And the Oscar goes to…

A splash of color and metallic accents, that’s how we can describe the 2011  Academy Awards Red Carpet. As I live far far away from the wonderful event that took place yesterday at The Kodak Theater, i had to watch it live on E Entertainment. I would give them a “C’ though for the coverage. Endless commercial breaks, i couldn’t see all the dresses right ( for example Helen Miller’s dress i only saw  from shoulders up), Ryan Seacrest forgot to ask the stars he interviewed who was the designer, and so on…. Bad, bad Seacrest! But enough with the bashing and let’s get down to business.

I present to you the best looks of the 2011 Academy Awards:

Mila Kunis in Elie Saab

Gwyneth Paltrow in Calvin Klein ( my favourite)

Cate Blanchet in Givenchy













Jennifer Hudson in Versace

Sandra Bullock in Vera Wang

Halle Berry in Marchesa












Hilary Swank in Gucci

Natalie Portman in Rodarte

Amy Adams in L'wren Scott












Jennifer Lawrence in Calvin Klein ( she stated she is an Oscar noobie)

Michelle Williams in Chanel

Scarlett Johansson in Dolce Gabbana



To be or not to be a bridezilla?

Who the hell invented this horrific term i do not know, but i really really wanna forget about it. I know that brides all over the world have a say in this, but really…?!? You girls like to be called that? Do you really wanna be a bridezilla? I’ll tell you this much: by behaving like a crazy” biatch” you will not only annoy everybody around you, but you’ll miss the whole thing. You will miss the magic that is planning a wedding. Why not enjoy looking for a dress? It’s fun, it’s girly, it’s magic, it’s what you’ve always been dreaming about since you found out that someday you’ll be a bride. Do you really want to ruin that experience?!? For most of us it will happen only once. A once in a lifetime opportunity! So my dear bridezillas: stop it! The wedding will be planned exactly like YOU wish, the dress will be the one YOU want, and the whole day will be entirely for you so start smiling, it will not only help you but also it will make the planning alot more fun!

So, what do you say we look at some trends for 2011?  There are gorgeous styles waiting for you in bridal boutiques.

The princess- The ball gown is making a comeback this year. So if you either love the clasics or would like to add a little edge to your dress, the princess is the look to go for this year.

Classic ball gown

The mermaid/trumpet dress. This is one of my favourite styles and we can find so many beautiful dresses in this cut. The mermaid dress best fits a tall slender figure, as oppossed to the trumpet cut that will make you look taller. So if you are a petit girl the trumpet is the style for you.

The Empire cut- this is by far my favourite wedding gown style and it fits any kind of figure. They are usually made out of chiffon or silk and it floats beautifully around your body when you move. They are not heavy dresses and are comfortable and easy to wear. The empire is perfect for the greek godess look.

And now i would very much like to present to you the best dress i’ve seen so far this season… and the winner is…

This goes out to all brides to be : there is a style for every single one of you out there! So hit the stores, start trying on dresses and  you will find the one that fits you perfectly and that’s the moment you’ll say “this is my dres”. Enjoy, you are a bride now!
