The Oscars 2011: My Top 5!

Hello red carpet! Well, to tell you the truth, I'm not very much of a awards ceremony fan, but this year seemed different. It felt like there was enough off centre type talent to make it interesting- and I'm not disappointed. Here are my top 5 of the night.

#5: Michelle Willams
I used to hate Michelle Williams (mostly due to my Joey alligence during that fateful Dawsons Creek period), but I'm well and truely a fan now. This may not be the most drop dead look but she always pulls off an amazingly tailored, beautiful look Doesn't she just radiate?

#4: Scarlett Johansson
It's hard to deny that Scarlett Johansson is one sexy woman. It would be so easy to play that up, but the fact that she doesn't make me love this dress. That and the delicious purple and stylish, simple hair.

#3: Mila Kunis
I don't know why Mila Kunis looks so unhappy because her dress is gorgeous. Elie Saab of course! The colour works great on her, and it's so simple and feminine, and has enough detail to keep it interesting. I don't really know her style very much, but this is a good start!

#2: Hailee Steinfeld
I don't know who Hailee Steinfeld is but I DO know that she is 14 and that I'm completely jealous of this dress. I'm not completely sure of the hair and make-up- she looks a little washed out to me, but hey, I'm sitting at home and NOT at the Oscars so I guess she still a winner.

#1: Anne Hathaway
Gush gush gush. I think my jaw just dropped. Go Anne Hathaway, I think you're my golden girl of the moment. A red to die-for, a classic silouette, and beautiful detailing. Perfect. I can already feel the wedding dress copies being sewn.

Did you have any other Oscar favourites? Who's your number 1?

Lady Gaga + Vogue = L.O.V.E

by Nicole Bugante

Lady Gaga graces the cover of Vogue's "Power Issue" and we love the fashion! From Alexander McQueen to Haider Ackermann, the queen of the fashion and pop scene shows off her personality and why exactly she was Born This Way. Her unique personality and style are showed off in this lovely issue, and we can see why she is taking power of the pop and fashion industries - unique!

Steed Lord: 123 If You Want Me

Absolutely loving this video by Steed Lord at the moment. Check it out for some serious fashion inspiration.

We guarantee by the end of it, you'll be ready to rock out:
- 70's pastel colours. We're already reaching out for blue eyeshadow!
- Ruffles ruffles and more ruffles. Extra points for anything shiny.
- PRINTS- and lots of them. Perfectly mis-matched of course.
- Avant-garde dance moves with some hot-pinked haired back-up dancers.
- The ultimate accessories right now- an oversized fan and supercute umbrella (did we mention it's been about a thousand degrees in Sydney right now?)

Now excuse me, we need to go practice our dance moves and go look for some back-up dancers...

As we all would have guessed, New York Fashion Week came and went by in a flash and everyone's talking, what did everyone wear, to which show! We've heard about the line-up of events, couture magic and front-row fashion but honestly, what we really want to see is fashion on the street. Real people styling themselves, as some say. We'd love to think dressing up for a world renowned event would be somewhat of a breeze for these seasoned fashion week goers, but coupled with ice cold weather - we're definitely convinced otherwise. As tricky as it seems, we believe that the harshest conditions always bring out the best in people. So this NYFW, we witness myriads of layers cleverly put together, finished with pops of color every here & there. And not forgetting tasteful combinations of prints and accessories that never fail to standout.

Un Fête dans le Papier

There are so many things I love about fashion, but one of things I love the most is being able to be carried away into your own story. Whether you've added some red lipstick for a dash of glamour, had a brush with some bunnies ears, or even donned a pair of big 70's sunnies, we've all played 'dress up' at some time during our lives!

So you can imagine my delight when I went to the opening night of The Paper Mills exhibition called Un Fête dans le Papier (A Feast On Paper) which took dressing up to a whole new level. I already love TPM because it's hidden smack bang in the middle of the CBD and adds a little pizazz to an otherwise concrete space, but their exhibitions are getting more and more "gasp!" worthy.

Un Fête dans le Papier is an exhibition made entirely out of paper (even the piano!), and to kick it off they had a massive feast with a cast dressed to the nines in the most amazing black & white costumes. It was if I'd walked down a seemingly innocent city lane and straight into a crazy Alice in Wonderland/Marie Antoinette/Mardi Gras dream- and I loved every second of it. I hope you like the photos.

So lovelies, next time you're looking into that wardrobe of yours I hope this dream gives you some inspiration. Whether it be the hard-to-deny-coolness of a black and white palette, or a fabulous statement piece, remember dressing up isn't just for kids, tell your own story!
