Best Dressed: 2012 MTV EMAs

OH YES. The 2012 MTV EMAs is all about Gangnam Style. Yes, dress classy and dance cheesy. Country cutie Taylor Swift went home with the most awards but we are more interested in what she is wearing. What’s awesome about the EMAs (in my humble opinion) is the complete randomness. You can expect the most eclectic tastes in music and icons (The Hoff. Enough said.). Let’s see who wears what at the 2012 MTV EMAs and absolutely rocked it:

Best Dressed 2012 MTV EMAs: Rita Ora

Rita Ora pulled out the big guns in this dramatic, red Marchesa Fall 2012 gown. LOVE IT!

Best Dressed 2012 MTV EMAs: Alicia Keys

Alicia Keys hit the spot in this Stella McCartney tri-colour “Miracle” dress. That hair is just sharp!

Best Dressed 2012 MTV EMAs: Kim Kardashian

YES. Kim Kardashian set the benchmark in this remarkable Stephane Rolland dress with a glamorous train.

Best Dressed 2012 MTV EMAs: Pixie Geldof

I couldn’t help but notice Pixie Geldof clutching on her Maison Martin Margiela for H&M candy wrapper clutch in metallic pink. HOT!

Best Dressed 2012 MTV EMAs: Heidi Klum

I can’t decide whether I like this or not (seriously). Heidi Klum definitely stood out in this Versace Spring 2013 number.

Best Dressed 2012 MTV EMAs: Anna V

Anna V lives her life dangerously in this “smoking” zipper dress.

Best Dressed 2012 MTV EMAs: Taylor Swift

I’ve seen Taylor Swift in these white, ethereal one, too many dresses. She still looks beautiful in this J. Mendel Fall 2012 gown.

Best Dressed 2012 MTV EMAs: Lana Del Rey

Lana Del Rey excudes vintage glamour in this satin, blue dress. Simple yet chic.

Best Dressed 2012 MTV EMAs: Louise Roe

Louise Roe channels the glam gladiator in this gorgeous white dress. Not lovin’ the snakeskin clutch though!

Best Dressed 2012 MTV EMAs: Carly Rae Jepsen

Call me, maybe? Carly Rae Jepsen shines in this Johanna Johnson dress.

Keeping Up with the Kardashian Kollection A/W 2012 at Dorothy Perkins

Kardashian Kollection x Dorothy Perkins

Who’s keeping up with the Kardashians? I am! Believe it or not, I’m a sucker for reality TV (no matter how hard I try to fight it!). If you’ve been following the Kardashians, you should be familiar with their celebrity style and their fashion ventures. Today, the Kardashian Kollection launches in six selected Dorothy Perkins stores in Singapore. The Autumn/Winter 2012 collection is inspired by “Kim’s glamorous red carpet looks, Kourtney’s more Bohemian chic, and Khloe’s edgier style, from trend led pieces to fashionably tailored looks”. So, which Kardashian are you? I’m definitely a Khloe! Lucky for me, the good folks at Dorothy Perkins gave me a sneak peek at the collection and fitted me for the launch party that’s happening tonight (stay tuned for updates on my Instagram @fasheccentric).

Here are my picks from the Kardashian Kollection and beware, sizes do run small! I’m a UK 10 for this collection (normally, I’m a UK 8):

Kardashian Kollection x Dorothy Perkins

#1: Printed Blazers. I’m super diggin’ the grey printed blazer as seen on Khloe Kardashian.

#2: LBD with Lace Details. These figure-hugging dresses are versatile and ultra-sexy.

Fash-E’s Best Dressed: 2010 Primetime Emmy Awards

I was on the bus, looking at the red carpet photos from the 2010 Primetime Emmy Awards this morning on my way to work. Thank goodness for iPhone! Let’s see, this year we spotted old-Hollywood glamour, various textures, navy hues and lotsa sparkles! For the “Ultimate” Best Dressed, I can’t decide whether I like January JonesVersace or Anna Paquin‘s Alexander McQueen better… there’s no way I can pick only ONE! Here are my favourites from the 2010 Emmys red carpet:

ELECTRIFYING! I <3 everything about this metallic blue, textured gown by Versace.

Anna Paquin stands out in this bold gold/black Alexander McQueen number.

Trendspotting: How to be Hollywood Royalty

Double Strand Pearls

If pearls are good enough for Carrie Bradshaw, they’re good enough for me. It seems like celebs are lovin’ pearls and the trick is to layer them with multiple strands while pairing with the classic black dress. Of course, double is what Ashlee Simpson, Sarah Jessica Parker and Gwyneth Paltrow are doing.

Bright Jackets

There is nothing more show-stopping than loud, bright colours! I love Rihanna‘s spunky hot pink jacket. Even Katherine Heigl and Kim Kardashian are sporting bright jackets with dark denim. Smart!

Leather Mini Skirts

Bring back the 80s staple! I used to be vegan, so I’m against the usage of real leather. You can opt for latex or faux leather like Nicky HIlton. Selita Ebanks and Ashley Olsen are pairing their minis wiht monotones and fierce shoes!

Short Suits

Show off your long legs by coordinating your black blazers with shorts like Anne Hathaway, Rihanna and Natalie Portman. I love how Rihanna paired it with a black sheer top and bright orange heels! Otherwise, you can add a little colour like Natalie with a Maroon tee.

Shimmery Beige Dress

Don’t be afraid to shine amongst the crowd. Neutral with a little sparkle can be very alluring and sexy. Take the cue from Claire Danes, Mila Kunis and Heidi Klum.
