic, ultra- see through lace and shiny sequence gowns on the red carpet." It's not surprise that January Jones, Beyonce, Karolina Kurkova were shinning examples of style on the Met Gala's Red carpet event this evening.

Mad Women Fashion.

Mad Men brings back vintage/retro-chic. 

60's is one of my favorite fashion eras and this is one of the main reason why I like to watch this show. I think the way this era is being represented is  brilliantly done and the wardrobe choices are well put together. The mad men women styles evolve as their characters and the time setting. 

When I started watching the show I was more of a fan of Betty's classic style a reminiscent of Grace Kelly, Mad Men's costume designer Janine Bryant has described her as "a character who is trying to create the perfect facade"

Designer Janine Bryant said that Betty's style has evolved.  She use to wear a lot of cardigans and full skirts.  But as she became more independent she began wearing body conscious shift dresses, sleeveless shirts and shows more cleavage. Betty is definitely more Jackie O than Kelly Grace by spotting a neutral colour palette and pearl necklaces. 
In Season 5 Betty is now depressed and has gained a ton of weight, so it's interesting how her sense of style is lacking. 

As of right now Megan is my Fashion icon, she wears mini dresses and bold prints. 
Megan wears figure-hugging mini dresses, zigzag a la Missoni long cardigans and low-cut polka-dot blouses.  The epitome of more daring and expressive fashion trends of mid 60's, which I Iove

She's a go getter, she reminds me of a preppy schoolgirl.  We see her in a lot of plaid and a lot of pleated skirts.  Now that she’s really becoming important at  the office, her wardrobes have matured little by little with every season. 


Joan is the seductive secretary.  She loves the hourglass silhouette and she’ll maintain that style.  According to Designer Janine Bryan "Joan is a little bit Sophia Loren, a little bit Lana Turner and Marilyn Monroe too! They were sex icons.”

She wears a lot of body conscious dresses, also pencil skirts and blouses. They’re good basics that you could mix and match and women wear that same classic style today.  I think now she's wearing more outfits that are less serious. It's not about getting men to respond to her physique like it  was in the earlier season.

This season has motivated me to put together some outfits inspired by the Mad Women characters from the show. Stay Tuned..
