Now, time for some of that promised controversy! I think Kat Dennings looks incredible in this cleavage-tastic J. Mendel gown. The deep, dark lip, the porcelain skin that's never been sullied by a spray tan, the BOOBS. We're all so used to seeing pin-thin actresses with immobile bolt-ons that this particular variety of décolletage seems a bit scandalous, but that's why I like it. If I had Kat's figure,kate spade handbags I'd never wear clothes at all, so to me, this dress seems positively restrained.The contrast of the neutral, intricate bodice and loud, simple skirt of Leslie Manns ripped-from-the-runway Naeem Khans works for me. In a more crowded red carpet race, I don't think it would have made the top 10, but she benefited from a weak field at Sunday night's ceremonies.
That being said, it's perfect lovely and very eye-catching.Tina Fey! It always makes me so happy when the ridiculously talented Ms. Fey picks something lovely; her red carpet choices tend to be a tad hit-or-miss. This figure-skimming Vivienne Westwood gown couldn't have been more perfect for her.Modern Familys Ariel Winter is the youngest actress to make this list for her girlish-but-modern Katherine Kidd gown in an abstract floral print. I love a print on the red carpet, and too few people take the plunge. The shoes are a shame, though I like the color, but the dress and occasion require something a tad more delicately shaped. (Think open-toe.) Still, I think the dress is a real winner for a teen actress.More controversy!
I loved Julianne Moores bold, covered-up citrine gown from Raf Simons' first Dior Haute Couture collection. It's such a ballsy pick: a difficult color, a gown with both a high neck and long sleeves, a fit that's tailored within an inch of its life,Few brands evoke the level of love in the fashion community like Lanvin. Between the feminine, flattering and wearable styles to the adorable and completely obsession-worthy creative director, Alber Elbaz, whatever Lanvin sells, we want.That said, at prices in the four figures for Lanvin ready-to-wear it can be awfully intimidating to our bank accounts. What's a fashion-obsessed girl to do?Enter, THE OUTNET. Starting today, THE OUTNET is offering a huge selection of Lanvin ready-to-wear and accessories at up to 70% off. kate spade discount
Perhaps this is stating the obvious when speaking of anything wrought by Miuccia Prada, but Prada Spring 2013 was pretty weird. The clothes were a late 60s-Japense geisha mashup that often worked quite well, but hardly anyone who watched the livestream even noticed them, distracted instead by what appeared to be (and actually were, it was confirmed later) leather toe socks paired with almost every footwear look. (And truthfully, the shoes would have been controversial even without the weird leather liners.) Surprisingly, the bags were mostly very conventional and quite pretty.The standouts included a set of small, ladylike evening bags with delicate chains and the same enamel-and-rhinestone embellishments that constitute a great portion of Prada's recent costume jewelry line. They're the kind of bags that women in the 60s carried to chic parties, but with that signature irreverent Prada twist a cartoon fur flower here, an aggressive rhinestone there. The collection also contained a few interesting totes with interior structure that created a hobo strap, but this time, small and sparkly stole the show.

1 Phillip Lim is the new it kid in the accessories world, and I find myself wanting to sit at his lunch table all day, every day. Of the Phillip Lim handbag family,How to put this delicately the fashion at Sunday night's 2012 Emmy Awards was mostly not great.
A lot of it was fine, if you like sparkly, crowd-pleasing gowns or bright colors, but there were only a few wow moments to be found. Well, guess, what we found em. And we made a little post out of em, as we are wont to do.We know you've probably seen a few Emmys best-dressed lists now, but we like you guys, and we like talking about fashion with you, even when the photographers who covered the red carpet arrivals didn't bother to get us any close-up shots of anyone's handbags. So if you'll indulge us a bit,kate spade outlet we'd like to do a rundown of our favorite Emmy looks, including a few that we're sure will be controversial. Join us, won't you?We'll start with a crowd-pleaser that I actually quite like Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi in tangerine Monique Lhuillier. The material is delicate-looking and beautiful, and she wisely resisted the urge to over-accessorize a dress that makes a statement on its own with a wide swath of bright orange. Lucy Lius femme-warrior chain mail Versace number was my personal highlight of the evening. As much as I talk smack about Donatella's bags, the lady can werk when it comes to creating a stunning, architectural, thoroughly modern evening look. Also, Lucy Liu hasn't aged a single second since approximately 1998.I don't know who Ginnifer Goodwins stylist is, but she deserves a hefty bonus Goodwin's almost always wearing something that looks both totally chic and totally her. This exceptionally detailed Monique Lhuillier gown has a brilliant little rise at the front of the skirt that both lightens the visual heft of wearing something so full and gives onlookers a peek at the beautiful shoe underneath this time, a suede and clear vinyl Christian Louboutin pump that lends the whole look a bit of modernity. no ostentatious bling to interrupt the line. I live for this sort of red carpet risk, and so few people ever take it.
The ones who do always seem like they're daring the Internet to tear them to pieces. I think they should be applauded for it, and I thought the dress was beautiful strong, modern, but with just enough Dior history sewn into it.Nicole Kidman is a veteran of practically every best-dressed list known to man, and this blue beaded Antonio Berardi column looks wonderful on her. It'd also look pretty great as a knee-length cocktail dress.Last but not least, we have Revenge star Emily VanCamp in light-as-a-weather dove grey J. Mendel. This dress is much better in pictures than it was in the wonky lighting that the TV cameras had on the carpet. Grey that soft can be challenging, but it doesn't wash her out at all. This design would also make a great wedding dress for a non-traditional bride it's pretty in a way that will translate for years to come. the standout star has been and continues to be the Pashli Satchel. For Spring 2013, a faded floral canvas print adorns the bag. You know what, I'm in love. We all see other designers utilize florals for spring; it's not a novel idea, but it's one that can be done in a modern way think Proenza Schouler Spring 2012. This particular pattern that Lim has chosen is stunning; there's just something about the stiff shape of the bag and the geometrical lines that works so well with a floral print on a black background. There are some other designs that stand out, but I'm really still in my Pashli phase, so I have a hard time seriously considering any of the other items. http://www.katespadebagdiscount.org
