The fashion looks at the 2014 Latin Grammy Awards last night was all about bold rich colors, sheer nudes, metallics and sequin gowns. With the backdrop being the MGM Hotel, many of the styles embodied the sexiness and playfulness of Las Vegas. While some estrellas nailed their looks with perfection, others shocked us with less than fortunate looking gowns. I was on the scene spotting all of the fashion fails and mishaps of the evening.
Once the Latin Grammy's red carpet is rolled out, Latin celebs make sure to rock the most daring, shiny and sexy looks of the season. We wish all of the estrellas could make fashion hits, but unlike their music careers some of these stars end up becoming red carpet flops. We are taking a look at the worst Latin Grammy fashion fails of all time. Warning: Some of these looks are pretty embarrassing.
You guys, I am so excited about this year's outerwear trends. The textures, the muted colors, the menswear inspiration, the classic vibes -- I just love it all. I wish I could have a jacket in each and every one of these styles, but there just aren't enough weeks in the season for that to be practical. There are however, plenty of budget-friendly options to make buying one or two feasible -- not to mention, a whole lof of fun.
If you've winced at the sight of your pancita bulging over the top of your jeans and creating the dreaded "muffin top" effect, don't panic. Before you buy a year's worth of Spanx, take a deep breath and remember that every woman has some body part or facial feature that she's self-conscious about (even if it's part of what makes her stunning and unique). If, for you, that area is the midsection, then the key to feeling confident in your clothes lies in figuring out how to shop for garments that disguise this section of the body. And here's the best news: with temperatures dropping, it's the perfect time to experiment with some on-trend fall fashions that create a flattering optical illusion, streamlining your silhouette and concealing your belly. Here are 10 great pieces that will make you look lean and fabulous this fall:
Chiquis Rivera is never one to shy away from showing off her curves. A few days ago, Chiquis attended Premios de la Radio 2014 and looked absolutely glamourous on the red carpet. She knows how to turn up her inner Beyonce and we don't hate her one bit for it. Could her new diva look be revamped up because she's newly single? Probably. We have the chismes!
Calvin Klein is trying to make an effort to advertise to curvy girls, but the new campaign for Calvin Klein's "Perfectly Fit" underwear line just doesn't make the cut. The black and white ads feature brunette model Myla Dalbesio, who is a size 10. That in itself is pretty "life changing" in the fashion industry, but calling her "plus-sized" is absurd when the average woman rocks a size 12 or 14 panty or thong. This mislabeling doesn't deserve any props. Now beautiful size 10 women have to walk around thinking they're plus-sized? I don't think so.
Temperatures are dropping, but that's no excuse to let your fashion sense go into hibernation. In fact, this is the perfect time to turn up the heat on your wardrobe. Personally, I like mixing and matching cool weather accents, like long sleeves and high necklines, with hot, curve-hugging cuts. It's not always easy, but I've figured out a way to get everything I want in a look, without having to spend too much money: buy fall dresses!
Fashion experts are all about teaching you how to dress for your body type and playing up your curves, but do they show you how to shop for clothes after major weight loss? Dressing a body that was once a size 16 and is now on its way to a 6 isn't so easy. In fact, it's a pretty difficult process to say the least. I mean, how do your dress your new body that's still changing every day?
Aging gracefully is no longer a concept most celebrities understand. Donatella Versace's beauty transformation is the perfect example of too much Botox and laser treatments. A doctor should have cut her off a long time ago. The youngest Versace sister is an icon and a rare beauty, which I admire. She has something in common with the likes of Ivy Queen and Lady Gaga. They may not be traditionally pretty, but they have that certain something--that za za zoo. Either you're born with it or you're not.
Oh my GODDESS, I just saw images of what can only be described as hot moms-to-be strutting the runway for Lingerie Fashion Week and it made me all kinds of happy. These mamacitas look hot and I LOVE that a brand that is marketing lingerie to moms and moms-to-be actually pays tribute to the beauty of pregnancy by using honest to goodness pregnant women in their runway shows.
