Trend Alert: Waist bands and belts at the 2012 Emmys

Several dresses took my breath away in yesterday’s Emmy awards but some made me go, OUCH; particularly, Kelly Osbourne’s one shouldered lavender dress; I expected more from a Fashion Police icon! We had solid colored satins, chiffon; metallic dresses; bizarre floral prints and a mix of this and that. With the variety of outfits in various colors, designs and textures  it  takes  keen eyes to spot a trend, we got them; for some reason there were several waist belts and bands.:-) In my opinion: Rancic in her chic high slit black dress; Falco in a metallic gold belt on top of an hour glass illusion dress;  and Paulso in a black on top of a beautifully flower embroidered ballroom dress wore it best. What do you think? Have the designers been inspired by the ancient Greek?

Sacred Beauty Police – Ladies in Venice

When an event is held in one of the fashion power house of the world, I expect every one to dress up for the occasion. Here is a pick of my favorite looks at the Venice International Film Festival. The trends were classic smokey eyes in shimmery earth tones, bronze, copper, pinks; perfect long voluminous lashes; just blushed contoured cheeks and nude, pink and red lips. If I had to choose a phrase for the trending makeup looks I would call it – sophisticated socialite. Even though most celebrities had their game right through out the festive, particularly impressive were  Vanessa Hudgens’ flawless just tanned face, Freida Pinto’s shimmery brown classic smokey eyes, Maika Monroe’s long separated lashes, Keira Knightley’s just pinch of blush cheeks and the tangy-red lips of Miranda Kerr.
