Katy Perry misses the mark with this messy fashion fail

Originally published on AOL.com

We often appreciate Katy Perry’s style risks on the red carpet (take her Tom Ford moment at the 2017 GRAMMYs, for example), but the “Firework” singer missed the mark during last night’s 25th Annual QVC ‘FFANY Shoes On Sale’ Gala.

The pop star opted for a pink sequin jumpsuit by Galia Lahav featuring a long train, styled with sheer long gloves, and matching pumps from her Katy Perry collection, complete with a pink hair bow. 

In theory, the jumpsuit had the potential to be super chic due to its stellar fit, but the over-accessorizing took this look to a place it didn’t need to go and overlooked the pink message for BCA. Not to mention, the platinum prom girl hairstyle and glittery eyeshadow was a little cliche for our liking.

Perry works with celebrity stylist Jamie Mizrahi who also styles Kate Hudson, Jessica Alba and was responsible for Leighton Meester’s epic look from the AMAs earlier this week. Check it out below!

The legacy of Law Roach – From Zendaya to Celine Dion

Originally published on AOL.com

If you didn’t immediately google who Celine Dion’s stylist was after she performed “My Heart Will Go On” during the 2017 Billboard Music Awards, then the self-proclaimed image-architect and stylist behind the era of Dion’s couture comeback will tell you. His name is Law Roach.

“That is probably one my career-defining moments. I had never received so many texts and emails and DMs on social media from other stylist and my peers. I still get chills every time I think about it. It was such an emotional moment for me to part of that. She’s celebrating this song that literally is so important to her career and it was the 20th year anniversary of the ‘Titanic.’ There were so many things that lead up to it and it was the only time so far that I literally cried,” Roach told AOL exclusively during an NYFW Disney celebration for Minnie Mouse’s 90th year anniversary.

“When that chandelier came up I just bursted out into tears and then I looked around the room and everyone was crying – rappers were crying! It was the voice, the women and the legend and the song and that dress. It was super, super powerful to be a part of that.” 

That dress Roach speaks of was a white haute couture gown by Stephane Rolland, a designer he’s never worked with before. The importance of working with newer brands and emerging talent is crucial to Law’s success. 

The 40-year-old stylist with a tight roster, including Ariana Grande and Demi Lovato, is most famous for his work with Zendaya and Celine. In 2014 Zendaya and Law went people watching outside Lincoln Center during New York Fashion Week, where he threw on a bold yellow and cobalt coat (by an unfamiliar designer, MIUNIKU) over her simple jeans and white tee outfit. That was the first time Zendaya experienced a swarm of photographers. The outfit generated major street style buzz, putting Law on the fashion map for the first time.

Law, who recently made history as the first African American stylist to cover The Hollywood Reporters 25 most powerful stylist issue, has proved that his styling talents have exceeded far beyond street style. When I asked him why it’s still important to keep young designers on his radar, he recalled that iconic Zendaya moment.

“I think that’s why you do it because anytime you have the ability to change someone’s life for the better, you should it. I think sometimes people get really caught up on working with established designers but the people that are coming up are the next Marc Jacobs or Michael Kors or whatever. It’s so important to support young talent and I kind of built my career on doing that. Like that MIUNIKU coat that you mentioned, they went on to compete for the LVMH Prize for Young Fashion Designers. It’s those types of things where you build this relationship and it becomes part of your legacy too. In a selfish way, you do it for that. I was new talent and people supported me.”

AMAs 2018: All of Tracee Ellis Ross’ best looks of the night

Originally published on AOL.com

Tracee Ellis Ross hosted Tuesday night’s 2018 American Music Awards for the second year in a row.

The “black-ish” star, who is known for her of-the-moment bold fashion choices, made the decision to wear all black designers for tonight’s gigs. 

Ross started out on the red carpet wearing a menswear look by Pyer Moss. The dusty rose suit featuring black lapels was fresh off this past spring 2019 runway. The actress kept her hair slicked down, revealing statement earrings and a diamond choker bib necklace. 

Next, Tracee sported a black sequin jumpsuit layered with a Gucci cape for her opening musical dance number. And while Gucci’s creative director, Alessandro Michele, is Italian – the cape was designed in collaboration with Dapper Dan who recently joined Gucci in a joint venture in a new Harlem atelier.

The two-time AMA host transitioned from a beautiful golden geometric glasswork gown by CD Greene (which was perhaps her best look of the night) into a political statement. Rocking a white tee shirt with the words ‘I am a voter’ tucked into a red volumized long skirt by Shanel with matching lips, Ross perfectly executed the modern day’s movement into fashion.

Following her chic political stance, Tracee took an unexpected turn into a full leopard cat-suit by South Carolina born designer Sergio Hudson, complete with a matching beret and mega shades. 

Ross then opted for a strong-suited long black sequin gown designed by Oliver Rousting of Balmain. The strong shoulders and military-esque buttons created the perfect girl-power ensemble. 

The colorful pallets continued, though this time, Ross went with a statement-making mermaid gown designed by Claude Kamen of Lavie that featured massive bell sleeves and a plunging neckline. Right before her final act, the actress donned a bright blue trench coat by Déshon that doubled as a maxi dress, turning her previous playful fashion looks into Inspector-Gadget chic. 

For her last outfit change of the night, Ross slipped into a sexy coral jumpsuit from Cushnie’s Spring 2019 collection, which turned out to be her most minimal look of the night.

There were some ups and downs, and a few hidden looks in between but overall Tracee Ellis Ross never fails to give us an epic fashion show.

Bridal Fall 2018: Reem Acra creates a collection for dreamers

Originally published on AOL.com

When Reem Acra and Preston Bailey come together to put on a bridal show, you know you’re in for a full night of glamour. 

For Fall 2019, Reem Acra took over the New York Public Library to showcase her latest bridal collection, taking cues from the modern bride. “The Celebration Collection” was diverse with shorter-length cocktail dresses to full ball gowns that were bodiced at the waist. Shying away from the usual nuptial palette, Acra infused mints, peaches, metallics and baby blues into her designs.

The most statement-making element about the collection was more about the beautiful fabrications than it was the floor-length veils.  The idea of lace layered with tulle and the integration of flower appliques showed off the complexity of the brands’ craftsmanship. 

“The idea of creating the world’s most over the top- glamourous bridal dinner party was an idea I have wanted to do for years. I loved the idea of combining my ready-to-wear with bridal for the Celebration collection- injecting color and fun into the show. Partnering with Preston to create the set was a true honor and joy, as a Preston Bailey event is an event like no other. I can think of no better complement to my gowns than the glamorous fantasy world that he has created in the New York Public Library, “says Acra in the brand’s press notes.

Overall, it was a collection that girls who dream want to live in.

Fans at Christina Aguilera’s sold out Radio City Music Hall show were in for a surprise when former president Bill Clinton and 2016 presidential nominee Hillary Clinton were spotted from their orchestra seats.

A source shared exclusively with AOL that concertgoers were “climbing on seats and causing pandemonium ” just to get a snap of the political power couple right before the show started. 

“Daily Show” producer, Matt Polidoro took to his Instagram to post a video of the pair entering the venue.

“I wonder what @hillaryclinton’s favorite Christina Aguilera album is, Lotus or Bionic?” he captioned the footage.

However, the Clinton’s weren’t the only political party in town. Huma Abedin, famed wife of former Democratic congressman Anthony Weiner was photographed joining the Clintons on their night out. 

Christina Aguilera also surprised fans by bringing out rapper Lil’ Kim to perform their iconic song “Lady Marmalade” and A Great Big World to duet the emotional ballad “Say Something.”
